Shabbat Shekalim / שבת שקלים
Shabbat Shekalim (“Sabbath [of] shekels” שבת שקלים) read in preparation for Purim, requests each adult male Jew contribute half of a Biblical shekel for the upkeep of the Tent of Meeting. The Torah portion Exodus 30:11-16 is read. This Shabbat takes place on the Shabbat before the 1st of the Hebrew calendar month of Adar, or on the 1st of Adar itself if it falls on Shabbat. In leap years on the Hebrew calendar, when there are two months of Adar, Shabbat Shekalim is on the Shabbat before the 1st of Adar II (or on the 1st of Adar II itself if it is Shabbat).
Shabbat Shekalim begins at sundown on Fri, 04 March 2016. 24 Adar I 5776.
Shabbat Sheqalim recalls the census taken in the wilderness, described in Exodus 30:11-16, which is the maftir portion. The people are to donate a half-shekel (a silver coin) as a tax to provide for the maintenance of the Tent of Meeting and its service, and the coins are counted instead of the people.
There are many lessons to be learned from this brief passage. The fact that both rich and poor contribute the same amount reminds us that both rich and poor are equally valued in the eyes of the Divine. The fact that we count coins instead of people reminds us that people are not to be thought of as mere numbers on a ledger. The fact that the census contributions are used to maintain the Tent of Meeting reminds us of the importance of contributing to the upkeep of the synagogue (a favorite theme for rabbis!).
On Shabbat Sheqalim, we also read a haftarah portion from II Kings 11:17-12:17, which also makes reference to the census money and the use of it for Temple maintenance (see II Kings 12:5-6).
Shabbat Sheqalim occurs on the Rosh Chodesh of the month before the month of Nissan (that is, the Rosh Chodesh of Adar or Adar II in leap years), or on the last Shabbat before that Rosh Chodesh. Nissan is the month when Pesach (Passover) occurs. Sheqalim is read at this time because, according to tradition, the half-shekel census was taken on the first of Nissan, and the reading is meant to be a reminder of the upcoming census.
Whilst the madness and mayhem of the current battle for an Oval Office that any of the contenders running would only defile the space of and bring shame and disgrace to, We The People ought to set our sights on a Cause that will actually “Make America Great Again” and restore our Homeland for our soldiers, sons and daughters, saints and martyrs who have been protecting and fighting, dying, working, praying and doing whatever their hands have found to do with all diligence and devotion unasked for and unrewarded by an ungrateful nation of leeches who never give anything to Her at all and expect all but Her kitchen sink from for absolutely nothing in return!
A very real and effectual census and contribution collection might instantly restore the Commonwealth to Glory Day Celebration and Emancipate We The People, One and all from the cost of vanity and corruption of four ages (generations) running on empty, now in its’ fifth, making all progress backward she may in denial of all that may be real and needed, right and equitable, just and true in a world and place aching to be made new.
Not to sweep anything under a carpet or hide crimes and trespasses, but to turn therefrom and renew our Dedication to both God and man, who will Himself be our Wall of protecting Grace and Strength which no Terror or Tyrant, Enemy or Oppressor may break through and steal, despoil, defile, nor harm or hurt anything within our Sacred Nation One, United in Covenant Restoration known, felt, heard, and seen in Its authenticity gloriously brought to life by our willing zeal and amen to let it be!
While the Wall of absurdities that the Oscar seekers and promotion greedy politicos and investors run willy-nilly chasing each other and their own tails provides for those who take whatever opportunity the L-RD provides to build on foundations everlasting and indestructible, it is not a Wall anyone may trust in nor hide behind. The members that make up this wall are as sitting ducks upon the waters, fish in a barrel, fowlers caught in their own net and workers of iniquity hog tied up in the work of their own hands. It is embarrassing for them but it is wonderful for We The People who may and must use the opportunity to build up and restore Zion in America, which is the true Temple built without hands, upon a Rock solid Foundation that will never be moved nor may anything built thereon be destroyed nor anyone invested therein suffer loss from, nor have to worry about escaping through flames of otherwise no way out.
And no real harm having befallen the righteous, nor loss that isn’t or may not be counted gain has by any means led We The People astray. We’ve been living in this reality for many generations now and We know very well how it works to our advantage and disadvantage at times. But we are no fools. Mind you I speak concerning the righteous solely, whom I shall reveal by the end of this entry, God willing (Jacob 4:18).
