THE LAW KEEPERS
LET’S GIVE GOD, THE CREATOR,
THE CREDIT HE IS DUE
AND RESPECT ALL OF HIS WORKS AND WORD,
AND GIVE CREDENCE TO HIS LAW
“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.”
“Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
“Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
“I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.”

When the Holy ONE of Israel first showed me HIS WORD, and I learned of my true identity, I could not read HIS WORD and be thankful enough for being chosen to learn this Divine Truth. And I had no problems accepting “Thus Saith the LORD.” Actually, I sought it as opposed to the teachings of “man,” which only confused me. ALWAYS, always the problem has been with my Sisters and Brothers, especially Christians and Messianics, who reject that which is written in favor of their own ideals of GOD’s WORD. However, the Truth of the matter is that IF we have a GOD that CREATED a FLAWLESS Universe and a FLAWLESS and IMPECCABLE Book of the Law, i.e., Way of Life for all mankind to follow, then why even think about considering another means of serving and worshipping this GOD? Doesn’t it stand to reason that HE, being the CREATOR and in all HIS WISDOM, knows how HE wants to be worshipped and Exalted? What right has “man” (the created) to change GOD’s WORKS, HIS WORD or HIS WAYS? This is not being circumspect; this is being foolish. Our forefathers not only rejected this All-Mighty GOD, the CREATOR, but they rejected HIS Law, as well and their Great Sins against this True and Living GOD have landed us in our enemies’ lands to serve them and to live in endless affliction and misery (Deuteronomy 28th Chapter). Let’s not follow their lead. Let’s return to Our ONLY GOD and SAVIOR and follow HIS Ways set for us under the teachings of GOD’s Prophet Moses.
“Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.” Psalm 119:128
“Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
“Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.” Psalm 119:140,142
“Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.” Psalm 119:160
“It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.”
Recently I posted a Message to The LawKeepers WebSite* entitled “The Israelites Must Cleave to the ONE GOD of Moses…,” and in it I made mention of the WONDROUS WORKS and WORDS of the CREATOR, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, but because I did not elaborate, I feel I did not do this Amazing and Phenomenal GOD the Justice HE so rightly and honorably deserves. Therefore, this Message is to bring to LIGHT the fact that because GOD is the CREATOR of Heaven and Earth and all things therein, then the whole entire world should give credence to HIM for preparing this planet and for providing mankind with the One and Only Way to live righteously and prosperously in assured Peace and Stability and ACCEPT IT faithfully and wholeheartedly. Unfortunately unto this day, this has not happened!
Today, we live as we choose, and in case you had not noticed, we live in a rat race Created by “man” that inhibits us from contemplating the events of Genesis and/or from realizing how these Wondrous WORKS and WORD of GOD impact on our very being.
Yet, the majority of the people in the world hold fast to one religion or another, and the LORD knows there are enough of them from which to choose. Unfortunately, most people choose their religion based on their parents’ choice or based on political factors. I don’t know of anyone who can truthfully say that they chose their religion because it serves them well but rather because it is patriotically and socially the correct thing to do and the “one” that provides them with the most flexibility to do as they please. However, if the predominant religion of the country is, e.g., Christian, then one is encouraged to just make sure it’s one of these denominations – unless of course the individual is “Jewish.”
Thus, my question is this: why have a religion that cannot or does not prove worthy of your worship?
Not one religion: idolatrous, Christian, or Judaic has manifested a positive change on this Earth or in those who adopt it. And those who are true to self will admit that this is the Truth of the matter. Not even the Pope of Rome, the so-called “Holy Father” has made any impact upon Catholics, and much less mankind, and he is supposed to be in close proximity to Peter, or is it jc or both? In any case, take one good look at the scandal, abuse, fraud, and sexual misconduct running rampant in this Mother of all Christian Denominations that has this major religion looking to file bankruptcy because of the lawsuits resulting from the great abominations of those within its walls calling themselves “Priests” and “Second to God.”
From where does this Roman Catholic form of worship stem, anyway? And from where and how did it or any other religion acquire credibility? The source certainly did not stem from the “Thus Saith the LORD” for at the time of the Christian inception, GOD had long since ceased to provide visions to HIS Prophets, Seers, and Priests, and that includes jc (Lamentations 2:27).
From documentation, we can learn about the many religions that grew out of Catholicism, and all were established by one man after another who chose to determine on his own volition to institute a change to the previous high-flying religion and then profess that this “new” dogma is the one that mankind should accept. And indeed these sundry man-made religions all gained fame, as well as notoriety over time to the dismay of those who adopted these mortal ways that have served no one well at all. Actually, we need only observe this planet and the ways and actions of man’s influence on it to see that “man” knows little or nothing about dignity, compassion, justice, and least of all GOD’s Righteousness.
