Jews Sand of The Sea

Posted by Bruce - in Blog, Faith - No Comments

Let’s face it if you actually counted today the population of  people of the Jewish faith it would not be sand of the sea but probably about .2 % of the world population so how can I bible believer rectifier this quagmire?   Well let’s just say their is room for interpretation (below) .

(1) INFLUENCE– Although our population is small we hold many different leadership positions in areas where our holy purpose can be felt whether it be in charity, politics, innovation, entertainment, medicine and of course faith.

(2) BROTHERS, SISTERS, & COUSINS-  Those brother, sister and cousin belief’s that hold onto a faith of one G-D and love of G-D’s other creations are spread throughout the world. The goal of peaceful co-existence within the family is shared by those who might have differences on other points but what family is perfect?

(3) BOOK- The Torah/Bible is shared throughout the world even if some have added a page or made a modification here, there and (you get the point) at least we start with the same opening.

 

 

Impossible Possibilities

“Logically” it’s an impossible mountain to climb but you keep on walking. All the formula’s don’t add up but you keep multiplying. For in the end you know that with your efforts and faith in G-D’s glory will have you will see the light as others just see clouds even if it suddenly comes in a different direction that you’ve never seen before.

You're invited

12/1/2018- 10AM- Congregation Shaarey Israel- 18 Montebello Road-Montebello, NY

This is YOUR official invite to attend my annual D’var Torah on the bibilical story of Joseph. Where I attempt to delve a bit deeper to show how this ancient story is relevant in the times we live in today. I can’t promise that the insight will change your life but I’ll try and at the end you’ll have at least an extra bagel with some cream cheese to go with it. For a wonderful Kiddish with friends will occur afterwards and it’s on my house or maybe just a bedroom.

Wrong Name

Prayer prayer forml

You have taken the time to pray for someone who needs it unfortunately you didn’t take the time to remember the right name, where does your message go?  I believe that G-D not only hears the words of your prayers but your intention thereof and even if the name is spelled differently G-D’s spell check clears it up.  Of course if G-D doesn’t have to use the spell check it would be more direct yet indirect routes help as well.  Prayers work even with an incorrect name  as long as their felt with passion, love and a heartfelt plead.  Therefore even if you’re not sure of the name pray to G-D for their healing for as you see this occuring inside G-D willing it will work outside as well.

Self Worth- JUDGE

In the end who do we let decide our “self worth”? The truth is even though the word “self” is clearly present there are others that have a greater influence. Family, friends and society take a bite into how we might feel about the path we walk on.  Whether we make a certain amount of green $ to buy…., hang with the popular people, or are known by this or that crowd can also play a role in how we feel.  Yet in the end there is only one judge our worth the one who has put us here in the 1st place and will decide when or if we need to come home.  If one does their best to follow the path that G-D has lead them on then they can determine their worth is greater then any shiny diamond or star out there as well as any feelings deep inside.

Foggy Road… No Escape?

fog fog 2

It appears as if I’ve walked this foggy road for days on end and at this point I don’t know where a day begins or ends my only motivation force is to see you again.  The strange thing is I can’t recall how I got here all I have is images of that accident where I guess I was a bit to distracted and now this walk to G-D knows where.  My life has been far from perfect yet even with all my mistakes I’ve given what I could for the family so I guess it hasn’t been that bad.  Occassionally though this fog is too thick and I feel that I should give up and then suddenly it dissipates for a moment to reveal a clearing or some fresh Raspberry’s (you know my inspirational food) and I trek along the way. Even when a bush gets in my way I find some powertool of strength to pull it away. Yet today my ankle is hurting, the fog is thicker then ever and I don’t see how I can survive another….. Wait there is a clearing!!! A gate or something and then I see grandpa greating me… but he’s been dead!?

Reality Check

Posted by Bruce - in basic judaism, Blog, Faith - No Comments

Reality Check

While we might believe we have opened the door to a new opportunity let’s face it the door wouldn’t be there if we couldn’t see it.  A matter if others didn’t help lead us to the door or make sure it stayed open it would have slammed in our face.  We could have fallen straight on the floor just as we were about to open it as well.  The very existence of such a door at this moment in our life only comes from a higher authority.  Therefore the reality check is without G-D putting a door near us, the health to walk toward it and the great people along the way we would still be walking in the dark.

Faith Driven

faith 3 FAITH 1

Faith is easy to observe when you’re in a room of the faithful. When those around you share in the path you have chosen but when you’re the only one driving that is the road test that is most difficult to take.  Others might be “tolerant” of your views but question even the start of your engine and then you might wonder whether it’s worth it take out the key.  Just remember it can be a long and sometimes lonely journey yet G-D has the path laid out for you so keep driving.

Shavuot?

Shavuot.jpg 2 Shavuot 3

Today is Shavuot? A little known holiday that only celebrates the giving of the 10 COMMANDMENTS?  These commandments that many of the faithful hold dear is given to us on this date according to the Jewish calendar. Yet it’s even difficult to spell the name (I tried 3 versions) let alone remember the meaning behind this important holiday. It’s time for a new advertisting/marketing campaign to bring out the importance of this date in our calender. While all the laws of the bible/torah are key if you don’t get these 10 right you’ll never find the door.

G-D Spoke Today

Posted by Bruce - in basic judaism, Blog, Faith - No Comments

faith 3

G-D spoke to me today and at first I didn’t listen because I thought maybe it was just a coincidence yet twice was enough to open my eyes. It wasn’t with words that I heard G-D’s voice but through action that the lips moved as I have been blessed to hear many times in my life.  Some of those words have been seen in miracles that I written about in the past (  http://www.budrebelproductions.com/2015/04/03/miracles-today/  ) and some through paintings I illustrate today.

I woke up at 612 on Shabbos and then went back to sleep only to wake up at 657 and I know you might ask what is the big deal? That is because we are looking at the clock with different eyes and souls.  For 6+12 = 18 and 6+5+7= 18 as well, which in the Jewish faith is 18 or Chai/Life.  On Shabbos I try to separate my life of work which consumes my daily thought to a higher life principle where I’m more open to enjoyment in the avenue’s I leave behind from Monday-Friday.  It might seem a stretch to those who lack faith that this is the word of G-D but my ears are tuned differently.  I hear these words telling me that life isn’t just about what you work for but what you give.  A simple sign/word that G-D wants us to get up and live as we experience the greatness of the journey.
