The significance of Israel under attack on Shemini Atzeret 2023 (Prophecy)
Make Comment
Minister Ty Alexander
Updated 10/12/2023

On Saturday morning, I was preparing and celebrating the last day of Sukkot/Tabernacles, its 8th Day, called Shemini Atzeret. In the sermon, I talked about it meaning renewal and hope in God’s promises. It was not until I sat down for the feast in the evening that I heard about Israel’s declaration of war on Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group based in Gaza which is in the southwestern border of Israel.

Hamas mounted a significant military attack through the air, sea, and barrier wall that killed hundreds of civilians so far and took at least another 100 as hostages that were brought back into Gaza. As all this unfolded over the weekend, I was certainly aware it happened on Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah, some important holidays for the Jews.

However, for the Shemini Atzeret service, I also talked about how Simchat Torah – the reciting of the Old Law of Moses – is not a holiday I recognize. Its importance is also extremely diminished when Yeshua Mashiach brought the New Covenant and new laws for all of us. Those laws supersede the Old Law, and it was only a couple days before Israel was attacked that I gave public word for stubborn and misguided loyalty to the Jewish law, both in the Torah and Tanach (Old Testament) and in their Halacha (other Jewish writings and teachings).

I copy the comment here, which was on The Times of Israel article, “We need more Azoulays” about emphasizing more righteous and wise application of Jewish law (https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/we-need-more-azoulays) [Note, as of 10/12/2023 The Times of Israel took down all public comments from their site, and as of 10/25/2023 they reinstated some public comments but continued to mask out or hide mine]:
Minister Ty Alexander: All this arguing over Halacha and Jewish law is pointless. God taught me through many years of trying to correct His people, exactly why arguing over spiritual teaching is useless. You only run yourselves in circles, convincing no one to change, and worse, the proud ones get into foolish arguments that show you as stubborn and ignorant, if not to those who really do not understand these things, but certainly to God and those who know better.

For you base your arguments on false beliefs, misconceptions, and false teachings, not true law or commands from God. But even if you were able to give good and true teaching from God, you would still not convince those loyal to false teachings, therefore, stop the arguing and find out what is false and superseded, and leave it.

The days we are in will see the end of all this falsehood in the peoples of God, but where you stand will be clearly shown as your institutions and authority fall. Only a fragment of the Old Law you seek to keep will survive into the next age and most of your Halacha will be thrown away, my people Israel. God will not keep what you have amended to the Torah and Tanach without rightful authority, for you disobeyed by adding to and changing His words as He commanded in the Torah, "You shall not add to nor take anything away from the words I command you, said Yahovah our God (Devarim/Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32).

It is time to put away your stubborn thinking in which you uphold your Jewish laws. They are not the key to prosperity, peace, or your longevity as a people [as some are saying here]. How can they be key when you yourselves cannot agree what is right among you?

It is Yahovah El Elyon, God Most High, who has kept you through the ages, oh Israel. His love for the righteous ones, His eternal promises to them, and His zeal to make His great name honored are what has kept you from certain destruction. What did God say when He said He would bring you back to the land of Israel? It was not for your sake, house of Israel, that you were gathered from the nations to return to your own land, but it was for My holy name that you profaned among the nations. It was not for your sake (Yechezkel/Ezekiel 36:22-32).

And then in the same breath, Yahovah Sabaoth [of hosts] said He would cleanse you and give you a new heart, one of flesh and not stone, and put His Spirit within His people (Yechezkel/Ezekiel 36:26-27). Yahovah our God kept His word. He did as He said long, long ago, my people Israel, but your hearts remain as stone, hard as diamond, for you refused to pay attention, and turned a stubborn shoulder, and plugged your ears from hearing (Zecharya /Zechariah 7:11-12).

None of you arguing over your Halacha has God’s Spirit and the heart of flesh promised by God, for you were not cleansed as He promised. That cleansing was done by haMashiach Yeshua on the cross, and God’s Spirit, the Messiah’s Spirit, was given to the church, as well as the heart of flesh. Heed my people, the New Covenant has superseded the Old Law long ago, so leave your stubborn ways and come to your God as He has been calling all the peoples of the earth for two millennia now.

Those who hear and no longer wish to harden their hearts toward Yahovah our God may learn more at the 3rdCompass site and see God's Offering to All in Judaism.
This comment parallels similar statements I gave to the church, some of which I have noted fulfilled prophecy (see Update - Fulfilment of Isaiah 28 for more). It links the corrupt church to the spiritual Ephraim, who is arrogant and loyal to false teachings and imposters, and turns away from our true God. But this spiritual Ephraim does not only include the church, for it also refers to all of God’s people who behave similarly with excess pride, unrepentance, and loyalty to false teachings. The update for God’s Alarm, God Testifies Against His People with Hosea, spoke even more of this Ephraim.

