for those who "buy" (at this time of year, for specific reasons)

... please remember those who do not celebrate the so-called "Christian" holiday -- Christmas -- because of a personal conviction that The Word of YHVH God has developed within their souls & spirits, ...

("Christmas," as many Americans "know it," is actually pagan-based, originally & symbolically; it is celebrated in much of America, the U.S., but it still remains a pagan holiday in the items included in the celebration of it by most who call themselves Americans *and* believers in The Lord Jesus Christ / our Redeemer Yeshua ha Mashiach.)

... and please remember that, though you are so glad you have finished your "Christmas shopping," some of us are still getting over the loss of income, or the lack of regular, sufficient income (to meet meager expenses), and wonder about our futures and whether our children will think we do not value them, because we have "nothing (so to speak)" to give them like what some of their friends will be getting "this year." (on "that" holiday others, around them, celebrate)

This lack of regular, sufficient income-producing work leaves them either with a need to search their hearts / souls to figure out "why," or else they are left to wonder why there seems to be no work that will pay *them* the wages their living expenses require. Or are they faced with wondering where & when they will find paying work, to cover their meager costs of living in America?

... this means (some folks like me and, also) I can no longer, in my foreseeable future, give as I had done, "way back when...." Now, is this a complaint? Am I not willing to choose to have a heart / soul that is content with whatever my Master & Lord has provided for me, at this time & season in my life? Am I just never satisfied? Am I just a taker, rather than a giver? Am I simply a selfish soul? Am I unwilling to see the good, only focusing on what is going wrong, or what YHVH God is *not* doing, that I wish He would do?

What I mean is: Wishing it were not true, I must admit it still hurts in my emotions to read what others share about the gifts they have bought, which I know I cannot buy, even for those I love. I must hope my family members understand that I *do* love them, but will have to demonstrate it without giving them purchased gifts. (but that, too, "shall pass," in time; the emotional part will pass, I mean) I have found that time does not heal *all* wounds; YHVH our Healer *does* heal all wounds!!

YHVH, our Loving Father in Heaven, is able to heal us of frustrations & struggles that are a regular part of life on earth, from negative memories, from regrets from past unwise choices, from ongoing consequences that come from our past mistakes & errors of judgment and from unspiritual or immoral thoughts (or lies) we have thought (or believed) and then followed, which took us down paths we had never intended to "walk down."

It does not hurt in my spirit, because I am free from a former "caught-up-in-it" kind of trap, that others, before me, had not become aware was linked with Babylonian goddess & god worship (false gods, I mean) and with pagan worship & rituals tied to Molech, Chemosh, Tammuz, Ra, Aphrodite ... about "the queen of heaven" and "her son." (and other mythological gods, I'm sure)


Am merely asking anyone "who has money (or a regular income)" to be sensitive to those who have lost their jobs, those who are nearly homeless, or are living at the mercy of other believers, but who use library computers to log onto the internet, to check emails (they set up in former days), or those who used to have decent incomes but (not due to the present administration) simply have not been able to find gainful employment, as it used to be called, in America.

Result? We do without. You all can enjoy a time of buying for others, but we must either make any gifts we wish to give or not give any gifts at all. We may (many of us who are living in this "condition") not be able to give our own family members, whom we love very much, gifts similar to the ones we may have given them in the past, ... even for part of Chanukah's days of celebration this year. All we can do is to give food using government "subsidies." (how sad!) And that means we can only give food gifts to those who may actually need a new pair of socks, or a new pair of shoes, or a warm pair of winter gloves (that fit their hands).

It does "hurt" inside. (at least for now) But ... once again, that is because some of us are letting our "flesh," or our "pride" from our old selves, get through again. We know we should not. Our pride and our flesh have actually died (as shared by Rav Shaul, Paul the Apostle, in Romans 6:1-23), ... but it tries to creep back in, to unsettle us, in our minds, from time to time. So, as I am still workin' on guarding against those negative thoughts creeping in to my mind, as I read what others share, online. But I know I should "get over it." You can tell I have not fully succeeded in my battles against that happening. (aagh!)

Other ideas for gifts: ... or ... we must rely on other items we have had in our possession, from earlier times, ... to make them into some gift we would like to give to those in our own families, during Chanukah, or for a birthday in our own family, or to a relative for a special occasion.

( I do happen to have a late December birthday, so am aware that some folks have birthdays close to the end of December, as I do. )

Knowing that others have been able to spend "plenty" to "bless" their own family members does sadden those who do not have any money to buy even several of the $1 items that they have, at times, settled for buying, when they felt they had no other choice. (this seems like a less-than-likely circumstance for an American to go through, to some, but it is truly what many people, in America, have been living faced with, for more than a few years, for some of them) Having lived as one "who had," in the past, it is taking me quite a while to now see that I must be content to be one "who has not."

However, YHVH is teaching me much more compassion & a real & clearer understanding of what "those who do not have what others have," have gone through, ... some for quite a few years. ;o(

We all must learn to show more compassion, & reach out to help meet the needs of others, ... because many of us have more things we "could give" to those who "do not have them," than we realize. ! YHVH has been teaching me that I can give something I really could live without, to someone who would appreciate that item, ... because they could not, otherwise, get to enjoy it. This is one benefit of not having any extra money to spend on gifts, for those who are "not" family, but are in the "family of YHVH." It also leads those of us "who have not (money)" to become more resourceful & begin to produce some gifts our Creator will enable us to make, for someone else, to brighten their day. The need for an income led one, formerly homeless man, to begin a company making chocolate-chip cookies, called Famous Amos brand cookies.


If others have not been through this type of complete change from their former way they used to live, they will not comprehend what I am sharing.

If anyone reading this has done without regular food for any amount of time, eaten only inferior food from such places as a food pantry, they'll understand. (some of this kind of food is just fine & actually of very high quality, at times! Some of it is like this -- canned food is dead; -- dried foods, such as dried beans, are okay. But after a week or two of eating only those, several times a week, or every evening, one does wish one could get something that is fresh, to eat.) If people go without "decent" food (including fresh, healthy food) for very long, it affects their body systems and their overall health. It affects their thinking and their overall attitudes and interactions with other people. When people figure that their life situation may not change, soon, that is when some people will begin "looking outside" to see if they can glean some wild berries or nuts, or parts of God's bounty of plants, that can be gathered, & cut, & dried, or taken home to cook, to eat.

If anyone has done without their needed healthy foods for a few weeks or months, or for more than a year, that is when they will have a clearer idea about what I speak of. Groups of true believers can look for opportunities to help those in (true) need.


Please, be sensitive to others, even in America, who are doing without what they used to enjoy doing (giving to others, I mean). However, we must all remember that this is not even close to the intensity of (physical and emotional and mental) suffering that many true believers, across the world, have been going through, for much longer than many of us realize, especially within the 10/40 window. Please! -- remember to pray for those you are aware of, who are suffering due to persecution against believers in / followers of Yahshua The Messiah!

Thoughts: Am thinkin' of goin' offline (from some networks I've been on) for a while, just to avoid reading what some share, by email, on blogs, on social networks ... about ... packing their boxes of gifts (they bought) to mail to others, or sharing that they've finished shopping & are ready to mail their packages, ... or ... whatever wording they choose, ... to share their gladness about the buying they have been enabled to do.

