Many can see the destruction and world chaos coming through past and present world leaders with Trump being the fuse towards major war. My wife and I also, just as others worldwide, live our life day to day while accepting whatever may be without a whole lot of choice in matters at hand. Many years ago we helped a couple by selling our 20’x18′ hollow block\bamboo home http://timeoftrouble.webs.com/ourhome.htm on credit only to be never paid since my wife illness became so major that she had to stop teaching 4th grade which caused us to move to another province in the Philippines. And here in the Philippines when out of sight, you become out of mind leaving only memories of your loss.
Before my first Social Security came in August, and we were broke just as most all the years past, we trusted a couple that wanted to buy a coffee vending machine we had that cost 12000 peso when we did have some money two years ago. Because it was still like new, out of kindness I let it go for 8000 pesos with only 3000 down followed by two 1000 payments — and then no more with two months gone by. Now because we need our money they refuse to pay, the 50 year old British man, an ex army sergeant, has thrown a rock at where we live, and even wants to kill me — wow! what a wonderful world we live in full of liars, thieves, crime and total corruption in every direction. Anyway, it is only the 22nd of September which leaves over two weeks before another deposit of about 49000 peso [$970] comes — and for a week we have already had very little down to near nothing now. Why is that? Well, last month we had to purchase on credit [just as everyone else] what we have been without– so now we have an owe of about 200,000 peso or $4000 dollars that got us a small 3 cyl Suzuki truck and a new 250 Rusi motorbike. The tiny carry-all is so we can buy and sell bamboo furniture when funds allow, and also get away [we pray] into a private quiet area for prayer, worship, and learning directly from our Creator each 7th day Sabbath, plus all appointed High days or Feasts as instructed in the Torah– whereas the motorbike is just something a billion in Asia and poor countries use for daily transportation. At any rate the fact is that life has always been hard for us since our Creator brought us together from opposite parts of this world in 2007 — just as it is and has always been hard for billions of others on this planet poorly ruled my man– such as the multitudes hit by hurricanes and other world disasters.
The whole bottom line is that we surely could use any help at all to get us through for the next two weeks — then comes payments on our transportation, and the trip that I must make to Manila via flight where the US embassy is so I can re-new my passport that expired over 2 years ago, and get an ACR [alien certificate registration] that I also need for ID which my bank [where my SS is deposited] has asked for– so there will go about 25000 [$500] making next month also very difficult. I know that if possible, some will do what they can to help us in any small way because it also is instruction from our Creator to do what pleases Him through obedience to scripture.
In all that I do. . .
Trust in Yahweh with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct or make straight your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Striving to follow instruction from our Creator is the only life I really have, yet still stumble often– therefore have well learned what it means to endure whatever hardship may come because life has never been easy for most on this planet.
We all need to start looking out for each other– so our Creator looks out for us as individuals during the hard years that lie ahead for all on earth. Read the 16 verses in Psalms 91, then Leviticus 19:18 with deep feeling; and meditate on how our Creator views your hearts intent with nothing ever hid.
PLEASE SHARE SO HELP COMES JUST A LITTLE HERE AND A LITTLE THERE.

Who I am, and where my heart and mind stays can be found in these two links out of the 16 I have worked at creating through the past decade.
Where can any absolute full truth concerning our entire civilization be found? Certainly not in the game of political government where evil rules over humans as game pieces of worthless life. How about all the different religions or beliefs on this earth which only twist minds and take money as they sell their lies for tithes, love offerings, or any other sound good reason that billions will believe?— or whatever they choose as their God of blindness taking world population into planned controlled slavery. Do not believe me, but rather seek and search using world conditions along with our Creators instruction as your only followed road map, and truth you will find.
Where is our human freedom? What really is freedom? Who on this civilized planet can really live properly as they choose without some kind of interference? Does anyone even know what proper righteous living is beyond meaningless words with nothing added?
Look at human life worldwide like this; if we all loved each other regardless of culture or color of skin- would not our planet become an example on how to gain a lifetime of happiness followed with eternal life for all civilization being properly ruled through the laws of our Creator? — rather than the laws of mankind which have always brought wars, suffering, death, and destruction?
So exactly where do we now all stand regarding the future of all life on this planet? Will religion or individual beliefs reveal what truly is? Never. This link below offers a large list beliefs with themselves missing just as all feeling they are the only truth — when actual blindness has also overtaken them on the greatest subject called love towards others which few in this misled world know through understanding with proper actions.
Perhaps end-time prophecy is where you put trust, but can what man teaches always be trusted?
For many, the way of seeing today’s reality, whether positive or negative, comes through what powerful world leaders say and do. Following is but one example of those in high places that, believe it or not, have been placed by our creator. (Daniel 2:20-22)
TRUMP’S MESSAGE TO UN: WE’RE COMING FOR YOU
President Trump spoke to the 200 plus members of the United Nations today in New York. He covered a variety of topics, but the main theme was war and the threat of war. He threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea. He also issued threats towards Iran, Venezuela and Syria. This is on top of wars being waged in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. There are also covert and overt operations in Libya, Ukraine and Pakistan. Threats have been made against Russia and China as well. On top of this, the President has said he will consider economic sanctions against any nation who trades with or supports North Korea.
So that’s about a dozen nations, give or take a few, that are in the sights of the U.S. So, if you represent one of those nations not mentioned, what would you think? Somehow, somewhere, sometime, in the future, we may get on the bad side of the U.S. and the missiles and drones will fly.
If President Trump is trying to unify the world, he might just accomplish that, but not in the way he thinks. Country A may not be too friendly with country B, but since the U.S. is trying to pick fights with anyone they don’t like, maybe the 2 countries should form an alliance. Our nation may be the strongest nation militarily, but it is lunacy to think we can fight everybody at the same time.
When the subject for discussion becomes human rule, when has there ever been a mass population living happily through the ways of man riddled with crime and corruption being the cause and effect of all atrocities past and currently upon our entire human race which is always growing?
Because there is over 7.5 billion people, hundreds of millions of websites accompanied with endless audio, video and literature to read– how can one possibly gain any full knowledge from the mega mixture of truth and error that nullifies what truly is? In our Creator’s time many will learn truth through either repentance, death, resurrection, or as survivors when YHWH’s Kingdom becomes within; and those preferring human ways without repentance will die forever to become as if they never existed. Hell is but another major false teaching just as the rapture and much more billions have been led to believe- including me on some subjects found in the link below and back by many others; while all still lacking the most important subject being love towards others.
What I have found and learned well through these past 27 years is just how misled today’s world of Christianity really is- especially when love for others with good deed becomes the issue.
“After having heard it all, this is the conclusion: Fear Elohim, and keep his commands, because this applies to everyone. Elohim will certainly judge everything that is done. This includes every secret thing, whether it is good or bad. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
Do not we all on this earth live as a part of the screen generation? What does that mean? Has not computer, cell phone, theaters or television become the screen that rules each life in one way or another?
