EXALTATION TO GIVE GLORY TO THE CREATOR GOD OF ISRAEL:
thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest
thou thyself in times of trouble?
The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor:
let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire,
and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God:
God is not in all his thoughts.
His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight:
as for all his enemies, he puffeth at
He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.
His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud:
under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages:
in the secret places doth he murder the innocent:
his eyes are privily set against the
He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor:
he doth catch the poor, when he draweth
him into his net.
He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.
Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.”
Psalm 10:1 - 12
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE LAWKEEPERS, CO.:
ALL PRAISES BE TO THE MOST HIGH YIHOVAH,
ELOHIM OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB
PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME
FOR HE IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED!!!
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God [is] one LORD:
The following short article is hot off the press. This article was taken from the “english.alarabiya.net” website. It sheds light on what the usurpers of the true identity of the House of Yisrael are up to today. The current government in power in the land that belongs to the MOST HIGH is trying to legislatively shut the door to citizenship for the rest of the non-jewish world. The land of Israel was promised to the children of Jacob/Israel the son of Isaac who was the son of Abraham. The MOST HIGH says in the scriptures that the House of Yisrael must return to Israel.
ISRAELI CABINET VOTES
FOR ‘JEWISH STATE’ DRAFT LAW
By Staff Writer, Al Arabiya News
Sunday, 23 November 2014
The Israeli government on Sunday approved a controversial proposal that considers Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people, raising questions about the future of Israel’s non-Jewish population.
Following a stormy meeting, the cabinet voted 14 to six in favor of the proposal, with ministers from the two centrist parties -- HaTnuah led by Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Yesh Atid of Finance Minister Yair Lapid -- voting against, media reports said.
The draft legislation still needs to be approved in parliament to become a law, but the government’s decision looks to further escalate tensions with Arab Israelis and Palestinians. It could also destabilize Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition government due to the fierce opposition of two of his more centrist partners.
The bill calls for recognizing Israel’s Jewish character, institutionalizing Jewish law as an inspiration for legislation, and delisting Arabic as an official language. Opponents say the bill undermines Israel’s democratic character, and rights groups have called it racist, the Associated Press reported.
Arabs make up about 20 percent of Israel’s
population and strongly oppose the bill.
If the proposal becomes law, it would mean “the institutionalization of racism, which is already a reality on the street, in both law and at the heart of the political system,” warned Majd Kayyal of Adalah, the Legal Centre for Arab Minority Rights in Israel.
“Democracy guarantees that all citizens have the same rights and are equal before the state but this racist change introduces a distinction on the basis of religion,” he said.
Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, the government’s legal adviser, has also criticized the proposal, saying it weakens the state’s democratic character.
Last week, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni managed to postpone an earlier attempt to put the proposal to the vote.
Denis Charbit, a political scientist at Israel’s Open University, predicted that a final version of the text is likely to be more moderate.
“This is a political charade. Netanyahu knows that voting on an unacceptable bill which has been criticized by the government’s legal adviser is extremely problematic,” he told AFP.
“The text proposed by Netanyahu is more moderate but it is still problematic because he disassociates the Jewish character from the democratic character of the state and this institutionalizes a hierarchy between them, to the detriment of democracy.”
We shall see who has the last word on the rightful people to live in Israel!
Let’s stop trying to be like all the nations which worship false gods. Let’s put our hearts and minds on truly exiting this evil land called the United States of America and return to our beautiful land that is the apple of the eye of the MOST HIGH!!!! Let us return to the land of our forefathers, the land of our inheritance……ISRAEL!!!
LEAD, FOLLOW, or GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!
Let’s stop trying to be accepted by other nations
and return to our own homeland
and be about the business of rebuilding YIHOVAH’s Temple
so that we can have HIM in our midst
and be the blessed nation that we are supposed to be.
May ELOHIM have mercy upon the whole House of YISRAEL and deliver all of us who Fear HIM back into HIS Land.
For the kingdom [is] the LORD'S: and he [is] the governor among the nations.
Love GOD, Yisrael !!!!
ALL PRAISES BE TO THE MOST HIGH YIHOVAH,

ISAIAH 53RD CHAPTER
IS THIS CHAPTER ALL ABOUT JC
A METAPHOR FOR THE NATION OF ISRAEL?
January 1999 – The First Writing of this Message
November 2014 – The Revised Writing of this Message
Over the years, I have become the wiser from reading the history of the Israelites (The Hebrew Scriptures), and I PRAISE and THANK My GOD of Israel for bringing me to this knowledge and out of gross darkness. Words cannot express my appreciation for HIS continued Blessings upon me and for the enlightenment I receive regarding the history of my people, the Nation of Israel. Thus, I am sharing this information with others in order that they might learn the Truth about Isaiah 53rd Chapter.
Isaiah 53rd Chapter is one of many metaphors in the Scriptures where the CREATOR GOD makes comparisons. In Isaiah 53rd Chapter, the CREATOR GOD is comparing the afflictions of a man with the CURSES and afflictions that HE put upon the Nation of Israel for forsaking HIM and for turning to other gods. Righteousness is living GOD’s Book of the Law and is about serving HIM, and there is nothing in GOD’s Covenant that can include or can endorse the likes of JC and/or the Christian doctrine. On the contrary, the worship of this man-god is the punishment of Israel, and it has been proven to be so (Deu. 28:64). Presently, the Children of Israel are in exile serving the heathen and have been scattered from the land for approximately 2,400 years. JC could not have been a factor in our return to the Most High GOD of Israel, and the reason is that HE Commanded HIS last Prophet, Malachi, to remind us to “Remember ye the Law of Moses”. It is returning to this very LAW that our forefathers disobeyed that will enable us to once again live in the Land of Milk and Honey, the Land the CREATOR GOD gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Therefore, we cannot take the chance to worship JC but rather we must cleave to the JEALOUS GOD of Israel.
“If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt,
and consume you, after that he hath done you good.”
“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve,
him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.
He is thy praise, and he is thy God,
that hath done for thee these great and terrible things,
which thine eyes have seen.”
“And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands;
also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
“And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies,
I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly,
and to break my covenant with them:
for I am the LORD their God.”
My being an Israelite instinctively makes my charge to be that of exalting the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Magnanimous LAW. And I constantly remind the Holy ONE of Israel that HIS curses against HIS Chosen People were sure and most effective, especially the one, whereby, HE caused us to worship false gods, as punishment for forsaking HIM and to prove to us, hardhead Israelites, that HE is Our ONLY HELP and SAVIOR. However, now we need HIM to show HIS People and the world that the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is returning to take back HIS Universe, HIS Holy Land of Israel, and HIS Covenant People. And also that HE is returning to destroy the wicked and remove all false worship from HIS Earth. Now, let the True and Living GOD show HIMSELF and be Exalted from HIS Holy City Jerusalem again, and let HIS Covenant People serve HIM and boast of HIM to the Highest with PRAISE and Rejoicing.
GOD’s WORDS do not fail. HE Commands them, and we bring them to pass – whether the fulfillment is good or bad:
“And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.” Deuteronomy 28:64
“Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favor.” Jeremiah 16:13
So effective were GOD’s curses upon us (no “knowledge of God in the land” Hosea 4:1) in this regard, that now, even though many of us are sincere in seeking the All-Mighty GOD, some of us are not cognizant of what is actually GOD’s Truth and HIS Paths that lead to HIM and what continues to be HIS curse against us. And therefore, my plea and prayers to the Holy ONE of Israel are that HE reveal HIMSELF to HIS People and to the World just one more time so that all people will have an opportunity to know the truth and to choose HIS LAWS of Righteousness and that which GOD Loves. To think that the CREATOR GOD of Israel would end the keeping of HIS LAW (Romans 10:4) and replace it with the likes of belief in a man-god is outrageous, especially since the Children of Israel were scattered from the Land for worshipping images, idols, gods, sun, moon, etc., any and everything but their MAKER.
“And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice. And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it. Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,” Deuteronomy 4:12 - 16
Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;” Deuteronomy 7:9
“And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
“To keep the commandments of the Lord, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?” Deuteronomy 10:12,13
WEIGH THE SCRIPTURES AND PRAY FOR UNDERSTANDING
Therefore, My People, I beg of you to weigh all of the information found herewith and pray for an understanding, so that if you are indeed one of those truly seeking to know the All-Mighty GOD to do HIS Will that HE will lead and guide you to HIS Paths of Righteousness for HIS Holy Name’s Sake.
“And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” Isaiah 2:3
“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” Jeremiah 6:16
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:8
Obviously, the curse of being scattered throughout this ungodly World coupled with serving false gods has had a most negative effect on us, since our captors, being the head and we the tale, will influence many to assimilate and worship their way, for “every nation made gods of their own” (II Kings 17:29). The lands of the heathen where we are scattered are no exception but rather the rule.
IS ISAIAH 53RD CHAPTER ALL ABOUT JC
A METAPHOR FOR THE NATION OF ISRAEL?
Christians try to use Isaiah 53rd Chapter to support their belief that JC is mentioned in the “Old Testament” as suffering for those who believe in him so that they won’t have to suffer. Well, we know that’s not true because those who believe in him are suffering and dying like flies every day. So, if we want Truth, then nothing could be further from the Truth. Most if not all JC believers, profess him to be one of the components of the “Trinity.” If that is the case, shouldn’t the Prophet Isaiah have been more thorough in identifying him as a man-god in this 53rd Chapter? Of course, but obviously he isn’t, given all that we know about the CREATOR GOD being a Jealous GOD. And under these circumstances, there is no WORD of GOD that can substantiate the Christian belief that Isaiah 53rd Chapter foretells of the Christian man-god, suffering for the Sins of the World.
So, is Isaiah 53rd Chapter about JC, the Christian man-god?
Let us break down this chapter and delve into the Scriptures using undeniable evidence, GOD’s WORD, to manifest HIS Truth regarding this controversial dispute that is widely acclaimed to be a reference to the “Coming of JC” and his suffering for the Sins of the World.
I would like to first call attention to the fact that in no way can we compare the Most High GOD of Hosts to a man or with a man, and therefore, the following Scriptures alone disprove the Trinity claim:
“To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? Saith the Holy ONE.” Isaiah 40:25
“To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?” Isaiah 46:5
THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL WANTS ALL THE GLORY!!!
“…my glory will I not give to another…” Isaiah 42:8
“They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.”
“Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?
“The smith with the tongs both worketh in the coals, and fashioneth it with hammers, and worketh it with the strength of his arms: yea, he is hungry, and his strength faileth: The carpenter stretcheth out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; that it may remain in the house.” Isaiah 44:10,12,13
“And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou are my god.” Isaiah 44:17
Is this not exactly what has been done concerning JC? Is he not compared to GOD, especially if he is supposed to be one of the “Trinity”? If you don’t find him in homes and churches hanging on walls, then you can find him hanging on people’s necks but in gold, not wood. Awww, now we get the picture and the negative!!! How does the Most High GOD feel about this beautiful “man” that hangs on the walls in most Christian homes, churches, and other facilities???
“They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. And none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say…shall I make the residue thereof an abomination? Shall I fall down to the stock of a tree? He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?” Isaiah 44:18-20
“Therefore, son of man, speak unto the house of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Yet in this your fathers have blasphemed me, in that they have committed a trespass against me. Wherefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye polluted after the manner of your fathers? And commit ye whoredom after their abominations? For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day: and shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.” Please read Ezekiel 20:27-31
It appears that the Most High GOD of Hosts denounces all who seek to make HIM a part of this “Trinity” business and/or a part of JC. And if that’s not enough, then check out the following:
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Numbers 23:19
Regarding JC dying for the Sins of the World, it should also be noted that if GOD would not permit Moses to die for the Sins of Israel, HIS Chosen People, and “there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face,” then when did GOD give JC this permission to do so?
“Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin-; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou has written.
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.” Exodus 32:32,33 (See also Deuteronomy 9:14)
Thus, there is no way we can believe that Isaiah 53rd Chapter is speaking of JC dying for anyone’s sins, and the reason is that from out of GOD’s LAW, we learn that if you sin, you have to pay for your transgressions by being blotted out of GOD’s Book. And the Holy ONE of Israel most definitely has a book:
“The Lord will not spare him, but then the anger of the Lord and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the Lord shall blot out his name from under heaven.” Deuteronomy 29:20
And if JC truly existed at the time of Moses, as so many Christians seem to believe, and that he has been around since the beginning of time, then, why wasn’t their mention of his “Coming” to revoke the purpose of GOD’s Book, or mention of his dying for Israel’s Sins, or at least something to relate him to being the so-called “Saviour of the World or relate him to Isaiah 53rd Chapter?” Why wasn’t JC aware of GOD’s Book and the fact that the Most High GOD casts curses that do not fail upon HIS People who worship other gods. If JC existed, he did not do his homework. He just came on the scene without the correct script at the pen of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Paul.
“Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any.” Isaiah 44:8
And if that’s not enough, this should clarify everything!!!:
“Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.” Jeremiah 17:5
Hmmm. Actually, with the above Scriptures, alone, it is already proven that GOD is not a man, the “Trinity” is part of a fabricated plot to organize the false religion, “Christianity” (which has absolutely nothing to do with the teachings the All-Mighty GOD gave to HIS Prophet Moses for the Children of Israel), and that JC and no other “man” can die for the Sins of Israel.
The following Scripture is indisputable proof that Isaiah 53rd Chapter is not a reference to JC suffering for the Sins of the Nation of Israel and for the World, but rather it is the SEED of the Biblical Israelites suffering for the Sins of their forefathers who were worthy of the curses found in GOD’s Book. Please, note that the Most High GOD of Moses sometimes refers to the Nation of Israel in the singular just as HE does in Isaiah 53rd Chapter and in the following verses:
“For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. He found ‘him’ in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led ‘him’ about, he instructed ‘him,’ he kept ‘him’ as the apple of his eye. ”So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.” (Deuteronomy 32:9 -12).
