Brooklyn, New York In My Tractor/Trailer Rig

IMG_20170810_062301600.jpg

Imagine driving a 72 foot tractor/trailer rig through the heart of Brooklyn, New York. It is NOT for the faint of heart, because there is so much that can go wrong! You could easily destroy your truck by not noticing a low clearance sign. Some lanes are so narrow, that your 8’6″ wide trailer virtually touches the lane markings on both sides of the truck. Making turns in such a cramped city is challenging to say the least.

I had three things going for me from the beginning. #1 I prayed that the Almighty would help me. #2 I did my homework researching the matter. #3 I called the consignee/receiver for directions and advice.

I had picked up the load in Berea, Kentucky and was coming in toward New York City on I-78 through New Jersy. The receiver told me they would be there between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m, which was really good news to me, because the traffic would be much better at that early time in the morning. He advised me to take I-287 toward Staten Island.

What a beautiful time in the morning when the sun is coming up. In spite of all that man has built in NYC, there is still much natural beauty in the rivers, bays and Atlantic ocean. The Outer Bridge Crossing onto Staten Island cost me $105.00 to cross with my 18 wheeler. I reluctantly paid the attendant, ascended and the descended the tall bridge onto the island.

On that side of the bridge the road becomes Hwy-440 and I know that I am really all in now. I am off the mainland and at the mercy of New York City as it were. So far, the going is easy, and I travel for some 8-9 miles to I-278. I merge onto I-278 East with no problems, traveling for approximately 6 more miles to the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.

I ascend and descend once again across the tall bridge that separates the Lower Bay from the Upper Bay where the Statue of Liberty stands proudly in the harbor off to my left and far off in the distance. The bays are really gorgeous here in the morning light.

There is no turning back now and the going gets tougher. I am in Brooklyn, New York with my big truck! I had better not make any bad turns, because it could be disastrous. I carefully watch the signs, so as to stay on the correct road in the large interchange just onto Long Island. The interstate is elevated and I focus intensely on the signs looking for the 3rd Avenue exit. I spot the sign and make the exit easy enough.

I am now on a three-lane one-direction road that is separated from the three lanes going in the opposite direction. What separates the two are the supports for I-278 that is running above me. The interstate cross-girders jut out over 3rd Avenue on both sides, but there is enough clearance for my 13’6″ high trailer. I continue my journey past 61st street, 60th, 59th, 58th, down to: ah there it is up ahead, 45th street.

It gets really hairy now. Even this early in the morning, there are cars rushing around me from time to time, and I watch my mirrors carefully. The receiver told me that I could make a u-turn here no problem. Hmmmm. That sounds like something a New Yorker would say about these roads. I will have to turn across a lane or two just to make the tight square u-turn. I slow down waiting for that moment in time, when I can hog the whole road for my turn. The opportunity comes and I am going to make the turn from the center lane. I swing my tractor wide for the turn, placing my tractor squarely across the third lane, and stop to wait for the light to change from red to green. My trailer is still sitting in the center lane and no one can move forward in these two lanes, because my tractor and trailer have them both blocked.

The light finally changes to green and I continue to swing my tractor as wide as I can without hitting anything; and sure enough, my trailer just misses the steel girder that supports I-278. I am perpendicular to I-278, but down underneath, preparing to finish my u-turn onto 3rd Avenue headed in the opposite direction. Thankfully my trailer just misses the steel girder above my trailer and to the left. Phew! I am now in the first lane on the other side of I-278.

I scrutinize addresses carefully. Sure enough, just as the receiver told me, the forklift shop is just ahead a block and a half. As I pull up, a man glances up from the doorway where he is sitting and then looks back down at what he is doing. I pull up and pull my air brakes on right there in the first lane, because there is no where else to park. I get my paperwork and approach the man that glanced up at me. He is the right man, and he has been waiting for me. Nice. He tells me to pull up just a little more and I do. I pull the air brakes back on, step down out of my truck, move to the back and open the big doors.

