The War of the Gods . . . Again!

“The Mufti of Jerusalem has issued a ruling for his congregants in response to newly added metal detectors at all nine gates in the Old City: Any Muslim who goes to pray at the Mosques via the Zionist metal detectors, their prayers will be “invalid” and not be received by Allah.”

What a threat! What a weak attempt to keep Muslims from prayer. What is there about the metal detectors that so intimidate them? Is it because they can’t sneak their weapons onto the Temple Mount? Oh my. How sad. How unfair of those Jews to make these poor Muslims go through metal detectors.

Jews and Christians have to go through metal detectors in order to pray at the Western Wall. Yep! That’s the truth. It’s the standard “put your bag on the belt and walk through”. Each time those nasty IDF soldiers actually look in my bag to see if I have any guns or knives or bombs or anything else that indicates harm to myself of others. How dare they protect me like that! I have rights you know.

It was just three years ago – three short years (July 20, 2014) – that Gaza Strip’s Hamas complained “Their God Changes the Path of Our Rockets in Mid-Air!” How dare Him to do that! Wouldn’t you think He would have a better sense of decorum than to mess with the rockets of Hamas? Really. How are they going to kill more Jews if the Jewish God messes with their rockets?

Perhaps it is time to call out to Baal – a/k/a Allah – and ask him to rain down fire from heaven. Come on. Let’s do it. Remember Elijah and the priests of Baal on Mt. Carmel? Remember how they cut themselves and danced and cried and begged their god to rain down fire to set the sacrifice on fire? (I Kings 18) Didn’t do it. Couldn’t do it. Probably Elijah was right, their god was either asleep or in the bathroom. Anyway, he didn’t do it.

But that Jewish God … Well, He did do it. But He had to wait until Elijah and his helpers drenched the sacrifice with water – lots of water. He couldn’t do it to a dry sacrifice, it had to be a wet one. They hauled water and hauled water and hauled water. Then – wait for it. Stand back. Wait. Oh yeah, Elijah prayed … “At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. 37 Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.” 38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!”

Guess what. That same God – the God of Israel and Elijah – that same God is the God of the Jews today. If I were the Muslims, I wouldn’t be messing with Him! He is mighty. He is awesome. He is slow to anger but when He does …. oh my.

Oh yes, by the way – Elijah is coming. In fact, I think he’s on his way! Fire!

Hatred’s Emissary

Friday evening in Israel is normally a time of great celebration as the Queen of Shabbat is welcomed into Jewish homes across the country. It is a lovely time of joy, family, grace, and God. Children are home from school, parents are home from work and soldiers are home for this special day that comes once a week. Shabbat is a time of peace. A time of coming together. A time of respite from the noisy, busy world.

Last Friday, Shabbat was a time of death for a Jewish family that was not only welcoming in Shabbat but celebrating the birth of a new grandchild, born that day. The family gathered around the Shabbat table with great joy, eagerly anticipating the arrival of nearby friends to celebrate the birth with them. The door was unlocked allowing those friends to ‘come on in’ without having to wait at the door in the extreme heat.

An unwelcome guest came to the event. Satan’s Emissary of Hatred showed up wielding a knife purchased specifically for this purpose, slashing through the peace and serenity that had been, spreading blood and hatred through the home of the celebrants, leaving the grandfather and two of his adult children dead and the grandmother fighting for her life.

Excuses abound. The Emissary of Hatred, a teenage boy, declared it was because Muslim access to the Al Aqsa Mosque had been stopped by Israel. In fact, that isn’t true at all. Access to the Temple Mount now requires they go through metal detectors just as one has to go through to reach the Western Wall. No prayer was stopped. No access to the Temple Mount was stopped other than that caused by the boycott declared by the Waqf – the Muslim hierarchy.

The Emissary of Hatred survived the attack although he had been neutralized by an IDF soldier who came from a nearby home when he heard the screaming. Well trained in response to terrorism, the soldier fired through a window and stopped the attack by shooting Satan’s henchman. The Satanic henchman’s smiling face is shown on newspapers across Israel as he lay on a gurney in an Israeli hospital while his family and the Palestinians celebrated by dancing in the streets, passing out candy and rejoicing over his “heroic deed”. This heroic deed will qualify the family to start receiving subsidy payments from the PLO. I wonder, does that make this murder for hire?

In the face of hatred, Israel stands strong. While the world will blame Israel and demand that she acquiesce to the outcry of the Muslims let us pray that the pressure put on Israel will not be so strong that she will surrender to the hate, remove the metal detectors and allow what was continue to be.

