THE WORD OF GOD
torah
By Dr. and Mrs. Elias E. Hidalgo

THE WORD OF GOD

BOTH, THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT WERE GIVEN 'BY INSPIRATION OF GOD' (II TIMOTHY 3: 16), AS 'HOLY MEN OF GOD SPAKE AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT' (II PETER 1: 21). IT'S WONDERFUL TO KNOW THAT THE SIXTY-SIX BOOKS OF HOLY SCRIPTURES THAT MAKE UP THE HOLY BIBLE ARE NOT ONLY INSPIRED, BUT ARE VERY INSPIRATIONAL AND GIVE GOOD INSIGHT AS TO THINGS OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE.

FOR EXAMPLE: HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED AS TO EVENTS AND SITUATIONS THAT SEEMINGLY ARE INEXPLICABLE AND DEFY OUR UNDERSTANDING? WELL, ONE THING IS FOR SURE, AND THAT IS, THAT ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD, 'ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE THE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE' (ROMANS 8: 28).

THE WORD OF GOD IS THE KEY TO OUR UNDERSTANDING, 'HIS PURPOSES' AS RECORDED BY THE PROPHET ISAIAH WHERE THE LORD TELLS US, 'FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS MY WAYS, SAITH THE LORD. FOR AS THE HEAVENS ARE HIGHER THAN THE EARTH, SO ARE MY WAYS HIGHER THAN YOUR WAYS, AND MY THOUGHTS THAN YOUR THOUGHTS' (ISAIAH 55: 9). AND, ... 'SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOETH FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH; IT SHALL NOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE, AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHERETO I SENT IT' (ISAIAH 55: 11).

SO, HOW DO WE FIND OUT WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW IN REFERENCE TO HAPPENINGS THAT ARE ONLY KNOWN TO GOD?

FIRST OF ALL, ONE NEEDS TO BEGIN BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTION GIVEN TO US BY THE ALMIGHTY GOD, AND THAT IS THAT, 'THE SECRET THINGS BELONG UNTO THE LORD OUR GOD: BUT THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE REVEALED BELONG UNTO US AND TO OUR CHILDREN FOR EVER, THAT WE MAY DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW' (DEUTERONOMY 29: 29).

DID YOU NOTICE THAT THE ALMIGHTY GOD HAS 'SECRETS' THAT ARE ONLY KNOWN TO HIMSELF? ON THE OTHER HAND, WE ARE TOLD VERY CLEARLY THAT THERE ARE THINGS REVEALED, THEREFORE, IT IS TO THIS ISSUE THAT WE WANT TO ADDRESS OUR ATTENTION.

THE WITNESS OF GOD

THE ALMIGHTY GOD CHOSE TO USE '40' DIFFERENT HUMAN AUTHORS OVER A PERIOD OF 1,500 YEARS TO PEN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (REMEMBER: THESE INDIVIDUALS WERE INSPIRED BY GOD HIMSELF). IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THEY (THE FORTY AUTHORS) HAD NO ABILITY IN TIME OR SPACE TO HAVE ANY FORM OF COLLABORATION BETWEEN THEMSELVES AND YET THEY ALL SEEM TO ARRIVE AT THE SAME PROPOSITION, AND THAT IS, THAT MAN IS INHERENTLY SINFUL, AND NEEDS TO BE REDEEMED BY A 'BLOOD SACRIFICE'. 'FOR THE LIFE OF THE FLESH IS IN THE BLOOD: AND I HAVE GIVEN IT TO YOU UPON THE ALTAR TO MAKE AN ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SOULS: FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKETH AN ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL' (LEVITICUS 17: 11).

AFTER THE WRITINGS OF MOSES (AROUND 1450 YEARS BEFORE THE BIRTH OF CHRIST), WE FIND THE FOLLOWING INSPIRED WORDS WRITTEN NEAR THE END OF THE FIRST CENTURY AFTER THE BIRTH OF CHRIST, RECORDED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, 'AND WITHOUT SHEDDING OF BLOOD IS NO REMISSION' (HEBREWS 9: 22B).

