The Music Stopped!

Justice Ginsberg has passed.

I do not rejoice in anyone’s death, especially given it could mean they died without Messiah Yeshua and His Salvation. I cannot speak to that in regard to Justice Ginsberg, as I did not know her. What I do know about here, however, is that she supported things that are very, very evil.

She was pivotal in allowing same-sex marriage to become legal and morally ‘acceptable’ by mainstream America. This is repugnant.

She has supported late and full-term abortions, which is probably the main reason there is SO MUCH clamor going on right now by the left, as they scramble to thwart Trump’s appointment of a new justice, dreading the possible overturning of Roe V. Wade, should President Trump put the right person in the empty chair.

She is reputed to have supported many forms of pedophilia, a disgusting practice that is only now becoming part of the news. This woman, who was indeed ‘accomplished’, accomplished a lot of evil.

She, therefore, seems to have been in support of treating perversion as ‘normal’, demanding that those who choose to distort the natural order of things be treated as if that’s just the way it should be. Imagine that: the highest court in the land demanding that we treat MURDER as a ‘right’. That is what she demanded, when she supported the death of BABIES. And along with that, she defended the perversion of mind as normal. Yes, perverted people are humans, and should be treated as humans; but, their perversion should not be promoted, sanctioned, and financially supported by society, any more than we should permit  and pay for murder.  Our society has grown entirely too ‘tolerant’ of sin, and lately, of the worst sins. These sins of perversion are destructive to the very fabric of society, and we are seeing the beginning signs of that destruction. It is inevitable that America will implode, if we do not restore right thinking to the public mind. The Supreme Court is the vessel that will decide our course for the next fifty years.

So, I do rejoice in the empty chair Ginsberg leaves behind, and the timing of it. And I hope Trump puts someone in that seat as fast as a kid winning the last empty seat in a game of musical chairs. Because Donald Trump, whom so many called immoral, has a long list of Supreme Court nominees who are all better than even the ones Bush appointed. He is the ONLY President to WANT to protect babies unequivocally, and stand against the moral relativism that is destroying the minds of the up and coming generations. I want my grandson to grow up and know a righteous people, and not the vandals and murderers who are in office, extending their hands into the states and cities via the likes of BLM and Antifa.

Here! The Voice!

So, today in my reading of the portion and of the prayers, I ‘saw’ a couple of things that I am compelled to share.

First, that the ‘voice’ of יהוה is manifest to us in a way that people tend to IGNORE, including the most ‘educated’ religious folk. In our prayers of ‘teshuvah’, or ‘repentance’, which we read in this 40-day season of repentance, in Dani’el 9, we read each day: “…we have rebelled against Him; neither have we hearkened to the voice of  יהוה  our Elohim, to walk in His instructions….” Clearly, here, Dani’el is calling His Torah, or His ‘instructions’, which is what the Torah/Law is, HIS VOICE. Yet SO MANY ignore HIS VOICE today. Lest there be any doubt, in our weekly reading portion, in D’varim [Deut] 30:10, we read there: “if you shall hearken to the voice of  יהוה  your Elohim, to keep His Mitzvot and His Khukot which are written in this Sefer HaTorah [book of the Torah/law]; if you turn [repent] unto  יהוה  your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul.” His Torah is HIS VOICE, and to LOVE HIM is to HEAR HIS VOICE and DO HIS WILL. Yet so many teachers in Judaism AND Christianity teach otherwise. Most Jews teach Talmud, the voice of the Rabbis, and christians teach the voice of the popes, and many ‘hear’ voices that defy His instruction, but are too proud to know that they are hearing the enemy’s distortion of His Word.

I further ‘saw’ that same verse this phrase:

הַכְּתוּבָה בְּסֵפֶר הַתּוֹרָה הַזֶּה

and it is also in the beginning of the portion, in 29:20

הַבְּרִית הַכְּתוּבָה בְּסֵפֶר הַתּוֹרָה הַזֶּה

The first reads, concerning the voice being ‘written in the book of the Torah’, ‘the writing of the book of the Torah’…. the second is ‘the covenant of the writing in the book of the Torah’. BOTH of these verses have the word ‘haKetubah’ in them. AND, the book of Dani’el does as well, in 9:11 [tomorrow’s date, 🙂 ] אֲשֶׁר כְּתוּבָה בְּתוֹרַת מֹשֶׁה . ‘which is written in the Torah of Moshe’….

Many who read my writing and listen to me teach know that a “Ketubah” is a WEDDING CONTRACT in Judaism. Yeshua renewed the ‘brit’ that was a WEDDING CONTRACT on the night of Passover, when He took the 3rd cup, “after supper”, and renewed, re-ratified, the WEDDING CONTRACT, the “Ketubah”, with our Jewish people! Fulfilling Yirme-Yahu 31:31-34.

The fact that this is associated with hearing HIS VOICE, and TURNING teshuvah/repentance] to DO the WILL of G-d is not lost on me, especially in this season, that leads up to A WEDDING, or Yeshua coming to fetch HIS BRIDE, those who have the Testimony of Yeshua AND KEEP His “mitzvot”.

וְאַף כִּי אַשְׁרֵי הַשֹּׁמְעִים וְהַשֹּׁמְרִים אֵת דְּבַר הָאֱלֹהִים

“Happy are they who hear the D’var HaElohim [The WORD of G-d], and keep it.” ~Yeshua, Luka 11:28

