Micah 6:6-8, On this first Day after Christmas, what does the Lord now Require of Us and our Abundance? Living in the Rhythm of His Grace!

God’s desires for us are not hard to discern. He wants to bless us with salvation. The incredible gift of his Son is a powerful testimony to this truth. Yet salvation from sin and death is not something he wants to happen in our lives just once.

He wants the whole of our lives to daily reflect his salvation and to share it with others. When we act justly, we pursue mercy in our relationships, and we honor him with our worship from a humble heart then God’s salvation becomes real in our lives and impacts others with his grace. In the language of Jesus, we all now work for God’s kingdom to come and will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Micah 6:6-8 Authorized (King James) Version

Wherewith shall I come before the Lord,
and bow myself before the high God?
shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves of a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
or with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good;
and what doth the Lord require of thee,
but to do justly, and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with thy God?

The Word of God for the Children of God. Gloria! In Excelsis Deo! Alleluia! Amen.

Certain dates on the calendar need no explanation and demand no commentary. Several of them are anxiously anticipated and are even warmly welcomed. One in particular is December 25. Not much needs to be said about what that date means. Another is January 1. Without saying a word, you thought of gifts given and gifts received, you thought of vast amounts of ham, turkey, pumpkin pie,

None of those dates in December, January, require anything specific of us, but that’s not the case with another date. It needs no elaboration, but it is different because it requires specific action on our part: it is the first day after Christmas and the first day after New Year. Our homes are filled with fresh abundance, our hearts are filled with a fresh anointing of joy, ‘busy hands’ filled with new toys. Our souls are filled to overflowing with happiness for what we have all received.

Sometimes we think that because our lives have been abundantly blessed, our sins have been forgiven, it really doesn’t matter how we live. Wrong! And the prophet Micah, who wrote seven hundred years before Christ, understood that.

God’s Prophet Micah is best known as the one who foretold the coming Messiah would be born in the tiny, seemingly insignificant village of Bethlehem:

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting. — Micah 5:2

Micah is also known for his very practical “on the day after” teaching in chapter 6. The lesson comes in a combination question/answer verse: the answer is embedded in the very question it asks! “What does the Lord require of you…”

His three-part answer immediately follows:

Do justly… love mercy… and walk humbly with your God. — Micah 6:8

These three actions are not suggestions.

Nor are they mere options.

These behaviors — related to our actions, our affections, and our attitudes — are “required” of each of us.

OUR ACTIONS

Micah taught in a culture characterized by idolatry, immorality, and outright rebellion against worship of God. In fact, it was a culture much like the one we are experiencing today in our world. Micah has boldly proclaimed that certain things are “required” of those who follow the path of the Lord. First, we are required to “do justly.” And he was referring to much more than a ruling in a court of law — God requires that we are to live differently than those around us. Specifically, we should be both moral and ethical in our dealings with others.

We should always honor what is right and speak up for those who have no voice.

Justice has become a popular byword among young evangelicals today, but in our biblical text for today, God’s Prophet Micah was emphasizing action over mere talk. It is not enough for God’s people to love justice and to be cheering from the grandstands for those people working for justice. each of us is required to “do justly,” to put justice into practice.

Can you or I, on this day after Christmas 2021, contemplate what a difference it would make in our society today if more of us got ‘stirred’, began to “do justly,” and rushed into the defense of those who are suffering in unjust circumstances and situations. Again, doing justly is a requirement of God and not a suggestion.

OUR AFFECTIONS

God also requires us as Christ-followers to “love mercy,” and the emphasis continues to be on action, not thought. We are not simply to show mercy to others but to passionately “love mercy.” Mercy is best defined as “not getting what we deserve,” whereas grace is “getting what we don’t deserve.” Micah’s instruction here means that we are required to give to people what they don’t always deserve; we are to give them some slack and show them some mercy.

When we observe someone in a difficult situation, though, some of us tend to immediately think, before fact and truth finding, “verdict: Guilty… until proven innocent!” We take the seat of the judge when our “love” for mercy should be compelling us to be Christ’s hand extended to someone in need, whether or not that person deserves it. My wife is one who truly “loves mercy,” and she has always reminded me that our communities and our neighbors, even though we do not know names, need our love, encouragement when they least deserve it.

Twenty-five-hundred years after Micah wrote that God requires mercy from His people, the apostle John wrote this:

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. — 1 John 4:7-8 

For the one who truly loves God, doing justly and loving mercy are as natural an act as the volume of waters cascading over Niagara Falls.

OUR ATTITUDES

Lastly, the Lord requires us not only to do justly and to love mercy but also to “walk humbly with your God,” a requirement which clearly addresses our “day after Christmas” attitude. We are not to allow this perpendicular pronoun to raise its head: Pride! The “Big I,” is one of the greatest hindrances to receiving God’s blessing. This was the beginning of Satan’s downfall (literally) when he said, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:14). In sharp contrast, Apostle Paul’s future admonition says to,

If we have any compassion left inside of us, let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. — Philippians 2:1-3

Again, the overarching emphasis is on the action we take in response to Micah’s instructions. We are to walk humbly before God and others and ‘walk’ refers to how you and I live our “day after Christmas” lives. Enoch “walked with God” (Genesis 5:22), Noah “walked with God” (Genesis 6:9), and Abraham (Genesis 22: 1-19) too, and so has every man and woman who have known God’s favor.

What is required of us? Justice… you must DO it! Mercy… you must LOVE it! Humility… you must WALK it!