Empires have come and gone and so also have leading nations. In any case, those presently up to bat have enjoyed their day in the sun and are abiding the time for their assured fall, as well. Of a certainty, the GOD that Created the Heavens and the Earth will not continue to tolerate the ambitious but failing ways of man – be they religious, political, or social. GOD’s Heavens and Earth in no way resemble their beginnings, and we have mankind to thank for this devastation that has contaminated this globe throughout. These Creations in the hands of man are only worsening to the point that “man” - not GOD - would blow it all up to oblivion if the CREATOR does not intervene. And unbeknownst to the inhabitants of this Earth, the CREATOR is indeed in charge and preventing this from happening.
Since we are all aware of what man has done, let’s look at what GOD did in the beginning (Genesis) and with HIS Chosen People, the Children of Israel. And not under any circumstances can we dismiss any of the events of the Book of Genesis – not any!
Man cannot Create a Heaven and an Earth and all the living creatures and plant life that exists as did the All-Mighty GOD of Hosts. Just imagine what all GOD, the CREATOR, so miraculously did with HIS extraordinary and unparalleled WISDOM and MIGHT! To sit and think about the very beginning of the world when only GOD and darkness prevailed can literally blow your mind. But the fact remains, the events of Genesis happened, i.e., GOD’s WORD and HIS WORKS came to light, and they didn’t stop there!
What enters your mind when you are blessed to see a Rainbow? And have you been fortunate enough to witness one Rainbow with another directly beneath it. This is not only a spectacular sight to behold but also one that only GOD can manifest. What about rains in the desert? I have seen desert lands come alive with herbs, flowers, and green hills and valleys in just one rainy season – all the miraculous WORK OF GOD. And let us not forget the earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and devastating storms that can be so terribly destructive, albeit, yet not as destructive as man.
“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.” Isaiah 45:7
Just ask yourself: What idol or creature can produce or prevent such wonders - be they good or bad, positive or negative?
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Numbers 23:19
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” Isaiah 17:5
“To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?”
“I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
“I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.”
“To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?” Isaiah 46:5
“Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.” Micah 7:18
“Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
“Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.” Isaiah 44:6,8
In making mention of these ACTS OF GOD, I urge everyone to consider HIS WORD and WORKS that HE established for the benefit of mankind. As well, I urge everyone to determine if this man-made “Saviour of the World” comes close to being compared to the CREATOR, the ONE true and Living GOD of this Earth. Given all the facts, I also urge everyone to determine if this “man” called jc is nothing more than total fabrication. Without question, the issues posed in this Message must be addressed in order to conclude the absolute Truth of the Living GOD. Therefore, let RESPECT be given to Truth, especially if it is GOD’s TRUTH!!!
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11
Let’s recap. GOD Created the Heavens and the Earth and man and plants and animals for man’s sustenance. We should all learn that GOD’s WORK did not stop there. HE also established HIS Ways for man to follow, but few choose to realize ALL of HIS WORKS. And without a doubt, HIS Righteous Ways, of all things, are the most important for us to know and understand.
We cannot dismiss the fact that Adam and Eve were COMMANDED of exactly how to conduct themselves in the Garden. And when men multiplied upon the Earth, they, too, had been given GOD’s Ways to live by, as well.
“And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
“And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
“And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
“But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
“These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
“And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
“The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.” Genesis 6:5 – 12
We learn from the above verses that mankind had an opportunity to live justly by following GOD’s Righteous Ways, but only Noah chose to live as GOD, the CREATOR, had so justly COMMANDED. Consider this: If Noah knew how to conduct himself, then so also were others knowledgeable of how to live to please GOD, as well. The CREATOR would want mankind to succeed not fail. This is HIS Creation, remember?!
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
“And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
“And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
“Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.” Genesis 7:1,2
In these passages, we learn that GOD’s Ways of Righteousness and Noah’s knowledge of clean and unclean flesh are evidence that GOD indeed made HIS Paths of Righteousness known to mankind who lived before the Flood. The Peoples living at that time just chose NOT to live by these Divine Ways. Ironically, the Peoples of today with their foolish ways also share the same ill-fated behavior.
