The GOD, Who Brought You Out Of Egypt To BE YOUR GOD!

This phrase from “Exodus 20:2  I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” This verse declares a few a few things. 1) I am the LORD your GOD. 2) (Because) I brought you out of the land of Egypt!. 3)(Out of ) The house of bondage.

These three items are fulfillment of a deal made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob more that 450 years earlier. HE IS GOD because HE HAS DONE what no other has ever done. He Foretold and then DID what HE Said. HE KEEPS HIS WORD.

Genesis 15:13 And He said unto Abram: ‘Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14 and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge; and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

HE KEEPS HIS WORD.

This has been a discussion from another time. Found at  http://ask-james.com/wordpress1/?p=765 entitled “The Challenge, Answered By None.”

Why bring this up now? For weeks and months I have listened to Jewish leaders, both “religious” and none religious, attempt to discredit the Writings of Moses(The Written Torah). This is not new and has been going on in writings of these people 2200+ years. There are those that claim a oral tradition(when we cannot repeat a message by ten people in the same room correctly) is more correct than that Written By the Hand Of Moses. Keep in mind that these same advocates also declare in Shul(Temple, Synagogue, Bet Midrash), when putting the Written TORAH Scroll away, that it is Written by the Hand Of Moses.

What is new, is that these leaders are now declaring “The Exodus from Egypt did not happen” as in publication of Reform Judaism’s Spring 2013 edition in which Professor David Sperling and Rabbi David Wolpe asserted that the biblical Exodus is a fiction.

In the “Reform Judaism — Spring 2014”, Page 6, has the article “The Exodus Is Not FICTION” Richard Elliott Friedman.

Whether by error in judgment or by intended deceit, these leader are leading Against The LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL. And many of us are following.

What is this ALMIGHTY GOD that I should believe HIM?

Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: when He hath said, will He not do it? or when He hath spoken, will He not make it good?

HE always keeps HIS WORD, Lest it be said “Deuteronomy 32:27 Were it not that I dreaded the enemy’s provocation, lest their adversaries should misdeem, lest they should say: Our hand is exalted, and not the LORD hath wrought all this.'”.

If the Exodus did not happen, then the balance of religions(Judaism, Christianity and Islam) are a lie, for all have this one foundation of truth. The GOD of Abraham is GOD.

Okay, so what is happening here? What is the truth? Why does it matter to me?

Let’s start with the last question first. “Why does it matter to me?” Me being you the reader and what I write for you is also for me, myself. Only you change your out-come for Good or Evil. Said another way, only you are responsible for your soul. No one else can add to nor take way from, your deeds. Only you can change to out come.

All of this attacking the Written Torah, seems to be a war against the LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL. Yet, the main questions must then be: “How can I know the Truth?” and “What is the truth?” Personally, I what to know the truth, so that I know where to stand,more good times and get less pain and loss. I learned when I was in the U.S. Navy, the first time, that staying inside the Law, would give me much greater freedom, with free time and I got to keep my money, unless I decided to been the rules beyond limits(breaking point). At which point, a loss of freedom(restriction), extra work(duty), loss of pay(no money left) and possible reduction in rank and or discharged with less than honorable record. All of these penalties could be avoided by knowing the rules and staying with in them. It worked well, I received more time off, spent where I wanted to spend it, places like in Mombasa Kenya, Perth Australia, or in Monte Carlo Monaco, or in Casablanca Morocco, where I would use my time and money, not always wisely. But, At least I had my Time, Money and freedom to do so. If this world is a training place for the next, what you learn will produce similar effects. But fighting against the Maker will not turn out well.

So for me, knowing Who The ALMIGHTY is, What HE wants from ME, How I am to treat those people close to me, How to treat those that are not close to me, and My responsibility to protect everyone from what I do. This is what I know to be in the Written TORAH of Moses.

So if some scholar decides for whatever reason to declare war upon the foundations of what I have discovered to be TRUE, and upon the GOD of Abraham, GOD of Isaac, GOD of Jacob, MY GOD, then I am going to take exception and will look for myself, at what they claim to be true. Note — I am no longer a young lad without time and learning. To be truthful, I have been striving to know what to do and whom to follow for more than five decades. I actually go to check every reference made to verify the evidence, either good or bad. And then to find a second witness demonstrating the evidence of the first witness.