They may be quite happy upon realizing that the rush-to-spend time has ended (though its end only comes "after" the buyer has "sent off, within the U.S. mailing & package-delivery system," the items the buyer bought for others, as part of this season of the winter solstice celebration of the son {whose name is Tammuz} of the queen of heaven {the mother of Tammuz, whose name is known as Ishtar}).

(an added note: ... that "son" is not my Messiah, Whose Name is Yahshua; some spell it Yeshua, as I often do, also) (By the way, this pagan deity is taught about, in the form of Aphrodite, and ... her son, Adonis, is another name for Tammuz; this is just the same pagan god with a different naming system, that another group of pagans used to worship. Each successive civilization seemed to take up the same basic story line, to further perpetuate "the lie" that the enemy of YHVH's children would like them to fall for.)

( ... please, if you're still with me, here, read on ... )

Time of year has been corrected: My Messiah Yahshua is The only-begotten Son of YHVH (YaHWeH) The Almighty One, The I AM. He "is" The I AM. He was born in early October, or late September, when the weather on the mountainsides outside Bethlehem was not below freezing! He was born ten 4-week months (Americans say 9 months later) after He was conceived during Chanukah, the festival of lights. He is The Light and Life of all those who will believe in Him, as Messiah as The Lamb of YHVH God, Yahshua! He was not born, ... nor could have been, to fulfill the prophecies in The Old Covenant (The Old Testament), the Tanakh, ... during a very cold, winter time of any year! That would have shown that He was not truly of YHVH God! His being conceived during the festival of lights, and then being born at the time of Sukkot (Succoth), the feast of tabernacles, makes sense, though that is not the only reason why anyone should believe it is true. He came, as shared in John 1:14, to "dwell" (the word means "to tabernacle" with us) among us, .... So, His being born during the feast of tabernacles fits into the prophetic calendar of His Father in Heaven, YHVH.

Personal Conviction. -- that is what this is. Please take it for what it is.


So, please, if you wish to write to me about what I have shared here, please consider what I, or someone I know well, ... or someone I have helped with "free government food" to, with my family (in ministry we help others with, enabled by YHVH God), or someone who is currently unemployed, ... is going through.

With or without having formerly celebrated a holiday time (that now I know to be pagan), at this time of year, ... either way, it does not "build up (edify)" others in Messiah Yahshua (Yeshua) ... for other believers to share about how they have (had the opportunity) to spend enough money on gifts & then on postage costs, ... to buy & mail gift packages to their living-away-from-home family members or their local-area relatives or friends they want to bless, in some way.


What I have been sharing here is not the result of envy, jealousy, anger, or bitterness, or regret over past mistakes or wrong choices. It is a result of YHVH allowing me to see "more of the other side of life" in America, that so many will not do anything about (who could), to help those who are the "truly" needy. These folks have nothing to give their own children, and many (not myself) do not even have enough decent, healthy food to feed their little ones, whom they love just as much as you love your children. This is simply a situation that, to me, should not be occurring, in "the land of the free & the home of the brave." (my personal belief)

Someone (true believers in YHVH & in Yahshua, His Son) could bring them enough food to keep them going for at least a month, or more! There are some folks who spend money on frivolous, unneeded items or activities & on vain pursuits. Some of these folks cannot (or do not know how to) repair the hole-filled socks or clothing they or their children wear. Someone could help them learn how. Someone could show them how to clean their houses, and get rid of things they no longer use, that may even bring them a bit of money, if sold or traded for something they "do" need.

Someone could show them how to plant seeds, to grow foods they could eat, in the spring. Yes, there are some things that can be planted, at this often-very-cold time of year, in some parts of the USA! Someone could help by trimming their children's hair, so they will not figure they have to pay someone else, for a hair cut they do not have the money to get. Someone could offer to come & clean their clothing, if their washer has broken, or if they have been washing their clothing in their bathtub, because they do not have the money to buy even an old, used one to replace their non-working washer.

Someone could teach them more about spiritual warfare, so they could learn how to take back the ground in their souls that they had given, in previous times, ... to the enemy of their souls, satan (the accuser) and the devil (the deceiver, the liar). By the way, every person on the earth has been affected, at some point in time, by satan (& the devil, who are one & the same), in one way or another. Some have "given ground" in their souls without even realizing it. So, everyone *does* need to learn how to take back the "surrendered ground," so that YHVH's Spirit is able to renew their minds through The Word of YHVH and teach them Truths that will give them spiritual Understand they need, to face their future on earth. (and to use to help others)

Someone could take a copy of Neil T. Anderson's _Steps to Freedom in Christ (Messiah)_, & read through it with them, & explain any topics or issues they have questions about, ... & pray with them through it, until they, themselves, realize the freedom (by experiencing it) Messiah Yahshua has bought for them by shedding His Blood on the Roman execution stake, to pay the penalty they owed for their sins, to YHVH, their Father in Heaven.


What I share is simply a plea: please be sensitive to those who have no money to buy gifts during this season of the year.


You are all, of course, quite free to write whatever you wish (as a true believer in Yahshua / Yeshua The Messiah), as you write emails on yahoo groups or to individuals, or as you share something on a social network, or write on your profile page on "facebook."

I am not telling you what to write. I am merely pleading with you, to *please* consider those who can manage to "get online" to try to share with other believers ... but who do *not* have any income except what another very generous believer is helping them with, in order to pay their basic bills.

It hurts our flesh. Our flesh is to die, by our choice of denying it. (personal conviction) I know I need to "get over it." !!

This year, having lived with a less-than-what-I-believe-YHVH-wants to bless us with, ... I am having to choose, by will, to thank & praise His Name, YHVH, The I AM, ... instead of seeing Him enable me to give anything (they'd like) ... to some of my family members or to relatives who "do" believe it is right & good to buy (and then send them) gifts.


This is a bit hard to explain (in words only).

Am hopin' that somethin' I have written here might lead someone else, who is a true believer, to search The Word, to find where it was commanded, that all who have put their trust in Yahshua (Yeshua) The Son of YHVH (YaHWeH) God, ... to remember His Birth, to celebrate it.

YHVH is The God of Yisrael, He is The Almighty, The I AM, The Ancient of Days, El Shaddai, Who is El Elyon.

Yahshua (Yeshua) commanded His followers (many American believers call them the Disciples or the Apostles, and they include Paul, or Rav Shaul, as the 12th one who was chosen, by YHVH, to replace to Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Yahshua and truly never had a part in Him, as Yahshua had said) to remember & commemoriate the Passover (Pesach) meal with the cup of wine (slightly fermented grape juice) and the bread (an unleavened cake used during Pesach, or Passover) He has used to share with them what these would represent, to them, after He died on the Roman execution stake, to redeem them all, and all others (Hebrew believers) who would believe on His Name. (Yahshua knew this also included the Gentiles, who would believe on His Name; it was prophesied, more than once, in the Hebrew writings of the prophets, and it was written about even by king David in the Psalms).

In other words, Yahshua told us to commemorate and remember His Death. This bought our eternal Life! We are also to rejoice in and commemorate His Resurrection from the dead, because this sets our Savior / Redeemer completely apart from the ones others, of what they call their "religions," claim they believe in, for their so-called future life in their so-called Heaven, or paradise, or ... where they think they will "go to," after they die.


