613 Laws: Shaky Excuse

Standard Shaky Christian Excuse for Lawlessness:

“Keeping the Law means keeping all 613 Mosaic Commandments. Therefore since Jesus fulfilled the Law, we don’t have to obey God’s Commandments anymore.”

If keeping the Law means keeping all 613 Mosaic Laws why did God forget to tell His Son this? Are they divided or are they One?

Here is a Scripture where Jesus clearly elevated Creation Law and the 10 Commandments over one of the precepts that Moses wrote for the Transgressions of Israel.

Mark 10:4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
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.

The Truth is: In the Kingdom of God we fulfill the righteousness of the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants by the Spirit, and we EXCEED the Righteousness of the Pharisees by the Spirit!

JESUS UNDERSTOOD HOW TO RIGHTLY DIVIDE THE WORD! The Spirit and the Son and the Father AGREE! God will give you an UNDERSTANDING!

Please stop trying to teach what you do not understand! You will be held accountable.

Jesus Prophesied the Destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70AD. It happened.

If you are still following and choosing Mosaic Ordinances over the clear Commandments of the Father and the clear Commandments of the Son… you will have no excuses on the day of Judgement. Rightly Divide the Word!

Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

2 Public Events in a Marriage

Romans 7:2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.

1 Corinthians 7:39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.

Tough Issues Show who is in Kingdom Order vs Emotional Disorder

It’s on the tough issues (abortion, divorce&remarriage, racism, politics, prophecy, holiness, etc) that we find out who serves/pleases YAH vs who serves/pleases man.

And Hear this – No offense. Not everyone is called to lead. This is okay and normal! We LOVE your gift, we NEED your gift. Yes you have a powerful purpose FROM GOD. That doesn’t mean your gift is to lead the flock. Everyone has a role but not everyone cannot set doctrinal order.

Some will need to follow the flock and the shepherds and serve God under submission instead of coming up with emotion based doctrines that lead people to hell.

This is why the congregations cannot be led by women, or by men with effeminate thought patterns. Assemblies must be led by strong but compassionate teams of men who love the Word more than they love their own lives!

James 3: 1 My brethren, BE NOT MANY MASTERS, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

1 Timothy 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer NOT a woman to TEACH, nor to USURP AUTHORITY over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

Song of Solomon 1:8 If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the FOOTSTEPS of the FLOCK, and feed thy kids beside the SHEPHERDS’ tents.

Acts 15:26
Men that have HAZARDED their LIVES for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 55:7 Let the WICKED forsake HIS WAY, and the UNRIGHTEOUS man HIS THOUGHTS: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are MY WAYS HIGHER than YOUR WAYS, and MY THOUGHTS than YOUR THOUGHTS.

Romans 11:33
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how UNSEARCHABLE are his JUDGMENTS, and his ways PAST FINDING OUT!

SHOULD WE PAY TITHES TODAY?

Q: Should we pay tithes still today?? What about people who say that the Levitical priesthood has ended?

A: Yes you should, Jesus said this plain as day in Matthew 23:23.

Matthew 23:23

23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

 

But just make sure its being given to the right things based on the bible not being wasted on ineccessant marketing and endless building funds by people who manipulate you for more and more on top. Give as you are led. Tithing is a guideline. A lot of hurt and wounded people throw the baby out with the bathwater. Still be a giver, just make sure you are not contributing to spiritual abuse and error.

Proverbs 3 shows that it is wisdom to give your firstfruits to the Lord. Firstfruits is just a different way of saying tithe, offering. Tithe is a guideline for the amount, Firstfruit is a guideline for the order, offering is a guideline for the heart attitude.

We are all priests and kings in the new covenant, which is why the money in the kingdom is used not just for the preachers and teachers, but also for the needs of the believers as well. The first recorded tithes was not food, it was financial goods, and it was paid to the priest of the Most High God, Melchizedek.  Our priesthood is actually higher than Levites, which the Lord said will never cease anyway.

