The Jewish Passover & Why it’s Meant for the Whole World

@ROliverLuce | 04-18-17

Here’s a question! What do you think “Passover” means? Yes, the first PASSOVER was about saving the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. It’s about how Adonai delivered the Israelites. It’s about the death of every living first born of every human family. However, it’s MORE than just that!

It’s about God slowly & progressively revealing His gracious love for ALL of the Humanity! It’s also about Adonai gradually moving the Hebrews into action in reaching out with the Word of God to the nations of the Earth about God’s eternal plan of hope and salvation from man’s dilemma of error and ruin. Even with each country’s creation and version of law they established, sin came anyway. Sin is the result of knowing a culture’s laws and breaking them at any rate! No matter what is set (laws) each nation experienced sin in greater and great measure. The increase in sin was also Israel’s problem as well with Adonai’s laws because of their willful disobedience to God’s law of graciousness and His love!

Thus Man’s only hope and salvation is through God’s Covenant with man/woman. God loves all and wants everyone to accept His gracious love when they choose rightly. God first loved us, and He shows His love FIRST that we might choose His graciousness that brings hope! This knowledge is given to the Jews that they might learn His ways and go out and cover the Earth and the seas with the knowledge of His law of graciousness and love that God was progressively giving to them!

In explaining how Passover and Covenant are related, I want to bring up scripture to point this out just what that connection is!

Without Passover, there is no Covenant.

The following scripture in a summary will show the progressive revelation of God’s Covenant and the Passover that will seal the deal on His Covenant of Salvation!

Genesis 3:14, 15 Regarding the Serpent; God will put enmity between the Serpent and the woman, and between the Serpent’s seed and her seed, and we know that women naturally do not produce seed as men do. [TOL, pg08] *[1]

Genesis 15:17, 18 God shows Abraham His Covenant through a dream with the promise of land for his and his seed’s inheritance. [TOL, pg22]

Genesis 17:1-19 God now makes His Covenant with Abraham and promises to confirm it with a son through Abraham’s wife! [We can take this as a type and shadow of the Messiah (God) confirming and sealing the deal on His own Covenant He has made with Abraham, and with Israel, and everyone whosoever will accept God’s graciousness into their lives! We are Abraham’s seed by decree from Adonai! [TOL, pg24]

Finally, with Adonai’s Covenant, there can be a hope and a future for all of  mankind; For everyone! Thus the resulting in a great outreach to the nations with this fantastic hope and a future for all the nations beginning with Israel.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans that I have in mind for you,” declares Adonai, “plans for shalom (peace) and not calamity—to give you a future and a hope.” [TOL, pg546]

Israel! God’s Witnesses to the Nations!

That all nations might be saved through obedience to His law of graciousness and love that is common to the various nations and cultures of the Earth! The Hebraic vision, that Adonai has given, will do this!

A simple example of Israel’s mission in teaching the Word of Life to the nations!

And here’s an example how Israel acts in wisdom by hearing the Word of God in every circumstance in life! To even teach the Word of the living graciousness of God!

1Chronicles 12:33(32) from the sons of Issachar—men who know how to interpret the signs of the times to determine what Israel should do! [TOL, pg982]

A simple example of why Israel was chosen by Adonai to reach out to the nations!

Deuteronomy 7:5-7(6-8) Adonai did not choose Israel because of their size or greatness in the Earth but because they were the least of all. As He showed His love towards Israel there was always a remnant that responded! [TOL, pg213]

Israel is to be Adonai’s Servant Nation to the nations!

Isaiah 43:8 – 13 Israel is my witnesses to the ends of the Earth!
“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” ~Isaiah 43:10 [TOL, pg486]

Therefore, whatever Passover means to Israel must also mean hope and salvation to the nations as well!

Genesis 12:3 Adonai shall bless those who bless you, but will curse those who curse you, Israel. For in you, Israel, all the families of the Earth SHALL BE BLESSED! [TOL, pg18]

Exodus 19:4 – 6 Jews becoming kings and priests for Adonai that they may teach the nations the way of peace through the only God, Adonai who is the god of wisdom and hope. [TOL, pg93]

Concluding!

Thus the Jewish Passover was and is meant for the Whole World, but this does not mean Jewish culture and certain ‘added protective’ Mosaic laws are meant for the other nations, except how to accept God’s LAW of graciousness within the context of their cultures.

Leave the Florida Sheriff Alone! Let Our Police Destroy the Drug Trade

@ROliverLuce | 04-10-17
.
@YahooNews Florida sheriff taunts drug dealers in a bizarre video gone viral is being compared to Muslim’s terrorist army soldiers.

GIVE US A BREAK! Comparing Sheriff units with Islam’s Muslim terrorist soldiers IS NOT even close; NOT AT ALL, lol.

This Sheriff’s picture CAN ONLY be COMPARED to the Mexican Naval Marines who routinely beat the tar out of drug muggers in the Republic of Mexico! Did I say ‘republic? Lol?

Let’s leave the Florida Sheriff alone. Let him destroy the drug trade AS WE GO ABOUT helping our drugged up kids back to Yeshua, so they won’t have to feed off these drug lords. Yeshua is about listening to wisdom, common sense, and kindness for relationships.