=====================

UPDATE ON 9/11

This day is always somewhat bittersweet for me:It’s my parents’ anniversary. You may remember also that my older brother was born on D-Day, the next on VJ day [europe], and I was born on Pearl Harbor day [and lived in Pearl Harbor as a very young ‘navy brat’]. I remember calling my parents on 9-11 nineteen years ago and wishing them a happy anniversary to the backdrop of death and destruction in our country, and chatting with Dad about this odd ‘coincidence’.This morning, over coffee, my wife and I were reminiscing about family, and all this came to mind. And, the rumors of an inside job, or at least some form of corruption in the US may have aided and abetted those Arab Muslims who pulled this off. There are rumors it was all part of a larger, global plan.It dawned on me, as it did nineteen years ago:WHY did Air Traffic Control at Laguardia and Newark at least not ‘see’ these planes were off course? What is their procedure supposed to be when two jet-liners deviate so far out of planned courses? Are there records of ANY conversations in these control towers about these renegade pilots? Just asking. I still remember so many details about that day. Especially having prepared my children the night before, unwittingly, reading as they sat at my feet:Timoteus Bet Chapter 3 [ 2 Tim ]”Know this, that in the Akharit HaYamim disastrous times will come. And men shall be lovers of themselves and lovers of money, proud, conceited, blasphemers, disobedient to their own people, ungrateful, wicked, false accusers, addicts to lust, brutal, haters of good things, traitors, hasty, boasters, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of Elohim; having a shade of the fear of Elohim, but far from the power of Elohim; from such turn away. For of this sort are those who creep into houses and captivate women sunken in sin, led away with diverse lusts, ever striving to learn, and never able to come to the knowledge of HaEmet.”I told my kids that night that this is where we were heading, and it would just get worse. This past year has proven to me in EVERY WAY that we are in the throws of this wickedness through and through. But, just because people are EVIL, including the religious, and perhaps especially so, that is NO REASON not to STRIVE to serve G-d with a WHOLE heart. If there is ANY TIME that we should turn TOWARD HIM, [repent, and do HIS WORD], it is NOW!!!!We are a mere WEEK, SEVEN DAYS, away from “The Day of The Awakening Blast” [9/18-9/20 this year] on G-d’s calendar. We are exactly 41 yovels minus seven years from the beginning of Yeshua’s ministry. We are exactly 40 yovels minus 7 years from the destruction of Jerusalem as predicted by Yeshua. A “peace deal” with Israel is being brokered with all its Arab/Muslim neighbors. The sign of the woman clothed in the sun, giving birth, with a serpent pursuing her child, was seen in the skies in 2017. Earthquakes and natural disasters are commonplace today. And SO. MUCH. MORE.Now is NOT the time to take lightly your trust in Messiah, and your disobedience to His commands. No one understands His “Khen VaKhesed” (grace and compassion) better than one who strives to keep His Mitzvot. Yeshua signed a “Ketubah” [ wedding contract ] in His Blood at passover 2,000 years ago. He has been preparing a place for us for 2,000 years. He is going to bring His Bride into those chambers. SOON.Know this: ” יהוה is not slow concerning His promises, as some men count slowness; but is longsuffering toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to teshuvah. But Yom יהוה will come as a thief in the night, when the heavens shall suddenly pass away, and the elements shall separate as they burn, and the earth also and the works that are in it shall not be found. Now since all these things are to be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in your consecrated conduct and fear of Elohim, looking for and longing for the coming of Yom HaElohim, wherein the heavens being tested with fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which dwells tzedaka. Therefore, my beloved, while you look for these things, be diligent that you may be found by Him in shalom, without spot, and blameless. And consider that the longsuffering of Adoneinu is for Salvation; even as our beloved brother Pavlos also, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his letters he speaks concerning these matters, in which there are certain things so hard to be understood that those who are ignorant and unstable twist their meaning, as they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction. “”But you, my brethren, are NOT IN DARKNESS that that day shall overtake you as a thief. You are all the children of light, and the children of the DAY; and you are not the children of the night, nor the children of darkness. Therefore let us NOT sleep, as do others, but let us WATCH and be SOBER.”I realize it sounds like fantasy to many. Scoff if you will, to your own peril. But there is nothing more true and sure than that Messiah LOVES His Bride, those who MAKE THEMSELVES READY for His wedding, and His coronation, and that HE IS COMING TO TAKE HER WITH HIM, and then to come and RULE THE EARTH, and destroy all this wickedness….”And HaRu’akh and HaKalah say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ “””Surely I am coming soon.” Amein. Come, Adon Yeshua.”

G-D HAVE MERCY

We, as a nation, have turned a blind eye to the MURDER of innocent children, ‘renaming’ it to “abortion”, for FIFTY YEARS. And now we as a nation are turning a blind eye to pedophilia, rape and molestation of babies and children. We turn sexual CRIMINALS back into the streets at will, KNOWING they will do so again. We are ALLOWING the public conversation to normalize SEXUAL PERVERSION, CHILD ABUSE, AND MURDER.

And you think G-d will bless America? We dare to ask Him to?

“But unto the WICKED G-d says, “What have you to do to declare MY statutes? And that you take MY covenant in your mouth, seeing you HATE INSTRUCTION, and cast MY Words behind you.””

His instruction, His word, says:

“Defend the weak and the fatherless”.

“Do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty.”

“You will NOT commit murder”.

THIS blind ‘tolerance’ has lead to all the other sins so rife in our country, and to the threat of non-existence we now see.

We are allowing ‘music’ and ‘theater’ to objectify CHILDREN, to sexualize them. TEACHING perversion in our schools.

THIS is why supporting a democrat is SICK. IMMORAL. The demonic biden/harris ticket has OPENLY STATED they want to allow the murder of the unborn up to the moment of birth, and even AFTER a CHILD is born.

THE VERY FACT we are TOLERATING such evil in the public conversation is indicative of our nation’s wickedness!

TURN BACK to TRUTH! STAND UP FOR INNOCENT CHILDREN.

Trump is NOT your savior. But, at least HE is speaking up and DOING something for innocent children!

Yeshua, the SON OF GOD, is your Savior, who saves each of us from OUR sin.

To overlook the destruction and murder of innocent people is SIN.

It is the gravest issue in our country today. And FAR TOO MANY are standing silently by.

G-d the Almight Creator of the Universe has been trying to get your attention for YEARS. We deserve all the chaos, because we care more about or 401ks and the value of a dollar, our jobs, sports, hunting, fishing, and our private ‘peace’ than we do about what OUR GOVERNMENT IS SANCTIONING.

You want G-d to BLESS America? I do too. But, He will NOT bless this HORRIFIC BEHAVIOR. Blessings are NOT monetary comfort! That may, in fact, be the curse.

Get THE WORD out!

That has been my desire for years and years.

Right now, it looks ‘possible’ that The Time of the End, known as “Et Ketz”, could begin this fall. That is a seven year period of great horror for the earth.

Thirty years ago, I said a small prayer. I was about to get out of the Navy, and I was certain only that I was going back to East Texas, and would find a career. What that career was, I had an idea, but my plans didn’t go that way. However, I KNEW that I wanted to SERVE Him, my Master, Yeshua the Messiah. And that I needed a ‘helper, suitable for me’. THAT is what/whom Abba gave me first. I met my lovely wife, and we SERVED Him in song on the day we met.  We were a perfect match, and our voices blended to sort of ‘symbolize’ that. Each of us was forced to sing in front of a strange congregation by Patsy, the woman who arranged our meeting. I had to play an old piano when I sang, but I managed to pull it off.  My future bride, of course, was a melodious song-bird. I still remember her dress, the song she sung, and every detail of that day. But, I digress. My small prayer was this: “I will go ANYWHERE you send me! Just let me lead the last soul to you, where ever he may be.”

We have been ‘getting the Word out’ ever since, tirelessly. We have suffered in doing so, and fought many battles. Much like Sha’ul said, ‘but [we] have been troubled by everything, war without and fears within”.  Others simply do not understand how the enemy has come against us and our family, because they have never walked in our shoes, nor shared our burdens. In fact, many have assailed us ‘in His name’. BUT, ABBA has been VERY GRACIOUS to us! And has SUSTAINED us.  And has COMFORTED us. And lately His words from Romim 8 have been our balm, especially mine:

“For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor HaMalakhim [The Messengers], nor empires, nor armies, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else created, shall be able to separate me from the love of Elohim which is in Yeshua HaMashi’akh Adoneinu.” [Rom 8:38-39]

And, over the last few months, after the enemy’s latest, OBVIOUS effort to do us harm        [attacking my loved ones] and my immediate resolution to harm HIS kingdom in Messiah’s vengeance, there has been a paradigm shift. That very next day, Yeshua guided me into saving a soul from the terrors of hell. I was permitted to declare His Good News afresh, personally, and one on one. Since that day, others who already knew Messiah have come to me, asking for direction in how to get closer to Him and become more faithful to Him. And Our Master has given me His words, His guidance, and lives have been TRANSFORMED! Yeshua is genuinely ‘revealing’ Himself to people through our feeble flesh. HE is using our past trials to strengthen us, just as His Word says, and to be bread for others. Some of them have been in ministry for years; some have had great struggles in their lives which they have finally overcome, or are beginning to overcome. And some have ‘awakened’ to HIS WAYS for the first time, and the JOY and SHALOM in His Way, in spite of the fact of trusting in Him years before for their salvation. And for that, WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL, and declare that ALL KAVOD IS HIS! “Kol HaKavod Lo!

