“Katrina” - The Day God turned away His Face from America
The Catastrophe of Hurricane Katrina upon America
“How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from Me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart daily?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?”
“I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
You who fear the Lord, praise Him! All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him and Fear Him, all you offspring of Israel!
For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; nor has He hidden His face from him;
But when he cried to Him, He heard.
With their minds numb and reeling from the catastrophic impact of Hurricane Katrina on the city of New Orleans and the surrounding countryside, the eyes of Americans and indeed the whole world are in a state of emotional shock. American and indeed the whole world are now facing the Biblical truth, the “Time of God’s judgment has come.” Will this nation become repentant or continue to slip into further denial and eventual anger against their God?
This generation has never seen American refugees except for the generation that went through the Great Depression. For a people, who are proud to think that they are the ‘chosen’ nation of God and proudly carry the motto, “In God we Trust,” are now asking the question, “Is God abandoning America?”
Throughout the week, after the mega-storm hit directly over Lake Ponchartrain to the east of New Orleans, media commentators have been using biblical words such as “catastrophe”, “apocalypse” and “Biblical proportion” to describe the purification process of new Orleans as the “Sin City of the South”, where lay the “Mother Lode of America’s Oil”, this nation’s “root of all evil”. Here was the “Queen of the South” whose abandoned ones now describe their lives as descending into the “pits of hell”. Here is where the tourists of America went to partake of all the abominations that the God of Israel abhors: gambling, prostitution, topless and transsexual clubs, alcoholism, pedophilia and homosexuality.
On the very day when the Bush administration and the United States State Department’s Condoleezza Rice completed their initial mandate to Sharon that Israel withdraw from the Gaza Strip, Hurricane Katrina spawned herself in the Mid Atlantic.
As the Sharon government finished the unilateral Gaza Disengagement in Gush Katif, and left them as refugees in the Land which the Lord of hosts gave them, the first chapter in the destruction of New Orleans, the “Oil Drilling Capital” of the South, left hundreds of thousands of refugees to be scattered across the land of America. An estimated 10,000 Jewish residents were forcibly cast out of their homes to please the globalist’s bid to force “peace” upon the Land of Israel. This was the land that the League of Nations, the United Nations and the God of Abraham promised would be the “Land of Promise” for the descendants of Abraham’s son, Isaac, forever.
Now, the city of New Orleans is preparing to announce the deaths of upwards to 10,000 citizens living in the city. With about 100,000 residents of New Orleans are living homeless in shelters and an estimated 1,000,000 Louisiana residents were cast out of their homes by the fury of Hurricane Katrina.
Like an unnatural and a very precocious child, Katrina became the “Mother of all mega-Storms.” She started unnaturally in the region of the Bahamas rather than off the coast of Africa. Within three days she developed into a hurricane and hit the only part of Florida not affected by the last six hurricanes that hit that state. With a warning punch to the pleasure city of Miami, Florida, Katrina headed towards her catastrophic landing what is now known as American’s “Soulless Capital.”
In this holocaust, America’s rich fled and the rest of the city; the poor, the infirmed and the rejects of society were abandoned in the descending pit of central New Orleans. Those that were rescued, over 45,000 were sent to survive in the “prison of hell” at the former pleasure sport palace of America’s Superdome. No food, no water, plugged up sewage, dead bodies stacked like wood while America became the laughing stock of the world. This was the land of democracy, the land of freedom and justice where all have equality in the pursuit of happiness. The stage has now been set for the fall of the “Great Horn” of the Golden Internationale; the name Pope Paul John II called the western globalists of North America and Europe who were seeking one world domination.
The Hurricane Katrina was not just a souped up regular hurricane. Many in denial would have it to have been caused by a man-induced global warming. There are many signatures that were stranger to fiction that surrounded this human and economic disaster that many bring America to her knees.
The fact that the God of Israel is Sovereign over the universe is a given to believers of the God of Israel. BibleSearchers continue to search as to whether this apocalyptic storm will be a part of God’s final judgment call to America and all mankind.
Was Katrina a messenger from the Lord of hosts like Nebuchadnezzar and Cyrus the Great of old? Was it not Nebuchadnezzar, the “great horn” of Babylon that was the apocalyptic destroyer of the degenerating culture of God’s people, the Jews? Was it not Cyrus the Great, the restorer and redeemer of the Jewish people, also the emperor who established a One World Order that spread from the Western lands of Greece to the Far East? In spite of both of these rulers being ruthless dictators, were they not either emissaries or ‘anointed’ agents of the Most High God?
Are we willing to accept the Sovereignty of the Almighty One that He is controlling the pulse of this earth and the breaths of the nations that surround Israel? Are we willing to accept that the purifying fire of the Spirit of God will be exacted also upon the lost tribes of the House of Israel that are still scattered around the whole earth? This purification will take place in America as well as every nation on this planet.
If Russia imposes her will upon Israel, she will be judged. If China imposes her will upon Israel, she will be judged. If Britain, France, Italy, Spain or Germany impose their will upon Israel, they will be judged. If America imposes her will upon Israel, America will be judged. If Israel continues to defy the God of her father, Abraham, she will be judged.
As the world watched in awe and amazement, Hurricane Katrina, a super-storm of mammoth proportions headed towards the oil neck juggler of the American economy. The storm warnings for Katrina was downgraded by the American government’s weather forecasters and media from a Category 5 hurricane, with winds in excess of 175 miles per hour to a Category 4 hurricane with wind speeds about 155 mph. Some suspect that this was done in order to minimize its feared impact by the American public. Russian scientists watching with intent reported a different tale on August 31, 2005, in an article titled, “Catastrophic Disaster of ‘Biblical Proportions’ Strikes United States, Entire Geography of Region Altered as Super Storm Rated as Worst In Recorded History.”
What does It Mean - “Russian Scientists are reporting this morning that the Massive Super Storm striking the United States was the worst in all of recorded history, not only to the unprecedented geographical expanse of this Super Storm, but also to its high winds, and were estimated at being over 217 miles per hour. The tidal surge preceding this Super Storm has been estimated by Russian Scientists as being over 50 feet in height which their reports state would have reached into their inland areas in some places up to 3 miles.
These reports further state that a tidal surge of this magnitude has the potential to ‘level’ virtually ever human made structure in its path, leaving a ‘trail of devastation of Biblical Proportions’, and displacing even the most anchored mammoth structures, including oil platforms. To the American City of New Orleans, which lies entirely under sea level, these reports state that an incredible disaster awaits them as their drainage canals are flooding into this city as well as numerous breakages in their protective levee system.”
But it was not into the city of New Orleans that Katrina was destined to establish a direct hit. She glanced off quickly to the east. To some this was providential and to others it was pure evil. The reality suggests that it may have induced more damage to the oil rigs in the Gulf and the destructive undermining of the vast levee systems that protected the city from the waters of Lake Ponchartrain to the east. The winds toppled the 5 mile long causeway that went to the eastern shores where a vast number of skilled and managerial workers for the city lived. The city of New Orleans is now isolated from her main eastern suburbia. Swamps to the west, the only habitable land lies accessible now to the north of the city. One thing that is known today, a good portion of the New Orleans proper may be forever wiped off the maps as a catastrophically induced toxic waste land.
Not since 1953 when the Great Disaster in the Netherlands occurred has a flooded city had to face such an epic disaster as reported in the “1953 – Flood Disaster” by Holland Ring.
The Holland Disaster - "In February 1953 the Netherlands faced disaster when the dikes protecting the southwest of the country were breached by the joint onslaught of a hurricane-force northwesterly wind and exceptionally high spring tides. The flood came in the night without warning, a fateful combination of freak high tides and gale-force winds that killed 1,835 people. Almost 200,000 hectares of land was swamped, 3,000 homes and 300 farms destroyed, and 47,000 heads of cattle drowned. It was The Netherlands' worst disaster for 300 years. Flooding caused by storm surges were nothing new to the Netherlands, but this time the nation was stunned by the extent of a disaster unparalleled for centuries."
The concept that global weather is being manipulated is gradually gaining a wider hearing in the American public. Who is doing the controlling is the one of the big unanswered questions. BibleSearchers suggest that Pope John Paul II with his global vision of the Three Internationales: Golden, Red and the Black will be the starting point to consider the options. Cutting Edge Newsletter brings some insight to this dialogue with their article, “If the Russians are controlling the global weather for the Illuminati, it makes sense that American officials know this fact, and are cooperating with it.” In this article, a point of interest has to be the name of the hurricane herself, Katrina. Reported on this article was a News Brief Video recorded on September 2, 2005 and reported on Fox News Video: "At this time, we would like to update you on the current situation in the Gulf Coast states which have been afflicted by Hurricane Katerina..."
In this article, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said the following, "At this time, we would like to update you on the current situation in the Gulf Coast states which have been afflicted by Hurricane Katerina..." The questions that are asked, did the Homeland Security Secretary make a mistake or not know the real name of Hurricane Katrina? Rather, was this a “Freudian slip” because he knew that behind the scenes the Russians through their KGB and rouge Japanese scientists operating in Russia were responsible for controlling American weather?