Now, that we have established that the Nation of Israel can indeed be used as a singular pronoun, let’s embark on some serious Truth.
“Who hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?”
“Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.” Deuteronomy 33:4
“And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven. But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day.” Joshua 4:19,20
“In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.” Psalm 76:1
“He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalm 147:19,20
“But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.” Isaiah 41:8
“Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” Isaiah 43:10
“And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm…” Deuteronomy 5:15
“And know ye this day: for I speak not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of the Lord your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out arm, And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land;
“BUT your eyes have seen all the great acts of the Lord which he did.” Deuteronomy 11:2,3,7
“And the Lord brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders:” Deuteronomy 26:8
“Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old… Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?” Isaiah 51:9,10
OBVIOUSLY, IT IS THE ARM OF THE LORD THAT THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL WANTS REVEALED TO HIS PEOPLE.
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
“Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the Lord our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;” Deuteronomy 29:18
“Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.” Deuteronomy 28:48
“The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
“A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor show favour to the young:” Deuteronomy 28:49,50
“O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again. Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh. Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.” Psalm 60:1 - 3
“And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty. Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war. And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.” Isaiah 3:24-26
“Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 5:24
“Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return. I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle. Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD. How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?” Jeremiah 5 - 9
“Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the LORD our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the LORD.” Jeremiah 8:14

“Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god:…” Psalm 16:4
“…thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies. Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves. Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen. Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy wealth by their price. Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us. Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people. My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,” Psalm 44:9 - 14
“Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us. Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.” Psalm 44:13,14
“O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people? Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure. Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.” Psalm 80:4 - 6
“And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee.” Deuteronomy 28:37
“And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdomes of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.” Jeremiah 24:9
“Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years: therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries.
“Those that be near, and those that be far from thee, shall mock thee, which art infamous and much vexed.
“And I will scatter thee among the heathen, and disperse thee in the countries, and will consume thy filthiness out of thee.” Ezekiel 22:4,5,15
BECAUSE WE REJECTED OUR GOD AND WORSHIPPED FALSE gods, HE REJECTED AND FORSOOK HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, ISRAEL: Jeremiah 7:29-31
“As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief and wounds.” Jeremiah 6:7
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.”
“The Lord shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.” Deuteronomy 28:25
“And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them. Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day. Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us? And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods.” Deuteronomy 31:16 - 18
“When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them;” II Chronicles 6:26
“Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
“Why should ye be stricken any more? Ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
“From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.” Isaiah 1:4-6
“For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.” Isaiah 57:17
“O Lord, are not thine eyes upon the truth? Thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.” Jeremiah 5:3
IF JC REALLY DIED FOR THE SINS OF ISRAEL AND THE WORLD, FOLKS WOULDN’T BE SUFFERING SO PAINFULLY AS WE DO THIS VERY DAY AND HAVE BEEN ENDURING SINCE HIS SO-CALLED FIRST COMING. AND WOULDN’T IT MAKE MORE SENSE THAT IF JC DID IN FACT DIE FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD THAT THINGS WOULD BE BETTER RATHER THAN WORSE? JUST SEEMS LIKE IT SHOULD BE ANYWAY. ONE WOULD HOPE THAT HIS DYING FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD WOULD BE LIKE TAKING MEDICINE FOR A CANCER, AND THEN BEING CURED. BUT IT NEVER HAPPENED AND NEVER EVEN CAME CLOSE, AS THIS EARTH IS READY TO EXPLODE.
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.”
THE SEED OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL WAS TAKEN INTO CAPTIVITY BECAUSE OF THE TRANSGRESSIONS AND INIQUITIES OF THE BIBLICAL ISRAELITES:
HEAR THIS! Other passages in Isaiah that speak about the afflicted Israelites:
“Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.” Isaiah 1:5,6
“Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.” Lamentations 5:7
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.” Isaiah 64:6,7
“Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land. Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations. And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come. An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come. The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains. Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations. And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.” Ezekiel 7:2 – 9
“And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked. Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north: That all flesh may know that I the LORD have drawn forth my sword out of his sheath: it shall not return any more. Sigh therefore, thou son of man, with the breaking of thy loins; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes. And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Wherefore sighest thou? that thou shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord GOD.
“Cry and howl, son of man: for it shall be upon my people, it shall be upon all the princes of Israel: terrors by reason of the sword shall be upon my people: smite therefore upon thy thigh.” Ezekiel 21:3 – 7,12
“Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.” Isaiah 49:13
“I will mention the loving kindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour. In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old. But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.” Isaiah 63:7 – 10
Thus, Isaiah 53 is all about the affliction and the suffering of GOD’s Chosen People, the Nation of Israel whom HE scattered and cursed into the hands of their enemies for disobedience and for turning to false gods.
“For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.” Isaiah 59:12,13
“They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.” Jeremiah 11:10,11
“Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.” Lamentations 5:7
“He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”
“If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god; Shall not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart. Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.” Psalm 44:20-22
“Her adversaries are the chief, her enemies prosper; for the Lord hath afflicted her for the multitude of her transgressions: her children as gone into captivity before the enemy. And from the daughter of Zion all her beauty is departed: her princes are become like harts that find no pasture, and they are gone without strength before the pursuer.
“Jerusalem hath grievously sinned; therefore she is removed: all that honoured her despised her, because they have seen her nakedness: yea, she sigheth, and turneth backward.
”Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? Behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me, wherewith the Lord hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.” Lamentations 1:5,6,8,12
“He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.”
“For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her.” Lamentations 4:6
(Deuteronomy 28:15 – 68: The Curses upon the Children of Israel)
“And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.”
JC MADE HIS GRAVE WITH THE WICKED??? ACCORDING TO THE “NEW TESTAMENT,” HE WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE RISEN, NO? WHEN THE CURSE WAS MADE TO FALL UPON THE DESCENDANTS OF ISRAEL, THEY HAD NOT BEEN BORN, AND FOR THAT REASON, “THEY HAD DONE NO VIOLENCE”.
THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT IT WAS THE SCATTERED ISRAELITES WHO DIED FROM FAMINE, PESTILENCE, WAR, SICKNESS, AND AT THE HANDS OF THEIR ENEMIES IN GENTILE LANDS. ISRAELITES DIED AND FULFILLED THESE CURSES EVERY SINGLE DAY.
“And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.” Leviticus 26:38
“Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:
“Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
“And it shall come to pass, that as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to naught; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.” Deuteronomy 28:45,61,63
“Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.
“And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.” Deuteronomy 28:41,51
“In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.” Jeremiah 2:30
“I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.” Amos 4:10
“Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? But thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
“Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 28:9,10
“Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him…”
“Shall I not visit for these things? Saith the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:29,30
“The LORD hath accomplished his fury; he hath poured out his fierce anger, and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof.” Lamentations 4:11
“Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I the LORD have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them.” Ezekiel 5:13
“So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.
“That thou mayest remember, and be confounded and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 16:42,63
“Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”
“And the LORD saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein; But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them: Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.” Jeremiah 9:13 - 15
One thing is for sure, JC did NOT “divide the spoil with the strong.” According to the way the story went, those in power had him killed. And to add insult to injury, he never was made a king, didn’t have a kingdom, and didn’t establish one. Therefore, he had no power or authority to make judgments and/or decisions. And as far as dividing the spoil is concerned, what spoil and from where?
The Remnant that GOD will call (Joel 2:32) shall divide the spoil:
“The Lord said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.” Jeremiah 15:11
“Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.” Isaiah 60:9
After my comparing Isaiah 53rd with other pertinent Scriptures that prove the “man” in this Chapter is not JC but, rather, is the Nation of Israel, we must ask ourselves in any case, “Can JC’s so-called suffering, death on a cross” (that occurred over a period of a couple of days, if that) be compared to the suffering of the Nation of Israel that has taken place for literally thousands of years?” By no means, can we compare his assumed dragging of a cross and death a suffering that is supposed to save a World of people from their sins against the True and Living GOD. Let us be honest with ourselves and cease from being gullible and accepting of that which doesn’t even make sense much less is of GOD’s Truth.
For people to accept Isaiah 53rd Chapter as being a foretelling of the First Coming of the “New Testament” man-god called the Saviour of the World, they would also have to annul ALL GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments. And according to GOD’s Law, this will never happen:
“O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!” Deuteronomy 5:29
“Ye shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.” Deuteronomy 5:33
“… thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the Lord thy God, and to walk ever in his ways;…” Deuteronomy 19:9
“And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the Lord, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?” Deuteronomy 10:12,13
AND TO ENSURE THAT THE NATION OF ISRAEL, GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE, WILL KEEP HIS LAW IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, HE WILL PUT HIS LAWS IN THEIR HEARTS.
THIS IS THE “NEW COVENANT” THAT CHRISTIANITY AND THE “NEW TESTAMENT” HAVE COVETED FOR THEIR OWN AND ALTERED TO SUIT THE CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY. BUT SINCE GOD‘s WORD DOES NOT FAIL, THEIRS CERTAINLY WON’T FLY WITH HIM.
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Jeremiah 31:31-34
THIS IS WHAT THE TRUE AND LIVING GOD IS TALKING ABOUT!!! HE ESTABLISHED THESE LAWS FOR A PURPOSE AND HIS WISHES WILL BE FULFILLED! GOD’S LAW IS FOREVER AND BINDING ON HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE ISRAEL, AND THIS LAW IS OUR ONLY TICKET HOME (Deuteronomy 30th Chapter).
Given the above Scripture, no one and no organized religion has the authority or the right to nullify the Laws, Statutes, and Judgments of the Most High GOD of Israel. Christianity, indeed, teaches that “grace” replaced GOD’s “LAW.” However, there is absolutely no truth to this creed as far as GOD’s Ordinances and Precepts are concerned. This notion to change GOD’s LAW was devised by religious enthusiasts eager to establish a religion that embraced Gentiles just as the CREATOR GOD of Israel embraced Israelites. Of a surety, since the Book of Genesis, there has never been such a concept of one dying for the sins of others, or the GOD of Israel exempting any Israelite or Stranger from keeping HIS Laws (Exodus 12:49). Therefore, it is time for all people seeking to follow the true and living GOD, the All-Mighty GOD that created the Heavens and the Earth, to realize the Truth and do what’s necessary to find favor with this loving and dreadful GOD. Otherwise, be prepared to face HIM in the day of the Lord’s Wrath upon this globe.
Oh and by the way, nor is Isaiah 7:14 a reference to the “Coming of JC”. In order to better understand this chapter you must first realize that this “virgin” who conceived did so in the days of Ahaz, king of Judah. You can also read about this event in II Kings 16th Chapter which further proves that Isaiah 7:14 has nothing whatsoever to do with JC. I realize that this is quite a lengthy document on Isaiah 53rd Chapter, but it needed to be written and to be thorough in order for Christians and believers in JC and the “New Testament,” to start contemplating and researching this organized religion that defies all that the True and Living GOD represents. Therefore, please distinguish between what is man’s doctrine and what are GOD’s Ways and HIS Righteousness and make the decision to follow GOD’s TRUTH.
May My GOD, the GOD of Israel, the GOD in whom I trust, hope, and believe with all my heart, reveal HIS Truths to all those who seek to follow HIM in sincerity. May the Seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob rise up and PRAISE the GOD of Hosts, the CREATOR of the Universe who alone is to be Glorified. And may the Holy ONE of Israel and HIS Holy Name be Exalted and Praised to the Highest, forever and ever by all peoples on the face of this Earth. Blessed be the GOD of Abraham and Moses and blessed be HIS Holy Name forever and ever.
When people will research, read, and analyze the facts, especially what Thus Saith the LORD, then they will understand that the “New Testament” has completely overturned and nullified GOD’s Book of the Law – without cause, without reason, and without GOD’s endorsement. There is no Truth to the Christian theology and the JC man-god. GOD’s Firstborn are the Nation of Israel – the People HE Chose for HIMSELF and with whom HE made an Everlasting Covenant.
Even if Isaiah 53rd were about JC, that could not change the afflictions that the GOD of Israel rendered upon the Children of Israel for their disobedience and abominations against HIM.
The invention of JC was GOD’s means to punish HIS stiffnecked People and cause them to realize, as HE has done, that HE is GOD, SAVIOR, and HELP in times of trouble, and there is NONE ELSE BESIDE HIM! And if HE is the GOD that has brought all these curses upon us, then, OBVIOUSLY, we will need HIM to REDEEM us out of them. Thus, it would be in vain to look to JC for anything! One must understand that the GOD of Israel’s Plan is to be EXALTED and to have every knee bow to HIM. The worship of JC would interfere with GOD’s EXALTATION and the GLORY due to HIM. For, as it is written, the Nation of Israel will show forth GOD’s PRAISE!
“Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her,
that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned:
for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.”
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.”
“For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.”
“O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
behold, I will lay thy
stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations
And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.
And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.”
Isaiah 54:11 - 14
“The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee;
and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet;
and they shall call thee,
The city of the Lord, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.”
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace,
and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me,
and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me,
and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity,
and I will gather you from all the nations,
and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD;
and I will bring you again into the place
whence I caused you to be carried away captive…
Jeremiah 30:11 – 15
“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes,
and ye shall keep my
judgments, and do them.
And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers;
and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
“Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities
I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the
wastes shall be builded.
And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden;
and the waste and
desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
Then the heathen that are left round about you
shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate:
I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel,
to do it for them; I
will increase them with men like a flock.
