Video, You are not a God Created, Phillips, Dean & Craig http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xPzTSpbYmk


THE ETERNAL ONE is THE LORD MY God.

MOSES, MIRIAM and Israel sang this song at the shores of the Sea:
Mi-cha-mo-cha ba-ei-lim, Adonai?
Mi ka-mo-cha, neh-dar ba-ko-desh, no-ra t’hi-lot, o-sei feh-leh?
Mal-chu-t’cha ra-u va-neh-cha, bo-kei-a yam li-f’nei Mo-sheh; zeh Ei-li!  A-nu v’a-m’ru: Adonai yim-loch l’o-lam va’ed!
V’neh-eh-mar: Ki fa-da Adonai et Ya-a-kov, u-g’a-lo mi-yad cha-zak mi-meh-nu.
Ba-ruch a-ta Adonai, ga-al Yis-ra-eil.


Who is like You, Eternal One, among the gods that are worshipped? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in splendor, doing wonders?
In their escape from the sea, Your children saw your sovereign might displayed. “This is my God!” they creid. “The Eternal will reign for ever and ever!”
And it has been said: The Eternal One delivered Jacob, and redeemed us from the hand of one stronger than ourselves.
We praise You, O God, Redeemer of Israel.

PARSHA VAYELECH – Deuteronomy 31:1-30


Joshua to Succeed Moses – Deuteronomy 31:1-8


1 Then Moses went out and spoke these words to all Israel: 2 “I am now a hundred and twenty years old and I am no longer able to lead you. The LORD has said to me, ‘You shall not cross the Jordan.’ 3 The LORD your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy these nations before you, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua also will cross over ahead of you, as the LORD said. 4 And the LORD will do to them what he did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, whom he destroyed along with their land. 5 The LORD will deliver them to you, and you must do to them all that I have commanded you. 6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”


7 Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the LORD swore to their forefathers to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. 8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”


The Reading of the Law – Deuteronomy 31:9 – 13


9 So Moses wrote down this law and gave it to the priests, the sons of Levi, who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and to all the elders of Israel. 10 Then Moses commanded them: “At the end of every seven years, in the year for canceling debts, during the Feast of Tabernacles, 11 when all Israel comes to appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose, you shall read this law before them in their hearing. 12 Assemble the people—men, women and children, and the aliens living in your towns—so they can listen and learn to fear the LORD your God and follow carefully all the words of this law. 13 Their children, who do not know this law, must hear it and learn to fear the LORD your God as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess.”


Israel’s Rebellion Predicted – Deuteronomy 31:14 – 29


14 The LORD said to Moses, “Now the day of your death is near. Call Joshua and present yourselves at the Tent of Meeting, where I will commission him.” So Moses and Joshua came and presented themselves at the Tent of Meeting.


15 Then the LORD appeared at the Tent in a pillar of cloud, and the cloud stood over the entrance to the Tent. 16 And the LORD said to Moses: “You are going to rest with your fathers, and these people will soon prostitute themselves to the foreign gods of the land they are entering. They will forsake me and break the covenant I made with them. 17 On that day I will become angry with them and forsake them; I will hide my face from them, and they will be destroyed. Many disasters and difficulties will come upon them, and on that day they will ask, ‘Have not these disasters come upon us because our God is not with us?’ 18 And I will certainly hide my face on that day because of all their wickedness in turning to other gods.


19 “Now write down for yourselves this song and teach it to the Israelites and have them sing it, so that it may be a witness for me against them. 20 When I have brought them into the land flowing with milk and honey, the land I promised on oath to their forefathers, and when they eat their fill and thrive, they will turn to other gods and worship them, rejecting me and breaking my covenant. 21 And when many disasters and difficulties come upon them, this song will testify against them, because it will not be forgotten by their descendants. I know what they are disposed to do, even before I bring them into the land I promised them on oath.” 22 So Moses wrote down this song that day and taught it to the Israelites.


23 The LORD gave this command to Joshua son of Nun: “Be strong and courageous, for you will bring the Israelites into the land I promised them on oath, and I myself will be with you.”


