Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

Remember 9 11 and to be vigilant against evil in all its forms

9-11, Let no one forget that the terror that strikes at the heart of man comes from the evil in the hearts of men and that we, God’s chosen people, must always be vigilant against evil in all its forms.

Understanding Judges 21 verses10 through 24

12 tribes of Israel

12 tribes of Israel

Basically the sins of man can not be attributed to God.

21.10-11 ‘And the people sent there twelve eleph men of the most valiant, and commanded them saying, “Go and smite the inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead with the edge of the sword, with the women and the little ones. And this is the thing you will do. You will utterly destroy every male, and every woman who has lain with a man.” ’

Twelve picked units of fighting men were despatched to Jabesh-gilead with a view to carrying out The Ban. All there were to be slain except for young virgins. The hypocrisy of the situation is clear. Why should the children die and the virgins be spared? Simply for man’s convenience to get him out of a tight corner. We note that they did not seek Yahweh’s guidance on this. They knew He would not approve.

But the carrying out of the same procedure on Jabesh-gilead as on the Benjaminites demonstrates how seriously this campaign and the stain of the actions of the men of Gibeah were taken. It was seen as a sacred crusade to eradicate deep sin in the tribal confederacy. And those who would not partake were considered to be tainted with the sin of the men of Gibeah. They were traitors to the covenant, and the penalty for that was death, for they had failed to recognise and bow down to the holiness of Yahweh. (This was in this case their view, not God’s. But it was genuine nonetheless.).

21.12 ‘And they found among the inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead four hundred young virgins who had not known man by lying with him. And they brought them to the camp, to Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan.’

The Ban was carried out and four hundred virgins spared who ‘had not lain with a man’. Or so it was presumably said by their loved ones before they died, to save their lives. And these were brought to the camp at Shiloh where The Tabernacle usually was. The Ark would now also have returned there, for Shiloh was the regular central sanctuary. A sacred ceremony would soon follow with the six hundred men of Benjamin in renewal of the covenant.

21.13-14. ‘And the whole congregation sent and spoke to the children of Benjamin who were in the Rock of Rimmon, and proclaimed peace to them. And Benjamin returned at that time, and they gave them the women whom they had saved alive of the women of Jabesh-gilead. And yet so there were not sufficient for them.’

We note the lack of mention of the names of central leaders throughout the whole narrative. It may have been in order to stress that the whole of Israel was involved, or it may have been because there was no man prominent enough to be so mentioned. The period of the Judges was one in the main lacking in leadership, although at times there were local exceptions.

‘Proclaimed peace to them.’ The war was over. No further reparation would be required. They could come out safely and rejoin the tribal confederacy.

‘And Benjamin returned at that time.’ Not just returned to their camp but returned to the confederacy. They became once more a brother. And the four hundred virgins were supplied to them for the producing of children to rebuild the tribe. But four hundred was not enough for there were six hundred men.

21.15 ‘And the people repented themselves for Benjamin, because Yahweh had made a breach in the tribes of Israel.’

All that was done was in the end thought of as done by Yahweh, for He was the God of the covenant and of the tribal confederacy. Thus He was seen as over all that they did, even when He might not have approved of it. It was His law and His holiness that had caused the actions that had brought the breach. But it was the people who had to repent and change their minds so as to allow Benjamin back into the confederacy. It was not God Who had banned them.

21.16 ‘Then the elders of the congregation said, ‘How shall we do for wives for those who remain seeing the women are destroyed out of Benjamin?’

Compare verse 7. The Ban had (in their view, but some must have survived) resulted in the killing off of all Benjaminite women. Thus the problem was how to obtain wives for the two hundred still without them. This is the first mention of the elders, as rulers of the tribes as opposed to military chiefs (20.2), although they must have been present at all major decisions made. Things were returning to normal.

21.17 ‘And they said, ‘There must be an inheritance for those who have escaped of Benjamin, so that a tribe is not blotted out of Israel.’

The feeling was strong. To lose a tribe would be like losing a limb. The inheritance here was children not land. There was plenty of free land in Benjaminite territory.