And so, the spiritual Ephraim includes Judaism and the modern day nation of Israel. The surprise attack on the morning of Shemini Atzeret shows where God’s help and renewal for Judaism and exalting the Old Law is when I spoke of the holiday as one for promise and renewal from God. It shows what it looks like to have God’s blessing and protection removed, and it gives a reminder of what will be happening to communities that remain loyal to what is false and to darkness and sin. Communities all over the world are already seeing this as they see violent crime and gun violence increase.

America saw it on 9/11, 2001 when terrorists killed thousands in New York and at the Pentagon, the military headquarters. Very few acknowledged that was God’s judgment on the nation, and so it is no coincidence that the attack on Israel on Shemini Atzeret was labeled as “Our 9/11” by some Israelis. A destroyed Israeli police station was prominent in the news of the attack and parallels the terrorist attack on the Pentagon.

The news is full of statements of failure to act or take seriously the building terrorist resources in recent years; full of missed clues and inaction. It was a complete surprise, which is exactly the same thing that happened to the United States on 9/11. This is what it looks like when God removes blessing and protection for His people. Don’t go on blaming the government or military. All the people are guilty.

This removal of blessing was recorded in the Bible, especially for the northern kingdom of Israel, which was noted by Jonathan Cahn in his book The Harbinger. Israel was attacked by Assyria over many years as warning signs, just as 9/11 and this recent attack on Israel are very serious warnings from God.

The biggest problem, though, is the people are acting in the same way today as ancient Israel did. They did not acknowledge that God was against them for their sins, despite the prophets saying so, and continued in their sins so that eventually God’s patience ran out and He brought complete judgment on them, for they, those of spiritual Ephraim, asserting in pride and arrogance of heart, say, “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with cut stone. The sycamores have been cut down, but we will replace them with cedars.” Therefore, Yahovah God raises superior adversaries against them and provoke their enemies (Isaiah 9:9-11/Yeshayahu 9:8-10) – the people were attacked and brought down, but instead of humbling themselves before God and seeking to make their ways right, they think, we do no wrong and simply rebuild stronger fortifications.

But this rebuilding and making stronger, the tact that most people and nations have used in our days when they were brought low by God, cannot bring the peace and prosperity they think it will. God’s hand is still lifted against them, because they continue in sin.

This quote of Isaiah 9, I had given to Israel during Sukkot last week and said they were God’s words just after verses that are part of the Song of the Messiah (Isaiah 9:2-7/Yeshayahu 9:1-6), which God had sung for worship on the first day of Sukkot. These verses speak of the Messiah, our Lord and Savior, Mashiach Yeshua coming as a Child, a Son, and being equal and the same as Yahovah El Elyon, God Most High.

Judaism and Israel was given earlier invitations to leave their old and corrupted ways to join the High Holidays with God and this ministry in what is right and true, but most paid no heed and turned away, missing all the further evidence I gave during the last High Holiday services of the truth in Christ, shown in real-world evidence and the scriptures.

My people Israel, kept her heart hard as stone, hard as diamond, and refused to pay attention, and turned a stubborn shoulder, and plugged her ears from hearing (Zecharya /Zechariah 7:11-12). Should I be surprised? For that is how most of the church has treated God’s guidance from this ministry, as well, and so God has been angry. Then He showed it further with the attack on Israel on Shemini Atzeret.

Ephraim is mixed with the nations. Ephraim has become a cake not turned over… Ephraim has become like a deceived dove, without understanding (Hosea 7:8-11).

Yahovah God said, I will be like a lion to Ephraim and like a young lion to the house of Judah. [That is, all My people.] I, yes I, will tear to pieces and go away, I will carry away, and there will be no one to rescue. I will go away and return to My place until they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face (Hosea/Hoshea 5:14-15).

For the enclosed city is alone; the fortified city is alone; homesteads, settlements on the plains, forlorn and forsaken like the desert. This is how Jacob’s wrongdoing will be forgiven (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:9-10).

I paraphrase Isaiah 27 because God has shown me that chapter’s prophecies are coming true in our days. God has shown much Biblical prophecy coming true in recent years through this ministry’s work. Yet most stand far off and plug their ears.

Then I said, “I have labored in vain, I spent my strength for nothing and futility, Yet, surely, my justice is with Yahovah and my reward is with my God” (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 49:4).

Update - Prophecies of Isaiah 27 explained 10/10/2023
Updated 10/13/2023

I paraphrased Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27 before, but did not explain my paraphrasing, thinking most people would understand how it relates to the Hamas attack on Israel. This morning, though, I saw a headline that made the point clearly, which I gave more subtly: "‘No one to talk to’: Israelis feel abandoned by trusted army after terror assault"[1.1]. A later article quotes a survivor saying, "There was no air force, no soldiers, we were alone"[1.2].

