Who among us has witnessed “rebuke before all” in any church assembly? Who has witnessed someone in church assembly being rebuked “before all”? Is this rare or nonexistent? According to the verse above, when are we commanded to rebuke? Are we commanded to rebuke when sin is in active commission?Is watching the Stupid Bowl a sin? Greetings kindred and fellow sheep. Who here does not see the need for this lesson?
Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
If Jesus was in this pulpit right now, and said “take heed to yourselves”, what would we do? Does it sound very dangerous if we do not “take heed” to ourselves? Is it unthinkable to mess this up?! How difficult is it to think of ourselves being in law enforcement? Does rebuking someone sound risky? Before we try this risky rebuking stuff, would we want to know a lot more about it?
What is “rebuke”?Rebuke is translated from the Koine Greek word G2008 epitimao, ep-ee-tee-mah’-o, whose seed meaning is to censure. Have we heard of legislative bodies censuring one or more of its members? G2008 epitimaho is also translated elsewhere charge. In two places in The Gospels Jesus charged the Apostles not to tell anyone he is The Christ, or Messiah.
This is going to be more of a Bible word study than a sermon this morning, but I think the subject matter is very important, because if one reads the Old Testament and doesn’t understand this word we are going to talk about this morning, one can get rather confused, and also see what seem to be contradictions in the scriptures.
The word we are going to look at this morning is going to be the word Stranger, or what has been translated as Stranger in English from the Hebrew in the Old Testament. I think maybe a good title for this message would be Stranger Danger, like the Neighborhood Watch program’s slogan. Because if one does not understand what the Hebrew word is being used when Stranger is translated in to English in the Old Testament, this person is in for some dangerous theological errors.
Does secession break the American Covenant of Perpetual Union?
Have Americans, We the People, become the Enemies of The God of The Bible? What made this question so alarming is that the behavior of We the People in succeeding generations precisely mirrors the behavior of Israel. Israel,in succeeding generations, rejected the Covenant they made with The God of The Bible!We the People, in succeeding generations, rejected the American Covenant of Perpetual Union our forefathers made with The God of The Bible?Did The Framers of The Republic believe The God of The Bible to be a Covenant God?
Greetings Kindred and fellow Sheep. Is Sin blinding? Are People who practice Idolatry convinced that they do no such thing?Is our world in America today levels of both deception and extortion? Has this world of Malice ever been a friend to Jesus?
Can we hear our kindred now from Churchianity? “That word’s for Israel; it is not for us. All that is old stuff; it’s done away!”
Jeremiah 10:2 “Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.”
“Learn not the way of the heathen.” Should Christians today learn the way of the heathen? Does that even sound good? Or should we learn “the way” of Jesus?
Greetings Fellow Sheep, Kindred, and Neighbours. My name is Walter. We meet to share Resources in order to change what will happen tomorrow. Our desire to change what will happen tomorrow is the basis of our Unity. In a previous Lesson, The Birth of America, we asked:How do we discern between what works and what does not work to change what will happen tomorrow? What was Our Answer ? Understanding The History of We the People reveals what works and what will not work.
We discovered in our Lesson, The Birth of America, the “Action of Second Continental Congress, July 4, 1776,” was not the fruit of Rebellion. Has anyone of the 27 charges against King George the III ever been disproven? Did we see The Evidence in our 1st Lesson, The Birth of America, that King George breached The Charters of all 13 Colonies and persuaded Parliament to treat them as Enemies? Did we see from The Evidence that The King of the British Empire violated all 13 Contracts of Government? Is Breach of Contract a serious charge in any Court?
We meet to share Resources in order to change what will happen tomorrow. Our desire to change what will happen tomorrow is the basis of our Unity. In our previous lesson, The Birth of America, we asked a question: How do we know what will work, and what will not work? Answer?
History! History prevents We the People from making the same mistakes twice! Are we witnessing repeated attempts to corrupt the history of We the People? Are corruptions intended to prevent our knowing what works and what does not work? Do repeated attempts to corrupt History have “in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States”?
In the last message titled Painting, the Holy Spirit led me to explain what our thoughts should be on and that we should include God in all that we do. The Holy Spirit had me point out a couple of passages for this message.
Do we have faith the size of a mustard seed? Have we moved mountains? This message is going to attempt to explain what mountain represents and sycamine tree represents and whether or not we are using our ability to have faith the size of a mustard seed.
We begin with The 2nd 13th Amendment to The Constitution for the United States of America.
Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. ratified December 6, 1865.
What form of Slavery is institutionalized, and sanctioned by this Amendment? What form of Slavery does this Amendment fail to forbid? The form of Slavery this Amendment fails to forbid is The form of Slavery that is against The Law of the Land to forbid! What is the only form of Slavery that is against our Law to forbid?! Who is willing to volunteer to be a slave? Do I have any volunteers for slavery? We do not have much time left. I wish to recruit all of you for slavery!
Greetings Kindred, Fellow Sheep, and Neighbors. We are on a first name basis here. My name is walter. I am delighted to be with you. Your presence here indicates your interest in changing what will happen tomorrow. Our interest in changing what will happen tomorrow is unifying. It is the basis of our Unity. Every one of our Families forming our Neighborhoods has a vested interest in avoiding what does not work. Every Family that forms our Neighborhoods has a vested interest in doing what does work!
The Head of each Family Household has a Dominion. Each Head of House is a judge in his own court. It is The Original Family Court. The Magna Carta, or Great Charter, signed by King John, 1215, at sword point, provided no Englishman could be denied His Own Court! What works for one may not work for another. Each family’s assignment, in changing what willhappen tomorrow, will be unique to that family. For The Truth of what I say this Basic Maxim of English Law pleads my Cause: a Man’s House is his Castle; even The King must knock to enter.
Greetings Kindred and fellow Sheep. We are on a first name basis here. My name is walter. This Lesson comprises Scriptures that have puzzled me for a long time. This Lesson is not possible without The First 7 Lessons! The Subject is Twins by two different Fathers. From Twins, Lessons 1 and 2, do we recall Two Interlopers into the ancient names of the stars : Greek and Roman Mythology? In Gemini the Greeks named the Twins Apollo and Hercules. The Romans named them Castor and Pollux. The Bible named them Abel and Cain. The Roman names Castor and Pollux identify the figurehead on the ship of Alexandria that carried Paul, his fellow prisoners, and Luke, the beloved physician, off the island of Malta.
