Why The Rejection of Christian Messiah?

thumbs_brown-swirls-fractal-abstract-header-2760

The tension between the Jewish and Christian faith, understanding of Messiah, as well as the requirements of Messiah including family lineage, something I was unaware of until I started to study and research.  Why can’t true Jews accept Jesus, is it because they do not want to be “saved”?  No, so what is going on here?  A few things.  I will take it point by point.

First, God’s own words.  He says after they make the mistake in the Garden of trying to take on knowledge too soon that God knew they were not ready for, out of ego, that the ground and their labor is cursed, but not in the way Christians have come to understand cursed. It is because now humans rely on their own ego, on their own whims, on the ego and flesh self rather than divine aspect of self and consciousness to operate.  That is the sin, not original sin as understood by Christians, for that is something alien to God, the Jews and the Tenakh.  God himself makes it clear to Moses and others that no one pays for the sin of the other, each is responsible for their own crap, their own stupidity so on and so forth.  “Every man shall be put to death for his own sin.’ This concept is repeated in the Prophets, in Ezekiel 18: ‘The soul that sinneth, it shall die… the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.”  God also makes it clear that he accepts no sacrifice of flesh, for that is an abomination to him.  With all this, it is logical that the Jewish people can not accept Jesus as the Messiah.

Second, One God Only.  A Trinity, a multi faceted deity is Pagan to the Jews and Muslims also.  God can only be one as he stated himself in the commandments.  For them, this notion of a son, of a Trinity, three Gods, but yet one is God contradicting God and that won’t wash with them.  Either God is one as he said in the beginning or he was very confused or was not truthful?  When he speaks of let us create man in our image, by Jewish understanding he is talking to the sum of creation, which might explain why we have certain holdovers in our bodies and DNA because we are the sum total of creation.  

Third, Messiah, not the word Christians use for Messiah, is born of Two Human Parents and traces the lineage back to David,  through King Solomon (II Samuel 7:12-17; I Chronicles 22:9-10, which Jesus does not, he traces it back through Solomon’s brother and his Messianic lineage is according to the Christian understanding of Messiah through Mary and God’s Spirit being the dad.  That’s not what the Bible says in regards to the lineage of the Messiah.  For the Jewish people they could not accept Jesus and still today, real Jews can’t if they are to remain true to the world of the Tenakh.  Not to say they can’t appreciate that Yeshua played an important role in seeking to reform Judaism from being way too legalistic, more maybe Kabbalistic, and spiritual, they can.  Also according to Jewish theology,  The Messiah may not be a descendant of Jehoiakim, Jeconiah, or Shealtiel, because this royal line was cursed. (I Chronicles 3:15-17; Jeremiah 22:18,30). But according to Matthew 1:11-12 and Luke 3:27, Jesus was a descendant of Shealtiel.   Traditional Jewish definition of the term, means that  Messiah will make changes in the real world, changes that one can see and perceive and be able to prove, precisely because they take place in the real world the first time he comes. It is for this task that the Messiah has been anointed in the first place, hence the term, messiah — one who is anointed. These perceptible changes include: 6. The Messiah reestablishes the Davidic dynasty through his own children (Daniel 7:13-14).
But Jesus had no children.  In addition, according to the Tenakh, Messiah brings  eternal peace between all nations, all peoples, and all people (Isaiah 2:2-4; Micah 4:1-4; Ezekiel 39:9). Again, he does this the first time around through world leadership.  Obviously there is no peace. Furthermore, Jesus said that his purpose in coming was to bring a sword, and not peace (see Matthew 10:34, as referenced above). and The Messiah brings about the all  to Ethical Monotheism (Jeremiah 31:31-34; Zechariah 8:23; Isaiah 11:9; Zechariah 14:9,16).  
This did not happen with Jesus, so for the Jewish people, he did not meet that requirement either.  Based on the Tenakh, Jewish understanding and theology of the Messiah, it is logical they can not accept Jesus as the Anointed One for the world.

Before we go feeling sorry for the Jewish people and have a zeal to convert the and the whole world, we might want to understand the Tenakh, what is also referred to as the Old Testament through the original source of theology, Jewish Theology.  I personally, think the original source is the accurate source and Yeshua really came to reform Judaism, make it less legalistic.

 

 

Lemon Into Lemonade, How?

Inspiration Peace and Love

As an artist, the ideal is I have my own space.  The ideal will be I don’t share it with my 92 year old mum, and I don’t have to wait till she goes to sleep around midnight and stay up until 1 or 2 in the morning to do my creative stuff done and do it in the dining area on the kitchen table.  

That is what I am striving for, meditating on etc.., and having my own in house recording studio of sorts.  What do I do for now until I have my own space and can set things up exactly the way I wish, which I have faith I will have soon.  I have to find a compromise to that and so I record at night etc… and since I can’t belt out full range on my voice, what do I do? Well, turn lemon into lemonade.  I don’t moan and groan and whine about what id ikky, no, I don’t do that.  I do this:

I will also be offering through fiverr spiritual coaching, something I can do online.  I will simply require a decent tablet with skype or use of google video and I can provide spiritual coaching including some tough love.  Here is the thing, I can go anywhere where there is wifi and quiet and conduct the session, as I am near battery park, so I can go to Poet’s House, there are a number of options, even co-working spaces, that are inexpensive with a quiet corner someplace.   As long as I am determined to see the glass as half full and full of possibilities, then there is no reason I can’t turn lemons into lemonade.  Namaste, Shalom and Amen 

 

 

What Crisis Tell Us About US

The Journey That is Life.

 

Some will say that “suffering” or crisis is God’s way of bringing us closer to him, that he uses it as a way of bringing us closer to him or to bring us to him.  No, he can just as easily use the beauty of nature and other things for that.  What does crisis or any such thing do, bring about or show, even us? A few things.

It shows us where our trust and faith does stand, and if we have any faith, hope, a positive thought pattern, personality etc…  It will show if we are the type of person that truly does see the glass as half empty or half full.  Do we have faith in our spiritual path, traditions etc… when the rubber meets the road?  Do we have an understanding of the fact that nature has these complexities of positive and negative, dark and light, that all are subject to either at any time, and it’s not about whether we are in the light or the dark, but whether we navigate it with faith, confidence that matters?  That’s one thing it shows us.  It also shows us whether we are able to learn from the experience anything at all, come together with others, or whether we turn away, become angry bitter people because we think we are privileged due to our particular faith group or our faith level that nothing should touch us? It tells us and others whether we have a holier than thou, this should not happen to me or my family attitude.  Frankly, why shouldn’t stuff happen to any of us?  Granted some is not within our control such as weather, and illness, but even within that and blame etc… serves no purpose, but if we disregard medical care instruction or if we live in areas with propensity to flood etc.. and we do not take certain precautions, well none to wise, so for us to then get all bitter angry etc.. because this or that happened to us and someone else is okay, that really shows an ugly side to us, doesn’t it?  Crisis also shows us how mature we are?  Do we fall apart, become paralyzed, get impulsive do stuff without thinking at all and get into one mess after another? If we do, then crisis is showing us how immature we are and that maybe we need to do some self examination and some growing up?  Crisis can also show us who is with us and who isn’t, who we can count on emotionally, who is mature enough to be with us in crisis and who isn’t.  It can also show us how much we know and don’t know, were aware of and not aware of about what the heck was going on.  Maybe we need to be more aware of stuff going on related to our lives, society etc…?  It can bring out gifts in you, you never even realized you had, creative, leadership skills. Amazing what a crisis can bring out.

While crisis is not fun, it can teach us a lot, can be a real learning curve.  I know firbromyalgia has been that for me, so in a way I am grateful for it.

Namaste, Shalom and Amen

Want “Totally Safe”? Out of Luck

Letting Go Never Easy, But Necessary

A university recently sent a letter to incoming freshmen informing that that there will be on PC on their campus and thank goodness others are following their lead.  Even Alinsky worshiping Obama has said that campus PC and PC in general has gone amuk, though he himself has gone amuk by signing a bill allowing for the opt out of the Pledge of Allegiance, a staple of our nation’s core identity, and a crucial part of connecting youth etc.. to pride in the nation, culture and teaching core values.  Why is this move important by universities? In a nutshell, LIFE!!  