I feel the Lord wants me to be explicit now and explain that chapter more fully. My paraphrase was, For the enclosed city is alone; the fortified city is alone; homesteads, settlements on the plains, forlorn and forsaken like the desert. This is how Jacob’s wrongdoing will be forgiven (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:9-10).

The Times of Israel headline read, "'No one to talk to': Israelis feel abandoned..." which goes with the enclosed city is alone; the fortified city is alone. This refers to Israel, and especially their massive security wall closing off Gaza where most of the Palestinians live. The wall was breached at many points in the Hamas attack.

The next part of my paraphrase, homesteads, settlements on the plains, forlorn and forsaken like the desert, refer to the areas where Israel was attacked, on the outskirts and border towns close to the border with Gaza.

And then This is how Jacob’s wrongdoing will be forgiven, refers to this attack on Israel being God's judgment for their sins; in rejecting God and the truth, in keeping stubborn loyalty to their corrupted teachings, in failing to fulfill the Old Law as it needs to be fulfilled, in rejecting God's appeals to them with the truth, with much evidence, and with His word to accept haMashiach, the Messiah, in Christ.

The beginning of Isaiah 27 speaks of God punishing and killing Leviathan/Livyatan, the twisted serpent. In years past, I noted how this scripture is coming to pass with the works of this ministry in revealing how the devil works in the church and other believing sects. I gave a link in the original post here to an explanation of that: Update - Fulfilment of Isaiah 28. It basically says for Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:1, On that day (our days now), God has used this ministry to punish Leviathan (Satan) by revealing its corruptions in God's people, as well as by giving direct rebuke to false teachers and false prophets.

Then Isaiah 27 continues with God saying, On that day... I will tend and keep My vineyard safe. I will have no wrath. If someone gives me briars and thorns as in the day of battle, I would step on them. I would burn them completely, unless they rely on My protection. Let them make peace with me. Let them make peace with Me. The time comes when Jacob/Yaakov will take root. Israel will blossom and sprout, and they will fill the whole world with fruit. (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:2-6).

This refers to God withholding serious judgment on His people, the vineyard, the church especially, because of the symbolism God uses for Mashiach Yeshua as the True Vine in whom we are adorned and nurtured.

And so God has kept His people relatively safe, at least for a time, even when they produce briars and thorns (hostile false teachers and their institutions), because God is slow to anger (Exodus/Shemot 34:6; Numbers/Bamidbar 14:18; Nehemiah/Nechemya 9:17; Psalm/Tehillim 86:15, 103:8, 145:8; Joel/Yoel 2:13; Jonah/Yonah 4:2; Nahum/Nachum 1:3). His judgment also relents when people repent and profess reliance on Him (Unless they rely on My protection. Let them make peace with me).

Still, God will bring them judgment eventually (I would step on them), because most do not repent or change to remove sin from them or their institutions. However, God has not brought His corrupted people complete judgment (I would burn them completely), because it is being withheld. That is, until more recent years, which I have been talking much of (see God's Alarm for more). And now, with the attack on Israel, you can see God's patience to hold back judgment is running out.

God has made Jacob and Israel blossom and sprout throughout the world by the fruits of Mashiach Yeshua and the church, who extend from Israel and Judah, a son of Jacob and the tribe of the Messiah.

Isaiah 27 continues by noting how God has withheld judgment on His people, Like the striking of them who has struck Him, has He struck them? Or like the slaughter of His slain, have they been slain? God contended with them by banishing them, by driving them away. With His fierce wind He expelled them on the day of the east wind (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:7-8). Except God now notes how His people, the ancient Jews struck Him by killing Yeshua Mashiach, the Messiah. Yet He did not completely destroy them. Still, judgment is withholding, as God notes how He brought judgment through Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon in times before (His fierce wind; the east wind).

But recall that this chapter prophecies of our times today, not the time of the fall to ancient Babylon, so keep that in mind as we continue with what God says.

Therefore, through judgment Jacob’s (Israel's) wrongdoing will be forgiven. And this will be the full price of the pardoning of his sin: When he makes all the altar stones like pulverized chalk stones; When Asherim and incense altars will not stand. For the fortified city is alone, a homestead deserted and abandoned like the desert;
There the calf will graze, and there it will lie down and feed on its branches. When its limbs are dry, they are broken off. Women come and make a fire with them,
for they are not a people of discernment, therefore their Maker will not have compassion on them, and their Creator will not be gracious to them
(Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:9-11).

