Modern Malaise


Verse of the Week

And by this we know that we have known Him, if we keep His commandments. The one saying, I have known Him, and not keeping His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in that one. But whoever keeps His Word, truly in this one the love of YAHWEH has been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him.

(1 John 2:3-5)

Thought for the Week

Living in this modern age is, in many ways, both a blessing and a curse. Technology can make life easier in many ways; but, the benefits are usually thought of only in the sense of physical ease. The ability to rapidly and easily study issues within the spiritual realm though is astounding even if discerning the data is sometimes daunting. What few folks consider is that when they face their Creator on Judgment Day they will not be able to attribute any ignorance to the failings of earthly leaders. The information is out there if only one cares enough to look.

Yahshua told us the that YHWH's Holy Spirit would teach us (John 14:26). That said the conduits the Spirit uses to convey knowledge may be internal, external or both. There are numerous examples of how YHWH has used men to convey His Word to us. But, in this day and age we are no longer restricted to the individualized personal views of another human being. In the age before computers access to knowledge was more limited and before that access via books was even more limited (by time or literacy if not data). For most of mankind, and certainly for those reading these words, these limitations do not exist today. As such, we are especially, each, individually, alone, solely, responsible for our own beliefs and the way we lead our lives.

Earthly leaders will be held accountable for failing to properly lead others yet that does nothing to erase the damage done to those led astray by false teachings; and, individual failure to learn will not protect one if it is due to willful ignorance. By way of analogy. If you are driving a car you know you are responsible for knowing the rules of the road and are expected to obey traffic signs and signals. If you approach an intersection and willfully ignore the traffic signs and signals you may be alright if it was a green-light; but, if it was a red-light or a stop sign you are in the wrong! By the same token even a rudimentary knowledge of YHWH's Word exposes one to the knowledge that they are personally responsible for learning and obeying His rules of life. Willfully ignoring His signals and signs means you are in the wrong - no matter what advice or instruction was given to you by another person. A police officer cannot legally authorize you to drive 100 mph through a school zone crosswalk with children in it! A “church leader” cannot legally authorize you to do anything against YHWH!

Ignorance of His Way may sometimes be forgiven (e.g. Numbers 15:26), but, ignorance from neglecting to learn better when you have been exposed to proper teaching is a different matter. Have you ever heard that the trinity doctrine is a lie? If you still worship “Jesus as God” you are responsible for it! Have you ever heard that the Sabbath is Saturday and not Sunday? If you still observe Sunday and not Saturday as His Sabbath then you are responsible for it. Have you ever heard that YHWH's Law was not done away with? If you still think His Law is not applicable to you then you are responsible for it. The list could go on . . . do you worship YHWH personally or “God”? Do you observe YHWH's Feasts or those of man (e.g. easter, christmas, etc)? Do you follow the teachings of Yahshua or an alleged 13th Apostle (Saul aka Paul)? The Noahide laws? Tithing? Etc, etc. . .

My point here is not to prove a particular viewpoint; rather the point is that no matter which “viewpoint” you hold (or lack) you are responsible for it - not so called church leaders. You are not a mushroom being kept in the dark and fed manure. You have a choice. You have the ability to learn the Truth. YHWH's TRUTH! As I said earlier, living in this modern age is, in many ways, both a blessing and a curse. A blessing that so much learning is so readily available and a curse that so much of it is and always has been false teaching. Either way the “age of ignorance” is largely past. As predicted in Daniel 12:4, Many shall travel back and forth, and knowledge shall be increased”.

Yahshua told us that he will tell many who thought they served him to go away because he never knew them.

Many will say to Me in that day, Master, Master, did we not prophesy in Your name,

and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name do many works of power?

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

"depart from Me, those working lawlessness!"

(Matthew 7:22-23)

Trying to tell him you are sorry but you were just doing what everybody else did, just what your “preacher” told you to do, will not cut it! Yahshua said, “Many are called but few chosen”(Matthew 20:16 & 22:14). Few will follow the way of Yahshua instead of taking the “easy” way out and following the herd. Following the herd is indeed an “easy” way out - a way out of future fellowship with Yahshua and YHWH!

If the person you have as a “church leader” is not leading you correctly then you need to get a different leader! Get rid of them or move! It is your choice! It is your soul at risk!

