Covenant of Peace

Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no longer stubborn. For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Love the sojourner, therefore, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.

Deuteronomy 10:16
A rainbow rises from the mountains near the Dead Sea.
Rainbow over Israel

The original covenant required that we circumcise our foreskin as a sign of obedience to Torah, and in return we would be as numerous as the stars and a blessing unto the nations. The covenant was fulfilled in the time of King Solomon. However after several generations the people of Israel turned to foreign idols and abandoned Torah. We broke the covenant, provoked God to fury against us, and were massacred and exiled to Babylon. But during our exile, the prophet Jeremiah announced the new covenant:

Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Jeremiah 31:31

This is a fundamentally different covenant. We circumcise our heart with justice and righteousness, and we all agree on the law and no longer need a government to rule us. (And in fact, Israel has no government and never will again. This is a very good thing.)

But first the exile:

And the Lord will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations where the Lord will drive you. And there you will serve gods of wood and stone, the work of human hands, that neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, you will return to the Lord your God and obey his voice.

Deuteronomy 4:27

Jews must return to God and Torah – all of us – and restore our fortunes before we return to Israel:

And when all these things come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you call them to mind among all the nations where the Lord your God has driven you, and return to the Lord your God, you and your children, and obey his voice in all that I command you today, with all your heart and with all your soul, then the Lord your God will restore your fortunes and have mercy on you, and he will gather you again from all the peoples where the Lord your God has scattered you. If your outcasts are in the uttermost parts of heaven, from there the Lord your God will gather you, and from there he will take you. And the Lord your God will bring you into the land that your fathers possessed, that you may possess it. And he will make you more prosperous and numerous than your fathers. And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your offspring, so that you will love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.

Deuteronomy 30:1

Heeding the false prophets, Zionists returned to Israel too soon and stole the land instead of buying it. As a result there is endless strife. The key to understanding the New Covenant, however is the commandment to ‘love the stranger’. This is Israel’s original sin: the oppression of the Palestinians (much like the USA’s original sin was slavery). We have turned them into slaves, enemies and terrorists, just as we were in Egypt – despite multiple explicit warnings throughout Torah:

You shall not pervert the justice due to the sojourner or to the fatherless, or take a widow’s garment in pledge, but you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you from there; therefore I command you to do this.

Deuteronomy 24:17

And for those who question whether Palestinians are native born or foreigners:

There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who sojourns among you.

Exodus 12:49

We must instead grant them equality like we enjoy in the USA. Then Israel can enter the Garden of Eden. And the world will recognize the righteousness and glory and carry the Jews back to it as prophesied by Isaiah:

Thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations,
  and raise my signal to the peoples;
and they shall bring your sons in their arms,
  and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders.”

Isaiah 49:22

Zionists are still provoking God to anger against us with their relentless intimidation and instigation. Their agenda is to insult and bully to provoke ‘antisemitism’ as a pretext to criminalize BDS and ‘Holocaust denial’ to make our home countries hate us to incite Holocaust 2.0, the survivors of which will be returned to Israel where the Zionists will oppress us or turn us back to our deaths based on a social media search. They will flog the resulting statistics to accrue more power to oppress Palestinians. Ezekiel condemns this cynical strategy:

Because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep, therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: Thus says the Lord God, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them. For thus says the Lord God: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness.

Ezekiel 34:9

Thus we are gathered up by God, not expelled by ‘antisemites’. Zionists are bad shepherds and despise Jews. Any Jew who isn’t Zionist isn’t a real Jew to them. However the prophets are insistent that we must unite all Jews. We can’t abandon any. Zionist contempt for us makes clear that their hysterical cries of ‘antisemitism’ are just a cynical ploy. The world won’t fall for that trick again.

Recently there has been a spate of attacks on Jews in Brooklyn by kids throwing eggs and other mischief. Of course they were instigated by Zionists, such as by censoring Farrakhan on Facebook and other tactics. If Zionists had their way, we would position snipers along Nostrand Ave. aiming at the face. Of course, this would create the same human rights disaster that prevails in Gaza.

Israel must enact equality to fulfill the Covenant of Peace. It will be painful, like giving birth. But this is the only way to return to the Garden. This wisdom is nothing new. We knew it 150 years ago before we were hijacked by Zionism:

American Jews feel no desire to return to Palestine. The inhabited world must become one holy land, every house a temple, and every man a priest; that is God’s promise to Israel.

Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise, 1868

As for the Messiah who achieves this, she will not be recognized as such until after the new covenant is fulfilled, as Jeremiah explains:

The prophets who preceded you and me from ancient times prophesied war, famine, and pestilence against many countries and great kingdoms. As for the prophet who prophesies peace, when the word of that prophet comes to pass, then it will be known that the Lord has truly sent the prophet.

Jeremiah 28:8

2 thoughts on “Covenant of Peace”

  1. Both Abraham and King David purchase land from non-Jews. They don’t conquer or steal it. In this case, King David insists on buying land for the First Temple:

    2 Samuel 24:18-25:

    And Gad came that day to David and said to him, “Go up, raise an altar to the Lord on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.” So David went up at Gad’s word, as the Lord commanded. And when Araunah looked down, he saw the king and his servants coming on toward him. And Araunah went out and paid homage to the king with his face to the ground. And Araunah said, “Why has my lord the king come to his servant?” David said, “To buy the threshing floor from you, in order to build an altar to the Lord, that the plague may be averted from the people.” Then Araunah said to David, “Let my lord the king take and offer up what seems good to him. Here are the oxen for the burnt offering and the threshing sledges and the yokes of the oxen for the wood. All this, O king, Araunah gives to the king.” And Araunah said to the king, “May the Lord your God accept you.” But the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will buy it from you for a price. I will not offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God that cost me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. And David built there an altar to the Lord and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the Lord responded to the plea for the land, and the plague was averted from Israel.

  2. “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.” – Leviticus 19:33

    “You shall have the same rule for the sojourner and for the native, for I am the Lord your God.” – Leviticus 24:22

    “For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you, a statute forever throughout your generations. You and the sojourner shall be alike before the Lord. One law and one rule shall be for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.” – Numbers 15:15

    “You shall have one law for him who does anything unintentionally, for him who is native among the people of Israel and for the stranger who sojourns among them.” – Numbers 15:29