These verses contain what I paraphrased for the Hamas attack on Israel, and obviously refer to God's judgment. God says His people are not a people of discernment - they do not correctly know or accept what is right and true, nor what is right and true from God. Do not let the symbolism of altar stones, Asherim, and incense altars confuse you. God is not talking about ancient Israel in the idolatry of that day, but of His people today.

I said in the original post how the church and Judaism are in the spiritual Ephraim, corrupted and loyal to what is false. That is what the altar stones, Asherim, and incense altars symbolize here - the institutions, altars, and monuments (altar stones and incense altars) honoring false teachings and the Baals of this age, imposters of God and the saints and angels (Asherim). I have spoken much of this reality in the church, but do not forget that all believing sects are included, such as Judaism and Islam.

The last verses of Isaiah 27 continue to speak of today, On that day, Yahovah will thresh from the Euphrates to Egypt. And gather His people, one by one. And on that day a great trumpet, ram's horn shofar, will be blown and the perishing in Assyria and scattered in Egypt will come and worship Yahovah God on the holy mountain in Jerusalem (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:12-13).

The end of Isaiah 27 talks about God threshing, testing and trying His people and mankind, not only throughout the Middle East (Euphrates to Egypt), but the whole world and all of mankind, because the Euphrates symbolizes the beginning of mankind and his first sins in Eden, and Egypt symbolizes the slavery to sin and the spiritual Mystery Harlot Babylon that God's people have been in through the ages, enslaved to darkness and what is false.

The last great trumpet will sound and God's people saved in Mashiach Yeshua through the New Covenant will be gathered up in the clouds and meet Him at the end of this age, that day, when Christ returns to defeat the powers of darkness that will subdue Jerusalem (Zechariah/Zecharya 14:1-5). And then, those who were left but not resurrected at the Lord's return will come to worship Yavovah El Elyon, God Most High, through His embodiment in Mashiach Yeshua at Jerusalem (Zechariah/Zecharya 14:16).

I hope this makes it clear that the prophecies of the Old Testament that I have been saying refer to and are fulfilling for our days now are truly as I say it is.

Update - Be not of hard heart 10/11/2023
After I posted the last update, I felt the ravings of rabbis and others, thinking that my translations and interpretation of God’s words in the Tanach (the Hebrew Bible, which is the Old Testament), are incorrect and misconstrued to align with my own thinking. I did not want to talk about this since I have spoken on the subject much before, but God moved me to speak for this occasion.

Those who doubt my teachings, translations, or interpretations often do not understand the holy scriptures correctly or what they have wrong. Nor do they acknowledge that Yahovah El Elyon, God Most High, has commended me as His approved shepherd (see Further affirmation of God’s Alarm). After all, why should anyone listen to one who approves himself?

The shepherds who are against what I say, including the rabbinate, often do not understand their own corruptions in understanding God’s words, in its translation, and in interpretation. They think they and their institutions’ teachers and historical texts are right and true, and that by simply reading one can understand without error, but God through His instruction to me by God’s Spirit - the Messiah’s, Mashiach Yeshua’s (Christ Jesus) Spirit - and by many tests and trials, has shown me where darkness and corruption lay within His people.

So if you doubt my translations and interpretation of God’s words, especially because your Bibles state differently, then realize that God has shown through my translations what is right and true. Go through this site to see if that is not so. I give clear explanations. And realize that your Bibles are translations and interpretations by your teachers and the church, who I must point out were and are corrupted by false beliefs and false teachings so that they cannot interpret or translate without error. This is why I say there are no perfect Bibles and we must study from multiple good translations, as well as go back to the original language manuscripts (see Choosing a Bible for more).

I also must say, especially to Judaism, that modern Hebrew is not the same as Ancient Hebrew which God spoke in the Tanach or Hebrew Old Testament. Much knowledge of Ancient Hebrew was lost through the millennia, especially after the Hellenization of the Jews after they were conquered by the Greeks many centuries before Christ (read The Actual Names of God and Christ to learn more).

Modern Hebrew was reconstructed and revived in modern times. So let there be no doubt, if any modern Jew could go back to ancient Jerusalem, they would be quickly found out as a foreigner who did not come from their land because of their modern dialect, so do not be arrogant in your knowledge and use of Hebrew as I have seen some rabbis and the Israeli rabbinate do.
A note on Samaritan and Sephardic Hebrew: Some people think that there are sub-sects of Judaism that maintained and still speak the Ancient Hebrew of the original scriptures, like Sephardic and Samaritan Judaism. Some in those Jewish communities even claim that they speak the original Hebrew from the times of the first temple in Jerusalem. These claims are based on those communities' more xenophobic, isolationist ways of life, but after examination of these claims, I judge them to be the same as the claims of the Orthodox Church saying they teach the original doctrines of the first apostles - They are false claims perpetuated by false teachings and excess pride that rejects all the facts.

