"One key question always seemed unanswerable:
'If I don't like the world government, or it doesn't
like me, where do I go then?'"
(Harlan Cleveland, _The Birth of a New World_, 1993,
"You will hide [those who trust in You] in the secret
place of Your Presence...."
(David, King of Israel, _Psalms_ 31:20)
What to Do: A Jewish Response
To date I have not seen a single Jewish response to the
threat which the New Age Plan poses to our people, not to mention the rest
of mankind. I have no idea why.
Truth be told, I feel like David might have felt watching
Goliath taunt "the armies of the living G-d" with no one to answer the
challenge. More accurately, I'm blown away with the realization that
hardly anyone has even noticed that there's a Goliath standing there.
I realize that some Jews are going to squirm uneasily
at my personal response. Some will accuse me of "preaching", as though
prophetic-style warnings and urgings were the sole domain of evangelical
Christians. Whose prophets are they, anyway? Some will say
it is not a "Jewish" response because it is too "spiritual". To these,
I can only suggest that we listen carefully to the New Agers, who may see
our weaknesses better than we do: Alice Bailey always said that the Jews
tend to deal with a spiritual problem on a rationalistic, material level.
And we do. Throw money at it, convene a conference, set up committees,
file the reports. Maybe even launch an educational program.
But meanwhile the real battlefield, which begins and ends in the individual
spirit, remains abandoned to our sworn cosmic enemies... to their smug
It wasn't always that way with the Jewish people.
Our own Book is filled with stories of battles waged by Jews who knew how
to fight on the ground and in the spirit as well. Our most celebrated king,
David son of Jesse, did not hesitate to combine the two strategies, a discipline
which he learned long before his ascension to the throne. To his
dying day, he attributed his success to a relationship with that same Entity
who is so hated by our New Age adversaries. There were prophets too,
whose bold words and acts of faith we all look upon as some kind of inheritance,
whether we believe them or not. But today's Jews who take those Bible
stories as historical fact, who relate to its advice and promises like
money in the bank, are considered a bit out of touch by their more "rational"
Well, as humbling as it may be, a realistic grasp on life
- particularly Jewish or Israeli life - requires acknowledging that some
of what we Jews experience supersedes rational comprehension. The
presence of an identifiable Jewish people, through 4000 years and repeated
attempts at annihilation, is itself a historical fact that defies rational
explanation. It has no historical parallel. Let's consider
for a moment all you skeptical, secular readers out there who still cling
to the label "Jew" in the year 2000: just explaining
more than a rational answer.
So here I offer my response, after coming to terms personally
with all that awaits the Jewish people in the Age of Aquarius. In
a word, the only antidote for New Age "transformation" is a very Old Age
concept: Restoration. Let's get back to the place we belong spiritually.
The process of Restoration begins
within and moves progressively outward, as follows:
1. Restoring Your Own Jewish
Spirituality - for Secular Jews
1a. "Where did we go wrong?" Many concerned Jews have been asking themselves this
question while watching this generation stampede into Eastern religious
cults, into intermarriage, into anything that comes along, leaving their
people far behind without a thought. Some of you may have asked it
while reading this series, coming to the realization that we have been
within the community as well as outside... and we never even noticed.
You deserve an answer. An answer that goes beyond the material "solutions"
we are so fond of implementing and get such meager results from.
The New Agers are right about one thing: the answer will
come from within. Not in the sense they mean: we don't have "all the answers"
within us. But we do have the one answer which will trigger our deliverance.
It is actually the answer to two questions: "Where did we go wrong?" --
and the one G-d always asks when His people go wrong: "Where are you?"
We went wandering off, and now we're lost.... (If we
weren't lost, Hannah's series would be unnecessary....)
Okay, okay - I'm lost. I see this tidal
wave coming our way, and I have no idea which way to run.
This is the only answer we can offer with any authority.
But it's the only answer which our G-d needs from us in order to step into
the picture. Either that's our answer, or we can continue to nurse
our pride, tell ourselves that everything is okay, that we're not lost.
