September 2006 Comments
2006-09-01

Mr. Hook:

1) I did not "allow" you to intrude upon my private
email account, as you simply sent this email without
my invitation. However, that seems to be the norm
these days, and I do forgive these intrusions, mostly.

2) I am a Messianic Jewish cohanim (priest), and I am
more aware than the vast majority of "religious"
leaders and ministers as to the events and meanings
that are unfolding and will unfold in the world. The
vast masses are decieved, and that is true for the
majority of "Christians". Who, by the way, follow an
Apostate religion not found in scripture. They
constatly violate Y'HWH's and Y'shua's commandments
via their "traditions" and false doctrines. Search the
scriptures', and you will NEVER find any other TRUE
religion listed, but the faith of Moshe (Moses),
Joshua, D'vid, Y'shua (Jesus, which by the way is an
improper translation and has a Greek meaning "of
Zeus"! ), and ALL the apostles. You will not find ANY
Baptists, Methodists, Catholics, Mormons, or any other
denomination in scripture. There is ONLY ONE faith and
true way to obey and worship Y'HWH and Y'shua.

3) My revelations into prophecy and "proper" scripture
interpetation and "obedience" come directly thru
divine revaltion after much prayer and supplication to
Y'HWH thru our messiah Y'shua. These revelations are
often via the Ruach Hakodesh (holy spirit), but there
are others avenues. The true spirit of prophecy and
discernment comes via the Ruach HaKodesh.

4) As for being a "Vietnam Veteran", well, I do not see
how that ads anything to your position. I much prefer
the veteran's of the ongoing "war" between Y'HWH's
holy people and the Adversay in the world. These are
the true vets of an epic struggle that leads to life
or eternal condemnation.

REPENT! (T'shuvah, which means to turn from the
world's ways and follow Y'HWH's ways, laws,
commandements, precepts. THE LIVING TORAH as revealed
via Y'shua. 1:John 3:4) Prepare! The Kingdom of Y'HWH
is very near!

Hi. I am not sure that I am clear as to how you got my e-mail and I do have an open mind about our existence. I do believe in peace, but how we all achieve it is another qestion indeed.

By trade and philosophy, I am a handy man bettering peoples surroundings and by my life's ath, I am an Astrologist and the stars are telling us if we dont change some fundamental social structures, we will be in for one hell of a big surprise on both side si of the pond. talk to you soon.
--------------------------------------------------


As I surf through endless information that is the Internet one comes across a unique and profound site. I believe your web site and your information is one of them.
--------------------------------------------------