So which screen directs your life? What, who, or where is your idol being anything worshiped through mind or time devotion as one of life priorities- less our Creators instruction?
There is a truth with direction that is so very hard to find, few will locate it, and that is because – spiritually speaking – it comes not from this world. However, in this world of human beings there exists the individual way which seems right– but sadly will end in the many different ways of death. So says scripture none believe because all choose only what suits their mind while shunning anything not smooth and uplifting- such as unwanted truth/action/works which only those that have become set-apart from this world can understand. Would you like to know the way our Creator instructs?
The Way of Yahweh
A common theme throughout the Old Testament is “the way of Yahweh” – … I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to guard the way of Yahweh by doing righteousness and justice (Genesis 18:19).
The word “way” is the Hebrew word דרך (derekh, Strong’s #1870) literally meaning a road or path. Israel’s journey on the path of Yahweh is frequently addressed but often hidden behind the English translations.
Pointing out the road
From the root ירה (y.r.h) comes the verb ירה (yarah, Strong’s #3384) meaning to cast or throw as seen in Shemot 15:4 – Pharaoh’s chariots and his host he cast into the sea, and also in 1 Samuel 20:20 – And I will shoot three arrows to the side of it. This same verb can also be translated as “teach” in the sense of throwing the finger, or pointing, in a particular direction the one who is being taught is to walk – Teach me your way (Psalm 86:11). This last verse could be translated literally as Point me in the direction of your path.
Derived from the root ירה (y.r.h) is the noun תורה (torah, Strong’s #8451), meaning “the direction that is pointed out” or a “teaching” as in Proverbs 1:8 – Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and reject not your mother’s teaching. This same word is used throughout the Old Testament for the “teachings” of God our father – but his delight is in the teachings of Yahweh, and on his teaching he meditates day and night. (Psalm 1:2).
The Nomadic migration through the wilderness
The Hebrew language is composed of a series of roots. The most basic roots, parent roots, are formed by combining two letters together. In some cases, parent roots sharing a common letter are related in meaning such as in the roots צא, צו and צי which are all related to the nomadic migration. When a third letter is added to the parent root a child root is formed and the definition of this child root is going to be closely related to the parent.
The parent root צא (ts.a) represents the migration of the nomad from one location to another. The child root יצא (y.ts.a) also has the definition of the migration. The verb יצא(yatsa, Strong’s #3318), derived from this child root can be found in Exodus 20:2 – I am Yahweh your God, who migrated you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.This is the beginning of Israel’s migration from Egypt to the land he has promised them.
The parent root צו (ts.w) represents the directions the nomad takes on his migration. This same meaning is applied to the child root צוה (ts.w.h) and its verbal form, צוה (tsawah, Strong’s #6680), can be seen in Deuteronomy 1:19 – And we set out from Horeb… as Yahweh our God directed us. God provides Israel with their directions during their migration toward the land he has promised them.
The directions can be directions for a physical journey through a land or a journey through life. The noun מצוה (mitswah, Strong’s #4687), derived from the child root צוה (ts.w.h) by adding the letter מ (m), is used for this journey through life as seen in Deuteronomy 6:25 – And it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to do all this direction before the LORD our God.
The verb צוה (tsawah) is commonly translated as a command but this definition does not reflect the Hebraic background to the word. When we read about the “commands” of God in the Bible we have this image of a General giving his commands to his troops. But, the Hebraic concept behind these “commands” are the directions from God’s for our journey through life so that we will not get lost from the correct path.
The parent root צי (ts.y) represents the place of the nomads journey, the wilderness. From this parent root is derived the noun, ציי (tsiyiy, Strong’s #6728), meaning a wilderness as in Psalm 72:9 – They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; And his enemies shall lick the dust.
The wilderness is filled with landmarks which the nomad follows to guide their way. The noun ציון (tsiyuwn, Strong’s #6725), derived out of the parent root צי (ts.y) by adding the letters ון (ow.n) means a landmark as seen in Jeremiah 31:21 – Set up Landmarks for yourself, make yourself guideposts; consider well the highway, the road by which you went.
God has given Israel their directions to take them from landmark to landmark. As an example God directed Israel to rest on the seventh day, the seventh day is not the direction, it is the landmark to guide them on their journey through life from one Shabbat to the next. Each of the feasts were given as landmarks and the Torah provides the directions to recognize and find these landmarks. Just as there are many different kinds of landmarks in the wilderness such as, mountains, rock outcroppings, wadis and rivers, God has placed a wide variety of landmarks to guide Israel on their journey such as, a person in need or a lost animal. The Torah provided the directions to these landmarks as well as what direction to take once one has arrived at the landmark.
Zion is another name for Jerusalem but is more specifically the mountain within the city (Isaiah 2:3). The Hebrew word for Zion is ציון (tsiyown, Strong’s #6726), the very same word as above meaning “landmark” with just a slight change in pronunciation. Zion is not just a mountain it is the central landmark for Israel. Three times a year all of Israel was to travel to the landmark where God has placed his name (Exodus 23:17, Deuteronomy 16:16), this landmark is Zion (Isaiah 18:7).
Staying on course
On the path and lost from the path
When traveling the wilderness it is important to stay on course in order to find the next landmark as well as the pastures and water sources. If one was to lose their way they will become lost and may die if they do not return to the proper route. The idea of being on course and lost from the course is found in two Hebrew words, צדיק (tsadiyq, Strong’s #6662) and רשע (rasha, Strong’s #7563). The word tsadiyq literally means to stay on course, to remain on the path while rasha means to be lost from the path. Tsadiyq is usually translated as righteous and rasha as wicked but, these English words do not convey the original meaning behind the Hebrew very well.
One who is tsadiyq remains on the road, following God’s directions but on the other hand, one who is rasha is lost and is in jeopardy of death. Consider Proverbs 10:11 which states, The mouth of the tsadiyq is a source of life but the violence covers the mouth of the rasha.
Once one realizes that he has become lost (rasha) his goal is to turn around and return to the correct path. This idea is expressed in the Hebrew verb שוב (shuv, Strong’s #7725). This same verb is used in the context of repenting (returning to the path) from wrongdoing (lost from the path) and returning to the commands (directions) of God – And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day or, from a more Hebraic perspective – and you will return to the path and you will listen to the voice of Yahweh and you will follow all his directions which I have pointed out to you today (Deuteronomy 30:8).
The guiding light
In ancient times the stars would guide one on their journey. The Hebrew verb הלל (halal, Strong’s #7725) is the shining light of these stars – For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give their light הלל (Isaiah 13:10). This same word is also translated as “praise” but Hebraicly means to “look toward another as a shining light.” When the Psalms say, Praise Yah (halelu-Yah) (Psalm 135:3) it is literally saying “Look to Yah as the light that will guide you on your journey.”