As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts;
so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men:
and they shall know that I am the LORD.”
Ezekiel 36:28,33 – 38
“Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them;
it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them,
and multiply them, and
will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God,
and they shall be my
And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel,
when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.”
Ezekiel 37:26 - 28
“I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph,
and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them:
and they shall be as though I had not cast them off:
for I am the LORD their
God, and will hear them.
“ And I will strengthen them in the LORD;
and they shall walk up and down in his name, saith the LORD.”
“Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say,
He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
“And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up,
and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict;
so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the LORD.”
Halleluyah, Halleluyah, Halleluyah!
“If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers,
with their trespass which they trespassed against me,
and that also they have
walked contrary unto me;
And that I also have walked contrary unto them,
and have brought them into the land of their enemies;
if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled,
and they then accept of
the punishment of their iniquity:
Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac,
and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember;
and I will remember the land.”
Leviticus 26:40 - 42
FEAR THE LORD AND KEEP ALL HIS LAWS, STATUTES, AND JUDGMENTS!
THE SOAPBOX SPEAKS:
As most Israelites know or should know, it is prophesied that ONLY a REMNANT is destined to return. And given what I’ve been learning about my people in GOD’s Land, I can well understand why. The abominations of Israelites in the Land of GOD are astounding. The Holy ONE has spoken about Israelites profaning HIS Holy Name, and for sure, some of us have done so and without shame and certainly without guilt. Thus, with all my heart I pray that the GOD of Israel will bring TRUTH and sincerity to HIS Holy Name and remove all the wicked from HIS Holy Land.
“For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea,
yet a remnant of them shall return:
the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.”
We have been given another chance to return to the Land of our forefathers, and some return with wickedness heading the list of their agendas. Have they forgotten that we are to return to the GOD of Israel with our whole heart and soul? Do they not believe that we are supposed to FEAR the GOD of Israel and live according to HIS Righteous Book of the Law? Do they not realize that we are living in the times of GOD’s Wrath upon this world of Sodom and Gomorrah?
I can well understand why Our GOD of Israel wants us going into the Wilderness before trekking that highway home.
“And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD. And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.” Ezekiel 20:34 - 38
“And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.” Isaiah 11:16
“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.” Isaiah 35:8
“The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” Isaiah 40:3
“Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.” Jeremiah 31:21
Those of us who do hope to go into the Wilderness will be glad that the GOD of Israel will deal with the rebels and will not allow them to enter the Land of Israel to influence and perpetuate their transgressions against the Holy ONE.
When a Sister in Israel saw the need to post a video on Facebook about child sexual abuse in the Israelite community, how to recognize it, and how to prevent it, then surely you can realize the gravity of the wickedness that prevails among the Israelites who have returned. Sadly, this Sister’s son is one of the children made a victim by a sexual abuser.
The recent deaths in the Israelite community in Israel should serve as warnings from the Holy ONE of Israel that HE is taking steps to end this evil that persists in HIS Land. Truly we are most certainly the SEED of Jacob, as we are not only like our asinine Hebrew forebears (who had everything and whatever else they wanted while in control of the Land), but we are also just as dangerously stupid. The Ben Ammi Camp is taught now that they will live forever. I know better.
After all the witchcraft that went on (when I was there), after all the belief in and worship of Ben Ammi, after all the rejection of GOD’s LAW and acceptance of the false teachings of Ben Ammi, after all the dead babies and children, after all the separations of wives from their husbands, after all the prostitution, and after all the unhappiness, now, some of the Israelites have chosen Asiel to again lead another group of Israelites in the Land. Have Israelites chosen to forget what GOD Commanded at the mouth of HIS Prophet Ezekiel regarding sinning against HIM? The unrighteous shall pay the consequences for their sins. And for sure Asiel is full of them!!!
“The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.” Ezekiel 18:20 - 24
Asiel has obviously forgotten about his “Open Letter to Ben Ammi”, wherein, he admits to being complicit with Ben Ammi in committing unrighteousness right along with him. In this letter he claims that he and those who went to Israel to join with the group did so to “add our hands to the work already in progress and to join in the community that had begun.” Did he ever lie, and he and Shaleakh did anything but create peace in the community. In 1971 (when I first met Asiel) the Israelites in the Land were told that some “Brothers were coming who really knew how to take care of business”. And these words will stay with me forever. After Asiel and Shaleakh and a few other Brothers arrived in Israel, it wasn’t long after, that Ben Ammi was called JC and the Messiah. That was when I left the group. Nevertheless, Asiel was with the Camp all while Ben Ammi had the Camp calling him “saviour” and while the Israelites experienced all the Hell he listed in his “Open Letter to Ben Ammi”. And he deludes himself if he thinks GOD will allow him to get away with what he and Ben Ammi have done.
But now, Asiel wants folks to believe that he is so sorry and that GOD has forgiven him, and also that the Ben Ammi Camp is lying on him. He knows that he is just as guilty as Ben Ammi, and he, too, will feel the brunt of GOD’s Wrath for the GOD of Israel is not going to tolerate sin and immorality in HIS Land. The GOD of Israel does not always act immediately to exercise HIS Judgment, but when HE does, there is no question about it. Asiel boasts of his title and of what he says are his accomplishments, and that is exactly his downfall. He gives much glory to himself, and now he can’t deal with a tumbled pedestal. And of a Truth, given what he has written in his “Open Letter to Ben Ammi“, the GOD of Israel was never with him. The GOD of Israel has made Asiel expose himself and Ben Ammi, as to how they have destroyed so many lives. The Holy ONE has proven to us that there will be no prosperity and or SALVATION if we do not embrace HIS Book of the Law in Truth whether in Israel, outside of Israel, in a Congregation or not, our allegiance must be to Our Most High GOD of Israel, Our ONLY SAVIOR!
Israelites who choose these corrupt leaders to head their congregations are also foolish. If Israelites would not support these so-called “priests” and “princes” and would deny them positions to lead and teach in their groups, then that would put an end to unrighteous leadership. I have even heard a “priest” in Israel give honor to Asiel. Doesn’t this “priest” know that it is given to the Priests of Israel to teach GOD’s LAW? For what does he need Asiel – a man who with Ben Ammi had the audacity to speak from the “New Testament”? Even Cohane Michael Ben Levi of Guyana consorted with Ben Ammi and proclaimed him to be the “Anointed Messianic Leader of the Kingdom of God” in his book entitled Israelites and Jews. What is wrong with Israelites? When did the GOD of Israel have a Minister of HIS involved with Messianic stuff? Isn’t GOD’s Way of Life all about HIM, all that we need, and all that HE has required of us? Of course it is, so why are GOD’s Chosen gone mad with titles and false worship and using GOD’s Holy Name in vain?
Why can’t we just strive to discern between what’s right and what’s wrong and read GOD’s LAW and just DO IT?! Why do we even need a teacher??? And why do we need to waste time debating what’s written? There is no time for this foolishness. And I am tired of hearing Brothers say that one must speak Hebrew for a clear understanding of what’s written. In Truth the fact that they make such a false statement proves they know nothing about the CREATOR GOD and how it is that HE is the ONE that opens people’s eyes to HIS Ways of Righteousness. “GOD’s HAND is not shortened”. Just as HE stopped sending visions to HIS Prophets, HE can start sending them again. All we have to do is thirst for knowledge about the GOD of Israel, and HE without fail will open the eyes of those who genuinely seek HIM. If we aren’t trying to be a hot dog with our titles, we try to be one by way of the use of the “Hebrew” language. BIG DEAL, you speak Hebrew; now go and learn GOD’s LAW because that is what GOD has required of us (Deu. 10:12,13)! They should know that nothing stands out and attracts more attention like GOD’s LAW – NOTHING; for it is a LIGHT of profound wisdom for those who walk in darkness, and it is even protection!
“For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?” Deuteronomy 4:7,8
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.” Psalm 111:10
“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.” Psalm 19:7 – 11
“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
Our GOD of Israel never said learn today’s adulterated/hybrid Hebrew, but HE did say that HE would give us a “pure language” (Zeph. 3:9). And you can believe that it won’t happen until Our GOD of Israel has cleansed us first.
Upon our return and after our cleansing, the GOD of Israel will choose HIS own Priests, Pastors, and Judges for the Remnant of Israel. Therefore, it behooves Brothers and Sisters to realize that our future is in GOD’s HANDS, and HE is picking and choosing those who meet HIS criteria, i.e., those who have HIS Book of the Law in their hearts. And if people think the titles of prince, priest, Moreh, and prophet will give them a shoe-in into GOD’s Kingdom, they can’t be more wrong. The GOD of Israel did not give Brothers and Sisters these titles, Brothers and Sisters decided upon what they desired to be called, and so it is. The tragedy is that they wear these titles and profane GOD’s Holy Name with all manner of abominations. It doesn’t get any worse than this.
“If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.” Deuteronomy 30:10 - 14
These leaders who follow Ben Ammi, Asiel, and Cohane Michael fulfill GOD’s WORD, and it is so obviously shameful because initially they might have had good intentions. But for the love of grand standing, they have failed the GOD of Israel and have deceived GOD’s Chosen! Indeed, they speak smooth talk, but these men and those who follow them have gone mad.
“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;” Isaiah 44:24,25
“Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?” Isaiah 29:13 - 15
“For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.” Isaiah 9:16
The following passage would apply to anyone who takes it upon him/herself to lead GOD’s People. Reason being, when you touch GOD’s Beloved, know what you are doing, and know that you are like a Watchman and you must warn and instruct Israelites in GOD’s TRUTH and ONLY in HIS TRUTH or pay the consequences, as these men have done, and even as some have already done with their lives.
“The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.” Jeremiah 23:20 - 22
Wake up, Israelites, and stop being force-fed anything outside of GOD’s Book of the Law, for GOD’s LAW is our only ticket back to our heritage and for HIS SAVATION!
It is so disheartening when we know that Israelites have again entered back into the Land and have not walked in GOD’s Way of Life. And it is frightening to know that GOD will execute HIS Judgments on the vile Israelites and the deceptive and vicious European “Jews” who have taken HIS Land for their own to do with it as they choose. I would not be surprised if the Most High GOD ignited that Dimona Nuclear Site for all the transgression, false worship, vice, murder, and immorality that thrives in HIS Land of Milk and Honey. As we know, GOD removed the Canaanites from the Land for their sins and wickedness, and regrettably HE also removed our Israelite forefathers for the same reasons.
I have often wondered if and how the GOD of Israel would spare the Israelites in the Land when HE executes HIS Wrath upon those who have usurped HIS Land. Now, I no longer wonder because many of them will fall with the ruthless Israelis who also couldn’t care less about the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Book of the Law. And by the way, that would include all the Brothers, so-called princes, and so-called priests in the Ben Ammi Camp and outside this camp who are associated with him.
I heard a woman in the Middle East on Press TV say that she did not care who ruled her land, and that she just wanted to live in peace. Well, that can only happen when the CREATOR GOD of Abraham brings HIS Peace to fruition. And who has the CREATOR Chosen to Represent HIM? - HIS Chosen-Covenant People. Too many people of the world are suffering and waiting for the end to this Hell on Earth so they can enjoy life. And the people to whom it is given to reveal GOD’s Truth are behaving like fools and are misrepresenting the Righteous and Just GOD. This insanity has got to stop!
The sooner Our GOD of Israel eliminates wickedness from among us (the Israelite Nation), the sooner sincere Israelites can be about gathering together to seek and learn about the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Ways of Righteousness and give PRAISE to HIS Holy Name. These are the ones who will make-up the Righteous Remnant that GOD will Call.
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” Joel 2:32
The GOD of Israel reads our hearts very well, and HE knows who is playing games and who is serious about living according to HIS Righteous Book of the Law and who wants to RETURN to serve and worship HIM in Righteousness. And HIS SALVATION will be for them, that Righteous Remnant that will take that highway home to show forth the PRAISES of the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, which, by the way, is the very reason we were Chosen and Formed.
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.” Isaiah 43:21
I cannot stress enough that we are in the last days, the time of Jacob’s Troubles, the time when Israel will be gathered, and unfortunately in a time when Brothers and probably some Sisters are calling attention to themselves and not to GOD’s LAW. Forget about anything that is not written for us to do in this Book of the Law. We should be wise enough to stand on our own two feet and so strong and encouraged in GOD’s LAW to not allow anyone to entice us over to their Camp to join in their unrighteousness.
“Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ask ye now among the heathen, who hath heard such things: the virgin of Israel hath done a very horrible thing. Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon which cometh from the rock of the field? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from another place be forsaken? Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;” Jeremiah 18:13 – 15
I am jealous for My GOD of Israel and ashamed of my wicked people. And I pray that the GOD of Israel will ACT swiftly, so that the sins of the evil will have no bearing on those who truly seek to follow the GOD of Israel.
When Brothers and Sisters are doing right by the GOD of Israel, GOD makes it known to them, and there is no doubt about HIS HAND in the matter. And if people choose to take the wrong path, then just as GOD showed King Saul that HE was not with him, HE will also let folks know the same by HIS silence and by unanswered prayers.
Let the GOD of Israel make haste to execute HIS Judgments upon the wicked, take back HIS Universe, re-establish the Nation of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake, and fulfill all HIS Promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And let the Righteous Remnant RETURN and fulfill prophecy!
Father of Abraham, make haste to take back your Universe for mankind has wreaked havoc on your Good Earth and in your Holy Land.

