JPost: “This week Col. Yehuda HaCohen will be wrapping up his service as commander of the Sagi Brigade. HaCohen worked for the last two years to prepare the brigade for scenarios that the IDF had never even thought of before.

The Sagi Brigade sits on a 170 kilometer stretch watching over the Israeli-Sinai border. Under the Red Division, positioned in the Southern command, the brigade is responsible for watching over the western Negev. 

For the past two years the division has seen a new threat coming from the Sinai, the global terrorist organization Islamic State, which has turned the area into a complex security challenge.

naiaOpinion: The Amalekites were a people of the Negev and adjoining desert (Sinai) that were a hereditary enemy of Israel from wilderness times to the early monarchy. Amalek, a son of Esau’s son Eliphaz, was presumably the eponymous ancestor of the Amalekites. (Jewish Virtual Library).

Amalek was the first enemy the Israelites faced after they crossed the Red Sea. The people complained to Moses as the Egyptian army approached “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? Why did you make us leave?” (Exodus 14:11)

The people lost faith in the same God that saved their first-born in the tenth plague and freed them from 400 years of slavery.

So God brought an enemy to punish His chosen. A fierce and ruthless man who traveled over 900 miles to be the first to draw Israelite blood. The first terrorist.

That blood line that has its root in Esau, whom God called Edom, is the only one that God swore to have war with in every generation (Exodus 17:16).

Psalm 83:6-8 lists Amalek and Edom as members of an alliance to attack Israel in the last days.

Amalek today is the Sinai – Edom today is the West Bank.

Have you ever thought about the freedom we have because of our belief in our redemption by Jesus Christ?

  • we are a new creation – 2 Cor. 5:17; Ephesians 4:22-24
  • we are no longer under judgment – John 3:18; John 5:24
  • we are saved by grace through faith – Romans 11:6; Ephesians 2:8-9
  • we will not be subjected to God’s wrath – Romans 5:9; 1 Thess. 4:16-17
  • we cannot lose our salvation – Jude 1:24; Phil. 1:6
  • we are seen by God as perfected by Christ’s blood – Romans 8:1-11; Ephesians 1:13-14
  • we are children of God – John 1:12; 1 John 3:1
  • we have an intercessor in heaven – Romans 8:34; 1 Tim. 2:5
  • we are not slaves to sin – Romans 6:14-18; 1 Cor. 6:19-20
  • we will reign with Jesus, our King – 1 Peter 2:9; Rev. 5:9-10

We are free from the Law of Moses, we are free from condemnation, we have liberty as believers, but we are not free to break the law of love, Mark 12:30-31; Ephesians 5:1-2.

We are truly free only when we love and obey Jesus, John 14:21; 1 John 5:3-5.

Our salvation is secured by our faith; but our life on earth, in the flesh, will not be blessed if we are not following (obeying) what Jesus taught, 2 Timothy 2:21-26; Hebrews 12:5-8.

disect

The New American: “Our sensibilities are shocked when we hear of China killing people and selling their organs. Yet the same occurs in our nation, with the Planned Parenthood scandal being a prime example. And now a related case has come to the fore, with a New Mexico academic official admitting that high-school students were given babies’ brains to dissect at his institution.

Not only that, but this was done in violation of state law, according to LifeNews.com.

A new video interview has surfaced that confirms allegations made by the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives, that staff from the University of New Mexico used brains of aborted babies for dissection by high school students at a summer camp.”

Editor’s Opinion: Of the six things the LORD hates, one is “hands that shed innocent blood” Prov. 6:16-17.

Selling human fetal tissue is one of the functions of abortion clinics. Not calling it profit, but instead, reimbursement for costs of harvesting the tissue, is how clinics (I use the term loosely) get around the federal laws which make this illegal.

“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb” Psalm 139:13.

The one and only place where a baby is protected as it develops has become (legally) a chamber of horrors.

Sunday Post: GOD OF JACOB, GOD OF ISRAEL

“The God of Jacob is our refuge.” Psalm 46:7 The first time we see God entering Jacob’s life was that memorable night at Bethel. A fugitive from his father’s house, fleeing from his brother’s wrath, with probably no thought of God in his mind at all, “When he reached a certain place, he stopped for
