Israelite Community: Widows & Orphans





Exodus 22:22-24


Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child. 23If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry; 24And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.



Ordained to be protected and cared for by the Most High throughout all the land were the Widows and Orphans.  Along side the Levite Priest, We as a nation of people always cared for this particular group of our community with special care. 

Facing capital punishment if not diligently done so, our forefathers and fore mothers contributed monetary and non-monetary supplies to the treasuries for their provisions. Perhaps the most notable widows and orphans mentioned in the book of the Law are:


Tamar the widow (Genesis 38:11) The Widow and vessels of oil (2 Kings 4:1)
Judith wife of  Manasses of the tribe of Simeon (Book of Judith 8:4;9:2)
Women of Israel (Isaiah Chapter 4)
Anna the prophetess (Luke 2:36-37)
Widow of Zarephath who feed the Prophet Elijah(1 Kings 17:9)
and countless others........

From beginning to end, in the book of the Law, our Father unconditionally expresses His great care and mercy for them. One wonderful example in the 
2 book of Maccabees conceivably displays HIS solemness! A messenger Heliodorus because of the King's commandment was brutally beaten to the brink of death for attempting to take the temple's treasuries which include the monies to care for them.

An inference of a widow's life experience can be seen in the WORD. For instance, her style of dress (Genesis38:14 Judith 10:3) her financial status
(1 Kings 17:12,Job 24:3) how she raises her children and so forth. It's not a pleasant pill to swallow  knowing we as a nation of people haven't always been trustworthy when caring for our sisters and orphans, but the FATHER has been merciful to the nation of Israel. 

As an Israelite, let us  always consider our widows and orphans.

Hidden Treasures of the Diaspora

NICODEMUS AND THE GANG
                                  
Inez Hogan (August 5 1895-February 1973) was an American author and Illustrator of children's books.


Did you Know ??



Black Americana

 "African-American" Memorabilia

Collecting, seeing, and discussing such memorabilia can be a "soft" spot for some in the Diaspora, but for many who understand the prophecies of the children of Israel may view it as small signs of validation.  In the Books of Nicodemus and the Gang (after reading many comments as well as pictures of open pages) I conclude that a lot of his adventures were typical everyday life events as an Israelite male child in america. Not fully aware of his true nationality, but very conscience of God, also knowing he was one of his children. Just take a look at this page featuring a song as well:  


Black americana memorabilia has an in-depth history of identiying the black characters with bibical names. Quite often, the character(s) have a great regard for family, moral values, respect, and high self-esteem. In the many comments I've read people stated they learned a lot of life values from the adventures Nicodemus. The dialect and depiction of black children in this era by Inez Hogan was what some would now consider offensive, but it doesn't take away from their undeniable beauty or visual impact.  Racism has been in the atomsphere throughout countless generations. Some may feel reluctant to owning anything they deem attached to it, while others find that ignoring the plight of our people to be insolent to our foreparents regardless of the pain it arouses.  Know this  rather painful or enlighting black americana memorabilia is not a reflection of the subjects character, but the creator there of.

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:”

The Truth About Easter


HOLIDAY HORRORs




The Truth About Easter

 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it." Deuteronomy 12:32



 Fact #1 Easter is a Sumerian legend of Tammuz and his Mother/Wife Ishtar, god and goddesses of fertility. Which in celebrating Easter is idolatry per the Bible. Read Ezekiel 8:12-14; Exodus 20:1-4

FACT #2 Easter is a moveable holiday (holyday). In turn supports its origin worship (celebration) to that of fertility, conception, renewal and vernal equinox/spring solstice. All the High Holydays(holidays) ordained by God are inflexible dates.


Fact #3 Good Friday is also a pagan practice!  Friday per the Book of the Law(Bible) is known as Day of Preparation or the day before Sabbath (rest/7thday) modern day Saturday, Mark 15:42.  Jesus the Christ stated: “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” -Matthew 12:40. Friday to Sunday is not a total of three days and three nights.


Fact#4 Symbolic figures of Easter are foolish! Rabbits do not lay eggs, Eggs are not colorful, and the cross represents an instrument used to crucify our Lord and Savior which the children of Israel were forbidden to worship wood and stone!  Read Mark 7:7-13, II Corinthians 6:17, 1 John 2:15, Revelation 18:4

A MOMENT OF EXCELLENCY IN WISDOM


JOSEPH the son of  ISRAEL


GENESIS CHAPTER 42

Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.
2And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.
3And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.
4And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.
5Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.
6For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.
7And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.
8So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.
9Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not:
10And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children's children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast:
11And there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years of famine; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to poverty.
12And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you.
13And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither.
14And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck.
15Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them: and after that his brethren talked with him.
16And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, Joseph's brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants.
17And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do ye; lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan;
18And take your father and your households, and come unto me: and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat of the land.
19Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come.
20Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.
21And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.
22To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment.
23And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread and meat for his father by the way.
24So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto them, See that ye fall not out by the way.
25And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob their father,
26And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed them not.
27And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived:
28And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.

Proverbs 15:33

“The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.”