The Jewish population worldwide is growing, antisemitism is dying out,
and we are in no danger at all from these New Age "fringe lunatics" in
the UN, the educational system, the media and the synagogues....
Who are we kidding?
Restoring the Jewish community starts with yourself.
It's "I" plus "you" that makes "we". If "we" are ever going to regain
the ground lost to NA in our community, we're going to have to dig down
to the very bedrock - whatever it was that kept the Jewish people alive
for all this time - and reclaim what we lost. Personally.
And if you're wondering how to find your way back to that
bedrock, the NAers have betrayed their knowledge of what and where it is.
It's the only thing they truly fear. They are frantically trying
to demolish it, before we wake
up and catch on. It's Jewish faith in the one and only G-d.
Not a life dedicated to understanding the Mishneh and Gemara - that doesn't
threaten The Plan in the least. What scares them is the in-their-face kind
of faith you read about in the Torah and Prophets, the kind of faith that
carries no fear or doubt because it can see Who is on top.
Tidal wave or not.
It is my conviction that G-d knew long ago what we would
face in every generation, including this ultimate challenge to our spiritual
and physical survival. That being so, He embedded advice for us in
the words of His prophets. As you will see, the few examples I include
below are amazingly relevant in their choice of words. Coincidence?
How could our prophets of millennia past have known the very terminology
the Hierarchy would use today in their bid to re-open their ancient
war? The writers of the Bible couldn't have known, but the Opponent
of the Hierarchy certainly would have - He "sat [as King] for the Flood"
(_Psalms_ 29:10, literal translation), the last encounter where the
Hierarchy admits being defeated by the Force behind the Jews.
Strengthen your personal faith in your G-d. Regardless of your attitude toward Jewish religious tradition,
take time to study the many historical accounts of attempts to annihilate
the Jews and their G-d (for these two are linked by our enemies without
exception), and what caused these attempts to fail.
Whether you choose Biblical incidents or those from history
(from the Maccabees to modern Israel), you will notice a pattern.
It consists of a few courageous people fighting against impossible odds,
plus some mysterious turn of events which evened the odds for them. The
people involved were not often impressive physically or mentally, but they
distinguished themselves in their willingness to sacrifice their lives,
if necessary, to cling to the G-d of Israel, to the same old patch of ground
in the Middle East, or to their Jewishness (which in the end all amounts
to the same thing, considering how the Jews came to be in the first place).
While many did indeed give up their lives, many more survived to relate
unusual circumstances of deliverance and even outright supernatural intervention.
This is documented in every war the modern State of Israel has fought,
including the 1991 Gulf War.
Consider the alternatives for the future. In the interests of realism, let us acknowledge that,
based on the evidence, there is no chance of surviving this New World Order
on our own strength. Either the New Age Plan will succeed in making
the world "judenrein", or our G-d will even the odds once again.
If we don't believe that Israel has a G-d, we might as
well dismantle the State of Israel, delete Passover from our calendars,
apologize to Hitler, take our "karma medicine" and leave the world without
a fuss. Even if we should believe that G-d is not real, the New Age
very definitely believes it. They also know about our being chosen
by G-d as His instruments in the world, and they will not rest until they
"seal the door" to that hated
Force - down to the last Jew.
In the event that you do not believe in G-d, yet you do
believe that the Jewish people is a historically valid entity, and that
we have every right to perpetuate our identity, then you are left with
explaining why. What history or origins will you base your conviction
on? To what can you attribute the crazy staying power of a people
who hold the record as the all-time favorite target for annihilation -
including several efforts at self-erasure? If you don't fall back
on some kind of Higher Power as an explanation, your rational processes
will begin to suffer from cognitive dissonance.
Of course you can always accept the humbling but satisfying
answer that the G-d of Israel lives. Not that we understand everything
He has done with our people, but He is apparently there - and involved.
