Why Is Syria Hell on Earth? Here’s the Ugly but True Answer…

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

Hafez al-Assad

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.

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.

*record scratch*

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

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?”


Hafez al-Assad and President Jimmy Carter

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.

Hafez al-Assad and Saddam Hussein in happier days

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.

LOVE

 

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.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/the-kingdom-of-satan-is-earth/

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, and more truth that only those genuine believers know is 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 better understanding of Christian hate in John 15:18-21, this link is very educational, spiritually speaking.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/12/22/how-christians-lacking-spiritual-knowledge-hate-god/

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; therefore 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 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. 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?

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/Dx3Wxv/tithing-is-unscriptural-under-the-new-covenant

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.

PURPOSE OF THE UNIVERSE

Since each light-year is 5.879 trillion miles, the diameter of the visible universe is 546 billion trillion that in pure truth when put into the form of distance in miles is so massive that we with human minds can’t even begin to fully put into proper perspective the magnitude of the proportion; and when it comes right down to the fact that the distance you just read is all that man can thus far calculate, that means what goes beyond for eternity makes that huge number to be as nothing; and that is but one of the countless reasons full knowledge of YHVH is unsearchable.

How many people in America and worldwide actually pay attention to what has been happening all around them for many decades while always getting worse in every way with nothing positive for the good of civilization?

How many people in our civilization see no wrong?

How many people feel secure in their own way?

How many people put their trust in humankind through spoken words, beliefs, governments, tradition, religion and education?

How many people actually ignore what has been happening in horrible ways to hundreds of millions in other areas of this world because it is not them being hungry, homeless, used as sex or labor slaves, tortured, raped, beaten, and killed in many ways including genocide chemical attacks on the innocent?

How many human beings can spiritually understand these two images while knowing what they represent?

Let us look again.

What some may be aware of, none worldly really understand as made perfectly clear in Job 15:15-16, Psalms 14:2-3, Revelation 12:9, etc.

100_6636 Isaiah 45:18-20

How many that call themselves Christian, Jew or Israelite understand and believe these following words of scripture?

Isaiah 45 001Isaiah 45:7

I am not here to preach truths of the gospel this world will not believe, in fact, I can actually understand why this world is overloaded with atheists, agnostics, and millions of other beliefs when individually looked at being why our civilization has always been nothing but division through wars and hate. However, there is a reason for all things. How much thought have you ever really given on how many beliefs there actually is when there is only one most high Elohim?

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/XL6Xml/how_could_an_entire_human_race_actually_be_deceived

Ezekiel 5:15, 11, 13, 8, Deuteronomy 31:29, Amos 9:8-10 – These few verses out of many throughout the word show the evil our creator is going to pour upon humanity which includes all misled Christians, Jews and every worldly person on this planet that know not Elohim in spirit and truth while living in their own self-righteous blindness because they know all things – except truth because the father of lies is everyone’s God.

A Different View

If you were a creator that has always been everywhere with no time, no limits, nothing not known, and total power over the entire endless universe, and then created what would become a human race that would through time populate the endless universe throughout eternity, would not it have to a properly led civilization having not the sin as this world always has had?

Below is an excerpt from one of my many writings with a brief description of our human race ruled by humans. . .

Massive Unstable Marriages

Massive Rapes

Massive Child abuse

Massive Murder

Massive Greed

Massive STD

Massive Slavery

Massive Unjust, Unrighteous, Unfair Human Race because of human rule, human religions, and the misleading psychological input from the God of this world.

Massive Genocide That Has Murdered Near 300,000,000 Innocent Humans That Have Done No Wrong — And Your Time Is Coming To Join The Dead.

https://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/RM1.RINGS.OF.TEARS.HTM

The actual facts on human corruption worldwide are so massive when everything is considered, that a million book library would be required in getting out truth on the way humanity has always pathetically ruled itself; therefore we as human beings have finally reached the beginning of our end under ignorant worthless self-rule making way for the millennial Kingdom of YHVH ruled by Yeshua and His firstfruits (Revelation 5:10) with properly enforced laws based on love, righteousness, obedience, what is good, healthy, happy, and stable for all humanity. An example of enforcing the law with punishment in (Zechariah 14:16-19).