We want our Sheriffs to ACT like the Mexican Marines when destroying drugs as we restore ourselves from drugs! Let us also help pull our children out of drugs with the only kind of action that demonstrates love-action and wisdom that comes from Yeshua!

The freedom from drugs is a two-prong WAR! We can not afford to legalize nor can we not afford to ignore our hurting population. We all hurt! Yeshua is not a mush lover, but a tough lover with grace and compassion with common sense.

Again, liberals are telling us: Florida sheriff taunts drug dealers in a bizarre video gone viral is being compared to Islam’s Muslim terrorist army soldiers.

{Revised} Salvation Through The Torah & The Living Word For The Jews First & The Gentile

Salvation Through The Torah; The Living Word; For Those Who Are Still Seeking the Truth!

~@ROliverLuce | 03-23-17 [Revised]

Introduction

.
I am responding to certain Facebook questions & entries regarding “exposing missionaries,” how we (both Jews & Gentiles who love Adonai) are ALL missionaries, and how Jews are saved from their daily sins through requirements that are possible only from Adonai’s power of His love. And I will go into detail what I am talking about! Questions and responses are welcome.

.
{Revised} Salvation Through The Torah & The Living Word & For Those Who Are Still Seeking the Truth!

.
Why “expose missionaries?” I will first say many Christian groups do NOT know God as their complete wisdom (not the wisdom without Torah). Thus many do not depend on and go to Adonai for ‘wisdom’ that leads to reaching people wisely (with a pure heart) FOR the TRUTH without pushing nor lording it over people! Instead, many Christian or Messianic Jewish missionaries offend the Jews without listening to Adonai’s voice.

But it’s also true that the ‘heavenly Torah’ [the living Word, from the mouth of Adonai] may be convicting Jews as well. So let us be honest and be content that we know Adonai intimately through the Word and earnest prayer. We’re all sinners. There is a God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob that does judge and discern for which cause there will be a judgment in the end.

We can be confident of what it says in Romans chapter two and in the book of the “Tanakh” that if we are genuine seekers of the Truth, in word and deed, Adonai is the AUTHOR and we will discover that He is the Author! BUT, I say this only to PROVE that those who are blind (do not know) to what Adonai has made known (Torah) and to who is the author of the TRUTH, will NOT have this confidence in seeking the truth for their life.
The Jews have Adonai’s written Torah for their salvation. If they rely on Adonai’s love and grace for empowerment in keeping the Torah, they do well and will have the confidence! Because with Adonai’s forgiveness their consciences are cleared even as they are still waiting for THE MESSIAH to fulfill all things in the Torah. However, when a Jew realizes the Messiah, HE must compel himself to accept Adonai’s Word into his own heart as an act of circumcision of his heart! As for many Gentiles, many do give up and embrace their sins and fail to do what is right because of their lack of confidence!

For this cause we are missionaries to the NATIONS; all of us, the Jews first and the Gentiles who embrace the author of the TRUTH, the Messiah who covers our sins through the Covenant of Adonai as we can visualize from Genesis 15:17 {CJB version}. In this passage is where Adonai and His Spirit of Love pass through the two pieces of flesh that represent Adonai’s WORD of promise (the Truth)!

To reiterate about those who are seeking the truth without the realization of knowing the Torah and the Messiah, allow me to explain in closing. The Jews are saved from their sin condition through the Torah and what it means to follow the Torah for salvation. It would mean to know that the Torah can only be kept through continually accepting Adonai’s unconditional graciousness and forgiveness of sins daily. Thus repentance of sin is crucial to Adonai’s forgiveness when their conscience comes to a realization of [a] sin, but not false guilt.

That One Wound Every Man Carries

{ That One Wound, Those Several Wounds That Makes Up The Wound Every Man Carries }

A quotation from the Author’s book:

“The story of Adam’s fall is every man’s story. It is simple and straightforward, almost mythic in its brevity and depth. And so every man comes into the world set up for a [fall], a loss of heart. Then comes the story we are much more aware of—our own story. Where Adam’s story seems simple and straightforward, our own seems complex and detailed; many more characters are involved, and the plot is sometimes hard to follow. But the outcome is always the same: a wound in the soul. Every boy, in his journey to become a man, takes an arrow in the center of this heart, in the place of his strength. Because the wound is rarely discussed and even more rarely healed, every man carries a wound. And the wound is nearly always given by his father.”

My comments on John Eldredge’s intro!
~@ROliverLuce | 03-20-17

Oh sure, almost always The Wound, those wounds that make up ‘The Wound,’ usually does come from fathers almost always. We are not talking about everyday wounds that might come and go from mothers and others in a man’s life. We are talking about ‘that’ Wound we all carry in life as men, whether it’s a heavy burden or one that seems to never get any attention at all and usually men dismiss it out of fear!

The author’s point, in this paragraph, is made for further development in a chapter in his book for men who need to fight a ‘fight,’ a ‘war’ to win, and a ‘beauty’ (truth) to save!  This paragraph is an introductory paragraph to a chapter on men with a wound they carry in life. A wound that causes them from doing and living as God meant them to be; A mighty warrior with an adventure! To come alive in Yeshua!

