Family of 14 on a New Adventure!

My son sums this video up as, "Awesome!"  He wants to go right now.  I can't blame him.  A large, happy family sells their home and car to live all together on the road.  They travel in the spacious RV, the kids camp out most nights, homeschool in the morning with their mother and father, and explore the world during the day.  The father and oldest daughter work via the internet to support the family.  Just amazing.  I don't know that it would be right for us.... but maybe.  I certainly am thrilled that they are living such a wonderful life together.

Happy Trails!

Just a fascinating story.  A retired teacher who has travelled and camped all across America on horseback.  I would love to learn more about her travels and experience.  Does she forage?  How does she do things such as laundry, healthcare?  They touched only slightly on this saying that her daily camp duties took her 4.5 hours a day.  I am intrigued and will be looking into this more.

Hero Worship

I found this thought provoking.  I have enjoyed the stories of Superman, Spiderman and Star Wars.  I have even shared them with my children in the hopes of drawing out their courageous and strong characters.  While I did not associate it with worship..... my children do seem unduly enamoured of these 'heroes'.  Consider... does your child want the tidy whiteys or the unders with Spideman all over them????

Hero cults were one of the most distinctive features of ancient Greek religion. A hero was more than human but less than a god, and various kinds of supernatural figures came to be assimilated to the class of heroes; the distinction between a hero and a god was less than certain, especially in the case of Heracles, the most prominent, but a typical hero.

Is it possible that the ancient Greek practice of Hero worship has resurfaced today and many people don't even realize it?

Could we have been tricked into participating in Hero Worship, and not even know it?

No Longer The Time Of Favor

I'd like to share a prophetic word that deeply convicted my own heart.  I know I have not given my all, always.  And He definitely deserves it.

I am calling. I am calling because the time is short. I am calling for your faithfulness. The time is coming and is at hand where your comfort zone is to be removed. You pray for good things. You pray for comfortable things. You pray for wealth. At one time these things would have been added to you if your heart were Mine, but now you hold your heart as a ransom for things.

You say, but I have loved You. No you haven’t.
You say, I have served You. No you haven’t.
You say, I have given to You. No you haven’t

The Fallen One has called for your testing. "Skin for skin, bone for bone. Remove the material comforts and we will see who serves The Lord or who serves me. We will see."

I have granted that testing. I will test you and many will fail, only to be given over to that final test. I am moving and time is mine. I will call My faithful and remove My lamp stand. Then those who have been deceived, fooled, will be left behind. The day is fast approaching when My people will no longer want to be a lamp on a stand, a city on a hill. They will be in hiding, waiting for my return while Death waits at their door.

To my faithful I say this, your love for Me has been proved, and continues to be proved, stand fast, stay the course, I will soon return to call you up to Me.

I urge all of you to dig deep into the Lord and His word.  There is only salvation in Yeshua.  All else is shifting sand.

40 Years of Pain

I must commemorate 40 years since abortion was legalized in the United States.
You all know how much I love little babies.  You all know how much I rejoice when I am pregnant and feel that life growing, swimming and kicking inside of me.
Of course, I understand how a woman can feel overwhelmed and afraid upon learning she is pregnant.  Maybe money is so tight.  Maybe the man in her life is not supportive or worse, is abusive.  Maybe she cannot forget her own abusive and frightening childhood.  Maybe she fears she will fail as a mother.
I saw a quote not long ago.  I can't remember it word for word, and can't remember where I saw it.
Abortion is the surest sign that we are failing women miserably.
It is indeed.
I weep to think of the suffering caused by abortion.  Not only the babe who is killed, but the mother who walks away so deeply hollowed and wounded.
Let us lift a prayer that we all learn to be more loving to those who are in need and bring an end to this act that heals no one and destroys millions.

I Agree With James Mattis

I recently came across a quote that led me to a little research on James Mattis for use in my homeschooling when my children are older and will be attacking larger, harder subjects than the multiplication tables.  The quote was poignant and I knew it had to be added to our copywork.

"I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I'll kill you all."
—James Mattis

To learn more about James Mattis -

He seems to be an intriguing and genuine man, of which our society needs many more.

But now I hear he is being fired.

And I hear "Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders.... “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed."

And today my local news story touts new military opportunities to women.

It begs the question.

Are women so eager to gain powerful military positions that they will gladly agree to destroy their own people?

Unfortunately, men or women, it won't be long before they find those who will gladly agree to shoot anyone they are ordered to.  Using violent video games, zombie flicks and now trainings, and psychotropic drugs, it will be easy to dehumanize the masses and create an efficient army that does not question the elite and their plans.

For the most part, I am an average housewife.  I spend my days washing dishes, laundry, and changing diapers.  I teach my kids the alphabet and math.  I feed the chickens and plant tomatoes in the garden. And don't misunderstand my interest in Mattis.  I am definitely not a war monger.

But I love my family.  And I have to say....

"I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me and my children, I'll kill you all."

No joke.

Romans 10:4 - The End of the Law?

While looking at some of the Torah resources I now read regularly I came across a post regarding Romans 10:4, which is commonly translated as, "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes."

Here you can read several bible translations of the same verse.

For the most part they all say exactly the same thing except

The Common English Bible which reads,
"Christ is the goal of the Law, which leads to righteousness for all who have faith in God."

And the Orthodox Jewish Bible,
"For Moshiach is the goal of the Torah as a means to being YITZDAK IM HASHEM, for all who have emunah."

