Isa 45:11 ¶ Thus saith the L-RD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens and all their host have I commanded.
I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the L-RD of hosts.
In the game of hide-and-seek the rules clearly state that the seeker is to give fair warning before the hunt begins.
“Ready or not, here I come…”
Isa 40:9 Behold your G-d!
This is no Easter egg hunt for, of, and by idolaters…
Mat15:24 I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
This is Restoration.
A new start would require a restoration, which seems and has been an impossibility for many an age because the “angels” and sons of G-d left both their first and second estates and decided of one accord that “hell aint a bad place to be..”
“New Age” is a concept in vanity and delusion mostly, but may in G-d be a very real possibility and is our only way of procuring and ensuring G-d’s grace and protection for the remainder of our days upon earth. Granting one and all mindful of the Everlasting Covenant the probationary time to repent and make atonement for the ages of apostasy and rebellion in which mankind has dwindled in unbelief and disloyalty.
Mankind obviously fears much but nothing so much as a legitimate restoration; because any such would not justify humanity or the tables of men nor their wicked traditions of the past or their plans for the future of our nations and world.
Alma41:15 That which ye do send out shall return unto you again, and be restored; therefore, the word restoration more fully condemneth the sinner, and justifieth him not at all.
Citizens have supposedly paid annual taxes to a government that had little interest in their welfare much less their justification and salvation.
Returning to G-d might require no more than a one time poll tax of citizens willing and thereafter only require them to offer sacrifices and tithes only when and if they sinned and wished to atone or if their heart so moved them to bring a gift of thanksgiving to G-d to express their joy and gratitude for Him and for the Gift of Liberty and Redemption; as in a season of jubilation, as a way of celebrating life, mourning death, expressing joy at rebirth, accepting obligations of seasons and festivals of joy and gladness.
Otherwise, citizens would be free to be as selfish or mindfully considerate as their free will moved them to be and their reward as immediately gratified as their actions and intentions so desired to make them due.
Mat7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
I once noted our government were composed of many little Caesars each serving his own interest, motivated solely by the fear of death and impelled by pain or in seeking the relief thereof.
It now seemeth to me a government of little Pharaohs, which I must admit is preferable to the former, but is yet a system of permanent slavery to a host of tyrants, who are or may be trying to change their ways with the help of a new leader.
For I would note here, I find Pharaoh nobler than Caesar, but neither is my King.
Now, my beloved brethren, I, Jacob, according to the responsibility which I am under to G-d, to magnify mine office with soberness, and that I might rid my garments of your sins, I come up into the temple this day that I might declare unto you the word of G-d.
And ye yourselves know that I have hitherto been diligent in the office of my calling; but I this day am weighed down with much more desire and anxiety for the welfare of your souls than I have hitherto been.
For, as yet, ye have been obedient unto the word of the L-rd, which I have given unto you.
But, hearken ye unto me, and know that by the help of the all-powerful Creator of heaven and earth I can tell you concerning your thoughts, how that ye are beginning to labor in sin, which sin appeareth very abominable unto me, yea, and abominable unto G-d.
Yea, it grieveth my soul and causeth me to shrink with shame before the presence of my Maker, that I must testify unto you concerning the wickedness of your hearts.
And also it grieveth me that I must use so much boldness of speech concerning you, before your wives and your children, many of whose feelings are exceedingly tender and chaste and delicate before G-d, which thing is pleasing unto G-d;
And it supposeth me that they have come up hither to hear the pleasing word of G-d, yea, the word which healeth the wounded soul.
Wherefore, it burdeneth my soul that I should be constrained, because of the strict commandment which I have received from G-d, to admonish you according to your crimes, to enlarge the wounds of those who are already wounded, instead of consoling and healing their wounds; and those who have not been wounded, instead of feasting upon the pleasing word of G-d have daggers placed to pierce their souls and wound their delicate minds.
But, notwithstanding the greatness of the task, I must do according to the strict commands of G-d, and tell you concerning your wickedness and abominations, in the presence of the pure in heart, and the broken heart, and under the glance of the piercing eye of the Almighty G-d.
Wherefore, I must tell you the truth according to the plainness of the word of G-d. For behold, as I inquired of the L-rd, thus came the word unto me, saying: Jacob, get thou up into the temple on the morrow, and declare the word which I shall give thee unto this people.
And now, my brethren, this is the word which I declare unto you, that many of you have begun to search for [riches].
