JEFF SESSIONS, CHILDREN AT THE BORDER, PAUL AND LAW
Jeff Sessions is almost always wrong - whether with politics, law or religion. He picked the wrong Bible verse to quote. He is right in fighting illegal aliens, but wrong on how he is carrying out his mission. Updated on 6/18/2018.
This article won't make me popular but I write what I have evidence to support and what I believe rather than what is politically correct. Attorney General (A.G.) Jeff Sessions, has cited the New Testament's Paul to support his views that it's OK to separate children from their parents when they're caught illegally crossing the border from Mexico into the U.S. I'm not in favor of arresting any of them for more than a day or whatever it takes to get them to a C-130 transport to send them home. Still with me? Figure 1 speaks to the issue. The axis term is JEFF SESSIONS. At the same absolute skip is PAUL. At the same skip and in sequence with his name is YOUR YOUTH. Touching YOUR YOUTH in the open text is PRISONERS. Five lines below PRISONERS in the open text is BORDER. Sessions spoke about the importance of enforcing the law. BORDER is centered one line above ORDINANCES YOU SHALL PERFORM (enforce) THEM. Finally, Jeff Sessions has done little but provide heartache to Trump ever since starting as A.G. His clear pro-Establishment actions only serve Hillary Clinton's gang of criminals. Touching JEFF SESSIONS on the line above him is CLINTON at skip -1. This matrix was found against odds of over 5.7 billion to 1.
Figure 1 above and its spreadsheet below. This matrix appeared against odds of over 5.7 billion to 1. It is evidence that the Torah Code can produce matrices that are worthy of attention not just by all religious people, but also by military intelligence. This matrix is akin to finding a modern newspaper buried under a pyramid in ancient Egypt over 3,300 years ago. Issues of theology aside, it indicates that somehow information about our time found its way back in time. The matrix thus has implications not only for religion and military intelligence, but also for physics.
STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF FIGURE 1. Returning to Figure 1, as per my usual protocol, no statistical significance was assigned to the axis term, here the lowest skip of JEFF SESSIONS in wrapped Torah. Sessions let us know that he was going to enforce the law, and the most significant term was ORDINANCES YOU SHALL PERFORM (enforce) THEM which was found in the open text against odds of about 1,337 to 1. The next most significant a priori term was PRISONERS which was in the open text against odds of about 446 to 1. BORDER is in the open text against odds of about 41 to 1. While no extra value is given for position, CLINTON touches JEFF SESSIONS. She is at a special case skip (-1) against odds of about 23.5 to 1. PAUL is also at a special case skip against odds of about 10 to 1. No value was assigned to YOUR YOUTH because it was only found a posteriori by snooping, but it sequentially follows PAUL and touches PRISONERS. All a priori terms were at special case skips (+/- 1 or the absolute skip of the axis term). The odds against having all these terms in only 228 letters with the lowest ELS of a transliteration of JEFF SESSIONS were about 5,796,588,587 to 1 which is really quite extraordinary. While I do not expect my Christian friends to agree with me on all my criticism of Paul, I hope that my friends in the U.S. Intelligence community will appreciate that this matrix, which describes in detail events in our time, was found in a text that is about 3,300 years old. It is further evidence that the Torah, for some reason, contains a Code that can be of value to the Intelligence community. As for science (in particular - physics), this matrix begs the question of how so much information found its way back in time. By now, 21 years into my Codes research and based on the IP addresses of those who visit this site and how often they are here, I've got a pretty good idea. Along those lines:

Now, getting serious again: WHY WAS SESSIONS WRONG IN POINTING TO PAUL? Here is the most controversial aspect this article.
On 6/15/2018 The Washington Post Reminds Us That Romans Chapter 13 Was Used to Justify Slavery Here and the Holocaust in Europe. Let's examine why Paul was a poor choice for Sessions to point to. We'll look at both Christian and Jewish beliefs about his doctrine. Sessions cited Paul in Romans 13:1-7. This "scripture" (not in a Jewish Bible) was used by Nazis as reason for Germans to follow Hitler. It was also used to support slavery in the U.S.
1Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended.
4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.
5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.
6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.
