The Song Of Moses

song of MosesThe song of Moses was written when he was 120 years old.

And he said to them: “I am one hundred and twenty years old today. I can no longer go out and come in. Also Yehovah has said to me, ‘You shall not cross over this Jordan.’ (Deu 31:2)

He has been with Israel’s seed (a.k.a. and perversely known as “the children of Israel”) for 40 years; he knows them and he knew their fathers also. But these spiritually born men have never really been Yehovah’s servants.

Now Moses called all Israel and said to them: “You have seen all that Yehovah did before your eyes in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land—the great trials which your eyes have seen, the signs, and those great wonders. Yet Yehovah has not given you a heart to perceive and eyes to see and ears to hear, to this very day. (Deu 29:2-4)

We, Israel’s seed, are getting ready to take possession of our lands; but Yehovah and Moses both know that we will forsake Him and serve other elohim (the lawmakers and the judges of the nations that are all around us).

The song of Moses was given to Israel’s seed and to their seed (all Ezrach men) to be a testimony against themselves (those who left Yehovah to serve other elohim) in the latter days.

“Now therefore, write this song of Moses for yourselves, and teach it to Israel’s seed; put it in their mouths, that this song of Moses may be a witness for Me against Israel’s seed. When I have brought them to the land flowing with milk and honey, of which I swore to their fathers, and they have eaten and filled themselves and grown fat, then they will turn to other gods and serve them; and they will provoke Me and break My covenant. Then it shall be, when many evils and troubles have come upon them, that this song of Moses will testify against them as a witness; for it will not be forgotten in the mouths of their descendants [זרעו, zera – seed], for I know the inclination of their behavior today, even before I have brought them to the land of which I swore to give them.” Therefore Moses wrote this song of Moses the same day, and taught it to Israel’s seed. (Deu 31:19-22)

As I said, this song of Moses is given to Israel’s seed (people like me, who have voluntarily left the kingdom of their birth, joined themselves to Yehovah and His other called-out servants and then at Passover have become His Ezrach seed and heir) and it is to be sung to those who have gone and served other elohim. These men are harlots, and the song of Moses tells their story and their latter end.

“For they [harlot Israel] are a nation [גוי, Goy] void of counsel, nor is there any understanding in them. Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! (Deu 32:28-29)

Those who dwell on earth live a very pragmatic lifestyle, they live for today and do not consider their latter end. But Yehovah’s servants see the big picture and they know that what Yehovah says, He will do.

Therefore thus says my master, Yehovah: “Behold, My servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry; Behold, My servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty; Behold, My servants shall rejoice, but you shall be ashamed. Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and wail for grief of spirit. You shall leave your name as a curse to My chosen; For my master, Yehovah will slay you, And call His servants by another name. (Isa 65:13-15)

Guilt Of Bloodshed

In Deuteronomy 19 Yehovah instructs Israel’s seed (erroneously and otherwise known as “the children of Israel”) to separate 3 cities (all Levitical cities) and later, once we had taken the land of the Canaanites, to add 3 more; lest the avenger of blood should overtake the man-slayer (הרצח, ha-ra-tsach), who was not deserving of death, and kill him.

“Now if Yehovah, thy Elohim enlarges thy territory, as He swore to thy fathers, and gives thee the land which He promised to give to thy fathers, and if thou keep all these commandments and do them, which I command thee today, to love Yehovah, thy Elohim and to walk always in His ways, then thou shall add three more cities for thyself besides these three, lest innocent blood be shed in the midst of thy land which Yehovah, thy Elohim is giving thee as an inheritance, and thus guilt of bloodshed [דמים, da-mim is the plural form of דם, dam or blood] be upon thee. (Deu 19:9-10)

This word דמים, da-mim is translated in many ways; “guilt of bloodshed,” “blood-guiltiness.” “the guilt of shedding blood,” “blood,” and others; but the one I like best is, “all the blood.”

Yehovah feels strongly about the innocent blood of a man or an animal that is killed improperly, and blood is a subject that He talks about over 300 times in in Torah (Genesis through Deuteronomy). Anyone who sheds blood of man or beast (be-hem-ah) inappropriately will be cut off from Israel. He says the life is in the blood.

Guilt of bloodshedBut you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood [דם. Surely for your blood [דם], for your lives, I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I will require the life of man. “Whoever sheds the man’s blood [דם], by a man his blood [דם] shall be shed; For in the image of Elohim He made the man. (Gen 9:4-6)

Moreover you shall not eat any blood [דם] in any of your dwellings, whether of bird or beast. Whoever eats any blood, that person shall be cut off from his people.’ ” (Lev 7:26-27)

“Whatever man of the house of Israel who kills an ox or lamb or goat in the camp, or who kills it outside the camp, and does not bring it to the door of the tabernacle of meeting to offer an offering to Yehovah before the tabernacle of Yehovah, the guilt of bloodshed [דם, blood] is imputed to that man. Blood [דם] he has shed; and that man shall be cut off from among his people. (Lev 17:3-4)

If a man lies with a woman during her sickness and uncovers her nakedness, he has exposed her flow, and she has uncovered the flow of her blood [דם]. Both of them shall be cut off from their people. (Lev 20:18)

Killing a man, slaughtering a clean animal inappropriately, and even eating a clean animal that has been slaughtered by another inappropriately [this is what “meat sacrificed to idols” is all about“] has eternal consequences; and if you have eaten any meat, with the USDA label on it, you too are guilty of “all the blood.” Being cut off from among Yehovah’s people means there is no life after death. But hey, most men today are not Yehovah’s people anyway; they have never left the kingdom of their birth and made themselves wholly Yehovah’s man; they have committed this sin and would be cut off from among Yehovah’s people even if they were his people. So eat, drink and be merry; but know, that payment will be due.

