At the origin of man the Divine Creator provided a world full of plants useful as food. Man was not so happy with it and wanted more variation and meat. God allowed such things but warned them about the good and bad meat or fish. God also gave man mitzvoth so that they could measure their wrong goings and should have a guide for their life. In his effort to play for God man has tried to muddle with genes and to create new hybrids. The understanding on genes and genomes, and ways to manipulate them has given many scientists extreme ideas, tending to distort and exaggerate the results or waving away the possible dangers for the next generations of plants and animals. Different kinds of risks, real benefits, aims and control systems are complicated and genuine discussion between people with different backgrounds is essential and should have to think very cautiously, wondering if we are not going to far. Not only genetic manipulation but also transporting food all over the world and producing it on industrial level should worry us and should make us to take the proper choice to protect the environment. Let us not forget that the Elohim wants us to be healthy – inside and out, living in a healthy clean environment always to know that a person is that what he eats.
13 Adar the onset of weeks of Feasts of deliverance
Living in this world we should not be of it, but should be partakers of a Body that wants to be a Group of believers in One God, who want to offer themselves as repentant souls to the Most High and who want to create a place where they can gather and share their dreams in union with God and where all can grow stronger in their faith and become a people that shall be able to go through the big tribulation when it comes.
A man and a woman created for each other, accountable to their Creator, in whose image they are made creative beings.
After the wrong choice and action of the first human beings the elohim had no other choice than to bring over man the curse He had warned them for. But out of love for His creatures He also provided straight away a solution against the curse of death and gave man a second chance.
In the second and third chapter of the Bereshith (the book of the beginning) we find that God, Who had made man in His image, brought a helper for the ish or man so that they could live together in a bond of union, related to the other living beings and to the Most High Elohim, in a state we now call marriage.
About the origin or source of evil there are many discussions. In this article I look at the time where badness entered in the world of man and where we have to look for the source of evil or badness.
Man knew that The Word of God brought life and order and got their mind wondering if they could not become as wise and mighty as God. The inner voice of man or the nachash is of self-esteem and brings deception when allowing oneself to be carried away by the temptation, falling into trickery, treachery,and insincerity.
In the world of Christians and Muslims there are those who may think the Torah is not for them and that they do not have to keep to the Laws of God any more. Some even prefer to follow the laws of their religious group as if that is more important than following the Laws of the Set-apart Scriptures. The world received a Sent one from God who came to give the proper, God-intended interpretation of the Torah! People do have to come to recognise that sent one from God and have to follow his teachings, with the knowledge that he is the Way to God. That sent one from God also expressed his believe in his heavenly Father Who is the Divine Creator all should come to accept as their loving Father as well. He is The One Who knows our heart and Who has provided for us a manual for our life which also explains His Plan. That manual is the Torah, we all should to favour as our most important Guide for our life.
The world received written words from the Ruach haKodesh, to be taught and to receive encouragement of the Tanakh and presenting prophesies so that we might patiently hold on to a hope entrusted by the Most High Elohim, so that we may be fully equipped for every good work.
Rabbi Jeshua in many of his talks gave several examples of how we had to work at ourselves and how we should prepare ourselves to be ready and to be worthy to go through the small gate of the Kingdom of God. The characteristics we should work at to come closer in the image of God, may be presented by the lights of the menorah or seven armed candelabrum, which we can use as a handy tool for thinking about the seven basic emotions.
Historically, any Jewish group which denied the basic principles of Jewish tradition – Torah and mitzvah-observance – ultimately ceased to be part of the Jewish people. Rabbi Jeshua never denied the basic principles of Jewish tradition, though several who call themselves Christian are not following Christ his teachings and ignore even the basic Jewish core teachings and do not want to work at the basic characteristics a child of God should have. To remind us of those elements we should work at, the Elohim has given us a useful tool to remember all those basic characteristics.
Created in the image of God has every human being some elements or characteristics of the Elohim and has each individual the task to try to get all their characteristics in line with those of the Most High.
With the Holy Scriptures we are given words that should have us to come to reflect on our own life and that of others, learning from the lessons given in that library of books. In the various books which make the Bible you may find the words written down by men of God by whom Jehovah put forth His hand, gave them to see and understand, and put His words in their mouth, setting them over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down and to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.
To seek wisdom the Holy Scriptures are the best source for getting to know everything man has to know to make the best of his life and to see what is going to happen in this world, so that man can protect himself for the horrible war to come. Man should know that every writing inspired by the Most High Elohim Hashem Jehovah is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction which is in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work and may find the Way to God and to the small gate of the Kingdom of God.
