Quoting Mark Twain, "A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds... a silent mournful expanse.... a desolation.... we never saw a human being on the whole route.... hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country." Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain
Mark Twain actually blames Muslim rule for how he saw the land and what had been done to it. Obviously, Twain's remarks were based on his Christian understanding of the Bible. He possibly did not know about Emperor Hadrian's renaming the land Philistia [Palestine] after wiping Israel off of the land in the year 136 A.D. [I appreciated the following post when doing a bit of research: click here]
Exodus 34:10 And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which you are shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with you.
I was reading Leviticus 25 concerning how Israel was taught to treat one another during difficult times. Of course this chapter introduces the Shemittah and Jubilee year as well. I continue to be amazed at how ABBA set this people apart and how they were to teach one another HIS ways.
Deuteronomy 32:7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you.
Job 8:8 For inquire, I pray you, of the former age, and prepare yourself to the search of their fathers:
Imagine for a moment the God of creation teaching the Jews his ways! Really, really think about this....I mean really really really, THINK About this. If you took a moment to think about it realize Exodus 34:10 one more time. ABBA said, "I MAKE A COVENANT" Now think for a moment the God of creation, obligatory to Israel. Who are we to even for a millisecond challenge his obligation to Israel?
In fact, in reading about Israel, understanding what YeHoVaH is accomplishing through this people amazingly continues to BLOW my mind! Going back to what was the beginning of this nation is like looking at the God of Israel face to face. I am looking at so many differing miracles performed via Israel it simply is astounding and yet ......click here http://www.hearnow.org/caljp.html
We continue to misunderstand what ABBA is bringing forth.
The Christian community does not see certain facts nor do we live according to what Leviticus 25 commanded. We are not set apart in the way that Israel was set apart...We have a brutal history of killing the Jews. Yet, our Messiah was one of them, the Disciples were all Jews, the prophets were supportive of the God of Israel. The Jews, not the Christians walked through the Red (Reid) Sea. How do we now defend our Christians heritage without reverencing the Jews? How is this possible? They taught to us everything. Ever time a Gentile Christian opens up any Bible anywhere on this earth they prove God's relationship to His people. We are the ones grafted in......who then killed millions of the Jews and did so for centuries!
Sadly, and I do mean sadly, we listen to what we have been taught about our Jewish brothers, and sister from those who slaughtered millions of the people of Israel, We have incorporated the lies of our forefathers against the Jews. This is so ingrained that at the mere mention of the word "Law" many Christians recoil and most repeat what we have been taught, "We are no longer under the Law but saved by Grace"
I understand this mentality, I lived it until ABBA showed to me that this was incorrect and horrific to his Throne. It was always wrong and it will have consequence.
The Church did not cross the Red Sea nor was it the catalyst for the following:
- Write the Bible
- Raise Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
- Present to the world Moses [A Hebrew]
- Produce a country for Messiah to be born [In flesh]within
- Produce the Messiah through a Hebrew heritage ['He was Jewish for a kazillion reasons!']
- Raise him as a babe [In a Jewish Family]
- Learn from him the ways of the Father [Within a Jewish family]
- Provide him with 12 Jewish disciples [All Jews]
- Raise him up from death in Israel [among the Jews]
- Receive the Holy Spirit.
Our savior is not coming back to Vatican City or the Crystal Cathedral. He is returning to Israel.....Certainly not by any means possible with a "Saddleback" mentality!
He never fulfilled the law in the way that Christianity has interpreted, NEVER! Please, for this New Year among Gentile people "Return to the Beginning"
