God won’t help you defend your false doctrine!!

Christendom committing Hara-Kiri over the Respect for Marriage Act is well deserved.

The culture war is reaching fever pitch! Even in secular outlets, there is heated discussion about masculinity, feminism, patriarchy, #redpill, #MGTOW, and a thousand related topics. Everyone agrees that something is radically wrong and if it isn’t fixed soon we are going to not just lose a generation or two, we will lose humanity!

Megan Basham, culture reporter for The Daily Wire and contributor to The Federalist, authored When Christian Leaders Capitulate On Marriage, Innocent Children Suffer. While she never really gets to the ‘innocent children suffer’ part, which is true, Ms. Basham displays in spades why Christian culture is in total collapse.

One of the earliest signs that the commitment to defend biblical marriage was weakening came from Christianity Today CEO Timothy Dalrymple. 

News flash! What Christians typically assume is ‘biblical’ concerning marriage is actually tradition! Or, in my family’s oft quoted wordmash from my eldest, ‘Tradishma!!’ Simply, what is usually termed ‘traditional marriage’ is entirely that: TRADITION.

Biblical marriage‘ is entirely different than what Ms. Basham thinks it is!

And, therein is the reason why God won’t help defend this particular doctrine. Several years ago, I wrote

Died Suddenly….

We watched Died Suddenly this evening after Shabbat.

https://rumble.com/v1wac7i-world-premier-died-suddenly.html

While the overall information is not new, the compilation is heartbreaking. Interestingly, before our Shabbat fellowship started, we had a good discussion on current events, eschatology, etc… we agreed that the confluence of events places us squarely in apocalyptic times.

Our concensus was that we need to be heads up, eyes wide open. We are already in it and tptb are in too deep to delay or back up at this point. It is game on until one side or the other wins.

We know who wins. Yeshua! No head in sand. No holding back. Time to march forward listening for our King’s direction. We are  that generation.

Died Suddenly was a massive exclamation point to our discussion. Global depopulation is underway. More similar attacks will be coming. Pray. Plan. Prepare.

Two Federalist Articles Calling for Men to Be Real Men

The Federalist website posts commentary on the news and politics of the day. Recently, they posted two pieces on the “masculinity crisis” and the large number of unmarried women voting against their own interests out of fear. Whether knowingly or not, both men are calling for the return of the patriarchy, marriage and the subsequent destruction of radical leftist feminist ideology.

The first article is written by Casey Chalk and titled “Men Need Restoration, Not Leftist Ridicule, To Fix Our Modern Masculinity Crisis“.

The second article is written by Christian Winter and titled “How Conservative Men Can Help Solve The GOP’s Single Women Problem“.

Two Brides, One Stone. A Teaching.

God clearly portrays Himself as having two brides in multiple passages of Scripture. Why? What is His purpose? Can we learn anything from the life of Jacob and history to understand prophecy and Yah’s self portrayal?

Inheritance

I am often enthralled with the minute details that formulate the entire picture or system by which we SHOULD observe and follow.  Rarely do I think that we see the trees through the forest and I can understand why.

However, on Shabbat, it’s time to dig deep, and as a random thought crosses my mind, I take the time to meditate on it for a few minutes.  Let’s talk about one of many that happened to me today.

In Matthew chapter 5, we have a speech known best in Christendom as “The Beatitudes”. In verse 9 we have the beatitude  which states, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called Sons of God”.

Why did this stick out to me, you might ask.  Well, he didn’t say “Peacekeepers”, he said “Peacemakers”. I often remember pastors telling us that we should be peaceful then somehow applied this to turning the other cheek.  But that’s not what it says.  Peacekeepers maintain existing peace, and that’s not what he is talking about…not even a little bit.

Imagine with me, if you will, unrelenting chaos.  Are those who run away the ones he calls Sons?  Seems unlikely.  In a masculine patriarchal faith where we have a Father who is in heaven, not a heavenly mother, I cannot imagine the picture of peacemaking one which causes cowardice.

Jeremiah 9 and the Revelation

In a threaded discussion the other day, someone cited Jeremiah 7, but I inadvertently turned to chapter 9 and read,

115 therefore thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, “behold, I will feed them, this people, with wormwood and give them poisoned water to drink. 16 I will scatter them among the nations, whom neither they nor their fathers have known; and I will send the sword after them until I have annihilated them.”

Jeremiah 9

A phrase leapt off the page and I had to consider a possible connection with the book of Revelation.

I’ve long known that the prophecies in the latter part of Scripture cannot be understood apart from their context, namely the Torah and the Prophets. Here is another example. Let’s dive in.

Will Israel take a leap of faith?

This week’s elections results have been markedly different than the last five elections and a probable break from the last several decades. The really BIG question is whether Israel has the faith to really step into their destiny.

For decades, Israel has tried to mollify the Religious Right while pandering to the Left in an attempt to maintain a peaceful center that ultimately makes no one happy and leaves the nation drifting ever farther from trusting their Elohim and His promises. Yet, the prophets still speak! And, the Words of Moshe are still true!