FOR THE LOVE OF SELF-SERVING INTERESTS
It cost the British $1.8 billion bucks to ready a probe to land on a “fast moving” comet, which it did, only to land one day and be unproductive the next. Actually, the last I heard, its battery ran out. That money could have helped to feed the poor, clean up the Ghettos, and construct a state-of-the-art school for the impoverished. The more time that passes, the more it is evident that the CREATOR is not with the Rulers of this World. Nothing positive is happening in their favor, and they are killing people mercilessly with their deadly weapons or with their race hatred as they watch and cause the demise of helpless groups and nations.
Don’t be surprised if the CREATOR conveniently sends a comet to Earth, so people can study it at a lesser expense and for a greater hands-on opportunity for study. Actually, I anticipate it. However, things just might not take place as they would like.
POINTING THE FINGER
The finger pointing of the US and UN needs to stop before it falls off. How does the saying go, “Pointing the finger at someone means that’s two in your face”; something like that, anyway. I have heard the US and the UN speak against North Korea, Russia, and the Palestinians for committing violence and human rights violations. OMG!!! Did the US forget what it did to Iraq? And can the US and the UN see the human rights violations taking place every single day in the Palestinian apartheid territory? And for the atrocities committed against the Palestinians the US rewards Israelis $10 bil. every year.
This US razed Iraq and bombed it day and night for months scaring the Hell out of people, children especially, on trumped up charges that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The US government listened to the Israelis and now look who is suffering: the Iraqi peoples, the Israelis because they still live in fear that the Iraqis will join with others and come up against them, and the US because now Iraq is the worst thorn in their eyes ever. So much for George W’s “Shock and Awe” in his face! This is but the beginning of the end, and it won’t be long before the CREATOR will terminate the reign of nations that have caused chaos and confusion, division, hatred, and acute suffering on HIS Earth.

“Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses;
for they have been ever of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions:
according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.”
“And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted,
that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more:
he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry;
when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.”
“For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.”
“Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together:
who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time?
have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour;
there is none beside me.
Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness,
and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue
Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength:
even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him
shall be ashamed.
In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.”
Isaiah 45:21 - 25
READING FOR THE SOUL:
Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry,
give ear unto my prayer
“Hear the right, O
LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that
goeth not out of feigned lips.
Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
Thou has proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou has tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.”
Psalm Seventeenth Chapter
that day is great, so that none is like it:
it is even the time of Jacob's trouble
“The word that came
to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.
For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.
For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:
But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous.
There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines.
All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased.
Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee.
Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey.
For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob's tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof.
And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.
And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.
The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.”
Jeremiah Thirtieth Chapter
Make me to go in the path of thy commandments;
for therein do I delight
“] Blessed are the undefiled
in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.
Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.
Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.
Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.
Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.
My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.
I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.
Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.
I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.
I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.
I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.
Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.
Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.
Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.
Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.
Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.
So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.
And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law.”
Psalm One hundred nineteenth Chapter, verses one to fifty-one

Many states have lotteries, like the Powerball and Mega Millions. These lotteries raise funds for dedicated purposes like education or roads. Let's have a federal lottery, a National Jubilee Lottery, dedicated to providing reparations to the descendants of slaves!
All U.S. citizens 13 years and older may sign this petition. Teachers: feel free to use this petition in their classes for lesson planning regarding political activism. Adult citizens will also be encouraged to register to vote.
Background for the Petition: The Reparations Labor Union is petitioning Members of the United States House of Representatives, the United States Senate, and President Barack Obama. The year 2019 marks the 400th anniversary of America's involvement in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. America should immediately enact voluntary reparations in order to turn a grievous anniversary into a celebration of truth, correction, and reconciliation.
We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to repair the breach of racism that continues to divide the United States: In addition to Congress apologizing for slavery, as was done in 2008 and 2009, Congress should also pave the way for voluntary reparations to be paid to the descendants of those captured during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. A national Jubilee Lottery can generate the funds to pay reparations without increasing taxes or the national deficit.

President Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday
This post has been updated.
President Obama said in a video that he will announce Thursday that he will use his executive authority to expand temporary protections to millions of undocumented immigrants. Obama will travel to Las Vegas on the heels of that announcement to rally support for his initiative on Friday.
"Tomorrow night I'm going tobe announcing here from the White House some steps I can take to start fixing our broken immigration system," Obama said in a video posted on Facebook Wednesday afternoon.
Congress will receive official details on the move Thursday, according to a senior Democratic Party official.
"Everybody agrees that our immigration system is broken. Unfortunately Washington has allowed the problem to fester for too long," Obama said. "So what' I'm going to be laying out is the things I can do with my lawful authority as president to make the system work better even as I continue to work with Congress and encourage them to get a bipartisan, comprehensive bill that can solve the entire problem.
Obama said he will travel to Del Sol High School in Las Vegas Friday.
Advocates began readying events to promote the administration’s immigration policy.
“We hear there will be a prime time Thursday evening announcement (to preview) and full unveiling in Vegas on Friday,” immigration advocate Dawn Le told other activists in an e-mail, which was later inadvertently sent to a group of reporters Wednesday morning. “Can folks begin to work and plan watch parties for Thursday and/or Friday? Unclear whether Thursday night content will be what is "celebratory," but Friday will be where we need a lot of energy guaranteed.”
Africans and their obsession with other people's religion
Africans and their obsession with other people's religion
by Cheryl Sanchez
Will this fatal attraction to other’s people religion
spell final destruction of African Communities worldwide?
In this essay, the writer will attempt to do three things. 1) To provide evidence to Africans for the purpose of questioning their own ”obsessive attitude towards Christianity and Islam. 2) To show a link between under-development and religious ideas. 3) To question whether these aforementioned religions have contributed to the stagnation of Pan-Africanism, anti-African attitude and disunity amongst Africans? The writer will be calling on Africans worldwide to reject the gods and religions of the colonial masters, as a matter of urgency. Amazingly, the Europeans have ditched those gods, which were used to serve their capitalist expansionists “needs”. They now have” new gods” in form of the markets, the stock exchanges, multi-national companies and football, which have edges out the” old gods” to the back burners. On would be hard-pressed to see a church in Europe in any European city packed with European punters. This obsessive attraction may have much do with a learnt behaviour taught in childhood, by parents.
In the first paragraph, I have the term Africans to refer to people who are normally referred to as “black people”. For me, black is a colour and not, an ethnicity. Black is a very limited adjective and is only ever used to describe African peoples. Chinese, Korean and Japanese are never ever described as yellow people. It is absolutely unnecessary to put black in front of the words-Caribbean/America and British. The 80 million Africans living outside of the African continent, courtesy of the slave trades-West and East remain Africans.
When I use the term Christianity, I am including the older as well as the newer non-conformist so called-”Black” churches. A “black church” refers to a church where the majority of churchgoers are either Africans from the continent or of African descent. It does not refer to the ideology preached within these buildings. It is the same old message from a dodgy ancient history book about ancient people’s from a far off continent. The writer also acknowledges and is aware of the existence of African Christians in the Lower Nile/Ethiopia area (Coptic Christians). Also, Africans in the rest of Africa had religions similar in outlook and practices as the Chinese, Japanese and Native Americans eg ancestor worship as opposed to Jesus and Allah worshipping.
What does history
tell us about the slave and colonial masters and their version of Christianity?
The history books covering the period book between 1700-1900 and, one could discover how religion-especially Christianity and Islam came to be introduced to Africans and for what purpose religions were used. It was introduced to Africans during the slave trades(West and East). Initially, part of the enslaving process, after capturing Africans was to impart religion to the “savages”. The Europeans introduced Christianity and, the Arabs introduced Islam. Another part of the enslaving process was to deculturise people by penalising Africans for their home grown practices. One could see 2 distinct camps being formed amongst African people’s. During the that period 1700-onwards, the Bible was the only authority believed and used back then ,until the rise of science came about in Europe. Can you imagine how lucky the ruling classes back in Europe felt, when they saw the potential of the bible, as a tool to enslave peoples, to further the mercantile mode of capitalism.
Historical accounts have given a plethora of evidence to show that, the slave masters both European and Arab practised what they believed to be the “truth” from the Bible and from the Koran. They also provide in-depth accounts of the scale of brutality, torture, theft, terrorism, murder unleashed on unsuspecting and trusting Africans. Both Islamic and christian traders, adventurers, priests, investors and criminals armed with the bible and the Koran and “gifts” to achieve their goal of slavery, colonialism and the development of Europe and the under-development of Africa. Missionaries were used to soften up the Africans, on behalf of the ruling classes, both on the African continent. In the Americas- religion was tolerated by the master because, they saw the potential of these ideas to keep the slaves ”cheerful”
Is any wonder why slave masters opposed the abolition ideas and literacy amongst the slaves, when the bible supports slavery, subservience, discrimination of all types including gender, ethnicity and non believers and all of the above?
Christianity, capitalism and cruelty in Africa.
The main reason for expanding the missionary outreach work in Africa was to make it easier for the capitalists both state and individuals arriving in Africa, intent on making their fortunes and fortunes they did make eg Cecil Rhodes- and the Royal South African Company, which eventually became involved in diamond mining. The Jewish family who was invited to South-Africa back in 1890’s and now rules the diamond world-The Oppenheimers in South-Africa. In order to make personal fortunes, the state officers on the ground had to terrorise many Africans, forcefully move them from their land, steal and impound their cattle(Money), force them to leave their land and their families, separate families and turn them into waged slaves/paid labourers.
Zimbabwean writer M. Gazi (2004) provides evidence of how the state gave land to returning soldiers from both European wars in both Zimbabwe and Kenya. Afterwards, law were enacted to give European owners of land a semblance of legality. D. Anderson( 2005) gives similar accounts of what was done in the 1950’s to various ethnic groups in Kenya, in order to re-settle Europeans in best part of Kenya-The Rift Valley/Happy Valley areas. The methods /tactics were the same enlist collaborators, beat or incarcerate those dared fight back, label them “terrorists”, exclude them from the political process and use the colonial orientated education as a means of causing disunity.
T. Pakenham (1992) and other writers provided evidences about the African Holocausts both in South West Africa (German) now modern day Namibia. The Hereroes,Namas were nearly wiped out in German occupied SWA. Their methods used included starvation, concentration camps, hard labour, splitting up families, land grabbing, killing livestock. Some recent estimates put a figure of approximately 3,000.000 Hereroes and Namas were killed During all these atrocities the missionaries just continued their missionary field work as normal. This action shows that, they agreed with the colonials anti-African destructive policies totally. Lands which were stolen from the Africans in SAW were passed unto German nationals for the purpose of winemaking. Most of them like their neighbouring Boer/Afrikaneers share the same religion-Calvinism.
A. Hochschild (1998) produced a page by page account on how another unknown European monarch of a newly formed country Belgium in 1937-the size of Jamaica became mega rich from Congo’s rubber. The writer itemised the following methods used to coerce Congolese to work.. The state officers working for the King used murder, starvation, exhaustion, exposure to the elements, disease and cutting of the hands. Women were imprisoned and denied food and water until their husband or male relatives brought the right quota of rubber. Leopold did not have much money to invest in such a large area of Africa so, he looked to rich Americans from both Jewish and Christian backgrounds to invest in his African moneymaking schemes in The Congo.
Leopold was able to court people like Senator Nelson Aldrich-Rhode Island, John Pierpont Morgan-financier and father in law of John D Rockefeller jr and the Guggenheims-owners of the Guggenheims Museum in NY, Bernard Bauch and Financier Thomas Ryan. Leopold also used bribery by stealing Congolese artifacts, which he then gave to the American natural History Museum. Off course, when the time came for Leopold to declare as the “independent Free state of Congo”, he could depend on the USA through his investors, to recognise this scam. Hochschild says “millions of Congolese died within 5 years of Belgium colonisation” died. Today, in DRC-45,000 die a month.
The Islamic method then and up to the present is till enslavement. Eastern Slave trade where many peoples from modern day Malawi,. Mozambique and Tanzania were taken as slaves to work on plantations. Some were used as guards in harems and, as servants of the wealthy Arabs. The enslaved Africans of the east took on islam, some had their testicles cut off if they worked in the harems. Off course-skin tone was used as a criteria to enslave people. So, people with the most melanin were “natural slaves”. A practise still practised in northern Africa especially in Mauritania and Sudan. See Campaign of Terror: State sponsored Repression of Africans, which was the outcome of a 3 reports beginning in 1990-1993. The “the weak state of Mauritania is using old colonial methods to keep Africans in their powerless state eg detentions, sexual harassment, theft of possessions. Confiscation of legal documents, forcible expulsions and massacres.
Islamic Hausas in northern Nigeria have been placated for years since 1967 with a larger share on the national income of Nigeria-I suspect this is done, due to larger numbers of this ethnic group within the Nigerian army. During the Biafra War for Independence from Nigeria in 1967, Hausa took the opportunity to murder thousands of their christian neighbours-The Igbos. What made or still make the Hausas turn on the Ibos then and now in the northern Nigeria? It is as if they have to remind the Ibos that,” they are Moslems and they are in charge of the means of coercion-the army” It as if the Nigerian state is unwilling to practice social justice and treat people fairly. It as if the religious obsessions within Nigerian societies almost de-humanise or de-sensitise them from acting against man made social and economic inequalities. So, whilst the natural resources-oil is located in the eastern and southern parts of Nigeria- it is the north which disproportionately benefits from the south and eastern oil income.
