Some music for you
Let the weight of your glory fall
From our FRiend DarthVader:
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Here is a powerful word from Dr. Maurice Sklar from California concerning the state of the nation and the SCOTUS decision. It also has much to do with the nation of Israel whom we pray for every day. It also shows how important God considers our relationship with Israel to be in our national and eternal interests.
Below it are Scripture readings that I also received yesterday which powerfully confirms Dr. Sklars. I urge all of us to repent, pray and share the gospel like there is no tomorrow. Feel free to share this message with anyone you know or your Church as you feel led.
Yours In Christ,
Darth Vader <><
WORD FOR UNITED STATES
The Lord spoke to me today as I was watching SCOTUS decision regarding Obamacare and the contempt hearing of Eric Holder. We all need to pray and keep praying for the next several months and make sure you vote and share the gospel. Thus saith the LORD:
Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall NOT go unpunished. I hear the cries and the prayers of My people. But why do you cry out to Me now? Go to your idols that you worship, and the king you voted for. Let them deliver you now. Oh America, America! I am weary of your sins. I am grieved at My very heart at your whoredoms and your wickedness. Oh My church, how you have fallen into lukewarmness, apathy, and sleep! How long shall I bare with your idolatry and whoredoms. These are a stench in My nostrils. You are worse than the pagans that surround you. Your wicked deeds scream at Me louder than your prayers. Why do you cry to Me now? You are only beginning to reap what you have sown. I can bear your sins no more. How can you escape the wrath that is to come? Upon the head of John Roberts lies the guilt and the blame for this Supreme Court ruling, but upon the the nation as a whole lies the guilt of shedding of innocent blood by the millions through abortion; the open and legal embracing of sodomy and all manner of perversion; the daily abominations and sexual perversion through the internet; the departure from My Holy Word in the pulpits; and the greed, lust, selfishness, and disregard for the poor and needy.
You are worse than Sodom and Gomorrah. You are more filthy in my sight than Nineveh. You have broken My covenant I made with the Pilgrims, and the Founding Fathers. But, was that enough for you? No! You turned on the very nation and people that you swore in sacred oath to protect and cherish. Israel is My nation and My land forever. You broke covenant with her and pressured her to divide My land, and empowered her enemies to attack her. Why are there fires, and floods, and storms, and earthquakes, and financial disasters, and calamities hitting you from all sides? Repent of your sins, or it shall becomes seven times more severe than it is. Do you dare provoke me to My face? I am a great God and a Holy King! I hold your breath in My hand! You are only one thread away from the fires of hell, as my servant Jonathan Edwards preached to you during your first days, where you professed you love and espousals to Me.
Return, oh return to Me, America, before it is too late!
Concerning, Barak Obama, Thus saith the LORD:
This court ruling, though seemingly in his favor, will be his Waterloo. He shall be disgraced, shamed, and removed from office. For the sake of My Bride, and those few who have not defiled themselves, and have turned to Me in prayer, I will answer. But, as surely as I live, I shall visit this land with judgment. As you have done, so shall it be done to you.

I inquired of the Lord of what this disastrous decision meant and this is His response.
For all leaders of this nation who have been compromised or corrupted by the New World Order and those who have given themselves over to evil this is Gods ruling on them. So it is written, so shall it be done!!:
The Useless Vine
15The word of the Lord came to me:
2 O mortal, how does the wood of the vine surpass all other woodthe vine branch that is among the trees of the forest?
3 Is wood taken from it to make anything?
Does one take a peg from it on which to hang any object?
4 It is put in the fire for fuel;
when the fire has consumed both ends of it
and the middle of it is charred,
is it useful for anything?
5 When it was whole it was used for nothing;
how much lesswhen the fire has consumed it,
and it is charred can it ever be used for anything!
6 Therefore thus says the Lord God: Like the wood of the vine among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so I will give up the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 7I will set my face against them; although they escape from the fire, the fire shall still consume them; and you shall know that I am the Lord, when I set my face against them. 8And I will make the land desolate, because they have acted faithlessly, says the Lord God.
The Slaughter of the Idolaters
9Then he cried in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, Draw near, you executioners of the city, each with his destroying weapon in his hand. 2And six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his weapon for slaughter in his hand; among them was a man clothed in linen, with a writing-case at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.