He's been keeping some very unlikely promises, in the face of some very
impressive opposition. He is not daunted by His own people's skeptism,
or their outright denial of His existence. His promises include dealing
a final blow to "the wise men of Babylon" who "rule the whole earth" [never
achieved until this day of global culture] and "the daughter of the Kasdim"
with her "sorceries" (Jer. 50 and 51, Isa. 14 and 47). It is noteworthy
that "Helel ben Shahar", the New Agers' "light-bearer", receives
judgment from G-d as the king of Babylon (Isa. 14:3-23).
2. Restoring Your Own Jewish
Spirituality - for Observant Jews
"Have I been taught real Torah?" You may have never questioned whether what you have absorbed
is really a Jewish faith, especially if you are in orthodox circles.
But since New Agers are boasting control of the culture we have grown up
in, and even penetration into the Torah community, it's time to investigate.
Is everything you have accepted about the nature of G-d
and man, good and evil, based on the teachings of the eternal, unchanging
Torah? Is it based on teachings of Jewish leaders who never violated
Deuteronomy 4:2 or 12:32 by cancelling or "reinventing" Torah? Does
your community believe that certain Torah commandments can be disregarded
by certain rabbis or mekubalim because of their lofty spirituality?
Are your leaders teaching Torah, or are they (even
unknowingly) offering a mixture of Torah and "universal ideas" from other
religions? It's true that Torah contains universal ideas, but with
clear boundaries and exclusions. Of special relevance here, we are
explicitly commanded not to "inquire" how idol worshipers "serve their
gods" so that we can "do likewise" for our own G-d. (Deut. 12:30)
Is there anything in the body of today's accepted traditions passing as
"Jewish" that can be found in ancient mystery religions, but not in Torah?
Do you even know the Five Books well enough to answer that question?
(Isaiah 8:19-20, literal translation from Hebrew:)
"And when they say to you, 'Seek the mediums [channelers]
and wizards [adepts in occult mysteries] who chirp and mutter; shall not
a people seek its god on behalf of the living among the dead?' To
the Law and to the Testimony, if they will not speak according to this
word: that it has no dawn [shahar]."
In other words, do not follow those leaders who
refuse to confirm the fact that this is not the "dawning of a new age"
and that Lucifer is not "son of the morning". Do not follow those
who condone occult activities like communing with the dead. If you
can't find such a rabbi to teach you, then stick to "the Law and the Testimony"
on your own.
My rabbi, right or wrong. Have you been taught not to scrutinize what the sages
taught for possible error? Have you been taught that your rabbis
in error? (Infallibility was an old Catholic doctrine, if you please,
and even they only applied it to the Pope!) If a leader you admire is following
after something forbidden by Torah, do you feel obligated to follow him
into it, or to stand on Deuteronomy 13? If false teachers of Torah
were not possible, the Prophets would never have warned against them (see
Ezekiel 34, Jeremiah 2:8, Zephaniah 3, Isaiah 28:7-14, etc).
Speaking of the Prophets, do you really believe that their
words are from G-d, that "all his words" given through the Prophets "are
truth and righteousness", as the Haftarah blessing says? Have you
ever taken time to study the Prophets, or are there entire passages of
"truth and righteousness" which you've never even read once? Perhaps
you been taught that the sages and rabbis have veto power over the Prophets
- did you ever think to ask how that is possible if "not one" word of the
Prophets "will turn back and return empty"? What will you do if you
don't get an answer: stay or leave?
3. Restoring Those Around You
Educate the Jewish people to distance themselves
from all groups which herald the New Age, and to disassociate themselves
from all unJewish teachings.
Our main strength in this regard is: what are we lacking
in our Tenach that we would need to supplement it with these foreign
teachings? The Dalai
Lama's challenge must be, and can be, answered.
Why would Jews need a teaching about "karma" to pay for
sins, when we can have Forgiveness with the promise, "I will remember your
sins no more"? What Jew needs "reincarnation" when we've been promised
Resurrection? Why accept the existence of evil in G-d when we have
far better explanations in the books of Genesis, Job and Psalms?
Which "channeler" has a track record anywhere near that of our own Prophets
- and why are our people so ignorant of those amazing Jewish prophecies?