We naturally would want to celebrate the fact that our Messiah was born as a man on earth!

But ... He wants us to focus on celebrating the feasts He celebrated, while on earth, and especially celebrate the story of the time when He died, to buy our new Life in Messiah Yahshua, and then was resurrected, after 3 days & nights in "the heart of the earth," to being seen alive on earth by other 500 brethren (on one day, at one appearance), believers in His Name, along with others who listened to His Voice and talked with Him, before He ascended back into Heaven, from the Mount of Olives!


And ... He wants us to live for His Name (Yahshua), above all, not for times in the year when we think we must (or may choose to) go into debt (some do), or spend more than we have on hand (... or to wish we "could" do that) ... in order to just try to do what others are expecting us to do, or (worse) to keep a tradition we have been taught honors The Son of YHVH God, though I doubt it does (personal conviction).

Please ... Let's keep in mind the real reason that (Americans, at least) "set aside" this time of year to honor The One Who was pierced, and Who gave His Life a ransom for many, who would believe in His Name, for the redemption of their souls ... is this: they "intend" to show Him they are quite thankful (more than words could express, of course) that He chose, freely, to humble Himself, come to be born on earth, to live as a man (though quite poor & homeless, after He began His earthly ministry) Who would live on earth, and then show the ones who observed Him, during His lifetime on earth, how YHVH has commanded all who believe in His Name "how to live" for YHVH in Righteousness, sincerity and Truth.


As we study more & more about Him, The One Whose Name is above every other name in all the universe, we continue to learn more.

... I am still learning ....

And, by the way, I do very much appreciate the wonderful Grace you all, my friends, have extended to me.

Sometimes I share things which I realize some will consider quite controversial. I do not overlook the Grace you all extend to me, as I share these things. You could tell me what you think about my sharing some of these "news items." But you choose not to. (or else are too busy to read them all) I know YHVH God will (and does) reward those (of you) who walk in Righteousness! in Meekness! in Humility! and in agape Love!

John 15 and I John 1 through 5 especially share more about what He wants us to know about abiding in Him, walking with Him! Continue to store His Word in your mind / heart! He will use it to do the good He wants to do in you... and He will also use it (The Word, which is alive) to open the eyes of those who now dwell in darkness, ... so they, too, can "see The Light!" ... as YHVH has opened your eyes to see His Truth more clearly.

He does not want that any would perish, but that all would come to the knowledge of The Truth, in His Son, Yahshua! -- see II Peter 3:9

my review of Marilyn Boyer's book: For You They Signed

My review of For You They Signed, by Marilyn Boyer

I've enjoyed the thoroughness, the attention to detail in noticing God-honoring character in each of the 56 men, and the quotes shared, by Marilyn in her book For You They Signed. She has done a superb job in writing this book!
I would recommend it to anyone, from grandparents to any home-educated students who are willing to read this book and appreciate it for the invaluable life studies it contains. It's a great book to read through, or skip around in, to learn as much as we are willing to tackle, in one sitting. Why? Because it's hard to put it down!

Marilyn Boyer has packed so many goodies into her book, and so much that's helpful for us to know about these 56 men, that I am quite inspired by just being allowed to read through it. I am glad to get to learn all I can from her research on the lives of these men, who put their lives on the line for our sake, for the sake of their children or the children of others, and for the sake of those in their home towns, in order to draft and then, later, discuss and sign the Declaration of Independence.

Some of the 56 men are men about whom I knew nearly nothing before opening up this book! This book has also taught me more than I ever knew about this worthy & honorable group of men! Many of these men had families who had to run the farm while they were away. Their wives and children were more than willing to sacrifice quite a lot, just so these husbands and fathers could participate in this process. Their families (of the married men) knew the men felt compelled by The Lord Almighty to be a part of this process, so that they could help form a nation where men could live by the "unalienable rights" that our Creator has "endowed" each one (citizen) with.

What an exciting, challenging, yet life-endangering, process! Yet they weighed the risks they took and believed what they were doing was right, under God!

For You They Signed will enable me to do many more studies about these men whose lives exemplify character I’d like my sons to emulate. I home educate my younger 3 children, who are now between the ages of 16-3/4 (!) and 'almost-11 (!).'
My children are getting the blessed benefit of becoming acquainted with men of high moral character: men who feared God more than a tyrannical king who had been their earthly authority; men who wanted to acknowledge what they believed to be their "necessary" duties in dissociating themselves from the one to whom they were previously "bound," and who wanted to "assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them."

How do you sum up a 50-year (or an 80-year) lifespan in only a few paragraphs? Marilyn has used her God-given gifts to accomplish this through the cameos she’s written so well. I hope to continue to share with my children from these cameos to fill our coming year with inspirational readings we can all benefit from! We'll be able to learn so much more, by taking it a piece at a time, so we can digest it well.

In Marilyn’s book, the artistic elements she used (shaded areas for some quotes) and well-drawn sketches by her illustrator, plus the areas in which she shared information about place of birth, education, occupation, etc., all helped to give an artistically-balanced look to this book. For artist-type moms or children, this element of her book helps hold our interest while reading it.

Having also been given the privilege of learning about some of our Founding Fathers through David Barton’s ministry, Wall Builders, I am so glad to see that Marilyn used David’s inspiration to lead her to write such a helpful book, for educators, parents and children to all gain wisdom & Godly character lessons from!

My 16-year-old son told me "this book is thorough and it is interesting."

The questions at chapter ends will provide for some great family discussions! They require much thought and show how carefully Marilyn planned this book to help our children develop their thinking abilities. Thank you, Marilyn!

Marilyn's character sketches on the lives of Matthew Thornton, Richard Henry Lee and George Wythe opened my eyes to much I wish I had known, about them, long ago. However, please understand how hard it is not to list quite a few more names, here, of those men whose lives can inspire our sons to greatness!

I'm so thankful to New Leaf Publishing Group (New Leaf Press) for giving me the opportunity to review this book! wow! Thank you, New Leaf Publishing Group! What a great book to get to review!

The accompanying activity book (180 pages in length) will be enjoyed by anyone who has a teachable attitude. I especially like the cards that link a Scripture verse and a character quality to each of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence! This activity book is available for free to anyone who purchases For You They Signed.

YHWH God is good! He wants us to know others who have walked with Him and have trusted Him to do His Work in their lives, using them to do His good among those whose lives their life touches, being willing to sacrifice their lives (if necessary) to do their sacred duty, for His glory! I believe Marilyn Boyer has done a lovely job of putting together much that's helpful, truthful and that characterizes these 56 men in the light of their actual lives. Some historians, in my lifetime, have tried to turn young people in my home country away from thinking well of these men, and others, who were very much actively involved in the founding of the United States of America. However, Marilyn has cooperated with The Man of Truth (Messiah Yeshua, Who is Truth), I believe, in bringing out the truth about how these men lived and what they believed, in their lives, before, during and after they were participating in the discussions and the composition of the Declaration of Independence.

For You They Signed is well worth reading and sharing with our children and grandchildren!

YHWH Elohim's Ways are so high, they are very, very far beyond my own ways!

... when we need
some help and we wonder why some things are not going as had thought
they might ....