So, to summarize: Jesus said that tithing should not be undone. It’s not as important as love, justice, faith. But it should be done. (Matthew 23:23). Tithe means 10% and to me its a general guideline for the amount which you should aim to give. It’s wisdom because it helps the poor person not give 50% because he thinks he doesn’t have enough, and it helps the rich person not give 1% because he’s so rich. It’s simply the wisdom of God. You can give sparingly (less) or bountifully (more), as long as you give the amount that you purpose in your heart. The New testament was written with all the wisdom of the Old testament in mind. Acts 15:21 (Moses was taught in every city). It’s not a salvation issue at all, it’s just a wise guideline.

REMARRIAGE WHILE FIRST SPOUSE IS ALIVE?

Q: Does the scripture allow for a divorced person to remarry while their first covenant spouse is alive? Also, do the scriptures found in Matthew 5:32,Matthew 19:3-9 and 1 Corinthians 7:15 give “grounds for divorce”?

A: No the scriptures don’t allow a person to do that in righteousness. It’s called adultery in Romans. When Jesus said “except for fornication” he was speaking specifically to Jews and was referring to those under the law of Moses where if a woman was found not to be a virgin on her wedding night, a man could annul the marriage on the morning after the wedding night. That law doesn’t apply to Gentiles who are not under the ceremonial law that was added for transgressions. That’s why in Mark and Luke there is no such “caveat” for divorce. Also, fornication is not the same as adultery. Fornication is sex before marriage. Adultery is sex outside of a marriage. That also shoots down that false doctrine that Matthew 19 supposedly allows divorce and remarriage. As far as 1 Corinthians 7, it is clear in verse 11 that if you are separated from your spouse “let her remain unmarried”. This false teaching on divorce and remarriage is new and it is false. The better thing to do after a divorce is to commit yourself to the LORD in fasting and prayer and seeking the LORD in ministry and service.

 

WHAT’S GOING ON?

Q: I know the word says we will be attacked, but I alone with others haven’t been saved long enough to not let that flesh flare up. As a body we may not all agree on the same methods, but we respected each other’s differences. I never argued with my COGICS, Lutherans, AME, BAPTIST, etc. Social media has fanned the flames on these differences and I have never seen so many doctrinal battles amongst each other let alone the Hottep/ Woke folks. With all this fighting, the whole purpose of bringing folks to Christ is getting lost. Not sure if this is a question, but I would love to hear your take on the state of things today.

 

A: My take on it is that God is shaking things up. He’s shaking everything that can be shaken both naturally and spiritually. We have to make sure everything we do is founded on the Rock of His Words, and motivated and energized by Love and compassion. If we do those things, then no weapon formed against us shall prosper. Those who do wrong will fade away. Those who do right will be found doing right in the end and get their reward from the ONE KING! Promotion doesn’t come from the East, West, or South, but from the LORD. Keep building on a firm foundation and always be willing to grow. The meek will inherit the earth!

DEUTERONOMY 24 DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE PARADOX?

Q: I listened to your recording about remarriage. In light of your conclusion, how would you interpret or understand deut.24 ? This scripture is either a contradiction or a paradox …I just want to know your thoughts?

A:  Deuteronomy 24 is the scripture Yehusha referrenced when he spoke of the hardness of mens heart. This was part of the ceremonial law added for transgression, not the original 10 Commandments.

 

Deuteronomy 24: 1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife.

Jesus’s word supersedes Moses, especially if we are Christ followers. However that scripture is talking about a divorced woman marrying someone else and then going back to the first man Again. That was defiling the land.

That doesn’t even apply in the new covenant because Jesus reverted marriage back to creation authority where 2 become one until one dies, and divorce and remarriage is adultery.

Matthew 19:8. He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD WE DO COMMUNION?

Q: Communion. Please explain… Should we take communion? How often should we take communion? Should we drink wine / a particular kind of wine…or just grape juice / does it matter? What’s the real reason and why do some churches do it every month?

A: From what I see in the scriptures it’s something taken in conjunction with a meal, and it’s done in remembrance of the death of Christ. There’s not set dates for doing it, it’s just done as often as you wish. In the bible it was bread and wine, people change it to grape juice so they dont drink & drive I guess!