I climb into the back of the trailer and begin to take off securement straps and hammer away the wooden blocks that are nailed into the floor to keep the forklifts from moving. While I am doing this, I notice someone moving a car hauler that has a sliding bed. He makes the automatic sliding bed go back and settle just onto and inside of my trailer, and fairly tightly between the doorposts. Wow! Perfect. Another man gets on the rear forklift, starts it up and drives it onto the car hauler. The other man is now on another forklift on the ground. He pulls forward under the new forklift and lifts it off the car hauler, backs up and lowers it to the ground. Well done! What a plan! Obviously they have done this before.

The first man is now on the second forklift inside my trailer and he struggles with this one for a minute before it goes on, but he succeeds once again in driving it out onto the car hauler. The second man on the ground repeats the process, and just like that, the two men finish unloading the two forklifts. They sign my paperwork and tell me to go up another block and a half, do another u-turn onto 3rd Avenue in the direction I was going orignally. Very good; I am ready to go after only about 20 minutes.

I climb back into the cab of my tractor and push off the air brakes. This is going really well; I think to myself. I pull up to the traffic light once again and make half the u-turn, once again missing the steel girder that supports I-278 and wait for the light to change. Several New Yorkers glance up. Who knows what they are thinking? The light changes and  once again I finish the u-turn; and sure enough, my trailer just misses the steel girder support for I-278. Good deal.

I head back down 3rd Avenue looking for the right entrance onto I-278, but there are three choices. I decide against the first road and am correct, but the signs do not seem to be placed well and I choose the wrong street. DANG! This is just what I did not want to do. I-278 is no longer elevated and I am riding above it instead of on it, where I wanted to be. This street is really small for trucks; in fact, I don’t think trucks go here. I do not panic, but I am deeply concerned. I am just missing the parked cars on my right, and the driver in the lane to the left is afraid to pull up by my truck, because the lanes are so small and cars close to each other.

We come to an intersection where the light is red. Thank you heavenly Father! I quickly pull up Google maps on my smartphone, carefully scrutinizing it for a way onto I-278. It looks like I can do it a couple of streets up and I pray for help. Making my way carefully down the tight 2-lane one-way street, I arrive at the intersection that I had found on the map. There was no way to continue going straight in a truck this big; but thankfully, it is the right place I was looking for. I swing wide to make my turn, while keeping an eye on anything high or low that I could hit. Woah! I am able to turn left and then right and merge onto I-278.

I worship Almighty YaHVeh right there in my truck for His goodness in helping me to not strand myself impossibly.

Evenso, I am not out of the woods yet. Traffic is getting more heavy. We move slowly down I-278. Have mercy on me! The overpass ahead has a sign saying 12’9″. My trailer is 13’6″. There is no way I am going to plow right under that. I throw a quick prayer up to heaven, while I brake and come to a stop right in the middle of I-278. I roll the window down and look up at my trailer. I can’t tell, so I release the air brake, ease up a little, pull the air brake back on and roll down passenger window and look up at the trailer. I still can’t tell. Amazingly, cars are patiently pulling around my truck and going on. I don’t hear horns honking. Once again I release the air brakes and pull up a little bit more, once again pulling on the air brake. Again, I get up and look out the passenger window. A big sigh of relief, because there seems to be just enough clearance under the overpass for my tractor/trailer rig. I release the air brakes again and pass right under the overpass without any problems. Whewy! That was nerve-racking, but a little bit exciting all at the same time. What kind of city puts a low clearance sign on an overpass with no explanation? Have mercy on me.

I am cruising along once again, and I notice the overpass ahead is arch shaped and has a sign of 12’9″ inches pointing at the right side corner of the overpass. Unfortunately, I am in the far right lane. I glance quickly into my mirror and thankfully no one is there in the lane to the left of me. I quickly swing the truck to the left into the middle lane, avoiding destroying the upper right corner of my trailer. Thank-you heavenly Father once again for rescuing me.

