One of our inalienable rights and powers as endowed upon us by our Creator is the ability to fight and defend our freedoms and liberties and the right to rebel against tyranny. But like with the Hebrews in the Bible at the Red sea when the Pharoe and his chariot troops were in pursuit the sea did not part for the Israelites saving them till Nachson ben Aminadav jumped in. It takes brave men to take up a just cause and lead others to go first. As America is now turning into a anti Religious socialist nanny state with unsustainable social welfare expenditures. Who is going to stand up before its to late to defend the values that the founding fathers of the United States held dear ? Will there be enough people who will stand up and not blindly follow the crowd to make a difference. Or will the NEW WORLD ORDER of the Globalization movement be left to take over and America as we knew it will be NO MORE ?
There comes a time to take a stand, to stand up for what one loves and knows is true. Being self centered ignoring whats going on around us will not help, eventually one can find them themselves caught in the trap and then it may be too late. Burying one’s head in the sand offers no salvation from tyranny. If one does not make a contribution to make things right in the world, in a passive way they are contributing to what is wrong. Saying I have faith in God and everything will be ok is a cop out which Jews said before they were led to the gas chambers. Global evil does not just disappear on its own, it must be stopped.
There are forces, evil men right now who seek to control you, to steal your money, livelihood, control your lives, your welfare and your future. and if given their way things are going to get really bad.
People will need to fight for their own freedoms and face the ruthless wrath of an oppressive government that cares nothing for you or for your individual rights.
Are you ready to become a slave?
If not this is a call to action.
When we think of slavery we imagine some thing from our long-gone past. where an individual has no rights or privileges whatsoever. All their time belongs to another called their owner. In the modern western world we imagine ourselves so much better. But think about, how much better are we really? Just how free are we? Let’s look at the facts.
Are you free to use your time as you please, or is most of your time used up slaving at work.
Today, as the Hebrews in ancient Egypt were, many of us have become slaves. Like in Egypt our servitude began voluntarily. We are slaves to an economic system, to a conformist society that demands the sacrifice of sacred religious beliefs and compliance to views and ideas that contradict the very foundations of morals, truth and the natural order as created by God.
Are we even free to believe, express and practice our beliefs as we want ?
Ask American Christians who wish to build a manger scene for their Christmas holiday in their small town public squares.
Everything that is good and right is under terrible assault. Everyone today who holds by what is good and right are under attack. They are condemned as being politically incorrect and socially shunned. God fearing, religious people of moral integrity, who know the difference between right and wrong are under massive attack. It is not their bodies being assaulted (at least not yet), but rather their minds.
No you are not allowed to express their faith in God.
It has become illegal, though it is a American tradition.
This is because there is a vocal small minority that resents this and expresses objection to it. The so-called “progressives” embrace ungodly agendas and are defiantly proud of it! They are enemies of freedom, in whatever forms it takes. The anti-religious vocal secular minority rejoice as they loudly yell their battle-cry against everything moral and right. “Down with the old and in with the new.” This is the “battle cry” Yet, the old they seek to destroy is the Way of God, the new they seek to impose is God-less secularism, atheism and governmental control of everything “from cradle to grave.” , This is really the descent into slavery “from cradle to grave” and even beyond.
Who gave them the right to rule American values. Modesty was once a virtue, but looks like it becoming a forgotten one in the western world. Society is moving in the opposite direction thanks to the media which is always “pushing the envelope” further.
Allowing views of the vast majority to be repressed.
This is just one of many examples of outright religious persecution occurring now right here in the United
States against Christians and others of Biblical faith under the false Guise of the so-called separation of Church and State, according to the First Amendment of the American Constitution.
Yet this is ever so far from the truth. As said before a manger in the public square is a American tradition.
The resentment against such public religious displays,
The first amendment reads :
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Any one can see that by the first amendment Government is not charged to remove religion from the public forum as is now happening today. It says the opposite. That congress does not have the right to “prohibit the free exercise of religion; or abridge the freedom of speech” The First Amendment only tells us that government should not endorse one religion over another.
The American founding fathers inspired by Biblical examples.
