Israel in a readied pre all out war stance!

Even in travels I have been keeping an eye on Israel as I pray for Jerusalem and was made aware that there were six anti Israel ships heading in to Gaza with what was being said to be supplies for the Hamas. The bay is under a blockade and has been for three years by Israel so more weapons and especially not weapons of a nuclear caliber would not reach Gaza where Israeli's enemies, the Hamas reside. However the tunnels in the south of Gaza coming up from Egypt are bringing up weapons in a steady insidious way including hand guns and rifles, grenades and hand rocket propellers, etc., according to Golden Reports read here.

Well, early this Memorial day of ours, Monday 5/31/2010, While that part of this day was night here but daylight there, Israel took it's stance to maintain the blockade and warned the six pro Hamas ships to stay back. The ships fained obedience until daylight and then prostrated intent to break the blockade which brought weapon fire from the Israeli's killing two men on board and injuring several others on one ship while the five other ships held their position. Much more about the article can be read here.

We can look at the above articles and see Ezekiel 38 is forming up and about to jump into a front line event. That scripture has never been so close to being fulfilled as now with Turkey taking such a high interest.

So, granted, there is a bruise that will not be healed according to Jeremiah and more. Read here: Jeremiah 30 (King James Version)

Verses 11-17

11For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.

12For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous.

13There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines.

14All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased.

15Why criest thou for thine affliction? thy sorrow is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity: because thy sins were increased, I have done these things unto thee.

16Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey.

17For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

But also clear is that God is for Zion, He will restore her, and she, Zion, is still the apple of God's eye and always will be. Never stop praying for and supporting Zion. We who bless her will be blessed. That promise of God has not ceased. See here: Genesis 12:3 KJV
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

Two more alarming articles that will speak for themselves are these.

We, the USA, are positioning our nuclear ships around Iran even coming through the strait of Hormuz off the Persian Sea.


If tempers are not riled enough, you know how short fused people get when they do not have enough money. Well, here is a peek at what is happening in Spain which frightens all of Europe again. Remember only the other day the howling in the streets of Greece was heard...who next?

Let me share special though that where I am walking and having my being, the ministry is full and rich. The fields are ripe for harvest. While being one little cog of helping a missionary friend in South Dakota move, we were doing a yard sale when a woman approached and asked about receiving Christ. And another woman asked about how to get involved in missions to Canada. A great number of people took great interest in Christian materials available including Bibles, tracts, and deco. Happy to support the missionary who was going to Guatemala with me this Autumn.

I can not sign off without asking your prayers for Guatemala. I praise God who keeps me informed even of the country of my heart while I travel and am without TV or radio, for a man came to the yard sale and asked if we knew a volcano was erupting profusely in Guatemala? Then as I was finally able to access my email, I found emails from missionaries in Guatemala who were asking for prayer not only for the volcano but for the tropical storm Agatha who was pouring down record rainfall creating rivers of mud slides throughout the country. Please pray for the missionaries throughout Guatemala who are trying to continue God's work and help volcano and tropical storm victims as well. Two couples are Ed and Mary Fox and Mark and Dayle Annand and their three children. Their prayer request is that we pray for the people there who are suffering. See article here:

Thank you for following along with me as we keep the watch from where ever we are. God bless and hold you and put you to work to occupy where-ever you are for the time is short is it not? I leave you in Jesus' capable hands until the next time I am given a chance to post again.

Be comforted!

It never matters whether I am feeling low or high or on an even keel, there are scriptures that comfort me. I share them with you here:

1Thessalonians 4:13-18 (King James Version)

13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

It seems unnecessary to explain beyond the Word itself but in addition to it I share this today; I will only be blogging sparingly anymore and I wanted to remember a time where we will meet again for sure. I had a friend who would part saying, “here or there or in the air, I will see you later!”

This summer I would be happy to see you at Strawberry Lake Christian Retreat. I will be there until the beginning of September. Here is the web site to see where and what this camp is all about: You are welcome to come anytime!