And the hand of providence hath smiled upon you most pleasingly, that you have obtained many riches; and because some of you have obtained more abundantly than that of your brethren ye are lifted up in the pride of your hearts, and wear stiff necks and high heads because of the costliness of your apparel, and persecute your brethren because ye suppose that ye are better than they.
And now, my brethren, do ye suppose that G-d justifieth you in this thing? I say unto you, Nay. But he condemneth you, and if ye persist in these things his judgments must speedily come unto you.
O that he would show you that he can pierce you, and with one glance of his eye he can smite you to the dust!
O that he would rid you from this iniquity and abomination. And, O that ye would listen unto the word of his commands, and let not this pride of your hearts destroy your souls!
Think of your brethren like unto yourselves, and be familiar with all and free with your substance, that they may be rich like unto you.
But before ye seek for riches, seek ye for the kingdom of G-d
And after ye have obtained a hope in Christ ye shall obtain riches if ye seek them, and ye will seek them for the intent to do good—to clothe the naked, and to feed the hungry, and to liberate the captive, and administer relief to the sick and the afflicted.
And now, my brethren, I have spoken unto you concerning pride; and those of you which have afflicted your neighbor, and persecuted him because ye were proud in your hearts, of the things which G-d hath given you, what say ye of it?
Do ye not suppose that such things are abominable unto him who created all flesh? And the one being is as precious in his sight as the other. And all flesh is of the dust; and for the selfsame end hath he created them, that they should keep his commandments and glorify him forever.
And now I make an end of speaking unto you concerning this pride. And were it not that I must speak unto you concerning a grosser crime, my heart would rejoice exceedingly because of you.
But the word of G-d burdens me because of your grosser crimes. For thus saith the L-rd: This people begin to wax in iniquity; they understand not the scriptures, for they seek to excuse themselves in committing whoredoms, because of the things which were written concerning David, and Solomon his son.
David and Solomon truly had many wives and concubines, which thing was abominable before me, saith the L-rd.
Wherefore, thus saith the L-rd, I have led this people forth out of the land of Jerusalem, by the power of mine arm, that I might raise up unto me a righteous branch from the fruit of the loins of Joseph.
Wherefore, I the L-rd G-d will not suffer that this people shall do like unto them of old.
Wherefore, my brethren, hear me, and hearken to the word of the L-rd: For there shall not any man among you have save it be one wife; and concubines he shall have none;
For I, the L-rd G-d, delight in the chastity of women. And whoredoms are an abomination before me; thus saith the L-RD of Hosts.
Wherefore, this people shall keep my commandments, saith the L-RD of Hosts, or cursed be the land for their sakes.
For if I will, saith the L-RD of Hosts, raise up seed unto me, I will command my people; otherwise, they shall hearken unto these things.
For I, the L-rd, have seen the sorrow, and heard the mourning of the daughters of my people in the land of Jerusalem, yea, and in all the lands of my people, because of the wickedness and abominations of their husbands.
And I will not suffer, saith the L-RD of Hosts, that the cries of the fair daughters of this people, which I have led out of the land of Jerusalem, shall come up unto me against the men of my people, saith the L-RD of Hosts.
For they shall not lead away captive the daughters of my people because of their tenderness, save I shall visit them with a sore curse, even unto destruction; for they shall not commit whoredoms, like unto them of old, saith the L-RD of Hosts.
And now behold, my brethren, ye know that these commandments were given to our father, Lehi; wherefore, ye have known them before; and ye have come unto great condemnation; for ye have done these things which ye ought not to have done.
Behold, ye have done greater iniquities than the Lamanites, our brethren. Ye have broken the hearts of your tender wives, and lost the confidence of your children, because of your bad examples before them; and the sobbing of their hearts ascend up to G-d against you. And because of the strictness of the word of G-d, which cometh down against you, many hearts died, pierced with deep wounds.
Chiefly, it has not been the practice of our government in its history to restore heritages and properties which it has ‘legally’ seized, acquisition or repossessed under questionable circumstances and faultier reasoning and guidance. Heeding heretical dispositions and accusations; family feuds, and what have you, stemming from a lack or total withdrawal of ethical integrity.
In truth and to be fair, the Obama administration and his consortium of politicians; the brother had no idea what sort of stink pit he were getting himself into when he made his run for president, or perhaps he did. I’m not his judge. I only see progress/improvement where there was complete rebellion and corruption of state before him.
And so, hats off. It is yet a far cry from what the L-RD intends or would in way of restoration, I believe. But the man’s history is still and yet unfolding and so the opportunities born in this age could outshine all former dreams and aspirations of state and nation before he is through.