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/07/18/father-of-lies-all-believe-2/

So why has Yehovah Elohim wrongly called God allowed 6000 years of human rule that has always been more unstable than water? Why all the coming affliction followed with great tribulation?

Because when we talk about the eternal universe that was created to become inhabited, and when we talk about a creator that our human 1000 years is a day to, not even a week has gone by in his preparation of gathering His firstfruits that have become worthy to be rulers of the coming millennial kingdom and a part of His eternal government.

These following words from scripture describe who I am, how I live, and where I am going to be concerning the eternal kingdom:

“If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. He raises up the poor out of the dust and lifts up the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with nobles and inherit the throne of glory. For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and He has set the world upon them. (John 15:19, 1 Samuel 2:8) (AMPC)

Let’s look at more scripture and think again.

Proverbs 16:25 with Colossians 3:25 below and Jeremiah 10:23-25

100_8106

Whether it be Christian congregations or people of any belief, whatever they choose to believe is right comes through psychological input with mislead by the father of lies who is the God of this world, therefore no human mind, when it is alone without the spirit of our creator, can direct their own steps in this life.  (Jeremiah 6:19) (KJV)

100_8075

Lamentations 4:13-14

isaiah-001

Do you have any idea whatsoever how vitally important those words just read from Isaiah 59 really are? Read these following verses to know what iniquity actually is. . .

Psalms 66:18, Psalms 32:5

Can you grasp the spiritual understanding on the verses just read? We all as genuine believers are to live by every word as doers, not hearers deceiving our own selves as a sluggard. So if we have iniquity through living by our own will and direction which is not living by the word as instructed in Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4, and Luke 4:4, that means we are of this world taking part in unwritten pagan holidays, wrong day sabbaths, believing the law was nailed to the cross, congregations in the buildings of man falsely called churches where Satan dwells and showing no love for others through good works/deed as commanded are all forms of the iniquity

which have separated this world of believers from whom their speech claims to love, rather than walking their commanded walk in Colossians chapter 3.

Psalms 12:6, 18:30, 33:4, 119:140, Proverbs 30:5

Is not every word of our Creator true when studied to show thyself approved? And that means finding mistranslations, wrongly taught names such as Jesus Christ, God, and more. Also being that all versions of the Bible have their own many flaws, why our creator is against all shepherds, priests, ministers, prophets, evangelists, and every religious title that has blinded their congregation or followers worldwide in ways they know not or will not believe because they trust in themselves rather than instruction with warning from our creator.

Do you think any religious shepherd will teach all the scripture against themselves and how Yehovah views congregations with great anger? This link below has about 200 pages based on scripture against shepherds never taught, and how to gain our Fathers mercy for his help and protection during these perilous times almost upon us all.

COMING COLLAPSE UPDATE FOR AMERICA

SHARE THIS FOR THE GOOD OF OTHERS, BECAUSE WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR ALL HUMANITY CANNOT BE CHANGED

I’ve posted a couple of articles that have a loose connection to the ongoing push off the economic cliff. The question is continually asked “Where’s the collapse?” Of course it is only those who are still fully employed and have money in the bank that ask that. The 95 million working age people who do not have full time jobs don’t need to ask, nor do those 45% of people paying at least 50% of their income on credit card debt.

Now comes Puerto Rico. They are about to declare bankruptcy. One might say that they don’t live in Puerto Rico, so what do they care? When any entity defaults on a 73 billion dollar debt, it doesn’t happen in a vacuum. There are many funds invested in that debt. At the very least those funds will encounter loses that will be passed down to individual investors. At the worst, some of those funds may themselves go bankrupt, thus sucking down individuals. This also may start a cascade involving others.

The third article covers a theory on the many Trump flip flops. In that article the author theorizes that Trump may be anticipating a much larger event, possibly an economic collapse.