So I fell back on my greatest resource when I come across a dicotomy or confusion in my reading of the word of YWHW.

Hebrew and Greek Interlinear - ACTUAL transcripts of the scriptures with each word translated and a common translation to the side for ease of understanding.

Once again I found that not all is as it seems....

I pull up the Romans chapter 10 pdf and go down to read verse 4 and find...

not the word 'end'

but the word


So consider the verse using this phrase instead.

Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha Mashiach is the consummation of the law for righteousness to all who believe.

While there is indeed some finalization and fulfillment in consummation.... it does not mean the END!  Indeed when it pertains to our marriage with our own spouse, and we join in that act of consummation, is our marriage ended?

Or is it.... Fulfilled?

And then driven forward in our purpose of togetherness.

So is the Torah to the believer of Yeshua Ha Mashiach.

Yeshua completed the act necessary to consummate the law, drawing us into a lasting covenant marriage with Him.  It is not ended, but fulfilled.

A Message to America: Jonathon Cahn Addresses Presidential Inauguration Prayer Breakfast

Jonathan Cahn, author of 'The Harbinger' and pastor/rabbi of Beth Israel Messianic Congregation of Wayne, NJ, gives the key note address at the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC. 01/21/13

This is so incredibly powerful. He speaks boldly and points out biblical prophesy that our nation is facing. It definitely entices me to get his book immediately and learn more about our country's current events and scripture.  Specifically he discusses the history and prophesy surrounding Ground Zero.

He also shared these words of Abraham Lincoln, "And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God … and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord." My eyes filled with tears. How I long for a leader of our country to speak such words now.

Unfortunately this event was attended only by like minded people and has already been afforded its half paragraph niche in mass media coverage while the masses gathered to praise Obama and lift their prayers to ... apparently America and the spirits of our ancestors.

As Yeshua said time and again, "He who has ears, let him hear!"

In Times of Trouble

If you falter in a time of trouble,
    how small is your strength!
Rescue those being led away to death;
    hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,”
    does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it?
    Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?

Proverbs 24:10-12

Some Favorite Odes to the Trees

By Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree;
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in
Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

It was an old Jewish custom to plant a cedar tree when a boy was born and a pine tree when a girl was born. When two people were married, branches from these trees were used to make poles for their wedding canopy.... (The custom of planting of a "marriage tree" at the birth of a child is called neti'ah shel simchah, "a joyous planting.") On a spiritual level, this pictures being "grafted in" and made part of the marriage canopy of Yeshua, etc.

Psalm 1:1-3
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    Nor stands in the path of sinners,
    Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
    Planted by the rivers of water,
    That brings forth its fruit in its season,
    Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

Psalm 52:8
But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.

Psalm 92:12
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

Psalm 96:12
Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord.

Proverbs 3:18
She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who retain her.

Proverbs 11:30
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.

Revelation 22:14
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

Transcript of Jonathan Cahn Speech - Message To America



January 21, 2013

Members of the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast Committee, Senators, Members of Congress, Governors and government representatives, Ambassadors and delegates from other nations, ministers and people of God, friends, and media

We are gathered here in Washington DC, America’s capital city, on January 21, 2013, the morning of the Presidential Inauguration, with one agenda and one purpose, to come before the Lord and in His presence to seek His face and pray for His blessing, His will, and His purposes to be accomplished for this nation, for its government, for its leaders, for its president, and for its people.  And it is fitting that we do this on this day which more than any other represents the future of our nations.  We are here to inaugurate God’s own purposes.

We’ve come here from every part of this land and from every background and persuasion to stand before the Almighty, Who transcends politics, movements, and men, and before whom kings and kingdoms rise and fall.   Presidents change, political parties come, from ages past,  and go, and nation’s ascend and descend, but we come before Him who changes not but who remains the same yesterday, today, and forever.  We come before Him, before whom men and women, kings and prophets, peoples and nations have come to seek His face in troubled times.  We come to pray for America.

But how do we do that?  How do we pray for America?  Do we pray for riches, for power, for the success of our national agendas?  The Scripture tells us that God hears the prayers of His people.  But that we must pray according to His will.  If a man has a terminal disease, we don’t pray for an increase in wealth, we pray for healing.  And if a city lies in danger of destruction, we don’t speak flowery words, we sound the alarm.   We pray for blessing.  But true blessing only comes in the will of God.  So we must pray according to that will.  And we must not be afraid to speak the truth.  We must give voice what must be spoken.  We must sound the alarm that must be sounded.  We must address what must be addressed. And so this message will not be politically correct, nor will it be political.  It will be biblical.  It will be true.  And wherever it falls, so be it.  I will not hold back.  And if I offend you, I apologize but I cannot apologize for offending you.  Without truth, there is no love.   On a day that so embodies the future course of our nation, it is critical that we must both pray and speak what is true.

In ancient times, there was a nation known as the kingdom of Israel.   It had been founded on God’s word, dedicated to His will, and consecrated to His purposes.  And God blessed it with prosperity, power, security, peace, and a place at the head of nations.  But the people of Israel made a fatal mistake, in the midst of their blessings, they turned away from God.  They began to remove Him from their lives.  Step by step they ruled Him out of their culture, out of their government, out of their economy, out of their public square, out of the instruction and lives of their children, they ruled Him out of the kingdom.   They would still at times invoke His name but it was increasingly hollow and meaningless.  They had made themselves strangers to the God of their fathers and their foundation.

