THE LAW SHALL GO FORTH FROM ZION:





      "THE WORD THAT ISAIAH THE SON OF AMOZ SAW CONCERNING JUDAH AND JERUSALEM. AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LAST DAYS, THAT THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD'S HOUSE SHALL BE ESTABLISHED IN THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAINS, AND SHALL BE EXALTED ABOVE THE HILLS; AND ALL NATIONS SHALL FLOW UNTO IT. AND MANY PEOPLE SHALL GO AND SAY, "COME AND LET US GO UP TO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD, TO THE HOUSE OF THE GOD OF JACOB; AND HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS WAYS, AND WE WILL WALK IN HIS PATHS: FOR OUT OF ZION SHALL GO FORTH THE LAW, AND THE WORD OF THE LORD FROM JERUSALEM. AND HE SHALL JUDGE AMONG THE NATIONS, AND SHALL REBUKE MANY PEOPLE: AND THEY SHALL BEAT THEIR SWORDS (GUNS) INTO PLOWSHARES, AND THEIR SPEARS (ARTILLIARY) INTO PRUNINGHOOKS: NATION SHALL NOT LIFT UP SWORD AGAINST NATION, NEITHER SHALL THEY LEARN WAR ANYMORE." (Isaiah 2:1/4)

      The phrase that apparently confuses churchmen in America is "IN THE LAST DAYS." It is really easy to reconcile. The last days of what? Believers in America are concerned about the last days of this present Age when Tribulation is promised globally. Most are looking to escape the trouble in a rapture that is not in the Bible. They are looking for the rebuilding of the temple in the last days of this present Age, and the above stated prophecy seems to fit it.

      A more careful examination of the prophecy proves beyond any shadow of doubt that Isaiah is speaking of the Millenium Age. When the temple is rebuilt in Jerusalem, all nations will not flow unto it. The Arabian nations will not flow unto it. The Muslim nations will not flow unto it. The North Koreans will not flow unto it. The Chinese will not flow unto it. Isaiah is obviously not speaking of the temple wherein Antichrist will set up the abomination that makes it desolate. He is talking about the Millenium Age temple to be built on the same site. He is talking of the next Age where the Resurrected nations will all be believers in Jesus Christ (who the prophet refers to as the God of Jacob). Indeed, Christ will prove to be the God of Jacob when he returns with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob with him.

      Furthermore, Christ returns as God to conquer the earth and take up residence in the temple rebuilt for his thousand year reign. He will be accessible as a teacher from the temple in the thousand year reign. In the next temple to be built where the Mosque of Omar now rests, Christ will not be resident visibly.

      Thus, it is a Millenium Age prophecy when Resurrected people encourage one another saying: "COME, LET US GO UP TO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD, TO THE HOUSE OF THE GOD OF JACOB: AND HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS WAYS, AND WE WILL WALK IN HIS PATHS:" (Isaiah 2:3a)

      In this lifetime, the Lord reveals his ways to Saints but not to the Church. This is a difficult truth for proud churchmen in America to hear, nonetheless it is true. In Psalms we read: GOD "MADE KNOWN HIS WAYS UNTO MOSES (THE SAINT) HIS ACTS UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL." (Psalms 103:7) God's people in America like to call themselves Sons of God because they are adult males. Spiritually speaking however, they are children who have not yet grown up into Christ, the Son of God. Therefore the classification of most male believers here and throughout the world is CHILDREN OF GOD. In the Age to come, they will want to learn how to walk in the Lord's ways and will flock to the Lord for instruction in how to do so.

      (See also the extended context of the above stated Millenium prophecy to find out how Micah the prophet dealt with it in Micah 4:2.)

      Jeremiah the Prophet offers the reader a Millenium Age prophecy where he clearly tells us there will be "SACRIFICE CONTINUALLY." This is something the Israeli's of old understood, though it may seem odd to you. There is nothing to fear. The Lord will not invite you to sacrifice animals on his altars. The responsibility for doing so belongs forever to the Levite tribe. Neither will you have to learn the laws of Moses, though perhaps you might find the study of it fascinating once you complete this document. Judaism is peculiar to Israel. The Apostles made this clear when the door to salvation was opened to the Gentiles. Gentiles were informed that we were not under the law of Moses according to the Apostles:

      Saint James told the gathering of the Apostles in regard to whether the Gentiles would be required to live the law of Moses: (Ref. Acts 15:5) "WHEREFORE MY SENTENCE IS, THAT WE TROUBLE NOT THEM, WHICH FROM AMONG THE GENTILES ARE TURNED TO GOD: BUT THAT WE WRITE UNTO THEM, THAT THEY ABSTAIN FROM POLLUTIONS OF IDOLS, AND FROM FORNICATION, AND FROM THINGS STRANGLED, AND FROM BLOOD." (Acts 15:19/20) (See also 1 Corinthians 8:8/13)

      Now let's take a close look at the Millenium Age prophecy where Jeremiah tells us there will be "SACRIFICE CONTINUALLY" which means Israel will return to its former practices of Judaism.