When Is a Lie a Lie?

This week has been a week of much watching as President Donald J Trump and his wife have flown from country to country on a very busy tour of the Muslim, Jewish and Christian lands of Saudi Arabia, Israel and Rome. Much has been said about his trip, the words he has spoken, the reception he has received and the beauty of his lovely wife.

As an ardent Christian Zionist, I’ve watched almost all of the trip with a need to know and hear, for myself, as he has delivered addresses at each of these locations. I’ve listened to the addresses, I’ve printed them out and read them and, in a couple of cases, I typed a verbatim of the address just to make sure I don’t present false or erroneous information to my audience. I was particularly interested in the speeches in Saudi Arabia and Israel, for all the apparent reasons.

In Saudi, he was very clear in his call on the Islamic states to rise up against the terrorism that is coming out of Islam. His speech was poignant with many references to stop the killing, even saying, “Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God, they worship death.”

Again and again he called for the terrorism to stop and enjoined the Muslim nations there, listening to his speech, to join in the fight against jihad, terrorism, and senseless murder. He was strong. He was pointed. He was clear. President Trump said, “Drive them out. Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land, and DRIVE THEM OUT OF THIS EARTH.” No confusion on these statements.

He spoke of his journey saying, “We must practice tolerance and respect for each other once again –and make this region a place where every man and woman, no matter their faith or ethnicity, can enjoy a life of dignity and hope. In that spirit, after concluding my visit in Riyadh, I will travel to Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and then to the Vatican – visiting many of the holiest places in the three Abrahamic Faiths. If these three faiths can join together in cooperation, then peace in this world is possible – including between Israelis and Palestinians. …”

This is a long shot and a gutsy statement. He has stood strong and non-apologetic against some of our strongest challenges. Time will show how serious those listening to his speeches are regarding cooperation and what price they are willing to pay to stop the terrorism.

Then, I received an email from a friend who was angry over a speech by a Christian man who considers himself to be a prophecy expert. The man, JD Farag, was taking exception to President Trump’s speech, saying, “I have to say that I’m not surprised. And, I’ll explain why I say that. Trump spoke as Presidents before him spoke and in so doing, he profaned and even blasphemed the true and living God by implying that Jews, Christians and Muslims worship the same God. I make no apologies for saying that and I also make no apologies for what I’m about to say. But Trump’s speech is wrong on every level and it’s very grievous. And what’s even more grievous, if this weren’t bad enough, is that most Christians haven’t got a clue.”

“Here is the fact of the matter,” Farag continued. “He is seeking to unite Islam, Judaism and Christianity vis-a-vis the dividing of Jerusalem. That’s why he is in Saudi Arabia today. That’s why tomorrow he leaves for Israel. Then after Israel he goes to Brussels – or he goes to the Vatican to meet with the Pope. And then after that he goes to Brussels where he’ll meet with NATO.”

From there Farag continue to build ‘his case’ against President Trump and the tour that he is on, going so far as to use a headline put out by Fox news as another cause or reason for damning this trip. I will admit, I did not listen to all of Farag’s dialog – I could only stand it for about seven minutes then I was through.

While listening to President Trump’s speeches one thought consistently went through my mind and that was, ‘speak softly and carry a big stick’. The Muslim world that had gathered in Riyadh had done so for two reasons: the were listening to an American President with backbone that was more than willing to back up what he said; and, they are in dire need of uniting against the terrorist called ISIS that are backed by their archenemy, Iran. They are worried about their own country’s survival. This is a case of the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Do I expect there to be world peace. No, I don’t. The Bible doesn’t say that unless President Trump is the man of peace and I don’t think he is. He is giving the world a chance to stop Islamic terror, plain and simple. Will it work? I don’t know. But I do know that we have lost a lot of Americans to terror beginning with the bombing of our barracks in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983 and on from there to the World Trade Center in 2001, and untold number of soldiers in the following wars. IF this works, then God bless him. If it doesn’t then there will be no choice but to use the big stick.

As to Farag and others like him, I’m so sorry that they cannot get past themselves to take an non-biased look at this. I agree, from a biblical standpoint, the peace thing won’t work but that doesn’t mean, in any way, that President Trump is willing to divide Jerusalem. That is a curse that needs not to light. That is a lie!

The Russians Are Coming!

Oh my – run! Run! Run! Run for your lives. The Russians are coming! They are going to kill us. They are going to torture us. They are going to cook us and eat us. Run! Run! Run! Hide. There has to be someplace they don’t know about. Hide. Hide. Oh my, oh my!

