One Torah For All

One Torah shall be to him that is home-born, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.
Exodus 12:49

A look at interpretation

2nd Kings 9:30
And when Jehu had come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her eyes, and attired her head, and looked out at the window.

In order not to misunderstand what this study is about, one is going to have to read all the way to the end of this one. Otherwise, it is nearly guaranteed that one will not grasp what this study is about and thus misapply some of its opening content.

Windows are evil! How do we know this? In the above passage the most evil woman in Scripture looked out of one. Please note the following passages as well denoting evil associated with windows.

1st Chronicles 15:29
And it came to pass, as the ark of the covenant of YHWH came to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David dancing and playing; and she despised him in her heart.

Had Michal not had a window, she could not have looked out, seen King David dancing, and thus would not have despised him. How many times has a window caused you to sin?

Daniel 6:10
And when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house (now his windows were open in his chamber toward Jerusalem) and he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his Elohim, as he did aforetime.

Here we see that if it had not been for these windows, Daniel would never had been caught and thus, he never would have been thrown into the lion’s den.

Ma’aseh (Acts) 20:9
And there sat in the window a certain young man named Eutychus, borne down with deep sleep; and as Paul discoursed yet longer, being borne down by his sleep he fell down from the third story, and was taken up dead.

Here we have a man die because of a window. If there had been no window, he would not have died. He probably would have still fallen asleep, but he would not have fallen from the third story if there had been no window.

1st Corinthians 10:6
Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

Surely, these things are set in Scripture as examples of what not to do, namely, to have windows. Windows lead to all sorts of evil, even death.

Lest you think I have lost my mind, all the afore-mentioned passages about windows have been brought to you to demonstrate to you how unscrupulous men twist Scripture.

Tehillim (Psalm) 56:5
All the day long they wrest My words;
All their thoughts are against Me for evil.

Kepha (Peter) also warns us about those who twist Scripture, particular those writings of Shaul (Paul).

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 4:2
“You shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish from it, that you may keep the commandments of YHWH your Elohim which I command you.”

Please understand, just because an evil woman looks out of a window, does not make all windows bad. It does not even make the window she looked out of bad or evil. Likewise, just because that same evil woman put on cosmetics does not make the putting of cosmetics any more evil than the fact that she also looked out of a window. Do you understand this? Can you see how evil men take Scripture and twist it to control what others do or do not do?

2nd Timothy 2:15
Show all diligence to present yourself approved unto Elohim, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, handling rightly the word of truth.

There are many other passages of Scripture which mention windows as well in Scripture which do not show them being associated with evil people or evil actions. Windows are not evil or good. It is the person behind the window which is either righteous or wicked, not the window. Nor is it possible for the window to cause one to do evil, or even good for that matter. Windows are benign.

B’reshit (Genesis) 6:5
And YHWH saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Mashiach Yeshua agrees with this passage and taught the same thing!

Matithyah (Matthew) 15:19
“For out of the heart comes forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, railings.”

My brethren, beware of those who twist Scripture, for they do so to their own undoing. Do not be caught up in their destruction!