 

IS THERE A SUCH THING AS CHURCH MEMBERSHIP?

Q: Is there a such thing as church membership?

A: So first let’s discuss what a church is, verses what the Body of Christ does:

What does an Assembly do?
Assemble.

What does a Body do?
Stay Connected.

What does a Congregation do?
Congregate.

What does a Church do?
Nothing, because its a building. It’s a place you go, it’s not a living thing.

What do you do in your relationship with Christ’s Body?

The term church (kuriakos) was mistranslated and meant by the Roman Catholic church to cause confusion. The real word is ecclesia, which means Congregation or Assembly. Once you get rid of this confusion, things become less confusing. So to answer your question:

There is no such thing as church membership, in terms of worldly styles of membership, but we do have in the bible:
– Saints that meet at Congregations at Blank’s House

– Deacon/Deaconness Blank who serves the Congregation at Blanks House

– Overseers of the Congregation in such City or Area

We should NOT have country club style memberships or the witchcraft and control:

  • counting people,
  • Abusing people
  • Lording over people
  • seeing people as dollar signs,
  • banning fellowship with people who leave

But there is a certain measure of structure and relationship that Congregations have.

  • Helping a specific congregation
  • Serving a specific congregation (Romans 12)
  • Building up a specific congregation by speaking for the Lord (exhorting, teaching, Romans 12)
  • Hospitality, hosting, serving a specific congregation, deacon, overseer, and area
  • Being connected with, and ministering to traveling apostles, prophets, teachers and evangelists

Also as Jesus demonstrated, paying taxes is biblical as a ministry.

Another thing I would add is that Overseers do have responsibility to purge and remove those from the congregation who don’t repent of sexual sin.

So basically the carnal structures are not of God, Christian ministers are not supposed to be lords over the flock and have gentile style authority.

But there is a Godly relationship and commitment based, family style structure that we must rediscover and rebuild as we colabor and build the Congregation with Him.

Real Talk on Divorce & Remarriage

Matthew 5 on Fornication Explained

Matthew 5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

A key of understanding is that Jesus said the cause was “fornication” not “adultery”

He was referring to the old covenant law… like when Joseph thought Mary had “fornicated” because she was pregnant with Jesus while she was betrothed to Joseph.

In Hebrew culture, the engagement was part of the marriage, so in order to cancel the marriage, you needed divorce. Jesus was not teaching that you can remarry as long as adultery was involved. He was talking about a Jewish marriage being annulled because the wife lied about being a virgin.

Here’s the scripture about fornication that Yahusha (Jesus) referenced. It covers fornication discovered after the betrothal or marriage. Joseph might have wanted to divorce Mary privately because he didn’t want her to be stoned.

Deuteronomy 22: 13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, 14 and give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: 15 then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: 16 and the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; 17 and, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.

 

Matthew 19 on Hardness of Heart Explained

Matthew 19: He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
Here’s the scripture Yahusha referrenced when he spoke of the “hardness of men’s hearts.” This was part of the ceremonial law added for transgression, not the original 10 Commandments.

Deuteronomy 24: 1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife.

Matthew was written to Jews and the author had the laws of Moses in mind. You will not see the fornication clause mentioned in Mark or Luke because those were directed to Gentiles that didn’t have the ceremonial laws of Deuteronomy 22 and Deuteronomy 24 in their marriages.

That’s why Jesus said: “From the beginning it was not so.” Jesus showed us how God sees remarriage as adultery while the spouse is alive. Jesus, being “That Prophet”, was able to supersede the laws added for transgression and hardness of heart, and bring His kingdom back to the laws of Creation.

 

Jesus’ Kingdom Redefines Adultery back to Creation Law

We don’t practice Jewish betrothal laws today. Those are the ceremonial laws that Moses added for transgression. This is how we know that the “fornication exception” doesn’t exist in the Kingdom of Jesus.

That’s why there’s no “fornication exception” in Luke.

Luke 16:18 Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.

There’s also no fornication exception in Mark because those transgression laws have expired. Jesus redefined adultery.

Mark 10: 10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
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.