Thus, as you well know, the CREATOR, the Most High GOD that Created Heaven and Earth made the decision to destroy life on this planet that HE had made. I might add that this globe today is in much worse condition than it was before the ancient Flood of Noah’s time. And after all this time, we have not yet learned the importance of turning to GOD’s Truth rather than giving credence to the imaginations of men’s hearts.
If we are all in agreement that no one but GOD, All-Mighty, can perform such incredible WORKS and WONDERS as HE has done, why then won’t the Peoples of this Earth follow HIS Righteous Paths that HE not only established for HIS Chosen People, but ALSO for the welfare of all mankind? Why can’t human beings realize that this same CREATOR has Righteous Laws, Statutes, and Judgments unequaled to none? And they WORK IF we follow them!
Many people falsely believe that GOD’s Righteous Ways are demonstrated by so-called “Judaism.” Well, nothing could be further from the Truth. “Judaism” is NOT, in any way, a representation of GOD’s Book of the Law, i.e., the Way of Life that GOD prepared for HIS Chosen People and for the Stranger who seek to follow HIM in Righteousness.
“Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
“And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.” Deuteronomy 31:12,13
Also, the CONVERTED, so-called “Jews” in the world are in no way the SEED of the Biblical Israelites, and it should be made perfectly clear that their establishment of “Judaism” (like Christianity and idolatry) only aids in the deception of religious practices and in the brainwashing of those who believe they are worshipping GOD according to HIS Ways set forth millennia ago. Therefore, so-called “Jews” and the Israelis are usurpers of GOD’s Holy Land and the Name of the Children of Judah – the last of the Israelites to inhabit the Land of Israel before they were taken into captivity enabling the CONVERTS to take control. Without question, that makes them imposters. No manner of conversion and/or submersion can make a Gentile a biological Israelite, but the Europeans perform this sacrilegious practice all the time. Israelites are born – not CONVERTED. Even after 2,400 years of captivity in our enemies’ lands, Our GOD of Abraham and Moses will recognize HIS Chosen People. And without a doubt, it is HE that musters and rallies HIS Chosen Ones to accept HIS WORD and seek to return to their heritage. The “Dry Bones” are coming to the LIGHT! This RETURN is also GOD’s WORD, and it WILL come to pass! And those who have deceived GOD’s Elect will pay dearly just as Edom and others joined unto him paid in 70 “A.D.”
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
“And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
“But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.” Jeremiah 23:7,8
Israelites are born of other Israelite “males” – not females, as so-called “Jews” proclaim in their religious literature. And the Books of GOD’s Law all attest to this fact. GOD states that HE is the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Exodus 3:15) - NOT the GOD of Sarah, Rebecca, Bilhah, and Zilpah (the wives of the Hebrew Patriarchs). Not only that, but the lineage of the Israelites listed throughout the Law and the Scriptures, particularly I Chronicles are all about the sons of sons and not sons of daughters. For changing GOD’s Ordinances, we can thank the scholars who formed “Judaism” (as well as “Christianity”). Unequivocally, this man-made religion, “Judaism,” is also guilty of deceiving the entire world with its books: the Talmud made up of the Mishna and the Gemara all of which are quite distinctly different from GOD’s Written Law, also called the Book of the Law and the First Five Books of Moses. According to GOD’s Law, these works of so-called “Jewish Scholars” cannot be accepted as GOD’s Ways, as they are “added” to the WORD of GOD, and this is absolutely forbidden.
“Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.” Deuteronomy 4:2
“Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.
“Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.” Deuteronomy 5:32,33
“What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.” Deuteronomy 12:32
Not any man has Created a religion that can surpass or even compare to that which GOD has formed for the man HE Created to enable him to live in Righteousness, stability, prosperity, and assured Divine Peace – not any man!
Let’s give GOD the credit HE is due. If this All-Mighty GOD can Create the Heavens and the Earth, etc., etc., then HE can most certainly Create a flawless and glorious Way of Life for mankind to live and do and show forth HIS Praises in the process. AND HE DID! “Man” just chooses to falsely believe that he knows better than GOD.
GOD’s WORKS, WORD, and WONDERS speak for themselves, and all HIS Truths endure forever. We just don’t give them any attention. BUT EVENTUALLY WE WILL!
“Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.” Psalm 119:160
In total opposition, Christianity teaches and Christians choose to believe that GOD sent a “son” to accomplish HIS WORD and in the deal it must be accepted that he was born of a virgin. And more than that, people are to believe in and have faith in this “man” jc. If this isn’t complete nonsense and unheard of in GOD’s WORD, then I don’t know what is. One thing is for sure: GOD is CONSISTENT WITH CONSISTENCY! HE does not change (Malachi 3:6)! If we are COMMANDED not to add to or diminish from HIS Law, then it stands to reason that HE would not impregnate a betrothed woman. If the writers of the “New Testament” insisted upon another form of worship, they should at least have correlated their “new” version of this religion with what’s written in “Thus Saith the LORD.” But, they didn’t, and therein lies their blunder.
