1Cr 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Pro 22:1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
Ecc 7:1 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.
Isa 48:9 For my name’s sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off.
The virtues of family and home matter more to a nation’s prosperity, welfare and security than do the rewards of schooling, education and government.
Simplicity of need, want and pastime assure lasting worth, health and the enjoyment of life itself for generations; and such all stem from simple Torah observance.
If inclusion and equality of all nations, creeds, races and sexes is to be the Point, the Gospel and Torah must be the Way/Initiative. After all, our striving and straying in the world were born of belief in and talents granted and invested by the One G-d. The further we’ve strayed from the Truth in the same, the more strained and tested we’ve been, but that does not change G-d nor the Way in which creation came to be,
2 Nephi 25:23 For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to G-d; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.
Delusion and fancy for their entire propensity to amuse and ability to assuage our guilt, suffering and the consequences of apostasy we must endure still reduce our collective worth and nullify all likelihood of achieving the promises set forth in our nation’s constitution without returning to the One G-d. On the other hand, may be instantly realized, reborn and made possible in returning though much be sacrificed of self.
The difference being that in returning one is saved and find’s self fulfillment eventual, while not doing so assures the eventual opposite and the loss and destruction of self; body and soul.
Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
When our nation regarded family and home as sacred and essential, we progressed and prospered, advanced and obtained blessings from blessings, going from grace to grace, strength to strength; from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people, always gaining in the Way and losing otherwise, so that there was a balance between the two, or more of one than another in direct proportion to however much we strayed or continued faithful…And when we strayed much, the L-RD forgave much.
In time, we forgot how precarious our situation is and how much we owe to His mercy and forbearance.
“I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; and forgettest the L-rd thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor? The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail. But I am the L-RD thy G-d, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The L-RD of hosts is his name.” (Isaiah 51:12-15)
Again, the more we progressed and prospered the less essential we treated home and family; but then, since the Advent, either have been precarious institutions to say the least! And we often have had to flee from one to find and establish either. And so what has happened to our ability to be part of any cohesive group has been tried and tested as though in the furnace of affliction time and again, in order that we might eventually birth a nation and society in which either might retain some worth or meaning in our lives, hearts, deeds and regard for one another.
We have had to escape an illusionary nation of dastards born more dead than alive to do so, and advancing or existing in the midst of their ruins and artifacts is hell and high water some days.
These were born on the day they expired.
Luk 12:16-20 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
But G-d said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward G-d.
What do you think a nation of such regretful buggers might do and establish in the name of survival of the fittest? And more, what kind of bloody hell might they need to perpetuate to sustain such an ill-met fate? More to be feared; what might they yet do after having done so for so long? 2000 years and counting?
I met a lady the other day who professed to be a Christian yet did not believe in Jesus or the gospel? How strange! I have met and agreed with many such Jews, but this was the first instance of a Christian claiming it! She said she believed in Christ but that He hasn’t come yet or else the world would not be hell it is.
Which doesn’t make any sense to me, but it was an interesting point she was arguing; that most of the gospel had been fabricated or just made up…I told her Jews believe that Messiah always is, was and shall be a part of creation dwelling in our midst in the form of Torah and its consequences, and that Messiah were, is and shall be He who fulfilled the same from age to age, generation to generation in a kingdom and world without end, both in Himself and those who belong to Him, in our deeds, actions and thoughts the fulfillment of our vows to G-d, commandments heeded and mitzvos merited, so making of us, whether we be dead in Messiah or alive, as lively stones turned whithersoever the Master will to stand in the breach, cornerstone the edifice, make up the wall, be hurled at the enemy, or struck to bring forth water unto salvation or fire unto refinement. As the apostle Paul wished his followers to be, or rather wishing them to be followers of Moschiach, who was and is and yet shall be, born from one moment to another in whosoever He wills to act or to do or not.
And thus I put the question to her- Is it possible that Messiah came and fulfilled the Torah and then came again and fulfilled the Gospel or Renewed Covenant’s demands and has done so in every age and generation to varying degrees of success or failure, being crucified many times in as many ways, and we with Him?
Hence the holocaust, crusades, Civil War, WW, etc; All to be denied as a matter of course, or wayward solution?
Has this not always been the Way for Jews and this one Christian who choose not to profess Christ and yet do endeavor to keep the law and faith he taught and lived by unto perfection and fulfillment? Are we not all pricks in the flesh or bricks in the wall? Who were all only given Life in the traditions we kept inasmuch as they sprang from the same Source?
Mar 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, G-d.
Gal 4:1-9 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
But when the fulness of the time was come, G-d sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
And because ye are sons, G-d hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of G-d through Christ.
Howbeit then, when ye knew not G-d, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.
But now, after that ye have known G-d, or rather are known of G-d, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
Act 6:2-4 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of G-d, and serve tables.
Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
Mic 5:5 And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.
And further, might not the end result and boon of our combined waywardness be the emptying of the Gospel and its literal meaning in our lives so that we do much prefer our own take on things or our own interpretation to what may be Messiah’s and G-d’s Will for us?
Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the L-RD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Order from Chaos is the L-RD’s Business.
Psa 118:23 This is the L-RD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
I ask you now, may not a city in ruins whose members are all able be more functional and desirable than one in perfect condition whose members are all broken and at one another’s throats?
Has this not always been the state of affairs for Jews who believe in one without the other or Christians who do likewise but in reverse order, and the result what they have in either case built upon one or the other?
Neither Faith being in error necessarily but both missing an essential something.
Luk 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Is it either our or Messiah’s right to judge when we or he does not do what the Law says?
G-d may not accept anything less than perfect obedience. All they that have not obeyed in the least and even rebelled in the worst ways imaginable may be forgiven and return to G-d.
Why is it that in doing so or not people feel they have the right to begrudge he who made the Way an everlasting one, if he stumble or sin in the least word or deed, even in jest, or fail to live up to our expectations, as foundationless and utterly void of authority as they are, and not regard he who forgave our worst, regarding them with perfect forgiveness and love, going so far as to atone for the same everlastingly?
Psa 62:4 They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly.
Isa 65:3a A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face;
Even so, he may never have fulfilled the Torah nor strove with the Renewed Covenant and Spirit if he had not been hated and crucified by they who professed to live by the same Law and love the same G-d unto their own undoing and damnation.
There is a fine line between love and hate, damnation and redemption, perceived failure or success, etc.
So, I come to realize where this woman erred or succeeds is where others also have.
Hsa 14:2 Take with you words, and turn to the L-RD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.
She stood before me justified and self assured, though she claimed the gospel to be a fabrication!
Mat 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Jhn 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto G-d, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
When one has crossed a line or point of no return, one learns immediately and painfully the cost, or what one may have missed or taken for granted in life and now it is all that matters though it be no longer one’s own to claim nor boast of and in.
NOW patience must have her perfect work and we may be anything but patient! Nevertheless, this is when home and family are truly formed and are given meaning and traditional value, making of either sacred ground which the Law and the keepers or enforcers of it must regard as essential to a nation’s welfare and security social.
If banks in any such nation are to be bailed out at all, it is to build up or rebuild and protect nothing but this restoration of a Way of Life.
If we are teaching our children that the point is to break away from home and family and make a way in the world, why after so many generations of doing so are we not a nation of Messiahs? And why when we were held back and obligated to the same were we said to be of an age golden?
Jer 6:29 The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.
We’ve evidentially missed the point, if there ever was one?
Extremity of endeavor never taught us much about what is sacred nor honourable in what is familiar and fashioned to be just that, of much importance, in earnest.
Psa 62:9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
Mat 18:2-3 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.
What is sacred and honourable must teach us about what is important about our familiars.
Intention will and must lead us to a higher ground.
Psa 61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
When we do otherwise we end up in Winterville, where what’s tragic happens.
There is a certain depravity in the USA that is so evil that I believe it has its genesis in Genesis and Israel’s oldest foe, Shechem; a vile man and idol worshipper who raped the daughter of Israel and kept her like an animal in a cage after doing so. It is my intuition and life experience, where I’ve been and what I’ve known, that tells me these are the true origins of our modern day Santa Claus Christmas Culture. As certain sages and Torah students have reasoned Shechem may have been established through a confederacy of various clans. Probably the first origins of the KKK which got its start at the time Psalm 83 were penned.
The worst feeling I get about this is that Simeon and Levi may be part of that which they once violently did away with.
The problem is pride in name and delusion. Not excusing him in the least, but Shechem was just a boy used to getting what he wanted, as all privileged children may. However, being a rapist, lacking at the core the spiritual affectation of a child of Israel.
Having no share in the inheritance of the sons of G-d, he sought only to defile Israel through his only daughter; though he could not kill her innate virtue.
Santa’s aim is not to reward children every 25th of Dec. but to tempt the sons of men and lead them to the slaughterhouse.
Santa like Shechem is an agent of the evil one or inclination, hungering for the rewards of unrighteousness.
“For a society’s own self-protection such atrocities can never be tolerated or left unpunished. The Shechemites were all guilty of similar behaviour and deserving of death.” ~Etz Hayim Commentary.
Yet, in the US and abroad, being part of the Pagan Christmas Cult is the key to worldly success and riches.
Mothers agree to sacrifice their children upon the altar of delusion that is an evergreen tree cut out of the forest in the prime of its life, brought presents, etc., but I don’t want to waste the reader’s time with the obvious.
The Law demands of a donkey its’own neck for the redemption of a lamb.
Christ, the Lamb of G-d laid down His own life to save necks, and set an example of Israel’s righteousness before all the nations; delivering by righteous intention and action or inaction, G-d’s flock.
Santa and Shechem, require no more than the right to rape mother’s, delude children in mockery and enslaved men as dogs, all to produce a “joy” more like lechery than happiness, more devilish than angelic. The only thing that makes any of it redeeming is the Christ child who knowing nothing of evil, buys the whole thing as an angel might unaware, and thus do all the lights in the Xmas tree burn and go out together from age to age, generation to generation.