(Israelis will know what I'm talking about; the old saying is still repeated
by secular Israelis: "Anybody who lives in Israel and doesn't believe in
miracles is just not being realistic....")
It is not enough, however, to say we don't need NA; we
must disassociate ourselves from it in order to avoid the Divine judgment
which NAers are destined to reap for their alliance with those eternal
losers, the rebellious Hierarchy. Since the New Agers agree that
Babylon, the chief guardian of the "ageless wisdom", has never ceased to
exist spiritually, the following prophecy is quite as relevant for today
as when it was given to the physical kingdom:
(Jeremiah 51:5-7, literal translation from Hebrew:)
"For Israel has not been widowed, nor Judah, of his G-d the L-rd of Hosts,
though their land is filled with guilt more than with the Holy One of Israel.
Flee out of Babylon, and let every man save his life [or soul]; do not
be cut off in her iniquity; for it is a time of vengeance to the L-rd,
a wage He will pay to her. A cup of gold is Babylon in the hand of
G-d, making all the earth drunk; nations have drunk her wine; therefore
nations will go mad [yithollelu - interestingly, same root as Isaiah's
"the shining one" who fell from Heaven]. Suddenly has Babylon fallen and
The rest of that chapter is very interesting as well.
Israel is commanded, in addition to leaving physical Babylon, to specifically
"flee from the Kasdim" (Chaldeans); these were the elite sorcerers of Babylon
and possessors of the "secret doctrines". (see Isaiah 48:20; Jeremiah 50:8)
Arm your children with discernment. It is not possible to shield your children from the indoctrination
now in progress. The New Age is counting on the young generation
to usher in their Plan, and no
effort has been spared to reach them. If you filter the TV and movies,
they will get it through Disney productions and other innocent-looking
programs. If you turn off access to the Internet, they will find
it in many computer and video games. If you eliminate TV, computer
and movies, they will be exposed in the classroom, on the school computer
network, and in the libraries. If you home-school, they will learn
it at the homes of their relatives or friends. Limiting their circles
to "kosher" families, friends and organizations will not ensure their protection
either, since Jewish communities have long been infiltrated [see the Missionizing
Section]. Even relocating to Israel will not spare them from
the onslaught [see the survey of NA religions operating
in Israel, which only highlights the larger groups].
The only solution is to teach them how to spot the NA
indoctrination, how to test it with Torah, and how to actively reject it
for the fraud it is. Sit with them and point out examples (you'll
have no shortage of material). Rent a video and pause it periodically
to discuss with them why people find these concepts attractive, what is
wrong with them from a Torah standpoint, and also where the Jews are being
slandered in subtle ways. The role of villian in the more recent sci-fi
productions often has Jewish mannerisms, or alternately fits the description
of Bailey and others as a "vampire" who feeds on humanity; and occasionally
the bad guy is openly identified as Jewish (for example, the recent movie
version of _X Men_, where the archvillian is clearly a bitter Holocaust
survivor). In my own attempts to educate children, I have found that
kids as young as 7 can learn to identify NA messages with accuracy and
explain why they are unacceptable.
4. Restoring the Jewish Community
Reconcile and Reunite. No one can ignore the friction in the community over
different approaches to Jewish observance and lifestyle. It is not
my intention to endorse one over another, although my own choices have
been made with confidence. My point here is that this is no time to argue
over what is surely a footnote to the threat facing the community.
I stand by my contention that unless we rally around the Torah, our individual
faith will not stand the test to come. But even if we do not resolve this
issue, we have a better chance defending ourselves together than in separate
corners. The snap judgments of the secular against the "Torah fanatics"
and the orthodox against the "Torah breakers" must be replaced by a more
thoughtful examination of the Other Side, with the realization that a media
controlled by our common enemy will have an interest in feeding us misconceptions
about each other to divide
and conquer. If we have half a brain, we will invest more in
dialog, to make sure the Other Side learns who we are without having to
rely on the media. If we're really smart, we will make a joint commitment
to protect all Jews from being delegitimized by NA propaganda, even when
their lifestyle drives us up the wall.