WE ARE ALSO REMINDED OF THIS BEAUTIFUL TEXT ...'HOW MUCH MORE SHALL THE BLOOD OF CHRIST, WHO THROUGH THE ETERNAL SPIRIT, OFFERED HIMSELF WITHOUT SPOT TO GOD, PURGE YOUR CONSCIENCE FROM DEAD WORKS TO SERVE THE LIVING GOD?' (HEBREWS 9: 14).

'CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES; AND THAT HE WAS BURIED, AND THAT HE ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES' (I CORINTHIANS 15: 4).

THERE IT IS, THE CULMINATION OF THE MARVELOUS WITNESS OF GOD THROUGH OUR MESSIAH, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, GRANTING US ETERNAL LIFE, BY HIS GRACE THROUGH FAITH IN HIM (EPHESIANS 2: 8-10).

THE WARNING OF GOD

WE FIND WITHIN THE PAGES OF HOLY WRIT MANY WARNINGS THAT CARRY WITH THEM BLESSINGS AND OR CURSINGS, SUCH AS, 'AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, IF THOU SHALT HEARKEN DILIGENTLY UNTO THE VOICE OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO OBSERVE AND TO DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY, THAT THE LORD THY GOD WILL SET THEE ON HIGH ABOVE ALL NATIONS OF THE EARTH; AND ALL THESE BLESSINGS SHALL COME ON THEE,' (DEUTERONOMY 28: 1-2). ON THE OTHER HAND, WE READ, 'BUT IT SHALL COME TO PASS, IF THOU WILT NOT HEARKEN UNTO THE VOICE OF THE LORD THY GOD, TO OBSERVE TO DO ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS AND HIS STATUTES WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY; THAT ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON THEE, AND OVERTAKE THEE.' (DEUTERONOMY 28: 15).

SOUNDS LIKE A VERY FAIR WARNING. DO YOU THINK THAT IT IS WITHIN THE HEART OF A HUMAN BEING TO BE OBEDIENT TO THE LORD?

JEREMIAH 17: 9-10, REMINDS US THAT, 'THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS, AND DESPERATELY WICKED: WHO CAN KNOW IT? I THE LORD SEARCH THE HEART, I TRY THE REINS, EVEN TO GIVE EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS, AND ACCORDING TO THE FRUIT OF HIS DOINGS.'

NOW, WE UNDERSTAND AND KNOW WHY CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS SAY AND DO THE THINGS THEY DO AS THEY HURT OTHERS EVEN TO THE EXTENT OF BRINGING HARM, DANGER AND EVEN DEATH, SUCH AS WE WITNESSED ON SEPTEMBER THE 11TH, 2001 THAT HAS BROUGHT SUCH DEVASTATION TO OUR BELOVED NATION.

THERE ARE MANY WARNINGS FOUND IN SCRIPTURE, ONE OF WHICH IS NOTEWORTHY OF OUR ATTENTION AND IT HAS TO DO WITH THE NATION AND PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

REMEMBER, THAT ISRAEL AS A NATION HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND STILL IS THE MEANS BY WHICH THE LORD GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH SHOWS FORTH HIS BLESSINGS AND CURSINGS TO OTHER NATIONS (SEE: GENESIS 12: 3).

THERE IS YET A TIME COMING WHEN ALL NATIONS (SEE: ZECHARIAH 14) SHALL GATHER AGAINST JERUSALEM (ISRAEL) TO BATTLE. COULD THIS BE THROUGH A UNITED FRONT REPRESENTING 'ALL NATIONS'?

'FOR THUS SAITH THE LORD; WE HAVE HEARD A VOICE OF TREMBLING, OF FEAR, AND NOT OF PEACE. ASK YE NOW, AND SEE WHETHER A MAN DOTH TRAVAIL WITH CHILD? WHEREFORE DO I SEE EVERY MAN WITH HIS HANDS ON HIS LOINS, AS A WOMAN IN TRAVAIL, AND ALL FACES ARE TURNED INTO PALENESS? ALAS! FOR THAT DAY IS GREAT, SO THAT NONE IS LIKE IT: IT IS EVEN THE TIME OF JACOB'S (ISRAEL'S) TROUBLE; BUT HE SHALL BE SAVED OUT OF IT' (JEREMIAH 30: 5-7).