There is no evidence that Sephardic Jewish communities successfully kept Ancient Hebrew unchanged through two and a half millennia of mixing with all the cultures that took over their communities after the Babylonian exile. The dialect that Sephardic Jews speak may be closer to what Ancient Hebrew was than other modern dialects, but all modern dialects were influenced by all the cultures and languages the Jews lived under through the millennia and in modern times.

As for Samaritan Jews, the fact is, their communities came from the Assyrian takeover of the northern kingdom of Israel before the fall about 100 years later of the southern kingdom, Judah, based in Jerusalem. Jews of their time did NOT consider Samaritan Jews to be truly Jewish or of the people of God because of their mixed heritage with the peoples of Assyria. Furthermore, their Hebrew scriptures have false teachings that contradict the Hebrew scriptures that are considered authentic by the church and Judaism.

The outcast nature of Samaritan Jews is even shown in the time of Christ when the Lord Himself does not consider them part of Judaism, His people whom He was sent to save as the Messiah. Christ lumped the Samaritans with the Gentiles (non-Jews), because He told His 12 disciples to avoid preaching to both groups, explicitly, in Matthew 10:5-6. The separation of Samaritan Jews and the rest of Judaism is also shown in John 4 where Yeshua speaks with a Samaritan woman who is also a Samaritan Jew because she attests kinship in the Hebrew forefathers, saying to Christ, "You are not greater than our father Jacob/Yaakov, are You?" (John 4:12).

John 4:9 also explicitly states that Jews do not associate with Samaritans (John 4:8), which includes the Samaritan Jews because of the woman Yeshua was speaking to there. The Samaritan Jews' false teachings are also shown in John 4 when the woman says her people worship on a mountain in Samaria instead of at the temple in Jerusalem (John 4:20).

The bottom line is, the Samaritan Jews were mixed with Assyrian peoples, and later, like the rest of Judaism, including the lines from where Sephardic Jews came from, became mixed with Babylonian, Persian, Greek, and Roman peoples centuries after the northern kingdom of Israel fell. This mixing involved culture and language, so trying to claim that Samaritan Jews or any other sect of Judaism retained the pure, unchanged Ancient Hebrew language and teachings from the time of the first temple is naive, at best, and simply a plain lie when all the facts are considered.
And furthermore, because most in Judaism have not accepted Mashiach Yeshua, they do not have God’s Spirit within, as God promised with the New Covenant through Ezekiel/Yechezkel (Ezekiel/ Yechezkel 36:26-27). This is very much required to correctly interpret the scriptures, for how can one truly know the thoughts of a person if you are not one with their mind?

For to us, [the original apostles of Mashiach Yeshua], God revealed [His wisdom and mysteries] through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. For who among people knows the thoughts of a person except the spirit of the person that is in him? So also the thoughts of God no one knows, except the Spirit of God. Now, we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God (1 Corinthians 2:10-12).

And so, through much guidance from God, the Lord has taught me His wisdom and mysteries as He did His apostles of old. But the church will often use the verses from 1 Corinthians 2 above to back up their own incorrect and corrupt teachings, for they too, should have God’s Spirit by the New Covenant.

Yes, most do, because of the great work and sure promises of Yahovah El Shaddai, God Almighty, for the New Covenant and God do not discriminate, but they ensure the promise of God’s Spirit, that new heart given with the New Covenant to all who believe in and saved by haMashiach, the Messiah. But that promise does not guarantee complete inerrancy with God’s Mind as many believers think and teach, for the influence of darkness upon God’s people often has more power over them and their minds than what is from God.

This is something an approved shepherd of the Lord must understand and combat, but most who oppose what I say and teach are not approved; arrogant, unwilling to take correction, criticizing the specks in others’ eyes when they have logs in their own (Matthew 7:3-5; Luke 6:41-42). What sort of teacher are you if you cannot accept correction?

The eye is the lamp of the body; so then, if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. So if the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! (Matthew 6:22; Luke 11:34-36)

My people and brethren, understand what I say and do not continue in hardness of heart and unwillingness to see the darkness in yourselves and your teachers and institutions. These are days when the Lord’s patience is coming to end, and truly, He holds His people, especially those who claim authority and leadership in Him, more accountable, so remain humble and accept correction, for God examines all and will chastise those He considers His own, so that the work of maturity and righteousness may build in you (Hebrews 12:5-13).

May that work of Mashiach Yeshua be made complete in you all through the name of Yahovah El Elyon and Mashiach Yeshua with the help of the Ruach Chodesh, the Holy Spirit. Amen and amen.



