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 those that can grasp the bigger meanings and understanding, and maybe challenge me intelligently. Side note: When I was in computer industry, I always needed a couple of people to bounce ideas and concepts off of, there by displaying my misconceptions, errors in thinking or even the evidence that I was on the correct path.

http://ask-james.com/wordpress1/?p=1144 “ ISHRAEL?”

http://ask-james.com/wordpress1/?p=377 “What Have You Done?!”

Those are a three of my writings, which at present count are over 200 writings on this one board. There are other writings, in other places which are not published here. While I attempt to leave all politics out of my writings, sometimes Life creeps in.

These would be the rules for study.

1) The TORAH is the Written TORAH of Moses(Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy–in English) or (Beresihith(In the beginning), Shemoth(The Names, Vayiqra(And He Called), Bamidbar(In the wilderness), Devarim(The Words).

2) The TANAKH (TA= TORAH, NA – Navi’im=Prophets) and (KH= The Writings) is the Same reference as the Old Testament.

3) These are our tools(primarily)
A) TORAH (The Law):
Bereishith (In the beginning…) (Genesis)
Shemoth (The names…) (Exodus)
Vayiqra (And He called…) (Leviticus)
Bamidbar (In the wilderness…) (Numbers)
Devarim (The words…) (Deuteronomy)

B) NEVI’IM (The Prophets):
Yehoshua (Joshua)
Shoftim (Judges)
Shmuel (I &II Samuel)
Melakhim (I & II Kings)
Yeshayah (Isaiah)
Yirmyah (Jeremiah)
Yechezqel (Ezekiel)
The Twelve (treated as one book):
Hoshea (Hosea)
Yoel (Joel)
Amos
Ovadyah (Obadiah)
Yonah (Jonah)
Mikhah (Micah)
Nachum
Chavaqquq (Habbakkuk)
Tzefanyah (Zephaniah)
Chaggai
Zekharyah (Zechariah)
Malakhi

C) KETHUVIM (The Writings):
Tehillim (Psalms)
Mishlei (Proverbs)
Iyov (Job)
Shir Ha-Shirim (Song of Songs)
Ruth
Eikhah (Lamentations)
Qoheleth (the author’s name) (Ecclesiastes)
Esther
Daniel
Ezra & Nechemyah (Nehemiah) (treated as one book)
Divrei Ha-Yamim (The words of the days) (Chronicles)

4) Opinions are nice but, they require the References which support that opinion, or it will be given a: “yeah, so you have a baseless opinion” status or more common “I was just saying…..”. An opinion Yes, valuable not really. We need evidence for it to be considered as information. An example: I say that the TORAH is Written by Moses. To support this opinion I would need to given one or more references showing that Moses did write it. As in “Exodus 24:4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the mount, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.” Or
1 Kings 2: 2 ‘I go the way of all the earth; be thou strong therefore, and show thyself a man; 3 and keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, and His commandments, and His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to that which is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself;” **Statement by King David to the To Be King, Solomon son of David from his death bed.

5) We require two or more witnesses for a matter to be known. Just like the TORAH’s Law “at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall a matter be established” in “Deuteronomy 19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth; at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall a matter be established.” And “Deuteronomy 17:6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is to die be put to death; at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.” The witness of Two or More, with verses for context, For I shall look at the context being presented, to understand the meanings in the text. This has served me well, over my life time, to seek for Two or More separate reports from separate sources.

Based on the above, do you have something to add to this list?

So what do you think? Are you up for this?

Is anyone listening? You still have breath and life, you can return and repair your deeds. You just need to Do It while you have time.

I can not save you, no one can., you must Return and do that which is Right.

I can show you the way, if you want to know.

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

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.’)

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 […]

Understanding What Is Coming - Revised 20170118

Are you trying to understand what is coming? Will you understand before it is to late?

Looking around the world, at the people, the news, the behavior of: countries, people, the left, the right, the . . . . , well there is a lot to think about.

Yes, I know, I put people in twice. It is about the people. About how everyone of us deals with each other. Whether or not an individual person returns to the ALMIGHTY; prior to having no time, no ability to change even if they still had a choice. Understand that you must […]

A Response On FB 20160413 Expanded

So many willfully choose to not understand the prophets. Shame! “a redeemer shall come to Zion, and to those who repent of transgression in Jacob” Isaiah 59:20, Torah From a posting on Facebook. My response was and is: James Jeffries Here is another example of how a piece of a verse is taken, and then given ‘desired’ meaning. The people being spoken to are identified back in Isaiah 56.

In Isaiah 59 we have: ”

15 And truth is lacking, and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey. And the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him that […]

Why Should I Study The Written Torah And Tanakh?

Why should I study the Written Torah and Tanakh?

This question comes from the mouths of many people. People I talk to in America; have talked to in Israel; have talked to in Shul; and even decades of talking with xtians. It is surprising to me, how many simply don’t care, BUT not to the LORD.

What will you discover in the Written Torah, by the Hand of Moses? Will it be worth the effort? Can you tell me while standing on one foot? YES, with Five Points.

Here are what you will find in the Written Torah of Moses.

UN Vote on Israel, allowed by Obama Adminstration! You should know this.

Just in case you are interested, and have not seen:

The vote was able to pass the 15-member council on Friday because the United States broke with a long-standing approach of diplomatically shielding Israel and did not wield its veto power as it had on many times before – a decision that Netanyahu called “shameful”.{https://ca.news.yahoo.com/defying-pressure-u-lets-u-n-denounce-israeli-003317040.html}

Or “President Barack Obama’s administration staged a “shameful ambush” by allowing the UN Security Council to pass a resolution declaring Israel’s West Bank settlements illegal, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in his first public comments since Friday’s vote.” {https://www.bloomberg.com/…/obama-staged-shameful-ambush-ag…}

Atonement, How and Whys

This will be a difficult one for me. Many of the people on the earth today either do not believe in their actions as sin or think all you should need to say is “I’m Sorry” with a pretended truth to the words.

There are those that have faith that on their death bed, no matter how bad, if they just ask for forgivness, it will be fixed and they will go to heaven(where ever heaven is.) so “keep on keepin’ on”. As it has been said in many forms.

Is that right? Is that Justice? No matter how bad […]
