Neither Pat Robertson nor I have said that “G-d
has sent this disaster.” The Lord did not say any such thing to me but
rather that by the disaster we see the consequences of Haiti's ways which
have been serving the devil and his demons instead of G-d. But we also
see G-d's mercy, still in action in the midst of this judgment the island
nation has brought upon herself and NOT G-d nor "mother nature." The disaster
that had preceded this one had already been a very strong warning, but
it was as though both the world and the Church were deaf and blind, not
recognizing it for what it was.
Really, how many were those who realized and understood
that Katrina was a powerful judgment upon the American nation in proportion
to what she had forced upon Israel to be done to her people and land?35
Katrina followed on the heel of the utter destruction of Gush Kativ’s beautiful
communities, rendering ten thousand Jewish Israelis homeless, jobless,
moneyless, and traumatized. Many are still without a future or hope, although
they had been a blessing to the nation and as well as abroad. They were
people of faith who believed and obeyed G-d's promises, cultivating, planting
and building up that ‘shoulder of the Philistines’36
- the land G-d Himself had given Israel. Yet it was handed over to that
entity which keeps defying and challenging the Holy One of Israel, paying
Him back37 for having brought -
and continuing to bring - His people back to their own land from every
corner of the earth to which they had been driven for their wicked ways.
And Arik Sharon, that iron soldier, that man of steel, is since then in
a coma out of which he will probably not wake up again.
When I shared with my husband what the Lord had
said why this terrible disaster has struck Haiti, he said, "Interesting
that you should say this. Pat Robertson said the same thing." And he got
bashed for it, being a prominent, public figure, just as he got bashed
for what he said about what happened to Arik Sharon and why, although the
time for saying this may have been ill chosen. Perhaps he should have elaborated
more rather than making such a short statement that smacked of bigotry
and ignorance to secular folks and those not as deeply acquainted with
G-d’s ways as Pat. What is clear to him is not at all clear to everybody
I got bashed as well for speaking the truth about
Paul and Jan Crouch38, and as a
consequence lost most of my support, my mailing list shrinking immediately
to a mere few hundred, even though I had not made a deal with a son of
the devil nor compromised the Gospel and the Lord's Name.
Paul and Jan Crouch continue to enjoy the Christians'
favor, love and financial support, while I was judged and rejected by brethren
for a small failure, not even getting reprimanded first such as we are
enjoined upon by the Word of G-d that, when we fail in some way, we are
first to be corrected in private; then, if we do not mend our ways, to
be corrected in the presence of the elders, and then before the whole congregation;
and if we still insist in the same wrong doing, to be disciplined and shunned.
But I was rejected on the spot without a word of reprimand, counseling
and correction first.
My prayer is, that you will not reject this letter
and word from the Lord, that you will not bash me for daring to write and
tell you the truth, but that you will see with the eyes of the Lord Who
is not some sweet sugar daddy but a most awesome, holy and terrible G-d,
greatly to be feared; and the most loving, forgiving, kind, good, merciful
and compassionate Father anyone of us who loves Him could wish for, His
faithfulness and steadfast love for us and His people Israel enduring forever,
ever willing and ready to forgive a repentant one, even a great trespass
as we come to Him with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, for such He
will not reject but is near us.
For a truth, if He would forgive us and treat
us as we forgive and treat each other, what hope would any of us have?
Thanks be unto G-d that He is Who and What He is, and therefore help
and aid is coming to Haiti, G-d's outstretched hand to a people He
wishes to rescue and save from the power of the devil and his demons, from
the power of sin, corruption and death.
And G-d's hand can especially be seen by the presence
who have come with the most sophisticated medical
equipment 39 and experienced
professionals in the field of rescue,
. Being a very small people, about 5.7 or so million Jewish citizens, this
aid to the Haitian people will cost Israel a very great amount of money,
yet no one complains or says it should not be done; on the contrary, despite
our own difficult economic situation, Israel's Jewish citizens are behind
mission with all their heart. In Judaism the sanctity of life ranks
before personal considerations, and rendering the best
help possible40 to whomever
(including Palestinians) in times of need is a normal response for the
Jewish people and the nation of Israel41.
May you be blessed this day by the tender care,
love and mercies of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Yeshua HaMashiach,
and by the abiding Presence of His Holy Spirit.
Yours in Him,