The name equivalent to the English name Katrina in Russian is Katerina. One origin of the name of Katrina is derived from the Greek goddess “Hecate”, who was the “goddess of witchcraft and tombs” according to "Behind The Name: The Etymology and History of First Names." Here in the city most known for her affection towards witchcraft, Satanism, Voodoo worship, demons, the underworld and her above the ground tombs was New Orleans. According to the etymology of names, Katerina from which the name Katrina is derived is:
Behind the Name – “From the Greek name Αικατερινη (Aikaterine). The etymology is debated: it could derive from the earlier Greek name ‘Εκατερινη (Hekaterine), which came from ‘εκατερος (hekateros) “each of the two”; it could derive from the name of the goddess HECATE; it could be related to Greek αικια (aikia) “torture”; or it could be from a Coptic name meaning “my consecration of your name”.
The Romans associated it with Greek καθαρος (katharos) “pure” and changed their spelling from Katerina to Katharina to reflect this. The name belonged to a 4th-century saint and martyr from Alexandria who was tortured on the famous Catherine wheel. Another saint by this name was Catherine of Siena, a 14th-century mystic. This name was also borne by two empresses of Russia, including Catherine the Great, and by three of Henry VIII’s wives.”
If we consider again the judgments of the Lord of hosts, must we also consider that the God of Israel is intent to purify this land of its imbedded centers of demonism?
As strange and preposterous as this may seem, the evidence is gradually becoming aware by the American public that evil men are doing evil things to this earth. It was in 1997, when William Cohen, Secretary of Defense made this statement:
Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997
counterterrorism conference - "Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism
whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through
the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious
minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror
upon other nations. It's real, and that's the
reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so
important." [Secretary of
Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by
former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense
William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass
Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997].
This fact has been supported by the Scalar weather forecaster Scott Ritter, who made these statements in an article called, The Tsunami that was Katrina, posted on August 30, 2005;
Scott Ritter – Scalar Weather Forecaster - Ivan and Katrina, these are both very Russian sounding names. It has been established that the former Soviet Union (fSU) developed and boasted of weather modification technology during the 1960's and 70's with deployment against the United States coming in 1976 with the audible arrival of the woodpecker grid. These weather operations continue to this day.
This nation has not faced an economic crisis like the one that Katrina will spark in the days and months ahead. But that is one of the reasons Katrina was guided along the path that we all watched. This path has resulted in maximum damage to the energy infrastructure, transportation infrastructure and to the psyche of those that are susceptible to further storms this year and in the years to follow. Oh New Orleans!”
Understand fully the words that Scott Ritter writes, “Katrina was guided along the path that we all watched. This path has resulted in maximum damage to the energy infrastructure, transportation infrastructure and to the psyche of those that are susceptible to further storms this year and in the years to follow.” He goes on to explain in his article, “Finding some Pieces to the Puzzle:”
Scott Ritter - A battle in the skies is waged daily. Some battles are won and others lost. We yet know not which.
For years this massive global project has been under way, but only now is it making it to the forefront of the consciousness of those with curious minds.
These open minds know that every belief system fails; and only fails, under the weight of new truthful information. This is how progress is made, slowly and often only with the passing of a generation of humankind.
It would appear to be an indelible human trait that the 'truth' about most issues usually goes through three distinct phases known colloquially as "the three stages of truth". During the first stage, the issue goes unnoticed and is ignored. The second stage is characterized by a period of vehement denial. The third stage witnesses the truth about the issue being recognized as self-evident. The intent of my work here is to skip directly to this third stage of truth. Time does not allow for us to bicker over the obvious.”
So also is the battle of the mind about the truth about the Lord of hosts; ignoring the truth, denial and finally self-revelation. Whether we want to accept the facts, the war between Satan and the God of Israel is being played out today within our lives and within the boundaries of our country. This whole battle is about God’s right to the Land of Israel to do whatever His divine Will wants to do. Satan is also in the battle to control the Land of Israel. He also wants to control Zion, the place that God anchored His creative energy for this earth on Jerusalem, the solar rex capital of this planet. Without Israel, terrorism would not be in existence today.
The facts about Scalar and HAARP as weapons used by the United States, Russian, Israel and other rouge nations or groups on this earth was revealed on February 2005 in the BibleSearcher’s Reflection article titled, “The Asian Indonesian Tsunami and the Globalist’s bid to Control the Nations of the Earth.” It was from the pioneering work of Lt. Colonel Tom Bearden that insight into electromagnetic weapons (EM) first became known to the public.
BibleSearchers Reflections – “It is the intent, according to Bearden, of the Yakuza/Shinrikyo team (Japan) to begin a systematic destruction of the American electrical power grid beginning in 2006/7 with the intent by progressive catastrophes to cause the collapse of the United States economy and like dominos the other western globalist powers a year later. The ‘terrorist’s assets’ have already been inserted on American soil. They are prepared for the command to use them in a cyber war against the American people.
In the days of the “cold war” the concept of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) was the deterrence of two equally large nations who neither wanted their own countries to be destroyed kept the world free of nuclear war. Today in an era in which small groups who have no national interests and do not care to die for their evil desires upon any unsuspecting public are not deterred by any negotiation or geo-political pacts. Here at the time of the end we face a world terrorized by: EM psycho-manipulation, Islamic jihad on American soil, North Korea who has now proclaimed that they do have nuclear weapons, Iran possibly already has nuclear weapons and India and Pakistan who are at an ‘eyeball to eyeball’ standoff in nuclear retaliation. Who will blink first?
If terrorists actually strike against the power base and vital interests of the Golden Internationale and especially against the Great Satan called America, then will we see the use of destructive natural phenomenon in the form of EM weapons such as HAARP and Scalar? The nations of the earth do have the potential to take control of the “Acts of God” and in their own evil intent force their control for global domination by natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes and the induction of weather and climate control by global weather manipulation.”
Within two weeks of Hurricane Katrina, the eastern seaboard of the United States will meet the gale force winds of Hurricane Ophelia. The full story is yet to be told of Hurricane Ophelia but Weather forecaster Scott Ritter on September 6, 2005 wrote this memo-dialogue:
Scott Ritter – Scalar Weather Forecaster - What we witnessing is the manufactured development of Ophelia....Attached is visible image from Ophelia at 11:15AM Pacific time… The cloud tops are bright/washed out as the sun is overhead.
I see many anchoring holes, which are conduits for energy that will be used to develop many intense thunderstorm cells as Ophelia strengthens further today.”
What is known as will be discussed later, Hurricane Ophelia is affecting the eastern coast of America while Operation Ophelia setting up its international operations in North America.
Gush Kat(If) à Gulf Kat(rain)
A message was recently sent by Barry Chamish, a secular Jewish reporter in Jerusalem to his subscribers. He has been foremost in revealing the power and control that the western globalists have in the Land of Israel. This short note revealed the headline that is captioned above.
Barry Chamish – “I had just finished the article
proving that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in New York organized the
destruction of Gush Katif, causing thousands of refugees and homeless. I sat down on the
sofa to rest and was struck with an image. I don't understand these
things.” Barry Chamish
Joe Farah’s World Net Daily picked up on this same email and published it in an article called, “Did God send Katrina as revenge over Gaza? The Eerie parallels between forced evacuations spark speculation” on the largest internet news service in this nation.
World Net Daily – “Perhaps the first to publicly connect Katrina to the Gaza evacuation was famed Israeli conspiracy theorist Barry Chamish, who sent a mass e-mail noting, "GUsh is like GUlf, and KATif is like KATrina. If you take 'KAT' from KATif and KATrina, you are left with 'IF' and 'RAIN.' If you support Gush Katif evacuation, it will rain." Chamish told WND yesterday: "Simple human beings cannot fully understand what is going on, but the events certainly must be connected. It's statistically impossible to have two such great natural disastrous like the recent tsunami in Asia and Katrina right after each other. This is the hand of God. He is saying something."
Farah’s World Net Daily continues to explore the international rise in the perception that the finger of the Lord of hosts is directly involved in the affairs of the nations of this earth. As the God of Israel is gently pushing the nations of the earth to the day of their final judgment, He is using the forces of the natural world in which humans have always known to be the “Acts of God”, to awaken the global human perception to the difference between righteousness and evil. The article above continues;
World Net Daily – “While most religious authorities seem to agree one cannot discern the intentions of God, there has been talk in some circles here and on the Internet the storm that turned parts of the Gulf Coast into a disaster zone, prompting hundreds of thousands to evacuate their homes and possibly causing upwards of 10,000 deaths, was thrust upon the U.S. for its support of the Gaza evacuation. "Katrina is a consequence of the destruction of [Gaza's] Gush Katif [slate of Jewish communities] with America's urging and encouragement," Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Lewin, executive director of the Rabbinic Congress for Peace, told WND. "The U.S. should have discouraged Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon from implementing the Gaza evacuation rather than pushing for it and pressuring Israel into concessions." Lewin is one of many rabbis in Israel and abroad who have been making similar statements both in private and in speeches to their congregations.
