NEXT ONE OUT? Sean Hannity Under Attack As Fox News Continues Its War Against Conservatives • Now The End Begins

“Now, I’ve worked for radio for 30 years. I’ve been right here at the Fox News Channel for 21-and-a-half years. I’m very proud of that and during this time, there’ve always been efforts and attempts to smear and slander and besmirch me and other conservatives. But it has never been as intense and completely insane as it is right now.”

In the opening monologue of his Monday Fox News Channel broadcast, Sean Hannity, host of “Hannity,” confronted attacks against him and his character head-on

EDITOR’S NOTE: In his opening monologue, when Sean Hannity references attacks by “liberal fascists” it is well understood that one of those people he is referring to is Rupert Murdoch’s son, far left Liberal James Murdoch. James Murdoch, and his Clinton Foundation employee wife Kathryn Murdoch, are radically reorganizing Fox News into CNN 2.0. Though they preach “tolerance, diversity and inclusion”, Liberals are some of the nastiest, most vindictive people you are ever going meet. They will stop at NOTHING at advance their Marxist agenda. Watch your back, Sean, the calls are coming from “inside the house“.

Sean Hannity said he could no longer remain silent and that he had hired a team of “the best attorneys in this country” to work on his behalf.

Transcript as follows:

I have to start by addressing a well-orchestrated effort by the intolerant left in this country that is designed to silence every conservative voice and by any means necessary. Now, I’m speaking out tonight so that you, our audience, will understand what is really happening and what is at stake when it comes to freedom of speech in this country. Now, these tactics are right out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rule for Radicals” playbook.

Now, I’ve worked for radio for 30 years. I’ve been right here at the Fox News Channel for 21-and-a-half years. I’m very proud of that and during this time, there’ve always been efforts and attempts to smear and slander and besmirch me and other conservatives. But it has never been as intense and completely insane as it is right now.

Now, I want you to understand, every single minute, every single second I am on the air — radio, TV — there is somebody likely being paid, recording and monitoring every single word that comes out of my mouth all in the hopes that I may see something they can twist and distort and use against me and try to destroy my reputation and get my conservative voice out the air.

Now, it has only gotten worse in the age of President Trump. Now, it’s no secret I have been in supporter of the president and of course his policies. And quite simply, these liberal fascists — they can’t stand conservative voices.

Now for those of you who don’t know me well, I have a pretty thick skin. I call out people, I say things I give my point of view four hours a day. And for all these years, there has been this an unrelenting attack against me. But in light of recent events, I’ve come to the conclusion I can no longer remain silent and I can no longer let the left slander against me slide.

So, from now on, I want you to be informed of what I am doing and why I’m doing it. If there’s any person or group or any organization, any media outlet that slanders, lies about me, besmirch as me and my character, I am going to be calling them out. At this point, enough is not.

I have hired a team of some of the best attorneys in this country to work with me and on my behalf. Now, the breaking point came this weekend when an individual for over a decade has made the most outrageous, unfair, untrue allegations against me has now resurfaced by resurfaced by making ridiculous and completely untrue claims.

Now, this person went on a radio show on Friday and made more unfounded accusations against me, which this person is now interestingly recanting after I made my statement, but it was only after I responded to these baseless and false smears. This is not the first time I have had to deal with this individual.

Now, this person has repeatedly spread lies about me. I’ll give you an example. Back in 2010, I was raising money for the Freedom Alliance, a charity that offers college scholarships to the children of killed veterans and their families. And in a blog post, the individual falsely accused me and members of the charity of skimming and stealing money that was donated.

This of course was easily proven false. And, in spite of the fact that we proved each and every single allegation to be untrue and inaccurate at the time, I was never given an apology. There is no correction that was issued.

Now this person has made another slander accusation and in response, I released this statement which now the press has picked up and I will read it for you:

Let me be clear. The comments about me on a radio show this week by this individual are 100 percent false and a complete fabrication. This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements to get against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation.

