Birthed in Liberty, Dead by Fire

The American flag at half-mast. A symbol, we all recognize and understand to mean that the country is in mourning. I noticed the flag at half-mast as I drove home from church this past Sunday and I wondered if something had happened or if it was at half-mast in honor of December 7, Pearl Harbor day. It never occurred to me that it had been lowered in honor of the passing of Nelson Mandela and it was not until later that I understood that President Obama had ordered the flag to be lowered until sunset Monday in honor of his passing.  A gesture, I might add that many have questioned as Mr. Mandela is not an American.
   In what is being touted as the biggest funeral the world has ever seen for a man “like no other” – mourners, which include a lengthy and impressive list of dignitaries from around the world (including President Obama) have gathered in Johannesburg to pay their respects.
It is interesting to note that President Obama was in the midst of hosting a Chanukah party at the White House on December 5, when he received the news of Mr. Mandela’s death.  In fact he was in between lighting not one, but two Menorah’s that afternoon (because the party was so large), when he received the news. For an excellent analysis of the party and the strange turn of events that accompanied it – check out this article by friend and fellow blogger at Running From Babylon titled – Party Interrupted”.  If you have not yet read it, I greatly encourage you to do so.
   After reading the article above (Party Interrupted)  I could not help but think that there was perhaps even more to be gleaned from the events of that day – after all the first day of Chanukah and the last day of Chanukah 2013 both seemed to be marked in significant ways.
1)  The first day of Chanukah coincided with the American holiday of Thanksgiving – a very rare event.
2)  The passing of world leader Nelson Mandela on the last day of Chanukah – publicly announced by President Obama at a Chanukah party.
To me this is highly suggestive that the information has specifically to do with President Obama and the American people.
   It is no secret that Mr. Mandela was strongly pro-Palestinian even going so far as to suggest that the Palestinian cause was similar to his own struggle against apartheid.  How odd then that the first remarks regarding his death by the most powerful leader on earth were made at a Jewish Chanukah party; the same afternoon that he (President Obama) had assured his mostly Jewish audience of his commitment to keeping Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Yes, his committment to the peace, safety and survival of the Jewish people.  But is he speaking the truth?
hmmmm ……
   As I began to write this article I turned to Psalm 21 and read these words:
“Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies; your right hand  will seize your foes. At the time of your appearing you will make them like a fiery furnace. In his wrath the Lord will swallow them up and his fire will consume them. You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind. Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed for you will make them turn their backs when you aim at them with drawn bow.Psalm 21:8-12.
   As I considered these words, I thought about the White House party and the two Menorah’s which were lit. The first Menorah was designed by holocaust survivor Manfred Anson in 1986 in honor of the centennial celebration of the Statue of Liberty – a very unique Menorah as each branch was fashioned as a mini replica of the Statue of Liberty. A tribute to the freedom Mr. Anson found on coming to the United States after the war.
   The second menorah – a much older one – was retrieved from the burned remains of a prayer hall in Czechoslovakia -a prayer hall torched by the Nazi’s in the early 1940’s.  And, while the family who donated it in 1922 did not survive, the Menorah they donated, did.
   I believe the selection of these particular Menorah was not by accident nor was the timing of Mr. Mandela’s death. For the first Menorah surely symbolized liberty and, the second one,  fire. And, Mr. Mandela for all his accomplishments in the end was a man at cross-purposes with God. A man venerated by millions as they weep next to his glass enclosed body.
   But, the Bible is clear – it never pays to be at cross-purposes with God  – nor to idolize those who do.  The message of Chanukah 2013 clear, I believe  – “the hand writing on the wall”  you might say:
   A specific message for President Obama and the American people – take note:
“What was birthed in liberty shall (for her sins) die by fire”    – for the purposes of God will prevail while, those who oppose Him will fail  ……  and, that is the real message of Chanukah 2013.

  1. For quite a while it seems that there is trail of of odd behaviors and abnormal disruption in physiological stability in people in direct proximity of this man (O).
    This article that GG posted yesterday would be yet another that while it may be just an excuse, but most likely not
    Women fainting or having some sort of psychotic episode while being near him.
    Now this?
    What seems to be happening in the spiritual realm seems to be almost visible to some, after all is that not what is to happen when the AC is revealed?
    After having to deal with an elderly parents aging issue the subject of dementia came up by a health care facility. After looking and researching this I discovered the definition of dementia, a firmly held false belief. Many people at some level have it. Including this facility I found. (they were somewhat distraught after i showed them that).

    The most time appropriate thing to do these days is to watch and pray and disassociate ourselves with ANY manner of non truth or tradition that would cause blindness or lack of discernment.
    Just because there are people who belong to Christ does not mean that everything that can come out of them is of Him.

    Case and point:
    Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

    17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

    18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

    21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

    22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

    23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

    I have seen many things that, yes the Lord can use but, so can the enemy.

    Upon close examination, what is most disturbing to me is how “comfortable” some have become with those who clearly blurred the distinction between what is biblical and what is not by broadening the opening (to heaven).
    The Lord rebuke them all

    The timing of all these things are seemingly uncanny, I do not have a crystal clear view of all the details of the future but I do know who does and may it please Him to give wisdom and understanding to those who read this article.
