Why Are Things So Bad?

Have you ever wondered why things have gotten so bad on this planet? At the time of this writing, President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader, Kim Jong-Un are bantering back and forth about a button on their desk. We have many Rohingya Muslims who have been suffering from a possible genocide attack in their home country, and we have many refugees from Syria who have been displaced and are suffering.  We have many people in our home countries here in Canada and the United States who are suffering from addictions, bankruptcy, disease, sex trafficking, human trafficking, organ harvesting, prostitution, sexual perversion, and, if the truth be told, there are many other curses that many of us are living. The question begs to be asked, why? Why are things so desperate for us? Why is there so much suffering? I really don’t believe that these issues are limited to non-believers or people who express no affiliation with God. I think those in Churches, Mosques and Synagogues are suffering greatly as well. But why? If believers are the salt of the earth, why are we suffering so much? Many of us work in dead end jobs, have little or no savings for the future, we are broke, hungry, tired and depressed. It seems like so many are making money from us. Big pharma, the medical society, the prison system, the religious systems, it seems like everyone wants our money, yet few, if any want to help us.

The question remains then, why? In this post I am going to do my best to explain why I think this world is spiralling downwards and unless something happens very soon, we will bring this planet and its people to a place where we can no longer exist.

First, let me say that I love my God very much. I refer to him as the ‘Unknown God’ as spoken of in the book of Acts. What do I mean by an unknown god? What I am about to explain is that neither Christians, Jews, or Muslims follow the true God. They do not know him, hence that is why I call him the unknown God. If you don’t know someone and their ways, how can you say you follow them?

Let’s look at the Jews, since they were descendants of the people who were first entrusted with the Commandments of God. God gave them his instructions from through his servant Moses. God foretold the Hebrews that they would eventually turn their backs on him and desert his precious and Holy Commandments. Because of their disobedience, ten of the twelve tribes were lost, leaving only Judah and Benjamin. These two tribes assimilated and are what make up the present day Jewish people in Israel and other parts of the world.

These people struggle with many things their forefathers struggled with at the time of Messiah’s appearing. They are heavily inundated with non-working, man-made commandments which were added to their belief system, along with a myriad of traditions. The sad reality is that most Jews identify more with the man-made commandments and traditions than their actual following of God’s commands. They have added so much to God’s word in the form of their commands which aren’t commands at all, but burdensome rules that make it hard to have a true relationship with God. So, this is the Jews, a people who are aloof from God’s Holy Commandments and instead follow the commands of the sages. The Jews call the Book of Instructions, the Torah. Based on their behavior, they don’t have the Torah, just a whole bunch of thoughts and erroneous beliefs based on man made notions and ideologies. There is no way that the Jewish people could ever lead a person into a deep and personal relationship with God, because they don’t know God, or his Torah.

The next people to address are the Christians. Christianity is a religion that was solemnized by the Roman Emperor, Constantine. From him we get the Sabbath day changed from Saturday to Sunday, the omission of the dietary laws, and the institution of Christmas and Easter which are two pagan holidays. The messiah the Romans promulgated had no Hebrew heritage although he was a Jew born of two Jewish parents, Miriam and Yosef. The Romans stripped him of his Jewish heritage by saying he advocated the change of the Sabbath day, the abolishment of the dietary laws, the doctrine of the trinity, Christmas and Easter, and whole host of other pagan and ungodly beliefs.

Much like the Jews added unholy commandments to God’s word, by adding traditions and rituals that have nothing to do with God’s Holy Commandments, Christians changed God’s Holy and Appointed Times, to pagan, man-made holidays, they said it’s OK to eat whatever you want, that God is a trinity, and in later years advocated that the Book of Instructions is no longer valid, as their messiah nailed it to the cross. The person they will tell you who stands for these changes and beliefs is their savior, Jesus.  

Do you see it? The Jews don’t have the true Torah and the Christians don’t have the true Messiah. The enemy has used religion to polarize both people groups and has rendered them powerless by sending both groups a powerful delusion. What is the delusion? Jews have a false Torah and Christians worship a false messiah.  

That is the reason why this world is spiralling down to anarchy and chaos. People have forgotten about God’s Holy Commandments and they have forsaken the Hebrew/Jewish Messiah, Yeshua. (Yeshua is the Messiah’s Hebrew name which means ‘Salvation’ in English.)

Didn’t God say a few things about this issue in the Gospel of John Chapter one verse one, In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. Who or what is that word? The word is comprised of the Commandments God taught us through Moses. They are the words that God said he would write on our hearts as part of the New Covenant. The Book of Instructions or Law was never done away with. Jesus nailed the law of sin and death to the cross, because he bore our sins and if we follow him and obey his Commandments, we are no longer under law but under grace. Grace here is God’s ability through the blood of Messiah to forgive our transgression of his Holy Laws.

The Gospel of John has another statement, the word became flesh and dwelt among us. Another scripture, He sent his word and healed them. This word is the Commandments from the Book of Instructions which are synonymous with the Messiah.  If you have the true Torah, you have the Messiah, if you have the true Messiah, you have the Torah. If you have a false Torah, you have a false messiah. If you have a false messiah, you have a false Torah.

This is my humble explanation of why this world is going to hell in a hand basket. We have no handle on God’s Book of Instructions, Torah and no handle on God’s Messiah, Yeshua. Both Jews and Christians have no idea what they do and why they do it. Tradition! Lies! Deceit! Manipulation! Control! These words are all associated with these two camps of non-working ideologies. If you belong to these institutions, you will never break free from the mire and muck associated with them. You will never attain a successful life in God. You will never come to know him in a personal and intimate way.

Satan owns Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Many people have said to me that if you accept Jesus you’ll go to Heaven. That too, is a lie or powerful delusion. How can you accept a pagan entity into your heart and believe that he will take you to be with the Father?

Father, wake us from our slumber, restore our minds to sanity, heal our broken hearts and give us a passion for Messiah Yeshua who is your Torah that became flesh.
