Please do us a favour...
It is easy for us to see where the world is heading when our eyes are open. Despite our constant pleas and warnings, the world of man has always been heading there. Only now it has accelerated, becoming more obvious,
soon it will be plain for all to see.
The world is plunging headlong into death and destruction.
It can be a very painful process accepting the Truth, facing up to reality. What is real? The Truth never changes. Although each individual comes to the Truth in a different way and has their own unique perspective, and even perhaps different words and ways to describe it; if it's the Truth we will be able to agree. The Truth is what it is and not necessarily how we choose to describe it.
In other words, just because I might choose to call a shovel a spoon doesn't mean I will be able to put it in my mouth. A nose by any other name will still smell the same.
Well you might be asking, What is Truth? How can I find what is real in this world of confusion and pretense? First of all you need to have the hunger and thirst. You will dedicate your life to finding it.
You will not settle for anything less. You certainly won't blindly accept anyone elses description of it, not even mine. You will check it out, find out if it is real. You will carefully weigh it against what you Know is the Truth. You will pray for guidance. Sometimes you may be surprised to find the Truth staring you in the face, and a lie in your hand. It is hoped that when you find this happening to you, you will be willing to admit it. It is perfectly all right to change your mind in the light of new evidence.
Most people identify themselves too strongly with what they happen to believe. Even the very presence of Truth will be taken as personally threatening to one who is desperately holding on to a lie. Of course there be few that would consciously clutch a lie, they actually think, believe, hope it's the truth. They will go to great pains even to try to make it be the truth. The more people they convince of it, the more it seems like the truth to their own selves.
If it is real, then you Know that it's the Truth. When you Know Truth you are on the Rock, you have no need to defend your position, there is no reason to take an attack personally. After all the Truth is not your own, you didn't come up with it all by yourself. I have witnessed the most beautiful people turn hateful and attack me with scorn for even so much as lovingly and gently mentioning Truth. Believe me it is not my intention or work to tell anybody what to think, what to believe, or what to do. I simply desire to share with you the understanding I have been given to share with you. The choice is entirely your own. I cannot, and will not make it for you.
Noticing a definite lack of Truth in the world from an early age did not adequately prepare me to withstand the shock of finding the blatant lies I have encountered in my search.
In order to find the Truth it is sometimes helpful to examine the lie.
I have noticed in fact three distinct ways in which to pull off a lie.
The first way is obvious, simply to make a lie sound like the Truth.
The second way is to tell a whole lot of Truth and hide a little lie in it.
The third way is insidious, to represent the Truth in such a way as nobody could possibly believe it.
The Truth has to be all true, no lie is of the Truth.
In the modern world there is a tendency to describe the Truth right out of reality. The individual will usually choose to go along with the most popular description, in varying degrees.
Others will choose to go against the popular description, eventually coming up with their own popular description.... What most people don't seem to realize is that when you go along with, conform to the world, (go with the flow); you are severely limiting your ability to choose. You are then in danger of falling into bondage as a victim to your circumstances, controlled by destiny. Not free but a slave. This is the exact opposite of free will choice. It takes very much determination, effort, diligence, and perseverance to get from disorder to order in this universe.
This is precisely where the free will comes in.
Without it we would give up, wouldn't even try.
As a matter of fact the key to this whole issue is the individuals FREE WILL CHOICE.
The only place to find Truth in this world is in the Word of IaHUeH. The Word made flesh. Real. Even in spite of our translations, interpretations, and other possible tampering, the pure Truth is intact, in the Scriptures. Sad to say, there are some changes and even "additions" to the Truth, which tend to obscure and even distort what is real. I also find it remarkable how much the usage, meanings or definitions of our words; used in translating (or mis-translating as was often the case) the Hebrew and Greek (not even the original Aramaic), have changed over the years. A comparative study of an older English dictionary with our modern editions and even vernacular can be very revealing. A person could look up "vain" for instance. Or "radical"....But I digress.
13:24 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
13:36 Then IaHUShUA sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of Man;
38 The field is the world; the good seed is the doctrine of the Kingdom; but the tares are the doctrines of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the adversary; the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are the angels (messengers).
40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this age.
41 The Son of Man shall send forth His angels (messengers), and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. . ..
12:1-2... Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
It takes us praying to IaHUeH through IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh ("The Messiah") for His Singular Spirit to reveal His Truth to us.