7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
At some point Paul must have changed his mind because in Galatians (3:10 and 3:13) we find (in the New International Version) him saying the following:
10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”[a]
Footnotes: Galatians 3:10 Deut. 27:26
13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”[a]
Footnotes: Galatians 3:13 Deut. 21:23
The above anti-Law remarks by Paul are akin to someone in the United States calling our Law, the Constitution of the United States, a curse. They should be compared to remarks attributed to the Nazarene in Matthew 5:17-19. There he is quoting as saying:
17Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them.
19So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
This is why I believe that Paul knew nothing of the Nazarene and why I believe that his theology had no valid link to what the Nazarene thought. Anyone who wants to rebut my opinion is welcome to argue their view on my blog. However it appears likely that the Law that Paul saw as a curse was Torah (God's Law) while the law he wanted everyone to follow was the civil law of tyrants and murderers like that of the Roman Empire. While Paul's death is not written about in the New Testament, Wikipedia cites several sources indicating that Rome actually beheaded him.
Note: While I have thousands of matrices that could be used to argue that a signal sent back in time might have played a role in encoding the Torah, I have (almost) no such evidence that this could have also happened in the New Testament. However most intelligent people in the United States are beginning to understand the link between evil where it exists in our Government and the so-called Deep State or Establishment. I don't know if Paul understood the full implications of Romans 13:1-7 until the Roman Government was about to execute him, but if this there is one set of terribly wrong words that I have ever seen that sum up the Deep State and those in the media who support it, it is Romans 13:1-7.
Lest I reinforce widespread misunderstandings about the Jewish Law (Torah - which has the Sessions on matrix in it) I want to emphasize that Jewish Law consists of 613 commandments that pertain to the Jewish people, although some of these commandments only pertain to a subset of Jews like Kohanim (priests) or Leviim (priests' assistants like my family). Some of the commandments only pertain to men, and others only are for women. The 10 Commandments are part of the 613, but Gentiles are not required to follow all of them. For example, Gentiles are not required to keep the Sabbath. Of the 613, according to Orthodox rabbis Gentiles are only required to keep 7 Precepts of Noah. Briefly, they are as follows:
1. No murder
2. No theft
3. No incest (most rabbis include a prohibition again adultery and certain other forms of sexual activity like bestiality and homosexual behavior)
4. No idol worship
5. No blasphemy
6. No cruelty to animals (literally, don't cut the flesh from an animal while it is alive), and
7. Maintain courts of justice.
So when Paul preached to Gentiles about the curse of the law, he didn't know what he was talking about. He wrongly implied that Gentiles are required to obey the Sabbath, kosher laws, and hundreds of other laws that never pertained to them. Laws pertaining to sacrifice (by Jews) are only in force when there is (or will be) a Temple in place in Jerusalem. President Trump did a great job of placing a U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, but it's a Jewish belief that one of the signs of the Messiah (besides ending all war permanently) will be that he will build a Third Temple on the spot that held the first two Temples.
Whether he realized it, Sessions restarted a theological debate that stretches far beyond American politics and passes through some of the darkest swamps of recent history.
The passage — “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God” — has been read as an unequivocal order for Christians to obey state authority, a reading that not only justified Southern slavery but also authoritarian rule in Nazi Germany and South African apartheid.
But because the interpretation runs counter to so much of the Christian message, and drills right into the borderlands between church and state, the passage has also been incredibly controversial. In 1744, clergyman Elisha Williams remarked that the text was “often wrecked and tortured by such wits as were disposed to serve the designs of arbitrary power.” Sessions’s comments yesterday kicked up a similarly intense response.
What Sessions could have pointed to if he wanted to talk about Bible Law was the following section of Torah - Exodus 20:3 to 20:6.
20:2 When you acquire a Hebrew slave, he shall serve six years; in the seventh year he shall go free, without payment.
20:3 If he came single, he shall leave single. If he had a wife, his wife shall leave with him.
20:4 If his master gave him a wife, and she has borne him children, the wife and her children shall belong to the master, and he shall leave alone.
20:5 But if the slave declares, “I love my master, and my wife and children: I do not wish to go free,”
20:6 his master shall take him before Elohim. He shall be brought to the door or the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall then remain his slave for life.
