Homosexuality is a Tragic Mistake and Erring in the Way of Life as GOD Made Us


   



 Homosexuality:  A Tragic Mistake / Error  / A Straying Away From the Divine Path



   The Bible is VERY clear and explicit: Homosexuality is an abomination, a great perversity of how GOD has designed human sexuality.  For it says,
“And with a male, you shall not lie, as one lies with a woman,
 it (is) TOEBA / ABOMINATION.” 
– Leviticus 19:22

"There shall be no harlot 
[one who has sexual relations outside the marriage relationship]
among Israel's daughters,
nor shall there be a homosexual among the sons of Israel."  
-- Deuteronomy 23:17

The Babylonian Talmud in the Book of Vows, under the Order of Women, defines TOEBA, the Hebrew word for "abomination":
        “What is TOEBA?  Toeh Ata Ba / You are erring in this Way.”   
-- Nedarim 51a

The Central Biblical Command in the Torah's 613 negative and Positive Commandments is "You shall walk in the Divine Path".   Clearly, if you are erring from the Divine Path, such as in committing abomination, you most certainly are not walking in the Divine Path. 

The Hebrew word TOEBA translates as Abomination, and is used 117 times in the Old Testament  / the Tanakh.  The following and pursuing after of Toeba in Scripture can also be argued to be a form of practicing detestable idolatry.  Toeba comes from a three letter root word of ta'a (Tav-Ayin-He) which means a wandering error by a mental, physical, or spiritual drunkenness that finds its motivation in wickedness.  In the Pilpel  (Tav-Ayin-Ayin) it is translated as deceive, and in the Hithpalpel it is translated as misuse.   Therefore, homosexuality is a mental - physical - spiritual error that is as a mental and spiritual illness or insanity that deceives those engaged in the practice and misuse of their bodies and souls. 

Even Homosexual (Pseudo-Christian) Publications Admit They Practice Something Condemned in Scripture


I think I can give address this issue in brief in part by citing one of the homosexuals who have stained the honor of Christ, and dares with other homosexuals to unrepentantly wear the cloth in the United Methodist Church. In the summer of 1998, the United Methodist Church in its California-Pacific Conference passed out as required reading to its attendees, “Reconciled Through God’s Love: The Reconciling Point of View”  Encino, CA: A Matter of Justice Press, June 1998. 


On page 24, Dr. Walter Wink, a prominent United Methodist homosexual advocate admitted:
 “Where the Bible mentions homosexual behavior at all, it clearly condemns it.  I freely grant that. 
  The issue is precisely whether that BIBLICAL JUDGMENT IS CORRECT.”  (Emphasis mine).  

Again, the clear and unmistakeable admission:

 “Where the Bible mentions homosexual behavior at all, it clearly condemns it.  I freely grant that."

There are no is, ands, or buts, about this issue.  Clearly, the acknowledgement is there; however, the homosexual depends also on having time to snow the person engaging the issue with a disengaging the issue, in which GOD who changes not, somehow makes exceptions for them because times have changed, when it is the proclivity to do or not do in the nature of a man, which is timeless, that forbids the alteration of the pattern GOD has set down for all time.  

 When we look at the LORD Jesus in the Gospels, He is spiritually the same as he was (Malachi 3:6) and He will always have the same personality in all of Time, past - present -future (Hebrews 13:8).  If we read Scripture after this fashion, in which those separate are like those few of the nations who besought His healing and intercession in the Gospels and the perceived aloofness or willingness to be set apart from them, we see His personality in the Old Testament.  When Jesus makes a whip and gets angry in the Temple at the thieves and robbers of His people making spoil of them for their attempting to practice Fidelity to GOD, Jesus also demonstrates the same personality traits we see of Him as the Savior - the LORD - whether we read this in Isaiah 43:3,15 or anywhere else throughout the Old Testament.  Therefore, on the very basis of even a beginning premise of acceptance, those who practice or advocate on behalf of homosexuality, already have grievously erred.  GOD has rejected it, and calls all sinners to realize the state of their self-destructive behavior, believe into Him fully, and come to repentance, leaving the destructive and damning behaviors while entering into eternal Salvation in and through Christ Jesus by the free (without money or price) and easy (as easy as but speaking a few words upon the lips or from the heart if speech is prevented) act of faith and confession with true repentance to turn and come to Christ in one's heart away from sin.  That is all it takes: true faith, truthful confession even if you are not 100% in the doing you are inclined that way, and the desire to repent with  your act of confession from the heart.  

By Faith, we come to the Cross in and through Time no matter where in Time we are; for it is at the Cross, through Faith and Confession from where we are in to now to where instantaneously at the Cross we send our sins, to that GOD-made one central moment in eternity -- and central to humanity for all time  -- Christ paid for our sins.   For it is there at the Cross that Jesus / Yeshua  takes all our sins and washes them under the blood of He Himself, who without sin, took on the form of a man to redeem us, and we are rendered spiritually clean.    


We are thereby, through genuine faith into Jesus, and what He did at the Cross, thereby reconciled to GOD, for GOD the Father hath made His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to be sin for us, He who knew no sin; in order that we might be made the righteousness of GOD in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).  And this being so, we are to be like Christ, and conform to His design; and His design and Command is to NOT be homosexual, nor to commit other sexual sins, such as conjugal relations outside the lone living marriage covenant spouse relationship. 



But getting to the egregious error and propaganda of Satan in  “Reconciled Through God’s Love: The Reconciling Point of View”  Encino, CA: A Matter of Justice Press, June 1998.
On page 17, Dr. Wink states: 
“The real issue here, then, is NOT simply HOMOSEXUALITY, BUT HOW SCRIPTURE INFORMS OUR LIVES TODAY.”  (emphasis mine)

And in spite of admitting that the Bible HAS a sexual ethic that condemns homosexuality 2 pages later on page 24 (as cited above); on page 22, Dr. Wink clearly then lies to himself and everyone else in stating the fiction of Progressivism that:
 “The crux of the matter…is simply THAT THE BIBLE HAS NO SEXUAL ETHIC.”    

No sexual ethic?  The forbidding of Adultery is but one of many sexual ethics of the Bible that I can raise to counter this canard of Dr. Wink's.  



The 10 Commandments does ipso facto include and condemn homosexuality in generality
       In Mark 10:19, it was Peter's testimony to Mark that not committing Adultery,  not having conjugal sex with another man’s wife, was the very first commandment Jesus addressed…referring back to what we MUST define as being a sexual ethic of and in the 10 commandments.

Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
Mark 10:19

Jesus also took this same sexual ethic to a whole higher level, when he also stated:

27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Matthew 5:27-28

Following upon this, I would argue that homosexuality is also effectually covered in the 10 Commandments   and forbidden.  


When two people marry in a Christian ceremony, as hundreds of millions of unbelievers also know, they are told of the passage in Genesis 2:18,21-24


18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.


In effect, by committing the conjugal act of adultery, the adulterer has unknowingly engaged in an act of spiritual homosexuality as well.  And it is for this reason that adultery is specifically to be a rejected act, and confirmed as rejected because it also involves coveting and stealing that which belongs to another, violating two more of the 10 Commandments.  

 "Thou shalt NOT commit adultery." (Exodus 20:14  therefore encompasses both the approved conjugal relationship between male and female and warns that it must not be misapplied to those to whom that sexual ethic is forbidden, male or female, in whatever context outside that which is approved.  In other words, that conjugal relationship outside that of a man and a woman joined together in marriage.  And because Adam had only one rib removed, and one wife, that example from our first Father and Mother of all humanity is the example and pattern that we should follow...having one spouse (not multiple spouses and marriages of convenience, which in itself, also constitutes adultery if the other marriage partners are still living). 

Further, in the 10th Commandment of Exodus 20:17, we see repetitious and overlapping commands that by intent and design include homosexuality as well as adultery and bestiality in its primary intent of "covetousness".  Thus, by interpretation we can judge that the sins of adultery  is like a slippery slope, which slips into the degradation and lower / baser level of homosexuality.  which in itself then slips into the degradation of bestiality.  In effect the combination of Adultery and Covetousness both begin and end with misplaced desires against GOD's design of humanity and nature, and leads to certain damnation and rejection by GOD. 

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house - - addresses envy and covetousness, and denies the concept of forceful wealth redistribution as Marxist Communism demands we do to our neighbors before they of Marxist Communism laughingly or spitefully then do to us.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife -- addresses adultery and masculine spiritual homosexuality a second time, as well as female homosexuality, envy and covetousness.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's manservant -- addresses homosexuality as well as envy and covetousness, and also any act of adultery on the part of the wife with the slave (remember Potiphar's wife desiring sex with Joseph here). 

 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbor's  -- addresses covetousness primarily, but would include those who would lead such an animal into a mire and get it stuck so they would engage in bestiality. 