And Jesus is our ultimate example. Knowing that divine justice demanded payment for the penalty of mankind’s sin, and even though He Himself never sinned, Jesus went to the Cross to “do justly.” And from the Cross we see how He loved mercy, saying to those who had driven the spikes into His hands,

Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do. — Luke 23:34

Did Immanuel come to us from God with total arrogance? Did Rabbi Jesus walk among us, and act and minister to the people, doing each humbly alongside His Father? Recall, even on the evening of His betrayal and arrest — the evening of His greatest need — Jesus was upon His knees and washing His disciples’ feet! (John 13:1-17)

On this “day after Christmas” 2021, Micah 6:6-8 is still not a little superficial suggestion, but a requirement. So, keep your hearts, souls, hands and feet busy: do justly. Strive for something new, keep your heart broken for your neighbors: unconditionally love mercy, keep your head bowed: walk humbly with your God.

In the name of God, the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Spirit,

Let us acknowledge God’s mercy and forgiveness towards us, and humbly pray.

Loving Merciful Lord, it is my sincerest desire to walk humbly before You all the days of my life. Thank You for sending the Lord Jesus to live a perfect life so that He would die as the perfect sacrifice – so I could be imputed with His perfect righteousness… enabling, inspiring me, in His power, to act on behalf of my neighbors and walk humbly in service before You, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

  1. The Uncreated Light. Old Testament Apologetic @ wordpress.com
    Greetings “The Uncreated Light”, the theology of Monotheism flagrantly violates the 2nd Commandment of the revelation of the Torah at Sinai. It likewise negates the “Aggaditah” of Moshe sent as an “Angel” of HaShem to judge the Gods of Egypt. It further disqualifies the oath brit that Yehoshua cut the post “g’lut” generation, following the decree that Israel endure 40 years of exile in the Wilderness. The oath brit sworn at Gilgal, punctuated by the mitzva of brit melah — that HaShem would war against the Gods of Canaan just as did HaShem war against the Gods of Egypt.

    The Xtian Bible translations, one and all, an utter abomination. On par with the negative commandments of sodomy, witchcraft, and but of course the biggie – the basis for all 365 negative commandments within the Torah revelation – avodah zarah – the direct commandment of the revelation of the Torah at Sinai. When the nation of Israel heard the 2nd commandment following the first Commandment, (the golden calf, the revelation of tumah avodah zarah, Aaron the elder brother of Moshe the prophet, translated the Spirit Name of HaShem unto a word – אלהים), when Klall Yisroel heard the 2nd Commandment – they knew that they would surely die.

    The 2nd Commandment of the revelation of the Torah at Sinai, it defines ‘fear of heaven’. This key Torah concept goes by another name: Baal Shem Tov. Not the person who founded Chassidus following the 1648 Cossack revolt against Polish aristocracy. No one knows the horrific death count commited by Bogdan Khmelnitsky. That רשע bears responsibility for slaughter without cause. His cossacks murdered entire Polish Jewish communities. The Jewish leader known as the Baal Shem Tov, reorganized the shattered Jewish survivors – a truly righteous man.

    Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer, also known by the rabbinic acronym the Besht – an abbreviation for Baal Shem Tov\Master of the Good Name. A person with fear of heaven lives his\her life fully cognizant that the reputation of a person compares to a balloon hovering over a field of cactus. Bogdan Khmelnitsky, his name – a name of infamy, comparable to Stalin and Hitler and Poop Pius xii.

    Am writing a response to your opening thesis: [[[“””The Old Testament is emphatic in our understanding of God and our entire existence. The ideology that God in the Old Testament is somehow a different god than in the New Testament has it’s roots in Marcionism and Gnosticism. Such a distorted subversion of the truth has lead to this mindset as more and more commonplace today. The Old Testament is vital to the essence of Christianity, I seek to dispel this erroneous notion of different gods, refute frequent arguments for it, and show how God’s love is throughout the Old Testament and not just the New Testament. May God aid this to be edifying and beneficial to all who read it. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”””]]] Emphatically reject your Amen. אל מלך נאמן has nothing what so ever no part or portion with your absurd thesis statement.

    Am an Israeli so we definitely do not know one another. But it appears to me, based upon the noise you write about “The Heresy of Gnosticism” that you’re either a Catholic or Orthodox persuasion Xtian. Gnosticism long preceded the Catholic Protestant split. That 30 year War which likewise culminated in 1648, it killed more people comparable to the carnage of World War I. That first European Civil War in the 20th Century killed the British empire. True it did not formally collapse until after the 2nd European Civil War of that Century. The good name of Europe hopefully shall never recover following the Shoah war crimes against humanity. Gone the ‘White Man’s burden’ to govern the dark skinned inferior races.

    Most Xtians with whom swords have crossed, they get easily offended and erase my comments. As if criticism of their ‘holier than thou’, their presumptions of scholarship, their outright arrogant attitudes, constitutes as a personal attack upon their characters. Yidden we conclude the Shemone Esrai da’avening with
    אלהי נצר לשוני מרע ושפתי מדבר מרמה וכו
    Its a truly beautiful way to conclude Jewish tefillah. But Xtians as a rule think they have no reason to learn the T’NaCH in its original tongue. So shall not overly burden you by revealing your absolute ignorance.

    Wrote a rather long comment on your post: Septuagint vs. Masoretic Text which you did not erase. Bravo. But I should address your slander made upon the Talmud. In that post you write:
    [[[“””The Masoretic Text is the traditional Hebrew text of the Jewish bible, “This monumental work was begun around the 6th century ad and completed in the 10th by scholars at Talmudic academies in Babylonia and Palestine.” Right on the outset, the question arises why do Christians value the translation of scholars at the Talmudic academy? The Talmud that blasphemes our Lord Jesus Christ saying He is burning in hell (Gittin 57a) and that our Holy Lady Theotokos is a whore.”””]]] Honestly this business of cherry picking, taking something completely out of context merits a rebuke. This tumah slander Joseph Goebbels would applaud.