21.18 ‘However, we may not give them wives of our daughters.’ For the children of Israel had sworn saying, ‘Cursed is he who gives a wife to Benjamin.’

The latter phrase was probably literally part of the wording of the covenant made at Mizpah. Blessings and cursings regularly accompanied covenants. The repetition of the former (verses 1, 7) was to remind the hearers of the narrative when it was read, and may also indicate their continual repetition to themselves because of the headache they had caused themselves.

21.19 ‘And they said, ‘Look there is a feast of Yahweh from year to year in Shiloh’, which is on the north of Bethel, on the east side of the highway that goes up from Bethel to Shechem, and on the South of Lebonah .’

The connection with vineyards suggests that this was the feast of Tabernacles. All Israel would gather to the central sanctuary for the feast to celebrate the harvest and it would provide opportunity for their plan to work. The position of Shiloh was carefully described. It was an important site to Israel, and it would seem that the Tabernacle had again returned there.

21.20-21 ‘And they commanded the children of Benjamin, saying, ‘Go and lie in wait in the vineyards. And watch, and behold if the daughters of Shiloh come out to dance in the dances, then you come out of the vineyards and you catch every man his wife of the daughters of Shiloh and go to the land of Benjamin.’

There is no mention of God’s approval to this plan which would no doubt have been sadly lacking. It demonstrates that leaders of peoples do not change over millenniums. They consider that in times of emergency they can behave in ways that decent men would decry. It is difficult to think of words to describe leaders who recommend abduction by force of innocent girls. But they had forced themselves into a corner and now they were trying to find a way out of it.

The problem was that it had to be done in such a way as to be evident that no one had given his daughter to the Benjaminites. But if the elders were not doing that, what were they doing? They were fathers of their tribes. It was a legal fiddle.

The plan was simple. The Benjaminites were now present at the feast having been restored to the covenant and the tribal confederacy. And every year at the feast of Tabernacles the girls of Shiloh would go out for the celebrations in the vineyards where they would dance in the dances. There they would be only partially protected. What could happen with all the tribes of Israel gathered there at a feast of Yahweh? And no one would take much notice of ‘lovers’ seizing their girlfriends and carrying them off. But once the Benjaminites had succeeded they had to immediately leave the feast and make for Benjaminite territory just over the border. It was abduction by force without any regard for the girls or their families.

21.22 ‘And it shall be, when their fathers and their brothers come to complain angrily to us, that we will say to them, ‘Grant them to us as a gift. For we did not take for each man his wife in battle, nor did you give them to them. Or else you would now be guilty’.’

Clearly once news of the kidnappings got out the fathers and brothers of the girls would come to the elders for them to deal with the situation. Then the elders would put in their plea, speaking on behalf of the Benjaminites. They would point out that the girls had not been taken in battle (that would have rendered the Benjaminites guilty again of fighting the confederacy). Nor had they been given freely (that would have put the blame on the fathers who gave their daughters.) Thus no covenant had been broken. And they would ask that the relatives give their daughters, as a gift to them, the elders for the sake of preserving the tribe of Benjamin in the tribal confederacy. (The language may be typical Eastern understating. The ‘gift’ might have included some form of recompense).

21.23a ‘And the children of Benjamin did so, and took wives for themselves according to their number, of those who danced, whom they carried off.’

The plan was carried out and worked successfully. The girls were legally kidnapped, each man choosing a wife for himself out of those available. Then they escaped into the territory of the tribe of Benjamin.

21.23b ‘And they went and returned to their inheritance, and rebuilt the cities and dwelt in them.’

Benjamin was still their inheritance so that these men had much land to choose between them. They would now be wealthy and leaders of their people.