The individual is not just slandered me over the years but also many people who this individual disagrees with. This individual desperately seeks attention by any means necessary including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric.

My patience with this individual is over. I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual.

Now, in this fiercely divided and vindictive climate, I will no longer allow slander to go unchallenged, as I see this to be a coordinated effort afoot to silence those with conservative views.

I will fight every single lie about me about any and all legal means available to me as an American.

Now, I want you to know, my audience, the importance of what is happening here. This is not about Sean Hannity. This is not about one person. There is now a coordinated attempt to silence the voice of every outspoken conservative in this country.

If we don’t stop it right now, they won’t be any conservative voices on radio or television left. Now, I’m not the only one that these liberal fascist routinely targeted. Like me, conservatives are monitored on radio and TV, every word they say — in contrary to the alt radical left stated position — they’re so open-minded, liberals.

Not true. Liberal fascism is a lie and well in America today. Their goal is simple: They want to shut up and shut down and silence all conservative voices by any means necessary.

Here is the difference: Unlike the left, I don’t have any problem with what the other side says. If you want to listen to liberals on radio or TV, read their articles, follow them on social media, go for it.

Now, I’ll call them out for the bias. I will explain why they were wrong. I will debate them. But I will never, ever say they should be silenced. And I won’t support boycotts to attack their advertisers, a roundabout way of silencing them.

So let me be clear tonight, everyone who is publicly supporting President Trump is a target. This is very political. We have seen repeatedly that the left knows no limits in these efforts.

They have gone after and attacked the first lady. They have attacked members of the president’s family, every White House advisor. They’ve even attacked his daughter and his 10-year-old son.

Now, ultimately their goal is to cause as much collateral damage as they can to anybody that supports the president. They have tried to undermine the outcome of this election since November 9.

Please note, this is not about me. This is about the left concocting boycotts all in an attempt to silence prominent conservative voices. If we don’t take a stand now, if we allow this to happen now, I am telling you, America as we know it — freedom of speech as we know it is over. Let’s stop the boycotts and it silencing opposition voices.

Let all of Americans make their own decisions. source

CHRISLAM UPDATE: Pope Francis To Visit Egypt In Bid To ‘Pave The Way To Tolerance And Inter-Faith Relations’ • Now The End Begins

In Tuesday’s message, Francis said he hoped the trip could bring “fraternity and reconciliation to all children of Abraham, particularly in the Islamic world, in which Egypt occupies a primary position” and “offer a valid contribution to inter-religious dialogue with the Islamic world”.
chrislam-pope-francis-visit-egypt-2017-muslim-islam-one-world-religion

Pope Francis hopes to mend ties with Muslims on his trip to Egypt on Friday but faces criticism from church conservatives for meeting Islamic religious leaders after a spate of deadly attacks against Christians.

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Amos 3:3 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: In an official video released by the Catholic EWTN channel, the Pope’s visit to Egypt is being billed as a “message of reconciliation from an ambassador of peace”. EWTN goes on to say that Pope Francis “goes to Egypt to pave the way to tolerance and inter-faith relations” in this Muslim majority nation. In a word, it’s Chrislam. In another word, it’s the One World Religion of Antichrist. 

In a video message to the people of Egypt on Tuesday, Francis said the world had been “torn by blind violence, which has also afflicted the heart of the your dear land” and said he hoped his trip could help peace and inter-religious dialogue.

Security is a primary concern less than three weeks after 45 people were killed in attacks on Coptic Christian churches in Alexandria and Tanta, claimed by Islamic State, on Palm Sunday. But Francis has insisted on using an ordinary car during his 27 hours in Cairo, continuing his practice of shunning armored limousines in order to be closer to people.

Chrislam is brought to you via a joint effort between Rick Warren and Pope Francis:

The sheer unmitigated gall and audacity of Emergent Church heretic Rick Warren to claim to be speaking for Christians while he calls Pope Francis “our pope”. Christians don’t have a Pope, Catholics do. But when your mission is to merge the Laodicean Church with Islam, you need a “pope” somewhere there in the witches brew end times mix. 