    Goyim (a term of respect, contrasted by the Xtian “Pagan” term of contempt) do not know the difference between the Mishna and the Gemarah. Talmud to the vast majority of brain washed Xtians, it amounts to just another 4 letter cuss word. The Mishna, codified in about 210 CE (the BC AD time reference Jews do not give any respect. Xtianity worships other Gods). The specific Mishna in the 5th chapter of Gittin (do you know what that means?) addresses some of the consequences of the Bar Cochba revolt, specifically the fall of the fortress of Beitar. No less than half of the Jewish population living in Judea died fighting that revolt against Roman oppression. Jews endured a 2000+ year g’lut\exile as a result of this terrible defeat. Not till the 20th Century have the Jewish people suffered such a horrific extermination.

    That Mishna addresses the legality of סיקריקון\SICARICON – property stolen by Roman soldiers. That misquoted Gemarah never directly condemned a mythical imaginary JeZeus son of Mary. It taught a mussar about the distinction between disgracing an Israel, even if that Israel worships avodah zarah — from disgracing a Goy, who worships avodah zarah. Have addressed this other post because Monotheism violates the 2nd Commandment of the Torah revelation at Sinai — your thesis statement which I quoted in [[[“”” “””]]] above.

    Every bible translation corrupt and evil. One and all totally inaccurate. How? A reasonable question which merits an immediate response. The Talmud (the learning of Mishnaic common law as expressed by the Gemarah commentary made upon the Mishnah), the codification of Jewish law produced by Judean society before the g’lut\exile by the Romans. Rabbi Yechudah HaNassi\President wrote the Mishnah about 80 years after the fall of Beitar to the Roman legions. Rabbis Ravinna and Ashi sealed the Gemarah text commentaries made upon the Mishna about 450 CE.

    Rabbis replaced the P’rushim, translated into the Greek word Pharisees in the new testament. The P’rushim taught Torah during the 110 year period where Judea ruled itself as an Independent nation. Following the fall of Judea to the Roman empire, rabbis replaced P’rushim.
    The latter lead the Civil War against the Hashmonaim kings who broke the alliance made with the P’rushim, cut during the Independence War against the Syrian Greeks. After seizing the reins of government the Hashmonaim kings preferred the more malleable Tzeddukim traitors.
    The Hashmonaim kings therefore broke the previous alliance with the P’rushim, and cut an alliance with the Tzeddukim (translated into Greek as Sadducees) assimilated priests\cohonim of the House of Aaron who rule as the entitled 2% of the Judea banana republic ruled by Persian and Greek empires. A long Civil War erupted immediately thereafter. That Civil War lasted approximately 100 of the 110 years the Hashmonaim kingdom ruled as an Independent nation. A complicated piece of history which you most probably know nothing about.

    The fundamental distinction which separates the Talmud from the avodah zarah of Xtianity, the latter forever talks about the Gods. Whereas never once mentioned the Name of HaShem within all 20 volumes of the Talmud. Upon what scales of Justice does Israeli Independence as a free nation stand or fall? Justice Justice Pursue. The entire T’NaCH & Talmud focuses upon this single issue.

    The last mitzva Moshe the prophet exercised his energies before he passed, establishing 3 of the 6 cities of refuge. No man, not even Moshe, could build 3 cities in a single day! Moshe the prophet established the small Sanhedrin federal courts of lateral common law. The T’NaCH & the Talmud both learn by means of precedents. Precedents define how common law court rooms function. All biblical translations – evil. All biblical translation expunge the order of sugiot from the T’NaCH. Comparable to removing all paragraphs from a Term research paper.

    The organization of the T’NaCH Books of literature into sugiot serves as the foundation by which later scholars can compare and contrast similar sugiot; and thereby learn the mussar which each and every sugia of the T’NaCH commands unto its required k’vanna (roughly translated as “intent”).

    This address has reached a bit more length than originally planned, thank you for your patience. Let’s learn. Shall not address any new testament passages because Ezra and the Men of the Great Assembly sealed the T’NaCH like rabbi Yechudah sealed the Mishna like Rav Ashi and Ravina sealed the Gemara forming the Talmud. This sealed masoret\tradition thereby became the permanent inheritance of all generations of Jews. All generations build our Torah faith based upon this shared masoret. Earlier to present generations equally share an identical masoret by which they learn the responsibility of ruling the oath sworn lands with justice … blessing or curse.

    Oral Torah exists as logic. Logic respects no personal “ego this” or “I believe that”. Law represents reaching a legal decision based upon precedents. Both the study of the T’NaCH and the study of the later Talmud — both stand upon the יסוד\foundation of precedents. T’NaCH commands mussar commandments. Talmud commands halachic ritual observances woven together with T’NaCH mussar commandments. Comparable to a loom which has a warp and weft opposing threads. The יסוד\foundation of the entire Talmud, the kabbalah of פרדס chariot mysticism taught by Rabbi Akiva. All the rabbinic authorities within the Talmud, they all follow and base their legal opinions upon the פרדס kabbalah taught by Rabbi Akiva. All rabbinic opinions expressed in the Talmud obey as students – the kabbalah Rabbi Akiva taught.

    This kabbalah defines the whole of the 20 volumes of the Babylonian Talmud. The Romans killed Rabbi Akiva in the Bar Kokhba war. They attempted to murder all his talmidim. Five survived from some 20,000 students of Rabbi Akiva who all died during the war against Rome. And from these 5 survivors comes the entire Sha’s Yerushalmi and Sha’s Bavli. The Gaonic Midrashim bases itself upon their kabbalah. Talmud stands upon the יסוד of פרדס, while the Siddur (over 248 prophets involved in its codification of tefillah known as the Shemone Esrai) stands upon the יסוד known as מעשה בראשית. The scholarship of the two combined kabbalot form the warp and weft known as Judaism.

    Shall now learn the following based upon the rule of learning by way of precedents. (1) Deuteronomy 4:31. (2) Jeremiah 31:20 (3) Joel 2:32, no such p’suk exists. (4) 2 Kings 2:23-24 T’NaCH has no chapters and verses. Jewish scholarship upon the T’NaCH does not cherry pick verses, taken totally out of context, as does Xtian scholarship. Starting with the letters of Paul, and followed thereafter by the Books of the gospels. In sequence of the time their manuscripts first became published.

