President Donald Trump has abruptly declared the U.S. will recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, a major shift in American policy that sent shock waves through the Arab world when he recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights last week. But in a tweet that appeared to catch many by surprise, Trump said the time had come. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted: “At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel, President Trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.” He added: “Thank you President Trump!” I feel it is important for Christian to understand that the news is important to line up next to scripture but the most important scripture and event that you want to be aware of is the 2019 Holy Festival of the Passover Week! (Nisan 14)
So, we want to help you understand the importance of the Golan Heights in the land of Israel in Jesus Yeshua’s time, in prophecy, and in the world today. First, I realized every single covenant God made was on Nisan 14; Abrahamic Covenant, Mosaic Covenant and the NEW Covenant which is Passover Week!
Second, I realized Christians can receive a great education politically, biblically, globally, geographically and prophetically just reading the news if you are spending time in the scriptures and are recognizing that ancient biblical cities and people are jumping off the social media pages!
A Christian never wants to have an "Aleppo Moment" when it comes to their Bible, History or Geo-Political world events as it relates to what is written in scripture. God expects us to familiarize ourselves with His Word. Only by fully appreciating it will we act on it. Christ said, “…It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4, quoted from Deut. 8:3). Psalms 119: 105 affirms: “Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
God instructs us to not only study current and future events among the nations, but be up to speed about past biblical events, specifically being able to understand and connect the prophecies recorded in the Bible. It takes dedicated study of the people and places, analysis of current events and of course, fellowship with others to discuss and compare our understandings or lack of. We learn about the future by observing past events. One thing we all must recognize is that whoever controls Syria also controls the new Islamic Caliphate. We should also realize that Syria no longer exists. The Syrian civil war that started in 2011 destroyed true Syria and now it is nothing but a battle ground hosting Turkey, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, US backed Kurds and who knows who else!
The Holy Festival of Passover starts at sundown on April 19 and ends at sundown on Shabbat April 27, 2019 (aka the 14th of Nisan!)
What was the 14th of Nisan?
In Exodus 12:6 we read that on the 14th of Nisan the children of Israel were to SLAY the Passover lambs.
"And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation shall KILL it in the evening" ( "between the two evenings"). The Passover lambs were to be killed in the evening of Nisan 14. That means toward the END of Nisan 14, or late afternoon.
The "evening" of a day is not its beginning, but its ending, before sunset (see Exodus 12:18, Leviticus 23:32). In these verses, notice that the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins at the "evening" of the 14th of Nisan (leading into the high holy day of the 15th); likewise, the Day of Atonement, which is the tenth day of Tishri, began "in the ninth day of the month AT EVEN" (Lev. 23:32). The 14th of Nisan is the day when the Jews put leavening out of their homes, as YEHOVAH God commanded, so they could celebrate the seven days of unleavened bread.
YEHOVAH commanded, "In the first month, on the 14th day of the month AT EVEN (at evening, the ending portion of the day -- compare Leviticus 23:32), ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month AT EVEN" (Exodus 12:18-20). No leaven was to be seen with them for the seven days of the feast (Exo. 13:6-7). Thus, the leavening had to be put out on the 14th day of the month, as the 15th was the first day of the festival. (Leviticus 23:6-7).
Passover Bible Study
History Bible Study
The Islamic Movement split into 2 camps in the 7th century; Sunni and Shiites Sunni felt he should be elected. The Shiites believed that he must be a member of the prophet’s family. The quarrel came to a head at the Battle of Karbala (Iraq). The fight because they are trying to figure out which group inherits the rights to lead on from Muhammad the Prophet. They should be looked at as different religions in the same faith expect their faith is a government. Baptist vs. a Methodist. There are deep animosities within Islam, as there is historically, with Christianity.
Yeshua not only spent time on the Golan side of the lake out of compassion for the people. He was also fulfilling an 800-year old prophecy. “News about Him [Yeshua] spread all over Syria, and people brought to Him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them. Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed Him.” (Matthew 4:24–25)
The Golan Heights is a site of political and territorial conflict that wasn’t always controlled by Israel. Until 1967, it was part of Syria, but Israel’s decisive victory included the capture and control of this area in the Six-Day War. The War was an attack and unlawful siege and blockade against Israel by her Arab neighbors Egypt, Jordan and Syria to destroy the state of Israel.
Israel’s victory over this aggression and within its right of self-defense, captured five territories from these three countries: the Gaza Strip and Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, East Jerusalem and the West Bank from Jordan, and the Golan Heights from Syria. It is critical to understand that in the next 52 years, Israel ‘voluntarily’ withdrew from two areas — the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula, both located in the south — with the goal of making peace, however, Israel never received peace. Israelis began moving to the Golan almost immediately after the war, and Israel fully annexed the Golan in 1981, treating it like any other part of the country. It offered the Syrian residents’ citizenship, but most of them declined.
The term “Golan Heights” should ring loud in the ears of Bible students. Politically, we need to understand this Presidential “tweet” was a very critical announcement given the upcoming Israeli elections to be held April 9th, in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (who faced indictment charges during the campaign), is fighting for his political career.
We also understand The Trump ‘Peace Plan’ Deal is scheduled immediately after the elections. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been noticeably silent regarding this tweet and what about Russia, who is Syria’s prime backer?
Even if you know nothing about Israel or the Golan Heights you probably do remember a little about hearing the biblical story of Jesus healing the man possessed by demons. Long story short, Jesus calmed a terrible storm on the Sea of Galilee and when he got back on shore, he finds two men possessed by demons who live in tombs. He removes the demons from the men and casts the demons into a large herd of pigs, who then run off a steep cliff drowning themselves in the Sea of Galilee beneath the Golan Heights at Kursi, (Luke 8:26-39, Mark 5:1-20, & Matthew 8:28-34). Kursi was an important place of Christian pilgrimage from the 5th century. The lakeside towns nearby of Capernaum, Bethsaida and Chorazin were all condemned by Jesus for their lack of faith and fell into decline.
The Golan Heights are directly inter-related in the destruction of Damascus, Syria as discussed in (Jer. 49:23-27), and (Isaiah 17) coupled with a Turkish led invasion into northern Israel (Ezekiel 38: 2-5). No one would ever argue that even if Israel has full control of the Golan Heights, she will still continue to face major threats from the other side of the border, including Hezbollah and Iran-backed militias.
According to Harvard Law Professor, Alan Dershowitz "No reasonable person would ask the Israelis to give the Golan Heights to the Syrian mass murderer Assad. It would be suicidal to hand the high ground overlooking Israeli towns and villages to a madman who would use it to target Israelis civilians with chemical barrel bombs, as Assad has done to his own citizens. No country has ever returned a battleship captured in a defensive war to an enemy sworn to its destruction. In addition, the Golan Heights is a big battleship that would be used to attack Israel. I compared the Golan Heights to a captured battleship," You don’t give back a battleship you’ve captured in a defensive war. The area is high ground that the Syrians before the war used to shoot down onto the Israeli farmers laboring in the valley: it was a shooting gallery.
According to the Prophet Jeremiah the destruction of Damascus begins at Hamah and Arpad (modern day Tell Rifaat) which are Syrian cities just a stone toss away from Israel as the (Missile flies). Isaiah 17:1 and Jeremiah 49:24-27 predict the city of Damascus will be destroyed. Many scholars teach that if Turkey enters Syria at Hamah or Tell Rifaat, they might just be on their way to invade the city of Damascus and eventually turn into Israel. Remember, the Bible records that back when the Assyrian army invaded Damascus and conquered Syria, they next invaded the northern kingdom of Israel and at that point Israel was carried away into Iraq.
There is the possibility that Turkish President Erdogan may invade Syria and remove Syria’s President from power. His did say his goal is to establish a Muslim Brotherhood Caliphate leadership in Syria and form a nation consisting of Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey. We know from our Bible that the closer Turkish forces get to Israel the closer Jesus will get to Israel! Turkey is the 2nd largest standing force in NATO next to the USA. Turkey’s population makes it the second strongest power in the EU in terms of voting strength if it were allowed entrance.
Turkey is a nation of eastern people and ancient empires with ruthless fighting principles and are all Muslim. Christians have been largely killed off or driven out of this land during the 20th century. Mosul is the headquarters of ISIS built around the ruins of ancient Nineveh, Iraq. Nineveh was the capital of the Assyrian Empire. The Assyrians were infamous for committing the same sorts of atrocities that ISIS is known for today. Nahum speaks a prophecy about a final uprising and the flooding of Mosul yet to come. Read Nahum 1:3-8 and hear the LORD’S anger towards Mosul, Iraq (ISIS) and notices Bashan, Carmel and Lebanon are mentioned and are located in the Golan Heights.
When the Civil War in Syria erupted in 2011, it fragmented and destroyed much of the country, including some of Damascus, the capital of Syria one of the most ancient cities in the world. President Trump, Vice President Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton were all very courageous in the decision to sign a resolution to fully acknowledge Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights. This land along the mountains of Judea and Samaria is critical to Israel's survival.

Until next week’s Biblical "news" cycles! Stay successful in your bible!
The Feast of Unleavened Bread is a feast that is generally mistaken for Passover. Passover is a 24-hour period and The Feast of Unleavened Bread lasts for seven days. Numbers 28:16-17 in (during) the 14th day of the first month shall be the LORD's Passover. On the fifteenth day of this month shall be a feast, unleavened bread shall be eaten for seven days.
