16- A distinction
between Hebrews and Jews:
chose the Hebrews and made a covenant with them that they would be
His people forever, and He stood firm in His Covenant. Hebrew means
"beyond, those who have overcome their lower natures, or the
Children of Israel
struggle with God)." These people have been and forever will be
<2>Whoever overcomes the world (its excess attraction,
Maya) is an Elected One.
They have always been reincarnated to struggle for His Purpose.
<3>However, "Jew" is a term that was used later on to identify
people from Judah. This name is given to those people who
God chose to set an example
for the rest of humanity of the truth of His
Divine Justice, and to show how severe He is in punishment and
how merciful He is in reward.
<4>The question might be asked of how the
Divine justice could be
God punishes the children
of the sinned ancestors.
<5>The answer is that those who are incarnated in the Jewish
community at the time of punishment are not the same as Hebrews (Elected
Ones) who had not done any
sin. These punished people were those who had sinned in their
previous lives, even if they had not been one of the
Jews before. <6>If
a person in the Jewish community had done good deeds in his life, he
would not have been reborn in that community at the time of
punishment, and/or he would not be punished. <7>The justice
of God can only be seen and
explained if we realize the Laws of
<8>At the time of punishment, those
Jews in the past who
changed the Scriptures, killed the
Prophets, or others with heavy
sins, were reincarnated in
the Jewish community to show the human that misdeeds will result in
punishment. <9>At the time of redemption (given another chance)
those who were purified and those with good deeds would be born to
this community. However, as history shows, some again would fail and
the cycle of punishment and redemption goes on as it is.