14:6 IaHUShUA saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me....
Even though "christianity" as we see it is obviously a lie, the Truth is still in the very same "Bible" they claim to believe. I think it would be good for everyone to read this, the most popular and widely misunderstood collection of books known to man. Where to begin? I started with Genesis . . . In the beginning when IaHUeH Elohim created all things, the first human was created in the image and likeness of Elohim. Male and Female. To this person was given the garden to care for and keep, to be responsible for. IaHUeH loved this person. This person was given a free will.
Freedom without responsibility isn't. This person was given access to every fruit of the garden (except one). Even the fruit of eternal life, as long as we loved His voice and chose to do that, which was acceptable and pleasing in His sight. IaHUeH wants us to love Him because we want to, not because we have to. This free will choice is perhaps the greatest gift in all of creation. Giving us the ability to choose the ultimate good.
The Creator saw that it wasn't good for the person to be alone. Among all of creation there was not found a help suitable, so causing a deep sleep to come upon the person, IaHUeH Elohim separated the female out of the male. Dividing the one into two. It is the desire to come back into unity that causes us to survive as a species. The urge to merge as it were.
"Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female. And said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? . . ."
So there we were freely given all good things to enjoy and be responsible for, Face to face communion with the Creator, Love and unity with each other. The Truth was crystal clear. Who could possibly want more? Along with the blessing of free will comes the inevitable question, "Why must I obey the will of the Creator?"
"I want the power to decide for myself what is good and what is evil." "I myself want to be like the Most High!". . . "I can choose to disobey you know! Then what happens? Huh? Huh? . . .".
Death and destruction. "You silly old bear!" We've been trying to warn you since the beginning . . . Wake up! . . . Please?
The reason we are given free will is to have the ability to choose the ultimate good. The important thing I realized is that even with all the world of knowledge available to me, it was still impossible for me to know what was that ultimate good thing to do in any circumstance. Many a time I would do those things that seemed right, or that felt good in the moment, but would turn out to be the worst possible choice in the long run.
Often I would blind myself to the possible pain and destruction I was causing, through my desire to fulfill the lusts of my flesh, Regardless the consequence. Other times it was my purest best intentions that ruined it. You see only IaHUeH Himself can possibly know what is that ultimate good. For IaHUeH is the Ultimate Good. So if we truly desire that Ultimate Good, we must depend upon the Source. We need diligently to seek the will of the Creator. IaHUeH has revealed His perfect will for us in giving us His Word; which is recorded and preserved in the Scriptures and verifiable through His Spirit, not to mention historical and archaeological evidence.
The choice is also apparent. I choose life and Love, in IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh. (the reality not the concept) You also have this choice.
|The time is now.|
|This is a matter of life and death.|
|Perhaps you feel the need for more information.|
Good! Lets not be too
We want to be sure that we understand what we are dealing with here first.
Along with this blessing of free will, comes the need for information. The more information we have, the better our choices. IaHUeH has and will always provide us with all the information we require to help us choose Love. For the answer indeed is Love. Real Love. The Love the Creator has for us all.
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you..."
It was out of the Creators most abundant Love for us that we were given the Great Law of Love.
IaHUeH chose to reveal Himself, to us all, to and through the people He chose for that purpose . . . IeShRaEL. In the recorded history of this people we not only learn of our Creator and the Great Law of Love. We also get to see over and over again the benefits of Loving IaHUeH, and keeping His Commandments, and the terrible consequences of turning away.
When a person turns away from the Great Law of Love, they in fact separate their self from the blessings of UNITY with the Creator!
Out of His tremendous Love for us all He had to make His Name known. He had to be Mighty to get our attention. Sometimes it takes a very harsh reality to get us to wake up and see what is real Love.
So what is this Great Law of Love? . . . Namely this, in part.
6:4 Hear, O Israel: IaHUeH our Elohim is IaHUeH a UNITY.
5 And thou shalt love IaHUeH thy Elohim with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates . . .
22:37 IaHUShUA said unto him, "Thou shalt love IaHUeH thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind."
