Pro 18:19 A brother offended [is harder to be won] than a strong city: and [their] contentions [are] like the bars of a castle.
Hsa 4:1-19 ¶ Hear the word of the L-RD, ye children of Israel: for the L-RD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because [there is] no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of G-d in the land.
By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. (bloodshed follows bloodshed.)
Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people [are] as they that strive with the priest.
Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy G-d, I will also forget thy children.
As they were increased, so they sinned against me: [therefore] will I change their glory into shame.
They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.
And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the L-RD.
Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.
My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused [them] to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their G-d.
They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof [is] good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.
I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for (the men) themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people [that] doth not understand shall fall.
Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, [yet] let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Bethaven, nor swear, The L-RD liveth.
For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the L-RD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
Ephraim [is] joined to idols: let him alone.
Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers [with] shame do love, Give ye.
The wind hath bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
These are secret cultish combinations of individuals and families, of every nation, culture and race, who do these things…I tend to be hard on those I expect the greatest degree of righteousness from. As G-d was with Israel, so I judge those who purport to be distinctive upper class whites or what have you, in any nation whose aristocracy has gained the upper-hand over the masses, and reigns quite unopposed and matter of factly, with no one questioning where their authority comes from or where they intend to lead the population under their care.
There are families, who seem very clean and very lawful and have much power and influence in the United States, and yet in secret, their practices would put The Adams Family to shame!
Better is open whoredom than hidden adultery.
An whore may be hired for a loaf of bread, but an adulteress stalks a man’s very life. Proverbs 6:26
A people who use their daughters as bait and send them forth to defile and despoil the wells of their neighbors, basically to screw the enemy, whether imagined or real, is not worthy of anyone’s respect much less tribute.
Unfortunately, those who have fallen and suffer according to the Law of G-d, know the Law fairly well, and know they may use it to ensnare, defraud, slander and oppress their enemies. And when you are a fallen people, enemies become more important than allies; having either/or I mean. And so, maketh strange bed partners…
A man, worth his salt, must immediately understand why the L-RD would not punish the women involved in these crimes, though they may be more bitterly and maliciously active than the men, they are required to act as their society, a fallen society makes way broad or narrow to survive…
Married men and women can become very bitterly involved in this type of scheming to survive. Add drugs and alcohol, and it becomes enjoyable for a time, but as it is left to fester becometh very bitter indeed; with less and less reason to be happy, if only wickedly so to boot…
You’ve got to understand the mentality of the evil one, who no longer has a right to enjoy the happiness and righteousness that is available to all the living.
When Adam called his wife the mother of all the living, he realized why he could still be happy though he had lost his own opportunity to live as the L-RD would have him.
Now, to protect her who had so easily been led astray and was the reason for his downfall as well…Add some sons, family, neighbors, etc. and you’ve got a madhouse on your hands; with each member striving to be known, to please one another, G-d and self…
The Law or Torah is what keeps us honest, but the devil uses the same against us. He would have us in such a caged society, that no one would be free, and he has been masterfully successful in doing so…
The devil blames everyone but himself, and finds fault with G-d and G-d’s Law. Add the Atonement of Christ, with it’s forgiveness, mercy and grace, and you’ve got an incensed adversary with a million different accusations to make against the people of G-d and G-d, Himself, and who works in as many devilish ways to take away every freedom ever granted us because of the atonement and Way of G-d…
The Beast is not necessarily the enemy of G-d, but under the devil’s reign and subjection, must become so, and so you have the laws of man in opposition to the better Law of G-d that would guarantee freedoms people take for granted and lose because they trust in man.
The devil will punish every daughter who will not remain a whore for his pleasure, and castrate every man who may yet enjoy the bliss of union with any woman, especially his own other half, for the bitter envy in him.
Learn to play by the rules, be Jewish, obey the commandments, and you frustrate the devil and all mankind.
That is what the Sabbath as the beginning of our holy days was established as, a mark of G-d upon the man and family.
It is said, the devil sends his demons to peoples homes on the Sabbath day to see if they are at rest or going after whatever they please and working as usual…And if they are found to be at G-dly rest, the demons are angry yet kept in check and not permitted to harass the persons within the abode.