      "BEHOLD, THE DAYS COME, SAITH THE LORD, THAT I WILL PERFORM THAT GOOD THING WHICH I HAVE PROMISED UNTO THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND TO THE HOUSE OF JUDAH. IN THOSE DAYS, AND AT THAT TIME, WILL I CAUSE THE BRANCH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TO GROW UP UNTO DAVID; AND HE SHALL EXECUTE JUDGMENT AND RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE LAND. IN THOSE DAYS SHALL JUDAH BE SAVED, AND JERUSALEM SHALL DWELL SAFELY AND THIS IS THE NAME WHEREWITH SHE SHALL BE CALLED, THE LORD OUR RIGHEOUSNESS. FOR THUS SAITH THE LORD; DAVID SHALL NEVER WANT (LACK) A MAN TO SIT UPON THE THRONE OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL; NEITHER SHALL THE PRIESTS THE LEVITES WANT (LACK) A MAN BEFORE ME TO OFFER BURNT OFFERINGS, AND TO KINDLE MEAT OFFERINGS, AND TO DO SACRIFICE CONTINUALLY." (Jeremiah 33:14/18)

      First of all, the reader should be take note that the prophecy is for the future. To determine when in the future, we identify Jesus, the Christ as the branch of righteousness to grow up unto David. That is a genealogical statement. Jesus was not yet born of Mary when Jeremiah wrote the prophecy. Search the Scriptures and you will find the Lord is referred to as THE SON OF DAVID. (Romans 1:3, Revelation 3:7, 5:5, 22:16, St. John 7:42, St. Matthew 1:1)

      It is Christ who shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In that day, David will be King of Israel and Jesus Christ will be King of kings over all the earth. Once you understand you are looking at a Millenium Age prophecy, it follows in the context of it that Judaism will be practiced again in Israel. They will "SACRIFICE CONTINUALLY" on their altars.

      Now, let's take a look at what Isaiah the Prophet has to say in Chapter sixty of his book: What you read in parenthesis are my comments regarding the verse, to help the reader see how it is clearly a Millenium Age prophecy.

Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. (This promise is to Israel. Christ shall glorify Israel upon his return which will be a surprise to the Gentile nations.)

Isaiah 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. (At this time, spiritual darkness exists upon the earth and in the people, but the Lord shall put his glory upon Israel as he establishes order in the beginning of his thousand year reign.)

Isaiah 60:3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. (The Resurrected of the Gentile nations will go to Jerusalem regularly to worship the Lord of glory, Christ Jesus.)

Isaiah 60:4 Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at [thy] side. ("thy sons shall come from far" is a reference to the final exodus of Israelites from all the world, returning to the land of Israel at the beginning of the thousand year reign of Christ.)

Isaiah 60:5 Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee. (Israel will be transformed as a nation. The Israelites of the Millenium Age will have a healthy fear of the Lord, and also by seeing the greatness of what God is doing; their faith shall be enlarged.)

Isaiah 60:6 The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the LORD. (Dromedaries are the faster moving camels. Mechanized vehicles will not be in use anymore. If God had wanted the earth filled with them, they would have been part of original creation. Worshipers of the Lord will bring gold and incense and their showing forth the praises of the LORD means their worship will be in his Spirit. For God provides the Spirit of worship.)

Isaiah 60:7 ALL THE FLOCKS OF KEDAR SHALL BE GATHERED TOGETHER UNTO THEE, THE RAMS OF NEBAIOTH SHALL MINISTER UNTO THEE: THEY SHALL COME UP WITH ACCEPTANCE ON MY ALTAR, AND I WILL GLORIFY THE HOUSE OF MY GLORY." (Once the reader understands this quote to be a Millenium Prophecy, verse seven clearly tells us animal sacrifices will be made on the Lord's altar in the temple which he shall glorify with his divine Presence.)

      Now, let us carefully look at Moses and particularly Aaron, keeping in mind that they are Levites; and are the heads of the Levite tribe of Priests who will minister the sacrifices in the Millenium temple:

PROMISES TO AARON:

Micah 4:2

      It's a good thing there are other promises to support the law going forth from Zion, so many are skeptical that the faith as Moses practiced it is now obsolete when quite the opposite is true. Look at it this way. Israel caused the Son of God to be crucified. By doing so, Israel became separated but not forsaken by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This separation allowed for THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES which will come to an end when Christ returns and re-establishes the house of Israel as the most powerful nation upon the earth. The natural or shall we say, supernatural thing will take place. Israel will return to her former practices of holiness. What would you expect them to do? From the Patriarchs to the prophets, observing the law produced results such as we have not seen except by faith through holy Scripture.

