Whose Knowledge?

The scriptures make very clear the idea that Adam’s world is very different to Yah’s world; Adam was cast out of Eden and had to build his own ‘world’ by the sweat of his labours.

We are born into Adam’s world, and Yah’s world is alien to us.   We accept the nuances of Adam’s world as ‘Fact’ were, to us, the nuances of Yah’s world are like fictions we read in a book.

That book, the Bible, describes the way Yah sees things, and it is vital to understand this.  

To Yah, Adam’s world is a pigsty, not the physical world as such, but those things in it which are the product of Adam’s sweat and labour.

But to us Adam is home and comfort and all things normal.  

We cannot leave Adam’s pigsty unless we are prepared to completely cut it off from ourselves, not only must we walk away from it, but we have to wash its sticky mess from our body, soul and spirit.

Yah will send his ‘servants’ to assist with this, but we have to be humble, as a servant ourselves, to accept their help.

We cannot drag the pigsty with us, it must be shed, washed off, bit by stinking bit.

It can be painful, that Rabbi we adore, that Pastor we adhere to, they too may be part of the pigsty, and leading people to destruction.

We can go to ‘church’ sing and clap our hands, never understanding that this is getting us nowhere, it is not good enough to live a ‘good’ life by Adam’s standards because we will be judged according to Yah’s standards.

Nobody can lead us out of the pigsty, it is a decision that each of us must make on a personal basis, even if it means leaving everything dear to us behind.

We grow up thinking that there is only one “knowledge of good and evil” but that is wrong, each of us has our own “kofg&e” so there are many millions of them out there, we may choose lo follow the Rambam, but he will not lead us out of the pigsty, he may be virtuous by Adam’s standards, but is he virtuous by Yah’s standards?    Did the word of Yah come from men?

Many of us preach Adam’s sweat and labour, ignorant of the fact that it leads nowhere; the blind leading the blind.   First we must leave the pigsty and start the cleansing process, we must leave Adam’s sweat behind and look for Yah’s Creation in order to become part of it, Yah is unchanging, but we can be changed into His likeness.

Is Might Right or is Yah Right?

We are born into Adam’s world, a world defined by Adam’s (mankind’s) knowledge of good and evil, a world where might is right and where the ends justify the means.

But we each of us have a personal option, which is to leave Adam’s pigsty and follow the pathway back to Yah.

Following the pathway back to Yah entails giving up man’s ways and seeking to do things Yah’s way, the way of His Creation.

When Adam was thrown out of Eden (complete with his own knowledge of good and evil also known as godship) he built an alternative world based upon sin and death.

‘Sin’ is a misleading word, for we simplify it into specific acts, but its real meaning is to fall short of Yah’s required standard; the standard He requires of us to qualify to re-enter His Creation.

As Law breakers we belong in Adam’s world, and Satan, the accuser, will make absolutely sure that no ‘sinners’ escape.

BUT, in 3 days and 3 nights in Hades (after the crucifixion) Yehushua, (Torah made flesh and dwelling amongst us) fought off Satan (somehow) and provided us with a Way back to Yah.

We wear a garment, a robe, which carries on it the stains of our lives; a stain for every time we have violated Torah.   For us to re-enter Eden, this garment must be clean.   It is Yahushua, as Torah made flesh, who provides the laundry service.

Christians believe that they do not need Torah, that it was ‘nailed to the cross’, but it was not Torah that was nailed to the cross, it was our (Adam’s) knowledge of good and evil.   To participate in Yahushua is to participate in Torah because they are one and the same.

Torah was in the beginning, Abraham kept it, the Elders of the children of Israel rejected it at Mt. Horeb, so Moses had to create a substitute based upon a physical ‘Temple’, which lasted until the day of Pentecost, when the tongues of ‘fire’ left the Temple and alighted on the believers.

This is the true message of the scriptures, the rest is religion, a tradition designed to make clerics rich.   We alone are in control of our spiritual destiny, and we will be on our own when we come before Yah, there will be no Rabbis, Priests, Pastors or Vicars to help us, and Yahushua will only shelter those who are not Torah breakers (Doers of iniquity Gr; anomia G458)

To Die is Gain

How can this possibly work?

The physical death in Adam’s creation – is it gain?    Only if we have ‘Salvation’ but in Yah’s creation we are talking of a spiritual ‘death’ – how can this be beneficial?

It can if it means death to my knowledge of good and evil, to my godship.   If I can leave behind my godship and re-establish Yah’s Godship in my life I am in effect dying to self.

Amd in this I definitely gain because I begin to walk the path in accordance with the Torah written upon my heart and become, once more, Creation compliant.