There are other Torah laws for non-Jewish slaves, but the issues above are as follows. While Egyptians maintained jails such as that where Joseph was imprisoned, we could not maintain jails while roaming in the desert for 40 years between our slavery in Egypt and our entrance into the land of Israel. There were many punishments for various crimes from sacrifices required to lashes to death. Among them was slavery. If a Jew stole someone's property and could not return it along with the fine required, he could be given as a slave to the one he stole from, for up to 6 years. When it was time to go free if he loved a wife that his master gave him and the children that she bore him he could stay there as a perpetual slave. But if he wanted his freedom then he could not take his wife and new children with him. He would be separated from them. This was the right choice because God had done much to free us from slavery in Egypt and the thief here was choosing to negate it all by being a thief and choosing his new wife and children over God.
As a Jew should not be a thief and choose slavery, the people of countries like Honduras should not be encoraged or rewarded for sendking their children 2,000 miles on train roofs to be wards of the American State. Nor should they come here en mass illegally. What they should do is combine to fight the MS-13 gangsters that terrorize their nation. They should fight to make their homeland safe, and if necessary, our Government should arm them to accomplish this. If they must come here they must do so legally. Sessions, who is wrong about so much, is right about acting tough on this issue. It might sound cruel, but if we don't build the wall and enforce our borders then all of our nation will be overrun by the likes of MS-13.
Christianity has long missed the problem with Paul, and few realize that Paul had a greater impact in forming Christian theology than the Nazarene.While the New Testament presents the Gospels first, most scholars think they written after the Pauline writings and it was likely that Paul's work influenced them even though Paul never met the Nazarene before his crucifixion. Foe example, Wikipedia states, "In all of these epistles except the Epistle to the Hebrews, Paul does claim to be the author and writer. However, the contested letters may have been forgeries, as that seems to have been a problem among the early church as a whole. Seven letters (with consensus dates)  considered genuine by most scholars:
- First Thessalonians (c. 50 AD)
- Galatians (c. 53)
- First Corinthians (c. 53–54)
- Philippians (c. 55)
- Philemon (c. 55)
- Second Corinthians (c. 55–56)
- Romans (c. 57)
When were thy Gospels written? While Mark is placed second in a New Testament, Wikipedia states that, "Mark is the primary source for information about Jesus" Further they state that, "Most scholars believe that Mark was written by a second-generation Christian, around or shortly after the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Second Temple in year 70."
How about the third book of the New Testament - Luke? Wikipedia writes, "As is the case with all the Gospels, it is unknown exactly when the Gospel of Luke was written. Scholars have proposed a range of dates from as early as 60 AD to well into the second century, but the majority of recent critical scholars favour late 1st-century dates after 70 AD."
Finally the fourth Gospel is John. Wikipedia states, "Most scholars date the Gospel of John to c. 90–110."
If these dates are right then when Paul did his preaching before his death, generally put at about 64, not only had he never met the living Nazarene, but he did not even have a single Gospel book to refer to!
THE LAST TEMPTATION.
With a great deal of poetic license and terrific music, this issue of Paul's lack of familiarity with the Nazarene was dramatically brought out in the film by Martin Scorsese entitled The Last Temptation of Christ. The relevent 5-minutes portraying the Nazarene listening to Paul preach his new theology and then meeting him to correct him is at this link. I saw the film in North Miami Beach when it was released in 1988. Normally Jews want nothing to do with anything related to the Nazarene, but I noticed that most of the people in line with me were Orthodox Jews! Few movie theaters showed the film (about one in each major American city) in large part because of Church opposition. But because it was so thought-provoking I would rate it as one of the best films that I ever saw. I believe its portrayal of Paul was spot on.
INVITATION TO COMMENT ON RELIGIOUS ASPECTS OF THIS ARTICLE. Normally, as an Orthodox Jew, I discourage blogs backing Christian theology and I avoid using the Code to back my views about the Nazarene. However, occasionally when I search for a matrix about an event in the news, I am forced the look at religious terms when the story is about religion. That was the case here when the Attorney General decided to use the New Testament (which again is not in a Jewish Bible) to back his position on American law. I believe that it is inherently dishonest to take a shot at another faith and not allow members of that faith to have a chance to respond. So, for those who want to dispute what I have written above, I invite you to write me. I will publish well written rebuttals, but I do not want to linger long on this topic.