And as God was driven from their lives, they brought in foreign gods and idols to replace Him, gods of sensuality, materialism, violence, idols of wealth, carnality, and sexual promiscuity.  They abandoned the ways of God, the laws of God, the standards of God for immorality.  As the prophets cried out, they now called evil,’good,’ and good, ‘evil.’  What they once knew to be immoral, they now celebrated, and what they once knew to be right, they now warred against.  It was a culture turned in upon itself, a civilization at war against the very foundation on which it had been established.  And the righteous, who simply remained true to what they had once all known to be true, were now vilified, marginalized, mocked, labeled ‘intolerant,’ increasingly banned from the public square, and, ultimately, persecuted.  The nation’s culture grew increasingly vulgar, godless, and darkened.  They now defiled, ridiculed, and blasphemed the name of God. It was as if a spiritual amnesia had overtaken the kingdom, as if they had never known God or His ways.  And they descended into the darkest sins of the nations which surrounded them.  They offered up their children as sacrifices to the gods, on the altars and fires of Baal and Molech.  And they now stood under the shadow of judgment and in danger of destruction.

And God called out to them, to return, to come back, to be saved from destruction.  He sent to them seers and prophets to wake them up, to call them back.  But they wouldn’t listen.  They mocked the prophets and persecuted them.  And they hardened their hearts.  And finally something happened that brought them into the first stage of judgment.

But there was another civilization that was likewise founded on God’s word, dedicated to His will, and consecrated to His purposes, from its very inception – America.  Those who came to these shores four centuries ago to found a new civilization did so by dedicating it to God, committing it for His purposes and glory.  America was to be a city on a hill, a civilization to which others would look.  It was to be a holy commonwealth.  And so they modeled it after Israel of the Bible.  They brought forth its first governments in the name of Jesus and for the glory of God.  They established its first school system for the purpose of teaching the Word of God.  And they foretold that inasmuch as America would follow in the ways of God, that God would bless it, that it would become the most powerful, the most prosperous, the most blessed nation on earth, the head of nations.  And it would all come true.

America would become the most blessed nation on earth, a refuge for the world’s exiles, a light for the world’s oppressed, a beacon against the dark forces of tyranny which threatened to engulf the world.  America was blessed with prosperity, power, security, peace, and a place at the head of nations.  America was blessed as no nation in history had ever been blessed.

But something happened to the city on the hill.  As the people of ancient Israel, in the midst of their blessings, committed a fatal error, so have we.  We too have, as a nation, turned from God.  We, too, have removed Him from our lives.  Step by step, we, too, have ruled Him out of our culture, out of our government, out of our economy, out of our public square, out of the instruction and lives of our children, we, too have made God a stranger.    And though we still at times invoke His name, it rings increasingly hollow and meaningless.  We have made ourselves strangers to the God of our fathers.

And as we have driven God from our national life, we have brought in other gods and idols to replace him, gods of sensuality, materialism, violence, idols of wealth, carnality, and sexual promiscuity.  And as did Israel, so, we too have abandoned ways of God, the laws of God, and the standards of God, for immorality.  The nation that was established to bring the Word and light of God to the world, now fills the earth with pornography.  We too now call evil ‘good,’ and good, ‘evil.’    And what we once knew to be immoral, we now celebrate, and what we once knew to be right, we now war against.  American culture has become turned in upon itself, a civilization at war against the very foundation on which it has been established.  And those, who simply remain true to what had always been known as true, are now vilified,  marginalized, mocked, labeled ‘intolerant,’ and increasingly banned from the public square, and, ultimately, persecuted.

We have now reached the point, this day, that a minister was driven out of the public square, barred from praying at the inaugural service for the simple reason that years ago he preached a sermon simply saying what the Bible has always clearly said regarding sin.  It is a new America in which one can be banned from the public square simply for believing the Bible, where profanity it treated as holy and the Holy as profane, a new America where the Bible is treated as contraband and nativity scenes are seen as dangerous.

Our culture has grown increasingly vulgar, godless, and darkened.  We too now defile, ridicule, and blaspheme the name of God.  It wasn’t that long ago that American television closed its broadcasting days with sermons. Now our televisions and computers screens are filled with word and images once unimaginable and God and Jesus have now become objects of comedy and mockery.  It’s as if a spiritual amnesia has overtaken the land.  The Lord asked Israel, “Can a nation forget its God?”  And yet Israel forgot.  And now we too have forgotten.  America too has forgotten her God.
And we too, as a nation, have partaken in the darkest of sins.  Tomorrow is also a milestone of history.  Tomorrow marks the fortieth anniversary of the day that America legalized the killing of its unborn children.  Israel offered up thousands of its children.  America has offered up millions.  Fifty million souls are not here today.  Fifty million people will not be here, watching or cheering at the inauguration.  They’re silent, for their lives were legislated out of existence, even from this city.    And in order to hide the magnitude of our moral descent, we redefine words and change their meanings on this and other sins.  And yet a thousand apostate ministers swearing on a thousand Bibles will not change a jot or tittle of God’s word.   Though silent, they cry out in bearing witness to the darkest of our sins.  And God hears them.  And as He spoke through the ancient prophets to Israel, so His words now echo down to us, “When you lift up your hands to be in prayer I will not listen.  For your hands are covered with blood.”

The city on the hill has grown dark.  Its lamp has grown dim.  Its glory is fading.  For God is not mocked.  No nation can war against the very source of its blessings and expect those blessings to remain. And as it was with ancient Israel, the city on the hill now stands under the shadow of judgment.


