The US, Palestinians, and YHWH


Verse of the Week

And in that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples;

all who lift it shall be cut in pieces. And all the nations of the earth will be

gathered against it.

(Zechariah 12:3) HRB NOTE - Verses 1-3 is an end time prophecy about how the nations will look at Jerusalem. It is quite interesting to look at Jerusalem today that produces no commodity such as oil, but yet most will say that not dividing Jerusalem is the cause holding up world peace.



Thought for the Week

As with most things in life, when it comes to the issue of “Palestine” and “Arabs”, folks today would do well to study their Bible a little more. The Bible is the go-to history book on Middle East affairs. Modern-day “Hebrews”, “Arabs”, and “Palestinians” are all descended from the same well. It begins with Abram/Abraham as a Hebrew. His sons, Isaac and Ismael, parted ways, in essence, to become modern day Hebrews and Arabs. Isaac's sons, Jacob and Esau, parted ways too; and hence, we have the Hebrew line continuing (thru Jacob) as well as the start of the “Palestinian” line known then as Edomites (thru Esau).

Concerning Isaac and Ishmael: Ismael was the son of the Hebrew Abram/Abraham and the Egyptian slave Hagar. Isaac was the son of the Hebrew Abram/Abraham too but with his wife Sara (a fellow Hebrew). Concerning Ishmael YHWH said. “And he shall be a wild donkey of a man, his hand against all, and the hand of everyone against him; and he shall live before all his brothers” (Genesis 16:12). Isaac on the other hand received YHWH's promises to Abraham. BIG NOTE: This is the single most divisive issue between Jews/Christians and Muslims! Muslims say that the Koran (Qur'an), from the prophet Mohamed, says that it was Ishmael that Abraham almost sacrificed and it is Ishmael who received the promise of God.

Concerning Esau YHWH said, “And YAHWEH said to her, Two nations are in your womb; even two peoples shall break from your body. And one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger” (Genesis 25:23). The twin sons she bore were Esau first and then Jacob; and, their descendants today are known as the “Palestinians” (from Esau) and the Israelites (from Jacob). Why do I continue to place quotes around “Palestinians”? Esau's descendants became known as the Edomites, and concerning them YHWH said, “Shame shall cover you from the violence against your brother Jacob, and you shall be cut off forever” (Obadiah 1:10; HRB NOTE - The Hebrew word for violence here is Hamas, the same name of the terror group in the Gaza strip today.)

The descendants of the ancient Edomites are, in essence, modern day “Palestinians”. And cut off they have been and are! When the world (via the UN) divided the Middle East after the fall of the Ottoman Empire (end of WWI) a small sliver of “Palestine” was to be allocated to the Jews as their own nation – Israel. The people known today as “Palestinians” DID NOT have a nation of their own either so they were given the major part of “Palestine” known as Trans-Jordan; but the Jordanians later kicked them out! None of the Arabs want the so called “Palestinians”! To the Arabs the “Palestinians” are of Isaac's line not Ismael's line and so despise them almost as much as they do the Jews! (SEE NOTE 1) “Palestine” also once covered parts of Syria and Lebanon, etc but as with other Arab nations they do not want the “Palestinians”.

One of the problems today is that the Left does not believe in the existence of any supernatural God and as such will never understand that neither Islamic Terrorism or the conflict of Palestinian and Arab Muslims against Jews (and Christians) will never be resolved with economics or politics. The issue is religion not poverty. The majority of deaths at the hands of Muslims is other Muslims – Shia vs Sunni, etc (think Iran vs Saudi Arabia aka Persian vs Arab). The only thing both sides agree on is that they want to destroy Israel and the West. The primary exporter of Islamic Terrorism against Israel is Iran; and, the Iranian government is so well off it is developing a nuclear warfare program while waging war in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, etc. ad naseum. The primary exporter of Islamic Terrorism against the West is the House of Saud (the Saudi's); and, they are filthy rich!

Two sayings come to mind, “Charity begins at home” and “Know thy enemy”. The Left understands neither. It wants to replace charity with government hand outs that come with the caveat of kneel and obey or stand up and suffer; and, it thinks Islam is a peaceful philosophy whose only drawback is it does not embrace the LGBT movement. Leadership from the Left is like having a blind tour guide describing the works of art in the Louvre! They are clueless yet repeat what they have been told regardless of the truth.

The US has an increasing abundance of need among our own people. It is ludicrous to ignore our own poor while bringing in the poor of our enemies – this only allows the enemy to use more funds to bolster their own war efforts while infiltrating our defenses. It is even more insane that we politically continue to protect the Saudi's and attack Israel! Wake up folks! The Saudi's are on Satan's team!

