An 18-month-old boy has survived after falling seven floors from a Paris apartment and bouncing off a cafe awning and into the arms of a passerby. "My son saw a little boy on a balcony. He had gone right outside the railing... I said to myself I mustn't miss him," local doctor Philippe Bensignor, told AFP.
"I had time to move from side to side to get in the right position," the doctor said. "The little boy was fine. He cried a little bit but calmed down straight away."
The incident took place at the intersection of Cours de Vincennes and Rue des Pyrenees, in Paris's 20th arrondissement, on Monday.
It was a public holiday in France, and the awning ought to have been retracted.
"We were closed but the mechanical device for closing the awning wasn't working," said a barman at the cafe. "It's a real miracle."
An official investigating the incident said the boy and his three-year-old sister had been left alone in the apartment, in northern Paris, by their parents.
The pair, who had reportedly gone for a walk, were taken into custody.

Vatican Synod says NO to Israel!

Archbishop Cyrille Salim Bustros

   So some Bishops recently held a meeting at the Vatican on the Middle East and and they concluded that the Bible does not support the return of the Jewish people to Israel nor that the Jews are God's chosen people. It is reported that Archbishop Cyrille Salim Bustros stated that the original promises to the Jews by God were nulilfied by Christ, who the Archbishop perhaps does not know is also the Messiah to the Jewish people. So Yeshua, who is fully God, reversed the promises of God violating the scripture that God does not lie, that in Him there is no shifting shadow and that he does not repent or reject His word.

   Would someone tell them to read the Bible and stop preaching a different Gospel, a different Jesus (Yeshua) and a different Spirit. Even the UN got with some of the program in 1948 concerning Israel.  And how about the verse from Romans 11 that God has not rejected the Jews and that the gifts and callings of God are irrevocable. Maybe the Bishops didn't trust those verses because a Jew wrote them.

  Archbishop Bustros is also quoted as saying, " We Christians cannot speak about the promised land for the Jewish people. There is no longer a chosen people.,, The justification of Israel's occupation of the land of Palestine cannot be based on sacred scriptures." What is the Archbishop calling sacred scriptures? Not the word of God that is accepted by Christians and Messianic Jews. It's a different Gospel and it needs to be exposed and treated as such. We call on all Christians to publicly reject these statements and to petition the Vatican to publicly separate itself from these anti-Semitic and unbiblical statements that represent the heart of replacement theology.
