Links: AP | AP |August 6 (Day 218, Pillar): Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, stood up for the truth about Israel and the Palestinians, unlike the other members of the Bush Administration. Rumsfeld actually called the Palestinian Authority terrorists, something no one else in the Bush Administration, including the President, has had the guts to do. Furthermore, Rumsfeld even revealed that he is not anti-Semitic. He referred to the West Bank as the "so-called occupied territory." And he said he doubted Israel could turn over land to the Palestinians.
This will surely upset Powell, Rice, and the pro-Arab state department. And it is an answer to prayer (reference July 29, 2002). Rumsfeld, who is a Christian and a straight shooter, unlike most of the other politicians in Washington, staked out the truth for the arrival of the Palestinian peace negotiators in two days. No sooner had Bush left Washington for his Texas vacation than the truth came out. Rumsfeld had the backbone to go against the lies, half-truths, and innuendoes of the Bush staff and stand for the truth. It is refreshing to know that everyone in Washington isn't corrupted by the devil's world.

Before leaving Washington, DC, the President signed the Trade Promotion Bill that will give him authority to negotiate free-trade pacts, which Congress can only accept or reject, but not amend.

Tropical Storm Christobal was off the east coast of Florida. And their was a weather elephant over the northeastern USA. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.

Donald Rumsfeld spoke the truth like a man today on August 6th, for a man. Rumsfeld called the Palestinians terrorists, and he did not agree that the Palestinians have any right to the land. He stood alone in the Bush Administration like a pillar on Day 218, for a pillar, the sign of maximum historical impact. Although this may be a brief glimpse of the truth inside the Bush Administration, it was an answer to prayer both here and from Berachah. And it is refreshing to know that everyone in the administration is not full of political duplicity. Of course, Rumsfeld admitted little progress in some areas, such as the Intelligence Community. Progress will only come when Christians execute the Christian life. The lies in government are from the devil, and progress is from the blessing of God. Activists don't make a difference. Doctrinal disciples make the difference.
Tropical Storm Christobal was off the east coast of Florida today as Israel battled the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Florida has been associated with the Palestinians at Gaza. Palestinian peace negotiators are preparing to fly to Washington for talks with the US State Department. This will only bring more suffering upon the USA.
The President signed the Trade Promotion Bill before going on vacation to Crawford, Texas. There was a weather elephant over the northeastern USA, the region of Issachar, the donkey and symbol of trade. The Trade Promotion Bill was greeted by an elephant, the sign of Baal. Trading with Baal will not solve the nation's economic problems, which are due to divine punishment.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rebounded up 230.46 to close at 8,274.09. This is a Spiritual uptrend (23), an historical breakpoint, and Spiritual Freedom (74) in the face of the plagues of Egypt (9). The blessing or cursing associated with the impact of Christian doctrine is directly reflected daily in the Stock Market.
Christians who obey the truth, i.e. Bible Doctrine, on the Stage of Life will be promoted. Those who deny the Lord before men will be punished. Christian promotion from the grace of God is not popular with the world. Those who will not hold to their beliefs before their peers are not ambassadors for Christ. What will happen to Rumsfeld now that he has dared to speak the truth? He will probably be persecuted by the others in the Bush Administration. He was an answer to prayer, and now he needs more prayer support. It will be interesting to see if a kernel of truth can sprout and grow in the anti-Semitic political climate of Washington.
Jesus Christ spoke the simple truth on earth. Those who believed in Him were saved. They were delivered from their life of Spiritual death into the kingdom of Eternal Life. Everyone born into this life is born with the sin of Adam. That sin is passed down through the male sperm. A person is born physically alive but spiritually dead. He is cut off from God in darkness. He cannot understand spiritual things without a spirit. Spiritual regeneration is necessary to know God. Anyone can know God who is willing to follow God's procedure for Salvation, which is:
"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31). "Everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have Eternal Life" (John 3:16b).
Belief in Jesus Christ can be expressed in the privacy of the soul to God the Father: "Father, I believe in Jesus Christ." God will honor any request for Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