The UN and the US (under Obama and his ilk) are serving Satan in their push to elevate the “Palestinians” over Israel! The US would do well to remember the fate of those who turn on Israel – e.g. Palestinians/Edomites (refer to Obadiah for more detail, one of the Edomites' sins was that they failed to help the Israelites in their hour of need).

Truth matters! History matters! YHWH's Word has both. Study His Word and Help Spread His Word!

NOTE 1 - Though some of Esau's descendants are in fact “of Ismael” as well as “of Isaac”. Consider:

then Esau went to Ishmael and took Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael,

the son of Abraham, Nebajoth's sister. To his wives he added her for his wife.

(Genesis 28:9) (HRB NOTE - Esau now compounds the sin of selling his birthright by intermarrying with the seed of Ismael, who was born from the handmaid Hagar, and was not the seed of promise.

PS – I have mentioned my use of the Hebraic Roots Bible (HRB) before and in this regard here are a few relevant HRB notes dealing with the above:

Obadiah 1:3 HRB NOTE - (1408) “pride” comes from the Hebrew word to boil or seethe and is used 3 times in the story of Esau and Jacob.

Hebrews 12:17 HRB NOTE - (2427) Worldly sorrow is simply being sorry for not having what one wants and is bred from selfishness. True Elohim guided repentance is a 180% turn from sin, and showing the fruit of that repentance. Esau did not have this and was simply sorry that he lost his blessing (Genesis 27:36-39).

Jeremiah 51:46 HRB NOTE - (1064) The word for violence here is “Hamas”. It is quite interesting that Hamas has most of its fund raising and money sources from the USA.

They do not know the way of peace; and no justice is in their tracks.

They have made crooked paths for themselves;

everyone going in them does not know peace.

(Isaiah 59:8) (HRB NOTE - Although not the primary meaning of the verse, this defines Hamas exactly.)



QUOTE

Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it. – Imam Hassan al-Banna

COMMENT: This quote is from the Hamas Charter referenced below. Obama, Hillary, etc, have been arming Hamas for years allegedly to help fight the War on Terror!



TIDBITS

According to UN Watch: More than half of all resolutions adopted by the U.N. Human Rights Council since 2006 (when the Council was established) in criticism of a particular country have been directed at Israel. In 2013, the U.N. General Assembly adopted a total of 21 resolutions singling out Israel for censure and only four resolutions to protest the actions of the rest of the world’s states. COMMENT: There are 193 nations in the UN. There are 102 countries where so called “Christians” predominate and 56 that are Islamic. Yet the UN acts as though having one Jewish Nation is one too many. It is as YHWH told us it would be. Study your Bible and you may very well learn history before it even happens! :)

From the Hamas Charter 18 August 1988: The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine. Moslem Brotherhood Movement is a universal organization which constitutes the largest Islamic movement in modern times. It is characterized by its deep understanding, accurate comprehension and its complete embrace of all Islamic concepts of all aspects of life, culture, creed, politics, economics, education, society, justice and judgment, the spreading of Islam, education, art, information, science of the occult and conversion to Islam.


COMMENT: The Muslim Brotherhood is considered a terrorist organization even by many Arab and Muslim countries; and, was an un-indited co-conspirator in a terrorism trial in the US. Yet Obama and his ilk support the Muslim Brotherhood here in the US! Obama is an un-indited co-conspiring traitor!

Muslims claim the Qur'an was written in Arabic and is invalid even today in any other language. COMMENT: This though it has been proven many words in the Qur'an do not yield a meaning unless they are traced back to their Hebrew or Syriac sources. PS – Black Muslims in the US may be in for a rude awakening when they learn, as their African brethren already have, that they are considered “second class” citizens because they are not the true descendants of Ishmael. They are “Muslim converts” and not Muslim Arabs.

Consider Revelation 20:4. Who are the only people in modern times who still behead other people? Muslims!

