The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription


IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

    • Behold Beloved — the better way…
      – Christ’s everlasting Kingdom
      – spiritual and eternal within
      – by which Messiah ever prevails

      Though all wood, stubble, and hay
      – burn away with intense heat
      – blown like castles in the sand
      – or card houses of the damned

      No alternative can compare…
      – to the heart-to-heart connection
      – that the citizens of Christ’s Kingdom
      – have through the Holy Ghost

      Not the image of the beast
      – nor reality simulation
      – nor legal corporation
      – nor collective hive mind AI

      By parable we were told…
      – of the great net cast into the world
      – and the great price of the hidden pearl
      – and how the born again do enter in

      We can’t serve two masters…
      – without divided loyalties
      – or double minded motives
      – new wine needs new vessels

      Would instead your banners shine…
      – as ambassadors of reconciliation
      – and warriors arrayed in parade
      – clothed in the Holy Armor of God

      That rule and reign with Christ…
      – His staff and rod overcoming
      – as the old clay pots shatter
      – dead horns bowled o’er by Living Stone

      Overcome your old man Beloved…
      – dying to self daily at the cross
      – leaving you fore father’s houses for
      – the many mansions of Our Father’s House

      Why halt between two opinions…
      – or be gored on horns of dilemma
      – or grab both ears of dogs & swine
      – get off the fence & choose who you serve

      Or would you travail in the wilderness…
      – until you’re stripped of the gold of egypt
      – and ground to dust and ash like idols of babylon
      – instead of just boldly entering The Promised Land

      For those In The Vine and of The Household…
      – why squander your inheritance
      – or turn to the beggars life
      – or eat the leftover husks of pigs

      How many ways must it be said…
      – or how many parables told
      – for an old salt like Peter only three
      – so wake up Beloved — open your eyes

      And never look back, unlike Lot’s wife

  1. Happy Fourth of July to you as well!

    It’s amazing how easily a people can become content with totalitarianism. Although, just 5 years before 1776, the American people were happy subjects of the British Empire. A lot can change in a short time; although, it has basically come to the point in which the only way a recovery can happen is if there is a complete collapse where the government cannot help anyone. Riots will break out, but when all is said and done, the survivors will be able to rebuild from scratch. It may be grim, but there’s not many other options.

  2. This is a must read for all, especially on the fourth of July! This is mind blowing. I am always amazed at this myself:

    “http://www.threemacs.org/docs/Americas%20Hebraic%20Roots%20-%20The%20Tabernacle%20And%20America’s%20Creation.pdf”

  3. LA just wanted to ask what happened to last nights Acceleration Radio. I downloaded it this morning from the site and it was only 3 seconds long. Can you repost the show please? Also, I was able to binge watch Watchers 1-7 last week with a friend. WOW they were fantastic. God Bless You and keep up the great work.

    Steve

  4. Note to Pete: There is no footage of them moving the body. I misspoke. I realized my mistake after I had posted yesterday. Those points you made about it being dodgy are indeed merited in my opinion. But, given the fact that this guy made no money off of his videos and the fact he has had his youtube videos deleted and generally messed with by the powers that be give me some pause about automatically dismissing it at the same time. Honestly, I think I too am undecided about it. At first when I posted it yesterday, I leaned toward it being authentic. But now, Just not sure.

    • Another note to Pete,

      Best not to:
      Confuse a bum in a Burka with a pig in a poke or a frog in a sock with a mystery bag.

      G`day cobber

    • HI, Corey.

      I meant no disrepect to you, and I appreciate your providing the link, afterall, it is of interest to most who visit here at LA’s blog since most of us would agree that there are entities from other dimensions (re Nephilim etc, and particularly when related with Bible accounts and prophecies). Also, I don’t doubt that there would have been covert or unpublicized space missions, be they USA’s or the USSR, or combined, and nowadays India and China are sending up rockets, too.

      I apologize if my comment seemed smart-alec, but it was one that was more directed at the author of the ufos daily website.

      Mention on local news tonight about a survey regarding numbers viewing TV and those watching Youtube.