How does judgment come to a nation?  After defying all of God’s calls and warnings, the nation of Israel would experienced something unprecedented.  It was the opening stage of judgment.  God removed one of Israel’s blessings.  Years before the nation’s destruction, He allowed its hedge of protection to be lifted.  He allowed an enemy to make a strike into the land.  It was a wake-up call to avert national destruction.  Nothing else would reach them. The strike was limited and temporary.  The nation was now given a period of time to turn back to God or enter into judgment.

This first opening biblical sign of national warning and judgment is this initial removal of the nation’s hedge of protection.  So it came to pass in America on September 11, 2001.  It was on that day that we witnessed the nation’s hedge of protection removed.  An enemy was allowed to make a strike on the land.  As with Israel, the strike was limited and temporary.  It was a wake-up call.  And for a short-time it looked as if America would wake up.  It looked as if we were on the verge of a national revival. People flocked to churches and spoke of God.  And then, a few weeks later, it was all over.  There was no revival.  There was no change of course.  America continued down it course of spiritual departure from God but did so now with even more fervor.  Eleven years after 9/11, the nation stands not closer to God, but much farther away.

As I saw the smoke rising out of New York City that day, and then as I stood at the corner of Ground Zero, a revelation began coming to me.  The revelation would take the form of a book called The Harbinger.  The Harbinger was release last year and from the first week of its release it’s become a national best seller, spreading across the nation and even into the Halls of Congress.
The revelation of The Harbinger is this:  There exists an ancient mystery that lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the American economy - A mystery so precise that it actually reveals the actions of American leaders before they take them, the exact words of American leaders, before they speak them., a mystery so exact that it gives the dates, even the hours of some of the most dramatic days in recent history.  In the last days of ancient Israel, before its destruction, nine harbingers, nine prophetic signs of national judgment, appeared in the land.  Those same nine harbingers are now reappearing on American soil.  Some have appeared in New York City.  Some have appeared in Washington, DC.  Some have involved the highest leaders of the land, even the president of the United States and they touch every realm, the political, the economic, the cultural, the spiritual, and affect every American and every American’s future.

The harbingers are revealed through an ancient Scripture, the vow that Israel made after that first strike of warning.  It appears as Isaiah 9:10.  Instead of repentance, they responded to the warning with defiance.  They said this: “The bricks have fallen. BUT we will rebuild with hewn stone.  The sycamores have been cut down, BUT we will plant cedars in their place.”  What they were saying was this:  “God, you won’t humble us, you won’t cause us to return.  We will continue on our course.  We will continue to abandon your ways.  We will defy you and even more than before.  By our own efforts, we will rebuild and come back stronger than before.

This vow of defiance would seal their fate and usher in their destruction.  And it’s the key to nine harbinger of judgment.   We don’t have the time to even begin to open up the mysteries of the harbingers except to say that they are all manifesting now to America, and to touch on just a few.

The Fifth Harbinger, the Stone of Judgment.  For this to manifest, a particular kind of stone must be chiseled out of mountain rock and placed on the ground of destruction, where the strike occurred.  Three years after 9/11, the Stone of Judgment appeared and was lowered onto the pavement of Ground Zero where a ceremony took place, with American leaders pronouncing vows of defiance over the stone.

The Sixth Harbinger, the Sign of the Sycamore, a biblical warning of national judgment. For this to manifest, a sycamore must be struck down at the ground of destruction.  In the last moments of 9/11, as the last tower came crashing to the ground, it sent forth a shock wave and a beam that strikes an object.  The object was a tree.  The tree was a sycamore.  The Biblical sign of national judgment - the sycamore was fallen.

The Seventh Harbinger called in Hebrew – the Erez.  This sign of judgment appeared in the sky at the corner of Ground Zero two years after the calamity.

The ninth harbinger, the vow of judgment itself, the vow of bricks and sycamores, as recorded in Isaiah 9:10.   It very utterance in the last days of ancient Israel, would lead the nation to destruction.  For this harbinger to manifest, an American leader would have to proclaim the vow of judgment from the capitol city, and it would have to be linked to the attack, to 9/11.  If you see this happen, know that it is a stunningly clear sign that your nation is under judgment.

On the day after 9/11, the United States Congress gathered on Capitol Hill, the same place where the inauguration will happen, to give America’s response to the calamity – just as ancient Israel had presented its response to its calamity in Isaiah 9:10.  The man appointed to speak for the nation was the Senate Majority, Tom Daschle.  He makes his way to the podium and presents the nation’s response.  At the end of his speech, the words of the ancient vow that brings national judgment come forth from his mouth. He says this:  “there is a passage in the Bible, from Isaiah, that I think speaks to all of us at times like this. “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone…” He then speaks of the tree that is struck down.  He speaks it without even realizing there is an actual tree that was struck down and just discovered that day.  He speaks of the stone of judgment that is to be placed Ground Zero, which will come to pass three years after he declares it.  He has no idea what he’s doing, but the vow of judgment is pronounced.  Israel’s fatal vow becomes America’s and is recorded in the Annals of Congress.
And it is ominous.  It will set the nation’s course.  It will lead to the next national shaking, a shaking that won’t involve buildings, but the implosion of American power itself, the collapse of the American economy, a collapse that still affects everything we do.  In The Harbinger it is called the Second Shaking.   And behind this second shaking, this economic implosion, likes a stream of still more ancient mysteries.  We don’t have the time to speak of these except to mention this one mind boggling reality.

