The Consequences Of Our Actions

This is about another insight which gives more understanding about the Written Torah and Your Life’s results.

This started from a text message from someone I love and care about even though they are not with me. The message was, “I think people are going to be god to the punch”.

That set me to thinking about the Written Torah and spread to the Whole Tanakh, comparing our start on this world until now. Humana and our actions.

In starting to address that message, I pointed out that THE ALMIGHTY does not have to punish anyone for the world to degrade into nothingness. There is the idea that everything starts in an ordered manner, like a piece of iron, forged and beaten into a gate for the fence. That gate is made of ordered molecules, designed and formed in to a useful gate. Entropy, the breakdown of something over time in to a non-functional deformed mass. Like the gate will in time become a pile of rust, not a useful gate anymore.

What does this have to do with mankind and the Written TORAH and the end of this world?

Let’s take it a little slower, for this speed is how we miss to much that is simple and very important.

We should start near the beginning of all of this. Adam and Eve had a great place, the Garden of Eden; they were young and healthy; all the food they could want, warm and comfortable they were. First they lost their place by being removed from the Garden by disobeying the only rule. Now they had to work to get their own food, and clothing and shelter and have children for help and support and to create the families of the earth. It could still be a reasonable good life. Not the Garden, but a good life. There were no rules to guide them on how to treat each other. So they did everything they could imagine to others, without the idea of any consequences for their actions. They did increase in number and increased in the ways they harmed one another. So much so that the CREATOR needed to put a stop to this and Clean out the DECAY left behind. This was done with a FLOOD to cover the total Earth save for some animals and a father his three sons and their wives. All else was cleansed from the earth.

The returning family and animals were given a couple of rules this time about how to treat each other. A command: “Genesis 9:7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; swarm in the earth, and multiply therein.’”. They were also given a promise by the CREATOR not to destroy the Earth in the same way again. (This does leave a lot of possible way to destroy the Earth. Just pointing this out.)

Just like the last time, the people did not do as instructed, but rebelled. They even went so far as to build a tower in rebellion, “Genesis 11:4 And they said: ‘Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, with its top in heaven, and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.’”. Their language was confused by the ALMIGHTY and the did spread out. The tower was called Babel, from “Genesis 11:9 Therefore was the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth; and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”.

From these two sections of rebellion we can understand that little or no wisdom about how to live in peace and harmony comes from our flesh and bone. Because of our nature, the ALMIGHTY did choose an old man and an old woman to create the family which would be the example to the whole world of how to implement the Rules and Covenants that were to come.

As a reference of what was, what should be, how to get there, why we should do go there, becomes the reason Moses writes down what the LORD says, called the Written Torah or Five Books of Moses. There in is the instructions for a GOOD life and the consequence of death. This has been viewed as laws and punishments by many people. This is the same rebellious view and attitude the created the events shown above.

If it is not Laws and Punishments, then what is it? And why should we care?

They are the instructions from the Creator, about how to have a GOOD. LONG LIFE in this world that is HIS Garden, and the consequences of doing other than what was HE Instructed.

THE ALMIGHTY does not need or want to punish us. When we follow the instructions, act has HIS Children, which HE Created and cares for, so by HIS Actions: HE blesses us and wants us to Enjoy a GOOD LONG LIFE, protects us and desires to be among HIS Children. “Ezekiel 18:23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD; and not rather that he should return from his ways, and live?”

However, we must choose which direction we will go. Because we must choose, most of us will find some reason to not do the good as instructed, but to follow our flesh, thoughts and so act in a manner that cause our own destruction. Also destroying the lives and future of family, friends and communities and even nation. This bad behavior is the Entropy of the Earth, more than anything else. It is the Living GOD OF JACOB that will clean the Heavens and the Earth, then creating a New Heavens and New Earth for the children that learned to live according to the Instructions found in those Writing of Moses.

How can I become one of HIS Children?

Put most simply, Stop doing that which is Evil and do that which is Right. A longer version which demonstrates how this works is:

Ezekiel 18:26 When the righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall die therefor; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die. 
27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.””.

So what is “lawful and right”?

All of that is found in the Writings of Moses. In case you are worried that something is hidden from you there, and so there might be some special rule or action you must take, that somebody must show you. Moses answers that also.
Deuteronomy 30:10 if thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this book of the law; if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul. 
11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not too hard for thee, neither is it far off.
12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say: ‘Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it?’
13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say: ‘Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it?
14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil,
16 in that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His ordinances. . . .”

