Jesus fulfills His Office in the Godhead as Our Counsellor

Message 2

Message 1 was put up aa a Blog on June 8

June 24, 2013

Colossians 2:8-10 – Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. [9] For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. [10] And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Isaiah 9:6-7 – For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, COUNSELLOR, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. [7] Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 45:21-24 – Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take COUNSEL together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. [22] Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. [23] I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. [24] Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

COUNSEL – Advice or guidance solicited from God

Isaiah 46:9,10 – Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, [10] Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My COUNSEL shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Zechariah 6:12,13 – And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord: [13] Even he shall build the temple of the Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

Acts 20:25-32 – And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. [26] Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. [27] For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. [28] Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. [29] For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. [30] Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. [31] Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. [32] And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an INHERITANCE among all them which are sanctified.

Ephesians 4:30-32 – And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. [31] Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: [32] And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Colossians3:23,24 – And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; [24] Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Joel 3:9-21 – Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: [10] Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. [11] Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord. [12] Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. [13] Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. [14] Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. [15] The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. [16] The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. [17] So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. [18] And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim. [19] Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. [20] But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. [21] For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the Lord dwelleth in Zion.

Revelation 19:11-21 – And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [14] And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. [16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. [17] And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; [18] That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. [19] And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [21] And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

CIA training Syrian rebels

June 22, 2013

CBS reports: CIA, US Special Forces training rebels in Turkey, Jordan. Meantime, Kerry arrives in Doha for talks, rebels confirm western military aid has begun to flow, in bid to turn tide against Assad

Yitzhak Benhorin

WASHINGTON – The CIA and US army’s Special Forces have been training small groups of Syrian rebels in secret bases in Jordan and Turkey since November 2012, CBS has reported Saturday. According to the report, the training focused on training rebels in the usage of anti-tank and anti-aircraft arms donated by Arab states.

However, as of yet, Syrian President Bashar Assad and his official state forces have enjoyed complete aerial superiority, which some claim has becoming the watershed for swinging the conflict back in his favor.

————Report: US military rejected Kerry’s plan to attack in Syria

Rebels for their part are desperate for serious American aid which would allow them to properly respond to Assad’s aerial dominance and technological upper hand which allow the regime, for example, to gather intelligence on rebel forces with the aid of Iranian drones or fight during the night with the aid of night vision, to name a few.

US Secretary of State John Kerry was in Qatar Saturday to meet officials from nearly a dozen nations to firm up and coordinate military and humanitarian aid going to the Syrian opposition trying to oust President Bashar Assad.

Kerry flew to Doha, the capital of Qatar, Saturday and it is the first stop on his seven-nation trip through the Mideast and Asia. US officials hope the meeting will re-energize a newly expanded Syrian opposition group, which is to elect new leadership in coming days.

Despite the recent string of victories for pro-Assad forces, rebels for their part are also not so quick to give up. A senior official with the Free Syrian Army claimed that his organization had already begun to receive arms promised to them by foreign nations, “from now on you’ll see us victorious,” he promised.

During a meeting with the organization’s commanders in Ankara, Gen. Salim Idris, the Free Syrian Army’s chief commander, claimed they have begun to receive the arms promised to them, but failed to go into detail.

Idris’s claims coincided with recent reports that rebels have begun to receive serious military aid in the form of anti-tank and possibly anti-aircraft missiles from Gulf states, first and foremost Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, fears of an escalation in the Syrian conflict have led the White House to leave about 700 combat-ready troops in Jordan after the military exercise which took place this week in the Hashemite Kingdom.

According to a statement made by United States President Barack Obama, per the Jordanian government’s request, the troops will remain in Jordanian territory until the security situation will allow their departure. According to the White House statement, the remaining force includes Patriot Missile systems, fighter jets among others.

Last week saw the much anticipated announcement by the US that it would take a more proactive stance in the conflict and begin to arm rebels. A decision supposedly taken in wake of confirmed chemical arms usage on Assad’s forces part, finally crossing the US’s much debated ‘red-line’.

The White House’s decision also came on the same day that former US President Bill Clinton published a critical op-ed slamming the Obama administration for not acting to consolidate and support the Syrian opposition, which seemed to be loosing its footing in the wake of losses to Assad loyalists and Hezbollah fighters in Qusair.

In his column in the Washington Post, David Ignatius, considered to be well connected with the current administration, claimed that Obama does indeed want Assad deposed, but not just yet.