So, Passover and The Feast of Unleavened Bread is a Celebration for eight days that you may honor! Teaching the Bible to your family is so much fun when you can do it together around the table! The Hebrew word TORAH means utterance or teaching, instruction or Revelation from Elohim. When the word Torah was translated into English the word "Law" was used in translating. The word law clearly does not mean "revelation" in English!
Much of the symbolism of Jesus' last Passover week is lost to us because we are unaware of the customs of the time.The day Jesus was crucified was the day of the Passover celebration and the day that the Passover lamb was to be sacrificed. For the previous 1,200 years, the priest would blow the shophar (ram's horn) at 3:00 p.m. - the moment the lamb was sacrificed, and all the people would pause to contemplate the sacrifice for sins on behalf of the people of Israel.
The festival of the Passover has been celebrated by Jews for thousands of years. It is the retelling of the great story of how God redeemed the Jewish nation from enslavement in Egypt.The original celebration centered around the Passover lamb, which was sacrificed and its blood put over the doorposts as a sign of faith, so that the Lord passed over the houses of the Jews during the last plague poured out on the Egyptians - the killing of every firstborn.
At 3:00, when Jesus was being crucified (Mark 15:34-37) (Luke 23:44-46), He said, "It is finished" (John 19:30) - at the exact moment that the Passover lamb was sacrificed and the shophar was blown from the Temple. The sacrifice of the lamb of God was fulfilled at the hour that the symbolic animal sacrifice usually took place. At the same time, the veil of the Temple (a three-inch thick, several story high cloth that demarked the Holy of Holies) tore from top to bottom (Hebrews 9:3) (Matthew 27:51) - representing a removal of the separation between God and man.
The entire story can be read in the book of Exodus, (see chapter 12). The Passover lamb was still sacrificed in the first century, as indicated in the New Testament (Luke 22:7)
Matthew 27:46, 50) See also Mark 15:34-37,Luke 23:44-46
God told us in Deuteronomy 16:16, His Big 3 Days and revealed His clock that runs the world! He told us to keep 3 Eternal Holy Days which are The Feast of Unleavened Bread, The Feast of Weeks, and The Feast of Booths. The 3 Feasts are "Appointed Celebrations" and it is very healthy for the family to learn about them and definitely Celebrate them!
In my next blog I’ll write about Counting the Omer up to the Feast of Booths (Pentecost or Shavuot) Enjoy this great season of the LORD!
You might be able to look away because you don't think this has anything to do with you as an American citizen way over here across the pond. Well the WALL has everything to do with American voters. Did you know that Drug Trades are coming from Iranian Hezbollah to the tune of 1 billion in a drug program says our DEA!!! You might just want to google project Casandra and what is happening in our Southern Hemisphere.
The day of Yeshua is upon us and Americans are coming face to face with some new realities! Yesterday, I sat down with my son & husband after the Sabbath was over to talk about the current world events happening & the geopolitical game Washington elites are playing with American lives. I wanted to hear my sons "thoughts" on the latest news because it helps me understand where the "culture" is today especially on our universities.
Our Creator has given us commandments to governor ourselves or we will be governed by the sword. It is always interesting to study with other great ministry leaders, learn together at conferences and put world events around the scriptures. The eclipse that "divided America" started a whirlwind month of hurricanes, kneeling during the national anthem, and false prophecy." stated Michael Rood of the ROOD AWAKENING MINISTRIES.
Back in 2008 or so I began to step-up my families educational influence in our community as well as our activism & political advocacy volunteer work. It is well reported (via statistics) that anyone raised in our government public school systems knows little to nothing of World History or the culture of the Middle East, or for that matter the scriptures written by the prophets of Israel, or worse the potential nuclear war prophesied by the prophets.
Most of the time I take peace in the scriptures spoken by the prophets & recorded for us as it relates to how future world events will unfold but my mind is currently wrestling with "shock waves" as I watch politics & world events play out. You just can't make this stuff up!!!
We have read about the great signs in the heavens since the beginning of civilization and more excitingly we have witnessed right up to the present moment blue moons, blood moons, lunar & solar eclipses etc., with NASA's advanced technology bringing it to us LIVE! What is even more exciting is in the last few years we have the technology to roll the clock back and look at exactly what was happening during Yeshua's life as discussed in The Chronological Gospels Course written by Michael Rood's decades of research. It is certain that The Creator runs the universe according to his plan not ours!
It is chilling to realize the Obama administration switched sides in Libya which led to the fall of Libya's government, the death of Gaddhafi in 2011, as well as the death of Ambassador Stevens, the closure of the UK and International Red Cross and the rise of The Islamist Militia complete with all their various sects, names, name changes and of course the infamous lost or classified top secret emails that would give us all the answers.
Since government leaders seem to not learn from history, we are now witnessing the exact same situation again in Syria, however, few Americans are aware of what is going on there and even fewer care. Iran, Russia, Turkey, Israel, USA, Sudan, Libya, North Korea, Egypt, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Yemen etc., (is your head spinning yet!) Somewhere in the spin the student of the bible knows the Ezekiel War is coming whether anyone believes or not what the prophets foretold. Remember, Yeshua told us to interpret world events through the lens of the prophets! The least we must do is stop calling this War in Syria a "Civil War." It may have started over political uprisings but now when we have multiple countries fighting and Russia and America on opposite "sides" I'd say that sounds like the foundation of a World War. What is even more concerning is America keeps telling us we are "not" in this battle but we haven't we attacked and ( killed) strategic targets and people just this week?
Only in a fiction novel would a US Embassy security personal (in Libya of all places) not be on guard or worse lock up weapons in another building by order of the Secretary of State! Or have no idea today whose responsibility it was that no get-away car was parked at the safe room window or worse deny a US Ambassador's repeated request for more security. Only in a sci-fi movie would we learn about deadly powerful clandestine weapons which the Ambassador was supposedly an expert according to Admiral Lyons video presentation below.
Are we really moving these type weapons from Libya into Syria or Egypt, Gaza, Niger, or Somalia? Is US policy backing IS? Is US policy on opposite sides of sitting governments in Libya and Syria? Are we opposing Russia? Is there a US led coalition of Arabs and Turks? What will the world do with the fact that 250,000 lives have been holocaust-ed in Syria? What will the world do with half the population of Syria that is lost to refugee status fleeing for their lives? Can you even get your head around the magnitude of this? Just this week alone the USA bombed and killed over 100 Syrians and yesterday Israel, in response to a Drone sent into their territory, took out many strategic targets in and around the city of Damascus, Syria. Read the details of the event here from the JNS.
I don't know what game American politics is playing but in medicine if you are on meds, you have symptoms and you have disease. We don't HIDE the information because people's lives depend on knowing the truth. We call it what it is. If we as a nation are supplying weapons then we are in this war. If we topple a government and leave lawlessness WHO is responsible for the clean up and the funding of all the infrastructure and survivors? If ISIS rebels with our help cause Assad to fall and ISIS, and al-Qaeda set up camp in Damascus who will protect every single Syrian Christian from massacre, beheadings & ethnic cleansing. We are still trying to stop this barbaric crime in Iraq as VP Pence has promised. Who will stop a massacre of Shiites with millions of more refugees going into Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Europe and the United States?
So what are American citizens to do as we watch this all unfold? I recommend that watch-fathers & watch-mothers who sit on the "spiritual" wall of Israel continue to pray. Attend Middle East Expert Seminars & Briefings when available in your community, and watch the 2018 SC Tea Party ( youtube) videos of the Generals who gave expert analysis of world events.
As you stand on the side-lines in American communities as voting citizens, ask the questions and seek the answers from elected officials. Connect with ministries reporting from Israel to get the truth, such as Behold Israel, and if you do not know your Bible join study groups and make it a goal to get up to speed. If you do not have a bible please contact our ministry.
If you happen to live in SC Horry County, feel free to connect with our ministry to learn and be apart of an exciting new Christian fellowship of friends & faith building teaching! As part of our partnerships with national and international ministries we felt led to start an AVIV Fellowship group locally here in Horry County.
Our particular AVIV Fellowhip group is an educational and resource network initiative and an extension of Rood Awakening International Ministry as well as the thousands of Aviv groups all over the world! We are a network of Christians from every church, congregation or home group. We keep the biblical Sabbath and The biblical Feast of the LORD, we believe Yeshus (Jesus) is the Messiah and we observe the Hebrew Biblical Aviv calendar! Come join us every Friday night as we enter into the LORD's 24 hours of rest and we begin the celebration of the family Shabbat Nigh Fellowship!
Be Blessed my friends! In the love of Yeshua pay attention, love your family & be ready for the return of our Messiah one day! Keep the Faith!
Let me share with you something you can do RIGHT NOW if you live in/or within driving distance to Horry County, SC. Bring your church college ministry leaders and come support one of our own "local" CCU students!
My daughter, Marena Willeford is the CCU student President for Christians United For Israel on Campus Club. The CCU Cufi on Campus Club will be hosting SC Representative Alan D. Clemmons this semester.
If you are a Pastor and your leadership has the goal of connecting with our University students, here is your opportunity! Students connect with community when "community" invest their time to come out and support campus events.
Across America we witness many apathetic populations of people and sadly, this group now includes the "church". Today, we face the worst crises the world has ever had to confront and it is never mentioned in media outlets, newspapers or discussed in most churches. Why? Well, we do not know what has caused the apathy but surely Pastors should be engaged in college ministries as these young American adults now inherit the mistakes of those who kept watch before them.
WHO: SC Representative Alan D. Clemmons
WHERE: Coastal Carolina University, Brittain Hall Room 114
WHEN:November 1, 2917
TIME: 6:30 p.m.
