When found the necessary books to read and how to read them

The Bible is not only the best sold book in the world, it is also the book which gives the best advice, but that is something man does not like to accept from Some One or Some Thing he cannot see or touch, though if man would be willing enough to hear and feel, he could feel the presence of the Most High and feel His Guidance.

Until today lots of people have been rebellious against God and it is that rebellion which made it so difficult for mankind. When more people would follow the teachings of the Holy Scriptures we would have a much better world.

When a person has found what is important in his or her life he or she has come to see what books are the most important to read. Once this is known he or she has to come to find the right way how to read those books and how best to understand what is written in them.

The Bestseller all times, the Book of books or as it is known by many under the title “the Bible” should be recognised as the best guide in life for getting the best life. People also should know that that guidebook “the Bible” is not only restricted to what we call the Kethuvim Bet or ‘second writings’, the Messianic Scriptures, which is generally known under the name “the New Testament“. The Pre-Messianic Scriptures or Old Testament is a big part which is of utmost importance to come to understand the Word of God.

The book that tells about The Elohim, the Most Almighty Divine Creator and Most High Ruler of the universe is that Super Being or Spirit so many are looking for, can give mankind ideas why and how everything went wrong and why we are still in such a mess.

Those books all should read tell us how mankind evolved and how people who have seen sufficient evidence still suppressed the truth about the Most High Divine Elohim Hashem Jehovah.

Looking in those books you shall come to see and understand that the Divine Maker of all things was and is not pleased with man who keeps doubting God His right to be the Most High Governor. Therefore  God’s extreme anger is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people who restrain the truth [from being known and obeyed] by their wickedness. Look around you and you will find many people who shall try to convince you that god is quatch, that there is no such thing as a divine Creator. They and we should know that for what is known about God is plain to these people [i.e., to the Goyim or Gentiles], because God has also made it clear to them. Namely in each person, being created in the image of God, there is an intern feeling, an instinct, which whispers that they are an element of the creation by the Creator. For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities of eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, and even up to today nobody can ignore those things seen in the surroundings. Nature can be perceived through the things that the Most High has made. So, these people have no excuse [i.e., for not believing in the divine Creator the Elohim Hashem Jehovah].

Big problem of our world is that man loves his own words and prefers to listen to philosophies of men instead of listening to the Words written in the Bible. Not prepared to take those words serious but holding fast to the words of  so called theologians and commentators to the Bible, many are blinded by them and their churches. Listening to all those philosophical talks they are often engaged in their useless speculations and their foolish minds get filled with spiritual darkness because they enjoy so much those discussion on matters man wants to give his own twist, instead of taking those words written in the Bible just for what they say black on white.

I too can see, what I hope you shall see too, that there are many organisations, institutions, who claim to be wise and to be the only ones who can have you come to understand the Bible. They forget that is all in the Power of God. It is He Who gives the light and insight in His Ow Words. He does not need extra people to explain His Words. On their own God His words can tell everything. People perhaps can help others to come to read God His Word and can perhaps help to guide them to get through those Words. Then they can only hope they may be a helping hand in the Name of God, a workforce for the Most High Powerful Power and Giver of Light.

In this world we can see how many peoples have made themselves gods. We can see that there are people who call themselves ‘Christian‘, what should mean ‘being a follower of Christ‘, who ignore many teachings of that Christ and came to make their Jesus into their god, becoming fools according to the apostles, exchanging the honour belonging to the immortal God for the statues of a mortal god (when they believe Jesus died), mortal men, and birds, and animals and reptiles. Everywhere in the world we look for the way how people worship their gods we can see that like in the Catholic Church and other religious groups they have made pictures of their god to which they bow down and bring offers.

A lover of God must know that God has allowed this to happen. But He abandoned them to have the impure desires of their hearts, and to practice degrading behaviour with their bodies among themselves. For they exchanged the Elohim’s truth for the devil’s lie, i.e. for the sayings of the slayers or avengers of God.

Those books man should read from the Library of God shows man how and Who man has to worship and serve. Those books also show how man came to worship those things God Himself made. In those Holy books you shall be able to find why God allowed [or, abandoned] them to [practice] degrading passions and / or even allowed them to leave natural functions for what they were supposed to be and for what man and woman were originally made.

You shall come to see that the Guidebook, the Bible, shall show you why there are so many things in the world which may disgust you or may let you wonder if that is normal. You shall come to see how man went wrong in his desires but also how you can keep yourself on the right track.
You too shall be able to find ways to have the right desires for each other for not doing indecent sexual acts or having indecent behaviour against others. In those books you shall be able to find ways to avoid trouble or not getting a penalty because you shall have learned from them not to contribute to perversion or wrong acts.