Most recently, in my quiet communion time with Messiah, I was reminded of two men who I knew who committed suicide. One I had not met, but knew him only on facebook. The other was a fellow ‘gym rat’, and a former Marine. The first, I ‘detected’ a break in his pattern [I have been pegged a ‘genius’ for pattern recognition. I hate it.], and I sent him a few messages, encouraging and inquiring. To no avail. He never responded. After about three weeks, I learned of his death, by suicide. Not too long after that, about a year, the other friend also went ‘silent’ on fb. I had not seen him in quite some time because he had changed gyms, but I had had the opportunity to minister to him about four years before, and did so; he rejected some of my counsel, sadly. I reached out a bit passively to him when his pattern changed.  It also was not enough, and I learned of his death after a few weeks.  He had PTSD. As I said, I thought of both of these men two days ago in my communion with Messiah. I told Him I would press harder if I ever got in that situation again, and trust the breaks in patterns when I see them.

There is someone rather new in my life, just a new acquaintance, and I learned a few weeks ago he has congestive heart failure. He is my age. He is a former soldier. I saw him yesterday, and he stopped me and initiated a conversation, and I could tell he ‘needed’ it, right away. He explained to me that he also had PTSD, and struggles hard at times. The “militant compassion” I have been praying for and encouraging in our congregation came up in me. The memory of those two men, and my supplication came to me. Messiah’s Word came to my mind. I told him, “Do not ever get alone and get down. CALL ME.”  And immediately requested his number and gave him mine. We talked a bit about his struggle, and he saw my “Magen David” around my neck. He asked me about it, and I was able to speak of Messiah to him, and share His compassion. He left with a new countenance, and I left knowing precisely how to pray for him.

This morning, I got a text from the one I call my ‘doppelgänger’, telling me that someone came to him as a result of our efforts together to “Get The Word Out” on Monday nights on instagram. He told me a friend of his has responded to The Word. He was already  a believer, but has awakened to His Word in its purity, and committed to ‘leveling up’, or committing to obedience. “Leveling up” is actually a phrase aptly related to “justification”.

As I write this morning, I am reminded of one of our daily prayers:

“We shall thank You and tell Your glory for our lives which are in Your hands, and for our souls that are entrusted to You, and for Your miracles that are with us every day, and for Your wonders and favors that happen all the time, evening and morning and noon.” 

Given that our time could be extremely short, I am SO GRATEFUL that at least a ‘trickle,’ a handful of souls are being TURNED, NOURISHED, RESTORED. In TRUTH. Should He tarry beyond the fall, and we be given more time, I hope you will join in our efforts to GET THE WORD OUT!

America has problems.

The biggest problem is the “silent majority” everyone keeps talking about.

Those of us who are ‘trying’ to ‘wake people up’ are being vilified, written off, marginalized.

I want America to wake up; NOT to a ‘q-anon’ movement, which I do think is doing ‘some’ good things. Unfortunately, there are a lot of whack jobs in that movement, perhaps merely to bring it into ill repute.

I desire that America should wake up to the FACT that as a nation she turned her back on G-d, YEARS AGO!  The seed-bed of this betrayal was early in the 20th century, when socialism started. But, the fruit of it began to manifest in the sixties, and then really rear its ugly head in the seventies. First, there was the ‘sexual revolution’. It seems that sex is usually the start of decay in a nation. It became ‘okay’ to have sex outside of marriage. And not long after, it then became ‘okay’ to MURDER babies that are a result of that moral depravity of having sex outside the bounds of marriage.

After that, our nation quickly started touting homosexuality as a norm, offering ‘entertainment’ to make it ‘normal’ that same-sex relationships should be accepted as mainstream. It took some years, but after it became normal in our ‘entertainment’, then it was put before the court that ‘same-sex marriage’ should be normal as well. And the ‘silent majority’ capitulated. Now, we see it rampant in society, being far more prevalent in entertainment than it actually is. But, because of that, it is becoming more ‘acceptable’, and too many young kids are giving in to the notion that they were ‘born that way.’ Our G-d did NOT create people such that they are forced to commit a sin. And it is sin.

As soon as that conquest was won by the liberal democrats, all manner of sexual deviance came to the surface. Now, pedophiles are pushing to normalize their behavior. This is moral decay of the worst kind. And Americans are sitting by and allowing the public conversation to be willing to debate it! THAT SHOULD NOT BE!!!! IT SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY HORRIFYING that people want to harm children, and CALL IT NORMAL! WHY would they want to do that? So that more people will become SICK in their sin.

And now, it is coming out that political leaders and public figures of every ilk ARE SEXUAL DEVIANTS, PEDOPHILES, RAPISTS, and the majority of people are keeping silent, turning a blind eye. Are they hoping it will just ‘go away’. Are they simply not willing to admit that it exists? OR, will our society capitulate to that, too, that so-called LEADERS can do WHATEVER THEY WANT.

These SICK PEOPLE, former presidents, congressmen, professors, movie-stars, LIVE OFF OF OUR DIME, commit the sickest of crimes against humanity, and LECTURE US, and PROSECUTE US for the non-crime of simply DISAGREEING with them, all the while committing the most heinous acts against other humans, including torture and murder.

10If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small indeed. 11Deliver them that are taken away unto death; and those that are ready to be slain will you forbear to rescue? 12If you say, “Behold, we knew not this”, does not He that weighs the hearts consider it? And He that keeps your soul, does not He know it? And shall not He render to every man according to his works?

Americans of all faiths seem to me to be turning a BLIND EYE to ALL of the outcries against injustice, JUST BECAUSE IT IS UNCOMFORTABLE. The very FACT that it IS uncomfortable DEMANDS that we SPEAK UP.

2You shall not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shall you bear witness in a cause to turn aside after a multitude to pervert justice.

2“How long will you judge unjustly, and respect the persons of the wicked? Selah. 3Judge the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute4Rescue the poor and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

There are SO MANY passages in our bibles that DEMAND that we SPEAK UP!!!!!!! You call yourself a believer? You’d BETTER ‘Selah’, or STOP AND THINK ABOUT THIS! G-d will NOT hold us ‘innocent’ if we turn a deaf ear to their cries. Ever hear of a guy named “Kappy”? HE CRIED OUT, and he was murdered. Of course, his death was counted a suicide. So many have tried to speak, and suddenly died!

Even IF you think Bill Clinton did not have sex with that woman, or with those two young women they took to pervert island, do you simply turn a blind eye to the number of their ‘friends’ and associates who have all died early deaths? It is statistically IMPOSSiBLE for two people to associate with 50+ people to die untimely deaths. Do you think it a mere ‘coincidence’ that John Podesta has pornographic  child “art” in his home, and emails that seem to point to pedophilia? Do you REALLY think Obama ordered $60,000 worth of HOTDOGS for the Whitehouse? DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY HOTDOGS THAT WOULD BE?

ALL of this is the result of America turning away from G-d and HIS MORAL CODE, and living lives of sin. Yeshua told us that in the last days it would be like it was in the days of No’akh: “they will be marrying and giving in marriage”. What does that mean.  Just that people will get married? NO! What does Torah say happened in the days of No’akh?

“the sons of G-d [mankind] saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took women unto themselves, whoever they chose. ….. And  יהוה  saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

They slept around. Plain and simple. And that was the beginning of their demise. It got to the point where they thought NOTHING of righteousness. They practiced ‘moral relativism’. And so does America. And now, godless people are trying to burn down our federal buildings, our cities, BURNING BIBLES! And our so-called “REPRESENTATIVES” are SITTING SILENTLY BY!!!!!!!!  And SO ARE MOST AMERICANS!