TOPIC: Representative Clemmons, an Alumni of Coastal and will be discussing his recent trip to the Middle East as well as his current legislation on the floor of the SC House and Senate. Alan Clemmons is the leading voice in SC, Nationally and Globally. Here are just some of the highlights;
So why get involved and support our campus students? Why is it critical to support Israel?
CCU CUFI ON CAMPUS Trips To Israel, Texas & DC
I hope to see you at Coastal for the Cufi on Campus Student Event!
Dr. Carly Willeford
The American Studies Association (ASA) endorsed a boycott of Israeli Universities, the largest group of U.S. scholars to do so.......were the headlines in 2013.
Click Here to read this article.
The ASA then became the target of widespread criticism and ostracism. Israeli officials denounced the campaign as an attempt to delegitimize the Jewish state.
As I read this article several years ago it first made me mad, and secondly it was an embarrassment to academia, scholarship, research, unity, and inter-faith community, all goals my family has dedicated our lives too.
This type of illogical behavior was one of the reasons I encouraged and helped my daughter, Brea Willeford start the Cufi on Campus chapter on the campus of Coastal Carolina University where all my kids attend or attended! Of all the clubs we have on campus I think raising up the TRUTH concerning Israel as it relates to the world economics, technology, business and innovations in science and health is just one of many reasons to connect students to the critical facts.
Horry County, SC is blessed to have Coastal Carolina University and outstanding faculty that call our city home! Unity is the norm and we do not see discourse on our campus focused on Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions of Israel (BDS). However, we must speak as one voice academically across this great nation.
Carolyn A Martin, President of Amherst College eloquently stated in a statement posted on the university website; “Such boycotts threaten academic speech and exchange, which it is our solemn duty as academic institutions to protect,” Nearly all of the presidents’ statements have similarly denounced the boycott as impeding the flow of ideas. Several have cited specific collaborations or exchanges with Israeli universities as evidence of their institutional commitment to maintaining strong relations with Israel.”
So, if you, your university, denomination, or organization has decided to boycott all products and services from Israel. Here is a list of activities that you now need to perform in order to comply with this boycott.
Technology and Food
You MUST use your voice and fighting BDS whenever, and wherever it exist!
It is the right time to start a Judeo-Christian Alliance Congregation; Worship & Teaching Conference Center right here in Horry County!
Check out the more than 5,000 Evangelical Christians from nearly 100 nations that celebrated in Israel during the recent week-long Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) holiday. Click Here for the full article!
Many of the Tabernacles marchers in Jerusalem blew shofars (rams’ horns).
Following in the footsteps of Jesus, whose Sukkot holiday visit to the capital city is described in the Gospel of John, the visitors marked 50 years of Jerusalem’s reunification.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said “I warmly welcome our thousands of Christian friends who have arrived to Israel from 100 countries at the initiative of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem. Your steadfast support warms our hearts,”
Join us next year for Israel's 70th anniversary and The Feast of Tabernacles! I must say I sure would love to visit the Ein Gedi Spa and the Dead Sea in Israel and celebrate under the stars and palms trees!
Pre-registration has opened for next year’s event, September 23-28, 2018, which will mark the state of Israel’s 70th anniversary.
The first time I heard the expression "politics is downstream culture" was from Mark Rodgers.
I had the opportunity to meet the Wedgwood Circle Founder, Mark Rodgers. Mark Rodgers is the President and Founder of Wedgwood Circle, as well as the Principal of The Clapham Group, a creative consulting firm that works with non-profits, corporations and foundations. He is a published writer and a speaker on the topics of faith and public life, culture and caring for the least of these. His work over the years includes outreach to “culture creators,” and he has worked closely with artists from diverse fields including computer gaming, graphic novels, film and music. The Wedgwood Circle sums it up with this; "Do good while doing well. Promote the creation of good, true beautiful art in mainstream culture"
I think the best culture creators are on the campus of universities across America. We must work to reignite our universities once again as the greatest institutions in America! Education changes everything, always has, always will. Newer follow uneducated people. One of my favorite politics and faith Thinkers in America is Pastor Hagee of John Hagee Ministries.
As I started out to build my marriage and family, I knew I needed practical education on how to have a great marriage and raise a generation of great kids who love the LORD. I listened to Pastor Hagee every chance I had. Pastor Hagee was filling my atmosphere and thoughts, with the Word of God as my toddlers ran around and played. If I was driving those cassette tapes were playing! I am completely convinced my family is so successful today because of all that WORD that got "down-loaded" into our brains!
My kids, husband and patients tell me I am more of a "preacher" more than a healthcare provider. I know its because I've memorized the teachings of some of the greatest bible-based thinkers over decades of years. I played those tapes so many times I had every word memorized and when trouble came, I'd recite some of the best preachings ever recorded.
My kids and patients will testify they cannot get from the pantry to the frig, or out of my medical exam room without some kind of biblical testimony of how I have seen Jesus work miracles in every area of life!
Here is how I mentored my own kids as I home-educated them K-12. I taught them to find solid role models they admired. People "already successful" in the areas they desired to become successful in and then study exactly what they did or didn't do and learn from them. Here are some very basic question all success driven students should be sure they can answer;
I teach mothers to "see" themselves as the CEO of the home. The family is the mother's ministry, business, company and eternal legacy. Work at it every day with everything you have to make sure your home is healthy, prosperous, well ran, on budget, achieving goals and above all biblically literate so everyone will finish their race in this life strong!
It is beyond exciting and a supernatural blessing for me as a mother to know that after 28 years of listening to Pastor Hagee, my kids got to meet him and shake his hand in Texas. They had opportunities to worship and tour his church, as well as serve in Christians United for Israel (CUFI) with CUFI On Campus, travel to DC for national advocacy training and most importantly travel to ISRAEL with Cufi.
A goal I am working on now locally in SC, is developing a proposal that seeks to establish universities "ADOPTING" Israel university departments as sister-universities. The best way to build relationships is to share information and ideas.
I seek to use my own neuro-research project that I started at Coastal Carolina University to collaborative on clinical research with a biology department in Israel.
My daughters were able to participate and present our Neuro research orally and poster presentations representing Coastal Carolina University at two SC State Conferences! Outstanding Huntington's Disease research under faculty guidance was a critical aspect of their medical school application. Today, Israel is leading the research in the field of neuro-science and a collaboration of science student projects would be very valuable for students and leaders in healthcare.
Giving my own kids the opportunity to network academically in science, technology, and healthcare in Israel is a model for building bridges of HOPE that foster creativity as well as Incubator Startups.
Networking with the university faculty who are the "constants" on every campus is the vehicle to accomplish this type of collaboration and is a strategy that re-educates a positive narrative around campus in any discipline.
I believe this type of a philanthropy model is one that funds efforts to re-educate those who negatively strive and actually work to plant seeds of boycott, divestment & sanctions (BDS) on campus against Israel and throughout our nation's academic settings. We will work to change the narrative to one of a scholarship & innovation between faculty, students and Israel.
The opportunity to give young students the ability to visit Israel sister-university research labs & facilities filled with positive mentors who know how to over-come adversity is a very positive vehicle to accomplish our family scholarship goals for students.
Learning Torah & the Jewish Roots of Christianity has made the most profound change in my life! When you connect with the Jewish Roots you realize it is not just a matter of accurate understanding but it is a matter of prophetic destiny. Israel IS God's plan for the nations of the world. Israel is God's answer to a fallen world. Israel is raised up by God as a testimony to the world, a lighthouse pointing the way to the one true God.
When I became "adopted" as a Jewish mother my life took a 90 degree turn one day and I stepped up to begin my home ministry learning everything I could about the Jewish culture and teach my twins!
Needless to say, my faith, spirituality, knowledge-base and understanding of the Hebrew roots completed my understanding of my faith and relationship with Messiah by 100 fold!
The day I saw Messiah in The Biblical Feasts my life was changed forever! It was like something clicked in a way that it never clicked before. Every day since then has been supernaturally transforming and I wish this for every Christian and pray it in for the church one day!
These days the more I study the happier and excited I get! The hundreds of Christian denominations never made sense to me until I learned Torah and read the Bible through the eyes of our Savior, a very Jewish Rabbi "Jesus" and understood his culture, family and disciples all from a Middle East perspective.
Christianity worships a Jewish Savior, whose Jewish disciples founded a Jewish religion in Israel. They spoke the Jewish language (Hebrew), they read the Jewish scriptures, they attended Jewish synagogues, they taught using the teaching techniques of the Jewish religious teachers of their day (the rabbis). These are the same people who authored our Christian scriptures, both the Old and the New Testaments. Jesus was a Jew of the line of David (Matt. 1:6)! Paul was a student of the famous Rabbi Gamaliel (Acts 22:3)! I encourage to begin your study of the Hebrew roots of Christianity and begin to experience a whole new exciting life in the power of Messiah!
We are now celebrating the Fall Feast and we have just completed Rosh Hashana and The Day of Atonement. After the Day of Atonement, the next festival is the Feast of Tabernacles, which began TONIGHT and will last for seven days. Immediately following this festival is the final, one-day festival we call the eight day! So who doesn't LOVE a week long party!
The Feast of Tabernacles, is also known as the Feast of
Ingathering or Feast of Booths or Sukkot. It is the seventh and last feast that the Lord commanded Israel to observe. It is also one of the three feasts that Jews were to observe each year by going to “appear before the Lord your God in the place which He shall choose” (Deuteronomy 16:16).
We can begin to understand how important this Feast is to the LORD because of how many places it is mentioned in the Bible. It was at this time that King Solomon's Temple was dedicated to the Lord (1 Kings 8:2).
