A Child Of GOD, Meaning?

During our lives we will and have heard that phrase “Child of God” many times and from various sources. But, to quote from the “Princess Bride” movie:

[Vizzini has just cut the rope The Dread Pirate Roberts is climbing.]
Vizzini: HE DIDN’T FALL? INCONCEIVABLE.
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. {From imdb.com: quotes}

The point is: We often use words and phrases which sound good, without thinking about the meaning or consequence of such words.
So let us look at the meaning of this “Child Of God”, for an understanding of what it means.

If You are a human, with a Soul(Spirit Of GOD), then you are a child of god, as “any sperm and egg can create a baby” so too, you are dirt and Spirit to create potential child. This means, that although everyone of us has the potential to BE a Child Of the Living GOD Of Ishrael, most will not become that child.

There are many reasons most will fail by rejecting(willful) or missing(lack other things like: desire, knowledge, lazy, don’t want to bother, . . . ) the opportunity to become a “Child Of GOD”. Here are a couple of examples:

1) Some just don’t accept the there is a CREATOR of the Heavens and the Earth.
2) Some just don’t care enough to even seek to know.
3) Many just do what they were told to do by a group of people( friends, relatives, school, church, religious leaders, magazines, newspaper, books, movies, . . . . ). They just follow along. Special answer for those: Isaiah 27:”10 For the fortified city is solitary, a habitation abandoned and forsaken, like the wilderness; there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and consume the branches thereof. 11 When the boughs thereof are withered, they shall be broken off; the women shall come, and set them on fire; for it is a people of no understanding; therefore He that made them will not have compassion upon them, and He that formed them will not be gracious unto them.” A people without understanding. (http://ask-james.com/wordpress1/?p=481).

So here is a question for you. If you do not: believe; want to know, or are against there being a Creator; worshiping something else which is not The Living GOD Of Ishreal; are you HIS child?

Let us try this in human terms. Your father and mother are your father and mother. It does not matter whether you do what you are told, love them, respect them, care about them, honor them, none of that matters. They are your father and your mother, having given you that which caused your existence. Your mother even gave birth to you after a period of gestation. [No I am not considering the acts of man to circumvent the natural process.]

I know that there are many who can come up with excuses as to why they are the way they are. I tell you that: This life you have is your life, and only your choosing ground, where you get to select how you are going to End Up. It is your choice, which, the Living GOD Of Ishrael, gave you, by creating a place and a life from which you are required to choose, GOD ALMIGHTY or other. Your reward is based upon your choice and your actions.

So we will not fail to choose what we really are. The result of your choices and actions make you either; A Child Of GOD or not. Your choice, your outcome.

My opinion? My advice? If you don’t know the Father of Your Soul, seek HIM. You could alternately just, . . . . Moses wrote these Words from the FATHER. Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine; 6 and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.’ {Ishrael! This is the definition of the Righteous of GOD, not those that struggle with god. That is the difference between Ishrael and Israel. http://ask-james.com/wordpress1/?p=1144}

Don’t have a Written Torah or Tanakh, try this one: JPS 1917 Version

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

If it is not already true, then My prayer is that The LORD grant you eyes that see, ears that hear and an understanding heart, then you return unto HIM soon!(Isaiah 6: 9 And He said: ‘Go, and tell this people: hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they, seeing with their eyes, and hearing with their ears, and understanding with their heart, return, and be healed.’)

My prayer is that The LORD grant you eyes that see, ears that hear and an understanding heart, then you return unto HIM soon!

We Just Do Not Like The Answer!

This is probably the most disconcerting issue. No the answer is not 42!

Wait! That is the problem, we just don’t like the answer. So we keep looking for another answer.

Maybe we should start with a Written Torah example, where a man named Balak does not like the answer. So he tells Balaam to look at them(Children of Jacob) from here!

Well the story is in Numbers 22 thru 24. Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time. He sees what the Israelites have done to the Amorites, and is afraid. He sends representatives to […]

A Response To One Playing Devils Advocate

While I was celebrating a Feast of Unleaven Bread dinner, a Holocaust Survivor, began a rant against the LIVING GOD OF Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

“Why should I server a selfish, jealous, maniacal, egotistical, self centered god? . . . . .”

I began a rebuttal with questions like: You should be able to fight your mother and your father, that gave you life and safety, clothed you and feed you and an education, and belong to a family, and . . . . .?

The immediate response is “I am just playing devil’s advocate!”

So here I am going […]

Why Are Most Of Us Worse Than The Pharaoh in the Exodus?

Why are most of us are worse than, the Pharaoh in the Exodus Story?

We spend our lives, not learning what is really important. That GOD is; also that Your soul, which is more valuable that anything you can desire, is yours to save or lose.

The Hebrews were out of Egypt in a few months of the LORD sending Moses and Aaron, which came, and said unto Pharaoh:, ‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: Let My people go, that they may hold a feast unto Me in the wilderness.’ “Exodus 5:1”

Yes! Most are worse than Pharaoh, […]

Do Unto Others_Reviewed

Do unto others. . . .

The religions of the world have really been beating this one for a long time. I don’t see that this has improved the world.

Let us look at the examples of the text.

http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0319.htm JPS 1917 Leviticus 19:18 Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

“ thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”

This has a number of ramifications and willful (by humans) re-interpretations.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) http://bible.cc/matthew/7-12.htm Matthew 7:12 Therefore all […]

A Death, Then What?

It Was The Death of Your Body.

In watching various movies and reading stories over a couple of decades, somethings happened.

Instead of just seeing a death, I saw: that it is usually sudden, usually not your choice of when or how. But, it could happen with the next heart beat or not. So what happens when you pass that point and you find that your body is no longer usable?

Your soul is not dead, yet. However, it does contain the record of everything you have done. In some thinking this would be the sum of you and your […]

Are We Not Righteous?

The Children of Jacob have Covenants with the LORD GOD. These included belonging to the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. Are we not already the LORD’S? First you are required to choose, but the short answer for most is: Absolutely Not!

How can we get it Right: Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine; 6 and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the […]

Who Thinks They Can Study With Me?

Do you think you are knowledgeable about the Tanakh?

How about the written TORAH?

For me to help others to learn, is great. I really enjoy teaching those that want the Truth. Those that ask intelligent questions, even from a child. The last seem to grasp what is Written and then able to ask better questions than most adults or religious leaders I have ever met.

In a way this is great, for children are most inquisitive and if treated to direct answers and discussion, they can be very fast learners.

But, the Study I am looking for are with […]

The GOD, Who Brought You Out Of Egypt To BE YOUR GOD!

This phrase from “Exodus 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” This verse declares a few a few things. 1) I am the LORD your GOD. 2) (Because) I brought you out of the land of Egypt!. 3)(Out of ) The house of bondage.

These three items are fulfillment of a deal made with Abraham, Isaac […]

Are You Saying That, We Caused The Evil That Happened To Us?

Are You Saying That We Caused The Evil That Happened To Us?

The Holocaust is Our FAULT?

My response is: “Well, . . . . I have to say that it looks that way according to the Word of The MOST HIGH via HIS Prophets. Yes!”

So, Are you ready for the next one? It is here, if you look, you can see it happening.

Our history, even that of the last 200 years, bears out the punishments and salvations.

This is how too many conversations go, when I suggest that we(Jews), could and will end the worlds trouble.

(Deuteronomy […]
