The falling away was falling to idols and that thing is going on in the church today. Look at this video, how many crucifixes do you see behind you…even in the window behind the curtain…looks like little crosses lined up there. For what? The cross is symbolic of death…so Yahushua was killed there; however where in the word does it say to worship the cross….the power is in the resurrection.
Paul says in Philippians “What is more, I even count all to be loss because of the excellence of the knowledge of the Messiah Ha Mashiac my Master for whom I have suffered the loss of all, and count them as a refuse in order to gain the Messiah, and be found in Him not having my own righteousness, which is of the law (of the law meaning those things done found in the law), but that which is through…

“And it came to be in those days when there was no sovereign in Yisra’el, that there was a certain Lewite sojourning on the further side of the mountains of Ephrayim. And he took for himself a concubine from Beyth Lehem in Yahudah. And his concubine committed whoring against him, and went away from to her father’s house at Beyth Lehem in Yahudah, and was there four new moons of days. And her husband arose and went after her, to speak to her heart and bring her back, having his servant and a couple of donkeys with him. And she brought him into her father’s house. And the father of the young woman saw him, and he was glad to meet him. And his father in law, the young woman’s father, took hold of him, and he dwelt with him three days. And they ate and drank and spent the nights there. And it came to be on the fourth day that they arose early in the morning. And he prepared to leave, but the young woman’s father said to his son in law, ‘refresh your heart with piece of bread, and afterwards go your way…” (Judges 19: 1-5)
There is plenty to talk about here, because there are misconceptions about divorce and adultery and all types of reasons why people split which are thought to be biblical but are not because the truth has been tainted. First, I would like to pay mention to the reasons why Yahuwah might allow a divorce in the first place. Many people claim adultery in the sense that someone married sleeps with another outside the marriage; as like in this instance. Also the word seems to back up that claim because Yahushua says that adultery is permissible in matters where adultery has transpired; this is truth but not in the way we think. We see here that the text relates an instance saying, “And his concubine committed whoring against him.” To soothe your mind, yes, a concubine is a wife and not a mistress as is taught at church. The difference, in this wife is that she has no dowry; or was not endowed by her betrothed which means that he has no money. In this instance, it is the man who supplies the means of support and it is the case that he being a ‘sojourner’ most likely had nothing to give her. Hence, the couple was poor as are many of us today in societies standards…not poor in spirit but in want of some things.
The text says that she “whored against him…” Hence, is the case with some of us as women who find it difficult to stay with a man who isn’t greatly endowed with material goods; meaning doesn’t have a six figure income, a large bank account or who doesn’t drive a nice car, or isn’t dressed as stylishly as some of these people we see at the local churches and most certainly like those who lead our flocks.
It is no wonder then that our marriages are in trouble. Look at what we are comparing our men to. It is the case that in real life, not dream life, that we must begin to take an honest look to see if this is fair.
Is the case that many leaders are purposely steering our women away from good hard working men?
The text says, “And her husband arose and went after her, to speak to her heart and bring her back.” I have to say that this is proof of love…how many men if that woman cheated would take her back? Men are not as tolerant as women in this area…and in those days when a woman “went a whoring” as this word speaks they were abandoned. Hence, is why Yahushua said, “Whoever puts away his wife he should give her a certificate of divorce lest you cause her to commit adultery.” (Matthew 5:31)
Look at this:
If a man takes a wife and shall marry her, then it shall be, if she finds no favour in his eyes because he has found a matter of uncoveredness in her, and he shall write her a certificate of divorce, and put it in her hand and send her out of his house and she became another man’s wife and he writes her a certificate of divorce or when the latter husband dies, then the former husband cannot take her back to be his wife after she has been defiled, for that would be an abomination to Yahuwah. And do not bring sin on the land which Yahuwah your Elohim is giving you for an inheritance. (Deuteronomy 24:1-4).
Ladies, this is an issue that many of us face. Not many of our men are well endowed with finances and work hard for what they get. We have been swayed and mesmorized with these messages of prosperity but Yahuwah is saying in this hour this is not the way. In fact, we have a word which speaks of the two walking together in agreement. We are greedy and lustful, some of us, spending money before it is made.
This is not about men who don’t try…this is about those who get up and make it happen every single day, about those who make an honest means to an end. We must let go of these fairy tale dreams and face the fact that Daddy loves him and the only way to be prosperous is to stay in his plan.
Good word. Praying for every marriage to be sustained Yah’s way. Hang in there.
Torah teaching in the house of Yahuwah.
Watch: Straitway Israelite Wedding
The Great Revelation of who the blacks in America really are and notation of how the land of Israel was taken from them because of idol worship which still prevails in the Christian teachings of the day.
Deuteronomy 28, denotes the curses which are the result of disobedience to the Laws found in the Book of Moses (Torah).
Yahweh is calling us back. Come from among them, that is the world of idol worship.
Watch: THE ISRAELITES ARE BLACK: THE CURSES
I tell you that in times past I have had great fondness for the King James version of the bible, but tonight I found out that it is weak in context compared to richness of the text with the words and names restored. Hence, I found out the Lady Elect has a name too. What do you know? Allow me to introduce her to you.
The elder, to a chosen Kuria and her children, whom I love in truth, because of the truth that stays in us and shall be with us forever.
Favor, compassion,peace be with you from Elohim the Father and from Master Yahushua Messiah, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
And now I ask you Kuria, not as though I wrote a fresh command to you but that which we have had in the beginning, that we love one another. (v. 1-3)
I’ll pause there for a minute because in Henry dictionary the writer describes the Lady Elect as a woman and her children and I would like to take this time to note that there have been several women mentioned by name in text and their plights or their duties or their devotion mentioned without fail which left no room to a guess as to who they were. So, in this instance…the so called woman has a name; Kuria. However, Kuria, I found upon research is not a woman as in female but a tribe in Africa.