Therefore, more is covered in the 10 Commandments than is generally taught, because most people are too complacent when it comes to being Biblically literate.  And as I have demonstrated...yes, homosexuality is covered in generality as forbidden when we adhere to the 10 Commandments given Moses upon Mount Horeb / Sinai by the LORD.


 "The whole purpose of the [10] Commandments is to purify and unite humanity"  Tanhuma Shmini 65b

And that includes a call to be purified in a restoration relationship with GOD and to cease from adultery, fornication, greed, thievery, criminal murder, and not bearing false witness as well as ceasing from the error of homosexuality, for those to whom this last sin applies.  

In brief, from a Biblical point of view, any political or social acceptance of homosexual practice is wrong; and we need to teach our next generations the correct political correctness in GOD's eyes, rather than the many and diverse  base errors of man's wayward version of political correctness or Liberalism which will most assuredly damn their eternal souls to hell once they depart the land of the living.   


 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 
Matthew 9:13


And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Matthew 11:6


11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
Matthew 18:11-13


Amen.

Stratfor on Terrorism's Not-So-Exceptional Individual and an Editorial Addendum

Terrorism and the Not-So-Exceptional Individual

May 24, 2012 | 0900 GMT

By Scott Stewart

In last week's Security Weekly, we used a thwarted underwear bomb plot, as well as the U.S. government's easing the rules of engagement for unmanned aerial vehicle strikes in Yemen, as an opportunity to examine the role of exceptional individuals in militant groups that conduct terrorist attacks. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's (AQAP's) innovative bombmaker, Ibrahim al-Asiri, is one such individual.

Reported by AP on May 7, the news of the thwarted underwear plot overshadowed another event in Yemen that occurred May 6: a U.S. airstrike in Shabwa province that killed Fahd al-Quso, a Yemeni militant wanted for his involvement in the attack against the USS Cole in October 2000. Al-Quso appeared in a video released by AQAP's al-Malahim Media in May 2010, during which he threatened attacks against the continental United States, its embassy in Yemen and warships in the waters surrounding Yemen.

The media and the U.S. government frequently mention al-Quso's involvement in the USS Cole bombing, but they rarely discuss his precise duty the day of the attack. Al-Quso had been tasked to record the attack from ashore so that the video could be used later in al Qaeda propaganda. Unfortunately for the group, al-Quso was derelict in his duty; he slept through his alarm, and the attack went unrecorded.

Oversleeping a terrorist attack was not al-Quso's only operational gaffe. According to the 9/11 Commission Report, al-Quso had been dispatched in January 2001 to transport money to al Qaeda facilitator Walid bin Attash in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The money reportedly funded the travel and initial living expenses of 9/11 operatives Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khaled al-Midhar. However, al-Quso failed to get a Malaysian visa. He was stuck in Bangkok, and bin Attash, al-Hazmi and al-Midhar had to meet him in Bangkok to retrieve the funds.   
If al-Asiri gives cause to discuss the role of the exceptional individual in terrorism operations, al-Quso provides us the opportunity to discuss the not-so exceptional individual -- and how these maladroit actors nonetheless pose a threat.

Tradecraft Errors

The history of al Qaeda's war against the United States is replete with examples of jihadist operations that were foiled due to tradecraft failures. In September 1992, Ahmed Ajaj attempted to enter the United States with a poorly altered Swedish passport while carrying a suitcase full of bombmaking instructions and other training manuals and videos. Both lapses in judgment are characteristic of a novice. An alert customs inspector stopped Ajaj, who later was detained and charged with passport fraud.

Ajaj was traveling from Osama bin Laden's Khaldan training camp in Afghanistan with Abdel Basit, also known as Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center attack. An immigration inspector likewise stopped Basit, but he requested political asylum. Because he was not carrying a suitcase full of bombmaking manuals or using an altered passport, Basit later was released pending a hearing on his asylum claim. (Had he remained in custody, the 1993 World Trade Center bombing would not have been conducted.)
In another instance of tradecraft error, the would-be millennium bomber, Ahmed Ressam, fell victim to "burn syndrome" while attempting to enter the United States from Canada in December 1999. Ressam panicked when approached by a U.S. customs inspector, who was performing a routine check of the ferry on which he was traveling. The inspector was unaware that Ressam was an Islamist militant or that he was in operational mode. In fact, when Ressam lost his composure, she assumed he was smuggling drugs rather than explosives.

The 9/11 Commission Report also detailed a number of errors committed by the supposed al Qaeda elite prior to hijacking the four aircraft on 9/11. Mohammed Atta was cited for driving with an invalid license and failed to appear at the subsequent court hearing, causing a bench warrant to be issued for his arrest. Moreover, known al Qaeda associates al-Hamzi and al-Midhar entered the United States under their own names. (A flight instructor even characterized al-Hamzi and al-Midhar as "Dumb and Dumber," saying they were "clueless" as would-be pilots.) Any of these errors could have brought down the entire 9/11 operation.

More recently, we have seen cases where individuals such as Faisal Shahzad and Najibullah Zazi have shown the intent, but not the ability, to conduct attacks. While Shahzad was able to assemble a large vehicle-borne improvised explosive device without detection, the design of the device's firing chain was seriously flawed -- clearly the work of a novice. U.S. government surveillance of Zazi's activities determined that he was an inexperienced bombmaker and that he could not create the proper chemical mixture to manufacture effective triacetone triperoxide (TATP). This is common problem for novice bombmakers. We have seen several planned attacks, such as the London bomb attempt on July 21, 2005, fizzle out due to bad batches of TATP.
In another example, U.S. Army Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo was arrested and charged with planning an attack on Ft. Hood in July 2011. Abdo was brought to the attention of the authorities after purchasing smokeless powder to be used in an improvised explosive device. His furtive demeanor caused a store clerk to report him to the police.

As Stratfor has noted, there has been a shift in the jihadist threat. Once stemming from the al Qaeda core, the jihadist threat now emanates primarily from grassroots jihadists. While grassroots jihadists pose a more diffuse threat because they are more difficult than hierarchical groups for national intelligence and law enforcement agencies to detect, they also pose a less severe threat because they generally lack the terrorist tradecraft required to conduct a large-scale attack. Since they lack such tradecraft, they tend to seek assistance to conduct their plots. This assistance usually involves the acquisition of explosives or firearms, as seen in the February 2010 case involving Amine el Khalifi. In this case, an FBI informant posing as a jihadist leader provided the suspect with an inert suicide vest and a submachine gun before the suspect's arrest for plotting to attack the U.S. Capitol building.
The dynamic of would-be attackers reaching out for help has been seen repeatedly in the United States. In June 2011, two jihadists were arrested in Seattle and charged with plotting to attack a U.S. Military Entrance Processing Station in an industrial area south of downtown Seattle. The men attempted to obtain M16 rifles and hand grenades from an FBI informant. Notably, this trend also has been seen outside the jihadist world. On April 30, five self-identified anarchists were arrested in connection with a plot to destroy a bridge outside Cleveland, Ohio. They had purchased remotely detonated improvised explosive devices from an FBI informant.

The Cleveland group had previously discussed constructing improvised explosive mixtures using recipes they had found on the Internet. But the possibility of buying authentic C4 explosives was attractive to them because, according to the FBI criminal complaint filed in the case, the group believed the real explosives would be more powerful and destructive than homemade explosives.
Would-be attackers, such as Shahzad and the anarchists of the Cleveland group, typically do not have a realistic assessment of their capabilities and therefore tend to attempt attacks that are beyond their capabilities. In attempting a spectacular attack, they frequently achieve little or nothing. As we have previously noted, it is a rare individual who possesses the requisite combination of will, discipline, adaptability and technical skill to make the leap from theory to practice and become a successful militant in a lone-wolf or small-cell environment.


The Danger of 'Kramer Jihadists'

Through retrospective trial testimony or FBI arrest affidavits, the exploits of Abdo, el Khalifi or the Cleveland anarchists can appear almost comical. In fact, such cases often leave people wondering if ridiculous would-be attackers could be involved in terrorist activity to begin with. However, militant groups -- indeed, most organizations -- are composed of exceptional individuals and not-so-exceptional individuals. Just as the business world needs chief executive officers, engineers and assembly line workers, the militant world needs operational planners, bombmakers, foot soldiers and suicide bombers. Placed in the proper roles, these individuals can combine their efforts to produce effective results.

It is easy to dismiss novice militants as inept, but we should keep in mind that if some of these individuals found an actual terrorist facilitator rather than a federal informant, they probably would have killed many people in an attack. Richard Reid, often referred to as the "Kramer of al Qaeda" after the bumbling character from the television series Seinfeld, came very close to taking down a jumbo jet full of people over the Atlantic Ocean because he had been equipped and dispatched by those more capable than himself. Working under the leadership of exceptional individuals, even al-Hamzi and al-Midhar ("Dumb and Dumber") helped hijack American Airlines Flight 77, which was crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11.