But some have cavilled at the idea of a strong tribe of Benjamin arising so speedily from so few. However, that is to misunderstand the situation. Refugees who had fled would return in droves, families in which someone had married a Benjaminite women in the past and who lived elsewhere would come to claim their wives’, or mothers’, or grandmothers’ family inheritance, and become Benjaminite in return. Others would see the large tracts of land still available and they too would be willing to be adopted into Benjamin, or claim descent, in return for grants of land, for many records had been destroyed in the destruction that had taken place, and if the men were suitable not too many questions would be asked. Good fighting men would be welcomed and would soon be absorbed into Benjamin. Every man of ambition but little wealth would see it as a great opportunity. So until the lands and cities were reoccupied people would flood in. And their families would all soon proudly claim their descent from Benjamin.

From the beginning the tribes had always been fluid, especially since the absorption of the mixed multitude under Moses (Exodus 12.38). That process would now go on. Their problem would not be sufficient applicants, but deciding between them. An almost ‘empty’ land was a huge attraction.

The weakness of Benjamin for a time might explain why they continually could not expel the Jebusites from Jerusalem, and such a civil war might explain the weakness of Israel in the face of the enemies described in the first part of the book. It may also partially explain why Benjaminites ceased to be so predominantly left-handed (Judges 3.15; 20.16 contrast 1 Chronicles 12.2).

21.24 ‘And the children of Israel left there at that time, every man to his tribe and every man to his family, and they went out from there every man to his inheritance.’

The repetition is typical of ancient literature and Hebrew parallelism. Their task finished, and Benjamin on the way to restoration, they could return to their homes (see 20.8). They went to their tribe, to whom their loyalty was due, and through whom God’s future blessings would come on them as promised to Abraham; to their family (clan) to whom they owed specific allegiance and from whom they too would be ministered justice; and to their inheritance in Israel, which was their reward for being in the covenant. Having fulfilled God’s work in their own way they were able to proceed with life in a covenant relationship with God, satisfied that the stain of the folly had been removed from them.

A way of living from God

Amos 5:21-24

(21) ” I hate, I despise your feast days,
And I do not savor your sacred assemblies.
(22) Though you offer Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings,
I will not accept them,
Nor will I regard your fattened peace offerings.
(23) Take away from Me the noise of your songs,
For I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments.
(24) But let justice run down like water,
And righteousness like a mighty stream.

Israel’s religion was going nowhere. The people were not righteous, moral, or just in their dealings with one another, so their playing at religion, though sincere, was despicable to God.

In the list of sacrifices in verse 22, the sin offering is not mentioned, suggesting that the Israelites felt they had done no sin that required forgiveness. This shows that they were not in contact with God; they had no relationship with Him. If they had, they would have been aware where they had fallen short, and they could have repented.

Amos includes three other offerings that the Israelites gave but God would not accept. Knowing what they represent gives us insight into how the people were falling short in their spiritual lives.

The burnt offering teaches total devotion to the Creator. It was completely burned up on the altar, typifying the offerer being completely devoted in service to God. This offering corresponds to the first four commandments, which show love and devotion toward God.

Similarly, the grain offering, also called the cereal offering, meal offering, or meat offering, teaches total dedication and service to man. It was offered in conjunction with the burnt offering. The grain offering typifies the last six commandments, which regulate our relationships and love toward our fellow man.

The peace offering represents one’s fellowship upward to God and outward to man. It was primarily given in thanks for God’s blessing. When this offering was made, God, the priest, the offerer, and his family and friends shared in a common meal and fellowship, as all these parties ate part of the sacrificed animal.

But from God’s reaction to their offerings, it is clear that the people of ancient Israel were not devoted to God or to their fellow man. Nor were they in true fellowship with either God or man, and therefore they could not see their sins. They did not see the holiness of God and compare themselves to it. If they had, they would have seen that they needed to make changes in their lives, but in judging themselves solely against other men—an unwise thing to do (II Corinthians 10:12)—they felt no need for repentance.

They did not understand what God really wanted of them. They may have appeased their own consciences with their church attendance, hymn singing, and sacrifices, but they went home and continued to oppress and cheat and lie. True religion is

1) A relationship with God (Matthew 22:37). Without a relationship with Him, we cannot know Him or understand His purpose for us.

