in the book of Zechariah, chapter 12

Please read especially verses 1 through 12 (below):

The 12th chapter of Zechariah has some great insights into what's coming, and what's beginning to happen, on this earth. Please read it, and read the related verses that these verses lead you to read, in other portions of God's Holy Word. You may end up as inspired as I am, right now. Hallelujah! God is with us, and with all who are His chosen people!

He promised He would put His law (His instructions to us, as His children, His teachings ... called the Torah, in Hebrew) into our hearts, and write them / His law on the tablet of our heart / mind. He has done that. Now, we are to submit our lives (our thoughts, our will and our emotions, our words, our attitudes and our actions), and our plans, hopes, dreams and expectations to His Life He has shown to us, through the witness and testimony, suffering and sacrificial atonement made by God's Son, Yeshua the true Messiah, and ... Who is now alive, having been resurrected from the dead on the third day after He was killed, and hung on a cursed tree (a Roman execution stake, outside the city walls of Jerusalem), and Who now sits at the Right Hand of The Almighty God, YHWH, in Heaven.

We, who are true believers, have been made "alive in Messiah Yeshua." Hallelujah! He has purchased us, has chosen us, has redeemed us, by His precious Blood, which was shed, in our place, on "the tree," and ... now, we belong (entirely) to Him -- to God our Father in Heaven, and to Yeshua, His Son, the Messiah, the Promised, Anointed One of Israel.

Yeshua *is* The Way, The Truth and The Life! He is Lord over all! He made all things, and in Him all things consist! He is The King of kings, the Lord of all lords! He rules over all, and God, YHWH, The Lord Adonai, The Almighty, has put all things under Yeshua's feet! All will, one day, submit to Him and bow down and worship Him -- Yeshua! Prepare for that day. If you do not know Him, then please read what is in the book of Zechariah, and ... ask The Lord YHWH, Yeshua, to reveal Himself to you! He is ready to listen to all who call upon His Name, in truth! ... haShem Adonai Yeshua .... (see Psalm 145: 18-21, especially verses 18 and 19)

Blessings to you all!

Zec 12:1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

Zec 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem.

Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Zec 12:4 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

Zec 12:5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem [shall be] my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.

Zec 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, [even] in Jerusalem.

Zec 12:7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify [themselves] against Judah.

Zec 12:8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David [shall be] as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

Zec 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Zec 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for [his] only [son], and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] firstborn.

Zec 12:11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

Zec 12:12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;

Zec 12:13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;

Zec 12:14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.

Hope that helps you all!
Please call your senator's office, if you are able to. This is urgent.
Especially those senator who are on the committee, who are listed below. The article below explains this issue.

House of Representatives bill 20 --New Mother's Mandated Mental Health Test -- JUST PASSED HOUSE!
(Posted April 14th, 2009 by runforron)

A sweeping government policy for all new births in the United States has just passed the House of Representatives and is now headed to the Senate. The Mother's Act, if passed, will mandate that all new mothers be screened by means of a list of subjective questions that will determine if each mother is mentally fit to take their newborn home from the hospital. Just imagine that after your child is born, you are told that you can't take them home since a multiple choice questionnaire wasn't answered correctly. Just imagine being told that the only way you can take your child home is if you or your spouse goes into treatment or on anti-depressants which we know causes psychosis, delusions, and even homocidal thoughts. It just doesn't make sense. Unfortunately, this bill is on a fast track--No public debate, no public disclosure of the broad impact on our society and that is why we need you to act now!

The Mother's Act violates our Constitutional right to privacy and your right to liberty and it is just outright dangerous. That is why we need you to help stop this. We urgently need you to call and email each Senator on the HELP Committee and tell them you STRONGLY OPPOSE the MOTHER'S ACT and that you are OUTRAGED that there was NO public debate or disclosure on the impact this would have on our society as a whole.

Send a letter by going here: http://salsa.democracyina...

Please call the following Senators on the HELP Committee and tell them that you want the Mother's Act to die in committee.

Life continues to "go on" spring-ing: Gardening

Gardening is such fun!
We have been putting some seeds into the ground here, not knowing which ones will survive "the last frost" this year.
But it has been fun.
Due to our camera man ... well, ... being "elsewhere" serving / helping someone else, for a while still, ... we are without a camera to share photos.
But you're not missing much.


God is good! He is ever Mercy-full !
He lets us loosen very heavy clay soil and plant seeds in it, ... and now we're seeing them coming up!
... and the seeds we planted were generously given to us, last year. Yes! They are "out of season," and yet, many are still germinating, even in soil that the local "agri expert" claims is nearly impossible to grow anything in, except certain acid-loving things, and only if one uses a tiller (ha ha! Wish we had one, but we do not ... yet.), and only if one adds "certain elements" which would cost us more than our current budget will allow for. (my high school English teacher would not like that last word being the "last word" in that last sentence! ouch! Maybe she has something better to do today, rather than checking up on me, even if she were to be alive.) ;o)

Anyway, if you're reading this and want to find some helpful links to some helpful gardening websites, there are too many to list, but I will share some:
(here is one to get you started; looks like they have some help-full articles there!)

(more in my next post)
... the "blogger" mechanism that is for saving this post ... claims the "auto save" function is not working, for now.