At times, it becomes even clearer that YHWH's Ways are so much higher (zillions of miles higher!) than my ways. (!) (surprised?)


Isaiah 55: 6 - 13

Seek ye The LORD (YHVH) while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him
return unto The LORD (YHVH), and he will have mercy upon him; and to our
God (Elohim), for He will abundantly pardon.

For My thoughts (are) not your thoughts, neither (are) your ways My Ways, saith The LORD

For (as) the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My Ways higher than your ways, and My Thoughts than your thoughts.

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but
watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give
seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

So shall My Word be that goeth forth out of My Mouth: it shall not return unto Me void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper (in
the thing) whereto I sent it.

For ye shall go out with Joy, and be led forth with (Shalom) Peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before
you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap (their)

Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to The LORD
(YHVH) for a name (Shem), for an everlasting sign (that) shall not be
cut off.


It should be obvious (to those who know me) that I would not ever suppose that my
ways were even anywhere near to the height (of the wonderful, surpassing brilliance of
Wisdom, Knowledge & Understanding) of my Father's Ways! (my Father
in Heaven)

But, what I mean to share, here, is this:

Have seen, recently, that I am aware of being in a dilemma of sorts.
Have asked YHVH God, my Father in Heaven, in past years, to open the doors of
opportunity for my husband, for my grown children, each one, and for my
younger children, as well as for myself, as He sees fit, and at any time
He would choose, to do the good, to produce the income, to further His purposes & goals for each of us that He wants, and not what I want.

However, what I am seeing going on is more like this:
I have seen several opportunities that were made clear to us ... that have been missed.

Have also (in the midst of asking Him to lead us, give us direction, to complete the vision He had given to my husband) seen my Father in Heaven allow me to be deceived by circumstances (what happens in life on earth), and by my own (wrong) thoughts, or by what others have
suggested be done (or suggestions for what we 'should' do, from their perspective).

... and the result is, now, that I see no money available to us, to use for some needs (yes, real needs) that are coming up, during this time in (our) history. Am not sure "why" this is continuing.

(some funds to use for needs for our family and for others He may wish us to help)

Overall result: Is my Father in Heaven, Who is the Transcendent One, The Almighty, The
all-Knowing One, ... The God of Israel, ... helping me to learn some new
lessons through recent situations, that have brought quite a lot of
sadness to my soul?

Is He, again, wanting me to yield my rights and expectations to Him because I am not "fully" doing that, yet?
Have I taken back some rights and expectations I had given over to Him, before (or so I thought), to deal with as He sees fit and good to

Have I cast my burdens upon YHVH God, and then pulled them back, as a
fisherman reels in his line, to check whether or not his bait is still
on his fishing line?

There are several teachings that have come to my mind, more than a few times, as important and even as commands, but
which I have not seen Him give me the freedom to carry out, though He is continually influencing my authorities, for good,
under my Father in Heaven.
Yet, what has happened puzzles me. It is just "not a done deal." He is not bringing about a number of things I believe He has promised to do (for His own). In other words, He has (always) some very good reasons for why He is allowing negative situations, closed doors to opportunity, and a feeling of being "trapped" ... with very few options for "getting out" of a negative situation, in this place where we now dwell & serve Him.

Is He proving me? Is He pruning the unproductive parts of my branches (because they all belong to Him; my Father is the Vinedresser and His Son, Yeshua, is The Vine!)?
He *does* prove us. He *does* prune us! He *does* purge from us what is no good and cannot be used to bring glory to His Name! He does all of that for our good and to develop the character of Messiah Yeshua in us, who are His. (see Romans 6: 1-23) (see Galatians 2: 20)

Psalm 139: 23 - 24 also shares the concept of YHVH God examining us, proving us, to see
what kinds of attitudes or thoughts we live by. This proves what we
truly believe.

My heart may be deceiving me (as mentioned in Jeremiah 17:9).
I may be being tempted to become angry with YHWH God or with my God-ordained authorities.
How I respond to what is being taught (from sources other than my earthly authorities), including what my Heavenly Father is teaching me from His / The Word of YHWH Elohim, that I can verify is truly coming, at is root, from my Heavenly Father, ... is what will determine whether or not fund will be supplied to accomplish goals of His.
If the goals *are* YHWH's goals, then He will bring them about! He does not work against accomplishing His own goals!


... testing ... ... proving ...

In James 1: 2 He shares with us: Count it all joy when you fall into divers (various, differing) temptations
(proofs, experiences);

He continues in verse 3, by sharing: Knowing this, that the trying (a testing, by implication, trustworthiness) of
your faith (persuasion, moral "credence" of religious truth; especially,
reliance on Messiah for salvation) worketh patience.

Psalm 17:3 uses the word "prove." II Corinthians 13:5 also shares that we need to
"prove" our own selves.

When I am not sure which next step to take, or whether to do something I believe I should do, or someone else I
know well should do, I must do all I can to seek my Heavenly Father's
Will, by more study in His Word and prayer. In time, He will make it
more clear to me. He will not leave us without His Counsel.
I must not trust my own thoughts or feelings / emotions! These can deceive me! (and have, before)

It is true that if we have rejected His Counsel very often in the past, He may not jump at
the opportunity to help us, until we have confessed that we've responded
to (reacted against) Him in pride, admitting we were wrong to do that.

If I do not receive what I believe is *His* Counsel, after I've sought His Face through fasting & prayer,
and if I have shown I have a deep, sincere desire to do His Will, ...
then, He is wanting me to "stay put." He will lead, if we let Him. He
will guide us, and give us the proper direction we need Him to give us.
I must not "go ahead," figuring that what I "sense" is "of Him!"

We must be willing for Him to show us a different pathway than the one we'd like Him to let us walk on. (by pathway, I merely mean: a choice
to do a certain thing or go to a certain event, or take a certain job,
or move to a certain place..., or accomplish a goal that may be ours, rather than His, ... for example)

We must be willing, cheerfully, for Him to prune us, purge from us what He knows we need to
get rid of, and surrender all our rights and expectations to Him.

Am I willing to do that, cheerfully? every day? when I must make an important decision?
(in truth, all our decisions are important!)

After I have shown my Heavenly Father that I truly am willing for Him to take total control over all areas of
my soul, thought-life, plans, daily schedule, health, relationships, job
or lack of job, and my responsibilities, I will soon see He will test
me, to prove me, whether or not I "meant it." (Did I *really* mean what I
said to Him, in prayer?!)

I have tried to surrender all areas of my life to my Heavenly Father, yet, have seen that, in my thoughts and in
how I have responded to those He has put within a small sphere of influence where I live, that I have not kept
my promises to Him, have not continued, daily, to surrender *all* those same
areas of my life. (ouch!)