For me to live is Messianic, to die is gain, Paul is talking at both physical and spiritual levels, as one with salvation, the physical life is lived at the behest of Yah and spiritually he has died to self, he has died to his own knowledge of good and evil, he has died to his own godship and has taken on Yah’s Godship in the form of the Torah written upon his heart.

It is all actually very simple, but to understand Paul one has to understand what happened in the Garden of Eden.   When Adam ate of the Fruit, and unlike the woman (Eve/Chava), failed to ‘see’ that he had departed from Yah’s Way, he was changed, he aspired to see himself as a god and started to define good and evil for himself (see Genesis 3 v 22) he is ejected from Yah’s Creation and, in the sweat of his labours, sets up his own creation.

We are born into Adam’s creation, a world built and defined by Adam’s puny knowledge.

This world is a pigsty and we wallow comfortably in our own faeces, spouting death from our mouths.   But we can escape from the  pigsty by humbly accepting the role of servant to Yah, that is, obeying the commandments of Yah rather than making them up as we go along, thus we leave the pigsty and walk the Way.

But we are still covered in the faeces of our own knowledge, we are met from afar by Yah’s servants. And if we are prepared to listen to them in all humility, so we will be cleansed.

Yahs servants are not necessarily ‘human’ but they speak to our heart rather than our mind.   It may not be ‘scientific’ or even ‘rational’ but it is Yah’s truth.

Adam’s creation

The Covid balaghan (Hebrew – imbroglio) seems to fit end times biblical prophesy almost perfectly, and if this time around it is exposed as the malicious hoax it is, then there will be a next, and a next until enough of the people are fooled enough of the time for Satan to take control.

Satan always works to a pattern, persecution of Jews, degrading of women, and an elite having absolute authority over the mass of the people.   Mankind always seems to fall for it.

Why? Because it is the natural way of life in Adam’s world.

When Adam was thrown out of Eden (Yah’s Creation) he proceeded to create his own creation by the sweat of his labours, this is the world of Cain, the city walls being there to keep Yah out.

It was the adoptation of the 10 commandments by protestant Christians that produced the civilization we enjoyed for about a hundred and fifty years.   But that baby got thrown out with the bathwaters of the nineteen sixties, and we have watched the slow disintegration of western society as those things defined by Yah as beneficial were slowly cast aside as religious mythology.

In the beginning Yah Created, and in the end He will judge all of us against the standards set by the ten commandments – all of them including keeping the Sabbath as the seventh day.   Many are going to come before Yah thinking that they have a “get out of Gaol free” card called Jesus Christ.

But that is not the question Yah will ask, He will ask “did you keep my Torah”  – I will answer “NO my Father, I tried and I failed”     At which point my advocate, Yahushua, Torah made flesh and dwelling amongst us, will answer “I will vouch for this good and trusty servant, his footsteps sought My Way, My Truth and My Life.”

Jesus did not die on the cross for my sins, Yehushua spent 3 days and 3 nights in Hades dealing with the Accuser, such that in my judgement before the great White Throne, the Accuser, Satan, has no say.

But many will claim Jesus, the cross and good works, but Yahushua will say “get thee hence, I know you not – You failed to keep Torah (anomia in the Greek – Matt 7 v 21 – 23).

Without Yah and Torah, man reverts to tyranny, and the Satan (humanist) worshipping elite ruling over the people is the norm for Adam’s creation.

Talking with Yah

As a child I was taught to pray, hands together, eyes shut tight, memorized prayers written by other people.   I was not qualified to have a conversation with Yah, somebody had to direct my words in case I said something naughty.

And I must not pray for myself, it must be for other people.

The traditions of men…..

Yah’s word tells us to pray in private, He teaches us to acknowledge Him as Father, and that I can ask anything of our Father.

Religion sets out the rules; prayer meetings, set texts for prayer, supervision.   But Yah wants a dialogue, He wants us to tell him of the things on our hearts, my heart, my individual relationship with my Creator – “Oh Lord won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz” as the song goes.   Really, if you want a Merc, tell him, you might not get a Merc but you will not get a stone either.

I will get what I deserve but only if I trust and rely on Him, as He tells us to all the time, then I too will be fed by the birds.   It is oh so easy to ask of Him, then try to make it happen ourselves, there is a very evil sermon often preached about a man stuck on the roof of his house in a flood, he refuses help because “God is going to rescue him”, he is drowned, and God tells him that He sent the physical rescuers why did he not heed them?

But it does not work that way, the story is wrong on so many levels, it saps my confidence and portrays Yah as a devious huckster and trust and reliance as derisory and foolish, but Yah has made us a promise, if we ask for bread will He give as a stone?

What is important is that we actually ask – please Yah I want to win millions of shekels…..