Gawd was the Babylonian deity of fortune. COMMENT: The Hebraic Roots Bible note for Isaiah 65:11 is: (773) Gawd or “god” is the name of the Babylonian deity of fortune and meni is the name of the deity of fate. Yahweh is rebuking the people for exchanging His exulted name YAHWEH with the name of the false deity “god”. It is most ironic that on the US dollar, which is the reserve currency of the world, that it is written “in god we trust”. Most are doing this today breaking the third commandment. Exo_3:15, Isa_42:8, Deu_28:58-59

Ever heard of the ten toes in end times prophecy? Consider this:

In a joint statement, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, said they "will do their share" to fight against the jihadist group that has taken control of large swathes of Iraq and Syria. . . .

The move came after Saudi Arabia patched together a 10-nation Arab coalition against Houthi fighters who have made rapid advances in Yemen and launched military strikes against them on Thursday. – http://www.reuters.com/article/mideast-arabs-communique-idUSL6N0WV03T20150329

Gray Areas Increasing


Verse of the Week

Set your way of life without money-loving, being satisfied with present things;

for He has said, "Not at all will I leave you, not at all will I forsake you," never!

(Hebrews 13:5)



Thought for the Week

Last week the Thought for the Week dealt with companies that support issues against YHWH. Since this currently seems to be one of Satan's favorite methodologies I will continue here even though I will still primarily limit this to just three issues - which addresses the majority of companies and practically every government in the world today. Those three issues are: 1) do they support homosexuality, 2) do they support abortion, and 3) do they support Islam. The previous article was too short to address some of the issues that we all face in this regard. My research has shown, for example, that Starbucks is pro homosexual which is against YHWH yet it is also pro Israel which is, in essence, “pro YHWH”. Such cases may present some with a dilemma. For myself this particular case is resolved rather easily. I do not support Starbucks for two simple reasons:1) it's business practices are questionable at best, and 2) I will not abuse the blessings YHWH gives me by squandering $5 for a quarter worth of coffee.

Regretfully many such dilemmas are often not so easily dealt with. Try finding a tech company that does not support issues against YHWH. I try to use open source material if at all possible so at least I am not providing monetary support to aid the enemy – e.g Duck Duck Go not Google, Firefox not IE, Thunderbird for email, etc. Try finding an auto manufacturer, or grocery chain, or internet retailer, etc that does not support issues against YHWH. Though not impossible it is often a matter of degree.

Sometimes the item at issue is less critical to modern life but none the less presents a cause for pause for thought. Try finding a soft drink company that does not support issues against YHWH? The old “Pepsi challenge” is a perfect example of the methodology of Satan's tricks. The choices offered are Coke or Pepsi – both companies support issues against YHWH!

The list could go on ad naseum. This problem has gotten so bad that I challenge you to even find a country whose Government does not support issues against YHWH. A state. A county. A city. A public school.

Between corporate profits and Government spending being primarily focused toward furthering Satan's agendas is it any surprise Satan is winning the battle for the US? For Europe? The World?

For most folks today they have to have money to live; but, few today look closely at who profits from their labor. Are your labors going to obtain needs or wants? Spend your money and your time wisely brother and sisters. The time is drawing ever nearer to when those who worship YHWH will no longer be free to decide how they spend either. Our children are being brainwashed against YHWH, and against individual freedom and individual responsibility. Worship of YHWH has already been banned from the classroom and workplace. It is being forced out of the media and the marketplace. Worship of YHWH, like the US Constitution, is also being forced out of the alleged “Judicial” system! The US criminal justice system is more criminal than just!

We know YHWH will be there for us. Will you be there for Him? Are you prepared to face persecution? Physically? Spiritually?

How serious is the Left about eradicating YHWH and Constitutional rights in the US? Even members of minority groups they claim to represent are not safe. They attacked an individual that was both Black (who they would normally claim to protect as a victim of “white privilege”) and female (who they would normally claim to protect as a victim of the “war on women”).

As if it is not bad enough that NSA is recording everything email, text, and phone call, Big Brother is even monitoring us from power line poles in ways they refuse to reveal even when caught. COMMENT: And “private companies” are hand in glove with them – from the highest tech (e.g. Google) to supposedly old fashioned low tech - Billboards!