THE ABOVE EVENT HAS NOT YET TAKEN PLACE, BUT, CAN WE NOT SEE THE STAGE BEING SET FOR SUCH A CATACLYSMIC OCCURRENCE?

YES, THE 'HATERS' OF THE TRUE GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, (WE ARE NOT SPEAKING ABOUT ALLAH, BUDDHA NOR ANY OTHER FORM OF MANMADE DEITY), BUT RATHER, THE GOD OF ISRAEL MANIFESTED IN THE PERSON OF OUR MESSIAH, Y'SHUA (JESUS) CHRIST, THE LORD (SEE: PSALM CHAPTER TWO), THESE 'HATERS' WILL GATHER THEMSELVES TOGETHER FROM THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH TO DESTROY AND ANNIHILATE THE NATION AND PEOPLE OF ISRAEL. BUT, NOTICE IN OUR TEXT THAT, 'HE (ISRAEL) SHALL BE 'SAVED' OUT OF IT'.

THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR FAITHFULNESS AND POWER TO CARRY OUT YOUR COUNSEL. 'BEHOLD, HE THAT KEEPETH ISRAEL SHALL NEITHER SLUMBER NOR SLEEP' (PSALM 121: 4). ALSO, WE READ IN ZECHARIAH 2: 8, 'FOR HE THAT TOUCHETH YOU (ISRAEL) TOUCHETH THE APPLE OF HIS (THE LORD GOD) EYE'.

YES, AS TIME GOES ON THINGS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP WORSE AND WORSE BECAUSE OF MAN'S INHUMANITY TO MAN, BUT ESPECIALLY TOWARDS GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE (THE JEWS), WHICH MUST COME TO PASS IN ORDER FOR THE MESSIAH TO REVEAL HIMSELF IN FULL SPLENDOR AND GLORY. FOR HE SAID, 'FOR I AM THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT; THEREFORE YE SONS OF JACOB ARE NOT (TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY) CONSUMED' (MALACHI 3: 6).

DO YOU NEED TO WORRY? WELL, IF YOU ARE NOT A CHILD OF GOD THROUGH FAITH (SEE: JOHN 1: 12), IN THE MESSIAH OF ISRAEL, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, THEN, YES YOU NEED TO WORRY. BUT THERE IS HOPE AND HERE IS THE ANSWER, YOU NEED TO FIRST OF ALL, MAKE YOUR PEACE WITH GOD AND ASK HIM TO FORGIVE YOU OF ALL YOUR SINS AND HE WILL ACCEPT YOU AS HIS CHILD THROUGH THE MERITORIOUS DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION OF Y'SHUA (JESUS) OUR LORD.

ON THE OTHER HAND, IF YOU ARE ALREADY A CHILD OF GRACE AND FAITH, THEN, 'LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH' (NEARER THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE) (LUKE 21: 28).

AS WE SEE THE MENACING CLOUDS IN THE HORIZON, REMEMBER, 'FOR ALL THESE THINGS MUST COME TO PASS, BUT THE END IS NOT YET' (MATTHEW 24: 6). BUT RATHER, HERE IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO RIGHT NOW, '... BE YE ALSO READY; FOR IN SUCH AN HOUR AS YE THINK NOT THE SON OF MAN (JESUS OUR LORD) COMETH'. (MATTHEW 24: 44).

HELP US LORD, AS WE TRAVEL THROUGH THIS LIFE, NOT KNOWING WHAT WILL COME NEXT, BUT WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS ARE UNDER YOUR CONTROL AND DOMINION. 'THOU ART WORTHY. O LORD, TO RECEIVE GLORY AND HONOUR AND POWER: AND FOR THY PLEASURE THEY ARE AND WERE CREATED'. (REVELATION 4: 11). AMEN.