By reading the Scriptures you shall be able to avoid degrading your mind and to practice those things which you as a decent person should do, avoiding all kinds of wickedness, evil, greed, and maliciousness. You shall come to see that when you read those books any form of envy, strife, deceit and malice shall go away form you, if you are willing to follow the good advice given in those Holy Books. The words in those books are no gossip, no slanderer, but are actual facts which we should take at heart. They show us not to be hateful toward God, not to be arrogant, proud and boastful, but to come respectful to all creatures of God, even to those who do not want to know about God.

I wonder if those who do not want to know about God and about the sent one from Him would be aware what they are missing. Probably not. They do not mind to do not kosher things as long as it can serve them. They are so much busy with their own good in the here and now. They do not mind not keep their promises or to show natural affection. Often we can see that they also are merciless.

We should know that these people know that God’s decrees require that those who practice such things deserve to die [i.e., either spiritual or temporal punishment], yet they not only do the same things [themselves], but even approve of other people who practice them.

Romans 1:18-32 The Scriptures 1998+  (18)  For the wrath of Elohim is revealed from heaven against all wickedness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,  (19)  because that which is known of Elohim is manifest among them, for Elohim has manifested it to them.  (20)  For since the creation of the world His invisible qualities have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, both His everlasting power and Mightiness, for them to be without excuse,  (21)  because, although they knew Elohim, they did not esteem Him as Elohim, nor gave thanks, but became vain in their reasonings, and their undiscerning heart was darkened.  (22)  Claiming to be wise, they became fools,  (23)  and changed the esteem of the incorruptible Elohim into the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds and of four-footed beasts and of reptiles.  (24)  Therefore Elohim gave them up to uncleanness in the lust of their hearts, to disrespect their bodies among themselves,  (25)  who changed the truth of Elohim into the falsehood, and worshipped and served what was created rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.  (26)  Because of this Elohim gave them over to degrading passions. For even their women exchanged natural relations for what is against nature,  (27)  and likewise, the men also, having left natural relations with woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing indecency, and receiving back the reward which was due for their straying.  (28)  And even as they did not think it worth- while to possess the knowledge of Elohim, Elohim gave them over to a worthless mind, to do what is improper,  (29)  having been filled with all unrighteousness, whoring, wickedness, greed, evil; filled with envy, murder, fighting, deceit, evil habits; whisperers,  (30)  slanderers, haters of Elohim, insolent, proud, boasters, devisers of evils, disobedient to parents,  (31)  without discernment, covenant breakers, unloving, unforgiving, ruthless;  (32)  who, though they know the righteousness of Elohim, that those who practise such deserve death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practise them.

People should believe more in themselves in in their Creator. When they would believe more in the Power of God they would know that it is He Who shall give them the necessary knowledge and the necessary guidance.
They also should know that God has given somebody to bring them to God. That man is Jesus, the sent one from God, son of man and son of God. He is the truth, the salvation and the glory of God in which man should come to believe that he (Jesus) is the Way to God and not God himself like so many churches preach, contrary to the Word of God.

When listening to Jeshua (Jesus) his words, presented in the Messianic writings, people shall have no excuse any more not to come to understand Who God is and what He has done and should also know how they have to behave in this world.

Are you willing to belong to the good people to whom Jehovah, the Only One true God of Israel, has given the Holy Land, because the others are so wicked?

Deuteronomy 9:4-6 The Scriptures 1998+  (4)  “Do not think in your heart, after יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim has driven them out before you, saying, ‘Because of my righteousness יהוה {Jehovah} has brought me in to possess this land.’ But it is because of the wrong of these nations that יהוה {Jehovah} is driving them out from before you.  (5)  “It is not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart that you go in to possess their land, but because of the wrong of these nations that יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim drives them out from before you, in order to establish the word which יהוה {Jehovah} swore to your fathers, to Aḇraham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Yaʽaqoḇ.   (6)  “And you shall know that יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stiff-necked people.

Let us not be stiff-necked (or having an iron sinew) not forgetting how God’s People had provoked the Adonai to anger from the beginning of their wilderness journey. They were liberated but forgot very quickly. Now the 2nd Adam brought also a liberation, though many have soon forgotten who it was in whose Name. Again those people who were liberated from death made them graven images. (This time no golden calf but golden crosses and other images of their god Jesus.) Until today lots of people have been rebellious against God. In this world of rebellion we can show to God we do not want to be the rebels but prefer to follow His Word and not that of man. to do that it is best to take up the Bible and to start studying thoroughly, so that you really come to know what God wants from you and me and from all the world.

Called Immanuel does not mean to be Jesus being God

Often Christians say the proof that Jesus is God is because he is called Immanuel. But if that would be so then we can find God still walking today in different places and sojourning in many families.

