Enoch 99:11 Woe to you who spread evil to your neighbors, for you shall be slain in Hell.
The word which came unto Jeremiah from HaShem in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of HaShem, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink. Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites; And I brought them into the house of HaShem, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door: And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine. But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever: Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers. Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters; Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed: But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us. But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem. Then came the word of HaShem unto Jeremiah, saying, Thus saith HaShem of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith HaShem. The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father’s commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me. I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me. Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not hearkened unto me: Therefore thus saith HaShem God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered. And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith HaShem of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you: Therefore thus saith HaShem of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.
The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him. What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows? Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands, she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing, and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth HaShem, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Reality is Hand Crafted by the Creator to work in an ephemeral and fleeting manner yet with Foundations Everlasting and Promises Eternal unto all who overcome, as sure and steadfast as the willing debtor/servant of HaShem ought to be; knowing our reward is with us if we expect a reward at all, and the only thing that threatens our Purpose and Unity of Spiritual Thought and Reason is Lawlessness or Torahless-ness. An absence of God’s indwelling Spiritual Word and Presence of Mind or Awareness unfolding therein and thereby is what makes each member of a Body One United and in perfect Harmony with its Head, which is our Source of National Revelation.
Yet, from the earliest realization of Spirituality, the Body has been a treacherous, unwilling, seditious and spiteful representation of each member’s thoughtlessness wishing to be known for the very same awareness unworthy and unuseful.
Opinion, style and individual preference matters so little to our united effort to establish a people under One God it could not possibly bring any good to all for One and One for all, yet vanity and opinion seems to always win the day, from one to another, and as a merciless choice in self-preservation, destroys the same and otherness, by simple error and indifference that denial breeds among people’s failed efforts fallen, so that our longings work in us a hateful stubbornness that out wills even the grandest of Tyrant the world has ever suffered under collectively.
We so easily forget that forgetfulness is not a quality to be esteemed as an option to being mindful and conscientious, and therein prefer to be left alone to drift away into a corner self-fashioned, painted into and comfortable enough until someone else moves into an opposing corner and destroys our serenity in delusion.
Funny things happen in such a self-absorbed world as we inhabit but none are really worth the laugh nor the price of going astray after vanity, for those who do forsake mercy and wonder why when they seek a neighbor’s help or consideration the same can’t even speak or understand the language we are trying to relate our world-view from and with little success. Alienation is the most insidious enemy the people of any nation may ever suffer defeat because of and the long trail back to Unity and Brotherhood is or seems not worth the trouble, since it was all we could do with our first opportunities made to plot and carry out our own disaster and rescue therefrom, or rather comfortable failure therein, as long as there is an ass to suck from or horse-leech off of and plenty of wood for the fire of contention and we have the right to bear arms, we’ll blast open any door and forcefully enter any domicile to find what we need to get by, usually a victim set up or conned into a poor situation we don’t really care to solve but which will pave our way with stepping stones, and build up our homes with walls as sure to be breached as the commandment we have broken in order to survive in this context just revealed (Deuteronomy 32:8, 2 Nephi 28&29&30).
A Covenant selfishly coveted as if the people are the source of it, when they have since the Promise was made, broken the Same to their shame time after time, again and again; it is no wonder when the L-RD fulfills the Covenant/Promise from age to age and generation to generation, through whomever He may in spite of the world/Idumea that these few and chosen are the last nominees for noble prizes or Oscars, Golden Globes or even so much as a daily acknowledgement of their existence to receive any prize or reward and given their eternal inheritance, it is no wonder (Isaiah 64:4; 1 Corinthians 2:9).
The doomed society herein explained away will react like the offenders are they whom they despise and regard as unnecessary, cumbersome and unwanted, but rather claim that thanks to society’s shining works of love and charity, they’ve been saved, helped and aided in every way imaginable and are the ungrateful ones whom the world would be better off without. Psalm 30 explains why, wherefore and whom is really to blame for the calamities that plague any nation, society or community of peoples either well familiar with one another or entirely foreign in every way but one – they willingly and zealously play any obnoxious part in this ruse of the ages, and are under no obligation to acknowledge any wrong doing, error or crime taken part in, and absolutely refuse to thank anyone for anything they have received as reward for their poorly performed day’s man’s lot and portion stolen and illegitimately claimed by a night stalking beast of burden unaware of its being cumbersome in way or lifestyle unnecessary and treasonous of Covenant, not to mention the law/rule of its own creating (2 Peter 2:2; Alma 10:25-32). There is an unforgivable pride in some who consider enduring the reality God created and by another enjoyed yet in themselves completely annoyed by and unappreciative of and toward that has so destroyed the fellowship of like-minded souls all over the world, that Globalization may claim no other intent and purpose than criminal outreach programs dressed as otherwise and exceedingly more desperate than those they purport to be concerned with aiding, helping, liberating or captivating unto loss of freedoms any which speaks louder than an atom bomb dropped just for the sadistic thrill of seeing how much damage a destroyer may do.