In asking, I purge my soul, I share my innermost desires with Yah, good or bad, He can then work on them, moulding them into His image and likeness, when I do not share my feelings, He is tied by my free will, when I tell Him in prayer He can set change in motion.

In all my desires, there is a gulf between what I want and what He wants for me, when I express those desires to Him he can fill the gap; I am giving Him my permission to make the changes in me that I cannot make.   If I covet my neighbour’s wife, I need to tell Yah about it so He can fix it not me.

We can try to control our passions, our lusts our wants, but only Yah can modify them into His Good, if we try to do it alone we modify them into Adam’s good which could well be Yah’s Bad.

Joseph

What is the story of Joseph telling us?

A young man, gifted from Yah displays his talents and is rewarded by his Father, but is despised by his envious brothers.

But those brothers are not interested in the enormous benefit that a gift from God can bring to both themselves and the family, they are only aware of his ‘arrogance’ and threat.   It is obvious to them that Jacob will choose him as the heir (and the double portion).    We see this legalized in the ‘mandrake’ incident between Leah and Rachel (we don’t know what a mandrake actually is) but Ruben is the firstborn of Leah and it is something to do with this.

With Joseph gone, then the double portion is up for grabs.

But the gifting of Yah goes with Joseph, it is his, not the family’s, and so it moves to Egypt.

Christians believe that Joseph adumbrates Yahushua, and maybe this is so, ‘Christianity’ moves to Rome after the crucifixion.   So it is in Rome that ‘Christianity’ meets Potiphar’s whorish wife, now who could that be?

Joseph is then gaoled, has he been released yet?   Has he met the butler and the baker?

Has the butler talked to Pharaoh?   Have the brothers come before the elevated Joseph?

The story is incomplete.   Joseph’s stars re-appear in Revelations 12.

As far as I can see, Joseph (the true way of Torah) is still in gaol, and Potiphar’s wife still has the upper hand.

Joseph benefits Egypt exceedingly well, such that his brothers are forced to come and beg. That benefit could have been theirs, but they were not humble enough to accept that Yah (an Jacob their father) had chosen Joseph, the despised little brother. The benefits that Joseph could have brought to the family had come to Egypt instead.

Protecting God

We see the phenomena where people will murder those who ‘offend’ their gods.   Unfortunately there are those who also feel that they have to violently defend Yah and what they deem to be the things of Yah.   This is to gravely misunderstand Yah.

Yah is the Creator, and as such, cannot be attacked in any way by His Creation and those within it, and yes, whilst there is a war going on in Creation, it is a war going on over the hearts and minds of mankind not Yah’s ascendancy.

Satan failed to change Torah in Hades when ‘Torah made flesh’ (Yahushua) was presented to him in death.

Satan strives to turn man away from Yah, and His truth.   He lies, and those who believe satan’s lies are as the blind.   Most of us are in a state of confusion, we want to seek Yah’s truths, but we follow men’s religions rather than seeking truth and taking responsibility for ourselves.

When we truly seek Yah, we must be humble, for He is the teacher and we are the pupil, we must listen out for His lead, we must not ‘do it my way’.

We start with Torah, but not the religious Torah as interpreted by Rabbis, Yah is not interested in funny hats, prayer shawls and tassels.   He is looking for the man or woman who is prepared to have a direct relationship, the relationship that was offered to the elders of the Children of Israel at Mt Horeb.   They rejected that offer, they did not want to take on the responsibility before Yah for their own lives, they preferred to farm it out to Moses.

Moses created a holding pattern, a way of life that could be used as a launch pad for a personal relationship with Yah for those prepared to take the next step.

Yah is quite capable of fighting His own battles and mine if I will let Him.

I have to trust and rely on Yah, not Him on me.

If I am physically, emotionally or verbally violent to another, thinking to protect god’s honour then I do not understand Yah!

Asking Yah

Truth, is things as they really are, as Yah Created them.

Adam uses his knowledge of good and evil to conjure up things as he wants them to be and Religion is adhering to Adam’s ways.

We are born into Adam’s world, the world he created with the sweat of his labours after he was thrown out of Eden.   Because we are born into Adams world, we know no different until we begin to understand the nature of Yah.   Yah always points us away from Adam and towards His Creation, but we have free will, we can follow Yah or follow Adam, the latter is comfortable, the former is not.

Men’s religions are phantasies whereby elements of Adam, and elements of the gods are woven together to provide a carpet for us to walk on, the carpet covers the real floor so that we may never see it unless we are prepared to lift the carpet and look underneath.   There we may find the trapdoor to reality.

The scriptures say that I can ask Yah for anything and that He will provide, He will not give me a stone, but He will provide abundantly.   Religion says that I can only ask Yah to provide for others, not myself, this is Adamic clap-trap, religious nonsense.