Our life is suppose to be a migratory journey on God’s road. The Bible is the ‘map’ that shows us the directions, paths and landmarks which he has pointed out to us. The Bible is also the guide to show us how to stay on the path and how to find it again if we become lost on our way. If we are not reading (a.k.a. studying) this book how can we expect to find our way to the road of Yahweh?
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalms 119:105

There may or may not be some error in what you just read concerning the proper name of our Creator, [because there are many different views]. Also using LORD and God is not correct. However, aside from that, the message is very clear, well studied, and written; therefore when any walk and live according to what follows.
Duties of the People Toward Each Other = Love and Righteousness
“When you harvest the grain in your land, don’t harvest the grain in the corners of your fields or gather what is left after you’re finished. Don’t harvest your vineyard a second time or pick up fallen grapes. Leave them for poor people and foreigners. I am Yahweh your Elohim.
“Never steal, lie, or deceive your neighbor.
“Never swear by my name in order to deceive anyone. This dishonors the name of your Elohim. I am Yahweh.
“Never oppress or rob your neighbor. Never keep the pay you owe a hired worker overnight. Never curse deaf people or put anything in the way of blind people to make them stumble. Instead, fear your Elohim. I am Yahweh.
“Don’t be corrupt when administering justice. Never give special favors to poor people, and never show preference to important people. Judge your neighbor fairly. Never gossip. Never endanger your neighbor’s life. I am Yahweh.
“Never hate another Israelite. Be sure to correct your neighbor so that you will not be guilty of sinning along with him. Never get revenge. Never hold a grudge against any of your people. Instead, love your neighbor as you love yourself. I am Yahweh. (Leviticus 18:9-18) NOG
Since 2007 my wife and I have lived a very difficult life, and sad truth is that today’s Christianity, Torah [Law] keepers, Israelite’s, or any title have never shown any love, care, concern, or empathy — even thou I now have 27 years of seeking truth, 16 free websites, a published book, and knowledge of my own deception until full repentance has brought truth I would have never believed. What exactly is the way of full repentance? Believe Isaiah 59:2 while seeking to become contrite.
I. דַּכָּא adjective contrite (crushed) — דַּכָּא Isaiah 57:15; דַּכְּאֵי Psalm 34:19 — contrite Isaiah 57:15 (“” שְׁפַלרֿוּחַ); … Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance.

For any wanting what has never been taught in the worldwide religions of mankind, or for those of us willing to accept our own errors through decades or even a lifetime of false beliefs; unknown truth can now be learnt through this website http://assemblyoftrueisrael.com/ that spreads no lies, asks for no money, and proves all things via Hebrew Scripture along with many more in-depth resources that the natural minds of this world will not believe – and reason is because they trust in themselves, or what misled humans teach rather than following these instructions. . .
if you take my words to heart
and treasure my commands within you,
if you pay close attention to wisdom,
and let your mind reach for understanding,
if indeed you call out for insight,
if you ask aloud for understanding,
if you search for wisdom as if it were money
and hunt for it as if it were hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of Yahweh
and you will find the knowledge of Elohim.
Yahweh gives wisdom.
From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Trust Yahweh with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths smooth. Proverbs 2:1-6, 3:5-6 (NOG)
Below is but an example which show some of my own extensive studies/writings which have become nothing more than Biblical truth mixed with near three decades of error that can become very misleading – yet there is much important truth on the reality of our coming downfall as a civilization on the yoke of human rule that has never been for the good of human life on a planet filled with so much wickedness — that a million book library would not hold all of what is true human atrocities upon other humans in countless ways.
EFFORTS FOR SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE
However, when any seeking true knowledge takes this following scripture seriously. . .
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Matthew 7:13-14 (ESV)
We as human beings do have a choice which is either eternal life within an endless universe, or eternal death making us as if we had never been.
It’s your own decision, not mine or any others to make for you.
The whole truth with nothing but truth is fact being that humans have never been able to properly rule humans; therefore our bitter end lies ahead in ways none on this earth living in spiritual darkness are prepared for; especially all of today’s Christianity that listen, trust, and even pay all their blinded pastors, ministers, prophets, evangelists tithes for the lies of twisted scripture as in the doctrines and traditions of man being totally false in all churches and religions worldwide having congregations as the foolish virgins lacking their oil for wisdom. Matthew 25:1-13

The son of the president was driving way too fast through the early morning fog. He was rushing to the airport to catch a flight to Germany. He missed the exit to the airport. Lost control of his sports car. Smashed it into a barrier. The car flipped numerous times. When it came to a stop, the son of the president was dead. He was 33. His name was Basil al-Assad.
The first son was so beloved by his father that the president was fond of being called Abu Basil, which translates as “Father of Basil.” As heir apparent to his father, Basil’s sudden violent death was a shock to the family, and a stunning blow to the future of the nation and its people. The second son was never intended to be a leader. He was off in London, training to be an eye doctor. But following the death of Abu Basil’s first son, Fate left the younger brother as de facto next-in-line to become president of Syria. You know this man’s name: Bashar al-Assad.
Bashar, who the New York Times called a “shy young doctor” when he took over as president of Syria in July of 2000, quickly transformed from mild-mannered London-based ophthalmologist into the man you know as the genocidal monster of Damascus. A man far more cruel and ghoulish than his father. Bashar’s murderous reign raises a peculiar question: How many hundreds of thousands of Syrian people died because of that one car accident?
If you catch news of the Syrian conflict, it seems like a narrative that’s knotted and frayed, impossible to untangle. However, it’s not, if you pull on the right thread.
When the world learned that the Syrian government––under orders from President Bashar al-Assad––had (allegedly) dropped bombs of sarin gas on its own people, the news reports defied easy understanding. How could any leader do that to his own people? But if you know the story of Syria, this atrocity is sadly quite predictable. It follows a historic pattern.
To understand why Bashar al-Assad exterminates his own people, you must understand how Bashar values the people of Syria. His people. But before they were his people, they belonged to someone else. To understand the son, one must know the father. The story of the Syrian conflict — a tale of staggering losses of human life, death on a scale that avoids comprehension— is a war story that’s not easy to tell. There are the factions. The history. The layers of conflict. But, if you wish to answer the question: Why is Syria Hell on Earth––why have 320,000 innocent human beings been murdered––to answer why such atrocities occur despite history’s warnings, to get at this story properly, one must start with the father of Basil, and Bashar, and the republic of Syria.
His name is: Hafez al-Assad.
Syria is a nation born from an act of European betrayal. It was part of a great betrayal of Arabs by the British and French that traces back to one man, T.E. Lawrence. You may know him from his movie biopic, Lawrence of Arabia.