Accelerate the gathering of Diaspora Jews to Israel. It is obvious now more than ever that the Jews have no
way of defending themselves outside the Land. When the Global Governance
system becomes operational, it will be international policy to discriminate
against Jews, to take away their children who have been "wrongly indoctrinated"
and to target the whole lot of us for "cleansing action".
The only defensible position for Jews of any persuasion
is to stand with their own people in their own land, where we have survived
enemy attacks time and again (though rationally we can't explain why...).
It is also the best defensive policy for Israel -- the more the better,
since even with G-d's help, "Five will chase one hundred" but "a hundred
will chase ten thousand." (Leviticus 26:8)
According to the published NA timetable, this leaves world
Jewry about one to three years to consolidate in their land before they
may be faced with the "Luciferic initiation"
or the alternative. (G-d may decide to postpone their Plan again as He
has apparently done several times, but who wants to gamble on this chance
with their family?)
5. Restoring an Ancient Relationship
If the NA has its way, the Jews will be eliminated, along
with any non-Jews who show loyalty to the Jewish Bible and people.
The latter group is clearly a potential ally in resisting NA domination,
but the largest contingent among these has ironically been the group under
heaviest suspicion by Jews: the evangelical Christians. Even more
ironically, this group more than any other has a faith system that most
closely parallels that of religious Jews. With those Evangelicals who are
not infected with "replacement theology" (which I suspect is a NA
invention anyway), Torah Jews are highly compatible. These alone
among the Christians are interested in moving backward theologically toward
the earliest roots of Christianity, where their first leaders were actually
Jews - and Jews who respected Torah, no less.
In a certain sense, this subgroup is the equivalent of
younger brothers to the Jews, with a potential for a relationship that
has not been as supportive in perhaps 1800 years. Yet most Jews continue
to single out these particular Christians as objects of suspicion and mistrust,
because of the strength of their convictions and their willingness to talk
about what they believe to everyone. Including Jews.
What's the matter with us? If a group
systematically excluded Jews from receiving information about any other
subject on earth, we would yell "antisemitism". Yet we react in anger and
disgust when these Christians refuse to discriminate against Jews in offering
what they consider valuable. The Jewish "Jesus allergy" belongs to
another time and place, when the Jews were a homeless people, second-class,
without right of refusal and at the mercy of a dominating Church (not evangelical,
I should point out, but Catholic) which was intent on forcing Church teaching
We welcome "interfaith" activities with the kinds of Christians
who won't bother us about their faith because they have none to share -
they don't take our Bible seriously anymore (and therefore, don't be surprised
if the day comes when they don't take Jews seriously either). Even
with the group which once offended us most, the Catholics, all is forgiven
since they no longer consider Jews worth recruiting. But we react
with medieval hostility to one of the strongest allies the Jews will ever
have, rejecting them precisely for the quality that makes them such firm
friends: they are so convinced of their beliefs that they think others
should consider them. Are we threatened by a group that believes
our Prophets strongly enough to see a Jewish Messiah in them? What
does that say about our attitude toward those Books which we ourselves
gave them? What does it say about our confidence in our own identity?
Some will reply that we avoid anything to do with the
Christians in general because of their habit of denigrating the Jewish
people for rejecting Jesus. Okay. Why aren't we avoiding and
ostracizing the New Agers from our communities for the same
reason? Our one-track idea of "soul stealers" has blinded us
to the point where far more souls are being stolen by pagan mystics than
by any church we know.
The New Age has an interest in keeping Jews and Evangelicals
at odds with each other. An alliance for mutual strengthening on
social and spiritual levels would present a formidable front to the NA
onslaught on both our communities.