      Youtube now far exceeds those numbers of people that watch TV – I know I don’t watch much TV, anymore, more choice to select from the internet for what is of specific interest to me (such as the subjects raised here at LA’s website). 🙂 The survey was taken from those over the 18+ years of age bracket. Needless to say, both mediums (TV/Youtube) can be very influential. I would only presume that those younger would probably number even more for the Youtubes and other channels on the internet. For instance, those that idolize the Jackass gang and invent stunts or imitate their actions. It’s not just limited to Jackass crazy stunts and UFO yarns, there’s also those who want to instill a belief (whatever kind, true and false) in people’s minds.
      I can remember a current affair type show, from years ago, interviewing a young man who became so obsessed with literature about ‘end of the world’ and ‘new world order/illuminati’ type subjects that it caused him a nervous breakdown – and that was from before internet days. Surprisingly, it wasn’t me, because I was heavily obsessed with that stuff, but I’ve learned to not accept and believe anything and everything that was written. I still have an interest in those things, too, but I try to be a bit more careful these days. I’ll keep my trust in God’s Word – the Holy Bible.

      Thanks for reply, Corey.

      PS… I hope and pray that you good people in the USA are safe and well. I see (from news reports) that there is some nasty weather about the place over there. I have relatives of my mother over there (New York, and in one of the Virginia states) so the USA does have a special place in my heart. I hope to get over there one day and meet some of you… and annoy you in person! If not, you’re all welcome here, too, and I’ll throw a prawn err shrimp on the barbie! 🙂

      Happy 4th of July. Wonderful creation, the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence.

      God Bless the USA! and Israel, and Australia!

      Azurecue! Howzitgoin’, Digger! 🙂 Your recommendation is duly noted! (as said, thy sisters didst traumatizeth oneth with their shopping expeditions!)

      ON a sadder note, I hope the billion-dollar soccer stadiums stand better than that overpass which collapsed yesterday. It’s a miracle more weren’t killed/injured. God Bless you, too, mate!

    • Pete… No need to apologize. I didn’t take it as smart alec. I just don’t always remember to put the smile faces after my comments to display the attitude or emotion in which I’m saying something. When I don’t do that, sometimes it can come off different I suppose. I consider it constructive bantering back and forth🙂

      If I ever make it down to Australia I am sure gonna take you up on that offer! I’ve always wanted to visit Australia. Seems like an awesome place.

    • Pete, the roof came down with a Brazilian win:

      Brazil 2 x 1 Colombia -bye bye

      *July 8th, Brazil x Germany (Semi-finals)

      P.S. Shame above the overpass, it could have been worse.

      The Lord be with you. Blessing to all.

    • Thanks, Corey. I didn’t want you to think I was being condescending toward you, as I accept that you, and I, are both passionate about keeping an eye out for things of interest, researching, and presenting some items here.

      Azureceu. Just finished watching what was such an intense game (Brazil v Columbia)! That second Brazil goal was a ripper. I was surprised there weren’t more yellow and red cards given- just for falling over – let alone the harder contacts, particularly during second half. Well done, Brazil.

      Nomemoleste! WOW! The main character reminds me of someone I know.🙂

      It was creepy for a while there from the start, but the ending was a relief! Thanks for the reminders to put on the whole armour of God, too.

    • @ Corey: Personally, I wouldn’t write off the supposed Apollo Mission 20. Appears Wm. Rutledge may be real. According to this website ” http://www.angelismarriti.it/ANGELISMARRITI-ENG/REPORTS_ARTICLES/Apollo20-NewEvidence.htm” Rutledge was interviewed in 2007.

      The author goes into great detail substantiating Rutledge’s claim…

      If our government weren’t so secretive or deceiving, we would discount the story immediately. But that’s not the case is it?

      Wikipedia lends itself to discount the Apollo 20 mission but I already am understanding that NASA is now involved in overseeing the Wikipedia website which now makes me think twice how credible Wikipedia has become.