Life is like nature, life the weather.  Life has sun, rain, sleet, tornadoes etc.. Life has fuzzy bunnies, but also snakes with venom and you had better be able to be okay walking through life with every single one of them and not frigggin freak out at every encounter with them.  How the heck will you do that if education and parents, friends even, decide to coddle you with safe spaces and trigger codes, writing history to make anyone feel or look good?  Schools, colleges, universities, even where you work, are supposed to be, as are relationships, without violence or mean spirititedness, supposed to be a place where you get to grow as a person, as a professional in a constructive give and take, even with banter, debate, even passionate, varying views, passionately differing views, kick ass differing views, tough love differing views that make you think twice about your views, maybe even ten times over about them, really reflect, think, go out do some serious research, not take you teacher’s or professor’s or anyone’s particular word for it.  These situations are supposed to teach you about you, about life, others etc.., not make you into wusses, wimps, cry babies, whiners like BLM, Move On,  KKK, and even some fringe far out green movements,  people with no common sense, no real sense of direction, chaotic etc…You don’t have to like storms, lightening, snakes with venom etc.., but they exist, and you may well encounter them, so you had better toughen up and learn to face them with wit, common sense and whole lot of that stuff, be prepared to get sucker punched in life because you may very well get sucker punched and instead of whining moaning and groaning like a little baby, you had better be able to maturely deal with it, register it maturely and deal with it constructively, not be a big baby!  Education is supposed to be not about books and textual knowledge, but way beyond that, so much beyond that and academics have forgotten this, so have warped way out of touch with true feminism feminists who need a good smack upside the head ten times over.  

To those in education, to all those who realize that parenting, education etc… is about preparing those we truly care about for life and PC doesn’t do that, KUDOS and AMEN.  To everyone else, get a friggin thick skin, grow up, stop whining moaning and groaning.

Namaste, Shalom and Amen

Mirror, Mirror, What’s Yours?

slide_337809_3550010_free
The Journey That is Life.

Each of us has mirrors we look into in our lives that shape who we are and how we see ourselves, some of those mirrors build us up, some tear us down.  We can’t control all that we see reflected in our mirror of inner awareness and general of awareness.  The question then is this. How much control do we have in terms of our image of self, positive, without being narcissistic? Quite a bit when properly harnessed.  

There are circumstances that can batter your self esteem, even verbal whiplash from others than can really sucker punch you and make you doubt your worth.  When you are young, especially a child, even a young teen, you may not have anyone to teach you differently, to change the programming and imagery.  You may not even understand how the mirror you are looking into is distorted, not an accurate reflection of the wonderful gifted creation you are and have the potential to be.  That is not arrogance, to have confidence, to know your gifts, understand your gifts, to have those who believe in you beyond what you even see the potential in you to be, to embrace that with gratitude and recognition, in a healthy way, not narcissistic unhealthy way.  For the mirror to be a mirror of positive reflection for any of us, we have to be like the snake that sheds its’ skin.  In our case, we have to shed the skin of the negative view of self, of who we think we are, of who we might have been told we are in any negative way, to see our gifts etc… and if there is anything we can change to be a better person, then it has to be from within that we ourselves truly know has to be changed, not because others say it.  It has to be because we have seen an accurate mirror of who we are, have the potential to be and have confidence, faith to be that person, wonderful talents, gifts, even ego that we have to discipline and all.  We also have to not fear approaching our dreams, people we want to get to know etc…because of a less than positive view we might have of self predicated on past circumstances, and a mirror looked through that perhaps as not truly authentic to who we are.  

This is where contemplation, meditation and “prayer” are a great tool as are books like the Bible with very important archetypes.  For me Jewish theology and philosophy has been very important in understanding things, certain songs have also made me to reflect.  It has been a long road to get to where I can see into the mirror without any distortion put upon by anyone else.  That mirror, that authentic view gets sharper and sharper with time.  I pretty much have an authentic mirror and know I am responsible for my life being what it is or isn’t and I am a gift to this world and I don’t mean that in arrogance, but in gratitude, gratitude that I can share what I do and inspire etc… others.  A beautiful thing.  

Namaste, Shalom and Amen