Yehovah commanded each Ezrach man concerning how to lead those within his gates saying,

Thou shalt not רצח [ra-tsach]; Thou shall not murder! (Exo 20:13)

If a man is killed within thy gates / thy land, and his blood goes unredeemed; that blood will Continue reading Guilt Of Bloodshed

Zimri And Cozbi

Israel has just finish defeating the two powerful kings of the Amorites, Sihon and Og of Bashan; they were the dreaded enemies of both Moab and Midian. Now that we were able to destroy the Amorites so easily, Moab and Midian both fear that they will be the next to fall to us.

Instead of fighting us directly, they have put together a plan to undermine Israel’s son’s relationship with Yehovah. After a summer campaign on the east side of the Jordan we have gathered at Shittim on the plain of Moab to spend the winter before we start a new campaign on the west side of the Jordan in the spring.

It appears to me that some of Israel (remember they are the ezrach men) have become complacent and perhaps willing to covenant with our enemies instead of destroying them. Some of us began to take their daughters, eat their meat which has not been slaughtered to Yehovah and, worst of all, bowed down and served other elohim (lawmakers and judges) besides Yehovah.

And he, Israel abode in Shittim, and the people became wanton for Moab’s  daughters [בנות, benot], and they [Moab] called to the people to slaughter [לזבחי, zeh-vach] to their elohim (lawmakers and judges), and they did eat; and the people bowed down to their elohim. (Num 25:2-3)

Incidentally, eating meat slaughtered to other elohim is what we do when we buy beef, lamb or goat at the grocery store.

Big, big mistake! Yehovah (40 years before) said, Continue reading Zimri And Cozbi

Killing Of Wild Game In Torah

After writing the first 8 articles on how Yehovah’s son, the Ezrach is to properly slaughter, eat and dispose of any animals eaten from the herd (cattle) or flock (sheep and goats) as commanded in Leviticus 3, 7 and 17; it seems appropriate that I also address the killing of wild game (deer, elk, moose, etc.) and birds (chicken, turkey, etc.) as described in Leviticus 17 as well.

Most folks, those who have any exposure to the Hebrew roots of the faith which all of Yehovah’s great men have lived and taught, are aware of what clean 4-footed animals and clean birds are available for His people to eat. But very few are aware of how they are to be killed, and by whom. Yehovah’s instructions in Leviticus 17 are brief.

wild game and birds“And any man [eesh, eesh] of Israel’s seed [they are the Ezrach in Yehovah’s kingdom], or the Stranger [the Ger] who dwells among you, who hunts and catches any animal or bird that may be eaten, he shall pour out its blood and cover it with dust; for it is the life of all flesh. Its blood sustains its life. Therefore I said to Israel’s seed, ‘You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off.’ (Lev 17:13-14)

Again, as it was with the beef, sheep and goat, it is the “man man” or “any man” who kills the animals; not a woman. But, in this case wild 4-footed animals (as opposed to domestic animals which are slaughtered to Yehovah by only His son) and birds can be killed by both the Ezrach and the Ger who dwells with them.

Notice: There is no provision here for a Gentile to kill meat and sell this (already been killed) meat to the Ezrach or to the Ger.

There are two things that troubled me about the meat I was previously buying from the market. The first, and most obvious is, I did not kill it! But the second issue for me requires a bit longer explanation.

Meat sacrificed to idols – 8 (an altar to Yehovah)

We saw last time that meat slaughtered to “se-i-rim” or “idols” is the opposite of meat slaughtered to Yehovah.

When I learn new instructions from my Father’s word, I always do my best to conform my life to my new understandings. And when I finally understood what Leviticus chapters 3, 7, 17 were saying about Yehovah’s clean meats, and especially the meat that comes from the herd (cattle) and the flock (sheep and goats), I had to make some major changes to my diet. I saw that there are many ways that a man can get kicked out of Israel for treating this meat improperly. And, the only meat we eat (from the herd or from the flock) is meat that we kill properly.

But currently we have no tabernacle, no temple and no priesthood, so what does a man do if he wants to eat beef, lamb or goat?

When we came out of Egypt the first time, we did not have a tabernacle for almost a year. So, I had to ask myself, what did we do then? What did Enoch, Methuselah and all the righteous men in the antediluvian world do? What did Noah, Shem, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob do?
