הִנֵּ֛ה יָמִ֥ים בָּאִ֖ים נְאֻם־יְהוָ֑ה וְכָרַתִּ֗י אֶת־בֵּ֧ית יִשְׂרָאֵ֛ל וְאֶת־בֵּ֥ית יְהוּדָ֖ה בְּרִ֥ית חֲדָשָֽׁה׃
See, a time is coming—declares the LORD—when I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah.
לֹ֣א כַבְּרִ֗ית אֲשֶׁ֤ר כָּרַ֙תִּי֙ אֶת־אֲבוֹתָ֔ם בְּיוֹם֙ הֶחֱזִיקִ֣י בְיָדָ֔ם לְהוֹצִיאָ֖ם מֵאֶ֖רֶץ מִצְרָ֑יִם אֲשֶׁר־הֵ֜מָּה הֵפֵ֣רוּ אֶת־בְּרִיתִ֗י וְאָנֹכִ֛י בָּעַ֥לְתִּי בָ֖ם נְאֻם־יְהוָֽה׃
It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers, when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, a covenant which they broke, though I espoused them—declares the LORD.
כִּ֣י זֹ֣את הַבְּרִ֡ית אֲשֶׁ֣ר אֶכְרֹת֩ אֶת־בֵּ֨ית יִשְׂרָאֵ֜ל אַחֲרֵ֨י הַיָּמִ֤ים הָהֵם֙ נְאֻם־יְהוָ֔ה נָתַ֤תִּי אֶת־תּֽוֹרָתִי֙ בְּקִרְבָּ֔ם וְעַל־לִבָּ֖ם אֶכְתֲּבֶ֑נָּה וְהָיִ֤יתִי לָהֶם֙ לֵֽאלֹהִ֔ים וְהֵ֖מָּה יִֽהְיוּ־לִ֥י לְעָֽם׃
But such is the covenant I will make with the House of Israel after these days—declares the LORD: I will put My Teaching into their inmost being and inscribe it upon their hearts. Then I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
וְלֹ֧א יְלַמְּד֣וּ ע֗וֹד אִ֣ישׁ אֶת־רֵעֵ֜הוּ וְאִ֤ישׁ אֶת־אָחִיו֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר דְּע֖וּ אֶת־יְהוָ֑ה כִּֽי־כוּלָּם֩ יֵדְע֨וּ אוֹתִ֜י לְמִקְטַנָּ֤ם וְעַד־גְּדוֹלָם֙ נְאֻם־יְהוָ֔ה כִּ֤י אֶסְלַח֙ לַֽעֲוֺנָ֔ם וּלְחַטָּאתָ֖ם לֹ֥א אֶזְכָּר־עֽוֹד׃ (ס)
No longer will they need to teach one another and say to one another, “Heed the LORD”; for all of them, from the least of them to the greatest, shall heed Me—declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquities, And remember their sins no more.
Attempts to change anything other than myself from what I have become to who I AM is unrighteousness. Who I AM is infallible. Who I have become is a sinner.
What makes who I became a sinner? Well, sin is missing the mark. It is transgression against the law of God. The only real law of God is self-love, and to love others as I love myself.
Contrary to popular religious teachings, none of us were born in sin. We have been, however, shaped in iniquity. We were taught to despise ourselves, and who we are, from birth, is divine beings, existing in natural perfection.
At birth, we were ruled only by nature. Our own nature dominated our entire existence, but because those who came before us had already been indoctrinated to contend with nature, they immediately began to enforce the same control upon us.
We were not allowed to evolve from within, as all other created things do. No; as humans, we presumed ourselves to be greater than nature, so we began to exert our egos, and judge what is right or wrong; good or evil.
In judging nature, we also judged ourselves, and now we are witnessing nature reassert herself in her power. She does as she pleases, despite humanity’s attempts to put restraints on her.
Earthquakes happen to show us that we cannot control her. Yet, we still try to judge her as wrong when we mourn the devastation caused. Tornadoes occur to remind us that nature is autonomous. And we continue to esteem her as evil by grieving over the lives lost.
How long before we stop resisting our own power? When will the day come that we all repent? Turn back to our true selves, which is gods and goddesses within whom is individual sovereignty? If we love God, which is within us, we will obey its commands.
It is not the commands of men written in books, pretending to be the words of God that we are to obey. That is idolatry. The TaNaKh itself even tells us of the real new covenant. It had nothing to do with one man coming to die for the sins of the whole world.
The new covenant is that the law is written upon the innermost being of every man, woman, and child that no one will have need for anyone else to teach them.
So, if we are to truly love It which causes to me our power with all our heart, soul, and strength, we must first realize that It (erroneously translated in English bibles as “the Lord your God”) is within us all, and It has a law for each of us inextricable of our own souls. Then, we must obey the God within ourselves above any other gods of any other religions, cultures, governments, prisons, or schools.
As it is written of Kepha and Yochanon (Peter and John), we would rather obey God than man, but remember, God is within you.
