This will be my answer. Because there is massive amount information in the Torah of Moses and the Writing of the Prophets,–in the Tanakh, which I quote often and strive to leave out my opinion, I will state my informed opinion on this matter and reduce the amount quoted text and reference. I will ask that if you read any farther that, you accept my statements as what I know to be true, at least until you have read to the end. After that, if you are in doubt about me, read the rest of my writings or READ the TANAKH and show me where I am wrong!!
There are some things to get out of the way:
1) Our very actions demand that we receive all of the curses OUR LORD describes and caused to be written by the Hand of Moses. Those writings were to warn us regarding our choices. We have not found it important to do as we promised the GOD OF OUR FATHERS. When we declared with one voice ‘We Will Do and we will hear’, instead we ‘REFUSE’ to do; to regret or to even consider our path.
2) I have great sympathy for GOD’s Prophets, especially Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel the seer, above the other prophets. Each of these were shown our behavior and the results of that behavior, it must have hurt them deeply to know that their words would actually save so few of the children of Israel. Fortunately they each knew the end and that there will be some saved alive(souls), not a total waste.
3) I know that the ALMIGHTY KNOWS before saying let there be light, exactly which souls would choose HIM and when. It is like baking a special cake. You must get all of the ingredients and the equipment and then every part takes precisely the correct amount of time, ingredients, action and care, to get the desired result.
THE ALMIGHT IS TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUS, HIS WAY is PERFECT, it is we that are lost and refuse to seek the RIGHT PATH. I choose the LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL/ISRAEL and seek to be righteous before HIM, it is not as difficult as you may believe it to be.
In truth, I have found no reason that HE should not allow it(disaster) to happen again, for we still refuse to be saved. And the next disaster is coming very soon, but I think that you do not know this, do you? I expect this to be the last one.
Why? Let us start with a little Leviticus 26: 14) But if ye will not hearken unto Me, and will not do all these commandments; 15) and if ye shall reject My statutes, and if your soul abhor Mine ordinances, so that ye will not do all My commandments, but break My covenant 16) I also will do this unto you: I will appoint terror over you, even consumption and fever, that shall make the eyes to fail, and the soul to languish; and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
–That is the start of it. The start of what? The start of the curses, when we refuse to listen to GOD; We refuse HIS laws and teachings; we break our deal(covenant) to ‘DO and Hear’. It does not stop GOD’S side of the deal, ‘The we are Exodus 19:5) HIS treasured People, a Exodus 19:6) ….Nation of Priest. . . . Going on in this chapter, we find that GOD has mercy upon us and checks to SEE if we have learned and changed. I actually know that if HE did not stop, there would not be any remaining for the World to see.
However, a remnant can be as small as ONE. [Exodus 32:9 And the LORD said unto Moses: ‘I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people. 10 Now therefore let Me alone, that My wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them; and I will make of thee a great nation.’ ] So, what did Moses argue that they should not be utterly destroyed? [Exodus 32:11 And Moses besought the LORD his God, and said: ‘LORD, why doth Thy wrath wax hot against Thy people, that Thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? 12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, saying: For evil did He bring them forth, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from Thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against Thy people. 13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Thy servants, to whom Thou didst swear by Thine own self, and saidst unto them: I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.’] Bear in mind that the LORD knew all of this, and has HIS OWN PLANS. So Moses did not change the LORD’S PLAN, it is presented for US to understand. Three things are presented: 1) This is the LORD’s Plan and Power, everything is HIS. 2) The People will talk about how happens to this Stiffnecked People(GOD’S GLORY PROVED, all of the World and the People are HIS to teach.)., 3) There is a Covenant(Contract), plan which covers as much time as the LORD declares to exist, for HIS Purposes, not ours.
What then? Leviticus 26:21) And if ye walk contrary unto Me, and will not hearken unto Me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
This continues seven times greater each time. Until Leviticus 26:39) And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies’ lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them. 40) And they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, in their treachery which they committed against Me, and also that they have walked contrary unto Me. 41) I also will walk contrary unto them, and bring them into the land of their enemies; if then perchance their uncircumcised heart be humbled, and they then be paid the punishment of their iniquity; 42) then will I remember My covenant with Jacob, and also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land. . . . .
Whether we are or are not at the LAST DAY, you can save your soul and perchance others will follow your lead. You only need to follow the LAWS from the Hand of Moses(Leviticus 26:46) These are the statutes and ordinances and laws, which the LORD made between Him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.) and keep the covenant(contract) made at Sinai you.(Exodus 20 ..23; accepted in 19 and 24, again in Deuteronomy)
That’s the easy way to gain GOD’S BLESSINGS and PROTECTION.
