I don't believe that a pastor should be PAID to preach because we are not suppose to be hirelings; I do believe that we should be shown some type of appreciation for our dedication to those that we oversee. It really amazes me that we as a people that store owners should be paid for their products that we buy, doctors should be paid for helping us to get well, nurses should be paid for taking our vital signs, teachers should be paid for teaching our children, child care providers should be paid for taking care of our children, mechanics should be paid for fixing our cars, lawyers should be paid for defending us, and everybody that is against pastors receiving money shouldbe paid for the work that they do on their 9-5, 3-11 or 11-7 jobs.............but men and women of God should get nothing but smiles and I enjoyed that message and thank you for praying for me for taking care of our SOULS. Everybody should be financially rewarded except those that labor for our souls so that we don't lift up our eyes in HELL. Let us please keep in mind that those of us that are in leadership positions did not fill out an application to apply for this job. It was and is a God thang. BE BLESSED!!!
Mr Mundi writes"I don't think you know what you are talking about"Dear student of the Torah~~~(or should be) First and foremost, It is not the Ladies that need to become One with the Divine Master and then go about doing Tikkun Olam ( repair the world) It is the Arrogant and rebellious heart of Men that YHVH Has to deal with. Chavah or the english version eve' is the very womb of G-d~
~~ Chavah in the Hebrew means "Mother of all living"
Women are the closest to the source in a pure heart. Only our arrogant run a muck humanity tainted that very truth of the Ruach Hakodesh.
I suggest a thorough re-read of the Basics of Torah ( the first five books or aka the TaNaKh~before we condemn the ideology may it be superficial of the Lady Mrs Towels...She is merely conveying her heart with the limited tools of Xian understanding~ I would suggest to any Lady to look up Ester Wein on http://Torahanytime.com Or check with the Breslev to great teachings for the Ladies.
..I personally see no one on the BPN that represents the Piety of a first century Sage that you think folks are following'~
Look at the above reference it is Rome-Hellenism at it's finest...all about the flesh when the opposite is taught in Judaism which is the root of the teaching of your Rabbi of choice~Yeshua. [Reference Matt:5v17ff and First john 2:v6] Self-nullification...to do the real mission
The Rebbe of Chabad said it well our Mission is this~"To draw G-d's Essence' back down into this material world"
When you become one with the Divine under YHVH's lifelong tutilage You will be Lifted up and no man can Topple that...When you folks realize we are all one universal soul~~ we are all one from the One YHVH or Adonai if you will allow that Name correctly used in Israel] Then the debates will get to a higher level of the ShekinahLife where we all become one community helping each other higher in the Masters divine plane for all humanity
Sadly to go the divided way of Xaianism with its 23,000 different sects is insanity
Time to get back to the Marriage at Mt. Sinai where YHVH Married the Children Israel (You) and the stranger with them ( You -me and the guy/gal/neighbor you don't like)
If you all were truly following the Historical, linguistic and cultural Rabbi Yeshua,...Then simply you would return to your rich heritage before the Elite of N.Afrika sold off your Torah observant Ancestors just a mere six generations ago... I think that is about 240 years or so.
Time to find out who you really are.Time to dig out of the Quagmire of the mother church of Rome and her protestant daughters. I can help a little!
As my dear Terry says:"YHVH is tired of the Debauchery of Humanity"
I really think you all forget about Matt 10:7-15....This is why The church is out of order.
How can you properly say that you serve Adonai but you forsake the scripture.
The Church is a mockery of the Scripture. They have become the heathens, the idolators, the gentils and the Samaritains. Who does this work that is prescribed in the Commision? The Chhurch always hollars for a good will offering. This is against the Scripture. The church always wants a tithe; it doesn't say that either. you are tithing to the church not the Body as scripture tells you to. these churches build bigger churches or buy them. why pay 3 million for a building? How many people could you have feed or even housed? but you justify it by saying that it for the House of the Lord. There is no where in the scripture that says for you to build a church building. THIS IS A LIE made by man.
Theocracy has destroyed the church. This man made doctrine is against the true Will of The Lord. But people follow it blindly as though it is the Law. The Law that we are to walk away from was the law of the Pharisees not the Law of Moses. Matt 5:17 states that Jesus came to establish The Law and the Prophets. Well establish means to pre-exist prior to. when you look at a company they day est.1887. Well the BIble should say on the copyrite: EST. IN THE BEGININING. So how can you all justify the doing away of the Law?
Lies, when will you all wake up and realize the only true path to The Most High is thru OBEDIENCE UNTO DEATH. I stated that a few days ago because that is what the Lord showed me in His scripture and by HIS Spirit.
Do you not think that you are fools running around stating that this is blah blah blah.....ministries...Where is it stated that the temple was ever named after Solomon or David the designer and the bulider of the Temple? IT was not! It had the name of the Most High on it. to put your name on the Temple of The Lord or His Ministry is Blaspheme to MY Adonai.
THER IS ONLY ONE WORD THAT I SHALL DELIVER HERE!!!\
REPENT AND TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS OH HOUSE OF YISRAEL.
Mr . Mundi writes from his heart -however Mr. mundi has not the deep calleth unto deep wisdom knowledge and understanding to get the crowd going~~~ ...Simply Let us see So JC is your lord and savior...Can I ask just what you are being saved from..
Your own Yetzer Harah perhaps... ( Evil inclination)
...That is all that is taught in Judaism ( that religion Yeshua taught from) and since Yeshua was a simple Rabbi who went about doing good (So the story goes) that is basic Tzedakah (benevolent-charity) and Tikkun Olam( repair the world) that is taught for the last 3,300 years or so ( give or take).
So, Since Yeshua taught to Obey the Sages,... and Taught that he walked the Torah walk Matthew 5:v17ff and Yochannon backed it up with 1st. John 2:v6).
So with that as a Premise Why do you kids not see the foolishness of Romes misinterpolation of the facts which they themselves do-not believe...So I suggest Get back to basics: first go and do a deep historical study...cuple that with a Linguistic and cultural understanding and you just might come up with a Working model of the Real Yeshua and exactly how he lived and taught...(Setting aside the writings of Paul)
Lots of Lashon harah...
Young Talmidim, you might want to use intellect and wisdom when instructing the children of the proper use of the Torah...otherwise they may think that you still have a ring of arrogant ignorance of the basics.
YHVH Forbid that that should be conveyed.
When you get to the greater depth young man,...you will realize we are all one from the One'..and to degrade another is a direct reflection of your own mirrored pain within. Perhaps I can help.
Isaiah / Yesayahu 58:v9 ~"...When you stop pointing the finger at others.... Then...you will have found the vestibule of heavens greatest