They would happily encourage us to continue viewing Evangelicals as "deceptive"
for explaining their faith in terms of our traditions, while they plant
suspicions among the Christians that orthodox Jews are "deceptive" for
secretly slandering Gentiles in our Talmud. An organization like
"Toward Tradition" must infuriate
NAers because it is successfully bringing observant Jews and evangelical
Christians together to work in a broad area of common values, without allergic
reactions to the faith of the other side. Curiously, it bothers many
Jews for the same reason: the historical friction and mutual suspicion
have been set aside for more urgent issues, and that alone constitutes
grounds for suspicion. (See "Onward
Christians' Rabbi", _The Jerusalem Report_, Apr.24, 2000)
If this Jewish-Christian cooperation spreads, there's
no telling what damage it may do to The Plan.
6. Restoring Disillusioned New
Here I have in mind Jews primarily, but any human being
who is willing to listen is worthy of our efforts. After all, our G-d has
promised to take a people for Himself from among the nations (see Isaiah
51:4 and Amos 9:12, among others). What better "world service" could
we perform than to offer the one thing that NA is trying to withhold from
these seekers? Just think: our unique G-d is now the "forbidden
fruit" in the Garden of Aquarius! And there will certainly
be hungry inhabitants in that Garden who have discovered that the standard
fare leaves one rather hollow inside.
Mount an aggressive campaign of information. Judging from my own personal dialog with many in the
various NA networks, even those in direct contact with spirit guides have
doubts at times about the validity of their path. Some have expressed
disillusionment over the savage power struggles, back-stabbing and ego
trips running rampant among supposedly "enlightened" people, even at the
highest levels. It appears that the world peace, unity and goodwill
(at least at this stage) are falling short of all the rosy predictions.
I believe that this will always be the case unless true repentance (in
Biblical terms) takes place. But I also believe that, as the NAers
themselves predict, there will eventually be a leader strong enough to
force a semblance of unity on all parties, using psychic or spiritual power
(probably gained by the "Luciferic initiation") to whip them into line.
Until that time, we must take advantage of the disarray
in the NA ranks. Besides the weak points noted above, here are others
that can be used:
6a. "The Masters" and their slaves:
Many "initiates" are disappointed in their failure to find the inner peace
they were promised. Instead they are struggling with psychic powers
going out of control, unpleasant "visitations" from spirits, and nameless
overwhelming fears, all of which increase the "higher" they "ascend".
It is almost taboo for them to admit to these frightening problems, but
such people will be open to possible explanations. To them I propose
the following thought:
As mentioned before, some information has been (and likely
is now being) withheld from the public by NA leaders, on the pretext that
people are not yet "evolved" enough to accept it. Such items of information
revealed lately, however, have turned out to be not deep concepts, but
unpalatable programs which a few short years ago were considered immoral
- thus the real obstacle was that they could not be revealed until the
public resistance was weaker. In this context, even the highest level
New Agers, those at the level of Robert
Muller, ought to be asking themselves how they can be sure the "ascended
masters" have been straight with even their highest human disciples.
I would submit that just as NA leaders have hidden certain "controversial"
elements of the Plan from the public, there can just as easily be parts
of the Plan kept from all humanity by these "benevolent" spirit
guides, proposals which would meet with human resistance, even from Robert
Muller, if fully known. The increasing lack of personal serenity
and equilibrium as one moves toward the future "initiation" ought to raise
questions, for that was not part of the deal.... For such seasoned political
double-talkers and cynical "reshapers of society" as those in the NA to
never imagine they might be beaten at their own game by a higher intelligence
shows astonishing naivete.
6b. Why are They afraid of the Jewish Force?
One reality of life which stubbornly refuses to be explained away by the
most clever NA arguments is: our presence. The Jews, supposedly
an inferior race, have not only somehow survived the centuries which wiped
out all other contemporary civilizations (including super-charged Atlantis
and the Third Reich), but survived intensive attempts by enemies to "help"
it into oblivion.
We as a people are a monkey wrench in the NA theory of
human evolution, mainly because our G-d is a thorn in the eye of the "ascended
masters". Get rid of the Jews and their Book, and their G-d will
disappear too - or at least be proven faithless. But they seem powerless
to do it, and as a result they openly hate our G-d. (I'm speaking of the
"higher intelligences" now, since they are the self-proclaimed authors
of the cosmic War to the death.) A declaration of war implies the
recognition of a threatening power to be opposed - a dead giveaway that
the "ascended masters" know our G-d exists; not only that, but His strength
is dreaded (all their recorded ridicule notwithstanding).