This Fall I will go to Guatemala for several months. Even until camp again next summer. Unless, of course, the above scriptures become fulfilled first!

So thank you for all the emails, blog suggestions, and keeping me in the loop with you. Those who became a friend though all this, thank you! I am grateful this friendship is in Christ and therefore endless!

But because internet access will not always be convenient and as in the case of Guatemala and the high lands that I go to, internet is almost nil at times, I can only anticipate a random blog if at all and even the email responses will be rare.

God bless and keep you always!

Cry Out To GOD?

Over and over we are asked to pray. Why? Israel needs prayer, the USA needs prayer, our families need prayer, it seems everything needs prayer. In fact we are admonished to pray without ceasing! As much as I know we need to pray and I support the call to pray, I have never felt particularly good at praying. Last night Jesus helped me see how to improve a bit.

As I was joining in at a local church with a global prayer effort, I found myself praying out loud with everybody there, and once again, with great intensity, I began asking for forgiveness for how we in the USA kill our babies before they are even born; I was thinking about elective abortion. And I was praying, once again, how we are increasingly abandoning Israel while she builds as God would have her do according to the scriptures. I found myself impassioned to, yes, pray for those in position of authority over us but asked for strength to protest when those who are in position of authority are holding their office poorly. I prayed when they are doing a job not up to the standards of the office they are elected to, we would address that without fear for we serve a Great and Mighty God. I asked for forgiveness that we haven't been doing that very well.

Shortly after, one in attendance read how Daniel “cried out to God” about much the same things only the issues were the issues of Daniel's time, yet, the issues involved the government.

The admonishment to 'Cry out to God' filled my ears and heart and I found myself hearing as though from God to share this, do this and apply this in all the days to come.

Cry out to God and He will fight the battle. Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6b (King James Version)

I learned last night that when I am impassioned and praying strongly, be careful not to sound accusing, and not to sound inciting. Pray into the great and mighty Spirit of God instead. The victory will come via the Spirit of God!

Bless us LORD and keep us praying and praying aright, not amiss.

Slave Ministries

This morning I woke up to “check out slave ministries” in my spirit. After devotional and prayer, I did that. Many sites about slavery came up and are very disturbing. The world we live in is still far from pretty. But none of them clicked with my spirit within me. I kept reading until I came to an interview with Michael Little where he is talking with Bill Bright of the CCC which is the Campus Crusade for Christ Ministries. Michael Little is the president of CBN, the Christian Broadcasting Network. The interview may be read here:

As good as the interview is, it is the content that I was being lead to read and not for myself only. I was to share it here with you all. We are being called to be a slave for God; Holy Father, Son Jesus Christ, and Holy Ghost. We are to totally turn ourselves over to Him. All that we are and all that we own.

Opps. I just heard a howl. It sounded like the howl that I heard off the streets of Greece just a little while ago. It was coming from those who think they have some money and have worked themselves into some significant position. Please don't howl. You will soon leave it all behind to go to the Lord as He catches you up in to the air to be with Him forever more and there your riches will be beyond comparison to anything we could possibly know or own down here.

I really think He is asking us to get used to that idea! Read that interview carefully and realize this is not a vow of poverty but of turning yourself totally over to Him. Aspire to have that “I am getting prepared to be in heaven with Him” mentality. We soon will be, you know.

The Lord clearly gave me this to give to you for us all. I hope you will mediate on this and get close to the LORD about it until it fits you well. I have.

May God bless us with helping us to surrender all to Him regardless of what we see or hear or think or are told or encounter in any way for this is what you may see:

But this is what you must do to be ready:

Eye of the Storm

I was watching CNN the other day and jumped over to take in the Fox News slant too and realized I had a question in myself above and beyond the usual. I couldn't put my finger on it and even though I thought back at all the news heard and seen ticker taping across the bottom of the CNN news screen, I wasn't sure what it was that I was missing.