      The promises to Aaron are extensive. What you have before you in this sub-topic are the quotes from Numbers 18:1 through verse 32. The key to understanding that the following verses pertain to the Millenium Age is the use of the word "FOREVER" in verse eleven. What God is talking about to Aaron became "A STATUTE FOR EVER:" (Numbers 18:11) The involvement of Aaron in the sanctuary reveals his part in THE LAW GOING FORTH FROM ZION in the Millenium Age. Once you see Aaron's involvement in the future Temple to be rebuilt in Jerusalem at the beginning of the Millenium Age, you can imagine the role the Temple of God will play in the religion the LORD gave in such a peculiar way to Israel.

      The practice of the law was never given to the Gentiles except for a few minor points, so it really should be of little concern to you. It's not something you will have to learn or practice except where it is required of you by the Israelites. We know, for example, the nations will be required to observe THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES. So that prophecy will be provided after this one is concluded, so you can continue to improve your vision of what is to come.

      Now here is Chapter 18 of the book of Numbers where God spoke to Aaron and later in the chapter to Moses, and it was recorded. Let there be no confusion. What God said pertained to what Moses and Aaron did then as well as to what Moses and Aaron will do in the Millenium Age. God established them in their offices FOREVER.

      Normally, the thee's and thou's and thine's are changed in quoting the King James Authorized Version of 1611, but when quoting large volumes of texts, they remain. But certain words of interest have been capitalized to help you make note of them:

And the LORD said unto Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy father's house with thee shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary: and thou and thy sons with thee shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood.

Num 18:2 And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee [shall minister] before the tabernacle of witness.

Num 18:3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.

Num 18:4 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.

Num 18:5 And YOU SHALL KEEP THE CHARGE OF THE SANCTUARY, and the charge of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel.

Num 18:6 And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: to you [they are] given [as] a gift for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Num 18:7 Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priest's office for every thing of the altar, and within the vail; and ye shall serve: I have given your priest's office [unto you] as a service of gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

Num 18:8 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Behold, I also have given thee the charge of mine heave offerings of all the hallowed things of the children of Israel; unto thee have I given them by reason of the anointing, and to thy sons, by an ordinance for ever.

Num 18:9 This shall be thine of the most holy things, [reserved] from the fire: every oblation of theirs, every meat offering of theirs, and every sin offering of theirs, and every trespass offering of theirs, which they shall render unto me, [shall be] most holy for thee and for thy sons.

Num 18:10 In the most holy [place] shalt thou eat it; every male shall eat it: it shall be holy unto thee.

Num 18:11 And this [is] thine; the heave offering of their gift, with all the wave offerings of the children of Israel: I have given them unto thee, and to thy sons and to thy daughters with thee, by A STATUTE FOR EVER: every one that is clean in thy house shall eat of it.

Num 18:12 All the best of the oil, and all the best of the wine, and of the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they shall offer unto the LORD, them have I given thee.

Num 18:13 [And] whatsoever is first ripe in the land, which they shall bring unto the LORD, shall be thine; every one that is clean in thine house shall eat [of] it.

Num 18:14 Every thing devoted in Israel shall be thine.

Num 18:15 Every thing that openeth the matrix in all flesh, which they bring unto the LORD, [whether it be] of men or beasts, shall be thine: nevertheless the firstborn of man shalt thou surely redeem, and the firstling of unclean beasts shalt thou redeem.

Num 18:16 And those that are to be redeemed from a month old shalt thou redeem, according to thine estimation, for the money of five shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, which [is] twenty gerahs.

Num 18:17 But the firstling of a cow, or the firstling of a sheep, or the firstling of a goat, thou shalt not redeem; they [are] holy: thou shalt sprinkle their blood upon the altar, and shalt burn their fat [for] an offering made by fire, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

Num 18:18 And the flesh of them shall be thine, as the wave breast and as the right shoulder are thine.

Num 18:19 All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the children of Israel offer unto the LORD, have I given thee, and thy sons and thy daughters with thee, by a statute for ever: it [is] a covenant of salt for ever before the LORD unto thee and to thy seed with thee.

Num 18:20 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I [am] thy part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel.

Num 18:21 And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, [even] the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Num 18:22 Neither must the children of Israel henceforth come nigh the tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.