How did I do that? If I am not, continually, guarding my thoughts and my attitudes, I can slip back into "the flesh,"
my "old ways." (of thinking, of selfishness) King David knew he was
capable of doing that, also. (we all are)

YHVH God said, of David, that he was a man after God's own Heart; he desired to follow
YHVH, his Heavenly Father, throughout his life, and be with Him in
eternity! And yet, he messed up as I see I do. ;o(

This is why our Adonai (Master) Y'shua taught, through the apostle Paul (Rav Shaul), that we must check / prove ourselves, by seeing that
we are not "warring" "after (according to the ways of) the
(not-God-seeking) flesh":

II Corinthians 10: 3 - 5 shares
For though we walk (live) in the flesh (as humans), we do not war after (following the
ways of) the flesh:
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God (our Heavenly Father) to the pulling down of
strongholds (our wrong thinking in our souls);
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the
knowledge of God (YHWH, Elohim),
and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Messiah;

Though this passage may sound like it refers to warring, implying it may refer to conflicts among
those who say they are believers in Messiah, but (to me) the last two
verses directly relate to how I must beware that my thoughts can get
misdirected, or be guided by my emotions, in some situations (or in many!), ... and I must
"take them captive," instead.

I can use this, in a practical way, even when I am alone, praying!
Can also apply what it teaches me to how I think about portions of His Word I am studying!
I can apply it to making decisions and activities!

So, I (a commitment, moment by moment, from now on) will trust YHWH God, my Heavenly Father, will guide me, and will open doors of opportunity for my family and me
to serve Him in new ways, if He sees fit. If not, then I will trust Him
to provide what we need to have on hand, in order to serve Him in a way
that glorifies His Name.

As J. Hudson Taylor wrote:

"Depend on it. God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply. He is too
wise a God to frustrate His purposes for lack of funds, and He can just
as easily supply them ahead of time as afterward, and He much prefers
doing so."

-- J. Hudson Taylor

... so, it must be time to fast & pray........

Note: Sure hope what I've shared here helps someone else. All we believers seem to walk the same, basic paths in life (on earth),
with some variations.
As King Solomon said: there is no new (thing) under the sun. -- Ecclesiastes 1:9b

thoughts about The Lord YHVH

The Lord is so merciful & patient!

He never lets us go, even when we don't seem to be walking hand in Hand "with" Him. His LovingKindness is ever extended to us, and He always has His Gentle, welcoming Hands of Mercy reaching toward us! (let's praise His Name: ha Shem!)

He rejoices over us with Joy, with singing, & He rests in His Love. He is in the midst of us. He is Mighty to Save! (let's shout Hallelujah for our Savior, Redeemer, Lord & Master, Who is also our King, Protector, & Best Friend!!) What a Friend, an Awesome Friend, we have in Yeshua! (Jesus Christ)

I am so thankful He has chosen me & ordained me, that I should go & bring forth fruit (souls for His Kingdom), yet He knows I am not good at doing that, at all. (ouch!) But He continues to extend His Loving, Merciful, Patient Hands to me, to help me walk more closely with Him and enables me to hear Him more clearly, each day, as I seek His Face.

Oh, how blessed it is to know The One Who made the universe, Who holds it all up, maintaining its continuing existence until the time He has chosen to burn it, and make a new heaven & a new earth. The (only One) Awesome God is the same One Who has chosen you & me to serve Him, live only for Him, and to follow Him, in Righteousness! Hallelujah! (shouting again)

Am without much, financially.

Am out of debt, completely.

Only owe love, ... and I still fail at delivering that. (ouch!) But He continues to share His agape (unconditional, limitless) Love with me (!). He still continues to share His agape Love with all who believe in The Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world (all the people who put their trust in Him, as Lord & Atonement-Maker)!

Yeshua, my Atonement-Maker, shed His Blood to pay the debt I owed my heavenly Father, YHVH El Shaddai, Adonai, Elohim, He is Adonai Echad. And He only asks me to believe in Him, and in return, He has given me (and all who believe in Yeshua as Messiah) eternal life and re-birth, by Grace through my believing trust in Yeshua my Messiah. (Jesus Christ)

All my possessions I've given to Him.

Am still learning to daily yield my rights to my Lord, so He can, then, do His Will in & through my life.

He has given me eternal Life! I cannot turn back. I must follow Him! He "is" my Life! Yeshua is The Way, The Truth and The Life. No man can come to The Father but by Him! (Hallelujah!, shouting again)

In Him is Life eternal & He gives us this new Life "free." He had to pay a high price, the ultimate price! But to us, His gift is free. (if we believe & let Him transform us)

He has transformed my life on earth! He is still renewing my mind, as I read & study His Word, each day. He teaches me as I pray. He is so active in my life, that I cannot pray without His Holy Spirit (Ruach ha Chodesh) actively involved in it. He is ever with me! He is wanting me to think like my Savior & Lord. As The One Whom The Father has chosen to be my Teacher, The Holy Spirit helps me understand The Word, as I read & study it.

Yet, I grieve His Holy Spirit, at times. (aagh!) Oh, how He must cry, as He sees me mess up royally. (my wording; it has nothing to do with any acknowledged royal family on earth; it's just a phrase that means something 'big') I don't mean to, or intend to do what is wrong, in YHVH God's sight. But ... I can be deceived, just like anyone else. If I allow the enemy of God to have an 'open door' into my mind, then I can think wrong (a stronghold) (from Ephesians 4:20-32), and that is able to lead me to do wrong, or speak wrong. I can, at any point in time, humble myself before The Lord & then, resist the devil (the deceiver), and then, he will flee from me. But if I do not, I've allowed the enemy of YHVH God to influence my mind.

Anyway, ... as I (then) acknowledge my sin, the wrong I've done, before Him (The Lord YHVH), in humility & meekness, He is always ready to welcome me with His open Arms of agape Love, having forgiven me, putting my sin as far as the east is from the west. (from Psalm 103:11-13)

These are some thoughts along my personal journey in His Way. This is not long enough to include all I could share, nor have I written enough to explain all that I've said, in a way that will help you in the best way. But, perhaps, over time, I can add to it. (we'll see) Others write more eloquently than I do.

Am, this week, finishing up preparations for ladies' tea to be at our local believer's congregation in Tennessee, that the ladies of our family are helping to host. ;o) I hope you all will enjoy a peace-filled Shalom rest on The Lord YHVH's Sabbath!
Let's praise His Name! He is Good! His Mercy endures forever!

your health freedom


The link, below, should take you to the Health Freedom USA website of the Natural Solutions Foundation.
It will alert you to what is being promoted by those in government who would like to use what they are calling "a vaccine" to maim, kill, or damage you and your health.

(I realize I am using strong language. This is quite serious! Have been following information shared by the Natural Solutions Foundation, for some time now, and they are being targeted by some, in our nation's government, who *do not* want the truth that NSF is sharing, to get out to everyone in the general public, in America, or anywhere else.)

In order to make wise, informed choices, regarding our health, I am sharing this information with you, ... because I do care that your health may soon be, again, in jeopardy. (potentially)

Do not do all that some folks tell you you have to do.
That is simply not the truth, by law, in the U.S. A.
We "still" have a choice.

And after someone in government begins telling us we will be prosecuted, or jailed, or imprisoned, or killed, ... we "still" have a choice.
Yeshua did.
He chose "eternal Life" for you and me!

