Never Alone Never Forsaken

Sometimes we overthink things.
What is the true, actual, real meaning of Hebrews 13:5B? “for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” It literally means that the Creator of the entire universe, Who loves us, will never leave us nor forsake us. He’s with us always. We are never alone, never forsaken. That is so very powerful – it’s worth thinking on often. Like daily.

No matter what is happening, no matter where we are, the Creator never requires us to be alone or forsaken. אליהו הנביא Eliyahu Hanavi (the prophet Elijah), a great man, and being human, even after big victories, he felt alone sometimes in his efforts of following the Creator and doing His will. He thought he was the only one being true to Him. Eliyahu, of course, found out that wasn’t true, there were many in Israel who hadn’t sold out and still followed the Creator. And there are many of us worldwide today who stand for Truth in Israel, the US, and the world.

Please pray for anyone who feels alone and physically are. Our enemies want us to feel like no one else cares or stands up, to make us feel isolated, but we never truly are. Evil uses lies and censorship, pain and fear to try and control us. If we could see from the whole picture, we would see the prayers, helping one another, loving one another (that doesn’t mean agreeing on everything), and the flow of love and prayers covering everyone. Everyone needs prayer, warriors, victims, and our enemies. Evil wants to defeat us, but Yeshua wins. We need to make sure we act in unapologetic love and courage.

Let Him calm your fears and worries. Stand and be strong. We are not alone nor forsaken.
We stand together. Let Him renew your strength. Trust ישועYeshua and pray. He will hear you.

Shabbat Shalom שבת שלום,

Scrutiny

Truth is unafraid of honest scrutiny and debate.

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7

Think for yourselves and pray, do the right thing even when it is difficult. Never give in to bullies.

Praying for everyone. So much on my heart.

Happy Independence Day, US! 4th of July Celebration!

🇺🇸 For all Americans and all the people around the world who love America, July 4th is a great time to celebrate the US with Independence Day! It’s a day to celebrate by gathering with family and friends to appreciate the Creator’s blessings to us and thank Him, to enjoy one another’s company with plenty of great food of your choice, excellent music, and fireworks set off by people who know how to do so safely.

There are various ways to respectfully refer to the United States of America. The U.S.A., America, US of A, the United States, North America (although, geographically that is also Canada), and as already mentioned, the United States of America, and my favorite is the US, because that’s how I think it is truly reflected – it is US.

I love the US. Many people do – in America and around the world. We all pray for the US and stand up for her. Ideals of freedom fill a person’s heart and should always be held onto and stood up for.

It’s an easy question to answer on why I love the US. I’ll give you a few of the many reasons. I love the people and the beautiful land. I love the Judeo-Christian influences and values that date back before European arrivals. I love the freedom to choose what my beliefs are, and choose the right, Biblical way to worship our Creator. I love the bravery of decent people who care and are compassionate, standing strong for what is right.

I love the good heroes and heroines, those who are known by many or by few. Brave men and women, in the past and now, who contributed or are contributing their talents to make the world a better place. US heroes like the United States Marine Corps Navajo Code Talkers and their essential contribution to win in World War II. They ingeniously made an unbreakable code from the Navajo language that the enemie’s top cryptologists couldn’t decipher. Another US hero, the brave Cherokee Soldier who defeated three enemy positions in Italy during World War II, neutralizing eight and capturing four.

I love freedom of speech, which is supposed to extend to every US citizen, no matter what tech company goliaths do to violate US citizens’ Constitutional rights. They allow murderous dictators to call for our destruction, but suspend and block non-violent patriots. That’s beyond messed up.

An American, US citizen, can be multi-generational, be of the heritage of tribes here on this beautiful land before people from Europe came, or have arrived here legally two years ago, finding a safe haven from communism or other evils.

Here are a few examples of what the US is truly about as shown by so many in the US ~

A neighbor seeing someone who needs help immediately does whatever he or she can.

A father and mother taking their children on a picnic to celebrate Independence Day.

A firefighter entering a burning building to save the lives of people trapped in there.

A boy and a girl going on their first date.

People traveling a distance to assist after a disaster in another state.

Tribes worshipping the Creator in thousands of years of tradition.

The little children who save up money to help feed those who are hungry.

Individuals who band together to end human trafficking.

A citizen who stands up against tyranny wherever it is found – whether it is in person or online.

People of all ages protecting children.