And the Response of
Africans Worldwide to the plethora of anti-hueman
Collectively, nationally and internationally-Africans have more or less tended to collude with both Christians and Islamic slave and colonial masters, by accepting and maintaining the master’s left-over. They provide a plethora of excuses-excusing the ideology, whilst blaming the few powerless, misguided individuals. By disconnecting the limitations or shortcomings of the ideology, they avoid questioning or criticising the religion. This enables them to retain practices and observances to the letter. There is a huge gap between beliefs and everyday practice. This a reflection that, many of the religious dictums are not practical for the modern societies. They are unachievable by most believers. Most religious zealots maybe afraid to accept the reality of t6he many inability to answer major questions facing mankind or many complex problems faced, by the majority of mankind eg the environment ,food production, the international division of labour etc.. On top of which many poor Islamic Africans save their hard earned money to attend the Haj to Mecca, which becomes quite risky journey for the well melanated Africans, as they are often captured upon arriving in Saudi-Arabia. The darker their hue-the more likely they can be captured to be enslaved by their rich Saudi Islamic Saudi “brothers”. All in the name of Allah- Segal R (1995).
Some Africans have colluded with the local political and capitalist classes who are managed by their European handlers. This has had fatal outcomes and a loss of political leadership with the murders of Patrice Lumumba in 1961, Dr. Walter Rodney in 1970’s, Thomas Sankara in 1987, Dr Eduardo Mondlane and the suspicious death of Machel Samora and the many members of the Black Panther Movement who are gunned down. Some collaborators help overthrow their leaders, to assist their ex-colonial master like what happened with Nkrumah. Kwame Ture was not permitted to return to Trinidad, during the 70’s as he was seen as a person non-gratia for his radical Pan-Africanist views. The long imprisonment of Mangaliso Sobwuke in South-Africa and the murder of Bantu Biko in 1977. Amilcar Cabral
Those fervent African catholic church goers are not even aware that, catholic Italian scientist Dr Anthony Gallo has registered himself as co-creator of HIV virus by applying for the patent certificate. This information is widely available on the internet site www.boydgraves.com. They failed to noticed that, many Christians in Rwanda from both ethnic groups took part in the killing or as they called the acts-Interwehamwe_”We kill together”. Pastors often help by using their authority to get greater numbers of people into church for faster extermination. We shall never know with accuracy how many Africans have been killed the Biafra War, the Rwanda -the Inter ethnic proxy war and the continuing war in DRC nor in the Proxy war in Sierra Leone-over ownerships of the diamonds. The so-called army men have been educated in faith schools-catholic or Church of England. They kill indiscriminately, on behalf of the west and for power to rule ,not necessarily to lead.
The obsession with both organised and non-conformist have actually stood in the way of transforming us from slaves to people. As a result-we still behave like slaves in the midst of modern, complicated, capitalist societies in the UK, USA/Europe and Canada. Our communities are reproducing many sport people, pastors and singers and musician but very low figures in the sciences and other disciplines and or professions, which means we are not as prepared to handle problems within these societies, as other ethnic groups. The consequences of the low production of business people, professionals and thinkers and scientist leaves the door open for illiterate pastors, preachers and politicians to come in and steal their minds, hearts and their MONEY!
Hill. N (1967) spoke of 5 persistent “evils” in most societies but more obvious in under-developed societies. They are poverty, fear, ignorance, illiteracy and hopelessness. The writer would like to add a few more to his list of five evils. They are organised religions (not ancestor worship or eastern religious philosophy), wastage of time, money and opportunities, intolerance, skin/colour discrimination, which occurs between different African ethnicities. This skin/colour discrimination or prejudice has been described as pigmentocracy. Fran Fanon(1967) also has another evil to add to the ever-growing list of evils. He said that “the national city based bourgeoisie is also a persistent menace/evil”- The national middle classes and the religious leaders have been standing in the way or progress and development in the many “proxy , independent states Africa states”London /Modern Examples of religion doing harm and not good!
Two recent events have confirmed the deadly consequences of the unhealthy obsession with organised religions. The killing of Victoria Climbie at the hands of her christian “looney aunt and the boyfriend, in 1999. The couple were regular attenders of those noisy non -conformist “African” churches. Apparently, the couple complained of the child’s behaviour to the pastor, who confirmed that, the 8-year old girl was demonised or possible a “witch”. Young Victoria-who was born in Cote D’Ivoire was sent her to have a “better life” Instead this young child was tortured to death in a house in north London by 2 Christians. Many Africans blamed Social Services or some accused the lady of being a “barbaric African” .Some accepted that, the couple may have “misinterpreted the bible”. Nobody from the African community publicly criticised the region or the system of beliefs of the couple Church attendance levels instead of falling, have increased with even more fervence and zealous since the murder of this young child.
Following the 1990 premature of Victoria Climbie, the general public and professional alike generally apportioned blame to Haringey Social Services. In particular, a lone, unsupported, newly qualified African British social worker was singled out as “incompetent”. She also faced prosecution in a law court along with the actual perpetrators in this religious based murders, where the business of nurturing, protecting, caring for and facilitating child development never occurred. In spite of the Lamming Report, where Lord Lamming made a host of recommendations aimed at safeguarding vulnerable children who have come into contact with social services and other health care professionals, which he hoped would safeguard children and prevent death and injuries.
Unfortunately, another young Africann/Angolan national had a lucky escape from certain death in a north London rivulet. Again, the relatives of this child were regular attenders of a local “African” church called the Combat Spirituel Eglise-Congolese Church) owned by a group of young, unemployed men. Again, the pastor in this real life case diagnosed the child of 9 as being demon possessed or a “witch”. She needed to be delivered, which came at an exorbitant price. In addition, other unpalatable methods were encouraged as a methods grubbing hot chillies the eyes, starvation/fasting, name calling, beatings causing common assault and grievous bodily harm. The female, church-going perpetrators planned to place the child in a laundry bag , tie the top off to avoid escaping and finally to be thrown into a nearby river. Fortunately- a male relative stepped in and the young child had a lucky escape. When Hackney Social Services caught up with the child- she had 43 different marks ie. Long term physical abuse!
Another African Caribbean gentle man who rents from a 63 year old Nigerian landlord had a strange tale to tell. He recounted how a female child was kidnapped and held hostage in the same north London flat shared with his landlady. The young girl was kept isolated, restricted from moving around the house or, even meeting her personal hygienic needs. She lived and behaved like a hostage. The tenant managed to talk to the young girl and offered her a meal, which she ate ravenously. The girl claimed ,”she was kidnapped from a village in Nigeria and brought to London for sale or for slavery / She could not be certain. The next day-the girl could not be seen or heard. It is as if she vanished into thin air. He swears that, the girl was sold into slavery in the UK. The landlady failed to provide any explanation as to the girl’s” sudden departure”. So, the Lamming Report, Safeguarding Children Policies, Area Child Protection Committees and the many other government initiatives failed to protect this vulnerable foreign child.
BBC2 aired a documentary on Monady03rd April @23;20 at night. The content focused on the prevalence of child abuse in these non-conformist, unregulated and noisy “African” churches. The writer took note of the time and wondered, what was the point of airing such an important issue so late at night? It should have aired @20:00pm. The programme showed incidences of child abuse and abuse of young ,vulnerable, illiterate women happening in these churches. Victims are often afraid to report the perpetrators as, they are held in high esteem. There is an urgent need to carry out research and the findings to be taken seriously. The research should be led by a social scientist or a social anthropologist. If we are serious about our vulnerable within our community-we must not treat religious leaders and or their religion as a “sacred cows”.
The intention in this essay was to seek proof of whether there is a god or gods. The writer questioned why Africans worldwide were drawn to other people’s religion, in spite of the documented atrocities committed and written by the ancestors of the perpetrators of those crimes against Africans worldwide. The answer seems to lie in the ant-African psychological legacy kept alive since the 1600’s to the present. If there are any “demons” worth casting out of our minds at present-it would have to be those 2 major “demons-the religions of the slave and colonial masters. It is those cultural legacies which need to be “exorcised” from our communities on a grand scale. We cannot move forward and develop as a “freed community” if, we continue to hold unto cultural practices belonging a time past, when we were slaves and de-humanised. Before the Europeans arrived, we had our worshipping routines-let us regain our confidence in our ancestor worship rituals. Our ancestors would be pleased to see us cherish what is ours.

Great article. The facts of history don't lie. And those facts are well stated in this article. Both Islam and Christianity have plagiarized much of the concepts, tenets, and practices contained within them. However, both religions have polluted their religions with foreign ideas that come from outside of Afrika. The religions of Islam and Christianity and the beliefs that evolved out of them, are not indigenous to Afrika or her people. Certainly, only those blinded by their beliefs will deny that both Islam and Christianity were forced upon our people and only used to subjegate us to those who now ruled over us. The facts of History more than proves this. Here's a quote that is quite appropriate for this conversation. It says,

[My response to the above article: T.Y., Editor]
HEREIN ARE ANSWERS TO PONDER
FOR THOSE WHO SEEK THE GOD’S TRUTH
BECAUSE GOD’s WORD AND HIS SALVATION ARE NOT FOUND IN THE CHURCH!
October 27, 2014
I have so much to share that I really do not know where to begin. Right or wrong, I will start by saying that “Cheryl” did great by posting “Africans and their obsession with other people's religion” (Africans and their obsession with other people's religion. I do not know “Cheryl” and never heard of her, and I don’t yet know what all she believes. Nevertheless, the information she brought forward is right on point.
Truly, those who rule over Black groups have put us through the ringer, and we just keep spinning out of control without any direction or ideals about realizing our own self-determinations. I cannot tell where “Cheryl” is taking us with her post, but I am eager to find out, and in the interim, please let me share with you the knowledge the CREATOR has shown me in the Hebrew Scriptures, because it is the only Truth we’ve got (not all but certainly wherein is written “Thus Saith the LORD” and the Psalms). Just know that not under any circumstances do I choose to be the leader of anyone. My endeavor is to boast of My GOD, live among my people, enjoy life with my children and my children’s children, etc., while worshipping the True and Living GOD, and living off the fat of the Land of Milk and Honey in GOD’s Peace like my forefathers should have done.
You see, today, we can’t enjoy life for a myriad of horrific reasons. People fear to leave their homes and are even shot by stray bullets while in the place they believe to be the safest - church. Cops are killing young Blacks, Blacks are killing Blacks, and the government is finding all kinds of ways to keep us oppressed, impoverished, and an inferior people. But things can be better for us if people of color would just take the time to understand why we are cursed and are not rising above our predicament, no matter our wealth and/or education. Look at it this way, if you heard on the TV that Best Buys is selling everything in the store at a 75% discount, or that Stuart Weitzman is having a Shoe Blowout – All shoes are $100 a pair, people would break their necks getting to these stores. Well, I am giving you information about Our CREATOR GOD and it won’t cost you a dime; it’s all free. How many of us will weigh GOD’s WORD up against what descendants of Slaves have been led to believe?
We need answers as to why we descendants of Slaves, or rather so-called Black Peoples suffer the way we do. Read the reason from the WORD of GOD. HE does not lie.
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Numbers 23:19
“… thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.” Deuteronomy 28:29
This verse alone speaks volumes. As a group, “Blacks” do not prosper. And if given a 100 JC’s, still we, as a People, would NOT BE SAVED! The hundreds of gods of Egypt, the hundreds of idols of Africa, and including the White Man’s, blue-eyed JC man-god have not saved Blacks out of the hands of those who rule over us in Africa and in the countries where we have been scattered throughout this world in view of the dilemma of the heinous Slave Trade. Given what the White Man has done to people of color, we really are in the “hands of our enemies” and “heathens” just as Our GOD has said. These are the situations that must be pondered in order that we come to the GOD’s TRUTH of the matter, as to why we are so miserable and really cannot prosper or enjoy life.
Let me first try to make it understood that, believe it or not, this world is in shambles and a loose cannon ready to blow, and it is all because of us – the Children of Israel who defied the True and Living GOD by not living according to HIS Book of the Law.! That sounds preposterous, but I assure you it is true. Ours forefathers were Commanded to keep GOD’s Righteous Way of Life “forever”, but they didn’t, and as a result we are paying the price for their disobedience. They rejected GOD’s Ways that determine Righteousness.
“And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.” Exodus 24:12
“When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing. Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:” Deuteronomy 31:11,12
“For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?” Deuteronomy 4:7,8
Israelites would not Keep these Righteous Laws, Statutes, and Judgments. What more could the GOD of Israel have said to our forefathers and to those of us living today to make it understood that we must OBEY the CREATOR GOD or face HIS punishments? What more could HE have said to make us understand that HE is a Righteous and Just GOD and SAVIOR for those who follow HIS Ways of Righteousness?
“Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” Isaiah 45:21,22
“He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man, Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 18:8,9
But though these are GOD’s WORDS, people still will not take heed to do HIS Will.
When the CREATOR GOD of Israel scattered HIS People from their Land, HE gave HIS Earth into the hands of the heathen to punish HIS Covenant People because of their great transgressions against HIM. And the White Man has been so evil that he has done everything in his power to keep GOD’s WORD in the Hebrew Scriptures hidden from us, and actually, he has done a darn good job of it. His “New Testament” is the biggest farce and the greatest evil of all times. This “New Testament” Book, because of Israel’s sins, is a curse and has the People of the LORD GOD believing in the worst lie ever told – that the CREATOR GOD is a mere man!
The books of the Hebrew Scriptures wherein is found Thus Saith the LORD focuses on belief in ONE GOD – the GOD of Israel, HIS Righteous Walk of Life, and punishment for disobedience. The “New Testament” focuses on belief in a “man” who forgives sins and who gives folks everlasting life. But yet there is no WORD of GOD to validate this claim, and more importantly, there is no evidence of this assertion either. Thus, we must search GOD’s WORD to determine HIS TRUTH from lies because we have been terribly deceived as we endure this endless infliction by those who hate us – though they gave us this White, blue-eyed man-god to worship. Something to think about, right?