Rabbi Joseph Garlitzky, head of the international Chabad Lubavitch movement's Tel Aviv synagogue, recounted for WND a pulpit speech he gave this past Sabbath: "We don't have prophets who can tell us exactly what are God's ways, but when we see something so enormous as Katrina, I would say [President] Bush and [Secretary of State Condoleezza] Rice need to make an accounting of their actions, because something was done wrong by America in a big way. And here there are many obvious connections between the storm and the Gaza evacuation, which came right on top of each other. No one has permission to take away one inch of the land of Israel from the Jewish people." Abraham, the biblical father of the Jews, received this promise from God in the book of Genesis: "I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."
One week before Katrina made landfall, Israel carried out the evacuation of 9,500 residents from Gush Katif and four Samaria communities. Residents were forced from their homes by Israeli troops, some dragged away kicking and screaming and placed on buses that took them from the area. The majority of former Katif residents are currently homeless while the Israeli government struggles to find permanent housing solutions.

The Gaza withdrawal was backed by the U.S. government. Some Middle East analysts and senior Israeli politicians entirely attributed the evacuation plan to pressure coming from the American establishment.
"I welcome the disengagement plan," stated Bush immediately following the announcement of the Gaza evacuation. "These steps will mark real progress toward realizing the vision I set forth in June 2002 of two states living side by side in peace and security."
Now, Garlitzky and many others here and on the Internet are pointing to what they call eerie similarities between Katrina and the evacuation of Gush Katif, including parallels in events, names and numbers:
· Close to 10,000 Jews were expelled from their homes in the Gaza Strip and parts of northern Samaria. Katrina's death toll is now expected to reach at least 10,000.
· America's population ratio to Israel is about 50:1. Ten thousand Jews who lost their Gaza homes is the equivalent of about 500,000 Americans who are now reported to be displaced as result of Katrina.
· Gaza's Jewish communities were located in Israel's southern coastal region; America's southern coastal region now lies in ruins.
· The U.S. government called on Louisiana residents to evacuate their homes ahead of the storm. The Israeli government, backed by statements from U.S. officials, demanded the Gaza residents evacuate their homes.
· Katrina, written in Hebrew, has a numerical equivalent of 374, according to a biblical numbering system upheld by all traditional Jewish authorities. Two relevant passages in the Torah share the exact numerical equivalent:
Genesis 60:17 - "They have done you evil"
Exodus 14:15 - "The sea upon land"
· Bush, from Texas, and Rice, from Alabama, were the most vocal U.S. backers of the Gaza evacuation. Hurricane Katrina hit the states in between Texas and Alabama – Louisiana and Mississippi.
· Similarity in scenes: Many residents of Jewish Gaza climbed to their rooftops to escape the threat of expulsion, while residents of the Gulf Coast climbed on their own rooftops to protect themselves from the rising waters. Jewish Gaza homes described as beautiful and charming were demolished this week by Israel's military. Once beautiful homes in New Orleans now lie in ruins.

· The day Katrina hit, Israel began carrying out what was termed the most controversial aspect of the Gaza withdrawal – the uprooting of bodies from the area's Jewish cemetery. There have been media reports of corpses floating around in flooded New Orleans regions.
· Citizens of Israel were barred from entering Gush Katif; people were only allowed to leave Jewish Gaza. As Katrina was making landfall U.S. authorities barred citizens from entering the affected areas. People were only allowed out.
· Gush Katif was an important agricultural area for Israel, providing the Jewish state with 70 percent of its produce. A New Orleans port that exported much of the Midwest's agricultural production was destroyed by Katrina.”
The finger of the God of Israel writes out His message in many different ways. In the Bible the finger of the Lord of hosts wrote the death sentence for the emperor of the Babylon in a banquet hall, but its message could not be understood by King Belshazzar nor by any of his great “neo-com” counselors or magi. It took the retired Jewish prime minister, Belteshazzar, the prophet of God, the prophet Daniel, to give him the verdict.
Daniel 5:17-20, 22-26 – “Then Daniel answered, and said before the king, ‘Let your gifts be for yourself, and give your rewards to another; yet I will read the writing to the king, and make known to him the interpretation. O king, the Most High God gave Nebuchadnezzar your father a kingdom and majesty, glory and honor. And because of the majesty that He gave him all peoples, nations, and languages trembled and feared before him. Whomever he wished, he execute; whomever he wished, he kept alive; whomever he wished, he set up; and whomever he wished, he put down. But when his heart was lifted up, and his spirit was hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him….
But you his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, although you knew all this. And you have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven. They have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your lords, your wives and your concubines, have drunk wine from them. And you have praised the gods of silver and gold, bronze and iron, wood and stone, which do not see or hear or know; and the God who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways, you have not glorified. Then the fingers of the hand were sent from Him and this writing was written. And this is the inscription that was written:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN
This is the interpretation of each word. ‘MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.’”
Is the Lord of hosts saying to George Bush today, “Oh, President, God has numbered your kingdom?”
As reported in the September 3, 2005 issue of Koenig’s Eye View by White House correspondent William Koenig, he wrote:
William Koenig - “I tracked news headlines and activities beginning at the start of the disengagement activities in Israel, leading up to the devastating Hurricane Katrina. The news was very revealing and significant in magnitude. You can review the news headlines by clicking here:
God’s Call to Judgment relating to Israel’s Covenant Land by William Koenig
One day after Sharon stated the Gaza evacuation was completed, a tropical depression formed near the Bahamas, virtually out of nowhere. Within 48 hours, it was a hurricane — and 72 hours later, it landed in Florida before proceeding to the Gulf of Mexico.
To say the least, much has happened since the disengagement eviction began in Israel on Aug. 17 (with preliminary work actually taking place during the 9th of Av — sundown on Saturday, Aug. 13, to sundown on Sunday, Aug. 14). The government of Israel didn’t want the disengagement eviction to begin until Aug. 17 due to the curse of the 9th of Av for the Jewish people.
On Monday, Aug. 22, the last Jewish settlement in Gaza was evacuated - wrapping up Israel's historic pullout from the coastal strip after settlers held a farewell march behind Torah scrolls and a massive menorah, then boarded armored buses and left. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas spoke by telephone and expressed their commitment to peace — the first conversation between the two since the pullout started, a senior Palestinian negotiator said. The leaders spoke for about five minutes, with Mr. Abbas telling Mr. Sharon, “We are your partners for peace,” according to negotiator Saeb Erekat.
The next day, Aug. 23, the day after the completion of the Gaza evacuation, the government of the Bahamas issued a tropical storm warning for central and northwestern Bahamas. (Putting this storm into perspective, many of the tropical storms and hurricanes begin off the western coast of Africa and typically take ten days to two weeks before affecting the Bahamas, the Caribbean and/or the U.S. coastline. Not Katrina.)
By 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 24, the newly-formed tropical depression was upgraded to Tropical Storm Katrina; and by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25, Katrina became a hurricane. In a period of only 72 hours, tropical depression 11 developed into a hurricane and hit southeast Florida (the only area untouched by the past six hurricanes).
Hurricane Katrina is now expected to be the costliest weather-related disaster in U.S. history. It was devastating in intensity and size. If it hadn’t been for a last-minute break in the eye wall, it would have very likely destroyed the city of New Orleans and cost hundreds of billions of dollars. Government agencies and private relief organizations flew into action yesterday in what some are describing as the largest mobilization ever for a natural disaster.
As the Word of God says:
Genesis 12:3 - “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (KJV)
Joel 3:2 - “I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted My land” (KJV).
Only those Searchers with the “eyes that can see and ears that can hear” will be able to see the “finger” of the Lord of hosts as He writes his messages of warning to the nations of this earth. The Will of God is supreme. His Will is not answerable to our will. His Ways cannot be understood by our reasoning. Without repentance, the days of America are numbered.
It was not the devastating power of impact that Katrina will be remembered but to the extend of damage all along the entire Gulf Coast from New Orleans to the western end of Florida. Vast “geographical changes” were sculpted in the landscape. This storm destroyed centuries old structures that have withstood countless other hurricanes in past years.

While the American media was reporting the number of people that were death in the cities along the Gulf Coast, the authorities in Louisiana and New Orleans refused to report any human casualties within their region. Why?
Reports were soon to circulate around the globe that New Orleans was a “Dead City” and estimates of deaths of upwards to 50,000 citizens were first reported by Russian authorities in a September 1, 2005 in the article called, “50,000 Dead as New Orleans Declared ‘Dead City.’”
Sorcha Faal – “Russian Intelligence Analysts are reporting this morning on what can only be described as a human catastrophe as it pertains to the events currently developing in the United States Southern Regions, and where the 24th largest city in this country has been declared as a ‘Dead City’. Reports are also reaching us that the American people themselves have still not been informed by their Military Leaders as to the full extent of the human lives lost, and as some of these reports estimate as being over 50,000 lives lost, and which makes this the greatest single natural disaster to have ever occurred in the United States.