38 This is the first and great commandment of the whole law.
39 And the second is like unto it. "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets ...
20:1 And Elohim spake all these words, saying,
2 I am IaHUeH thy Elohim, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no "mighty-ones" before Me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven idol, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I IaHUeH thy Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me;
6 And showing Mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take away the Name of IaHUeH thy Elohim to bring it to nought, for IaHUeH will not hold him guiltless that taketh away His Name to bring it to nought.
8 Remember the Sabbath-day, to keep it separated to IaHUeH.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of IaHUeH, thy Elohim: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days IaHUeH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore IaHUeH blessed the Sabbath-day, and set it apart.
12 Honour thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which IaHUeH thy Elohim giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not commit murder.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's...
30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you, life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
20 That thou mayest love IaHUeH thy Elohim, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto Him (for He is thy life, and the length of thy days) that thou mayest dwell in the land which IaHUeH sware unto thy fathers, to 'Abraham, to Ietskhaq, and to Ia'aqob, to give them...
5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to establish.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one iod or the smallest part of a letter shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. . .
See the First Epistle of IaHU-ChaNaN |to the top
The choice is very clear. Life or death. Sin is the transgression of the Law. The wages of sin is death. The gift of IaHUeH is eternal life through IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh our Saviour. Under the Law there is no remission of sin without the shedding of blood. For the life is in the blood.
So what have we here? We have a Creator who loves us so very much, that He not only gives us a free will to choose to love Him and gives us His Great Law of Love to inform us in our choice, but also allows us (up to a point) to face the consequences of our disobedience . . . We separate ourselves from the Giver and Sustainer of life, which can only lead to death and destruction.
IaHUeH knew what would happen, having that unique vantage point that encompasses all time (was, is, will be). He knows what choices we will make before we make them. He did also warn us. Repeatedly. We wouldn't listen, so He said in effect "O.K. So you won't believe Me when I wake up early to plead with you and warn you of the errors of your ways, you also won't believe Me when in the fury of My anger I consume some of you. I'll let you continue till you can see for yourself what your end shall be. Perhaps you will wake up."
He also promised a solution. In IaHUeH's infinite Love and mercy, from the very beginning, He had the plan for our salvation.
3:16 For IaHUeH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
17 For IaHUeH sent not His Son to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of IaHUeH.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth Truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought through Elohim . . .
For IaHUShUA came not to do His own will but the will of the Father Who sent Him. He chose to Love IaHUeH with all His heart, mind, soul and strength and to Love us as His very own self. Laying down His life so that we through Him might live. He paid the price once and for all. He took our punishment for us. He shed His precious blood to be the propitiation for our sins. Not only ours, but those of the whole world. Being Himself without transgression, in that He came to do the perfect will of IaHUeH and accomplished it, He could not be bound by death.
After three days in the tomb He was resurrected, and was witnessed by many. Giving the sure hope of eternal life; to all who would truly follow Him, He returned to the Father. IaHUeH gives His Own Spirit to those who Love Him, to show us how to be like Him. As we align our will with the perfect will of the Father, we become more and more like the Son.
IaHUShUA Himself then comes to dwell in us perfecting the UNITY. [SEE IaHuChaNaN 17.]
| back to the top |
We have seen some of the consequences of transgressing IaHUeH's perfect Law of Love. But there is more. Because that man has rejected IaHUeH's Law, he has had to make his own laws, thousands of them, most of which are designed to control others and force them against their will to do what the laws of the land dictate. Perhaps you have noticed the difference. You see mans law needs teeth.
Man has to enforce his law, or it doesn't work (actually it doesn't seem to work that very well any way). The only way to enforce any law is through cruelty and punishment. Believe me I know how cruel man can be. It is a tendency of human nature to elevate self, to want to feel more important than, to want to have power over every one and every thing else.
Even the Creator!
IaHUeH is no respecter of persons (He judges every one by what they Do), neither are we to be. We are all truly equal. Not any one of us is any more equal than anyone else. Human nature however, has the tendency to want to be special, better than. A person just doesn't feel powerful, or important, unless they can make someone else lick the dust from off their boot, in one form or another. Most people do this without even realizing it.
By focusing on the faults of others, a person can avoid seeing their own faults. In fact it's usually the very same tendencies that we abhor in others that we have trouble dealing with in our selves.
In other words, the tendency is to project our faults onto someone else, then try to destroy them, or at least get rid of them. This process is called Scape-goating. People seem to want to control others rather than self.
Control over others = Self exaltation.