One more overpass is ahead with a low point on the right side, but I am able to stay away from that one easily. There is a nice view of the bay over to my left, with skyscrapers over there on Manhatten Island. I-485 junction comes up right away and I am relieved to be leaving Brooklyn. I deliver my last two forklifts to Ronkonkoma, New York some 60 miles out on Long Island without further incident. Traveling back to the west, I pay $46.00 to cross the Throggs Neck Bridge, merge onto I-95, travel maybe 6 miles, cross the north side of Manhatten Island, cross the George Washington Bridge and I am home free. Yay! I believe that is enough excitement for one day, er, month.

Proverbs 21:31, “The horse is prepared against the day of battle, but SAFETY is of the Lord.”

Almighty God has my back. HalleleuYaH!

Misuse Of Tithe

Photo of a Collection Plate

Christians need to hold their churches and pastors accountable for the proper use of tithes. Not all churches have this problem in the United States; however, many churches carelessly spend the Almighty’s tithe money.

It is a good thing to pay pastors reasonably well, so they can support their families properly; however, many churches pay lavish salaries to men who are not doing an excellent job in building the Kingdom of God. Taking this one step further, many churches have massive building projects that far exceed the need and benefit to the Kingdom of God. Both of these things are a serious liability to the Kingdom of God.

One church I attended was constantly asking for money, when the pastor was already receiving $100,000 dollars a year and maybe more including perks. This same Church had nice large buildings, but wanted to build bigger and nicer; even though, they were not yet to capacity. Most Sundays this same church had a sermonette before they took up the offering. They were constantly hammering and guilting the congregation to give even more. This same Church was loathe to show people the books on how monies were being spent. I boldly call this carelessness and unaccountability with the Almighty’s tithes and offerings and would say it to the face if given the opportunity. The Almighty does not give Church leaders a blank check with which to indulge themselves.

It is okay to preach once or twice a year about the importance and responsibility of giving. The Holy Bible does teach about tithing and supporting the work of the Kingdom of God; however, I am talking about the misuse of these monies.

Worldly people who are invited to be a part of our church services are oftentimes turned off to the church, because of begging for money and then trying to guilt everyone for not giving enough. Even many many Godly people tire of this way of operating and rightly so. Christ Himself talks about the disproportionate emphasis on tithing as compared to doing judgment, mercy and faith.

Matthew 23:23, “Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for you pay tithes of mint, anise and cummin and have ommited the weightier matters of the law: judgment, mercy and faith. These ought you to have done and not to leave the other undone.”

Nothing has changed from then until now it seems. Many church leaders are more worried about their congregation paying tithes, than they are in teaching the weighter matters of the Word of God. They may teach some on the weightier matters, but they go to great lengths to insure that the money keeps flowing into the church coffers. They are determined that the huge salaries continue to be paid and increased, and bigger and greater buildings are being built.

Let me tell you something: I am not going to support these types of ministries no matter how much they rant and rave against me. Supporting hard working ministries, that are working hard to properly spread the gospel and to properly build the Kingdom of God, is more important than their guilting sermons. I have been to third world countries, where the need is great and the work of the Church sure enough could use a helping hand from the wealthy Church in America.

I can almost hear some Church leaders saying: hey, we support missions. For those churches who are truly giving much to missions; I say, good for you! But know this, the Church as a whole in the United States is giving a very small percentage of what it takes in, to help our brothers and sisters in countries where there is severe lack.

Do not let your pastor guilt you about giving to very needy churches in poverty stricken areas. The Holy Bible teaches us to be good stewards. Don’t let your pastor tell you, that his Church is where all your tithes must go. I would insist on him CLEARLY showing Holy Bible truth for that assertion. I do not believe the Holy Bible teaches that and I invite them to be bold enough to reason this out with me personally face to face. I am well prepared to show them why they are wrong in this argument. Yes, we should give to the local work of the Church; however, the local Church is also obligated to rightly disperse of the tithe monies and not spend it wastefully. As far as I am concerned, if they are doing a horrible job in spending this money, then the people of that Church should give less there, and instead support the work of the Kingdom of God where it is being used wisely. If your pastor then tells you, that you should go down the road and find a different church, you let it go in one ear and out the other. Pastors too will give an account of how they disperse the tithes, that are meant for the work of the Kingdom of God.