Unlike Russian and Chinese television broadcasts from this region, the people in the United States are not being shown the images of the masses of human remains floating in their Southern waters, many being eaten by reptiles in scenes so horrific as to shock any normal human being that has seen them. Russian Social Scientists report that these American peoples are not able to view these images, and indeed are kept from viewing them, as they are not ‘emotionally equipped’ to absorb the true horror of these events, and which is strange as these American people produce and export to the entire world some of the most shockingly violent movies the world has ever seen.
But unlike one their movies the events currently overwhelming them now are all too real. To the ‘Dead City’ of New Orleans itself Russian Military Analysts are reporting that 2 Brigades of US Army and Navy Elite Special Forces have been ordered from the battlefields of Iraq to begin restoring order as the masses of the refuges in this ‘Dead City’ have resorted to barbarism and all social order has broken down and they can only be described, according to one report, as a ‘Ruthless Mob’.”
Six days later the American Homeland Security informants confirmed what was earlier reported by the Russian Intelligence services as found in the article posted on September 6, 2005, “Morticians prep for 40,000 bodies - Corpses piled in convention center freezer – 'It's not on, but at least you can shut the door'”. It said,
World Net Daily – “As the water level in much of New Orleans begins to slowly recede, officials are preparing to deal with thousands of dead bodies – bodies floating in contaminated water, hidden in damaged homes and even piled together in the freezer of the city's convention center. "DMort is telling us to expect up to 40,000 bodies," Dan Buckner, a funeral home director, said, quoting officials with the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team, a volunteer arm of the Department of Homeland Security.
According to a report in the Shelbyville Times-Gazette of Tennessee, Buckner, co-owner of Gowen-Smith Chapel, and his partner are on their way to the Gulf Coast to help deal with the mounting number of dead. The 40,000 estimate does "not include the number of disinterred remains that have been displaced from ... mausoleums," Buckner told the paper.”
Instead what was described as the United States greatest humanitarian effort, upwards to 100,000 of the cities downtrodden and “left-behind” population of New Orleans was funneled to the cities greatest social and economic symbol, the Super Dome. Yet this “City of Refuge” as designated by the American Red Cross and the Government relief efforts, in was reported in less complementary but more factual terms by Jack Duggan, a New Jersey reporter responding to the scenes as recorded on national TV FOX NEWS. He left in this account on the Lew Rockwell site called, “The Super Dome of Shame.”
Jack Duggan – “Watching news coverage of the refugees trying to enter the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans for safety from the approaching force-five Hurricane Katrina, I was incredulous how the people attempting to enter the stadium were being treated by the National Guard troops and local police. The people were made to stand for hours outside in the awful Louisiana climate while they were admitted one or two adults at a time so they could be searched "for firearms and alcohol." The frail elderly, many grasping walkers and others in wheelchairs seemed to be near collapse. They, along with hundreds of small children needing water and rest-room relief, were forced to wait as long as four hours to get to safety. It was often repeated during the video reports that the last time the Superdome was used as a hurricane shelter, a few of the temporary occupants removed some furniture. But this time, they had a large security force on hand, so that was NOT going to happen again, no-siree-bob.
During coverage by Geraldo Rivera Sunday night, FOX NEWS' video cameras zoomed inside the foyer deck of the Superdome and viewers could see a National Guard person going through a powder compact from a woman's purse that was way too small to hold a liquor bottle or a gun. It was obvious that they were looking for drugs in warrantless searches. They instructed all the refugees far back in the seemingly endless lines to have their prescription-pill bottles out when approaching the security checkpoint and also a photo ID to prove that they belonged with the prescription.
There were THOUSANDS of poor, mostly black citizens of the lower Louisiana area, many of them little children and sickly elderly, being forced to stand for hours while the government violated their civil rights with forced searches that were patently unconstitutional, unjust and unreasonable under the dire circumstances. "Don't want to be searched? That's okay...now turn around, go outside and die!" Big choice. Can you imagine New Orleans' wealthy elite meekly submitting to such microscopic searches of their persons and property for drugs? Heads would roll. But poor people who had no money to escape the deadly storm's onslaught had no choice. They had nowhere else to go to save their children's and parents' lives. They were humiliated just for trying to survive. Their grandfathers and grandmothers suffered as slaves on Southern plantations decades ago, while today, they suffer as slaves to the state, the state that cancels their human rights and dignity in the name of "protecting" them… Think about it. They can allow in 30,000 screaming fans with fifty-dollar bills and costly NFL tickets in their hands in a few minutes, but poor black people fleeing for their lives, four hours. Four HOURS! None of the news people I saw on the major cable and broadcast networks noticed this outrage. Apparently, they are still "embedded" with the government and couldn't possibly risk dislodging their heads long enough to report the truth right before their eyes.
We let morons take away our rights to person and property at the airports, all for the false "protection" they promised us and can't possibly deliver, so now we see them doing it to helpless citizens even when the citizens' lives are in danger. "First, we gotta check you for weapons and drugs...pull your dress up, lift up your arms...." – let those old people collapse and those kids soil themselves – "This is FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY…"
For seventy two hours under conditions not seen in modern America, the “poor” of Louisiana were shuttled from one refuge center to another. According to media reports, the “mob rule” and “anarchy” took over. For many this was described as a “descent into hell.” It was not to the food stores as widely reported in the news, but to the gun shops and pharmacies as mob order ruled the inner city and the frantic “acts of survival” of addicts who sought to obtain drugs to prevent their descent into withdrawals.” Yet, it is Brad Edmonds, author of “There’s a Government in your Soup” who wrote the article, “New Orleans isn’t anarchy.” In it he defends the thesis that anarchy “is government run chaos.”
Brad Edmonds – “The current situation in New Orleans does not prove what happens when there’s no government. Rather, the current situation proves what can result when government is there, and responds badly in an emergency. It proves what sort of culture our intrusive government has spent decades nurturing. Remember, this all happened under forcible government monopoly of infrastructure, emergency services, police patrols, and justice. New Orleans’ descent into chaos isn’t evidence against liberty, but evidence that we need some.”

The explosion jolted residents awake early Friday, illuminating the pre-dawn sky with red and orange flames over the city where corpses rotted along flooded sidewalks and bands of armed thugs thwarted fitful rescue efforts.

FEMA and the Department of Defense are now under the scrutiny for their handling of this catastrophe. As reported in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin in the article titles, “Is this readiness? – What hurricane reveals about terror threat.”
G2 Bulletin - Given that Federal Emergency
Management Agency Director Joe Allbaugh has said more than once in
recent years that New Orleans was the No. 1 natural catastrophic planning
scenario, the disaster left in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina has some
national security experts concerned about government's ability to handle future
terrorist attacks on major American cities. Some intelligence analysts say
the Department of Defense has been slow to respond given weather forecasters
gave them 48 hours warning. "The terrorists will not give us a
48-hour warning on a nuclear strike," said one such source.
Northcom, the same branch of the Defense Department responsible for nuclear terrorism disaster planning, is the lead coordinating agency in crisis response and consequence management for disasters like Katrina. The disaster in New Orleans reveals the following shortcomings in disaster preparedness for urban areas, according to experts who have examined the issue:
· The U.S. is incapable of evacuating more than 50 percent of even a medium-size city with 48 hours notice. Evacuation plans do not take into consideration those who cannot leave because of lack of transportation, lack of money or other issues. Some are asking why school buses and other public transportation were not used to evacuate the city.
· The "shelters" are nothing more than disasters waiting to happen. Just 12 hours after the power went out at the SuperDome, the people inside were on the verge of rioting. Toilets went unflushed for days. The roof had gaping holes in it. There was no air conditioning. People were permitted to go outside for fresh air. But, the experts ask, what would happen if fresh air was not an option? There was no satellite system for public information. There were problems even with the public address system. No chemical or portable toilets were brought in.
· Today the Army Corps of Engineers is trying to figure out how and why the costly levy system was breached – even though FEMA has said New Orleans has been the No. 1 priority for disaster readiness for years.
· Serious vulnerabilities in the transportation system were exposed. Major arteries in and out of New Orleans are down because of problems with bridges and tunnels. The city is largely cutoff from the rest of the country. New Orleans is hardly alone as a major city reliant on bridges and tunnels. Think of New York, Boston and San Francisco. Better use of boats needs to be considered in future rescue efforts.
need to be pre-positioned for emergencies – something that was clearly not
considered in New Orleans.
"Four years after 9/11, we still have serious communications, readiness and planning issues," said one military preparedness expert.
It was reported by the website for the US Department of Labor that in the entire continent of the United States there are only 810,000 truck drivers. It was estimated that 200,000 of these drivers will be diverted to the national emergency of Hurricane Katrina by the United States military to protect their vital assets and the massive re-supplying efforts needed for the Southern crises. The ripple effect will be equally damaging.
It is expected that the modern American market system of “Just In Time Delivery” can quickly be affected in the massive shortages in restocking and supplying. It is also estimated that it will threaten to shut down 90% of the manufacturing companies in the nation due to shortage of parts and industrial supplies. The trucking industry transports 85% of the produce from farm to market to grocery store. This also includes the transportation from port unloading facilities to warehouses across the nation. The effect of Katrina are expected to quickly be felt. Home garden produce markets, a rarity in America today, were the sustenance of many Americans during the Gulf States oil embargo in the 70s. These no longer exist in most populous areas.
