RABBI KITTEH SAYETH REPENT!
When anyone is guilty in any of these ways,
he must confess in what way he has sinned
~ Leviticus 5:5
Religious fanatic, that's what they say
True, I may be on the brink
I hear them yell at us, "Shut up and play!"
Well, who asked what you think?
No time for mediocricy, convenience, or practicality
He went all out for us, say what you will
I'll answer to my God.
I'm a freak, they say I've lost my mind
But I know I've never seen so clearly
When I speak, they say I've gone too far this time
Which lets me know, I have not gone nearly.
Bible thumpin' reactionist
And I'm proud to bear the name
Take our music, take away our lives
Jesus still remains
I wonder what will people think
When they hear that I'm a Jesus freak
Where are your forefathers now?
And the prophets, do they live forever?
But did not my words and my decrees,
which I commanded my servants the prophets,
overtake your forefathers?
Then they repented and said,
"The LORD Almighty has done to us
what our ways and practices deserve,
just as he determined to do.'"
~ Zechariah 1
O LORD, do not your eyes look for truth?
You struck them,
but they felt no pain;
you crushed them,
but they refused correction.
They made their faces harder than stone
and refused to repent.
~ Jeremiah 5:3
In Tanach (the Jewish Bible), it speaks about the Nations of the North assembling and descending upon Israel in a conquest of savage killing. In the Prophecy the attacking Nations from the North succeed in occupying, first the lowlands along the sea and then they begin to ascend the foothills toward Jerusalem.
They succeed with much carnage, raping, killing until the earth heaves; the skies turn black wherein a man cannot see to the end of his arm. This phenomenon speaks of volcanic ash so dense that nothing can be seen. The invading armies panic and begin killing each – because they cannot see. In brief, the enemy attackers against the Jewish people die terrible deaths.
The prophecies speak of “instruction of how to bury the enemy dead over a 7 year period”. The dead and their bones are to be buried in a valley near Haifa which has come to be known as the Valley of Dry Bones. Those passing by must mark any place where they see human remains of the invaders so that teams of bone collectors can transport the remains to the Valley of Dry Bones.
But, if you are a modern day non-believer in such mystical prognostications as prophecy then, let’s talk about politics and practical military planning. Since I write about War – Weapons – Terrorist Nations and their proxies, let us ignore prophecy for a moment.
I keep my eyes and ears on articles and reports from military journals. I carefully watch the Nations as the world agonizes, desperate to blame someone/anyone for their pain. Several years ago I noticed a small mention in U.S. Defense News, that the E.U. (European Union) was discussing a Rapid Deployment Force which they didn’t have and didn’t want to spend the money to build. It was ‘mentioned’ that they might approach NATO – which was primarily American supplied and manned, to be that Force.
For me that spoke a whole book, because I knew that NATO was looking for a project and a reason to exist. I also knew that they needed a target to give it purpose and to validate their training and existence. My antennae told me that Europe, being Europe, their target would be Israel – inevitably.
It would take time to build the rationale for such an attack but, the underlying theme would be “bringing peace to the Middle East” as justification. That, IF the Arab Muslim Palestinian Terrorists could be settled through forced evacuation of Jews from their ancient homeland, then all the Islamic Terrorists in the world would be convinced to lay down their arms and live in peace with the West. The Nations of the West desperately wanted to believe that the Muslims would abandon their mandatory Koranic Law and cease their goal of making all the World into a Global Caliphate under Sharia Law.
That delusion was expanded with the idea that Islamists attacking the West would cease their assaults all over the World.
At this time I began to write a series of articles (7 so far) entitled: “The Gathering of the Nations”. In brief, I conjectured that the Europeans, in collusion with the nations of the North, namely, Russia, Iran, Turkey and Syria, allowing those with their Terrorist proxies like Hamas and Hezb’Allah, Al Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT)/ Jamaat ul Dawa (JuD) (10 Pakistani killers in Mumbai November 23, 2008 who slaughtered at least 172 victims – including the hospitable, peace-loving and beloved Rabbi Gavriel and Rebbitzin Rivka Holtzberg who ran the Chabad House) plus all the other major and minor Terror organizations and their Muslim State Terror Sponsors – the paymasters, who run their proxies all over the world.
The Terror proxies would initiate a “Peace” attack. A flotilla of a mixed fleet of ships of participating Nations would cross the Mediterranean – all under the umbrella of “Peace-Keepers”. It would be highly likely that Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia would add their arms from the South and Southeast. The Europeans would simply resurrect their centuries of Church-taught Jew-hatred, including their participation in assisting Adolph Hitler to murder six million Jews.
We see this evolving process in motion at this very time. The U.N., E.U., U.S., Russia, Iran Syria, Turkey, ‘et al’, are ramping up their propaganda campaign to further demonize Israel and the Jewish people so their respective population will agree to the invasion and accept another Holocaust.
Hopefully, the American people who trust and support the Jewish State and the Jewish people will not be deluded and will fight back against what the Obama regime is doing in support of Islam – against Christianity and Judaism.
I can only speculate about the secular aspects of such a war. Hopefully, Israel will have new leaders who would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons against any invading force. In addition, to having nuclear missiles on a ready launch position to target all the oil fields, leaving them glowing for centuries. This possibility should be a deterrence but, given the hatred of centuries which is so pervasive – even the loss of oil may not deter the “Final Attack of the Final Solution to the Jewish Question”.
I wonder if Nuclear Bombs could split the sea as in ancient times, closing over the invading forces, sinking their modern day chariots and the pursuing army.