No matter what this White Man tells us, we accept it – hook, line, and sinker. And not only that, we want to be just like him. That, too, is part of his scheme to keep us brainwashed and disliking ourselves: our skin color, our hair, and our people. In truth, we are a people constantly dragged through Hell on a daily basis. And we are thoroughly confused the whole while we are walking in darkness.
Believe me, we had it the best a Nation of People could live, and we prospered and owned gold mines, silver mines, and precious gems. We had the ONE True and Living GOD, and HE gave us a “Good Life”: fertile Land, power, and an abundance of wealth unrivaled by any other nation. Israel was the “Glory of all lands”, and yes, we had it all. There was nothing we needed, and more importantly, Our GOD of Israel kept us safe from our enemies. They feared our forefathers because of Our GOD that lived in the midst of the Children of Israel. Like I said, we had it all!
“Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.” Isaiah 60:21
“Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up mine hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up mine hand unto them, saying, I am the LORD your God; In the day that I lifted up mine hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt into a land that I had espied for them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands:” Ezekiel 20:5,6
Yes, we had the ONE True and Living CREATOR GOD, and we had everything to go with our most Loving relationship with HIM. And HE warned our forefathers scores of times to be true to HIM and not to worship other gods, or we would be scattered from the Land. They did not listen, and enslavemwnt was our punishment in the lands of the most ruthless barbarians that ever existed.
“Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me; There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god. I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels. Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.” Palm 81:8 – 14
The GOD of Israel saved HIS Covenant and Chosen People out of Egyptian captivity, gave them the Holy Land, and gave them bumper crops, as well as cared for and fed the poor. But they still turned to false gods. Our wicked forefathers, the Children of Israel, flatly refused to obey GOD’s Book of the Law and sought after their own man-made gods, as well as the gods of the surrounding nations to worship them. They forsook the CREATOR GOD that had given them all their hearts’ desires.
The GOD of Israel said that the prophets speak a vision of their own hearts and not out of the MOUTH of the LORD.
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:16
“But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.” Jeremiah 23:22
Above is just more evidence that we must be obedient to GOD’s WORD and NOT belief in JC, for this “man” cannot save and cannot eliminate evil and unrighteous. Only obedience to living and doing GOD’s Book of the Law can accomplish this endeavor.
If GOD punished the wicked prophets for following their own visions, doesn’t it stand to reason that HE would also punish all who are responsible for spreading this false doctrine that was invented by the imaginations of the “New Testament” writers, specifically so they could change HIS Ordinances?
“The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.” Isaiah 24:4 - 6
“How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
“Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:26,27,32
With the CREATOR GOD and my forefathers, there were many “last straws”, but the time the remnant of the Tribe of Judah returned from their 70-year captivity from under the Ancient Babylonians and still would live according to GOD’s Righteous Book of the Law, HE finally washed HIS Hands of them and scattered them among the heathen.
“Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land. Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations. And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
“And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.
“Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none. Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients. The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.” Ezekiel 7:1 – 4,9,25 - 27
“Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
“Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.” Micah3:4,12
“And one hath
committed abomination with his neighbour's wife; and
another hath lewdly defiled his daughter in law; and another in thee hath
humbled his sister, his father's daughter.
In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord GOD. Behold, therefore I have smitten mine hand at thy dishonest gain which thou hast made, and at thy blood which hath been in the midst of thee. Can thine heart endure, or can thine hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with thee? I the LORD have spoken it, and will do it. And I will scatter thee among the heathen, and disperse thee in the countries, and will consume thy filthiness out of thee. And thou shalt take thine inheritance in thyself in the sight of the heathen, and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.” Ezekiel 22:11 – 16
IN THEIR AFFLICTION THEY WILL SEEK ME EARLY!
“I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.” Hosea 5:15
Think about it; living among the heathen is terrifying. Or do you think that this life really isn’t all that bad living among the heathen…We can wear Nike sneakers and rap and play sports and sing happy songs, and we can worship any kindda way we choose ‘cause we got multiple ways of worship.
But we also have to deal with corruptions at every turn while this “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” looks the other way and at times even condones vicious acts in the courts that are clearly against descendants of Slaves who all know are the defenseless and those who have no voice? Our life among the heathen is Hell, and there is no other way to describe it.
This life is festered with vice, porn, crime, child and spousal abuse, drugs, murder, cruelty, nakedness, red light districts, ghettoes, schools of hard knocks, gangs, poverty, injustice, corruptions, immoral religions, race hatred, discrimination, police brutality, racial profiling, violence, war, sickness, cancer, Ebola, endless sorrows, and the list goes on… This is not only life in the lands of the heathen, this is sheer misery, heartache, and desperation on Earth watching Black suppression and how it destroys us and our progeny. We live the worst curses a nation of people can endure! And the heathen has us believing that “America the Beautiful” is the “Greatest Country in the World”. And then we pick up the newspaper in the morning only to learn that another young “Black” kid was shot dead by “New York’s Finest” or by another city’s police officer, or possibly that President Obama appointed another White person to the Supreme Court of the United States to deal with “Justice for all” in this “Land of Liberty”. This is our fate all because our forefathers committed the worst abominations imaginable.
“And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them. But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:” Deuteronomy 28:14,15
“Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.” Deuteronomy 28:41
“The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.” Deuteronomy 28:20 – 22
“The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:” Deuteronomy 28:43 – 45
The Children of Israel and the wicked heathens all wanted to worship other gods, and the CREATOR gave them their wish but not without consequences. Their man-made gods would be incapable of saving them even unto this day, and HE knew it.
“And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.” Deuteronomy 28:64
“Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us. But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah. Wherefore will ye plead with me? ye all have transgressed against me, saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 2:27 - 29
“There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. Jeremiah 30:13
“To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection. See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.” Deuteronomy 32:35 – 39
“Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.” Lamentations 5:8
And that’s the Truth, for “none” would mean “no one”, including JC all because this curse is upon us until the CREATOR GOD REMOVES IT. GOD DID NOT LIE! All this and worse atrocities happened to the scattered sheep of the House of Israel at the time of the Slave Trade and during the time of their enslavement at the hands of their enemies.
Thus are the conditions of this world. The CREATOR GOD wanted a World replete with HIS Righteous Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, so that the Peoples HE Created would worship HIM, but instead, HE gave everyone their hearts desires, which was to live as they choose. And as a result all Hell has broken out, and this Earth is in total chaos and mayhem. The White Man cannot enjoy life no matter how rich he is, and descendants of Slaves cannot enjoy FREEDOM under their control. And I cannot stress enough that the reason for all this distress, misery and despair are due to the worship of false gods and due to the neglect of Our MAKER – the ONE True and Living GOD.
The White Man gave us his religion to make sure we, Israelites and descendants of Slaves, would not find out the Truth of this matter. And lo’ and behold, it worked because so-called Black People cannot give up JC. Folks eat this false god up and swallow him whole with all the tribulations that come with him, and they still are not saved.
Countless times our forefathers turned to false gods, and HE caused their enemies to rule over them. But each of those times HE repented and gave them back their freedom and their Kingdom. But when the kings of Israel, HIS priests, and HIS prophets were determined to disobey their ONLY SAVIOR and DELIVER to choose other gods and to commit wickedness and believed that they would never be cast from the Land, the GOD of Israel scattered them just as HE had said HE would. And from the days of Malachi unto this day, Israelites have lost their ethnicity to others and have suffered at the hands of our enemies.
“And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it. And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.” Leviticus 26:32 – 34
“And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.” Deuteronomy 4:27,28
“Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. And HE GAVE THEM INTO THE HAND OF THE HEATHEN; and they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.” Psalm 106:40 - 42
“And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.” Ezekiel 39:23
Moreover, given the fact that there were no prophets at the time of the JC “Coming”, we have to realize that there was no WORD from GOD – only the wicked imaginations of men to propagate their evil religious inspirations. And it is the Slave Trade and our enslavement for our sins and disobedience that proves the “New Testament” to be without GOD’s TRUTH and without any credibility whatsoever. GOD removed HIMSELF from the midst of HIS People, HE dismissed HIS Prophets, and then ended all visions, direction, and counsel to them and to anyone, and HE left HIS Covenant People to fall into the hands of their enemies in order to fulfill the curses upon us written in Leviticus 26th and in Deuteronomy 28th Chapters for forsaking HIM for false gods and for rejecting HIS Righteous Book of the Law. Thus, we know that GOD’s LAW is forever and that not under any circumstances can it be revoked with the likes of a “man” as Christians are led to believe (Romans 10:4).
HOWEVER, THERE IS HOPE FOR US, AND IT IS OUR LAST CHANCE:
“Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them: and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies.” Nehemiah 9:27
Therefore, we must cry again to the GOD that counts – NOT just to any god but to the Most High CREATOR GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. HE is Our GOD that gave HIMSELF a Holy Name representative of the People HE Loves and named and chose for HIMSELF to show forth HIS PRAISE.
“And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.” Exodus 3:15
”This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.” Isaiah 43:21
“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.” Joel 3:16
The Land of Israel stands as a Witness for the CREATOR GOD and HIS TRUTH and more so for HIS POWER and GREATNESS and HIS Love for HIS Chosen People, Israel. This GOD is all we’ve got and is our only chance for Redemption out of this Hell. Given all that is written in “Cheryl’s” post it would be impossible for us to rise above this White Man’s authority and oppression on our own. Without a doubt, we will need the GOD of Israel that launched this evil captivity and these barbaric Rulers over us. This is the GOD we have no choice else to call upon. And perish the thought of appealing to the US Congress and/or the Black Caucus. My goodness!!! The only way these people will be a voice for descendants of Slaves is when the CREATOR GOD brings them to tremble first, and don’t rule it out. These public servants are bought every day, and presently there is no Justice Department to serve us. If there were, descendants of Slaves would not still be fighting for voting rights, civil rights, human rights, as well as recompense for the murder and maiming and pain and suffering endured in the Slave Trade, during enslavement, and even since post-slavery.
No other god has established a land for its worshippers and called it by HIS Holy Name. ONLY the CREATOR GOD of Israel has chosen the Land of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake and for HIS People, the Nation of Israel. HE is the ONLY GOD that has done such a thing to honor HIS Beloved People proving that HE is indeed GOD and not a god made by men’s hands or a god imagined with a pen.
The Europeans who call themselves “Jews” make a weak attempt to make themselves the Children of Israel, and that’s because of their power and authority throughout the world in this wicked world order. But you see, history is on our side and so is prophecy. They were never scattered slaves, and they were never the tail and their enemies the head. I think you will agree that these White so-called “Jews” are filthy rich and are not the accursed mentioned in Leviticus 26th and Deuteronomy 28th Chapters. Truth be told, they are the ones who control us and help keep us in darkness in order that they sustain their LIE! By the way, these people also invented a new religion, “Judaism,” and published their own religious books, however, not one of them was ordained by the CREATOR. Their Talmud and other books, unfounded by GOD’s LAW, destroy their credibility because they deceive and turn people away from GOD’s TRUTH, as much as the “New Testament”. These so-called “Jews”, or rather Israelis, are pompous and arrogant, and they really believe that the GOD of Abraham will not keep HIS Promises to Abraham and his SEED and will give them the Land of Israel instead. These people delude themselves, and above all people, they will get their just deserts; mark my words. It is these Israelis and those allied with them to do their bidding whom Ezekiel prophesied are the “worst of the heathen”:
“Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled.” Ezekiel 7:24
They have taken Israel’s identity and usurped Israel’s Land and have deceived the world with their wicked civilizations that order this world. Our enemies want us under their control, therefore, we must stop buying into their gods, their ways, their culture, and their customs because their ideals keep us under their dominance and under their philosophies, which mean absolutely nothing to the True and Living CREATOR GOD. The GOD of Israel has already endorsed HIS “Perfect” Way of Life and HIS Holy Days, but true to the heathens, they have completely disregarded them for theirs. Consider what the CREATOR GOD told HIS Chosen People, Israel, in regard to the heathenish Canaanites, and know that this should be our same attitude concerning the heathens of this day and age:
“Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth forever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.” Ezra 9:12
“Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.” Exodus 23:32,33
“Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire. For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.” Deuteronomy 7:3 - 6
Not every Black is an Israelite, but those who are must seek to RETURN to Our GOD and to our heritage, for Our GOD has a Plan for us. And those who are not, by all means, seek HIM, as well, for HE hears the prayers of all who call upon HIM. O’, did you think GOD was racist? No, HE is not. Let me make that perfectly clear! HE just hates evil, wickedness, and disobedience to HIS Book of the Law and color has nothing to do with it.
“Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.” Isaiah 56:1 - 8
Our GOD of Israel is waking up the “Dry Bones” (Ezekiel 37th Chapter), if we will only hearken to HIS WORD and to HIS CALLING this time, and HE will save us all out of this captivity just like HE saved our forefathers out of the Egyptian House of Bondage.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.” Isaiah 11:11,12
“And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:3,4
“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.” Jeremiah 23:7,8
The “New Testament” falsely teaches that JC is of the seed of King David (Matt. 1:1). No, no, no! Is the man born of a virgin or born by way of copulation? Christianity can’t have it both ways. Hence, if JC was born of a virgin, he cannot be of the lineage of King David. For the “New Testament” to suggest that he is, reinforces the fact that this man-god is indeed suspect. Anyway, GOD’s Prophet Jeremiah makes no mistake about this matter. It will be the seed of King David that will reign over GOD’s Kingdom and who will Judge Righteously and Justly, and Jeremiah did not studder.
“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.” Isaiah 11:1 - 5
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.” Jeremiah 23:5
Power and Wealth are Blessings from GOD, and they again await us when we RETURN to Our GOD and SAVIOR and embrace HIS Book of the Law and WALK HIS Paths of Righteousness.