There is a destroying betrayer, and treacherous one to be troubled with and by but, at least, we can claim with integrity we don’t represent the same and may reverse the damage done our Beautiful Nation by a simple change of intent or renewal of vows and dedication to a better nation than the one we leave behind with no sorrow, scorn nor even neglect on our part in our mutual effort to save what may be saved and assuage what fears and pains we may in those who are of a fact unavoidably dying out in the wilderness they created and ran head long into of their own choice free and equal.
There exists no reason to weep and mourn even as these may in the very act of perishing find a better reward awaits them in the world to come. And certainly no fear of perishing would be our fault or laid to our blame if we are found doing all we may to save and make better choices available to generations to come, and so find, in a very brief passage of the same, We The People, may indeed become a delightsome people in Whom the L-RD may take great pleasure in blessing with a multiplicity of blessings and restore us to our true and divine heritage and Way of Life, Liberty and Happiness for One as for all therewith and therein.
Jonah 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
As this is true, we need not feel badly for the trespasser or condemned, but may actually reverse the effects to some extent and show mercy to those who don’t deserve any, by making something better and restoring what they were in their foolishness seeking to destroy by way of involvement unnecessary and certainly unwanted.
Our Government was not established to be torn down, dismantled and roasted over a fool’s bonfire unto no-gods or worse, demons and devils.
We may have found that to a dangerous extent our even entertaining the above-mentioned players with our even deviously granted attention has brought near agents and powers that are difficult to deal with unarm (Helaman 13:37), and placate or satisfy the demands of. But therein is the clause and out found. There is no place in our Constitution much less our Holy Writ which obligates us to make or keep any promises or agreements made with our enemy.
This, of course, may upset many unwise suitors of Our Lady Liberty, but She is in nowise unwise if We The People remember, keep and restore our virtuous dedication to Her and our America the Beautiful. By small means does the L-RD bring to pass great and wonderful works and deeds in righteousness, and, as I say, the enemy is confounded in his very approach dishonest and empty, void of merit or meaning. A simple “no” is enough to null and disappoint the wedding guests, bride, and groom; and One and all may return to their God given helpmates and destiny a thousandfold more worth living, fighting and dying for than a vomit show of vanity and its leavings disgusting upon the palate which is the bitter aftertaste of a grievous error in judgment. Whistle through your teeth and spit, it is yet alright. Just get the taste out of your mouth and do not return to the vomit ever again. The sow will of its own loneliness and bitterness, drag itself out of its mire eventually and then we may be there to bathe her but certainly not claim marriage duties part of any future arrangement or relationship, visitation rights, and so forth. I know, I Am ALL Heart! You will thank me at the last!
God may make life sweet again even if it may be bitterly so for a season yet.The Promise of a future reward and kingdom is all We need to get by and get on with business as divinely directed and protected. Let each man carry his sword upon his thigh and his hammer in his other hand until the work is finished, and then we shall all have a Home and none will be homeless, nor blindly selfishly seeking to secure such for himself, unless he means to share it with all, strangers and foreigners included and involved in the L-RD, and thus, all things are possible and not only so but a matter of Covenant and Commandment Everlasting.
Leviticus 24:22; Exodus 12:49; Numbers 9:14; 15:15-16, 29 and result – Daniel 11:32.
Judge for yourself what is right and wrong and never again choose the folly that brought loss of integrity and disgrace upon people who ought to know better and if they didn’t should not feel so badly that they would not at once seek restoration, forgiveness and a part of something far better than a piece of the pie American, so to speak, but a rising generation fed and that quite well on American Cake. The proof is never in the pudding nor mess but in avoidance thereof altogether for the batter is better with no need to be afraid of licking the spoon. And everyone, particularly the poor, oppressed, destitute, outcast and needy, broken hearted ones, ought to consider themselves the honored guests of the L-RD of the Saboath.
I must now admit that though being a source of revelation from on High is a wonderful thing and experience to be coveted quite rightly, it is best when shared and difficult if not unenjoyable for one man or group or people, though they be prophets or even angels, to continue the work of, and it is work that is very difficult, taxing and exhausting, both physically and spiritually, emotionally and psychically. Thorns sent to remind me of my duty and of the strictness of the Way are a constant source of aggravation, but more to be grateful for than all the false praise and lauding the world may throw at God and Christ, Jews and believers the world over. It is not all sitting upon a cloud or in a secluded wilderness refuge or palace setting with royals all about and attendants answering beckoning calls with zeal and dedication.