Jeremiah 23:2, “Therefore, thus saith YaHVeH God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people: you have scattered My flock and driven them away and have not visited them. Behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings says the LORD.”

If your pastor and Church do a good job in dispersing the tithes, then be sure and help them out with your tithes and offerings. I am not teaching to be troublemakers; however, I am fearlessly teaching you to be wise to honor the Almighty with your tithes and offerings, even when your Church and pastor are being careless with the people’s tithes and offerings. Do not be afraid. Almighty God knows your heart.

Careless Church

Image result for images  dove with raven

Many pastors are in it for the money and are collecting massive lucrative salaries from the Church. Numerous pastors seem to be clueless as to the proper role of a shepherd. The spreading of the gospel often takes a back seat to buildings and salaries. A large percentage of churches prioritize the collection of tithes over more important matters of the Kingdom of God. The Church has gone soft on sin to the extent, that sometimes you can scarcely tell the difference between the Church and the world. To a large extent, the Church has become a worldly organization, with a righteous facade to hide its shame. Too often there is an absence of the anointing and power from on high.

The Church is not a building, a collections agency, a club, or an organization. It is the Body and Bride of Christ. The Body of Christ is made up of believers, that have separated themselves from worldliness, and are in the process of building a closer and closer relationship with the Father and the Son.

While we are commanded to assemble ourselves together with other believers, most of the biblical work of a Christian is done outside the walls of the Church building. We are to love our wives and husbands and children in our homes. We are to visit the fatherless and widows. We are to feed the hungry and give drink to the thirsty. We are to take a genuine interest in strangers. We are to clothe the naked. We are to visit the sick and in prison. We are to do justice and love mercy and walk humbly. We are to train our children in the ways of Almighty God. We are to love our fellow man.

Concerning our Church meetings, the Church building is a place to worship the Creator corporately with other believers. It is to encourage and be encouraged to continue to maintain our faith in Christ and to continue the work of the Kingdom of God. It is a place to give testimony to the goodness of the Creator. It is a place to hear preaching and teaching and a word from the Almighty.

Mark 11:17, “And He taught saying unto them: Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but you have made it a den of thieves.”

The word prayer here comes from a Greek word that implies “oratory chapel”. The Church building is a place for speaking words of prayer, worship, encouragement, admonition, Godly rebuke, teaching, preaching, testimony, etc. It is to  be filled with words that bring honor to Almighty God. When you leave Church; you should have a sense of having met with Almighty God and His people. You should have a sense of the eternal, and a determination to move forward in the cause of Christ and the Kingdom of Almighty God. You should sense an increase in zeal to live the life of Christ out in the world during the week.

While the Church is doing a little bit of these things; it needs to get back to being the Church. Churches are not supposed to spend their time trying to entertain people so that they will come back. The Church must be, and do, what the Almighty intended; or else, it is little more than a worldly organization that on the outside appears to be pious, but on the inside leaves much to be desired.

Wake up Church and be what you are supposed to be.

Ephesians 5:27, “That He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish.”

Warning Mr.President Trump

Image result for images Trump Netanyahu

President Trump sir, the Holy Bible warns against dividing the land of Israel. You do not want to be among that number, who is determined to appease the Palestinians and others, by giving some of Israel’s land to them. The Almighty is going to make war against the nations of the world for mistreating Israel and dividing their land.

Joel 3:2, “I will also gather all nations and bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat. I will execute judgment with them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and divided My land.”

Mr. President, you have done a good job so far, and you want to keep it that way. You seem to have a good heart and also a love for Christians and Jews, and I salute you for that. Please consider, that Almighty God gave us the Holy Bible through the nation of Israel. Please consider, that Almighty God brought Jesus the Savior into the world through the nation of Israel. The people of Israel were miraculously able to preserve their identity as a people for over 1800 years of exile from the land of Israel. Almighty God has in recent times returned them to their promised land.