Sukkot or The Feast of Tabernacles is a clear picture of the 1,000-year rule of Jesus Christ on this earth, known as the Millennium (Revelation 20:4-6). This follows after the binding of Satan pictured by the Holy Day of Atonement (Revelation 20:1-3).
The strong possibility that Jesus was born at the time of the Feast of Tabernacles is also seen in the words John wrote (John 1:14). He came to "tabernacle among us!" (For those who are counting back 9 months that would make the immaculate conception at Hanukkah, "The Light of The World!")
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” The word John chose to speak of Jesus “dwelling” among us is the word tabernacle, which simply means to “dwell in a tent.”
Paul’s words make so much more sense now with an understanding of the Jewish roots:
"Remember that you were at that time without Christ, being alienated from the citizenship of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise [made with Israel], having no hope and in the world without God. But now, in Christ Jesus, you [non-Jews] who once were far away were made near by the blood of Christ…. So, therefore, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but you are fellow-citizens [of Israel] with the holy ones and members of the household of God" (Ephesians 2:12, 13, 19).
When we understand that Messiah Jesus rules a "greater Israel" over many kinds of sheep, not all of whom live as Jews, but who are from every tribe, language, and nation (John 10:16) we begin to understand the Kingdom of Messiah!
So, start where you are at and begin to learn about Sukkot right now and teach your kids! Look it up and prove yourself worthy by careful study and just maybe you might want to make a Sukkah with the kids and get out under the stars of heaven for dinner and simply connect with God "around the table!"
Here is the resource we used in our home following the day after "The Day of Atonement 2017!"
The Creator of the Universe just wished you Happy New Year! The date on HIS lunar Hebrew calendar is 5778 and the biblical "New Year" started on 1 & 2 Tishrei of the seventh month of the Jewish calendar, or September 20-21, 2017 on the Gregorian solar international civil calendar adopted in 1582.
The Biblical New Year is called Rosh Hashanah, or also called The Feast of Trumpets in the Bible found in Leviticus 23:23-25 and Numbers 29:1-6.. It is also called the Day of Remembrance in Lev. 23:24. It literally means the head of the year! The Feast of Trumpets begins with Rosh Hashanah. The celebrations continue for ten days of repentance, culminating on Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. It is believed Rosh Hashanah is the anniversary for the Creation of the 1st Man & Woman in the Garden of Eden, found in the book of Genesis!
So how can a Christian make sense of this biblical teaching?
The cross is where God absorbs sin and recycles it into forgiveness. The great plan of the cross was not an attempt to change God’s mind about us, but an attempt to change our minds about God. God is not a Caiaphas seeking a sacrifice. God is not a Pilate requiring an execution. God is a Jesus, absorbing sin, forgiving sinners. That makes the gospel all about forgiveness, rather than about payment and punishment. It makes the gospel all about love, rather than all about wrath.
The next big day on God's calendar is The Feast of Sukkot also called the Feast of Tabernacles, or Feast of Booths. Sukkot begins five days after Yom Kippur, from the 15-21 day of the Hebrew month of Tishri or October 5 -11, 2017. The observance of the Feast of Tabernacles is recorded in Exodus 23:16, 34:22; Leviticus 23:34-43; Numbers 29:12-40; Deuteronomy 16:13-15; Ezra 3:4; and Nehemiah 8:13-18.
The Feast of Sukkot is the seventh and last feast that the Lord commanded Israel to observe and one of the three feasts that Jews were to observe each year by going to “appear before the Lord your God in the place which He shall choose” (Deuteronomy 16:16)
The Bible reveals dual significance in the Feast of Tabernacles. Agriculturally, Sukkot is Israel's "thanksgiving," a joyous harvest festival to celebrate the gathering of grain and wine. As a historical feast, its main characteristic is the requirement to dwell in temporary shelters or booths in remembrance of God's protection, provision, and care during their 40 years in the wilderness.
In the New Testament, Jesus attended the Feast of Tabernacles and spoke these amazing words on the last and greatest day of the Feast: "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." (John 7:37-38 NIV) The next morning, while the torches were still burning Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12 NIV)
We need to do a lot more than drain the swamp in Washington! It is not just politically elected people that are not getting anything done. We have a rather large LAKE of "paid committees" full of experts from every University as well as researchers flown in from every corner of the world sitting around a table reading summaries of research telling us phthalates are deadly to the developing fetus, infant, toddler, child, teen and adult.
Phthalates are hormone disrupters that have been painfully deliberated since 2011, and in 2014 a 600 page REPORT was presented to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Let me sum this up, the researchers saw all 5 toxic metabolites in maternal blood, & urine, and infant blood, and cord blood.
The CHAP report states that “phthalates cause a wide range of toxicities in experimental animals but the one considered of greatest concern for purposes of this report is a syndrome indicative of androgen insufficiency in fetal life, what is referred to in rats as the phthalate syndrome, caused by exposure of pregnant dams to certain phthalates”. It is unclear how recommendations can be made with respect to children’s toys and child care articles when the toxicity endpoint is for non-users of those products (i.e., pregnant women, fetuses, and neonates.
Where are phthalates and parabens found?
Phthalates, also called "plasticizers", are found in numerous everyday products such as:
Just take a quick scan of this video of scholars sitting around a Washington meeting with all their titles discussing phthalate exposure and the lifelong effects comprehensively, and nothing happened! As a health care provider I could just scream!
How about Congress demand that the folks get paid by our tax dollars such as the FDA actually READ the Expert REPORTS. We cannot stop cancer or even treat cancer to win this battle if hormones are messed up in the 9 months of pregnancy or during the child's early years.
Kraft is America’s biggest cheese brand by far. But most people don’t know that some of Kraft's cheese product contain toxic chemicals called phthalates. In fact, phthalates were found in almost all of the cheese product items the Safe Chemicals Healthy Families tested. Just check out this New York Times article.
The Food and Drug Administration did NOT ban their presence in foods, even though the 2014 report to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) urged federal agencies to assess risks “with a view to supporting risk management steps.” The report concluded that food, drugs and beverages, and not toys, were the primary source of exposure to phthalates.
"These studies provide the first human data linking prenatal phthalate exposure (specifically DEP, DBP and DEHP) with antiandrogenic effects in male offspring. These results have important relevance to the hypothesized testicular dysgenesis syndrome (TDS) in humans. Skakkebaek et al. (2001) hypothesized that poor semen quality, testis cancer, cryptorchidism, and hypospadias were symptoms of an underlying entity referred to as TDS, which had its origins during fetal life."
"They further hypothesized that environmental chemicals, specifically endocrine disruptors, played an important role in the etiology of TDS through disruption of embryonal programming and gonadal development during fetal life. Currently, in humans, the 29 evidence on the potential effects of phthalates during fetal development is limited to shortened AGD. Based on the human data on gestational exposure and reduced AGD, exposure to DEP, DBP and DEHP metabolites should be reduced. Further studies are needed to determine whether fetal exposure to phthalates is associated with other endpoints (i.e., reproductive tract malformations and altered semen quality)."
Why assess phthalate and paraben levels?
Exposure to phthalates and parabens is more common than you may realize. Phthalates and parabens are often classified as xenoestrogens, foreign compounds in the body functioning as endocrine disruptors by binding specifically to estrogen receptors.
Endocrine disruptors are associated with diseases such as:

Politics is a topic in our home because faith & advocacy is how my kids were raised. If you're involved in making your community, campus or state better you are by definition involved in faith & politics!
My kids and I were discussing how a National ministry leader once said to us, that the campus ministry our kids lead on their college campus called Cufi on Campus is does not get political. We just shook our head and assumed he was having brain neuron issues! Cufi speaks with one voice on Capitol Hill advocating for Israel.
Anyway, back to our politics conversation politics, Russia and our millennial generation! Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites coupled with talking heads reporting the "news" seem to not be able to stop talking about Russia. Today the front porch rocking chair is now a window to the global stage.
The recent news from Beijing, is that Prime Minister Netanyahu met with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and spoke at the Israel-China Business and Innovation Summit! I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at this Summit! The tour centered on boosting economic ties between Israel and China, and their hi-tech sector. I am always amazed when I see BDS movements (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) against Israel given the fact that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and the foremost center of global innovation, and a technological global power! If you do not know what BDS is click here.
What in the global world is going on with Russia and the U.S. after more than two decades of obscurity? As President Trump sorts it all out here is what we do know from the lips of Russian President Vladimir Putin when he declared;
"Our partners, regardless of the situations in their countries or their foreign policies, should always keep in mind that Russia is not to be messed with. I want to remind you that Russia is one of the largest nuclear powers. This is reality, not just words; moreover, we are strengthening our nuclear deterrence forces."
What you know or don't know or "think" about Russia, The Cold War and the long nuclear standoff will certainly depend on how old you currently are.
What young Americans must understand, as their grandparents will testify, is the fact that peace should never be taken for granted and it requires relentless effort, and wisdom to sustain it, especially between world superpowers both good or bad.
To further your study here is a great read and critical analysis to understand the deep strategic differences between the United States and Russia, and the origins of those differences that have never been properly understood by either side click here!
Here is a list of some brilliant literature books about the cold war. Click Here and bring up Russia just for fun at your next social gathering and see what people know or don't know! I promise you education ROCKS!