In order to enforce the law of the land, you have to do things to others that you wouldn't want done to yourself.
As a matter of fact, the only way to enforce mans law is to go totally against the Great Law of Love!!! Whoa! Check it out.
"You shall Know the Truth and the Truth will make you free!"
4:5 And the adversary, taking Him up into an high mountain, showed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6 And the adversary said unto Him, All this power will I give Thee, and the excellence of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will, I give it.
7 If Thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be Thine.
8 And IaHUShUA answered and said unto him, Get thee behind Me, Satan: for it is written, "Thou shalt worship IaHUeH thy Elohim, and Him only shalt thou serve . . .."
6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
17 But IaHUeH be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness . . ..
Obedience = Worship!
[NOTE: This publication was written over three years ago... it was a step in the process of the discoveries we have been led to.. below I am still trying to Fit Paul into the Truth... he did say some truthful things.]
You may be wondering, "What about what Paul in his epistles and Peter in his, says about obeying the laws of the land and submitting to the authorities?"
I find it ironic that the "christians" of this world concede, if not by their words but by their actions that IaHUeH's commandments are of no effect. Yea, And that the teachings of IaHUShUA are not even to be taken literally. But if you don't do everything Paul tells you to do, and obey every one else in the world who would puff their self up as your master (or who allow others to elevate them as such), you will be punished. Eternally writhing in torment in hell.
First off, the whole concept of Hell is not only anti-Scriptural, but an attempt by that apostate "church" to scare the people into total blind submission to their control. Second, [if] Saul was an Apostle of IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh. He liked to refer to himself as "the least" (the meaning of Paul). He was sent by IaHUShUA (the meaning of apostle), to a specific people at a specific time (the meaning of context). Now if he was an Apostle sent by IaHUShUA, he would not set himself up in the place of IaHUShUA. Neither would he want us to. He bore the Glad Tidings of Ha-MaShIaCh, and instructed and advised the people that came to him (or that he was sent to) of the nations (jews also) concerning the commandments of IaHUeH, and the Assembly of the Body of IaHUShUA, MaShIaChaH.
It was a critical time for the Assembly, which had suffered persecution from the very beginning. Firstly they were in the iron-like grip of the hand of Rome and would have been totally destroyed before even being established if they dared show any opposition. As it was this tactic bought only a few precious moments. Just enough.
The fist closed anyway. First through the persecution by Nero who found IaHUShUA's followers to be convenient scape-goats to avoid the scrutiny of his own people. For he was not a very good emperor but rather self centered given to drunkenness, cruelty, and excess... Typical.
Nero murdered his mother and wife and is said to have started the fire that burned Rome in C.E. 64. He blamed the followers of IaHUShUA, (of course); which brought on the most horrible persecution.
At that time you could be hauled in and executed for being a follower of IaHUShUA. So you especially wanted to mind your "p's and q's". The last thing you wanted to do was attract negative attention to yourself. You might get "pulled over".
The followers of IaHUShUA were publicly murdered, being burned alive, torn apart by beasts, (men, women, and children,) dying the most terrible deaths; for the amusement of cheering spectators. Six years later Ierushalem was destroyed, because the Iahudim unwisely and openly rebelled against Roman rule. | (to the Top of this page)
Then through incorporation when Constantine invented "christianity", and made it the state religion; forcing all to be baptized regardless of belief, the pure Truth was adulterated, the Assembly of the Body MaShIaChaH was effectively destroyed. But not without leaving behind precious documents for us in these last days,
which are given to confirm the Truth (and vice versa) given through IaHUeH's Singular Spirit, and miraculously preserved in the Scriptures.
The "church" had found a way to control the people forcing them against their will under threat of painful death, and eternal torment to submit to the authority of the men in charge and mans law.
This apostate "church" during the period of time we call the "dark ages" managed to control the people, taking away the individuals free will, forcing submission, for 1260 years ("a time, times, and half a time?").
How was this accomplished? By denying the people access to information.
For even so much as possessing a copy of the Scriptures you could die the most excruciating death. This precious information that was provided by IaHUeH for all people everywhere to be able freely to choose to Love IaHUeH and to walk in the Light of His Great Law of Love!
The "church" found this information to be quite threatening to their authority. They thought it impossible for the common person to understand the simplicity of the Truth . . . Or didn't want them to!