Law - The Left's New Weapon on Truth


Verse of the Week
Whoever turns aside his ear from hearing the Law (Torah), even his prayer is an abomination.
(Proverbs 28:9) (HRB Note: The Torah is the moral code of conduct in life and breaking the Torah is sin (1 John 3:4). Those who rebelliously turn away from hearing the Torah, even their prayer becomes an abomination. COMMENT: Consider also: And it will be, just as I called and they did not listen; so they called and I did not listen, says YAHWEH of Hosts. (Zechariah 7:13)

Thought for the Week
There can be little doubt that laws are an important of the history of mankind. However, law, like most things mankind tries to develop, has the potential to both better mankind's lot or worsen it. Mankind goes downhill when he chooses to think he can create better laws than his Creator. History has shown that the closer laws are to those given man by his Creator the safer and more prosperous man is. History has also shown that the further we drift from the laws of our Creator the worse off we are.
Recently there has been almost a universal attempt to crush, by law, any and all free speech. A prime example is the new “Inquisition” aka “AGs United for Clean Power” which is a witch's coven of 15 state AGs (California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington). These Inquisitors are threatening to criminalize disbelieve in the unproven scientific claim that man is responsible for a catastrophic global climate change. They are trying to pass laws that would penalize anyone who doubts this very dubious and often debunked paradigm. They further assert that dissenters are committing “fraud” and are not protected by the First Amendment. Even the Obama administration is getting in on the act and the US Attorney General has admitted that the Justice Department is considering action against “climate change deniers”.
As if it is not bad enough that they force feed our children unproven theories such as macro evolution they wish to add injury to insult by criminalizing scientific inquiry, even by scientists, unless the inquiry agrees with the Left's political agenda. Well did Orwell state that, “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act”. Orwell also said, “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear”. Satan is the father of deceit and these days he and his have free speech and the Truth under constant attack. Our forefathers fought a Revolution to ensure us the liberty to freely speak what we each see as truth; but, the Left is launching multiple Inquisitions to destroy that freedom.
The Left is not satisfied with just dictating how we behave ( e.g. mandated support for homosexuality) they endeavor to reach the Orwellian pinnacle of dictating how we think. Not just about social issues but even in the realm of so called science. By enforcing their pseudo science on everyone they are, in essence, claiming the authority to declare what is and is not “truth”; and, they are claiming the authority to punish any who challenge such astronomical hubris.
For the Left, man is god, the government is the church, and politicians are the priests. The Left will not be satisfied until they hold sway over the entire world the way the Catholic Church once held sway over European affairs: with Inquisitors wielding the power of life and death over everyone. Today they are seeking the power to economically ruin and or imprison anyone who disagrees with their agendas. How long til they seek, as many all ready call for, the very lives of dissenters?
It has been said that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Well, the Left has been yelling loud and long and using the grease on the palms of most of the politicians. It is time those who love freedom spoke out even louder and longer. If you cherish your liberty, your freedom, your very life, then act now before it is too late. Stop Satan and his minions in their tracks. SPEAK OUT! LOUD! LONG! and OFTEN! ACT NOW! And continue as long as it takes! And, to my fellow worshipers of YHWH, live righteously and enlist your most powerful weapon – prayer:
YAHWEH is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.
(Proverbs 15:29)
Confess your faults one to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man is powerful.
(James 5:16)
because the eyes of YAHWEH are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayer.
But the face of YAHWEH is against any doing evil things.
(1 Peter 3:12)

QUOTE
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. – George Washington
COMMENT: Those that love freedom see these words as a warning; but, know that the Left uses such words as if from an instruction manual on how to gain power!

TIDBITS
Pope Sylvester (314-335) was the first to order the churches to fast on Saturday, and Pope Innocent (402-417) made it a binding law, “Innocentius did ordain the Saturday or Sabbath to be always fasted.”
COMMENT: Even the historical documents of the Catholic Church demonstrate the knowledge that the Sabbath is the seventh day – Saturday! Like the Pharisees the RCC added “burdens” to YHWH's Sabbath. NOTE: Consider the early Church:
But the Jews having gone out of the synagogue, the gentiles begged that these words be
spoken to them on the next Sabbath.
(Acts 13:42) (HRB Note: Another clear proof that the believers were meeting on the Sabbath and not on Sunday, for if the gentiles were meeting on Sunday, then why would they have to wait a whole week . . . they simply would have continued the discussion the next day.)
US GDP growth has not exceeded 3% since 2005 so the past decade has been the worst for economic growth in the USA since the Great Depression.
About two-dozen states require teens to get parental permission before they can use a commercial tanning bed but not to get an abortion. The FDA recently proposed new federal rules to ban all US minors from using tanning beds; but, again not from getting abortions (PS – You can tell them what you think of this here).

Free Speech on the Engangered Species List


Verse of the Week

Those who forsake the Torah praise the wicked,

but those who keep the Torah strive with them.

