Jerusalem Is Not For Everyone

Celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly headed back to Israel.

They plan to have their second child baptized at an Armenian church in Occupied Palestinian Territory that Palestinian Christians are barred from entering. The journey comes amid a wave of upcoming visits by Hollywood celebrities to Israel, thanks to a state-sponsored trip offered to some Oscar nominees.

Suzee Skwiot, writing on Dec. 19 for InTouch Weekly, called the rumored trip by Kardashian and West a budding “family tradition,” as the famous foursome prepare to return to the Cathedral of St. James in Jerusalem.

You can read the rest @

The New Testament describes who can and cannot enter the New Jerusalem:

*The following can enter:

6 I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
Revelation 21 KJV

*The following cannot enter:

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
Revelation 21 KJV

Israel's vision for Jerusalem is not at all what Christians believe. The gates of the city are SHUT, and entry is controlled by those who say they are Jews but are not. Can ANYONE truly believe that Hollywood represents what G-d intends for His people? The very idea of "celebrity" should be anathema to Christians.

Why then is this baptism being portrayed as a "Christian" tradition? It is more of an homage to Judaism ... specifically a Judaism which on one hand rejects Jesus Christ while on the other hand cynically controls which Christians it allows to enter the city.
