One Truth, One Hope, One Salvation Go HERE!
Living Waters, Psalms of the Watchman, Go HERE!
Israel, enemies, and Maoz Israel are in the midst of a struggle. Here is an excerpt for you to read. We support Israel, Maoz Israel, the Jerusalem Watchman, Jerry Golden, and the many other ministries working to bring the gospel of Yeshua to Israel. Editor: Warn Radio Ministries and websites
So, how did all my years of bomb-shelter, gas-mask training pay off? Not well. This media dork, did the exact opposite of what he was supposed to do. The siren rang, and rather than run for shelter, I grabbed my iPhone, went to the window and began filming. Filming just what… I don’t know. I wanted to capture the sound of this treacherous siren and to see out the window of the Tel Aviv skyline, in case something happened.
In a flash, I suddenly heard my co-worker running down the hall, screaming my name. “Chaim, what are you doing?!” “I’m filming,” I told her. “Get away from the window and come down to the shelter,” she shouted. All of this back and forth, you must remember, was happening within the 15-second window we have to get to safety.
Just then, as I turned from the window, stopped recording and headed out the door of my office… silence. And then, a ‘boom’. A boom so penetrating, it shook the building.
And right there, in that moment. I was changed forever. I was now a player in a centuries old drama. I was now living through the latest battle over God’s holy land.
The attacks on Tel Aviv didn’t end on Thursday. They continued relentlessly on Friday, Saturday and twice on Sunday.

Western Garden Survivalist is a work of love and patience by the Editor DGS. It is bringing the true west, and the old world, to the current day we live in. It is about the way my grandparents and others did things and how they survived through it all as homestead pioneers in the West.
It is about learning, teaching, and undergoing that change to be able to survive no matter what comes. It is about home cures, homemade butter and foods, gardens, planting, harvesting, living, hunting, family, faith, and survival at all costs. It is about protecting your family and their lives and living life for the Lord God and his Son Yeshua. This is Western Garden Survivalist.

I speak only of Tel Aviv, because that’s where I live…but to be sure the southern portion of Israel (Sderot, Beersheva, Ashdod, Ashekelon, etc…) took a bloody and relentless pounding of nearly 1,000 terrorist rockets. Civilians and soldiers were killed. It was a nightmare. The sirens even rang out in Jerusalem. That hadn’t happened in decades!
Then, yesterday, the ultimate of the Palestinian terrorists’ greatest hits. The bus bombing.
On Wednesday morning, a terrorist without even the decency to blow themselves up, placed a bomb on the #142 bus in Tel Aviv and left it to explode, injuring 2 dozen.
It happened just down the street from our Maoz office. This was for me was the ‘final straw’.
Before heading out for work, taking a shower, or even going to the bathroom, I had to plan out in my mind just what I would do in case the siren went off. I had to plan out my route to and from the bus to work… where would I hide? I had to make a peace that if I really were in the shower, I would know that there was no way, I could grab clothes, run out the door and make it to the shelter in time. I had to make peace that perhaps I might actually be killed, and die right there in the shower.
When I got home, I turned on the news expecting to see the worst. But instead, I was jolted to hear the exact opposite. We weren’t expanding the war…we were ending it!
What in the world? Ending the war, after they just bombed a bus?! I was dumbfounded.
At first I didn’t know if this was good news or bad news. The thought of ‘no more war’ sounded great. No friends dying, no more sirens, no more bomb shelters. But…why a ceasefire now? Why did we Israelis go through all of this madness for 8 days? Why did people die? What was this all about?
