To believe that God's blessings for virtue; i.e., compliance
with His written laws; are a matter of chance or come sporadically; is a kind of idol worship.
God is everpresent and just. He is true to His word and the list of blessings for
performance of His laws is plain and inescapably clear.
A devout Jew often finds himself in the existential quandry of wondering why
the impeccable performance of his religious obligations do not consistently deliver the full list of biblical blessings. The
Jewish religion is a religion of precision. Every act of life, in each moment of his existence, is accountable and proscribed
by ritual acts he is obligated to perform with the most intense mustering of all his faculties. If intention is weakened by
fatigue or frailty or the inability to focus and remain concentrated; the religious Jew is plagued by guilt. He has failed
to keep up his part of the Covenant. He has let his brethren down.
The Book of Job, chapter 38 : 1 - 11 makes clear how precise God is about His attention
to the details of Creation. No one can maintain an honest debate who seeks to convince others that God created the world and
just went off and left. History too, is testimony to God's Presence. Yet all religions affirm, with absolute iron wills, that
their religion is the true religion. And testify (or perjure) that their faith is the precise manifestation of the will
of God. Yet all religions unhook themselves from reality as soon as they profess a belief system which is not in conformance
to the written Law, the Torah, The Five Books of Moses, which God gave to the nation of Israel in the no man's land called
the Wilderness of Sin; i.e., the Sinai Desert.
And further, when no blessings come as a result of their religion's manifestations,
they continue to depart from reality by spinning the reasons for the absence of the abundant blessings which God promises
to deliver to the faithful representatives of His will.
The nation of Israel is held to a particularly high standard, because it is the people
God chose to deliver the message - accurately !
As we have discussed, the religion invented by the rabbis of Israel is presented
as the authentic, faithful, genuine, God - given expression of His will, intent and Law. For a religion which is so demanding
and precise, it is odd that so many of its practices are not supported by any biblical reference. It is odd that many of the
practices of Judaism are contrdictory to biblical laws.
For those of you who follow the faith of our fathers and wish to help our people
get back into God's good graces; I strongly advise that you read each week's Torah portion with all your faculties and the
full force of your attention. I promise that, if you do, you will have to question the veracity of the religion which we have
been practicing. In addition, when you come to the honest and inescapable conclusion that God is precise about His will, intentions
and the just dispensation of His blessings. One can count on Him if He can count on you to comply with His Law. And if the
precision with which His blessing are promised to arrive for faithful compliance is absent; have the good sense to ask your
brothers and sisters if, perhaps, we have been in error these past 2000 plus years.
Make no mistake; Israel does not suffer because a sukkah has a branch above it or
because someone said a prayer incorrectly. Orthodox Jews weren't slaughtered because Reform and Conservative Jews are
not Torah observant while the Orthodox are innocent, but more visible.
Israel and Orthodox Jews in particular were punished because they never even thought
of commencing God's mission ! And even though not one rabbi or yeshiva student would know how to begin the
mission of developing biblicaly based ways of doing every human endeavor; they hold themselves out as the authentic model
of Torah compliance and the true representatives of God !
We are nation unhooked from reality. The idea that God's Spirit govern how everything
is approached and performed is foreign to us. The idea that there is an ethical, moral and spiritual model for every
human endeavor which we as a nation are charged with establishing; sounds like idol worship to us. Yet Noah's
prophecy in Genesis 9 : 27 has been read thousands of times by our great sages and our people without
any of them embarking on the crusade implicit in the phrase. And though God warns us not form projects that are not of
His spirit( Isaiah 30 : 1 ) we have built a life and religion doing exactly that for two millenia !! But we do afix our mezzuzzahs
on the doors.
So while the prayers are uttered with precision and the calls for the Moshiach to
come this year, and every year and really this time and when already? and what is God waiting for? ad nauseum; this people
does not wish to be acountable for its destined mission. So do they want the messiah to come ? Yes, but only if
they can still think of themselves as following the only true path. If they have to consider that the messiah will repair
the breach between their false representation of God and the real, true representation (Isaiah 58 : 12) of God; they will
not want the moshiach to come. If the orthodox, especially have to consider that their path of life is in need of
being restored to God's true path to dwell in ( Isaiah 58 : 12 ); then their choice will be for no moshiach and for further
holocausts. Is this being unhooked from reality ? Certainly. Is their an antidote for this suicidal insanity that has
been our path for two thousand long, agonizing years ? There is. It is simply the compliance with God's written
Torah. The written Torah. The Written Torah. THE WRITTEN TORAH !!! That's all folks.
And just so no one thinks only the orthodox are unhooked from reality; how out
of touch with the reality of a newly Islamofried Turkey are the leaders of the State of Isunreal ? Hey wake up Shimon
Perez and Ehud Barak and Bibi Netanyahu, the best friend the State Department and the UN have in their war against the Jews.
Israel is being surrounded by enemies in a ruse which is so elaborate that no one can see how insideous and intricate
the plan to destroy us actually is.
