Greetings and peace to you, all!

I'm not sure what happened in the link above but it was random - there was a particular article I intended to link. Ah, well.

I'll link this one since it's more current:

https://www.jewishpress.com/news/middle-east/lebanon/mda-prepares-for-power-outages-plans-doomsday-protocols-ahead-of-war-with-hezbollah/2024/06/10/

I hope everyone has been given ears to hear and are able to stay awake!

May the underserved kindness and mercy of our great God and Father, JaH Who Breathes... and the love and peace of His precious Son and Chosen/Holy One, our dear, dear Lord, JaH'eShua, be upon you ALL and upon your dear, dear households!

Your servant, sister, and a slave of Christ,

Shel

Hey Shelby!

I don`t think there`s much to worry about...
Those people have been throwing rocks at each other and stealing each others goats for thousands of years..LOL!!
It`s probably not going to change anytime soon...It won`t have much effect here other than protests...
There`s No Goats to Steal...

I hear you, dear Sher'f (peace to you, dear friend!)... and to be truthful, which we always strive to be when there's no reason not to be, this time it was cows and sheep, not goats - LOLOL!):

https://www.jewishpress.com/multimedia/video-picks/cows-and-sheep-stolen-on-october-7-up-for-sale-in-gaza-for-eid-al-adha-sacrifice/2024/06/13/

Thing is, the "rocks" are bigger now and far, far more lethal. Or will be at some point. It's not just the rocks (technically OR literally) that should have our attention, though, dear friend - it's what the world will (eventually) decide to "do" about the underlying basis for all of the "rock" throwing: religion.

Of course, the issue isn't REALLY religion; it's land. More precisely, [b]who should have the land that was:

• Taken from the Canaanites/Phoenicians by JaH via conquer by the Israelites (those descendants of Abraham through his son Isaac and Isaac's son, JaH'Kub); then
• Given to the Israelites; then
• Lost by the Israelites to the Romans, first by the Samaritans (Samaria), then by the Jews (Judea), the latter occurring over the course of 6 CE-132 CE; then
• Captured by the Muslims and taken from the Romans in 636-641 CE; then
• Overtaken (well, Jerusalem, anyway) by (so-called) "christians" during the Crusades; then
• Recaptured and ruled over by many different Muslim factions; until
• Captured by the Turks and put under rule of the Ottoman Empire; then
• Put under British rule when Britain defeated the Ottoman Empire in WWI.

Under the various League of Nations mandates published in the 1920's, the land was divided between the Jews and the Palestinian/Arabs, the latter being given what is known today as the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, which the Jews should NOT be settling (i.e., building houses and housing projects, etc.) in and so it is referred to as "occupied territory" (meaning, not given to but still being occupied nonetheless by the Jews), which is what the Palestinians and Arabs have a problem with (in addition to the land they were removed from which was given to the Jews). In "occupying" the Gaza Strip, the Israelis are forcing their way onto Palestinian/Arab land.

I digress.

It's NOT religion... but religion has involved itself/allowed itself to be involved/used and so, when the "rocks" hit the fan, it is religion that will be turned on (as prophesied). And while it's not the rocks, per se, that should have our attention, but what folks will do because of the rocks, it is because of specific "rocks" and so, we might want to pay attention. For instance, to the progress, changes, and developments related to these "rocks":

https://emetonline.org/resource/iran-violations-since-jcpoa/

The rock-throwing has gone on for millennia, yes. It only took one rock, though, to bring down Goliath, yes?

We can focus on the pebbles being tossed back and forth, dear Sher'f... or we can (try and) keep our eye on David's sling. Got to be awake to do that, though.

Peace to you (and dear Auntie and the Fam), and may JaH and Christ bless and keep you ALL!

YSFS of Christ,

Shelb

I am watching and waiting, I am surprised that something hasn’t happened yet that will change the whole world. It’s horrific what is going on over there in Palestine and the Gaza Strip, those poor people and all over greed and politics and arrogance. I blame religion for a lot of problems as it divides people and has and is causing so much endless pain and suffering and destruction. I will be happy to see it gone, it could not come soon enough. I am simplifying it all as its one big tangled complicated mess we are in at this point in time.

Greetings and peace to you, dear Zoe (and good to "hear" from you, dear sister!).

Simplifying or not it's a terrible situation, yes, as is everywhere else in the world people are killing other people and particular children, non-military, non-activist, non-anything "FOR" war/armed conflict (well, any kind of conflict that ends up in the death of folks who have absolutely nothing to do with the issue or the decisions related to it, wherever it is).

Be it children or adults, 2 here, 10 there, 10,000 there, or more than a million, there... death is our (mankind's) common ENEMY and it is not only shameful but immoral of those of us (mankind) whose works further that of the enemy of every one of us. That whole "my enemy's enemy is my friend" turned backward ("Hey, death is THEIR enemy, too, so let's make it/him OUR friend!").

What can we do? Very little as far as this world is concerned, yes, but staying awake as long as we can, NOT looking for signs, etc., but watching and, eventually, not shrinking back from whatever may come as a result... because we know who WE belong to.

Our dear Lord didn't refer to it as a "distress" or "tribulation" for nothing, though, so...

Anyway, good to hear from you, please hold onto your courage, and may JaH and Christ continue to bless and keep you, dear John, and your entirely household... to time indefinite!

Your servant, sister, and a slave of Christ,

Shel