Isn’t that the way it sounds these days as the media – whether its fake or real – continues to hammer and hammer and hammer us with Russia’s hammer and cycle!

It was okay for the late, great, and soon-to-be-reborn-Hillary, the Secretary of State, Clinton to sidle up to Russia with a magic reset button. Surely there wasn’t anything wrong with that visual – was there? Didn’t we all love it – she brought us hope! Oh yes, hope! There was the hope that she wasn’t messing things up. But, we soon learned that our hope was well placed when we saw her whispering with Vlad – the shirtless horseman – perhaps they were whispering about horses! Who knows.

No worries. We were doubly assured that all was well with Russia when Hillary The Amazing Clinton sold them 20% of all of our uranium. Who cares? What’s the use of uranium anyway? Oh, maybe he wanted it to line the keel of his yacht. He does have a yacht, doesn’t he? If he has a horse, surely he has a yacht. He could line the keel of his yacht – or someone else’s that he’s borrowed – like Crimea’s – so it would steer straighter. Yeah. Maybe that’s what he needs the uranium for. Surely uranium is harmless so what’s the big deal?

Now we all know that he loves Hillary. Right? Well, why not since she’s cut so many wonderfully re-energizing deals with Putin and his country. So why on earth would he even think about messing with America’s elections? I mean, really. Think about it. He had things worked out with Hillary so why would Russia want Donald J. Trump to be President? Why?

Now there’s another thing to consider which I’ll sneak in here. Suppose, just suppose, that we had our election process so well regulated that people had to show a photo ID that contained proof of citizenship to vote. Then, maybe then, we’d know if someone was messing with our voter polls. Maybe then we’d know if someone was hacking our voting machines and messing with them. But, I digress….

Now all of Washington is in a tizzy. They don’t know what to do. It used to be Vlad and Hill and now it’s Hill and Bill and James is out in the cold when everyone knows he told! Oh my. What will we do? I think it is time to watch a movie. Maybe Dr. Strangelove or Bridge of Spies was pretty good. At least, we know that is Hollywood and we don’t know for sure about anything coming out of Washington or the news media! So, what’s a girl to do? I think I’ll push a reset button, turn off TV and do just that – watch a movie or even better – read a book!

Cashless Society?

Sometimes catch phrases float through the air, wafting like an airless balloon, yet we don’t stop to pull them down and find out what they actually mean. I began to find out some of that a few days ago when I used my ever convenient bank debit card at a service station in one of the more ‘prominent’ areas of Oklahoma City – 14101 North Pennsylvania, to be exact!

It was a Sunday afternoon and I had the pleasure of taking my granddaughter, a senior in high school, on a shopping trip to find the perfect white dress and white shoes to wear under her white gown for the event. In my haste, I didn’t put gasoline in my car in my neighborhood where all things are familiar! Mistake number one. Noticing the tank was much lower than I normally allow it, I pulled into a Shell station on North Pennsylvania because I’m pretty particular about the type of gas I put into my car. I did not notice the station was an EZMart! Another mistake.

My granddaughter went inside to get us something to drink while I pumped the gas, using my bank debit card. The bill came to $36.46. I obtained my receipt and we drove off happily with both the car and us refueled.

The next day I went online to check my bank account and was shocked to see that the EZMart had not only run through the $36.46 charge, but an additional $75. I called my bank to register my dismay and protest the $75. They told me, “Oh, the merchant did that. We didn’t do it.” I called EZMart and talked to the District Supervisor over Oklahoma City and Shawnee, Jennifer. She informed me it wasn’t EZMart that did it – it was the bank. I called the bank back and spoke to the same person again, only to learn – one more time – that it was the merchant that did it.

Now we have a shoot out at the OK Corral – The bank didn’t do it. The merchant didn’t do it. Maybe I am crazy! Maybe I did it myself. At this point, I am furious. I don’t know which is making me the maddest – the theft of my $75 or the refusal to admit that one of them actually did do it. I am so mad that I decide I’ll get to the bottom of this.

I called Senator Lankford’s office to ask what the law was that allowed either the bank or the merchant to just charge my account without my authorization. The lovely young lady asked questions and said, “As far as I know there isn’t such a law.” She further stated they would post this on their website to alert the public that EZMart was doing such a thing.

In the meantime, life went on but I was determined I would get on top of this. I watched my bank account online to see what would happen. On Tuesday, the “pending” signal came off of the $36.46 charge meaning it had cleared the bank and EZMart had gotten their money. However, the $75 charge was still “pending”. Now I’m really mad. I’m feeling I’ve been robbed and was more than willing to tell that to anyone that was willing to listen.