The 1993 World Trade Center bombing provides a valuable lesson on dealing with Kramer jihadists. Before the attack, a government informant infiltrated the core group of perpetrators. After the informant proved to be too difficult to handle, coverage of the group was dropped because its members were considered inept. In truth, many of them were; one suspect, Mohammed Salameh, tried to retrieve the deposit he put down on the rental truck used to transport the bomb. But this only highlights the importance of the exceptional individual -- in this case, Abdel Basit. He was sent to New York to lead what proved to be a successfully executed bomb plot.
History demonstrates clearly that even groups of bumbling aspiring attackers can be organized successfully if they are empowered by someone who provides them with means and oversight. Accordingly, authorities cannot afford to ignore bumblers, no matter how inept they may appear.

My Comments -- by Brianroy

In early May 2012 the American and Foreign Public abroad learned of another underwear bomber plot.


Afterwards, a CIA asset deep within Al Qaeda in Yemen was exposed and shown on the internet as a consequence of leaks by the Obama Administration as it was high-fiving itself,  and he was summarily executed by Al Qaeda.  This sent alarm bells of distrust to all our Intelligence sharing Allies around the world, asking, "What the hell is wrong with you? Can't you ever keep a secret anymore?"  When it regards destroying US credibility, the leak by the Obama Administration is exactly the point, and what Obama and Leon Panetta WANTED to do. 
 
The Intelligence Community (comprised of those past and present still living) is furious at the betrayal of the Obama Administration over the intentional leak and fatal consequences over the new underwear bomber.   Former CIA Director Porter Goss appeared on the Laura Ingraham Show on Tuesday May 22, 2012 and expresses many of my sentiments on this issue.  I hope as you listen, it will also likewise resonate the same sentiments that you will also have within you.



The Community respectfully needs to come out and eleemosynarily join us in exposing Obama for the fraud and the danger to the United States of America that he is, and I now make the appeal that they of the Community join in the cause of peacefully defending the United States Constitution, and help surface information on Obama that has been suppressed and hidden, releasing it into the public sphere of the Internet as soon as practical and possible, please.  Thanks in advance.

The Third Division in Korea, Audie Murphy joins in the narration





From Vietnam to present, our war veterans have gone and fought in their engagements, and many have questioned our motives in going. Some rightly point to the CIA, but they are not the problem.  Part of the problem is that we are not engaging in such a way as to going in quickly to win, it is in the staying after we have decimated the enemy or accomplished the mission.  In Desert Storm we stopped short of our objective to invade Iraq, and rid Saddam Hussein then.  In the meanwhile a new fundamentalist Islamic threat arose, attacking America, and the White House and Congress refused to accept the realities of the new threat.  As if by ignoring it, it would go away.  If you have a problem with America's going to war, look no further than Congress and the White House.  There is no excuse to stay any longer than we have to in order to win if we are not going to require War Reparations, such as upon Iraq's Oil Industry, as is our moral right and duty to do for liberation.  Our first global war of liberation was in 1898 with the Spanish-American War, when we fought Spain and liberated Cuba and the Philippines.   And there is no excuse to start illegal wars, such as Obama did in Libya, and to entirely escape any Constitutional Accountability and Impeachment because of the color of his skin and a D label to his political Party affiliation.  

The Central Intelligence Agency is an Agency.  It, as an Agency,  exists as a means of accomplishing the requests of the White House and others in the Federal Government who come to them and say, "Do this."



Once we understand how that works, we understand the military-industrial complex and our involvements around the world on the espionage, military surgical action, and war level...and we know who to blame.  The White House and Congress, even if they are motivated and given ideas to put forward to the Agency to do by lobbyists and special interest cronies and the like. 

The sacrifice for freedom and the desire to do the right thing does not ill reflect on our servicemen and servicewomen, even though the drug addict Obama oft despises them except as props to help him in the polls...but the fact that we have allowed an alleged illegal alien into the US Presidency to usurp our freedoms, and our living servicemen (particularly the Joint Chiefs of Staff and their immediate subordinates) have no inclination or moral fortitude to do anything about it as he seeks to end the Republic of the United States, is a yellow and manure stain on the memory of those who have fought and died to keep us free.

Tyranny is coming bit by bit as our elected officials give away our national sovereignty bit by bit to the unelected (often foreign) officials and entities, whether by Treaties, corrupt and nefarious legislation,  or other means.




We need allies, true allies of freedom and liberty, allies who also take every word of the United States Constitution seriously who will also stand with and join us in doing what they can in their own spheres of influence to help by use of reason and persuasive intelligent positions on the issues, expose Obama for the fraud he is, and by doing so, honor the memories of the fallen veterans of war and those who live(d) into the peace beyond.  We are called not only to preserve the present, but to ensure the future is also free for those generations who take it up after we are gone.  It is a national effort, not just something left to a squad here and a company there.  Let this be a true Memorial, and let us never forget.  And may we also give thanks to GOD in and through Christ Jesus, who can instruct us, guide us, teach us, and mend our every flaw. Amen.

The booklet, which is thirty-six pages long, is printed in blue ink (and, on the cover, silver/grey ink), using offset lithography. It purports to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of Acton & Dystel, which was founded in 1976.







And according to the Wayback Machine, the archives of the Internet, would the Mainstream Media really be serious that we should believe that  Acton &  Dystel remained uncorrected by Obama for 16 years in promoting their client as born in Kenya, including over a month after he announced running for the United States Presidency?

 These Agencies have no time nor inclination to manufacture biographies for first time authors, and for the Huffington Post and others to suggest the Literary Agency manufactured Obama's biography is absolutely ludicrous.  The biography begins and ends with Barack Obama himself writing and mailing his own bio that he was born in Kenya, and for 16 years he KNEW it was out there, and himself left it as uncorrected because that is what he either knew for a fact by 1991 after his 1986 trip to Kenya, seeing his Birth Certificate in his grandmother's possession, or by believing what she and other family members alive and cognizant in 1961 told him.  That would include his step-mother Kezia, Obama Sr.'s first wife, behind whom he stands in the 1986 family photo posted at Obamafiles 

 

 So Barack would have heard it from two living witnesses he was born in Kenya, and have had no reason to believe otherwise, once he got off the phone or once again met his mother Ann and his grandmother "Toots"  in person in 1986, it seems to me.  Therefore, I believe that Barack only found out for certain he was Kenyan born when he was 25 or so, and perhaps not before then.

In 2009, the nation of Kenya dedicated what amounts to a national shrine in Kogelo, Kenya  to what they call "the birthplace of President Barack Obama"  (NOT that of his late father's, but that of President Barack Obama)?

The ministry of national heritage this
month hosted a cultural festival in Kogelo
and commissioned a cultural museum on a
plot donated by a member of the Kogelo
community
. The cultural festival  was
attended by
minister for national heritage,
William ole Ntimama and US ambassador,
Michael Ranneberger.

This was to honour the birthplace of
President Barack Obama
and re-dedicate the
tomb of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., the
president's late father. But the project
had been delayed because of ownership
wrangles surrounding the plot.

# Since the last bulletin (#9037/2009/04)
on this subject, the government has
provided additional assistance to Mama
Sarah Obama including additional security
and a small- government stipend of Ksh
50,000 per month. Ministry of public works
has commissioned a L2km neh/ tarmac road
that will link Kogelo village with Ndori
market in Bondo district and Ng'iya market
in Siaya district.

The road was commissioned by Prime
Minister, Raila Odinga and minister for
roads, Franklin Bett in the presence of
other government officials and
representatives of the Obama family.

# Mama Sarah is on record that she speaks
occasionally with President Obama but we
have not verified the frequency of these
calls or whether they are secure enough to
avoid any diversions or tapping over the
internet.

The narrative that Obama was Kenyan born PRECEDES Obama's announcing he was running for the US Presidency, and PRECEDES any swearing in to the United States Senate by Barack Obama.

Hat Tip to ExposeObama.com

WND released a short summary of the above information





Radio Talk-show host Michael Savage gives his take on Mitt Romney's caving in to Obama on the Natural Born Citizen issue as the politician and coward that he is.  



And while we are focusing on Obama's ineligibility, questions have been raised if or not Mitt Romney was born to a United States Citizen at the time of birth, because his father was born in Mexico, and questions of when or if George Romney even "naturalized" have been raised.  


But it seems to me, that while George Romney was illegally placed on the Presidential VP ticket in the 1960s, as a dual U.S. Citizen, he was able to confer United States Natural Born Citizenship as long as he returned to the United States prior to coming of age 21 (as cited by example in Perkins v. Elg et al.), and at least kept his United states Citizenship from lapsing.  However, failing to do so, means that the Republicans in the 1960s failed in vetting Presidential Candidates once again, even after the Charles Evans Hughes fiasco of 1916 and the birthers (i.e., United States Patriots acting as United States Constitutionalists) of that time, 96 years ago.  