I BELIEVE IN GOD WITH ALL MY HEART. I ALSO AT ONE TIME WAS VERY WELL VERESED IN THE BIBLE. NOW I CANT QUOTE CHAPTER AND VERSE, BUT IF I STUDYED A WHILE I COULD. I ALSO KNOW THAT GOD SAID TO LEAVE TO CESARS WHATS HIS AND GIVE TO GOD WHAT IS HIS AND DONT MIX THE BOTH OF THEM. I FEAR THAT IS HAPPENING A LOT HERE LATELY. I ALSO SEE AND HEAR WHERE DIFFERENT CHURCHS TEND TO TRY TO RUN POLITICS FROM THE CHURCH AND I DONT CARE FOR THAT. I AM NEITHER A LIBERAL OR A RIGID RIGHT WINGER. I AM A MODERATE AND I PRAY TO GOD AND AS HE HAS SAID IN THE BIBLE THERE IS NO ONE BETWEEN HIM AND ME. I ALSO BELIEVE WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT ANYWHERE WHERE MORE THAN TWO PEOPLE GATHER IN MY NAME IS A CHURCH.
I TEND TO THINK FROM READING WHAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN TO ME THAT YOU WANT TO MIX THESE THINGS AND I DONT CARE FOR THAT. I SPENT 21 YEARS IN THE NAVY AND 34 MONTHS OF THAT TIME IN NAM. I GOT LOTS OF MEDALS AND AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE I AM FOR SOME REASON AM GETTING PROUD OF THEM MAINLY CAUSE MY WIFE BELIEVES IN ME AND OTHER VETS I HAVE TALKED TO FEEL T HE SAME WAY NOW. WE ARE MORE WORRYED ABOUT THE NEW YOUNG VETS THAT IN TIME THE VA AND OTHER CHURCH ORGANIZATIONS WILL TURN THIER BACK ON. WE FEEL FOR THOSE PEOPLE AND WANT TO BE TH ERE FOR THEM WHEN EVERYONE ELSE WALKS AWAY.
SO I GUESS I AM TELLING YOU ALL THIS TO LET YOU KNOW I MAY NOT BE THE TYPE OF PERSON THAT CAN BE TALKED INTO THINGS BY SAYING I AM GOING TO HELL IF I DONT VOTE REPUBLICAN OR PREACH HATE TO OTHER SUPPOSED CHRISTAINS. THAT TYPE OF STUFF SHOULD BE LEFT IN GODS HANDS NOT OURS. WE NEED TO GET ON OUR KNEES AND PRAY TO GOD EVERYDAY FOR OUR YOUNG MEN AND WOMAN THAT THEY COME BACK WHOLE.
I KNOW OTHERS ARE BEING SWEEP UP IN THIS SUPPOSED TIME OF COMING TO GOD, WHAT THEY DONT SEE IS THAT MONEY AND SUCCESS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR SOULS. IT ALSO SAYS GIVE YOUR RICHS AWAY AND FOLLOW ME. I AM WILLING TO BET MOST WONT EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING THAT.
SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR INVITE, BUT I AM ONLY INTERSTED IN WHAT THE REAL GOD SAYS AND NOT WHAT MEN HAS MADE UP TO BE CALLED A CHRISTAIN.
--------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Hook,

Thank you for writing me. I have taken time and read a great deal of what you have say in your website. Let me say that I agree with much of what you have written and have taken time to research and reference some other things. In my readings I have found you to be right on target. Regarding Israel, I agree 100% with you. It is a great folly our country has undertaken in removing the Jewish people from Gaza. It is theirs, plain and simple. We had no right to intervene in any manner. To my regret this folly is at the expense of human beings and we as a nation should shudder in fear for doing it to God's chosen people. Mr. Bush speaks of a road map to peace in the middle East. He needs to read the Bible for there shall be no peace there until Jesus brings it with Him. I find it ironic that this administration is saying they want peace but yet the United States does not have an embassy in Israel. We have one everywhere else in the world practically....especially among those we call "allies".....anyway, the Arabs will continue to be the "wild ass" as told to Hagar centuries ago. I believe God is sending wake-up calls and Katrina was one of them to us. He has been silent but the day is coming when He shall speak. The battle between good and evil has escalated and I believe we are rushing to the last war of wars.

Matthew 10:34 is a favorite of mine. Jesus says he is the sword that shall cut us off from friends and relatives for He does not bring peace. He brought salvation and it is up to us to accept or deny Him. I shall admit I have been a great sinner and still fall very short each day. I do believe in Jesus and that He died for my sins and for my salvation. I must thank you for the thought provoking and inspired works you have written. They have helped me take a true inventory of my beliefs and check if they are in line with what my Savior commands. I agree with you that many pastors out there that are teaching the feel good philosophy are way off the mark. Yes, the Lord wants us to have good lives and wants to bless us but to be a true Chrisitian means to pick up our own cross daily and follow Him. That is no easy task. To say no to the flesh is an epic struggle which seems to grow stronger each day as we are bombarded with so much trash via the television and other forms of mass media. My wife and I had our satellite TV service disconnected but there is still plenty of trash to sift through on network outlets.

I read your testimony regarding your Jewish friend and I admire and respect you for staying true to the course. In my small Kentucky town (under 6,000 in the county including 2 prison populations) I see a Jewish nurse-practicioner and understand backlash....nothing like what you encountered but it still comes from the same ugly source of ole slewfoot.