24 After Moses finished writing in a book the words of this law from beginning to end, 25 he gave this command to the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD: 26 “Take this Book of the Law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God. There it will remain as a witness against you. 27 For I know how rebellious and stiff-necked you are. If you have been rebellious against the LORD while I am still alive and with you, how much more will you rebel after I die! 28 Assemble before me all the elders of your tribes and all your officials, so that I can speak these words in their hearing and call heaven and earth to testify against them. 29 For I know that after my death you are sure to become utterly corrupt and to turn from the way I have commanded you. In days to come, disaster will fall upon you because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD and provoke him to anger by what your hands have made.”


The Song of Moses – Deuteronomy 31:30 


30 And Moses recited the words of this song from beginning to end in the hearing of the whole assembly of Israel:

This is the only God some of you know;
you will find out that Gods word (Bible)
will stand over your word.

Commentary:


This has to be the most difficult memorial Parsha for me to grasp. I cannot say good-bye to the biblical character, Moses, from the pages of my personal Bible. Help me say Good bye Moses. I love you. See you next time. What a wonderful and fascinating deliverer. Moses is a prophet, a man that delivered the children’s children of the Exodus into the promise land, when their parents would have left them as prey. Oh I know too much about abandonment issues. Yes Moses is a warrior, a real servant of the Most High God. On the good side we will study prophets such as Samuel, Jeremiah and Joshua, the High Priest, who is commissioned to replace Moses.


I believe that what stands are more importantly than anything is that God will bring you back to repentance and forgiveness and in turn he will forgive you on the condition that you turn back from your evil ways and observe this law. If you observe this law, you will know when it is time to be redeemed; to return to the promise land; and your enemies being your judge will give their life to Jesus (Messiah) and you will find safety and assurance in the promise land. (Luke 15:1-7; 2nd Kings 11:3) Otherwise, you find misfortune, desolation, destruction, war, poverty and famine – and the gentiles will have dominion of the promise land, starting from the courts of Solomon.


You have to ask, if Moses were not a 120 years old, would he have enjoyed the Promise land in peace if the followers would not have provoked him, and caused him not to sanctify the name of the LORD Thy God? I am thinking maybe this would have been better for Moses because he would have been in warfare for his entire life with the surrounding nations. Like, the nations stood in anger when Jesus walked the earth. However the major conversion tool is do you believe that Jesus did all that he said he could do, and he is who he says he is?





In closing, Moses said to the people I already know that you will be rebellious and stiff-necked. It is interesting that Moses knew the people would be rebellious against God, and abandon the Law which would lead the people back to God. Moses already knew that stiff-necked people will go against the majority of an ethnic group in a metropolitan, knowing that it would only result in being crushed or smashed, which is a type of destruction leading to mortal wounding and death. Can you think of a time in history that a people were set aside for genocide or destruction because of being at war with another nation or culture? In America the U.S. constitution is supreme, and thanks to the 18th Amendment exploitation and slavery are outlawed in this country. As a matter of fact, America has been an advocate for the rule of law, democracy and liberty and freedom for many countries, a shining example of what America aims to be everyday for each and every citizen that is equal before the law.

Concluding the Parsha for Jesus Christ, Nitzavim-Vayalech (Deuteronomy 29:9 through Deuteronomy 31:1-30) is the one time of year that I check to see if people are aware of translations and a working knowledge of God, from the perspective of Judah. Knowing God [Elokim (א-להים)] by His name has nothing to do with doctrine. How would you like someone to call you a name that has nothing to do with your attributes, or the kind of God that you have  been to Israel, or to the other Nations. Well when you translate Elohim back to Aramaic, it is the Devil, the gods of the Babylonians before they conquered and destroyed the Pharonic Dynasty, that you will never see again – no one rely on Egypt for horses (arms in 2010). Reviewing all of the literature available for Elohim, and not Elokim. I can see that anti-Christ is working hard on the Church of God, to get you to bust hell wide open. During the time of Babylonian conquest, it probably was impossible to mean the One True God. Jesus said, he is here from the one sent him, and you don’t know Him. Therefore, we now know how easy it is to miss the opportunity to meet God when He created everything in the universe, but on a personal perspective while my ancestors were alienated from their homeland, yet again, just the minor spelling of His name is very important to the remnant that forged out of Babylonian conquest. Knowing that the land of the nation of Judah would from thence forward be a heavenly Kingdom, fulfilled again in the heavens, after the church is taken up into heaven.


