NEWS UPDATE! 8 December 2017 This morning more than 14 Red Alerts sounded signaling multiple rocket attacks on Israel.

14 Rockets launched from JUDENREIN* Gaza against Israel ...
Approximately 3,000 Arab Palestinians attacked Israeli security forces at some 30 locations across Judea and Samaria and the Gaza Strip AFTER Friday "PRAYERS," reportedly to demonstrate anger over US President Donald Trump’s declared recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

This is the prevailing world view—that President Trump incited the violence…
Please don’t be deceived. America officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in October 1995 when Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act. (We have not abided by the act, which calls for the relocation of our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, however, to appease the terrorist regimes … and protect our Middle East oil interests.

The appeasement hasn’t worked.
The current violence from Arab terrorists is NOT the U.S. Administration’s fault. There has NEVER been peace from the Arabs in spite of Israel ceding land and capitulating to their demands over and over again.

Gaza is a perfect example—ALL JEWS CLEARED OUT of GAZA, and with Arab autonomy, they elected HAMAS (the world's foremost terrorist regime) as their government, and turned Gaza into a militarized zone, exclusively dedicated to the annihilation of Israel. They used the extraordinary amount of "humanitarian aide" (FAR more than any truly needy nation of huge populations) into building up armaments and creating sophisticated tunnels to attack Israel, RATHER than assisting humanitarian needs. This has been very effective against Israel on another front: While they misuse humanitarian aide funds, they decry the desperate state of the "needy" Gaza Arabs and point the finger at Israel! Tragically, the world believes it.
We must be discerning and seek truth — or we, too, will be deceived.
Hamas has called for a THIRD INTIFADA to begin. Appeasement NEVER works. It only serves to embolden the violent aggressor. Did we not learn that from WWII?
Pray for the shalom, the well-being, the wholeness, of Jerusalem! They shall prosper that love her.
Psalm 122:6
*Judenrein: Free of any Jews--the goal of Hitler and the Third Reich for Europe. WHY would we support such racism?!

horror vacui"
Jacob then took his wives, Rachel and Leah, their two female servants, his eleven sons, and crossed over the brook called Jabbok that leads into the Jordan. It is midway between the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea.

Jacob crossed over the Jabbok (which in Hebrew means “emptying”). Jacob then emptied himself, sending his family and all that he had on ahead, and remained the night alone with God.
Attributed to Aristotle, "horror vacui, Nature abhors a vacuum,” is an idiomatic phrase expressing a physics theory that, like a woman’s purse, any empty space will inevitably be filled.
The Creator, being the designer of the physical laws that rule the universe, fashioned them exquisitely to illustrate much of His spiritual truth. Brilliant redundancy.
Do you desire to be filled with God’s power? Empty yourself … of self.
Do you desire to be filled with His righteousness? Cease from filling your “self” with unrighteousness…

Although proponents of the Pauli Exclusion Principle will argue that quantum physics postulates an exception to this rule, generally speaking, two things cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Hence, to be filled, one must first be emptied… The Master is ever-present.

The afflicted will eat and be satisfied;
Those who seek Him will praise the LORD.
Let your heart live forever!
Psalm 22:26

Abraham is greatly distressed as he loves Ishmael. However, God speaks to Abraham and tells him that Sarah is right—and reiterates that it is through Isaac that Abraham’s descendants will be named. God also comforted Abraham with the promise that Ishmael would survive and be a great a nation because he is Abraham’s son.
vs. 22-34 Abraham finds he must confront Abimelech over a well in Be’er Sheva which had been seized by Abimelech’s servants. They once again come to an amicable agreement, with Abraham sealing the deal with seven ewe lambs. To this day, it is called Be’er Sheva, which means, “well of the sevenfold oath” for the seven ewe lambs.

There, Abraham planted a tamarisk tree,
and “called on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.”

Meaning, in that place, Abraham not only planted a physical tree, he propagated trees of righteousness, as he proclaimed Adonai, God of Heaven and earth! #Vayera #Parsha #Torah #Abraham

The concept of justice to this day is possibly considered the highest virtue to the Jewish People.

Verse 25 is seen as an “epochal sentence of the Bible,” resounding throughout all time as a guiding beacon. Justice is considered as the main pillar of God’s Throne, ethics not only being a Divine quality of God and man, but the basis for all others.

Hear the voice of the prophets:
“But let justice roll down like waters And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” (Amos 5:24)
“He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8)
“...the law is ignored And justice is never upheld. For the wicked surround the righteous; Therefore justice comes out perverted.” (Habakkuk 1:4)
“Thus has the LORD of hosts said, ‘ Dispense true justice and practice kindness and compassion each to his brother...” (Zechariah 7:9)
Abraham humbly interceded on behalf of the possible righteous that may inhabit Sodom and Gomorrah from fifty souls down to ten. “Oh may the Lord not be angry, and I shall speak only this once; suppose ten are found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it on account of the ten.”

Of course Adonai knew there would not be even ten righteous within these wicked cities, but allowed Abraham his noble exercise ... and preserves this very precious exchange for us! For in it we also see our own nature at times, moved to compassion for those who are in the midst of destruction of their own design.

Our ability to see the Hand of God in others’ lives is all too often so myopic.