There was a day given in the Bible, called on the Hebrew calendar, the 29th day of Elul.  Once, every seven years, on that date, Elul 29, the nation’s financial accounts would be wiped away, all accounts of credit and debt, wiped away.  It was originally meant to be a blessing, but as Israel turned away from God, it became part of a judgment, a sign for a nation that had driven God out of its life, and pursued idols of wealth, a sign that strikes that nations financial realm.

The peak of the collapse of the American economy took place at the end of September 2008.  On that day the Stock Market crashed 777 points.  It was the greatest crash in Wall Street and American history.  When did it happen?  The greatest collapse in American history took place on the 29th day of Elul, the exact day given in the Bible to strike a nation’s financial realm and wiped out its financial accounts, the sign given to a nation under judgment.

But Elul 29 is part of a seven year mystery.  What happens if we go back seven years from that greatest crash in American history?  It takes us to September 2001, the month of 9/11.  But something else happened that month – the other greatest Stock Market crash in American history up to that date. And when did that take place?  The other greatest Stock Market crash in American history took place on the exact same Biblical day, the day appointed to wipe away a nation’s financial accounts – the 29th day of Elul.  The two greatest crashes in American history up to those days – both took place on the exact same biblical day, on the one day appointed to strike a nation’s financial realm, a sign to a nation that has driven God out of its life.  And as according to the ancient mystery they each took place exactly seven biblical years apart to the exact day, and the exact hours.  And there’s a prophetic mystery here, a prophetic warning, that if America does not return to God, that American prosperity and the American age itself will come to an end.
Since The Harbinger was released, that which was foreshadowed within its pages, is actually coming true.  The harbingers and mysteries haven’t’ stopped, they’ve continued to manifest.  In fact one of them took place this year and involved the president who is about to be inaugurated into office.  And one of the mysteries in The Harbinger, something called The Mystery Ground, actually involves this day, the inauguration, or rather the first inauguration of which this day is a continuation.

It was the day that America as we know it came into existence, April 30, 1789.  It was the day the nation’s first president was sworn into office, the inauguration of George Washington.  Washington placed his hand on the Bible and then gave the first ever presidential address.  And in that speech, on America’s first day as a fully-formed nation, is embedded a prophetic warning.   He said this:

the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation
on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which
Heaven itself has ordained

What was he saying?  He was saying this:  America’s blessing are based its relationship with God.  If America ever disregards or forgets or turns away from the eternal rules of order and right, the laws, the precepts, the standards, and the ways of God, if America ever departs from these, then the blessings of God will be withdrawn from the land.  This is the prophetic warning embedded in our national foundation.  And it is coming true in our day.   We are now witnessing America disregarding the eternal rules of order and right which God has ordained.  And the warning is, that if we do so, then the smiles of Heaven, the blessings of God will be withdrawn.

When judgment came to Israel, the destruction returned to the same ground where the nation had been dedicated to God, the Temple Mount.   The calamity returns to the nation’s ground of consecration.

After Washington gave that prophetic warning, he and the nation’s first Senate and House of Representatives, all proceeded on foot from Federal Hall, the place of the inauguration, to a site especially chosen for the nation’s first government to pray and dedicate America’s future to God.  And that’s what they did on that first inauguration on America’s first day as a formed nation – they prayed and committed the nation’s future to God.  That was the nation’s consecration ground.

If we can find out where that ground is, we will have a mystery.  Where did it take place?  It happened in the nation’s capital.  But the capital then was not Washington, D.C.  It was New York City.  Where?  The place where they dedicated America to God on its first day as a nation, America’s consecration ground.. is .. Ground Zero.  America was dedicated to God at Ground Zero.  The ancient mystery, the calamity returns to the nations ground of consecration.

And it was on that ground that the harbingers appeared.  It was in that soil of America’s consecration that the sycamore grew and was struck down.  And on 9/11 a shock wave went forth from Ground Zero and struck an object, Federal Hall, the very place where Washington was sworn in, and where he gave that prophetic warning of what would happen if America ever turned away from God.  It struck the foundation of America and put a crack in the foundation of that foundation.

And all around Ground Zero, every building was ruined or destroyed… except one.  Which one?  It was the little stone chapel inside of which they dedicated America’s future to God.  And why was it protected?  It was protected because there was an object outside the chapel which absorbed the full force of the calamity.  The object was the harbinger.  The sycamore.  You see, the purpose of the harbingers are not to consign a nation to judgment, but to awaken it to redemption.   For in 9/11 America was brought back to its ground of consecration.   It’s a message of return, for the voice of God is calling this nation to return, in prayer, in humility, in repentance, in hope.
And here we stand today on the 21th day of January 2013, in the capital city, on the same day, the continuation of that first Inauguration day.  And on that first inauguration, they gathered together in prayer and consecrated America’s future to God.  And here now we, who are of that future, for whom they prayed and consecrated the nation, now come together, on that same day, likewise in a gathering of prayer before the Almighty.

We stand here, centuries later, in witness to God’s hand of faithfulness and blessing on this land.  But we stand here also in witness to the fact that America has done exactly that of which, on that first day, we were warned never to do.  We bear witness that we have turned from His eternal ways of order and right.  We have turned and are rapidly turning away from His face.