The massive shortages of diesel fuel have driven the price to levels that threaten the survival of the large fleets and independent trucking contractors who are caught in the wedge between contracted delivery contracts and the escalating costs associated with the higher price of fuel. The memories of thirty years ago are still vivid in many baby-boomers minds. In 1973 the price of crude oil rose 400% in the days following the October 1973 Arab-Israeli War. With the control of the price of oil by OPEC, there were long lines in the nation’s gasoline stations to the ever spiraling price of gasoline. The grocery stores shelves in the spring of 1974 quickly became bare as the basic essentials of toilet paper and drinking water were not able to be shipped by the decreasing number of the nation’s truckers who were able to stay solvent. The catastrophe left by Katrina today is fixed and real. It is not to the whim of oil potentates of OPEC who want to assert their control on the world’s oil market and willing to drop the price of oil at their discretion. Their destiny and our destiny are equally at stake.
The Catastrophic Insurance Losses to the United States
The news traveled rapidly around the globe as the effect of the catastrophic losses to the Gulf States in America began to sink into the consciousness of Americans and the world alike. The total losses in American alone are now being estimated at upwards to $500 billion dollars. On the world scene, these losses will rise to an unprecedented estimate of over $2 trillion dollars.
The initial estimates for insurance losses alone initially were estimated at $25 billion that rose within twenty-four hours to an estimate of nearly $35 billion. This will dwarf the most expensive hurricane on record, Hurricane Andrew who came ashore in 1992 with losses of $21 billion in damages adjusted to 2004 dollars. The combined losses to insurance claims alone for the four hurricanes that hit Florida in 2004 were $23 billion.
As the New York Times News reported on September 3, 2005 in their article, "First Estimate Puts Storm's Economic Toll at $100 Billion,”
New York Times - "A risk management firm yesterday offered the first estimate of economic losses from Hurricane Katrina - $100 billion - and said that private insurance would probably cover less than a quarter of that. Federal money and charitable contributions may need to do the rest. Saying the damage already appeared far greater than expected, Risk Management Solutions in Newark, Calif., said that insured losses would range from $20 billion to $35 billion, much higher than the firm's initial estimate of $10 billion to $25 billion…
The oil dependant America has continued to watch her oil reserve slip since 1990 over 17% as estimated by the Department of Energy statistics. Today with the potential loss of Louisiana’s reserves which are 20% of America’s total oil reserves and the destruction of the production facilities along the Gulf Coast, it is estimated that there will be a catastrophic decline in not only to America’s Strategic Reserves but also to the Strategic Reserves in Europe and Japan. As reported in the British Sunday Times on September 3, 2005 titled, "Europe to send emergency oil to US to ease crisis":
British Sunday Times - "Europe will dip into its emergency stocks of gasoline to help the United States through an energy crisis that began when Hurricane Katrina smashed into Gulf coast refiners, EU governments said yesterday. France, Germany, Spain and Italy said they were ready to send fuel across the Atlantic in an operation coordinated by the West's energy watchdog, the International Energy Agency. A US government official confirmed Washington had asked for help and said most of the gasoline would come from Europe."
According to Japan Today in an article, “Japan to release oil stockpile equal to 12% of IEA's planned release," it states;
Japan Today - "Japan will free part of its private-sector oil stockpile at an amount equal to 12% of the International Energy Agency's planned release of 60 million barrels following Hurricane Katrina, government officials said Saturday. Japan last tapped its oil stockpile in 1991 during the Gulf War as part of world efforts to curb soaring oil prices. The timing of the release of the oil will be decided in view of similar moves by other IEA members, the officials said, adding it could be in the next week at the earliest."
The effect on the world energy market and the effect on the gasoline prices in other countries were immediate. According to the British Times Online article, "£1 litre looms as US oil firms target European fuel supplies;”
British Times Online - "The economic damage from Hurricane Katrina will soon be felt in Britain with petrol prices possibly soaring as high as £1 per litre. Flood-damaged American oil companies are expected to turn to European refineries for alternative supplies of road fuel, forcing up the price of petrol and diesel in Britain. Concern that a tenth of America’s refining capacity lies under water sent the wholesale price of petrol rocketing on the NYMEX futures exchange in New York and yesterday shock waves raced across the Atlantic and buffeted Rotterdam."
The Catastrophic Losses to Oil Production in the Gulf States
Across hundreds of miles of the U.S. South crippled by the rampage of Hurricane Katrina, car drivers are running on empty, hobbled by the worst fuel shortage in recent years. Drivers are burning what little fuel they have looking for more. They circle gas stations for hours, or line the sides of the roads around them, hoping against hope that a tanker will show up and the pumps will gush again. (Graphic/Reuters)
According to the Associated Press, the title of their article tells the picture, "90 percent of Gulf of Mexico oil production blocked." In this article written on September 5, 2005, seven days after Katrina made landfall, it states,
Associated Press - "Ninety percent of the Gulf of Mexico's normal daily oil production is blocked from market today because of offshore platform evacuations forced by Hurricane Katrina. The U-S Minerals Management Service said 423 of the 819 staffed production platforms in the Gulf are shut down, delaying production of one-point-36 (m) million barrels of oil, or 90-point-four percent of the region's normal daily production of one-point-five (m) million barrels."
The destruction of the United States oil production capability in the South was reported in an article from Itar-Tass News called "Hurricane Katrina ruins 58 oilrigs in Gulf of Mexico."
Itar-Tass News - "Hurricane Katrina ruined 58 oilrigs in the Gulf of Mexico, a representative of the American Petroleum Institute said on Friday. He said 30 oilrigs could not be restored. Apache Oil Company, which announced the loss of eight oil rigs producing about 7,200 barrels of oil and 12.1 million cubic meters of gas a day, suffered large damages. American experts said that total losses in the oil production have amounted to daily 7.44 barrels since August 26. The Gulf of Mexico was supplying up to 30% of all U.S. crude and one-fourth of natural gas to the American market."
As the American economy took a rest over Labor Day weekend in September 2005 the effects of Katrina were not fully realized to the American public. On their conscious level, the first affect will be denial until the full reality hits home. That effect will be first at the filling station and then second at the grocery store. The American dream is over.
The reality of that fact has barely begun to sink in. The impact will not only be felt in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast but in California, New York and in every nation in the entire world.
Has America been put under Martial or Military Law?
“And because of the majesty that He gave him all peoples, nations, and languages trembled and feared before him.
Whomever he wished, he execute; whomever he wished, he kept alive; whomever he wished, he set up;
and whomever he wished, he put down.”
Unknown to the city and to the nation, the President of the United States had already put the entire southern states of America under Martial Law. The enforcement has not been publicly declared. This fact alone appears strange in the fact that rarely does the U.S. government declare a “State of Emergency” or “martial law” for a natural disaster until requested by a state or city government. As reported in Wikipedia, under “State of Emergency”,
“State of Emergency” - "In the United States, the chief executive is typically empowered to declare a State of Emergency. The President of the United States, a governor of a state, or even a local mayor may declare a State of Emergency within his or her jurisdiction. This is relatively rare at the federal level, but quite common at the state level in response to natural disasters."

Science Daily – “Martial law was declared in New Orleans midday Tuesday as the city continued flooding from at least two levees damaged by Hurricane Katrina. WWL-TV, New Orleans, which evacuated its studios earlier, reported airlifts of sandbags had been ordered as water flooded along the city's landmark Canal Street. No one but emergency personnel was being allowed into the city, whose two airports were under water. Looting was reported. Mayor Ray Nagin said bodies have been seen floating in floodwaters, although neither city nor Louisiana state officials had issued a preliminary death toll. Nagin said the city's Twin Span Bridge is "totally destroyed" and that 80 percent of the city is underwater. New Orleans is 6 feet below sea level, and reliant on levees to hold back water from Lake Ponchartrain. He also predicted there would be no electricity in the city for four to six weeks. Natural gas leaks were also reported throughout the city, CNN reported.”
What we were seeing is the largest mobilization of National Guard in the history of the United States and the speed of action in which it was initiated has raised the suspicions of many advocates of human rights and freedoms. Some thought leaders such as Llewellyn H. Rockwell, author of “Speaking on Liberty”, was pointed in his observation in an article titled, “The State and the Flood", when he wrote;
Llewellyn H. Rockwell - "Every American ought to be alarmed at the quickness of officials to declare martial law, invade people's rights, deny people the freedom of movement, and otherwise trample on all values that this country is supposed to hold dear. A crisis does not negate the existence of human rights. It is not a license for tyranny. It is not a signal that government can do anything it wants.
Also unknown were the inner working plans by the leadership of Northcom (Northern Command) located in Colorado Springs, Colorado that issued a report showing the preparation of the military command leadership of the United States to put American citizens under Military or Martial Law.
