A word about "Torah terrorists" and their abusive behavior...

I HAVE TO SAY I'M GLAD CHRISTMAS IS OVER because I'm tired of seeing all the viciousness aimed at Christians by certain supposed Torah observant types who clearly view themselves as being the only perfect people on the planet.

 They verbally rip to shreds those who are not yet on the same plane as they are, and attempt to give everyone a "biblical concussion" (peppered with plenty of personal opinion!) while never hesitating to lord their self-perceived superiority over those they perceive as "inferior" in Bible knowledge. 

 Most of their posts reflect nothing but pride, arrogance and haughtiness as they spend their time telling everyone else what to do ... clearly never realizing that, by their ungodly behavior, they are proving to the world that they aren't actually bothering to "walk the walk" themselves! 

Did you know that ADONAI HATES negative behavior? Take a look at some of the passages revealing that fact:

Proverbs 6: 16 There are six things ADONAI hates, seven which he detests: 17 a haughty look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet swift in running to do evil, 19 a false witness who lies with every breath, and him who sows strife among brothers. (CJB)

Titus 1:7:  7 For an overseer, as someone entrusted with God’s affairs, must be blameless — he must not be self-willed or quick-tempered, he must not drink excessively, get into fights or be greedy for dishonest gain. 8 On the contrary, he must be hospitable, devoted to good, sober-mindedness, uprightness, holiness and self-control. 9 He must hold firmly to the trustworthy Message that agrees with the doctrine; so that by his sound teaching he will be able to exhort and encourage, and also to refute those who speak against it. (CJB)

James 4:1-2: 1. Let there not be many teachers among you, my Brothers; knowing that as such we will receive a more severe judgment.  2. For we all offend in many things. Whoever does not offend in discourse is a perfect man who can also keep his whole body in servitude. (AENT)

James 6: 6. Now the tongue is a fire, and the world of sin is like a forest. And this tongue, which is one among our members, corrupts our whole body; and it inflames the series of our generations that roll on like a wheel; and it is itself on fire.  7. For all natures of beasts and birds and reptiles of the sea or land are dominated by the nature of man.  8. But the tongue has no one been able to tame: it is an evil thing, unruly and full of deadly poison.  9. For with it, we bless Master YHWH and Father; and with it we curse men who were made in the image of Elohim:  10. and from the same mouth issues forth curses and blessings. (AENT)

Luke 20: 45. And while all of the people were listening, he said to his disciples,  46. Beware of the scribes who desire to walk in long robes and love a greeting in the public square and the chief seats in the assembly and the chief places at banquets.  47. Those who devour the houses of widows with the pretense of prolonging their prayers, they will receive a greater judgment. (AENT)

Proverbs 20:3: Avoiding quarrels brings a person honor; for any fool can explode in anger. (CJB)

Proverbs 21:4 Haughty looks, a proud heart -what the wicked plow is sin.(CJB)

Romans 12:16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. (CJB)

There are many more scriptures such as the above”; but you get the gist. If you know people like this personally (or here on Facebook), gently remind them that their behavior is not only anti-Torah, but also goes against everything Yeshua taught.

If they refuse your gentle nudge, or become belligerent, just let them be. Disassociate yourself and shake the dust from your sandals. Turn them over to ADONAI and keep them in your prayers. They’re not your problem and they’re not worth your time and energy.

Israel has a RIGHT to defend herself, and “the world” needs to back off!

"The world" has been trying to kill off "the Jews" since time immemorial, and they ALWAYS "bounced back" (because YHWH is with them!); and they have bent over backwards to appease everyone in all sorts of ways. Modern day Israel doesn't go out to pick on people or start wars - yet, way too often, they are provoked into unwanted combat by bullies who want them dead.

In my humble opinion, it's way PAST time they stood up to the terrorists who keep trying to wipe them out! It's time for them to STOP giving away their Land and their Temple Mount, etc., to appease those who didn't have a right to squat on THEIR GOD-GIVEN LAND, Israel, in the first place. You can’t negotiate with those who hate you enough to want you DEAD!


If someone came to your house time and time again to harass, terrorize, rape the women and/or kill your family and neighbors - would YOU stand by and do nothing? Would YOU sit there and whine and cry or hide like some simpering coward and let everyone else tell you to just back away and appease the swines who keeps attacking you? Or would you FINALLY grow a backbone and start fighting back, with every last ounce of strength you could muster - even if it meant your own death?

As sad as it is, EVERY war has "collateral damage" with innocent bystanders being killed. But that's just the way it goes. War is HELL!

I guarantee you, if it were MY family or neighborhood being attacked by Hamas or Isis or any other human dung who exist only to KILL, I would fight like HELL to put the hurt on them in every way available to me - and I wouldn't let ANYBODY tell me to sit down , shut up, and deal with it.

As much as I hate to see innocents getting hurt and killed, "the world" needs to understand Israel is not defending itself against a government; it's defending itself against the world’s barbaric extremists who exist only to hate the Jews and wipe them out!

Reader question about Galatians 3:10


I have a question on Gal. 3:10. My grandson insists that this verse means that if we keep His commandments we are under a curse. And how do I explain the comment, "for those that are servants of Torah are still under a curse.” Please help!


Those are great questions, and the problem is that Paul was very hard to understand. Even Peter said that he would be (2 Peter 3:15-18).

First, let's take a look at who Paul was writing to ... The congregations in Galatia (Galatians 1:2). Why was he writing to them? Because they had already fallen away from faith in the Messiah and had been confused and challenged by men who did not believe in the Messiah (1:6-7). What did Paul say about these teachers?

