My Religious persuasion

I believe that there is Only One Divine Creator of heaven and earth who gave a general mitzvoth (commandment) to the first man and later added some other mitzvah or several precepts and directives to which man should keep himself to be safe and able to live peacefully.

Each of us is responsible for himself and can not claim someone else for his own missteps. All of us shall be judged by our ability to adhere to the orders given by the Omniscient Highest Elohim. But we will each individually be held accountable for the Messiah, whom God has given the authority to judge the living and the dead.

It is given to us to love the Adonai our God El Gibbor Jehovah the Giver of life, with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our might, in the knowledge that The Most Almighty shall show steadfast love to those who love Him and keep His commandments.

Deuteronomy 6:4-6 (TS98)
4 “Hear, O Yisra’ĕl: יהוה our Elohim, יהוה is one! 5 “And you shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with all your might. 6 “And these Words which I am commanding you today shall be in your heart,

Deuteronomy 5:10 (TS98)
10 but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.

I want to take those Words spoken by the Eternal Most High Divine Creator as infallible and higher than all the words and theological ideas of human beings.

Outsiders may think that those lovers of God only love God out of fear, but real lovers of God do not such a thing out of dread, but because they know He gives us the possibility to be here on this earth and provides us with many good things. Those who consider that

God loving is a strict “charge”, an order

have no idea what real love comprehends. Made in the image of God it is our genuine love that makes us want to please the Most High Ruler Elohim Hashem Jehovah.

I sincerely believe it is up to each of us to prepare ourselves for the Kingdom of God which He has planned for all those who are willing to comply with His rules and regulations, which are made for our own good. There, in a set apart or Holy Land, we shall come to live in peace.

The Most High chose the Hebrew people or Jews over all other people because they were willing to listen to Him and to worship Him alone and no other gods. In the Garden of Eden God promised a Messiah who would open the gates of the Kingdom of God for all those who are willing to recognise that Messiah as the sent one from God. He is the Way to God people have to find.

God, the El Shaddai, made a bond with His Own people and gave the goyim, non-Jews or those from all nations worldwide, the possibility to become part of God’s family. But each of them has to find the proper Way and has to abandon all the human traditions and false gods. In God’s Kingdom there is no place for the heathen gods, worshipping elements of nature or special people, like so-called ‘saints‘ or human and material gods, and no place for bowing down in front of graven images.

The Most High ordered us to keep to Him and to faithfully to go to Him, trusting Him as the One and Only One Who knows everything and can be everywhere at any time.

Believing in Him I also believe I should have no other gods besides Him and that we may not  make any idol for ourselves, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth.  I also believe we must not bow down to them or worship them. I also believe we may not misuse the Name of the Most High Almighty Divine Creator, the Elohim our God. I also remember the Sabbath day, it is to say that we do have to keep the seventh day set apart, as a Sabbath to the Most High our God, not doing any work that day. Further, I do know I have to honour my parents and may not murder and may not commit adultery, always respecting those around us and never doing something which I would not like to be done to me.

Deuteronomy 4:1-2 (TS98)

Deuteronomy 4
1 “And now, O Yisra’ĕl, listen to the laws and the right-rulings which I am teaching you to do, so that you live, and shall go in and possess the land which יהוה Elohim of your fathers is giving you. 2 “Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it, so as to guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I am commanding you.

Isaiah 2:11 (TS98)
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, the pride of men shall be bowed down, and יהוה alone shall be exalted in that day.

1 Corinthians 8:4-6 (TS98)
4 So then, concerning the eating of food offered to idols, we know that an idol is no matter at all in the world, and that there is no other Elohim but one. 5 For even if there are so-called mighty ones, whether in heaven or on earth – as there are many mighty ones and many masters – 6 for us there is one Elohim, the Father, from whom all came and for whom we live, and one Master יהושע Messiah, through whom all came and through whom we live.

Deuteronomy 4:2 (TS98)
2 “Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it, so as to guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I am commanding you.

Exodus 20:1-17 (TS98)

Exodus 20
1 And Elohim spoke all these Words, saying,
2 “I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery.
3 “You have no other mighty ones against My face. 4 “You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth,
5 you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.
7 “You do not bring the Name of יהוה your Elohim to naught, for יהוה does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart. 9 “Six days you labour, and shall do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath of יהוה your Elohim. You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 “For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.
12 “Respect your father and your mother, so that your days are prolonged upon the soil which יהוה your Elohim is giving you.
13 “You do not murder.
14 “You do not commit adultery. 15 “You do not steal.
16 “You do not bear false witness against your neighbour.
17 “You do not covet your neighbour’s house, you do not covet your neighbour’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbour.”
