Shauvot

Today is Shauvot; Pentecost if you will – The day Yah gave Torah, the day the elders of Israel rejected the direct one-to-one relationship offered by Yah and chose instead a relationship through Mosaic Law.

It was also the day where the Apostles gathered together received the tongues of flame.    The signal of the end of the temple relationship and the renewal of the direct (Abrahamic) relationship.

It is important to understand here what is happening, I have written of mount Horeb before; the rejection of Yah, the Mosaic relationship and Law, the renewed covenant through Yahushua and his sign of Jonah.

Then we have Pentecost, to each a small burning bush, and to each a duty to liberate, to take the people out of the pig sty (Egypt) and to show them a better way.

We ARE part of Yah’s Creation, and there is a place in Creation for each of us.   It is our decision whether we take that place by complying with the Laws of Creation (Torah), or whether we reject them and go our own way thus giving up our place in Yah’s Creation.

It is our own choice and only we can make it.   To be of Yah or to be of ourselves.

Unfortunately, the Way to that decision is obscure, we have to actively seek it, we read the scriptures, we listen to others, we compare them, we accept that which is scriptural and reject that which is not.

We learn discernment, we learn to sift out the lies and the fabrications, there are many deceitful traders in the temple courtyard who will sell us their doctrines, but we must be wary, one cannot buy a place in Creation, we have to be humble and to follow the Way, seek the Truth and only then can we start to live the Life.

There are many traders in the temple courtyard, each claiming to know the way, each one wanting our money.    But there is no easy ticket.    Yah has His own ways of sustaining His servants and it is not with a ‘donate’ button.

Creation is Truth, and Truth is Creation, when we find Truth so we find Yah’s Creation is there too.

We must personally strive to take our allotted place within Yah’s Creation, to become at one with it.   It is our decision, our effort and our prize, we cannot share it.    We can tell others, but unless they act upon it in their own free will, it is of no value and will not succeed.

 

Jonah

Jonah was running away from Yah, he thought Yah was limited in power and that he, Jonah, could outwit Him, by travelling in the opposite direction.

Then the three days and three nights caught up with him.

Yah took charge and Jonah had no say.

In the fishes belly he has an epiphany, he considers himself as dead, and, when spat out, albeit grudgingly, He bends the knee and does what Yah requires of him.

Yahushua did NOT die on the cross for our sins, Torah is quite capable of taking care of our sins, if we first acknowledge them.   But it is Jonah’s 3 days and 3 nights that Yahushua tells the pharisees is what it is all about.

Yahushua’s 3 days and 3 nights are what really matters to us too, it is that coming to obedience where we too must stop running as did Jonah, and we too must understand that doing things according to our own knowledge is not in HARMONY with Yah’s Creation.    Yah did the impossible for 3 days and 3 nights.

We too need that same Epiphany that Jonah had under pretty dire circumstances in his case, so that we too can become loyal servants of the Most High, and servants can become sons, but they must become servants first.

I can compare Yah’s Creation to the Royal Navy, I was trained for 3 years before I was considered qualified to drive a ship, much of the training taught me how to act in harmony with other ships, each with different crews, maybe different nationalities, and with different roles.  I had to learn to do things the Navy way not my way.   There was the Navy Way and the wrong way; if one does things the wrong way the Navy fragments because the desired common purpose becomes several dozen personal purposes which lose sight of the goal. We need our 3 days and 3 nights so that we too can qualify to become a servant of Yah and do His will not our own.

Yah made it easy for Jonah, but He still needed Jonah to go to Nineveh to be the catalyst for His works there .

Do I need 3 days and 3 nights in a fishes’ belly before I am prepared to humble myself and subjugate my knowledge of good and bad to that of Yah!

Lies

There is a truth, because truth was created by Yah, and His creation is the one sole Truth in this universe of ours

When man became a god by gaining his own perspective on Yah’s Creation, he sought to bend Yah’s Creation to that perspective, but he found that to do this he must lie:-

“She did it, the woman that you gave me”

This was the first lie, and thus was the first religion born.