Mr. Hook, I was once a soldier too. Let me say that I admire your courage to serve our Ultimate Commander, King of Kings, Jesus the True Christ! His is the only army in which I shall serve. Continue to keep writing as God leads you. You have an annointed ministry. I shall continue to pray for you. May I ask you and your prayer partners to pray for one of my intentions? I believe the Lord is calling me to ministry and I believe it is in music. I am working with some greatly annointed talent but to the world they are rejects, unknowns and outside the mainstream either by the color of their skin or because they made a mistake and cannot receive forgiveness much less favor among "Christians." I have no anomosity towards those who have closed doors in my face or spoken about me behind my back. Job demonstrated we must accept the bad along with the good. Please pray that the Lord will grant me favor to help the ones He wants to minister for Him through song. Tough times are coming but I believe we must keep a song to the Lord Jesus in our hearts. I know His music is what has helped sustain me too many time to count. I'm not talking about throwing a show or entertaining people but bringing the Word through God's annointed ones to minister to hard hearts and stiff necks. My prayer is one song may save one soul. Thank you for your consideration and thank you for writing me. Again, I know I have taken a great deal of time in responding but I believe I owed it to you and me and most importantly, our Lord....Jesus Christ.

Yours
Because of Him,
Frank

From: Jack D. Hook
To: Frank

Greetings Frank. I must tell you that the timing of your encouraging email is directed by our Lord Jesus Christ. For in the last few days, two long-time friends of mine, who profess faith in our Lord, have departed from the wholesome teachings of our Lord, and have joined with the false television teachers who are stirring up the carnal minds of Christians by encouraging them to engage in the wars of America/Babylon. Iran and the possibility of more carnage are on the horizon and my friends are being seduced.

My heart has been grieving and in despair, and I have pleaded and begged these friends of thirty years to return to the bloody cross of our Lord for forgiveness and power to stand up to this rush in Christendom towards World War Three in the Middle East. Your letter was from our Lord to me, to help me not be overcome with self-pity, which is just as carnal as the pride coming from the patriotic militancy of my friends.

Thank you, Frank, for obeying our Lord Jesus Christ in all of this. Soon we shall be with him face to face as we are now Spirit to spirit. You have my prayers for your music ministry which is the desire the Spirit has placed in your heart. He will bring all his will to pass in your life and ministry, so be patient. Your eternal brother. Jack

From: Frank
To: Jack D. Hook

Jack,

It is an honor to be the Lord's instrument. I thank Him for using me. Know that I will pray for your friends as well as you that all carnal ways will be nailed to the blood soaked cross of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your prayers for me and reminding me to be patient. All in God's own time!

Jesus Christ Is Lord!

Again, keep writing my brother!

God bless you always,
Frank

Hi Jack,

I had written to you quite awhile back from an old email address and I have been checking periodically to see if you post anything new. Anyway, have just read your latest article about what you believe the scenario will be to bring about the antichrist, who will be the American president in your estimation.

I am going to send you a link, that it seems in my mind, that really explains exactly why we are in the middle east, and the attack on Iran has to be happening very soon. Do you think this will bring about the war in the middle east, with Russia attacking Israel? Don't you think that Russia will also attack us in the U.S.? I can see how the apostate church in the U.S. would whole heartedly support a world war to preserve their lifestyle, all in the name of Jesus, as is the war in process in Iraq. It seems this all may begin very soon.

It sure seems like the end of the American empire is soon, but I know you believe that America will be the lone superpower until Revelation 18, when Babylon is destroyed Bottom line is to love the Lord thy God with all thy soul and with all thy mind and pray to not be deceived. We surely do live in perilous times.