I won't worry. God is working, right now, and ... always!
He always know what each of His children are doing, for the good of others.
And God (our Father in Heaven; the God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob; the "real father" of The Lord Yeshua the Messiah, Whom many call Jesus.) has not given me a spirit of fear, but (a spirit) of power, and of Love and of a sound mind. You may wish to read II Timothy 1: 7 for the actual text that shares this truth with you. ;o)

Gardening: a large, dirt-filled topic with many life-enhancing, sprouting results!

with Love to you, who are trusting in The Lord, and are redeemed by The Blood of The Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of all who will believe in The "true" Son of YHWH God, Yeshua, the "true" Messiah (the Only Messiah, Who ever was, and Who ever will be).

False messiahs may come and go.
But (I am dead to the world and to my flesh, my former, carnal self, and) my life is hid with Messiah in God (the Father Almighty). You may wish to read Colossians 3: 3 for the actual text that shares this truth. It is from a letter written by a former Jewish Pharisee, formerly named Saul of Tarsus, but later, re-named by Yeshua the Messiah, as Paul (the apostle). He wrote the letter to believers living in or near Colossae, in what we now call Turkey. Used to be called Asia Minor.

... it is a very inspiring "letter" ... by Paul (the apostle). If you care to read it in its entirety, I recommend your reading either the King James Version at or else you may wish to read it at

Just do a search for the book called Colossians.
... or look for the "name" of *Colossians* (on the Geneva Bible site) ... by scrolling down the main site page. ;o) Enjoy!

David Wilkerson's blog ... and more


David Wilkerson, the preacher who was willing, long ago, to humble himself and try to find a way to reach the hearts of gang members in New York City, ... and God enabled him to, ... is still sharing "serious truths" with those who wish to listen to him, at a blog he writes on, at:

I am so encouraged by what David shares on his blog, besides what he shares in his "Pulpit Series" messages his ministry is willing to send to those who request them. These newsletters share some very important reminders with us, who believe in and trust in The Lord Almighty, but who sometimes see we are becoming anxious or worried, or even tempted to be fearful, ... due to the extreme and dangerous "moves" our legislators and political leaders continue to make (in the wrong direction).

I am realizing we simply must choose to trust in The One in Whom we find true Faithfulness! We must remember He *is* El Shaddai, our All-Sufficient One!

If we know Who He is, The Lord Almighty, YHWH, the One Who made the entire universe, then we "must" see Him, and believe in Him, as The Only One we know Who can deliver us for disaster (on earth), if that will glorify His Name most. He is The Only One Who can take care of us in the midst of the "impending storm," if that will glorify His Name most. He is The Only One Who can demonstrate His mighty Power, in us, and through us, and how we respond to what our government does, or will do, or what others who hate Him may do, since whatever will bring His Name (haShem, YHWH) the most Glory is what He will do (and it's what we want Him to do, since that is what is right, and it also is in our best interest, though our flesh and our emotions may tell us otherwise.).

We know the Truth! We must choose to listen to His Voice! He is waiting for those who know Him to begin, again, to listen to His Voice, gentle, kind, patient, merciful and good... and to heed what He says, as He told many disturbing things to Jeremiah, long ago, but as long as Jeremiah obeyed God's Word to him, He did take care of Jeremiah. (sometimes in ways Jeremiah did not understand, at the time, but ... God was still with him! and He still used Jeremiah to do much good for those who would listen to God's reminders and His warnings.)

Will you be one of the ones who will listen to The Voice of Love, The Lord's Voice?

I hope I will remain faithful to Him! Lord, help me to live as You would have me live, for Your glory, and for the Kingdom of Your dear Son, Yeshua the Messiah! I am Yours! I am Your child! Keep me within Your Will, Father in Heaven! You have given me Your all! Now, I know You will enable me to follow You in The Way that will bring glory to Your Name and turn hearts to Your Son, Yeshua the Messiah, The Anointed One of YHWH God.

;o) -- keep smiling!
Keep looking down! -- your position, as a true believer in Heaven, if you have accepted the free gift of salvation (deliverance) obtained by the willing sacrificial atonement by The Lamb of God, Who died on "the cursed tree" outside of Jerusalem, as The Scriptures foretold of the Messiah, ... and He arose on the third day, according to The Scriptures. He now lives, and intercedes for us, as our High Priest, in Heaven, before The Throne of God!
He says, through writings His Holy Spirit inspired Paul the apostle to write, in the letter Rav Shaul (Paul) wrote to the Ephesian believers, in Ephesians 2: 4-7, that " God, Who is rich in Mercy, for His great Love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Messiah, (by Grace ye are saved;) and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in Heavenly places *in* Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus): that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His Grace in His Kindness toward us through Messiah Yeshua."

Hallelujah! He is awesome! He loves us so much! He even lets us be "a little higher than the angels" in the position He gives to us, ... within His realm!! That means we are 'right there' ... seated *in" Messiah Yeshua! He is our Lord, ... our Master, ... even ... our Friend (He calls us His friends if we do what He commands us to do)! He is indeed so much more Loving than we can imagine with our (present) finite minds! But He is able to do things we simply do not understand fully, yet, but which are still true! Let's rejoice in Him, Who has chosen us, from eternity, to belong to Him, and to be used by Him to persuade men and women to turn their lives over to His Son, as The One in Whom they should put all their trust and in Whom they should believe, in order to fulfill the purpose for which they were created.

I have put my trust in Yeshua as The Messiah!
Have you?
If you have any questions about that, or about how to give control of your life over to Yeshua (Jesus) as God's only Son, and The Only One Who can deliver us all from the eternal destruction and damnation we deserve, because of our sins (all have sinned and come short of the glory of God) and the resulting debt we owe to Him -- for the many times we have transgressed against His law, His teaching, His Torah -- please, please, will you visit either
or to find out "what you should do?"
