First, let me dispel a myth; Torah is not law but instruction. The plural of Torah is Torot. In Judaism the first five (5) books of the Bible are known as Torah but inside the pages there are many instructions for us to use to have a good, loving relationship with our Father/Creator.

A friend of mine unknowingly confirmed the necessity of this article in a totally unrelated email. Thanks Kathy!
AUTHOR’S NOTE: I want to take this opportunity to thank the many new readers that have come to the site from all over the world. For at least 2 days there were more readers coming from India than even the U.S. Thank you. Also, I did notice a single reader from Vietnam and that gave me great joy. Thank you for taking the time to come to Codgerville!!! Raphael, as always, I want to thank you and you friends in Brazil for your continued interest. John, thank you very much for your interest. And, finally, I would like to explain that I started this article almost 2 weeks ago now but have been under the weather since I began the article and I am, only now, getting strong enough to continue it. I took 6 pages of notes, front and back and single-spaced and as I look at them my only thought is: “Huh?” So please bear with me.*** Continue reading

What is in a Name?
Have you ever researched your name? Or, have you researched your family name? Names can be funny in their origins, or practical or based on some new technology of their day. Take for instance the invention of the English longbow. It changed the history of warfare and the political geography of Europe in the 11th century. Look at some of the names that evolved from that technology: Archer, Bowman, Stringer, Fletcher, Knox, Shafter, Pointer, to name a few, but you get the idea. Can you imagine what would happen if technology of the 21st century was used for the same purpose? You would have family names of Blog, Tweet, Chat, Facebook or Facetime, or maybe Apple, Dos, Unix, or Pinterest. Well, maybe not. Continue reading
I am quite sure that most people, when researching a biblical topic, do not expect to encounter one subtitled “The Stargates” but nevertheless it needs to be discussed because if no one teaches about it then Hasatan can use the existence of it to deceive and mislead. Let’s take a look at what people think a stargate looks like. Continue reading
Immediately when I write “The Purpose” I think about all the various possibilities that it might include. It will be the most difficult to “quantify”. The most obvious purpose is; Why this series of articles” Continue reading
((Please note that this article is NOT part of my We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood series. The weather is warming and I believe that this will bring more protests, more riots, more demonstrations against the Trump administration, so I felt lead to issue this article before continuing the series. Also, I want to say Thank You or Khaap Khun Mak to my 2 faithful readers in Thailand and Muito Obrigado to my 3 faithful readers in Brazil. It’s been 42 years since I was in Thailand and I have never been to Brazil but would love to see it, one day.)) Continue reading