2) Submission and obedience to God as our part of the relationship (James 4:7-8). In offering to make the covenant with the children of Israel (Exodus 20-24), He proposed to them. They accepted their obligation—to obey Him—but they were unfaithful in fulfilling it. As the Israel of God (Galatians 6:16) and the future Bride of Christ (Revelation 19:7-9), the church must not fail as ancient Israel did.

3) Real love for God’s truth (II Thessalonians 2:10). Israel neither loved nor sought God’s truth.

4) Moral integrity (I Peter 3:8-12). Living in righteousness and holiness shows love toward God and man.

5) Social responsibility (James 1:27). Israel, as a nation of this world, had a responsibility to ensure that their care of their fellow Israelites was acceptable in God’s eyes. The church, a spiritual organism, is not of this world, and as a body, has no responsibility at this time to change society—only ourselves. We must take care of our brethren within the church now, and we will have our chance to help this world in God’s Kingdom.

These five points will not “buy” us into the presence of God, but rather they are five proofs that we follow true religion. Remember Jacob’s dream. God chooses us and meets us at the foot of the ladder, making a difference in our lives. He gives us a way of life to follow, and we pledge to follow it. Thus, true religion is not a way to God but a way of living from God.

By their fruits they are known – Christianity vs. Islam

By their fruits they are known.

People who preserve life, truth and creation are children of the Creator.
People who destroy life, truth and creation are children of the destroyer.

Jesus frequently taught his followers and disciples they could recognize the nature of a person by the things they do, the things they say, and from the depth of their heart the mouth speaks.  When we see people doing the things the devil and his horde do then we know those people call the devil their father, even if they do it by calling him by another name.
 

We know the desires of the devil and his horde.  We know they hate God the Creator.  We know they hate those things that God favors, and that includes God’s children.  We know the demons love to do certain things as well.  We know the devil and his demons love to lie, deceive, kill, rape, pillage, molest little girls and little boys and much more.  These are things we find among the people of Islam and especially “radical Islam.”  These spirits are born of the Koran and Islam.  The spirits of demons dwell in these people and some of these people express the desires of the demons openly.  This is why the so called “radicals of Islam” do the things they do without any regard for anyone and then say that it is the will of Allah, and every immoral, disgraceful and sinful thing they do is justified in their own minds.

The devil hates God’s children.  He can’t reach the Son and he can’t reach God but he can send out his army in the name of jihad (holy war) to kill God’s children who remain on the earth.  This is the reason why Islam says it is not only acceptable but desirable to “kill the infidels.”  If Allah commands the people to do the very same things that the devil commands his people to do then it does not take a brilliant scholar to know the devil and Allah are, if not one in the same, in league with each other.  People who are easily deceived will join Islam.  People who are poorly informed will be deceived by Islam.  The greatest numbers of people who are joining Islam today are the uneducated and those who are unaware of what Islam and Allah really are.

In the face of the truth of such things, when Islam is exposed the people who have been indoctrinated into the lie want to tear their cloths, throw dirt in the air and kill the favored ones of God, the Jews, the Christians, etc. because they are expressing the feelings and motivations of the spirits that reside within them.  These spirits are demons who were cast down from the heavens by Michael and his angel army.  All of these things were prophesied 1000’s of years ago.  Even Enoch wrote of such things and about the battle between the children of light and the children of darkness.

Even the Koran clearly says that salvation and prophet-hood was given to the children of Israel, the Jews.  And yet who among them asks how it was that Mohammed, a perverted Arab and descendent of Ishmael, who was cursed by God could ever be considered an equal or greater to Moses?  Truth is He didn’t.

Compare Moses to Mohammed.  Moses was highly educated, spoke several languages, could read and write.  Mohammed couldn’t read or write his entire life.  Moses preformed countless miracles.  Mohammed didn’t perform one miracle.  Moses was hunted by the Pharaoh as a baby.  Mohammed wasn’t. Other than the depths of Mohammed’s perversions murderous tendencies, child molesting and hatred for the Jews and chosen people of God Mohammed was nothing special at all.  Even Allah complained about Mohammed and Allah is a demon.