Who knows about that, but there can be no doubt that it is coming. The only question is when. We are in uncharted territory. The whole world is involved in this economic Ponzi scheme, so it is taking longer than one would think, but that is countered by the prospect that the whole world will be in this depression. The bottom line is, there is nothing Trump or anyone else can do to stop this. All they can do is to keep trying to plug the leaks as fast as they come until it no longer can be done. My advice has not changed. Stock up — food, water filtration, medical supplies, guns and ammunition and whatever else you can think of that you need to carry in your day to day life.

It is better to be 10 years early than one day late.

Bruce                                     New World Order News

Puerto Rico is set to file the largest public sector bankruptcy in history after vulture capitalist hedge funds that bought big pieces of the island’s $73 billion in defaulted debt for pennies-on the-dollar refused to take $24 billion haircut.

The U.S. territory made its last-ditch offer to try to avoid a May 1 bankruptcy filing, but failed to negotiate a financial restructuring that would force creditors to take a 23 percent loss on their general obligation bonds and a 42 percent loss on their Cofina sales-tax-backed debt, according to EMMA, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board website.

45% Of Americans Spend Up To Half Their Income Repaying Credit Card Debts

First, roughly 50% of Americans have debt balances, excluding mortgages mind you, of over $25,000, with the average person owing over $37,000, versus a median personal income of just over $30,000. 

The real reasons why Trump has flipped on his campaign promises

Back in December of 2016 I wrote an article titled Trump Is Exactly Where The Elites Want Him, which I think was very difficult for a large part of the liberty movement to read and accept. In that article I outlined the future of the Trump presidency; a future dominated by Washington insiders, Goldman Sachs internationalists and Neo-Con warmongers. Trump, at the very onset of his administration, broke one of his most important campaign promises — to “drain the swamp.” Instead, he filled his cabinet with all of the same swamp creatures he originally attacked; the same swamp creatures Hillary Clinton was notorious for serving.

 ***

A major war is brewing strongly regarding Korea and other nations as written signs of the times in Matthew 24 and many other books in the Bible that will take millions of lives. Then shall be great famine in America and worldwide filled with believers and people everywhere turning against each other, violence, hate, looting, killing, rape, child abuse, earthquakes, and many other calamities through the great 31/2 year affliction coming from all direction upon people in America and this entire world civilization being totally unprepared mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Let’s read what the EXP version says on the subject of what you just read:

Jesus Yeshua answered, “·Be careful [Watch out] that no one ·fools [misleads; deceives] you. Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the ·Christ [meaning they represent the Messiah],’ and they will ·fool [mislead; deceive] many people. You will hear about wars and ·stories of wars that are coming [rumors/reports of wars], but don’t be ·afraid [alarmed]. These things must happen ·before the end comes [or but that is not yet the end]. Nations will ·fight [L rise up] against other nations, and kingdoms against other kingdoms. There will be ·times when there is no food for people to eat [famines], and there will be earthquakes in ·different [various] places. All these things are ·like the first pains when something new is about to be born [L the beginning of the birth pains].

“Then people will arrest you, hand you over to be ·hurt [persecuted; tortured], and kill you. ·They [The world; L All nations] will hate you because ·you believe in me [you follow me; L of my name]. At that time, many will ·lose their faith [turn/fall away], and they will ·turn against [betray] each other and hate each other. Many false prophets will ·come [appear; arise] and ·cause many people to believe lies [deceive many]. There will be more and more ·evil [sin; lawlessness] in the world, so ·most people will stop showing their love for each other [L the love of many/most will grow cold]. Matthew 24:4-13 (EXB)

Today’s misled Christianity will be amongst those worldwide that take part in the celebration and giving of gifts when the two witnesses in Revelation 11 have been killed by the antichrist.

As for this world Christian Israelites that remained genuine through the entire affliction.

“But those people who ·keep their faith [endure; stand firm; persevere] until the end will be saved. ·The Good News [This Gospel] about God’s kingdom will be preached in all the world, [L as a testimony] to every nation. Then the end will come. Matthew 24:14

Let’s now gain a better and more clear explanation of who the two witnesses really are rather than all the false misleading belief Satan’s ministers spread worldwide.