What has better effect? Accepting causes for atrocity or Keeping them hidden? 11/17/2023
The last updates posted in the God's Alarm thread gave plain and clear evidence that the Hamas attack was judgment from God. They also talked about why it is bad to simply cover up or hide bad events from public view. Here, I will copy comments from another Times of Israel article that wanted to keep from public view a video made by the Israeli government of Hamas atrocities during October 7th.

Comments in article "The IDF atrocity video is a threat to Israeli souls." The article argued to keep the video from the public because it would re-traumatize people and was not worth the "psychic damage." They also talked about it damaging "resilience across the board" and that keeping it from people would give victory for "our souls and the souls of our children." Unfortunately, the author and most commenters do not understand how much worse the soul and "psychic damage" is when the whole truth is denied and the world is only viewed through rosy glasses. That removes repentance and accountability from the people, which will keep them in the state that brought God's judgment. Is resilience in darkness better than the renewal and healing that comes from acknowledging wrongs and coming out of darkness?
Minister Ty Alexander: Isn’t it the duty for a people of God to accept and understand why atrocity happened to them? A blessed people of God is protected unless they’ve done something against God. But yes, children and sensitive people should not watch such violence, but your media is already saturated with gory violence and smut that contribute daily to the national “tumah” (impurity). I hate to say it, but Israel is like the rest of the nations and does not understand where her God is or what He does. If the bloody details of the slaughter of children in mass shootings, like at Uvalde, did not air to the public, the great outcry against poor firearms legislation would not have happened and people would not seek change. But I am also disheartened to say that most people have no idea what truly needs to be changed, that is, themselves and their communities for violating what God says is right. Doesn’t God bring great calamity when His patience has run out and He wants His people to see it? Oh Israel, seek not your rabbinate or leaders for the truth, as they have contributed greatly to the national tumah. Look further, Israel.

alanasan65: No loving God would visit this upon that loving god's creation.  The Nazi's blamed the Jews, too. They were wrong as, with greatest respect,  you are. Hamas, not God, come this.

lfrajberg: Exactly,the same argument could be made about the holocaust. Personally,I prefer to blame the Nazis and Hamas-not God or the Jews themselves-for the atrocities they commited. Evil people do evil things-simple as that.

Minister Ty Alexander: I'm sorry, but you have no idea what is happening and do not truly know God Almighty if you don't understand what I am talking about. It is Yahovah El Elyon, God Most High, that said, "I am Yahovah [Adonai], the One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating disaster. I am Yahovah who does all these things (Yeshayahu/Isaiah 45:6-7). I have spoken on this site before about these things and given proof that God used Hamas for judgment upon the Jews, as He did with the Nazis. Those who wish to understand why, please go to the 3rdCompass site and see God's Offering To All In Judaism and read The significance of Israel under attack on Shemini Atzeret 2023 (Oct.7).

lfrajberg: You are correct. I am not privy to how Hashem works. And neither are you-or any other mortal.

Here's what I know. Claiming that we Jews, ourselves, did something terrible to anger Hashem and thus he used the Nazis, and now Hamas, to punish us comes close to exculpating our murderers. After all, if all they were/are just a divine instrument to punish us for our alleged misdeeds did they really do anything wrong?

Maybe,we should just leave God out of the discussion.

Minister Ty Alexander: Trying to remove God from this amounts to denying He is, the Ehyeh (I AM/I WILL), and has control of the affairs of mankind. Surely, no man knows all of God’s works or thoughts, and I do not claim that. But His faithful anointed do know Him and His ways with greater clarity than others. That is where I speak from as an elder priest and teacher for El Elyon. So whether or not I am privy to how El Elyon, God Most High, works is for those who will search me out to see. Go to the site I asked people to go to and see whether or not El Elyon is with me or not. Read what I asked and see if all I say is not true.

Like most people, you are oversimplifying things. God has used both foreign and internal dark forces through the ages to bring judgment on all peoples, not just the Jews, but it does not mean those forces are “exculpated.” God will judge their sins as well, so after God’s will in judgment is finished, they too will fall for their wrongs. One must recognize what is what, what is God’s will and what is not, for not everything that darkness does is His will, but is allowed to happen according to God’s decree for freewill. God will judge all, for He is HaShaphat, The Judge, but He will judge His people most of all. So go where I asked the people to go and grow to understand God and the world as they truly are, so you may learn why these things happen and how to keep from doing wrong against God.

There will be no peace 2/2/2024
Updated 2/20/2024

Four months after the war with Hamas began, Israel has attacked most of the Gaza Strip. A recent Times of Israel article shared Associated Press satellite photos and analysis showing that Israel destroyed half the buildings in Gaza (a point I had noted early in the war, as well, when they began in the north of Gaza), and it appears Israel is now creating a buffer zone in addition to their existing border wall.