Many, who were told they would be killed, during WWII, were not.
Many, in other countries, who are threatened with death, or torture, ... are sent Mighty, Powerful Help, and Deliverance, from Heaven above! Not all are sent that same help. Some must suffer horribly, or are murdered, by those whose hatred is actually against The Lord Almighty, The Maker of Heaven and earth.
But God uses all things to draw more men and women and children to a saving knowledge of His Son, Who came to earth, to live, suffer & die, to make full (complete) atonement for your sins and mine, by the shedding of His Blood, through His death on the Roman execution stake. Then, He was raised from the dead after He had been in the tomb for 3 days!
He is now alive, and is able to help those who put their full trust in, and they believe in, His Name, and in His Redemption He bought for each of us, through His atoning sacrifice, as The Lamb of YHVH God.
Yeshua is His Name. He is The Messiah of YHVH God. He is The Promised One of The God of Israel.
John 1:1-18, and John 3:3, 3:5, 3:16-21, plus John 6:27, 32-33, 35-40, 44, 47-48, and John 8:12, John 10:1-18, and John 12:24-26, 12:44-50, and John 14:6, 10-27, and John 15:1-17 will be of help to you, in learning more about The Messiah of YHVH God.

If you already know Him, then I rejoice with you!
The angels in Heaven rejoice over one sinner that is converted (to a saving knowledge of Who God's Son truly is) and now has eternal Life!

Please, choose "Life" for you and your children and grandchildren!
Go to for more information on how to be born again.

Please, also, choose "life" and "good health" for you and your children and grandchildren!

The link, below, will take you to an "action" opportunity, in which you may (first) register, and then, submit a very simple message to your Congressman, your state Senators, and ... at times, the message is also sent to the men in The White House.
After you are registered, you will receive future alerts, by email newsletter.
Then, you need only put your zip code in, in a box on the "... salsa. democracy in action .org ..." link page you are re-directed to.
Then, a message page will come up.
Then, all you do is choose your subject, and type that in.
Then, you may edit the message.
Then, you may send it.
And, in some cases, particular Congressmen, or Senators, or The White House, may expect you to share a bit more information, such as your "title," like "Mr." or "Mrs." ... or which "topic" you are writing them about, so your message can be sorted, to be read by the appropriate "aide," most likely.

I have used this system to alert my Congressman, and our two state Senators, and also the man in The White House, in the past.
It is a very easy system to use, and one that I truly believe has been very effective in making "those folks" aware that we are quite aware of the things they are doing, to go against several of the "God-given" rights of legal, U.S. citizens and their family members!

some more stuff to be aware of "from the news desk"

Godonomics: What America needs, article by Chad Hovind

Our military needs your help -- now, article by Jane Chastain

Congressman says Mr O is buying votes in Kenya ... and is pumping $23 million into advancing abortion and Islamic law, article by Jerome S. Corsi

Obama advisor says U.S. is "ideal place for renewal of Islam" article by Aaron Klein
(this article is about "who is behind" the idea of building a mosque near Ground Zero)
Is this man Mr O's worst nightmare? -- my re-wording of title of a very good article by Chelsea Schilling
Mr O may have met his match, now, in a possible (he's praying about it) presidential candidate who is a strong believer -- Herman Cain

In Spain, women now must look at "information" about what abortion does (to the baby) -- this is good news! Truth makes us free!

The links, below, are shared here because they will, each, lead you to some informative articles. Staying informed about the news that the "regular" media "outlets" are not reporting will help you know more about the truth. And The Truth does make you free!
We can all make wiser decisions when we know all the facts!


Yes, I know I did not begin this "blog" just to share links to news articles, friends.
But ... am seeing and hearing, from some others, that some Americans are simply not "reading" this side of what is really going on, in the U.S.A. and elsewhere in the world.

It "is" important to find out that one's government leaders are not dealing honestly (if they are not), nor are they admitting all that they are "up to" *behind closed doors (this only applies to those leaders who are planning & trying to carry out their selfish, wicked plans, from YHVH God's perspective) ," as they "make deals" with those who are, honestly, America's bitter enemies. (some of those enemies are descendants, for many generations, of honest, hard-working "true" American citizens, but these men & women have corrupt minds, destitute of the truth, and they follow evil, wicked ideas of men & women like themselves, whose hearts dwell in darkness, not being satisfied unless they have done someone harm, in some way)

I am not bitter. Am only trying to share the Truth.
But to the previously-sovereign nation of the U.S.A., those nations and leaders, in other countries, and even in our own country, who were admittedly called "our enemies" because it was widely known that they were (and are) against Almighty God YHVH, The God of Israel.

And He is also The God Whose only-begotten Son is named Yeshua (in Hebrew; He *was* born a Jew, of the tribe of King David, the tribe of Jehudah / Judah, in Israel; by the way, Israel was never named, by The Lord who established it for His chosen people, as Palestine. That name is abhorrent, as it is currently being used by some within the current U.S. administration.)...

... and "our enemies" (of the U.S.A. and of its rightful, legal citizens) were known as the ones who hated the Jews and the Christians, ...
... and they were known to be Communistic and Socialistic in their philosophy and ideology.

... and "our enemies" (not mine, personally; they are The Lord Adonai YHVH God's enemies; I am "for" Adonai YHVH God; I pray for them, as I become aware of each one.) were known to be ones who hated life in the womb (some are inconsistent in this -- they love their own children, but think that the unborn children of people of "certain" races, or of some other ideology or theology, deserve to be murdered in the womb! That is hypocrisy and bigotry and racial discrimination!). They are those (some) who would beat, torture their wives and children, when they thought it was the right thing to do, as men do in countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and in any country that claims allah is who it wants to please).

... historically, those who have been called "our enemies" would fit the ideology (though I have not shared its many misunderstandings of Truth from its Qu'ran [Koran]) have been known to be Islamic and have been following the teachings written in the Qu'ran (Koran).
No Islamic or Islamist who reads or studies the writings in the Qu'ran (Koran) can say he / she is a moderate. It teaches hatred and war against any who will not submit to its false god, allah.
It contains lies about Jews and true Christians. Adolf Hitler met with the imam to discuss plans. They agreed on many points of ideology!
So, for that reason, and many more (which are all based on truth about Islam), those who follow it, read it (as believing the ideologies taught in it) would be considered to be "enemies" by The Lord our God, The God of Israel, Who is The Adonai and Elohim of both the Jews and the true Christians, who are both "for" Peace (true, lasting Peace -- Shalom).

Please understand. Read all things with as high a level of spiritual understanding as you are able, according to how The Lord Adonai YHVH Elohim has designed you! We do not "hate" Islamists! YHVH God sees them as "enemies" of the state of Israel, and of His people Israel. But we Americans do not "hate" people. We "hate" the sin of any people, including our own sin(s)!!!

We pray we will, submitted (in agape Love) to YHVH God, through our belief and trust in His Son, Yeshua The Messiah, be enabled by Him, to live our lives in such a way that it is seen that we abhor and detest our own selfishness, our self-seeking plans (from our old selves, that we continue to battle against, within our minds and souls, not against our brothers and sisters, fellow humans, in this world!), our pride, our personal "rights" and expectations, hopes, and dreams, that are all vanity and vexation of spirit, as King Solomon wrote.
We must take upon ourselves, as YHVH God enables us, through His Holy Spirit (the Ruach ha Chodesh), the character, the traits, and the image of, Messiah Yeshua, as He continues to sanctify us, in our souls and our being, through His Grace and Might.
YHVH God's Power is agape Love! He does not fight with weapons, or murder people. He hopes they will love Him as He has shown them genuine, "perfect" Love. His agape Love is able to cover all sins!, if we but repent, confess our sins, and forsake them, as King David did, in the Scriptures of The God of Israel, El Elyon.

