Sources of Absolute Truth

I recommend that you read yesterday's post before this one (if you haven't done so) -- it will make more sense.

Very simply, the source that I use is the word of G-d.  What?  Before I lose you, let me give you details that will astound you and give you complete confidence in what I am saying.  Note:  from here on I would like to not take the name of our Creator in vain (one of the commandments) but to refer to Him as Hashem which is Hebrew for “the name.”  It is the way observant Jews refer to Him.

Let us start with the most miraculous text in the world – the five books of Moses, the Torah.  It says in the book of Exodus that Hashem dictated the Torah to Moses on Mount Sinai one letter at a time.  What we have is 304,805 letters (not one more or less – I hope to post proof of that in the near future) that has been handed down for 3324 years.  The Torah is our handbook of life as well as the blueprint of creation.  We have verified over the past 30 years what has been known for thousands of years that everything is in the Torah.  By putting the Torah into the computer, we have been able to analysis that the Torah contains hidden codes and messages.  We are amazed at the fact that everything that happens in the world can be found in the Torah with astounding detail.  By reading every second letter, third letter, etc or going up in the alphabet or down in the alphabet, through letter substitution (folding the alphabet different ways), new spaces between the string of letters, etc, etc, etc we see a new body of text with all new information.  Two questions beg asking:  how many coded messages are there and how many methods of coding exist.  The coded information includes every detail about every person that has ever lived, every animal, plant, tree, blade of grass, rock, every star, galaxy, planet in the universe, etc, etc, etc.  In other words, if it exists, it is in the Torah.  What you are wearing today, what you had for breakfast, every word that you said today is in there.  What are you thinking?  “That is impossible!!!!”  Now you are catching on.  The different ways that information is encoded in the Torah numbers 600,000.  This only could have come from a Source of infinite intelligence Who sees all time and knew in advance every thought, word and action that we will have in our lives.  This makes the total number of hidden, and not so hidden messages, that no human being could have known, an infinite amount.  Anyone who believes that the Torah was written by a bunch of old men has not studied the Torah.  Atheists, as an example, don’t have a clue of what reality is in this universe.

Next question:  What is the purpose of the Torah and why does it include everything.
As mentioned above, Hashem gave us the Torah as a handbook of life.  It is all the instructions on how to survive and thrive for eternity.  For a Jew there is 613 commandments that guide our every action in life and brings total success in this world and beyond (more detail of this is forthcoming in future posts)  Gentiles have a total of 7 commandments to adhere to.  Why the big difference between Jew and Gentile is a subject for future posting.

But, on a much deeper level, the Torah serves a very fascinating purpose.  Hashem is consistent.  We see, as an example, that in every cell in any living organism there is a computerized DNA code.  If I said that the body is described in every cell in the organism, it would be an accurate statement.  But, a more accurate statement is that the body actually grows in accordance with the blueprint that is the genetic code.  If I make the statement that everything in the universe is found in complete detail in the Torah it is an accurate statement.  But, a more accurate and completely correct statement is that the 304,805 letters of the Torah is the genetic code of the universe and everything that is in it.  In other words, we are living out the script that is Torah.  If it isn’t in the Torah, it isn’t!  You may ask:  Doesn’t that eliminate free will?  No.  Hashem, who is not in this allusion of time that He provided for us (I hope to expound on that statement in a future post), saw in advance every thought that we would have, every word that we would say and every free will decision that we would make.

Obviously, everything that has happened, is happening and will happen in the world has been told to us.  In the coming days I hope to cover the other areas of messages from Hashem such as the rest of the Bible, the Oral Torah, the Zohar (which is the mystical information that Hashem has given us) and other sources.  Enough to think about for today.