    The sugia of דברים ד:א – כד.

    The mussar which Moshe the prophet commands Israel on the last day before he passed from this world. Prophetic mussar mitzvot MUST derive from Torah commandments. Xtianity, big on their theology of messiah, and total silence upon which of the 613 commandments serves as the basis by which the prophet Shmuel anointed king David as Moshiach! Any attempt to impose any mitzva independent of Torat Moshe qualifies as the worship of בעל פעור — (a reference to the war with Balak and Bilaam).

    The prophet then proceeds to define the distinctions between wisdom and understanding which define all Torah scholarship. Tefillah, for example – a duty of the heart. Prayer by contrast a plea to the Gods in the heavens. The prophet gives a solemn warning not to forget the revelation of the Torah at Sinai, which the biblical translations expunge. They all violate the first and second commandments of the Sinai revelation. JeZeus did not take Israel out of Egypt and has no connection to the Spirit Name of HaShem which no word can communicate. Aaron erred on this exact point when he translated the Spirit name of HaShem unto אלהים. No bible translation nor koran ever once brings the Name revealed at Sinai. Therefore all Goyim reject the revelation of the Torah at Sinai and consequently worship other Gods. All word translations of the Name: Yahweh, Jehovah, Lord, JeZeus, Allah – all exactly duplicate the sin of the Golden Calf.

    Avodah zarah does not translate as idolatry. Idolatry limits the reality of the Gods to 3 physical dimensions, as does the modern scientific method which limits reality to empirical physical evidence – similar to the mistake Euclid made in his 5th axiom of geometry. But avodah zarah stands upon the Torah negative commandment: not to follow the ways of Egypt and Canaan; all Goyim which reject the revelation of the Torah at Sinai. Like as do all Xtians and Muslims.

    Catholics bow down to their crucifix crosses. Protestants removed JeZeus from their crosses based upon this Torah. Why did HaShem take Israel out of Egyptian slavery? This key question defines the entire Talmud. Justice Justice pursue. Justice comes from courts of law. Justice first and foremost a domestic local issue. How does Israel not forget the brit? We remember the oaths which our forefathers swore in the Name of HaShem (the 1st commandment) and we do mitzvot לשמה. The opening Mishna of גיטין teaches that Jews in g’lut lost the knowledge how to do mitzvot לשמה.

    The sages advice, learn the prophet Isaiah to grasp the prophetic mussar which defines the above פרק\sugia of Torat Moshe addressed above. A similar sugia precedent from this prophetic source: ישיעה יא:יא-יד:כז. The vision of geulah from g’lut! The empires of Babylon and Assyria utterly and totally destroyed, like the army of Par’o after the splitting of the Sea of Reeds. Why does HaShem bring destruction and g’lut upon mighty empires and unto Israel? The empires ruled with cruelty and oppression and Israel failed to rule the oath sworn lands with justice. The mussar rebuke of Isaiah defines the k’vanna of the פרק of Torat Moshe learned above. Learning through common law precedents defines the wisdom of the Torah.

    All Xtian biblical translations, when they expunged the Order of sugiot from the T’NaCH lost the ability to learn the Torah by the logic of comparative sugiot. (2) ירמיה לא:כ-כא. A similar case/precedent ירמיה ו:כא. The mussar rebuke: when Israel forgets to do the commandments לשמה. The (3) ?. And lastly (4) מלכים ב ב:א-כב. The precedent sugia of similar mussar: מלכים א ב:כו-מו. Blessing contrasted by cursing. Herein the T’NaCH learns mussar, applicable to all generations of bnai brit, based upon the wisdom of precedents learned by comparing similar or contrasting sugiot. Sugiot define the Order of the Hebrew T’NaCH and like (3) ? Sugiot do not exist in any Xtian biblical translation of evil.

      8. Thomas E. Meyer Jr quotes Brother Lawrence (1605 – 1691)@wordpress.com Micah 6:6-8 – compared to 5:2, On the first Day after Xmas, what does my idol on a stick now Require of Us and our abundance? Living in the Rhythm of his Grace!
        Tom blogs that his Gawd has a simple vision for all Humanity. [[[“””God’s desires for us are not hard to discern. He wants to bless us with salvation. The incredible gift of his Son is a powerful testimony to this truth. Yet salvation from sin and death is not something he wants to happen in our lives just once.”””]]]. He confuses the 5:2 reference with the birth place of David with that of the Roman\Greek counterfeit, wherein the Roman characters in the new testament fiction, mockingly declares this fictional man as ‘king of the Jews’. Such revisionist history\church propaganda/ Xtian preachers continually has vomited for 2000+ years. As if prophets could miraculously see some 700 years into the future, and their predictions merited a close watch with great anticipation and anxiety. This טפש פשט narishkeit rubbish merits not short of loathing and absolute comtempt.

        What a lot of hoey apothecary. And yet Xtian Apologetics applauds this LSD trip theology throughout its long history of murder and bloodshed. People quickly found themselves, and their wives and children and neighbors violently murdered if they challenged the Church Party line & religious propaganda, preached continuously to ignorant lords, serfs and slaves – to keep them “Saved” while enslaved unto church dogma. Tom, just another preacher of the reactionary Church Party line. He totally ignores the savage brutal barbaric history of Xtian church dominated Europe during the Dark and Middle Ages. His preach totally indifferent to the rebellion by both serf and slave common Man, which expelled the church from its perch of domination following the American and French revolutions.

        Xtian revisionist historians love the ‘history’ of their bibles … just as long as it ignores church oppression and injustice throughout the entirety of its intractable monolithic domination over barbaric European societies and\or civilizations. The slaughter of the 30 Years War, fought primarily within the Holy Roman Empire (1618 – 1648), its death count compares to that produced by World War I. Wars of religion have deformed and distorted the European soul, worse than did the cruel lash torture Quasimodo, in Victor Hugo’s novel: The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

        The Peace of Westphalia ended the the Thirty Years’ War and Eighty Years’ War, it brought “peace” to the Holy Roman Empire, closing a calamitous period of European history that killed approximately eight million people. Martin Luther and John Calvin considered the Rome corrupt due to the self serving dogma which promoted indulgences. Deep ideas of prophetic mussar never once crossed the violent prone unhinged minds of any Xtian leader, especially during times of social turmoil, anarchy, & chaos. That same year, 1648, exploded the Cossack pogroms which obliterated Jewish communities across the Ukraine and Poland. The horrors of these pogroms easily matched, they even surpassed the racial slaughter which the German mobs: both serfs & aristocrat war criminals alike, committed during the first Crusades.

        The problem with church propaganda preaching their lovy-dovy JeZeus narishkeit unto ignorant aristocrats, noblemen, and serfs; this preachy preach accomplishes nothing when the minds of barbarian non brit Goyim experience and enter into their emotion crazed “rut”. The males march off and murder all in their path, comparable to a plague of locust which destroys everything that sprouts from the earth.

        Never does any Xtian theologian ever ask, what causes mass insanity to repeatedly rape the primitive minds of European Xtians. Why does belief in JeZeus always collapse and fail during times of social turmoil or war? At the critical juncture, why no Xtian leader has ever stood and given heart to primitive European Xtians. Stood and Commanded them to stand fast in their faith, reject committing war crimes atrocities … and the flock obeys and listens to their “shepherd”?! When President Bush permitted the torture of capture, even illegally abducted prisoners, not a single Priest or Pastor condemned this war crime against humanity. Never in the 2000+ years, where the Church bore the responsibility to morally guide the faithful, has ever such a righteous leader ever arisen among the European peoples. Muhammad Ali, the greatest world Heavy Weight champion, he denounced the illegal Vietnam War. Martin Luther King Jr, together with Malcolm X, they rose up and denounced American Apartheid against black people. Where was JeZeus when Mehmed VI, Stalin and Hitler committed mass genocide in Europe?

        Always, and only after war crimes guilt, does the church regret and abhor that senseless bloodshed. But never has any Xtian church ever tried and convicted any European church leader for his failure to give moral leadership and guidance when strikes the Torah curse: “the plague of locusts”, ‘(משל\\נמשל)’ converts Xtian minds into blood eating vampires and werewolves. The church always fails; due to the craven cowardice of church religious leaders. Their complete lack the courage to take responsibility for the actions taken by the Xtian people, who compose and organize Xtian society across Europe and Russia.

        Shall now study the sugiot which contain the cherry picked p’sukim of Tom’s preachy preach. As a rule, when learning minor prophets, due to the brevity of these books, the search for close precedents, comparative sugiot, comes from Major prophet books. Shall attempt to learn Tom’s prized p’sukim by duplicating the style of difficulty\answer by which the Gemarah learns every Case\Rule common law Mishna. The Mishna, written much later, long after Ezra and the Men of the Great Assembly sealed the T’NaCH literature as a closed Canon\masoret/tradition – the eternal inheritance of all generations of bnai brit Israel. Encourage the reader to question the precedent compared to מיכהו:א-ח.

        This sugia contains the p’sukim of choice which Tom so adores. Propaganda rhetoric narishkeit always, as a rule, takes p’sukim totally out of their surrounding sugia contexts. This classic error defines all new testament theology. This most basic and fundamental perversion, by itself alone makes treif\unkosher/the new testament abomination.

        The sugia comparison מלכים א ו:יא – ז:נ, the response to Tom’s blog. Industry stands upon measurement tolerances. The Hebrew term “middot” means “measurements”. Might trust a hardware store yardstick to measure and cut a fence post, but not to check a precision aerospace or medical component. The 1950 US military standard Gage Inspection established measurement tolerances to a 10:1 Gagemakers rule. “The accuracy tolerances of the measuring equipment should not exceed 10 percent of the tolerances of the parts being checked”.

        Righteous morality requires “tohor middot” which fit within the tolerances of righteous justice among and between bnai brit. All moral tolerances which fall outside of these defined middot tolerances constitute as “tumah middot”. How to measure and discern between tohor and tumah middot requires great precision. Employing abstract, undefined terms of moral rhetoric, for example: love, faith, and hope, these empty comfort words, they fail to instruct the required mussar whereby to educate Man to live a moral righteous and just life – especially during times of social anarchy and chaos.

        In manufacture, measuring equipment must meet certain accuracy specifications. The more precision accuracy required, the more expensive to manufacture the product. T’NaCH prophetic mussar education follows along these exact lines. רוח הקודש defines the middot which express the k’vanna of the revelation of the Name of HaShem, revealed in the opening commandment of the Torah at Sinai. As industry has its Calipers And Micrometers, these instruments, in their turn require a standard by which to check their accuracy. T’NaCH prophets, they define רוח הקודש middot. The discipline of learning a Prophetic sugia by comparing it to sugiot with the identical or close to identical middot, herein defines T’NaCH tolerances of tohor middot.

        The comparison which Torah scholars make to check and define tohor middot tolerances, herein defines the scholarship of all Talmudic Aggadic sources. Aggadic sources within the Talmud, they make a דרוש, they search for and compare NaCH tohor middot, designated as רוח הקודש. When a חכם stands and dedicates through the mitzva of t’shuvah tohor middot unto HaShem, this k’vannah within the heart of the חכם lives when that man applies the designated tohor middot learned from prophetic mussar commandments as the t’shuvah dedication of his Yatzir Ha’Tov within his heart. When this same man lives and expresses those defined tohor middot\tolerances, they shape his social behavior with and among his own bnai brit people.

        The distinction between the t’shuvah for tumah middot vs. tohor middot distinguishes the opposing k’vannot within the evening Shemone Esrai tefillah, stand opposed to the morning Shemone Esrai tefillah. At the revelation of the Written Torah at Sinai Israel feared the curse of death. At the revelation of the Oral Torah רוח הקודש tohor middot, which stand as מלך\king – they define the Name of HaShem within precise tohor tolerances לשמה. Therefore the evening kre’a shma, bnai brit man remembers accepting the revelation of the Written Torah death curse, he dedicates his t’shuvah for social behavior promoted by his Yatzir Ha’Rah; whereas the morning kre’a shma bnai brit man remembers accepting the revelation of the Oral Torah רוח הקודש middot\tolerances of doing and keeping the mitzvot לשמה — the blessings of the Torah — the dedicated t’shuvah made by the Yatzir Ha’Tov; which radically change how this man associates with his own people in social circumstances — especially so, during times of anarchy or social chaos.

        The Church denies the revelation of both the Written and Oral Torah? When anarchy and chaos witness the collapse & fall of the church moral authority to guide and direct righteous behaviors, no Xtian priest or pastor possesses the רוח הקודש to lead and inspire his flock to reject the tumah middot of Cain – not murder again and again and again his brother Abel. The mussar משל\נמשל instruction of the measurements of the Beit Hamikdash, requires חכמים to make the required דיוק נמשל whereby They learn the mussar commanded, for example, by this prophetic book within the NaCH. Aggaditah learns prophetic mussar as the פשט of the tales and stories communicated by the Aggaditah within the Shas Talmud. Aggaditah does not learn the T’NaCH Primary Sources as if they portray physical events, which actually occurred within the history of Israel as a kingdom. Such an empty and worthless moot point, it totally perverts the purpose and intent of all Prophetic mussar.

        The new testament counterfeit, exposed as false precisely on this score, for it views the stories and character personalities within the pages of the T’NaCH as actual historical figures. It limits thereby, the reality of the Gods to 3 physical dimensions, on par with Euclid’s 5th axiom of plane geometry; on par with the scientific method, which limits reality to empirical evidence. T’NaCH prophets command mussar. They do not teach, nor concern themselves with the moot point – the physical history of an ancient people who lived in the past a long long long time ago. Observance of mitzvot commandments applies only to the living, not to the dead. For this reason Jews who wear tzitzits and visit a cemetery, they tuck their tzitzits into their pockets so as not to shame the dead.

        Shlomo spent far greater energy on building his house and Court over building the Beit Hamikdash; the NaCH does not validate that this king, (King David serves as the “gold standard” by which all other kings compare.), dedicated any energy or efforts to established the small Sanhedrin courts of the 6 Cities of Refuge. King Shlomo made no designated place for the Great Sanhedrin Courts within the Beit Hamikdash. In his lifetime he permitted, even encouraged Israel to worship other Gods. Gods who did not bow and accept the revelation of the Written and Oral Torah at Sinai and Horev! Gods whom the Xtians and Muslims worship and adore.

      9. It’s my birthday. As a present, would like to introduce how my Rav taught me how to learn the T’NaCH combined with the Talmud.

        Isaiah speaks almost like poety. The Books of Tehillem\psalms likewise for the same reason – very difficult to read in the original Hebrew. However, my rav had me read 18 chapters of T’NaCH every day, finished it every 51 days. The Torah, its broken down due to the Shabbot Readings, each Parsha has 7 aliyot (people called up to read from the Torah on Shabbot), each day would read all the first, or second, or third etc., aliyot respectively within the whole of the Torah. Hence would completely read the Torah every 49 days.

        In this manner I learned Hebrew. Then Rav Aaron directed me apply this same technique to the Aramaic targum (translations). Within a year could read the T’NaCH & the Aramaic like as if it existed on par with English news papers. The precise goal which Rav Nemuraskii set for me to achieve. Rav Nemuraskii, only thereafter formally introduced me to the Midrashim. During my cycle of reading T’NaCH, learned together with Rav Nemuraskii, together with other talmidim, hilchot shabbot from the Misnah Bruer (a 20th Century commentary on the Shulkan Aruch … a commentary on the Arbah Turim). The author of the Tur, the son of the Rosh. The Rosh one of the greatest Talmudic scholars in all of Western European g’lut\exile.

        The first time Rav Nemuraskii and myself sat and learned the Talmud Bavli (a 20 volume code), we completed it in about 4 months. Cycling through the Sha’s (Six orders to the Mishna) Bavli (Babylonian Talmud), would learn approximately 20 pages every day. The Bavli, its based upon common law. Common law learns by way of precedents. Therefore by cycling through the Sha’s Bavli, completed the reading cycle, as said above, in about 4 months. In this fashion, fairly quickly familiarized myself with the Cases contained in the whole of the Sha’s Bavli. Cycling through the Sha’s, after about 4 to 5 years of this, only then did thereafter did Rav Nemuraskii demand that i learn each page of Gemarah (the commentary to the Mishna) by bringing precedents, duplicating the style of how the Gemarah learns the Mishna.

        At that time started exploring how the classic Reshonim (950 – 1450 CE) learned Gemarah. The Baali Tosafot (about 60 scholars in total, the grand children of Rashi), the French school of Talmudic scholarship, they learned by way of comparing outside precedents. When the Tosafot went off the dof\page of Gemarah/immediately familiar with the precedent that the Tosafot commentary introduced, to compare this outside halachah case to that of current dof of Gemarah which Rav Nemuraskii and myself learned. Needless to say, of all the Reshonim scholars, the Baali Tosafot hands down my favorite.