And that is why it is so crucial that we have gathered here, in this place, and on this day.  For very shortly, the president will place his hand on an object… the Bible.  And I say to you, Mr. President, we have come here to pray for America, for its government, for you, its leader, and for its future.  We pray for your blessing and for your prosperity in the will of God.  For only in God’s will can we ever know true blessing.  The answer is not found in the agendas of man, but in that on upon which your hand will rest, upon the Word of God.  For everything else will pass away, but the Word of God will abide forever.  And so it must be asked, with respect… Can you lay your left hand upon His word and then with your right hand enact laws against it?  Can you invoke the name of God to assume the presidency and then use the presidency in any way to endorse that which clearly wars against the ways of the God you invoke?  Can you stand in the city name after our first president, and perform the act that he first performed on that first day, and ignore the warning he gave on that day to the nation.  Can you do all that and disregard the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.  Can you utter the words ‘so help me God’ if you should in any way take part in helping to lead a nation away from the God whose help you invoke.

We pray for your blessing in the will of God.  For if a nation that once knew the Almighty is called to return to Him, then so too must the one who leads it.

You will hold in your hand the Bible of Abraham Lincoln.  But do you not know what Lincoln said and did.   In the midst of the darkness that engulfed his land, a darkness he saw as the righteous judgment of God, Lincoln issued a call to the nation to return.  Abraham Lincoln said this:

It is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon
The overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in
humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead
to mercy and pardon; And to recognize the sublime truth, announced in
the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

And, insomuch as we know that, by His Divine Law, nations like individuals  are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole people?..
We have forgotten God.  We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us….

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness…”

So Lincoln sent forth this call for America to repent, to return to God, and to seek His mercy.  Soon after the call went forth, the tide of war would begin to turn and would ultimately lead to national healing.
The words of Abraham Lincoln ring out to us today – those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
Has this nation now grown so far from God that we can’t imagine a president doing so today?  Mr. President, if you look to Lincoln as your model then dare to follow him in his actions.

For all the politics, and all the parties, all the inaugural balls, and all the voices of political correctness, and all the sounds of applause will grow still and silent, and we will all, we will each, stand before the Almighty.  And it will not matter then how many votes we won or praises we garnered– only this – were we faithful to Him and to His word.

The voice of Lincoln now cries out to us and pleads, ‘Let us humble ourselves, confess our national sins, and pray for forgiveness.’

As it is written and promised in the word of God:
If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land.

We have come here on the 21st day of January 2013, to the capital city on the day of the Presidential Inauguration, for that purpose, to humble ourselves and pray, and to seek His face, and to turn from our evil ways.

The time is late.  The hour is critical.  A great nation proceeds in rapid spiritual descent.  And the signs of warning and judgment are manifesting in the land.  The shadow of judgment is upon us.  And for those who would be ask “How, in light of judgment, can one be saved, or safe?”   We give this answer - The word in Hebrew for safety and salvation is Yeshua.  Yeshua is the name which we know in English as ‘Jesus.’  Outside of Him there is no safety.  But inside of Him there is no fear.  It was for Him and in His name that this nation, this civilization, this city on a hill, named America, came into existence.  And it is only to Him and in His name that its problems can ultimately be answered.   He remains the answer, the light in the darkness, and the hope when all other hopes are faded and gone.  And to all who come, He will receive.  And He calls out ‘Come.

For all you who dwell in darkness, it’s time to come.  And you will not be turned away.

And for all you who know Him, for you His people, it is time to put away any shade of darkness and compromise – and take up the mantle of your calling.

It’s time to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world you were called to be, in truth, in power, and love.  It is time to light up the darkness.
It’s time to be strong.  It’s time to be bold.  It’s time to be radical.

The watchmen are crying out, and the trumpets are sounding.

And the voice of the Lord is calling to this nation, and saying “Return,”

And calling to His people and saying, “Return,”

Let the word go forth.  Let the power of God be seen in this land.  And let revival burst forth like a mighty river.

The voice of one crying in the wilderness:

Prepare the way of the Lord

Prepare the way of the Lord

Make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God

Every valley shall be exalted

And every mountain and hill shall be cast down

The crooked way shall be made straight

And the rough way shall become a plain

And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed

And all flesh will see it together

For the mouth of the Lord has spoken

Kumee Oree Ke Vah Oreich

Arise and shine for your light is come

And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you

And nations will come to your light

And kings to the brightness of your rising

In the name above all names that are named

Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Jesus the Messiah

The King of Kings

And the Lords of Lords

The Light of the World

The Hope of America

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

And the glory of His people Israel

Torah Portions and Resources

While reading and researching more about the Torah, the laws of YHWH found in the Old Testament, I find that the Torah observant community has weekly Torah readings called 'Torah Portions'.  Every week there is a section of scripture to read, delve into and study.  It is kind of what I try to do in our homeschool, reading a section of scripture each week and digging into it, using commentaries, interlinears, and prayer.  I love this method of bible reading.

The Torah Portions are followed by the majority of Jewish and Torah Observant Christian worldwide.  So if you also choose to follow them, you will be able to glean from your own study of the scripture, and share and learn from those around you who are reading the same scriptures each week.

Torah Portions - Includes the text and audio for the reading.  They also provide a pdf of the year's reading or a printed version that can be mailed to you.

Hebrew4Christians - Provides an in depth review of the reading and provides numerous points of information from other resources of Jewish history.  I found this to be absolutely facinating as I learned more about Moses and the Pharoah and their interaction from historical accounts that were not included in the canon.  Really, absolutely facinating.  

TrankBros Youtube Channel - Provides a weekly 60 second video that covers the weeks reading.  Used with the reading it can enhance your learning by adding this visual tool of the main story lines occuring.