According to Ignatius, Obama wishes to strengthen moderate opposition forces under the command of Salim Idris and his Free Syrian Army and only then begin negotiations towards an interim government.

According to Ignatius, this position stems from fears shared by many in the West that a large portion of rebels are hardliner Islamist supportive of al-Qaeda.

The main concern is that western arms would fall into the wrong hands and that Assad’s fall would be a recreation of the situation in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein. In contrast to Iraq, this time, the Americans want a smooth transition that would include continuity in government and social services the day after Assad’s looming fall.

“The Way” of the King of Life is the Truth of His Word – Part 3

Friday, June 21st, 2013

“The Way” of the King of Life is the Truth of His Word!

Part 3

June 22, 2013

Jesus spoke these words in John 17 to the first disciples in Jerusalem on his last trip there to be crucified. The Apostles had traveled with him for more than 3 years and represented his first New Testament Church.

John 17:17 – Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

John 6:62,63 – What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? [63] It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Ephesians 3:21 – Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Ephesians 2:22 – In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Ephesians 1:23 – Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Where can spiritually saved souls feast on the TREE OF LIFE on this earth NOW?

Ephesians 5:26,27 – That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, [27] That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

I Peter 2:4,5 – To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, [5] Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5:30 – For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Revelation 22:12,14 – And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. [14] Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Where will the tree of life (Christ) be located in the Millennium?

In the Millennial Temple Complex of the rebuilt City of Jerusalem.

Ezekiel 40:2-4 – In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south. [3] And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate. [4] And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 43:1-5 – Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east: [2]And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. [3] And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face. [4] And the glory of the Lord came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east. [5] So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house.

Ezekiel 48:30-35 – And these are the goings out of the city on the north side, four thousand and five hundred measures. [31] And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben, one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi. [32] And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan. [33] And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures: and three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one gate of Zebulun. [34] At the west side four thousand and five hundred, with their three gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of Naphtali. [35] It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The Lord is there.

In 1932 I was born physically and spiritually alive toward the world. I was physically and spiritually dead toward God. I was saved in 1944 – At that instant in time I remained physically and spiritually alive toward the world, but I was spiritually set free from the condemnation of God for sin and made eternally alive to God and Heaven through Christ.

Romans 4:6-8 – Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, [7] Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. [8] Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. Galatians 2:20-21 – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. [21]I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. John 5:24 –Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

THE FINAL HEAVENLY CITY – Revelation 21:1,2 – And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. [2] And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Hebrews 12:22,23 – But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, [23] To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

Israel is currently enjoying a temporary period of “Peace and Safety” which will eventually be followed suddenly by Destruction as Islamic Forces drive Israel into the Negev Wilderness!

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

The 3 Major Trees of the Islamic Faith are the Shia, Sufis, and Sunni.

June 20, 2013

Israel is Currently Enjoying A Temporary Period of Peace and Safety, Because the 10 horns of Daniel 7 are now too busy fighting each other
as well more than 73 limbs of the Islamic faith made of Iron & Clay.

I Thessalonians 5:3-6 – For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. [4] But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. [5] Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. [6] Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

Daniel 7:20-22 – And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. *[21] I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

Revelation 12:6 – And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

II Thessalonians 2:3 – Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

II Thessalonians 2:9-12 – Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, [10] And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. [11] And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: [12] That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Daniel 7:21,22 – *I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; [22] Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Revelation 17:12-14,17 – And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. [14] These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. [17] For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Begin Excerpt from Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Israel’s Security Policy in a Changing Middle East – Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon (Washington Institute for Near East Policy)

June 19, 2012

In the Middle East we witness the strengthening of political Islam, the entrance of even more radical jihadi elements into the arena, the heightened Shia-Sunni conflict everywhere, and radical Sunni elements in many countries around us.

At the same time, Israel enjoys today a relatively calm situation security-wise. The border with Lebanon has been quiet since 2006. The border with Syria is, generally speaking, calm. In Gaza we have gone a couple of weeks with not even one provocation on behalf of Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad or any other faction. Sinai: again, a relatively calm situation. Having served in the military, I don’t remember such a calm situation for such a long period of time.

But we have to warn ourselves that what dominates the Middle East is instability. So far, they are engaged among themselves, fighting each other, but it might be, in the end, that the weapons are directed toward us. They are well-armed – militias, elements, whether Hizbullah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad – with rockets and missiles, which are a threat for our security.