Yet, you say that you know what you are talking about, as it pertains to another persons culture. As if you were there when Moses was giving the Torah. Moses said that he was talking to you this day, the people that are here and the people that are not here. So if you know that your ancestors were there on the mountain with Moses, then why is it that you can’t simply do a simple repentance and enjoy the holy days and festivals i.e., Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. I listen to alot of people talk and they will tell you that God is the baby Jesus. Jesus is the God of the Bible, as if the Father God has no identity or name in the bible. God wants you to sanctify His name, so we know that Jehovah has a name in the Bible. Many people get him mixed up with the kind of God he is for instance when he gave the children of Israel peace amongst their enemies and delivered them from the Midianites, now this is a time when crime was high and the law was ineffective – Jehovah Nissi (The God of Peace or the God of my peace). (Judges 6:24).


Although the true church, Church of God, has only one ordinance. I whole heartedly believe that the people who know what was going on in the wilderness, should partake of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah. By doing this you also perform a commandment of God, and you sanctify yourselves with a good and righetous deed. You sanctify yourself by following the commandments of God, not by struggling from persecution and destruction at the hands of your enemies. Yet I have tried so many times to study with people since repentance is the focus of observing the Festivals; being mindful of the mitzvots (following the commandments of the LORD Thy God will consecrate you to the LORD Thy God, that led my family out of Egypt and now you Elokim is my God, you alone are my Eternal God (Elokim). Nevertheless Jesus said if you strike the shepherd, then the sheep will scatter. (Zechariah 10:9-10Zechariah 13:7; Matthew 26:31). Do away with the stiffnecked behaviour; rolling eyes; and refusing to repent this is the evil spirit that sits over the church until Christ returns. I hear stories that God (Jesus) died so that person could be priest over me, and that I fellowship with anyone because my spirituality is unsettled as if it against the law to be impartial and listen these are sick rantings about the Lord Jesus. Yet your tents are afflicted and I can write all the grants for AIDS, but we can never work together; because you know that there is a difference that God made between me and you in Exodus 3. (Habakuk 3:7). Know this that if you take notice to what they will do to one another then you can imagine what they will do to you. A place with uncurable Egyptian boils and 50 to 100 kids walking the streets with nothing to do so that I can see it. Yet you do not serve your community and there is no medium between art and industry or opinion, God forbid a medium to the Gospel.


This message is to the person that knows more about the bible than I do, who knows more about the King James version being that their family did not write the bible, nor were they a people whom the Torah was given. Therefore, your doctrine is falliable, you write that the first occurences of Elohim is in Genesis 1:1 and is translated in the King James Version (KJV) as “God.” It appears in the Old Testament about 2,500 times. It describes God’s greatness and glory; it displays God’s power and Sovereignity. If Elohim is translated into God, then why is that you can not and will not observe Rosh Hashanah 2010. (Exodus 22:28). The answer is that you have an unforgiving heart to blaspheme the name of God. (Romans 2:24 Isaiah 52:5; Ezek. 36:22). Elokim gave Moses the Torah, and commanded us to observe Rosh Hashanah and all the other Holy Festivals as a commandment to sanctify ourselves to our God. God wrote the Torah.

