The beautiful nearly full moon was visible as I drove to work yesterday morning, reminding me of the natural illumination that the Hebrews had on their exit from bondage.
Perfectly timed, as all things truly governed by Almighty always are.
We tend to think we know when or how or why something should occur, but we’re really quite clueless, I think.
Today, a de-leavening must occur in my home. I am saving it for late afternoon, so that the visitors who do not observe unleavened bread are able to snack on any pieces of leaven still in the home. That certainly marks me. I am not Jewish, nor do I practice Judaism. I don’t even live with anyone who believes as I do – so by the absolutes of talmud, I do not pass muster.
No problem. I am not one of them. Perhaps they are not even one of the people of the book. If the paternal lines were ignored, and only maternal mattered, is it possible that the lineage has been completely changed? I don’t know, and it’s not up to me to know. Thankfully, the lineage that matters most, that of the priests, has been preserved as a paternal lineage. Praise YHVH!
Pass over. A term used in negative form in the world of work. A truly life saving term in the world governed by Almighty. We really don’t know, do we?
Will we pass?
Deep thinking today – not really cohesive thoughts – mere ramblings from a mere Hebrew.