We cannot argue the statistics of crime. Chicago reported a 48% increase over last year. San Jose's homicides more than doubles during the same period and Los Angeles County reported 110 homicides so far this year compared to 85 homicides in 2015. Click Here
We need to talk about the reason for the growing crime, especially in our younger generation. Research reports it is linked to anxiety over drugs, permissive child-rearing, no faith or biblical belief systems, declining academic standards, vulnerable populations, or the inability to compete with global markets for instance the Japanese and how that relates to America.
So how did the crime problem get out of control? Is the answer "real time" crime data? Uniform Crime Report (UCR) data published by the FBI lags by nearly a year Click here.
Do we need more news? More counselors? More youth groups? More ADD/ADHD medications? More anxiety or anti-depressant medications? Stricter gun control? More Laws? Is the crisis because the hand of the government went into the business of creating culture and therefore contributed to the crisis?
Medically speaking, I am concerned about the 12.5 million or 4.7% of the American population who misuse narcotic prescription pain reliever drugs which includes non-medically supervised use. In the last year we have reports validating 828,000 people used heroin. Now we not only have out of control crime but its coupled with an opioid epidemic.
We must return to the "natural" "traditional" family in which there is a mother and father raising the children they have conceived. The family MUST be founded on love, loyalty and above all commitment. People have forgotten how to make "commitment" an unconditional belief of who they are down right down to the core of their fabric.
Soldiers are committed to the end of the battle. Doctors and Nurses will never give up or leave a patient until the end. Why is everybody giving up on marriage and the future of our society? Why the rejection? When did "commitment" get a DNA fatal mutation? Rejection in ANY form is a malignant cancer that has no cure and the pain cannot be treated. Rejection has deep consequences for everyone and is the root of every problem America is facing.
Parents you have 18 years to model love, loyalty and commitment. Teach your children "how" to choose a life of commitment. To own the honor of "Commitment" you must critically evaluate everyone and everything in every area of life BEFORE you commit.
Your marriage is your company or ministry. Don't you want to be the best, most stable, profitable, global successful entrepreneurial family on earth! Set those goals high and go after them together! Be a TEAM!
The family unit leaves no one behind! Commit to your marriage and commit to your children!
Step into the World!

Surveys repoert a hundred million church goers have no understanding of the biblical significance of the state of Israel. Therefore, these same Christians may have no idea what consequences America "may" face when an angry and strongly-worded condemnation of Israeli and their plans to build 300 housing units in the Samarian community of Shiloh comes from our U.S. President.
The US State Department on Wednesday October 5, 2016 invoked the memory of recently deceased former president Shimon Peres in an apparent attempt to shame Israel into halting construction. Click here to read more.
According to the article written by Abra Forman, the US government held to its position that settlements are the single largest impediment to peace between Israel and the Palestinians, declaring that “Israelis must ultimately decide between expanding settlements and preserving the possibility of a peaceful two-state solution.”
October 5, 2016 the U.S. Department of State released a Press Statement saying "We strongly condemn the Israeli government's recent decision to advance a plan that would create a significant new settlement deep in the West Bank. Israelis must ultimately decide between expanding settlements and preserving the possibility of a peaceful two state solution.
If you are a student of Prophecy you might want to check out Bill Koenig's website as he brings a rich perspective of what is going on in Washington, D.C. and how we can relate issues such as dividing the land of Israel, bathing the White House in the colors of the rainbow, claiming that America is no longer a Christian nation or catering to Islam to--- prophecy..
William Koenig, director of Koenig International News documents how the United States has suffered major catastrophes on the very same day or within 24 to 48 hours of a United States President applying pressure on Israel to trade her land for promises of "peace."
From the Tsunami in the Indian Ocean that killed a quarter of a million people to Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf of Mexico which swept across New Orleans, his book documents it all. Hurricanes, tornado outbreaks and floods just might not be coincidences but an awe-inspiring signs that God is actively involved in the affairs of Israel.
Just some interesting thoughts Christian mothers might want to discuss with older children around the family table! Raising Critical Thinkers!
Tonight we talked about my chart keeping at dinner and I took out a book I have written but not published yet with all this interesting data! The months of September and October are very special times on God's calendar and definitely worth paying attention too! My medical career revolves around medical charts that document "appointments" and conversations I had with patients and testing outcomes. Years ago I became passionate about implementing the same process in my personal life and started keeping "charts" on our nation and world as it relates to my Bible studies.
Today in America we currently have the United Nations General 71st Assembly going on in NYC. It started on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 and will finish Tuesday, September 20, 2016. It should be noted we also currently have Bombings or should I say things that are "exploding and blowing out windows" going on in NYC and NJ but some leaders can't seem to utter the word bomb! It also should be noted President Obama spoke at the United Nations for the last time during his presidency at the United General Assembly.
Over the past few months our nation had headlines such as LGBTQ, Oppression Concerns, Racism, Old Glory National Anthem, Bombing Attacks in our Cities, & BDS/Israel.
I've noticed related consequences America has experienced in her past that seem to mirror issues we face today.
What does any of this mean for America's future? The only thing we do know is keep your eyes & ears on the Obama Administration and what Washington is doing towards Israel in the next few weeks. We have patterns we can look back on such as Hurricanes and Stock Market Crashes all related to consequences of our government putting pressure on Israel.
Since The Biblical Feast are right around the corner it would be profitable to study the Fall Feast and take time to evaluate your own personal spiritual health as it relates to America's spiritual crises.
I took my girls out to lunch and they asked me about the Clinton's and why Ms. Clinton appears so sick. I was thinking this may take longer than lunch but here are the facts I shared with them.
Her resume is the only objective data the American people have to evaluate her credentials. Ms. Clinton has been in politics for 30 years and cannot get anything done. She has no business or leadership skills and she has a resume that proves her inadequacies. Our young folks cannot and must not get their information from the media talking heads who themselves were young kids when Ms. Clinton was starting her political career.
I asked myself if I would hire Ms. Clinton to lead my company that my husband and I have worked 25 years to build. The answer is absolutely No Way based on her resume, and leadership skills therefore, I would not vote for her to lead my country.
I would however hire Mr. Trump based on his resume and leadership skills. I'm not electing a Pastor or a Friend so I am not judging the candidates based on bedside manner. Mr. Trump has a resume to demonstrate leadership as evidenced by the qualified Thinktanks he routinely seeks counsel and surrounds himself. His list of Supreme Court Justices is excellent. A smart person knows what they don't know and hires expert advisers. It's called wisdom. You show me someones family, home life, close friends, business success, and a criminal background check and I'll tell you what their Tax Returns are going to show without ever needing to see them.
In good conscious before God I write to mentor younger Americans. Our young Millennials & Generation Z-ers must evaluate the 3 decades of Hillary Clinton's professional resume. The chronic crises our country is diagnosed with is in full blown metastatic disease. We can no longer look to "political party platforms" for those days are long over. The Bench Mark for political office seekers has to be exactly like it is for healthcare professionals which is "show us your resume, credentials/license and criminal background record." America is done with criminal career politicians and the "establishment" on both sides.
Term limits is where this is all going to end up when the American people demand reform in the coming years. I say we need to hold political professionals to healthcare provider standards and obtain Licensure. No more establishment mentality. You should need a license to even qualify to run for political office. Let us require National Board Exams for political seats across the nation. If you can't pass the written and oral exam then you don't receive your license. If you can't pass the criminal background check then you don't receive your license. No license no filing for election campaigns.
Where are the standards for any political position from School Board to President of the Country? It doesn't matter who you are, it is unsafe to put anyone in a leadership position without a basic knowledge base demonstrated through written and oral examinations. Why does the government put so much demand on healthcare professionals but not themselves? Their profession is equally critical to the community and national health.
I was fortunate to study Ms. Clinton years ago during a Health Infomatics course I was required to take as part of earning my FNP/MS Degree from UNCW back in 2000. The course required candidates to write a research paper on the Failed National Healthcare Initiative called HillaryCare. I remember as I was doing the research I would end up on rabbit trails consisting of so many criminal investigations surrounding Ms. Clinton. I found it very difficult to follow her healthcare reform work, connect the dots and write an analysis.
At that time Hillary Clinton was at the center of so many investigations that I remember saying many times, "what kind of couple or first lady is this person?" I had the same concerns when she was elected Senator and Secretary of State. I'm still shaking my head in disbelief as current FBI investigations are released. I spent my early career building a home, getting my masters degree, raising four little ones, while my husband and I were building careers serving in rural healthcare.
Ms. Clinton and her hubby were spending the last three decades getting fined for dishonesty by federal court judges and tax payers were paying for all the investigation court costs and it is EXACTLY the same today! Can you even imagine what the investigation cost is going to be when all of her current investigations are totaled up and "billed" to tax payers. I am waiting for that financial figure to eventually come out and add-it-to this writing at the bottom of this page!
I have a son and daughter who will VOTE in their 1st Presidential Election this year who were not even born yet when Ms. Clinton was the ONLY FIRST LADY ever Subpoenaed by a Grand Jury back in 1994. Do you realize how much that cost tax payers...
Ms. Clinton is the last person who should be criticizing Mr. Trump for bankruptcy business deals which are legal options in business law when she bankrupted healthcare during the years of HillaryCare to the tune of 32 Million in wasted dollars and lied about her lack of skills to federal judges all while Americans again paid for the investigational court cost which were reported somewhere around $750.000 dollars. She too refused to release her Tax Returns during Cattlegate until investigations were complete.
For those of you who were in diapers, elementary or middle school at the time like my own college and medical school kids you don't really know Ms. Clinton's resume, The failed program she was the leader of called HillaryCare cost the American people $32 Million Dollars as Ms. Clinton led the National Healthcare Task Force which was the cornerstone of her husbands administrations initial agenda. The plan called "HillaryCare" was going to be implemented through managed competition groups. The plan stated that all Americans would receive a National Health Security Card.