In the film, Peter O’Toole beautifully pines as he gazes out at those bleak desert landscapes, framed by the genius of David Lean. As the audience, we see how Lawrence, an eccentric Englishman, is sent to an undesirable outpost to aid the Arabs in their fight against the Turks. They’re hopelessly outmatched. But Lawrence inspires them with the promise of freedom in victory. He even fights side-by-side with the Arab rebels he commands in battle. Together, they achieve stunning victories against the Turks. But then, once the Turks are beaten, Lawrence learns that the British government, along with the French, intends to go back on its promise to the Arabs. The land they fought, bled, and died for, will not be theirs; instead, the European powers declared themselves the new imperial overlords of the Middle East. That’s a world class betrayal.
After the smoke cleared, the dust settled, and the blood dried in the killing fields of World War I, there sat the ruins of the Ottoman Empire. The Turkish empire was vast. In order to divide up their prize of the newly-liberated Middle Eastern kingdoms, the British and the French designated two mapmakers––men whose names are written in the history books as cartographers but were essentially imperial bureaucrats––and tasked them with the opportunity to draw new borders across lands and peoples they did not understand. It was called the Sykes-Picot Agreement. A lattice of borders was laid over the Middle East with all the care of a blind tailor. When they were done, the former Turkish-controlled lands of the Ottoman Empire were renamed as new nations. You know them as: Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, and Syria. (Armenia, was also freed from Turkish domination, but was given to the Russians.)
The new nations were never intended to be independent. They were intended to be colonies for the European powers. Of course the Arab natives of the region weren’t super eager to trade their old Ottoman overlords for new French ones. The people rightfully wanted nations of their own, not puppet governments, ones loyal to a foreign power. They’d fought and died to establish Arab republics. Which is why, in 1925, before the newly-minted State of Syria could celebrate its first birthday, rebel factions began a civil war against the French-mandated Syrian government. The rebellion was led by a man named Sultan Pasha al-Atrash.
The rebel leader Sultan al-Atrash and his followers were from a minority ethnic group in Syria, the Arab Druze people. They lived mostly by the southern border with Palestine. As tribal leaders, al-Atrash’s family had ruled this section of land since the 1870s. When the French replaced the Turks as the foreign power, the Druze refused to accept the new French Mandate. They made war against this so-called State of Syria. They’d just fought the Turks to be free. Why not the French? Plus, the Druze had largely been left out of the new power-sharing agreement between the city-states of Aleppo and Damascus. The revolution led by al-Atrash was immediately popular with other tribes in Syria, it spread like a wildfire of insurrection, lasting for two years. It burned across the countryside. But the Arab rebellion overlooked the obvious fact the French military had a brutal technological advantage. Remember, this is just after World War I.
So, what do you think the French military used to put down the revolts?
Imagine bi-planes flying over population centers packed with Arabs. It was an indiscriminate campaign of death from above. During one campaign the French air force bombed the civilians of Damascus, for 48 straight hours, murdering rebels and civilians alike. Indiscriminately. Which is how, inevitably, al-Atrash’s popular revolt was quashed. All Syrians were punished, guilty and innocent.
But the French took seriously the message of Arab discontent. They promised the Syrian people change. Real Arab leadership. A Syria for Syrians. Oui, Oui!
Their plan was doomed by another tribal oversight. The French largely ignored the third major ethnic group in the Syria, the Alawites, a Shiite Muslim tribal group native to the northern coast, up by the border with Turkey. The tribe had strongly objected to the French Mandate and never officially joined the State of Syria. As a minority ethnic population, just like Sultan al-Atrash and the southern Druze tribe, the Alawites had been left out of the French plans for a power-sharing agreement that saw the city-states of Aleppo and Damascus as the seats of Syrian power.
Quick note, this will pop back up later in our story: the al-Assad family are Alawites. If you’re keeping score, the Alawites are a Shiite ethnic group, or tribe, in a predominantly Sunni Muslim nation. This fun fact from the nation’s founding will forever affect the story of Syria. You may also notice another pattern and theme begin to shape Syrian history. Can you guess what it is?
Here, I’ll give you a hint: bombing civilians.
Fast-forward five years. It’s 1930. For reasons wholly political, a new new nation of Syria is declared. It’s called the Syrian Republic. At this point, Syria is becoming born-again faster than a Mississippi divorcee. And again, the people’s dream of a truly independent Arab-ruled Syria is rejected. Instead, the nation is given a new set of window dressings, put up by the latest version of a puppet French government. (The French are nothing if not stubborn.)
In 1936, there are new talks for a treaty of independence from France. The Syrian Republic––and all its various peoples––will finally be free to found a sovereign Arab nation. Free to set their own course. Free from the domination of foreign rulers. And one year later, in 1937, a free and independent Syria is established. But it’s never fully legalized. The French legislature decides not to ratify the treaty. Which leaves the young nation in limbo. It’s left as an unrecognized nation, about as legit on the world stage as a Disney family fun island.
By the way, notice something important about the years we’re talking about? There’s an external tension galloping along with Syria’s internal tensions. Remember what else was going on in the world in the late 1930s? If so, you may guess what happens next. That’s right….Boom!
World War II.
When the Nazis march on Paris and take over France in 1940, the occupied government of Vichy France is left in charge of the colonial French-mandated puppet government of Syria. Which means, for a short while, the Syrian Republic is governed by Nazi-occupied France. Essentially, the Nazis. Yet another new foreign power in charge of Syria. But then, the war in the European theater ends in the summer of ‘45, and the restored French government promises to pull out of Syria. The newly-liberated French claim they will finally allow the Arab nation to become a truly free and independent nation, no longer under rule by a foreign power. And, one year later, when the French still haven’t left Syria, new popular uprisings and protests break out.
In May of 1945, the Prime Minister of the Syrian Republic, Faris al-Khoury travels to San Francisco to attend the founding conference for the United Nations. He presents a proposal that outlines why Syria should be granted its freedom from the old League of Nations-approved French Mandate of Syria. Meanwhile, back in Syria, the French Air Force is bombing the country, to convince them to accept restored French rule. On October 24, 1945 the United Nations is born with the ratification of the UN Charter. Syria was a founding member state of the UN. With the establishment of the UN, its predecessor the League of Nations and its agreements such as the French Mandate of Syria are no longer legally binding. Which Syria declares is the perfect opportunity for their independence from their French overlords.
Based on what we know of the story of Syria, so far, how do you think the French responded to the Prime Minister al-Khoury’s pleas to the UN to recognize Syria as a free and independent Arab nation?
You know the answer: violence against innocent Syrians. The French fired artillery into the crowds of protesters. They shut off the electricity in Damascus. Their warplanes continued to indiscriminately bomb civilians.
But after they put down the latest rebellion, the French had a change of mind. Busy rebuilding France after the devastations of World War II, the French had their own headaches and hassles to deal with back home. Constantly putting down insurrections in a colony was becoming too expensive and unpopular. In 1946, the French decide to cut Syria loose. And on April 17, 1946 the last French troops leave Syria. The nation will, finally, be free and independent.
