Are you familiar with the Disney movies about the Pirates of the Caribbean? In these movies, if you haven’t seen them, the main character played by Johnny Depp is Captain Jack Sparrow, who owns a very special compass. Instead of pointing to the north, his compass points the way to whatever his heart desires.

We all have our own compass; it’s not the kind that you carry in your pocket, but the kind that you have in your heart. It is your Moral Compass, also called your conscience, and for those who have confessed their sins and accepted Yeshua as their Messiah, it is called the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit.)
Everyone has this compass, but not everyone’s compass always points “north”, meaning dependably leading us in a godly and righteous way.
By the way, did you know that the compass points to the magnetic north and not to the North Pole? Depending on where you are in the world, magnetic north and true north may be quite a few degrees apart. That is why maps have a Declination Diagram on them, which gives you the difference, in degrees, between true and magnetic north, so that you can adjust your compass to point you in the right direction.
The Declination Diagram we have for our moral compass is called the Bible. In that book, especially in the first 5 books (called the Torah), God tells us exactly how to adjust our moral compass to bring us to his true north, i.e. righteous living.
Unfortunately, both Judaism and Christianity have demagnetized many moral compasses, pointing them away from the Messiah or the Torah. In Judaism, we have been told that Jesus was a traitor to Judaism and created a new religion that hates and kills Jews and that any Jew who believes in Jesus can no longer be a Jew but is a Christian.
The traditional Christian teachings are that Jesus did away with the law, the Jews are no longer the chosen people (this is called Replacement Theology), the Holy Days God said we should observe aren’t for Christians, and many other lies which are designed to separate Christianity from its Jewish roots.
These teachings have made people’s moral compasses point in the wrong direction, effectively blinding them to the proper path to travel.
And when the blind lead the blind, they both fall into a hole (Matthew 15:14).
When your compass isn’t registering correctly, the further you have to go, the farther away from your goal you will be when the trip is over. And considering today most people live into their late 70s and early 80s, if your moral compass isn’t pointing to God correctly you will find yourself totally out of his presence when you die.
So make sure your compass is pointing correctly; if you have had it demagnetized by Christianity pointing you away from the Torah or Judaism pointing you away from Messiah Yeshua, make sure you adjust according to the Declination Diagram, which is the Bible.
And I mean the entire Bible, Genesis through Revelation.
Read it daily and constantly so that your compass will adjust itself to God’s true north, and you will find yourself in his presence when it is time to turn the equipment in.
Thank you for being here and please subscribe to my YouTube channel and website, check out my books (I am working on a 4th book which is going to debunk many of the traditional lies about the Jewish Messiah), and share these messages with everyone you know to help this ministry grow. I never ask for money, just the opportunity to give people the proper “dope” about the Lord and the Messiah so that when they decide what to believe, they can make an informed decision.
That’s it for today, so l’hitraot and Baruch HaShem!