It is troublesome, difficult toiling and takes a lot of dedication, focus, and avoidance of anything that would lead astray and make the work impure or erring.
And though I don’t claim to be perfect, the Source at work in me is and He demands much more than I ever imagined a body could endure, live with and through. The rewards are indeed worth it and that mostly because I may share and work with others who are divinely inspired, even if only to be as pricks and thorns in my side. Which is or has been a uniquely American Phenomenon shared with the world quite liberally since Y2K. All things serve God and all those who Love God work together for the good of One and all and the affect is as showers in due season upon a thirsty and fertile country wherein even the barren may rejoice in the hope of raising godly offspring unto exaltation.
I take no pleasure in insulting anyone or in even criticizing that which deserves rebukes and stripes. There are those who do and I warn others so that they will not fall into their hands and I pray the L-RD bring to pass the Day wherein even all the wicked will turn to Him and accept the yoke they know whether they were born with a desire to serve and uplift, they themselves will be satisfied with the work their hands shall find to do and the portion of their cup, which may have been destined to be the dregs of the L-RD’s wrath may change and become Life Giving waters that may restore and rebirth the most lost and miserable of souls in an instant, changing their inner man, as only the Holy Spirit may into a completely different person, whose future is to live and glory in serving His Creator by escaping the bands, shackles and fetters of iron that otherwise hold all the wicked of the world captive and confine their abilities to a very small scope and realm of vital or deadly precise action, care and nurture, cut and suture, instead of capture and torture to alleviate their own sufferings in what is otherwise hell to them within and without.
But now, far from the digression, back to the somewhat difficult part of my duty and work. It is unfortunate that many in seeking to be part of this world’s society wayward have failed to prove that education and training, such as many may have sought out and accrued both wages and experience of over the years and which they consider worthwhile and essential to their employment and success as members of the same society, in many cases all but obliterates any and all common sense we may otherwise be naturally blessed with and enjoy as One in the truest most effective sort of Unity a People may arrive at and rejoice in together, having all things in common and in equity judging righteous judgment daily so as not to cause a schism in the body, whether religious, politic, sinful or nobly angelic in congregational or colonial and even, or especially so, in a chaotic mixed multitude form. Aleinu.
To the surprise of many and to the ‘no shit’ of many more, the greater part of America and the world for that matter, for all its boastful pride and vain show, ought to be or should be destroyed in an all-consuming, never-ending or satisfied blaze of eternal hellfire’s wrath, with all the inhabitants thereof as fuel. If it were not for the righteous who are now alive and within Her borders, no doubt, that is precisely what would happen, and, in an instant, rid the world of all that is wrong with the same and hopefully start a chain reaction throughout the States and world associated and occupied with what probably amounts to no worse or graver sins than have taken place in many a haunt of hell’s denizens and their captives unfortunate and miserable as our united ability to administer so much as a merciful suggestion in truth, light, brotherhood and holy or righteous consideration for the well-being and sanctity of souls hanging over the abyss, inspiring One as all to react in fear and misgivings, what eagerly awaits to consume all who may ‘fall through the cracks,’ perish and be lost forever and so would sadly be no real change in how the majority of the same have spent their days of probation in militant ignorant rebellion, or lazy idolatrous, isolative cowardice and stupid, unregenerate immoral rottenness of an unfathomable degree and depth of absurd treachery and self-loathing fraught with destructive tendencies run wild as a caged beast may be, who neither long for nor desire to be set free from captivity and Egypt’s fleshpots custom made for the selfish and covetous disturbingly vain members of the cult of personality none too impressive in the long run and assuredly death-cultish with no escape from the rather short, fast and furious run you may participate in for no reward worth having nor trophy worth taking homeless which fame may bring to any and all soulless seekers of the same no name dame’s claim.
Proverbs 22:1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold.