Num 18:23 But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: [it shall be] a statute for ever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they have no inheritance.

Num 18:24 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer [as] an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance.

Num 18:25 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Num 18:26 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, [even] a tenth [part] of the tithe.

Num 18:27 And [this] your heave offering shall be reckoned unto you, as though [it were] the corn of the threshingfloor, and as the fulness of the winepress.

Num 18:28 Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the LORD of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and ye shall give thereof the LORD'S heave offering to Aaron the priest.

Num 18:29 Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave offering of the LORD, of all the best thereof, [even] the hallowed part thereof out of it.

Num 18:30 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, When ye have heaved the best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the Levites as the increase of the threshingfloor, and as the increase of the winepress.

Num 18:31 And ye shall eat it in every place, ye and your households: for it [is] your reward for your service in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Num 18:32 And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, when ye have heaved from it the best of it: neither shall ye pollute the holy things of the children of Israel, lest ye die.

THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES:

      The feast of Tabernacles prophecy offers more evidence to be believed by faith, of THE LAW GOING FORTH FROM ZION. The Jews will practice Judaism in Israel and alll the world will come to them to worship the Lord of glory there. We will not practice the law as they practice the law, but some portions of the law such as THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES will be required of the inhabitants of the world who survive THE GREAT DAY OF THE LORD'S WRATH in the 2nd Coming of Christ. Here is the prophecy:

      "And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles." (Zechariah 14:16)

LOVE OF NEIGHBOR IS WISELY BUILT INTO JEWISH RELIGIOUS LAWS:

      We have been told by ignorant leaders that morality and love cannot be legislated, but they are wrong. Israel long ago legislated both morality and love into its culture. For those who are off balance with the idea of serving Christ under a renewal of Judaism in Israel, with his Word going forth to the nations as law; we have several Scriptures for the reader to seriously consider. You can call them laws of love if you wish.

      Let us also consider the eternal nature of the Word of God before we proceed to quote these three Scriptures from the law of Moses. Judaism will clearly become reestablished again in the beginning of the thousand year reign of Christ. God taught the Israelites the law through Moses and Aaaron long long ago, not as a temporary means of ministering to him; but as the only way for them as his royal nation to minister to him continually day and night. God did so with a full knowledge of the future fully intending to bring Judaism into a better practice with a healthier Israel in the world to come.

      God is the same yestereday, today and forever. The Old Testament richly contains the perfect will of God forever. It is not an obsolete Book. Many have become accustomed to Israel being on the shelf, even in regard to the practice of Judaism which Israel itself in its present democratic state rejects in many ways. However in the future, Israel will rebuild its temple and return to animal sacrifices to restablish its relationship with God. There will be repercussions internationally from animal rights factions, but Israel will return to sacrificing animals on its rebuilt altars.

      l It is important for you, dear reader, to avoid forming your beliefs based on what you see. Your beliefs should be based not on what is in the world, but on what the Word of God says will be in the world.

      This section is presented to you in the latter portion of this document because the three Scriptures selected for you to consider out of the law do not contain any promise to be Millenium Age law practiced in Israel, but as has already been pointed out; the entire body of the written law will be re-activated and practiced as law in Israel for the thousand years of Christ's reign. And once the Gentile nations awaken to the prosperity and power of Millenium Age Israel, and the garden of Eden Israel is turned in to; we will all want such laws built into our cultures:

      In America, farmers and planters of vineyards will call the police if anyone is seen helping themselves to the fruits of their labor. According to our present day laws such activity is trespassing. Open your Bible to Deuteronomy 23:24/25 if you like where Moses wrote:

      "WHEN YOU COME INTO YOUR NEIGHBOR'S VINEYARD, THEN YOU MAY EAT GRAPES YOUR FILL AT YOUR OWN PLEASURE; BUT YOU SHALL NOT PUT ANY IN YOUR VESSEL. WHEN YOU COME INTO THE STANDING CORN OF YOUR NEIGHBOR, THEN YOU MAY PLUCK THE EARS WITH YOUR HAND; BUT YOU SHALL NOT MOVE A SICKLE UNTO YOUR NEIGHBOR'S STANDING CORN."

      You can see by this law there were no fences to keep neighbors out. And if there were fences, the gates were not locked to keep their neighbors out. The law of Moses embodies love of neighbor. It was written by God through Moses, who knows the nature of man. God and Moses knew Israel would do just what America is doing. By legislating love into law, Moses removed some of the reasons that provoke bickering between neighbors. By legislating what would seem impractical, the Israelis actually become more unified as a nation.