Doing ‘good’ for others is probably the single most damaging doctrine the Adamic world has thrown up, if I cannot communicate with Yah, if whole areas of my life with Him are a forbidden conversation, then truth cannot abound.

My children picked up a song from school it went something like “Oh Lord won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz”.   It was seen as heretical, but no!   If we want something, we must ask Yah for it! We must pray, but prayer is a no holds barred dialogue with our Creator.

If I want to be a prophet of a healer, I must ask Yah, If I want to do well in exams, I ask Yah.

If I want money, I ask Yah, but I don’t steal it!   There are many ways to steal money, some, our society does not see as stealing.   Being lazy at work for instance, cheating on taxes for another.

If we are honest with Yah, he will answer prayer and provide for us as he has promised, but honesty means everything, including our little foibles as well as our big ones.

Yah Created us, He knows our private places, our lusts, our desires, our fears better than we do.

Being born into Adam’s world, for the first years of our lives we did childish things, we picked up on our parental vices.   But as we grow out of childhood, we need to have a dialogue with Yah about His Way and Our Ways, for they are different.  We need to talk to Him about ourselves; about our desires.  We can turn to our way and go around in circles, or we can follow His way by asking Him for directions.

We need to pray for ourselves, we need to have open unfettered dialogue with our Creator, we need to allow Him to provide. 

If we cannot pray for ourselves, we cannot move on.

Relationships 102

Torah is voluntary, and within Torah, same sex sexual relationships are as unacceptable as fornication or aadultery, and there is no place within the Toraic society for any who indulge in these practices.

There is also no ‘marriage’ in the scriptures, the act of copulation is, in itself, a contract of marriage in that the male is consenting to support the female and her offspring, and the female is consenting to bear the offspring of the male exclusively.

Contraception has rather stymied this consept, and has presented us with the dilemma of “recreational sex” a.k.a. fornication with no consequences.

Modern contraception is effective but not necessarily infallible, so society has had to accommodate this with abortion (murder) and the problem of single unmarried mothers who cannot support themselves.

Yah orders us to go forth and multiply, humanity says sow your wild oats, we can deal with unintended consequences by violating Yah’s Torah.

There are loving relationships in the scripture, Rebecca, Rachel, Rahab and Ruth spring to mind, but that is the icing on top, the main job of a family is to reproduce and anything that distracts from that is problematic; Jacob’s relationship with Leah obviously fell into this category.

To reproduce with an angelic being is obviously reprehensible, it is the same as bestiality in a way, but it is not sterile as most inter species copulation is, it produces monsters.

This brings us back to Sodom, and we must ask, what Sodomy is all about, is it the breeding of Nephilim or is it about same sex relationships.   My feeling is the former, we know that Yah puts giants to the sword, but although unacceptable in the chosen people, homosexuality does not demand mass extermination as happened in Sodom, Gomorrah and the cities of the plains.

I suspect that Sodomy, the breeding of giants in the scriptures, must be equated with man’s propensity to seek his own Utopia of which he alone is god, and to do this, he believes that the end point will justify any murder and mayhem he uses to achieve his ends – the road to tyranny is paved with the skulls of man’s best intentions…….

It is just a malicious and evil state of mind.

Relationships 101

Sodom’s problem was not Homosexuality as such, it was the desire to breed Nephilim from the angels accompanying Abraham in the rescue of Lot.

So what of the Sodomy in Romans?

We tend to regard homosexuality as ‘immoral’ and it is every bit as immoral as adultery and fornication in that it is an attack om family and the commandment of Yah to go forth and multiply.

But what if Paul is looking at amorality rather than immorality, amorality being the absence of morals rather than immoral being the flouting of morals.

An amoral person discards Torah and claims that Yah’s Creation has no traction in their lives, essentially, that humanity can make its way without Yah and outside of Yah’s creation.

Sodom was destroyed in fire and brimstone, and if one visits the site here in Israel, one can pick that brimstone (sulphur) up off the ground.   The site of Sodom on the dead sea near Masada is one of archaeologies best kept secrets.

In the middle of the video we see the strange shapes of what could well be buildings turned to chemical ash

Yah only destroys nations that dabble in the forbidden craft of ‘giants’ (Nephilim) and the extremes of violence in Tanach are always associated with the worship of Nephilim as in Canaan, Bashan etc.

So was Sodom destroyed because of homosexuality or because the Sodomites desired to breed with the angels accompanying Abraham

Torah deals with homosexuality in the same way as it does adultery and fornication, mass killing is reserved for more egregious pursuits.

In breeding Nephilim one is substituting those Nephilim for Yah and this is not acceptable.   In this day and age we substitute celebrities for Yah, so are celebs the new Nephilim?