When obtaining and maintaining employment creates such an unwanted reality on either hand and side of the coin tossed, it is best to toss all the coins away (Ezekiel 7:19) and bet rather upon the light of day proving your right to walk in the same among the living (Psalm 126:10; Isaiah 58:10) than to be among those condemned, walking in darkness at noonday (D & C 95:6), laboring to put coins in bags full of holes (Haggai 1:6 ).
Tehillim 34:21-22 Evil shall slay the resha’im (wicked); and they that hate the tzaddik (righteous) shall be desolate. HaShem redeemeth the nefesh (soul) of His avadim (servants), and none of them that take refuge in Him shall be condemned.
People too often forget that all simple joys and experiences are the best kinds of either and cost nothing (not even wisdom or knowledge) because simple minds best exemplify and embody the phenomenon and if made to feel inferior in thought or deed, are apt to destroy the same joys and experiences for One and all, though they obviously had no intention of doing anything wrong much less brilliant and worthy of acceptation.
Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth (1 Corinthians 8:1b).
A puffed up spirit, a proud heart or an ego in the clutches of its own mania needs to be brought low to know its blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Yet, lo and behold, more oft than otherwise, when a person is brought low through affliction, slavery, error or mistake of their own making and fault, there is a strange and alienating pride born in the heart of the offender which will not receive correction or reproval no matter what the gain may be for the experience humiliating or stripes due. Feeling oneself to have already suffered enough, why should any further punishment or bereavement be necessary?
A Holy Book full of examples as to why have not prevailed nor sufficed to prove the reasons yet and generations of suffering for the penalties of waywardness have done little to add to the lessons freely available wherever the Gospel is preached. Perhaps because fate may take away our ability to keep searching for the answers, or because a child’s guardians and especially an heir’s tutors and teachers failed to raise up a child in the Way in which he should choose so that that Way is completely lost to the senses and memory and paved over as an highway to hell only and while we’ve missed every sign post that told us in most often insulting ways that we missed the black flag that tells all Indy car drivers they need to check in at a pit stop for whatever reason the flag was flown and the opportunity blown for the win meanwhile just slipped away because we bought into the race notion and left behind the Way Holy and High, glad to be rid of Its encumbrances and limitations all men, women and children ought to know as of first importance, when at the last it costs them their first and only love affair with the Creation God created with all the necessary rests, stops and starts, dawns and evenings we should ever wish or need and enjoy being a part of.
Enoch 94:5 And hold (keep) my words in the thoughts of your hearts, and permit them not to be erased from your hearts; for I know that sinners will tempt men to evilly entreat wisdom so that no place may be found for her, and temptation will increase.
And if the foundations are destroyed what can the righteous do(Psalm 11:3)?
It is infinitely better to be insulted or injured by someone who cares for you than flattered by someone who hates you and intends the very worst for you.
A simple fact, yes? Yet, often the last one we take to heart and cherish as a pearl of wisdom may be valued above all gems made to be cherished and of great price indeed.
If association is enough to save all then it is also enough to curse, condemn or damn all.
To Whom dost thou belongest (1 Samuel 30:13)? It is the ONLY question in all of Creation that begs answering and it is also the most difficult to prove through action or inaction, labor or rest, duty or rebellion because it is so little encouraged in anywise in the world we know and live in, yet it is also the easiest Way available to One and all, with the lightest and most easy to carry of all burdens through and unto Kingdom Come.
Time is not something one may afford to purchase when one runs out of it…More wars arise just for the sake of destroying opportunities than ever may have for liberating people so as to afford them with the freedom to find time to create them or work works of righteousness by which they may redeem themselves or others.
“He who causes his friend to do a mitzvah is regarded by Scripture as though he had done it himself” (Talmud Sanhedrin 99b.)
To the wicked, all is a joke and experiment on just how much wickedness they may get away with while enjoying the liberty mistaken and security endangered which the righteous truly afford them with so as to feign to or actually wrest authority away from those with opportunity, ability and the absolute necessity of working out our mutual salvation otherwise impossible (Matthew 19:26; Philippians 2:12).