So, what are we to conclude when the nations gather to accuse and castigate the only democratically constituted government in the Middle East in a frenzy, leading to talk of invasion. What are we to think when Iran threatens to wipe Israel across the face of the earth and neither the U.N., the U.S. or the E.U. allows Israel to defend herself.
Moreover, the accusers in many cases are nations run by cruel dictators having committed heinous crimes against their own citizens and exported Terror to other nations. Even the most rabid anti-Semites would have to look at their own rulers and the policy of suppression of human rights endemic in their own nations.
So whether you believe that retribution, as specified in the ancient prophecies, or the daily news reports which speak of rising Terror at the hands of the Islamists – the end is the same. Humanity may very well been on the brink of extinction from their own actions or retribution from a Higher Order, the pain is racheting up globally.
We know from past history that evil people (Islam) are allowed to rise up to torment nations as a punishment for what those nations have done. Islam is today’s curse and punishment. Then, as in the past, they too will be destroyed as they were only a temporary tool. Many believe that the rise of Islam is like the ancient plagues of Locusts that devastates the Land and starves the people. Then the Locusts are destroyed by an East Wind that blows them into the Sea. Today we see leaders rise up like Gog in the prophecy or as the Christians call the anti-Christ. We observe such indicators as America suffers massive, unrecoverable debt and other calamities as her leaders bond with Terrorists for the sake of oil.
Perhaps we will never hear a booming voice from Heaven, warning us but, tsunamis, incurable diseases in pandemics, watching our retirement nest-eggs turn to dust – may be that message.
Then Hezekiah repented of the pride of his heart,
as did the people of Jerusalem;
therefore the LORD's wrath did not come upon them
during the days of Hezekiah.
~ 2 Chronicles 32:26
5 Hezekiah trusted in the LORD, the God of Israel. There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before him or after him. 6 He held fast to the LORD and did not cease to follow him; he kept the commands the LORD had given Moses. 7 And the LORD was with him; he was successful in whatever he undertook. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him. 8 From watchtower to fortified city, he defeated the Philistines, as far as Gaza and its territory.
9 In King Hezekiah's fourth year, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, Shalmaneser king of Assyria marched against Samaria and laid siege to it. 10 At the end of three years the Assyrians took it. So Samaria was captured in Hezekiah's sixth year, which was the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel. 11 The king of Assyria deported Israel to Assyria and settled them in Halah, in Gozan on the Habor River and in towns of the Medes. 12 This happened because they had not obeyed the LORD their God, but had violated his covenant—all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded. They neither listened to the commands nor carried them out.
13 In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah's reign, Sennacherib king of Assyria attacked all the fortified cities of Judah and captured them. 14 So Hezekiah king of Judah sent this message to the king of Assyria at Lachish: "I have done wrong. Withdraw from me, and I will pay whatever you demand of me." The king of Assyria exacted from Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents d]">[d] of silver and thirty talents e]">[e] of gold. 15 So Hezekiah gave him all the silver that was found in the temple of the LORD and in the treasuries of the royal palace.
16 At this time Hezekiah king of Judah stripped off the gold with which he had covered the doors and doorposts of the temple of the LORD, and gave it to the king of Assyria.
19 The field commander said to them, "Tell Hezekiah:
" 'This is what the great king, the king of Assyria, says: On what are you basing this confidence of yours? 20 You say you have strategy and military strength—but you speak only empty words. On whom are you depending, that you rebel against me? 21 Look now, you are depending on Egypt, that splintered reed of a staff, which pierces a man's hand and wounds him if he leans on it! Such is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who depend on him. 22 And if you say to me, "We are depending on the LORD our God"-isn't he the one whose high places and altars Hezekiah removed, saying to Judah and Jerusalem, "You must worship before this altar in Jerusalem"?
23 " 'Come now, make a bargain with my master, the king of Assyria: I will give you two thousand horses—if you can put riders on them! 24 How can you repulse one officer of the least of my master's officials, even though you are depending on Egypt for chariots and horsemen f]">[f] ? 25 Furthermore, have I come to attack and destroy this place without word from the LORD ? The LORD himself told me to march against this country and destroy it.' "
26 Then Eliakim son of Hilkiah, and Shebna and Joah said to the field commander, "Please speak to your servants in Aramaic, since we understand it. Don't speak to us in Hebrew in the hearing of the people on the wall."
27 But the commander replied, "Was it only to your master and you that my master sent me to say these things, and not to the men sitting on the wall—who, like you, will have to eat their own filth and drink their own urine?"
28 Then the commander stood and called out in Hebrew: "Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria! 29 This is what the king says: Do not let Hezekiah deceive you. He cannot deliver you from my hand. 30 Do not let Hezekiah persuade you to trust in the LORD when he says, 'The LORD will surely deliver us; this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.'
31 "Do not listen to Hezekiah. This is what the king of Assyria says: Make peace with me and come out to me. Then every one of you will eat from his own vine and fig tree and drink water from his own cistern, 32 until I come and take you to a land like your own, a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of olive trees and honey. Choose life and not death!
"Do not listen to Hezekiah, for he is misleading you when he says, 'The LORD will deliver us.' 33 Has the god of any nation ever delivered his land from the hand of the king of Assyria? 34 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena and Ivvah? Have they rescued Samaria from my hand? 35 Who of all the gods of these countries has been able to save his land from me? How then can the LORD deliver Jerusalem from my hand?"
36 But the people remained silent and said nothing in reply, because the king had commanded, "Do not answer him."
37 Then Eliakim son of Hilkiah the palace administrator, Shebna the secretary and Joah son of Asaph the recorder went to Hezekiah, with their clothes torn, and told him what the field commander had said.
