Panic or Passover?
While I was in Israel I noticed that people around the world were pushing the proverbial panic button—again—claiming that Israel is in trouble. This provided plenty of fuel for the planetary-pattern prophets, who are betting that as we are in the midst of “four blood moons,” with a cameo of a rare solar eclipse, this could be when everything lines up with what they have been promoting for the last year or more.
As I watched, read, and listened to preachers and teachers who, with fevered pitch, proclaimed their prophecies to a public looking for a purpose to panic, I came across a recent article published in Israel that got my attention and caused me to make a proclamation; just in time for Passover!
An extremely rare bronze mask of the ancient Greek deity Pan has been unearthed in an excavation at the Sussita archaeological site on the Golan Heights.
The mask, which dates back to the Hellenistic period, is larger than a human head and is made of bronze. It is extremely rare, because most ancient bronze statues and masks were melted down in later periods. . . .
Pan was worshipped not only in the city’s temples, but also on pasture-land and in nature, said [Dr. Michael] Eisenberg [of the University of Haifa]. One of the best-known cultic spaces dedicated to Pan is in a cave in the ancient city of Panias, north of Sussita.
“Rituals to worship the gods of pasture and the fields, particularly Dionysus, were held fairly often outside the city,” Eisenberg explained. “They included ceremonies that involved drinking, sacrifice, and ecstatic worship . . . .”
After reading this article, I decided to change our BFA International tour itinerary and travel to the city of Panias in the Golan Heights, where panic was practiced, to make my own proclamation!