Francis will meet President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi; Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, the world’s most influential center of Sunni Islamic theology and learning; and Pope Tawadros II, head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, who barely escaped the Alexandria bombing. Sisi declared a three-month state of emergency after the attacks.

A main reason for the trip is to try to strengthen relations with the 1,000-year-old Azhar center that were cut by the Muslim side in 2011 over what it said were repeated insults of Islam by Francis’s predecessor, Pope Benedict.

Ties with the center were restored last year after Tayeb visited the Vatican. Tayeb, widely seen as one of the most moderate senior clerics in Egypt, has repeatedly condemned Islamic State and its practice of declaring others as apostates and infidels as a pretext for waging violent jihad.

Pope Francis Video Message to Egypt April 25th – 2017

The Vatican says that Francis, who denounces the idea of violence in God’s name, is convinced that Christian-Muslim dialogue is more important now than ever.

Papal aides say a moderate like Tayeb would be an important ally in condemning radical Islam.

In Tuesday’s message, Francis said he hoped the trip could bring “fraternity and reconciliation to all children of Abraham, particularly in the Islamic world, in which Egypt occupies a primary position” and “offer a valid contribution to inter-religious dialogue with the Islamic world”.

The pope’s views are not shared by all Catholics, however. Some conservatives say there should be no dialogue with Islam and that a “war of religion” is in progress.

Italian historian Roberto de Mattei said the Palm Sunday attacks should be “a brusque reality check for Pope Francis”.

Pope Francis in Egypt

The perpetrators were “not unbalanced or crazy but bearers of a religious vision that has been combating Christianity since the seventh century,” De Mattei, editor of the conservative monthly magazine Christian Roots, wrote in an editorial.

Novus Ordo Watch, an ultra-conservative Catholic blog, blasted the Vatican over the logo of the trip, which displays the Muslim crescent and the cross together, and derided the pope as “Mr. Coexist”.

A leading Catholic scholar of Islam, Egyptian-born Father Samir Khalil Samir, said that Francis meant well but was naive.

“I think his ignorance of Islam does not help dialogue. He has said often that we know that Islam is a religion of peace but this is simply a mistake,” Samir, who is based in Beirut, told reporters in Rome.

“We know there are certainly times of peace and a willingness for peace on the part of many Muslims but I can’t read the Koran and pretend that it is a book that is oriented towards peace,” he said.

The region has witnessed a massive exodus of Christians fleeing war and persecution in the past few decades, accelerated recently by the rise of Islamic State. Francis said in his message he hoped his visit could be a “consolation and … encouragement to all Christians in the Middle East”.

He will visit Cairo’s largest Coptic cathedral to pray for the 28 people killed in a Christmas season blast last year and lay flowers in their memory.

Rights activists are concerned about the pope’s meeting with President Sisi.

Sisi has sought to present himself as an indispensable bulwark against terrorism in the region, deflecting Western criticism that he has suppressed political opposition and human rights activists since he was elected in 2014.

Asked if the pope would raise human rights concerns, Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said Francis had made “trips more delicate than this one,” adding “let’s see what the pope has to say.” source

White House Prayer Sessions Bring God Into Governance – Breaking Israel News | Latest News. Biblical Perspective.

“When the righteous are increased, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people sigh.” Proverbs 29:2 (The Israel Bible™)

Since the beginning of the White House transition in January, members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet have been gathering for weekly prayer sessions led by Capitol Ministries Pastor Ralph Drollinger. Though religion has always been part of the White House, these sessions include an impressive number of the highest-ranking members of the Trump Administration.

Capitol Ministries provides Bible studies, evangelism and discipleship to political leaders in over 40 US state capitols. The ministry also hosts separate weekly Bible studies in the House and Senate.