... and "our enemies" now reside (and many do not call themselves Islamic; however, their ideas they live by are very similar, and contain rebellion, at heart), some even have permission to dwell, within the borders of the U.S.A.
I don't know why they would want to stay. (don't write me to explain; I know more than this last statement would lead you to suppose, friends)
I believe it is high time for all who follow, adhere to, or "like" or "honor" the writings in the Qu'ran (Koran), to leave America (the U.S.A.) and return to their original locations, or to where that ideology is "wanted," and "where it is agreed to" by the people in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Iraq or Iran, as well as Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Yes, I do realize that there are various factions within Islam.
Yes, I do realize that some Islamists cannot "get along with" others who also claim to be faithful followers of Islam or of Mohammed's writings.
Yes, I realize that there are people, in America, who claim to be true believers in Yeshua The Messiah, or call themselves followers of Christ Jesus, ... but a true believer (according to YHVH God's Word, which "is" Truth!) in Messiah Yeshua, is able to live alongside other believers, and able to dwell peacefully with one another, with their neighbors, because they have a Spirit inside them Who "is" Peace, Who "is" Love. (genuine Love; not human love; Divine Love, from El Elyon, El Shaddai, The Lord YHVH God Almighty)
( you can tell this is difficult to explain in words only )
( those who know The Lord YHVH, through His Son, Yeshua The Messiah / Christ Jesus, will understand what I mean to say, in this post; others will not be able to; this is not an insult; it is merely the Truth )

Lest anyone assume I am being quite unkind, or even hateful, or prideful, or self-righteous, in saying this, please read this next statement:

Those people who do not and will not adhere to, honor, "love (by The Almighty God's definition of it since He is The Author of agape Love itself)," and take upon themselves (deep down into their souls) the beliefs written down (not kept secret) by our Founding Fathers, men such as
Patrick Henry, and
George Washington, and
Thomas Jefferson, and
James Madison, and
John Adams, and ...

Dr. Benjamin Rush,
John Hancock,
Francis Hopkinson,
Elbridge Gerry,
Stephen Hopkins,
Roger Sherman,
Robert Morris,
Lewis Morris,
John Witherspoon, among others, ...

... if those who call themselves Islamic in their ideology, will not adhere to all that agrees with what is written in the Jewish Scriptures (the Torah, especially), and the Old and New Covenant scriptures, many true Christian believers call The Word of (YHVH) God, ...

... then, it is imperative (as the former Prime Minister of Australia said, not very long ago) that they leave the country of America (in his case, he told them to leave Australia), because they misunderstand the reason why they "should have come" to make their new home in the land where men are free to not be oppressed by some government or leaders telling them which religion, or beliefs, to believe and adhere to, ...
and ...

... they should return, permanently, to the land where their ideology (it is "not" a religion; that has been spoken about by wise men, already, so that statement is a 'done deal') of Islam is the main ideology people believe and "like."

Those who do not like The God of The Bible, Adonai YHVH, The Creator and Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel, will not "fit in" in America, in truth, among true (legal) American citizens, who fear YHVH God.
We, who are "true" American citizens (my definition is my own, but based on Truth), who fear Adonai YHVH God and walk in His ways (here, I define it), ... can (are able to) live among those who adhere to Islam.
And we will not seek to kill, or hate, or harm / hurt, anyone who adheres to the tenets of Islam.
But an Islamist is unable to see us as "friends" or as "comrades."
That is only from the viewpoint, or "side" of the Islamist.
They are taught to hate Jews and Christians. (vehemently)
They are taught to destroy Jews and Christians.
True believers in YHVH God, and believers in Messiah Yeshua, have never been taught to hate, or destroy, any other person, of any belief!!!

From the viewpoint, or "side," of the true American citizen, by my definition, ... we do not hate Islamists.
We pray for them, we treat them with dignity and as equal human beings whom YHVH God has created, for His Good purposes, and for His Glory.

Those who are Islamic, in their own personal ideology, however, should return to such nations as Saudi Arabia, or Egypt, or Iran, or Pakistan, ... where they can be tied in closely with Islam, where it is promoted by, pushed by, ... and adhered to by, the Islamic leaders who hold the control over those who live in their "country," their "land (sheikhs, wealthy oil well owners, oppressive land-owners who do not share their wealth with their fellow countrymen and women and children who are "not" born within their own personal family "line" -- is that love in its truest sense?)."

They will just never "fit in (only from their own viewpoint)," nor will they want to, to choose to, believe in and accept as Truth, what "true" American citizens believe and follow (if they are born again of Water and of The Spirit of YHVH God, through believing trust in His Son, Who willingly shed His Blood as the atoning sacrifice, to pay the penalty for their sins, for all time), ... unless they are willing to accept the agape love and YHVH God's free gift of deliverance from eternal condemnation and damnation, which was bought through the shed Blood of Messiah Yeshua / Christ Jesus.
We will all stand before The Judgment Seat of Messiah Yeshua, one day.
We will be judged according to "the deeds done in our body." (while we lived on earth)
I know I cannot depend on, or lean on, anything I have, or have done, ... to stand before Him, at that Judgment Seat of Messiah Yeshua. I will only be able to stand, because of my belief in, trust in, His atoning Redemption He did for me. I am nothing. He is everything! He gave me faith to believe, Grace to receive, and understanding to know and "see" that His free gift of deliverance from eternal condemnation was for me! HalleluYah!!!
An added note:
Islam will never conquer all the people in this world.
It will utterly fail in its attempts to overcome, subjugate, and defeat or destroy all the Jews (Hebrews, which is actually more accurate; yes, those who have a Hebrew heritage have told me this is more correct) and all true believers / true Christians (those who believe in, trust in, submit to, and obey The Lamb of God, Yeshua The Messiah, Who shed His Blood to pay the debt we owed to YHVH God, to satisfy His Justice, which is also merciful, righteous, just and good).
It will fail only because it does not acknowledge Who is The One, True God, El Elyon, Adonai YHVH Elohim, The God of Israel, The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
It goes against The One Who made all things in this universe, and nothing is able to stand against Him! He has all power in Heaven and in earth, over all things.
I praise His Holy Name!!!
He alone is The God Most High, YHWH Sabaoth, Melech ha Olam, The King Eternal, The King of the universe!

Islam has no power in it.
Its god is false.
It is based on lies & hatred.
Ask any former Muslim, who has found the Truth.
They know, now.
(and you can, too, if you do not yet know...)