George Washington said:
“I now make it my earnest prayer the God would have you and the State over which you preside, in His holy protection, that he would incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another,”
June 8, 1783
Beliefs of the Founding Fathers
They stood up against the repression of European England. And here we are again today, with now emancipated American again being tread upon by the crushing heal of European socialism and snobbery.
The Jewish people and the State of Israel are now subject to European antisemitism and its new found partner extremist Islam. You want to talk about a loss of freedom and rights look at the Jewish Israelis who lived in Gaza when their government sent in armed troops to throw them out from their homes and to turn over their land to the enemies of the state. Although performed in the name of peace, it was known then and proven now that no peace was ever accomplished , it was all a lie.
The government of Israel clearly acted against the interests of its own citizens robbed them of their livelihoods and their own homes. There is no greater definition of betrayal than this.
Who gave government the right to throw people out of their homes?
Who gave government the right to force its citizens under penalty of law to purchase health-care insurance that they do not desire to have?
Only a government out of control, a repressive regime
acts deceptively to confuse the public and under the guise of acting for the common good to enact laws that violate natural inalienable rights of individuals and then produce information campaigns to lie to the people persuading them to surrender their rights and freedoms for some assumed
greater good. The new masters proclaim, “all are equal, but some are more equal than others.” This is the deception of tyrants. They Begin with a lie, and is maintain their platform with a lies. The lie is in the name of “social justice,” these deceivers want to take control of everything and be in charge of everything. So that they can make sure that there will be their version of equality for all which really means everyone will be equally enslaved, except those who are in charge. They feed the masses massive amounts of false and confusing information,
propaganda. They hope eventually the truth will become forgotten and all that will remain true is the big lie.
Bible believing, God fearing patriotic Americans and Bible believing, God fearing, patriotic Israelis share one thing in common, their governments have betrayed them and their own nations founding principles. They have turned into monsters the likes of which have only been known in dictatorships and in the worst nightmares.
Traditional moral Americans cannot any longer even express many of their Bible-based views. If they speak out against the immorality of abortion or homosexuality, they are immediately condemned in the public media and called all kinds of names. They may even face legal prosecution, persecution. People have no right to make God’s Biblical laws “illegal” and to hold those hold by them into criminals. Civil law was intended to protect all members of society from abuses. Not to force the population to renounce their own beliefs and abandon their Biblical Morality for the will of the ruling class of the state and inflict punishments on members of the population who refuse to walk their immoral unethical line.
Simply the Evil-doers desire to become free from submission to God’s Will. In this generation the “other side” has shown them a way. Now they simply declare that there is no real God, that all religion is nonsense. They are in for a rude awakening.
Many have already been deceived into “believing in” the so-called “right” to act immorally and irresponsibly against the Divine and natural order of the creation . People’s beliefs are being manipulated and intentionally confused. The lines between right and wrong are more and more becoming blurred. Right and wrong are switching places and the majority does not see it or even seem to care.
There are those who say individuals should be “free” to act however they choose. But this is not really freedom we are talking it is chaos. This results in the law of the jungle, where “dog eats dog.” This is not natural for man to live this way. With out the natural moral code which is the back bone of society cultures, peoples and nations implode in the savagery of the jungle. Where there is no law and order, and everyone acts selfishly for themselves. This is where the evil dictator comes in and rules by ruthless repression. Here we come to the worst expressions of human depravity. This has happened so many times in the past like in the Biblical Sodom and Gomorrah and it is happening again right now around us, everywhere. The masses just follow the pack. Like mindless zombies people support political oppression, without examining what it is they are supporting. No one bothers to make the effort to think for themselves any more. Their modern faith-less masters of the media think for them and tell them what to believe and what is right and wrong. Those who control the media control Their thoughts. They may run around even believing they are fighting for your rights and liberty and they are willing to use violent methods in order to achieve their goals. Fror them all that matters is the fight, their
irrational twisted cause they are taught to embrace and to hate for. They are slaves to brainwashed into the ideology. Of course they do not acknowledge themselves to be slaves they have chosen to deceive themselves into believing that they are masters. There is nothing sadder than to see a slave who deludes himself into thinking he is free.
This is similar to the case centuries ago in ancient Israel when the Greeks with there secular agenda ruled the land and made every effort to force the Jews to give up their Torah-based religion. Eventually this led to the Maccabee revolt (the story of Hanuka).
