Thoughts on the Day of Atonement, Anti-Semitism, and the Coming Blood Moon

  1. I think Mendel may also have made the error of predicting his version of a messiah (Menachem Mendel Schneerson) would certainly arrive before the end of September on account of the alleged vision/prophecy of the Alter Rebbe (the founder of Chabad) – in which, he says, it was revealed to him that Messiah would arrive in the year 5775 (the year 5775 ended in the middle of September).

  2. Question- Why is it that if a Jewish person by blood line believes that Jesus is the Messiah that person is no longer Jewish? But, If a Jewish person by blood believes that Schneerson a Jewish rabbi is the Messiah that person remains Jewish?

    Both Schneerson, and Jesus were Jewish, and great teachers. Why does one disqualify the DNA?

    Also, why can one be Jewish by DNA but be a Buddist a (Buju) but, one can not be Christian and Jewish?

  3. I knew a man who I thought was a Jewish Christian. He was raised Jewish, and became a born again Christian who was a part of the local church and like everyone else, has some type of background either having been connected by some religion, or some having not been connected to Christ, at all, but became born again, but all of us have had some type of background. He went back to live with his Jewish family. It may have been for health reasons.

    We might refer to someone from the United Kingdom as English, or someone from Ireland as Irish, but what do we call people from Israel? Israelish? We
    call them Jewish. I haven’t heard Israelite used as a modern term, that is of people from modern Israel.

    Just the way it is, I guess.

  4. About the death of the righteous atoning, I have heard about the power of forgiveness, that it releases a healing power, a just reason for God to act on the sufferer’s behalf for the benefit of those who have harmed or injured him, that they might be brought out of their sins.

  5. I too went to synagogue (Conservative) when a child on Long Island and I too had a Bar Mitzvah where I had no idea of what I was saying. I had so studied the song I was taught that in my 50’s, through a Google search where I just spelled out the first verse (which I remember fully) phonetically, I found out that I had recited Isaiah 51:12 – ?
    “I, I am he who comforts you;
    who are you that you are afraid of man who dies,
    of the son of man who is made like grass… ”
    That hit me like a ton of bricks.
    I wish I would have know that then – I had a rough childhood with lots of harassment and I could have used that message then.

  6. I am not sure I was following this.

    These rabbis were slaughtered by Muslims obeying their texts and their prophet. I understand it’s human nature to want to find spiritual meaning to a horrible tragedy like this. But saying that it was righteous people dying for the unrighteous makes it sound like this was a good thing, or that God made this happen for that purpose.

    This view takes the focus off Islam, which is where it always must be! Islam teaches genocidal hatred of the Jews. That is why this attack happened. That is why attacks are happening on a daily basis in Israel, by these genocidal Muslims.

    Until Israel acknowledges this and does something about it, people will continue to be slaughtered as these poor rabbis were.

  7. Mo, there are many aspects to this, many facets to the will of God, some are not easily understood. I suppose as we do look at one side of things, we do for a time take our eyes of another side of things.