The leaders and nations of the world, along with the God-forsaken United Nations, continue to pursue a worldly peace at the expense of Israel. It SEEMS honorable to give the Palestinians some of the land to live on as well, BUT it is not honorable, because Almighty God specifically gave it to Israel as an eternal possession. The Creator did not want the Palestinians to have it or He would have given it to them. Genesis 28:10-13, Genesis 35:12, Genesis 48:4

You are good at making deals Mr. President and you have said that a deal for peace between Israel and the Palestinians would be the ultimate deal; however, dividing the land of Israel is not pleasing to Almighty God. The Almighty has already made Jesus the Savior available to all men and nations including the Palestinians and that is more than enough. Furthermore, Almighty God has left the rest of the land to other nations like Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Persia, Turkey, and the Arabs of the Arabian peninsula. Check the maps Mr. President: the land the Almighty gave to Israel is very small compared to these other lands and it is not fitting that the Palestinians should have some of Israel. Let the Islamic nations show kindness to the Palestinians in sharing their massive holdings with the Palestinians.

Mr. President, I encourage you to continue to be a good friend to Israel and help them to fully possess all the land that Almighty God gave to them between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. Mr. President, please do not become guilty of dividing Israel’s land like so many other leaders both past and present. Almighty God honors those who honor Him.

First Samuel 2:30, “Them that honor Me; I will honor, and they that despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.

My Experience In a Filipino Church

 

Image may contain: 23 people, people smilingI have visited the Philippines nine different times now, and I want to share my experience with one small Christian Church there. It is located in a suburb of the greater Manila area known as Taguig.

You need to know, that Manila is a very modern city in lots of ways; however, much of the greater Manila area is noticeably Third-World. Taguig is just such a place. Our cab exited off a very modern highway and we looped around to the left onto a lesser artery. Shortly thereafter, we turned to the right onto a smaller street, that goes immediately into an area of Fort Bonifacio. The cabbie has just enough room to turn around as we pay him 100 pesos.

We have to go on foot the rest of the way, for there is scarcely room down the pathway for two people to walk side by side. The very small homes are built right against each other on both the right side and the left so that they literally touch with no space in between. Various homes along the way have bars over an opening to the pathway with items for sale: including canned goods, crackers, coke, fresh meat laying out without refrigeration or even the loading of airtime for cellular phones.   A young boy greets us with a smile as he and his friends try to make conversation with us. Small vendors wonder if we will buy something from them along the way. My wife wants a coke and we give them twelve pesos ($0.25).

We turn left down another corridor and then left up a narrow concrete stairway.  We turn right into a room with concrete block walls, a concrete floor and a makeshift roof. It is perhaps 12 feet x 22 feet more or less.

My wife  knows a few of the people and they greet us enthusiastically. Soon worship begins and this is what I really want to talk to you about. These people, that have very little by American standards, sing joyfully from the bottom of their heart with all that is in them. They are so thankful and grateful to the Almighty for all that He has done for them. It makes tears come to my eyes even now as I write to you. They have an electric piano and a couple of guitars and a homemade drum.The very presence of Almighty God fills the room where we are, as Almighty God inhabits the praises of His people. This has to be a little bit like it is in heaven. There is scripture reading, testamonies, prayer and the pastor delivers an impassioned sermon under the influence of the Holy Spirit.

After church is over, some of the youth sing another song and another. It is very unusual in my thinking, and I am so impressed with how much they love YaHshua Jesus. Like I said, the service is already over, but they continue to worship on their own. The pastor has trained the youth to play instruments and do music. They are more mature-in-Christ than your average American. The adults and youth alike are such wonderful people. They share some food and kool-aid-like drinks and the fellowship is so good, that almost everyone hangs around for a long time. The people of the church literally treat me like a celebrity, making me feel like an important man.

You can tell that these people are genuine. There are no padded pews, no Sunday School rooms, no carpet, no air conditioner, no fancy pulpit, no nice bathroom. They are a very tight-knit group. The pastor makes little to no money for the work he does with the church, but he spends lots and lots of time doing the work, and many souls have come to Christ. The youth group is large and full of life from on high. My heart leaps for joy just worshipping with them and it is glorious being just a small part of people who love our Savior so very much. I don’t really want to share their names for fear that I would leave some of them out. They are precious souls to me and I am proud to be associated with these more-than-conquerors.