But whom do we really betray and injure but ourselves and our G-d.
2Cr 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of G-d in him.
And so I say, it must be that the enemies of G-d and Christ love this festival out of pure hate for G-d and Christ.
Nevertheless, it is born in most out of a misunderstanding error and fear rather than out of any real love or hate, in its purest, most creative or destructive manifestation.
But yea, those who celebrate it are antichrist, anti Israel, anti G-d, anti covenant, anti-renewed covenant, anti life, rebirth and renewal; if ignorantly so.
Luk 5:36-39 And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.
And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.
But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.
No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.
And why? They are trapped in their wickedness.
1Cr 10:19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to G-d: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
Ye cannot drink the cup of the L-rd, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the L-rd’s table, and of the table of devils.
Kid-napping Dinah, converting her to paganism, ruining the womb of future Israel, destroying her offspring, demanding she give life to abominations, mutants, and bastards, is the intent of the evil inclination in all of mankind.
It is the pride and fear of worldly, carnal man that his offspring may be cut off. That his “fish” may not swim. That his seed may not continue.
But Dinah, as a daughter of Israel is not begotten as a daughter of other men may be, nor were Israel’s sons as others may have been, nor any real descendant of Abraham whose seed is engendered spiritually, and whose children are raised supernaturally, and outnumber the stars of heaven.
The crime of Christmas is unbelief; in not believing that G-d may and did raise anyone from the dead; that there is no resurrection; no world to come, no reward for the righteous. And that people must get all they can while they may here on earth, immediately gratified or else; that men must scheme and betray and war and hate in order to survive as dumb beasts and not enjoy godliness as matter of lineage and heritage.
It is pride of self that wills any man to love or hate and therefore it is never pure nor effectual in nature, but base and wicked. It is not mature in nature or ideation, but is convinced in delusion and brought forth by mistake unto something that must rely on lawlessness and violence in order to be.
1Ti 5:6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.
Thus even in success, is not and on some level feels its own futility most painfully, knowing no future reward is due for its sufferings.
A Jew, reborn in Messiah, adopted by Abraham, a son of G-d and Israel knows what to do with this brokenness, this raped individual, this broken cistern, this busted wineskin, and because of Paul, an apostle unto the gentiles, they also ought to know and are without excuse. We are made whole by covenant renewal and justified in agreement, saved by performance of Torah instructed action and inclination. For what did Christ give his life for but for reconciliation, that ALL men might be saved.
For as the heart of Jacob was grieved by the action Simeon and Levi took, it must be assumed that the heart of G-d is grieved when any of His creatures, great or small choose evil, rebellion and destruction in pride.
I lost my home because I was a threat to Shechemite business and confederacy. To US lawlessness enforced and dependent upon and resultant in the fleeing of Zion, scattering of lambs, whose time has come to return.
I lost my home because I wished to be a Jew; to practice Judaism; to be no more than a brother, uncle, friend and neighbor in my neighborhood. I had no idea I had settled in modern day Shechem!
The hand that rocks the cradle decides what delusions the babe may inherit.
Nevertheless, it was all the L-RD’s doing, using both friend and foe, to bring to pass His plan and establish His people in the New Izrael that the USA was always meant to become.
To reverse the curse of New England, the Jews of America have had to build a Tower of Babel with the opposite intent of Nimrod, by making the same a son of G-d; establishing something so absurd and anti-climactic, its very lifeblood be failure and despair, and in that much found success. 1 Corinthians 1:25-29
But when the L-RD agrees to build the House it is because our waywardness has been turned to obedience or a desire to be so and our indignity into zealous ardor; our lawless intent has been corrected yet having no direction, purpose or incentive must be brought to remembrance, and it is not the sort of remembrance we enjoy, but is the sort that saves. Romans 6.
2Cr 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
We may be ready to return and to be servants but there is nowhere to do so, or wherever we are, foundations, edifices, obligations, and societal demands are counterproductive and selfish though we be overwhelmed with the mess of our overproduction.
Hag 1:9 Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the L-RD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
Or because the Living Temple of G-d have been ignoring His people and His commandments and are unwilling to perform mitzvot in earnest. Too troubled with our own cunning survival to even heed much less hear Righteousness.
And so, the US has subsisted by surrounding saviours, prophets and saints with spots, blemishes and aints for many generations.
And thus, from generation to generation leave Y’shua praying a prayer he ought not have to pray:
Psa 69:6 Let not them that wait on thee, O L-rd GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O G-d of Israel.
And the L-RD has heard his servants prayer from age to age…nevertheless the price is a bitter one and one that has not escaped the L-RD’s notice as surely nothing ever does, has or will, who above all else desires His servant’s vindication.
For those who shall be destroyed shall speak unto them out of the ground, and their speech shall be low out of the dust, and their voice shall be as one that hath a familiar spirit; for the L-rd G-d will give unto him power, that he may whisper concerning them, even as it were out of the ground; and their speech shall whisper out of the dust..
Thus saith the L-RD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all.
Therefore thus saith the L-rd GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:
Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.