The strategic justification for martial law such as terrorist attacks or a national disaster which affected America’s vital resources would be reason enough to declare “martial law.” As reported in Asian Times in an article posted on August 10, 2005 entitled, "Pentagon devising scenarios for martial law in US:”
Patrick Martin in Asian Times - "According to a report published Monday by the Washington Post, the Pentagon has developed its first ever war plans for operations within the continental United States, in which terrorist attacks would be used as the justification for imposing martial law on cities, regions or the entire country.
In this case, the strategic reason for the protection of the area around New Orleans is that any destruction to this area, by either terrorist or natural disaster, could bring the American economy to her knees. With America’s dependency upon oil, the Louisiana Region holds the largest concentration of pipelines and refineries in the United States and a large segment of the Strategic Reserves of Oil is also in this region. According to the Energy Information Agency in the US Department of Energy,
Department of Energy - "Louisiana is a major oil producing state with abundant crude oil reserves, ranking 5th in production and 8th in reserves. Petroleum infrastructure is extensive with a large network of crude oil, product, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) pipelines and storage facilities. Louisiana is also home to two of the four Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) storage facilities: West Hackberry in Cameron Parish and Bayou Choctaw in Iberville Parish, Louisiana.
“While some refineries have closed, and no new refineries have been built in nearly 30 years, many existing refineries have expanded their capacities. As a result of capacity creep," whereby existing refineries create additional refining capacity from the same physical structure, capacity per operating refinery increased by 28% over the 1990 to 1998 period, for example. Overall, since the mid-1990s, U.S. refinery capacity has increased from 15.0 million bbl/d [barrels per day] in 1994 to 16.9 million bbl/d in September 2004. Also in September 2004, utilization of operating capacity at U.S. refineries was averaging around 90%, down from 97% in July and August."
According to Post reporter, Bradley Graham with the Washington Post,
Bradley Graham - “A total of 15 potential crisis scenarios
are outlined, ranging from “low-end,” which Graham describes as “relatively
modest crowd-control missions,” to “high-end,” after as many as three
simultaneous catastrophic mass-casualty events, such as a nuclear,
biological or chemical weapons attack. In each case, the military would
deploy a quick-reaction force of as many as 3,000 troops per attack—i.e.,
9,000 total in the worst-case scenario. More troops could be made available as
About 1,400 National Guard troops have been
formed into a dozen regional response units, while smaller quick-reaction
forces have been set up in each of the 50 states. Northcom also has the power
to mobilize four active-duty Army battalions, as well as Navy and Coast
Guard ships and air defense fighter jets. The Pentagon is acutely conscious of
the potential political backlash as its role in future security operations
becomes known. Graham writes: “Military exercises code-named Vital Archer,
which involve troops in lead roles, are shrouded in secrecy. By contrast, other
homeland exercises featuring troops in supporting roles are widely
Military lawyers have studied the legal implications of such deployments, which risk coming into conflict with a longstanding congressional prohibition on the use of the military for domestic policing, known as posse comitatus. Involving the National Guard, which is exempt from posse comitatus, could be one solution, Admiral Keating told the Post. “He cited a potential situation in which Guard units might begin rounding up people while regular forces could not,” Graham wrote.
Graham adds: “when it comes to ground forces possibly taking a lead role in homeland operations, senior Northcom officers remain reluctant to discuss specifics. Keating said such situations, if they arise, probably would be temporary, with lead responsibility passing back to civilian authorities.” A remarkable phrase: “probably would be temporary.” In other words, the military takeover might not be temporary, and could become permanent! In his article, Graham describes the Northern Command’s “Combined Intelligence and Fusion Center, which joins military analysts with law enforcement and counterintelligence specialists from such civilian agencies as the FBI, the CIA and the Secret Service.” The article continues: “A senior supervisor at the facility said the staff there does no intelligence collection, only analysis. He also said the military operates under long-standing rules intended to protect civilian liberties. The rules, for instance, block military access to intelligence information on political dissent or purely criminal activity.”
Yet the military is very interested in political dissent because any action in the United States will possibly affect the democratic rights of the American people. As now seen in the manner of treatment of the American citizens in New Orleans who were “left behind”, the issues of human rights are paramount. The protection of human rights is or was the secret of the greatness of the United States. Yet, according to Graham,
“While the Pentagon claims that its plans are a response to the danger of nuclear, biological or chemical attacks, no serious practical measures have been taken to forestall such attacks or minimize their impact. The Bush administration and Congress have refused even to restrict the movement of rail tank cars loaded with toxic chemicals through the US capital, though even an accidental leak, let alone a terrorist attack, would cause mass casualties.”
In closing, Graham has one caution,
“The anti-terrorism scare has a propaganda purpose: to manipulate the American people and induce the public to accept drastic inroads against democratic rights. As the Pentagon planning suggests, the American working class faces the danger of some form of military-police dictatorship in the United States.”
The recent battle between the governors of the fifty states and the federal government over the closing of military bases has opened new vistas in the attempt for totally federal control over all security in the United States.
The military will expand the number of National Guard troops mobilized for hurricane relief efforts along the Gulf coast to 30,000 in the coming days, and the Navy is sending the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman to help, officials said on Thursday. Pentagon officials had said on Wednesday the number of National Guard troops under the command of state governors would reach 21,000 by the end of Friday. Now the number will top 30,000 in the next few days, mostly in Louisiana and Mississippi, but also some in Alabama and Florida. (Graphic/Reuters)
On August 13, 2005, the Boston Globe posted a thought provoking article, “Ruling favors US control of National Guard units.” The path has now been paved by the United States Federal Government to complete the process of taking away the control of the National Guard, or the “States Militia” and put it under federal control. The State’s Militia were put into place by our founding fathers to prevent a complete military takeover control of the United States. The checks and balances provided that full dictatorial control could never be placed in the hands of the President of the United States. This safeguard has now been removed. The man in the oval office will now have complete control of all military and security needs of the American public. As stated in this article,
Boston Globe – “The Pentagon does not need the consent of governors to move Air National Guard units in their states, the Justice Department has concluded, less than two weeks before an independent commission must decide which parts of the Defense Department's base-closing plan to change.”
The Military State Emergence
In addition to the federalization of all state’s National Guard, the federalization of “all authority” in the security of every state in the United States has been fully given to the Director of Homeland Security. As reported by Sorcha Faal in “What does it Mean”, in an article called “The Camps of ICE, Americas Road to Fascist Rule Nears Completion as US Government Accelerates Building of Concentration Camps." In this article, she makes the shocking introduction appealing to the history of the rise of the Nazi state in Germany.
The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman, seen in this undated handout photo, is being sent to the Gulf to join the relief effort for hurricane-battered Louisiana and Mississippi, the Navy said on September 1, 2005. The warship, which was to depart Norfolk, Virginia later in the day, would provide a major naval command post in the Gulf of Mexico, helping coordinate the actions of nearly a dozen other warships and supply vessels, including two Navy helicopter assault ships. (U.S. NAVY/Handout/Reuters)
Sorcha Faal – “Being the students of history that we are, one cannot help but to be terrifyingly fascinated by the current transformation currently underway in America, and which is the shockingly mirror image of what transpired in the 1930’s German Republic that saw a democratic government subsumed by the forces of Fascist Military rule, and not by force, but rather by the will of the people themselves. For Russian Social Scientists who have long debated, and speculated upon, the exact mechanisms wherein free people gladly put upon themselves the yokes of oppressive rule, there is today no better example than the United States and its people, who while waging a Global War are also facing economic ruin.
To the many contradictions facing these Americans none is more apparent than their Military Leaders accelerated plans for the building of Concentration Camps, and coupled with their not ever believing that they will ever be forced into them, but as countless millions of Nazi German, former Soviet and present Chinese peoples could tell them that the only purpose of these camps are for the suppression of all dissent.”
In the blueprint stage for American citizens of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is called “ENDGAME: Office of Detention and Removal Strategic Plan, 2003-2012", is the plan to build a series of concentration camps that can hold upwards of 5,000,000 human beings! No longer will the city, country municipal or federal prisons be the detaining facilities. As we continue in this article about what is called America’s Secret Police, their duties will include:
Sorcha Faal - "Investigating threats, crimes and administrative violations; Deterring, interdicting, and removing threats; and policing and securing federal facilities; Provide air and marine support to minimize the damage, and assist in the recover from terrorist attacks."
When asked who and what the “threats” are, she responds:
Sorcha Faal – “should not come as a surprise to these Americans as their own President has already stated that those who do not support their Global War on Terrorism are themselves terrorists. As history has all too often shown, the Leaders of Fascist Nations are never more popular to the masses than when they shout of war and protecting the ‘Homeland’. And all that remains to be done by these American Military Leaders are to provide the final ‘cataclysmic event’ that will galvanize their citizens to relinquish what little remains of their freedom, and to which the plans have already been put into place.”