So, why did Our GOD allow the Holocaust to happen? Or for that matter, the Progroms, the Expulsions, the Disasters which have been every couple of generation? Why are we ready the next one(Last One?) now?
The Covenants(Contracts) which HE made with our fathers is a two sided deal. Side one of these contracts is, If You WILL do these things . . . . , BLESSINGS so that ALL OF THE WORLD will want to be in. Reject, fight against, rebel, IGNORE this and Punishment, so that the WHOLE WORLD will see and be amazed. We are shown how this works in the Written Torah(by the Hand of Moses). Even in the story of the Exodus from Egypt. The World Still talks about the Exodus. In comparison, the world spends no time with regards to the Tsunami in Indonesia. Where it is estimated that, 227,898 people were killed or listed as missing and presumed dead. Almost no thought is given to that event. There are many such events in the history of the earth not brought to mind or thought of. Yet, The Exodus from Egypt is still discussed.
We still for some reason believe that we are able to do what we want and ignore what we want to ignore. We accept re-writes and man made rules that by-pass, over ride or simply attempt to do away with the Written TORAH, while expecting NO CONSEQUENCES. See? The LORD knows/knew what we are: “ a stiffnecked people”.
O.k. what have we done today that is a problem? First, we have not stopped doing that which our fathers taught us, instead we call it ‘Tradition’ and continue to not use our brains, hearts or anything that might actually give us understanding.
Second, We have used many tools to keep from following GOD’S LAWS. In the Jewish world we have placed these tools and processes above the LAWS OF GOD, which include: Mishnah; Talmud; Gamarah; Midrash; Traditions; Sages; Rabbis; and a genuine personal lack of desire to know what I am to do for GOD. We have done everything, so that we reject the WORD OF OUR SALVATION. We do add Political Correctness, Social (In-)Justice(which is not JUSTICE), teachings so corrupt that our children, on their own, discover that we do not speak the truth about Our GOD, because there is conflict in our actions and teachings and sayings and OUR TORAH. What a crying shame for me, watching my people advocate, even run to their own destruction without even considering our history and what we have as proofs of GOD. Are we then Lemmings, eager to run of the cliff?
Another warning: The last day is soon to come, and there will be no time to Stop doing that which GOD abhors and DO that which is Righteous. This all takes time to demonstrate that you have changed and will keep GOD’S LAW. Start today by learning what is in the Covenant (Exodus 20 .. 24) and change your life.
The Last Day? Have you heard the phrase ‘The World To Come’? On the last day, as I see it, all flesh upon the earth will Burn away and so will the Heavens and the Earth, save those that HASHEM saves as righteous. –other than being in my writings, this is pervasive in the Tanakh.
Why did GOD allow the Holocaust? **We reject OUR GOD and HE let the desires of our hearts happen, we got the results, except that we are not totally GONE. Proof text: Ezekiel 14:22 And, behold, though there be left a remnant therein that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters; behold, when they come forth unto you, and ye see their way and their doings, then ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it; 23 and they shall comfort you, when ye see their way and their doings, and ye shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord GOD.’
**Jeremiah 6:19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not attended unto My words, and as for My teaching, they have rejected it.
Ezekiel 14:3) ’Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their mind, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face; should I be inquired of at all by them? 4) Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them: Thus saith the Lord GOD: Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his mind, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet–I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols; 5) that I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all turned away from Me through their idols. . . .
And so it goes. Our sins and our idols keep the LORD OUR GOD away from us, and when the troubles come up on those around us, we are not separated from the troubles. In Ezekiel 14, GOD gives us examples of the troubles and a definition of Righteousness that can save you, but no one else will you save.(With the possible exception of wife(ves)and husband being of one flesh before GOD.) As individuals, each of us will receive the judgment our deeds have earned us. Ezekiel 14:6) ”Therefore say unto the house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord GOD: Return ye, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.” –We can change, we need to change, we must change, for if there is anyone you wish to LIVE, your example maybe that thing which helps them return.
Ezekiel 14:21 For thus saith the Lord GOD: How much more when I send My four sore judgments against Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the evil beasts, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast. 22 And, behold, though there be left a remnant therein that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters; behold, when they come forth unto you, and ye see their way and their doings, then ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it; 23 and they shall comfort you, when ye see their way and their doings, and ye shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord GOD.’
Okay, Why did GOD allow the Holocaust to happen? I ask you, If we will not accept GOD and HIS Definition of Righteousness(Laws and Teachings) and we demand that we can do our own thing, what then are you to HIM? Why should HE save you from your actions and your desires? GOD is NOT your creation, you are HIS, and yet we think we should be in control and HE should do our bidding. HE DISAGREES, (so do I) and lets us fall, some remnant will return, maybe not you, but some will, HE is waiting for them.
Do you want to me one of the Remnant?