However another point missed of interest as it regards the Media, is why was not the point put to the forefront that Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman shared the same polygamous great-great grandfather in Parley P. Pratt, one of the pioneer founders of Mormonism? 

Retire navy Commander Kerchner believes that it is all part of a "perfect storm" scenario, which could send us into a crisis ...


...but even Commander Kerchner (no disrespect in any way intended)  fails to express a realization (at least in the above article) that it is to be a crisis by non-enforcement of the US Constitution  that would require a rewrite of the existing Constitution to a New Replacement Socialist Constitution that these corrupt leaders of ours in Washington, D.C. would be willing to enforce, especially when leaders like Nancy Pelosi believe that those of us who express an opposing view ... beginning with those U.S. Citizens who work for U.S. based corporations   http://cnsnews.com/news/article/pelosi-amend-first-amendment  and then on down some secret  (though quite obvious Conservatives and Christians) enemies list --  should be stripped of the Bill of Rights as applying to us, regardless of we who are genuine United States Natural Born Citizens, born on US Soil to to US Citizen parents and have never resided or left this nation to become citizens of another.

James Madison and Thomas Jefferson : Brookhiser on Madison, Barton on Jefferson


Hillsdale Lecture on James Madison, a Primary Author in our United States Constitution





Two quotes from James Madison and my general comments:  

1)  Letter to Thomas Jefferson from Philadelphia, June 6th, 1787:     
            "Rhode Island has not yet acceded to the measure. As their Legislature meet very frequently, and can at any time be got together in a week...."

It took Rhode Island a whole week to gather their State Legislature and THAT was considered as "fast" in June of 1787?  Considering that Rhode Island is only about  48 miles long and 37 miles wide with a square mileage of only about 1545 square miles, the modern response to this might be "Yikes! Are you sure they used their horses to git where they were a-going?"   In some states, that would mean it might take upwards of an entire month just to convene ALL the State Legislatures in the larger states such a Virginia and New York if a necessary assembly or crisis arose. Something to keep in mind as we remember they lived in a non-motorized maritime and agrarian era.  That is, they traveled with slow ships driven by the wind (often averaging 4 knots per hour unless the wind really picked up) and traveled about as slowly in much of the inland areas, even on horseback, often over rough overland dirt trails in much of their transportation, only being able to pick up speed in rare clearings and on the more prepared interstate commerce dirt trails that still often had serious / dangerous ruts (or even breaks) in the road to watch out for after the last (sometimes few) rainfall(s) that needed tending; not to mention collapsed - missing - or in serious need of repair wooden bridges that often obstructed (rather than aided) the trail traveler along his way in 1787.

 


2)     In the Debates of the Federal Convention on Thursday, June 7th, 1787, while "in Committee of the Whole",  James Madison remarked (as according to his own notes of the same):
            " Nothing can be more contradictory than to say that the Natl. Legislature with[ou]t  a proper check, will follow the example of the State Legislatures, & in the same breath, that the State Legislatures are the only proper check.

In our day, there is a serious need to have the State Legislatures step up and challenge Congress on their encroachments upon States Rights and Individual liberties.   The State Legislatures were expected to be a proper check to a runaway and out of control United States Congress, if it ever deteriorated to depravity and excess.  Unfortunately, the same attitudes of corruption often prevail in the State Legislatures as well, and in both the Federal and State Level, it is almost always the "Progressive" version of those who label themselves as Democrats who are the problem.  The "Progressives" of both major parties are the problem in America's Legislatures, and they need to be weeded out and kicked out of office.  If it were possible to ban them as Germany bans the Nazis, it would NOT be a bad thing, because that is exactly what they want to do to us.  The corruption of the Christian believing, some even Protestant Christianity evangelizing and proselytizing State Legislatures of 1787 ever turning so corrupt and unbelieving / apostate as they are today, must have been unfathomable to James Madison and the Founding Fathers in 1787 as they went into Federal Convention.  And now, via the Progressives rewriting history and lying to themselves and others to make American History as it never was, some saying the Founding Fathers were Karl Marxists before Marx was born (how much dope they they smoke or LSD did they trip to come up with
that?), cannot fathom that historically the Founding Fathers were the evangelical Protestant Christians that so many of them were.

John 14:6 - The Theology contained within elaborated upon


John 14:6, the Theology of the Cross


Greek:    εγο   ειμι  η  οδος  και   η   αληθεια   και  η   ζηω
Greek Transliteration: ego eimi ay hodos kai ay h'aleitheia  kai  ay zoe
English:  I AM  -- the Way and the Truth and the (living) eternal Life:

Greek:           ουδεις  ερχεται   προς  τον  πατερα  ει  μη  δι   εμου.
Greek Translit.:   oudeis erchetai pros ton  patera  ei may dee emou.
English:  no one comes up to/ alongside the Father except through Me.

“ Jesus saith unto him,

I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me”
John 14:6  (King James Version).

The Way

Jesus said, I Am the Way:
In the Greek above, we see the word used for “way” is “hodos”“Hodos” is that “path”, “way”, or “road” which leads one to an acknowledgeable end-destination.  For example, at Beth Shean, if you were to follow the caravan route north, you would traverse into the “hodos” of the Sea of Galilee.  The “hodos” of the Sea will then lead you directly to Capernaum.  If, from Beth Shean, you were to take the “hodos” through the western Valley, it would eventually round over to the north and into Galilee.  That “hodos” would be more direct in relation to attaining Nazareth, Sepphoris, and Cana. 
If you left Beth Shean and took the “hodos” south,  you would attain Jericho, and then from Jericho, take the winding “hodos” up to Jerusalem.  Like modern travel, “hodos” may simply be a collection of paths that get you from here to there; yet, it is reflected back upon as a whole, or as a singular path, a singular journey.
When we find Christ, we find that the goal and attainment of the person and the destination are one and the same.  Yet, we all start off from different vantage points: physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.  The “hodos” upon which we travel is nothing we can ever really call tangible in this life; but rather, it is an intangible grappling with the finer points of what is and what is not the true and greater reality before us.  We are called to stay true to a course that is beyond sight and other sensory perceptions.  So when we read that Christ calls Himself the “hodos”, “The Way”, we can know and appreciate that regardless of this life’s outcome, our destination and our hope is in Him: in YHVeH Messiah -- Jesus Christ.


And Jesus said:  I Am the BA
If we were to translate this verse into Hebrew, the most appropriate translation of “hodos” would be בא,  “BA”.  Now, let us for the moment, accept without question that Christ is the בא,  “ba”.  If we reverse these two letters of Beth and Alef, we see then what He is the “Way” to  אב ,   “AB”, which means “the Father”.  By proclaiming Himself as “the Way”, Christ claims exclusively, only through Him -- through His own person -- lays “the Way” בא, to  “the Father” אב  . 
Jesus is the ikone , the exact image - reflection -representation (Colossians 1:15, 2 Corinthians 4:4) of GOD the Father.  We can express Jesus as the BA of the AB as not just the Way of the Father, but the ONLY  direct face to face begotten person in the image or reflection of G-D the Father, who pros, up alongside and with, pros ton Theon, up alongside and with G-D the Father in John 1:1, who also stands or sits next to the Father in His Bosom or most closest presence (John 1:18), even as Moses stood next to the Angel of YHVeH and spake as one would speak "face to face" in the Torah.

 The Gospels state of Christ:
Mat. 11:27 - All things, including principalities, are delivered unto Him
Mat. 28:18 - All power on Earth is given to Christ
Luke 10:22, John 3:35 - The Father entrusts all power and dominion as part of the "all things" into Christ.
John 17:2 - Jesus has power over all flesh, hence authority as only G-D has

In Colossians 1:15-17, we read of Jesus:

"Who is (the) image [eikon] of G-D the Invisible before the birth [prototokos] of all Creation, because in Him were created all things:
-- the things in the heavens; --
and those upon the Earth: those visible and invisible -- whether thrones, whether lord-ships, whether rulers, whether authorities, -- all things through Him, and for Him, have been created; and He is prior to all things, and all things in Him stand-together-with/stand-because-of
[sunesteke] (Him)."

This last word, sunesteke, is the perfect indicative active of sunistemi; and tells us that Jesus "completes" or "fulfills the action" of causing the Earth and the Universe and the very concept of "law" to stand together, whether on Earth or in the Heavens.

In other words, Jesus indeed acts as the exact mirror-reflection (eikon) of G-D the Invisible (2 Corinthians 4:4, John 1:18), as G-D. His existence precedes (proto) any birth or manifestation (tokos, from 'tikto' - to bear and/or bring forth) of Creation...whether in Heaven, or upon the Earth.
         In a closer examination of the Greek, often the word “hodos” projects the word-picture ‘of that path or way which leads to the DOOR of a house or Temple.’  This Greek word differs from the Hebrew counterpart of “Ba” in this respect:  whereas “hodos” is inclusive of an entire journey from point A to its end-destination of point B, the Hebraic “Ba” is simply inclusive only of ‘the immediate path or road that leads to the end-destination’ of the door at point B.  This is because, technically, “Ba” means a path that traverse through a Door-way.  Because of this, most translators tend to utilize “DeReK”,  דרך, the “wide course” or  “wide way”, instead of the path that leads you to a specific end destination.  This translation easily contradicts both Jesus teachings and clear intent.  Derek is like arriving at a great metropolis, yet still having no clue how to locate a person living there, and having no other address for the person whom you are seeking.    