Any government overstepping its bounds and restricting its citizens free rights are themselves causing great harm.
Such governments, such philosophies and their adherents must go.
Eventually public outrage will grow and a popular uprising will explode into rebellion against the repressive authority and the moral and God fearing will fight to take back those rights which are the due of all men. Men are not meant to fear their governments, they are meant to fear God. If government is established to uphold natural common law then this is for the good. But once government oversteps its bounds and seeks to enslave its people with laws contradicting fundamental inalienable laws as ordained by God, the people have the moral obligation to rise up and reclaim that which is rightfully theirs. It is never easy to lift this heavy burden, it takes self sacrifice. We can change things. Both the American and Israeli political systems can be changed. From both of these natural allies, the internal forces in government and society that act against the interests of sound government and against a safe, balanced and normal Society must be removed from places of power. We must learn to stand together as patriots for freedom, justice and the Biblical way (what was once the American way) and restore honor to government and to society at large.
Long ago wise King Solomon said, there is nothing new under the sun.
In Biblical times, Abraham stood up against the Religious repression of the evil dictator Nimrod, Moses stood up against Pharaoh and the Maccabees stood up against the Greeks. You can’t run away! You can’t ignore this fight.
Religious repression comes in many shapes and ways whether disguised as freedom, enlightenment or progress. In the end, it strips a man of his inalienable rights as
ordained by our blessed Creator. Death in this battle is death eternal. What will die may not be only the body of
flesh and blood, but rather your immortal soul. Either you fight to keep your soul alive or a very subtle vicious enemy will fight relentlessly to kill your soul within you. You have no choice and no place to run. You are on the front now and taking fire.
It is nothing other that a devious plot by the forces of evil that seek to enslave the human soul. The forces of evil work subtly and deceptively. And that is exactly what evil is doing!
Get up stand up, stand up. stand up for your rights !
Whether you like it or not, you are a soldier at the front lines of the greatest and most ruthless war of all times.
You, yes you, are a fighter in the trenches in the great war between the forces of good and evil.
Filed under: Hanukkah
Chanukah is about revolution. It is a reminder to stand up against the oppression. Especially when the nations values and politics have overcome the government of the
Jewish people living in the land of Isreal. It is a time to establish a truly Torah government.
The victory of Chanuka requires pride, sacrifice and resolve. You must live its virtues not just talk about them in prayer. They are not a thing of the past they are powers of Chanukah. Compromise is a weakness that victors cannot afford. Freedom is reserved for those who fight for it. Standing up against all the odds is the Macabee way. Standing up for the Divine truth. Chanuka is a time to remember the price of victory. It is not cheap!
We can light all the Chanuka lights that we want but we must remember that the purpose of light is to cancel out darkness. We will never cancel out darkness or defeat evil all the while that we lack the commitment and resolve and the sacrifice necessary to win the day. All our Chanuka lights will be nothing but hollow and empty shells if we fail to remember what it is that they are supposed to really be.
Chanukah is a time of ever increasing light. This is seen and accomplished through the service of Chanukah which includes lighting of the “Menorah”. The main service of Chanukah is the illumination of the darkness of night with the manorah in increasing intensity from 1 to 9 lights including the ”shamash”. It was on the first night of Chanukah the 25th of kislev
that Antiocos made the temple into a shrine for idolatry. This was the darkest
moment when the house of GOD became a place unfit for his dwelling .This
was the climax of the decent of the Jewish people led by their ”high society” as they slid down to the
depth of spiritual depravity being absorbed in the ”upper class” (Greek) values of their day, which was called HELLenism. The enemy may have stimulated the decline of Yisrael from outside yet the real enemy was within, it was ourselves. We allowed non-Torah values to
infect us to the point that a Cohen Gadol (High Priest) was placed in the temple who had values opposite that of the Torah.