I cannot. It burns within me to TRY to get ONE person to WAKE UP. NOT to some conspiracy theory, BUT TO THE BLATANT SIN ISSUES THAT PLAGUE US ALL.  And this is the world over, and not just America. BUT, America is the last bastion of hope for freedom in the world, the only true Democratic Republic that is based on FREEDOM. But, most of our rights have already been abrogated. We are simply watching the democrats play Jenga with the rest of them. And now, they don’t even do it in secret anymore. They are brazen and public about tearing down our Republic. And far too many Americans cower in their homes and wear masks to appease these tyrannical democrats who run our society through social media and CNN.  I am livid. And I am NOT ashamed to be livid.

But, I don’t know what to do. I do not have the means to find children who are being abused. Our federal law enforcement is supposed to, but they WILL NOT. Did you know that the FBI investigation in to Epstein began in 2005? While MUELLER was the head of the FBI? And that it mysteriously came to a halt after they spoke to Epstein? WTH? I have been writing my governor, my senators, and my representative, to no avail, it seems. DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am SICK of being told to be silent by fb, and by the media, and passively by society itself. I wonder if I wanted to march on D.C. on Labor Day if anyone would go with me? To at least DO SOMETHING. TO SPEAK! Who knows the logistics of getting that done. I’d go in a heartbeat.

I do think it is entirely possible that ‘end things’ could start very soon. But, if I have to live in this country for any great length of time beyond a few months, I WANT TO LIVE IN FREEDOM. I want to SPEAK UP against the ATROCITIES that our society is trying to NORMALIZE.  And against the MARXIST agenda that the DNC is foisting on us through all their channels [BLM, CNN, CONGRESS]. I have VERY FEW READERS here, and fewer still who will dare to share this. But, here I speak.

We [Messianics/Jews] are about to enter a season of “Teshuvah”, or TURNING BACK TO our G-D. It starts on Aug 20, and goes through Yom Kippur. This puts labor day right smack in the middle of REPENTANCE. Our tradition is to pray TRUE prayers of repentance, and in the Messianic Peshitta community, we add to that tradition the prayer of Dani’el 9:4-19. THIS SEASON means MORE THAN EVER this year. Not only for us, but for our nation.

We can disagree on certain doctrines. But, we should NOT disagree on what SIN is: SIN IS BREAKING THE TORAH. [ 1 John 3:4 ]. Our founders had an ‘idea’ about that, and our Supreme Court told the world that we were founded on JUDEO-Christian principles. Our laws were based on BOTH sides of the book. We SHOULD agree that we need to restore THAT. And we NEED to speak up for the INNOCENT CHILDREN who are being TRAFFICKED into our country for SICK PEOPLE to abuse. They cannot speak for themselves. Will you?

Labor Day :: Monday, Sep 7, 2020…

 

The Counselor was Executed!

Yesterday our little congregation had a great, ad-hoc study session! In it, we looked briefly at the passage below, from Yesha-Yahu [Isaiah] 9:5-6. This morning, in formatting the Hebrew-English version of “HaDavar, D’var יהוה “, I ran across it again, and could not help but ruminate on this very Messianic passage.  Then, it “dawned” on me:

For a boy is born unto us, a Son is given unto us; and the government is upon his shoulder; and his name is called Peleh Yo’etz El Gibor Avi Ad Sar Shalom [Wonderful Counselor (of the) Mighty G-d (the) Eternal Father, Prince of Shalom]; that the government may be increased, and of Shalom there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon Malkhuto, to establish it, and to uphold it through justice and through Tzedaka, from henceforth, even forever. The zeal of  יהוה  Tzeva’ot does perform this.”

This is a very familiar passage to those who study Messiah. I’m not going to debate the interpretation of the phrase in question, but point to the fact that punctuation can change the meaning of it. It is subtle. But, in ruminating on the Hebrew version of: “Wonderful Counselor (of the) Mighty G-d (the) Eternal Father, Prince of Shalom,” my eye turned to “Yo’etz”, or ‘Counselor’. And that is what Yo’etz means.  BUT, I “saw” it in its pieces and parts:

Screen Shot 2020-07-20 at 7.56.40 AM

Above is the word from the Hebrew text. The root word is the third and fourth letters from the right, “etz” which is the idea of ‘counsel’, BUT, is ALSO the word for ‘tree’. Is it any wonder that Elohim used two ‘trees’ to represent LIFE and KNOWLEDGE? And that the word for tree also means ‘Counsel’?

The first letter is a yod, and is seen here:

Screen Shot 2020-07-20 at 7.58.14 AM

The second letter is a vav and is seen here:

Screen Shot 2020-07-20 at 8.06.20 AM

These two letters are very significant concerning Yeshua, whose name is spelled ישוע , and so are the other two letters by themselves, seen in the word Yo’etz, but I’ll get to that later.

The “yod” is the first letter in the name Yeshua, and in the Name יהוה . Our Jewish people understand that this letter represents Yah the Creator. It is the image of a ‘hand’. The second letter is the vav, and is the image of a NAIL, and is the third letter in Yah’s Name, AND in Yeshua’s name.

So, the word, Yo’etz, for “Counselor”, can be seen this way:

YAH/HAND NAIL TREE

Or perhaps, “The Hand of Yah nailed to a tree”.

Etzah [counsel/tree root word] is also the “Ru’akh Etzah” mentioned in Yesha-Yahu 11:1-2, the “Spirit of Counsel”, the FOURTH “Ru’akh” mentioned among the seven spirits there.  That is the middle branch on the “Menorah”, the TREE of the Menorah, which is the Ru’akh HaKodesh/Consecrated Breath/Spirit. The Menorah itself is an Olive Tree, the source of oil for light and anointing. Messiah [anointed one] is the LIGHT of the World.

I just thought I’d share this little tidbit before I start my day.

Shalom! And set your eyes upon the Wonderful Counselor [Yah nailed to a tree] of the Almighty G-d the Eternal Father, our Prince of Shalom! Especially in these days!

 

 