One might be annoyed by a fiction, but one would certainly
not feel threatened - especially entities at the level of enlightenment
and self-control which the "Hierarchy" claims. Those who respond
that the "Masters" have declared war only on "the outmoded idea" of the
Jewish G-d must explain why the "Masters" themselves confess that the physical
Jewish people have always been and continue to be their target, down to
the last person. "Ideas" are eliminated through education. People
are eliminated through physical death.
More than anything, New Agers respect displays of power
and supernatural events. It should be pointed out to them that even
if they consider this G-d of the Jews only an "idea", it must be one powerful
"Idea" to preserve a distinct people against impossible odds and a long
line of enemies over 4000 years. It clearly beat anything the Atlanteans
had, since their civilization collapsed in competition with it. The New
Age shouldn't be so quick to reject an Idea with that kind of "vibration
level" - perhaps they should read the Bible for themselves before rejecting
7. Answering the Challenge -
Spirit to Spirit
We need to remember that the New Agers are the human puppets
of an unseen adversary in this war. The real battle is actually raging
over all our heads; their gods vs. our G-d.
But calling it a "spiritual" war does not keep the battle
in the ethereal and abstract realms. As we have seen, the Hierarchy's
War must be anchored on earth, among flesh and blood people, in order
to carry on. In Biblical accounts of wars involving Israel, the line
between the spiritual and the physical was usually a dotted line - crossovers
between the seen and the unseen worlds were taken as a matter of course.
Modern Israelis are aware of the same porous state between material and
spiritual, again most noticeable during the many wars (declared and otherwise)
this nation has sustained in its 53 short years.
Spiritual wars call for spiritual weapons.
According to the Torah, G-d Himself is both shield and sword for Israel
(Deuteronomy 33:29). In the Prophets, we see the valiant warrior
Gideon launching his attack on the Midianites with a dual arsenal: "a sword
for the L-rd and for Gideon!" (Judges 7:20) The servants of G-d are given
words which function as effectively as a "sharp sword". (Isaiah 49:2)
Specifically, the very words of the Prophets are weapons which can cut
an adversary of G-d to bits (Hosea 6:5). For this reason alone, every
Jew who takes a stand against the NA threat ought to become adept at finding
the right words in the Prophets for each situation.
Build your expertise in handling these powerful spiritual
weapons. How does such a weapon work? Simpler than you think.
Do as the prophets themselves did: speak the appropriate words of G-d to
whoever needs to hear them, human or spirit. (Be prepared for possible
confrontations with hostile spirit guides.) G-d will see to the rest,
including guidance on what physical steps should be taken. (Naturally,
one can't really do this if one lacks the faith to deal with unseen realities.
The first step may be to study the examples of those who did have such
faith, namely the prophets, judges and righteous kings of Israel.)
Two of my favorite personal weapons:
The first is addressed to the NA Hierarchy and their servants
- Isaiah 8:9-14 (with various possible translations from the literal Hebrew).
Its relevance will intrigue readers who have stayed with me through the
Rage, you peoples, and be shattered; and give
ear, all remote places of the earth. Gird yourselves, and you will be shattered;
gird yourselves, and you will be shattered. Take counsel with advice [or,
as in some translations, devise a Plan], but it will come to nothing; speak
the word, but it will not stand, for G-d is with us.
For thus the L-rd spoke to me with a strong hand and disciplined
me from walking in the way of this people, saying: "You are not to say,
A conspiracy! to all that this people say is a conspiracy [literally, Connection!
to all which this people say is interconnected], and you shall not fear
their fear or be afraid of it [esteem it/him]. It is the L-rd of Hosts
whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, and He shall
be your dread [or, high esteem]. Then He will become a sanctuary...."
The second one - Isaiah 60:1-2 - is dedicated to the Jewish
people, who are not going to be left in the dark when the Age of Aquarius
descends on this planet:
