The Challenge, Answered By None.

I tell the end at the beginning. . . . .
“He knew the End at the Beginning?”

This is the strongest proof of the LIVING GOD OF ISRAEL and thereby why we should do what HE SAID we should do. To tell accurately, what is going to happen in the future, is BY HIS DEFINITION a test of a god. As follows:

Isaiah 41:
17 The poor and needy seek water and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst; I the LORD will answer them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
18 I will open rivers on the high hills, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia-tree, and the myrtle, and the oil-tree; I will set in the desert the cypress, the plane-tree, and the larch together;
20 That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.
21 Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your reasons, saith the King of Jacob.
22 Let them bring them forth, and declare unto us the things that shall happen; the former things, what are they? Declare ye, that we may consider, and know the end of them; or announce to us things to come.
23 Declare the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods; yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.

24 Behold, ye are nothing, and your work a thing of nought; an abomination is he that chooseth you.
Okay so do you understand the power of this test. Proof of GOD or not.
In my writing: Does GOD Exist?
I wrote a midrash, a story about an event from a different point of view. It reads like this:
[Start Story]

I said No Mistakes, there are no accidents either. This is my own imagined story.

An ant, in an ant colony, 4100 years ago, in a desert near a large populated area. This ant is just a place holder, like a zero in the number 1,000,000,000,000,000(a million billions). The ant’s existence seems to have 1/1,000,000…. significants in the colony and so much less in the world. Yet that ant found a scorpion sunning itself, and the ant became agitated and other ants came and attacked the scorpion. Distracting the scorpion from striking the foot which almost stepped on it, in its passage. The foot belonged to a man on the run two days from Egypt, where a death had happened. The scorpion did not suffer but left the ants behind. The ant and its companions went back to hunting and foraging for supplies. The foot belonged to Prince Moses of Egypt.

If the scorpion had struck the foot of Moses, he would not be there to fend off the herdsmen that were causing trouble for the daughters of the high priest of Midian. The priest’s name is Jethro, who took a liking to the man that helped his daughters. . . .

[End of the story.]

In that little midrash, I am pointing out that there are millions of things to consider, with even one moment in time on one square yard, which have the potential to change the outcomes of today.

So what else could happen in the story above which would have delayed or even stopped further progress(killed Moses) before arriving at the well? Heat stroke; heart attacked from dehydration; exhaustion; lack of food; missteps: on a stone; broken leg or foot from the previous; quick sand; sand storm; meteor; snake; . . . . .

Okay so maybe you say coincidence.  Or another person would have been given the job.

So let us look at this man. When a baby, saved by his mother from Egyptian Soldiers sent to kill all Hebrew baby boys, by Pharaoh of Egypt.  She takes a basket and makes a boat of it, puts the baby in and sets it afloat on the River Nile, with all of the hazards of that river(animals, boats, floating debris, wakes, reeds, people, even soldiers on boats).  Baby floats directly to Pharaoh’s sister who is bathing by the river, she takes the Hebrew male baby, even though it is know that this baby is on the river to escape Pharaoh’s decree.  She raises the Baby in the House of Pharaoh as a prince of Egypt. –Do you see the Hand of GOD in this?  How many times has this baby been saved?  He must have a very important job to do that the MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE, should bless, protect and teach this infant which turns into a man running away from Pharaoh who has been like the man’s his father. With all of this, Moses is only just starting on his training and job.

Moses’s first main job, to lead the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt.  This man will bring about the fulfillment of a foretelling By GOD, made nearly 500 years earlier, to man just before dark.  Even with that, it only leads to more difficult tasks and more learning for this man who was the baby, who was saved from the sword in Egypt.  Placed on the Nile by his mother.

There can be no accidents, for any such event would make the future change, and therefore unpredictable except to the one which CONTROLS ALL THINGS, except your choice. {The Choices! ::  Free Will –What is it?}

This is not predestined, because GOD’S knowing what you are going to choose and the results of every choice, it is still YOU making the choices and therefore YOUR outcome. HE just knows what it is.

I have only used one text about the Challenge which appears in various forms recorded by the Prophets, and even in Moses’s Writings. Funny thing about those prophets, . . . .They were sent to explain what we were doing that Angered THE LORD, how to fix it or what was going to happen to us because we did not Consider and Change our ways. Prophets were just THE ALMIGHTY’S sending us teachers, that we might learn to do Righteously and not evil.

This last sounds like a contradiction. It is not. What was recorded in the NAME OF GOD, was not just for them, It was for US to learn, consider and decide the truth of it, then act accordingly.   There are those that will not hear this. We are told only a remnant will return to GOD. For more on this: Why did GOD allow the Holocaust?

Are you still against the LIVING GOD OF ISRAEL, or are you considering taking a more serious look at what HE WANTS? He already knows your choices and actions, you will still make your our outcome(choices and actions)[“Punished by Our Iniquities”] If you perform evil, evil will be your earnings. To be Righteous earns you Righteousness from the LIVING GOD OF ISRAEL.

If you have another god, then answer the challenge of the LIVING GOD OF ISRAEL! HE IS WAITING!

 

Shalom,

 

Yaakov