A friend called on the telephone and after about three days of feeling I was missing something about all that is going on, I confessed to her “I don't know anything.” Nothing new to tell her in our phone conversation is how I felt.

I prayed about this unusual feeling of “What am I missing here?” It was about then that I got “You are in the eye of the storm.” That seemed to fit perfectly! Giving it some thought, I realized there was a storm going on all around me, yet, I was in the eye of it being unscathed as I watched. God is the God of me and was giving me a rest as though I was in the eye of a storm. A hush, although eerie, was where I sat calmly pressing forward in Christ Jesus day by day without a bruise. Loving and being loved. Busy, and pleasantly so, without horrible things like I was hearing and seeing on TV. Glad to be a part of anybody else's need to try to help alleviate any suffering they were having even as others have done for me at my troubled times in the past.

I am in Christ Jesus and so as I watch the perplexity of nations all around me in these end times that is very well at hand, I am in the calm. Not unaffected, but calm none the less, because God is the God of me. What a privilege to belong to Him....we must share Him with others every opportunity that avails itself. We must. It does not matter if we share with someone who already knows Jesus or to share Jesus with someone who doesn't know Him, be it to encourage or enlighten, we must share. I feel blessed to be brought to the remembrance of this part of my first love in Him. Hope you are likewise blessed in your walk with Him too.

In sharing...lets listen to this together:

Blessed be His glorious name!

What is Going on Down Southern USA?

We know the TV news and the Face Book postings are different; the Face Book postings seem to come from a little deeper search and more of a pointed viewpoint. So keep an eye on the face book postings indeed!

One of the more interesting postings dealt with a USA flag flying under a Mexican flag on a Mexican business in Arizona. A former vet walked up to the pole and pulled down both flags and cut the American flag off the pole and carried it away leaving the Mexican flag lay on the sidewalk. The Mexican business owner stood there with a friend and after the vet walked away with strong comment that this was not going to happen on his watch, the video camera person approached the Mexican proprietor and asked what his thoughts were of the flag being taken down. The Mexican didn't say anything but did go over to pick up his flag off the sidewalk and went into his store shutting the door on the camera person. This story happened just this last 2009.

In the next two incidences I am including here, the USA flag is flying upside down as it was not in the previous incident yet the Mexican flag is again flying on top of the USA flag.

This next article is generated right off of snopes:

and shows that the article is “true,” and was posted in April of 2006. And this last article shows the consequences of the flying of the upside down USA flag with the Mexican flag having top priority: Students were fined.

We are the USA. First, middle, and last. Anybody loosing sight of that should be taken to task indeed. We can be a mixed culture, but this country was founded, is, and should always be the USA. No war has come and another country upending us that we should be under another countries rule or flag.

We are not only looking at Israel as occupied; we are now pretty much occupied too. Twice over it seems. I love all people but I do not want confusion of Mexican or Islamic 'governments' in place of the Republic for which it stands! So that we could have a 'Republic,' our families fought and died. Granted we have always welcomed in the troubled but not so they can be troublesome! I hope those running from their ruthless country and have slipped into our space to save their lives will understand now that they are able to breath and live and have a being, they really should behave and become one of us or go back and fight for their country to become what we gave up our loved ones as they fought for our freedom. They could really receive Christ as their LORD and Savior and then they would clearly understand this for we should do onto others as we would have them do unto us. It is the golden rule everybody should understand.

The articles from snopes and the dealing with the students is one thing but to have business men who have been welcomed in and sheltered and made survivors through the graciousness of the USA to now put themselves above their helpers that rescued them in time of their need are out of order to fly their flag above ours. In fact, if theirs was a simple moving of themselves into our country to embrace the American dream it still does not give them the right to force their governance on us and then not accept ours. Nor to make their minority rule when we are in a democracy where the majority rules. They are free to follow our laws and respect our flag, constitution, jurisdiction, etc., and they should expect consequences for not doing so.

In so many ways our country is being taken over by occupation. In other words “from within.” I can understand the concern how it is being done illegally yet besides. I don't hate and it has nothing to do with anything except we need to at least try being legal.