Calm y crazy

I’m crazy. I know that’s what many think, simply because I call Him “Yeshua”, and not His English name.
I’m crazy because I embraced my Jewish heritage.
Because I follow the Torah, and keep the Sabbath, and HIS FEASTS, and not the papal mandate of “sunday”, “saturnalia/christmas, and ishtar/easter.
I’m crazy for thinking that most of today’s congregations, including christian, jewish, AND messianic, are part of the world system of religion called “Bavel”, because they sign contracts with the state.
I’m crazy for believing that the brotherhood of Messiah could actually be compassionate and deeply affectionate, in these last days, when Messiah said that MOST people’s love would be cold and hard, perverting ‘love’, because we’ve turned away from the Torah.
And of late, I’m CRAZY for believing that there has been a plot to overthrow our Republic from within.
I have believed that for years and years. WITHOUT following ONE SINGLE ‘conspiracy theorist’ website. “Q” and “Qanons” are LATE in the game in seeing and reporting that. I began to voice it nearly 30 years ago. The more I ‘see’, the crazier I get.
This video SUMS UP what I believe about our current state of affairs. It was SENT TO ME by a friend; I did NOT go out looking for it, nor do I follow “Q”. I have ONE alternative news source that tracks Q, but that is only part of what they do, and I do not even have time to watch all their posts.
But, THIS VIDEO shows that I am NOT the only one who KNOWS what is going on.
AMERICA, YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE YOUR REPUBLIC IF YOU DO NOT WAKE UP!
Once again, MY LOYALTY lies to the Kingdom of Messiah FIRST and FOREMOST. But, I would PREFER to declare His TRUTH in FREEDOM, and live in a free REPUBLIC versus a communist DICTATORSHIP, which is what we will have if we do not wake up and STOP the LEFT’s power surge.
Where I differ from Q and many others who DO see the evil going on, is that I do not think for a MOMENT that Trump is our salvation. However, I do think that he could be America’s “Yiftakh”, who was a rejected ‘base’ man, yet successful, who came to the aid of Gilad over its enemies. I think perhaps our Elohim COULD be using Trump to rid us of this scourge of leftist wickedness.
BUT, I also WISH that those who are ‘seeing’ all this corruption would SEE their part in it! By sitting silently by, participating in the immorality of rejecting all of THE WORD except the word ‘grace’.
HE IS DEEPLY COMPASSIONATE, but HE WILL ALSO PUNISH HIS PEOPLE.
Pence and other leaders who espouse doctrines of faith have often quoted the famous passage, “if My people, upon whom My Name is called, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land….”
SO OFTEN it is editorialized as above, and leaves out one key phrase:
“If My people, upon whom My Name is called, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, AND REPENT FROM THEIR EVIL WAYS; THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land…”
Q’s message does not implore our country to REPENT. And those who do seek ‘repentance’ have PERVERTED the meaning of it! “Just believe”. POPPYCOCK! SATAN believes and trembles at HIS NAME!
TURN FROM BREAKING HIS LAW!
The perversions and lies that rule this world go FAR DEEPER even than the Qanons understand. It is the PERVERSION of HIS WORD and the LACK of COURAGE to change OURSELVES that is preventing TRUTH to prevail.
So, YES, I’M CRAZY.
But, so was No’akh, who warned the WHOLE WORLD for ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY YEARS that a flood was coming, when for 1100 years it had never rained, while building a huge ship in the middle of dry land. THEY THOUGHT HE WAS CRAZY TOO.
I am of the mind that Yeshua could come back for His Bride VERY, VERY soon, bringing a STORM of FIRE on earth BEFORE the November elections. I’m crazy. But, I’m also studied enough to know that this COULD go on for another generation, just like Isaac Newton guessed about 300 years ago. [The man died in 1727, but before that, he wrote copiously about the Messiah’s prophetic timeline, and surmised He would not return before about 2067]. IF Messiah should linger for another yovel, I PRAY that even HALF of what Q is asserting is true: but more importantly, that AMERICA becomes again what it ONCE was: A REPUBLIC, ONE people, unified in the belief that ALL OF US ARE EQUAL in the eyes of the CREATOR

And THAT THERE ARE MORAL ABSOLUTES.

THE TEN MOST IMPORTANT THINGS:

“I am יהוה your Elohim [God], who brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim [Egypt], out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.
You will not make unto you a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you will not bow down unto them, nor serve them; for I, יהוה your Elohim, am El Kanah [Jealous God], visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and showing compassion unto the thousandth generation of them that love Me and keep My Mitzvot [commandments].
You will not take the Name of יהוה your Elohim in vain; for יהוה will not hold him guiltless who takes His Name in vain.
REMEMBER Yom HaShabbat [the SABBATH DAY], to keep it kadosh [distinctly consecrated, holy]. Six days will you labor, and do all your work; but the SEVENTH day is a Shabbat unto יהוה your Elohim, in it you will not do any manner of work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your man-servant, nor your maid-servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates; for in six days יהוה made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore יהוה blessed Yom HaShabbat, and hallowed it.
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which יהוה your Elohim gives you.
You will not murder.
You will not commit adultery.
You will not steal.
You will not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You will not covet your neighbor’s house; you will not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor any thing that is your neighbor’s.

Learn those in TRUTH, and then we can talk about REPENT.

“May They Be One, Even As We Are”

I’m truly disappointed and sad for my black family and friends, even though I know they are holding up strong. I hope they all know that I truly care about their lives; not because they are black, but because they are my fellow human beings, and in most cases, my brothers and sisters in Messiah Yeshua. I genuinely love them. I have spoken with some of them since the George Floyd incident, and read some of their hearts in their posts online, and had dinner with a very good brother, one of the most intelligent and righteous men I know, with whom I had a very in-depth conversation, and even though they all have similar backgrounds, their perspectives on the BLM vary quite a bit. But, I’m disappointed and sad, because they all have very legitimate feelings, and grievances with society, but their message has been hijacked, and the BLM movement has made it very difficult for many in the white community to hear the actual message of good people who have genuine concerns.

I despise Marxism, Communism, Socialism, and left-wing thinking, and its agenda to ‘transform’ America. I do not think for a moment that Trump or Republicans are the cure, but I do see some very few on the right standing in the way of this Marxist/Communist revolution that is boiling in our country. Though I do not think anyone is standing up enough, soon enough.  This has already gone too far. Sadly, the BLM movement has been proven to be a Marxist wing of the DNC, and ALL the donations that people have made, some of whom genuinely thought their funds would further the cause of the Black community, go to the DNC through a Soros organization. Not ONE dime is going to the survivors of the dead killed in the BLM and Antifa riots, nor to rebuild the black communities and businesses torn down by BLM and Antifa, nor to help bury the black men, women, and children killed in the riots, but to try to get democrats elected and re-elected.  And only that.

Many of my black friends and family believe that the democratic party has never truly helped the black community, but has used the black community, pandering to them to earn their votes, and to keep them bound to the DNC perpetually, dependent on the government.

I have been trying for going on thirty years now to get all my family, friends, and acquaintances ‘aware’ of the undercurrent of political evil that has been at work in our country for years.  I told my son yesterday that when he was an infant, I was in a chat-room on “AOL” asserting that we were, in the mid 90’s, seeing the beginning of a push to ‘socialize’ America, which was for the purposes of making us a Communist nation. I further asserted that this was [already, in the 90s] heading to the point of vilifying the righteous, blaming faith for America’s woes, and creating a scapegoat class of citizens, just like they did in Germany in the 1930s… I wrote a ‘futuristic’ novel, and in it, posited that China and Russia would destroy America. People scoffed and said both those nations were ‘friends and partners’ with America. While it took longer than I thought, the gloves have come off over the past few months, and faith in G-d is now being blamed for America’s woes. Believers in the Messiah [christians and Messianics] and Jews, are being vilified, blamed, painted as ignorant and evil, and that from MAJOR NEWS SOURCES on national broadcasts. “Celebrities” are insulting anyone who is of the faith, and we still line their pockets with our hard-earned money every day. It took nearly thirty years for the signs I saw back then in the mid 90s finally to manifest and become overt, and yet here we are, and MOST PEOPLE STILL think this is just a phase. I specifically remember being ridiculed and mocked those 24 or so years ago, and then losing very good friends back in 2007 for trying to expose Obama’s communism and islamist evil. He did not go as far as I thought he would while he was president, but I guarantee you he is a major player in the BLM and Antifa insurrection going on right now.

I said already in previous posts that we are watching a revolution against our Republic unfold right before our eyes.  People are thinking and hoping this will just die down and go away. What most in the ‘lukewarm’ category of citizens do not realize is just how bereft of compassion and reason devout communists are, how willing they are to deceive and play clandestine games, feign for years to be friends, and then pull out the knife and betray. Communists have stated openly and proved through history that they have a right to kill any political opponent. The same is true of Islam.  This is why they share goals. Is it any wonder that George Floyd’s face ended up on flags in the Islamic nations? I hope my black friends here realize that they are being duped, if they think “BLM” is a compassionate outcry for the lives of black people against ‘systemic racism’. It is not. It is a Marxist attempt from several ‘spinoff’ organizations of the DNC and Soros funded efforts to tear down the Republic. All of it is classic Alinsky tactics from avowed communists masquerading as “Democrats” for the last thirty years.

