A Response To One Playing Devils Advocate

While I was celebrating a Feast of Unleaven Bread dinner, a Holocaust Survivor, began a rant against the LIVING GOD OF Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

“Why should I server a selfish, jealous, maniacal, egotistical, self centered god? . . . . .”

I began a rebuttal with questions like: You should be able to fight your mother and your father, that gave you life and safety, clothed you and feed you and an education, and belong to a family, and . . . . .?

The immediate response is “I am just playing devil’s advocate!”

So here I am going to play GOD’S ADVOCATE!

Any person from this earth, is but the equivalent on an atom, compare to the Earth, which is a tiny particle, compared to our solar system. Another particle compared to the galaxy, and so on and forth.

Let us for a moment, assume that Carl Sagan was correct.
During a public lecture at Cornell University in 1994, Carl Sagan presented the image to the audience and shared his reflections on the deeper meaning behind the idea of the Pale Blue Dot: . . . .
Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. . . . .

He might be correct, if he did not have a soul! But, that is the whole point of our individual existence. Is it not?

If you have a soul, it is not of this earth. Your soul is a portion of the SPIRIT OF THE ALMIGHTY, Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. HE IS THE LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL.

With out that SOUL you really are just dirt. Therefore of no more importance, than any other lump in the universe. Gravitational value, speed and direction, with potential impact on some other lump else where in the universe.

If there is no god and you have no soul, then you are nothing! Got it? Nothing!

I tell you that this is not the Truth! Even as scientist are learning more about this world, people, anatomy, physics, astro-physics, biology, DNA, chemical actions and reactions, . . . . . We are finding that the creation by chance is such a rarity, that in numerical value, to be impossible to create by chance. This is true for making proteins from amino acids and peptide bonds, in the correct sequence to make even the simplest single working protein, where hundreds and thousands are required to make the simplest life form. The creation, maintenance, usage and disposal of all the proteins and other chemicals used to create a life form are in the billions of lines of code in the DNA, found in every living cell. These are only a few of the impossible, by accident, miracles that make up your life form.

Not an accident! Created! For a purpose. Every cell of life has a specific purpose and existence, accidents are removed from the system, by the system.

What we have been learning about the tiniest parts of life, have their counter components in the global, solar system, galaxies and universe. A designer, architect, builder and maintainer is in evidence.

It is not the LIVING GOD that has a problem, it is us! We are selfish, jealous, maniacal, egotistical, self- centered. . . . Desiring to believe that we can and should control what the CREATOR made. We cannot control ourselves or our existence. It is we that are valuable beyond belief, to our FATHER, but only The Creator and more valuable when we accept HIM as “my FATHER”, and do what HE says is right to do. Every one of us is given an existence and a soul to decide whether we are HIS or not.

With the simple rules HE gave, we would find our world a perfect place to live. How much more can you know when you get past the basics of this life and make it to the WORLD TO COME?

Do you understand now? You have a value only because HE says that you are of value to HIM. You can be one of HIS Children, but only when you accept HIM as the FATHER OF YOUR SOUL, Your Existence, Your VALUE. Having the same value as every one of HIS Children.

Why is there a world for us to inhabit? Why wait so many years, knowing that most of us will not accept HIM. Maintaining and nurturing every sinner, rebellious child? Because HE KNOWS everyone one of HIS CHILDREN, those that will return unto HIM and Keep HIS LAWS.Yet, every soul must choose and act accordingly.  I believe HE is waiting for the LAST ONE and then a START THE WORLD OVER with HIS CHILDREN. (RESET- with a total destruction.)

Don’t have a Written Torah or Tanakh, try this one: JPS 1917 Version

IT is to your benefit to HEARKEN until the LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL, and to your pain and shame to do otherwise.

If it is not already true, then My prayer is that The LORD grant you eyes that see, ears that hear and an understanding heart, then you return unto HIM soon!(Isaiah 6: 9 And He said: ‘Go, and tell this people: hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they, seeing with their eyes, and hearing with their ears, and understanding with their heart, return, and be healed.’)