On Wednesday morning, I checked my account again. The charge was still there. I put on my armor and started making more phone calls. First, I called EZMart and got the most ridiculous, rudest employee you could ever ask for that refused to put me through to Jennifer until she knew all of my business. I finally said, “I’m calling about the $75 you have stolen from me.” That wasn’t enough to get her to put me through to Jennifer! Finally, through my anger and loss of temper I managed to get Jennifer on the phone who politely informed me, once again, that “the bank did it and they could hold my money for up to two weeks.” Now I’m certifiable!

I got the name of the owner of EZMart from Jennifer. By the way, it is EZMart, 602 West Falvey Avenue, Texarkana, TX 75504. I called their headquarters (1-800-234-6502) and left a rather terse message for Sonja Hubbard. Somehow these people are never at their desk – I’m not sure if they even exist. However, once again, the sweet little operator wouldn’t put me through until she knew ‘what the call was about’. I told her it was theft of my money at an EZMart store. She, of course, wanted to know all the details and if I had told the police. I said, “Not yet!” I told Sonja – well, Sonja’s answering machine – my tale of woe and left my phone number. Of course, I didn’t get a call back.

Once again, I called my bank and talked to the same guy. I asked him what the law was that allowed a ‘merchant’ to steal my money and the bank to allow them to get buy with it when I’m protesting and saying that’s not my charge. He didn’t know the law but he would ask his legal department to call me. They still haven’t. It’s been several weeks now. Oddly enough, that same day the $75 was cleared back into my account. Hmmmm. Not sure how that happened. I guess if you appear crazy enough things can – or might – happen. I promised him, and myself, that I would not drop this. I wanted to know what the law was that allowed the bank/merchant to do this. Of course, he continues to tell me it is the merchant.

I had to leave town on business for  a week but I remained determined. On Monday of this week I received a call from Senator Lankford’s office telling me she had checked on it and suggested that I call the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office. I did that. They didn’t know anything about such a law but routed me to the Oklahoma Banking Commission. I talked to a nice man, Dudley Gilbert, who probably thought I was a wacko over reacting to an incident that ‘happens constantly’. Maybe so. But I wanted to know by what authority the banking industry or merchant could steal my money.

I found out from Dudley Gilbert, who had to look things up, that there is not a law that allows the bank/merchant to do this. It is an agreement with Visa/Mastercard. He said, “When you swipe that debit card you are agreeing to let them put a ‘hold’ on your account for whatever amount of money they deem necessary.” Well, who knew that. Small print. Guess I’ll buy a magnifying glass. He went on to tell me that it is the merchant who determines the amount and the bank determines how long it sits on hold, but it can not exceed three days! Well heck. I should have known that. Who wouldn’t know such a silly thing.

From there, the excuses only got worse. He said the ‘service station doesn’t know how much gas I’m going to put in my vehicle, and had it been a pickup or truck, it could have been at least $75 so that’s why they put such a high hold on it. I’m hearing him but angry at the ridiculousness of it. And, I didn’t and still don’t understand how they can justify holding my money after they’ve gotten their payment.

It boils down to what I don’t understand doesn’t matter. They who have the money machines are the ones in control. Perhaps we all need to think about that. Our government is pushing us toward a cashless society. That means every time we swipe one of the magic pieces of plastic someone can meddle with out bank accounts, holding our money. What if it were for a higher amount and what it if was for a longer time. Personally, I’m done with using a bank card at a service station. From now on I’ll trot in and pay cash. That’s how we used to do it and we didn’t think anything about it. I’ve loved the convenience of using the debit card but I’m rethinking that convenience now.

As to EZMart , I pulled into a service station on my recent business trip, looked up and saw it was a Shell EZMart and I pulled right back out. I’m not doing this dance again.

I feel better now that I’ve gotten this off of my chest and I hope it is a warning to you – my friends – not to shop at EZMart !

Don’t forget my book, Who Will Kill the Spiders?, is available on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble.

Five Simple Questions

Last night I watched with dismay as Fox’s Jesse Waters interviewed high school students who had skipped school to demonstrate against President Trump. When interviewed, the children said their parents were aware of their skipping and approved it. Their teachers were aware and one of them even said the teacher had said, “good for you”. That, in itself, is shocking from the way I raised my children in the dark ages – skip school and you’ll be grounded one day for every hour you miss.

