Verse of the Week
The crown has fallen from our head. Woe now to us, for we have sinned!
Thought for the Week
There can be little doubt that the US, as a political entity, has rejected YHWH and His ways. Sadly it seems that most US citizens concur with this rejection. You reap what you sow. As the US as a nation and a people turn their face away from YHWH it is also becoming evident that YHWH is reciprocating and turning His face from them.
It is not just the morals that are in shambles. Secularly the work ethic is pathetic and the economy reflects it. The US was once an industrial powerhouse but is now a mere shadow of its former self. The physical resources are still available; the will to employ them is not. The people, as a whole, have surrendered their will, not to YHWH as He asks, but to a tyrannical welfare state Government.
Though the children of YHWH knew that peace was never possible with any man made government is all hope for the US as a nation lost? No. The US may have previously brought prosperity to many but it has never brought peace anyway. History does not regress but it often repeats itself. If the US were to experience a second civil war, a second revolution, perhaps there would be secular hope for freedom; but, without turning back to YHWH the outcome will be more of the same.
These United States are no longer united by a people who share common morals and purpose. Since the last civil war the US has exchanged a bond of choice for a bond by force. As the Government grows the people continue to lose choice to force. Satan knows that choices and free will are dangerous. It is by freedom of choice that the number of followers of YHWH grows. It is by force that Satan wishes to suppress this growth.
The choices the US Government is satisfied with leaving with the people is much the same as the choices allowed by ISIS - convert to our way of thinking or suffer the consequences. The people are "free" to choose between which evil they are more willing to practice. ISIS wants allegiance to Allah only. The US Government is not as harsh as they will allow allegiance to Allah or to man - just not to YHWH!
It has been said that democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting for what to have for dinner. Though the US never was a democracy (it was designed as a Constitutional Republic) it is certainly applying this methodology when it comes to what "freedoms" are to be had. In this case it is becoming two atheists and a "christian" deciding.
But the people that became the US have been here before in a manner of speaking. It was once two redcoats and an American voting on who was in charge and the redcoats lost. It is said that freedom must be earned. The people of the US once "earned" that freedom but it was more than a contest of arms. It was a contest of wills: One that pitted the freedom to serve YHWH against an obligation to serve a king. The people of the US again face a decision - will they stand up for the freedom to serve YHWH or will they bow to the whims of tyrants.
Return us to You, O YAHWEH, and we shall return. Renew our days as of old, for You have utterly rejected us; You are exceedingly angry against us.
Only time will tell; but, I for one have no belief in the people of the US, as a whole, returning to YHWH. The cancer is too deep and too widespread. It is malignant and terminal. I do have a very strong belief though that some of us will continue to serve YHWH. As a nation dies around us we can still be a light of hope to those around us - a beacon to draw people away from the dangers that beckon on the horizon.
If the US does not return to its humble beginnings she is doomed to experience the fate of the proud; and, with the way the US is using its power to spread evil it seems the sooner the US falls the better for the entire world. The children of YHWH in the US must work together - if they cannot help return their nation to YHWH then they must prepare to serve Him against that nation.
There are no spectators or benchwarmers in this event. You either serve YHWH or you do not. Many are called but few chosen. Do you stand for YHWH? Or do you kneel to tyrants?
Quote of the Week
We must never despair; our situation has been compromising before, and it has changed for the better; so I trust it will again. If difficulties arise, we must put forth new exertion and proportion our efforts to the exigencies of the times. - George Washington
Comment: Difficulties have certainly arisen. All that remains to be seen is if people still have the courage to face them.

Historically there are many ways to approach the study of the Bible. In Judaism the term Pardes, also spelled PaRDeS, refers to four manners of biblical interpretation and study:
Peshat: the "normal", obvious, literal, meaning
Remez: the "hidden" or symbolic meaning.
Derash: the comparative (midrashic) meaning as used in other similar occurrences.
Sod: the "secret" meaning as given through inspiration or revelation.
Intellistreets makes street lights that secretly record video and audio and can even be used to make public announcements! Comment: Just another new tool for Big Brother. These have already been installed in many major cities (e.g. Las Vegas, Detroit, Pittsburgh, etc.)