Students respectfully helping out a veteran in a way to say thank you.

Students, parents, teachers, doctors, speaking up and standing up for truth even while they’re being attacked by lying words of enemies.

A husband and wife celebrating an anniversary.

An eagle flying high in the sky.

A police officer responding to a deadly attack and rescuing those in danger, putting the victims’ safety first.

Flying the US flag because a person wants to, not from being ordered to.

No place on earth is perfect, but the US is a much better country to live in than any actually bigoted, freedom-stealing countries. There are some people in America who hate the US and seek to destroy the US with deceitful, destructive lies. Despite the enemies, both past and present, there have always been good people who believe and do what is right. The love people have is bigger than any hate.

Most people get along well and don’t judge a person by their skin, but by a person’s character. All people, whatever skin color, male and female, tall and short, whatever accent or language, are created equally special, equally important, equally loved by our Creator. No one can change that truth with any lie.

This beautiful land is to be taken care of by caring people, not greedy organizations, corporations and politicians gaining more money by creating profit and control focused rules (deals) that don’t help, and often hurts, the land, the animals or any part of the environment. The land should be protected wisely, not used as an excuse to benefit, financially and in power, the very ones who create the environmental damage.

Prayer, faith, standing up, speaking up, knowing the difference between right and wrong and standing strong, doing research, being diligent, having integrity and bravery are all part of fighting and winning against our evil enemies. Do you know another great way to win and recover after being victimized, hurt, done wrong? Be happy, be free, brave, unafraid, continously fighting against evil, and being consistently calm, and successful. That will not only help you, but also others, and will upset our enemies very much.

Those who hate America and want her destruction try to divide us. The haters of the US, freedom, liberty, faith, religion, the nuclear family, are invited to go live in places where they have the things they desire like oppression, absence of freedom of religion, speech, etc.. There are places like that in the world – they are the ones people escape from.

לד צְדָקָה תְרוֹמֵם-גּוֹי; וְחֶסֶד לְאֻמִּים חַטָּאת
34 Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.
Proverbs Chapter 14 מִשְׁלֵי

The patriotic people of the US and those who love her stand together against actual tyranny, communism, nazism, and fascism (using those words accurately by definition).

Celebrate life. Appreciate and stand up for your liberties and be thankful. Something worth having is worth fighting for. Pray for one another. Never give up.

I love the US. I always will. Don’t let them divide and conquer. We are Americans. Us. Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸

Trust

Trust the Creator with everything – that is something I have to remind myself. Things to do in good times or bad ~

Speak up for good.

Stand up against evil.

Never give up on what is right.

Never give in to what is wrong.

Know that if you believe in Yeshua for the salvation of your soul to live for eternity in joy, shalom, and love, with all of your sins forgiven by Him, by asking Yeshua to do this, and trusting Him, He will and no one can change that . No one.

Always pray.

Always trust the Creator.

Always.

Yonah

Acts 4:12
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

James 4:6 and 7
But He giveth more grace. Wherefore He saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Praying for everyone to trust in Yeshua and have that shalom that only He can give.

Memorial Day Actual Observed

We stand up together and we pray together for the Creator to help us.

Memorial Day is to honor and show respect, to remember and not forget, all of the brave men and women, who wanted to live and fought to live, but were willing to risk it all for freedom and to defend each one of us. From all time to this present second. They are not to be forgotten. We should live in a way that honors the timeless truths and ideals of integrity, bravery, decency, and faith that have been fought for and are being fought for every day. We stand up together and we pray together for the Creator to help us.

Thinking of those whom we’ve never met, those whose presence we miss and have never gotten to enjoy. Thinking of those whom we know of and miss. Praying for families and friends of the courageous men and women who fought and died for freedom. My heart and prayers are with you, not just on Memorial Day, because it hurts not just on one or two days.

Two words that are so little, but say so much. Yet some can’t take the time to say them….Thank you.

Never forgetting the brave. Never forgetting the truth.
Never forgetting the POWs and MIAs.
Keep rolling on, Rolling Thunder. True Americans never forget. The Brave and the Free.

L’Chaim! The Jewish Way is Pro-Life

  This article is in honor and appreciation of every wonderful mother and father who truly love their children and take good care of them. I thank my Mama and Daddy for always loving each of their children with a love that is enduring, selfless, honorable, strong, respectful, joyful, eternal, true, unconditional, honest, pure, beautiful and comes right from the Creator.

