Moving Away From Humanity via Allah

I have watched countless videos of people being butchered throughout the Middle East well over the last twenty years of my life. During Saddam Hussein's nightmarish reign I watched a video of young boys, blind folded being forced to walk off of roof tops several stories high. More recently, I have seen headless children, headless babies even, as well as people burned alive. Watching children carry around the heads of murdered men as a sort of macabre badge of honor due to Islamic justice is common place. Moreover, many of us have watched video upon video of children being trained to hate people in particularly, Jewish people in a classroom setting, We no longer have to imagine schools teaching children to glorify the taking of life, those videos exist too!

The harsh reality is that the videos are recording the murder of people.

Just this morning I watched a video of a young man surrounded by ISIS fighters declaring, "A Black Flag will fly over the White House!" In the video this young kid declares that Allah is the reason ISIS has won so many battles and Allah will help us defeat Australia, Great Britain, and America!

Skip Moen wrote, "The further we are from God, the less human we become." It's an interesting statement of which I agree. However, the god of Islam according to ISIS empowers what they are doing. Of course, anyone who understands Ancient Near Eastern Law, knows that ISIS is following many of the dictates prescribed in ancient law perverted by a madman!

Nevertheless, mankind whether following Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism or any religious system have historical failures when it comes to honoring life.

I watched the following video this morning thinking, "What an amazing creation we are when life is honored".....So far Allah, [and for well beyond the last twenty years of my life] does not teach the following to ISIS at all.

I watch a lot more of these videos because, "People are amazing" when we turn on the light!

Genesis 1:3 And God said: 'Let there be light.' And there was light.

The best part of being human is not death.

A Pharisee and a Pastor discuss the Bible

The Pharisee asks a question.
The Pastor opens the Bible reciting a scripture in response.
The Pharisee asks another question.
The Pastor again, opens the Bible and recites a scripture.
This exchange happens for about 20 minutes.
Finally, the Pastor asks, "Why are you continuing to ask me questions, I have answered all of them?"

The Pharisee response:

Sir, I have asked you several questions to which you repeatedly opened the scriptures that my ancestors recorded in order to answer my questions. The answers you provided are culturally disconnected from the questions, it is obvious that you have no concept of Hebrew thought! I am trying to understand the foundation of Christianity as it uses our scriptures when searching for answers?  How is it that Christianity separated itself from Israel and yet uses our material, gifted to us from God in order to exist at all? Jesus was, after all Jewish and would have followed every word of Moses, who was also Jewish. I continue to be perplexed as to how your church came into being?

[the information contained in this teaching by Skip Moen 
was well known to me before I ever heard of Dr. Skip Moen]

I created this conversation in my head because...How we understand just about everything is from a Western, Roman/Greek perspective...Not one word of the entire Bible is based on either concepts whether Roman or Greek.........
The Bible is Hebrew or Hebraic which factually is in direct opposition to much of Western Theology
Rabbinic Judaism did not exist at the time of Shaul, a Pharisee of Pharisees.

Acts 22:3 “I was raised in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and I was instructed perfectly in the tradition of our fathers, and I am zealous for God, as also are all of you.”
Dr. Skip Moen helps us to better understand the Pharisee!

Concerning Skip Moen?

I have listened to several of Dr. Moen's lectures, watched several video presentations, read two of his books, and have consistently followed his "Today's Word" found on his website

Okay, so the entire rational for this blog, my website, my radio broadcast, notwithstanding  virtually everything that has occurred during the last, [nearly 9 years of life] Dr. Skip Moen is arc wielding the dots together!

I have consistently said, I do not see the Bible from a Christian lens anymore. How that happened is truly amazing! Nevertheless, I have for as many years been trying to comprehend exactly what happened? One moment I was a New Testament believer and the next I was.....? In a nano second I saw everything different. Simply put, I see religion, all religion as a prison of sorts. Through the articulation of Dr. Moen, his ever present encouragement to embrace, 'Critical Thinking' once again, I am learning to undo Rome! I am beginning to understand the paradigm shift. After which and prior to knowing that Skip Moen and I were alive at the same time, Mark Biltz, along with so many others presented the Bible to me from an Hebraic perspective which made so much sense to me. It was like having "darkly" removed!.I have never questioned this transformation rather, I have been trying to truly take it all in

This blog is my way of keeping my sanity as a result:
I have felt just like Dryfus many, many times over the last nine years!
I know, completely, absolutely and without hesitation, 
that mankind has no idea of the Paradigm Shift that will occur!

Let me restate the obvious (or not so obvious) The Bible was not written to the Church! Nor was the Bible written to you or me. Once a person comprehends the significance, dare I say, reality of this fact, returning to what is actually happening based on the scriptures becomes a ride like no other in living water!

Having Skip Moen come to Tacoma, Washington in order to share more so (with you) what he offers becomes for me something to do. I completely, totally live and breath to do something for the Kingdom of God...Doing Nothing Means, Nothing Get's Done!

From Skip's website he offers the following for purchase. Of course I am going to promote his work!

Change Has Come to America!

I do not have a source for this picture. This was sent to me via email

In 2008 I went before Abba, Father in prayer asking, "Who is he my Lord?" Through the course of a few days I understood Barack Obama to be a judgement of God due to the lawlessness of America. We have been appointed a ruler who does not know or fear, "I AM" My concern is not Barack Obama but rather, what God is allowing to happen within the "Christian Nation"

"Paradigm Shift" A conference with Skip Moen PhD.

Hello everyone,

The Jeff Morton Report in cooperation with Grapes2press, LLC is making preparation to have Skip Moen, PhD return to the Pacific NW in order to share his years of biblical research and study. Skip is originally from the Seattle area. 

I have received emails from folks as far away as Salem, Oregon who would make the trip in order to attend this conference

We have a facility available which holds about 120 people comfortably but I fear this may not be large enough. Hoping those of you receiving this email may have some ideas on a larger facility that can accommodate 200 to possibly 250 people that does not break the bank. The tentative date based on Skip's availability for the weekend conference is February 12-14. 

The conference has a cost associated with attending, a pre-registration sign up via my website, jeffsmorton.com is in the works. 
Pre-registration helps us with the overall cost.

This is a new area concerning anything that I have ever done but, so what! 
My good friend Nathan Grapes owner of Grapes2Press, LLC and I are always looking to serve people and to keep learning from others about our coming King. Skip Moen offers a brilliant conversation concerning paradigm shifts in our way of learning. Seems to be a lot of this going on as our Great God continues to return us to his ways.

We are looking for support and your participation in order to make this work......

Thank you!