Religion happens when man (or a fallen angel) seeks to turn his own perspective on creation into his ‘truth’, and to then pervert the appearance of Yah’s Creation to fit that ‘truth’.

So Karl Marx had a vision which he described in his writings, Lenin, Stalin and Mao tried to turn the Marxian vision into communist ‘truth’ and many illions died because it was not Creation compliant.

It is very easy to reject men’s visions, and, like Marx, think that by rejecting religion, one is rejecting Yah and His Truth.    Walking away from Christianity of Judaism changes nothing; what one must realize is that these religions are spring boards from partial truths such that the seeker may use them to explore Yah’s Truths.

If we look at the ‘church’ in the Acts of the Apostles, it is very different to the churches we find today this is because Christianity is mainly based upon the political religion founded upon the political needs of the Roman emperor Constantine.    Contantine and his creation did however preserve much of the ancient writings even if in Greek or Latin forms.

Modern Christianity still includes many of the compromises that Constantine had to make in order for his new religion to become universally acceptable through his empire, and although the scriptures have been available to us for hundreds of years, few really look at what they tell us about Yah as opposed to what church leaders tell us they say about Yah.

Many church leaders are more interested in monetizing their faith, they get a revelation and they then try and sell it to whoever will listen (and hopefully pay).

When the temple was destroyed, Judaism had to be reworked and jobs had to be found for the now unemployed temple workforce.   This is when the ‘rabbi’ (elevated one) and the ‘sage’ (wise one) appeared, and they usurped the earthly assemblies by ring fencing the word of Yah in their traditions and writings.

Most Jews and Christians do not read an follow the scriptures for themselves, they have a layer of ‘religious’ experts to do it for them (for a price).

If you wear a big black hat and a crucifix, and follow the rules, then you are righteous and your salvation is assured, no need to find out what actually Yah says, we have already done that for you!, no need to keep His commandments, just do what we, the leaders of the religion say, pay your dues and the keys of the kingdom are all yours.

(Make the cheques payable to me personally)

Want to be a millionaire, start a new religion……

This is the pigsty we must leave behind, and it is only when we humble ourselves to Yah as servants, can he send His servants to meet us from afar and guide us home, if we refuse to listen to the servants because we still believe we are ‘sons’ then we cannot progress.

Life on the other side.

In the beginning Yah Created…..

But what if you do not accept this premise, what if you see it as a myth, a flying spaghetti monster – the opiate of the people.

Many people see religion as ridiculous, and I quite agree with them, BUT! The book of Genesis is not religion, for religion is what men and women do when, instead of seeking truth,  they seek to exploit, and to monetize a belief system.   Religion is about selling a product, a feeling of belonging; if we all do the same things in the same way, then we can prosper together (and earn a good living for the priest or rabbi at the same time).

I can (and do) utterly reject religion, ritual has no place in my life, I seek first the Kingdom of Yah and His righteousness.    But what if I believe that Karl Marx was my saviour?   What if I obey the dictats of the humanist society, what if I really believe that ‘socialism’ is the real truth, the real answer.

All these things provide me with input, and I mould myself around them.

But are they beneficial?

Socialism, communism and their close ally Nazism have proven themselves to be vicious regimes that regard human life as animalistic and expendable, they are political religions where the ends justify the means (including the extermination of Yah’s people),   Then there are those who believe in Popes and Prophets, theirs is a form of religion with no heavenly power; the central role is usurped by a man (or men) dead or alive.

The civilized world as we know it was the direct product of people believing in the 10 commandments and putting them into effect, at the root of this belief was a confidence that the Genesis account, or something very similar had to have happened.

Then along came ‘evolution’ and the idea that there was no creation event and that we are the product of some fuzzy mechanism where monkeys turn into humans, and that this is consensus ‘science’ and cannot be criticized or contradicted.