Finally, I want you to think about your own personal name that you give God. As you know I personally call him my LORD God. Since it is impossible to argue that Jesus is not the only begotten son of God, the Jewish Messiah that fulfilled every prophecy in the bible regarding a light to the two-and-half billion gentiles and still growing in numbers – who could possibly argue with Jesus. I don’t have to know God because I know Jesus, and trust me in my forty-five years of living as Kurt Carr sings; the presence of the Lord is here. I have always thought I knew God and each day, I see my God in everything. I learn more about myself, a person that he created. God created all things, but I have to stop worrying about how the story ends and let God have his way. (DeWayne Woods). If you let God have his ways then you will begin to walk in his ways. (James Fortune & FIYA). Don’t let God be something that competes with the mark of the beast, such as money, luxuries, and idols made of wood and stone etc. Most importantly don’t lie and say that you translated the King James Version bible to mean Elohim because that is such a lie. If you know more about King James then I do then you should have celebrated Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkoth, and most of all you should have supported someone making Alliyah to Jersualem, instead of trying to divide it and take it for a gentile possession, you did in the past and you will do it again.
When you begin to walk in his ways, then you will know that when God led the people through the Red Sea, and out of Egypt, the house of Bondage. He revealed his name as Elokim. I have to laugh at people who call God the name Elohim; because secretly I call God, lovely one, honey bun, my everything, Mr. I love you today and always, and even that moving Spirit (ruach). For many people, the closest they will come to God, is Jesus and that is by hearing the words that He wanted the people to hear. I thank Jesus because he has made me a better person and by reading the original Hebrew text, I am beginning to understand the error of my ways, and how it is easy to get out of the spiritual walk. Jesus affirms that I am healed and that one day all of my issues will be redeemed. No matter how bad a situation is I know that one day, I will be personally redeemed, and that rejection is just the enemies’ way of persecuting me because of my faith. Jesus also cried about the Temple, because he taught in the temple, and he was rejected in Jerusalem. Yet, Jesus never ordained a Christian to take Jerusalem from the chosen people. Again, when you don’t know the name of God, then you will actually embrace idolatry and in your mind, you will kill people and establish your dominion over the place that God put his name, over Jerusalem.
Right now Sukkoth (The Feast of Tabernacles) is being celebrated and many people declare that they were there in the desert listening to Moses speaks to the people and the alien that sojourned. If you were there then you are required to celebrate Sukkoth. The Law of Moses specifically commands that you shall never sell the land, therefore we know that Jerusalem cannot be divided, your inheritance can not be allotted off to the nations. Judah will be a heavenly nation because people do not know God. This is what Jesus was saying when he went before Pontius Pilate after meeting with the Priest Ananias; he knew that Judah would never a nation to stand amongst the United States of America in 2010. (John 18:35-38) He knew that the gentiles would want to lord over you as it pertains to religion as well as the city of Jerusalem. Even in the book of Revelations the prophet John also prophecies that the gentiles will trodden over Jerusalem, right to the square of King Solomon’s Temple, a threshing floor of God’s glory, the first sacrifice performed by Adam and Abraham and so many major spiritual events for this God put his name, a name that cannot be associated with the God of Israel, as even being similar to a idol god. It hurts me that people really believe that they know what was going on because Jesus (fulfilled every biblical prophecy as it relates to the light of the Gentiles over 2 ½ billion and counting) was there that you know what was going on during the Exodus of Egypt and the forty years then you should be teaching the gospel: and that is to gather the people and to ensure that Jerusalem will remain the city of King David forever as promised to Abraham (Genesis 13:14-15; and Genesis 17:8).  Now some of you who are anti-Christ will say, the bible is not fulfilled until “I” say it is fulfilled.
As Jesus taught about the parable of the weeds is when no matter how much good seed you bear, the enemy can come and ensnare you. The last thing you want to do is being caught in idolatry, trying to overtake the city of Jerusalem as a city for a gentile, when the Messiah returns. Your good deeds are seeds that you plant when you preach the gospel. I don’t want to hear about being a Western Evangelist; the gospel is healing, resurrecting, cleansing, and gathering the tribes to return to the city of Jerusalem. (Matthew 13:24-30), and casting out demons. God has already made a decree that Jerusalem shall belong to the Jews, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel). (Jeremiah 31:35-37). However if you don’t choose to serve God, and call on Him by His Name, then you will never know that God’s name is forever on Jerusalem, and the king of the city is David, and thanks to the Lord Jesus there shall never be a man lacking on the throne (Leviticus 25:23-24; Deuteronomy 16:2; Deuteronomy 26:2). Go ahead if you think that you can get pass this tare, and you will find a more fitting Messiah than let me know and I will be glad to evangelize the Messiah with you, as long as your Messiah doesn’t create a stumbling block for the Name of God.(Psalm 83:3-8).