The enemy was within but salvation came from without and within as only a small
group of Cohaniem who were living in the hills were able to bring about the
spiritual redemption of our people. Reclaiming the Holy Temple, with the miracle of
the oil, and the physical miraculous victory where our enemies were concurred. On
Chanukah we went from the darkest darkness of our souls, spiritually and physically
captured under the dominion of strangers, yet we came to witness miracles and
salvation. The Greeks deliberately and methodically defiled all the oil in the Temple. They purposefully wanted to stamp out the means for Yisrael to serve God. The existence and discovery of one undefiled cruse – despite the aggressive efforts of the Greeks – was a miracle in and of itself. The Megillat Antiochus tells us that the Hasmonean Kohanim “They found only one cruse of oil which was sealed with the insignia of the Holy Kohen from the time of Samuel the prophet.”
We came to witness oil that burned miraculously. That which had the
physical potential to burn for one day burned for eight. This infinite quality of oil represents the permutation of the
spiritual quality of oil, which from kabalah we learn is ” chuchmah ” (creative inspiration), right into this
It is known that ”chuchmah” (Divine wisdom-creative power) is above space and time. Thus we see its revelation in this physical world “mamash”. The oil from the Manora allows us to Contemplate the surrounding lights and עליון רצון (supernal will). We know rabbi Moshe Chym Lazatto says this light comes around every year for those who are there to receive it, blessed are those who reach this time. Now the ”Chuchmah” (Divine Wisdom-creativity) dresses itself in our dedication as Chanukah means dedication. Chanukah being the celebration of our dedication to Holiness, which is during the time of ”chanuc” (dedication) of the alter as described in the Torah in the book of ”Bamidbar” (Numbers), the dedication of the temple by King Salomon, the dedication of the temple by Yehuda Macabbe, and today our personal dedication to the Holy Blessed One NOW.
Our personal dedication to the Torah is the absolute fixing of the present exile of
Edom (the west ), which is rooted in Yavan (greek culture ), which is the
source of the hellinism that Yehuda Macabee rebelled against. Yavon is the same
spelling as Zion, except for missing the letter צ ’sawde”. A sawdeek is represented by
Yosef ha Sadeek. He represents the sefira yesod. As taught by rabbi Shimon bar
Yochi yesod is 9th of the sefirot, it is as the 8 Chanukah lights and the ”shamash”. They are paralleled by
the 7 lights of the manorah in the temple, and the bulb where the branches meet. Thus it is said by kindling the
Chanukah manorah the manorah in the Holy Temple is lit. On Chanukah there shines the lights of ס”ג
(light of Divine underatanding) to Z’a (source of the Ruach, emotional soul). ס”ג =חנה and יהו”ה (is Z’a)=וכ
together is חנוכה . Every aspect can be lit up by נר (lamps) of chanucah. Thus נר
is gematria of the Yichudim (unifications) of אהי”ה אלהי”ם אדנ”י each with יהו”ה = נר.
Rabbi Ashlag teaches that all 25 Parzufim (divine faces of revelation) come down to
Prophets, they being attached to the highest powers.
This all shines on Chanukah. חן (favor) from the revelation of the 8 days of Chanukah is as a Temple offering or ”Brit Mealah” (circucision) which both must wait till the 8th day. We receive זאת (SHECHINAH) Chanukah by the revelation of the oil (Chuhmah) that illuminates making one’s face to Shine. This Shining is חן. This is what one must find in their wife (Shechinah) as said in the end of Gemora Gitten. The כלה (bride) being the Shechinah. This being revealed as the perfection of man. This is the ”Gadlut” (greatness) of Yaakov which is called Yisrael. This is the סלום (ladder) from heaven. This is the ו . In this time of Chanukah ”dedication”, this is accomplished by doing what Yehuda Ha Makaabe stood for rebelling against what Yavan represents which is striving for beauty alone without the discretion or recognition of GOD which, thus the pursuit of beauty becomes completely a reflection of the love of the body, and self love. Thus we see reason for their obsession with sports, the human body the main theme of their visual arts, and there obsession with abstract intellectual thought. All the things have only one end the glorification of one self, this is the ultimate product of the philosophy of the Greeks, but when the letter צ ’sawde’ is added to the word’ Yavan’ (Greek) it becomes Zion. Thus when one adds ’sawde’ representing yesod, the power of making the most complete revelation of GOD out of all things and places. Perfect uprightness ,acting as a sadeek. Then true perfect beauty is realized. So, on Chanukah we need to dedicate to GOD the beauty that which is unique to ourselves as we each have a different face. So our relationship to GOD is a personal thing . It is our personal expression of beauty in Divine service. We see in the writing of our sages so many things called “hadar mitzvah”, which is performing the mitzvah in a way which is more than is required by the letter of the law. This is why Chanukah is called holiday of the Oral Torah. All Yisrael are required to fulfill the 613 commandments of the Torah. Since we don’t have a temple now, may it be rebuilt soon some mitzvot involving temple service and other mitzvot due to our lackings can only be fulfilled by learning about them. All the mitzvot that we do bind us together. This is the fulfillment of the letter of the law but this is not enough, as it says in the Talmud “ if only the letter of the law was fulfilled, no one could exist ”. If one only does the least that is required what kind of love does this express ?.