However, yet again, external politics intervene. In 1948, a new nation is born on Syria’s southern border. Its birth will reshape the entire Middle East region. And it spells immediate trouble for Syria. You know that new nation as….Israel.
To the south and west of Damascus is an area called the Golan Heights. It’s down there in the lower left corner of Syria. It was part of the old border with Syria’s southern neighbor Palestine. But when the Arab nation of Palestine was annexed and designated by the United Nations as a Jewish homeland, Syria is drawn into a fresh conflict with its new neighbor, Israel.
In 1948, Syria joined with other Arab nations, who’d vowed to crush Israel. Together they waged all-out war. And together, they lost. Spectacularly. One year after the beginning of the war, in July of 1949, Syria quit fighting their new neighbor. They were the last ones to put down their arms. Their loss against Israel was a crushing humiliation. In fact, it’s such a colossal embarrassment it leads to a coup. The first of many coups, new constitutions, and reformed cabinets. This settles into a pattern––for a decade and a half, Syria is a roiling cauldron of governmental upheaval.
At one point, in 1958, Syria attempts to join with Egypt to create a super-nation, the United Arab Republic. They dream of one giant Arab nation spreading across the Middle East, like a Muslim superpower, a union of federated republics. But, like all dreams, it’s short-lived. In less than three years the United Arab Republic crashes hard on the rocks of reality. In 1961, Syria attempts to become, once again, a newly free and independent nation. They call their new nation the Arab Republic of Syria. Which leads to a new governmental instability. In March of 1963, the Arab Socialist Ba-ath Party takes over Syria in a coup d’état.
Eventually, we arrive at an end to all this tumultuous chaos. Finally, strong Arab leadership comes to Syria. So strong that it ends the cycles of inner turmoil and constant domination by outside nations. Finally, Syria overcomes the push and pull of world events. Out of chaos comes the birth of a new and lasting order. It’s the last and most important coup.
So, who do you think led that coup?
Ten points if you said: Hafez al-Assad. AKA Abu Basil, father of Basil, Bashar, and Syria.
Hafez al-Assad made his first power moves after Syria lost to Israel in a yet another failed war. The year was 1967. Hafez al-Assad was the Minister of Defense for Syria during the Six Days War. As Col. Hafez al-Assad he mostly stayed out of the struggles for power that resulted from the loss to Israel. Of course, Hafez had opinions, but he saw himself as a military man. The sort who takes orders. As the Minister of Defense, there were many in the military who respected him. As did many politicians. His opinions shaped Syrian policy. Which meant, he also had political rivals. His key rival was the Salah Jadid, the President of Syria. After al-Assad discovered an assassination plot against him masterminded by the sitting president, he decided it was time for him to go full gangster, and just take over the whole operation.
In November of 1970, the government under President Jadid convened an Emergency National Congress. It was called to settle down the growing crisis of confidence in his leadership. Feeling threatened by his popular Minister of Defense, President Jadid was eager to sideline Hafez al-Assad. His plan was to use the Emergency National Congress to very publicly remove al-Assad from any and all official government posts he holds. It’s a common move when one fears a coup from the military. All the top leadership of Syria attended the Emergency National Congress. But Hafez al-Assad rolled up like a gangster. One who had his own army. When he arrived at the Emergency National Congress, he ordered his most loyal troops to surround the building.
Inside, the meeting goes down as planned. President Jadid stripped al-Assad of all his official government positions. Thoroughly shamed, the president and his allies feel convinced this public embarrassment will effectively sideline the former Minister of Defense. And if they’re lucky, it might salt the earth for any future political ambitions. How wrong were they? They totally failed to realize who they were dealing with. Hafez motherfucking al-Assad.
Once the Emergency National Congress was concluded, al-Assad declares himself in-charge of Syria, and confidently orders his troops to arrest President Jadid and his key supporters, and anyone who opposes his new leadership. In a very un-democratic move, al-Assad seized control of the whole damn country. His loyal soldiers didn’t even have to fire a single shot.
After Hafez al-Assad’s bloodless coup was a total success. Everyone in Syria gets the message. And they get in line. Finally, there’s some order and stability. It comes in the form of an authoritarian leader. But there is no doubt Hafez al-Assad is the undisputed leader of Syria, a stabilizing force, and would remain so for the next thirty years.
Now, to make things a little more interesting, keep in mind, the al-Assad family are Alawites. Remember they’re the same tribal group that wouldn’t originally partner with the city-states of Aleppo and Damascus way back when the newly-formed French-mandated nation of Syria was first negotiating its various independence deals with France after the end of World War I. That’s how far back these tensions go. Unresolved tensions from World War I. And the religious tension are far older than that. Since al-Assad is a member of the Shia minority group of Alawites, to maintain his tight grip on leadership, as the supreme leader of Syria, he often acted with crushing violence to suppress any uprisings in the Sunni-predominant urban centers, such as Damascus and Aleppo.
When you hear about people living in a Syrian city such as Damascus, Aleppo, or Homs, you might think they’re all the same. They’re all Syrians. You have to keep in mind these are groups of people from different historic ethnic groups. Aleppo and Damascus aren’t just cities in Syria. They were ancient, independent city-states. As Americans, we might think of them as two neighboring cities like Cleveland and Cincinnati. But it’s more like if Cleveland and Cincinnati were once fierce rivals, and then one day, some foreigners with guns and bombs came along, drew a line around them all, called it a border, and said they now live in Ohio. This is important but often overlooked aspect of life in Syrian cities. The cities are ancient rivals.
Right about now you may be wondering, “But wait, where is America in this story? When does the U.S. show up in this tale?”
At the end of World War II––much like at the end of World War I––there were two new superpowers, only this time it was America and the Soviet Union. The world entered its post-colonial period. All around the globe, new nations popped into existence. Either through war and revolution, through mandate, or sometimes through royal decree. But for three decades, nations constantly stepped free of the grip of their former colonial rulers. As the countries emerged from European rule, the new nations often had to pick, either, the U.S. or the Soviet Union as their strategic ally. In return, the two competing superpowers used the new nations as sites for their proxy wars. This is how the Middle East became a patchwork of Soviet and U.S.-alliances.
Never one to miss a trick, Hafez al-Assad exploited regional politics and Cold War politics to his benefit. With Soviet weapons, al-Assad turned Syria into a feared and respected Arab republic. One that was a worthy military rival to its southern neighbor, Israel. But that fight would have to wait, because there was a new threat spreading in the Middle East, one that pitted Muslim against Muslim. The militarized political arrangements of the Seventies –– and the hopes for peace in the Middle East, that seemed so near at hand after President Carter, Menachem Begin, and Anwar Sadat struck a peace accord between Egypt and Israel –– drew to a sudden and surprising close at the end of the decade. It was like someone had turned on all the lights in the disco. The culprit was Iran. Iran turned on the lights in the disco. But that’s what you do when your thing is Islamic fundamentalism.