I’ve been working on this essay on abortion for a while and decided that I should post this in between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. My mother is wonderful and smart – she is an exceptional role model, a strong woman. I love her very very infinitely much. My dad is the way a man should be – he is kind and strong physically, mentally, and spiritually.  I love him very very infinitely much. Both of them are protective. They make a perfect couple. My parents are also two of my very best friends. I thank them and I’m thankful to HaShem each and every day for such a blessing.

  I believe the majority of people in the USA, Israel, along with many others, in all languages, agree that a baby is precious and special. Of course, it doesn’t require a majority to determine right and wrong or facts and lies. Some people of the world, particularly in the propaganda media or depopulation cults, would like for everyone to believe that most people approve of abortion, which is an absolute lie. The majority of people being against abortion soundly debunks the significantly lower number who are for all abortions that includes the cases for “a woman’s convenience not to be bothered with having and raising a baby” or if the baby has Down’s syndrome or any other physical obstacles to overcome. Aborting a baby because someone doesn’t like the little one is so obviously evil – a hate crime and an insult against wonderful people who have Down’s syndrome, blind, deaf, unable to walk, etc.. Never forget those were some of the reasons nazis harassed, divided, locked up and murdered people. There are evil people in the world today who have the same despicable goals and agendas. May HaShem put an end to their terror.

In 1916, a heinous group opened their first “birth control’ clinic which became Planned Parenthood, created for eugenics, population “control”, and depopulation, mainly towards the Black American population. Planned Parenthood tries to distance themselves from their founder, extreme bigot Margaret Sanger, a member of the Women’s Committee of the New York Socialist Party, while they are continuing to fulfill her hateful views and goals of murder. The only way truly to denounce her evil opinions and goals and distance from them, is to actually stop funding them and abolish Planned Parenthood. I’ve always thought that was a weird thing to call themselves…planned parenthood, when they are about talking people out of being parents. Obviously a lot more than that doesn’t make any sense about it. Margaret Sanger claimed to be for women’s rights, but if one of those precious little voices who were silenced and kept from bringing more joy into the world were asked about that, the answer would be something like this ~ “Why did she stop all those little girls from living and growing up from baby girl to womanhood? Why did she destroy those future women’s rights?”

  Some abortion activists use a disproportionate focus on a woman’s health. Most abortions done in the USA aren’t for the mother’s health. Actually, less than 1% are. The reasons for abortions are an attack on humanity, womanhood, and manhood. Abortion hurts the baby’s life, and also the mother’s life and the father’s life, physically, mentally, and spiritually. It hurts the entire scope of humanity. You can’t help but ask again how anyone could be for abortion, i.e., murder? The answers range from selfish convenience to evil uses of aborted babies. It is truly sickening and unfathomable to me how anyone can do that or think that it’s okay. I pray for the babies targeted, compassionate people standing up for them, and also that evil people will turn from wickedness. Anyone and everyone can be forgiven by Yeshua, one only has to ask Him and trust Him to save your soul.

 

 

The Ten Commandmants say explicitly “Thou Shalt Not Murder.” Protecting your family, friends, and yourself isn’t murder. Purposely killing innocent little babies is murder.

  “This is certainly a sin against Torah…It is a crime against Jewry, against mankind, and even against the Land itself…”                          Rabbi Pinchas Mordechai Teitz

  “The default position is that it (abortion) is not allowed, no matter what the American courts may say, and that it’s a woman’s right to her own body and so forth…Judaism says quite clearly that terminating a pregnancy is not allowed.” Rabbi Akiva Tatz

  So, the facts of unchanging truth is that the Creator of us all is against murder and lets everyone know this. The Hebrew Bible, many rabbis, many rebbetzins (plural for the wife of a rabbi), many sages, minhag (Jewish tradition), Halakhah (Rabbinical Jewish Law), and true Judaism are all against abortion, shefikhut damim, the shedding of innocent blood.

  The passage when two men are fighting in שטות Exodus 22 is referred to sometimes when  discussing or debating abortion. This incident is accidental death. Neither were trying to harm the mother or not-yet-born baby. That was clearly not their intent. To say otherwise is to fall into a trap to desperately rationalize the evil act of intentional abortion that a person with compassion and logic will see the difference about.

