Man’s quest to inhabit the earth has taken him on a journey across many lands and seas. As he trekked through unfamiliar territories and sailed across the oceans, there became a need to develop navigational tools; examples of these tools are, the compass, astrolabe, sextant, maps and now the Global Positioning System (GPS).
Not only will these tools help guide you to a particular destination, if you stray off course, they can be used to find your way back.
Divine Navigational System (DNS)
Did you know that the Creator supplied all humanity with its own navigational system, a system that will assist us in navigating life on earth?
Sadly, the history of man has shown us that the DNS given to us by our Creator has been unutilized. An examination of the societies and world in which we live in, will quickly reveal to us the effects of navigating life on the earth without the supplied navigational system.
By now you probably have some questions like, “What is the DNS and where can it be located?”
The DNS is one of humanities greatest treasures but over time that treasure became lost to the majority of earth’s inhabitants, like a sunken treasure at sea.
What and Where is the DNS
The best and easiest way to describe the DNS is that it is a code. A systematic system of Divine instructions on ethics, morals and proper human discipline.
Today it is located within the body of the Hebrew Scriptures called the Torah.
Through the use of the gift of free will from our Creator, over time man chose his own path of navigating life on earth thus the DNS became neglected, rejected and forgotten. It was no longer passed down as a human tradition from family to family.
Approximately 2400 years after the creation of Adam, the Creator brought the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to the mountain of Sinai. It was there the children of Israel/Jacob became a nation, a nation of priest for the world. Through the Creator’s servant Moses, He gave this new nation a body of instructions. Within this body of instructions i.e. the Torah, it contains the instructions for the operation of the new nation of Israel and a reaffirmation of the operation for the rest of the nations.
Throughout history, treasure hunting has been a fascination for many people. Movies and shows like Indian Jones and The Curse of Oak Island arouse our curiosity for those things that have been lost or hidden . Young and old alike buy metal detectors and the first place they go is the yard around the house to see what they could find. There are some that make it treasure hunting a life long occupation. I once met a man who travelled and searched for lost camp fires of the US Civil War and have them documented.
The wisest man that has ever lived, King Solomon of Israel actually inspires us to be treasure hunters.
Proverbs 2:1-5 "My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the HaShem, and discover the knowledge of God."
Are you ready to go on a treasure hunt? Join me in the hunt and the unearthing the Divine Navigational System.
