I Will Hope in Adonai אדוני

Sharing a poem I wrote on 22 Elul 5781 (8/30/21). As I was thinking about the terrors that have been going on around the world, and those fighting on the side of good in the battle of good vs evil, I began to pray. The Creator was with our ancestors, He is with us now, and will be in the future. The constant truth that nothing is too much for Him soothed my soul and my hope soared from the shalom He gave me while I was praying, a peace that He gives to each person who asks. I hope this poem will encourage and help everyone who reads it. ❤

I Will Hope in Adonai אדוני

The clouds have gathered
Shadows abound
Echoes of the distant past
have touched the present
What will I do?
I will praise Adonai אדוני.
I will hope in the LORD אדוני.

My heart aches
Tears fill my eyes
I’m at the precipice
What Will I do?
I will praise Adonai אדוני.
I will hope in the LORD אדוני.

Blessings so true
Too many to count
Peace in Him Always
All prayers He hears
What Will I Do?
I will praise Adonai אדוני.
I will hope in the LORD אדוני.

Words of Promise
Words of Truth
Continuous in my soul
Grow louder to be heard.
What Will I Do?
I will praise Adonai אדוני.
I will hope in the LORD אדוני.
I will trust Him forevermore.

Rights

Every human has certain rights given to him or her by the Creator. That is true regardless of who you are or where you live.
The right to worship God in spirit and in truth.
The right to live.
The right to pray.
The right to say no to medical procedures or experiments.
The right to ask questions and the right to real answers. Those paid for by the companies who are gaining money by lies aren’t reliable sources, but are compromised with a serious conflict of interest. The narrative of lies and control is falling apart, making evil people panic as truth is getting louder. Truth has power whether spoken quietly or shouted in the streets.

Everyone has a right to seek God. Thoughtful, kind people and also enemies of freedom and decency can each one call on Him for help in turning toward Truth. Yeshua can change hearts and save souls of anyone alive – joy for eternity. I will not let lies of the devil keep me from my Savior. Believing in ישוע Yeshua, asking forgiveness for my sins, and trusting Him to save my soul is all I have to do and each individual has to do. Baruch HaShem.

Regardless of what some bigoted people think, everyone is on equal ground concerning God’s love for each one of us. Having money or not doesn’t make a person closer to Him or give any advantage. Male or female, either one can appeal directly to the Creator at any time. No age requirements. Any age can trust Him and have prayers answered. It can be any time of the day to have access and be heard by Him. He cares about each one of us and is ready to listen any time of the day or night for any amount of time.

It’s also important to know what rights you have in the country you live in. Some countries definitely have more freedoms than others. After the terror of HaShoah, the Nuremberg Code was made with the desire to protect individual rights internationally. With rights protected by laws of the land, a perp shouldn’t have more rights than a victim. A government official doesn’t have more rights than a citizen.

As people speak up and protest for freedom, I pray for each individual, a team in which not everyone speaks the same language or lives in the same country, but we stand together. In prayer, in knowledge, in strength. All over the world, calling for freedom from evil tyranny, for ourselves, for our families, our friends, and strangers we’ve never met. I don’t know the names of students in Iran fighting the terror regime there, but I’m praying for them and I know Yeshua hears me.

Families, First Responders, Military, Students, Drs., Nurses, Patients, Waiters and Waitresses, Professors, Airline Pilots, etc., I stand with you for your freedom and rights and I’m praying for you.

Please speak up and stand up. Even though I can’t be at all of the places standing up, I’m there emotionally and spiritually by prayer. Tel Aviv, Yerushalayim, Israel, Brooklyn, Manhattan, New York, New Jersey, Hawaii, Italy, Nice France, Dublin Ireland, New Zealand, Melbourne Victoria, Perth Australia, Canada, Cuba – everywhere. Let’s speak the truth!

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32

לעולם לא Never Again Means Never Again!

   Obviously it isn’t enough just to say the words “Never Again”, although it is important to say them, but not as empty words. Why say them and not do what you can to keep HaShoah, the Holocaust, from ever happening again?

  Facts and details of what led to HaShoah and what happened during the sickening horror are available to anyone caring enough to seek them. We don’t even have to guess about what happened, but have many eyewitness testimonies and historical documents from survivors, fighters. They can be read in a number of languages as well as heard. Holocaust survivors, eyewitnesses to HaShoah, have spoken many times, telling what happened, before, during, and after. Putting themselves through it again emotionally, mentally re-living the terror, so that they can warn us to remember these things they’ve told us, never to forget, to try as much as we possibly can to keep it from ever happening again. We need to listen to them and to know. Why? To honor memories of loved ones and protect loved ones, us, others, now and in the future. So that we know what to look for in order to stop it.

  How can we possibly be silent? We should be consistent in speaking up against evil and tyranny, for our loved ones, family, friends, strangers, and also for ourselves. For our freedoms, our obligation to do the right thing to honor our Creator. The guilt from silence when needing to speak up would be a horrible burden. How can we truly claim “Never Again” without purposely noting what happened in the years prior to HaShoah and standing up against the same type of insidious evil now that has infiltrated with the intent to destroy our freedoms and our daily lives? We should never forget, yes, but not stand up to tyranny? Of course we should stand up to tyranny.

