Faith Leaders Gather in Sinai to "Receive New Ten Commandments"

Religious leaders have gathered in Sinai to receive a new "Climate Justice Ten Commandments." 

The gathering coincides with the 40,000 attendees who have also flocked, in their private jets, to the Sinai Desert to attend the global COP27 climate conference.

Quoting Genesis 1:26, climate activist religious leaders claim because the nations are failing to solve the climate crisis they have been called to lead the world in redeeming, restoring, and sustaining God's Creation.

This new "interfaith alliance" is weaving a few threats of truth into the old fabric of Gaia worship.

Even the pope is weighing in.

Be informed, not misled.

Some 40,000 attendees have flocked to the Sinai Desert including over 100 world leaders as well as leaders in business and other sectors. Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and other religious figures will participate in a UN conference on climate change that is currently taking place. 

In conjunction with the UN event, a group of faith leaders are taking an alternative approach, seeking a faith-based solution to the ecological crisis by promoting the “Ten Principles for Climate Justice” in a global initiative. 

The multifaith initiative- led by the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development (ICSD), The Elijah Interfaith Institute, and the Peace Department – is part of the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27), which is taking place in the Sinai Peninsula, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from November 6-18.

According to the Interfaith Center, the location of COP27 is especially meaningful because the Sinai Desert is “a place of revelation in the collective consciousness of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and others. It is a site for turning to God and receiving God’s message,” as they explained in a press release. 

This past Sunday, the organization held “Climate Repentance Ceremonies” and “put forth a prophetic interreligious call to action.”

The call.

The partnering organizations initially intended to hold the Climate Repentance Ceremony and Ten Commandments events at Jebel Musa in the southern Sinai Peninsula. The area is traditionally believed to be the location of the biblical Mount Sinai, a site of great significance in the Bible and considered holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Unfortunately, the leaders say, the Egyptian government chose not to permit the main interfaith event to be held at Jabal Musa due to security concerns so the central venue for Sunday’s events was changed to London.

Concurrent faith-based events will be held at Mt. Abu India, Rishikesh in the Himalayas, New York City, Ecuador, Germany, Vienna, Salt Lake City, Mount St. Francis in Indiana and Australia, joining faith leaders from many different religions including Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and others. 

The organizers also urged houses of worship around the world to join in at the same time on Sunday with prayer and study focused on this “transformative moment to protect our environment.” 

Rabbi Yonatan Neril, the founder and Executive Director of  The Interfaith Center, explained:

“Some people believe religion is separate and distinct from ecology or care for God’s creation,” he said. “Were it not for the receiving of the Hebrew Bible on Mt. Sinai, Jewish tradition teaches, God would have returned the world to chaos and void. Applying the teachings of the Hebrew Bible to stewardship of God’s creation is not just an idea for today, but essential for a future in which we achieve a balanced, worldwide ecosystem and thrive on a planet viable for all life.”

Among climate experts and environmental activists, there are some who claim that the destructive process of climate change is irreversible, but Rabbi Neril noted that the Bible teaches otherwise.

“Many people fear that humans have irrevocably destroyed the ecology of ‘Eden’ on earth,” Rabbi Neril explained. “But God created the world out of love for life on earth.”

Neril says, “We need to change the operating system that humanity generated and is degrading God’s creation,” he said. “We need to switch from greed, short-term thinking, and individualistic behavior to spiritual satisfaction, long-term thinking, and altruism. And by doing that we will address the symptoms of the problem and manifest a new earth. May God help us.”

Rabbi Neril sees faith and religion as playing essential roles in the solution.

“Leveraging faith communities to move the needle around climate advocacy is a deeply needed and worthwhile effort,” he explained. “While the national political culture is so divided, faith is this common ground that can soften the boundaries and open hearts and minds.”

The action.

The Jerusalem Post says, "The UN Climate Change Conference, in proximity to Mount Sinai, could be the prime time for the force of religion to speak climate truth to dirty power. For the world, and for Israel."

"Moses led the people out of the camp toward God, and they took their places at the foot of the mountain. Now Mount Sinai was all in smoke, for Adonai had come down upon it in fire; the smoke rose like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain trembled violently. The blare of the horn grew louder and louder. As Moses spoke, God answered him in thunder" (Exodus 19:19-20).

Quoting Exodus19:19-20, Rabbi Yosef Israel Abramowitz says it hit him like a bolt of lightning as he was participating in an all-night Torah study session. In the wee hours of the holiday Shavuot (Pentecost) we were celebrating the receiving of the Torah on Mount Sinai approximately 3700 years ago.

This newly minted religious movement then begins to emerge.

"What an indulgence," he thought to himself, "to sit here and glean lessons from ancient texts while God's world burns at the hands of the Creator's creatures."

"Perhaps, at the genesis of Creation," he explained, "the prosecuting angels had indeed been correct to lobby God not to create humanity, with our evil inclination and freedom of choice."

After a lengthy introduction to a number of the actors involved in this new religious movement, Yosef says they don't expect any of the nations to take any serious actions that will make a difference. He and others then summon divine intervention---noting his memory of being at a Madonna concert in Paris where she was singing "Like a Prayer" as if it were Moses's Song of the Sea."

This interfaith alliance has the texture of a one-world religion. It is a common cause issue among globalists. Secularists would welcome it because it is a counterfeit of Christianity but is not atheist. Yet it is godless in its mission.

The leaders have written a new version of the Ten Commandments---and are saying they have experienced miracles in the formation of these new Commandments.

They say, "Our mission is to solve coordination failures at scale, and we see this Sinai activation as a stepping stone to a global coordination system where religion and science and eventually politics can work together to guide humanity toward a brighter future."

This sounds like a plan described in the book of Revelation when the Anti-Christ establishes himself claiming to be the solution to all the world's problems.

This is a time of confusion. Even the pope seemed a little confused in his statements on climate change.

Pope Francis warned of false “prophets of doom” Sunday while simultaneously threatening a looming climate change “crisis” that could wreak untold damage on humanity.

The pope sent out a series of mixed messages in his yearly homily for the World Day of the Poor, spreading intense fear of possible climate change disasters yet cautioning against “prophets of doom,” the “sirens of populism,” and self-interested “false messiahs.”
