Between A Liberal Rock and A Conservative Hard Place

Splitting The Red Sea.jpeg

On the alt-liberal left–a “radical Islamist” leaning and violent Antifa. 


On the ultra-conservative right–Neo-Nazi and White Supremacists.


And in the middle (regardless of political beliefs)–good people of faith and integrity with seemingly nowhere to turn.

________


{And I don’t know what this is, but this is what I am hearing…}


Behold and fear a great fear.


Evil and violence will soon be upon you.


The forces of crushing hate will collide and spread throughout the face of the earth.


And the people will suffer a very great suffering.


And they will call out to the L-rd, and they will repent from their misguided wayward ways.

And the L-rd will see their judgement and he will cause a great stirring in man.


Great weapons will be released and a very great cleansing of man’s hearts will occur.


I say to you redemption is upon you.


Redemption first by great pain and suffering, and then by great joy and exaltation.

And peace and morality will be restored on Earth.


Here this and hear it well, the time is short and good people must ready.


Gather yourselves together and prepare for the end of days and the beginning of days.


Those that are good and gathered will see peace and survive the onslaught before my mercy while many others will perish.


{Then the streaming tapers off…}

________


I don’t understand the call for a gathering–aren’t we safer perhaps spread out?  


Perhaps the gathering refers to G-d’s promise to gather His people from the four corners of the Earth.


– And they will walk the sacred middle ground through the Red Sea to the promised Holy Land. 


The liberal left and conservative right have been overtaken by violent nutty extremists and radicals.


They have “split” from normal thinking and doing the correct thing–they have gone over the top!


A new righteous center–driven by faith and a moral compass –desperately needs to emerge now.


Hopefully, this will bring us to a new peace and prosperity–because the current isn’t working. 😉

Watch A Terrorist In His Evil Action

This is an incredible disturbing video from today’s terror attack in Israel.


A Palestinian terrorist is caught on surveillance camera committing his vile deed. 


The terrorist in the brown t-shirt comes down the grocery store aisle.


But he is not there shopping for groceries. 


Rather, the terrorist is stalking his prey–an innocent Jewish man working in the store stocking shelves for customers. 


The terrorist at first takes a pass by the man checking things out. 


Then he suddenly circles back pulling a deadly knife from his waist and starts viciously stabbing and beating the Jewish worker. 


The mortally wounded victim desperately tries to fend off the terrorist attacker as he comes again and again at him.


Fortunately, others nearby chased the terrorist who was apprehended by police, while the victim remains in critical condition in the hospital fighting for his life. 


Unfortunately, this is daily life in the Holy Land, where bombings, shootings, stabbings, vehicular rammings, Molotov cocktails and rocks are used to kill Jews in their one homeland, Israel.


From Paris and London to New York, Orlando, Jerusalem, and all over the world, terrorists continue to plot and murder innocents. 


Yet, how often do we make excuses for them–it’s not their fault, it’s just a minority, they’re brainwashed, if only we gave in to their demands, etc. etc. etc. 


But does anything really seem to make a difference–more people, more land, more palaces and oil wealth, more respect, more morally corrupt votes at the UN, more, more, more…and still the global radical terrorism and human rights abuses continue.


What happens when one day the terrorist attack becomes one employing true weapons of mass destruction–will anyone really be surprised? 


We pray to G-d for peace and security for your people and for evil to be utterly destroyed. 


Oh L-rd, how long will you let these murderous, vile terrorists attack your children…how long before justice is done. 😉

And It Will Come To Pass

Daniel.jpeg

I was walking today and this is what was in my mind…


And it will be in the days of Putin king of Russia and Xi Jinping king of China that Trump king of the USA will advance peace between Israel and its neighbors. 


So that nation shall not life up sword again nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.


And you will quiet your enemies to the north, and to the southwest, and to the far east. 


None shall stand against you. 


The time is coming when great arrows will pierce the hearts of your enemies, and the eyes of the people shall see and know that G-d, the protector of Israel and the judge of all, doth live and fulfills all his promises to those that honor their commitments to Him. 


The answer is in your words and deeds to bring glory to the Maker of Heaven and Earth. 


Sharpen your swords, gird your tongue in prayer, and cover yourselves in the everlasting deeds of your forefathers and mothers. 


The time arrives for all mankind to witness the long arm of the L-rd and know his reign and mercy endures forever. 


Be of faith and good courage. 


And Israel will dwell in peace and security and the world will prosper in the redemption. 


The ambers and ash of history are still warm, but the times of evil and destruction shall give way to a renewal of the simple, the good, and the peaceful following.