The US is doping children into oblivion – one third of ADHD diagnosis' are for kids under 6 years old; and, 75% are put on drugs. Even the CDC finally sees it as a problem. COMMENT: Could it be because diagnosis is based on “expert” opinion since there are no medical tests that indicate ADHD; and, it is often “cured” after a little over a half dozen visits to a shrink - by the parents! PS - The same “expert opinions” that have now made medial errors the third leading cause of death in the US. FYI - White children are far more likely to be diagnosed and drugged than any other race. Are white children more perceptive and as such do they have to be sedated to force them to quietly accept the fact they are being indoctrinated with propaganda instead of being given an education?

Good vs Greed or Wants vs Needs


Verse of the Week

Better is a little with righteousness than great increase without justice.

(Proverbs 16:8)



Thought for the Week

There is an old adage that challenges one to demonstrate they hold a certain principle by stating, “Put your money where your mouth is”. Too many Americans, and especially too many “Christians”, continue to support companies that despise YHWH and the morals that made the US known as “the land of the free and the home of the brave”.

Many of these companies, though major participants in the US, are not even US companies or have begun shifting focus away from the US. For example, PayPal's new Global Headquarters is in Malaysia not the US.

Many of the major US based companies have gone so far Left it is a good thing the world is round or they would have fallen off already. For example, Disney was once considered a bastion of wholesome entertainment for the traditional American family. Now Disney seems to operate with two main goals: hire only homosexuals or immigrants and promote this agenda worldwide! Disney is forcing American employees to train the very people who are to replace them. Employees refusing to go along with the plan lose not only their job but any severance package as well!

We are told, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (e.g. Matthew 6:21 & Luke 12:34). Are your hard earned dollars supporting companies that are against YHWH? Against the morals that made America a great nation?

Any company that supports the homosexual agenda is against YHWH (ref: Leviticus 18:22, 20:13, etc). Any company that supports abortion is against YHWH (ref: Didache chapter 2) Any company that supports Islam is against YHWH and the very principles of freedom that built America – Sharia law is not compatible with the US Constitution!

For all the complaining the Left does about capitalism it has had no problem at all with coercing companies to do their bidding. The Left likes to associate capitalism with “white” greed yet if you try to debate with them they scream like a two year old throwing a tantrum. Perhaps as “democrats” they would do well to recall the words of Democritus, “It is greed to do all the talking but not to want to listen at all”. Hate has always been a barrier to communication and the Left's hatred for YHWH, and for individual freedom devoid of “group think”, dooms most attempts at conflict resolution.

In the past power for a business was often determined by market share. Though market share still matters today, we find that businesses are so intertwined with politics that, as the line between business and government diminishes and blurs, the power of both grows. Google, et al collects internet data for the Government, Microsoft collects e-mails for the Government, Verizon collects phone calls for the Government, Facebook collects personal individual data for the Government, etc. But, it is not just tech companies: even the Target Department Store company has two forensic labs that work for the Government, license plate reader companies offer their services to police departments for a cut of the take from fines, etc. The list is huge and growing!

As another old adage states, “Follow the money”. The Left has been doing more than screaming the loudest they have been putting their money to work for several collective agendas: At the core of which is the ultimate goal of uniting Government and all businesses (not just “Big Business”). Control both and you control the population! That is why they attack even seemingly inconsequentially small “Mom & Pop” bakers and photographers. No rock is too small to be overturned.

Use the power of YHWH's Word to impact and combat the evil of others. Use the power of YHWH's Word, and your wallet, to impact and combat evil companies. Support neither the evil company nor the company of evil.

Intended as an internal correspondence that was meant for the eyes only of the organization's leadership in Egypt the document is direct and to the point: It explicitly states that the mission of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America is "destroying Western civilization from within ... by [the infidels'] hands and the hands of the believers so that Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions." It also details that until such time as they are strong enough to use violence decisively, the Muslim Brotherhood's primary technique to achieve its own stated goal of "destroying Western civilization" is "civilization jihad", which is then described in detail. The document also has an attached list of 29 groups under the heading "Our organizations and organizations of our friends: Imagine if they all march according to one plan!"

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.)

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

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)

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. COMMENT: Yet the US Government is targeting “right wing Christian” groups to combat terrorism! Is it any wonder the US is losing the War on Terror?

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.