So, we are just animals, we can do what we like, when we like, and as long as we don’t infuriate or provoke those with ‘influence’ or ‘strength’ enough to damage us, we can live an animal life without care.

But all around us is the product of our forefather’s efforts to live according to Yah’s rules not man’s.    The civilization that protects and nurtures the humanist social justice warriors and enables them to spout their filth was built by those very ‘white supremacists’ that they so despise.   So what is going to happen when they destroy their own foundations?

They sit on the branch of a tree whilst scattering poison around its roots, and then wonder why it all comes crashing down, each time, they believe it will be different, each time it brings death and destruction, not the utopias of their dreams.

We each one of us have a choice, we can seek to do things man’s way (I did it my way….) and come up against the guile of Satan from which we have no protection, or we can worship Satan direct, and reap the short term benefits and be cast, with him, into the lake of fire.

Or we can seek to live the way we were so created to live, and as part of Creation, working with His Creation not against it! and listening to its healing and beneficial message of LIFE!

 

Moi

Do I, moi, myself, throw MY godship in Yah’s face?

Surely not, the commandment forbids it; Thou shalt have no other gods before me (literally, in my face).

Yah does not need me, His purposes will be fulfilled whatever I do or don’t do, say or don’t say, I am irrelevant to the purposes of Yah.

But I am a part of His Creation, He is the Creator and I am of no consequence to His Creation, BUT, my words and actions can either be part of His Creation or apart from His creation, and this is incredibly important to understand.

Everything that I do and say outside of His Creation is as filthy rags (literally used sanitary towels), if I do and speak within the bounds of His Creation then I speak with His truth which is of great benefit to me.

Adam was thrown out of His Creation because he threw his own newly aquired godship in Yah’s face; “she did it, the woman that YOU gave me”.

If I decide to go out and preach a sermon, say, on the evils of smoking, and I tell smokers that God will curse them, then whose knowledge am I using?

It is not in the scriptures, and it just reflects a current view of the society in which I live, now I don’t know if Yah has a problem with smoking or not, but he certainly has a problem with me putting my words into His ‘mouth’.

Much of mainstream Christianity is currently (and in the past) cursing Israel and the Jews, and actively supporting the Palestinian (Amalekite) cause.   Why is this?   Is it because they believe that Yah has changed His mind in the matter and now only supports Christians, or is it that, in their opinion, Israel has behaved badly and has taken ‘Palestinian’ land unfairly and that the Abrahamic covenant has, in their view, failed and no longer applies?   If so where does He say this in His scriptures where does he assign an expiry date for this eternal covenant.   This is the spin doctoring of ‘religious’ leaders who value the knowledge of man over that of the Scriptures and Yah.   Religion is man-made, but the Way to the Truth of Yah lies before us, and we must learn to live a Life compliant with His Creation rather than men’s creations.

Most Jews in reality worship Rabbis and happily throw the words of those Rabbis in Yah’s face.   But you know, when, at some stage, I face Yah to account for my words and actions, the Rabbis won’t be there to take the blame for me, they will be having their own problems, and maybe even bigger problems.   Yahushua may well be there, and He will be my advocate before Yah, if I let Him be.   But Yahushua is Torah made flesh and dwelling amongst us, and if I have rejected Torah then I have also rejected my own advocate.

But if I am humble before Yah, and have just a little faith in His Creation and His Covenants then amazing things can happen in my life, and maybe in yours too!

 

Doing my Bit for the Cause.

I always wanted to be up there in the pulpit, amongst the great ‘men of god’ doing my bit for the cause.

Now I know that I am not qualified, I do not carry Yah’s credentials, I am lacking in the things required to live in Eden.

After his encounter with Yahushua, Paul, who had studied Torah all his life, had to spend over 14 years before hitting the road for Yah, and I have nowhere near Paul’s knowledge.