We are so spoiled in the United States, and I have to say, that I believe they are better off than we are. We have a lot more material things, but are we spiritually naked and blind? Have we lost our first love? Are we lukewarm? Do we think we have need of nothing? These are just a few of the questions we need to be asking ourselves. If life in the U.S. became like the life in third-world countries, would we still go to church? Would we still serve Almighty God? Would we still have the joy of our God in our hearts?

Hillary’s Catholic VP Kaine Attacks God

Image result for images Tim KaineHillary Clinton’s Vice-Presidential candidate Tim Kaine has chosen sides against Almighty God. He has mischaracterized YaHVeH in a most unholy fashion.

Adulterers and adultresses, know you not that fondness of the world is hostility with God? therefore, whosoever will be associates of the worldly is the enemy of God. James 4:4

Tim Kaine is promoting the LGBT lifestyle as if it is acceptable to Almighty God. Check out this link:      http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/tim-kaine-catholic-church-gay/2016/09/11/id/747661/      Tim Kaine is fond of the idea, that the Catholic Church may accept the homosexual lifestyle. Let me be 100% clear here: It is IMPOSSIBLE to be buddies of LGBT and at the same time be the friend of Almighty God. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE!

I do not hate homosexuals. I have worked for homosexuals before, and some of them are really likable; however, I do hate homosexuality. Sodom and Gomorrah were burnt to toast because of this unholy practice. Genesis 18:20- 19:29 I do not want to see America destroyed because of these same unholy practices.

Do not call yourself a friend of Almighty God, if you vote for people like Hillary, Obama, Tim Kaine and others like them. If these are the type of people you are fond of, then you have become an enemy of Almighty God. I am not suggesting, that you have to vote for Donald Trump because of this, because Donald Trump condones some of this same stuff.

America is inviting endless trouble and calamity upon itself. The increase of all sorts of problems, including global warming, are directly linked to turning our backs on Almighty God.

Please Tim Kaine, I call upon you to repent of this unholy position and turn back to Almighty God while there is still time.

Earth One Million Years Before Adam And Eve

tumblr_mxpm6v8DEJ1qbmgeto3_1280There is strong evidence in the Holy Bible, that the earth is much much older than 6000 years.

Read Genesis 1:1-2, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was without form and void . . . . . ”

I invite you to get out your Holy Bible and read over this passage again and again. It is real easy to pass right over it. Question: Does Almighty God create anything without form and void? Question #2: How did the earth become without form and void? Question #3 How is created water there before Genesis 1:3, if the earth is only 6000 years old?

Let me say right here: I do not believe in evolution one little bit, so don’t assume that my points here are an offspin of someone else’s teachings

The Hebrew word for “without form” is tohu and it is from an unused root meaning “to lie waste”; a desolation of surface, i.e. desert; figuratively a worthless thing; adverbially in vain.

The Hebrew word for “void” is bohu and it is from an unused root meaning “to be empty”; a vacuity, i.e. (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin.

In Genesis 1:1 Almighty God created the heavens and the earth. In Genesis 1:2 the earth is tohu and bohu. Apparently some dreadful calamity took place between verse one and verse two, leaving the earth in ruins. Notice also in verse two, that the earth is apparently covered with water and darkness. Apparently the earth lay in ruins under the deep waters.

01-fall-rebelRevelation 12:7-9 talks about a war in the heaven. The word heaven in the Greek is “ouranos” and it means “the sky, heaven, air”. Apparently this war took place above the earth in the atmosphere and outer space and perhaps all the way to the gates of heaven as it were. This passage tells us, that Michael the archangel and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels. The dragon is also known as the old serpent, the Devil and Satan. Michael prevailed. Satan and his angels were cast out into the earth.

Could it be that the craters on the moon are from this war? Could it be that the earth’s axis is tilted as a result of this war? Could it be that the dinosaurs died in this war? Could it be that all of the mysteries that puzzle scientists concerning the age of the earth, prehistoric man, and an instant ice-age are all answered in this war? Could it be that the earth was without form and void because of this war? OF COURSE IT COULD BE!war_in_heaven_by_wes_talbott-d52ju5k

Execute The White Boy

imagesDylann Roof age 21 allegedly confessed to the killing of 9 black people at a church in South Carolina. Whoever killed these black folks committed cold blooded murder.