As for “DeReK”,     דרך     I reject this translation as used by some Messianics in translating  John 14:6, because it neither fits the teachings or intent of Christ. [1]  

 Further, in Gematria, “ba” is the ideal to what Christ teaches; “natib” would be secondary.  Even “Mecillah” מסלה,  “the raised or exalted highway” of Isaiah and John the Baptist’s usage, would still be far more preferable in translating “hodos” in John 14:6, rather than using “DeReK’: “the wide course or way”.
   
Jesus said,       “Enter you in the Strait Gate:
                         for wide is the gate, and broad is the Way that leads to destruction,
                         and many are they who go in thereat:
                         because the gate which leads to LIFE is Strait, and the Way is narrow,
                         and there are few who find it.”
                                                                        (Matthew 7:13-14)   KJV

 The word that Jesus uses for “broad”, in Matthew 7:13, is “euruchoros” (ευρυχωρος) in the Greek.  This word conveys the picture of a wide and vastly open countryside.  Imagine yourself on a flat plain of a wilderness, and that your 360 degree field of vision is literally nothing but hundreds of square miles of barren wasteland.  Furthermore, the only reason you don’t see more barren land is because it slopes out of view upon the horizons on all sides of you.  This is “the Broad Way” of euruchoros, where you can choose any which and every way, what ever is right in your own eyes, and still be assured of your own demise and destruction.  This is similar to the Hebraic  דרך   “Derek”.   For example, in Genesis 16:7’s “the Way to Shur”, and in Isaiah 9:1’s  “the Way of the Sea”, both use “Derek” after the sense of a broadly sweeping plain or valley.  In Exodus 13:17, even the entire land mass and width of Sinai between the Mediterranean and Red Sea is implied in its use of “Derek”. Christ, on the other hand, wishes to identify Himself and the way to Life as narrow, pressed in, and constricted. 



The Course of the Mecillah

            “The Voice of one crying in the Wilderness of the Desert:
             Prepare you the Course -- the Route -- of YHVeH!  [“Course” - Derek]
             Make His exalted and embanked Road straight!”  [“Road” - Mecillah]
                                                (Isaiah 40:3,  translation mine)

The Hebraic “Mecillah”  מסלה   is likened to a levee wall along a riverbank.  In Numbers 20:19, “mecillah” is used to the effect of being a high plain or plateau passage between mountains in the border regions of Edom (cf. Numbers 20:23).  In 2 Chronicles 9:11,  “mecillah”    מסלה is translated in English as “steps” in some translations; however, the application should render it as “a high or exalted way”.  The word picture is of the pier of algum trees in the outer Temple Court, the which stretched from near the Eastern Gate to near the Beautiful Gate in Solomon’s Temple.  This pier, probably being only several feet high, was supposed to be traversed only by the coming Messiah.  We are called to the word picture of such an exalted path in Proverbs 16:17, and to keep and maintain a higher code of conduct.  Yet, even as the thoughts and  ways of GOD are higher than man’s ways (Isaiah55:8-9), so also is His “mecillah” higher than our “mecillah”.  In the last Days, we shall see that the Path of YHVeH lies across the spectrum of the heavens, and that the war in Heaven will be fought along this road above (Judges 5:20, Revelation 12:7a).  

In Matthew 3:3, John the Baptist declared, in regards to the “Mecillah” of YHVeH,  “Straight make the paths of Him.”  (Literal translation from Greek)

John preached this at Bethabara on the Jordan River.  Bethabara was the location through which, in 1511 B.C., Joshua and the children of Israel entered into the Promised Land.  It was from here that, through the command of Joshua (i.e. ‘Jesus’), that the waters rolled up and receded north (and back upon itself) past the city of Adam.  The Israelis then took memorial stones from the dry riverbed from which the water receded, and placed them on the west bank of the Jordan, to make this location as a place of remembrance (Joshua 3:15 - 4:9).  These were stones that were as though dead and buried: forgotten.  They were lifted up out of an allegory of being dead in trespasses and sins, and elevated into the Promised Land as “living stones” that would ever be alive in remembrance to the Children of Israel, generation after generation after generation.  These stones, in and of themselves, were not level and perfectly formed; but they brought forth into remembrance, into the mind of the people, of He who is “straight”, or “level and true” (ישר - “YaSHaR, of Isaiah 40:3).  These stones, in a “living way”, pointed the people to the remembrance of YHVeH their GOD and Deliverer through Joshua (who in the Greek is “Jesus”).  

In respects to the teachings of Gematria and of  “Mecillah” being “straight and true”, or “YaSHaR”  ישר   , if we make the first letter (the yod, י, which represents GOD’s NAME of YHVeH ), and make it  (and YHVeH our GOD) last (as unbelievers do in their lives); then we read of man’s sinful nature as being - ShaRaY שרי:   of being hostile, the desiring to take over and exercise dominion.  

 It is the call of GOD’s prophet, John the Baptist, to be straight, level, and true, in a call to humility before our GOD and Savior.  If we seek the “Righteousness”  ש (the Shin)  --of  “YH”  י  (the Yod)  -- before our own mind or “Head”   ר  (the Rosh):  then we are given SHiYR  שיר -- “the ability to sing in our circumstances”.  But if we place our own “mind” or “head” ahead of YH and His Righteousness, the we end up with RiYSH  ריש  : “ a poverty of the soul”.

Jesus tells us to seek ye first the Kingdom of YHVeH and His Righteousness, that all the good that He mentions,  might be added unto the one seeking such things as He mentions (Matthew 6:33; cf. Matthew 5:3 ff.)  In fact, if we secure the mind which is like Christ and following GOD’s will, (the Yod before the Rosh), then it seems natural that the fruit, which follows, is righteousness (the Shin).  Thus, YaReSH  ירש  (even after the Gematriac test), means that:  “righteousness”.  This, therefore, is the path of GOD -- the BA (the Way) which leads on up to AB (the Father):  it is through the means of the Cross, which is the act of grace -mercy - and  love by the person of YHVeH Messiah, Jesus Christ.  Christ is the only source to which reconciliation between Holy GOD and unholy mankind can be made. 
In Genesis 6:9, Noah is called a righteous  (Tsaddiq   צדיק) man.  This word is a variant of Tsedaqah  צדקה,  which means “to make straight.”  In Leviticus 19:15, we see Tsaddiq as the straightness of a scale (with the emphasis on the rod), and its ability to weigh evenly and fairly in judgment for all, be they rich or poor, small or great.   Thus, the implication of a narrowness along the lines of Matthew 7:13’s stenos  στενής  as Messiah taught.  In Leviticus 19:36, Tsaddiq is translated as “honest(y)” in the act of measuring, of being free from the predisposition to defraud one’s neighbor. In Psalm 145:17, we read of YHVeH being “Tsaddiq  (strait and righteous) in all His Ways, and loving to all He has made.” 
Jesus says in Matthew 7:13 that not only is the Way narrow, but its gate is as narrow as the Way is.  In other words, the Gate is also an end destination in itself, as well as THE WAY.  And what is the pules  πυλης, this "Gate / Door"  which is the type that accesses to a kingdom or dominion, not being a common door as   “thura” is in the Greek?   This DOOR or “pules” is YHVeH Messiah Himself, its width is the width of his body, arms outstretched wide, and its height is that of  the Cross on which he was hung.
Why is all this so important, you might ask?   The revelation of the DOOR as Christ is so important, that the Pharisees killed James, the half-brother of Christ, after telling him to address the Passover crowds and explain what is meant by it, and upon seeing that conversions over to Christ were taking place (Eusebius, History of the Church, 2.23).
If it is important enough to martyr a man in the process of converting multitudes on a single short analysis, then how important do you think it should be to us to examine, even in our own day?



