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!
Excellent article, Mike, and thank you very much. May you speedily recover your health.
I came to similar conclusions probably only a few years ago. My latest thoughts concern the idea that we are created, unique in all the Universe, as “containers”, vessels, utilities or instruments for the purpose of internalizing the Torah.
Whatever life there may be elsewhere, certainly here on the earth, we are unique in this one spectacular sense.
Whether they be canaries, cattle or crawdads, they are hard-wired. We live with and communicate with dogs and cats, but only incompletely and with difficulty. We are just not the same.
But, we DO communicate with Yah, like it or not.
Are not the angles interested in our affairs? Why would they be unless we were so different from them in this particular trait?
It was by means of Torah that the creation was established. Messiah is Torah incarnate. Are we not to be temples of the Holy Spirit? Was not the tabernacle so filled with Yah at its inauguration that Moses could not enter? Please correct me if and where I am wrong, but I trust you get the gist of my point.
Often I use the negative to better understand something otherwise challenging or even difficult to comprehend, probably because the matter at hand is sometimes really too simple.
It occurred to me that the perfect negative is illustrated in Zechariah ch.5:
A Woman in a Basket
5 Then the angel who was talking with me came forward and said, “Look up and see what’s coming.”
6 “What is it?” I asked.
He replied, “It is a basket for measuring grain,[b] and it’s filled with the sins[c] of everyone throughout the land.”
7 Then the heavy lead cover was lifted off the basket, and there was a woman sitting inside it. 8 The angel said, “The woman’s name is Wickedness,” and he pushed her back into the basket and closed the heavy lid again.
9 Then I looked up and saw two women flying toward us, gliding on the wind. They had wings like a stork, and they picked up the basket and flew into the sky.
10 “Where are they taking the basket?” I asked the angel.
11 He replied, “To the land of Babylonia,[d] where they will build a temple for the basket. And when the temple is ready, they will set the basket there on its pedestal.”
5:2 Hebrew 20 cubits [9.2 meters] long and 10 cubits [4.6 meters] wide.
5:6a Hebrew an ephah [20 quarts or 22 liters]; also in 5:7, 8, 9, 10, 11.
5:6b As in Greek version; Hebrew reads the appearance.
5:11 Hebrew the land of Shinar.
New Living Translation (NLT)
So then, we as containers, vessels, instruments of utilities, can be the bearers internally (with, of course, its inevitable external expression (by their fruits ye shall know them) of either good or evil, Torah-present or Torah-absent.
I am getting better, I went to a naturapath, and we discovered that I have fat malabsorbtion and vitamin deficiency and this is what caused the heart attack, the medical profession missed this, their treatments would probably have killed me.
Yes the treasures are in earthen vessels, We are cups, that may run over, or be empry or be full of corrptionj.
All this Yah centred knowledge has been lost, obfuscated and hidden behind endless layers of religiosity. As a viceral reaction to the three days and three nights of Yahushua, Satan built upon the ‘religions’ of Babylon to create the Romanism of Constantine and its spinoffs with no Torah, the desert religion of Arabia and the worship of the Prophet with no bible, and the nihilist religion of the west and its worship of Darwinian ‘scientific’ mythology with no Yah,
With these 3 mantraps satan has ensnared the vast proportion of humanity in a self spoiling and pungent pig-sty, the leaving of which takes a huge leap of faith…..