The year was 1978, when a theocratic movement of students and religious clerics united to overthrow the American-backed Shah of Iran, every leader in the Middle East turned their head to watch, wondering if they could be next, as the Ayatollah urged all Muslims to reject Western powers and embrace Islamic fundamentalism, to adopt religious values as the guiding voice for politics in the region. That was a direct challenge to Hafez al-Assad, who was the secular socialist president partnered with the atheist Soviet Union, who was actively at war against Muslims in Afghanistan. Not a good look for an Arab leader when everyone’s talking theocracy. And you know al-Assad will suppress the first signs of rebellion or revolt; if he detected the faintest whiff of protest it would be met with state violence. Because, never forget, al-Assad is an Alawite, which means he is a Shia Muslim who’s the leader of a majority Sunni nation. This is what anyone would call a crisis of leadership. But Hafez al-Assad had seen it coming. Since 1976, he’d been putting down his own Islamist uprising in Syria.
After four years of him waging sectarian violence against the Syrian Sunni fundamentalists, backed by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the revolts against al-Assad metastasized into full-on assassination attempts. In 1980, there was a nearly successful attempt on al-Assad’s life that did succeed in scaring him into responding with increasingly horrific violence. The embattled president put his brother in charge of a counterinsurgency with one goal: crush the Sunni Islamist revolt.
In 1982, al-Assad ordered the siege of the city of Hama. For 27 days, the Syrian government pummeled the civilians of the city with artillery attacks and waves of aerial bombings. When they finally stopped, the Syrian government had killed 20,000–40,000 thousand of its own citizens. (The number of fatalities depends on whose count you use.) Around the world, the Hama Massacre was widely-criticized, it was a shocking atrocity. But the revolt was put down. The Hama Massacre was one of the most heinous actsan Arab government ever committed against its own people. Does it sound kinda familiar though?
Now, let’s jump forward ten years.
It’s 1991. There’s a war brewing in the Persian Gulf. America led by George Bush the Elder is about to take on Iraq in the First Gulf War.
Can you guess who secular, socialist, Soviet Union-backed, President al-Assad and his Syrian government chose as their ally in the Gulf War?
Just like he did in the Iran-Iraq War in 1980, Hafez al-Assad, leader of the socialist Ba’ath party of Syria, decides to help a foreign power fight and defeat the Ba’ath party of Iraq. He stuns the world and sides with a western power, America, and aids its attacks on a majority Muslim nation.
After the First Gulf War ends, al-Assad is still in power, and now he’s a little less worried about a fundamental Muslim revolution deposing him. The Americans are now the ones to attract their fundamentalists’ anger and incur their violence. But he’s also still feeling a bit unprotected. He was about to lose his biggest ally. That same year, in December of 1991, al-Assad and the rest of the world watched as the Soviet Union dissolved like a sugar cube in the rain.
How could al-Assad negotiate the new political reality and retain power in Syria? His options were limited. He could become an unofficial American ally, like Egypt had done. But the risk there was that it might turn him into a puppet in the eyes of his people, and spell doom for his leadership like it did for the Shah of Iran. What about the Muslim nation to his north, Turkey?
For many readers Turkey’s role in the Middle East may be something of a question mark. Like, what’s the deal with Turkey in the Middle East? Are they part of it, or not? Turkey exists at the physical divide between Europe and Asia. It’s a gateway nation, which makes it’s an impossible country to read. It’s a nation with two faces. It looks one way to Westerners. And quite different to Easterners, like Iran or Russia. And, Turkey looks quite different to the Arab world. The eyes of their culture see further back in history. To Arab eyes Turkey conjures up memories of centuries of domination by the Ottoman Empire that only ended thanks to the bloodshed of World War I. And now, a century later, memories of Turkish domination are not forgotten, or forgiven. To this day, no Arab nation wishes to see the return of a dominant Turkey. Which means, Syria, like all its other Arab neighbors, will always avoid partnering with Turkey.
So, who can a socialist, religiously moderate, secular nation like Syria partner with to help them remain a free and independent country? While also avoiding the ever-present threat of a hostile takeover by the fundamentalist Islamic wave that burns like coals all across the Middle East, always ready to flare up and start a new bonfire of resistance?
To buy himself time, all throughout the Nineties, al-Assad plays diplomacy games with the West. He makes overtures that much like Egypt did, Syria will make peace with Israel. He works high-level political calculus, and all the while al-Assad drags his feet through round after round of international negotiations and discussions about the planned peace deal and a new treaty with Israel. President Clinton and the West especially want al-Assad’s help and stamp of approval on an Israel-Palestine solution. America thinks there can one day be peace in the Middle East. This idea al-Assad dangles like bait before the West, but he never formally confirms anything. He plays the West.
Just as he has done for decades in his dealings with the West, al-Assad employs stalling tactics in his negotiations, and soon enough, he finds he has a new ally. One that’s perfectly suited to keep the West from strong-arming him, and protect him from losing power to the Islamist fundamentalist. His new ally was an old friend.
From the ashes of the Soviet Union, had emerged a new nation, one weaker than before, but bound together by a ruthless form of gangster-capitalism. They call the new nation the Russian Federation. Thanks to the fact they’re natural and historic allies, Syria partnered with the new Russia. This move kept regional powers like Iran in check. It also kept the regional powers like Saudi Arabia and Egypt, who are both majority Sunni populations, along with the gulf states of Abu Dhabi, Qatar, and Dubai, from dominating the region with the backing of the Americans. And remember, the Americans are, for the most part, just an update on the former colonial powers, the British and the French. Which, like the Turks, no Arab nation wants as their foreign ruler. Plus, by partnering with Russia, it makes arch-rivals Israel, and Turkey, think twice about ever messing with Syria. On the geopolitical chessboard it’s a brilliant move to make. It’s exactly what you expect from a political gangster genius like Hafez al-Assad: wait for the world to change.
Over the last 100 years, since, roughly, 1920, Syria has partnered with the French, the Nazi-occupied French government, the British, the Americans, the Egyptians, the Iranians, the Soviets, and most recently, the Russians. For a hundred years, they’ve struggled to be a free and independent nation that sets its own destiny. To do that, they’ve had to play global politics. Which means they’ve played the dark and dirty games of the region, riding waves of violence as they ceaselessly ebbed and flowed, ever since the Ottoman Empire crumbled at the end of World War I.
As a nation, Syria began as two dominant city-states, Damascus and Aleppo, grouped together with a number of various ethnic tribes, most notably, the two tribal states, the Alawites in the north, and the Druze in the south, all forced together by foreign map-makers and their colonial bosses. The one man to hold power in Syria, supreme leader Hafez al-Assad, from the Alawite minority, is a strongman who always felt the only way for him to hold onto power in a majority-Sunni nation, with majority-Sunni nations for neighbors, was to periodically wage indescribable acts of violence against the citizens of his own nation. To defeat outsiders he chose to kill Syrians. At this point, you could cynically call it a family tradition.