For the reward of making all things possible, the Savior has been subjected to every form of punishment, humiliation, harassment, limitation, mockery, insult and injury as only a din of devils could afford to make happen in opposition to life and the living’s right to live. He is made the permanent tail by all who once followed him and/or claimed to know of him and the One who sent him to bring salvation to mankind (Deuteronomy 15:6; 28:13, 44; Matthew 10:40-42; Luke 10:16; John 6:38-40; 8:29; 12:44-50; 13:20), A witness was all the House of Israel ever needed to be and was too much trouble for those who loved trouble otherwise minded paying as a tribute to One who made everything they may have ever enjoyed, held precious, loved and/or despised and hated to suffer the awareness of (Shema Yisrael or Sh’ma Yisrael; Hebrew: שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל; “Hear, [O] Israel”- Deuteronomy 6:4-9; 11:13-21; Numbers 15:37-41).
Most once religious people, with the exception of Jews only, threw off the burden of devotion and holiness or purity long ago with contempt for the same and all who remain of religious affection Holy Spirit guided and inspired. Unless it be the opposition’s religion of that which is neither here nor there and always manipulative to the point of injury and abandonment complete of every good and wise thought they may have once enjoyed vicariously if they ever did at all none will agree on anything of first and last commandment worth keeping.
Muckrackers and mutants so mutilate the reality of others with little or zero consideration for the sacred space and soul worth of others, they encourage a pig pen, stinkhole reality for all to fall into and if any dare avoid wisely their common fate in what they not only enjoy but revel in as only demon-possessed former freemen and women dedicated to reality virtual and vanity sinful lusted for strictly and had for the price of any poison a slave may afford when well paid for by employment mostly unnecessary unless the world is forced into a constant state of upheaval and accidental tourism replete with as many mishaps as may befall a world at war with its own captives taken from the womb, at once enlisted or baptized (Moroni 8) and forced into holes and dens otherwise made to hide cowardly beasts of prey and scavengers of the Zoo-ish (non-Jewish) population with little similarity to mankind or beings fashioned in the image of God with none attributes civilized or even polite unless in an entirely feigned and imaginary context best when once upon a time limited to stage and screen only and strictly; now available (for a price) in every domicile device riddled and ransacked for (Luke 11:21-23), by and of the people scattered and gathered as huddled masses preferring classes to differentiate rather than synagogues to segregate and accentuate a necessary difference in worship of a people converted unto HaShem who otherwise are given to racism, hatred, corruption and senseless alienation for reasons man-made and perpetuated as more necessary than air to breathe or Spirit to enlighten and uplift. (Genesis 6:3; Luke 7:4-5; John 4:22; 2 Nephi 26:11).
Indolence and impudence are the styles of the day and if you don’t fall into either category you are marked as an unbeliever or upstart.
Man and mercy are going to become rarer than animals once threatened with extinction but now overrunning parts of the globe and altogether destroying their own habitations out of self-loathing and longing for a fair sport or pastime to enjoy. Haters played politically correct games just long enough to destroy all politics and then abandon ships sold by the hostesses thereof for pennies the portion and despised as abortion dependent husbands of a family so utterly dysfunctional, no member thereof does recognize what function or part they may or ought to play as a homeless family has no heritage but Islam which of course is the anti-wilderness corporate financed spirituality of the opposition, born not in tribulation or fiery furnace but in a deserted country of indifference to all things above (James 1:17). Many may have once worshiped the heavenly host, but these despise anything that shines with light and feels loving affection and aspires to dutiful devotions daily.
The State of our Union depends upon this: That We all realize that we are no different than Abraham when God called him out and away from his people and nation to be separated and blessed for the obedience any may and must show to our Creator for the gift of existence (Isaiah 52; Ezekiel 11:16-21; 20:33-44; Zephaniah 3:7-20; Zechariah 10; 2 Corinthians 6:17-18; Alma 5:57-62).
“Eventually after much stumbling on Abraham’s part, the child of promise – the child of the Covenant – was born, and God’s faithfulness to His sometimes-wavering servant was revealed…The field of the controversy between Christ and Satan – the field on which the plan of redemption is wrought out – is the lesson book of the universe. Because Abraham had shown a lack of faith in God’s promises, Satan had accused him before the angels and before God of having failed to comply with the conditions of the covenant, and as unworthy of its blessings. God desired to prove the loyalty of His servant before all heaven, to demonstrate that nothing less than perfect obedience can be accepted, and to open more fully before them the plan of salvation.” ~Ellen White
