Your Sunday Bread: Is Rah El?

1John2-15-16I was sitting here and the thought occurred that people take their sin lightly believing its not hurting anyone. Of course, it [the sin that so easily beset] feels good, otherwise, no one would participate would they?

In the Hebrew text there is only one word which describes that force opposite of good, or right and that is ‘rah’ which means something so disgustingly unpleasant that when in its presence one is face to face with a very distressful or injurious situation. According to the Hebrew definition this premise of ‘rah’ goes beyond what is reasonable [to imagine], or rather, what is predictable. In fact, in the Hebrew the term is such that there is evidence of malignancy there. Go see for yourself, that is, rah: Strongs G7451; and or, root ‘ra’ah’ H7489. Here we want to speak about the translation and the tendency that some of the power is lost when the word ‘rah’ becomes evil vs wicked. Let’s talk about this.

Accordingly, scripture tells us that the temptations appeal to our innermost senses, that is, (a) lust of the flesh, (b) lust of the eyes, and (c) the pride of life which all create in us ‘beastly’ personalities if not balanced with life in righteousness, or rather being led by Yah’s Spirit (Galatians 5:16). Then know that one is ‘rah’ if there is not the Ruach in us to help us through these temptations.

So then we note this term rah sheds light on our behavior, and one should ask why would Yahuah call us “filthy rags” if this were not so? In fact, one should question why the covenant was necessary in the first place, however, we have not questioned this and have set about to accept man’s terms over the Most High’s.

“Because all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world.” (1 John 2:16). This is the new testament which some people claim gives premise to disobey. No, we have not called our idolatrous acts disobedience, however, this thing is so critical that people even upon seeing truth claim that the law is abolished. Have not people eyes to ear and see truth? Obviously not!Here is what happen when ‘rah’ became evil:

morally wrong or bad; immoral; wicked

This definition is not explanatory since it doesn’t challenge one’s moral compass. What is it then which makes a person immoral according to the Most High? And if we never visit Torah how would we know it?Read: The first books [Torah], but Exodus 20 is a good guide.

Wicked:

morally bad
: having or showing slightly bad thoughts in a way that is funny or not serious
: very bad or unpleasant

Since we know that we love and like our sin then how can we identify with these definitions without explanation?For your hearing:”Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” (1 John 2:15). In essence, one should ask Is ‘Rah’ El?

Paganism and the Holiday Season

download (2)So then I heard someone say “Thank the Lord we made it to another one”, and I was thinking to myself ‘Another what?’

I could have taken this to say that the person was thankful for another day, but I knew this person was thinking what all people still pagan in their thinking thought of yesterday, and that is, ‘Thanksgiving’.

Truly we are hooked. We are hooked when all the evidence presented straight from the word of the Most High is ignored. We are hooked if we cannot break free from it.

In the past, I have never seen anyone carry over the message of repentance into the Thanksgiving dinner table discussion. Hence, there are game discussions, what happened over the last year since we met and families sometimes in the same city have not the forewithal to call and check on a loved one.

In fact, I have to wonder if there is any care or compassion past this one day. In essence, repentance then is not a topic of worldly tradition leading no where. Plus the fact that more people sin yet again through gluttony during the holiday season.

Today: Think better than that and say to be thankful I will seek out the will of the Most High for myself and those I love. Prayerfully eyes will be opened and ears will hear truth.

For your hearing:
Matthew 4: 13-17

China Dishes

 

When I was a young girl Christmas was always a magical time. The colorful tree with it’s ornaments and bright lights was always a source of awe and excitement! We had some great Christmas holidays, and Mama would be sure to ask us what we wanted to receive. When we were older we had the opportunity to write our lists so that Santa could bring us our hearts desires, one Christmas I asked Santa for China dishes.

As I picked up the last of my gifts, I noticed that it was heavy, more weightier than all the others. I unwrapped it with the anticipation that I would receive what I expected there. Holding my breath I tore the layers frantically, and then I saw them, in all their pink and white essence; the most magnificent china dishes that I had ever saw and they belonged to me. I was so happy!

There was a price that came with my new china dishes, a warning attached to them, issued to me by my mother as she said, “Don’t break them!

My response was, “I’m not!”
