Questioning to Learn

A child is not born knowing anything. It may learn that it feels comfortable in the way it is being, enjoying the connection to this source of warm liquid it is getting. It feeds. It sleeps. It is in some kind of a mess which is uncomfortable and so begins to whimper, louder and louder and then crying until one of those nice people take care of me.

Some time later the child figures out how to make words, and how to be understood. So the child may ask questions about everything and does ask. Possession of a hunger […]

IF!

Preface: If! That is quite the title. It will be coming up in various place in this writing. But, the real purpose is to draw attention to the place it becomes a conditional statement, from the actual Written Torah. The conditional statement is in the form of (IF . . . Then). In computer programming this can also take the form of (If, then, or else) where the IF is a test which then branches to various outcomes. — Onward!

There are many ways that we fight against the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. Even against our […]

What Is The Purpose Of All Of This?

Those are very oblique and very direct questions. Oblique in the part: “Of All Of This”. Direct in: “What is the Purpose”.

My short answer is: That the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth is waiting for HIS Children to be HIS Children. To do by our own choice and will, that which Our FATHER has said to do. This is true Wisdom(Holiness), and comes from Knowing Right and Wrong, then choosing by your actions, your will and intent, to do that which is Right.

What is RIGHT? The Actions, LAWS, Covenants and Teachings as Taught by The […]

Last Verse of Exodus 12 - The Importance

נ  וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, כָּל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל:  כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶת-אַהֲרֹן, כֵּן עָשׂוּ.  {ס} נא  וַיְהִי, בְּעֶצֶם הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה:  הוֹצִיא יְהוָה אֶת-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם–עַל-צִבְאֹתָם.  {פ}

Exodus 12: 50 Thus did all the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they. {S} 51 And it came to pass the selfsame day that the LORD did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their hosts. {P}

So, that is the Hebrew text. I have been listening to Torah Study audio of 20181027, Congregation Beth Am in Los Altos Hills, lead by Rabbi Janet Marder. Exodus 12:51 through […]

To Be Of The Children Or Israel --Deeper, much deeper

So what does it mean, to be of the Children Of Israel? Where did the name come from?

As always, I highly recommend reading the full chapter of every reference I make. Actually, you should do that, for anything you are ready to believe, from any source. Check the references. If they are telling you the truth, they won’t mind.

I notice that “names” are very important in the TaNaKh (Acronym of Written Torah (Ta=Law), Nevi’im (Na=Prophets) and Ketuvim (Kh=Writings), what non-Jews call the Old Testament.). There are many discussions about the NAME of GOD, or about Abram which became […]

The Laws at the Hand Of Moses Versus The Covenants

There is a difference between the Laws of Moses and The Covenants(Contracts) with The GOD of Our Fathers. An example of this is in the Law of Circumcision, where we have Genesis 17:

9 And God said unto Abraham: ‘And as for thee, thou shalt keep My covenant, thou, and thy seed after thee throughout their generations. 10 This is My covenant, which ye shall keep, between Me and you and thy seed after thee: every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token […]

The Witness Of Two Or More

To determine the truth, or even to declare the TRUTH, of OUR GOD, two or more witnesses are required.

Deuteronomy 17:

6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is to die be put to death; at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Deuteronomy 19:

15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth; at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall a matter be established.

We are given […]

On the Witness of Two or More –Truth Is Known

The purpose of knowing the Truth, for this article comes from the understanding that We are in trouble. The “We” being the Children of Israel, The Jews, The Land of Israel, The Nations round about, All Flesh upon the Earth, are very new the last day. Statements about the Last Day have been made for a couple thousand years at least.

Is it now apparent that we really need to know what the truth is? I understand that the truth should be based on something that we can hold fast(Securely). We seem to be in a world of upside down, […]

How Is Physical Exercise Like Being Righteous?

Newton’s laws of motion pl n 1. (General Physics) three laws of mechanics describing the motion of a body. The first law states that abody remains at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by a force. The second lawstates that a body’s rate of change of momentum is proportional to the force causing it. The third lawstates that when a force acts on a body due to another body, then an equal and opposite force actssimultaneously on that body Collins English Dictionary – Complete and Unabridged © HarperCollins Publishers 1991, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2003

The OUTSIDE May Not Reflect The INSIDE

In advertising you sell an image or an idea, usually around, Sex, Safety, Money, Desirability or Fear. The most common method is to use a model; female or male which your audience could either desire to have or be. In this we are sold an outside image of a person. That process is also used all of the time to sell yourself, either to yourself or to others. Yes you are selling to you.

Let us look around the world for a moment. Just look at the people, one person at a time. In their appearance what do you see? […]