Every day I’d rather have no awareness of the above-mentioned society so-called whatsoever, which explains its grand success in ensuring the unawares! but I would never excuse or forgive myself for being part of, much less a willing active agent in search of the lowest measure for measure of depravity and carnal disgust a moral agent with an awareness of right and wrong could and would never in good faith tolerate for a season in a hellish experiment gone woefully well for all those who glory in misery’s mire whose permanent address and vacation spot most find themselves at and upon and actually seem to enjoy (I shudder at the thought!) their role and part in, ever willing to sink to new depths of disgrace, I can’t, for the Life of me even begin to understand and do not wish to acknowledge on a day to day basis. It is hard facing the world without eyes without looking!
Yochanan 9:41 Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach said to them, If you were ivrim (blind men), you would not have chet (sin), but now vi-bahlt (since) you say, We see, the chet (sin-guilt) of you remains.
As they say, when you look into the abyss the abyss looks into you…
I praise my God! Yea, my gracious, all-knowing, all-powerful God that I have survived the onslaught of attempts by the enemy to further disable and destroy my body, soul and mind in all places I have been blessed as a fellow traveler walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and that, what’s more, has brought me through it all as a victorious conqueror of all my foes and enemies many and all too willing on the whole! An enemy who is no friend to any and verily the enemy of all!
3 Nephi 21:9-10 For in that day, for my sake, shall the Father work a work, which shall be a great and a marvelous work among them; and there shall be among them those who will not believe it, although a man shall declare it unto them. But behold, the life of my servant shall be in my hand; therefore, they shall not hurt him, although he shall be marred because of them. Yet I will heal him, for I will show unto them that my wisdom is greater than the cunning of the devil.
“But Satan, the enemy of all that is good, thought to himself, ‘God has promised salvation to Adam [man] by covenant, and He promised that He would deliver nim from all the hardships that have befallen him, but God has not promised me by covenant, and will not deliver me out of my hardships. He has promised Adam [man] that He should make him and his descendants live in the kingdom that I once lived in. I will kill Adam [man]. The earth shall be rid of him. The earth shall be left to me alone. When he is dead he will not have any descendants left to inherit the kingdom and it will remain my own realm. God will then be wanting me, and He will restore it to me and my hosts.’ And so Satan never stopped trying to destroy Adam and Eve [man and woman].” From the Books of Adam and Eve.
And further, that I hold the same in check until God shall see fit to deliver me and I pray many others with me out of his snares and traps of captivity unto our shared Liberty Triumphant!
Psalm 47:1 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
Psalm 106:47 Save us, O L-rd our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy Holy Name, and to triumph in Thy praise.
2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Psalm 119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
And so it is not so much the Law that grants Liberty as the Spirit of the L-RD, which makes people whenever and wherever they may be made free thereby want and desire to fulfill the Law when they have the Freedom to do so that truly where the Spirit of the L-RD is there is Liberty and we are free to live as Jews – keeping festival, holy days and all commandments every day, which is truly L’chaim! to those who know what life is all about and Who to thank for the Free Gift!
Notwithstanding the good news proclaimed above there are many who do and will reject Him, and for what reasons it seems to me, entirely insensible, if not madness outright very hateful.
2 Nephi 26:10-11 And when these things have passed away a speedy destruction cometh unto my people; for, notwithstanding the pains of my soul, I have seen it; wherefore, I know that it shall come to pass; and they sell themselves for naught; for, for the reward of their pride and their foolishness they shall reap destruction; for because they yield unto the devil and choose works of darkness rather than light, therefore, they must go down to hell. For the Spirit of HaShem will not always strive with man. And when the Spirit ceaseth to strive with man then cometh speedy destruction, and this grieveth my soul.
Unwisdom and her band of merry clod-hoppers will find a way to turn every blessing into a curse, even such wisdom as “Where the Spirit of HaShem is, there is Liberty,” by treating the same presumptuously as she may with every good gift that comes from above, instead keeping multitudes down in ignorance and thinking themselves to be wise they become fools, fulfilling.
Kehillah in Rome 1:22 Claiming to be chachamim (wise ones), they became kesilim (fools).
Each spirit/soul made flesh must prove for itself what is and is not Liberty and the vast difference between Liberty and Freedom.
But many a presumptuous soul takes everything for granted and feels himself entitled (thinking like Satan) to the entire world, which in truth, has been given to the Children of Abraham exclusively through Joshua’s conquest of the Promised Land, which the L-RD basically gift wrapped and dropped in their hands, and so they entirely miss the mark and gift they may have shared with a chosen people, and then Satan further divides them by being the dumbass he is and pits one people against another and everyone together he incites to hate the Jews who must be to blame since they don’t follow along with the rebellious, broken and bankrupt reality Gentiles perpetuate through feigned charity and labor absurd.