  It is so clearly obvious from reliable spiritual proof and scientific proof, such as the sound of a heartbeat and the visible sight from an ultrasound. A person has to ignore some very serious and real science to refuse to see we are talking about a little precious baby that evilness tries to deny life to. Anytime abortion is promoted and condoned the question of ‘why’ begs to be asked and should be asked. Misinformation, selfishness, eugenics, sickening murder of babies for evil purposes. I truly don’t understand how anyone thinks they are civilized if they are for such a thing as abortion, because it is demented and uncivilized in the extreme.

  In contrast to the evil works of abortion activists, there are many who speak for the ones who can’t, as already noted. Martin Luther King was against abortion and several of his family members still are speaking up strongly for the innocent babies and working to stop the murders.

“A person is a person no matter how small.” Dr. Seuss

  I’ve heard of many who are thankful for having an opportunity to live who nearly got aborted, including ones who actually did get aborted and survived. They won.

  The Bible, such as already stated in verses 13 and 14 from Tehillim (Psalms) 139, clearly show that an unborn baby, right after conception, has a soul. The Creator sanctifies it.

  Little not-yet-born babies have a personality already. “In the womb he took his brother by the heel,” Hosea 12:4a 

  Abortion, eugenics, euthanasia, depopulation are all words with murder in their definition and motives. They are evil programs and agendas whose goals are murderous and have zero compassion.

  Any question about how I feel about these things? Did I leave you wondering? I didn’t think so.

  Family is important, special, and worth standing up for.

  Let’s speak up for the little ones who can’t yet speak up for themselves and be actively proclaiming לחיים L’Chaim!

Shavuot שבועות

Shavuot in Hebrew means weeks and refers to the Feast of Weeks found in the Torah. Deuteronomy 16:9-12 Deuteronomy Chapter 16 דְּבָרִים

It is tradition that this is when the Creator gave משה Moshe (Moses) the Ten Commandments, the Law, to follow. That this is also when רוח הקודש Ruach HaKodesh (The Holy Spirit), our Comforter, was given by ישוע Yeshua (Jesus) our Rescuer and Deliverer, to have the Law always in our hearts to guide us in the right way in truth as believers, is no coincidence. Yeshua’s words from John 14:10-18 ~

Here are the Ten Commandments from Deuteronomy/Devarim Chapter 5:1-25 דְּבָרִים


The Hebrew word in verse sixteen specifically is about murder – not about killing in self-defense or defense of others. This is important to know. The Creator never contradicts Himself, we must always remember.

As for all Jewish festivals, eating great food is tradition! 😀 Dairy dishes are a favorite for Shavuot. 🙂

Praying that mischacha (family) around the world and friends have a safe and joyous Shavuot. The Creator is worthy of all praise. חנ שבועות שמח  Chag Shavuot Sameach!

Defending Israel

UPDATES FROM ISRAEL 12 Sivan 5781/May 23,2021: Operation Guardian of the Walls Success! Baruch HaShem!

4,360+ rockets fired at Israel from Gaza – Israeli Missile Defense many of them from murdering and destroying. Israel Defense Forces destroyed 60+ miles of terror tunnels. These tunnels were to be used for murdering Israelis, destroying synagogues, schools, hospitals, homes and kidnapping Israelis. 60 plus miles of this – so very thankful the tunnels have been destroyed. Baruch HaShem.

UPDATES FROM ISRAEL 10 Sivan 5781/May 21,2021: It’s now been 4,340+ rockets fired at Israel. Sirens continue to sound daily as Israelis, knowing they have only seconds to get to shelters, have their lives not only disrupted many times each day, but in mortal danger as well. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) continue to do an exceptional job defending and protecting Israeli citizens and non-Israeli citizens both. The enemies of Israel haven’t stopped firing rockets and hiding among civilians. On May 18th and 19th Israel opened up crossings for humanitarian aid for civilians in Gaza – and each time enemies fired mortar shells right at the crossings. May HaShem protect and help Eretz Yisrael.

🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱

As you likely have already heard and are praying about, Israel 🇮🇱 has been under increased deadly rocket attack this week. In the past 48 hours 1050+ rockets have been fired from Gaza.

Israel is working courageously to protect, rescue, and defend Israeli citizens and also non-Israeli civilians in Gaza. 🇮🇱 Please continue to pray for Israel. 🇮🇱 HaShem is watching and protecting. Please pray for everyone who is scared, hurt, and in danger. May hearts and souls seek out the Creator and His healing comfort.