"If the people read the Scripture they might get the wrong idea. . .". "We would lose control! . . .". "We will just have to interpret it for them . . .". "Perhaps if we changed just a few lines, say . . . in the Epistles, just to be sure? . . ..". No wonder we call it the dark ages!
Also most of the time "the authorities" referred to in the epistles were the servants of IaHUeH and followers of IaHUShUA, who were given of IaHUeH's singularly separate Spirit to advise and instruct the people, concerning the commandments of IaHUeH and the testimony of IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh. These "authorities" also ministered to the assembling of the Body of IaHUShUA MaShIaChaH. These were not given as leaders or rulers, but rather, as humble servants who were given an understanding of the Truth to share with the Kindren.
Finally the people of the nations that Saul wrote most of his epistles to, were indeed ignorant of IaHUeH's Great Law of Love. It is understandable that Saul saw fit to make up for the lack.
I personally think he went a little bit overboard in his zeal.
It would seem as if, he started telling people what to do, instead of advising and instructing the people, concerning the Commandments of IaHUeH, and the testimony of IaHUShUA; Who is our only Leader and King.
"Earth's Rightful Ruler."
The important fact to consider is this, that was then, this is now. The world has grown up a lot since then. Knowledge has indeed increased. Now, if only we had the Wisdom to apply it . . . The world has seen major changes (mostly for the worst) in only the past 100 years. We live in an age of information. The flood of information available to the individual today is mind boggling.
Sad to say much of this information is a lie, part of the lie, or is used to support the lie. The confusion has reached an excruciating level (the meaning of Babel).
For instance in this country (the untied states of america) the government is supposedly "Of the people, by the people, and for the people," and yet I find that "my" government in no way represents my best interests, or those of my neighbors, or of creation itself. Let alone the best interests of the Creator for us.
Now it is hoped that you can see, I am not advocating lawlessness. In fact I know that by truly following IaHUShUA in obeying IaHUeH, I will not be covetous, lying, stealing, cheating, murdering, or commiting adultery. This is doing much more than your average law abiding citizen.
You see it's all just a matter of focus.
Lets take a look at Daniel. Here was a man who at an early age was taken captive from Ierushalem to Babylon. From arrival he good naturedly refused to abandon IaHUeH's Commandments and food laws. He and his three companions were found by their controllers to be upright in all their ways.
Daniel lived through three Babylonian kings, refusing to compromise his devotion and obedience to IaHUeH. He thereby won their respect, by being faithful to IaHUeH and consequently upright and honest in his dealings with his captors.
Babylon was conquered by the Medes of whom Darius was king.
6:1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.
3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
4 Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.
5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his Eloah . . .
So knowing that Daniel had a practice of praying to IaHUeH three times a day, these presidents and princes talked the king into passing a new law. This law made it a crime punishable by death in the lions den if anyone was caught asking a petition (praying) of any man or deity except to the king himself.
Well what do you think Daniel did?
6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Ierushalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his Eloah, as he did aforetime .
As I stated earlier I am not advocating lawlessness or even of going against the laws of the land. But for keeping IaHUeH's Commandment's I am hated and persecuted by the Beast. If I allow the Government of man to control me, I would be transgressing the first Commandment (no "mighty ones" before IaHUeH).
There is also another point of difference. Coincidentally it also has to do with the individuals free will choice Mine!
You see IaHUeH has in His infinite Love and wisdom given me a certain green flowering herb, which I use as an Incense in His Temple (my body). I burn this herb with prayers and thanksgiving to IaHUeH EL-ELION. I know that this is acceptable and pleasing to Him, because He has given me of His Spirit, and shown me how to use this herb to focus on His Word, and to touch the Light of His great Law of Love. I know that this is good for me; and that it is not as dangerous to my health as the "government" wants us to think.
I also know that when I might on occasion choose to burn this special herb and pray, that I am not endangering my neighbors life or property, or infringing on any one of my fellow humans rights or freedom to choose, truly to Love the Creator with the whole self, and neighbor as self.
Those certain inalienable rights, given of the Creator; that among them are; life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness should even still be applicable.
That is not to say that all use of this herb is good (though it is the single most useful plant in the history of our civilization), but that it has a special use to IaHUeH. Especially in today's world of confusion, the individual being bombarded from every direction by a mass of external stimuli, it is difficult for a person to focus on any one thing without distraction.