Ms. Clinton designed a National Health Board to monitor and enforce the standards of Health Care, budget issues and pharmaceutical pricing. In the end the entire team was shown to be unqualified and dishonest and the taxpayer court costs to the American people were $725,00 as Hillary Clinton and others were fined $450,000 for DISHONESTY when a federal judge hauled her and her team members into court.
Ms. Clinton said the plan was to be funded with savings from Medicare and Medicaid as well as increases on tobacco. Long story short the 1,342 page plan came to a screaming halt on September 26, 1994 and it was announced the plan was dead because a rookie like Hillary Clinton was the wrong person for the job with no skill set or knowledge base.
The Plan was overloaded with bureaucracy that never stood a chance. In the end the entire plan was thrown in the garbage and today I've noticed that much of the information on HillaryCare that was once available is now difficult to find on-line.
I love my children and I have worked all my life so they have a beautiful future in the country I love. We have two choices in a few weeks so please review both candidates resumes and cast your vote for the person that will take our America into her future.
Just my thoughts & I'll see you when the smoke clears!
The Flag and Patriotism is non-negotiable issue for me and I wanted to hear what my college kids thought about the current pulse in America today at lunch. All this NFL stuff is nothing more than a embarrassing display of some serious gross uneducated players and fellow Americans who stand with them. I wanted to make sure all my kids understand HISTORY and who the Sons of Maryland were. This table conversation is going to be a lecture!
The one banner that unites all of America is our beloved flag and sadly it has been disrespected & used to divide our country. Many of us are reaching out to grasp hold of our flag as the only banner that connects us and has the power to heal our country. On the anniversary of 9/11 many of us wonder why Pro players like Kaepernick, Rapinoe, Marshall and now U.S. Navy soldiers can be so confused and ignorant that they would protest an historic symbol of courage and bravery.
To signal out the flag and "take a knee" as a weapon of protest is tragic. Such behavior is caused from lack of wisdom or intellectually they have no idea who Francis Scott Key was or what moved him to write the Star Spangled Banner, the one song we sing together as Americans.
Francis Scott Key sure had a Protest Moment on the eve of September 13, as he was held prisoner on a British fleet and forced to watch his beloved country bombed as rockets pounded and lit up the sky of Baltimore in the War of 1812.
In the War of 1812, the United States took on the greatest naval power in the world, Great Britain. Baltimore’s Fort McHenry, and its brave men withstood more than 25 HOURS of bombardment by the British Navy.
The sight of this bombardment and prolonged attack of Baltimore was more than Francis Scott Key or (any of us) could mentally or physically stand & watch. He prayed those brave men in the Fort could hold out. It was in that moment he took out an envelope and began to jot down a few lines describing the pain of what he was witnessing.
America was a land of brave and free people, and the flag symbolized that freedom, that courage. The words came quickly as his journal records. Francis Scott Key wrote that his head pounded with the sound of exploding shots and shells and it was the courage and bravery of the men holding on under intense fire that provided the inspiration of his poem. Maryland had called upon its sons to defend our flag and our nation.
From the pages of his journals history records........"I CAN SEE IT!" "I CAN SEE IT!" "The flag - our flag - it's still there!" Are you sure its OUR flag, Francis? asked Colonel Skinner. "YES, YES!" "IT'S OURS! "IT'S OUR BELOVED RED, WHITE AND BLUE!" "Thank God it is such a huge Banner!" The British have given up. We Won! "WE WON!" Within hours Francis Scott Key was headed for the wharf in the Baltimore harbor!
The Star Spangled Banner is a Poem of Celebration, of Glory and Hope, said Francis Scott Key.
His journals record "I stood praying while straining to see if the flag was still flying over the Fort for if it fell that meant the Fort had surrendered and the city would no longer be FREE."
What American wouldn't stand for our national anthem and stand with every man and woman who held down "Forts" under enemy fire for the Hope & Glory of America? The smoke will clear in our country as it always has because we "intelligently" work out our differences. For this is the secret that made America Great. May we ALWAYS see the red, white and blue banner flying! May it NEVER fall into the hands of the enemy.
As for me and my house, we will Stand With Old Glory and with great pride we will always sing The Star Spangle Banner with gratitude and thanksgiving.
May God Bless America! I'll strain to see you when the smoke clears.....and may our flag still be flying!
Over this past weekend, nine people were killed, and 50 others wounded in Chicago, home of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, where Rahm Emanuel is the mayor. Since President Obama took office in 2009, there have been close to 3,500 murders in Chicago. Read Lieutenant Colonel Alan West's full story HERE Colonel West is one man that I point my son towards to follow his leadership & read his work. He is a true patriot, leader and role model for young men!
As a homeschooling mother for 24 years I have mentored my son in hundreds of areas. We like reading autobiographies from world history. I love reading books about great inventions and inventors, scientist, artists, leaders, courage, music and famous congressman, lawyers and senators as a way to inspire myself and my kids.. We've studied the steps of Webster, Lincoln, Pasteur, Columbus, Jackson, Carver and Morse just to name a few! One tip Mr. Carver wrote in his diaries was he got up at 4 a.m. each day asking the good Lord what He would have him do today! He was known as the plant doctor who invented well over 300 products! Click here to read more of his fascinating bio!
My son is a big sports fan so the actions of Mr. Kaepernick over the last few days deserve a conversation in every home. This is a great teaching moment for mothers as you demonstrate the fact that decisions and relationships affect the course of human history.
Sadly, we've all had to read more than we wanted to regarding Kaepernick. I read up on him for no other reason but to try and understand "why" he had such disrespect our for our military. An article written by the Conservative Tree House reported some concerns that the media and the NFL will avoid in these discussions like the plague, but the Truth Has No Agenda. Click Here to read this article.
The article reports that during the off-season Kaepernick converted to Islam. Colin Kaepernick is also engaged to Black Lives Matter activist and hip-hop radio personality DJ Nessa Diab. Black Lives Matter as an activist group is synonymous with promotion of authentic Islam. In the social justice arena, some report there is no daylight between the various BLM activism groups, and activist Islam. They are interwoven amid every controversial eruption over the past six years. They have tried to draw attention to it numerous times, but many don’t fully grasp the scope of the relationship between radical Islam and Black Lives Matter. It’s a symbiosis, a complete synergy in activism and intent.
The league said, “Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the national anthem.” It is noted that 49ers player Colin Kaepernick sat in front of the water coolers on the sideline while his teammates stood for The National Anthem..
Mr. Kaepernick said “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he told NFL Media in an interview published on Saturday. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder,”
NFL players would serve Black Lives Matter better by talking about the deaths in Chicago. It was reported that one of the victims over the weekend was Nykea Aldridge, first cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade, who was caught in the crossfire. Click Here.
Aldridge was a mother who at the time was walking her infant baby in a stroller. She was gunned down in cold blood, and consequently died Friday.. As a nurse I am guessing this probably was Ms. Aldridge's first attempt at going for a walk with her infant, since she was post-partum. The baby, just 3 weeks old, by the Grace of God, was not injured, If Ms. Aldridge was nursing her precious baby, I can tell you the infant wewn on and had a terrible weekend screaming for its mother as the baby learned to bottle feed.
This tragedy is not about a flag, or a country that oppresses black people or the National Athem. Great leaders can be found every day building into the lives of people all over this country and certainly fill the pages of American history books like;
George Washington Carver said "May God ever bless, keep, guide and continue to prosper you in your uplifting work for humanity, be it great or small, is my prayer. He was greatly used by God to discover countless numbers of scientific wonders and to lead a life which has inspired millions of Christians everywhere!
Mahalia Jackson said "Blues are the songs of despair" Gospel songs belong to the Lord. "Gospel songs are the songs of hope" Mahalia became an internationally known recording artist and church performer. I wish I could have been there the day Mahalia received a phone call from Mayer Duley of Chicago asking her to sing The Star Spangled Banner the night before John F. Kennedy was to take the oath of office as president! I know that on that historic day her mother smiled down from heaven!
Samuel Morse a famous artist boarded a ship in France to sail for New York and the story goes on to tell us when he disembarked in NYC announced to his brothers that he had an important invention that would astonish the world! He invented the telegraph as a way to communicate by means of electricity! The dots and spaces made it possible! He gave of his life full time to inventing the telegraph for 12 years!
Samuel Morse founded the School of Painting called "Democratic Art." The purpose of this type of painting was to educate the "public mind" and turn people's thoughts to moral principles. His Representative Hall is an example of a painting that shows democracy in action!
He took a leading role in the establishment of Sunday schools. With missionary zeal he constantly urged others to the faith!
Next time you use your PHONE for communication or pictures take a moment to remember the father of the telegraph, who is also the father of photography in American History! Nearly every country in the world gave him a medal or some other type of award. After his death, he was elected to the Hall of Fame of Great Americans!
I wonder if our Mr. 49er and his girlfriend ever think about Samuel Morse's 12 years of labor in wire, magnets, batteries, drawings, diagrams of wire circuits, electromagnets, levers, switches, and a moving strip of paper as the "foundation" of their social media outlets they so "freely" use to divide the country?
Here is another favorite leader of mine, Richard Allen who was born into slavery in 1760. Allen founded the first national black church in the United States, the African Methodist Episcopal Church, in 1816.