      Morningstar believes there’s sufficient credibility in Rutledge’s claim. I’ll wait out the info until proven otherwise…

    • Pete, Speaking of harder contacts Brazil’s forward Neymar is out of the World Cup, he fractured his vertebrae, bad time for Brazil to lose its star player.
      -Lets play Rugby and they all fall down.

      Nome, look under your bed before you go to sleep tonight.
      -Geppetto

    • @ dust bunnies under beds…
      – whether cosmic dust or moon’s
      – our first domestic drone armies
      – were sent to decimate them
      – suspect collusion with spiders

      turns out fractally dimensioned

      ps. might be why some see rabbit in moon
      pps. no tickee no laundry

    • Pete, if you ever make it to the US, you are always welcome to stop by and stay a few days, and check out the area. Lot of cool things to see and do in my area. And for the record I always felt Australia and New Zealand were the places I wanted to visit most in the world… definitely on my bucket list.

    • Maryland crabs + fourth of July = heaven on earth.

      Blessings to all on our day of independence. May we always remain that way!

    • Ahhhh, must of heard of my 2013 4 of July mishap heh Rose? Note to self, do not buy fireworks from back of a Carny’s van with a sign in the window that reads “we take food stamps”…quick fuse on those Chinese fireworks held in warehouse from Guangdong Province since 1978

  5. We, too, shall sound the alarm from His holy mountain!
    We, too, shall follow in His footsteps.
    We, too, shall hold dear to our bosom, freedoms borne.
    We, too, shall sing His songs of liberty.
    We, too, shall behold His glory in our salvation.
    We, too, shall look across our barren, dry land and declare His words rebuking the enemy.
    We, too, shall embrace His majesty joyfully.
    We, too, shall hold that all truths be told that all man was created by God.
    We, too, shall be gifted with His seed to carry into our future generations, in His image.
    We, too, shall die setting man free.
    Let freedom ring! His truth marches on!

    Hey! Happy Fourth of July!

    Blessings.

  6. In my above comment, if you go to the link, you see the stunning connection of the map of the United States to the Tabernacle of Moses in the old testament and how America was drawn up in the mind of God to remind us that our destiny with Israel is eternally twined. Here are some more “coincidence” (ha ha) parallels of America with ancient Israel:

    “http://biblenews1.com/docs/native.htm”

  7. For those novice Christians who might be out there wondering what the Tabernacle of Moses was about and it’s purpose, here is a good starter to read and discover the great mysteries of God. The tabernacle was a powerful picture and foreshadow of the coming of Jesus in the future (among other powerfully mysterious things). The fact that this correlates with a map of the USA is quite telling of the history of our nation and it’s purpose in the mind of God… and indeed… a quick look at America’s history and continuing function of that history points very powerfully to the fact that America has indeed done what no nation since Israel has done, and all according to the plan of God.

    Here is a good overview of the Tabernacle:

    “http://www.bible-history.com/tabernacle/TAB4Overview.htm

  8. This one is an excellent one to look at as well. God has definitely raised up America to “tabernacle” himself in in order to proclaim the gospel to the entire world. Anyone who would think that America has not had a significant place in prophetic history is quite wrong. Here is the link for more insight of the tabernacle itself. You can click on each piece of furniture within the tabernacle of Moses on this particular site and get a good overview of each:

    “http://www.bibletruth.net/florlan/tabernacle/tabernac.htm”

  9. False flag in the making: drudge headline is Mexico has had nuclear material stolen. Didn’t Houston have a call for crisis actors over the holiday?

    • Indeed Mrs M, the call went out in a craigslist ad asking for “CRISIS ACTORS” JULY 4th Through July 6th
      I briefly considered it at one point as I have down some theater in the past, nothing big mind you, just local theater, Taming of the Shrew, in which I played Christopher Sly – the drunken tinker, to which the critics in the local paper wrote “rip off” of Joe Pesci’s role of Tommy DeVito in Goodfella’s” which devastated me but I quickly shrugged that off and rebounded in my next play South Pacific in which I played unlucky sailor #2

  10. The tabernacle was a place of fabulous wealth and beauty.

    The tabernacle was a very functional facility.

