Zechariah 12:1-3

The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.  Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.  And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.


Our first article this week comes to us from One News Now.  It concerns how the youth of America are becoming increasingly prejudiced against Israel.  You can learn more about this ministry at 




The leader of a Messianic Jewish ministry says it's not surprising that a self-described Democratic socialist, and now a darling of the Democrats, is a vocal critic of Israel.


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became an overnight star after her stunning primary victory over 10-term Democrat incumbent Joe Crowley in New York's 14th Congressional District.


While her socialist platform includes lots of "free" services for Americans, such as Medicare-for-all and free college tuition, Ocasio-Cortez has also criticized Israel. She called it a "massacre" after approximately 62 Palestinians were killed by Israeli troops in May during clashes at the Gaza security fence.


Yet it was disclosed by none other than Hamas that 50 of those killed were members of its own militant group, not civilians.


Jan Markell, founder of Olive Tree Ministries, says Ocasio-Cortez has been "indoctrinated" by the current education system to side with the Palestinians.


"It's very difficult," Markell tells OneNewsNow, "to get the under-40 population to anything that is Israel-focused because they have been indoctrinated, wherever they go, that Israel is the bully, that Israel is Apartheid, and the Palestinians need all our sympathy, which all of that would be lies but that's what they've been taught."


Markell also warns that Ocasio-Cortez typifies the warning of Zachariah 12:3, the Old Testament passage that warns the nations will eventually turn against Israel.


"That means most people, in most nations, including America," Markell cautions. "And I think the thing that will lead that in America number one will be Democrats, but number two will be the younger people."



Mark 6:27-29

And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison.  And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel:  and the damsel gave it to her mother.  And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.


With the recent passing of Independence Day, I thought you might enjoy the following trivia questions concerning the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  Enjoy!



1. How many steps does the guard take during his walk across the tomb of the Unknowns

    and why?

21 steps. It alludes to the twenty-one gun salute, which is the highest honor given any military or foreign dignitary.


2. How long does he hesitate after his about face to begin his return walk and why?


21 seconds for the same reason as answer number 1.


3. Why are his gloves wet?


His gloves are moistened to prevent his losing his grip on the rifle.


4. Does he carry his rifle on the same shoulder all the time, and if not, why not?


He carries the rifle on the shoulder away from the tomb. After his march across the path, he executes an about face, and moves the rifle to the outside shoulder.


5. How often are the guards changed?


Guards are changed every thirty minutes, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.


6. What are the physical traits of the guard limited to?


For a person to apply for guard duty at the tomb, he must be between 5' 10" and 6' 2" tall and his waist size cannot exceed 30."


7. What are the other requirements of the Guard:


They must commit 2 years of life to guard the tomb, live in a barracks under the tomb, and cannot drink any alcohol on or off duty for the rest of their lives. They cannot swear in public for the rest of their lives and cannot disgrace the uniform {fighting} or the tomb in any way.


After two years, the guard is given a wreath pin that is worn on their lapel signifying they served as guard of the tomb. There are only 400 presently worn.


The guard must obey these rules for the rest of their lives or give up the wreath pin.


The shoes are specially made with very thick soles to keep the heat and cold from their feet. There are metal heel plates that extend to the top of the shoe in order to make the loud click as they come to a halt.


There are no wrinkles, folds or lint on the uniform.


Guards dress for duty in front of a full-length mirror.


The first six months of duty a guard cannot talk to anyone, nor watch TV.


All off duty time is spent studying the 175 notable people laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. A guard must memorize who they are and where they are interred.


Among the notables are: President Taft, Joe E. Lewis {the boxer} and Medal of Honor winner Audie Murphy, {the most decorated soldier of WWII} of Hollywood fame.


Every guard spends five hours a day getting his uniforms ready for guard duty.


On the ABC evening news, it was reported that, because of the dangers from Hurricane Isabelle approaching Washington DC, the military members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment. They respectfully declined the offer, "No way, Sir!"


Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can be afforded to a serviceperson.


The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.


We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.


God Bless them all.
