Welcome to the Hebrew Revolution
The First Covenant - also known as the Rainbow Covenant, following the Book of Genesis, chapter 9 - is the Outpatient Department, basically, for the entire Hebrew Revolution (that is, the Biblical System, the Torah or Way of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Moses, David, all the Biblical prophets, and the Children of Israel), the Golden Tradition, the Ancient Way, and the Path of the Righteous. The Torah - the "Guidance" - is for everyone.
This movement here is what the Nazis tried to kill.
The Universe didn't "just happen." God is real - He is a living "personality," an intelligent individual, even though He gets a bad rap from people refusing to learn anything about Who He actually is - and Creation is real. When a tree falls in a forest, He hears. NONE of the Old Testament prophets was a liar. The human race and the Jewish people are real. Animals are real. The world is NOT an illusion.
The Children of Israel - in the Bible, the Jews are the "elder brother" of the human race (Exodus 4:22) - are God's "peculiar instrument" (Exodus 19:5). The mission: elevating mankind. The Hebrew Revolution is the principal vehicle by which human beings overcome the cruel, racist, xenophobic, superstitious, humorless, unjust impulses in human history and nature.
If you think that a loving God Who is involved with His Creation and concerned with every person, force and particle within it is wishful or too good to be true, we have news for you and suggest that you go here. If you think religion is "opium for the masses," and that the mission of Israel and the Teaching of Israel (the "Torah") in the world is reactionary, irrational or stale, we have news for youhere.
Israel's obligation to transmit God's Universal laws to others is much of the reason, Israel's Sages wrote, for the Jews' dispersion among the nations. [From Rainbow Covenant]
The First or Rainbow Covenant and all the wisdom in it is the principal pathway for Noahides, "Gentiles," or Non-Jews to approach and relate to God.
That is what our book and this foundation are all about.
Every genuinely moral law under Heaven follows from the principle enunciated in what the Bible, in the Book of Genesis, reveals as Universal Revelation: that God made every person "in His Image" - that is, as an infinitely sacred being, in some profound respects literally like God.
The ‘Golden Rule’ (Do unto others….) directly follows. Then come the Seven Universal Commandments: the wealth of wisdom of the Noahide Covenant, the First Covenant, Rainbow Covenant, and Noahism ("No'achism" and "Noahidism").
We wrote a highly regarded book about the Universal Covenant - the First or Rainbow Covenant - and the great universal moral laws, and the Torah system generally: Rainbow Covenant: Torah and the Seven Universal Laws.
