No Half Way To Saving Your Soul

A response to a Rabbi on Face Book.

Numbers 10:29 And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses’ father-in-law: ‘We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said: I will give it you; come thou with us, and we will do thee good; for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.’ 30 And he said unto him: ‘I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred.’ 31 And he said: ‘Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou shalt be to us instead of eyes. 32 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what good soever the LORD shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.’

Moses is showing respect and compassion for his father-on-law, in that he is offering to make him of the Children of Ishrael. Moses’s father-in-law has been his father-in-law more than 50 years now. And Moses tries to convince him to partake of the GOOD which Jethro knows the LORD has declared for Ishrael. Jethro will not go, but returns to his place.

I do not like where this articles writer seems to be going with beginning:”At the same time, these people certainly need strength from their rabbis and mentors navigating the difficulties that they deal with when it comes to family, friends, livelihood…” unto the end of the writing.

Like a smoker or an alcoholic, you either are doing it or you are not. You either Keep The Covenants OF GOD or you do not. There is no middle road, no almost but not really. As an ex-smoker, I know that even one puff for me will have me back smoking, just like an alcoholic with one drink will return immediately to the same habits. i quit now more that 30 years ago, and I still crave a smoke when I smell it in the air.

I am also one that Chose The LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL.

So too is the Righteous versus a Sinner. he moment you sin, your soul is marked for death. That is what happened at the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”, you sin you die(soul).

There is no try!!
Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die; the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father with him, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son with him; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. 21 But if the wicked turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all My statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. 22 None of his transgressions that he hath committed shall be remembered against him; for his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

There is no TRY!!
Ezekiel 18:24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? None of his righteous deeds that he hath done shall be remembered; for his trespass that he trespassed, and for his sin that he hath sinned, for them shall he die.

Isaiah presents that for the Home Born and for the stranger the rules are the same:

Isaiah 56:1 Thus saith the LORD: Keep ye justice, and do righteousness; for My salvation is near to come, and My favour to be revealed. 2 Happy is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that holdeth fast by it: that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.

For the stranger:
Isaiah 56:3 Neither let the alien, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying: ‘The LORD will surely separate me from His people’; . . .6 Also the aliens, that join themselves to the LORD, to minister unto Him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be His servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and holdeth fast by My covenant: 7 Even them will I bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer; their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices shall be acceptable upon Mine altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.

You either Do what is Right or you do evil. Deuteronomy 29:
8 Observe therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may make all that ye do to prosper.
9 Ye are standing this day all of you before the LORD your God: your heads, your tribes, your elders, and your officers, even all the men of Israel,
10 your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that is in the midst of thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water;
11 that thou shouldest enter into the covenant of the LORD thy God–and into His oath–which the LORD thy God maketh with thee this day;
12 that He may establish thee this day unto Himself for a people, and that He may be unto thee a God, as He spoke unto thee, and as He swore unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
13 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;
14 but with him that standeth here with us this day before the LORD our God, and also with him that is not here with us this day–

This is valid today, The Covenant and HIS Oath The ALMIGHTY KEEPS HIS WORD, the TRUTH.

It is wrong to say this: “the thing is that they have to be true to themselves and at the very least be consistent with what they do. Even if they don’t do everything they are supposed, what they are able to do, they should be consistent as possible.”, About the WORD OF THE LORD.

You are to keep the Covenants and Teachings Written By the Hand of Moses. Start with the TEN SAYINGS – Exodus 20, but learn all of the Covenant Exodus 20..24 and the Covenant of Circumcision (declaring that You are GOD’S and HE IS YOUR GOD) {“Genesis 17:7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee and to thy seed after thee.” }

If you don’t do everything anyone else says, okay, but your soul is either Alive or Dead based upon what you do before the Living God Of ISHRAEL.

We need the Truth, without which we are lost.

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.’)