        Then came the B’hag, Rif, Rosh halachic commentaries. If a person understands that the Bavli exists as a common law legal system, then and only then do these halachic commentaries reveal their absolute genius. Common law compares legal Case rulings/halachot to a specific Case\Rule Mishna — something like a mamma bird chased after and followed by her chicks. The Talmud employs a Difficulty\Answer style throughout the Sha’s Bavli. It does not decide which of the “tens” of outside precedents by which it compares halachot to a specific case rule Mishna. The halachic codes made by the B’hag, Rif, & Rosh halachic commentaries – these Great poskim\deciders/, by their authority they reduced from multiple 10s to single digits the compared halachot woven into the context of the Case\Rule Mishnah. Their codes of law decided the chosen precedents which Torah observant Jewry should attempt to self-actualize in their daily lives.

        But by reducing the Gemarah precedents, they made it much easier to understand how the Gemarah logically compares outside halachic cases to any given specific Case\Rule Mishna. To learn these classic codes require comparing the halachic rulings which the Codes decide to the language of the Mishna; to thereby make a depth analysis of the language of the specific Case\Rule Mishna. That’s why these code always include the specified Mishna to the designated halachot, drastically reduced in number, and removal of all difficulty\answer debates. The Great codes, their scholarship compares something like an editor cuts and pastes & reduces news copy. Its the discipline of comparing halachic rulings to a specific Case\Rule Mishna which permits scholars to more easily discern the depth parameters which the language of that specific Case\Rule Mishna communicates. These Great halachic codifications permitted, so to speak, a student to more easily ‘see the forest through the trees’.

        However just as a garment woven on a loom has a warp\weft opposing threads, even though these tremendous tohor halachic codes did not bring any Aggaditah, students properly instructed understand Aggaditah, its relationship with the T’NaCH, as the most essential requirement whereby to understand the Case\Rule Mishna. Aggaditah learns T’NaCH prophetic mussar, it most essentially defines the “substance” of k’vanna, the tohor spirits of middot, which the Aggadic stories within the Sha’s {breath} into the Halachic”forms” of ritualized Jewish halachic law.

        Aggaditah makes comparisons to the sugiot\sub chapters/ of the T’NaCH, like what the sages of the Gemarah brings outside halachot, wherein the Amoraim scholars made legal comparisons to the Case\Rule Mishna. Consequently the Talmud, in my limited experience, by far the most complex text ever penned. The warp\woof relationship in the Talmud … the Aggadic\Halachic threads which make up the Sha’s Bavli and Sha’s Yerushalmi, they weave T’NaCH and Talmud into a unified fabric of faith.

        Then struck the defining disaster experienced by g’lut Jewry across Europe and the Middle East. The Rambam published his halachic code of Jewish law. Thereafter g’lut Jewry confused the priority rule of logic over law. This most basic priority rule, the B’hag, Rif, Rosh codes emphatically obeyed. Alas the Rambam halachic code, like a whore in church, it cast this most emphatic priority ie logic primary, and law secondary … that tumah code, it cast this absolute, most essential priority, unto the dumpster. Jews, almost overnight, lost the wisdom, how to correctly learn the Talmud.

        This terrible disaster, publication of the Rambam halachic code, which prioritized halachic law as supreme, it prioritized\supplanted/substituted\ assimilated Greek Aristotelian logic over Rabbi Akiva’s פרדס explanation of the Oral Torah logic format – first revealed to Moshe the prophet at Horev on Yom Kippur!

        A huge Civil War erupted, all the Gemarahs of France burned; Jewish exile communities in Britain, France, across the Germanic kingdoms, Spain, Portugal — basically all Western European Jewry — expelled from those countries. This Civil War terminated the period of Reshon scholarship upon the T’NaCH and Talmud. The Goyim, especially in the Germanic kingdoms imposed crushing taxation without representation upon Jewish refugee populations. After these feudal lords sponged virtually all Jewish wealth – these now totally destitute refugee populations – the German kingdoms expelled those despised Jewish paupers – from off their lands.

        The Church jumped upon the nigger pile, Rome decreed that any Jewish refugee living in Western Europe, that these despised Christ killers must consent to live within locked Ghetto prison walls. These illegal and unjust decrees, did not collapse till American revolutionaries told king George where he could put his taxation without representation, and Napoleon conquered those despicable Western European countries. Napoleon freed imprisoned Jewry from the 300 year wicked, unjust, and utterly insane unilateral imprisonment of Jewish refugees; never permitted to stand trial; nor permitted to challenge the evil slander made by their accusers. Why do English cars drive on the other side of the road? Alas, Napoleon did not conquer Britain like he did Western Europe.

        Faced with the choice of Ghetto imprisonment without a trial or fleeing to Eastern European countries like Poland and the Ukraine, millions of Jewish stateless refugees fled unto Eastern Europe. The ירידות הדורות curse, expressed itself thereafter, through the many and famous commentaries made upon the Shulchan Aruch; Yidden in the Pale of Russia had lost their ability, our wisdom, to correctly learn the Talmud. The Czars of Russia, even attempted to replace the Talmud with the Rambam code, as the basis for the education of Jewish youth. Then came the two European Civil Wars in the 20th Century, and those Europeans revealed the true worth of 2000+ years of Church morality.

  2. Roots Disciple-Maker and Trainer Year in the Bible@wordpress.com The Minor Prophets
    Would like to address your commentary made upon Hosea 11:1-9. On your blog you write:

    [[[“””We see here the full pattern of sin-punishment-restoration. God’s people are indicted for their sin of idolatry (see verse 2). Then, we see God responding in judgment to their lack of repentance in verse 5: “They shall return to the land of Egypt, and Assyria shall be their king, because they have refused to return to me.” Finally, in verses 8-9, God’s heart is laid bare as he moves in compassionate mercy to promise restoration after the time of judgment. This pattern is what we see in the Gospel. We get to glory in the good news of Jesus, who took on us the punishment for our sin. Paul proclaims this good news: “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21).”””]]]

    It would appear that you lack a formal education on the Hebrew T’NaCH. Your feeble attempt to link early 2nd Temple NaCH prophets to much later Xtianity qualifies, at best, as revisionist history. NaCH prophets command mussar. Mussar defines the meaning of the word prophesy. All T’NaCH prophets command mussar.

