Solomon King of Israel – Marriage or Celibacy

Israel is today a democracy.  In the times of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem it was a theocracy with a King. There were no elections like in Israel today. The King was chosen by a prophet. The first King was King Saul appointed by the prophet Samuel. The son-in-law of Saul and warrior in his army was David who became the successor to King Saul. The son of King David was Solomon who became King at the age of 12 years old and reigned for forty years.

Random Thought About War – It’s No Longer an Option

According to scientific thought, our planet is now 4.5 billion years of age. Since the first humans began to roam the earth millions of years ago, their first instinct was to find food and defend themselves– violently when necessary. We are still functioning in this primitive, violent way these many millions of years later, not taking into account that the world is no longer the same and human beings are no longer cave dwellers.

The Palestinians boycotted the conference but even Trump’s Arab allies saw the necessity of the two-state solution. Kushner was overwhelmed by the response he got. Every country that he invited showed up, and he had a very big crowd. There were a lot of senior business leaders from throughout the world.

Building and Finding Peace

No one in the world can deny the importance of peace except for crazy fanatics.  There are various types of peace, all are important.  Peace in the home is one type of peace which is important for the whole family.  To have peace in home also requires livelihood and national security.

Last week July 4  Vladimir Putin visited Pope Francis at Vatican City. Russia, the largest nation in the world, visited the smallest.

The World We Live In – Technology is Not Bringing Us Together

Today is July 7, 2019 and the world we live in is in complete disarray. Real is not real. Fake is in. Petty has replaced common sense along with common decency. We have a crook in the oval office; and not a good one may I add.

Everything revolves around social media likes and comments. The world is at a point where doing something “out of the kindness of your heart” has to be documented for a later release. It seems as if love has lost the ongoing battle to vanity.

Unrest Around the World – A Country by Country Look

Today following the world news can be seen in a world at unrest.  In these countries especially is apparent World Unrest:

The Messiah of Freedom

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov writes in his most foremost work Likutei Maharon, “Each and every righteous saint is in the likeness of the Messiah.”

The Messiah of Freedom, the Messiah of Song, the Messiah of Peace are all from the same source.  They are all one and connected to God. The Messiah is by definition a man, a human being.  Like all people he comes into the world which is temporary with two maternal parents.  The life of the Messiah is temporary seventy years, until 120 years according to the wishes of God. 

The Goal of Education

There are three steps in the development of the soul of a man which begins as a fetus in the womb of the mother. These three steps are childhood, adolescent, and adulthood.  This applies to every human being. Educators emphasize the importance of childhood as a foundation for further development.  Education begins when the child opens his eyes.  The education of the baby is not only with words but with love and care.  When the baby already develops understanding begins the education of fear of God and fear of punishment. The education of love continues throughout childhood and is even more important than the education of fear of God, fear of punishment.

Coming Half Way – Two State Solution in the Middle East

Most of the problems of the world can be solved through compromise.  Compromise is not simple.

Compromise begins with two sides in conflict.  National compromise requires the guarantee of two nations which are in conflict to insure their security. In the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians each side must first be required to guarantee the other side’s security. To accomplish this task of peace in Israel requires two sides which are strongly united to become two nations separate and united.  To make peace between two nations you first need national unity.

A Prayer for Peace

The world is in turmoil. The threat of war is becoming real. Tensions in Venezuela between Madura and Guerra have created tension between United States and Russia two of the greatest nuclear powers in the world.  North Korea refuses to subdue before USA and continues to develop its nuclear capacity. Tensions in the Middle East are rising over oil interests in Libya. Saudi is applying pressure on the government of Libya in the same way it is pressuring the world accepted government in Yemen.  Sanctions on Iran from America have made tensions between China a nuclear power who depends on Iran for oil and America.  Iran is also protected by Russia one of the clients of Iran oil.  Russia is also behind the ruling government in Libya.

An End to Religious Violence and Hatred

Christendom, Islam, Zionism are three parts of Religious nationalism which can only be received together in peace through freedom of religion which doesn’t accept violent acts of religious terrorism. Freedom and justice can tolerate hatred when it is confined in the four walls of religion but not when it goes outside. The humanitarian will not accept violence in the name of God.  The humanitarian believes in freedom.  He also believes in peace. God cannot tolerate building a Golden Calf desiring only for material pleasures or a Tower of Babel nationalism without religion like the Las Vegas and the California discotheque shootings.

The Secret of Peace and Unity

The Hebrew Alphabet is filled with ancient secrets. In the second letter of the Hebrew Alphabet the letter ב Beit is the secret of peace and unity.  This secret is in the form of the letter ב Beit.

Understanding Mathew 10: 34-36 War and Peace

Jesus said in Mathew 10:34-36, Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter in law against her mother in law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. In other places in scripture Jesus is described as a man of peace which seems to contradict this passage.

Peace Between Christianity, Islam, and Judaism; A Way for Everyone

The name of God peace Shalom is the most important revelation of God in the world. It is difficult to believe when you look at the religious conflicts which plague the world everyday. In the Middle East is the political conflict between Israel and the Arabs, Muslim – Jewish conflict,  Muslim Shiites conflict with the Sunni, Catholics conflict with Protestant, Judaism clashes with Christianity, Islam clashes with Christianity, Hindu with Muslim. What is the source of these conflicts from a Biblical eye?

In order to answer this question it is important first to separate religion and politics; political conflicts from religious conflicts.  Politics all the time interfere with peace.  Politics is defined by Wikipedia as the process of making decisions by members of a group. Groups conflicts exist in their interests and within groups when there are conflicting interests.  The goal of politics is to make peace like the goal of religion.  Whereas politics is connected to group interaction religion is divided into group and individual.  Religion has a place for the individual and for the group. 

Holocaust Lesson for Mankind

Six million Jews were slaughtered in the Holocaust by the Fascist Nazi Regime of Hitler and over forty million human beings.  According to Wikipedia Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and control of industry and commerce. Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete and they believe in a complete mobilization society under a totalitarian one party state. Such a state is led by a strong leader a dictator and a martial government composed of members of his governing party to forge national unity and maintain a stable orderly society. Fascism rejects assertions that violence is automatically negative in nature and views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means that can achieve national rejuvenation. German Fascism was also racial.  Hitler claimed that the German people the Aryan race were supreme. The Holocaust came to teach a lesson to Jews and to mankind.

In the history of the world there have been many dictators who have used their power like Hitler.  Hitler may be considered the worst of these evil leaders. In the history of the world there have been political and religious racists that used the type of idealism used by Hitler for the sake of National Unity. There are still movements in the world using this type of racism for the sake of national unity.  There are two major types of governments which are dictatorship and democratic.

On The Pittsburgh Massacre

There are many reasons to hate Jews and Muslims for people living in a Free World and who love freedom because Judaism and Muslim religions are against freedom.  Even Orthodox Christianity or Protestantism are also against freedom even though Jesus their God was the champion for freedom.  In all religions there is racism.  Judaism was the first of these religions and made a Jewish religious state in an age when the whole world was filled with paganism and lawlessness.  There wasn’t in those days another choice for the leaders of the Jewish people other than to make a dictatorship with a King.  All the other Pagan nations living in the world at that time were dictatorships with a King . The Jewish people under the leadership of Moses and Joshua made also a dictatorship with a King but the nation of Israel was governed according to justice the law of God which influenced other nations in the Modern World to adopt laws not to kill, not to steal. not to commit adultery people are considered innocent until proven guilty.  However Jewish law did not include in it freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of speech like in democracy.  The nation had to protect their people from the evil influences of the pagan cultures around them.