  So we know these things, how can we ignore them when we see them happening now? Like what things, for instance? —>>>Targeted persecutions against people who have Judeo-Christian beliefs, public ridiculing/shaming, beatings, censorship, being blamed for practically everything, houses of worship denying entrance to individuals, made to wear something to identify yourself so that your rights can be denied to you, freedom of movement being restricted or stolen like attending school, shopping, eating in restaurants, BDS, separating family, attempts at forbiding Torah/Tanakh/Bible beliefs and prayer, forbidding to gather together to worship the Creator as we believe we should, bullying, attempts at confiscating citizens’ weapons as a means of defense, depopulation efforts (murder), neighbor turning in neighbors, book burning, coerced or forced medical experiments and procedures, threats, small businesses being attacked, looted, burned, broken glass (never forget Kristallnacht), thefts, violence, kidnappings, murder, brainwashing, perversion immorality. The evil that advocates and pursues those things hates all of us. They hate everyone, Jew or Gentile, who opposes them.

  Just as HaShoah didn’t happen overnight, the nazis didn’t suddenly change and stop being evil when World War II was over. Having murdered Jews and Gentiles, the nazis continued to slither into other countries, fortified and aided by some of their own evil thinkers already there – fifth columnists embedded in places that should know better.

  As I listened to wise people, read books, and watched movies about HaShoah, I understood that it isn’t enough to know that we don’t ever want it to happen again, but to see what led to it happening so that we can be on the lookout for those same things. We are to be vigilant to keep it from happening again. So we listen, read, research, and observe, so that when we see an attack coming, we can shout it from our post to watch out, beware, and to stop it.

  Protecting people and looking out for each other is something that is so vital and requires much prayer as well as vigilance. Male or female, any age, help all. I’ve always tried to speak up for little children, including when I was little. Everyone’s voice counts. We all need to stand up for one another and together fight the evil that hurts little children.

  No is an important word. In Hebrew, the word is lo לא. Never in Hebrew is לעולם לא.

  We can speak up and stand up BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!! SO THAT WE CAN SHOUT “NEVER AGAIN MEANS NEVER AGAIN!” No never לעולם לא to being herded onto trains to concentration/re-education/internment, etc. camps, no לעולם לא to being verboten to go to shul, no לעולם לא to being used in medical or social experiments, no לעולם לא to being forcibly or unknowingly sterilized, no לעולם לא to being barred from learning, no לעולם לא to infringement of Biblical rights and destruction of beliefs, no לעולם לא to seperation of families, no לעולם לא to confiscation of weapons, no לעולם לא to human trafficking, no לעולם לא to indoctrination of students, no לעולם לא to murder of our elders, no לעולם לא to the murder of deaf or blind, no לעולם לא to ending free speech, no לעולם לא to cease speaking Hebrew, say no לעולם לא to tattoo/barcode/implanted microchips, no לעולם לא to anything evil, no לעולם לא to being erased and annihilated. And no לעולם לא to disobeying our Creator or not praising Him.

  There are things that I hear about that make my very soul yell out NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I cry deep in my heart as I pray for these horrors to be stopped.
Little children being terrified and/or hurt. I pray for each one.
Little babies murdered.
Chassidic/Orthodox/Haredi Jews being falsely blamed and targeted for attacks physically and spiritually. And I pray for my Jewish people – my heart doesn’t divide into this Jewish group who believes this or this Jewish group who believes something else. All Jews for decency and what is right need to stand together along with all Gentiles for decency and what is right.
Freedom fighters in Hong Kong boarded onto buses headed for “re-education camps”. And I pray for them.
Muslim Uyghurs forced to be slaves to make products for spoiled people around the world. And I pray for them.
Christian families, any nationality or skin color, around the world tortured. And I pray for them.
Nigerian school children kidnapped. And I pray for them.
A person who cares about freedom doesn’t have to be a member of a particular synagogue or church that is being attacked. We don’t have to be a citizen of a country where atrocities are taking place. All that is necessary to speak up is to care about fellow humans. Are you awake? You don’t have to stand alone. We Stand Together. I will not be silent. Todah Rabah (Thank You Very Much) to All who Have Been and Are Standing Up and Speaking Up!

  I listen, read, to honor and also never forget all of the good people who fight and are fighting against forms of oppression. Knowledge is power. Prayer even more powerful. ישוע

  People try to guess what they would do in various situations. Do you wonder what you would have done back in the years leading to HaShoah? What are you doing now? Anything you want to change? Please speak up in person, online, in support of standing together against tyranny, against evil. Most of all, trust the Creator, pray, and fear not. Don’t be afraid of paid propagandists or ai bots or evil people who hate you. God loves you. Be brave and faithful.

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.

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.

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!

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.
1 A Song of Ascents; of David. I rejoiced when they said unto me: ‘Let us go unto the house of the LORD.’
ב עֹמְדוֹת, הָיוּ רַגְלֵינוּ– בִּשְׁעָרַיִךְ, יְרוּשָׁלִָם.
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.