It is challenging to understand history yet remember it if you were never taught history in your school systems or if you are not an avid reader. The millennials, liberals and Clinton Republicans might want to pick up a few history books and study up on the great cost of life when leaders LIE. For example we can see the results and outcomes of dishonest leaders and events such as; Hitler, Cuban Missile Crises, Vietnam War, Chernobyl, Watergate, Bill Clinton & Monica, Iran Contra Affair, Benghazi, or the Veterans Health Administration scandals and on and on.
For the young millennials sake (the age I am using is 18 to 34) let us go back to a moment in history.. The year is 1938 and a man named "Hitler" had a critical meeting with the then British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, These two leaders met to discuss reapportionment in Czechoslovakia of the Germans under Czech rule. Hitler gave his word to Chamberlain that war could be averted if the reapportionment occurred.
History records Prime Minister Chamberlain said the following about Hitler, “I got the impression that here was a man that could be relied upon when he had given his word.”
Fast forward to today, as we sit on the cusp of an election cycle, that holds the fate and destiny of America's future. We have asked candidate Ms. Clinton questions about the alleged crimes that she has been accused of committing or committed but she will not address the questions and does not do interviews. However, she has given her word to the American people that she is innocent and has asked for their VOTE.
The critical question becomes "are liberal democrats thinking the same way Prime Minister Neville Chaberlain did & have they invested their lives in the policy of "appeasement" because they want to BELIEVE Ms. Clinton?" Does the Democratic Patriots, and Clinton Republicans have the impression she is a women that can be relied upon when she gives her word?"
Is the Liberal Media, Clinton Politicians and Campaign workers so concerned about their careers they have entered into a gambling match for the sake of their political careers?
I don't know the answers to these questions but what I do know is that in medicine we do not tell patients and their families everything is going to be okay when it is not going to be okay. We have to deal with the reality of the truth because lives are at stake and the family has to make informed decisions regarding their loved one.
America IS our "loved one" and we must be told "the truth" so we can make informed voting decisions. We must ask "what exactly does globalization mean to Ms. Clinton and more importantly "what does she mean when she says radicalization of Americans? "
I have a daughter and son who will vote in their 1st Presidential Election this November. Their generation knows nothing of Ms. Clinton's entire resume.
May God Bless America and I'll see you when the smoke clears!
We have the capability today to view the world stage especially the historical Middle East crises moment by moment but we are not connecting what is taking place right before our very eyes as our patriot air is getting cut off and every breath seems to be getting more difficult.
Old Glory seems be very sick but her diagnosis seems to be unknown and it is the watchmen on the walls prayers that we must rely on. America might just have a diagnosis of terminal and non=reversible but I pray we have not hit the point of no return? For those of you who have read the book While England Sleeps by David Leavit, you might agree with me that someone needs to write another book called "While America Sleeps"
I wish I could invite America's young people over to my home for dinner. Sitting around talking during a healthy meal could be a great teaching moment. I'd love to share my heart with young folks.
The first question I'd ask them is "In the face of adversity, do you know without a doubt, that you have the endurance to secure food, water, shelter, safety and be equipped to help your family survive?" I'm thinking a discussion on Survival might be a topic of interest. History gives us great examples of what young families did to survive during dark days of unrest and protests turned violent.
On the heals of barely recovering as a nation from an economic collapse we are now violating our cities and protesting across America paying no attention to the agenda set forth by radical Islam who are watching and waiting to take advantage of the situation. We insult our flag, argue like preschoolers, kill each other and then blame it all on law enforcement as we destroy our communities. This has to be insanity or a terminal cancer because who would do this to the greatest nation that ever was? This is not how we solve our problems.
Does anyone remember history and the Mongol invasions? These invasions induced a population displacement on a scale never seen before in central Asia as well as eastern Europe. Word that the Mongol hordes were coming would spread terror and panic among communities. Now what group of people does that remind you of today? We have BLM rioting with violence, Islamic attacks happening everywhere and a criminal running for the highest office of President. What in the world is going on with America?
Our beloved country is full of an argumentative spirit fighting back and forth about whose personal opinions are more correct than someone else's. People are accusing their neighbors of being too far left or too far right or even whose agenda matters the most. No one is connecting to the fact that this is exactly the root cause of full blown civil wars in Iraq, Libya, Syria or Yemen.
Given the chance I am sure any of the citizens in these countries would trade places with anyone in America right now. I don't think they would accuse Old Glory of oppression in this great land of opportunity.
When you find yourself in a the middle of a civil war and suddenly an over-night refugee running for your life, there is little time for protesting or blaming it on oppression. In Syria life changed overnight for everyone. Do you think any of them were able to grab backpacks of food, first aid, water, knife, fire starter, water bottles, clothes, light sources or something to keep warm? All the protesters, government handouts and media outlets all seemed to have vanished. No one is discussing whose life matters in Syria, Sudan or Turkey now.
Does America think we can continue to feed and incite gross conflicts that divide people and not end up just like Egypt, South Sudan or Turkey? Does anyone think for one moment the people in Algeria, Jordan or Lebanon don't wish for one moment they could transcend back to a more stable time?
Do American millennials who want it all for "free" ever think about safety and stability? Do you think Americans really get the refugee mentality and understand food, water, and medicine may be in short supply should our country be struck by a disaster. I'm thinking in moments of national crises "taking" a knee will finally hit home.
Shouldn't the core goal of a man's soul be to connect to spirituality, peace and goodness instead of constant division and tensions? If we sat around our dinner table with millennials from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Kuwait or Morocco don't you think they would rather embrace a religious community of peace and prosperity as opposed to dominance, violence and cutting off people's heads in the name of spiritual ideology?
See the difference between the young people of the middle east and American millennials is the middle eastern folks understands what is going on all around them, and are terrified by the thunder and continuous storms. History has not escaped their memories and it should not escape any of our memories.
If I could have America's young people over for dinner and a conversation I'd probably ask them if they ever heard of the Mongol Invasion. It is important to recognize we are not immune to the domestic & global unrest. We are especially vulnerable because we are a nation divided and caught up in cat fights over issues that don't even exist in the minds of most people.
If we think for one moment we are vaccinated against the deadly diseases of conflicts, which in the past ended up as Bubonic Plagues and Black Death then you have been lied too, or you have not been taught history. My friends It is possible to lose it all in just one generation..
My motherly advice for millennials is to STOP listening to social media and start a revolution to make America GREAT again. Advocate and protest to replace agitating news media with Historians, people who are actually qualified to put world news in context with accuracy, truth and time-tested solutions. Why keep repeating the same mistakes?
The next step would then be to understand how critical your VOTE is. See you cannot make America Great Again, if you do not STAND With America. Hang old glory from your homes and salute a Vet because it is your future that all of us our voting for in November....
Change starts with all of us working together! I'll see you when the smoke clears!
"Crossed" rifles in the sand are a comrade's tribute for killed soldiers.
According to a Gallup Youth Survey just two-thirds of American teens (66%) are able to identify Adolf Hitler with Germany. One in seven (14%) give some other answer: 21% do not know which nation Hitler is associated. Only one-fourth of teens (25%) can associate Winston Churchill with England. Half (50%) cannot identify Churchill with a particular nation.
Less than half (42%) of teens did not know what document guarantees the right of free press in this country! 42% of teens answered this question by saying they didn't know at all and others gave some semblance of a correct answer with 18% naming the Bill of Rights, 16% naming the Constitution, and 8% mentioning the First Amendment.
Parents, please do not rely on the schools or churches to teach or impart wisdom into your children. You have been given 18 years to "prepare" to give them back to God, well read so they can lead this nation.
Your "leadership" attention needs to be first to your marriage & children and second to your work or career. When you are successful in those two areas your leadership skills and mentoring will be easily observed by others and desired.
What a great way to teach the Word of God but my modeling it in your daily life! Tonight pause with your kids for a moment, deliver a salute and pay tribute to the more than 160,000 troops who landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. June, 6, 1944.
It is well known that some of our heroes were only 16, 17, 18, and 19 years old when they enlisted illegally because they felt "called" to the crusade regardless of age.
As I sat through a Christian church service yesterday I was surprised the Pastor did not mention D-Day. I listened intently to him energize his congregants about a new "series" he was starting that promised to motivate people! The series is based on teaching believers to do "more" volunteering in the church with the return promise of participating in the church "leadership development" program.
As I looked around for young people and groups of teens sitting together I was thinking a quick film right now on D-Day would illustrate leadership and the potential we have in our families to teach patriotism and honor as prerequisite for leadership development. Sadly, according to polls most teens have no idea that in 1944 teenagers became paratroopers in the 82nd Airborne Division and jumped into Normandy by way of a C-47!
Reading, studying and applying the teachings of the Torah is the leadership plan of God. Your family IS your ministry and you need to focus your "dart" exactly on the target which is your marriage and your child! To experience success you must know exactly what target you are trying to hit! The school systems, youth groups, & the hundreds of volunteer opportunities are all good and well, but when the American Family falls apart so goes the nation and the church. I will testify to you standing on 27 years of marriage and 6 kids that know one is coming to your rescue. YOU must be the leadership of your home and serve your world from that perspective.
In Deut. 11:18:23 we read "And ye shall teach Them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."
Your children are given to you to "steward" and you must as parents teach and impart biblical "wisdom" in your children. Teach along the path as you go. Visit historic places and look up history. Host a Vet in your home and invite all the kids over to listen to his story. There isn't much time left before all the World War II veteran's are gone from earth. Embrace one today!
May God Bless America
Purim is a Warning for the USA and one can learn much from understanding the teaching in Purim. The danger lies in a leader's advisors.