Nothing drives the devil more crazy than people obeying G-d’s word to the letter, nothing makes him happier than people living in mockery for every law G-d ever established to protect them from evil.
It is not evil to be sensually affected toward another. It is certainly not evil to be jealously guarding of another. It is not evil to imbibe in season and show forth the joy in your heart and love for one another and G-d. It is seven times divine to forgive offenses the bible calls for severe punishment for… But seven times damnable to encourage the same as a way contrary to the Way of G-d.
The Fall makes Saints of very few men.
But nothing could be easier than to live according to the commandments G-d gave Israel through Moses, unless men start to use the same Law to suit their own desires, which happened in Israel and in the United States, except it were a Purer form of obedience that we once enjoyed in the United States than anywhere else in the world, which birthed a pride hard to overcome. It wasn’t until we or the Way started to fail on a wide spread basis in the US that we began to realize the importance of the Jews apart from Christianity. It was the fall of Christians which humbled them, not their standing firm in Faith and Doctrine…But more and more the latter became acceptable to G-d as the former grew in pride, selfishness and hardness of heart…
Not that I would blame those who are lawfully devoted to G-d and separated from their brethren who are not so, but that it is a difficult affair to manage…And G-d certainly wished for all of “humanity” so-called to enjoin in the worship of their Creator in the Way He instructed His Chosen, that their might forever be a meeting point and an togetherness shared by as many as possible with as few as possible subject to being cast out, but as mankind “progressed” (i.e. backslid) Messiah’s words came true more oft than not and the people meant to inherit the blessings were hoodwinked right out of the kingdom and the enemy left in charge to judge as best seemed fit to fallen man, of which we know and suffer from their multitude of opinion and characteristic traits…
This psychosis used to be felt more intimately and with greater personal calamity. Thanks to a mostly Jewish intellectual/psychological movement, we suffer less today than in former times in this way, but more because of our dependence upon the same, if that makes any sense…
It all comes down to employ and self empowerment, which are two of the most wasteful and oppressively arrogant terms I’ve ever had the displeasure of learning the meaning of…Nevertheless, there is good and bad reaped from every situation and circumstance, and every man and woman, I believe would like to be the master of their own vessel and the reason for their own personal salvation…
There is no greater honour than to be employed and empowered in self by G-d. The oppressive perplexity being that one must often leave the Church in order to do so; and that, mostly because we have no Temple to serve and save us from hypocrisy in action, decision and motivation.
That is why G-d gave us Messiah who pointed us back in the direction of the Jews and Torah.
Messiah is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
But back to what I began expounding upon.
To a hunter, a hunting dog is an expense, and must be “primed” for the hunt.
In the same way, and adulteress or harlot must be “primed” for the hunt/work she is hired for.
Kings lost kingdoms because of adulteresses.
Most men and women learn too late that what they thought were a life mate was but an investment to he or she they married. This is a very old traditional family way of life…
Not a Family anyone should ever really wish to be a part of, but once made party to, must work out there own means and manner of participation.
Thus Messiah taught believers:
Luk 16:8-13 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true [riches]?
And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?
No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
It is by no means surprising to find that so many women would whore themselves from very early age rather than try to make it in the world lawfully, by education, work, and achievement lawful, when more often than not, doing so is a man or woman’s downfall and tragedy.
It is quite insane what society has convinced the world of, that anyone at all may achieve their dreams and must strike out on their own, and establish their mark upon the world in order to do so. Once enlightened, it is not very difficult to figure out how or why this scheme has been so successful, but what to do in either case, with the ensuing trouble is equally difficult to manage.
Being a whore is easy, except for dealing with the psychological ramifications. And if you’ve been a whore since you were young, it is less traumatic…like riding a bike, you just get back on when you fall off and the ride is sometimes enjoyable…and again, add drugs and alcohol and sooner than not she’d rather than not…or could care less one way or the other, as long as it pays…
Remember it was a whore G-d used to bring Israel into the land they were to inherit, and she and those with her were the only people spared in the city Jericho…All else was put to the sword.
