From Palestine to Humboldt

From Palestine to Humboldt

Canadians from coast to coast very likely shared in Sunday night’s Humboldt Broncos’ vigil. One cleric asked why such horror and despair embraced their community. He may not have realized it but the the answer resonated throughout his entire eulogy. The answer was a call to remembrance, and a need to understand, especially in our growing secular world, that the cross awaits us all at the end of the road. Jesus’ name reverberated across the airwaves like no other time that I can remember. While His calling card is enigmatic, it is intended to awaken us all to life’s many tragedies, and to understand that He is the road to everlasting salvation. 

In the mid-80s, then a young executive working for an investment arm of General Motors, I travelled throughout much of Saskatchewan. Arriving in Regina, I then drove to Moose Jaw, Swift Current, Humboldt, Prince Albert and finally Nipawin.  I now reflect and ask how such a quite open plain with visibility for miles could present such sadness. God works in mysterious ways and Hs message is often times cryptic. We humans are provided clarity, just like that open expanse, yet we fail to see the obvious, and so too the harsh realties of evil.

A human rights activist by the name of Craig Murray wrote:

I cannot imagine the cold courage it must take to be a Palestinian, walking in protest, unarmed, towards the fence that contains the agony of their long drawn-out genocide, in the knowledge that the bullets will start splintering bones and ripping out brain matter around them, and every millisecond could be their own last.

Mr. Murray presents another ongoing tragedy where clarity fails to present itself. Jesus wept, but His tears did not discriminate nor did they fail to acknowledge the suffering of all humanity. The genocide perpetrated by the jew cannot be ignored. For one-third of Palestinians are Christians. We further cannot ignore the role of jews in the murder of over 500,000 Iraqi children and their ISIS led army which has perpetrated genocide in Afghanistan, Syria and Libya. 

For what did Jesus say of the jew - John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

During last night’s vigil the media occasionally pointed the camera in the direction of Justinian. In the back of my mind I was angered by a national leader who embraces a demonic presence by the name of George Soros. A jew who funds chaos, war and rebellion in Christian nations. After which a jew-influenced media blames and demonizes Muslims, Russia, Syria and Iran. Clarity arrives when you recognize the evil of the jew and their hate for Jesus and Christians.

Easter is a time when Christians embrace and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Accepting a distant and sorrowful event such as the crucifixion is almost inconceivable in today’s technology-laced world, yet we must behold the message of the transfiguration just as we transform our lives in a modern world.

The young men and the crew of the Humboldt Broncos who passed away are now playing in God’s arena. If we as a nation can mourn so greatly for these young men, then we must extend that same sorrow to the soldier who falls defending political lies and the child who takes their last breathe because we failed to shelter them from hunger, poverty, disease, pedophilia and war.

Finally, do you not find it odd that once President Trump announced that American troops would be pulled out of Syria, the Trump Tower experienced a fire and a Chlorine-gas attack occurred in Syria - the latter event was immediately blamed on Russia and Syria. I blame ISRAEL - the land of the jews and their father Satan.

Thank you and I will leave you with one of my poems,

The Spiritual Bone
Thursday, September 11, 2014

There are profound mysteries in this temporal life
The mind’s eye is as sightless as the indentured wife
Torturous is the realization that the enigmatic whole can never be known
The elixir of life unveils itself only to the One who sits atop the Godly throne

Illustrious philosophers in contemplation tried their best to explain
How to separate the ubiquitous mind from the watery brain
Logical deduction postulated theories attempting to understand the gnawing unknown
The paradox came in knowing that the flesh was in fact detached from the spiritual bone

The Absolute provides no integer for the metaphysical measure
In the “no beginning and the no end” lies the cornucopian treasure
Let the mind rest appreciating that life can never be explained
It is only at death’s door that your curiosity will one day be ordained.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