(Proverbs 28:4) (HRB Note: The lawless will praise the wicked because there are no moral absolutes in their lives)



Thought for the Week

As a nation the US is increasingly less moral, less free, and less intelligent. Common Core is creating a corps of individuals with a profound lack of basic skills (e.g. reading ability), ambiguous morals, and a very distinct lack of reasoning skills. The result is too many in the USA speak in slogans because anything longer exceeds their abilities in reading, writing, and comprehension. I wonder if any studies (other than the obvious historical patterns) have ever been done to investigate an inverse correlation between freedom and ignorance. It might explain why the USA is becoming a nation of sheeple; and, it also explains why the Left is so afraid of free speech that it wants to deny it to any and all who show any independent, moral, or intelligent thought.

Sadly the Government, and the Mainstream media, and the educational institutes of the US, turn rabid and attack those who point out the dangers of such blind conformity. Consider Alexis de Tocqueville's comment: The majority has enclosed thought within a formidable fence. A writer is free inside that area, but woe to the man who goes beyond it, not that he stands in fear of an inquisition, but he must face all kinds of unpleasantness in every day persecution. A career in politics is closed to him for he has offended the only power that holds the keys.” One wonders if Tocqueville could ever have envisioned a coalition of minorities dictating what thoughts may be expressed – the LGBT mafia, BLM thugs, illegal immigrants, etc.

This is in fact a “hidden” danger posed by both legal and illegal immigrants exerting power in the USA. The migrants coming in lack the experience to realize that rights come with responsibilities. Most immigrants to the USA have never had the freedoms that are Constitutionally guaranteed in the USA much less experience in fighting for them or paying for them. The American concept that a Government serves the people best by governing least is foreign to them. They are lured here by the belief that the Government's purpose is to serve them handouts not ensure their freedom. Most are already bought and paid for and are playing the role of dupes for the Government and the Left (like Esau, many have sold their birthright for a handout).

As has been said before freedom is not free. The price is more than blood spilled on a battlefield. It is paid for by the restraint shown when listening to opposing views. By law I must allow others to speak, and by law they must allow me to speak. It is one of the prices we pay for freedom. Efforts to prevent opposing views encourage a Government that decides what can be said and that is a loss of freedom for everyone. Worse it encourages a Government that will even try to regulate what is thought.

Whether the issue raised is race, gender, sexual orientation, immigration, or etc. the US Government is using them all for one purpose – divide and conquer. A people divided will never unite to secure each others freedoms. As human beings we have the strongest of all bonds to unite us if we will only see it – the desire to live without fear and oppression. It has taken mankind thousands of years to break the yoke of slavery. To surrender our freedoms, no matter how well intentioned the cause, no matter how benevolent the tyrant, is to regress to a state of voluntary servitude, which is just a step away from enforced slavery!

Standing up against the growing evil is becoming more dangerous everyday; but, to surrender is even deadlier. For the worshipers of YHWH to surrender the right of free speech is to surrender the right to spread His Gospel. This we cannot, must not, do! If resistance fails going underground may be the only option (again surrender is not an option). The children of YHWH should be ready:

RESIST EVIL:

Then submit to YAHWEH. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.

(James 4:7)(HRB Note: Full 100% surrender to YHWH is a prerequisite for salvation.)

"Casting all your anxiety onto Him," because it matters to Him concerning you. Be sensible, watch, because your adversary the Devil walks about as a roaring lion seeking someone he may devour; therefore resist him, being steadfast in the faith: and know that the same sufferings befall your brethren that are in the world.

(1 Peter 5:7-9)

Prepare to go Underground:

The wise fears and departs from evil, but the fool rages and is sure.

(Proverbs 14:16)

A prudent one sees the evil coming and hides himself, but the foolish go on and are punished.

(Proverbs 22:3)

A prudent man sees the evil and hides himself; the simple go on and are punished.

(Proverbs 27:12)

When the wicked rise, a man hides himself; but when they perish, the righteous multiply.

(Proverbs 28:28)


QUOTE

Courage is an Individual Trait when Governments are Coawrds


Verse of the Week

Be strong, even let us take courage for our people and for the cities of our God;

and YAHWEH will do that which is good in His eyes.

(1 Chronicles 19:13)



Thought for the Week

The US State Department lists over two dozens terrorist organizations that are “Muslim”. After being attacked by Muslim terrorists the USA allegedly began fighting a War on Terror. Therein lies the first problem since terror did not attack us - Muslims did. But, since we have a commander in chief who will not actually name the enemy much less really fight them we are losing ground by playing whack-a-mole with various groups – e.g. Taliban, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al Shabbab, Hezbollah, Hamas, Al-Nusra Front , etc. To make matters worse the lack of a coherent strategy means we rotate between bombing them and arming them.