To understand why, in 2017, President Bashar al-Assad gassed his own people, and has bombed the city of Aleppo into a post-apocalyptic wasteland, you need look no further than his father. That’s his blueprint.
First, the people living in the city-state of Aleppo are not al-Assad’s people. Bashar may be the leader of Syria, but his people, his father’s people, are the Alawite tribe from the north. The people in Aleppo are Sunnis. To Bashar, he’s killing enemies, not his people. The Syrian revolution began in 2011. One of the first and largest anti-Assad protests was in the city of Hama. Bashar responded with tanks. By the time his men were done suppressing the protest, they’d killed two hundred civilians. It was called the Siege of Hama. Which mirrors his father’s Hama Massacre. This is just what the family does to hold power.
Secondly, President Bashar al-Assad is and will always be battling against the same fundamentalist Muslims his dad had to quash. In one form or another, they’re the same ones that have been trying to overthrow the Syrian government since the mid-Seventies. That’s commitment. The Muslim Brotherhood and its allies would still love to see a fundamentalist Sunni leadership in Syria. The Iran Revolutionary Guard would also love to see a fundamentalist Muslim leadership in Syria, only difference is they’d prefer it be led by Shia Muslims, not Sunnis like the Muslim Brotherhood. And, of course, there’s ISIS. Each fundamental Islamist group imagines it differently, but they share the same general goal: religious revolution. Bashar al-Assad firmly believes the only thing holding back these various flavors of Muslim fundamentalism is the constant reminder of the pain of death.
Thirdly: There’s Russia. Vladimir Putin enjoys fulfilling the role of the former Western colonial powers. For one, it’s lucrative for Russia to sell weapons and arms to Syria. The Syrian conflict also gives Russia a place to run military exercises. It’s a powerful means for Putin to project dominance on the world stage. And, most importantly, Syria is an arena for Russia to challenge the presumption that the old colonial powers––the British and the French, and the new ones, the Americans, who back the Saudi Arabians and the gulf states––are the real power in the region. Putin doesn’t agree with that assumption. The Syrian civil war is a monkey wrench the Russians can throw into Arab regional relations, and into world politics. Bashar al-Assad learned from his dad this global game-playing amongst the world powers is how one retains power in Syria. You leverage outsider power to control your own people.
Syria is not a free and independent nation. It has yet to achieve that goal. And the people pay for that failure. Millions of innocent people, unfortunate to have been born in Syria, must live in the murderous intersection of tribalism, religious and sectarian divides, proxy warfare by foreign powers, and wartime capitalism. Their lives are unfairly marred by the original sins of Turkish and subsequent European colonialism. Their supreme leader, President Bashar al-Assad, is just the latest symptom of a devastating disease. He’s playing a role not written for him, and thus he does the only thing he knows works: be as vicious and cunning as dear ol’ daddy, Hafez.
History doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme. This may be why Syria remains a bloody cluster-fuck. There’s no end in sight because no one is working on the sources of the tensions. Instead, well-meaning outsiders are overwhelmed by the endless cycles of violence, even if they’re occasionally motivated into action by the pitiful looks on the faces of helpless children. The people doomed to live in Syria lack the ability to overcome all of these various forces working against them. Survival is their best hope. Hell, they just tried to wage a revolution for their freedom from tyranny. You see where that got them. The last 7 years have been the government’s answer. Plus, it’s not like America’s going to do any serious and committed nation-building guided by the tiny hands of Donald Trump and his under-staffed and under-funded State Department. And, the Russians? Well, we all know they aren’t known for spreading democracy. There is no peaceful escape for the people from the murderous reign of Bashar al-Assad.
The only person who’s successfully held power in Syria was a socialist gangster military mastermind from an ethnic minority. Who do you think the eye doctor son who accidentally became president after his older brother died in a car crash is going to emulate? The story of his father, Hafez, sheds light on an ugly truth: for the foreseeable future, with Russia’s backing, Bashar will guarantee that Syria remains bloody as a slaughterhouse killing floor.
How many hundreds of thousands of lives were lost because of that one car accident? Big brother Basil may not have been a better president, but it’s difficult to picture he would’ve been more monstrous than his little brother Bashar. But, who knows? Basil may have tried to surpass his father’s cruelty, and he may have exceeded Bashar’s civilian-killing ways. That’s not the best question to ask. The only good and important question to ask is:
What can possibly save the people of Syria from this endless cycle of violence that’s as predictable as the sweep of the arms of a murderous clock?
In other words, when will Syria finally be a free and independent nation? Right now, America and Russia continue to bomb hospitals in Syria, as they try to defeat ISIS. Meanwhile, the Russians aim to keep Bashar al-Assad in power, while the Americans give aid to the rebels looking to depose him, the same rebels that are aligned with the latest fundamentalist Sunni Islamists, ones you know best as…Al Qaeda. That’s right. In Syria, America is uneasy partners with Al Qaeda. That’s Syria.
And that’s been Syria for the last 100 years. That’s why refugees are desperate to leave, the same ones President Trump has banned from entering the U.S. The same refugees that drown in the Mediterranean, desperate to reach Europe. The West drew the imaginary lines in the sand that created Syria. That original betrayal of Arabs by the West is the reason why Syria became hell on Earth. It’s easy to ignore the truth of that statement if you blame Bashar and Hafez al-Assad for the bloodshed we see in the news.
But now you know…that’s not the real story.
The real story is far uglier.
What follows using but only one ministry out of hundreds of thousands is an example of how they all mislead in different ways – and that includes all that live by the Torah is “THE LAW” which includes commanded love towards others, the feasts, 7th day Sabbath, clean foods, etc. — Thus much in depth truth on world deception revealing the how and why can be learned through this very informational link.
Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry affirms that love is a critical aspect of the true believer’s life. Yahweh requires that we all demonstrate love for Him and our fellow man. The two greatest commandments are: loving Yahweh with all our hearts, and loving our neighbors as ourselves, Leviticus 19:18; Deuteronomy 6:4-7; Matthew 19:19; 22:34-40; James 2:8. Love is showing an unselfish and outgoing desire for Yahweh and our fellow man. Without love, we have no hope of eternal life, 1Corinthians 13.
The words just read could be no truer, therefore only those genuine believers being Doers rather than hearers only know of the massive deception worldwide with today’s Christianity being the blindest and most disobedient of all; and that is because they don’t even follow their book of instruction being the words all have all been commanded to live by.
This link below with its source being Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry can be a very informative writing on today’s Christian disobedience, but, just as all ministries, they completely lack what all need being full truth which our Father gives only to those chosen and called out of this world as written in John 15:19.