The mandate of my life has been to “Show the House of G-d to Israel”, to show how the Body of Messiah is One, by declaring the Flesh and Bone Resurrection of the Jewish man, Yeshua the Messiah, the Son of G-d. My loyalty lies to His Kingdom first. But, since I live in, grew up in, volunteered and served in wartime in the US Navy, and have been blessed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to speak freely that Good News for most of my 54 years, I do have a sense of alarm that this country will be destroyed, possibly from within, by electing a democrat in November, and giving the house and senate back to those evil people, who will have no qualms about further enslaving ALL of the American people to the yoke of communism.

My concern over the BLM movement is that it will cause racism where it did not before exist. They are attempting to force white people to choose their whiteness over their patriotism. They are forcing black people to choose their blackness over patriotism. They are causing tension between white and black friends and family members, that right now is simply unspoken frustration, but could end up becoming an ultimatum of choosing one’s race over one’s citizenship.

I truly do not see ‘systemic’ racism in this country, until NOW. I KNOW that there were injustices done by a few police, and that many blacks have been wronged in their life simply because they are black. But the overwhelming DATA shows that MOST police officers do their jobs well. And are not racist. Do we not find it odd that the places from where people are crying out the most about systemic racism are cities that have black mayors, police chiefs, and civil leaders who have been in office for years? “Systemic” means ‘from the top down,’ ‘at every level of’ government. As I stated before, statistics do not lie. Black men are indeed killed FAR more often by black men. Unarmed white men are killed more often by police of all races than unarmed black men. The numbers do not lie.

I lost friends over posting that I was suspicious that George Floyd’s death, which is VERY UNJUST AND SAD, was rife with suspicion. People think me a ‘conspiracy theorist’ for simply noticing issues with the videos. I do NOT follow any websites nor any conspiracy theorists. Ask anyone who knows me at all; I simply do not have the time. But I have studied the various videos of George Floyd on my own. The woman that asked “How long are you going to hold him down” was absolutely just in her question. His death ANGERS me. But, I see too many holes in the public narrative, and have legitimate questions. NOT because I’m a racist and do not care, but because I know just how evil Marxists are, and the lengths they will go to in order to create division. I KNOW they are following Alinsksy’s playbook to the letter, and that most people are oblivious to the attempt to rid the world of the Republic of the United States. And I see discrepancies in the Floyd story: the man in the video looks far too different from the man they arrested. Why were we shown a personal photo that was called a mugshot, when Europe and Asia showed his actual mugshot on television, which is clearly a different man than in the video. If the man they arrested IS the guy in the video, why does he look JUST as tall as George Floyd in the video, who is well over six feet, when Chauvin’s height is reported as just 5’9? My Dad was 5’9, and I’m 6’2, and our height differential was very noticeable, even if we weren’t standing side by side, and I understand Floyd to be upwards of 6’6. Why is George’s head hirsute in one shot, and bald in the final shot? Why do his tattoos appear in one video, and not in the other? Why are we ignoring the fight Floyd put up in the other video shot from around the corner? Why did ARMED and VESTED COPS come and pick up his body , and not Medics? Where was the Medical Examiner? Why did they pick him up so quickly, without checking his pulse, and without the requisite investigation by an M.E.? Why did that transition happen so quickly, when most murder scenes are combed over for hours. Why are the timestamps so different on the various videos? Why am I considered a nut-case for asking these questions? Or racist? I WANT JUSTICE, and I don’t think we are getting it.  And I KNOW that BLM did not care ONE SECOND about his life, because they don’t care one iota about the BLACK LIVES lost in the riots, and BLACK BUSINESSES destroyed by the rioters. BLM is a COMMUNIST MOVEMENT in league with Antifa, Soros, and the DNC, bent on destroying this country through DIVISION of FRIENDS AND FAMILY. Don’t believe me? Watch for it.

I WISH we could have honest discussions about race. I don’t think some of my black friends are willing to hear how I have been the victim of racism, for being white, and for being Jewish. I have ancestors, white and Jewish, who were slaves, and who were murdered SIMPLY because of their race. Is it really only racism if a black person is the victim? Or is ALL racism bad? THAT is why white people echo back “ALL lives matter”; NOT because they are insensitive to the issues in the black community, but because all white people are being called racists by a whole group of black people, who are admitted marxists and revolutionaries, and most white people are simply NOT racist. Remember Harvey? How WHITE PEOPLE in Houston and from parts far away FLOODED into Houston’s black communities to RESCUE our black friends and neighbors? Police included?

I also lost friends over not drinking the Covid coolaid. I know very much that the disease is real. But, way back in Jan-Feb, I was asking questions about the Harvard Bio-chemists who just returned from Wuhan, and their connection to the lab from where the virus originated. These ‘scientists’, biochemists, were on the very generous payroll of China, above and beyond their already exorbitant Harvard salaries. Why? The MSM and Chinese COMMUNIST government TRIED to blame the virus on a bat, while I was saying it came out of the lab, and was deliberately designed and released in order to do EXACTLY what it did. I was asking why Bill Gates had a practice-run pandemic one week before the virus was released. People do not think these are legitimate questions? Still? I believe it was probably a joint effort by China and the previously mentioned groups. For the purpose of fulfilling their agenda. This does NOT negate the severity of the disease, nor does it mean I do not care. People who know me KNOW EXACTLY how much I care for covid victims. I’m just angry that such a big part of our population so quickly swallowed the garbage ‘science’ coming out about how to respond to this pandemic. We are now stigmatized and marginalized, our jobs threatened, simply because we ask LEGITIMATE questions about the ‘scientific why’ of wearing a mask. And I’m angry that so many were so quick to refuse to even think for a moment that the Chinese government and some American scientists would be dastardly enough to release such a thing on the public. Do you think Cuomo and four other Democrat governors did not know that American elderly [republican, likely] citizens [voters] would DIE when Covid positive patients were forced back into nursing homes, against federal guidelines, when they LIED about having done it? They knew, and they wanted them dead, for the SSI and to eliminate their votes. Evolution is partly to blame for this bizarre acceptance of the c19 narrative: they think life forms simply spring from nowhere. NO NEW LIFE FORM has EVER MANIFESTED since Creation. Yet they expect me to believe this ‘new’ disease was not manufactured, a manipulation of an existing virus, and that communists are not so evil they would attack us with a biologic. And I am mocked for even considering the possibility of it, and for asking the questions, and seeing the ‘coincidences’ that abound. It just recently came out that MANY American ‘scientists’ are on the chinese payroll in our universities. Hmmmm.

Humans in the lukewarm category are basically good, but have a tendency for ‘group-think’, even if it goes against their better judgment. I suppose that since I’ve always been side-lined in every peer group I’ve ever had, I don’t tend to follow the crowd; I don’t ‘go with the flow’, but I stand up against group think, before the ‘group’ realizes that their ‘think’ stinks. In Germany, so many otherwise good people went with the crowd on trying to exterminate the Jews. They had a ‘gut feeling’ about it, but they didn’t want to ‘rock the boat’ and not be ‘part of the group’ [think]. They didn’t want to be rejected by the group. ALL the tactics used there in the 30s and in Russia in the 1910s are on display before our eyes here now. I even saw a ‘christian’ just two days ago assert that Jews eat the children of christians at Passover in our Matzah. This is the same exact accusation that was used in Europe to incite the lukewarm christian population against Jews. And NO ONE is speaking out about it. I’m trying, but I have all of 200 people who MIGHT read this, and maybe 10 who will read it all the way through.

