For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:21
But suppose they respond, 'This is a prophecy from the LORD!' Then you should say, 'This is what the LORD says: Because you have used this phrase, "prophecy from the LORD," even though I warned you not to use it, Jeremiah 23:38
The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD. Jeremiah 23:28
We are forbidden from God to prophesise in His name. Why? Because there are false prophets in the world (chaff) . A curse is connected to using "thus says the Lord". Rightly dividing the Word comes from studying the Word to be approved by God and diligently seeking Him. I believe God can speak to us in many other ways but the Word is clear on Prophesesing in God's name.
The reason God commanded us to not add to his word is because he only speaks through his word the bible,this way if someone says God said it, we can check it out in the bible,before the bible was completed,we had to wait to see if what the prophet said came to pass,if it didn't, the prophet was false...this was only before the bible was completed...now that its complete all we need to do is go to the bible and check what God says in his word...the wisdom of God fixed it so that there could be no false words spoken for God..
The Tzavah (command) of YHVH to Israel and the stranger with them'~ you allude to Mr Preacher, is fixed before the Milta,... before the beginning, Simply it is part of the Adam Kadmon~ the blueprint for all humanity.
The very essence of YHVH is within us and until folks un-lock the inherent truth, they will always follow fables and socialized misconstruction. You are however right in that everything revolves around the Torah first established at Har Sinai...when 600,000 souls stood in awe at the thick darkness and fire and the Bath Kol from YHVH to his Bride Israel.
The Essence of YHVH never stops speaking and refreshing each and every morning..Solomon essentially said that.And more-so the tapestry of love painted across the evening sky~The night and the day are one day..the Light and darkness are in one day the Light will however prevail if the children would only go and study the essence of the King instead of focusing on the prince of the kingdom as we are all..or should obtain to be..that is teh full stature of the Man the Adam Kadmon...Thwe Psychology of the soul is the journey [ This may help someone<> http://Lessonsintanya.com as a tool of instruction.
The whole point of the Torah is to evolve from an inherent animal instinct to that of a Einstein as one with the Divine Master in wisdom knowledge and finally full understanding (that is Chabad) [ http://Chabad.org ]
Sadly Very few obtain to the Oneness witch Ha'Shem where He states~" I no longer want your praise from the book I want it from your Heart...
Some of you will get that if so join me at http//:ShekinahLife.com and start coming out of her"
There is Nothing off point..everything is G-d~~~(that's who is monitoring) for your Good...or in your terms ~ "All things' work together for good to those who love YHVH and are called to deep calleth unto deep study of the scrolls.
That is a Mitzvah (a commandment) my good neighbor:
To bring a Minion ***/-Ten good men together to Daven (pray)and study,...then go out and heal the world in some way.
Has nothing to do with self...(Personal-gain~topic~) However it has everything to do with Self-nullification:
Enjoy your study of Torah basics, for in there, you will find your heritage and destiny: Shalom
***The Minion is based upon that G-d could not find a Minion of Righteous men in Sodom...therefore much like Amerika destruction is at the door:
Pastor Lorenzo you answered your own question: "I know what the scriptures says about this, but would you pastor for free."
Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins. James 4;17 Those who are truly called know their needs will be met because we seek His Kingdom first. If getting paid is anyone's motive for serving God I fear for them for in their folly they don't fear God themselves...
I am not an ordained minister yet, but I believe that God will make a way for you to reap the harvest of the field. As long as you do the work the Lord has called for you to do then the benefits of the work will come mightly. Don't expect the benefits to come because that's where the Lord will know that you are doing it for the money. I believe the word of God says don't let your right hand knows what the left hand is doing.
Ordained yet..May be a good thing Lets see what you will get ...Ah,... A title and prestige and then if your real good at moving the crowd the handlers will Promote you to there wash boy status..Yeah right;
Ok so there is the flip side,....... the religion that is your heritage that is Not a religion...Judaism..It is a Lifestyle walk...something Yochannon wrote about between the added phraseology it states 'Those who say they follow Yeshua's teachings should therefore walk as he walked"( 1st-John-2:v6)..that alludes to the statement of Matthew 5:v17-ff~