“In terms of a country’s health and direction, when its leaders are seeking God, the nation is in a position to be blessed by God,” Drollinger told CBN News.

Though not personally observant, Trump was blessed several times by pastors and rabbis during his presidential campaign. He has yet to attend the weekly prayer sessions but last month, he held a group moment prayer after he announced the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court.

As an outside group, the Capitol Ministry sessions, which are closed, must be sponsored by someone in the government in order to hold meetings in a Congressional building. In the White House, they are currently sponsored by no less than eight politicians: Vice President Mike Pence; Secretaries Betsy DeVos, Ben Carson, Sonny Perdue, Rick Perry, Tom Price and Jeff Sessions; EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Former US Rep. Michelle Bachmann (Rep-Minnesota) serves on the board.

The ‘Constitution Of The Holy Apostles’ Was Not Written By The Apostles And Is Catholic Not Christian • Now The End Begins

The Constitution Of The Holy Apostles is an interesting read, but it is not Scripture and is not able to speak to or interpret Scripture. The Bible says that the “private interpretations” so loved by the Catholic Church are unBiblical, and that only the Bible can interpret the Bible.
constitution-of-the-holy-apostles-catholic-church-false-doctrine-post-trib-rapture

Just remember that the 1,200 time period of the rule and reign of the Catholic Church used to be taught in schools as the Dark Ages. Think about that.

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:19-21 (KJV)

Here at NTEB, we receive emails from all over the globe on a daily basis, and we love to hear from our loyal readers. Oftentimes, however, people who hate the Bible doctrine of the Pretribulation Rapture send us various links and articles in an attempt to prove the pretrib will not take place. One of the things that those people will point to is a spurious writing that dates back to the time in the late 300’s just after the founding of Rome’s Catholic “church” in 325. This writing, known as the Constitution Of The Holy Apostles, is what they use to show a post tribulation rapture of the Church.

A pro-Catholic defense site has this to say about it: “It purports to be the work of the Apostles, whose instructions, whether given by them as individuals or as a body, are supposed to be gathered and handed down by the pretended compiler, St. Clement of Rome, the authority of whose name gave fictitious weight to more than one such piece of early Christian literature. The Church seems never to have regarded this work as of undoubted Apostolic authority. The Trullan Council in 692 rejected the work on account of the interpolations of heretics. Only that portion of it to which has been given the name “Apostolic Canons” was received; but even the fifty of these canons which had then been accepted by the Western Church were not regarded as of certain Apostolic origin.” source

bible-believers-guide-pretribulation-rapture-church-jesus-christ-rightly-dividing-end-times-prophecy-nteb

Yet even though it was mostly rejected as authentic by the early Catholic Church, in our day it is promoted by the Vatican as well as Laodicean “christians” bent on trying to destroy your faith in what the apostle Paul called our “Blessed Hope”, the doctrine that Jesus will return to remove His Church in the days before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble.

The Catholic Church has always taught a Post Tribulation theology:

So the next time you meet someone who tries to talk you out of your faith in the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, and goes to Catholic writings to prove their point, just remind them that the Vatican is the Whore of Babylon mentioned in Revelation 17 and 18, and will be destroyed during the Tribulation.

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13 (KJV)

You cannot debate Bible doctrine with non or unbiblical material. The Constitution Of The Holy Apostles is an interesting read, but it is not Scripture and is not able to speak to or interpret Scripture. The Bible says that the “private interpretations” so loved by the Catholic Church are unbiblical, and that only the Bible can interpret the Bible.

Just remember that the 1,200 time period of the rule and reign of the Catholic Church used to be taught in schools as the Dark Ages. Think about that.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)

Al Gore’s New Climate Change Group ETC Now Demanding $15 TRILLION To Save The Planet From Doom • Now The End Begins

ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt get a piece of the trillions of dollars they are calling for.
al-gore-climate-change-global-warming-etc-energy-transitions-commission-hoax-scam

A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Good news! For only $15,000,000,000,000.00 Al Gore and his Liberal friends can save the planet from ultimate destruction.

The Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) report claims “additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do not pose a major macroeconomic challenge,” which they say will help the world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement.

ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt get a piece of the trillions of dollars they are calling for.

ETC’s goal is to “accelerate change towards low-carbon energy systems that enable robust economic development” and limit global warming. ETC’s report comes out as the Trump administration considers whether or not to stay party to the Paris agreement, which went into effect in 2016.

Al Gore on New Film, Trump, Climate Change & His Opposition to DAPL

Trump has ordered Obama-era policies meant to comply with the Paris agreement be rolled back, but the White House is mulling whether or not to pull out of the agreement altogether. European countries and energy companies have been pressuring the White House to stay party to Paris.

Royal Dutch Shell, for example, aided the pro-Paris faction of the Trump administration by publicly supporting continued U.S. participation in the United Nations deal. Shell is a major producer of natural gas, which the company bills as a way to fight global warming.

Shell funds ETC, and the group’s report mainly targets emissions from coal use. ETC calls for “a rapid decrease in unabated coal consumption, a peak of oil in the 2020s and a continued role for gas provided methane leakages are reduced significantly.”

Climate Change HOAX exposed:

The man in this video is not a Bible believer, but pay close attention to what he has to say about carbon dioxide, something that Al Gore and friends say is a “deadly poison”.

ETC says global carbon dioxide emissions need to be cut from 36 gigatons to 20 gigatons by 2040, and the world needs “net zero” emissions after 2050 to keep global temperatures from hitting 2 degrees Celsius by 2100.

To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.”

That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future global warming.

ETC says fossil fuel investment would need to be cut $3.7 trillion over this time, and that’s on top of fundamentally altering their economic systems to make green energy cost-competitive with fossil fuels in some parts of the world by 2035.

The group says an “explicit, predictably rising, forward price curve for carbon, resulting from policy, reaching approximately $50 per tonne in the 2020s and rising to around $100 per tonne in the 2030s – is essential to drive decarbonization beyond power, to reinforce regulatory-driven improvements in energy productivity and to prevent falling fossil fuels prices from undermining the pace of the energy transition.” source

RUMOURS OF WAR: President Trump Summons The Entire Senate For Meeting On War With North Korea • Now The End Begins

The meeting, which is scheduled for Wednesday, would gather all 100 senators for a briefing hosted by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday, according to USA Today.
president-trump-summons-entire-senate-north-korea-nuclear-war

President Donald Trump has called for a rare White House meeting with the entire Senate to discuss the political crisis on the Korean Peninsula. With tensions between the U.S. and North Korea mounting, the gathering may have massive consequences for the region.

“But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.” Luke 21:8 (KJV)

The meeting, which is scheduled for Wednesday, would gather all 100 senators for a briefing hosted by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday, according to USA Today. The announcement came as the Navy’s Seventh Fleet said two destroyers of its Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group conducted simultaneous, bilateral exercises with U.S. regional allies South Korea and Japan in a display of military might on North Korea’s doorstep.

North Korea hosted its own exhibition of military force Tuesday, according to South Korea’s official Yonhap News Agency. On the anniversary of the founding of the Korean People’s Army, North Korea’s armed forces conducted large-scale artillery drills near the eastern port city of Wonsan. Pyongyang’s military exercises came amid speculation that the reclusive, authoritarian state may have used the occasion to conduct a sixth nuclear test, an event that was previously anticipated during a ceremony earlier this month marking the 105th birthday of the nation’s founder and current leader Kim Jong Un’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung. North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons and its pursuit of long-range missile technology has drawn deep criticism from much of the international community, and Trump responded by dispatching a group of warships, including the Nimitz-class supercarrier Carl Vinson, raising fears that the U.S. may take military action.