Firstly, GOD, the CREATOR, established an EVERLASTING Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel and COMMANDED that they keep HIS most unique Book of the Law “FOREVER.”
“THESE are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD Gof of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.” Deuteronomy 12:1
“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that WE MAY DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW.” Deuteronomy 29:29 (Caps. are mine.)
This Book of the Law was established specifically to govern GOD’s Chosen People, as well as the Stranger, and prevent the very evil and wickedness that prevails on this Earth. Unfortunately, GOD’s Chosen Ones are just as rebellious as are all others, and the last thing on their minds is to give credence to a well structured Way of Life while the rest of the world is living high off the hog and reveling in merry-making matters that mean most to them but much less to GOD. Therefore, the very last thing this globe needs is for “man” to come up with some brainy idea that supposedly can “Save the World.”
Secondly, GOD’s “Firstborn Son” is the whole Nation of Israel.
“And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:” Exodus 4:22
And thirdly, this so-called “son” that was supposed to have been born of a virgin is something not consistent with GOD’s Ways. If this woman “Mary” was betrothed, then according to GOD’s Law, she was as good as married to this man “Joseph.” Thus, GOD would never have impregnated a woman betrothed or married. And such an act would question the credibility of GOD’s still existing Law:
“If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
“Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.” Deuteronomy 22:23,24
In any case, let’s proceed to see if we can find any Truth whatsoever to this “man,” jc, being the so-called “Saviour of the World.”
“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
“For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
“Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;” Isaiah 43:1 – 3,5
It would appear that the Israelites DO NOT NEED jc!!! We need the GOD that SAVED the Children of Israel out of Egypt, and it was not jc.
Let’s see now; jc was born of a virgin, grew to adulthood, did a few miracles, rid people of their chronic ailments, and fed the hungry (not to mention that he did not observe GOD’s Seventh Day Sabbath of Rest). This does not a “Savior” make!!! And to tell the whole story, jc did not observe GOD’s Righteous Judgments, did not establish GOD’s Kingdom, and left the task of “Saving” the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel to his so-called Disciples. If you ask me, the writers of the “NT” had him conveniently pass the buck and get the heck out of there because they knew that their tail was nothing more than suspect – obviously – and could blow up in their faces! After 2,000 years and still no jc and no Kingdom, well, the wise know the story, and that it was all a big scam – end of story! But let’s tackle it anyway with THE WORD OF GOD.
“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” Isaiah 42:8
The big question that believers in jc should be asking is if GOD placed him in Mary’s womb, then how can he have a lineage from Mary, Joseph, or from all the way back to King David as the “NT” proclaims? How can he have a lineage at all? The writers of the “NT” gave him one whether it fits, in the words of Johnny Cochran, or not. Thus, people have to start thinking for themselves and realizing that the “New Testament” is total fiction and one darn poor yarn at that. The stories of the handicapped who were healed of their maladies are about as credible as are the ones we hear about today. But no one in this day and time has taken X number of fish and fed a multitude to my knowledge. Humph, number one, if it ain’t barbecue, pig tails, or greasy and fattening fast food, they’d be wasting their time to try!
Furthermore that which remains a shocking surprise is the fact that jc healed on GOD’s Seventh Day Sabbath of Rest. These people had been sick for much of their lives, so couldn’t he have waited until after sundown when the Sabbath ended to heal them? And as if that weren’t enough, he went around beating up on people in Herod’s Temple on this Holy Sabbath Day, as well when he should have been in his place on GOD’s Holy Day of Rest (Exodus 16:29). I guess he had forgotten that the Sabbath Day was a “Sign” between GOD and HIS Chosen (Exodus 31:17), and that he should have been refreshing himself in preparation for the upcoming week. And regarding GOD’s Judgments that HE “LOVES,” it would appear that jc was oblivious to them. And it seems that this “man” did not realize that GOD’s Judgments were instituted to keep HIS People in Fear of HIM and to sustain Righteousness. This so-called knowledgeable “Son of God” completely ignored his “Father” and went about doing his own thang! Rather than set an example to follow GOD’s Law, jc altogether dismissed it: “He that is without sin among you let him first cast a stone at her” (John 8:7). Of course this is supposed to impress those who read the “NT.” And the reason is that GOD’s Judgment would have condemned this adulteress to death. Thus, such harsh punishment would be frowned upon and would make the “NT” a more acceptable and compassionate form of worship that would, in my opinion, permit sinners to continue to do what they do best – SIN and magnify jc more - while belittling, demeaning, and minimizing GOD’s Laws, Statutes, and Judgments. It’s called “Manipulation” at its best!