Just another well or ill-bred white guy saying he’ll do better than the guy we have is no solution to the problem…It really isn’t up to them anyway. It’s up to Us. I’d rather see Obama stay in office really…I don’t need another white guy with money and a convincing schtick…At least with Obama, we all struggle together…I fear a Police State that white people may impose to enforce their interest and protection of property/possessions… At least give me a Jew! I’m just shootin’ from a broken hip here… A Police State is already under way…At least it is handicapped by Obama for now. Big money whites don’t hear the poor and needy because they have never really been poor and needy. I should say gentile kings and princes wouldn’t know. And I think “contempt upon princes” was what our age is all about and what HaShem intended. We all needed to fail and flail about in our refuse for a bit to teach us what humanity is supposed to be. Only when we have all realized we are filthy and all our deeds are filthy rags, may we be made clean by His Spirit and our intention made right with G-d. A Christian Social movement led to Nazi reign. The politics of Jesus, however, have little to do with modern Christianity as we know and understand it.
Obama may be a gentile but he’s also black, and I think that helps, as they and Jews know the afflictions of racism and what it takes to overcome when you are already counted a disadvantaged minority and lesser human being by prideful whites, the nobler of whom may understand the Law and live by it, but also use it to discriminate and take advantage more often than is good or right.
The ONLY Way to cure the deficit is by cancelling it (in some way and to some extent) and starting anew. Restoration is in due and long over due order…Bricks without straw…Our humanity must be about G-d, then everything will fall into place…Use His word to establish a right and true Republic and we may be on to something, otherwise, it’s apostasy, idolatry and manipulation unto destruction..which as the Scriptures state “loometh.”
Our current day economy was created by magic, so why not? Playing ‘Voo-doo economics..’ got us in a whole heap of trouble and debt.
Restoration would restore those principles and promises first established in building an economy that niether borrowed nor owed anything to any nation, but was due tribute and was capable of a grand amount of charity.
Race has a lot to do with our imaginations, and the way our country was built and has gone astray…’Fiscal responsibility’ is a completely moot term…there is no such thing. If you’re in it for or make it about the money, you’re not going to make it into the Kingdom…You’re going to bring the Force which people fear and establish a ‘Regime.’ White or black, Nazi or zealot… Without Faith and the Law of Moses/Gospel of Christ, you’re going to fail…
Isa 58:10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: And the L-RD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
“Money is like fire; it can warm and comfort- or it can consume and destroy.” Etz Hayim Commentary
And now big business is trying to pour some cash into government to restore the nation and call it charity. The kind of charity McDonald’s and Heineken etc., may provide is not the sort that will restore a nation, but only further degrade and handicap it. Putting our trust in a drunk red-headed clown is what got us into deep debt in the first place, no doubt.
That’s not but arrogance…’I give to the poor’…So what? they are still poor. And the reason they are poor is because they know not that which may make them rich.
Rev 3:17-19 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
By contrast, who was counted as rich?
Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but [are] the synagogue of Satan.
Y’shua’s ideas are absolutely extreme and I love and live them all…A phony bailout has done nothing but sink the ship faster…There is only one way out. And building with bull dung isn’t it…Isaiah was extreme too, walked around naked for years…while politicians wreaked havoc beating people over the head for taxes undue any man.
Handouts aren’t handouts if we are told to use them constructively and do so. That is bricks with straw…
Lev22:31¶ Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the L-RD.
The point is, ladies and gentleman, that charity, for lack of a better word, is good. charity is right, charity works. charity clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Charity, in all of its forms; charity in life, in money, in love, Wisdom has marked the upward surge of mankind. And charity, you mark my words, will save that malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you very much.
1Cr 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
It’s all about possessing the right intention…whether rich or poor… Mat 19:21 tells us all the price we must pay…Can’t be a part of the solution by being part of the problem…It’s just a matter of merry-go-rounding until we cut right through…Be happy when you may , weep with those who weep, laugh with those who laugh…I wish all those running for the office of the presidency the best, I just haven’t heard anything new from US politics since Lincoln was shot.
Keep the government accountable, and be careful whom you trust in everyday life…Make friends by trial. The Book of Sirach says something wise about avoiding giving yourself away to rich people, because a lot of people, I mean the majority will just use you up until there is nothing left…I’m as gaunt and thin as a rod to prove it! When I walk sideways, you can’t see me!