Thanks, Randy
-------------------------------------------------


Hi, Mr.Hook,
To be honest, I was a bit worried,seeing your e-mail and hesitant to open it.
Viruses,hackers and all. I do have an open mind and will follow up on your literature during the next few days. A quick glance makes me think we may have ideas in common.
Thanks for the invitation, Rolf
-------------------------------------------------


Brother Jack:

How did you get my email? Not a problem, but just curious. Your web site is way too cool. I feel we are living in the end times. As a born again, simply saved by God's grace, I love the Lord. I love to share my faith and plant seeds. My favorite line is, "Are you a local?" "How about directions?" I then ask them, "Well from here how do you get to Heaven from here?" I then hand them my card with directions to heaven on the back. Showing how we have all broken the Ten Commandments etc and then the Roman Road Way of Salvation.
Thanks again brother. I am a retired Army Major myself. I miss it.
Out here from a brother in Christ,
Mike

Hi Jack,

I listened to your interview regarding "Israel Gaza USA" and found it to be very interesting. I believe that it is very important for Christians to keep their eyes on Israel and what is happening in that territory. It is at the center of biblical prophecies regarding the "last days". You seem to have a good understanding of the basics regarding Jesus and God's ongoing work of redemption for His rebellious creatures. I just recently added a new page to our church's website on the question of "why should Jesus be recognized as humanity's only savior". You can find it at http://creekwoodbc.org/why_Jesus.php It will give you some insight into my thinking and evangelistic writing style on the Internet. I would be glad to receive any of your suggestions for its improvement.

Thank you for the brief statement of your personal background and objective of your ministry. I would encourage you to sharpen the focus of your basic website so that its purpose and benefits are easily seen by your viewers. If they can't quickly tell what your site is all about, they probably won't spend much time on it to check out your various messages and resources. You have a good testimony and a sincere message of good news (the gospel) to deliver. Your website can be a good "pulpit" for you if you sharpen your appeal to your particular audience, veterans.

Your fellow messenger,
Bob

Jack....I served in the ARMY during WWII Have experience an ongoing Lutheran life since I was confirmed in 1933....Have learned that all things are in the hand of GOD and anything we say or do will not change one iota the happenings that are going on in the world today....GOD has a reason for hurricanes, drought, famine, wars and anything you can name I have tried to change things in my feeble way....but find that I am here to serve my fellow man in any way that I can and that is exactly what I am doing....Thank You for your opinions etc.....Sincerely in CHRIST /Truman
-------------------------------------------------


Good Morning Jack,

I can't thank you enough for explaining how and why I feel so guilty and "less than" a christian. When you explained that our Spirit is born again, but that we need to daily be "dying to sin" and even though at times the "flesh rises up" and feels seduced, I can "crucify" the fleshly desires daily - I think I understand now!

I was feeling guilty when, for instance a "seductive type" song would come on, and I really enjoyed the music, I was feeling "surely a real christian, would not be drawn to enjoy this song" - but in reality, it is the flesh that is drawn, and I now have the power to Choose and say "no". I can see now where I was being decieved and was still in bondage to "guilt and shame" when I really didn't need to be - I just did not understand the power struggle involved between flesh and spirit.

It is AMAZING how after 20years of being a Born Again, Spirit fillied Christian, seeing miracles of God and walking with Him, I could still feel so guilty and "less than" - I wish more churches really taught on this topic.

Question - I know exactly where we are in 2006, this is the year that Christians need to become STRONG and uncompromising, this is the year. The put in my Spirit that by the end of 2006 and definitely going into 2007 we are going to see major changes and times are going to become really tough.
My question is - Do you really think the rapture is going to occur and when - pre,mid or post trib??
I always hoped it would be "pre", but I am really beginning to question that.