The world has known many people with the name Immanuel. Lots of Christians say because Jesus was called Immanuel he had to be God. This would mean that even today this god would be walking on this globe in many countries, because everywhere in the world you shall be able to find people who are called Immanuel or Emmanuel.

People with such name may be born in a family of believers in God, be it Jews, Christians or Muslims. With using the Hebrew name עִמָּנוּאֵל (‘Immanu’el) meaning “God is with us” or “God with us”, those parents probably wanted to show their gratitude to the Eternal Most Divine Almighty Creator God Who has blessed them with a child. Normally you should consider Immanuel to be a title and not as such a name.

Christ Emmanuel, icon with riza by Simon Ushak...
Christ Emmanuel, icon with riza by Simon Ushakov, 1668. According to the Gospel of Matthew, Immanuel refers to Jesus. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Emmanuel meaning “God with us” brings us to look at the one born, Jeshua in this instance to be a bringer of closeness with the Most High.  In this way for humankind Jesus was “God with us”, about whom many may sing glorious songs, shouting he is the “King of Kings”, “Almighty God”, “Wonderful Counselor”, etc. — all of which are titles, not names. We say “Mr. President”, “Mr. Speaker“, “Your Honor”, etc., but these are titles, not names, and as such Jeshua had as one of his titles “Immanuel”. Throughout the ages this title for Jesus and other biblical figures was also used as a name.

In Anglo-Saxon countries the name Immanuel or Emmanuel  is not so much used, but is quite common in continental Europe, especially in Belgium, France (in the spellings Emmanuel, Emanuel, Manuel and Manu  + for girls Manoe and Manou) , Spain and Portugal (in the spellings Manuel and Manoel). Americans so often refer to the proof that Jesus is God because he is called god and Immanuel. They do seem to forget that much more beings are called god and/or Immanuel.

I can assure you that though that I might be called Immanuel, I am not Jesus nor God or a god. I am way of being a god, but Jesus may have been a god and is still today for many a god, but that does not make him to be the Almighty God יהוה {Jehovah}. Also Jesus his name is far from what many call him today, because his name was Jeshua יֵשׁוּעַ (Yeshu’a). Yeshu’a is itself being a contracted form of Yehoshu’a  or Joshua). Yeshua ben Yoseph, better known as Jesus Christ, was the central figure of the New Testament and the source of the Christian religion. The same as the many people being called Jesus, Jezus, יֵשׁוּ = Jesu or Yeshu, Chesu, or יֵשׁוּע or Yeshu’, they nor Jesus are יהוה = Jehovah or Yehowah/Yehovah (sometimes also spelled Yahuwah) the Only One Whose Holy or Set Apart Name is for the Hebrew God, represented in Hebrew by the tetragrammaton (“four letters”) יהוה (Yod Heh Vav Heh), which was transliterated into Roman script as Y H W H.  Because it was considered blasphemous to utter the name of God, it was only written and never spoken, which resulted in the original pronunciation becoming lost. Today there are still many Jews who even do not write the titles of God fully and therefore write G’d. G’d His Name may have originally been derived from the old Semitic root הוה (hawah) meaning “to be” or “to become”.  The One Who was and always has been “The I Am Who I am” is “The I Am Who Is‘ but has nothing human.

וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֱלֹהִים֙ אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֔ה אֶֽהְיֶ֖ה אֲשֶׁ֣ר אֶֽהְיֶ֑ה וַיֹּ֗אמֶר כֹּ֤ה תֹאמַר֙ לִבְנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל אֶֽהְיֶ֖ה שְׁלָחַ֥נִי אֲלֵיכֶֽם׃ Exodus 3:14

14     God said to Moshe:
EHYEH ASHER EHYEH/I will be-there howsoever I will be-there.
And he said:
Thus shall you say to the Children of Israel:
EHYEH/I-WILL-BE-THERE sends me to you.

Lots of Christians seem to forget that in their Bible or Holy Scriptures is also written that no man can see That  “I am that which I am” without staying alive. Many saw Jesus and continued living, there even having been people who were already death and came to life again by Jesus calling them. This is in contradiction to the Bible saying in the Shemoth or Book Exodus

19     He said:
I myself will cause all my Goodliness to pass
in front of your face,
I will call out the name of YHWH
before your face:
that I show-favor to whom I show-favor,
that I show-mercy to whom I show-mercy.
20     But he said:
You cannot see my face,
for no human can see me and live!
John 1:18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has described him.

1John 4:12 No one has seen God at any time; if we love* one another, God is abiding in us and his love* is perfected in us.

The majority of Christians also say that their god is born on the 25th of December. First of all God has never had a birth. The Elohim Hashem Jehovah is the Eternal Divine Creator who has never had a beginning or birth nor ever can die, having no ending. Jesus the Immanuel, many Christians celebrate his birth at Christmas (25 December) was born the 17th of October 4 BCE, and as such has a beginning. He also was tempted more than once, whilst the God of gods cannot be tempted.