What? Someone intentionally did not want us to know that this was so.
Here is what Henry says, ” The saluted – a noble Christian matron, and her children: To the elect lady and her children. A lady, a person of eminent quality for birth, education, and estate. It is well that the gospel ha got among such. It is a pity but lords and ladies should be acquainted with the Lord Christ and his religion. They owe more to him than others do; though usually not many noble are called. Here is a pattern for persons of quality of the same sex. The elect lady; not only a choice one, but one chosen of God. It is lovely and beautiful to see ladies, by holy walking, demonstrate their election of God. And her children; probably the lady was a widow; she and her children then are the principal part of the family, and so this may be styled an economical epistle.” (Henry, 2013)
Look at this:
The Kuria are an ethnic and linguistic group resident in the Tarime, Musoma, Bunda and Serengeti districts of the Mara Region in Northern Tanzania, and the west and east districts of the former Nyanza Province in southwest Kenya. In 2006 the Kuria population was estimated to number 609,000, with 435,000 living in Tanzania and 174,000 in Kenya.
The Kuria people are mainly agriculturalists and pastoralists, with the Kenyan Kurians leaning towards agriculture and the Tanzanian Kurians more towards pastoralism. The Kurians in the Serengeti district are distinctly pastoralist.
The Kuria are closely related to the Kisii people of Kenya both in language and physique. They are said[by whom?] to have been one people until a vicious attack by the Maasai in the early 19th century scattered both populations in different directions. This apartness has led to the formation of distinct dialects which are clearly understood by both peoples. The Kuria people are divided into about 16 “subtribes” or clans, namely: Nyabasi, Bakira, Bairege, Bagumbe (who reside in both Kenyan and Tanzanian districts), Batimbaru, Banyamongo, Bakenye, Baikoma, Bamerani, as well as several others. All this subtribes or clans are present in the kisii tribe of Kenya.
The Kuria tribe is also related to the Zanaki tribe of the Mara Province in Tanzania. They share some cultural aspects.
Verse 7, “Because many who are leading astray went out into the world who do not confess Yahushua Messiah as coming in the flesh. This one is he who is leading astray and is the Anti-Messiah. See to yourselves that we do not lose what we worked for, but that we might receive a complete reward.
Everyone who is transgressing and not staying in the teaching of Messiah does not possess Elohim.
One particular question asked is put in the premise of working with someone in the corporate area saying the higher the scale the more problems arise not only with offenses done but with need to forgive. I believe we have to recognize the the root cause here.
First let us take a way the titles, because people are people and sin is sin whether or not they own a particular title, and secondly let us evaluate some of the things people do…there are two entities always at work. They are need and want. Hence, we have two kinds of people; that is one who has a need and another who wants something. They do not work simultaneously or go hand in hand in all cases but are in association with one another in all things concerning them.
On the bottom rung of life is the person in need. Need is need; every one needs money we cannot live a healthy or fruitful life without it. We can exist without it but we need money to survive…there are needs to be met; shelter, food, adequate clothing, personal care and hygiene, medical, dental and more. However, needs are not (as some think) entertainment, expensive cars, large homes or extravagant dinners out and so on. So here we have a person who needs and does not have…we can say that these are basic; however, when we don’t have if we are not in the right mind to obtain these people tend to lie, steal and manipulate others to get them. Furthermore, add to that lust and greed and you get another people altogether. Lust and greed kill will kill their neighbor to have it. Lust and greed sells drugs, lust and greed robs, breaks and enters and lust and greed invades homes.
Keep in mind this is the lower rung of a social spectrum and at the other end we see that people are less needy by design. How the rich get richer and move back and forth through the corporate plane is they invest money on something the lower rung does whether it is working at McDonald’s or selling drugs on the street this is how it happens to make them money. Notably, we must look at the fact that a person who has come from the lower wrung, educated themselves might not have the mind as like some one who was born into wealth, and or, someone who didn’t have to face adversity throughout their lives. I will say ones moral values are different. The person coming from the lower rung had a need to befriend for intimacy’s sake while the other coming from the further end of the spectrum befriends for gain.
Is this right thinking? Well to them it is how they were raised and we must look at why we have chosen to be in the presence of those who are greedy for gain.
Ask yourself: What is my motive for being here? Is this what Elohim has planned for me? Did I even ask?
Now then, since you’re there and we have the clue, now, that these people are most likely less inclined to seek truth and less inclined to care about you or anyone else who they deem a threat then we can gather that these people are still liars, manipulators and thieves; and, still are prone even more so to greed and lust.
How to forgive from the bottom rung up?
It all boils down to asking and seeking? Because we don’t have what it takes on our own to have humility. Humility seems to be a bad word in the kingdom because we worry that people are out to get us and will walk over us if we submit to someone. I have to say that it is not about us but what Yahuwah Elohim might be trying to do with us. I do agree however that we should not allow people to take advantage of us,and neither to walk over us. We have to know that some people are users no matter what end of the spectrum they live on. Knowing who we live and work with helps in deciding if we can remain in the same position in our minds. We can’t change people, but we have authority and help to change ourselves.
For your hearing:
“Oh every one who thirsts, come to the waters. And you who have no silver, come buy and eat. Come buy wine and milk without silver and without price. Why do you weigh out silver for what is not bread, and your labor for what does not satisfy? Listen, Listen to Me, and eat what is good, and let your being delight itself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear so that your being lives. And let Me make an everlasting covenant with you. The trustworthy loving commitments of Dawid. (Isaiah 55: 1-3)
