When the thief meets the Judge

“No reason to get excited,” the thief he kindly spoke. “There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke. But you and I, we’ve been through that and this is not our fate. So let us not talk falsely, now. The hour is getting late.”                 (Bob Dylan, “All Along The Watchtower”, Dwarf Music © 1968, 1996) In …Read More

One day, one battle, one Lord, one name

  Matthew Miller (better known as Chasidic/reggae beatboxer/rapster Matisyahu) released an April 2008 recording called ‘One Day.’ Speaking about this monster hit Matisyahu said that “it is an anthem of hope with a big beat, the kind of song that makes you bob your head and open your heart at the same time.” The song expresses a confidence that God has put us on this earth for a reason and …Read More

Over the past week believers worldwide have called out to Jacob’s …Read More

The intelligence community uses the term ‘blowback’ to describe an analogous dynamic – the unintended consequences, unwanted side-effects or repercussions of a black operation that backfires. Replacement Theology (an anti-Semitic expression of Christian theology that raised its head in the 2nd Century …Read More

Robbing Jacob

One of the pillars of morality for the human race is found in Leviticus 19:11-12: “You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another. You shall not swear falsely by My name, so as to profane the name of your God; I am YHVH” (Leviticus 19:11-12). God connects robbery to dealing falsely and to lying to one another. Robbing Jacob in Genesis Most Christian sermons castigate Jacob as a thief …Read More