A mitzvah is a vessel for the love of GOD. A pitcher holds water so has an intrinsic beauty to its form, yet with ornate engravings it becomes something to behold. If this thing is a mitzvah that has become beautified it is truly something to love. Each person needs to express themselves with in the mitzvot with the uniqueness of their Nashama, this is to discover ourselves, and GOD’s great source of light within each of us.
It is a time to manifest עזות הקושה (brazenness of Holiness) against the “sitra achra” (other side). By this is the perfection of the mitzvot. It is by this that we become Holy, which means separate. Each of us establishing our own personal relationship with GOD. As it say in Leviticus ”sanctify yourselves and be holy ”. This being sanctification in the permitted or separation. Such as cutting the bread slightly before blessing or doing a ”Tynet debor” (fast of speech). Not speaking is equal to many fasts of food. It is the uniqueness of the individual that makes the ultimate fixing for the creation. It is this individuality that is the complete fixing against the exile of Edom. As they want conformity, a lack of individuality , every one to conform to a certain standardization. As taught by Rabbi Kahana in Pesicta Edom the offspring of Yavan (Greek values) tries to push Yisrael off the Torah path to conform to its values ” be like every one else ”. The perfection of the commandments defeats the darkness of exile. It is this dedication that is required. Now lets look specifically at how the klipa (evil) of Yavan Edom attacks.
In the era of Chanukah the Greeks made laws forbidding observance the Rosh Chodesh (new moon), Shabot ,and circumcision . Chodesh being sanctification in time, Shabot being sanctification in spirituality through action, and circumcision sanctification in the most physical our bodies. It is these institutions that Yavan chose to strike at as they are at the root of our service to GOD. by observance of rosh chodesh we make known our time belongs to GOD. With shabbot we realize the spiritual impact of our actions which we might have thought were in consequential, such as turning on a light. While the circumcision Yavan fought against actually represents the sanctification of GOD with our bodies. That the most physical things we are involved in should be dedicated to divine will.
It’s said by Rashi that Yaakov went back across the river to pick up the small bottles that were filled with oil for Chanukah that he had left there. This oil was oil made from the olives of the olive branch brought back to Noah by the dove after the flood. It was when doing this that Yaakov came across the supernal angel of Edom (the west ), and he wrestled with him and won at Bait Ael which illudes to the place of the Holy temple. This shows us by the power of Chanukah we can concur the exile of Edom. As yaakov did fulfilling the verse “ I will punish the Hosts on high “. The threat of Yaakov getting the Chanukah oil was enough to arouse the angel of Asev, Edom to attack him.
Another matter we need to look at is what it means to us that on Chanukah that Asev can only be defeated when Yosef is with Yehuda. Yehuda alone cannot defeat Asev. This brings us to explain Masiach ben Yosef and David. Yuhudah is the fulfillment of the letter of the law. Yosef is service of a personal nature, above that which is required. The god of the Greeks was a impersonal unreachable god. To them god was the unapproachable authority. By the service of Yosef one fulfills the words of the Torah ”I shall dwell in your midst ” . This is how Yavan the exile of Edom is defeated. One must fulfill the mitzvot regularly this is Yehuda, but not only this but in a beautiful way by this we will overcome the present exile. We see the blending of these two aspects in the mitzvah of the Chanukah manora. As almost every one in Isreal fulfills the letter of the law of this mitzvah, being the aspect of Yehuda, yet in many homes even of those who claim to not be religious we find more than one manora lit this being the ”hadar” above the letter of the law being the aspect of Yosef.