According to the Russian Intelligence Analyzers, the concentration camps are now complete and only a ‘triggering event’ needs to take place. According to the "The United States Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2", the implementation will be as follows:
The United States Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2 - "Under this plan for the deployment of Operation Garden Plot, the use of CIDCON-1 will be mandatory. This direct support of civil disturbance control operations is to be used by the Army, USAF, Navy, and Marine Corp. with an airlift force to be comprised of MAC Organic Airlift Resources, airlift capable aircraft of all other USAF major commands, and all other aerial reconnaissance and Airborne Psychological Operations. This is to include control communications systems, aero medical evacuation, helicopter and Weather Support Systems. If any civil disturbance by a resistance group, religious organization, or other persons considered to be non-conformist takes place, under Appendix 3 to Annex B of Plan 55-2 hereby gives all Federal forces total power over the situation if local and state authorities cannot put down said dissenters. Annex A, section B of Operation Garden Plot defines tax protesters, militia groups, religious cults, and general anti-government dissenters as Disruptive Elements. This calls for the deadly force to be used against any extremist or dissident perpetrating any and all forms of civil disorder."
It was Henry Kissinger, US (German-born) diplomat & scholar; national security advisor 1969-1975; Secretary of State 1973-1977; Nobel Prize in Peace 1973, who was quoted in the New York Times in 1973 as saying,
Thirty years later, we are in the “unconstitutional” era of American politics. As aptly stated,
Sorcha Faal – “To the masses of these American people realizing the dangers they are in there is no hope. So monstrous are the plans made for these once free peoples that their very minds cannot even conceive of the horrors and degradations soon to befall them. So precarious are not these Americans situated, spiritually, emotionally, financially, that having neither prepared for, nor even having thought of preparing, they remain virtual hostages to these cataclysmic events. To the warnings of ourselves, others around the world and even those of their own countrymen they continue to turn their backs and their minds….almost as if in not facing the truth it will somehow change…That ‘longer’ has become today, and in America today the darkness of an evil so insidious as to cause one to turn away continues to permeate that once great land and its once great people. But they do not notice, not because they cannot see these truth things for themselves, but rather because in seeing them they would finally have to admit that their dreams of peace and liberty are truly dead and gone….and with only themselves to blame for this being so. For truly these once great and mighty people have forgotten the words of warning of their greatest Statesman Thomas Jefferson, and who said, "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
Within two weeks after Katrina, the Hurricane Ophelia was making twisting contortions in the Atlantic Ocean until her gales and winds are expected to make their final landing place in the Carolinas. At the same time, the September 6, 2005 article, titled “Operation Ophelia’ Begins In United States as …NORTHCOM Assumes Control over Entire Country” stated;
What does It Mean - The Military Leaders of the United States have begun the implementation of what the Americans are calling ‘Operation Ophelia’, and which calls for the dividing of the United States into separate Military Districts under the command of their newly established North American Defense Division of NORTHCOM. According to these reports ‘Operation Ophelia’ was originated as a strategic plan for the total changing of American society based upon ‘2 or more’ cataclysmic events occurring in their country over a period of 6 months, and as these reports further show these American Military Leaders are now ‘convinced’ are about to occur.
Also on September 6, 2005, Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration was interviewed and made the following statements in the article, “Former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury on New Orleans: "Americans Are Being Brainwashed;"
Former Assistant Secretary Paul Roberts – “Roberts reviewed the way in which the federal government had slashed funding for flood prevention schemes and pumped everything into the war in Iraq and the war on Terror. He also went on to admit that the military was turning on the people, treating them as subjects, overturning the Posse Comitatus Act.
Roberts agreed that FEMA has deliberately withheld aid, and cut emergency communication lines, and automatically made the crisis look worse in order to empower the image of a police state emerging to ‘save the day’. He even insinuated that the shoot to kill policy was part of the overall operation in order get an awful precedence set to aid the military industrial complex takeover of America.
‘The power of the Federal Government is now greater than at any time, it'll never go back and the Posse Comitatus Act has been eroding ever since it was passed in 1878...’ Roberts asserted.
Roberts further commented "There is no excuse for this, we have never had in our history the federal government take a week to respond to a disaster...this is the first time ever that the help was not mobilized in advance. The proper procedure is that everything is mobilized and ready to go"
Mr. Roberts commented that the American people are being "brainwashed" and no longer believe what the founding fathers said over and over, that your worst enemy is always your own government and never confuse Patriotism with support for the government. He asserted that the mentality is ‘like that of the brown shirts that followed Hitler’ and that the government is deadly dangerous, ‘you can't let the military take over policing.’
On the question of where this is all leading and what the government is gearing up for, Mr. Roberts suggested that ‘It does look like there is a push coming from inside the bowels of the police authorities and it seems to be independent of whoever the President is or who or whatever party is in office. It just gets worse and it's hard to say that it's Bush doing it, he may not even know what's going on... it's enough for us to say that New Orleans demonstrated massive federal incompetence, if it were laid on private people they would be tantamount to criminal negligence... some kind of accountability has to be exercised’"
The Threat to a Weakened America by Global Terrorism
“But when his heart was lifted up, and his spirit was hardened in pride,
he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him…”
The affect of the catastrophe of Katrina is being watched by the enemies of America. The recent threat of nuclear disaster to more than one American city is ever-present and real. The destruction of law and order and the rise of a military state is ever present in the minds of Biblical students of prophecy who have been “watching” and wondering how to stimulate the “saints of the Most High God” to become “ready.” We have lived in an era of spiritualizing the gospel of Jesus that the literal impact and its reality on our lives have been washed away. Let us first look at what is happening to everyone’s lives as the security of the United States will lead this nation to become more bellicose as the “Lamb like beast begins to speak like a Dragon.” It was Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin on intelligence affairs of this world that wrote on August 31, 2005 this article, Katrina and U.S security.
Farah’s G2 Bulletin – “America's enemies are smiling today. They
are watching the chaos in New Orleans with assurance that the U.S. is unprepared for even a single disaster in one medium-sized American city. The U.S. is not alone in waking up to the real-life nightmare on a large part of its southern
coastline and to the military significance of Hurricane Katrina’s
"Shock and Awe" assault. U.S. foes and rivals, from jihadi
terrorists to China, North Korea, even Venezuela and other enemies and potential enemies are closely watching the New Orleans disaster, assessing
every aspect of what seems to be not only the worst natural disaster in U.S. history, but also a security calamity that will have a long-lasting impact on U.S. global-strategic roles.
A British analyst compared the situation to the legendary
Humpty Dumpty poem where "All the king’s horses and all the king’s
men couldn’t put Humpty together again." He warned major
intelligence organizations -- Chinese, North Koreans, Russians and others --
are meticulously collecting every bit of information related to the lack of
preparedness, pitiable problem-solving mechanisms and the anarchy and the chaos
evolving around the destruction of a U.S. urban center.
To those closely watching the demise of an American national treasure in the city of New Orleans, it is a clear and loud indication the U.S. would have horrendous difficulties in coping with a strategic strike. A nuclear disaster in a U.S. urban center would have unimaginable consequences, if, in its aftermath, the New Orleans relief model is repeated.
They say it is incomprehensible how ill-prepared for this situation are the Homeland Security apparatus, the National Guard and other organizations. Immediately after 9/11, a disaster confined to a few blocks in an otherwise fully operational city and state, intelligence analysts expressed predictive warnings of future dangers. Earlier this year Washington, D.C., was put on hold with thousands of people running aimlessly in the streets as a single engine private aircraft mistakenly penetrated protected airspace. The alarm sounded by the police revealed how poorly the nation’s capital is protected, basically exposed with no emergency and readiness response teams at hand to instruct the public how to behave in certain situations. What would have been the right reaction on 9/11, namely to run out of the buildings, could have resulted in a catastrophe in D.C., had the aircraft been spraying biological or chemical substances.
A Russian analyst sent G2B an e-mail asking what good is it to keep idle SWAT teams normally ready to tackle individual or small groups of criminals, at times waiting months for action, when there are no standby forces ready to move on a short notice to a disaster area like that of New Orleans? The Russian analyst used the example of the April 1986 Chernobyl nuclear calamity as an example of how to deal with the urgent necessity to take care of a multitude of people. Within a few days 120,000 people were evacuated from a 20-mile radius disaster area with an additional 210,000 people relocated somewhat later. The stricken area, cities and villages, was evacuated immediately, mainly because of a decision made by then-President Mikhail Gorbachev, who understood the full dimension of the nuclear peripheral danger.
At this stage, as worldwide intelligence organizations are focusing on New Orleans, specialists on a wide range of U.S. affairs are undoubtedly being asked to put together evaluations and analysis documents. When North Korea brags it will soon have the capability to target the U.S. with long-range ballistic missiles, when the threat of a nuclear terror attack could be just a matter of time, teams of civilian and military planners should immediately gather around a brand new drawing board and come up with a whole new strategy on how to confront, not only a hurricane, but the frightening possibility of a WMD attack on several U.S. urban centers in one blow. Hurricane Katrina is not only the cause for a horrendous human tragedy; it is also an alarm bell reverberating from the shores of the Gulf Coast to the bunkers of America's sworn enemies.”
For the people of the Bible, what does it take to consider that the apocalypse of the time of the end, instead of being a prophetic and futuristic reality is now surrounding our lives on this planet earth? How many catastrophes does it take for the God of Israel to awaken us up? It has now been over 160 years since the clarion message swept the eastern coast of the United States in the Great Awakening.