My prayer is that The LORD grant you eyes that see, ears that hear and an understanding heart, then you return unto HIM soon!

Why Are Most Of Us Worse Than The Pharaoh in the Exodus?

Why are most of us are worse than, the Pharaoh in the Exodus Story?

We spend our lives, not learning what is really important. That GOD is; also that Your soul, which is more valuable that anything you can desire, is yours to save or lose.

The Hebrews were out of Egypt in a few months of the LORD sending Moses and Aaron, which came, and said unto Pharaoh:, ‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: Let My people go, that they may hold a feast unto Me in the wilderness.’ “Exodus 5:1”

Yes! Most are worse than Pharaoh, […]

Do Unto Others_Reviewed

Do unto others. . . .

The religions of the world have really been beating this one for a long time. I don’t see that this has improved the world.

Let us look at the examples of the text.

http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0319.htm JPS 1917 Leviticus 19:18 Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

“ thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”

This has a number of ramifications and willful (by humans) re-interpretations.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) http://bible.cc/matthew/7-12.htm Matthew 7:12 Therefore all […]

A Death, Then What?

It Was The Death of Your Body.

In watching various movies and reading stories over a couple of decades, somethings happened.

Instead of just seeing a death, I saw: that it is usually sudden, usually not your choice of when or how. But, it could happen with the next heart beat or not. So what happens when you pass that point and you find that your body is no longer usable?

Your soul is not dead, yet. However, it does contain the record of everything you have done. In some thinking this would be the sum of you and your […]

Are We Not Righteous?

The Children of Jacob have Covenants with the LORD GOD. These included belonging to the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. Are we not already the LORD’S? First you are required to choose, but the short answer for most is: Absolutely Not!

How can we get it Right: Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine; 6 and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the […]

Who Thinks They Can Study With Me?

Do you think you are knowledgeable about the Tanakh?

How about the written TORAH?

For me to help others to learn, is great. I really enjoy teaching those that want the Truth. Those that ask intelligent questions, even from a child. The last seem to grasp what is Written and then able to ask better questions than most adults or religious leaders I have ever met.

In a way this is great, for children are most inquisitive and if treated to direct answers and discussion, they can be very fast learners.

But, the Study I am looking for are with […]

The GOD, Who Brought You Out Of Egypt To BE YOUR GOD!

Google Custom search of the JPS 1917 Edition for “out of the land of Egypt” yields About 116 results (0.53 seconds)

This phrase from “Exodus 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” This verse declares a few a few things. 1) I am the LORD your GOD. 2) (Because) I brought you out of the land of Egypt!. 3)(Out of ) The house of bondage.

These three items are fulfillment of a deal made with Abraham, Isaac […]

Are You Saying That, We Caused The Evil That Happened To Us?

Are You Saying That We Caused The Evil That Happened To Us?

The Holocaust is Our FAULT?

My response is: “Well, . . . . I have to say that it looks that way according to the Word of The MOST HIGH via HIS Prophets. Yes!”

So, Are you ready for the next one? It is here, if you look, you can see it happening.

Our history, even that of the last 200 years, bears out the punishments and salvations.

This is how too many conversations go, when I suggest that we(Jews), could and will end the worlds trouble.

(Deuteronomy […]

Who Can You Trust?

Who can you trust?

Deuteronomy 18: 13 Thou shalt be whole-hearted with the LORD thy God.

This seems a simple statement. We do not personally hear the LORD anymore. We either have writings, like the “Writings Of Moses” or the writings of a “Prophet” or you might just listen to a teacher of today telling us about what was written. However, we almost never Hear the Word Of GOD ourself.

So who do you trust?

Deuteronomy 18: 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, one […]

A Strange Dream

A strange dream to be sure, but that is not what was important.

The Dream:

A man, about six feet in height. Maybe, 190 pounds when he gets out of the shower. Seeming to be no more that average in looks. He is the one behind all of the trouble in the dream. Always the one at the back of the crowd, but the influencer that pushed others forward in anger and rage.

I was looking in the direction the crowd was going. As the throng of human lives push pass me, for I was not with them. I had […]
