A Rainbow Appeared ...

A flood of water covered all the land adjacent to the waterways of Manhattan and the New York Metropolitan area, including Coney Island, Long Island, Woodmere and the Rockaways, Staten Island, and including the coastline along the Eastern States of America.

There were days of warnings and ominous reports.

Now that the storm is over, America can say we have witnessed a monstrous storm in real time! This was not in another country, with nameless peoples affected, with America sending disaster relief and personnel, and international offers of rescue aid. This occurred in ... the America of our friends, families, and regular citizens. This occurred in the country that other nations look to for help and rescue when they are in disaster mode.

The areas under greatest hardship had people left without their home, possessions, utilities for personal dignity, transportation, food and water, trying to protect their lives from marauders and looters.

In what seemed a small version of an EMP attack, the lights went out and fear and desperation moved in.

There have been other 'attacks' on America in recent years, killer tornadoes, killer hurricanes, freezing storms, earthquakes, doughts and mid-country flooding, destroying towns, homes, and food supplies and farming crops.

Was there ever another time in history that America experienced such 'natural' onslaughts? Maybe in Biblical times, maybe in Noach's time.

Do you think all this is the capriciousness of "weather"? Man does not control the weather. G-d controls 'nature', nature is an expression of G-d.

A rainbow appeared over Manhattan as the water and clouds were receding after the storm moved northward toward Canada. The rainbow is a sign, a "covenant of the rainbow is between G-d and man and the animal kinds that were with Noah on the Ark: a promise that there would never be such an event again that would destroy all flesh on the land." We have witnessed other local floods since then therefore this is a promise that there would never be another global flood to destroy all flesh.

The world is in such upheavel, Europe in financial decline and social discord; the Middle East experiencing a rolling blackout of death and destruction attacking all the countries surrounding little Israel.

In the midst of the disintegration of mores and values, "the good ole days" of one's memories, and the seeming balance of good and evil that fills our planet earth, something is coming undone. "It" is undeniable now. If one has eyes to see and ears to hear, one cannot deny the demoralization and collapse of national infrastructures.

Nations and Peoples need to be rescued from tyranny, authoritarianism, domination, oppression, coercion. Peoples and nations need inspiration, purpose to their daily life, encouragement to learn how to earn a living independently, return a world back to farming. There is so much land underutilized in depressed areas. Build factories so workers can create supplies for their own people, town and country. Governments are failing to 'enable' (empower, employ) their citizens in meaningful produce and production.

A one world government domination is the epitome of evil.

A recognition of G-d as the Creator of the world, the Jewish People as His Chosen Nation, non-Jews observing the Noahide laws, and the Jewish cultivation of Life in their homeland of Eretz Yisrael.

Peoples of the World need to return to the Noahide laws, provided here via Wikipedia:

In Judaism, the Seven Laws of Noah (Hebrew: שבע מצוות בני נח‎ Sheva mitzvot B'nei Noach) form the major part of the Noachide Laws, or Noahide Code. This code is a set of moral imperatives that, according to the Talmud, were given by God as a binding set of laws for the "children of Noah" – that is, all of humankind.

According to religious Judaism, any non-Jew who adheres to these laws is regarded as a righteous gentile, and is assured of a place in the World to Come (Olam Haba), the final reward of the righteous. Adherents are often called "B'nei Noach" (Children of Noah) or "Noahides".

The seven laws listed by the Tosefta and the Talmud are:

Prohibition of Idolatry
Prohibition of Murder
Prohibition of Theft
Prohibition of Sexual immorality
Prohibition of Blasphemy
Prohibition of eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive
Establishment of courts of law

Noahide Laws comprise the six laws which were given to Adam in the Garden of Eden, according to the Talmud's interpretation of Gen 2:16, and a seventh one, which was added after the Flood of Noah. According to rabbinic Judaism, the 613 mitzvot or "commandments" given in the written Torah, as well as their reasonings in the oral Torah, were issued to the Jews only, and are therefore binding only upon them, having inherited the obligation from their ancestors.
