A Child Of GOD, Meaning?

During our lives we will and have heard that phrase “Child of God” many times and from various sources. But, to quote from the “Princess Bride” movie:

[Vizzini has just cut the rope The Dread Pirate Roberts is climbing.] Vizzini: HE DIDN’T FALL? INCONCEIVABLE. Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. {From imdb.com: quotes}

The point is: We often use words and phrases which sound good, without thinking about the meaning or consequence of such words. So let us look at the meaning of this “Child Of God”, for […]

Why Are Most Of Us Worse Than The Pharaoh in the Exodus?

Why are most of us are worse than, the Pharaoh in the Exodus Story?

We spend our lives, not learning what is really important. That GOD is; also that Your soul, which is more valuable that anything you can desire, is yours to save or lose.

The Hebrews were out of Egypt in a few months of the LORD sending Moses and Aaron, which came, and said unto Pharaoh:, ‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: Let My people go, that they may hold a feast unto Me in the wilderness.’ “Exodus 5:1”

Yes! Most are worse than Pharaoh, […]

Who Thinks They Can Study With Me?

Do you think you are knowledgeable about the Tanakh?

How about the written TORAH?

For me to help others to learn, is great. I really enjoy teaching those that want the Truth. Those that ask intelligent questions, even from a child. The last seem to grasp what is Written and then able to ask better questions than most adults or religious leaders I have ever met.

In a way this is great, for children are most inquisitive and if treated to direct answers and discussion, they can be very fast learners.

But, the Study I am looking for are with […]

Are You Saying That, We Caused The Evil That Happened To Us?

Are You Saying That We Caused The Evil That Happened To Us?

The Holocaust is Our FAULT?

My response is: “Well, . . . . I have to say that it looks that way according to the Word of The MOST HIGH via HIS Prophets. Yes!”

So, Are you ready for the next one? It is here, if you look, you can see it happening.

Our history, even that of the last 200 years, bears out the punishments and salvations.

This is how too many conversations go, when I suggest that we(Jews), could and will end the worlds trouble.

(Deuteronomy […]

Understanding What Is Coming - Revised 20170118

Are you trying to understand what is coming? Will you understand before it is to late?

Looking around the world, at the people, the news, the behavior of: countries, people, the left, the right, the . . . . , well there is a lot to think about.

Yes, I know, I put people in twice. It is about the people. About how everyone of us deals with each other. Whether or not an individual person returns to the ALMIGHTY; prior to having no time, no ability to change even if they still had a choice. Understand that you must […]

My Entry 20160627

It is observed that, we(most people of the earth), are willing to take anything EXCEPT the Written TORAH by the Hand of Moses, as justification for personal actions.

Even the Rabbinic version and use of the word “Torah”, which their definition has been and continues to be: “All Jewish writing”. Which is then given equal or greater validity to that of: Written TORAH in the Scroll, carried in most Shuls on Shabbat with reverence; treated with pomp and circumstance; which contains no vowels; and has not changed for 3500 years.

Not even one letter is allowed to be wrong. When […]

To Be Of The Children Or Israel --Deeper, much deeper

So what does it mean, to be of the Children Of Israel? Where did the name come from?

As always, I highly recommend reading the full chapter of every reference I make. Actually, you should do that, for anything you are ready to believe, from any source. Check the references. If they are telling you the truth, they won’t mind.

I notice that “names” are very important in the TaNaKh (Acronym of Written Torah (Ta=Law), Nevi’im (Na=Prophets) and Ketuvim (Kh=Writings), what non-Jews call the Old Testament.). There are many discussions about the NAME of GOD, or about Abram which became […]

To Be Of The Children Of Israel

So what does it mean to be of the Children Of Israel? Where did the name come from?

First use of the Name: ISRAEL.

Jacob receives a blessing after an all night struggle with a messenger of GOD. Who gives Jacob a new name in order to be set free before dawn. (Genesis 32:25 .. 29; and restated by The LORD in Genesis 35:10)

In “Genesis 32:29 . . . . no more Jacob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with God and with men, and hast prevailed.”

Like so many things there are multiple means, it is uses and […]

Are You Ready?

On Shabbat, while studying Exodus 2:23..25, there was something I became aware of, “the need to be ready”. Not like Are you ready for the return?; or Are your ready to be saved?; but more of a “When will We be ready to consider those questions?”

Here is the text that brought this to mind:

“Exodus 2:23 And it came to pass in the course of those many days that the king of Egypt died; and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the […]

A Question Of Timing

Recently, I heard a Rabbi say that a young man asked him? If God is so powerful why did creation take six days instead of one?

The answer is Timing!

Everything must happen when it is right to do so. For example: An infant 3 hours after birth cannot be a opera star, or at six hours after birth. Reason: the mouth, throat, teeth, lungs, muscle control, size and shape of the parts will change by the hour. So if you like the voice at hour six, by the time the baby had a nap, everything would be wrong and […]