Israel Defense Forces 🇮🇱 are making every effort, going above and beyond, to valiantly neutralize terrorists only.

The majority of US citizens 🇺🇸 are for Israel 🇮🇱 and against any American $$$$ being used to fund these terror rockets from Gaza.

Decency and compassion are on the side of Israel 🇮🇱 and Israel most certainly has every right to defend. 🇮🇱 Am Yisrael Chai. 🇮🇱 The Jewish People Live. 🇮🇱 Baruch HaShem.

יום ירושלים Yom Yerushalayim Jerusalem Day

Happy Yerushalayim Day! We celebrate Jerusalem, the City of Gold, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav, ירושלים של זהב ! ❤

When is Yom Yerushalayim celebrated?
Well, to me every day is to celebrate Yerushalayim, but the day we focus on it specifically is the 28th day of Iyar. This is seven days prior to the holiday of Shavuot.

Why do we celebrate Yom Yerushalayim?
How could we not?!?!? We thank HaShem for giving miracles and the victory in the Six Day War in 1967 with Jewish sovereignity reclaiming and reunifing Jerusalem. It is the Holy City that is protected by the Creator. A beautiful city with a lot of Jewish history that draws us and Jewish present to maintain and Jewish future of promise. So much to celebrate!! 🙂 Baruch HaShem.

Jerusalem If I forget you..verses 5 and 6 of תהלים Tehillim/Psalms Chapter 137
ה אִם-אֶשְׁכָּחֵךְ יְרוּשָׁלִָם– תִּשְׁכַּח יְמִינִי.
5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
ו תִּדְבַּק-לְשׁוֹנִי, לְחִכִּי– אִם-לֹא אֶזְכְּרֵכִי:
אִם-לֹא אַעֲלֶה, אֶת-יְרוּשָׁלִַם– עַל, רֹאשׁ שִׂמְחָתִי.
6 Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I remember thee not;  if I set not Jerusalem above my chiefest joy.

How to celebrate Yom Yerushalayim in Eretz Yisrael and around the world?
With much praise and prayer to HaShem with family and friends with music, singing, fun, dancing, and great food! ❤ If able to be in Yerushalayim – ideal.

Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
There are hard times, but even in the midst of them, HaShem shines His Light and draws us to Him. He offers eternal life through Yeshua – that is an awesome gift that is unmatched, to live forever with Him. He gives us peace as only He can. It is a powerful and very real shalom that one can know is true.

Psalms Chapter 122 תְּהִלִּים
א שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת, לְדָוִד:
שָׂמַחְתִּי, בְּאֹמְרִים לִי– בֵּית יְהוָה נֵלֵךְ.

2 Our feet are standing within thy gates, O Jerusalem;
ג יְרוּשָׁלִַם הַבְּנוּיָה– כְּעִיר, שֶׁחֻבְּרָה-לָּהּ יַחְדָּו.
3 Jerusalem, that art builded as a city that is compact together;
ד שֶׁשָּׁם עָלוּ שְׁבָטִים, שִׁבְטֵי-יָהּ–עֵדוּת לְיִשְׂרָאֵל: לְהֹדוֹת, לְשֵׁם יְהוָה.
4 Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the LORD, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
ה כִּי שָׁמָּה, יָשְׁבוּ כִסְאוֹת לְמִשְׁפָּט: כִּסְאוֹת, לְבֵית דָּוִד.
5 For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
ו שַׁאֲלוּ, שְׁלוֹם יְרוּשָׁלִָם; יִשְׁלָיוּ, אֹהֲבָיִךְ.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper that love thee.
ז יְהִי-שָׁלוֹם בְּחֵילֵךְ; שַׁלְוָה, בְּאַרְמְנוֹתָיִךְ.
7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
ח לְמַעַן, אַחַי וְרֵעָי– אֲדַבְּרָה-נָּא שָׁלוֹם בָּךְ.
8 For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say: ‘Peace be within thee.’
ט לְמַעַן, בֵּית-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ– אֲבַקְשָׁה טוֹב לָךְ.
9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.

Yes, as you can tell, I love Yerushalayim and treasure the City of David, the City of Gold. ❤ I pray for shalom and for protection with victory against those who want to destroy. Am Yisrael Chai! HaShem is faithful. Baruch HaShem.