Compare Jesus with Moses.  Well educated.  Trained in a craft.  Hunted by the king as a baby for the purpose of killing him.  Jesus fits the description of who God was talking about when he said he would raise up someone like Moses from the brethren, not from the Arabs but from the descendents of Israel.

 

 

The dragon in anger can not attack the woman or her son, so he sends a flood from his mouth after the children of the woman who are still on the earth.  Islamic radicals come to the gates of Israel and throw rocks and shout obscenities trying to provoke a fight.  Why do they do this?  Because their souls are in torment, just as the demons are who were kicked from the heavens by the angels of the One True God.  It’s all about the fruits of those spirits.  Islamic radicals express the feelings and intent of the demons who possess them.

Muslims are very quick to proclaim in their anger toward the truth and those who speak the truth that we do not know what we are talking about.  Because if we do know the truth they are in some serious trouble.  Let me say this… They are in some serious trouble because the things I have said so far are just the beginning of where their religion went wrong.  Please understand this, that Islam is growing in leaps and bounds, among who?  Mostly among the uneducated, uninformed people of the world.  People who wouldn’t go to the effort to dig for the truth to find it.  If they could read and understand the Koran itself they could understand that something went seriously wrong with their religion.

 

The Koran 

 

“O children of Israel! Remember My Favour which I bestowed upon you and that I preferred you to Alalamin (mankind).”  (Surate Al-Baqarah 2:47) 

“And indeed We gave the children of Israel the scripture, and the understanding of the scripture and His laws, and the prophethood, and provided them with good things, and preferred them above the Alamin (all mankind).”  (Surat Al-Jathiyah)

“And (remember) when Moses said to his people: ‘Oh my people, remember the favour of Allah to you when He made prophets among you, made you kings and gave you what He had not given to any other among the mankind.  O my people” Enter the Holy land (Palestine) which Allah has assigned to you…’ ”  (Surat Al-Maida 5:20-21 HK)

 

In each case we see it was the children of Israel who were declared to be the ones the prophethood came to and through and for who salvation was acclaimed.  Even in the Koran these things were proclaimed, not for the Arabs and not for Mohammed but for the children of Israel.  Then how in the world did Mohammed end up being declared the last true prophet of God?  If you do all your research you will learn that it was not God who proclaimed Mohammed a prophet, but it was humans, friends of Mohammed who did this.

Remember the old testament was not written for the descendents of Ishmael or Arabs, it was God’s words and dealings directed at the children of Israel, the Jews.  When He said from your brethren he was speaking of the children of Israel. Mohammed was never eligible for prophethood.

Islam says that Abraham and Ishmael went to Mecca and built a temple so that many faiths and people could bring idols to that place and worship their pagan gods.  Yet we know Abraham would not have done this.  He was the one of God who had such faith in God that he would kill his only son as a sacrifice to God.  He would not have built an altar so that people could worship demons and idols.  No evidence or other documentation has ever been found that would indicate that Abraham ever went to Mecca.  There is evidence and documentation that one of Mohammed’s own relatives built the alter in Mecca.

It was said the Angel Michael came to Mohammed while in a cave, yet that account doesn’t match up with any other appearance of Michael.  In each case where Michael came to see someone the very first thing he said was “Do not be afraid.”  Then he would identify himself.  But the “thing” that came to Mohammed grabbed him, squeezed the breath out of him and commanded him to read, but Mohammed could not read.  He was frightened to death.  The “THING” had not identified itself and Mohammed said “I fear that I have been possessed.”  Meaning he knew he had been possessed by a demon.  But when he told his account to someone else they proclaimed that it must have been the angel Michael.  From that moment on Mohammed told the story that it had been Michael and not a demon that had attacked him while in the cave.  It is also written that demon known as Jinn were always near and with Mohammed.  It is very likely it was one of these demon who attacked and possessed him.  It was one of these demons who inspired him to write and to do the things he did to defy the God who had cast the demons/fallen angels down from the heavens.