“These two witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth [C reminiscent of Zerubbabel and Joshua whom God used to build the second temple in spite of opposition; Zech. 4:2–6]. And if anyone ·tries [wants] to ·hurt [harm; damage] them, fire comes from their mouths and ·kills [consumes; devours] their enemies [Jer. 5:14]. And if anyone ·tries [wants] to ·hurt [harm; damage] them in whatever way, in that same way that person ·will [or must] die. These witnesses have the ·power [authority] to ·stop the sky [close the heavens] from raining during the time they are prophesying [1 Kin. 17:1]. And they have ·power [authority] to make the waters become blood [8:816:3–4Ex. 7:17–21], and they have ·power [authority] to send every kind of ·trouble [plague] to the earth as many times as they want.

When the two witnesses have finished ·telling their message [giving their witness/testimony], the beast [C probably the Antichrist; 13:117:8Dan. 7] that comes up from the ·bottomless pit [Abyss; 9:1] will fight a war against them. He will ·defeat [conquer] them and kill them. The ·bodies [corpses] of the two witnesses will lie in the ·street [public square; C to be left unburied as a sign of disdain] of the great city where the Lord was ·killed [L crucified; C Jerusalem, perhaps here symbolic of the world’s opposition to God]. ·This city is named Sodom and Egypt, which has a spiritual meaning [L …which is figuratively/symbolically/spiritually called Sodom and Egypt; C Jerusalem is symbolically named after places judged by God for wickedness (Sodom/America) and for oppressing God’s people (Egypt); Gen. 19Ex. 7—12]. Those from every race of people, tribe, language, and nation will look at the bodies of the two witnesses [the 144,000 are the two witnesses] for three and one-half days, and they will ·refuse to bury them [L not let them be placed in a tomb]. People who live on the earth will rejoice and ·be happy [celebrate] because these two are dead. They will send each other gifts, because these two prophets brought much ·suffering [torment] to those who live on the earth.

But after [L the] three and one-half days, ·Elohim put the breath of life into the two prophets again [L a breath/spirit of life from God entered them; Gen. 2:7]. They stood on their feet, and everyone who saw them became very afraid. Then the two prophets heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Come up here!” And they went up into heaven in a cloud as their enemies watched.

In the same hour there was a ·great [violent] earthquake, and a tenth of the city ·was destroyed [collapsed; L fell]. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and those who did not die were very afraid and gave glory to the Elohim of heaven [Ezek. 38:19–20Zech. 14:4].

The second ·trouble [L woe] is finished. ·Pay attention [Look; T Behold]: The third ·trouble [L woe] is coming ·soon [quickly; 8:13]. Revelation 11:4:14

What is the true identity of the two witnesses?

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/10/17/the-two-witnesses-of-revelation-2/

I have been warning many for years through my 16 websites, published book, and over one thousand lengthy writings based on scripture and this world’s reality on what is coming with reason why, yet none, no, not one really cares about today’s atrocities upon all civilization from the yoke of incapable human rule, nor hear truth on why these things must be. Psalms 14:2-3

I have written so very many times on how those in affliction that have done well towards others shall receive basic necessities according to the same measure in their help for others in need when they had the means – but for those living selfishly, coveting worldly and material items that shall perish, there will be no mercy, but rather harsh judgment on this earth, and in the millennial resurrection for the sheep and goats of greed.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/09/03/the-millennial-resurrections/

Because all people believe only what they choose, all that can be done is to deliver a message few will hear just as Ezekiel chapter 2; therefore, those looking only above for direction while being no part of worldly ways just accept difficult circumstance in this life along with false brethren and never any help for just basic needs like a good meal, stove, or small plot of land for a bamboo hut to give my wife and I some needed peace, rest, and pleasure being away from the noise of any populated area.

Below through one link sharing a little on who I also contain some other links on what is happening on this earth accompanied with the way of spiritual education that I have been seeking, working at, and learning from our creator through being dissociated with all human philosophy, beliefs, religions, governments, and human education of this world being totally blind to the only true source being the spiritual input coming from not of this world, but rather the 3rd heaven where Yehovah Elohim is on His throne of eternity with Yeshua by His side.

