Is It Over Yet? — Part 2

On with the evidence:

The Words of the Prophets, all of them(all the words of the LORD) still stand against us. We have a State(Israel), yet we do not concern ourselves with HIS Covenant. We make deals with every enemy around us and even those on the other side of the earth from us, because we do not accept HIM or HIS WORD. Always we are worried about what the others will think. In Jerusalem, any version of any religion is acceptable except Judaism, even in the Old City. This in HIS HOLY CITY? (Always against the other Jew that does not look like us, speak like us, dress like us, go to the same shul as us, follow a different Shephard(Rabbi) than I do, . . . . What about the GOD of Abraham, GOD of Isaac, GOD of Jacob? Why won’t you listen to HIM? )

Let us try a sample from a prophet. So how do we stack up against, say Jeremiah 11:
2 ‘Hear ye the words of this covenant, and speak unto the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem; 3 and say thou unto them: Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: Cursed be the man that heareth not the words of this covenant, 4 which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the iron furnace, saying: Hearken to My voice, and do them, according to all which I command you; so shall ye be My people, and I will be your God; 5 that I may establish the oath which I swore unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as at this day.’ Then answered I, and said: ‘Amen, O LORD.’

6 And the LORD said unto me: ‘Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying: Hear ye the words of this covenant, and do them. 7 For I earnestly forewarned your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, forewarning betimes and often, saying: Hearken to My voice. 8 Yet they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the stubbornness of their evil heart; therefore I brought upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do, but they did them not.’ . . . . . [So that was the warning: “Hearken to My voice” Exodus
We were warned! But, we have not taken to heart what we must change in ourselves.]

So, are we going to be severely punished again? . . . .YES!
Why? In all of out troubles we have not changed our hearts nor our actions. We haven’t.
What does that mean: Hearts or actions? Before, during and after, we were at the Mountain on the plain of Sinai, and the Noise and Smoke and the Lightings, we said: “that the LORD hath spoken we will do.’” and then: did not act according to our word.

If you go to shul, you know what is said about our traditions and our sagas, they have saved us. –WRONG!!! The ALMIGHTY saved us again. It is those traditions and other things that keep us from the ALMIGHTY. We have not performed that which will save us, heal us, protect us, will make us a Nation Of Priest. You say “how can you know that we are not already a nation of priest?” . Well, besides what I have already written here, let us look at what The Lord GOD put in the mouths of Ezekiel and Jeremiah.

Ezekiel 14:
21 For thus saith the Lord GOD: How much more when I send My four sore judgments against Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the evil beasts, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast.
22 And, behold, though there be left a remnant therein that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters; behold, when they come forth unto you, and ye see their way and their doings, then ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it;
23 and they shall comfort you, when ye see their way and their doings, and ye shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord GOD.

Jeremiah 3:
6 And the LORD said unto me in the days of Josiah the king: ‘Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel did? she went up upon every high mountain and under every leafy tree, and there played the harlot.
7 And I said: After she hath done all these things, she will return unto me; but she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.
8 And I saw, when, forasmuch as backsliding Israel had committed adultery, I had put her away and given her a bill of divorcement, that yet treacherous Judah her sister feared not; but she also went and played the harlot;
9 and it came to pass through the lightness of her harlotry, that the land was polluted, and she committed adultery with stones and with stocks;
10 and yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not returned unto Me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD–
11 even the LORD said unto me–backsliding Israel hath proved herself more righteous than treacherous Judah.

There is much more in the Torah and the Tanakh. More about our failures. More about being called to return, but this makes me sick inside, to know that walking through Israel in 2015, reading the news in and out of Israel, listening and and talking to people, I know that this is all TRUE.

We have the Land, but we have not changed. We are minimal injured by those around us, we think we are great. We have so many blessings, we say what ever I do it’s ok.
Yet, the GOD Of Our Fathers, gave us so many reasons to return, and where are You?

It is not Over Yet! With all that we have been through in Three thousand Nine Hundred Years, we still think we are okay. You should really rethink your outcome, your relationship with The LORD and HIS LAW. Get to work on fixing it now, for the last events are upon us.

A Remnant will return, will you be one of them? I plan to be one, and I would love to see you there.

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.’)