Daniel 11:36-45:  The King Who Exalts Himself

36 “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. 38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. 39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him.

2nd Chronicles 36:15-23The Fall of Jerusalem
 15 The LORD, the God of their fathers, sent word to them through his messengers again and again, because he had pity on his people and on his dwelling place. 16 But they mocked God’s messengers, despised his words and scoffed at his prophets until the wrath of the LORD was aroused against his people and there was no remedy. 17 He brought up against them the king of the Babylonians, [g] who killed their young men with the sword in the sanctuary, and spared neither young man nor young woman, old man or aged. God handed all of them over to Nebuchadnezzar. 18 He carried to Babylon all the articles from the temple of God, both large and small, and the treasures of the LORD’s temple and the treasures of the king and his officials. 19 They set fire to God’s temple and broke down the wall of Jerusalem; they burned all the palaces and destroyed everything of value there.
 20 He carried into exile to Babylon the remnant, who escaped from the sword, and they became servants to him and his sons until the kingdom of Persia came to power. 21 The land enjoyed its Sabbath rests; all the time of its desolation it rested, until the seventy years were completed in fulfillment of the word of the LORD spoken by Jeremiah.
 22 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the LORD spoken by Jeremiah, the LORD moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and to put it in writing:
 23 “This is what Cyrus king of Persia says:
       ” ‘The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Anyone of his people among you—may the LORD his God be with him, and let him go up.’ “
Ezekiel 37:26-28 – One nation under one King26 I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever. 27 My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people. 28 Then the nations will know that I the LORD make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever.'”

Jeremiah 31:35-37A new covenant
 35 This is what the LORD says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—the LORD Almighty is his name:
 36 “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,” declares the LORD, “will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me.”

Luke 19:41-43 Jesus Triumphal Entry
41As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it (42) and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. (43)The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. (44)They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.”

Is this your excuse for failing to observe Sukkot,
Yom Kippur and
Rosh Hashanah as

Sukkot starts Wednesday evening, September 22nd. Sukkot means “booths.” During the 40 years of wandering in the desert we lived in Sukkot. We are commanded in the Torah regarding this holiday, “You shall dwell in booths for seven days … so that your generations will know that I caused the Children of Israel to dwell in booths when I took them out of Egypt, I am the Lord your God” (Leviticus 23:42-43). We are commanded to make our Sukkah our main dwelling place – to eat, sleep, learn Torah and spend our time there. If one would suffer from being in a Sukkah – i.e. from rain or snow – or heat and humidity – he is freed from the obligation to dwell there. We make, however, every effort to at least eat in the Sukkah – especially the first night.

• Start on sukkah
It is customary to begin working on — or at least planning — the construction of the sukkah immediately after Yom Kippur. Indeed, The Midrash (Vayikra Rabbah 30:7) describes the four days between Yom Kippur and Sukkot as a time when the Jewish people are “preoccupied with mitzvot… this one is occupied with his sukkah, this one is occupied with his lulav…”


• “G-d’s Name”
According to an old Chassidic tradition — mentioned in the writings of the Baal Shem Tov — the day after Yom Kippur is referred to as “G-d’s Name.” (The Baal Shem Tov explains that each of the various divine names describe G-d’s involvement in a specific “world” or realm of reality, but the designation “G-d’s Name” — without reference to any particular name — connotes a divine effluence that transcends all realms and particulars. On Yom Kippur, we access and reveal the very essence of our soul, which is one with the very essence of G-d; thus the day after Yom Kippur carries the designation “G-d’s Name.”)