WORDS FROM A BELIEVER TO AN ATHEIST

No name, even though we have only had somewhat occasional conversation with opposite views through years past, and being you don’t believe in God without evidence, and I do through faith — I always saw good in you, whereas this world of so-called Christians talking so much religious talk only show themselves not good in the eyes of Yehovah through their actions, which my wife and I have experienced for 10 years, of being extremely selfish — and for the good being few, these words are not for because our Father knows His sheep rather than goats — yet you have just greatly helped my wife and I via Paypal because months ago we ran out of what I like being just good brand name peanut butter and jelly imported from America that costs more than local brands I don’t like.
And what is more interesting is that we have not even talked for a good while, yet still have remained as silent friends that read what each other posts here in facebook.
So thank you so very much from myself and Mylene because any help at all means much to us both; and I only put this on you page to show this world of Christianity that even some Atheists have a heart that pleases our creator regardless of what they may believe; and that is because people with good and righteous hearts intent are not as this world of religious hypocrites showing true colors they shall be judged by.

GREED RULES HUMANITY

The Holy Bible is a Book with Instruction that Few Follow.

If there are ·poor [needy] among ·you [your relatives; or your countrymen; your brothers], in one of the ·towns [gates] of the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be ·selfish [hard-hearted] or ·greedy[tight-fisted] toward them [Prov. 28:27; 29:7, 14].

You will ·see trouble in my house. No matter what good things happen to Israel, [or watch with envy/distress/greedy eyes on all the prosperity I pour out on Israel. But] there will never be an old ·man[person] in your family [22:11–23].

But Samuel’s sons did not ·live as he did [L walk/follow in his ways]. They ·tried to get money dishonestly [were greedy; wandered after money], and they accepted ·money secretly [bribes] ·to make wrong judgments[and perverted justice/made biased decisions].

They ·brag [boast] about the ·things they want [cravings/desires of their soul]. ·They bless the greedy but [or The greedy curse and] ·hate [reject] the Lord.

They ·became greedy for food [developed deep cravings] in the ·desert [wilderness; Num. 11], and they tested God ·there [in desolate places; Ex. 17:7].

All greedy people end up this way; ·greed kills selfish people [they take their own lives].

·Greedy people [Those who get unjust gain] bring trouble to their ·families [L house], but the person who ·can’t be paid to do wrong [L hates gifts/bribes] will live.

Don’t ·be greedy [long] for his fine foods, because that food might be ·a trick [false; deceptive].

A greedy person ·causes trouble [stirs up conflict], but the one who trusts the Lord will ·succeed [escape].

“·Greed [The leech] has two daughters named ‘Give’ and ‘Give.’ There are three things that are never satisfied, really four that never say, ‘I’ve had enough!’:

They are like ·hungry [greedy; ravenous] dogs that are never satisfied. They are like shepherds who ·don’t know what they are doing [lack understanding; are ignorant; Ezek. 34:2–3]. They all have gone their own way; ·all they want to do is satisfy themselves [each seeks their own gain/profit].

I was angry because ·they were dishonest in order to make money [of their sinful greed]. I punished them and ·turned away from them [hid my face] in anger, but they ·continued to do evil [turned away in the way of their heart].

“Everyone, from the least important to the greatest, is greedy for ·money [unjust gain]. Even the prophets and priests all ·tell lies [act falsely; are deceptive].

So then, [look; behold] I ·used my power [stretched out my hand] against you and ·took away some of your land [reduced your boundaries; or cut off your rations]. I ·let you be defeated by [delivered you to the greed/desire of] ·those who hate you [your enemies], the Philistine ·women [daughters], who were ashamed of your ·evil ways [obscene/lewd behavior; even the pagan Philistines were shocked at Israel’s outrageous sins].

greed, ·evil actions [wickedness], ·lying [deceit], ·doing sinful things [indecency; lust; lewdness], ·jealousy [envy;evil eye], ·speaking evil of others [slander; blasphemy], pride, and foolish living.

The Lord said to him, “You Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are full of ·greed [extortion; robbery] and ·evil [wickedness].