    The tabernacle solved the problem of a holy God dwelling in the midst of a sinful people (wow… this speaks volumes for God’s love toward humanity even in the midst of their sinfulness and rebellion against him). There is so much in this that you could fill up volumes of books.

    The building of the taberncle involved all the people.

    The tabernacle testified to the character of God.

    The tabernacle was composed of various elements, but the unity of all in design, function and purpose was emphasized. This is too good for me to pass up without commenting here: Note: “And he made “FIFTY” clasps of gold, and joined the curtains to one another with the clasps, so the tabernacle was a unit (Exodus 36:13). And he made “FIFTY” clasps of bronze to join the tent together that it might be one unit. Wow! Is anyone seeing the picture here? America has fifty states joined together to form one nation!

    The tabernacle was designed to be a permanent facility.

    The tabernacle was God’s idea, God’s initiative (wow!), and God’s design… (amazing).

    I think it is quite obvious by now that America was and is indeed a nation of special purpose unlike any other in history with the exception of Israel. But we did what Israel failed to do… believe on and proclaim the messiah to the world. Jesus was Israel’s stumbling block and after God destroyed it and dispersed the Jews, raised up another nation for the end time in order to proclaim the Messiah to the world.

    • Forgot to include the website. Here it is:

      THE TABERNACLE, THE DWELLING PLACE OF GOD (EXODUS 36:8-39:43)

      “http://bible.org/seriespage/tabernacle-dwelling-place-god-exodus-368-3943”

    • …and when the Israelites turned their backs on the Lord, they condemned themselves to enslavement. Certainly debt enslavement is coming to the US, maybe worse. Interesting link in comment #3.

    • Jesus teaches… (Mt. 5:33-37)

      You’ve heard the old sayings…

      “Don’t swear on your self
      – but make your oaths to the Lord”

      But I say to you — swear not at all…

      neither by heaven for it is God’s throne
      – nor by the earth for it is His footstool
      neither by Jerusalem, city of the great King
      neither swear by your head since
      – you can’t make one hair white nor black

      But state simply “yes yes” or “no no”
      – for whatever’s said more brings misery

    • Nome, is this one better? Just in an appreciative mood today. All our blessings come from the Lord.

    • Credit, where credit’s due, indeed John…
      – All good things come from God.

      worldly nations pass rapidly at best…
      “http://nomemoleste.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/adams_illustrated_panorama_of_history.jpg”

      Hebrews 12

      But now He has promised saying…
      – Yet once more I shake not the earth only but also heaven

      And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing
      – of those things that are shaken as of things that are made
      – that those things which cannot be shaken may remain

      Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved
      – let us have grace whereby we may serve God acceptably
      – with reverence and godly fear for our God is a consuming fire

    • Nome, good quotes. I have wondered aloud in this comment section about specific dates, but in the big picture, everything earthly is just a temporary reality. And as someone said, even the reign of the AC is just a shadow cast from the Glory of the coming of the Lord.

      So while I’m proud to be an American, this pride is actually humbling… If that makes any sense.

    • John T, good point, it is earthly and temporary, unfortunately during everyday life it can be difficult to see the big picture, we have to live, survive and thrive in this earthly realm for a short time, might as well make the best of it and live life to it’s fullest, never have any regrets if possible…laugh, live , love.

  11. “The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there anything whereof it may be said, “See, this is new? It has been already of old time, which was before us” (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10).

    In other words, God will cause history to repeat itself with the same patterns and characteristics. Should we be surprised that America has all the divine markings of God’s fingerprints on our nation?