3 Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up, from the cherub on which it rested, to the threshold of the house. The Lord called to the man clothed in linen, who had the writing-case at his side, 4and said to him, Go through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of those who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it. 5To the others he said in my hearing, Pass through the city after him, and kill; your eye shall not spare, and you shall show no pity. 6Cut down old men, young men and young women, little children and women, but touch no one who has the mark. And begin at my sanctuary. So they began with the elders who were in front of the house. 7Then he said to them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain. Go! So they went out and killed in the city. 8While they were killing, and I was left alone, I fell prostrate on my face and cried out, Ah Lord God! will you destroy all who remain of Israel as you pour out your wrath upon Jerusalem? 9He said to me, The guilt of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great; the land is full of bloodshed and the city full of perversity; for they say, The Lord has forsaken the land, and the Lord does not see. 10As for me, my eye will not spare, nor will I have pity, but I will bring down their deeds upon their heads.
11 Then the man clothed in linen, with the writing-case at his side, brought back word, saying, I have done as you commanded me.
9 Thus says the Lord of hosts:
Glean* thoroughly as a vine
the remnant of Israel;
like a grape-gatherer, pass your hand again
over its branches.
10 To whom shall I speak and give warning,
that they may hear?
See, their ears are closed,*
they cannot listen.
The word of the Lord is to them an object of scorn;
they take no pleasure in it.
11 But I am full of the wrath of the Lord;
I am weary of holding it in.
Pour it out on the children in the street,
and on the gatherings of young men as well;
both husband and wife shall be taken,
the old folk and the very aged.
12 Their houses shall be turned over to others,
their fields and wives together;
for I will stretch out my hand
against the inhabitants of the land,
says the Lord.
13 For from the least to the greatest of them,
everyone is greedy for unjust gain;
and from prophet to priest,
everyone deals falsely.
14 They have treated the wound of my people carelessly,
saying, Peace, peace,
when there is no peace.
15 They acted shamefully, they committed abomination;
yet they were not ashamed,
they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;
at the time that I punish them, they shall be overthrown,
says the Lord.
16 Thus says the Lord:
Stand at the crossroads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way lies; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.
But they said, We will not walk in it.
17 Also I raised up sentinels for you:
Give heed to the sound of the trumpet!
But they said, We will not give heed.
18 Therefore hear, O nations,
and know, O congregation, what will happen to them.
19 Hear, O earth; I am going to bring disaster on this people,
the fruit of their schemes,
because they have not given heed to my words;
and as for my teaching, they have rejected it.
20 Of what use to me is frankincense that comes from Sheba,
or sweet cane from a distant land?
Your burnt-offerings are not acceptable,
nor are your sacrifices pleasing to me.
21 Therefore thus says the Lord:
See, I am laying before this people
stumbling-blocks against which they shall stumble;
parents and children together,
neighbour and friend shall perish.
I join in prayer for Israel, Jerusalem and all God’s beloved.
(A little different type of post, today, but I thought it fit in with the scripture...)
Little pokey things
There is nothing quite like the love of a child. Last year, I was walking in Jerusalem with four year-old Purieli when he noticed a patch of trees.
“Ima,” he calls me mother in Hebrew, “did G-d make the trees?”
“Yes,” I answered.
“Oh, I love you little trees! And did G-d make the flowers?” he asked, pointing around the trunks of the trees where pretty spring flowers were popping up.
“Yes,” I answered again.
“Oh, I love you little flowers! Ima, did G-d make these?” he continues, pointing to some prickly weeds.
“Yes, sweetie-pie,” I answered, wondering how many more questions would follow in the next few minutes.
“Oh, I love you little pokey things! Ima, I love everything that G-d makes.”
Anne of Green Gables liked to say that it takes all kinds of people to make up the world, but that there are some types we could all do without. It seems that G-d didn't agree.
Some people that we know are like the trees: strong, supportive and consistent. Maybe it's a sibling, a spouse, a parent or a very dear friend. Even if you don't see them for a while, when you're back together it doesn't feel like much has changed. Reliable and dependable, we all need people like this in our lives.
Others are the flowers. These people may not share a significant slice of life with us, but they make it colorful and beautiful. If we are focusing on the past or future too much, it's easy to miss out on these seasonal relationships. They help us slow down, take a deep breath, or jump up and dance, and enjoy the moment.
Still there are the people who are prickly and uncomfortable to be around. Maybe you have some of these in your life...and maybe we've each been one of these in someone else’s life. It's a challenge at times to love everything—and everyone—that G-d makes. But that challenge has been handed to us and it's actually simple enough that even a child can do it.
Fast forward to five year-old Purieli, walking home from school with me and baby. He suddenly stopped, his eyes got so big, and he pointed excitedly to the road that had just been paved into the new neighborhood of Kfar Shamai. “Look Ima,” he cried out, pointing to the construction workers, “they made a road! They are so, so, SO nice...aren't they?”
How does a person get to that level of love and appreciation? I'm just thrilled to have found such an outstanding teacher. Maybe one day I'll catch up to him.