Then Jesus said to them, “Be careful and guard against all kinds of greed. Life ·is not measured by [does not consist of] how much one owns.”

They are filled with every kind of ·sin [unrighteousness; injustice], ·evil [wickedness], ·selfishness [greed], and ·hatred [evil; malice; depravity]. They are full of ·jealousy [envy], murder, ·fighting [strife; quarreling], ·lying [deceit; treachery], and ·thinking the worst about each other [spite; maliciousness]. They are gossips

But I did not [at all] mean you should not associate with those of this world who sin sexually, or with the greedy, or ·robbers [or swindlers], or those who worship idols. To get away from them you would have to leave this world.

I am writing to tell you that you must not associate with those who call themselves ·believers in Christ [a brother or sister] but who sin sexually, or are greedy, or worship idols, or ·abuse others with words [slander], or get drunk, or ·cheat [swindle] people. Do not even eat with people like that.

·Surely [Don’t…?] you know that the ·people who do wrong [unrighteous; wicked; unjust] will not inherit God’s kingdom. Do not be ·fooled [deceived]. Those who sin sexually, worship idols, take part in adultery, those who are ·male prostitutes [or passive homosexual partners], or ·men who have sexual relations with other men [or active homosexual partners], those who steal, are greedy, get drunk, ·lie about others [slander others; use abusive language], or ·rob [swindle]—these people will not inherit God’s kingdom.

They have lost ·all feeling of shame [or any sense of right and wrong; all feeling/sensitivity], and they ·use their lives for doing evil [abandon themselves to indecency/depravity]. They ·continually want to do [or greedily pursue] all kinds of ·evil [impurity].

But there must be ·no [no hint/mention/rumor of] sexual sin among you, or any kind of ·evil [impurity] or greed. Those things are not ·right [proper; fitting] for God’s holy people.

[For] You can be sure of this: No one will have a ·place [inheritance] in the kingdom of Christ and of God who sins sexually, or does ·evil [impure] things, or is greedy. Anyone who is greedy is ·serving a false god [an idolater].

So put all ·evil [earthly; worldly] things ·out of your life [to death]: sexual sinning, ·doing evil [impurity; defilement], ·letting evil thoughts control you [lust; passion], ·wanting things that are evil [selfish desires], and greed, which is ·serving a false god [idolatry].

You know that we never ·tried to influence you by saying nice things about you [came with words of flattery]. ·We were not trying to get your money; we had no selfishness to hide from you […nor with hidden motives of greed]. God ·knows that this is true [is (our) witness].

He must not drink too much wine or ·like to fight [be violent/a troublemaker], but rather be gentle and ·peaceable [not quarrelsome/contentious], not ·loving money [avaricious; greedy].

[ Deacons in the Church ] In the same way, deacons must be ·respected by others [dignified], not ·saying things they do not mean [insincere; two-faced; deceitful]. They must not drink too much wine or ·try to get rich by cheating others [be greedy for money/profit].

As God’s ·managers [stewards], overseers [probably the same church office as elder; 1 Tim. 3:1, 6, 7; 5:17]must be ·innocent of wrongdoing [blameless], ·unselfish[not arrogant/self-willed], not ·quick-tempered [easily angered]. They must not ·drink too much wine [be a drunkard], ·like to fight [be violent/a brawler], or ·try to get rich by cheating others [be greedy for gain/dishonest in business].

Shepherd [tend] God’s flock [John 21:15–19], ·for whom you are responsible [which is under your care]. ·Watch over [Oversee] them because you want to, not because you are forced. That is how God wants it. Do it because you are ·happy [eager] to serve, not because ·you want money [of greed].

Every time they look at a woman they want her [They have eyes full of adultery], and ·their desire for sin is never satisfied [or they never stop sinning]. They ·lead weak people into the trap of sin [ensnare/entice/lure unstable people/souls], and they have ·taught[exercised; trained] their hearts to be greedy. ·God will punish them [Accursed children; under God’s curse]!

