Anyone that knows me, knows that I love all things Star Trek, enough so that even the name of my blog site was inspired by it as explained on the ‘About’ page of the site.
The other day I was watching one of Rabbi Skobac’s older Youtube videos on the Noahide Laws and he said something that got me to thinking and became the inspiration of this particular blog.
He said something in the realm that hundred or even a thousand years ago the passage in Zechariah 8:23 must have sounded like science fiction to the Jews of those days.
Lets take a look at it.
Zech. 8:23 Artscroll Tanach
“Thus said Hashem, Master of Legions: “In those days it will happen that ten men, of all the [different] languages of the nations, will take hold, they will take hold of the corner of a garment of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we heard that G-d is with you.”
In our day and time there are hundreds and thousands of people from all nationalities leaving their perspective religions and approaching Jews all over the world. They know that G-d is with them and want to hear what the Creator has to say to them. Many are making the choice to join the Jewish people, while still yet, there is fast growing group among the nations [the Noahides] who have attached themselves Israel, to hear what their obligation is before the Creator.
To do this, such a person must “boldly go”.
Its not an easy thing to walk away from ones past religion, and spiritual upbringing to go to the Jews and ask them to teach the truth of the Creator.
It takes a boldness to admit to yourself, that you were taught and believed religious lies.
It takes boldness to walk away from it and to change your life.
It takes boldness to walk in the commandments of the Creator.
It takes boldness to stand before the Creator and tell Him that you will keep His commandments because He has told you to and not for any reward.
It takes boldness to walk alone with the Creator.
It takes boldness to boldly go.
the ancient frontier,
this is the voyage of a Noahide.
To keep the commandments of the Creator,
to start a new life and new purpose,
to boldly go where you have not
One thought on “To Boldly Go…”
I agree that it takes boldness to follow the 7 Laws. I doubt that anyone follows them without asking for a reward. We deserve HaShem’s reward. And we will get it.