Salvation Through the Living Word is from the Jews

@ROliverLuce | 01-28-17

Those of you today who worship a god, even various other gods. You do not know who you worship! You may worship Bahia, Allah, a Christian Religion, a hot car, women, men, sex, a house, the Hindu god. But for us a know who we worship. For we worship the God of creation, even the God of the Jews. God first gave the mission of teaching God’s Word of Salvation to the Jews. The seventy ancient nations had a need for the message, the Jews had. God had a plan to save humanity from sin that everyone would have hope and a future!

This salvation that we know came from the Jews who received it from Abram who was seeking the truth. God honored him and blessed him with a child that would spread throughout the Earth the Word of Salvation. And this would result in the Jews becoming responsible for the treasure of life to the nations. And the Gentiles would also benefit from accepting this Word of Life. The living Word eventually came in the form of “The Son of Man” from the lineage of Abraham!

And this was the MISSION the Jewish race was supposed to execute, and it’s still is their mission to the nations, even to this day of reckoning! But because of sin, God eventually spread the Jews to the four corners of the world. And the Gentiles began taking the mission to the World who would accept God’s gift of salvation!

And thus at the right time and season would the Jews become jealous.
As the Gentile believers reached out to the nations with the “whole “Living Word of God,” the Jews would look on and return to their God in full measure. That measure is through accepting their own God’s living Word from the “Book of the Covenant” that dwells in “The Son of Man.”
This “Son of Man” was and is the first of many brethren (that’s us) who would dwell forever in the Father’s Covenant of purpose and salvation. For there is salvation from the dominance of the flesh. This salvation comes through the empowerment of the “Living Word” from the mouth of God. This Living Word” is the “The First Son of Man!”

Scripture Reference:
John 4:22, 23 {CJB} pg.1334
22 You people don’t know what you are worshipping; we worship what we do know, because salvation comes from the Jews.
23 But the time is coming — indeed, it’s here now — when the true worshippers will worship the Father spiritually and truly, for these are the kind of people the Father wants worshipping him.

[John 4:22, 23 {TOL} pg1164]

Social Media May Be Dangerous To Your Freedoms! Or is it Something Else?

@ROliverLuce | 01-19-17

Social Media ‘could be’ dangerous to your freedoms if we continue to believe everything ‘we feel’ is not fake news. Or even that we retain our own echo chamber kicking out those ‘we feel’ have the lies and half-truths. The real issue I contend instead is ‘we the people’ slowly leaving the basis of all truth!

[What is ‘gaslighting?’ The ZDNet Article I’m writing about (herein) is attempting to describe a social reaction to a new term.]

With the advent of many American people leaving ‘the basis of truth’ found in the Bible, the Republic has gone astray leaving open the possibility of a vacuum that brings in chaos! This author is advocating that ‘Social Media’ encourages the absence of truth by its nature of allowing anything posted as news for example! However, I contend it’s all about leaving our first love, of the Bible, that held Americans together. Of course, Americans are not perfect from any perspective.

Of course, an absence of foundational truth does bring in destructive elements, like Alinsky-liberalism in filling the vacuum we see today in our Republic. For example a President and a party filled with Alinsky-communist liberals with their Muslim cohorts and their Islamic Sharia (laws) that stand against the values of the American Constitution.

People who believe in government control with a religious (like Islam) wing that drives and supports control can never understand the Biblical basis of the American social system. It’s also the basis from which we get the American Constitution.

The following quote[1] I’m providing from this ZDNet Article is simply common sense from which I have alliterated above. And from what I have written at the beginning of this article of mine, the real issue is walking away and losing our sense of the truth from the Hebrew-Christian Old Covenant and the Jewish-Christian New Covenant books. We are now venturing into uncharted territory. America based on lies and hearsay and candy coated news articles. The fake news and the lies will lead to the fall of the United States of America as we know it. America enslaved in the end.

Quoting the ZDNet Article [1]:

“We need to read beyond the first 200 words and all become critical thinkers, question every single thing we read on social media, read the story from as many sources as possible, and learn to recognize which sources to disregard and classify as the enemies of American journalistic values, which are dividing and lying to us.” {From the ZDNet Article.}

And as the author, of the ZDNet Article, says in particular:

“I will refuse to be ‘gaslighted’[2] through social media. And I hope my readers will as well.” {From the ZDNet Article.}
[He is saying to become free thinkers, thinking out of the box (Social Media). Yes, if you need too. But the REAL QUESTION is, what is your basis of thinking? The only way a free Republic can endure is by embracing the God who created this entire world. This God has his laws and common sense that promises a better society that encourages people who are self-restrained and civil with each other.]

[2] The definition of gaslighting described:

The description of the author’s definition of ‘gaslighting’ follows:
“We need to go old school [like]. As American citizens, we need to shed our Technology Augmented Autism [meaning] to become free thinkers and to choose our sources wisely.” {From the ZDNet Article.}
[Sue we can do this!  Again, the real problem is leaving the basis of truth, from the Bible, and believing anything that ‘sounds’ right.]
