The TORAH, Written By The Hand Of Moses

The TORAH, Written by the Hand of Moses, dictated the Living GOD of Israel, is Real or TRUE.

That is where we start this article, accepting that statement as FACT. For our purposes here, we will not go into the old arguments. If you are not able to accept that, then what is said here you will be unable to comprehend. Stop reading here. Read something else. How about: “You Should Know and Understand This:”

Still here? Good.

The rest of this article is about the Written TORAH of Moses along with the balance of the TANAKH(Old Testament). It is about personal accountability, personal choice and why you should care.
What the LORD has been demonstrating and declaring throughout time, in HIS word, deed and presentation is: what we are expected to do and how. It has taken me until now to understand this: “The life of your soul, SPIRIT OF GOD in the flesh, is ALIVE or dead, based upon YOU. It is totally about Your personal choices and actions, while keeping the LAW. It is all that which determines the out-come.”

The LORD GOD, is The Father of your soul, repeatedly tells us: “Leviticus 19:2 . . . . Ye shall be holy; for I the LORD your God am holy.”

So? What does that mean?

Now we are getting to the meat of this article. How can I to be Holy? While I am in the flesh –This body?

The Short Answer is:

You and I must perform each line in the Covenants as Written, seeking understanding of them from The LORD GOD. But the first thing is to DO them. In doing them faithfully, and thinking about what you are doing will give you understanding of why. Thinking means with Intentionality, your focus and purpose it to do what GOD said to do. Before we were given the Covenant as Sinai, we were given this: “Exodus 19: 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto Myself. 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.’” Not born of the Children of Israel, the answer for that is also in the Written Torah, but not really a problem.

The Longer Answer:

It seems that for thousands of years, that question has been in the minds of some individuals. The story of the “Writers of the Dead Sea Scrolls”, seem to have been men that saw how mankind(even Jews) were against the LORD GOD, being evil and so sought to distance themselves, by becoming a group of recluses. Yet, this does not seem to be the correct path, as this was not declared by the LORD. Actually, it was impossible to be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth, while being a colony of men. I don’t think this is a good direction. Becoming a hermit is not the way to save your soul! It maybe a way of living quietly for a time, but you cannot be an example for others if you hide away.

They have somethings correct though. Man is held to a high standard than a woman. This is a fact, and not a sexist statement. [If a woman reading this is offended, I say: It is about lifting you to a higher standard and not bringing down. Any woman can strive to live according to the LAWS OF GOD as a woman, great, fabulous, but there is a law against a woman acting as a man, or a man acting as a woman. Please remember that neither Man nor Woman is complete by themselves, each requires the other to get closer to the ALMIGHTY.] Is it not declared “Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives, whomsoever they chose.” Where man was created by GOD, where GOD placed HIS Spirit in the dirt to create MAN(Genesis 2:7; therefore sons of GOD) and woman(Genesis 2:23 . . .she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.) was created out of man(daughters of man). NO, not lessor, maybe with more difficulties in self-control. I see that man was created to look outward, watching for danger, thinking, planning and striving to build and protecting all that is at home(behind him). While woman is designed for looking in, toward the family, the home and community, a place of growth and nurturing, a place where the man returns for care and healing. Together they create in their space a kind of heaven on earth.

These are the relationships of, GOD, man, woman. If a woman can act and be accountable in the same way as man, then do so, without becoming a man.(Deuteronomy 22:5 A woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment; for whosoever doeth these things is an abomination unto the LORD thy God.) I think it is difficult enough to be created with the challenges the LORD has set before us, without taking on more than we are commanded to be.

While I love women, and I mean I really love women. I agree with The LORD: Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said: ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; . . . .’. I know that I am not complete when I am alone. I have enough problems understanding and controlling myself, without having “time of the month”, having babies and all of the things they are confronted with, which I was not created to do. I have written about this in other articles, but now I am getting of course.