In my prayer time this morning I was praying about the current terrorists attacks Belgium families are dealing with and the paralyzing fear & horror their children are experiencing. My mother's heart is broken for Belgium as well as the 80% of Syrian children dramatically & forever traumatized by the 8 year Syrian War.
As I approached my kitchen and saw my precious little ones I wondered what America will be like 50 years from now? Will this terror continue to grow on American soil? Will the disagreements between political parties continue to grow more divisive? Will our streets become Syria?
Enough is enough and it is time for the world to stand together and reject this senseless hateful religious theology called radical Islam who tolerate nothing and no one outside of their ideology.
The bloodshed comes four days after the arrest of fugitive Paris terror attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam in Brussels. No-one has claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s carnage in the Belgian capital but supporters of ISIL have taken to social media to praise the attacks.
Good people will always yearn for peace and restoration, but there will always be those among us who will not assimilate and have the goal to conquer by the sword. Without rule of law and respect for country unity is impossible and a longing for supremacy over others becomes the goal.
Our world has changed forever and the faint echos of hopeful campaign slogans describing a better world weigh in the balance and are found wanting. We find ourselves in the same situation as 4th Century Queen Esther and the Jewish people did and their story reminds us all of the never ending anti-semitic and ever increasing anti-christian hate all over the word.
“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” (Est 4:14)
Last year (2015) at this same time, on the eve of Purim, Israel's President Benjamin Netanyahu addressed our US Congress (click here) . In summary the event demonstrated two leaders laying out what amounted to the biggest policy schism between two countries in years. President Obama defended his diplomatic efforts to negotiate a deal with Iran while President Netanyahu presented them as dangerously naïve.
President Obama as well as Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and more than 50 Democratic lawmakers disrespectfully made a decision to not attend President Netanyahu’s speech.
While the White House did not publicly encouraged a boycott, it did send emails late Monday inviting House Democratic aides to a trade meeting at the White House on Tuesday at a time that would make it hard for them to attend the speech.
As this years Purim 2016 Celebration begins we find Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaking these words;
"He hopes the US will continue to reject any move towards a UN Security Council resolution backing Palestinian statehood." The resolution “to pressure Israel would further harden Palestinian positions and thereby could actually kill the chances of peace for many, many years,” he said he was ready to begin talks “immediately, without preconditions” for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The PM has insisted that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas did not back the idea on Tuesday at a meeting of the powerful pro-Israel AIPAC lobbying group in Washington via satellite from Israel.
As Europe explodes, we wonder how America got itself into the position it finds itself in today as the crises in the Middle East escalates to epic proportions. I clearly remember December 21, 2011 when President Obama was in Fort Bragg making it official and ending 9 years of war and leaving Iraq's future in the hands of its people.
How dim this vision of Mr. Obama's has become as he once came into office seeking to "improve" relations with Russia and Israel." One can only wonder why we find President Obama in Cuba meeting with Rual Castro fulfilling some crazy "pledge" to improve relations with Havana.
The problem is Rual Castro has "demanded" the closure of the US Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay. This makes me very nervous as a mother who observes President Obama's futile attempts at an "improving relations" strategies over his presidential era. I don't know about you but my head is spinning trying to follow any logical thought pattern of our Commander and Chief.
Lets just scan a few March 16, 2016 headlines from the past week and connect President Obama, Israel, Headlines and Weather all together.

So who do you think is to blame for the new sub category of non church going Christians?If you're a church-going Christian, the presidential polls are probably baffling to you! An article written by Alvin Chang showed a difference between church going Christians and non-church going Christians.
Non-church-going favor Trump and church goers favor Cruz. Click Here to read his article. So who is to blame for the non church Christians? Is than bible illiterate Christians? Parents, Pastors, Youth Groups, Public Schools, Peer influence, the College Campus, University Faculty or the Media? Do you think anyone even cares that we have this division of Christians and The Church?
As a home-school family I raised my kids to be passionate about education and intelligence. A working knowledge of math, science, history, politics, logic, geography and especially bible knowledge. This is not a home school standard it is a basic academic standard. We assumed all parents were at the very least holding schools accountable for proper education. Researchers are reporting that the 2016 Election may stand or fall based on the "NONES."
1.Our national debt is $19 trillion
2.Unfunded liabilities exceed $120 TRILLION
3.Defective rule of law culture begins in the White House and is trickling down...
4.No administrative democratic accountability
5 Baby organ harvesting
6. Federal Reserve creates "bad is good" economy
We must ask the question "Who Are The Nones?" Do I dare ask, "Is it the Christians who are the NONES?"
If the Pew Research group is conducting studies based on the average person on the street the question must be asked " Who is the average people on the street?"
Get ready for this:
#1 Pew Research
Recent Pew Studies report a decrease in religious beliefs and behaviors was largely attributable to the “nones” defined as the growing minority of Americans, particularly the Millennial Generation. This millennial generation say they do not belong to any organized faith.
#2 Christian Voting History
Research reports the reason President Obama was re-elected for a 2nd term was because of Christians not voting. Franklin Graham, the son of the famed Rev. Billy Graham said that the responsibility for an Obama re-election was on Christians’ shoulders. NBC'S Domenico Montanaro who disagrees with Graham was quoted saying "when it comes to the actual proportions, Graham may have had a solid point in claiming that less than half of Christians actually voted." Montanaro notes based on the U.S. Census and current voting patterns fewer than half of the evangelical community members headed to the polls.
#3 Life-long students of prophecy understand that not belonging to any Bible TEACHING church translates into knowing nothing about scripture and more importantly historical world prophecy. If we couple the fact that the Bible is an "Historical" primary history book that has been taken out of the school systems since 1963, we now have generations of Americans who have never read one single word that the Bible contains.
Do you think understanding the warnings, judgments and events that are coming should be extremely important to the American Christian, especially as he/she contemplates their 2016 vote? It should be of extreme importance to Christians but if you are NOT in a church that teaches prophecy or you don't attend church at all, you probably are in some state of confusion as a Christian.
A quick scan of the hundreds of videos interviewing people from high school to college to random adults on the streets of America are at the very least shocking. I viewed a series of videos that quickly demonstrate random adults cannot answer basic questions that a middle school age youth should be able to answer. Click here or here or here or here! The "brain" of the consumer has all but turned to mush and who is to blame?
Christians made a choice to stay home in the last few election cycles and left the decision of the highest office of our land to the "average person on the street." So if you haven't watched the videos please take a moment and go back and watch them.
Rick Santorum was quoted saying "Iran is a theocracy. They're a theocracy that has deeply embedded beliefs that the after-life is better than this life. President Ahmadinejad has repeatedly said the principal virtue of the Islamic Republic of Iran is martyrdom. So when your principal virtue is to die for Allah, then it's not a deterrent to have a nuclear threat if they would use a nuclear weapon. It is, in fact, an encouragement for them to use their nuclear weapon.
This election is an election of National Security and Supreme Court Laws we will live by for generations to come. We are facing a threat of nuclear weapons from a culture who thinks martyrdom is a blessing. We have corrupt politicians who do not understand biblical prophecy, coupled with a critically ill church currently in an biblical educational coma.
Here is another question for the American dinner table. Should we conclude if you do not vote and you will not fight for our Judeo Christian American Heritage, are you the audience for the upcoming Prime-time Lucifer series? Just when I thought prime-time television could not get any worse – Fox television is set to make a show that celebrates satan himself, Lucifer.
Lucifer is a new drama series that follows the life of Satan as he lives in Los Angeles attempting to solve a murder and use his powers to start helping people. (See Trailer Here)
A quick search of Christian blog posts regarding the Lucifer series shows "comments" that seem to welcome this series and see nothing wrong with this show. I cannot even get my head around a picture of the American family all sitting around together watching a series that portrays the devil in a "healthier kind of way" "one who fights evil" or as some comments said "the drama that helps you relax." As a mother I have a vision for a different America for my girls and legacy for my sons! A world where God has given children the ability to dream and to grow up with opportunities and freedom. Americans do not want to adopt the customs and culture of global elitists and oppressive religious ideology.
Tim Watts was quoted in News Focus as reporting "the behind the scenes machinations of big money and politics are so well hidden from most of the population, that if people actually knew how things were really run, we would quite literally have a second revolution overnight." So for the Conservative Christians let me sum it up for those who think the media, especially "conservative" FOX News is fair and balanced.
1. Mr. Murdoch Rupert owns News Corporation (since 1989.)
2. News Corporation owns everything with the FOX name associated with it.
3. News Corporation owns Harper & Row,
4. News Corporation owns Zondervan
5. News Corporation owns the New York Post,
6. News Corporation owns The Wall St. Journal,
7. News Corporation owns AVON,
8. News Corporation owns Bible Gateway
Zondervan, has 300 million copies of the NIV Bible translation and is also home to some of the biggest names in Christian publishing like megachurch pastor Rick Warren.
AVON publishes the Satanic Bible
AVON publishes the NIV Bible
Parents we can only control what happens in our homes but we must be aware that we have a country full of very young adults all held captive to Mr. Murdoch Rupert mogul-dom, which includes a personal fortune that Forbes pegged at $6.3 billion last year.
He controls the media, news, movies, satanic bible publishing, NIV Bible, megachurch pastors, authors, and now a Lucifer TV series. May the true students of the bible be ready for the words of Prophecy to be fulfilled!
May God Bless America
"Around The Table"
As a mother of 6, I find it interesting to hear opinions on cultural issues, spirituality, politics, religion, & healthcare from THE GENERATION raised on fake non factual social media! This blog is topics I discussed around my kitchen table with my own kids!