Messianic Torah - Provides a weekly article discussing the reading and showing how each story reveals more about the Messiah.

I look forward to begin following this reading schedule.  Using it I will be able to read thru the Torah each year and hopefully find more fellowship in the word.  And since it has such a large audience, it will be much easier to find some great homeschooling resources as we follow along which I will gladly share.

Other great resources for learning Torah and how it is integral to knowing and following Yeshua.

Passion for Truth Ministries - Provides numerous Youtube videos regarding the identity of the Jew vs Gentile, Torah Observance, Pagan Rituals in the Church Today, and of course, our beautiful Messiah.

119 Ministries - Based on Psalm 119, they provide numerous videos, articles and links with the goal of Testing Everything.  It is great to see such a sincere search for truth without fear.

Unlearn - Another great ministry that tests the status quo of the 'Christian life' against the truth of the bible.

I understand that it can be angering, frightening and unnerving to find out we have been doing things wrong, especially in regards to our walk with YHWH.  Remember that we love Him because He FIRST loved us.  Be brave and give YHWH your very best efforts to bless him.  Just as John 8:32 says, "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Being imperfect, we cannot be saved by following the law.
Being perfect, He made it so we can still please and bless Him by following the law.

Deuteronomy 7:9
"Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;"

1 John 5:3
"For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome."

"I don't believe in guns."

I notice alot of people say, "I don't believe in guns."

But..... guns exist.  I am really quite certain of this.  I have been near them on occasion.   Seen them with my very own eyes.  I have even held and fired a couple. - LOL

Seriously though....
They can certainly be frightening.  Most particularly to those who have not been trained in their proper use.  They can be intimidating.  You KNOW they have the potential of causing harm if misused.

Kind of like.... a car.
Or the stove.

But... just like the car and the stove, guns serve a purpose.

A car, when used improperly by an untrained teenager or an intoxicated driver, can careen out of control and kill everyone in the vehicle and sometimes several people outside as well.
A car, when used properly can help you to transport goods and people great distances.

A stove, when used improperly by a reckless chef can burn the flesh and leave a permament scar, or start a fire that could potentially cause smoke and flames to fill your home.
A stove, when use properly can heat delicious meals to ensure that they are safe to eat.

I am pretty sure MOST of you own a stove and a car.

Guns ALSO serve a purpose.

A gun, when used improperly can intimidate, cause severe pain and disfigurement and kill innocent humans and animals, and cause property damage as well.

A gun when used properly can defend your livestock from a weasel or raccoon or even a bear.
A gun when used properly can provide great quantities of healthy wild game for your family to eat.
A gun when used properly can bring terror to the hearts of bad men who break into your home with the goal of causing severe harm to your sleeping children.
A gun when used properly can ensure that a rapist in the park never hurts another woman ever again.
A gun when used properly can educate those around you that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not to be taken lightly.

If you are afraid of guns and only see their negative aspects I encourage you to learn more about their safe handling and use.  You may not believe in guns...

But when one is pointed at you.... it won't matter what you believe.

The Mental Health Focus

Today, President Barack Hussein Obama signed 23 Executive Orders regarding gun ownership and safety.

Here is the overview of these 23 orders provided by

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.

6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.

7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.

11. Nominate an ATF director.

12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.

13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.

14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies

16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.

17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.

18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.

20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.

22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

He is also still pursuing the following legislation, provided by

Require criminal background checks for all gun sales. (a.k.a. closing the "gun show loophole.")

Reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban.

Restore the 10-round limit on ammunition magazines.

Protect police by finishing the job of getting rid of armor-piercing bullets.

Give law enforcement additional tools to prevent and prosecute gun crime.

End the freeze on gun violence research.

Make our schools safer with more school resource officers and school counselors, safer climates, and better emergency response plans.

Help ensure that young people get the mental health treatment they need.

Ensure health insurance plans cover mental health benefits.

I notice that several of these orders and legislative proposals focus on mental health.  I do understand the desire to keep the general citizenry safe from those who are crazy psychopaths.

But I have also recently been following some serious changes in the mental health community.

Mental Health News reports concerning the 2013 publication, "This Mental Health Bible is being expanded to include so many minor disorders and conditions that nearly everyone in the world will be able to be diagnosed with some mental health condition."

Bloomberg reports that even healthcare professionals are alarmed at this approach, "The draft is sparking a backlash among practitioners concerned the expanding mandate will increase the number of patients treated with drugs."

Mad in America, "a resource and a community for those interested in rethinking psychiatric care in the United States and abroad," shares this video. "Psychiatrist and author Allen J. Frances, former chair of the DSM-IV task force, outlines why he thinks the DSM-V will lead to millions of people being mislabeled with mental disorders in his lecture “Diagnostic Inflation: Does Everyone Have a Mental Illness?”"

On the surface these executive orders may seem vague and innocuous.  And many fully support keeping 'crazies' from having guns.

But when the powers that be redefine mental health so that EVERYONE can be diagnosed with a mental disorder....

Even without ANY legislation... the damage is already done.

"He will fear nothing with mortal breath."