G-d saw the faithful bride in her, doing what she had to do, and knew she deserved better. Who knows? Maybe G-d gave the Israelites the entire country on her account?
It’s not the whores fault, is what I’m saying, that is what is in her and what she is slave to…
And this is why G-d loves the United States and why the United States loves G-d.
The devil screws everything up and those who are most successful in navigating waters defiled by his schemes are they who are faithfully devoted to one another and He despite the worst of circumstances. They know most of their actions and decisions are damnable but they, like you, may be sure of a pardon in Messiah, at the Mercy Seat or by the Covenant everlasting promised to Abraham.
His mercy endureth forever.
Meanwhile, the whore is just a tad too insane and granted way too much power and authority.
It is the opposite of Father Jacob’s judgment she brandishes.
In giving Joseph a special garment and making a distinction between he and the brethren who were sinful and unworthy to receive the same, he was making an effort to establish Divine Order in the House of the L-RD before the authority slipped away from him, for he knew or sensed the house was no longer his, or that the elder brethren no longer wished to heed his authority and wanted to strike out on their own, no pun intended, though that is certainly what happened in every member’s case.
Again, the brethren were sick of Jacob’s fatherly/motherly ways. They did not care about divinity or order. Justice was important to them, but they were as foolish and selfish as any man could be at that point…and patience was not on their side…They only knew they had to work harder than Jacob seemed to or Joseph may have…and perhaps weren’t happy with the labour to which they were directed or called. Their pride was worldly, unworthy and utterly reprehensible but made sense to fallen carnal men such as they were or knew themselves to be.
Jacob did the right thing and obeyed the Spirit of the L-RD.
The brethren may have been to thank for protecting Jacob and thus making a way for him to have such an connection with the Holy but could not in that very labour enjoy the same understanding of the Spirit; having been separated for the good of the family by their estimation, (Joseph would later pardon them because it was all seen as G-d’s Will to save everyone.) only able to or permitted glimpses of Holiness in aging Jacob, who may have been more secretive and paranoid as result himself, making judgments contrary to their needs and judgment, but all the more necessary to please G-d.
The brethren used what they saw of this Holiness to the best of their ability and according to their own judgment, to sustain loyalty to one another, and protect the House and Realm of the L-RD. Everyone knew this was to thank for their protection, HaShem Shammah…
Likewise they were naturally given to weakness, hungry for tribute, recognition, which came to their hurt and misbegotten through the sale of Joseph or arranging the entire fiasco with or without Joseph’s knowledge.
All were probably happy at one time with Jacob, their Father and the blessing and miraculous life bestowed upon him and his family/people who were for signs and wonders, but as they grew and experimented, sometimes unlawfully, with their own realities, Jacob was no longer such a blessing to each member, and may have been considered more of an hindrance by more or less all the brethren, holding them back from what they wished for or desired. In them may have been the beginnings of, if not full-fledged cravings of a wilderness rabble…And, as at the very first transgression, it was envy that blew the whole scene up in everyone’s face.
Hence, while they imagined they protected Jacob and the House, they did all they could to jeopardize it and their own personal freedom from bondage, slavery, etc.
That is the only reason I say Joseph may have known of the plot to which he was getting “sold down the river” into…
They all wanted an easier lifestyle that seemed possible in Egypt, I believe. Maybe even Jacob?
As brilliant as any member of the tribe may be (and each certainly has a greatly exaggerated opinion of him or herself) our way, apart from G-d or any man’s way apart from G-d, leads to treachery, which man may justify even more so than holiness.
This required G-d through Jacob to make a distinction between Joseph and the brethren. Jacob saw as G-d sees the problem, at its inception, and tried to solve it while Joseph yet remained undefiled by the world. Jacob realized immediately that Joseph was the Prince of Egypt he would become anyway, but made him a Prince of Israel, right away, that he might have the opportunity to blossom and flourish at his own pace, in G-d’s granted wisdom, instead of his light burning too quickly perhaps as the rest of the brethren were fond of living…missing the point and pleasure of G-dliness altogether…
Mat 18:1 ¶ At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