This is just another reason why Christianity has failed miserably. And failed, it has for no one is “Saved.” People are dying and suffering on a daily basis even those who believe and have faith in this myth of a man, jc. Actually, the world, since his so-called coming and going (let’s not forget that) is none the better but worse. And it’s high time believers in him start to realize that in the name of jc much chaos, confusion, murder, dividing and conquering, enslavement, captivity, and corruption prevail.
When we make mention of the WORKS and WONDERS of the LORD GOD that Created the Heavens and the Earth, it is absolutely unfair and profane to give credit due the All-Mighty to someone else. GOD alone deserves to be Exalted and Magnified for the sensational Creations in the First Chapter of Genesis.
“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;” Isaiah 44:24
“Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.” Isaiah 45:8
“I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.” Isaiah 45:12
Therefore, jc, a murdered man, who can’t save himself and much less someone else, CANNOT take credit for GOD’s WORKS. His death was more of a blasphemous episode that in no way correlates with the WORD of GOD. Since when, in all the events of the Israelites, did the GOD of the Hebrew Israelites permit one human being to be sacrificed for another? SINCE WHEN?! And why the writers of the “NT” used such a scenario is beyond my comprehension, when GOD tells HIS Chosen Ones countless times not to sacrifice their children to false gods – and certainly NOT to HIM. Not only that, but the Prophet Moses tried to be a “sacrificial lamb” for the sins of the Israelites, but GOD would have none of it and quickly set Moses straight.
“And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.
“Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
“And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.” Exodus 32:31 – 33
At this point, I hope that readers are beginning to contemplate and consider that something is terribly wrong with belief in jc, and that the paths taken that lead to this “man” are not GOD’s Paths after all?
Hopefully the Stranger is thinking to disregard the fact that GOD does indeed have a Chosen People and will seek to follow HIM anyway because HE accepts ALL who seek to follow HIS Ways (Isaiah 56:6 – 8)? Give this GOD, the CREATOR, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel a try and pray to HIM for understanding, Truth, and knowledge of HIS Righteous Paths?
“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls…” Jeremiah 6:16
“Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;” Jeremiah 18:15
“Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.” Malachi 4:4
Have we as individuals not suffered enough from being deceived and brainwashed? Has this once beautiful Earth not been polluted enough? Have not enough men, women, and children died? Have not the Rulers of this world manipulated and connived enough nations to commit enough evil? Has not the world believed in enough lies? Does the world not suffer enough because of the great SINS of the Nation of Israel that forsook the Most High GOD for the likes of false gods and false saviors, nonetheless? And did not the True and Living GOD cast HIS Chosen out of HIS Holy Land and give them EXACTLY what they wanted? Earth, O Earth, “Hear the WORD of the LORD!”
“And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
“And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:” Deuteronomy 28:64,65
“Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour.” Jeremiah 16:13
“As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; Go ye, serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols.” Ezekiel 20:39
All of this, too, (in addition to being punishment) is the WORK of GOD in motion to bring people to their senses, so that they can see and realize the GOD’s Truth - that we must yield to HIS Ways – HIS Righteousness that HE established so long, long ago.
For sure, and make no mistakes about it, there is a direct correlation between evil and wickedness and with people who do not Fear GOD and live by HIS Law. Of a Truth, there is no peace or happiness to the wicked – money, maybe – but no peace. You do the math; count all the rich souls who have committed suicide or are strung out on drugs!
There is only Glory in Truth – but GOD’s Truth. Therefore, let’s give the All-Mighty CREATOR HIS due. HE knows well what we should be doing to serve and worship HIM in Righteousness in order to lead healthy lives. In the words of the Prophet Elijah, “the GOD that answereth by fire, let him be GOD” (I Kings 18:24).
In my words, “Let the GOD that Created the Heavens and the Earth be GOD, and let us follow HIS Righteous Laws, Statutes, and Judgments, for HE ALONE has proven HIMSELF to be worthy of our Worship and Praise – HE ALONE! Therefore, let’s give this All-Mighty GOD the credit HE deserves.