“There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Joshua 1:5 - 9
“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden. Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.” Zephaniah 3:17 – 20
So, now perhaps it is surely understood that we do not need JC! It doesn’t get any better than this!
We have to wake up to the GOD’s TRUTH, reason being Our GOD of this Universe has something so very special for us and for our children for generations to come if we will only RETURN to HIM, CALL UPON HIM, and LIVE and DO HIS Laws, Statutes, and Judgments. The GOD of this Universe is a GOD at HAND, and HE fills Heaven and Earth awaiting us to embrace HIM and HIS Ways. I’m not just a Messenger who EXALTS and BOASTS of this GREAT GOD, but I am HIS Servant, as are all Israelites, who passionately want to worship My GOD in HIS Holy Temple. We have so much to look forward to, and because these are the Latter Days, it won’t be long now but we cannot waste time, as GOD is on a Mission to take back HIS Universe and destroy the wicked from off HIS Earth.
In that the CREATOR GOD of Righteousness is Our GOD and we represent HIM, then we must set up not only HIS Kingdom of Israel in Righteousness but also GOD’s entire world. This Earth, as it is now, cannot continue, and that is not to say that it will be destroyed. Where the heathen has transformed GOD’s GOOD Earth into a place uninhabitable for human beings, we must change it to meet GOD’s Divine Standards. Therefore, we must end the injustice and cruelty that prevails against descendants of Slaves and against all nations and people who suffer at the hands of the powers-that-be. We must organize a means for the impoverished peoples of Africa to thrive and be productive. GOD’s Chosen must be exemplary with all peoples, nations, and tongues and share GOD’s Way of Life in order that we will all live under the umbrella of HIS LAW and serve HIM with ONE CONSENT.
In GOD’s World Order obedient people will enjoy genuine justice, experience humility, GOD’s Peace, and HIS Happiness and see an end to war. No more will wicked Rulers divide and conquer and exploit others for their resources and riches. And above all, people will not be called “chattel” or treated as such, and there will be no tenets to perpetuate “survival of the fittest” because all who will worship the GOD of Israel will survive and will rejoice in knowledge of HIM and in HIS GOODNESS and will observe HIS Holy Days. And there will be no reason to fear the cruel and heartless enemies or heathens because there will be none. The Most High GOD will deal with all the evil and wicked individuals who have brought misery and grief upon us and to the helpless and those who have subjugated peoples around the world. Understand also, that there will be no politics/democracy, the works of corruption to perpetuate greed. As it is written, the GOD of Israel has already planned for a Righteous King to reign over the Kingdom of Israel and one who will rule in the Ways if the CREATOR GOD.
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” Isaiah 2:2 – 4
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” Jeremiah 23:5,6
“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy. For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.” Zephaniah 3:8,9
“The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged. Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.” Psalm 37:29 - 40
“Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come. Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence. And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God. But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 11:16 - 21
GOD’s WAYS are all new to those who do not read the Hebrew Scriptures and to those who do live by the “New Testament” Book. Sadly, most of us do not realize the control this White Man has over us and over the world. Resulting from the sins of our forefathers, we have lived at the mercy of our enemies who rule over us, albeit, in a culture burdened with the ways of the heathen and their wicked customs.
“Blacks” have feared at the shaking of a leaf for millennia, but not our Captors. However, today White folks are scared out of their wits of this Ebola plague. Nevertheless, this plague is to wake up the World, especially the descendants of Slaves in order that they will cease to believe in the White Man’s JC, man-god, and turn to the ALL-MIGHTY CREATOR GOD of this Universe. Believing in JC and in other gods has been our demise. When we change and return to the True CREATOR of this Universe, then HE will return back to us and HELP, HEAL, and DELIVER us out of this mourning because we TRUST in HIM with our whole heart, soul, and might. And I can’t stress Trusting in HIM enough!
“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” Nahum 1:7
If people continue to worship JC and all other false gods, then know of a surety that these “Latter Days” will not fair well with them. The Hebrew Scriptures have proven this. Sin manifests destruction and punishment. And proof of this fact is that GOD scattered HIS own Beloved People from HIS Holy Land to endure a heinous Slave Trade, which was a direct and obvious result of disobedience and the worship of false gods! The Most High CREATOR GOD wants HIS due, which is for this world of Peoples to worship ONLY HIM in TRUTH and in Righteousness forever.
Again, my desire is to boast of the CREATOR GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and disseminate HIS TRUTH that it shine on HIS Earth. We have walked in Darkness for far too long, and now it is time for HIS LIGHT to shine in order that all who seek HIM will find HIM and worship HIM for all the GOODNESS HE will manifest for us.
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.”

South Africa: Wouter Basson to answer misconduct case
Wouter Basson was acquitted in 2002 of 67 charges including murder
A South Africa court has rejected an application by "Dr Death" Wouter Basson for a discharge on four charges of unprofessional conduct.
Dr Basson is charged with producing illegal drugs in the apartheid era.
As head of the military's chemical and biological warfare division, he is accused of creating viruses that would only attack black people.
The Health Professions Council (HPC) has ruled that he does have a case to answer.
He could lose his medical licence.
The HPC granted Dr Basson a discharge on two of the charges and part of a third charge against him, but ruled that the hearing on four remaining charges should continue later this year.
HPC professional conduct committee chairman Jannie Hugo said it could not be said that there was no evidence on which a reasonable man could convict Dr Basson.
The man dubbed Dr Death escaped a criminal conviction in 2002, arguing that he had acted under orders of the South African Defence Force (SADF).
He is now a cardiologist in Cape Town.
But the HPC is investigating whether he should be struck off the doctor's roll for providing soldiers with cyanide capsules.
He is alleged to have provided security forces cyanide to help them commit suicide, "weaponising" thousands of 120mm mortar bombs with teargas, and providing drugs that would disorientate SADF prisoners
Dr Basson brought an application saying no evidence of wrongdoing had been brought against him.
"I closed this chapter 20 years ago," he told reporters outside the hearing at the HPC offices in Pretoria last year.
"All I want is to continue serving the country as a medical professional," he said at the time.
The hearing will continue on March 27.
Dr Basson's attorney Wynanda Coetzee, said she was "satisfied" with the ruling but had not yet decided if he would testify, reports say.
[How interesting. President Obama seems to get in a pickle no matter what happens. Now, let’s see how much this so-called “Nobel Peace Prize” means to him. I wonder if running for a third term for president were allowed if he would run. I think he has had enough of this spotlight. It has not on tarnished his image, but it has aged him terribly. And if he doesn’t hurry up and get out of this office, I personally think he might have a nervous breakdown. T.Y., Editor]
Nobel Peace Prize Winners Urge Obama To Release CIA Torture Report
The Huffington Post | By Alana Horowitz
Twelve Nobel Peace Prize winners penned an open letter to President Barack Obama urging his administration to release a U.S. Senate report on the CIA's use of torture.
In the letter, released Sunday night on TheCommunity.com, the laureates asked for "full disclosure to the American people of the extent and use of torture and rendition by American soldiers, operatives, and contractors, as well as the authorization of torture and rendition by American officials." The letter also pushed for a clear plan for the closing of Guantanamo Bay and other international sites where the U.S. has engaged in torture.
The letter was signed by José Ramos-Horta, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, F.W. De Klerk, Leymah Gbowee, Muhammad Yunus, John Hume, Bishop Carlos X. Belo, Betty Williams, Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Jody Williams, Oscar Arias Sanchez and Mohammad ElBaradei.
The laureates spoke out sharply against any use of torture, but said that the U.S.' tactics were particularly troubling.
"In recent decades, by accepting the flagrant use of torture and other violations of international law in the name of combating terrorism, American leaders have eroded the very freedoms and rights that generations of their young gave their lives to defend," they said. "They have again set an example that will be followed by others; only now, it is one that will be used to justify the use of torture by regimes around the world, including against American soldiers in foreign lands. In losing their way, they have made us all vulnerable."
The letter urged Obama to better adhere to the policies set forth by the UN Convention against Torture and the Geneva Convention.
Read the full letter here.
The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has compiled a 6000-page report on the CIA's use of torture following the September 11th, 2001 attacks. Advocates have been urging the White House for months to no avail to make the report public.
President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for his efforts in international diplomacy and nuclear nonproliferation.
[Are we surprised? T.Y., Editor]
Last Halloween, tobacco giant Reynolds American quietly cut a $30,000 check for Justice For All NC, a nonprofit that funneled more than $1.6 million in outside funding into North Carolina's 2012 Supreme Court elections, to help incumbent conservative Justice Paul Newby keep his seat on the bench.
The Winston-Salem-based company's $30,000 donation was pocket change compared with the wave of outside spending that would flood the primary elections for the state's high court months later, but it was a start.
Justice For All NC sprung back into action in April, unleashing a flurry of attack ads declaring that state Supreme Court Justice Robin Hudson is "not tough on child molesters." Hudson, the TV ads claimed, sided with sexual predators.
The ads referenced a 2010 case in which Hudson sided with the dissent in a 4-3 ruling over a law that established an ankle bracelet-monitoring program for sex offenders. In her dissent, Hudson argued the program was cumbersome and did little to protect kids, a point that was echoed in a 2012 investigation by the Winston-Salem Journal. The ineffective program was therefore excessive punishment for sex offenders who committed their crimes before the law was passed, Hudson argued.
At first, it was unclear who paid the $648,000 to run the "child molester" ads. Justice For All NC listed its address at a UPS store in a strip mall and did not say much to the media.
North Carolina law allowed Justice For All NC to keep most of its finances under wraps until after Hudson survived the primary vote, but campaign finance disclosures would show that, the day before its "child molester" ad buy, the group received $650,000 from the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC). Another $250,000 from the RSLC came in a week later.
The RSLC gave another $400,000 to Justice For All NC on October 24, according to the most recent campaign disclosure forms filed with the North Carolina Board of Elections.
The RSLC has helped Republicans fill seats in statehouses and legislatures across the country and spent $27 million on races in 42 states during the 2012 election season alone. The group now claims to be the only national political group that is focused on state-level judicial elections, which are traditionally nonpartisan affairs in many states, including North Carolina.
As part of its "Judicial Fairness Initiative" aimed at electing conservative judges, the RLSC has said it plans to spend $5 million in 2014 and has already spread more than $1.6 million across races in North Carolina, Montana and Missouri alone, according to campaign records and analysis by the Brennan Center for Justice.
The RLSC's most generous donors are familiar names in right-wing campaign finance, including Koch Industries, Walmart, AT&T and ExxonMobil, to name a few.
The biggest donor to the RLSC in 2014, however, is Reynolds American, which gave the group $1.1 million this year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
"It's really troubling when you look at where the money comes from," said Brennan Center Counsel Alicia Bannon. "Oftentimes it's coming from lawyers and interest groups that have a direct stake in the cases that these courts are hearing."
Reynolds American, which owns cigarette brands like Camel and Pall Mall, has given the RLSC a total of $2.1 million since 2011 and is the RSLC's largest donor from North Carolina, according to the Institute for Southern Studies.
Coming in second place is North Carolina cigarette maker Lorillard, which has donated $335,000 to the RLSC since 2011.
Like most big tobacco companies, Reynolds and Lorillard are no strangers to the courtroom.
Lorillard, which counts Newport and Kent among its brands, has long been Reynolds' home-state rival, but that changed in July, when Reynolds announced a $27.4 billion deal to buy Lorillard.
Investors have filed lawsuits in North Carolina courts challenging the buyout, because they claim it would benefit British tobacco firms with stakes in the deal instead of shareholders.
Additionally, state and federal courts outside of North Carolina recently found both companies liable for damages in multi-billion-dollar lawsuits filed by family members of people who died from smoking.
Tobacco companies like Reynolds and Lorillard are used to such lawsuits, but with billions of dollars on the line, it still pays to have friends on the bench.
Last week, a Reynolds subsidiary gave $50,000 to the North Carolina Judicial Committee, a group that used donations from Justice For All NC to support Paul Newby in 2012, according to campaign filings.
More than 90 percent of judicial business in the United States is decided in state courts, and with business interests tangled up in much of the litigation, it's easy to understand why corporations spend big on state judicial campaigns.
"Special interest groups continue to dump money into state supreme court races in an attempt to stack the deck in their favor," Bannon said. "Voters should feel like our courts are fair and impartial, not political playgrounds where business interests and lawyers can tilt the scales of justice with their pocketbooks."
Since January, political parties, outside groups and candidates spent more than $12.1 million on TV ads for state judicial races across the country. In the past week, outside groups spent a total of nearly $1 million on ads in Michigan, Montana, Ohio, North Carolina and Illinois in a last-minute surge before the election.
The 2012 election cycle was the first full cycle since the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United ruling that struck down caps on outside corporate campaign spending, and special interest groups spent a record $15.4 million on TV ads for state high court races, nearly half the total spent on those races that year, according to a 2013 report by the Brennan Center and other watchdogs.
"Special interest groups have realized that it doesn’t take much money to reshape an entire state court compared to high-cost elections for statewide political offices," Bannon said.
Last year, the American Constitution Society released analysis of judicial campaign finance data from 2000-2009 showing that the more campaign cash a state justice receives from business interests, the more likely they are to rule in favor of business litigants who show up in their courts.
Judges or Politicians?
So what does Justice For All NC have planned for the last-minute $400,000 donation it received from the RSLC last week? The group has been quiet since its "child molester" ads became national news fodder, but it began airing an ad on Wednesday supporting conservative high court candidate Mike Robinson.