In the current situation, the Egyptian and Israeli defense establishments have good cooperation for the benefit of our two countries. Sitting in Cairo and looking around, I believe that the only safe border is the border with us. Neither from Libya nor Sudan; the Gaza Strip is a problem; even across the Red Sea, Yemen is not stabilized; so this [the border with Israel] is their only safe border.

These days, in Sinai, [Egyptian] military forces are deployed to deal with the terror elements. It is against the military annex of the peace accord, but we allowed it. [They made a] special request; we responded positively for a certain period of time. And, of course, we expect the Egyptian defense forces to deal with this phenomenon of terrorists using Sinai as no-man’s-land, because, in the end, the weapons are directed against them.



Someone was kind enough to give me this list of the 73 Islamic Sects:

Jarudiah:. Sulamania: Butriyah: Yaqubiyya: Hanafiyah: Karibiyah: Kamiliyah: Muhammadiyyah: Baqiriyah: Nadisiyah: Sha’iyah: Ammaliyah: Ismailiyah: Musawiyah:. Mubarakiyah Kathiyah: Hashamiya: Zarariyah: Younasiyah: Shaitaniyah/Shireekiyah:. Azraqaih:. Najadat:. Sufriyah: HAjaridah: Khazimiyah: Shuaibiyah/Hujjatiyah: Khalafiyah: a’lumiyah/Majhuliah: Saltiyah: Hamziyah: Tha’libiyah: Ma’badiyah: Akhnasiyah: Shaibaniyah/Mashbiyah: Rashidiyah: Iukarramiyah/tehmiyah: Abadiyah/Afáliyah: Hafsiyah: Harithiya:. Ashab a’áh:Shabibiyah/Salihiyah: Wasiliyah: Ámriyah: Hudhailiyah/Faniya:. Nazzamiyah: Bashriyah: Hishamiyah: Murdariyah: Ja’friyah:. Iskafiyah: Thamamiyah: Jahiziayh:
Shahhamiyah/Sifatiyah: Khaiyatiyah/Makhluqiyah: Ka’biyah: Jubbaiyah Shshamiyah: Ibriyah:Zanadiqiyah: Qabariyya: Hujjatiya: Fikriyya: Aliviyah/Ajariyah: Tanasikhiya: Haajiýah: Ahadiyah: Radeediyah: Satbiriyah: Lafziyah: Ashariyah: Bada’iyah: Ahmadiyya:

However, it doesn’t include ALL Islamic sects.

So which sect of Islam (according to Muslims, the Quran, or Hadith) is the only sect to get to go directly to Heaven? Also, I thought the 73 Sects prediction was just that – a prediction by Muhammad – and since there are indeed well over 73 Islamic sects, I have to conclude the whole 73 thing is wrong anyway.

There are some 66,000 U.S, troops, and some 34,000 from other countries that make up the coalition forces now in Afghanistan. This force of 100,000 will drop to 50,000 by the end of 2013, and the remaining 50,000 are likely to have left by the end of 2014.

US, Taliban to start talks in Qatar office

After more than a decade of war, sides meet to talk on Afghanistan; Taliban open office in Qatar; US hopes group cuts off from al-Qaeda

Associated Press

In a major breakthrough, the Taliban and the US announced Tuesday that they will hold talks on finding a political solution to ending nearly 12 years of war in Afghanistan as the Islamic militant movement opened an office in Qatar.

American officials with the Obama administration said the office in the Qatari capital of Doha was the first step toward the ultimate US-Afghan goal of a full Taliban renouncement of links with al-Qaeda. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record, said U.S. representatives will begin formal meetings with the Taliban at the office in a few days.

The decision was a reversal of months of failed efforts to start peace talks while Taliban militants intensified a campaign targeting urban centers and government installations.

In Doha, Taliban spokesman Mohammad Naim said the group opposes the use of Afghan soil to threaten other countries and supports the negotiating process, two key demands of both the US and Afghan governments before talks could begin. He made the statement shortly after the deputy foreign minister of Qatar said the Emir of the gulf state had given the go ahead for the office to open.

Naim said the Taliban are willing to use all legal means to end what they called the occupation of Afghanistan.

He thanked the leader of Qatar, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani for allowing them to open the office.

The Obama administration officials say the US and Taliban representatives will hold bilateral meetings, and Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s High Peace Council is expected to follow up with its own talks a few days later.

