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 […]

The TORAH, Written By The Hand Of Moses

The TORAH, Written by the Hand of Moses, dictated the Living GOD of Israel, is Real or TRUE.

That is where we start this article, accepting that statement as FACT. For our purposes here, we will not go into the old arguments. If you are not able to accept that, then what is said here you will be unable to comprehend. Stop reading here. Read something else. How about: “You Should Know and Understand This:”

Still here? Good.

The rest of this article is about the Written TORAH of Moses along with the balance of the TANAKH(Old Testament). It is […]

What Am I?

There is a story about two pockets each with a note. From wikipedia entry about Simcha_Bunim_of _Pershischa: I use this entry “One of the more famous oral teachings attributed to Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Peschischa goes as follows: Everyone must have two pockets, with a note in each pocket, so that he or she can reach into the one or the other, depending on the need. When feeling lowly and depressed, discouraged or disconsolate, one should reach into the right pocket, and, there, find the words: “For my sake was the world created.” But when feeling high and mighty one […]

Acceptance Of Evidence

This is a troublesome topic for most people. What we have been taught up to this point in our life maybe in serious jeopardy(definition: in danger of loss, harm or failure). I defined the word jeopardy because, it is appropriate for the following reasons:

Danger of Loss: the loss of friends, associates and society.

Danger of Harm: because of those losses, you are more easily harmed by others.

Danger of Failure: of giving in to pressure from the other two, thereby losing everything for fear of losing the others and then your soul.

Why your soul? The purpose of life […]


Our Father

Is there evidence that The Master of the Universe, Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, is OUR FATHER?

We have a few pieces of evidence to give us our answer. Working backwards we have:

First, in the Prophets we have Us referring to HIM as our Father, and we have HIM saying that we will call HIM, “My Father”, in these

Jeremiah 3:4 Didst thou not just now cry unto Me: ‘My father, Thou art the friend of my youth.

Jeremiah 3:19 But I said: ‘How would I put thee among the sons, and give thee a […]

Understanding What Is Coming

Understanding what is coming, but will you get it too late?

Looking around the world, at 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. How everyone of us deal 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. We, everyone of us, will face The LIVING GOD OF ISRAEL. Yet, […]

Honor Your Father and Your Mother

Honor your father/mother!

This is One of the sayings, A part of the Covenant, Exodus 20:11, and held up to day by those wanting you to just do what I want. It has become a major control function by those not deserving what they demand. With all of the manipulation involved in this command, how does the LORD

Does Commandment Five really mean that? Does it really mean that you are to be a slave you parent?

NO! That is not what is intended. You are not to be a slave to you parents. BUT. . . .you are to […]

A Strange Thing Happened

Originally written 20150820.

A strange thing happened yesterday. I went for a walk to see more of Jerusalem and found myself back to the Old City and to the area of the Wall. It was very hot again with very few people in the area. I turned around went the 4km back to where I am staying, to cool off a do some writing.

Later, at 20:00 (8:00p.m.) I went out to see about getting food and to just enjoy the cool of the evening. This means that I intentionally did not take a camera, computer, smart phone, digital notebook, […]