Again, Many thanks and God Bless you - Allison
I pray that God will give you divine insight and wisdom so that you can continue to be a light to the paths of those who are seeking Truth in these last days.
-------------------------------------------------


I enjoyed your letter and it pleases me to know that there are people like you that respond to the unusual....really, called by our Lord to renender thoses services. It is wonderful to know that you love our Lord that much. I am going to your website. I have been a Christian for many years, but unsatisfied with most answers...reared as a Methodist, joined the Baptist...but cannot buy once saved always saved...so, I felt like I was called...for whatever reason...to be a bit different...so after much, much study....I realized that I had found the total truth in the Seventh Day Adventist Church....It took about 5 years of seminars and such...and alot of anger from the Baptist church....but I knew that I had found where I should be. My son went first, then myself.....my husband a year later...and then my daughter. It has been a blessing in many ways...but once you find it...you cannot step back in time.
-------------------------------------------------

hey bro thanks 4 replying to my e mail
so how long have u been in Gods kingdom ?
i 2 thank my gracious Lord Jesus for opening my eyes to the truth
His word is so exact and yes our hearts are so hell bent for destruction that i have seen so much of His word twisted and distorted for personal gain even having been run over by it and abused by my brothers and sisters who have become blinded i forgive them Lord forgive them
only 1 master shall i serve and money isnt my GOD
so many peoples have bought into the "false prosperity doctrine" not truly being content as to have only the The Lord and Him only
in my life i have nothing i own nothing i live in a cave so to speak it was very hard and took so many years of hardship and heart ache to understand what it means to truly gain that part in which will never be taken away
one must be willing to truly trust GOD only and let HIM tear down the house and let HIM build it HIS way.
slowly with wisdom He builds because of the time spent in true desire of Him and long hours of study and worship/praise i can say that im not even close but i have gained HIM IN FULLNESS as it says in HIS word
col 2:9,10
i have so many awesome spiritual experiences that have left me with a more solid faith that i am of this heart
"Take it all away LORD please"!
peace out brother
-------------------------------------------------


anything regarding this world is boring to me no offence to you but all the theories you mentioned all come under the rule of the illuminati or high ranking masons of which we are all subject to their control but of course this is all part of the test of which our existence is all about they seemingly have control but the end will be justifiable though it seems impossible again this is why our exsitance is a test to see how we all react within a very clever fascist regime of which the west is all under. so pricks will burn and the rest will turn thats all i have to say about anything within this domain bye and peace brother
-------------------------------------------------


Hi Jack,
I really appreciate the trouble you took to answer me. I too am a Christian....that may be the reason I did not just delete your message and your website.
I started studying war when I was 16 years old...reading Alan Bullock's "Hitler a Study in Tyranny"...I could simply not believe what I was reading and started reading everything I could about the second and first world wars...Prior to that I had read about many wars in various books...but had not seen the horrors of it until that book on Hitler...This then got me going...I have read an enormous number of books for the past 50 years...and have also studied the wars in Scripture...particularly those that are detailed in the books of Kings and Chronicles...
You are right of course....the problem we all have is the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life...when we walk in the Spirit we will certainly not fulfil any of those three specified lusts.
I now have a view that goes as follows...there really is no justification for any wars of any sort for any reason at all. I understand that there is evil in this world...and that it is very likely that nothing will change until Jesus comes again...but that does not justify the killing of people whether it is from one side or the other (whichever one wishes to put against each other).
I will visit your website and read some of the material you have there...
Please keep in contact with me...I enjoyed your e mail...and seeing as we are brothers in Christ we most certainly should encourage each other.

I agree with you on everything, but I wonder if indeed Iran is too weak to defend against us. However, it is plausible that they will decide to hold off for a peace treaty, planning to strike later. I hear they have formidable weapons, not only some nuclear but the electrical disruptors. And means to deliver them even as far as America. But holding off to get stronger makes sense, I guess.

I would love to have you e-mail my son, who sends me anti-God e-mails. Perhaps he will, with our prayers, actually read your material. He is a "scientist" at ........., a curse which comes from his biological father's Ph.D. brains. Oh Jack, please pray for the only project I ever wanted, the salvation of my son. My husband is already saved. Of course I pray for the salvation of EVERYONE every day. I would never have prayed to conceive a child if I'd known he would not be saved.