The TORAH of Moses is directed mostly at man. It includes or declares how a man is to deal with the world and the people in it. These LAWS can be taken as “What I can do”; “What I cannot do”; “ What I may do”; “What is forbidden”.

“What I can do” example: Have knowledge of a woman.(Leviticus 18, about who I cannot and thereby can know.)

“What I cannot do” example: Have knowledge of my sister. (Leviticus 18:9)

“What I may do” example: Entice a virgin woman, and have knowledge of her. Yet there is consequences for this, in that I must make her my wife, or at least try to (Exodus 22:15).

“What is forbidden” There are many things forbidden, while I have been dealing with sexual content, I will stay there for this. “Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is abomination.”

Why these items for examples? It is not enough to know the Yes, No and maybes; we must control or rise above the desires of our flesh to control ourself. We are very literally training for the World to Come, and you only get there by following the Creator of both this Heavens and Earth, and the World to come. This was the testing and training place for HIS Children. While is it great to strive to put a better understanding than what was given. Anything in excess becomes your down fall. Any desire, even those allowed can become your idol and the death of your soul. We are required to control ourselves and told we do. Two famous examples: the first one, of not considering what he does and the second not seeming to care.

First, King David desires a woman he sees bathing and does not consider what he is doing. Yes we are given his words and deeds, with regards his failure, but then we are shown that it did not occur to him what he was doing. Which, when he becomes aware of his actions only when the prophet Nathan seeks the King’s judgment. (2 Samuel 11…)

While the first committed grave sins, he accepted the evidence and blamed no one else, but repented to the LORD and did not the like again. The LORD truly LOVES David. The example shows how we need to repent and change before the LORD.

Second, King Solomon

I Kings 11:
“1 Now king Solomon loved many foreign women, besides the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;
2 of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel: ‘Ye shall not go among them, neither shall they come among you; for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods’; Solomon did cleave unto these in love.
3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his wives turned away his heart.
4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods; and his heart was not whole with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.
5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the detestation of the Ammonites.
6 And Solomon did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father.
7 Then did Solomon build a high place for Chemosh the detestation of Moab, in the mount that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech the detestation of the children of Ammon.
8 And so did he for all his foreign wives, who offered and sacrificed unto their gods.
9 And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel, who had appeared unto him twice,
10 and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods; but he kept not that which the LORD commanded.”
I am trying to reduce the amount of copy for the text, so as to let you discover whether I have it right or not. Yet in this one, I find it better to show you the text, regarding what King Solomon did that angered the LORD so. I note that Solomon did not repent and make right, just went on. The Kingdom was therefore split after his death as the LORD Declared

So here it is, the wisest King ever, blessed by the GOD Of Israel with Wisdom; Understanding; Fame; Glory; Fortune and Peace, was warned with the Children Of Israel not to do this thing. And yet in his old age, his heart was not only turned, but he also went after their gods.

There are times that refraining from something is not the right thing to do. For we must always be alter to there right thing to do Now! For example, “Exodus 23:4 If thou meet thine enemy’s ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt surely bring it back to him again.” (part of the Sinai Covenant) We are to actively lookout for our neighbors, even your enemy, to do right and good before the LORD GOD.

We are to apply thought and deed, above desire and need. I have began using this phrase “Be Righteous with Intentionality” a focus of your mind, heart and total being to Love The LORD OUR GOD and doing HIS teachings. It also declared by Moses many times, including “Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”

What are the take aways from this writing:
1) Each of us has our own challenges, you are to rise above yours.
2) Understand that your outcome is in your Actions and Deeds, no one else can change your outcome.
3) The Living GOD Of Israel, waits for HIS Children, with Love, Patience, Wisdom and HIS Compassion as a Father over HIS OWN CHILDREN. To HIS Enemies, I don’t want to go there. . . .
4) Behave with Intentionality to do that which is Right and Live.

I can show you the way, if you want to know.

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

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.’)