If we’re all busted from the start, we may avoid another great depression and turn it into a great rejoicing/reconciliation…It is nice to know that the Government is really bankrupt, that is a solid defense in debtor’s court…that really can’t be overturned unless man lie…But we do need to build up something and the USA is what we ought to build up in truth, as debtor’s to G-d. It is how we built the nation at Liberty in the first place. We really can’t do so unless we start from scratch, if men are to be counted honest at all…We’re in a tailspin, and I saw an eagle flying very low to the ground the other day…
Let not all your base belong unto them. Cause them to have reason to labor and fly high, that our Right may soar and our strength be renewed in righteousness.
Psalm 103:5-6 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good [things; so that] thy youth is renewed like the eagles’. The L-RD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
Whatever the color of Mr. Obama’s skin and country of origin, I do believe him to be a son of nobles and of more noble intention and mindset than we may have had in office since Lincoln were president.
There is little doubt in my mind that he is NOT a bastard son as so many of our white presidents have proved to be.
Nor is he a supplanter or horseleech.
Nevertheless, his breeding and pedigree aside, I do not think he is a suitable choice to be the leader of the “free world” nor of a Reigning Republic.
However, I do prefer him to any white bread, inbred son of European descent who is not in favor of New Izrael and Zionism, the United States of America’s true National Heritage and Destiny.
He is a good stumbling block, proving our government to be illegitimate and wanting in integrity which he has so far supplied and encouraged among our members of congress, etc.
1Ti 6:3-12 ¶ If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of G-d, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
Freedom is not something one may purchase, but an agreement between men to uphold certain standards of liberty and secure national dignity through ethical guidance and righteous counsel.
In other words, striving to establish Zion and keep the L-RD’s covenant with His Chosen through their preaching and teaching unto enlightenment and edification, in order to liberate and prosper all nations.
In a country where no man has nor perhaps ought to have a sure portion or heritage, it is of tantamount importance that the L-RD, and therefore every man, does have a House and Heritage in our midst, thereby granting unto all men of every nation an everlasting heritage and portion and that through no governmental power, kingdom or authority of the world should ever be permitted to threaten or take away that sacred responsibility as long as there be men to abide faithful to Him, willing to fulfill whatever those rights and responsibilities that prove him to be a son of G-d may be; namely, mitzvahs, acts of kindness, meritorious deeds of charity or valor and vigilance of character- to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, enable all willing to put into practice those gifts or talents they have been gifted with and seen fit to use for the sake of showing forth G-d’s divine attributes in the world, asking nothing of those who have chosen not to do so but the tolerance and understanding of the Rule Golden.
Mat7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
Contrary to popular belief, “taking what they’re giving, cuz you’re working for a living..” is of absolutely no use to your fellow man.

“Stripped of delusions about our accomplishments, we are ready to pursue genuine accomplishments.” Rav Hirsch
For instance, the deterioration of a building, town or city does not necessarily mean it is not being “built up,” “reinforced,” or is uncared for. On the contrary, it may be the most confident and important sign that a place is beloved and lived in in the most effectual and zealous manner intelligent beings may “desire” to be; an ardent undertaking indeed.
We hold this truth to be self-evident, “as all human beings are equal before G-d, there is to be one standard contribution from all to be neither exceeded nor reduced.

“Happy are you who sow beside all waters. Who let the feet of the Ox and the Ass range freely.” Isaiah 32:20
Advancements in the fields of science, technology and education, if not bridled by a Chosen people willing to live their lives simply and hardly benefiting from those rewards, but rather sustained by their own fruits, living and prospering apart or in contrast to society and its norms are the best sign that any such human endeavors have been of any benefit to the world at all.
Again, I return to the Jacob/Joseph story and ask what made Joseph’s Egypt of any worth to the world? What made the Roman Empire so impressive? It were the existence of a Goshen at the center or anywhere within its Realm that made either/or of any real magnificence or significance whatsoever, and that is what I believe the American Dream is all about sans the greater pomp and hurt of either monstrosity, thereby averting the great atrocity that either may have been guilty of. Uniquely enabling either tour de force to preserve and protect against all disaccreditation.
Whatever her crimes against humanity and G-d, the American Dream, Zion’s Heritage, Zion’s Reputation, Zion’s Right must never be questioned nor besmirched, belittled nor slandered in any way that does not reveal Her essential and everlasting worth to the nations who honor Her or the citizens who enjoy the privilege of living within Her borders and ’neath Her glorious banners, the same our forefather’s set up at divine liberty so many moons ago.