Dear Jack:
Thank you for your emails and messages regarding the end times. I don't really worry about these things as they are not doctrine that concern our eternal salvation...only that Christ came to redeem us from our sins (but, only after we have repented) for which He died and then resurrected to be seated at the right hand of the Father, where He has prepared a place for us. That is the only doctrine that true followers of Our Lord and Savior need to concern ourselves with. In the meantime we should preach His word and make the unGodly know that their ways are an abomination and they will pay the price in the end - not everyone will be saved. Yes, all of Israel will be saved - but that is what the New Testament explains as being the Church of God - the true chosen people - only a small remnant of those who say they are Jews and the believing Gentiles - no more and no less! Judaism today is the offshoot of the heretical Pharisees that Christ and the Apostles so adamantly scorned and warned the followers of. Judaism was not the religion of Abraham, Moses, David, etc...Judaism was borne of the legalists while in exile in Babylon (land of pagans and human mysticism), where the Talmud and Kabbalah were created by the hand of men. The term Judaic-Christianity is an oxymoron - it should more precisely be termed as Mosaic-Christian or Hebraic-Christian. No man could keep the OT Law, it was only to show that we cannot be perfect and God-like and that we are born as undeserving and sinful creatures. Only those through faith, if "ye be Christ's", that are the heirs of Abraham's promise (Galatians) - that many nations would be his descendants- and not only Jews!

The whole idea that God would allow a sinful and unrepenting people, one that proved to be the logical instrument to carry out the crucifixion of His son and numerous prophets, (the fleshly Israel) to build another temple to re-commence the blood sacrifices thus again negating the ultimate sacrifice of the only perfect clean Lamb is totally absurd! As Christ said His kingdom is NOT of this world. The ultimate Kingdom of God is in heaven and is a spiritual dwelling, not of the flesh, we will not have bodies or clothes as we know it.

Remember, no one knows the time or day. It could be this year or next, could be a thousand years or more. The bible warns of those who want to determine the time...it doesn't matter when, whether you're pre, mid or post tribulation or or even amillennialist. If you are not ready for the Lord today - you won't be tomorrow, that is the message for unbelievers.

God bless you my brother,
Phil

Jack,
Call your buddy Pat Robertson and the two of you can form the new "666 Club" the official organization for the religiously deranged.

-------------------------------------------------

Dear Jack,

You don't know jack! It's not Jesus who's coming (he's been dead for thousands of years, if in fact he ever existed), it's Meshiach, ben David who is also prophesized in the very same books of Tanach you refer to.

I know you think the Jews will convert on-mass on the day of revelation, but in fact it will be G-d fearing gentiles like you who will become Ben'Noach realizing then the fictitiousness of your Jesus idol worship and clinging to the shirt-tails of Jews to save them.

Respectfully,
Tom
--------------------------------------------------

I really appreciate your zeal for the righteousness of LORD! Keep it up Jack! Some are hearing! HE is coming!
Blessings, Ron

--------------------------------------------------

I am living in Israel now, not just a spectator anymore. I'll be drafted this December and I know it's heating up so I remember that for me to live is Christ and to die is gain.
--------------------------------------------------


How are you friend? We both know the answer on what will happen in the East. We both know how the Nation of Islam and Israel will bring forth what is due and already written. The great deceiver will bring forth his lies and trick much of the world with the false promise of peace when in fact it will be one total power till the second coming of Jesus.

Liken unto what you say I say " In Whom do you put your trust?"
I put my Trust in God. I have no trust in man. Man is weak and many have weak minds and lust over things, power, fame, money and sex. All of which will be left behind when one either ascends or descends. There is only one correct choice all others lead to damnation.

William
-------------------------------------------------


Greetings to you, Jack.

It is truly amazing to me that so many people -- as you seem to be aware -- are so willing deceived into believing mankind can do any good thing!

Shalom.
Joe