I had 51 years of life in America on rocky roads for my worldly education. Then in 2006, I just left my entire life behind as dust in the wind on a one-way ticket to the Philippines to begin a new life, a different life, a very difficult life as a have-not, and a life through becoming totally dissociated with all worldly ways while being shaped and molded to live on faith through looking always to the Father to make straight and direct my paths while knowing that humankind, including myself, cannot direct their own steps. John 15:18-21, Proverbs 14:12, 16:25, Jeremiah 10:23.
For a better understanding of Christian hate in John 15:18-21, this link is very educational, spiritually speaking.
Throughout this past decade, I have created 16 free websites, written over one thousand lengthy blogs, and even a 474-page book “Message For This Entire Human Race” that was published in 2012 and never sold, thus seen by me as only more education in writing it.
However, to this day being over 10 years since our Father brought us together, my wife and I have never even had a stove with an oven, regular balanced meals, and added has many years of extreme hardship while having little or no income along with the nonstop fight for us in keeping our faith while dealing with the health ailments of my wife that started in 2009 being double phenomena, and followed with UTI, Myoma, Congenital Heart, and many more health issues with prayer and faith being the only weapon for our many battles in life; and because of our faith, prayer, and much patience through years of knowing that our Father has a purpose for all things, and a plan for the lives of those chosen — we endured with the reward of Mylene becoming healed from the worst of her years of on and off suffering. However, we still live our life lacking many basic needs. In addition, when my wife at 44 years of age smiles, there is the small hole in the center of her upper front teeth, then to the left 2 teeth are missing, to the right, another is missing. As for me, seven or eight have been missing for years with more nearing their end because of weak roots. There is much more that I could add regarding the way we have lived for a decade, but will not because that is not the main issues for this writing, but rather how all religious organizations sell their lies for tithes in this misled this world of believers that have never been taught the actual meaning of love towards others through righteous deeds that they will be rewarded for when calamities strike their own life. In other words, wrongdoing is the iniquity which separates believers from YHVH, thus the sad truth is that Isaiah 59 speaks vital words that are never taught.
But do you think that any Christians have ever shown any concern even though faith without works is dead as written in James 2:14-17? Other than very few with a little here and a little there through these past 10 years, today’s Christians have shown themselves as the most uncaring and very selfish individuals on this earth with all their ministers, pastors, bishops, and all religious leaders being the cause, and that is because none, no, not one knows or teach The Full Law all are to live by – thus have been leading congregations into their own coming bloodshed. So says the Bible.
So what about Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry? What is Different? Why does YRM teach congregations to tithe when it is so unbiblical that to do so is robbing Christians? Want proof from a pastor and other sources using the Bible?
When the issue comes right down to the sacred name of our eternal Father, Yahweh is incorrect with plenty of pure truth to back those words. However, because of division in all human beings which includes Christianity, none, no, not one (Psalms 14:2-3 KJV) can be told anything different from whatever their own mind has chosen – and reason is because all of this world are being led by their own human spirit which cannot properly direct the steps of man as written in Jeremiah 10:23, Proverbs 14:12, 1 Corinthians 2:13-14, etc.
At the end of this writing are some links which reveal who I am, and all that I do in this temporary life while being in wait for the millennial kingdom as a firstfruit. (Luke 12:32, Revelation 5:10)
“This tremendous choir—144,000 strong—sang a wonderful new song in front of the throne of God and before the four Living Beings and the twenty-four Elders; and no one could sing this song except those 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. For they are spiritually undefiled, pure as virgins,[a] following the Lamb wherever he goes. They have been purchased from among the men on the earth as a consecrated offering to God and the Lamb. No falsehood can be charged against them; they are blameless. (Revelation 14:3-5) TLC
One of the most confusing and totally misunderstood scripture are these words in most all English translations of the Bible;
Take note through this link that all versions have their share of flaws from human error. https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/Vy5RnZ/which-bible-version-is-best
“They have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins.”
The proper meaning of the verse above which reads “they are spiritually undefiled” means that they have taken no part in the religions, doctrines, or traditions of man scattered worldwide, and that is because they have become totally dissociated with worldly ways, beliefs, and religions. Thus keep to themselves, and look always to the Father for forgiveness and to direct their path in this life as a virgin undefiled through human beliefs and ways lacking love for others as commanded.

Little common sense is required to see just how misled and twisted our civilization has become since creation, for more outright lies, just go to church and pay the tithes for lies — or listen to government lies worldwide, or for even more lies, listen to the bought and controlled media that feeds nothing but lies everywhere on this earth. Want truth? Just ask the father of lies all believe, especially today’s Christianity that has been so misled that their narrow minds have no room for rough truth — but rather smooth lies.
View what follows, then think. Think what corrupt government has been doing to America very many decades. Think on religious deception worldwide according to the Bible believers don’t believe. Think what will happen when massive inflation strikes. Think of what the coming years of affliction will be like. Think about the signs of the times for America and this world in Matthew 24:4-14
Fight against Maduro turns dirty with faeces-filled bottles dubbed ‘Poopootov cocktails’
The fight against President Nicolas Maduro’s government is getting increasingly dirty as protesters fling bottles and bags of human excrement at riot police officers in Caracas. The latest weapon in the fight for democracy in Venezuela is the “Poopootov cocktail” – a play on the Molotov cocktail.
Soldiers and riot police fired tear gas and water cannons as thousands of opposition supporters blocked the main highway through Caracas on Wednesday (10 May) in what was dubbed the “Sh*t March”. “They have gas; we have excrement,” reads an image floating around social media to advertise the demonstration.
Messages have been going viral on Venezuelan WhatsApp groups giving step-by-step instructions and advice on putting together the Poopootov cocktails. Some insist on avoiding glass containers to ensure that the projectiles only humiliate troops rather than injure them.
Some opposition sympathisers are appalled at the use of faeces, both animal and human, calling it an unsanitary and inappropriate tactic even in the face of a government they despise. Many note that throwing faeces could increase cases of infectious diseases which are soaring due to the lack of medicine as well as basic cleaning materials such as soaps and disinfectant.
The government accused the opposition of breaking international treaties on biological and chemical weapons by throwing faeces.
While some demonstrators are protesting peacefully, others are getting increasingly tooled-up, throwing rocks, petrol bombs and fireworks at security forces.
At least 39 people have died in the unrest since early April, including protesters, government sympathisers, bystanders, and security forces. Hundreds have also been hurt and arrested. Maduro claims foes are seeking a coup with US encouragement.
The state prosecutor’s office said 27-year-old Miguel Castillo was killed during Wednesday’s protests in Caracas, without giving details. Motorbike taxi driver Anderson Dugarte, 32, died on Wednesday in the Andean city of Merida after being injured in a protest. Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said in comments broadcast by state television that Dugarte was killed by a sniper linked to the opposition’s Democratic Unity coalition.
