WHO REALLY ALLOWS EVIL TO EXIST IN THE WORLD ?
IT IS TRUE THAT GOD CREATED EVIL ?
IT IS ALSO TRUE THAT GOD CREATED FREE WILL, HUMAN KIND, IN HIS IMAGE AND THE
IT IS ALSO TRUE THAT GOD CREATED THE TORAH AS THE ANTIDOTE TO EVIL.
AND IT IS ALSO TRUE THAT
THE NATION OF ISRAEL WAS CHOSEN TO BE GOD'S HOLY NATION.
BY A COVENANT SIGNED IN BLOOD, THE NATION OF ISRAEL
WAS CONSECRATED AS GOD'S VEHICLE FOR ELIMINATING EVIL.
ISRAEL FULFILLS THE REQUIREMENTS OF THIS
COVENANT BY INCORPORATING GOD'S WRITTEN TORAH AS ITS OPERATING SYSTEM.
THE RESULTS OF PERFORMING THE
LAWS OF GOD'S TORAH ARE SO DESIRABLE, THAT THE ENTIRE WORLD WILL SOON ADOPT THE TORAH AS ITS UNIVERSAL SOCIAL CONTRACT.
The purpose of the nation of Israel was to demonstrate that observance of God's laws earns blessings in the material
world. The mission of the nation of Israel is to establish the ethical, moral and spiritual way of performing every endeavor
in which mankind engages its energies.
Israel's voluntary compliance with its Divine social contract would
lead to tangible material benefits which would become the envy of the world and which would lead to the establishment of the
Torah as the model for attaining the optimal quality of life.
Israel's failure to fulfill this holy contract
would be met with corrective forces. If Israel maintained a non-compliant lifestyle, punishments of successively greater magnitude
would be applied in order to restore the nation to a state of compliance with the Covenant. If Israel remained incorrigible,
plagues, conquering enemies, exile and suffering without end would follow. As the consequences of non-compliance became insufferable,
some would contritely return to God. As of yet this has not happened in spite of the return of many Jews to Judaism. This
return of Jews to God is merely a return to the laws of the Babylonian Talmud. The nation believes that this fulfills the
Covenant. Tragically it does not !
THE JOB OF THE MESSIAH
It is the mission of the messiah to
restore the paths in which Israel must dwell. He will bring the nation of Israel to fulfill its Covenant and continue to fulfill
the biblical injunction of circumcision of the heart. This new Covenant is really a higher octave or spiritual dimension of
applying the Torah. Since the ego is the source of mankind's proclivities, the messiah will teach the nation to conquer
the ego. When the nation's people master their egos, the Spirit of God will be able to enter and become the nation's
animating force. He will teach Israel to find God as the Prophet Elijah did, i.e., in the "kola d'mamah dacha"
, "the still small voice". This spiritual revolution will transform the world and lead to the elimination of evil.
This is not only mankind's potential; it is mankind's birthright. Imagine that the Hebrew Bible is the 'software
of the conscience'. Now, with this software, the conscience monitors the emotions. When the people of Israel have emotions
and thoughts and actions purified by a conscience steeped in the written Torah; we will be a different nation and the world
will become a different world.
The messiah is the man anointed with God's Spirit. He receives instruction
from God so that His Torah and the other biblical scriptures imbues his every breath, thought, emotion and action. He is the
liberated avatar to whom the world's people will come to seek their own enlightenment and liberation. The problem is that
even those who profess to love and follow God, do not know that they have strayed from God's actual written Torah. They
believe that their lives, organized and governed by the Babylonian Talmud is the means of fulfilling their Covenant. And while
they pray for the coming of this man to bring their liberation, they do not understand that they themselves are obstructing
both his arrival and their liberation. They believe that fulfilling the halachah, i.e., the laws of rabbinic Judaism is doing
God's will. When corrective forces, plagues, destruction and exile befall them, their rabbis "spin" the events
in such a way that the people remain disconnected from the causal effects of their lifestyles and actions. They no longer
understand the relationship between their performance and the events which occur in the creation around them. It is the messiah
who instructs them and restores the people's understanding of what behavior brings blessings and what brings curses.
The messiah will teach the nation to find God in the 'still small voice' as Elijah the Prophet did. He will
teach us to be circumcised in our hearts. With our Written Torah as the software in our conscience (matzpoon in Hebrew), we
will be able to, more successfully, marshal our thoughts, emotions and actions.
