Shadow of the Holocaust: Prayers of Daniel

These are the days appointed for the remembrance of the Holocaust. The reason given to remember is to prevent it from ever happening again. The truth is: it had happened before and it is happening again. The past is a shadow of the future.

The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was the genocide of the European Jews during World War II. Between 1941 and 1945, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews across German-occupied Europe, around two-thirds of Europe’s Jewish population. The murders were carried out in pogroms and mass shootings; by a policy of extermination through work in concentration camps; and in gas chambers and gas vans in German extermination camps, chiefly Auschwitz, Bełżec, Chełmno, Majdanek, Sobibór, and Treblinka in occupied Poland.

The segregation of Jews in ghettos culminated in the policy of extermination the Nazis called the Final Solution to the Jewish Question… The code number for extermination was ‘6’. The killing continued until the end of World War II in Europe in May 1945.”

Inmates in the German camps were caused to receive an Identification number marked on clothing, or later, tattooed on the skin. These numbers were also used to schedule the trains and keep track of who was on them, where they went, and when they died. The Hollerith punch-card system was used to facilitate this mass deportation.

The Rule of Law is Supreme

“The rule of law is a set of principles, or ideals, for ensuring an orderly and just society… where no one is above the law, everyone is treated equally under the law, everyone is held accountable to the same laws…”

Family Ties: A Special Relationship

There has been a “special relationship” between these two countries since their birth. They represent the two sons of Joseph, son of Israel, Ephraim and Manasseh. Family ties are hard to be broken. These two were born into Egypt in the years of plenty. Their father provided food for everyone in the time of the famine and was greatly admired. Although they’ve had their differences, like brothers, they always settle them and get along with each other in peace. This relationship is now being threatened to come to an end in hostility. It will be a time of Great Tribulation.

Hear the Word of the LORD!

“Hear the Word of the LORD, O you nations, He that scattered Israel will gather him and keep him as a shepherd does his flock. For the LORD has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD … and their soul shall be as a watered garden and they shall not sorrow any more at all.”

Jeremiah 31:10-12

Enoch prophesied…

“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him. These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaks great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.”

Jude 1:14-16

“Behold, he comes with ten thousands of his Holy Ones, to execute judgment upon them and destroy the wicked, and reprove all flesh for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done, and committed against Him.”

The Book of Enoch 2:1

Here is the ancient Book of Enoch being quoted by a New Testament Apostle, the brother of Jesus, telling us what to expect in that day! What more could that book tell us? Who was Enoch? Where did he get his knowledge?

The Pentecost and the Promise of God

This is a day celebrated by both the ‘Jews’ and the ‘Christians’ only in different ways. This being one of the feasts ordained by God for the children of Israel to observe throughout their generations. It marks the fiftieth day (7 weeks plus one day) after the Passover or Exodus of Israel out of Egypt. It is in commemoration of the day Moses received the Tablets of the Law. This was to establish the Covenant between God and Israel. The Feast of Weeks or Shavuot and to bring in the firstfruits of the harvest.

By some, May 31, 2020 will be celebrated as the Pentecost (the Greek word for fifty). Is it just a day to go to church and pay your tithe or is there something else there hidden from view? What is the significance?

Others, from the evenings of May 28 to May 30 will be celebrating the “Feast of Weeks.” It also commemorates the Feast of the Firstfruits when the firstfruits of the wheat harvest were to be brought before God in thanksgiving. Is it just a harvest or tithe of wheat? Is it a time to eat cheese? Or is there something hidden from view? What is the significance?

Reconnecting the Roots of America, Part 1

Finding our Ancestral Roots has become a pastime and an important aspect of life for many lately with the availability of DNA tests and programs to help people reconnect with the roots of their Family Tree. But most can only go back a few generations and a few hundred years at best from their own with which to connect. But what if you could go back millennia? Back to the beginning? Back to the roots!

Ancient Roots of Worship

Looking back at the ways of ancient Egypt, Babylon and Assyria, we find many of those ways still being followed by modern-day people to this day. They’re not aware of their roots. But these practices can provide important clues for those who are searching and want to know their own roots.

As in the Days of Lot

Jesus said what the Day of the Lord would be.

“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Adam is revealed.”

Luke 17:28-30
Sodom suffers the wrath of God

What was going on in the days of Lot?

“The men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.”
