    Shalom Bill! My husband and I are so thankful for the insight into the Word of God that you share. Since you mentioned the “Jews” in France, just wanted to share the following: During the 16th and 17th century, there was a group of people in France called the Huguenots. Seems like they had “teshuvahed” as the Spirit is leading us to do!

    Apparently the Huguenots were a group who did not embrace the doctrine of the mother church of France, but rather they KEPT THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD and HELD TO THE TESTIMONY OF YESHUA. As a result of breaking away from the mother church, they were persecuted and massacred by the tens of thousands. I have discovered my ancestors among this group (not that the physical blood line saves me…it is just an interesting bit of history that I have come across.)

    From Wikipedia (“Huguenots”, accessed 14 January 2014), the Huguenots “…saw Christian life as something to be expressed as a life of simple faith in God, relying upon God for salvation, and not upon the Church’s sacraments or rituals, while obeying Biblical law. Above all, Huguenots became known for their harsh criticisms of doctrine and worship in the Catholic Church from which they had broken away. In particular they criticised the sacramental rituals of the Church and what they viewed as an obsession with death and the dead. They believed that the ritual, images, saints, pilgrimages, prayers, and hierarchy of the Catholic Church did not help anyone toward redemption.”

      Thanks for sharing Andy; I knew some of that but you provided a few more very interesting details. Just goes to show you that there is nothing new under the sun. Shalom.

    Shalom Bill. Looking in a different direction,we (those of us old enough to remember history) Algeria was a French colony. The war between the French and the Algerian independent movement from 1954 to 1962 led to Algeria gaining it’s independence from France. This war was between the loyal Algerians believing in a French Algeria and and their insurrectionist Algerian Muslim counterparts. Effectively started by members of the National Liberation Front (FLN) on November 1, 1954, during the Toussaint Rouge (“Red All Saints’ Day”),BS (before Sue) the conflict shook the foundations of the French Fourth Republic (1946–58) and led to its eventual collapse. Eventually President De Gaulle capitulated in 1961. The FLN
    is Muslim! Subsequently there was many attempts on De Gaulle’s life. Later guess who gave shelter to the Ayatollah? France! I love France, been there several times, but-t-t-t-t
    There were many Algerians that fled to France, who is “Sue’s opinion” children’s, children are involved in what was the former FLN and voila France has more Muslims than Hebrews now. Just a thought.
