Weak Link: Divorce & Remarriage

The Devil is creating WEAK Families and WEAK Congregations really easily.

All satan has to do is introduce false teaching on divorce & remarriage thru lying seminaries and unlearned & unstable pastors.

Now we have powerless churches full of adultery and confusion. I’ve personally seen families, churches, movements, revivals, friendships, partnerships, and ministries either completely broken, or rendered impotent and useless, over this One issue.

YAHUSHA (JESUS THE KING) TAUGHT THIS FOR A STRONG REASON!

Mark 10:11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

ENMITY and ENVY go hand in hand

ENMITY and ENVY go hand in hand…
If you’ve always got (real or imaginary) Beef, Drama, and Malice with other people (imaginary haters) or people Groups… it’s because you want what someone else has!
It’s ENVY that Drives Selfish Ambition and Strife.
Be CONTENT and SATISFIED and PRODUCTIVE with what YAH has given you, and Honor Your own FATHER and your own MOTHER.
Be Productive with your own genetic blessing and/or training.
Stay away from those that consistently walk in, live on, and thrive off of Enmity and Malice!

You Can Celebrate Passover and/or Feast of Unleavened Bread with your Family or Congregation

You can celebrate the Passover and/or Feast of Unleavened Bread with the father of your household as Israel did, or with the disciples of your Congregation as Jesus the Messiah did.

 

The Passover represents the merciful washing of sin, and the Feast of Unleavened Bread represents our vigilantly guarding ourselves from sin. New Covenant footwashing with Bread & Cup (Communion) is connected to Passover and links the two concepts together.

 

  1. Passover Feast: (14th Day of Abib, Hebrew New Year, Springtime):

 

  • Eat a supper with lamb meat, to remember the death of the Lamb of God that takes away our sins. The blood of the Lamb washes us from our sins and protects us from the curse of eternal death.
  • Eat the lamb with bitter herbs and unleavened bread. The bitter herbs represent the suffering and obedience of the Lamb. The unleavened bread represents the sinlessness of the Lamb.
  • New Covenant Bread & Cup: Eat the bread to symbolize and remember the Body of Jesus that was broken. Drink the cup to symbolize and remember his blood that washes our sins and gives us a new covenant.
  • New Covenant Footwashing: Wash the feet of your family and the feet of the saints. This symbolizes that we have to consistently serve one another and help each other keep our “walks” clean – staying clean from sin.
  • We can be washed by the blood of the Lamb, but we also must wash each other’s feet with the water of the Word.

 

  1. 7-Day Feast of Unleavened Bread: (Days 15-21 Abib, Hebrew New Year, Springtime):

 

  • Eat Unleavened Bread for 7 days (No regular bread with yeast). This symbolizes that we don’t allow sin to spread unchecked in our families or congregations.
  • Our Lamb was spotless, and we will not allow our families or our assemblies to be infiltrated with fornicators, drunkards, verbally abusive, or greedy, or idolatrous, or malicious or hateful people.
  • The First Day is a ceremonial Sabbath where we do no work unless it’s what we need to eat.
  • The Last Day is also a ceremonial Sabbath where we do no work unless it’s what we need to eat.

 

 

Scriptures to Read ALOUD as You Celebrate the Passover and/or Unleavened Bread with your Family or with your New Covenant Assembly.

 

Leviticus 23:

5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord’s passover.

6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the Lord: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

7 In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

Exodus 12:

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,

2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the Lord’s passover.

12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.

13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

 

Luke 22:

15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

 

1 Corinthians 11

23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.

30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.

 

John 13:

1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him;

3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?

7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.

15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

 

Exodus 12

15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

16 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.

17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.

18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.

20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.

 

1 Corinthians 5:

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

 

TAKE HEED HOW YOU HEAR

What you Listen to Determines Who You Are::: Balanced Fruitful Teaching is not sensational so it tends not to attract or retain the carnal minded.

– Immature people follow immature “chase the crowd” relevance teaching.

– Selfish people follow selfish “me & mine” covetous teaching.

– Hateful or wounded people follow hateful “us vs them” enmity teaching.

– Corrupt people follow corrupt “power, entertainment or politics” influence teaching.

– High minded people follow prideful “intellectual battle” argumentative teaching.

Balanced and fruitful Scriptural teaching tends to produce balanced, fruitful people who repent from their own sins, suffer in obedience while they serve others, and patiently bear fruit that remains.

Luke 8:18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

Authority is always GOOD unless it’s certainly BAD

Authority is not generally bad. AUTHORITY IS generally GOOD and BENEFICIAL, unless it consistently executes evil actions.

Godly Authority is beneficial for protection, guidance, and provision. Every immature person hates Male Family Authority, Spiritual Authority, and Government Authority… until they need protection.

Evil Authority attacks instead of protects. Every honest person hates Male Family Authority, Spiritual Authority, and Government Authority that is abusive, selfish, and evil.

Tare Seeds Defined

Anytime God releases truth, satan immediately sends counterfeit messengers to water down, profane, and commercialize His Word so it is effectively stolen right from our hearts and made powerless. #tareseeds

Marketing the Flock or Serving the Flock?

Entrepreneurship is a blessing… but it was NEVER meant to REplace or DISplace Congregational Servanthood.

Make not my Father’s house a house of merchandise!

John 2:16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.

Don’t make His saints into your merchandising marketplace either!

2 Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Its biblical to receive tithes, offerings, and gifts… but don’t use the saints as your own personal product marketing plan.

Serve the flock, lead by example, and teach the Word.

The Reward of Congregational Servanthood is eternal and much greater than the temporary rewards of selling and marketing.