North Carolina Supreme Court candidates have been responsible for most of the $2 million in TV ad buys during the general election, in contrast to the primaries, when Justice for All NC and the North Carolina Chamber of Commerce spent massive amounts of money on TV ads, many of them either attacking Hudson or supporting her conservative opponents.
Fundraising among the nine candidates for the court's four open seats has skyrocketed to a total of $2.2 million, according to the Brennan Center. Judicial candidates in North Carolina have not raised more than $200,000 in any race since 2008.
Why the huge uptick in fundraising? State lawmakers removed North Carolina's public financing program for judicial candidates last year, a move that forced candidates to seek out private donors. Bannon, however, said that is only one part of the story. The threat of another wave of outside spending, she said, has put pressure on the judicial candidates to build solid war chests and behave more like politicians than judges.
"If I have a case before the judge, I want that judge to be judging that case according to the law, not thinking about where the next campaign donation is coming from," Bannon said.
Marijuana expected to become legal in Washington DC
In a referendum next week, voters in the US capital look likely to legalise marijuana.

The momentum for legal cannabis has come largely from the western United States, where libertarian instincts still run strong. Voters have concluded it is simply not the government’s business to stop people smoking weed.
“Police use marijuana laws to harass people of colour,” said Malik Burnett, a young black doctor helping to lead the legalisation effort. “The way to deal with that is to simply take marijuana out of the equation.”
Initiative 71, as the marijuana measure is formally known, would allow people to possess up to two ounces of cannabis for personal use and grow six pot plants in their own homes. If there is a yes vote, the city council is expected to move quickly to pass laws regulating how it is bought and sold.
Perhaps ironically, it is the African-American community that is the most ambivalent about the prospect of legal pot. While DC’s affluent white population is expected to vote in favour of Initiative 71 by a large margin, the city’s black residents are more divided.
“I have a lot of fears about what this is going to lead to,” said Dr Stephen Tucker, one of several black pastors who gathered at the church to listen to a debate between supporters and opponents of the initiative.
“Young guys my age do not need one more way to get high,” said Will Jones, a 24-year-old African-American activist spearheading the fight against legal cannabis. “It’s not going to help us in our education or our careers.”
They also brush aside fears of “Big Marijuana”, saying the pot industry is likely to be made up of small producers akin to small craft beer brewers and very different from the giants of alcohol and tobacco.
That may reflect the current reality, where artisan pot growers produce small batches of brands with names like “Psychosis Cheese” or “Desert Dragon Kush”. But with some analysts predicting cannabis to become a $35 billion industry by 2020, it’s easy to imagine large corporations wanting a puff of the profits.
Vanessa West, general manager at one of the city’s medical cannabis dispensaries, predicted few would even notice once legalisation extends to recreational pot. “The sky didn’t fall in in Colorado or Washington state and it won’t here, either.”
Republicans generally take a harder line on drugs than Democrats and Hillary Clinton, who was at university in the 1960s but insists she has never tried cannabis, is less laissez-faire than the current president.
For now, the cannabis movement is riding high and pushing for the day when smoking pot is as uncontroversial as drinking red wine. Legalisation on the President's doorstep would be a major step in that direction.
According to Cole, white saviours fundamentally believe they are indispensable to the very existence of those on the receiving end of their "interventions". Like some potted plants, they tend to bloom in "exotic" environments far removed from their natural habitats.
At the height of Ebola, the myth of the white saviour has resurfaced again and again, framing Africans as infantile objects of external interventions. The white saviour complex has placed a premium on foreign expertise, while negating domestic capabilities.
We've been assailed with images of mostly white foreigners flown out of the Ebola "hot zone" with the promise of expert care abroad. As spokespersons for the thousands "left behind", they have been catapulted into the heady limelight of overnight stardom.
We've been bombarded with a cacophony of non-African "expert" opinions about how to "save" Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone from Ebola. Yet, Ugandan and Congolese specialists, who contained the virus repeatedly in their own countries, have been sidelined in the mainstream international press.
Indian writer and human rights activist Arundathi Roy once said, "there is no such thing as the voiceless, only the deliberately silenced or the preferably unheard". Indeed, narratives about African ingenuity, African agency, and African heroism in the age of Ebola have been preferably unheard. As an African proverb aptly puts it: "Until the lion learns to write, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter."
Most recently Nigeria positioned itself as a lion that completely unsettled the narrative around Ebola and the white saviour complex. As the regional West African hegemon and Africa's fastest growing economy, Nigeria contained Ebola in three months without foreign intervention.
With 31 percent of overall healthcare spending accounted for by the federal government in 2012 alone, Nigeria used infrastructure and systems already in place to fight polio, to contain Ebola. Institutions such as the Nigerian Center for Disease Control, the Nigerian Field Epidemiology Training Program, and the Lagos State Ministry of Health responded quickly by quarantining and treating suspected Ebola patients, tracing the contacts of those infected, and launching a massive public awareness campaign about how to avoid further transmission of the virus. With more doctors than Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone combined, Nigeria also galvanised the support of healthcare workers who had previously been on strike.
Quite naturally, detractors attempted to undermine Nigeria's success. When the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the country Ebola-free a few weeks ago, the fanfare around this feat was short-lived. I even sensed some unspoken incredulity. Folks were quick to react that Nigeria wasn't completely out of the woods yet, that there could be a resurgence of Ebola.
Some narratives erroneously attributed Nigeria's success to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the WHO, and the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Yet, Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie responded with a sharp smack-down of this "lie". She openly criticised The Washington Post and The New York Times for deliberating concealing the fact that local, not international efforts, had contained Ebola. For instance, it was a Nigerian woman, Dr Ameyo Adadevoh, who insisted on isolating the country's first Ebola patient before eventually succumbing to the virus herself.
Less incredulous individuals praised Nigeria, wondering why they weren't being consulted about the do's and don'ts of Ebola containment. Consultations with Nigerians were largely shirked to the side because they invalidated the white saviour complex.
One thing Ebola has exposed about the white saviour complex is that it is voracious and unapologetic. It simplifies complexity, appropriates ideas without crediting the source, upstages local efforts that preceded it, thrives on "I" statements, and soaks up media attention.
In her celebrated essay, "Can the subaltern speak?", Gayatri Spivak rails against the problematic narrative of "white men saving brown women from brown men". In actuality, no one has the capacity to "save" another human being. Believing that one can is the greatest form of self-delusion and narcissism.
Contrary to the dominant Ebola foreign intervention narrative, Liberians, Guineans, and Sierra Leoneans are not waiting around idle, eager to be rescued by white saviours. While we welcome genuine collaboration, we remain our own heroes and heroines. The fact that more than 200 local healthcare workers died from Ebola is a testament to that heroism. They risked their lives long before international actors woke up from their slumber.
No externally driven intervention narrative can change that fact, as Nigeria has proven. So, thank you, Nigeria, for completely exposing the white saviour complex for being a figment of western imagination. Like other psychological disorders, it must be treated with regular doses of reality, now and after Ebola.
The president came to Washington thinking he could change Washington, make it better, unite it and the nation. He was wrong. As he ascended, the tone of political discourse descended, as much because of who he was as what he did.
When Obama introduced Joe Biden as his vice-presidential running mate in Springfield, Ill., he expressed his confidence that Biden could “help me turn the page on the ugly partisanship in Washington, so we can bring Democrats and Republicans together to pass an agenda that works for the American people.”
“On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics. We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things.”
He underestimated the degree to which his very presence for some would feel more like a thorn than a salve. The president seemed to think that winning was the thing. It wasn’t. Stamina was the thing. The ability to nurse a grievance was the thing.
The president’s first “I won” moment came shortly after his inauguration. It was in an hourlong, bipartisan meeting with congressional leaders about the stimulus package. ABC News reported an exchange the president had with Eric Cantor this way:
Then, in a 2010 meeting with members of Congress about the Affordable Care Act, a visibly agitated president quipped to John McCain (who was raising concerns about the bill): “We’re not campaigning anymore. The election is over.”
And in 2013, appearing even more agitated following the government shutdown, the president chastised his opponents across the aisle: “You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election.”
And in addition to some people being ideologically opposed to Democratic principles in general, others are endlessly irritated by a personal attitude and persona that seem impervious to chastisement or humbling.
Even the president himself has come around to giving voice to this in public. Last year he told The New York Times: “There’s not an action that I take that you don’t have some folks in Congress who say that I’m usurping my authority. Some of those folks think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency.”
Gall here is an interesting word, and a purposeful one I think. It is in line with all the other adjectives used to describe this president’s not kowtowing and supplicating himself before traditional power structures.
ST JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC) — The second Caribbean Community (Caricom) Conference on Reparations began here on Sunday night with reparations activists joining political leaders in calling for justice for a region that is still reeling from the social and economic effects from the transatlantic slave trade.
"I implore all of us to see ourselves as working towards one aim, one destiny -- the search for justice and repair of our societies; societies which were disfigured by colonisation; societies that continue to suffer the legacies of enslavement and native genocide," said PJ Patterson, former prime minister of Jamaica.
"We need all hands on deck, wherever we are located in the west, in the north, in the east, because the tentacles of colonial injustices were spread far and wide and their legacies continue to be far-reaching to this very day.
"The masses of Caribbean people are still to be brought on board the reparation train. They are stuck at the halts and stations all around the region and indeed in the Diaspora, waiting for reason to board. If we do not wish to have them waiting indefinitely on the platform, or worse boarding the wrong train, we need to use this forum to settle all the unanswered questions around the struggle for reparatory justice," Patterson said.
Patterson was among several speakers lending his voice to the cause. University of the West Indies Vice Chancellor Sir Hilary Beckles, and Dr Julius Garvey, son of Jamaican Negro rights activist Marcus Garvey, also spoke at the start of the three-day event.
"We also see Africans as the poorest people on the planet. In America, the wealth of the average African American is one-twentieth of his or her white counterpart. It almost seems that nothing has changed in 100 years so we still have to speak of repairing the breach, which, in my view, is the full meaning of reparations.
"I would like to suggest that the struggle for reparations is and should be firmly embedded in the struggle for us to repair the damage caused by 500 years of Euro-American dominance so that we address the root causes of the problem," Garvey said.
Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne, who is also the Caricom Chairman, said the transnational slave trade led to the separation and destruction of many families and of the cultural values, tradition, beliefs and artifacts of our people.
"The atrocities committed against our people rank among the worst examples of human barbarism. This institutionalised trade in humans and its attendant atrocities have resulted in a state of underdevelopment in the Caribbean and Africa, 180 years after its abolition," Browne said, adding "notwithstanding these atrocities; what we seek now is reparation, not reprisal."
He said the region does not hold present-day Europeans responsible for "the evils of the ruling classes that controlled their societies and enriched themselves from the cruelties and barbarism to which they subjected our ancestors in this region".
However, he said that it does not preclude them from the acknowledgement of such wrongs. Instead, they should commit themselves to "the noble action of resolving them by honouring our reparatory claims."
Patterson stressed that people should refrain from placing blame at the feet of Africa where some leaders were induced by intimidation, bribery or greed to collaborate in the capture and transport of Africans who were destined for slavery.
"There is no principle of law which permits the organisers of a criminal enterprise to escape responsibility because others collaborated in carrying out the enterprise. Legal responsibility is not affected by any collaboration," Patterson cautioned.
Prime Minister Browne said: "Simply stated, our contention is that our predecessors in this region were subjected to the most inhumane treatment that would today be legitimate matters for trial by the International Criminal Court.
"In the course of that treatment, they were deprived of their liberty and the right to their lives; they were treated not as human beings, not even as animals -- they were treated as "property" to be used or disposed -- as suited the thinking of their owners."
The regional conference, which is being convened by the Caricom Reparations Commission (CRC) is being held under the theme "'An Expert Conference on Caribbean Reparations: Scientific Engagement and Community Mobilisation'.
It is aimed at intensifying discussions regarding the scientific and popular discourse on the CRC's 10-point plan on reparatory justice which was adopted by Caricom leaders at their Inter-Sessional summit in St Vincent and the Grenadines in March.
[After all the European “Jews” and the British have done to give Europeans authority over GOD’s Land, they now desire to leave out. No Breaking News on that one! And it would appear that if this emigration to Germany continues, it will mean that Israelis will need more of our tax dollars to support their apartheid “Jewish State”. As I read the daily events, more and more, I learn just how True GOD’s WORDS are at the mouth of HIS Prophets. It seems people are fleeing to their own lands from the United States and from all countries just like Jeremiah prophesied. “…They shall turn everyone to his people, and they shall flee everyone to his own land.” (Jeremiah 50:16) And under these circumstances, this would mean that it is time for the GOD of Israel to return to HIS Place and take back HIS Holy Land. How long, Father of Abraham; I can’t wait?!!! T.Y. Editor]
Decades after ancestors flee Nazi Germany, thousands of Israelis are moving back in steady trickle. 'Fact that Jews are coming here again constitutes for Germany certificate that it is acceptable again,' says Israeli living in Berlin
Unsurprisingly, once World War II was over and the new state of Israel came into being in 1948, the few Jews who had miraculously survived were loath to stay in Germany, in the "Land der Taeter" ("country of the perpetrators").
Sitting in his well-worn Berlin apartment, Weiss, who is in his 60s, says he has noticed in recent years more and more Israelis coming in order, he believes, to escape the constant threat of violence in the Middle East.
Many come to make the most of Berlin's nightlife and its bohemian lifestyle, attending techno nights in disused industrial warehouses or sampling the gay scene, where "Meshuga nights" with only Israeli music are big crowd-pullers.
Russia said on Thursday that the United States providing weapons to Ukraine’s government to fight separatists in the country’s east would escalate the conflict and be in violation of a number of agreements.