He said they " are men who agitated you and desired to pervert the Good News of Mashiyach" (1:7), and that these men "preach outside from what was preached to you, let them be cursed. ... Whichever man preaches to you outside of what you have received, let him be accursed" (1:8-9).

Now, read Galatians 3 with this in mind - but first, understand that Torah says: "A curse on anyone who does not confirm the words of this Torah by putting them into practice" (Deuteronomy 27:26).

In Galatians 3, Paul was teaching (again) that righteousness does not come through "works"; rather, that righteousness is through faith, and faith is demonstrated by works (Galatians 3:2-6). Then, referring to Deuteronomy 27:26, Paul said in 3:10 "For those who are servants of Torah are still under a curse, for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not act 35 on all that is written in this book of Torah.”

Paul went on through the rest of Galatians 3 to explain that he was talking about those very men whom he mentioned back in Galatians 1:7, that those men were cursed because they taught Torah, but they DID NOT LIVE BY TORAH.

Read the way Paul puts it in Romans 2: "13. For not the hearers of Torah are righteous before Elohim; but the doers of Torah are being made righteous. 14. For if Gentiles who have not Torah will, by their nature, do the things of Torah; they, while without Torah, become a Torah to themselves.

15. Additionally, they show the work of Torah as it is inscribed on their hearts; and their conscience bears testimony to them, their own reflections rebuking or vindicating one another" (Romans 2:13-15). But about the Torah-teachers he says:

"17. But if you who are called a Jew, and rely yourself on Torah and glory in Elohim, 18. (And further that you think) that you know His good pleasure and discern obligations because you are instructed in Torah; 19. And (that Elohim) has confidence in yourself, that you are a guide to the blind, and a light to them who are in darkness, 20. And an instructor of those lacking knowledge, and a preceptor to the young; and you have the appearance of knowledge and of verity in Torah (then what do you all say to the following):

21. You therefore, who teach others, teach you not yourself? And you who teach that men must not steal, do you steal? 22. And you who say, “Men must not commit adultery,” do you commit adultery? And you who condemn idols, do you plunder the sanctuary? 23. And you who glory in Torah, don’t you, by acting contrary to Torah, insult Elohim himself? (Romans 2:17-23).

SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT: When Paul wrote in Galatians 3:10 that those who are servants of Torah [that is, they demand serving Torah, not living by Torah] are still under a curse because they, themselves don't live by Torah through as servants to YHWH - which is exactly as Torah teaches (refer back to Deuteronomy 27:26).

A reader’s thoughts about the Middle East, the Parallels and Reliving the 1930s


I’m writing to throw out some thoughts for your readers to ponder, because I’ve been wondering if anyone else had noticed these things, too.

For instance, over the last several years, I've been fascinated by the Middle East. Since becoming a believer in YHWH, I've realized that the events in the Middle East (ancient AND modern) have repercussions on the rest of the planet (Genesis 10:1-4, Genesis 10:8-12, Genesis 10:25, Genesis 11:1-32, Genesis 12:1-3, Genesis 16:12, Genesis 19:24-26, Genesis 36, Genesis 46, and Joshua 10:13-14). 

People do mock me over this. Regardless of where we live, we must realize YHWH is in control and that events in the Middle East are still forecast to happen in the not too distant future (Yeshayahu 17, Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38 and 39, Joel 3:12 and Revelation 16:12).

I’ve also been wondering if anyone else has noticed the pararallels between the Islamic world and the actions of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan? I see many parallels. The actions of Hamas and Hezbollah as well the rhetoric of Iran's Revolutionary Guard mirror that of Hitler and the Third Reich. Islamic suicide bombers mirror the tactics of Imperial Japan's kamikaze pilots crashing their planes into Allied warships. I hope many more out there come to YHWH while there is still time. The Prophetic Clock is ticking. YHWH isn't messing around.

Lastly, does it seem to you as if we re repeating the events of the 1930s?  Every day, I see reports on the Israel-Hamas war while surfing the web. Rampant Anti-Semitism spreads like a virus (like other perversions such as homosexuality and drug-use). May I please obtain some insight into this? I know that we are living in the End Times and that the days are likened to the days of Noah and Lot. I know we must do our best to be Set Apart, especially right now and do our best to focus on YHWH and His Word and stay away from darkness, deception, falsehoods, lies and ignorance.


These are some very deep and appropriate thoughts to ponder, and I agree with everything you wrote.  I would love to hear from our other readers, to get their perspective on this!

Matthew 7: 1 “Don’t judge, so that you won’t be judged. 2 For the way you judge others is how you will be judged — the measure with which you measure out will be used to measure to you.

3 Why do you see the splinter in your brother’s eye but not notice the log in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the splinter out of your eye,’ when you have the log in your own eye?

5 You hypocrite! First, take the log out of your own eye; then you will see clearly, so that you can remove the splinter from your brother’s eye! (CJB)

IN OTHER WORDS, “you” should not judge by your own judgment, but by YAHWEH’s righteous judgment. (Deuteronomy 1:17; Psalm 37:30, 31. ) Yeshua teaches that justice (judgment) is one of the more important matters of Torah, Matthew 23:23, but if you judge by your own standards then YHWH will use your own standards to judge you. Also, see Exodus 21:24; Leviticus 24:20; Deuteronomy 19:21.

BOTTOM LINE: No one is perfect - and that includes those who love to sit in judgment of others! If a person has repented and apologized for their past mistakes, then you do NOT have the right to constantly remind and harass them about it. Instead, you need to do a self-examination, make a list of your OWN mistakes, figure out what YOU have perpetrated against God, and then start doing some repenting and apologizing of your own. YAHWEH is the final Judge of all of us; not you!