Yes a tedious process, but one that keeps the Law. While demonstrating the TRUTH of THE WRITTEN TORAH.

Back to what is happening.

It is one thing to declare that you believe multiple people are the authors of the Written Torah, (Not True) but you can believe that if you are Keeping the LAW as written. Except that instead of multiple authors, it is claimed that this oral tradition and the re-writes are just as valid or even more valid that the Writing of Moses. This last allows for the destruction of the WORD of GOD, so that anyone can change GOD’s word and laws, even to make them void. Sometimes done by legislating around the rules, so that they either are less functional or taking a mention of something to being of some greater importance. All while assuming that the LORD that told Moses what to write, would not notice or had no power to stop the changes. The holocaust, pogroms, expulsions, slavery, murder, ghettos, hatred, were all caused by mankind and have no correlation with our actions or the curses from Leviticus and Deuteronomy. The next and probably last are upon us, yet we will refuse to look, to perceive or to know our deeds or the GOD OF OUR FATHERS. Ouch!

So that is what has been going on for thousands of years now. But only in the last 70 years have we decided that we will change the dates of what we find in the ground, so that it cannot relate to the “God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt”. Common phrase used is “ the Exodus did not happen in the way it is described in the text, on the background of the 13th century BC” –Israel Finkelstein, Archaeologist – Tel Aviv University or “There is no evidence of the Exodus at the time we expect.” And similar claims. Each of these claims deals with “at a particular time”, and yet this does not rule out the evidence at other times. Why then the disclaimer? More than looking at the evidence IN THE GROUND, but making statements to void the WORD of GOD. So why is it so important to make a statement that the EXODUS is not real, Not at the time we think it should have happened? Such statements are against GOD not just the religions that hold this to be true.

Should evidence in ground and the steps that follow the Written TORAH be presented with out declaring a specific date first? Does evidence exist in the ground? Is there step by step evidence, in the proper sequence? From Joseph through the conquest of the Promised Land?

There is evidence! Step-by-Step Evidence! Even External Evidence! But, 300 to 400 years earlier than the archeologist declare is the time. So the problem comes down to man attempting over ride the Evidence and GOD.

Worse yet, many religious leaders are now stating the denial claim, rather than the evidence found. This is nothing new.

This denial process has been happening for a very long time. By the rewriting the words, laws, teachings, either adding to or the removal from any offending text, so that control over the people is greater, but the cost is also greater! A battle against the LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL. We think we are winning because HE has not silenced us yet! He let’s us fulfill the text, including the Curses against HIS CHILDREN. Right up until the moment that all the Earth will KNOW, that HE IS GOD, and almost everyone was WRONG! Without a chance to change their outcome.

Some will say that I am taking this personal. I am! It is an attack upon my GOD, which I know to be GOD. It then is an attack upon the Promises HE MADE to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I believe that it is better that people hear from the Prophets of the LORD(no I did not think I am one!), or from one that knows HE(The ALMIGHTY GOD) has acted in my life in ways which I cannot deny ever again. This is not just from an emotional individual, but from the evidence based thoughtful person I have become. It is your choice, GOD or not god. However, if you have evidence available to you and you refuse to look, it is your outcome that is in question. Although not really in question, for you have earned your reward. Your reward based upon your actions, you will receive for the GOD ALMIGHTY. You should find out the answer to the most important questions in your life.

These are: Is THE ALMIGHTY REAL? What does HE WANT from me? How can I change to get better knowledge and save what is important to me? How can I save myself? Just a few questions you should answer, or seriously attempt to answer.

Think about it. Choose wisely, for everything that is YOU, depends on it.

Is anyone listening? You still have breath and life, you can return and repair your deeds. You just need to Do It while you have time.

I can not save you, no one can., you must Return and do that which is Right.

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

IT is to our benefit to HEARKEN until the LIVING GOD OF ISHRAEL/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.’)