Even King Nebuchadnezzar, and King Darius, and King Cyrus, among others, have acknowledged that The One, True God (Adonai echad), The God of Daniel, a man of Israel, who served under all three of these kings, in Babylonia, and in Persia (and Medo-Persia), is "the living God, and steadfast for ever, and His Kingdom (is) that which shall not be destroyed, and His Dominion shall be even unto the end." -- Daniel 6:26 (these are words decreed by King Darius)

King Nebuchadnezzar declared, "I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed The Most High, and I praised and honored Him that liveth for ever, Whose Dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His Kingdom is from generation to generation:
"And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He doeth according to His Will in the army of Heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay His hand, or say unto Him, What doest Thou?
"At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.
"Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honour The King of Heaven, all Whose Works are Truth, and His Ways judgment, and those that walk in pride He is able to abase."
Daniel 4:34-37
( I am aware that the former dictator over Iraq, S. Hussein, believed himself to be the "new" King Nebuchadnezzar, and S. Hussein promoted, pushed, Islam upon his people he ruled over. But what S. Hussein taught and did goes against what King Nebuchadnezzar believed! )
To clarify a few things:

In other words, those who adhere to, and agree with, the Judaeo-Christian doctrine / principles on which this country's laws and government were originally based on, are the only people who will be able (enabled by The Lord YHVH God) to live in this land in true Peace among their brethren, under the laws as they were originally written by, and were intended to be understood by all who dwell in the U.S.A., by the men who signed the Declaration of Independence and those who signed the Constitution of the United States of America (one may need to gain a "new" understanding of what I mean by the word "Peace" that I use, here).

The doctrine & beliefs of these Founding Fathers have been written about, over and over, by these men who helped established this country (after 1600) to be the land of the free (with responsibility to YHVH God and to all other men), and the home of the brave. This land "we" call America was meant to be a nation of people dedicated to living for and serving ... The Lord Almighty, The God of Israel, Who alone reigns over all the earth and over all the universe and all those who dwell upon the earth He made and sustains.
Our nation's Founders acknowledged that they only wanted The Lord YHVH God as their king. They wanted no other sovereign ruler over them!

Others, of other belief systems (in one sense) ... do not belong in America (their "hearts" are not in it or for what and Who it stands for). That is because they are against what "true Americans" believe and have as their goal -- to love, serve and acknowledge The Lord YHVH God Almighty as Creator, Redeemer and King of all, ... to do good for all men, and ... to love their brothers and sisters (love is an action, not a feeling; see the writings of Charles Finney, for one), ...who are the Jews and the Christians, and others who are willing to dwell "in {true} Peace among them," *without* contention or strife, or bearing false witness against one's neighbor, or hatred that leads to murder.
... and "true Americans" are willing to share what we have with all others who are willing to listen, who have "teachable hearts," and to learn true Wisdom and the Truth (from YHVH God's perspective, since He *is* Truth, and He rules over all men and for all time; He cannot lie; He knows all things and has all power over all things in the universe).

The Lord YHVH changeth not.
He "is" Truth, Understanding, Compassion and Love. (Love in its truest sense)
He has chosen His own.
He, alone, may choose whomever He wishes to choose to Love.

He will not allow us to have any other gods before Him.
(that's a good thing)
He will not tolerate other ideologies to be promoted that are against His own.
(that is not unreasonable; it is for the protection of those who are His; and it is fitting for Him to do this)
He is a jealous God.
He visits the iniquities of the fathers unto the third and fourth generations of those who hate Him. And He shows Mercy unto thousands (of generations) of them that love Him, and keep His Commandments (before their eyes, to think about and meditate on, and learn, and take heed to His Commands).

He will not allow, for ever, the evil that is currently going on, against His chosen people, in Israel, or in America.

He is pro-Life, pro-Israel, and pro-true-believers-in-Yeshua.

He wants all to come to the knowledge of The Truth.
He does not want that any should perish (forever; the second death; eternal death & separation from YHVH God for ever).
He "will (it's His Will to) have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of The Truth." -- I Timothy 2:4 (a letter written by the Apostle Paul, Rav Shaul)
See also II Timothy 3:1-7.
See also Paul's statement in (the letter to the) Philippians 3:7-21.
See also Colossians 2:2b-3.

... and there is no true god named allah.
That is the name of a demon, or of the devil, who appeared as an "angel of light" in a cave, outside Mecca, to Mohammed.
Mohammed told the other tribal leaders that they had to worship "his" god, allah, and they ran him off. They threatened to kill him.
He was a rebel, a murderer, an immoral man and a liar / deceiver.
He had to leave. (all of this was shared by a man who knows the truth about Mohammed; Mohammed wrote it down, so others would know; he only wrote down part of it; historians wrote down the rest)
... he is a liar, just like his ''father,'' the devil, which means deceiver.
allah is not the same as YHVH God.
Just because someone goes around an area of land and kills, tortures, or maims, all who will not follow his own personal god, ... does not make that person wise, or worthy of following!
Mohammed did that, and more.

Please, please, learn The Truth! YHVH God is One. There is no other. He made all things, and He made you!
He loves you and does not want you to perish in the lake of fire, at the end of time!
There is only One Way to get to Him, to know Him, and to dwell with Him in perfect Peace, in Paradise, and in Heaven! ......

Please, stay informed.
Those who do not know ... are used, abused, by those who have an evil plan to destroy you.

The time is short.
Please, if you have not yet done it, "repent, the end is near." -- these words were spoken by One Who was there at creation, and ... is still alive....

Get to know Him.
His Name is Yeshua the Messiah of YHVH God.
He died to pay the penalty for all your sins. (for ever)
He is still alive! He rose from the dead! He was seen alive on earth by over 500 people, at once, and He remained on earth for 40 more days, after He was resurrected, to teach His disciples what He wanted them to do. (to live in His agape Love, toward others, and to show others The Way, The Truth and The Life)
Why? He died, taking upon Himself the penalty I deserved, for my sins and iniquities, my transgressions against the Holy God, The Lord Almighty, Adonai YHVH, The I AM, El Elyon (The Most High), ... so that I could live with Him, for ever, in His Heaven, with all who will also believe in Him and follow Him!

When you have read at least 12 writings, from the originals (they're available online; or you can learn about these men, online, reading short biographies about each one), ... penned by all these men, you will have a good idea of what doctrine our Founding Fathers held to.

These were not simple men.
They were men who feared (reverenced, honored with their entire lives) Adonai YHVH God, The God of Israel, Who sent His Son, Yeshua the Messiah, to earth to live, suffer, die and rise from the dead on the third day after He died on the Roman execution stake, just outside the city walls of Jerusalem (Yerushalayim).

Another note:

Some people, nowadays, may not think they should call America a "Christian nation." However, it "was" founded upon principles and the doctrine taught in God's Word, The Holy Scriptures, The Torah and The Prophets of The Old Testament, and also of The New Covenant (The New Testament), The Bible.
So, ... perhaps it should be called a Judaeo-Christian nation.

But by no means could it ever be called Islamic, or be said to be related to what Islam's sharia law "enforces," or any tenet taught in the Qu'ran (Koran). "Submission" under Islam is a misuse of the true, inherent meaning of that word. It involves blind, fearful obedience to an oppressive, hate-filled, dictatorial, repressive, ignorant (in the dictionary definition sense, folks; lacking in knowledge), unjustly abusive and holds its "captives" (adherents, followers of Islam) in bondage to its horrifying life-style (especially torturous and unjust in its treatment of women and female children).

True Christianity, or what some still call The Way of Messiah Yeshua, ... involved not a blind faith, but a faith based on knowledge, on Truth, on what has been shown to be true, and will be, that YHVH God has confirmed, by bringing about, .. that He told / had His true prophets write down, such as King David, who also wrote prophetic words, and Elijah, Elisha, and Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Ezekiel, and Zechariah, Micah, Malachi, and others.