James 1:13 Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted by God, for* God is not tempted by evils and he himself tempts no one.

Their Jesus, for which they take the prophet and master teacher, rabbi Jeshua, was also sentenced to death (according to the prophesies in the Torah) and after doing God’s Will (and not his own will, which he would have done when he is God) really died at the wooden stake after he himself had cried to God and had asked Him (Jehovah God) why He (God) had abandoned him (Jesus).

Deut. 21:22       Now when a man has sin-guilt, (resulting in) a sentence of death,
and is put-to-death,
and you hang him up on a wooden-stake,

Acts 5:30 The God of our fathers lifted up Jesus, whom you* slew, hanging him on a tree.

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ {Ps. 22:1} 47 And some of them were standing there, when they heard it, said, This man is summoning Elijah. 48 And immediately one out of them ran, taking a sponge and filled it with vinegar and placed it around a reed and gave it to him to drink. 49 And the rest said, Allow it, that we may see if Elijah comes to save him. 50 And Jesus having cried again with a loud voice, his spirit leaves. 51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was split apart into two pieces, from the top to the bottom, and the earth shook, and the rocks were split apart; 52 and the tombs were opened, and many bodies of the holy-ones who had fallen-asleep arose. 53 And coming forth out of the tombs after his awakening they entered into the holy city and appeared to many. 54 Now the centurion and those who were with him, guarding Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that happened, were extremely afraid, saying, This truly was the Son of God.

10 For* the death that he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life that he is living, he is living to God.

It is totally wrong to assume the one being called Immanuel to be an incarnation of the God of power Who

“did ride in His majestic robes of glory, resolved to light; and so one day He did descend, undressing all the way.”(George Herbert).

christmas-cribfigures1010749_640Christians should know that their celebration on the 24th and 25th of December, being called Christmas, has nothing to do with the birth of Jesus nor with the birth of God or with God having restrained His omnipotence within the frailty of human flesh. God never confined His omniscience, Him knowing everything, within the limitations of human thought, and never did He contain His omnipresence, being able to be everywhere at the same time, within the body of one human – Jesus of Nazareth.

God also never came to the earth to become a servant instead of One who is served.  It might well be that Jesus was born to be a king, willing to be treated as a slave, because when Jesus is the Messiah then he shall be the King of kings here on earth to govern the Kingdom of his heavenly Father, but when he lived in the Middle East some two millennia ago he was an ordinary carpenter and an incredible story teller who was able to do incredible wonders or miracles.

Lots of people may try to humiliate God, but man should know that man can do nothing to God. He is the Ruler and the Omnipotent Supreme One and Only Creator and Governor of all the Universe.

All christians should also remember that it is the Most High Divine Creator Who, in the Garden of Eden made His first promise to send a solution against the curse of death. The Same God further promised to Abraham and his offspring that out of the lineage of King David would come that King of kings for a set apart or Holy Land.

In case Jesus is really the promised one from God, then he is the greatest gift mankind received with him because by god accepting his offering like a lamb, he whitewashed with his blood (something god does not have) our sins. can give to Jesus is a life lived above the common. His giving himself in the hands of his God, doing not his own will but that of his heavenly Father, he made man righteous again, in the eyes of the God of Abraham, so that all, by his death, might live.

The world has to know that the Divine Creator wants all people to unite and to recognise the Messiah, getting to be like him all of one mind, having compassion one of another. This oneness of mind does not demand the monotony of similarity, but unity in variety. We shall never be of one mind in the sense of all holding the same opinions; but we may be all of one mind when, beneath diversities of opinion, expression, and view, we are animated by a common devotion to Christ.

No man can have the mind of Christ who has not the courage to have the eyes of Christ. He rejected the traditions of men and saw things for himself. We too have to reject the human traditions and have to put our own selfish will away, like Jesus did. We too should be careful not to participate in pagan traditions, like Christmas and Easter.

Christians may anticipate the happy day when the whole world shall be converted to Christ; but then the gods of the heathen shall have to be cast to the moles and the bats;

when Romanism shall be exploded, and the crescent of Mohammed shall wane, never again to cast its baleful rays upon the nations; when kings shall bow down before the Prince of Peace, and all nations shall call their Redeemer blessed.

Some despair of this. They look upon the world as a vessel breaking up and going to pieces, never to float again. We know that the world and all that is therein is one day shall be confronted with an enormous battle (World War III or Armageddon). Before those end-times all lovers of God should know that it is time to unite and to remember the Divine call,

Psalm 50:5-6: 5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. 6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.

Real lovers of God have to worship only One True God and strive to be simple and sincere toward all, seeking not to please and honour the self, but the Most All-Mighty God of gods, doing away with everything that is not according to the Wishes of God.