The administration officials acknowledged the process will be “complex, long and messy” because of the ongoing level of distrust between the parties.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record, vowed to continue to push the Taliban further and said that ultimately the Taliban must also break ties with al-Qaeda, end violence and accept Afghanistan’s constitution, including protections for women and minorities.

The US will hold its first formal meetings with the Taliban in Doha within a few days, senior officials said, with the expectation that it will be followed up days later by a meeting between the Taliban and the High Peace Council. The first meeting will focus on an exchange of agendas and consultations on next steps.

Despite Karzai’s stated hopes that the process will move almost immediately to Afghanistan, however, US officials do not expect that to be possible in the near future.

Officials said that Obama was personally involved in working with Karzai to enable the opening of the office, and that US Secretary of State John Kerry had also played a major role. Obama, who was in Northern Ireland for a meeting of the Group of 8 industrial nations, briefed fellow leaders at the summit on opening of the office. Those leaders include the heads of the UK, Russia, Canada, France and Italy, among others.

Karzai also said he will soon send representatives from the High Peace Council to the Gulf state of Qatar to discuss peace with the Taliban.

“We are hopeful that after starting negotiations in Qatar, immediately the negotiations and all the peace process should move into Afghanistan. Afghanistan shouldn’t be center of the discussions outside of the country,” Karzai said.

The Taliban have for years refused to speak to the government or the Peace Council, set up by Karzai three years ago, because they considered them to be American “puppets.” Taliban representatives have instead talked to American and other Western officials in Doha and other places, mostly in Europe.

“We don’t have any immediate preconditions for talks between the Afghan peace council and the Taliban, but we have principles laid down,” Karzai said, adding that they include bringing an end to violence and the movement of talks to Afghanistan so they are not exploited by other countries.

The announcements came on the day that Afghan forces took the lead from the US-led NATO coalition for security nationwide, marking a turning point for American and NATO military forces, which will now move entirely into a supporting role. It also opens the way for the full withdrawal of most foreign troops in 18 months

The top US commander in Afghanistan, Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, said the only way to end the war was through a political solution.

“My perspective has always been that this war is going to have to end with political reconciliation and so I frankly would be supportive of any positive movement in terms of reconciliation particularly an Afghan led and an Afghan owned process that would bring reconciliation between the Afghan people and the Taliban in the context of the Afghan constitution,” he said as reports were breaking that the Taliban were about to open an office.

For US and other foreign combat troops on the ground, the transition means they will not be directly carrying the fight to the insurgency, but will advise and back up as needed with air support and medical evacuations.

“This is a historic moment for our country and from tomorrow all of the security operations will be in the hands of the Afghan security forces,” Karzai said at the ceremony, held at the new National Defense University built to train Afghanistan’s future military officers.

The transition also comes at a time when violence is at levels matching the worst in 12 years, fueling some Afghans’ concerns that their forces aren’t ready.

Karzai said that in the coming months, coalition forces will gradually withdraw from Afghanistan’s provinces as the country’s security forces replace them.

In announcing the fifth and final phase of a process that began at a November 2010 NATO summit in Lisbon, Portugal, Karzai said “transition will be completed and Afghan security forces will lead and conduct all operations.”

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the coalition will help militarily if and when needed but will no longer plan, execute or lead operations.

Alliance training since 2009 dramatically increased the size of the Afghan National Security Forces, bringing them up from 40,000 men and women six years ago to about 352,000 today. After transition, coalition troops will move entirely into a supporting role – training and mentoring, and in emergency situations providing the Afghans backup in combat, mainly in the form of airstrikes and medical evacuation.

Afghans will now have the lead for security in all 403 districts of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces. Until now, they were responsible for 312 districts nationwide, where 80 percent of Afghanistan’s population of nearly 30 million lives. Afghan security forces were until now carrying out 90 percent of military operations around the country.

The handover paves the way for coalition forces – currently numbering about 100,000 troops from 48 countries, including 66,000 Americans – to leave. By the end of the year, the NATO force will be halved. At the end of 2014, all combat troops will have left and will replaced, if approved by the Afghan government, by a much smaller force that will only train and advise.

President Barack Obama has not yet said how many soldiers he will leave in Afghanistan along with NATO forces, but it is thought that it would be about 9,000 US troops and about 6,000 from its allies
