Think about this for more than a minute. “Moses then described the experience of receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai.
[Moses told the Jewish people], “G‑d spoke these words . . . with a great voice, not pausing [at all].” Deuteronomy 5:19
One meaning of the expression “not pausing” is that the voice of G‑d at Mount Sinai continued – and continues – to be revealed in the prophecies and teachings of the prophets and sages of each generation. The fact that these prophecies and teachings were not explicitly articulated when the Torah was first given is simply because the world and the Jewish people did not yet require them. They were nonetheless implicit in the original revelation of the Torah.1 Likutei Sichot, vol. 4, pp. 1092–1098.
Think about this for more than a minute. This paradox will smack you once or twice upside the head. It did me more than once in my life.
The thing I thought that would set me free booze and drugs and all its ramifications of promises freedom, stardom, hot chicks and a great wild life in the end destroyed my life.
And the thing I thought that would bind me up living a G-dly life, doing mitzvahs, observing the Sabbath, studying Torah, doing acts of kindness generosity and love looked like a prison to me where I didn’t want to be stuck like my parents however in the end was the very thing that would set me free to live a full and abundant life.
How wrong was I.
Here is the real kicker!
Yes, I made the conscious choice to follow that life however G-d never abandoned me. HaShem kept talking to me. HE kept asking me to come back home. And when I did G-d welcomed me back with open arms and total forgiveness of my sins.
All I had to do was become teachable, admit the exact nature of my wrongs and most important of all surrender my will and life to the G-d of my forefathers Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov and then I become a follower of Yeshua the Jewish Messiah- The Moshiach the anointed one.
This is where real total freedom lives and is very much alive.
This is a central part of Jewish life. G-d gave us practical commandments about life and Torah. This is very important.
Without this guide we would be lost.
Judaism is not only about loving G-d or fearing G-d. It is not only about feeling Jewish. It is not only about feeling. It is about doing Judaism.
By doing Jewish-Mitzvahs we bring about the revelation of G-d into this world
This is why we Jews are scattered all over the world, so we can be used as divine sparks to liberate the revelation of G-d into this world in order to transform the world into a dwelling place for G-d.
This is one of the reasons why Yeshua came to this earth so we Jews would to set us free, so we can really become the divine sparks G-d want us to be, so we can truly be the light unto the nations.
We become lost and trapped in a dead religion that was going nowhere fast. G-d heard the cries of our prophets and thus our prayers were answered.
We shouted these words: “Barukh ata HaShem Eloheinu, Melekh ha’olam.”
G-d came to earth in the human form of Yeshua to set us Jews free and thus became the Moshiach- anointed one for us Jews and the rest of the world.
“A sharp mind will find a truth for itself.
A humble spirit will find a truth higher than itself.
Truth is not the property of intellectuals, but of those who know how to escape their own selves.”
By Tzvi Freeman
The source for our three daily prayers morning, afternoon and evening are referenced in the Torah in three separate places.
Avraham is first. This is the morning prayer. “And Abraham arose early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord.” Genesis, 19:27
Yitz’chak is the second prayer. This is the afternoon prayer.” And Isaac went forth to pray in the field towards evening, and he lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, camels were approaching.” Genesis 24:63
Ya’akov is the third prayer. The evening prayer. “And [Jacob] encountered the place and lodged there because the sun had set, and he took some of the stones of the place and placed [them] at his head, and he lay down in that place.” Genesis 28:11
This is foundation of who we Jews are. This is the basis of our relationship with G-d. These are the men that G-d made a covenant with.
To fill yourself with wisdom, you must proceed with wisdom.
To fill yourself with wisdom, you must empty yourself of all wise thoughts.
To receive blessings from Above, you must do all those things that draw blessings.
To receive anything from Above, you must be still and quiet.
Likkutei Sichot, vol. 34, pp. 24–31.
At every turn, He engineers yet another opportunity for you to heal His world, to bring out its beauty, to reveal His innermost wisdom hidden within.
To unveil, perhaps with just a single act, the world of His innermost desire.