There are over 100 million Muslims who admit to supporting the use of terrorism against the West; yet, it makes headline news when we “might” have killed a “possible” leader a one of the aforementioned groups. At this whack-a-mole rate more terrorists are dying from old age than from the war the West is supposedly waging against them!

Obama and his ilk are more concerned with getting more potential terrorists inside US borders than they are in defeating “terror”. These mental midgets even concede that to them global warming is a greater threat. They are far more serious about the war they are waging against the American population and are doing far more to destroy our Constitutional rights than they are against “terror”. Muslim suicide bombers do not scare them near as much as “Christians” exercising free speech. To say that the majority of Americans (even the secular) are being disheartened by these misguided attitudes and policies is an gross understatement at best.

To my more secular American brethren all I can say is you had better begin standing up for your rights or you will not have any. For my fellow American brethren who are worshipers of YHWH the situation is a bit more complicated. We are fighting a multi-front war. On the one hand is the Muslim sword threatening enslavement and death for failure to convert to Islam. On the other hand is the US Government threatening enslavement and prison for failure to convert to the godless philosophy of the Left. Some would say we are, as the saying goes, “caught between a rock and a hard place”.

Many who study the Book of Revelation speak of a coming world to be dominated by both a “universal religion” and a “universal government” (SEE NOTE 1). Islam appears to be making a bid to accomplish both and the Left is paradoxically helping (See NOTE 2). Like our more secular brethren we too must stand up for our rights or we will lose them. The attempts by our Government to take away the right to free speech is nothing less than an attempt to place a shutter on the light of Gospel in the USA. It must be resisted at all costs – even at the cost of our lives. Globally, Islamic terrorists wish to place that shutter over all mankind; and, this too must be resisted at all costs; but, the battle for the heart of America must be won before we can effectively contest global Islamization. We are in a war that is both local and global; and it is being waged both physically and spiritually.

YHWH's army is an all volunteer force. YHWH does not draft His warriors, but, if you have been a “weekend warrior” then consider yourself to have been called to active duty! If you have ever prayed, “May Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven”, then DO HIS WILL ON EARTH! There is a war going on in America for the hearts and minds of the people, of our children. It a war being waged with words and laws. If you want Jesus to proclaim your name before the angels then you must proclaim his name before mankind. SPEAK OUT. ACT NOW! DO NOT KNEEL TO SATAN OR HIS MINIONS!

A Berlin Social Science Center study found 65% of Muslim immigrants said religious rules are more important to them than the laws of the country. COMMENT: For Muslims that is sharia law; and, these are the folks Obama and his ilk want to bring to the US. Like Obama they despise the US Constitution!

According to the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) there were a total of 452 suicide terror attacks during 2015. 450 were perpetrated by Muslim extremists – in 22 different countries – and over 10% were carried out by females.

A Wenzel Strategies poll among U.S. Muslims found 58% said criticism of Islam or Muhammad should not be permitted, 45% said that those who criticize or parody Islam in the U.S. should face criminal charges, and 12% said their fellow Americans who criticize or parody Islam should be put to death. COMMENT: This from Americans – not immigrants raised radical overseas! If those numbers make you nervous just think that they only reflect the American Muslims who admit to holding these opinions and also do not include all the immigrants!

Five of the wealthiest Muslim countries refuse to accept Syrian refugees citing the risk of terrorism. Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain: not one has taken in a single refugee from Syria. COMMENT: Yet Obama and his ilk continue to bring hordes of Muslim Syrian refugees to the US while denying entry to almost all of the Christian Syrian refugees (less than 4% of the Syrian refugees allowed in the US are Christians).

From Wiki on the Battle of Tours: Albert Speer, Hitler's Armaments Minister, described how Hitler expressed approval of Islam, saying that Hitler had been particularly impressed by what he had heard from a delegation of Arabs. When the Muslims had tried to penetrate Central Europe in the 8th century, they had been driven back at the Battle of Tours; if they had won that battle, the world would have become Muslim. Theirs was a religion, Hitler said, that believed in spreading the faith by the sword and subjugating all nations to that faith. Hitler considered that Islam was perfectly suited to the "Germanic" temperament and would have been more compatible to the Germans than Christianity. COMMENT: Perhaps that explains Merkel's actions - she agrees with Hitler.



