I hope everyone had a great Shabbat and wonderful fellowship. As we approach closer to the feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread, many of our thoughts turn to concepts of freedom and liberation. Me and the children are cleaning all around the place, getting rid of old toys, garments and what have you. We are also preparing donations to charity, and giving away things of which we no longer have any use. This we do every year at this time, and while we tend to feel like we cannot let go of certain things ( we have become attached to them) we find that when we are able to do so, we feel liberated.
I say this to make the point about being free. To me, the Passover season is a good time to reflect upon the ways we personally keep ourselves in chains and enslaved, which brings me to a discussion about hate among our people. This too, works to keep us in perpetual bondage. Hate holds us back.
There are many groups in our midst teaching our people hatred of the Caucasian people. We frequently hear, "Whites are devils!" The main point we should remember, I think, is that our purpose as Israelites is to be set-apart which is accomplished by being Torah-observant. Are we consistently discriminated against? Absolutely. This has been the case throughout Hebrew history. Our people have been catching hell for thousands of years, and Caucasians have been at the helm of that movement to this very day. That is an irrefutable fact. However, we cannot lose sight and do as they (The Nations of The World) do. Their ways are not our ways. The Torah teaches us this. The key is our set-apartness.
The reality is, you can be a born Hebrew but if you are not following Torah, you are in transgression and are living against The Most High and will be held accountable. Being Torah-observant must be the focus of the Hebrew Israelite and that is what we must cling to. Torah is what we are to be teaching our children. They learn best by example and they do what they see us doing.
"Do not loathe an Edomite, for he is your brother. Do not loathe a Mitsrite, because you were a stranger in his land." ~Debarim 23:7
"And YHWH spoke to Mosheh saying, "Speak to the Children of Yisra'el, and say to them, I am YHWH your Elohim. Do not do as they do in the land of Mitsrayim, where you dwelt. And do not do as they do in the land of Kena'an, where I am bringing you, and do not walk in their laws. Do my right-rulings and guard my laws, to walk in them. I am YHWH your Elohim."~Wayyrika 18:1, The Scriptures Bible
