A Remnant

rem·​nant | \ ˈrem-nənt  \Definition of remnant (Entry 1 of 2)1a: a usually small part, member, or trace remainingb: a small surviving group —often used in pluralhttps://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/remnant

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 […]

My body, My choice includes:

My body, My choice includes: My choice, My Responsibility, then My Shame.

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 […]

Jeremiah 3:1 … saying: If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man’s, may he return unto her again? Will not that land be greatly polluted? But thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; and wouldest thou yet return to Me? saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 3:20 Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with Me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.

Parashiyot: Vayechi 20200111

20200111 Parashiyot: Vayechi = Genesis 47:27 thru 50:26; Haftarot: 1 Kings 2:1..12.

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.

Connections between the Torah portion and the Haftarot.

First in connect is […]

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 […]

Shall Not Be Remembered

The verse is Isaiah 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

Why is this writing about “Shall Not Be Remembered”, nor come to mind? One thing that has been true, is that every person leaves an imprint upon other humans. Whether for good or evil, there is some memory of them and their actions. The statement made in stories goes something like “I will be remembered: for having been; as the one; my children will remember; this building is my testimony; . . […]
