Old tigers, sensing the end, they’re at their most fierce. ((The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) by Allan Quartermain (Sean Connery))
I apologize for my absence from this site for so long. As I mentioned in my last article, “If no one gets stupid” the war in Ukraine would have been over in a month, three at most. I apologize for my lack of faith in the stupidity of the people in Washington, D.C.
No, I have been preoccupied with more urgent matters: 1) I became the primary care giver for my then 100 year old mother, who is now 101 years old, and 2) I have been diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma, which is a type of cancer. Mom is now in a memory care facility and I am sick and tired of being poked, prodded, stabbed and tested. Like many of my brother veterans I got killed in Southeast Asia and just now found out about it.
This NOTE is not about me per se, it is about the future of our nation and of course, cycles. We are currently in a very strong cycle, how strong, I cannot say for sure because I have done no calculations. Expect things to get very crazy toward the end of June and into the first week of July. I honestly expected things to get really crazy last weekend but by the Grace of the Almighty, it didn’t. This weekend was a time of serious reflection and even repentance for me.
From now through October 2024 I am looking for the world, but especially America, to go off the rails, over the guardrails and into the raging river below. At the same time I see economic calamity on the horizon, I also see war coming to our shores. Earthquakes are increasing around the world and will continue to do so until October of 2024 when they could peak. I will say Positively Maybe.
What happens in October 2024 is nothing catastrophic, I don’t know of any asteroids coming our way but, outside influences, coming from our own solar system, will reach a plateau and could further diminish our protective electromagnetic field that protects us from harmful types of solar and cosmic radiation.
Have you noticed that it seems like crazy things are happening all the time? That is because those who are affected most by the incoming radiation are losing their grip and are becoming more animalistic, devoid of reason and emotion.
This past weekend was the epitome of stupid when Senator Lindsey Graham went to Ukraine and bragged that the money we gave Ukraine is Killing Russians, “The best money we have ever spent.” He is completely insane, a psychopath. The Russians have killed many more times Ukrainians than Ukraine’s Nazi forces have killed Russians. Make no mistake about it Russia will either take Ukraine or nuke Europe and the U.S. They cannot allow NATO to get into Ukraine. This is the same gambit that brought us to the very edge of nuclear war in 1962, The Cuban Missile Crisis. I remember the Duck and Cover drills if you don’t.
If you think that Robert Kennedy, Jr., Ron De Santis or Donald Trump will win the election in November 2024 and ride into Washington, D.C. (District of Clowns) on a white horse and save the Republic, just in the nick of time, go back to sleep and try waking up in the real world next time. No, we are going to have to fight this one out.
What am I going to do? I going to continue to study and teach Torah, YHVH’s Word, and Scripture in general. I’m also taking my favorite FAL out of the closet and I’m going to take it apart, oil it and keep it close. My 1911 is right here next to my left knee and it is oiled. Wipe some of the dust off the cases of ammy-ni-shun for both.
Know this: I am not suicidal and I do not believe in looking for trouble. I will protect my family and my property. But if someone comes looking for trouble, this old tiger is going to FIGHT!!!
Having said that, I plan on living out my allotted days in peace and quiet. This is a sabbatical year and I am looking forward to the blessings that I am currently seeing in my garden to increase in the coming months as Von and I are obedient to YHVH’s Commands. For Sukkot this year, since it is a sabbatical year, we will read Torah before the whole community like we did in 2016. It may be just me and Von but we are going to do it. Deu 31:9 And Mosheh wrote this Torah and gave it to the priests, the sons of Lěvi, who bore the ark of the covenant of יהוה, and to all the elders of Yisra’ěl.
Deu 31:10 And Mosheh commanded them, saying, “At the end of seven years, at the appointed time, the year of release, at the Festival of Sukkot,
Deu 31:11 when all Yisra’ěl comes to appear before יהוה your Elohim in the place which He chooses, read this Torah before all Yisra’ěl in their hearing.
Folks, this is not a political battle so politics won’t work. Not only are they a false hope. they are an invention of mankind and therefore evil. This is a SPIRITUAL BATTLE and in any spiritual battle you need the Word of Elohim: Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim.
Joh 1:2 He was in the beginning with Elohim.
I will leave you with this quote from the Apostle Sha’ul: Eph 6:10 For the rest, my brothers, be strong in the Master and in the mightiness of His strength.
Eph 6:11 Put on the complete armour of Elohim, for you to have power to stand against the schemes of the devil.
Eph 6:12 Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies.
Eph 6:13 Because of this, take up the complete armour of Elohim, so that you have power to withstand in the wicked day, and having done all, to stand.
Eph 6:14 Stand, then, having girded your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
Eph 6:15 and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace;
Eph 6:16 above all, having taken up the shield of belief with which you shall have power to quench all the burning arrows of the wicked one.
Eph 6:17 Take also the helmet of deliverance, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of Elohim,
Eph 6:18 praying at all times, with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, watching in all perseverance and supplication for all the set-apart ones;
