Did you know these alibis are not modern new age thoughts? they were given to Moses by the Children of Israel in the desert and this was his answer to them...
Deuteronomy 30:11-16 (NLB)._1 ”...Obeying these Commandments is not something beyond your strength and reach; for these laws are not in the far heavens, so distant that you can’t hear and obey them, and with no one to bring down to you; nor are they beyond the ocean, so far that no one can bring you their message; but they are very close at hand--in your hearts and on your lips--so obey them.”
We have access to much knowledge in these latter days (Daniel 12:4). We can read His words that He has given us and learn directly from Him. Is it hard to do the CREATOR’s Will? No, not at all. We just have to make up our minds that what He says is what we are going to do and follow through with it. Where it becomes hard to follow the Commandments is when we look to man, government, society, family, etc. to get their approval instead of looking to our SOVEREIGN for His backing and approval.
Nevertheless, let us consider Adam and Eve—they were sent out into the world unprepared—they had no clue as to what to expect. WHY? Why would a loving CREATOR send them out into the world so unprepared? Why would a loving CREATOR create a new brand new being fashioned after Himself and just let the adversary_2 have a clear opportunity to lead them astray.
So why? Didn’t the SOVEREIGN know that the adversary would tempt humankind into all sorts of wrong religious practices that would bring unhappiness? Yes, He knew. So why did He set the world up this way? Because He is seeking a staff of people who have learned from not following the red flags we overlook in life. He wants to find people that will heed His ancient writings and seek Him out. People who are tired of the pain in the “school of hard knocks.” People who cry out to Him for forgiveness and for the gift of His Spirit and also His love. People who will use the gift of His love to teach others—if not in this world then they are preparing to use the gift in The Wonderful World of Tomorrow.
Some might say we are commanded to love ETERNAL (Deuteronomy 6:5; 30:16) and there is no love given in return, but that is not correct. There is a streaming torrent of love that flows from Him. Human kind, made in His Own Image, has rejected that love beginning with Adam and Eve. They did not care for their Maker; they cared more for satisfying their own feelings.
All humans let feelings get in the way of doing what is right as defined by the Ancient Writings we call Scripture. We forget to remember that the inspiration behind those Ancient Words was inspired by the Ancient of Days who started with only Himself and His energy and created and formed the cosmos and all that is in it. He did that for one reason. What is that reason? He CREATED all of this to produce millions upon millions of human beings in a learning and testing situation. Why is that? He is looking for a staff to teach the rest of humanity in The Wonderful World of Tomorrow. Why? So that He will have a family of millions, nay billions that want to dwell with Him as He is desirous to dwell with us His children.
The goal of this issue of the Hope of Israel is to share what we have learned on our quest of the beginning of creation. We are not perfect and we are not asking you to believe what we say just because we said it. We are asking you to find out for yourselves if these words are true or not. We invite you follow that Quest and recommend that you read the footnotes as they contain extra information. To Quest you will need to care what our CREATOR thinks and you will need to seek His Spirit and His pure love.
Be sure to read the footnotes as they contain much background information.