We read, we listen and we learn, we seek Yah as to meanings and we get His revelations.

Many of us get our first revelation and stop, seeking to exploit it for fame and fortune, we go on the preaching circuit,  make money, have a TV show etc. – is this what it is all about?

It is about seeking FIRST the KINGDOM of YAH; that place where Yahovah rules as KING!

My role is to be useful, to study for sonship such that I can be trusted with my father’s business.

I have to learn that my knowledge is of no consequence and that I must learn to operate only within the realm of Yah.

Adam got thrown out of Eden (Yah’s Creation) because he took on his own godship in competition with Yah (“she did it, the woman that You gave me”), my sole job is to qualify for re-entry, and I do this by becoming Creation Compliant.   I learn to look at things through the eyes of the Creator, using His Knowledge of Good and Bad which He will write on my heart (if I let him) replacing the corruption therein, the corruption of my own opinions, my own godship, my own knowledge of good and evil.

Only when I pass my sonship exams to Yah’s satisfaction can I be trusted with the keys of the Kingdom, the truths that open the door to life.

Nothing which is the product of the fall; the product of my godship, the product of my knowledge of good and evil is acceptable to Yah, to enter back into Eden is to leave the pigsty of the me and to take to the Way of Yah, to seek His Truth (His Creation) and regain His Life (in Eden).

 

 

Of Priests and their Rituals

I cannot stress how important it is to seek the truth, particularly the truth of Yah and of His Creation.   We are taught from the cradle to worship man’s creations, edifices and idols and we must put this behind us, we must leave the prodigal’s pig sty and follow the path to the Fathers abode, returning to it in humility as servants willing to subjugate our own godship and serve our father by living in harmony with His household,  to be an obedient part of His Creation.

In Hebrew, sonship is a status rather than a genetic bond, a son is one whom the father can trust implicitly, not only to obey, but to conduct business and make decisions that the father would approve of and on behalf of the father.    A son can be a trusted proxy for the father.

The son who wants his own godship leaves his father’s house and rises or falls in the halls of men.

Religion is something that men make, it is a façade that substitutes men’s rules instead of Yah’s rules, the gaudy (or plain black and white) uniforms with funny hats, this is all about virtue signalling to other men to show how ‘holy’ one is,   it is those who seek to be part of Yah’s Kingdom who are truly set apart.   Yah’s truth seekers glow spiritually, although to men they maybe dowdy and boring.

Religion is just another of men’s pigsties, where men can wallow in the faeces of self worship, inside each of us is a god just waiting to be thrown in Yah’s face, if I am not careful I  put my godship before that of Yah.

At Horeb Yah intended to speak directly to the people, as he had been doing to the patriarchs, but the people refused him and demanded that he speak through Moses only, thus Yah had to set up the temple/tabernacle system as defined by the five books of Moses.

But Abraham had a direct relationship that did not need a temple. But he was deemed righteous even so.

In Galatians 3 Paul uses Abraham as an example not Moses, why, because in three days and three nights Yahushua destroyed the temple, and with it the Mosaic relationship.   From that point on, it is the Abrahamic relationship that Yahushua made work once more, and It is this that is the renewed covenant of Jeremiah, not the worshipping of some bloke dying on a Roman torture device supposedly so that we can sin in safety.

Torah defines sin, and has the built in ability to deal with sin, but the great sin; the rejection of Torah, has to be dealt with by other means.

I was brought up in a none Torah environment of partial belief, one lived in a society whose laws were based on the 10 commandments but deviated from them substantially.    God was ‘worshipped’ in a way that resembled pagan ritual rather than the word of Yah.

It took me a journey of some 50 years to break free of the pigsty and to start living in compliance with Yah’s Creation.    Nobody ever says it is easy, but we need to seek Yah directly for ourselves, we have that same choice, Moses or Abraham, priests and rituals or truth and righteousness.