2 Nephi 28:19-26 For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they be stirred up to anger, and perish; For behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good. And others will he pacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell. And behold, others he flattereth away, and telleth them there is no hell; and he saith unto them: I am no devil, for there is none—and thus he whispereth in their ears until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance. Yea, they are grasped with death, and hell; and death, and hell, and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith must stand before the throne of God, and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment. Therefore, woe be unto him that is at ease in Zion! Wo be unto him that crieth: All is well! Yea woe be unto him that hearkeneth unto the precepts of men, and denieth the power of God, and the gift of the Holy Ghost!
“Cherish what you have and guard it dearly. Because nothing left unguarded lasts forever.”
Once led astray out of the Way and Path, a follower or disciple may no longer boast of the Freedom keeping the Law really affords those who walk therein with and keep the commandments which liberate unlike freedom so-called and so purchased or taken by force as right and privilege undue, whose cost is a cloak that proves moth-eaten and unclean as deceitful gains may procure with rust cankered riches, not the sort HaShem’s people would ever trade with or for. Such as may boast of money for nothing and things for free, will get and have plenty of exactly what they believe in, and that as a plague thereof! Who despise true riches and are completely ignorant of the cost of Redemption – Riches by Christ Jesus. Seek first the Kingdom and His Righteousness and all else shall be added unto you as well, sans inequity, rid yourself of all common pelf and non-cents (Yeshayah 2) for God is able to give you much more than you may ask or imagine or ever rid yourself of, or spend/waste upon vanity(Divrey Hayamim Bais 25:9; Lukas 12:21; Gevurot 8:20-23; 2 Nephi 26:31; Helaman 13:31).
It is not time to collect ‘back pay’ nor to ‘pay’ anything ‘forward’, nor is their any entity that may claim with integrity sound and meritorious the right nor ought to be granted the permission to enforce laws and statutes unjust to collect debts or dues for vanity, because all are as an unclean thing and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags (Yeshayah 64:6), but it has been a time for God to pay back – His enemies for their treachery and His foes for their harlotry with fury and recompense, and for those who may know that you cannot hold true riches in your hands, He will dispense coins of fire to invest in Zion’s welfare, for with equity and justice all shall be judged and no man should want to keep that which is his own unless his neighbor may enjoy the same, so that the idiot and the knave will be hated throughout the land appointed to the Righteous who ought to concern themselves chiefly and solely with teshuva and redeeming the time because the days are evil (Kehillah in Ephesus 5:16). All selfish, covetous, deluded despisers and greedy false swearers shall know want like an armed man should for being a traitor and unless they speedily repent and seek to make right and amends for the many wrongs they have committed and people they have robbed, and most especially HaShem of Hosts. For shall a nation rob God forever?
But if they will repent they will be brought into His Covenant and enjoy the true riches of eternity.
“Which are Mine to give.” Doctrine and Covenants 38:39; 67:2.
The choice is theirs. What they owe to the righteous whom they have robbed and despoiled, murdered and fed off of amounts to four-fold restoration, which must be met with forgiveness and reconciliation except where the L-RD has forbidden the same.(Doctrine and Covenants 64:34-35; Mattityahu 24:51).
For the hardness of heart brings seven-fold vengeance upon the wicked.
And many will seek to bring near the rod of violence and a throne of iniquity and its wife with her children (Yeshayah 57:3-5), so as to protect their own interests and wealth so-called which is truly worthless. But they who know their God will bring all to Him and His people so as to ransom their own souls and the lives of their children and children’s children, whom, in fulfillment of this much, may ensure that We The People may in a not too distant future and time become a delightsome and pure people, holy seeders, though of a mixed multitude and often muttish, the sons of Jacob nevertheless, which is Israel – Spiritually begotten heirs of a Kingdom whose Liberty is a Gift of God which may not be purchased with perishable pelf of wealth. These may hold fire in their bosom and not be burned, (Mishle 6:23-33), because God knows their hearts and condemns those who seduce such so as to pervert justice, while enjoying sins seven times worse in secret (Kehillah in Ephesus 5:10-18), to the end that Satan’s ways may be fully known and the ignorant made wise, the foolish recovered and forgiven and the truly wicked condemned for what is in their hearts which is Satan’s will, hateful and burning envy. L’Chaim! Lechayim! Easy to come buy! Yeshayah 55:1-2!