    • John 4:20-24… (“The Woman at the Well”)

      Our [samaritan forefathers] worshipped in this mountain
      – and ye say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship

      Jesus saith unto her, Woman believe me the hour comes
      – when ye shall neither in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem worship the Father

      Ye worship ye know not what … we know what we worship for salvation is of the Jews
      – but the hour comes and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father
      – in spirit and in truth — for the Father seeks such to worship Him

      God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

      [“The Kingdom of Heaven is righteousness, peace, and joy — in the Holy Ghost”]

  12. The Tabernacle: A Prepared Place For A Prepared People (part 5) – Could not locate part 4 which is the “Altar of Incense”

  13. Pingback: L.A. Marzulli’s Blog – The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription | End of Days Prophesy

  14. “…to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.” WOW. “Our frontiers…?” “Merciless savages? This is how they describe the same people who created The Great Law of Peace of the Iroquois Nations, which served as the model for the Constitution of the United States? “Undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions?” There is no historical account of violence against an immigrant population upon first landing upon these shores. Instead, there are stories of how indigenous peoples showed generosity and took pity, showing these starving human beings how to survive and prosper on the land. Granted, as legislated practices such as paying settlers for bringing in “redskins” or “scalps” of any “savage” regardless of age or gender, the Natives in turn responded by protecting their families and homelands. All this to say on days like today, remember that our admonishment in the Word reminds us we are no longer defined by our nationalities or cultures, gender or class, but by our love for our Savior and Lord Jesus the Christ. We have been born again to a new and heavenly nation of which we are blessed citizens. I am grateful to live in this country, my family has served our country with distinction for generations, as so many other Native American men and women, but our country’s history is a bloody and complicated one. Let us consider this humbly as we also celebrate the extraordinary freedom we enjoy as Americans this 4th of July. With kind respect, your sister in Christ…

    • Michelle – I couldn’t agree with you more. What happened to Native Americans—and still is in my any places—is nothing short of genocide. It is a black mark on this country and still has not been dealt with. Blessings to you. L.A.

    Happening Now in Israel

    Reports

    July 4, 2014

    Happening Now in Israel

    Once again the war drums are beating louder here in Israel. Southern Israel is being bombarded with thirty to forty rockets out of Gaza daily, with tens of thousands of families with children running to bomb shelters several times every day. With homes being shelled and some landing directly in bedrooms in the middle of the night. We hear that the IAF (Israel Air Force) has bombed more empty buildings in Gaza. For some reason that doesn’t seen like enough for killing Jews.

    Our soldiers are grouping up on the Gaza border hoping that will frighten the Islamic murderers enough to stop bombing our civilians. Or that the UN and the rest of the world will notice that war crimes are taking place against Israel practically on an hourly basis.

    Hamas has threatened that if the IDF moves into Gaza that Israel will be very surprised as they can reach Israeli cities never before bombed from Gaza. In the meantime Jews in southern Israel are wondering what is wrong with Netanyahu and why he keeps threatening to do something while they are being bombed daily. What is he waiting for? Does a group of children have to be hit with a bomb before he takes action to stop them?

    Today I have to drive to Jerusalem and will pass several Arab villages where I have been shot at and stones thrown at us on the highway. Our news is telling us that fighting is breaking out in and around Jerusalem and there is a fear of another Intifada – this time even worse than the first two. One thing is certain. All this will improve and intensify our prayer life.

    On the way to Jerusalem we go through two permanent IDF checkpoints and sometimes with others set up along the way. What is usually a 45 minute drive can take hours.

    With the war in Syria now spreading far into Iraq and threatening to move into Jordan, this has Israel wondering what we should do- knowing that their final goal is to destroy Israel. We see Obama once again on the wrong side, supporting the “Rebels” who are now ISIS. These so-called rebels are very barbaric – beheading dozens, even hundreds daily as they move across the territory. Most of the ones they are murdering are other Muslims who don’t agree with the Islamic ideology. At present it is mostly the Sunnis killing Shiites and setting up Sharia Law as they go.

    It must sound like all of Israel is under attack – but that is not the case. If you were to go to Tel-Aviv today you would find the beaches full and life very normal. At present it is in the southern parts of Israel and in and around Jerusalem. There is also a lot of IDF build-up on our northern borders with Syria and Lebanon with an occasional rocket coming across the border into Israel. The IDF always responds with force but nothing seems to stop these Islamic devils. Even with the Gaza border build-up of IDF military Hamas knows that if Israel comes into Gaza many will die and there will be a terrible amount of destruction. They know they can’t win but as I have said so many times, they love death more than we love life.

    Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this ministry and your part in it.

    Shalom, Jerry Golden