·It will be terrible for them [Woe to them!]. They have followed the way of Cain [who murdered his brother Abel; Gen. 4], and ·for money [because of greed; for wages] they have ·given themselves [poured themselves out] to doing the ·wrong [error] that Balaam did [Num. 22—24; 2 Pet. 2:15–16]. ·They have rebelled against God as Korah did, and like Korah, they surely will be destroyed [In the rebellion of Korah, they were destroyed; Num. 16].

IS THERE ANY COMPASSION TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE?

Our Serious Plea

Being here in the Philippines for over 10 years without income has not been an easy life; therefore I made another attempt towards gaining Social Security, and that is because on June 22, I will be 62.

Well, I heard back from the U.S. Embassy being what sounded pretty simple. Just open a bank account for direct deposit, email her the forms by 4/13/2017 — and all should be set.

What happened at one bank, than another, was only many problems with cost, time, and what cannot I possibly do without some help.

BDO bank only asks for 3000 peso deposit to open account; however, they need two forms of valid ID, and ‘ACR’ which is Alien Certificate Registration that is not something easy for me to acquire here in Cotabato through traveling into a very dangerous area for foreigners because of all the kidnappings, asking for ransom, and beheadings. Then added are all the forms to fill out requiring more information than I can supply, and another 500 peso.

All that I have for identification is only my two years expired passport with nothing more, and to renew my passport takes 5000 peso, and about 3 weeks. When it comes to getting another ID, one is a senior citizen ID that my wife is getting in the town where we live that costs 500 peso more, and then there is more added difficulties for an American that my wife is working on.

The other bank, BPI, is a little simpler because they don’t ask for the ACR like BDO. But in the same way two valid ID’S are needed — and thus far Mylene is working on a way to get me another. The other item different about BPI is they want a much larger deposit to open a new account being 5000 pesos, or about $100.

Just for us to reach a point in our life where we need no more help has been very hard because everything costs – thus my wife has been borrowing, borrowing, and now she will use the only item we have, being our Jeep that has needed repair for a year to pawn — but with so many other problems, we just don’t have enough for getting my needed and wanted Social Security on the right track.

Added is the fact being how shaky the U.S. economy really is, in fact so unstable with a 20 trillion debt that can never be paid – one hundred million Americans unemployed, and major retailers such as Sears, Macy’s, Kmart, and many more shutting down stores nationwide while adding many more to unemployment; therefore I never really expected America to last this long before collapse.

Maybe, just maybe someone will help us now so that we can get to the point where we need no more help.

If the very simple law of love existed, and was enforced via plus or minus blessing, or in other words do right and receive all needed, or do wrong to receive punishment, (Zechariah 14:16-19) our civilized world would become continually progressive for the good of all humankind through living healthy, active, happy lives while always learning more; and that is because the universe was created to become inhabited – and being what is eternal has no end, what we can learn and experience also has no end. So first comes the millennial kingdom for 1000 years of teaching and purifying our human race — and then YHVH’s eternal kingdom when He will actually dwell with inhabitants having no sin.

However, being earth is Satan’s kingdom, there is no good worldwide for the benefit of our entire population, but rather only misleading lies in every direction since the beginning when Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree which caused all humanity to be born in sin; however, all shall be changed when Satan’s end comes, and the millennial kingdom is put in place for the purpose of bringing only what is good, right, clean, pure, and true upon what shall become a never ending civilization expanding through the eternal universe with no sin, no lies, no murders, no diseases, no rape, no women beaters, no child abuse, no same sex relationships, no violence, no torture, no slavery, no drugs, no drunkards, no more human governments, no human led religions, and only one belief in the only true YHVH Elohim, and Yeshua who all things were created through.

I did have one job back in October-November shown in the pictures that paid 300 peso a day which equals $6, but sadly it did not last.

Now I get emails daily from totaljobs and others that offer many welding positions in Plymouth England–thus, when Social Security does fail, and it will, I would go soon as possible if my passport was in order, I have travel funds, and a way to live inexpensive as just rent a room so I could save for 6 months to a year and get back to my wife.

We all have different views on today’s reality, but when our world and civilization has been viewed as it truly is, nothing could be more disgusting than what pathetic human rule has done to our entire world population that can be viewed through the 16 free websites I have been creating since 2009.