But 'peace' can still be reached through Christ and His ways for us Christian's though. I share this:

We should be amazed at God our Savior, not at the audacity of those who occupy us. To look at God's grace is to be amazed.

Did the Whole World Stop?

On Sunday night I sat at my house and I thought back on this lovely Mother's Day and wondered what the late breaking news was? I couldn't remember any. Did the whole world stop and hold it's breath? It did last Friday as the DJS Dow Jones Stocks took a dive. There were audible gasps and mouths dropping to chests and the DJS took a straight line dive to -900s plus. The frightening thing is the HOWL that came forth as a microphone was positioned in the streets of Greece. Was that Biblical by the way? Here is one of 34 “HOWLS” I found in Bible's scripture search:

Isaiah 13:6 (King James Version)

Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.”

Strong words but they are straight from the Bible.

Yet I started the blog out last week with a plea to pray for Israel for the peace talks restarting was being worked on. How did that all turn out I wondered so I goggling that info up and the best article I found is this one:

Basically, the peace talks are to resume. Now we need to pray more then ever! Much is at stake. Freedom for Israel being a really big and important reason to pray. We want the apple of God's eye blessed. Israel is the apple of God's eye.

Zechariah 2:7-9 (King James Version)

Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.

For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me.”

So again I gently ask that we keep praying for Israel.

Thank you and God bless you!

Only in America!

I hope that the National Day of Prayer went off without a hitch for you as it did for me. Our city gathered at the court house for prayer under the USA flag by a war memorial. I am not saying which war the memorial was for because all wars that have been fought to maintain our freedom is as important as the other.

An establishing of the reason for our gathering was made clear right at the beginning and it was to lift the name of our God on high and His name is Jesus the Christ. That is exactly what we did for the full hour; in love, humbleness and joy did we do that.

A choir of Teen Challenge men sang and led us in hymns. Prayer warriors of Pastors, the chief of the Police, a highway patrol man, Sheriff, mayors, ex military men of various wars, governmental representatives, ordinary folks like myself and more lifted our LORD's name on high in prayer and singing.

We praised God to be in a country that is still free enough to be able to do this; meet in broad daylight and pray out loud lifting up the matchless name of Jesus Christ at our own free will because we love God; Father, Son Jesus Christ, and Holy Ghost. I arrived home to a phone call from a friend in another town asking if I was in hand cuffs yet? Of course she was only teasing me but that is the point, isn't it; To be free enough to not be arrested for worshiping in a public place. It is an altogether awesome gift that I do thank God for everyday it is still here! It felt good to still be able to say, “Only in America.” We are the ones with such encompassing freedom.

I treasure to hang onto this freedom. We have been seeing a different trend that collectively many of us have not liked. We have pursued the normal course of contacting our representatives and to no avail. Things have rammed through relentlessly and we in America became the great nation we are because we are people who don't like things rammed through. So we said, “Okay, we will see you at the polls next Fall when it comes time to vote.” After today, that desire sits even deeper in me for I want very much to hang onto what we did under the flag today to continue on for my children and their children. I want them to know and say with full realization, “Only in America.”

So I ask, are you keeping tabs of who is running in your district? Do you know about your candidates to make a wise choice at the voting booth? This is the year we really need to do this. In fact, lets start with knowing how to find which district you are in so you can understand who your candidates may be. Check this site here:

Immediately I could tell I am in district 8 and when I clicked on district 8 I can tell immediately who is my current representative. Get yourself familiar, friends, on how to search out all the information you need to go to the polls prepared to vote your conscious. It is another thing we can still do and lets not let it slip away.

In a lingering heart to praise our LORD, I end the post with this:!

Also, Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely mothers out there in cyberspace! God bless you and yours! Have an absolutely wonderful day this Sunday.

Where is Stability?

If I have had the thought once, I have had it a thousand times and I have heard the same from others. I have thought and heard, ”I don't trust or believe much of what I hear or read anymore.”