Christ:  The Door of the BA

     And Jesus said,      “He that enters not by the DOOR into the sheepfold,
 but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
 …I am the DOOR of the sheep.  …  I am the DOOR: 
by  Me, if any man enter in, he shall be saved;
and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”
                                                (John 10:1,7b,9)  KJV

The Hebrew word used for DOOR, as used above in the tenth chapter of John’s Gospel, would be PeTaCH  פתח.  In Gematria, PeTaCH holds a value of 488.  This is the GATE or Destination Entrance-Way of BA.  In the 488 equivalent of BeTHULiYM  בתולים, we find that this entrance is being for “those who have been separated or set apart,” and are, through Christ’s perfect work of the Cross, made “virgins”.  These attain the purity of the BA itself -- and since Christ Jesus is the BA, who is the Image of the Father -- then we see that, it is through the Son, that we attain a righteousness and purity that is beyond ourselves that makes us acceptable to GOD the Father.  This is GOD’s  grace toward us, unmerited/unearned by us, being the gift of GOD, not of works, lest any one should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). 
PeTaCH  פתח  is also Gematrically  synonymous (after the value of 488) with CHeTHLoN  חתלן, which means - “to wrap or envelop”.  Chethlon is describable in three word pictures to this effect.   In the first word picture, we have someone who is enwrapped by clean bandages, such as the victim on the road to Jericho, who is aided and treated by the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-34).  The Good Samaritan pours oil and wine into the victim’s wounds, and then enwraps them with fresh and clean linen.     In the second word picture of CHeTHLoN,  we see the encircling or enwrapping of a protective pen that was used by sheepherders for the protection of their sheep in ancient Israel.  By day, they were led out to graze in the fields.  By night, the sheep were herded into a walled corral,  providing them a defense from predators.    In the third word picture of CHeTHLoN, we are given the illustration of a mother hen gathering her chicks under her wings to protect them from the elements of cold and rain.
It is through the DOOR, through the PeTaCH  פתח  in the person of Jesus Christ, that we have hope of a right relationship with GOD, and hope of a  “snatching away”  from Judgment  (being the hopes and aspirations of the doctrine of the Rapture).  For the next synonym of PeTaCH after its Gematriac (i.e. numerical parallel door) synonym of 488, is CHaTHaPH  חתף - “that or he which clutches and snatches, taking away.”  Thus, Jesus, our DOOR, after the mystery of the Hebrew, shows that He is the Messiah who will also snatch that which is His away, like a thief in the night, before the Great Judgment upon the earth comes (cf. Luke 12:35-40, I Thessalonians 5:2-7).

It is at the DOOR that we see the stripes and the Cross of Yeshua our Messiah.  In the PeTaCH  פתח  we see the suffering Messiah, who after the Gematriac synonym for us
MeCHoLaTHiY  מחלתי : “the grief or affliction of YH.”  The word affliction can be translated for us as “Tribulation”, “trials”, “great Testing”, or “Judgment”.  Christ bore for us our trials and tribulations by going to the Cross for us, being whipped and beaten, and dying for us on our behalf when he was perfectly blameless and guiltless from all sins.  Because of this, we can -- through Christ and His perfect work at the Cross, by trusting into Him, being baptized (in effect) by our Faith into Him -- be delivered from the Tribulation that is coming upon the Earth (Revelation 3:10; cf. Romans 6:3-10, Matthew 22:30-32).
In the DOOR, we also see, after the Gematriac synonym, the PiTuaCH  פתח : “the carved work”.  In YHVeH Messiah, PiTuaCH could refer to the flog marks on His beaten body, or the piercings in His hands and feet and side.   In the New Jerusalem, the work of the Cross and the sufferings are also represented by the Gates of Pearl (Revelation 21:10-21).  The Gates are like tunnels, with a length of 144 cubits or ca. 216 feet.  This length will probably be the distance between the site of the Crucifixion (at the Kidron/Hinom juncture) and the Garden Tomb, into which Christ was temporarily buried -- until He rose from the dead 3 days later.  The pearl, as you may know, is that which is made by the agitation of the oyster by the grains of the sea.  By much affliction or tribulation, that which agitates is made beautiful.  Even so, it may be said of mankind in relation to YHVeH Messiah, who foreknew and foretold this, as Jacob’s prayer to YHVeH demonstrates in  Genesis 32:12.
To the believer, PeTaCH פתח   is reckoned as an OPEN DOOR.  To the unbeliever, it is shut or closed until they reach out to trust into the DOOR, YHVeH Messiah,   
“For whosoever shall call out upon, and invoke or invite
the NAME of  the LORD, shall be saved.”
            (Romans 10:13, Joel 2:32  - AWPR).     
His NAME, to the Gentiles, is Jesus; but to the Israelites, He is Yeshua:  “Salvation”.  He is the same YHVeH into whom father Abraham trusted.  Abraham’s father was Terah, which is Aramaic for a “gate” or “door”.  Abraham left the gate of his father and of his old self in Haran, crossed over to enter into the “gate” or “door” of YHVeH, and became a “new Creation” in GOD.  


A Closer Look at BA
 “No man comes up to the AB (Father) except through Me.,” says Jesus.  The letter Beth also means “house” in Hebrew, as well as being a letter.  In these two letters, we may Gematrically read as either “GOD’s House” (Alef-Beth), or as “the House of GOD” (Beth-Alef).  In either case, the substance of the Way is the same and of equal quality.  In effect, Alef-Beth holds a “greater” distinction than Beth-Alef (John 14:28), but they are equal in substance, being ONE (John 10:30).  In the Hebrew, we read BA as  בא .  This word, Gematrically, points us toward the doctrine of the Oneness and the Trinity of GOD.  BA is ONE word, consisting of TWO letters, having a value of THREE.  In BA, we have the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet, whose path is revealed, even as Jesus said,  “…and many shall inherit eternal life.
Then shall be: the first last, and the last (ones be) first.”
(Matthew 19:29-30  - AWPR)
When we reverse BA, we read AB אב  :  (The)  Father.  The first letter of AB is called an Alef.  Alef stands numerically as 1.  Alef also stands as the abbreviated form for GOD in El, Eloah, and Elohim.  Alef is also one of the Names of GOD, as it is written,
                        “Hear, listen, and be obedient, O Israel,
                         YHVeH our GOD -- YHVeH is ONE!”
                                                            (Deuteronomy 6:4  - AWPR)

                        “And it is (to be) said, IN THAT DAY,
                        YHVeH will be King over all the Earth (and all that therein is);
                        YHVeH shall be ONE (united), and His NAME:  ‘ONE’ !”
                                                            (Zechariah 14:9  - AWPR)

  How is this possible?  How does YHVeH = 1?  Through the Alef:  א
[2]

 The rabbis give YHVeH  יהוה  a Gematriac value of 26.  Yod י holds a value of 10.  Each He ה holds a value of 5.  The Vav ו holds a value of 6.  Thus, Yod (10) +  He (5) + Vav (6) +  He (5) = 26.  Thus, YHVeH / Jehovah / LORD has a Hebraic value of 26.

 This same value is found in the subdivision of Alef.  The explanation of how the rabbis view
Alef  א  subdivided,  is that it is composed of  3 letters. 
A Yod  י in the upper right hand corner (a value of 10);
 a Vav ו  as the middle line or stroke (a value of 6);
and a Yod  י in the lower left hand corner (a value of 10).

 Thus, Alef being revealed as though it were 10 + 6 + 10, equaling a value of 26; and fulfilling the scriptures of Deuteronomy 6:4 and Zechariah 14:9  [3]
 
Now, we subdivided the Alef א as being only two letters, we would have a Yod י, and either an upside down or backward Ayin ע.  Ayin  ע  is “an artesian well that continually gushed forth waters”.  Thus, we may interpret the Ayin ע as being symbolic of “Living Waters”.  To which, in the days of  Jeremiah the prophet,  YHVeH warned,
                        “My people have committed two evils:
                         they have forsaken Me,
                         the mountain-artesian-well-spring -Fountain of Living Waters;
                         (and they have done so) to hew out cisterns,
                         broken cisterns, that cannot hold water.”
                                                                        (Jeremiah 2:13 AWPR)

            “The Hope of  Israel, YHVeH :  all who forsake You shall be ashamed.
              ‘Those who depart from Me shall be written in the Earth,       [cf. John 8:1-9]
               because they have forsaken YHVeH:
                the mountain-artesian-well-spring-Fountain of Living Waters.’ “
                                                                        (Jeremiah 17:13  AWPR)

Christ Jesus is our source of those Living Waters.  The River of Life come from the Throne of YHVeH in Ezekiel 47:1-12.   This River of Life is further defined as the Throne of GOD the Father and the Lamb in Revelation 22:1-2.  Finally, in John 7:37-38, Jesus reveals that He is the Source of the Living Waters of the coming Kingdom and of the New Jerusalem, for out of His innermost hollow shall flow rivers of Living Water.  This appears to indicate that it shall flow out from His heart and through the hole in His side, through which He was pierced (cf. John 19:34). 
The word used for “fountain” in Jeremiah 2:13 and 17:13 is “maqor” מקור.  We are called, in Isaiah 12:3, to draw the waters out of the “maqor” of “Salvation” (or “Jesus”) with joy.  So let us draw a little more from Christ or the “BA” בא .  If we read BA after the subdivision of Alef in two parts, we may read either the phonetic rendering of  Bay-ah  ביע : “a doorway”;  or the means by which we attain passage through  Beiy בעי : through “prayer”.  If we further subdivide the Alef to its full division of three letters, we may read how that BA  בא  becomes  the Hebrew word Biy-vay ביוי :  “at the request of,” “By the permission or leave of.”  Thus, it is only through Jesus that we attain “permission” and gain “access” to “GOD’s House” of Heaven, and to the Father. 
If we were to raise the Alef  א  by 90 degrees, so that the Vav  ו  would stand as a vertical, we will see Christ crucified.  His right wrist being nailed “palm up”, His left wrist being nailed “palm down”.  YHVeH Messiah’s left side, being the exposed side to be pierced by the spear. This position was itself causing “His bones (to be) out of joint” (Psalm 22:14).  The left wrist being bound by the Tefillin, forming the word “Shaddai” (Almighty), which word represents the nation: Israel.  The right hand, elbow down, represents the Messiah as YHVeH, the Right Hand of Power (Matthew 26:64), who -- as its governor --carries the nations of the Earth (Psalm 22:27-28; Isaiah 40:15)                                                                                                          