Many commenters noted this was a good thing and applauded the direction Israel was going. However, the Lord says otherwise, so I needed to make comment, which I copy here:
In response to "Satellite photos show new demolition within Israeli buffer zone in Gaza"
Minister Ty Alexander: There will be no peace even if Israel manages to totally wipe out Hamas. Palestinians and the world sees Israel has destroyed half the structures in Gaza, necessary utilities, and killed tens of thousands of civilians. In an area that housed 2 million people with an estimated 40k Hamas terrorists (2% of the population)[2.3, 2.4], how many innocents who care nothing for terrorist activity have been killed? Are you painting all your neighbors as they do you, Israel?

This new buffer zone is a waste of effort. If the U.S. military destroyed half the city of Chicago and killed tens of thousands to get to a handful of gangsters, and then tried to make a buffer zone, it would only create a festering sore that nurtures hate and later strikes out at those who made half the population homeless and destitute. The IDF should have been much more precise in military engagement, but now, the world sees Israel do the same as Russia to Ukraine, flattening cities and killing everyone as they press forward.
Then on February 20th, I noted another article, "IDF says 12,000 Hamas fighters killed in Gaza war, double the terror group’s claim." Because I saw a different article that tried to drastically downplay civilian casualties in Gaza[2.5], I needed to make comment.
Minister Ty Alexander: It seems that everyone cheats on their numbers. Hamas might minimize their casualty count, but I see Israel doing the same with numbers to improve their image, minimizing civilian casualties when there is no verification. Still, the IDF claim of a 2:1 civilian to combatant casualty rate is not something to be proud of if you claim to be the most ethical military in the world, as I have seen Israel say. Hamas does not have public numbers for their forces or organization, but an average of estimates from Wikipedia sources is about 40,000 operatives, maybe a third or more of which are armed soldiers. If Israel wants to destroy Hamas, they have a long way to go. And it also appears, the IDF is not as effective as it should be when 31,000 airstrikes plus an untold number of ground assaults have only killed an estimated 12,000 Hamas. If every airstrike alone killed just one Hamas operative, Hamas would be nearly incapacitated in numbers. But what 31,000 airstrikes did do is decimate the cities of Gaza where now half the population of over 2 million is homeless and desperate. What will this bring, Israel?

What was God's will was done, and what is God's will is now being done, but in the end all parties to unrighteousness will fall. So is the will of Yahovah El Elyon, HaShaphat - God Most High, The Judge.
The reality of what Israel has done in Gaza does not make sense in a war with 40,000 terrorists in a very small area. From seeing the viewpoints of many Israelis about the Hamas War, though, a lot of people also view all Palestinians as supporting Hamas and other militant terrorist organizations in their area. Polls of Palestinians have a majority of them in support of Hamas and retaliation (57% in Gaza and 82% in the West Bank as of December 2023)[2.1], so many Israelis view all Palestinians as part of Hamas. Is that a good way to judge people?

We should consider that polls are not always an accurate estimate of the actual picture, but even if this poll reflects the views of the majority of Palestinians, we need to ask, Why do so many Palestinians feel this way?

Hamas Attack DID Fulfill Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27 2/8/2024
In the October 10th update here, I gave more details about how the Hamas attacked fulfilled Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27. I showed how many details in the prophecy and attack lined up, but some skeptics may have noticed other details in the prophecy that did not seem to be fulfilled, such as, "There [in the attacked and abandoned homestead/kibbutz] the calf will graze, and there it will lie down and feed on its branches. When its limbs are dry, they are broken off. Women come and make a fire with them, for they are not a people of discernment" (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:10-11).

And so they scoff at what I say about prophecy fulfilling and reject that the Hamas attack truly was God's judgment on Israel and Judaism. God DID give further reinforcements for the truth as I posted in this thread and other updates, like in God's Alarm where God directly linked the Hamas attack to prophecy in Hosea that states God, yes, God Himself, was the one who tore apart His people, Israel. Despite many affirmations that I speak the truth, most of the people continue in their disbelief, and think, No, Never, Our loving God would never do this to us.

How I've lamented the stubbornness of the people. To give you more proof, the Lord now has me explain the scripture I just quoted, which does not seem to be fulfilled, but actually was fulfilled after the Hamas attack. How did the calf graze and the women come and make a fire with the dried branches of their attacked kibbutzim? The full revelation only just came to me now. Praise the Lord for it, because it is long overdue the people stop their scoffing and disdain for the truth.

It was only about a week after I posted the October 10th update, I learned about how the farms were abandoned for many days after the attack and because the Israeli military cut off the areas so no one could go in[3.1, 3.2, 3.3]. I knew the farm animals being abandoned fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah 27:10 that says the calf will graze and feed on the branches of trees and bushes because the people were gone.