If Christianity is to receive a rejuvenation, it must be by other means than any now being used. If the Church in the second half of this century is to recover from the injuries she suffered in the first half, there must appear a new type of leader. The proper, ruler-of-the-synagogue type will never do. Neither will the priestly type of man who carries out his duties, takes his pay and asks no questions, nor the smooth-talking pastoral type who knows how to make the Christian religion acceptable to everyone. All these have been tried and found wanting.
Another kind of religious leader must arise among us. He must be of the old prophet type, a man who has seen visions of God and has heard a voice from the Throne. When he comes (and I pray God there will be not one but many), he will stand in flat contradiction to everything our smirking, smooth civilization holds dear. He will contradict, denounce and protest in the name of God and will earn the hatred and opposition of a large segment of Christendom. Such a man is likely to be lean, rugged, blunt-spoken and a little bit angry with the world. He will love Christ and the souls of men to the point of willingness to die for the glory of the One and the salvation of the other. But he will fear nothing that breathes with mortal breath.

It Was A Dark and Stormy Night.....

Nothing like some good scary stories to cuddle around the fire with.  So gather around your fireplace, propane stove, lava lamp, whatever and turn the lights down low ....

Creepy stuff.  Glad I wasn't home alone when I heard these frightful tales.

I suppose you were expecting make believe and ghosts?  Why bother.  Truth can be scarier any day of the week.

What Choose Ye....

Paratus Familia has once again hit the nail on the head.  Be armed and ready or be defenseless in the face of inevitable evil.

"As a people, we have to decide which is worse - 1 evil man with 3 guns and 100 rounds of ammunition against a few people that have the ability to defend themselves or 3000 evil men with thousands of guns and millions of rounds of ammunition against an unarmed population?"

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn - A Man Who Refused To Go Silently

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn lived in Soviet Russia and was a witness to the terrible work camps.  He spent his life telling the world about them.  Hopefully we can learn from him, before we learn from the repetition of history.
What could these people have done differently?
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur -- what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!"
What is the cause of these troubled times??
"Over a half century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of old people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: "Men have forgotten God; that's why all this has happened." Since then I have spent well-nigh 50 years working on the history of our revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval. But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: "Men have forgotten God; that's why all this has happened."

The Need To Breed

While I really don't need much more incentive to take the plunge again, I enjoyed reading this article that 1) was hilarious and 2) pointed out a benefit of having children that I haven't considered much yet.

It will be nice, as I clean ketchup off my walls and spit up off my shirt for the thousandth time to remember that I am making an investment.  It may take a while to pay off, but if I do my darnedest it will.  And when I am wrinkled (OK more wrinkled) and grey haired (yes, yes, more gray haired) I will be able to look forward to someone loving me and holding my hand and maybe even reading me a good book when my eyes fail.

"I will concede that most people aren’t farmers anymore, and don’t need our kids to become farm-hands for us. What I don’t concede is that that was ever a very strong reason for having children anyway. You see, I have several of them at the moment, and not one of them has proven (yet) to be more of a help than a hindrance."

Conspiracy Theory of the Day

I think that someone from 'big brother' gave the guy all the money and drugs, and assisted his 'overdose'.



1.  When the words gets out, that this homeless man had all this cash and drugs, it will discourage EVERYONE from helping a man in need.  Can't have the people helping one another.  MUST create a society that only eats, drinks, breathes what the Man is giving out.   The story is juicy enough to be spread around by the media throughout most of the US also.

2.  Assuming I am correct.... government money and drugs, found in the possession of Joe Deadbody, is once again government money and drugs.  No one loses.... well.... except the homeless man.

No doubt Yakima citizens are indeed kind and generous to the homeless (just see how kind hearted their police chief is about it)....

But how many people give homeless people $20 bills???  Watch the video.... a big wad of $20s.  I give them $1s, quarters.... MAYBE a $5.

Thank you for your interest in my conspiracy theory of the day......

Book Review - EOTW Diary by Rod Ellis

Great read.

Great as in, it made me nauseous, made me tear up more than once, gave me insomnia, and I can't wait to finish it. It reminds me of Stephen King minus the supernatural BS. Unfortunately the bad guys and the horror in this story are ALL too realistic and plausible.

It is written as diary entries after a SHTF situation.  Even those who prepared for such an event had no idea how horrific and hard life would become.  Even simple things like having clean drinking water, dealing with going to the bathroom, or a minor wound becomes a life and death situation.

Really great incentive to reconsider your preps and emergency plans.

The Desires Of Little Girls

My daughter wants a little sister.

While I was pregnant with my last child she would tell me often how she hoped it would be a little girl.  She would tell me stories about her little sisterSSS and how they were so sweet and had beautiful long curls just like her.  She would tell me how much she would love them.

Of course, I had to remind her that the baby in my belly may be a girl.... or it might be a boy.  At this she would lower her head and go somewhere to hide and quietly mourn this sad news.

A friend of mine, and her baby girl, visited during this time and during the visit this conversation again took place.  I tried once again to explain how much she would love a baby brother just as much, and how sweet she would find him as well.  But once again..... she wandered away with her head down and lower lip out.

But she quickly returned!

With a bag over her shoulder, stuffed animals and clothing items sticking out.  She then planted herself firmly in front of my friend and asked if she could go home with her and live with her.  We smiled and laughed.  Surely she could visit.


She wanted to go and live with my friend because she has a baby girl.  She MUST have a baby sister.

Being pregnant and mushy, tears filled my eyes.  I asked her, do you mean.... you don't want to live here anymore because you have no baby sister?


My husband and I looked at each other and smiled.  So I took her to my lap and promised her....

If the baby in my belly is a boy.... we will try again to have a baby girl.

She smiled happily, and unpacked her bag.

I guess she is going to stick around after all.

Of course, this also means that my work isn't near done. LOL