NOTE 1 - In days gone by many considered Catholicism Satan's greatest weapon against YHWH's true followers and rightly feared the widespread power it wielded (The Inquisition, as well as half the Crusades, were against Jews and non-Catholic Christians). But, even a cursory examination of History shows that the greatest enduring physical threat to YHWH's people has been Islam. As bloody and brutal as Catholicism had been it just did not have the staying power Satan needed on the physical front. Hence, Catholicism has never exercised the global power Islam had and still does. It appears that Satan's strategy basically is to use Catholicism to attack “spiritual foundations” while deploying Islam in the more physical theater of operations. The Catholics wanted converts but the Muslims are happy with corpses (one possible caveat being that both seem to be appeased by money if you have enough).



NOTE 2 – Islam is rabidly anti homosexual and rabidly anti feminism – both of which are core tenets for the Left.



PS – Kudos to the courageous politicians in Georgia and North Carolina, sadly Georgia has a coward for a Governor.

Divide & Conquer - The Agenda of the Left and . . .


Verse of the Week

O man, He has declared to you what is good. And what does YAHWEH require of you, but to do justice, and to love grace, and to walk humbly with your God?

(Micah 6:8)



Thought for the Week

If you ever wondered how the Nazis took over the political process in Germany then study what just happened in Chicago. The so called “social justice warriors”, aka the Establishments' Brown Shirts, are doing their best to ensure all opposition is silenced long before any elections even take place. It is not just the fault of the Demokratik Party either since the power structure of the Republikan Party also apparently supports eliminating opposition prior to any elections. These days “the Party” is the entrenched Establishment itself.

It is bad enough that free speech is under such heavy attacks due to Government inaction but the Party members already in power, aka the fledgling Gestapo apparatus, are even looking into making “denying climate change/global warming” a crime (as per the AG). In the name of tolerance and free speech the Left criminalizes any speech they cannot tolerate!

If one wants another example of the hypocrisy of the Left simply look at their movement called “black lives matter”. Without a doubt if there was a movement called white lives matter the adherents would be labeled as racists and unconstitutionally arrested for hate speech crimes. Do not all lives matter? Well, not to the Left (or the US Government) – not even black lives if they were honest.

Ever heard of a black lives matter protest being held against abortion clinics? No. Yet black lives make up the majority, by far, of lives lost due to abortion in the USA. More black lives are lost on an hourly basis to abortion than die all year from police bullets. I guess it is okay to the Left to lose black lives when it is due to sexual promiscuity and laziness.

Ever heard of a black lives matter rally protesting drug abuse? No. Yet the number of black lives lost due to drugs is epidemic. More black lives are lost on a daily basis due to illegal drugs than die all year from police bullets. I guess it is okay to the Left to lose black lives when it is due to the desire to get high or due to the desire to make easy money.

Ever heard of a black lives matter rally protesting gang violence? No. Yet far more black lives are lost to this cause than are other lives from all other races combined. More black lives are lost on a weekly basis due to gang violence than die all year from police bullets. I guess it is okay to the Left to lose black lives when it is due to running all the illegal rackets gangs are involved in.

No, there are no protests about “black lives matter” unless the loss of life is from a police officer's bullet; and, the life lost must be black to cause a protest – even though every year more whites and Hispanics die under the hail of bullets from those charged to protect us.

Is there a problem with the increase of police killings? Yet better believe it – it is horrendous – because all lives matter and in case after case government enforcers are gunning down unarmed citizens, storming innocent peoples homes, and even maiming babies in their cribs. All without being held accountable. There should be a nationwide uproar over this abuse of power; but the Left is strangely quiet on this – the true and larger issue.

The Left is interested in black lives only when they can be wielded as a source of political power – e.g. when black deaths can be translated into black votes.

The entire movement is an example of divide and conquer; or, in military parlance destruction in detail. Teddy Roosevelt warned of the consequences of one example of this: “There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.”

But such comments raise a hue and cry today for tolerance. One need not raise the issue of the morals demanded by our Creator against such ignorance since even secular philosophers recognized the danger of such attitudes. Consider Aristotle's comment: “Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying civilization.” And the USA is certainly dying and it is doing so just as predicted by Abraham Lincoln: “America will never be destroyed from outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

After all, political correctness is primarily a tool for crushing people’s ability to have open conversations in friendship and mutual respect. In this context, it seems very much like a tool to bring all personal relationships under state control. And it shouldn’t surprise us that this is being done today in the name of equality for certain kinds of personal relationships.

The Great American Experiment


Verse of the Week

And then I will declare to them, from everlasting, I never knew you;

"depart from me, those working lawlessness!"