However, because I could not find any specific news about domestic animals feeding on local foliage after the farms were abandoned, I chose not to bring up this part of the prophecy. People often scoff more when things do not exactly line up and reject everything else. But because I have no proof that abandoned farm animals grazed on foliage to survive does not mean it didn't happen. Many farms were abandoned for long periods of time, so it is not hard to imagine that God's prophecy was fulfilled.

And as for the prophecy of women coming to make fire with dry and broken branches, this too was also fulfilled, not so much literally, because many people returning to their kibbutz communities still had homes and utilities so they would not need to survive with wood fires, but the prophecy was fulfilled by what women did related to rape and sexual abuse committed by Hamas - after some weeks following the attack (When its limbs are dry), women began an outcry to the Israeli government and international community to highlight the horrible sex crimes committed by Hamas (they [the dry branches because of the attack] are broken off. Women come and make a fire with them).

Why does this outcry by women fulfill the prophecy? It's because the Hebrew word that is translated as "make a fire" is a verb that means "to be or become light, to shine." It is not a word that is often used for making a fire.

And what were women doing when they were protesting about sexual violence? They were being lights and shining their plight about sexual abuse because they felt the community was not acknowledging it happened and that it was not an important subject. So God's prophecy WAS fully fulfilled - After the attack, women used what happened (broke off the dry branches) to shine a light on atrocities (make a fire/shine with them).

But what does God continue to say in the prophecy? They made a fire or shined without having discernment (for they are not a people of discernment). Most of Israel and Judaism, and not just women, protested the atrocities of the Hamas attack without understanding why judgment came to them and Who actually brought it. They continue to do it to this day.

I've often seen articles and posts from Israelis, Jews, and their supporters lamenting what happened and blaming it all on demonic terrorists. God's people deny all accountability and deny their ways and traditions have them living in many serious sins, which is why God brought and continues to bring judgment on them - they are not a people of discernment. But furthermore, I lament this state of the people in all believers, especially the church, because they, too, go about constantly denying they, too, live in many of the same sins that God is now bringing judgment for, first with Ukraine and now on Israel; two nations that are majority believers of God (Christian and Jewish).

People of God who claim holiness and assured blessing and protection from our El Elyon, God Most High, are fallen in the same state no matter what sect they are in. Blindly and stubbornly going forward after atrocity like the Hamas War and Ukraine Russian War, thinking, it is all the enemy to blame and we the people of God have done nothing wrong and will be vindicated. If only the people knew the state they are in and where their peace would be. But God says, they are not a people of discernment.

This again was made apparent today when I responded to a Times of Israel article (https://www.timesofisrael.com/displaced-women-children-endure-sexual-violence-inside-evacuee-hotels) about rape and sex abuse happening to Israelis displaced in the Hamas attacks. These predatory attacks were perpetrated by their own, other displaced Israelis. And commenters stated how this would never have happened if Hamas didn't attack and tried to blame it on war and Hamas. This was a disturbing attitude that again negates the accountability of the people.

My response to the article and comments were (added notes in red):
Shameful predator behavior for a nation that considers herself more Godly than others, but this is fully expected considering the national tumah [impurity] festered long before Hamas attacked and that the nation has not conducted herself any better than anyone else. A couple years ago, there was a Times of Israel article where a Ukrainian war refugee was also sexually attacked when she came to Israel for asylum. Those who blame this behavior on extreme circumstances or Hamas greatly exaggerate the sound state of the people. These predators would do the very same things in their own neighborhoods if they have to opportunity. Will you also brush aside the gang rapes done by school youths in recent years? (also in other Times of Israel articles)

Do not blame Hamas or war. Israel, it is your tumah; the same as all the other peoples of the world - immoral and corrupt popular values have fallen the people. Denying the national tumah is why God brings judgment on His people. Denial only hurts the people.

Thorns will be in their tents. The days of judgment have come. The days of retribution have come. Israel will know it. (Hosea 9:6-7)

What sort of shelter do refugees often come to after fleeing their homes? It is tents, but today, for Israel their tents are hotels.
I quoted Hosea 9 stating, Thorns will be in their tents, because I saw this happen to Ukrainian refugees who fled to tent cities for asylum in other countries. As I said in my public comment, it even happened to a refugee who took asylum in Israel. The Ukraine Russian War showed me what God meant in Hosea 9 about thorns in the people's tents when judgment comes to God's people - they will still have further judgment (thorns) come to them after they flee their homes and take refuge in temporary tent camps (Thorns will be in their tents).

Now the thorns have reached Israel when she tries to take refuge among her own.

... This point shows that Israel and Judaism partake in the same sins as the rest of the world and is suffering in the same judgments from God. She is no different and there are no other innocent communities either, whether they are believers or not, similar judgments are coming to all the world. When will you learn discernment, my people?