Knowing that it is not easy for someone who has committed an unforgivable sin to find forgiveness but that it is the sworn duty of every believer to forgive even the most grievous of offenses and trespasses personally endured by We who should grant to One and to all perhaps the only really useful common sense that makes sense to all and that quite common indeed. Or rather thinking of the reward awaiting one who may be in such a fearful state of reckoning should render every man humble and more willing to forgive and forget than otherwise. Just a knowledge of eternal damnation and destruction of body and soul should make one and all reason commonly on all matters common or not. Or can you think of anyone you know or even an enemy or the stranger suffering eternal damnation and not think of forgiving such every trespass and sin that may have or may not have been intended to hurt you in the first much less in the last place or hindsight being 20/20; and look upon your fellow man in his extreme distress and not have compassion or mercy upon him in that moment? If you then, who are truly evil, are not moved to forgiveness and mercy at once and for all, then how much less should your heavenly Father forgive you and save you from a like fate?
Mattityahu 12:31 Therefore, I say to you, every chet (sin) and gidduf (blasphemy) will be forgiven men, but whoever commits Chillul Hashem against the Ruach Hakodesh will not be forgiven.
If you have no Covenant Promise or desire to be associated with those who do, you truly do not matter, and no matter who you are or where you are or what you think of yourself, you are less than dung, which at it’s worst state may still be found useful for something.
“And God established the covenant of circumcision with Abraham and said, ‘Everyone that is born, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised on the eighth day, does not belong to the children of the covenant which the L-RD made with Abraham, but instead they belong to the children of destruction. Nor is there any other sign on him that he is the L-RD’s, but he is destined to be destroyed and killed from the earth, and to be rooted out of the earth, for he has broken the covenant of the L-RD our God. All the angels of the presence (of the L-RD) and all the angels of sanctification have been already circumcised from the day of their creation, and before the angels of the presence (of the L-RD) and all the angels of sanctification He has sanctified Israel, that they should be with Him and with His holy angels.
“Command the children of Israel and let them observe the sign of this covenant for their generations as an eternal law, and they will not be rooted out of the land. For the command is ordained for a covenant, that they should observe it forever among all the children of Israel. For Ishmael and his sons and his brothers, and Esau, the L-RD did not cause them to come to Him, and He did not choose them. Although they are the children of Abraham. He knew them, but He chose Israel to be His people.
“He sanctified them, gathered them from among all the children of men; for there are many nations and many peoples, and all are His, and over all nations He has placed spirits in authority to lead them astray from Him. But over Israel He did not appoint any angel or spirit, for He alone is their ruler, and He will preserve them and require them at the hand of His angels and His spirits, and at the hand of all His powers in order that He may preserve them and bless them; that they may be His and He may be theirs from now on forever. “I announce to you that the children of Israel will not keep true to this law and that they will not circumcise their sons according to all this law; for in the flesh of their circumcision they will omit this circumcision of their sons, and of all the sons of Beliar will leave their sons uncircumcised as they were born.
“There will be great wrath from the L-RD against the children of Israel because they have forsaken His covenant and turned aside from His word, and provoked (God) and blasphemed, because they do not observe the ordinance of this law; for they have treated their genitalia like the Gentiles, so that they may be removed and rooted out of the land. And there will no more be pardon or forgiveness to them for all the sin of this eternal error.”
(From The Book of Jubilees and the Book of Jasher).
Nevertheless and notwithstanding the above truths…
“The Jews count 613 laws for themselves and only seven Gentile Laws from Noah. “Seven laws which were supposed by the rabbis to have been binding on all mankind even before the revelation at Sinai . . . exegetically derived from statements made by God to Adam and to Noah. Not To: 1) worship idols; 2) blaspheme the name of God; 3) kill; 4) commit adultery; 5) rob; 6) eat flesh that had been cut from a living animal. Must Do: 1) to establish courts of justice. These seven laws are binding on all non-Jews even today. Whoever observes them is considered to be among the ‘Righteous Gentiles’.” ”
“Until the day of man’s death Thou dost wait for him to repent, that he may incline toward immortal life…If he performs righteous deeds, they will follow him to his eternal home.” Enosh me yizke