Revelation 14:6-7 – “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth – to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people – saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”
When will it occur to us that what we are seeing happening on this planet earth is also occurring in the spiritual realms as the Great Conflict between Christ and Satan is reaching its final hour? The judgment of this earth belongs to the God of Creation. The allegiance of the inhabitants of this planet belongs to the Lord of Creation. Weekly, He brings His dwelling place close to reside with His people on the Hebrew Shabbat.
Every seventh day Sabbath, the God of Creation celebrates the day that He rested in honor of His crowning object of creation. It was the celebration of that noble creature called “Adam” or “man” that was created in the “image of God” that God honored that day. Every seventh day Sabbath, the Lord of Creation brings His Presence close to the “remnant” of the inhabitants of this earth who now honor and worship Him as the Creator God of the Universe. What a wonderful relationship this is? Here is the God of Creation honoring “mankind”, the descendants of Adam and the “crowning object” of His creation on the Shabbat. Here also is mankind, the humans created in the “image of God” honoring their Creator.
The appointed time of God is steadily marking its time towards that final day, when the Messiah of Israel will return to dwell with His own people. The warning that was sounded in the 1840s and again went around the world in the millennial awakening of Y2K was only a harbinger warning to all the inhabitants on this earth.
The call to the final judgment, according to Revelation, is sent out to this earth by the archangels who stand closest to the Throne of God. This call to judgment is a call that the return of the Maschiach of Yisra’el (Messiah of Israel) is imminent. It is the final call that those who will be called “God’s own” must “Come out of her”; the apostate religions of the earth and return to their Hebrew roots and the apostate social systems on this earth and return to the divine order of governance ordained by the Lord of Creation.
God does not need human agencies on this earth to bring forth His judgment. He does need for us to believe that His judgments are real and that He will use them. The Almighty One will tempt those who think that they are the “masters” of this earth and seek to “plot” against the God of Israel as they compete to be the final masters of world domination.
Does it make any difference whether the consortium of the Russian mob called Yakuza and Aum Shinrikyo, the creator of the Tokyo sarin terrorist attack in 1989 is the guiding force behind the Scalar weather modification disasters in the United States? Does it make any difference whether it is a globalist sponsored agent of the Golden Internationale seen as one of the three guiding global forces competing for world domination by Pope John Paul II? What make the difference is that the will of the Almighty One of Israel will be done.
Are we seeing in the subterranean world of espionage and covert wars the War between the East and the West being played out on the international stage? In spite of whomever was the agent, the hand of the Almighty in the apocalyptic storm, Hurricane Katrina with her unique weather modification signatures, passed judgment upon one of the most decadent cities of America. Like Sodom and Gomorrah, there were not enough righteous people living in the city to spare this disaster.
In what is probably now the greatest migration of humans in the history of the United States, the citizens of New Orleans that have survived have been scattered all over the face of America. The judgment of God is now upon America. What will you do with these poor and dispossessed? One of the greatest opportunities for evangelism is in the hands of the Christian churches today. Will you help to lift up these people from the “pits of hell” and offer them the opportunity to become children of the God of Israel?
The battle between the forces of good and evil will be played out as a new opportunity is offered to hundreds of thousands of homeless to experience the love and care of the saints of God. It will be an opportunity to allow them to meet Jesus face to face in your life outside of their social culture.
Yet the opposite will also be true. The culture of drugs, Satanism and voodoo worship will now be scattered over the landscape of America. It will be here where the saints of God will meet “evil” face to face. The battle for the souls of America will soon begin in your own neighborhood community.
Is this the last catastrophe that will hit America? The odds are high that it is not the last but the first of many catastrophes until America is brought to her knees before the throne of God. Hurricane Ophelia within days is expected to slash her way into the coastline of the Carolinas. Unknown to the American public, Operation Ophelia, according to international intelligence, is establishing the military districts to rule America under the authority of the North American Defense Division of NORTHCOM while Hurricane Ophelia is commanding our attention on the national media. The structural foundation for the military state of the United States of America and the globalist One World Order will be laid.
What are the people of God to do? Are we to rise up in defense of the America we knew and it is disappearing into the archives of history? No! The God of Israel is asking us to do a most non-rational act; to yield our lives fully to Him. We are being called to come out of our social culture; the board rooms of corporate America, the banking industry, the insurance and financial planning industry, the music entertainment industry, the news media industry, the medical health industry, the corporate church industry and all the other globalists sponsored civilization modifying entities that control our lives.
The God of Israel has a personal invitation to each of you to “Follow Me.” “Trust Me,” God asks. The archangel of the Lord flying in the heavens is crying out, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment is come.” Yet are not we afraid? What shall we do? Pray! The least thing we can do is pray to God to guide and to lead us. Praying is the lifeline, the channel of communication with the Divine. Pray while you are walking. Pray while you are driving. Pray while you are talking with a customer in your business. The prayers to the Divine should be as effortless as breathing. Every decision you make will come after a prayer. There is no need for a cell phone. There are no monthly charges to talk with God.
When we do pray, God expects us to place our entire confidence in Him. He expects that in times of crisis, we will have faith in His plan to bring the anti-Messiah system of power, greed and control to its ultimate destruction. We will have faith that when we feel that constraining hand holding us back from a decision that we will wait. Wait? Yes, wait until the God of Israel informs you of the next step you are to take. Faith? This is the pathway of a life of faith.
Our greatest fear is not that we will fail God, but that God will fail us. Do we not want to help God out? Do we not want to hurry up God’s time-table? Do we not want to bypass the suffering and grief and hasten the coming of the Maschiach of Yisra’el (Messiah of Israel) and the final apocalypse? Today we are in the process of signing up for God’s boot camp. We will need to commit ourselves to the “fires of purification” and the discipline of how to have complete confidence in the authority of the Almighty One of Israel.
As God’s “Commander of the hosts”, we will look upon Yahshua (Jesus) as the pathway to connect with the Divine and the power source to be filled with the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). Our soul and our body must be totally committed to an intimate relationship with the Lord of hosts. Like Elijah of old, we will know that surrounding each of us are the angelic hosts sent to protect each of us until our testimony for Yahshua (Jesus) is complete.
Revelation 12:17 – “And the dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, and shomer (watch, keep, observe or guard) the mitzvoth (YHVH’s Commandments or mans’ obedient deeds, or obedient works of Torah done in complete submission and willingness) of YHVH (God of Israel), and have the testimony of Yahshua HaMaschiach (Jesus the Messiah). (Restoration Scripture)
What we see is a war of the soul more so than a war of the body. This war will be done more by deceit and masterful deception than weapons of war. The saints and the wicked will both die in the “natural” appearing catastrophes as they will in the nuclear and biological conflagrations. The battle will be with the “remnant” that honor, adore and serve with all their hearts, souls and minds the Almighty Father and His son, Yahshua.
Many of the “saints” and the “chosen ones” of God presume that calamities and crises will prepare them for future crisis. We call this “God’s boot camp.” What we will discover is that a crisis only reveals what we are made of already, not what the Lord wills us to be. Let us consider that the Lord of hosts engineers tasks, small and great, in our lives as training for His assigned role for our lives. How we walk thru each of theses lessons in life determines our fitness for the battles ahead of us. When a crisis arrives, our true character is revealed. Our private relationship in worshipping God and our personal relationship with His Son, Yahshua, determines our spiritual fitness for the kingdom.
The war with the “saints” and the “chosen ones of Israel” by the forces of the dragon will in their final moments be a war of spiritual oppression. At that time, it will be as though God is turning His face completely away from us, no different than Yahshua (Jesus) felt on the cross when He cried out, “My Father, My Father, why have You forsaken Me.” If your walk with the Divine is right and your private relationship with God, when you are free to move into the “valleys of the shadow of death”, you will be ready. As you walk thru the shadows, your life of trust and faith in the Almighty One will be true. You have learned to rely upon the Lord of hosts and when the strains of those crises arrive, God will known that you can be trusted and relied upon by Him. This was the walk of Abraham on Mount Moriah.
Maybe today, you feel that you have no time for the study of God’s word or for prayer and mediation with the Divine. Maybe you expect that when the final battles arrive that you will be there for Christ. No, you will not be ready! If you have not been prepared by the transforming pathway of fitness for His service, you will not only be useless for God but will be a hindrance to those around you. This preparation for the final hours of tribulation are also the same preparation for an abundant life. Let us remind ourselves of the Psalms of David.
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
The Lord of hosts does not want you to be a scared, frightened and panicking saint. The pathway for the “remnant of the saints” is a life of power and transforming assurance that every step you are walking in the footsteps of the Yahshua (Jesus). Your life will be like a geyser erupting from the earth. The vibrant power of your spirit will be only a reflection of the flow of the Spirit of God flowing through your life. Like a fountain shooting out of the ground that cannot be contained, you will be become transparent as the Spirit of the Holy One will be revealed as it flows out of your life. Your life at this time will be a testimony that the life that Yahshua lived while on this planet two thousand years ago in Galilee and Judea was no in vain. Yahshua’s image, the “Image” of His Father will be reflected in your life, the “image” of His Son. All of our praise will be to His Father.