Because of our debased forms of entertainment, America is NUMB to atrocity: we have murdered 60,000,000+ babies in 50 years, and thought NOTHING of it. Evil democrats now want also to SLAUGHTER babies AFTER they are born, for the mother’s convenience. And we are not SHOCKED by it. We are not SHOCKED that men are marrying men, and women are marrying women. They demand us to and shame us to think it’s normal. We are not shocked that men claim to be women in men’s bodies, and vice versa. We are forced to say its ‘normal’.  It is NOT. We are not SHOCKED that pedophiles are becoming ‘normalized’ in our society. We are not SHOCKED that children fornicate, and adults commit adultery; in fact, we CELEBRATE it. We are instead SHOCKED that anyone would be shocked by any of these, and those who are shocked by these things are MOCKED and vilified, and censored. This is GODLESSNESS. It is the result of years of changing the public’s mindset on G-d.

Whom do I blame? Lukewarm Christians, Messianics, Jews. Pastors who simply earn a paycheck and do not DECLARE the truth. The ones who supposedly believe in a Righteous G-d, in MORAL ABSOLUTES, but have capitulated, have bent to the will of the PC police known as the democratic party. Republicans who equivocate over moral issues, and do not speak out against the ridiculous and obvious attacks on our constitution. I blame the ‘silent majority’, those who are lukewarm in their faith, for sitting silently by thinking it will all go away. We’ve allowed all the issues pointed out in my last blog to overtake us, by being silent. This is NOT what is meant when Yeshua said ‘we are like sheep led to the slaughter.’

The believing community needs to repent. To TURN BACK to His Ways. To stop committing as much adultery and fornication as the rest of the 30% of ‘unbelievers’ in this country. Stop supporting the vulgarity and perversion of Hollywood. And stop ‘normalizing’ all this deviant and communist behavior that we are so readily accommodating today.

My prayer is that Messiah would come back this fall: “”Surely I am coming soon.” Amein. Come, Adon Yeshua.”” But that if He does not, that enough people will finally wake up to the tactics of the dirty and disgusting left that have been undoing all the racial and economic progress we had made; they are dividing us by skin, class, religion, etc.  And more importantly, I pray that the lukewarm believers will confess and LIVE the faith they claim, and that ALL of us would be BETTER at showing AND declaring the Compassion of Yeshua the Messiah, the Son of G-d, who died for us, so that we would not sin against each other like we have been, especially these last few months. If we sin against each other, we sin against G-d, and we trample the blood of Yeshua underfoot. We make a mockery of His Gospel, and our confession is moot. Let us turn, and instead LOVE ONE ANOTHER, DECLARE THE DEATH, BURIAL, And RESURRECTION of Yeshua, and His forgiveness for us, and His call to ALL of us to come out of the harlot of vain religion and SERVE HIM in truth and compassion.

“For eternal righteousness will return justice, and all the upright in heart shall follow it. Who will rise up with me against the evil-doers? Who will stand up with me against the workers of iniquity?”

“The compassion of Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh be with you all, all you K’doshim. Amein.”

 

 

 

To the Press!

The blog has been silent for a spell.  This due only to the fact that so much is going on, and there are so many things that could be addressed.

We are so overburdened with information and opinion.  We seem not to be able to listen to one another with genuine love, actually to ‘hear’ what our friend or neighbor is saying.  And yes, I said ‘we’, a 1st person pronoun.

So, I went on ‘radio silence’ for a bit.

I am one who does think that the constitutional republic founded by a collection of men who were able, after having fought a revolution against the biggest world power, to come together for about a year to hammer out the details of our constitution and the resulting form of our government.  Immediately thereafter, about a year and a half, the bill of rights as we know it was finally ratified.

Were all of these men ‘christian’ men?  No.  But a great deal of them were.  But, our modern version of christianity differed from what they knew, and many of them had become part of the ‘age of reason’, and had very ‘unbiblical’ views of the faith.  But, most of them yet had a great deal of respect for individual and communal faith, and for the Creator, as seen in the preamble, and as seen in George Washington’s first act as president of the United States.

The attack on our constitutional republic is the overt war we are now in, whereas the attack on truth through subterfuge and deceit has been going on since our inception.  What I mean is this: spiritually, our country has been in a battle of morals since the beginning. It was believers in Messiah who first formed the Republican Party and started the abolitionist movement.  They rightly determined that slavery was an egregious sin, and that it was a scourge on our Republic.  And even though the south held far more slaves, and the vast majority of them at the time of the civil war, it was only a small handful of elites in the South, roughly 6 percent, which included Whites, Jews, AND Blacks, who owned slaves.  If we include the northern states, then only 1.4% of free people owned slaves.  This is NOT stated to diminish the horror of chattel slavery.  I am one that believes the scriptures, that one is NOT to enslave another human, nor to treat them as sub-human property.  And that is what chattel slavery is.  And the practice was committed by christians and Jews, and defended AND opposed by christian and Jewish leaders.  It took years of public conversation and an eventual war in order to purge the country of this atrocity.  And from 1860 to 1933 every president was a Republican.

What many people are not aware of, however, is that before the revolution, there was “The Great Awakening“, which many believe led to the revolution.  During that time, the Declaration of Independence was penned, which reads in part:  ‘the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them….. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights … appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions … And for the support of this Declaration, with firm reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor’ …

And before the Civil War there was “The Second Great Awakening“, which many people believe led to the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation after the Civil War. During that time, when President William Henry Harrison died in office, the next President, President John Tyler, declared a National Day of Fasting, stating on April 13, 1841: “When a Christian people feel themselves to be overtaken by a great public calamity, it becomes them to humble themselves under the dispensation of Divine Providence.”

And before 1900, many believe there was a ‘Third Great Awakening”.  And during that time, the Supreme Court justice, James Brewer, writing the majority opinion on a major case brought before the highest court, wrote: “While the separation of church and state is often affirmed, there is nowhere a repudiation of Christianity as one of the institutions as well as benedictions of society. In short, there is no charter or constitution [among the several states] that is either infidel, agnostic, or anti-Christian. Wherever there is a declaration in favor of any religion it is of the Christian … I could show how largely our laws and customs are based upon the laws of Moses and the teachings of Christ; how constantly the Bible is appealed to as the guide of life and the authority in question of morals.”

Each of these were periods of a re-invigoration of FAITH among the American general public, and each period is rife with political statements about the veracity and necessity of FAITH in the Creator.  The general public came to conclude that the scriptures of holy writ common to both the Jewish and Christian faiths were foundational to the Constitution and the Republic it formed.  So widely held was this belief, that BHO had to say in 2014 that America is ‘no longer’ a Christian nation.  He may be right.

Why do I say that? Because the godless now people prevail in Congress. They use the idea of faith when it suits them.  They pervert the scriptures when they can bend them to match their godlessness. Instead of encouraging faith in our society, they oppose it. And they do so overtly, allowing renegades and belligerents to ‘assemble’ to destroy, loot, and murder, while demanding that assemblies of faith cease and desist. Instead of encouraging morality, they debase the public mind, so much so that now the Supreme Court redefines the word ‘sex’, so that anyone who imagines themselves to be something other than a man or a woman is justified in forcing all of society to participate in their fantasy.