In conclussion, all of human history demonstrates, when we do not or will not apply the Rules, Laws, and Covenants which the LORD GOD ALMGHTY has made available to each of us. The consequences of each bad choice creates problems that we may outrun from awhile, but they always catch us. The LORD does not need to do anything punish us, only not Save US from our results. We create our own punishments and suffering by our actions. But you can change what is coming. You can do what is right according to HIS LAWS and Teachings, which will not long save this world, but will save you for the next.

Not save this world? No, for this world is already a path so vile as to make the time of Noah and the flood seem tame. And we carry our evil even to the heavens.

Don’t believe me? Look around the World of 2020, the world itself is nice and has the Creators Glory, but almost all the people are anything but a glory, with a great many being like a curse.

You can still change your life and your outcome. The CREATOR, GOD ALMIGHTY is ready for you.

You must chose, but chose wisely. If you do not know enough to chose, seek, get help, but don’t wait. Time is all but gone. The Last Day is within the life times of those alive now.

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.’)

For me this is a troubling thought. Which starts with Deuteronomy 32:9 For the portion of the LORD is His people, Jacob the lot of His inheritance. Only a small part of HIS Children will return. Because they refuse their father, ignore HIS teachings, break HIS Covenants and HIS Laws. It is not as if any of HIS words are evil or unrighteous. They are in fact perfect in judgment and in our benefit to do them. If every one just […]

The Question: Who Am I?

I was introduced to a series of movies called “Kung Fu Panda” by someone I really care about. In this animation, the hero of the story is always searching to be something better or different and ultimately always questions himself with “Who Am I?”.

The Panda’s final answer is “I am all of these things!”. That is where we are going to end up, when this piece is done.

The movie or movies are not how I got on this subject. It happened as I was thinking about what happened last night at a Jewish Learning event. During said […]

You should know before you go any further, this will be a frank article and so may offend your sensitive nature. There for BEWARE!

Ooooh! What shame is that?

“My Body”

We will get to that, but let’s start with “My Body”. It is the only body you have and the only one you get in this life. What you do to it is up to you. Or better yet, it is your responsibility. For a female, the power to create life is hers alone in the […]

Note: I should point out, {if you have not read my writings before}, that I take not only the written words and {even there when in doubt got to the Written Torah} the outcomes or results which establish the truth of what is being written. So I give the evidence found with the text locate and hype-links to access the text yourself. It is extremely rare that a single verse can stand by itself.

Knowing What Is Coming

Knowing what is coming is not easy to acknowledge. It has a lot in common with knowing right and wrong.

What will happen to you depends upon your choices and how you act. We often fall prey to the people around us and how they behave.

How can this be true? How the people around you act, says how you will likely act. It was said very well in the movie “the Fast and The Furious -Tokyo Drift”. When one of the lead people explains to the hero, “Who you chose to have around you, lets you […]

Get Over It

These are words that I used to hear people say when I was young. Okay its fifty or sixty years ago, I’m not that young anymore.

Recently I was watching a dvd I purchased last year called “Hell Freezes Over” -an Eagles album. They mention this song in the introduction to this concert, and the song is toward the end of the event. A very nice song, which is worthy of listening to and reflection upon its content.

So what does any of this to do […]

Enemies of THE ALMIGHTY

Wow! What an opening line.

How can you know if what you do makes you one of those? Perhaps you would like to know one of the places this is pointed out?

Deuteronomy 32 is about our rejection and HIS NOTICE then Actions. Like in: “16 They roused Him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations did they provoke Him“, or perhaps just bluntly stated as in: “19 And the LORD saw, and spurned, because of the provoking of His sons and His daughters.“

An example of what that rejection looks like: “Instead of striving to keep the […]

Bad Speech – Lashon HaRah

Lashon HaRah

Also known as Bad Speech, has been taken to the point of too far, so that no speech is allowed about another person. You are not allowed to say good or bad of another person. It is the perfect way to shut up everybody you don’t like. It is even a good way to stop others from knowing your crimes and sins.

This is not what is actually meant in the Written Torah, The Word of GOD by the Hand of Moses? No, it is not what the Written Torah says, and not even close.

Do not […]