He who sits on the throne that is the foundation of all that lives gazes upon his creation with a sadness and promise. 


Those who commit the worst evils will be found guilty and cleansed, and those of pure heart will be guiltless.


Evil will not stand in the presence of the L-rd of Hosts. 


Redemption is at hand and the glorious saving by the spirit that is the spirit that speaks to all with a voice of thunder and lightening, and the angels will be awakened, and man will know and serve Him once more with a full heart and mindfulness to the Almighty.


Blessed be His name and His deeds are magnificent beyond wonder, generosity, and holiness. 


Amen, Amen, Amen.

Jerusalem – Happy 50 Years!

Happy Birthday Israel.jpeg

Just wanted to wish a very happy anniversary to Jerusalem.


It is the 50th year since the liberation and reunification of Jerusalem, the beautiful and eternal capital of the State of Israel. 


Today in synagogue we celebrated with a special kiddush. 


72 years since the holocaust, and Israel doth live!


In song and dance, in prayer and devotion, in doing good deeds and charity, we celebrate our survival and G-d’s redemption and return of the Jewish people to his promised Holy Land. 


With still so much evil in the world–from brutal dictators, terrorists, human rights abusers, and bullies–it is always time to celebrate the freedom and democracy of America and Israel–who serve as a light unto the nations.


Surely as light can drive out darkness, those good people of faith and integrity can overcome the remnants of evil in this world. 😉

Jewish In Florida

USA-Israel.jpegShema.jpegCharity.jpeg

These were three beautiful Jewish things that I saw in Florida in 24 hours.

The first was a billboard touting the wonderful America-Israel friendship and partnership.

“Frontline in the global war on terror.
Best friend and ally of the US.
Providing religious freedom and liberty.
Thank you Israel for sharing American values.”

The second were about 20 cans (“pushkas”) for collecting charity for the poor in a local kosher Pita Plus restaurant.  


Have a great shawarma plater (with mounds of meat) and give back to others in need and hungry. 


The third was a sign in a discount beachy clothing store with the holy Jewish blessing of Shema Israel.

“Hear O Israel:
The L-rd is our G-d.
The L-rd is One.”

There is definitely more than sun and surf and vacation here…


There is a feeling of G-d and faith, of charity and giving, and of special partnership between friends and allies, USA-Israel.

A Curse That Is Really A Blessing

Charity.JPEG

So here is an amazing true story from this week.


My wife was in Israel. 


She went to the Kotel (Jewish Temple Mount in Jerusalem) to pray. 


On the way, an old, poor man stopped her and asked for food. 


My wife gave him her sandwich. 


Then after walking another block, he stopped her again and gestured for assistance. 


This time, my wife gave him some money too.


After this, she asked him if he would bless our family.


And he did and also gave a special blessing to my elder daughter who had just recently gotten engaged. 


My wife also went to the Kotel and prayed for us and her. 


That same evening back in the States here, my daughter and her fiancee ended their engagement. 


At first, the breakup seemed like a big disappointment and that a terrible thing had happened–almost like a curse–but G-d works in mysterious ways. 


When we saw the reasons for the breakup, we realized fully that G-d had indeed heard the blessings of the old, poor man (maybe an angel) and the prayers of my wife.


We wish the young man all the best in his future, but we just saw clearly that this was not the right match. 


So what at first can seem like a curse is really a blessing in disguise. 


Truly, when you give charity, you’re not only helping others, but it’s really a blessing for you too. 


Thank you to the old, poor man in Jerusalem and to Hashem who heard my wife’s prayers at the Kotel. 😉

Tunnel From Egyptian Bondage

Tunnel.JPEG

On Passover, we celebrate G-d’s redemption of the Israelites and the great miracles he wrought in bringing them from slavery to freedom, giving them the sacred Torah, and taking them to the Holy Land of Israel. 


His mercy and kindness endures forever!


While many people think that the Israelites crossed the Red Sea and the desert…


Little do most people know that there is also this miracle tunnel that many Israelites took when G-d took them out of Egyptian bondage and exile. 


It connected them from Egypt and straight to the IRT subway train, which took them to the shuttle that then got them to John F. Kennedy International Airport and on to El Al planes to the State of Israel.


In G-d’s world, there is no limitations of time and space…and He literally brought them on wings on eagles to live in Israel and worship at his holy Temple in Jerusalem. 


For 3,500 years, the Israelite Jewish people have inhabited the land of Israel–from their days and until ours, may Judah be saved and may Israel dwell securely, and let us bless and thank G-d, and say Amen!  😉