(Matthew 7:23)

(HRB Note: The lawless gospel message that Christianity is teaching did not originate from the bible and when Yahshua returns all those who have been practicing lawlessness will be cast into the lake of Fire. (Psalms 6:8)



Thought for the Week

One of the keys to conducting a successful experiment is the application of “control mechanisms” to regulate environmental variables. Control mechanisms must be in place or the experiment will be meaningless and thus a failure. When the USA began even the Founding Fathers knew it was an experiment and knew that controls would be needed for it to succeed. This grand experiment is now failing because the two primary controls are being ignored. This experiment was conducted by the people and the Government they formed and employed a “control” to regulate each. The people were, in general, regulated by the moral principles of the Bible. The Government was, in general, regulated by the Constitution.

A key component of the experiment was the separation of powers as dictated by the Constitution. The entire experiment has gone awry as the Government (and politicians) resist all efforts at any type of restraining control whatsoever. Under the Constitution all laws must come from the Legislative branch. Yet, today, the Executive branch passes thousands of laws every year under the guise of regulation. The Judicial branch also creates laws all by itself under the guise of “precedents”. As bad, if not worse, both the Executive and Judicial branches randomly and selectively enforce or ignore the laws that are enacted by the Legislative branch.

Taxation without representation was a big issue when the experiment was initiated. Under the Constitution only the Legislature – the representative branch of government – could enact taxation. Yet, today, the Executive branch enacts thousands of new taxes every year under the guise of fees. Failure to pay these fees will result in action to collect even more money under the guise of penalties; and, if necessary the Judicial branch will assist in these collections.

The control mechanism for the people, though not mandated, was also considered an absolutely necessity for success (SEE NOTE 1). The mechanism was, in essence, a moral code of conduct based upon the Bible. Just as the Government is largely ignoring the Constitution the people are largely ignoring the Bible. Just as the Government operates in opposition to the Constitution so too the people are operating in opposition to the Bible.

The people did not just casually and accidentally begin evading moral responsibility. The Government has been enforcing laws and educational doctrines contrary to the Bible for decades. Worse, even so called religious leaders are teaching and encouraging people to behave in ways contrary to the Bible.

The powers-that-be in the Government are happy to see this failure among the populace because they know all to well that a populace that does not hold itself individually accountable will not bother to unite to demand accountability from those who govern them.

By way of analogy: With no rudder to guide the Government and no power for steerage supplied by the people the US has become a nation adrift and lost at sea. The world itself is as a tropical storm that is approaching hurricane strength and unless drastic and heroic action is taken, and taken soon, the US will find itself dashed to pieces upon the shoals of history.

Now, more than ever, the children of YHWH in the US must shine forth as a light for others. They must strive to act as a lighthouse providing a guiding light to aid their country to reestablish a safe course.

The evil that is destroying the US from within is insidious; but, because it has gone unchecked for so long the corrective measures needed cannot be so incremental. Satan and his minions have been deceptively patient and persistent in their attacks on the morals of the US; and, these attacks are bearing a bumper crop of evil.

The warriors of YHWH, even knowing the war will be won in the end, have a duty not to “rest on their laurels”. We can resist “the enemy” best by loving them enough to recruit them to our side.

NOTE 1 – Some comments from the Founding Fathers:

We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. – John Adams

But it is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can surely stand. – John Adams

The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, . . . – George Washington

It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible. Of all the dispositions and habits that lead to political prosperity, our religion and morality are the indispensable supporters. Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that our national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. – George Washington

Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments. – Charles Carroll

The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. - James Madison, 1788

It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians and on the gospel of Jesus Christ! - Patrick Henry, 1765

The Nazification of the USA


The righteous falling down before the wicked is like a fouled fountain

and a ruined spring.

(Proverbs 25:26)



Once upon a time the USA was a self proclaimed bastion of freedom and a light unto the world. Yet in recent times comments have been made comparing the present conditions in the USA with both Rome near the time of her fall as well as with Germany during the rise of the Nazis. There has been much to support both comparisons but as of late it seems the Nazi comparison is gaining ground.

Though the term “politically correct” is considered a modern slogan the practice was long ago instituted with a vengeance by the Nazi regime. The German people, during the 30's, learned very quickly that to speak one's mind was becoming dangerous indeed. In the Universities as well as the workplace a person had to show a “politically correct” view or risk, progressively, being ostracized, to being barred from advancement, to being discharged, to being incarcerated. In Nazi Germany the taboos included primarily being a Jew or a communist, or befriending them, or defending them. In the present day USA the same taboo is fast falling upon those who wear the appellation of “Christian” or conservative.