      Consider the same principles embodied elsewhere in the law of Moses: "WHEN YOU CUT DOWN YOUR HARVEST IN YOUR FIELD, AND HAVE FORGOTTEN A SHEAF IN THE FIELD, YOU SHALL NOT GO AGAIN TO FETCH IT: IT SHALL BE FOR THE STRANGER, FOR THE FATHERLESS, AND FOR THE WIDOW: THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD MAY BLESS YOU IN ALL THE WORK OF YOUR HANDS. WHEN YOU BEAT YOUR OLIVE TREE, YOU SHALL NOT GO OVER THE BOUGHS AGAIN: IT SHALL BE FOR THE STRANGER, FOR THE FATHERLESS AND FOR THE WIDOW. WHEN YOU GATHER THE GRAPES OF YOUR VINEYARD, YOU SHALL NOT GLEAN IT AFTERWARD: IT SHALL BE FOR THE STRANGER, FOR THE FATHERLESS, AND FOR THE WIDOW." (Deuteronomy 24:19/21)

      You can see by these specific laws, the need for institutionalizing those categories of needy people mentioned is reduced and even eliminated; and the old people homes, and orphanages, and rescue missions where they congregate are not exactly at all times desireable places for them to be in American society. The lack of such institutions in Israel of old relieved the government of an ever growing bureaucracy that we cannot seem to escape in this country.

      Think about what you just read in those four laws of Moses. Do you know the cost of grapes at the supermarket? They are exceedingly expensive, are they not? So expensive, a large portion of the American population cannot afford to buy them. Yet the Israeli of old, and the Millenium Age Israeli is able to go for a walk without trespassing on creation, and while enjoying the walk; they are able to eat their fill of grapes right off of the vine as long as they take none of them home with them in a vessel. In other words, they can take grapes home with them in their hands.

      In America, the vineyard owner would fly into a rage at the monetary loss. We are a nation of every man for himself people. Our vineyard owners would see the grapes eaten as lost bottles of wine on the other end of their production schedule. It would torment them. Our laws have taught us to hate our neighbor and we as a nation are blind to it.

      In a standing field of corn, the neighbors of the farmer has the right to pluck as much corn as they can carry home with them to cook and eat. The neighbors will then have contact with the farmer on a good basis. Under the law of Moses, neighbors were encouraged to draw near to neighboring farmers and vineyard keepers with a spirit of sharing and of appreciation for their labors in the fields. Our laws are inferior. The neighbors to farmers and vineyard owners are encouraged to stay away. To be strangers.

      In the latter two laws of Moses, the Lawgiver addresses the farmers. Moses encourages the farmers to leave something for the needy. He does so to produce a God consciousness in Israel. The farmer in the agricultural theocracy of Israel who left nothing for the needy gave himself away to observers that he was a self centered godless man. In America, our farmers would count it foolishness to leave anything in the fields for the needy to help themselves to. It would not only produce a financial loss for them, it would encourage trespassing. Our laws exclude faith in God as well as a concern for the needy.

      The owners of an olive tree are allowed to beat the branches of their olive tree once. What remains y law belongs to those three categories of needy specified in the law of Moses. You'll notice that he does not specify "homelessness" as a category of neediness. Neither were provisions made for drunks to feed from the fields unless they were neighbors to those fields where they would have the same rights as the other neighbors. Homelessness is a big city product in America where all of the land is owned or too expensive to buy, and where drugs and alcohol and religious and secular agencies are willing to feed, clothe and even finance non productive individuals. Israel had no such problems in her glorious past.

      Now, perhaps you will be able to read the law of Moses with an eye for what is coming. Israel has already shown through the Apostles, that it does not intend to multiply Judaism to the Gentiles. Nonetheless, for those who reign with Christ in the Age to come will be wise to legislate laws of love into their culture to produce the best results in serving God and Christ during the thousand years after Armageddon.

      It is also interesting to note that supply and demand seem to control the price of products in the marketplace everywhere. The loss of a small percentage of a harvest to a farmer's neighbor who were not many in Israel of old meant a little less product made it to market, driving the price up a little; and putting the money right back in the planter's pockets. Those laws of helping yourself to the produce of a farmer would not become an invitation for tourists to swarm onto the strawberry harvest fields in Anaheim, California where the original Disneyland was built or there would be no strawberries to sell. So you see there is an intricate balance to legislating laws that Moses was able to achieve, and considering that he will most certainly return in the Resurrection; the nations will have the opportunity of seeing the results of his laws in Israel as the nations go there to worship the Lord regularly.

      Meanwhile, the entire Bible is an open Book for those who wish to be taught of God through his Spirit. May God be with you in your studies to open your eyes to the world to come. Amen.