Where is our stability? What can we count on anymore? State to state, nation to nation we don't trust. We don't accept with open arms. Instead we screen, test, question, and run through a pyramid of gauntlets what ever is suggested to us be it news, people, or other, everything we hear to figure out it's degree of soundness.

There is something we can count on though. Someone Who is the same yesterday , today, and forever. Of course, that Someone is God. He still proves that choosing to love our enemies will work things to the better. Try it...I did and pleasantly confused my enemy until she became much more congenial to me. I also, this last week saw God meet the needs of several of my close friends individually as only He can and each one felt that special one on one relationship with Him as thought they were special. Each one sought Him and each one found Him right where they were looking. One to be built up. One to be blessed in understanding the Bible she was reading as if the Word applied one on one with her like she never had seen before. One to live the Word of God to care for God's motherless and fatherless. A child who had no one and had been living on the street so long he did not know his parent's names, did not know his real age and only guessed it was 12. She, her husband, and her family was able to be God's instruments to bring him home and tuck him in and now care for Him as if he were one of their own.

These things are showing God is the same today, yesterday and forever. We can and should count on Him; trust Him. He is our stabilizing Rock in this otherwise crazy upside down world we blog about all the time. And my blog is extremely mild about what is out there! We don't need to hammer someone over the head to get the point across. We can warn and alert ourselves to attention and to prayer without being maligners.

Put He Who is worthy in charge of your confused and or muddled thoughts. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and the rest shall be added unto you. Love. Your stability will regain it's balance in a heartbeat.

God bless you and remember to feed among the Christians in the Word of God. The milk is warm and sweet and the meat is rich and savory. The last person you heard, did you give them the test and see if they are lovable? Did you choose to love them anyway for God is over us all and He is lovable. Do what the Bible shows has worked all these centuries and watch the Word of God come alive in you. And to God be all the glory!

Call to Prayer for Israel...urgent!

Last week I was given an email forward that dealt with Israel being in a very compromised position by our USA Government and by the Palestinians. I sent it around and wished for a chance to prove, with hard evidence, the truth of those articles as very best possible. Immediately a number of news articles were sent to me showing a continuous and gradual trend of the USA indeed being pressured, for military political reasons, to take a stand and seemingly against Israel.

This article asks how to restore relationships after Obama snubs the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu:

And this one addresses VP Biden's saying Arab leaders say the USA is incapable of standing up to Israel.

The very title of this one tells of how Obama is changing policy with Israel and is a very serious article to read in my opinion!:

And this article speaks of Obama planning on setting up a final peace plan:

The articles need a careful read to appreciate that the USA is getting ridicule from the Arabs leaders that the USA is wishy washy and impotent. They say we can't get anything done and they see us as sitting impotent ducks. So the pressure is on to get Israel to do as the “they” and the “Palestinians” want so we don't look so weak to them. This kind of thinking floors me because we have not been ones to worry about what others think about us; we tend to forge ahead doing what's right and expecting things to work out. And it usually has in the past as we fully support Israel but it's not looking so good right now.

Granted, I saw a ticker tape across the bottom of the TV screen when watching a CNN news cast that said Spain's unemployment is at 20% which is 10.4% worse then ours. So, yes, we could be looking worse.

Also, regarding Israel. A friend of mine called and asked me to blog letting people know we need to step up our prayers again for Israel right now. She had received this knowing from the LORD and received it strongly.

Now one of the articles I had received from a fellow watcher friend hinted there are soon to be further peace talks between Israel and the PLO and their becoming a two party state. But this article today brought to the forefront that those resumed peace talks are to be this very week!

So yes, it is critical time to pray all this week for Israel....please! Remember the 6th of May is National Day of Prayer. I think we all know that those who bless Israel will be blessed...seems to me praying for Israel is about the best way to pray for ourselves! Let's do it! And Praise God! Please read this article from Jerry Golden and be refreshed of the truth about how the nations are blessed.
