HOME DISCIPLESHIP OR EUNUCH MINISTRY?
#TOLD
TRUTH OVER LIES DAILY

Q: “The best disciples are the ones you raise in your home” is your opinion. Where is your scripture to back that one up? Most of the best disciples of Jesus I know didn’t grow up in a Christian home. Jesus said that it was best not to marry and to just focus on ministry in Matthew 19:10-12.

A: Yes, Jesus did speak about eunuch’s in the kingdom of heaven that chose not to be married but to focus on accelerating things in the Kingdom. But it was Peter that said it was best not to marry, and that was in context of a question about divorce.

Paul did say it was better not to marry, but that was His opinion, not the Lord’s commandment (1 Corinthians 7).

Jesus would never disagree with His own Father. It was God’s plan to produce Godly seed thru marriages (Gen 1, Mal 2). When Peter said its best not to marry if you can’t divorce, that didn’t change the purpose or the doctrine of the Father or the Son.

Jesus did not agree with Him, He just said “only a few can receive this saying” (that it’s better not to marry if you can’t get a divorce.)

Saying that some are able to receive eunuchhood is not the same as saying that eunuchhood is best. It’s an option but not the best option. Remember the context is a question about divorce.

My belief is that Jesus never contradicted the previously expressed purpose of the Father.

Both marriage and singleness are options. The Fathers original purpose is procreation of Godly seed thru family. This is a reflection of Elohim who is Himself a family.

If you were born without procreation tools, or someone cutoff your procreation tools, or you prefer not to go thru the trouble of marriage and put all your energy in other forms of kingdom discipleship, or you’d rather prevent the possibility of damaging the kingdom with divorce or adultery, you can make yourself a eunuch and refuse to be married.

Whatever gift you have, you should receive it. One is not better than the other. The Son is always one with the Father, and Apostolic Teachings are always in harmony with Christ. That’s always the way I interpret hard scriptures.

The idea that marriage is the failure to do what God really really wants – only if you are not holy enough – is a dangerous idea that has led to a lot of ministry confusion, a lot of bad marriages, and a lot of damaged, ungodly children.

When I said “the best disciples are the ones you raise in your own home”, its absolutely true, because discipleship is based on living life together. Your children absorb most of your teachings and your life.

Even if you are single, its best to teach your disciples via life on life and house-to-house based ministry like Jesus and the Apostles did.

They did the exact same things that God first instructed the families of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to do in their homes and as they traveled and multiplied His Kingdom. That was done for a reason. See Deuteronomy 11:19:

Deuteronomy 11:19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

– The Father’s Creation ordinance of godly family can spread the kingdom of God just as effectively as unmarried people, separated spouses, and widows that focus on prayer, fasting, and discipleship.

– Both families and singles have an important and powerful role in the Kingdom of God.

– In the New Covenant, Godly familes and Undistracted singles come together to serve the Lord and form Congregations/Ecclessias/Assemblies that produce Fruit in the Kingdom of God.