Please take a careful look at Numbers 35:33, “So you shall not pollute the land wherein you are, for blood it defiles the land. The land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him (the murderer) that shed it.”

Notice, that when innocent blood is shed, it pollutes the land. Unless the murderer is executed for his crime, the land remains polluted, but if the murderer is executed, then justice is served and a new beginning can commence as it were.

When Cain killed Abel in Genesis chapter 4, Almighty God said to Cain, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries unto me from the ground.”

Consider this my friends: The voice of the blood of these nine precious black souls cries unto Almighty God from the ground. Their blood demands justice. The only thing that will make it right is the execution of the one who sat and plotted and premeditated their murders. It does not matter what the public thinks. It doesn’t matter what the families think. It doesn’t matter what politicians think. It doesn’t matter what the killer thinks. It doesn’t matter what the President thinks. Justice demands the death of the murderer. That and only that will make it right, because this is the way of Almighty God, and His ways are altogether righteous and holy.

Notice the last very important passage in Ecclesiastes, “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily; therefore, the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.”

The true deterrent to evil is punishing the evildoer swiftly. Of course we should be careful to make sure we do not punish an innocent man; however, the moment it is a known fact of who committed the crime, soon thereafter the sentence should be carried out. I believe a murderer should be given a priest/preacher and 24 hours to make peace with the Creator, and then that person should be executed without delay. Then and only then will men fear to do evil. If it is a known fact that Dylann Root killed those nine valuable black souls, then he should already be executed as a public example, so that men will be afraid to do such things.

Whoever says this is barbarian and inhumane, does not take the Almighty seriously. Whoever disagrees apparently does not believe that man has a fallen nature, that can only be tamed by means prescribed by Almighty God. After 6000 years of trying everything else, mankind has not solved the dilemma of man’s bent toward evil, but the Almighty’s remedy is effective. I myself am a white man, but justice must be color blind.

Say The Name YaHVeH

images (26)Every single time you inhale and then exhale, you utter the name YaHVeH. When you inhale, you utter the syllable YaH, and when you exhale, you utter the syllable VeH. It seems that the breath of life mentioned in Genesis chapter two is none other than Almighty God’s name. This actually makes perfect sense, seeing that His name is life. When Almighty God formed Adam out of the dust of the ground, He puffed into Adam’s nostrils the breath of life and Adam became a living soul. It is fascinating to consider, that the words breath, life and spirit all seem to come together here.   In the Hebrew Bible (Christian Old Testament) Almighty God’s name is revealed as YHVH. In Hebrew the letters are yod hay vav hay written from right to left. YHVH has come to be called the Tetragrammaton or the four letters. Since ancient Hebrew did not have written vowels, it is not known for sure what the vowels are. It is generally accepted that The Name is YaHVeH or YaHWeH. When you see the word LORD all in caps in the Holy Bible, it is the name YHVH. There was such a fear of misusing The Name, that they decided to not put The Name in the places where LORD is completely capitalized.

James 2:26 says, “The body without the spirit is dead.” This Greek word “spirit” means blast of air, breath or breeze. Apparently our spirit and our breath are synonymous. When we breathe our last breath, then our spirit leaves our body and our body dies. Ecclesiastes 12:7 says, “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” The spirit is a part of Almighty God, that was breathed into Adam at the first, and it returns to Almighty God who gave it. Fascinating! That breath or spirit or life given to man does not cease, but returns to the Creator. Not only are we made in the image of Almighty God, but the Almighty placed a part of Himself in us.

Think about this. One of the ten commandments is: Thou shalt not take the name of YaHVeH your God in vain. Since we say the name YaHVeH every time we inhale and exhale, could it be, that if we misuse His name, it will somehow harm our respiratory system? I don’t know for sure, but it most certainly is p0ssible.