Most of the children didn’t even know what they were demonstrating for, or against, or even why. One black boy thought President Trump had said, ‘blacks are ignorant’…no proof of that and he didn’t know where he had heard it. One girl was demonstrating against the Executive Order preventing entrance into the United States by undocumented aliens. She was sure these people were not terrorists. When asked what countries the ban was against, she had no idea but named Iran as one of them. When told that it was one of the world’s largest sponsors of terrorism she seemed stunned.

For those who don’t know, the ban is against seven Muslim-majority countries cited by President Trump in his executive order that blocks all refugees from Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Iraq and Syria for 120 days until a vetting system can be established. For Syria, the suspension is indefinite.

These children, all of whom are young Americans who have no memory of 9/11 and most of whom probably don’t have a clue about the 15+ year war we have been fighting since then, need to go home and be taught truth. I wonder, did their parents or their teachers ever tell them that before they lent their name and person to anything of significance they should ask five simple questions. Who. What. When. Where. Why.

Those five question, when truly asked and answered, can make the difference in our knowing, really knowing, what the fight is all about. In this instance, these children had no idea Who they were demonstrating against. It was simply, “TRUMP”. No President. No leader of our country. No duly elected and inaugurated person into the highest, most respected office in the land – or in the world, for that matter.

Did they know what they were demonstrating about? Not really. TRUMP is a racist. TRUMP is…whatever fit their playbill for the moment.

When. That, they did seem to know. The when of the matter was today – a school day – and they got to skip which was probably primary in their minds.

Where was in front of the White House or on a street corner or in the streets. It didn’t matter. They were acting out and they were enjoying being the center of this movement – whatever it is about – for the moment.

Why – they were totally clueless as was demonstrated by their responses when asked.

There is that part of me that says, ‘oh well, they are just kids and it doesn’t matter’. But it does matter. It matters a great deal. What this speaks of is children who are not being properly educated at home or in school. It speaks of children, and a country, that is out of control for no reason but absolute stupidity and that is sad.

I can’t help but wonder when someone – be it a parent, a teacher, an official will stand up and call a halt to this stupidity. Not just the children demonstrating in the streets yesterday, but the thugs demonstrating in various parts of our country, including those who are demonstrating in Congress of all places. It is called a temper tantrum that someone didn’t get their way.

It is ridiculous. It is wrong. Parents, educators, congressional people, governors, mayors – all of them should be calling for unity and oneness instead of out there leading the charge that will, if not stopped, totally destroy this country. Then the only thing left to demonstrate about will be the loss of freedom, but that won’t be possible because it won’t exist!

Think about it. This is not a game. It is not a popularity contest. It is about America.

Welcome Back, God!

Today, January 20, 2017, is a day of hope, of renewal, of a new beginning…this is first day of 1,460 days that Donald J. Trump is President of the United States of America. And, this is the first day in 2,920 days that the One True God has been welcome in the White House, in the nation’s capitol, and on the airways of America. What a day this is.

Anyone who saw last night’s pre-inaugural performance had to have their spirits and hearts lifted. After much hoopla about who would and would not perform at the event, America showed up. All three bands were from the heartland of America – Tennessee, Mississippi and Oklahoma – right from the red belly of America where the grass roots bleed red, white and blue.

Following the musical performance towards the close of the evening was the Air Force, I think, choir singing “Battle Hymn of the Republic”! I was actually moved to tears as this song, long since lost from the airwaves of America, was sung with great enthusiasm and gusto while fireworks flew over and above the back of the Lincoln Memorial. America has been awakened from the hazy slumber that we were subjected to for the last eight years.

Today, we watched as the President-Elect and his family went into St. Paul’s Church for a time of prayer and words from the Book of Nehemiah, the Jewish leader who brought is people out of captivity and built a wall! Timely words. Appropriate words for a man who is taking on a colossal task.

The inaugural, itself, was equally impressive as five ministers and one Rabbi offered prayers. No Imam! Yes! No Imam! At long last the confusion of who runs this country is gone – truly, there is a new sheriff in town and he means to clean house! A slight rain shower graced the inaugural just as the newly sworn in President Trump took to the microphone to make his inaugural address. Rain – a blessing, even on an occasion such as this.

The inaugural speech was short but full of promise. Like Lincoln’s, it will be remembered and quoted for generations to come. Perhaps the most poignant line was, “When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.” A statement with power, without prejudice. A statement that needs to be heard and adapted by those who choose to throw stones rather than be a part of the reborn America.

Hope and change have arrived! They arrived on November 8, 2016. They were seated and cemented into the future of America today. They looked up and embraced the God that was once banished to the backroom closet to wait for a new day. This is that new day and we are grateful, ever so grateful. Welcome home, God.