Jesus said: “I am the Truth”
In the Hebrew, the word for “Truth” (or “aleitheia” in the Greek of John 14:6), is EMeT אמת.  The letter Mem מ in Gematria, stands for “waters” or “peoples”.  The letter Tav ת  stands for a “sign” or the “end” of something.  On Hebrew coins, Tav was actually written with either an “X” or a Cross “†”. 
If we subdivide Alef from Emet, we read       א  מת     “Alef - MeT” or of “GOD’s Death”.  GOD is He who, if divided from the people, sees the Mem-Tav (“the people who come to an end or finality”, or “they who come to the Cross”).  But if GOD, through the Alef, joins Himself to the people, He does so by bringing an end or finality to sin through the Cross.  He becomes their deliverer, their Savior, their “TRUTH”.  Therefore, by taking the Name of EMeT or “Truth” upon Himself, YHVeH Messiah is signifying that in order to deliver mankind, He must somehow die in the process of doing so.  Now if we reverse our reading of EMeT  אמת , we find that “Truth” now becomes TeMA תמא: which means, “to be made complete”.  Even as YHVeH Messiah teaches, we may be reminded,
                        “If you continue in My word,
                          (then)  are ye My disciples indeed:
                          And ye shall know the TRUTH,      [you shall be made complete]
                          and the TRUTH shall make you free.”
                                                                         (John 8:31-32) KJV
Therefore, as our EMeT  אמת, as the  “TRUTH”  of the Mem מ (“the peoples”), Christ can boldly proclaim that He is the “Alef  א and the Tav ת, the First and the Last (even as Alef and Tav are the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet and in EMeT).  As Alef, He is  our GOD;  and as Tav, He is  our final ending -- and this, with all accuracy and fidelity to His Scriptures.
Reversed, the last and first letters spell “ta(w)”  תא in the Hebrew.  Ta(w) means a “room, chamber, or sanctuary”.  Therefore, if in EMeT (Truth) Christ becomes a “Ta(w)” of the “Mem” - what is being said, Gematrically speaking, is that Christ is also become “a Sanctuary of the peoples.”  Of this,
                         “A Tower of Strength is the Name of YHVeH,
                           the Righteous run into it, and are exalted on high (to safety).”
                                                                       (Proverbs 18:10, translation mine)

                         “ The LORD                                            [in Hebrew - “YHVeH”]
                             also thundered in the heavens, the Highest gave His Voice…
                                   He sent from above, He took me,
                                   He drew me out of many waters…
                                   He brought me forth into a Large Place;
                                   He delivered me, because He delighted in me.”
                                                                        (Psalm 18:13,16,19)  KJV

 Now, to this effect, we see the fulfillment of the promise of Messiah in John 12:26,
                         “If any man serve Me, let him follow Me;
                          and where I am, there shall also  My servant be.”  KJV
                       


And Jesus said:  “I am the Life”
In the Greek, the word for “life” is Zoe  (ζηω).  This word speaks of a “living” existence.  In the Hebrew, this kind of life is usually written after the plural as CHaYYiM חיים,  because (say the rabbis) we are not just given one life to live by the Almighty, but two: the one in this life and world, and the other in the world and life to come.  The singular life is simple written as CHaY   חי.  If we separate the letter Mem  ם from CHaYYiM, and read it as two words ChaYaY - Mem, we read: “to revive the people”, “to save the lives of the people”.  In the very simple words of Messiah, we see His Deity, His Mission, His Purpose, all in three little words contained within John 14:6 -- Way, Truth, Life.  It’s all wrapped up in a neat little package for us to unwrap and discover. 
If we separate one Yod י from CHaYYiM, and shuffle the letters, we can read it as Y(H)  YaCHaM   י   יחם  - which means “YH will conceive (and give birth to),  and “YH will be hot”.  It is in GOD’s very nature to promote and perpetuate Life, not death.  This is the message behind John 14:6 and 3:16 and other passages. 
So the question remains, as we remember the Cross and read the Hebrew of John 14:6’s  Way, Truth, and Life backwards:
Me-YaCH  TeMA  AB?  “Who is to be made complete in the Father?”

Will we search for the True Reality or “aleitheia”?

In the Greek, “aleitheia” is the true reality as things and events really are, not as they may or may not necessarily be perceived as being.  Aleitheia is that true reality that finds its sense of purpose in being exalted and not hidden.  In effect, like the wind, Truth is often a living - breathing - moving thing, intangible, ever present, and ever real.  Aleitheia is a presence that must always be dealt with, whether one wishes to perceive it or escape it (be it through drug induced stupors or mental illness or unconsciousness).   
In the Scriptures, Truth is perceived and revealed in the knowledge of the glory of YHVeH:  as it is written,     
"For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge 
of knowing the glory
and abundant weighty majesty of YHVeH,    
(even) as the waters    cover the sea.” 
 (Isaiah 11:9; Habakkuk 2:14 translation mine).

GOD’s glory is compared to the great weight of the waters of the sea upon the land below it.  In some place shallow, in some places very deep.  Water that is layer upon layer upon layer in thickness, movement, temperature, and teeming with life.  GOD’s glory will be so abundant, that we will seem to be like the fish of the sea, swimming endlessly in the knowledge of knowing His glorious abundant and weighty majesty in joy unspeakable.
Revelations and insights such as these, are often hard to convey when unbelief blocks the way.  The apostle Paul wrestles with the concept of discovering GOD's revealed TRUTH to man in his letter to the Ephesians, which he wrote, in part, verifying and bringing up, in  part of John’s  53 A.D. (or at the latest, 54 A.D.) viewing of the Apocalypse to the very Churches over whom John the Apostle resided, saying,

"To me, the least of all the saints, was this grace given:
to preach the Gospel in the nations,
(which are) the unexplored riches of Christ, and to bring to light all of what is
the fellowship of the mystery -- having been hidden from eternity in GOD --
all things having been created through Jesus Christ,
so that now it might be made known to rulers and to the authorities
in the heavenlies through the Church:
the much diversified and multi-colored wisdom of GOD." [cf. Rev. 21:14, 19-21]             
                                                              (Ephesians 3:8-10 - AWPR) 
           
So it is, that the Truth or the Truer Reality of what really is, is not made known
or transparent to man; but rather, must somehow be revealed.  Paul explains this possibility as that of the Flesh or Physical state of man, warring or being in constant conflict with the Spirit (the intangible and unseen identity) of man: Galatians 5:17, Ephesians 1:17-18, Galatians 5:16.  And he does so in a way, that recognizes an early dating of Revelation.
YHVeH Yeshua recognized the fact of man's blindness and deafness to Aleitheia, when He said,    "I thank thee, O Father, LORD of Heaven and Earth,
                because thou hast hid these things                [the Aleitheia]
                             from the wise and prudent,
                              and hast revealed them unto babes.
                             Even so, Father: for it so seemed good in Thy sight."
                                                                (Matthew 11:25-26) KJV
     
So, what is this TRUTH?  This Truer Reality to which man is oft made unaware?  Jesus answered that in the next verse in Matthew 11:27, that:
                           "All things are delivered unto Me of My Father:
                 and no man knoweth  the Son, but the Father:
                 neither knoweth any man the Father, except the Son,
                 and to whomsoever the Son will reveal."     KJV
           





Yeshua (Jesus) the Way prophesied and identified as King Messiah From the Old Testament or Tanakh:

5 identifications of Yeshua in the Torah for the 5  Books of Moses:

Genesis 49:18 " I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord."
 the name Yeshua (Yod-Shin-Vav-Ayin having a value of 386) appears in the Hebrew as the identity of King Messiah in this word that is generically translated as "salvation" in the English.  From the Torah’s own prophecy, from Jacob speaking as one of the prophets, is Yeshua NAMED by the patriarch as the Savior of his progeny. 
In a more proper translation of Jacob's words, we now read this verse as "I have waited for thy Yeshua, O YHVeH."   In effect, Genesis 49:18 tells us that "Yeshua" was likely a name that even the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob by revelation from the LORD knew.