The last few weeks have been an exhilarating rollercoaster watching the campaigning as leftists, even in Israel, screamed that a religious government will be the downfall of the nation. All the while, parties desirous of a much more “Jewish” (read: Torah centric) approach to government have been gaining ground until the dam burst at the ballot box sweeping in a solidly religious conservative majority.

Itamar Ben-G’vir, ultra right candidate and head of the Otzma Yehudit, now leads the third most powerful group in the Knesset and has enough clout to be a factor in every decision Benyamin Netanyahu, the returning Prime Minister, will make. As evidence, Ben-G’vir has lit the hair of liberals and leftists across the globe on fire!!

With the globe on the verge of implosion into war, famine, and economic reset chaos, it suddenly appears that Israel is tacking away from the direction of the global system!

Over and over in Scripture, the Almighty promises that He will cover and protect Israel when they walk in His ways and trust HIM!! Maybe, just maybe, the incoming government government of Israel will look to the prophets and to the Elohim of Avraham, Itzahk, and Ya’acov and seek to walk in HIS ways rather than trust in their own cunning, strength, and abilities.

And, my secret hope is that as they walk in faith, they will look to those who love the Elohim of Avraham, Itzahk, and Ya’acov and are walking in the Torah and see us as brothers that only desire to walk in unity with Judah!! Maybe, just maybe, this leap of faith and trust in Hashem and His promises to them will open the door for us to see the return of Ephraim, also promised by the prophets!

Welcome to Israel! HalleluYAH!

If you had told me 6 months ago that I was going to Israel for Sukkot, I would have laughed and said, “I wish that were possible.” Yet, by the mercy and grace of our King and according to His riches, He provided a way for me to go. It was a very last minute decision (bought the plane tickets 3 weeks before I left) yet I was excited. Although I had never been to Israel and never flown overseas, the joy and overwhelming excitement was beaming. My previous fear of flying over the ocean was non-existent as I knew in my heart that I was going to make it to Israel safely. I had a “schedule” in my mind what I wanted to do however, that was thrown out the window when I got to Israel. It was the trip and adventure of a lifetime and one that will be done again and again (Abba willing). Following are the details of my experience in Israel.

I arrived in Israel on October 6th just after 6 p.m. As I was walking down the ramp from the airplane to the airport, I noticed pictures and Hebrew with English translation on the walls. One of the sayings on the wall said, “Welcome to Israel. Your life will never be the same.” When I saw that, in my heart I wanted that. I wanted to be changed and be different. I wanted to meet with Yah in His land and have both His land and Yah place a strong imprint on my life. And, Abba Yah did not disappoint! He came through in amazing ways while I was there!

Individualism v Restoration of kol Israel

Does Western Individualism prevent or even work against the restoration of kol Israel?

This morning I popped open my email and found a pingback to a Σ Frame article titled Pandora’s Pendulum. The short article, originally published months ago, began,

One observant post, Is the Pendulum Effect caused by Western Individualism? (2020-10-9) described how the spirit of Western Individualism tempts people to separate themselves from the past and from tradition.  This results in a metaphysical oscillation of political, social, and fashion trends from one extreme to the other.  The pendulum effect is disruptive, spurious, and wasteful, thereby revealing Individualism to be an evil spiritual influence that upsets both the peace within the human soul and the shalom of a society.

The carnage and destruction caused by Individualism and the Pendulum Effect has gone on full display since the Dobbs v. Jackson decision on June 24,…

I had to dig a little more and read the context article linked in the quote and fireworks were exploding in my head.

The Cure for LGBTQ+…

To destroy a nation, one must destroy the foundations. Conversely, to build/strengthen a nation, the foundations must be (re)built/strengthened.

Following is an excellent article that spells out from yet another voice/vantage point that any nation that builds Yah’s authority structure righteously will succeed. I.e., for Israel to be restored we MUST embrace, walk, teach Yah’s authority structure! Complementarianism and egalitarianism are paths to failure and judgment! Torah teachers and leaders, PAY ATTENTION! And, dear reader, if your teachers or leaders are teaching equalitarian garbage, warn them then dust your shoes and move on!

Restoration Requires Father-Rule

A final note, while the author correctly identifies the context of Galatians 3:28, he misses the fact that Paul is drawing from Exodus, as noted here.

At least the Catholics are honest…

When I first started studying Shabbat, I was a bit shocked at how brazen the Catholics were with claiming that the change to Sunday was their own invention. Here’s another, even better…

On Catholic.com, in an articulate post titled The Protestant’s Problem with Polyamory, author Douglas M. Beaumont not only clearly and succinctly states that the Bible does not condemn polygamy but actually seems to condone it. But, he goes further and declares that without tradition there is no defense against it. Hilarious!! Torah ‘teachers’ need to take note!

Read for yourself, then laugh at the white knights chasing their tails as they breathlessly try to prove that polygyny is a sin.

Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it.

Deu. 12:32

Even the Catholics know that the Protestant ‘traditional marriage’ position is indefensible from Scripture and is rooted in the ‘church fathers.’