    A person does not set the foundation stone of a Multi-storey building on the 10th floor. Ezra and the Men of the Great Assembly had sealed the T’NaCH as the permanent masoret\traditions for all generations of bnai brit Israel, centuries before obscure Roman authors published their religious rhetoric and propaganda, known today as the new testament.

    Andrew Warrick The Particular Baptist@wordpress.com Preaching Christ from the Old Testament: A Defense of Single-Fulfillment Christ-Centered Prophecy
    Dear Andrew greetings.

    Your lack of knowledge and out right ignorance, down right embarrassing to witness. Would like to correct your disgraceful insights, perhaps you will “own” this mussar written from an Israeli to a simple Goy who clearly has almost no knowledge what so ever of T’NaCH literature. First, you’re not alone. Most Xtians who attempt to communicate their ignoble ignorance to me, likewise prove themselves as utter ignoramuses like yourself. To address specifically what you yourself have published:

    [[[“””Far from getting across their own thoughts, the prophets sometimes would express bewilderment over their message and their ministry. Daniel often did not understand his visions, and when he asked for understanding at the end of his prophecies he was denied, “for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end” (Dan. 12:9).”””]]]

    Very hard to correct, much less educate stupid. Daniel, the Book published in his name, a book of mysticism. The Book of Daniel, part of the Writings portion of the NaCH, N 0 T included within the Prophetic Books of the NaCH. Daniel, written in Aramaic. The much later Zohar, the classic Middle Ages Book of Jewish mysticism – likewise written in Aramaic. Move on.

    [[[“””Jeremiah had no motivation to speak himself, but God said, “whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak” (Jer. 1:6-7). The very structure of Jeremiah (and several other prophets) reflects what one would expect if he was simply faithfully recording the messages delivered to him rather than presenting his own work”””]]].

    The Roman authors who published the religious rhetoric propaganda known as the New Testament, had no more education in rabbinic Torah and Talmudic scholarship than you yourself. Their rhetoric propaganda compares to Joseph Goebbels efforts to justify the Nazi invasion of Poland. The gospel book of John, notorious for arousing Antisemitic rage within Jew hating mobs – throughout history. Rhetoric propaganda feeds off human emotions. Watch Mel Gibson’s “Passion”. The purpose of such films, just as bottom eating catfish contrast with trout, so too propaganda promotes powerful emotional disturbances within the heart of the viewing audience.

    All Xtian bible translations duplicate perversion and intellectual adultery. The Church denies the Oral Torah revelation at Horev (שמות לד:ו,ז 34:6-7). Chapters and verses – introduced by Xtian biblical translators – perverted Oral Torah logic. The Church confuses Oral Torah logic with the codification of halachah\law located in the Oral Torah code, known as the Talmud. Logic and Law two completely different and separate topics, which Xtian ignorance blurred and obscured.

    The revelation of the 13 middot (commonly translated as “attributes”), establishes a most essential priority: Order. All logic system formats require as a bare minimum – Order. Xtian chapters and verses replaced and expunged sugiot. A fundamental error committed by all generations of Goyim who profess a belief in JeZeus the mamzer son of Mary, they presume the possibility of grasping knowledge of Hebrew scriptures – completely and totally divorced – from the culture and customs of the people who wrote those scriptures.

    Oral Torah logic contrasts with, it does not compare to – ancient Greek philosophy of logic, developed by Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. The mitzva to love HaShem likewise does not require Greek agape definitions for love. Through the mitzva of kre’a shma, the Torah defines the meaning of love. As the acceptance of responsibility for bless/curse\life/death – the very same oath brit which Israel swore the נעשה ונשמע oath at Sinai – the eternal and sole inheritance of the chosen bnai brit Israel Cohen nation.

    Neither logic, nor swearing a Torah oath depends upon what a person personally believes – good, bad, or indifferent. Both the T’NaCH foundation and the later Talmudic “upper floors”, of faith, stand upon the יסוד of precedents as expressed through the system of jurisprudence known as “Common Law”. The later Talmudic literature obeys the example established by the much earlier T’NaCH precedent literature. The ratio between Aggaditah to Halachah within the pages of the Talmud, follows the precedent the Books of the Torah set. The Written Torah has 5 Books. The Opening Book – teaches Aggaditah, whereas the four Books that follow, they focus much more upon Torah commandments. This 4:1 Halachah\Aggaditah ratio likewise reproduced in the Babylonian Talmud.

    Late in the 19th Century German Protestant theologians attempted with their “Higher Criticism” of the Bible, to learn those ancient texts — as if the Jewish people had become extinct — like Dinosaurs. This line of scholarship collapsed early in the 20th Century. But the Nazis together with their Allied “enemies” picked up the fumbled attempt by literally murdering 75% of European Jewry in less than 4 years.

    The leaders of the Western Allied alliance made the conscious choice not to bomb the rail lines, permitting Nazi trains to transport Jews to the death camps. No victorious leader of the Allied Alliance stood trial at Nuremberg, condemned for war crimes. Defeated France became a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council – as if it had won the war against the Nazis.

    Communism, Fascism, Democracy — all equally guilty of committing, with knowledge, through acts of commission or omission – war crimes against Humanity. During the war, FDR condemned French imperialism in Vietnam, yet President Truman permitted the use of US ships to return French overlords back to Vietnam. Millions of innocent people murdered as a direct result of US imperialism in south east Asia. America lost its illegal wars in Vietnam and Afghanistan, yet sits as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, just like France.

    The sugia which contains the cherry picked p’sukim located in your blog page, ירמיה א:ד-י\1:4-10. Learning by way of precedents, compare ירמיה ב:כט-ג:י. Cross reference a similar precedent located in Kings מלכים ב ו:כד- ז:ב. The precedents learn that prophetic musser prioritizes the power of HaShem, and not the personal Will of the Prophet as your blog suggests.