"The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light."
It is a characteristic of this herb when ingested to enable a person to "stop and smell the roses," to relax without diminishing consciousness. In fact I detect a marked increase in awareness. This makes it an excellent focusing tool.
The key to the power of any tool however, lies in its application. When this herb, given of IaHUeH; is offered by fire, given to IaHUeH in prayer, and IaHUeH's singularly separate Spirit is called upon in the Name of IaHUShUA; a persons eyes and ears can be opened to understanding the Truth of IaHUeH's Word, and His perfect will for us. Of course IaHUeH can do this without the use of this herb, He gives us this herb as a special gift to help us in the process.
This is quite a difference from alcohol for instance which, actually produces a stupor, shutting down the consciousness, numbing ones awareness, producing a sort of artificial death in the user.
The reason most people drink is that they prefer this death to awareness. Awareness can be very painful. "Ignorance is bliss?" I choose not to use alcohol and prefer not to be around its use. I have seen tremendous destruction, damage, and even death related to its consumption; not only to the individual that chooses to imbibe, but to nearly everyone else that person comes in contact with, while intoxicated, or hung-over. Decidedly, drinking alcohol is not a good practice; (the modern use of Tobacco is also a destructive habit), but I believe that it is up to the individual to choose not to do it.
I can perhaps help with some advice and information, even hold your hand, lend an understanding ear, perhaps help you deal with some of your problems, but I will not force my choice upon you.
Only just please don't force your choice on me! or on my neighbors! . you see, I Love them too.
Some of my neighbors on the other hand (who I still Love) out of obedience to their "government"; who made this relatively harmless, extremely beneficial herb against the law of the land (through ignorant fear and blatant lies); actually seem to hate me for not going along with the popular description, which I know to be a lie and contrary to IaHUeH's perfect will for me.
I may even be murdered for writing this document. I take the chance because I have a certain responsibility to share the Truth with you.
Well! You may be saying. "What does Paul say about this herb stuff in the "bible"?" Though nothing specific he does give a general rule which, I find to be faithful and quite applicable. [Even still!]
4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods (herbs) [GEN.1:29], which IaHUeH hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature (thing created) of IaHUeH is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is set-apart by the word of IaHUeH and prayer. [LEVITICUS 11:1-47.]
6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of IaHUShUA Ha-MaShIaCh, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
7 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto separation to IaHUeH.
8 For bodily exercise (what you take into your body) profiteth little: but separation to IaHUeH is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living Elohim. who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
11 These things command and teach . . .
15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did IeSha-IaHU prophesy of you, saying,
8 "This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me.
9 But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."
10 And He called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man . . ..
Again not specific but addresses our subject extraordinarily, and is again quite applicable. In fact I find the conspicuous absence of the specific mention of this herb to be very strange indeed. Though there are a few allusions. For instance is it merely coincidence that IaHUeH chooses to reveal Himself to Moses in the guise of a burning bush? [EXODUS 3:1-6]
And what is this plant of renown? [EZEKIEL 34:29] I decided not to "pun"ish you with references to the stone.
In closing I would like to offer up;
1 O IaHUeH Elohim, to Whom vengeance belongeth; O El, to Whom vengeance belongeth, shew Thyself.
2 Lift up Thyself, Thou Judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 IaHUeH, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
5 They break in pieces Thy people, O IaHUeH, and afflict Thine heritage.
6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
7 Yet they say, IaH shall not see, neither shall the Elohim of Ia'aqob regard it.
8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall He not hear? He that formed the eye, shall He not see?
10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not He correct? He that teacheth man knowledge, shall not He know?
11 IaHUeH knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
12 Blessed is the man whom Thou chastenest, O IaH, and teachest him out of Thy law;
13 That Thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
14 For IaHUeH will not cast off His people, neither will He forsake His inheritance.
15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless IaHUeH had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
18 When I said, My foot slippeth; Thy mercy, O IaHUeH, held me up.
19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul.
20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with Thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
22 But IaHUeH is my defence; and my Elohim is the rock of my refuge.
23 And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, IaHUeH our Elohim shall cut them off.
May IaHUeH bless you with His understanding,
and guide you in His Truth.
In IaHUShUA's Name,
IaHU NaTaN IeShRaEL.