Entire U.S. Senate summons to White House for North Korea Briefing:

These parallel military escalations are likely to be a topic of discussion at Wednesday’s meeting at the White House, an unusual venue to gather the entire Senate and some of Trump’s most senior officials. Many lawmakers have pressed the White House for a clear direction in foreign policy and some, such as Ben Cardin, the most senior Democratic politician on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, hope this will be an opportunity to hear a diplomatic solution to the recent political crisis in Asia.

“It’s (the location) their choice,” Cardin told Reuters. “I hope that we hear their policy as to what their objectives are, and how we can accomplish that hopefully without dropping bombs.”

North Korea carries out artillery tests as tension with U.S. heightens:

In recent weeks, both Tillerson and Vice President Mike Pence have made clear to the U.S.’s allies in the Western Pacific that Washington was considering “all options,” including military action, against North Korea to prevent it from conducting additional nuclear tests. These threats were underscored by Trump’s decision to bombard a Syrian airbase with Tomahawk cruise missiles less than 72 hours after blaming Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for an alleged chemical weapons attack on civilians in the northwestern rebel-held province of Idlib. Russia, which backs Assad politically and militarily in his six-year conflict with various insurgents and the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), denied the Syrian military’s responsibility for the suspected sarin gas attack and accused Trump of acting hastily and irresponsibly by pursuing military action before a thorough, independent investigation was conducted.

What a war with North Korea would look like:

One day after the April 7 U.S. Navy strike on Syria, Trump declared he was dispatching a naval “armada” toward the Korean Peninsula amid reports that North Korea was poising for a new nuclear weapons test. Neither the nuclear test nor the U.S. warships arrived, however, and Pyongyang ultimately conducted a ballistic missile test, which failed shortly after launch. The attempted launch drew U.N. Security Council condemnation, although the international body’s statement was delayed by a squabble between the U.S. and Russia, still bitter over the earlier disagreement in Syria. Following the Security Council’s move, U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said the U.S. may “start looking at sanctions or other actions,” according to The Guardian.

Trump’s strikes on Syria were unannounced, meaning the Republican leader may already be pursuing a unique position on North Korea. Pyongyang’s traditional ally, China, has also expressed deep frustration with its neighbor’s rogue nuclear weapons program and has pleaded for calm in the region. Both Russia and China have denied sending additional troops and armaments to their respective borders with North Korea, but have closely followed the Trump administration’s moves in response to growing uncertainty on the Korean Peninsula. Discussions held and decisions made in Wednesday’s meeting would likely affect both nations, which have their own interests in the region. source

Was Tamar a sinner or a saint? – Israel Study Center

Was Tamar a sinner or a saint?

In Hebrew Bible by Dr. Eli Lizorkin-EyzenbergApril 24, 2017

Judah being one of Jacob’s children, participates in a conspiracy to get rid of his half-brother Joseph by selling him to Egypt. Given the 20 year life expectancy of Egyptian slaves, being sold to Egypt was not salvation from death, it was death postponed by much suffering. When Judah matures and himself becomes a father of three sons, two of whom die after marrying Tamar, he learns what it means to love someone too much. Despite the law of levirate marriage that obligates Judah to have his third son marry Tamar, year after year he refuses. His love for his son trumps his sense of justice towards Tamar.

This happens until Tamar orchestrates one of the greatest redemptive breakthroughs in the history of the world by getting Judah himself to restore his dead son’s seed. Tamar disgraces herself, pretending to be a local prostitute. Her truly unconventional, but incredibly courageous plan works. When she becomes pregnant and the truth about his relationship to the child is proven, Judah repents and declares Tamar not guilty of any wrong doing, owning his guilt instead (Gen.38:1-27).

The book of Ruth celebrates Perez – the child of Tamar and Judah, as a crucial part of God’s redemptive plan and establishes him as ancestor of King David (Ruth 4:11-17). What is even more important is that the Gospels include Perez among the forefathers of Jesus, the Messiah and the Book of Revelation refers to Jesus as the Lion from the tribe of Judah!