And think about this: In Psalms 68:4 we find the name YaH (JaH in the KJV), which is the short form of the name YaHVeH. Many Hebrew names use this short form YaH or iah; such as, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Jedidiah, Azariah, Zechariah, Obadiah, etc. The name Jesus is from the Hebrew word Yahshua or Joshua. The name Yahshua (Joshua) simply means: YaH is salvation. How perfect and beautiful that Yahshua Jesus’ name is who He really is: our salvation. This is no accident. The angel of the Lord informed Yahshua Jesus’ earthly father Joseph, that he was to name the child Jesus (Yahshua), for He would save His people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21) Yahshua Jesus has the short form of the name of His heavenly Father stamped into His name: YaHshua.

images (11)Have you ever noticed how entertainers, actors, academia, college students, tree-huggers, nature lovers and many more preach adamantly about peace? I want to explain to you why they are talking about a subject, that they virtually know nothing about. #1 How can good triumph over evil without war? Do you really believe that evil will simply see the light and lay down their hatred along with their weapons? Really? It is ludicrous and naive to think so. Evil is neither complacent nor docile. Evil is an imposer. It aggressively and gleefully imposes itself on the weak and innocent. Evil understands nothing except brute force. Evil refuses to submit without extreme aggression. This is a fact of life that has always been there, and it always will be there in the world in which we now live. #2 The source of conflict is not comprehended by the peaceniks. There is a war going on in the heavenlies and it is played out in the earthly realm. You cannot solve a problem with band-aid therapy; you must go to the root of the problem if you are going to stand any chance at all of resolving it. Eons ago Almighty God created the mighty angels. He also created a being named Lucifer. Lucifer was created perfect and good, as is everything the Almighty creates, but the Almighty also gave Lucifer the power of choice. At some point Lucifer chose to rebel against the Great Creator and convinced one third of the angelic host to follow him in this conspiracy. There was war in the heavens and Lucifer was defeated. He was cast down to the earth for an appointed time. Later, the Almighty created mankind and put them in the Garden of Eden, knowing full well that Lucifer/Satan would tempt them to also rebel against Almighty God. Adam and Eve foolishly gave ear to Satan’s deceit and sinned against the Almighty. The result of their sin was this: Adam and Eve died spiritually speaking. They did not die physically that day, although they were cursed with the concept of physical death in their future; however, a fallen nature (sin nature) came upon them and their descendants from that day and forward. This is that root problem of which I spoke earlier. The root of ALL conflict in our world is mankind’s struggle between following the voice of his fallen-nature and Satan, O – – – R, following the voice of Almighty God. Contrary to what so many false teachers are saying out there, man is not inherently good. Man is inherently evil. This does not mean that man never does anything right, but it does mean that he is ridiculously inclined to do what is wrong. There is only one true, genuine, enduring, unfailing, overcoming, satisfying, chain smashing, captive delivering peace and it comes through knowing Christ Yahshua Jesus. All other attempts at peace, whether well-intentioned or not, are bogus and doomed to failure. The real conflict is between Almighty God the lover of your soul, and Satan the hater of everything good. #3 Many millions foolishly dismiss the validity of the Holy Bible and turn to their own puny logic to save themselves. Mere mortals are not capable of giving themselves eternal life and it is pure folly to think so. Every one dies and every one will face the Almighty on the judgement day. If you refuse to accept Yahshua Jesus as Savior and Lord, then you my friend are willfully engaging in the largest conflict you could possibly imagine. Many of the peaceniks act so pious and above the fray; but in reality, they are the most adamant warmongers to be found. They say, “Peace, peace”, while raising a mighty sword in opposition to the One who made them. They speak of tolerance, while demanding that you leave your principles behind. I am not fooled by their double-speak, and I encourage you to open your eyes to their sweet-sounding, unbending hatred for the Great Creator. Their peace is a seductive peace that leads to destruction. Peace, peace: yeah right! Their peace is conceived in deceit and rebellion, but outwardly they appear to be such fine examples. How very sad! (Romans 3:17 The way of peace have they not known.) The world is full of people clamoring for peace, while leaving out the main ingredient, the Prince of Peace Yahshua Jesus, who would gladly forgive them and set them free.