The Nazi did not tolerate competition and so used propaganda, censorship, terror, etc to seize and hold power. Anyone who cannot see that the same techniques are being used by the Demokratik Party in the USA are blind – think LGBT mafia, the Black Lives Matter Movement, etc. And, no the Republicans do not seem much better these days. It almost seems the options are the SS or the SA (SEE NOTE 1)!

There is no doubt that Nazi methods are being employed, the difference is only a matter of degree and that difference is waning. Free speech is under heavy attack as is the freedom of religion AND the free exercise thereof! The sphere of personal privacy grows smaller everyday. Life is no longer sacred as evidenced by the rapid escalation of abortion and the number of citizens murdered under the guise of law. Liberty is increasingly restricted and is at the whim of the Government - consider eminent domain, asset forfeiture, etc. The pursuit of happiness has been made conditional upon compliance with government standards of what is allowed to create happiness – consider the requirement to have a permit or license for almost every activity, any of which may be denied or taken away without trial.

As far as the SS and the Gestapo are concerned remember they started out small using little things like being able to open mail, tap phones, conduct searches, make arrests, etc without court approval – even incarcerating citizens without trial. If it sounds like the Patriot Act it should – it is straight from the Nazi playbook (research Hitler's “Decree for the Protection of the People and the State”). The only things missing are official Block Wardens (semi-official informers are already operating) and concentration camps (executive legislation for this is in place).

As in Nazi Germany mere acquiescence to the party line in not enough, support is demanded on pain of a censorship which is growing increasingly punitive. Yet when the Nazis started out they knew they could never control all the adults so they placed great emphasis on the indoctrination potential of the educational systems (See NOTE 2). The educational systems of the US have for some time also focused more on social indoctrination than the acquisition of knowledge. True the goals were sometimes different but the methods are the same (i.e. the Nazis wanted kids to be pro heterosexual and pro traditional marriage and family – the Demokrats want kids to be pro homosexual and anti traditional marriage and family.) The Nazi's considered homosexuality a blight on mankind whereas the USA idealizes homosexuality to the extent that being a homosexual in the USA confers the same heightened political status that Nazi Party membership would have held in Nazi Germany.

Also, Obama has taken a page from Nazi history and is using his “I have a pen and a phone” attitude as if he was operating under a new form of the Nazi Enabling Act (or the Weimar Article 48). Sadly, the cowards in Congress continue to allow Obama to not only enact laws as he sees fit but to disregard the laws that are Constitutionally passed by Congress and or by the States. It is like seeing Hitler and the Reichsatg all over again. Folks seem to forget that Hitler and the Nazis were elected by the people (SEE NOTE 3).

Yet there are differences; one is that Hitler promised food on the table - by creating jobs for workers, while in the USA Obama and the Demokratik Party also promise food on the table – though by taxing the workers with jobs.

The bottom line to all this is that both Nazi Germany and the USA turned a blind eye to YHWH. They disregard His wisdom and act as if those who temporarily hold secular power are in fact the Supreme Authority. Believing man has evolved they go a step further and cling religiously to dogmas proclaiming their own superiority over their fellow man and thus assert a “right” to tell others how they must act, think, and live with no regard for our Creator.

If the USA cannot be brought back to YHWH it would be better that she go the way of Rome and fall to migrant hordes (also in progress) rather than become an evil Nazi-like monster that devours her own and embroils half the world in her own destruction.

NOTE 1 – The SA were the original Stormtroopers and were led by Ernst Rohm, a homosexual.

NOTE 2 – Just as the Nazis employed the Hitler Youth to push the Nazi agenda in the extracurricular activities of the next generations so too the Demokrats have ensured their agenda (e.g. pro-LGBT) is in place with the “Boy Scouts”, “Girl Scouts”, “AmeriCorps”, “Peace Corps”, and even the Military!

NOTE 3 - “Instead of working to achieve power by an armed rising, we will have to hold our noses and enter the Reichstag. If outvoting them takes longer than outshooting them, at least the result will be guaranteed by their own constitution. Sooner of later we will have a majority, and after that we shall have Germany.” (Hitler, in a letter from Prison 1924)

COMMENT: A Constitution, like the Bible, does no good if The People do not read it, learn it, follow it, and, in the case of the Constitutions of the US, enforce it – both in letter and spirit. The US Government is ignoring the Constitution and The People are allowing it!

Just as the Nazis (and Soviets) erected great barriers against people wanting to flee the country so too the USA is doing so.