America is doomed.  Because people of faith do not exist, not in the same manner they did before the revolution, or before the Civil War, or before the turn of the 20th century, or even as they did in the 1950’s.  People of faith today blend in so much with the rest of society.  We consume godless entertainment along with the godless. We tattoo our bodies in vanity, which are supposed to be His Temple.  We dress provocatively and not modestly, and many times even in a congregational setting.  We talk disrespectfully to one another and gossip about one another as much, if not more than the godless. We commit adultery and fornication as much as the godless do, and the divorce rate in the community of faith is just as high as that of the godless. And the religious leaders do not cry out against these things. They do not raise the standard.  We have lowered the bar on righteousness, far away from the standard of Moses and of Messiah.  At the same time, many of those that do say they have a walk of faith are so far on the other side of the pendulum, that they condemn anyone with whom they do not agree doctrinally, and they act as if they have no sin whatsoever, like they are above reproach, like there is no wrongdoing on their part.

And so what is the cause of all this acceptable debauchery? What is the root of the lack of an acceptable standard of morality?  Turning away from the common belief in The Creator and Supreme Judge of the World. And for the christian community, turning away from the righteous conduct He demands, to a ‘grace’ that is accepting of every sin, where “Go and sin no more” means nothing.

Is it a coincidence, then, that the theory of evolution emerged during that last Great Awakening? As the Civil War began in America, where a just people were trying to overthrow the notion that there was a sub-human species among us that deserved to be treated as such, and just then Darwin posits that we all emerged from the same source, we, apes, bananas, birds, all of us come from some magical cosmic event. Darwin’s ‘theory’ could in fact be used to justify slavery: “Survival of the fittest”.  By casting off the notion of a CREATOR and THE CREATION, and that ALL men are CREATED equally, we cast off moral constraint.  We are no longer answerable to our CREATOR, but in fact are self-determinative, and as such can make up our own individual morality. Out of this same “intellectual” climate comes Marxism, the “will to power”, and communist nations emerged that proceeded to slaughter all who disagreed with their new ‘moral code’.  This is when man began to slip into the decay of immorality, ‘relative morality’ versus absolute morality, by casting off Judeo-Christian, biblical ethics and the common belief in the CREATOR. So much so, that in less than 150 years we now have men marrying men, and women marrying women. We have the justification of pedophilia, the acceptance of every kind of evil in the congregations.  It is staggering to think that in a country that still supposedly is predominantly christian in population, we have so much consumption of pornography and drugs, so much alcoholism, adultery, divorce, et cetera.  American christians are following in the footsteps of our European forebears in casting off the Creator and His ways, and now we are reaping the benefits of it.

The 1960s were a turning point in moral decay.  The ‘sexual revolution’ and the ‘love the one you’re with’ mentality swept the country. The creation of the welfare system, and taking prayer out of schools, came on the heels of this relative moralism being taught in the universities. And this new crowd of ‘educated’ people began to take control of the public school system, to ensure not only that children did not pray, but that they not BELIEVE!  This was part of the overall plan to ensure that the public had the mind that there was NO CREATOR and no NEED of SALVATION from sin. And then the highest court in the land decides that killing babies is more important than teaching righteousness. Since the 1970’s, we’ve sat idly by and watched the MURDER of 60,000,000 + BABIES, and have not batted an eye.

And we wonder why now, today, the Democratic party, the party of slavery, is erupting in all our major cities under the guise of ‘black lives matter’ to destroy the rule of law. All of this boils down to a great, dichotomous battle: right versus wrong.  Truth versus lies. And the community of faith refuses to speak with the voice of Messiah.  The voice of SALVATION rooted in the compassion of a SAVIOR.  Instead, we bog ourselves down in the argument of who killed whom.  We bog ourselves down in the argument of who wronged whom.  We all conveniently forget that it was whites, blacks, and Jews all sacrificing everything, being willing to and dying together to create a new REPUBLIC; we forget that it was whites, blacks, and Jews all working together to throw off slavery; we forget that it was whites, blacks, and Jews all working together to throw off Jim Crow laws. Was it EVER the ‘majority’?  No.  It always started with a small group of the courageous, who believed in the CREATOR, who knew that biblical morality should WIN.

I have a very small circle of influence.  But I pray that anyone who reads this comes to understand that we are living in the last of the last days, and that it is critical NOW to STAND UP and DECLARE that SALVATION is more dire and necessary now than it ever has been.  Shimon Kefa stood up some 1,990 years ago and declared to the Jewish people, “Save yourselves from this sinful generation.” That generation was only a hypocritical, self-righteous generation that put its trust in its own ability to keep the laws of religious men in order to save themselves. Kefa told them to trust in the one that the CREATOR, in whom they ALL believed, and sent His Son, whom they, along with the nations, executed, to save them from their sin, and that G-d, the Creator, raised the man Yeshua from the dead, to deliver all mankind from SIN. Here we sit some 2,000+ years later, and that message is rarely declared.  We, people of faith, have capitulated to the godless.  We sit idly by and allow the sins of the godless to be among us. We allow them to make our laws. We allow them to pervert our history, to destroy it. We allow them to teach our children, run our universities, and commandeer the public conversation, such that we cannot declare sin to be sin!  We allow them to call us ‘intolerant’ of the people who are intolerant of us. We allow them to scare us into NOT declaring the death, burial, and resurrection of the Messiah for the sake of SALVATION from SIN.  And we have allowed religious leaders to redefine sin and grace, so that we can run amok with the godless.

There are those who think another ‘Great Awakening’ is coming.  I can only hope; but I don’t see it. I desperately pray for it, should Messiah tarry from His return for another generation. I work toward the end of affecting the awakening of as many people as I can, praying, fasting, writing these blog posts, teaching the scriptures, ‘declaring’ His truth on social media and to any in-person encounter I may have. One soul is enough. But not.  But there is so much confusion of truth and distortion of facts, and so much lethargy of thought, that it is sometimes exasperating, to do these things. But, I HOPE.  I DECLARE. And more importantly, I “press on toward the goal to receive the prize of victory of the highest calling of Elohim through Yeshua HaMashi’akh”.  Just like Sha’ul, I have not attained to it, but I press on.

We are in the last of the last days. I cannot say precisely when Yeshua will return, nor would I dare to set a date.  I have ideas, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt it will be sooner than later. Two passages come to mind.  One of which I read to my children back in 2001, on 9/10 at about 8:00 pm. “1Know this, that in the Akharit HaYamim [last days] disastrous times will come.  2And men shall be lovers of themselves and lovers of money, proud, conceited, blasphemers, disobedient to their own people, ungrateful, wicked, 3false accusers, addicts to lust, brutal, haters of good things, 4traitors, hasty, boasters, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of Elohim; 5having a shade of the fear of Elohim [Our Creator G-d], but far from the power of Elohim; from such turn away.  6For of this sort are those who creep into houses and captivate women sunken in sin, led away with diverse lusts, 7ever striving to learn, and never able to come to the knowledge of HaEmet [The Truth].” And then, Yeshua’s thoughts on those times: “34But take heed to yourselves that your hearts may not become heavy by extravagance and drunkenness and the worries of this world, and that day come suddenly upon you.  35For like a downpour it will entrap all those who dwell on the face of all the earth.  36Therefore keep watch always, and pray that you may be worthy to escape all these things which are to happen, and that you may stand before Ben HaAdam.”  Those ‘things’ are the ‘tribulations’ of the time of Mashi’akh HaSheker, and if ever the world was ready for a false leader, a fake Messiah, it is today.  The character of Yeshua has been so distorted, that anyone with ‘charisma’ could rise up and claim to be the Messiah, and the world would consent.  Not me.

“Repent and be immersed, every one of you, in the Name of  יהוה  Yeshua, for the remission of sins…”