Not only they by one verse, but more specifically, Moses the lawgiver without question in 3 verses that he himself scribed:

Exodus 14:13
 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the Yeshua of the L-RD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

Exodus 15:2 
 The L-RD is my strength and song, and he is become my Yeshua : He is my G-D, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.

In context of these two chapters, this same G-D, Yeshua, is He who "roars from Heaven" to save Israel at the Reed / Red Sea, and is He who saves and Raptures (snatches to safety) in Psalm 50:1-6, Psalm 29:3; Joel 2:11,3:15-16.


He is scorned and lightly esteemed by those who claim themselves as the best and most upright of Jews or of Israel (Genesis Rabbah 77:1, Bamidbar/ Numbers 23:10, Yoma 73b) in the end times:

Deuteronomy 32:15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he abandoned G-D which made him, and scorned lightly the Rock of his Yeshua.

Further, in the Torah, the first 5 books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) there are some 600,000 letters and a prophetical association essentially kept close to the vest by the Hebrew Scribes that I also wish to touch upon. 

While  Numbers 25:12 does not directly use the name of Yeshua, there is a specific direct association to the Name in Gematria and a viewing of the hand-written manuscripts of the Hebrew Scribes.  In the King James it reads:  
 12 Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:

In the Hebrew of the Westminster Leningrad Codex, we read:

  לָכֵ֖ן אֱמֹ֑ר הִנְנִ֨י נֹתֵ֥ן לֹ֛ו אֶת־בְּרִיתִ֖י שָׁלֹֽום׃

 What is of particular interest and unknown to most laity, is that in the Hebrew word of Shalom   שָׁלֹֽום
... the word to the farthest left in the Hebrew text above. In the written text of manuscripts as penned by the scribes, Shalom appears as
 


 In Numbers 25:12, the eternal "covenant of Peace [Shalom]" in which Phineas and his descendants are offered an eternal priesthood with (cf. Numbers 25:13) is the only place in Scripture where a letter is cut in half in the Hebrew Torah manuscripts and not rendering it "traif" because it is a custom believed to be from the very hand of Moses himself.  The Vav is sliced at a slant to become a lower vav with an upper yod.

 The Gematriac value in this word Shalom [Peace] shifts from 376 to 386, which becomes the same numeric value as Yeshua ישוע    (whom we Gentiles call Jesus).

 The Expression "covenant of Peace" is of particular interest in its reappearance in Isaiah 54:10, and then in its association with the Davidic Messiah who is to come in Ezekiel 34:25, namely Christ. Therefore, Numbers 25:12 prophetically reveals the name of Yeshua, Messiah, the GOD-Man who is both without beginning or end, as well as He who must become a physical son of David in the flesh. This split vav is the etymological "original intent of the word" equivalent of placing the Cross right smack dab in the middle of the word Shalom / Peace, and declaring that the ruler of Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7) who fulfills these words must be both GOD and Man, the GOD-Man. 

With the Mosaic action of the Vav being cut in half and effectually forming two letters in place of the one (a sub-VAV and a YOD), we also may infer from the prophecy revealing Yeshua that in the  word of Shalom, 5 letters now take the place of 4. 



The split-Vav itself is a symbolism of Yeshua upon the Cross, He who is both the heavenly YHVeH pre-incarnate and the earthly man of the lineage of King David.  The 4 letters of Shalom represent the 4 Gospels as being the restoration of the intent of the 5 Books of the Law / Instruction / Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy). 


 The anomaly of the split Vav as found in Shalom in Numbers 25:12,
 
 the ONLY time it in any instance of a split letter occurs in all the Bible and is acceptable, is kept by tradition because it is specifically taught that this one split letter requirement in this word and in this verse came from the copy that was scribed by the hand of the Lawgiver Moses himself from the first Hebrew manuscript down to those created by hand in the present day.  


The split Vav in Numbers 25:12  is the only letter, and it is the only time any letter in all 600,000 letters of the Torah may be broken without rendering the entire Torah Scroll as “traif” / "not kosher"; because it is taught that this tradition was what Moses himself wrote in the very  manuscript he wrote at the first (when it was still extant ).  At the very least then, this tradition must date to the reign of King Hezekiah in the 630s B.C.

  This is most significant in regard to Torah and the tradition which has retained it, because unknowingly, the Scribes of the sons of Israel have retained a prophetical confirmation of Jesus Christ in the midst of their Law / Instruction.
____________________________________________________


 ישוע                Yeshua...Yod - Shin - Vav - Ayin

Yod - The abbreviation of the Holy NAME for G-D (YHVeH)

Shin - The phonetic is related to the root word shnh, which is in turn related to shani (scarlet...appearing 42 times in the Tanakh). Shnh is the more correct Gematriac translation than the next "traditional" option. Shin is secondly, also related to shen (ivory tooth, sharp), a derivative of the root word shanan.

Vav - A hook (as those silver and gold hooks upon which the Temple curtains of Exodus chapters 26, 27, 36, and 38 hang, for example). It can even be used to describe a peg (or nail) shape as those 3 found in Jesus at the Cross.

Ayin - artesian well spring flowing/living waters. It is also translated as that source of that which is seen with the eye. From the Ugaritic "yn" - 'to behold'.

Thus, Yeshua is YHVeH's Crimson Hook which flows like a stream of living waters...in other words, the very name Yeshua, prophesied in the Tanakh...speaks of the coming Cross and of G-D shedding his eternal blood upon it.

He upon whom the Universe hangs and is upheld by, is prophesied to hang upon the Cross...and in turn, become both the atonement and the sanctuary of all who trust into Him.

Yesha" and "Yasha" appear some 233 times in addition to "Yeshua" as "salvation deliverance" in the OT. Most of my greatest critics admit being oblivious to researching the texts themselves or of the particulars of the Hebrew or Greek. In regard to the Hebrew, the Scribes who have the Massorah still use works published by Christian David Ginsberg , despite the fact that his great insightful knowledge to follow the TRUE WAY he found in the Scriptures themselves, Scriptures that testify most unmistakeably and identify Yeshua / Jesus as that EMeT or Aleitheia and led him to become and REMAIN a born-again, thoroughly still Jewish, Christian all his life.  Despite David Ginsberg adopting Christian as his new first name and later joining the Trinitarian Society in England and was friends with those such as E.W. Bullinger, to this day, Jewish Scribes religiously accept and use his works...except where they wish to ignore Christ their Messiah and King.  

The point I am making with all this, is that Christ is readily available to be seen in the OT to the Hebrew reader and speaker. The less brainwashed they are on how NOT to read and NOT to think a certain way, the more easily they see what the text says, rather than through the prism of bias they insert into the text.

That brainwashing, says Paul in (2 Corinthians 3) is as a veil upon the mind and heart. When the veil is taken away, and one can read in liberty, Messhiach is more readily revealed as layer upon layer is easily removed, and the light of the post-Torah passages of the Tanakh shines forth.  Christ is everywhere in OT prophecy, from Genesis 1:1 to Malachi.

I bring "basar", or the "good news", that as John 14:6 clearly reveals, Christ Jesus is "[T]he Way,
  and the Truth, and the Life:no man cometh unto the Father, but by [Him]."

Christian Conservatives the world over, need to get back to the joying in the basar, the euaggelizo, the proclaiming of the good news of salvation, deliverance, and of Yeshua...the hope of even the ancient Patriarch Jacob -- as he spake by the Holy Spirit -- as he prophesied over his progeny.

It is my hope, that the importance of the truth and true reality of the Cross be made manifest to you in ways far beyond my comprehension, and bless you in the wisdom of  knowledge and  understanding,  unto eternal life in and through Jesus Christ, our LORD. Shalom.

2    The Trinitarian explanation of the Alef has been championed in the 1990s among the Jews by Rabbi Benjamin Blech, in his widely accepted and acclaimed Jewish book, “The Secrets of Hebrew Words”  (Northvale, N.J.:  Jason Aronson Inc. © 1991).  Much of what I learned about Gematria began with this book, and went from this starting point on.  Though a monotheistic Jew who is NOT Christian, his above book is highly recommended by me, for those interested in this type of study, as “essential”.  Before launching such an embarkation, I recommend first that they be familiar with the Hebrew alphabet and can perfectly number every Hebrew word in Strong’s to its Gematriac value as their beginning exercise. 
 
3       How strange it is: that so many rabbinical and scribal Jews can presently see (and still "not see") the Trinity of GOD in special ways that the average gentile Christian does not.  This often still astounds -- it still amazes me to this day.  But still, as Christians and as part of the human race, we are blessed by the Jewish people, and we give thanks for their presence upon the Earth (“for the gifts and calling of GOD are without repentance.” - Romans 11:29).  As a nation, Israel should be our best friend, whose best interests and protection should be as our own.
May we as Christians always remember this, and apply this in our politics and personal witness.  Amen.
