****I WANT TO THANK MY RECENT VIEWERS FROM ESPAñA, GREECE (hopefully some from my former hometown of Iraklion, Kriti) NORWAY, RUSSIA, UKRAINE, POLAND, TURKEY, HONG KONG SAR* AND ALL MY USUAL READERS FROM THE U.K., U.S., CANADA, BRAZIL AND AUSTRALIA. I THINK THIS JUST PROVES, MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED AND LOOKING FOR ANSWERS.
*Just a note about Hong Kong SAR. I have had some days when the readers from Hong Kong exceed those from the United States. I genuinely hope and pray that this is a reflection of the fact that there is a revival going on in Hong Kong. Yah bless you!!!
The title of this article may be somewhat perplexing to some of you since I have written, in the past, about the possibility of war in America and quite possibly world war. As many of you know I believe that we can look to the scriptures and see what is in store for mankind but to focus only on the negative aspects of scripture does not do justice to YHVH’s Word. the phrase “Fear Not” appears over 100 times in scriptures and is usually given to His people to encourage them that He will protect, comfort and/or deliver His people through trial. One of my favorite instances is found in Deuteronomy 3:22 ‘Do not fear them, for יהוה your Elohim Himself fights for you.’ This was told to the Children of Israel as they faced the giants in the promised land.
My next favorite place is in the B’rit Hadasha (New Testament) where Yeshua exhorts His followers in Luke: Luk 12:32 “Do not fear, little flock, because your Father did delight to give you the reign.” This should be a comfort to us. Also, look at Matthew: Mat 10:26 “Therefore do not fear them. For whatever is covered shall be revealed, and whatever is hidden shall be made known. ((NOTE: I believe we are in this time.))
Mat 10:27 “What I say to you in the dark, speak in the light. And what you hear in the ear, proclaim on the house-tops.
Mat 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the being. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both being and body in Gehenna.
Mat 10:29 “Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground without your Father.
Mat 10:30 “And even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
Mat 10:31 “So do not fear, you are worth more than many sparrows.
Right now the world is racing toward self destruction. If there was anything that could be solved or gained by me worrying about it I would gladly sit down and start worrying. Unfortunately, the only thing that would show a gain would be my blood pressure. I love listening to soft music, especially gospel but any soft music helps. Does this make the problems go away? No! Is there anything that will? No! The world leaders will continue to act like the butts that they are. America has the finest politicians money can buy so, why should their crooked tendencies surprise us.
America is a bankrupt nation, bankrupt economically and morally. With the pedogate scandal FINALLY making it to the news and all the evil going on in high places there is little need for further proof. All of you who are believers in YHVH’s Word know that. If you have read this blog for any period of time you know how I live my life and how I encourage others to live an independent lifestyle. If you have been successful in relocating to a more rural environment your worries should be about canning the last of your produce, locating some more jars, running out of sugar for your jelly and maybe even getting in enough firewood for the winter. The last thing on our mind should be some tin pot dictator in North Korea or anywhere else for that matter.
For those of you who have lived under a communist regime or repressive dictator I can understand your concern that it may happen again. For those of you in Europe, being inundated with hostile immigrants I can definitely understand your concern for the safety and welfare of your family. Please, please, everyone put your faith in the Almighty. He is still in control and everything, and I mean everything, will work toward His glory.
Von and I are on the road and will not be home until the weekend after thanksgiving, but I want to offer everyone that I can a proposition. I have about 20+/- copies of the ISR 2009 Scriptures. I will offer them to anyone who writes me at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org . Please understand, I will try to be fair in the distribution of the scriptures. Please if you are interested send me an email and I will send you a request for your mailing address, that way you won’t compromise your mailing address unnecessarily.
Please understand Von and I are just 2 people and not a slick fancy corporation so it will take some time to get the time and funds to mail these out but we will get them done, I promise you. So, if you get a request for your address you will receive a Bible. These are in English so if you do not want or need an English version then do worry about it. We will try to get other versions in other languages. If you are interested let me know your language of choice and we will do our best to get you one, if they are available.
As we, in America, go into the Thanksgiving holiday please remember what we have to be thankful for and I am not talking about “THINGS”. I am talking about your family, loved ones, health, job but more than anything else I am talking about being thankful that we have a Father in heaven who loves us so much, that through the sacrifice of His Son, we can now enjoy a covenant relationship with our Father once again. Php 4:6 Do not worry at all, but in every matter, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Elohim.
Php 4:7 And the peace of Elohim, which surpasses all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Messiah יהושע.
1Jn 4:9 By this the love of Elohim was manifested in us, that Elohim has sent His only brought-forth Son into the world, in order that we might live through Him.
1Jn 4:10 In this is love, not that we loved Elohim, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be an atoning offering for our sins.
The epistles of John are a fun read, because they put our relationship with our Father in perspective. If you have time during the holiday, please read them. They are short but to the point and won’t take up much of your time
I would like to dedicate this article to Greg Hunter at https://usawatchdog.com/ who works tirelessly, or so it seems, to bring us real news with personalities that you read about in the Wall Street Journal or Bloomberg News. The reason I would like to dedicate it to him is that he always ends his weekly news wrap-up with “FEAR NOT!” Prepare yourself mentally, physically and above all spiritually, because God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ are firmly in charge.” In our world today that is truly comforting. Amen?!
Num 6:22 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 6:23 “Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ĕl. Say to them:
Num 6:24 “יהוה bless you and guard you;
Num 6:25 יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you;
Num 6:26 יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.” ’
Num 6:27 “Thus they shall put My Name on the children of Yisra’ĕl, and I Myself shall bless them.”
Shalom and Happy Thanksgiving,
