Being of one accord
Shalom mispacha (my family),
The title of this blog pretty well sums things up about how I'm felling about things. Folks please stop all the quibbling! People are watching your actions and taking notes. We are supposed to be examples of God's people, and what sort of example are we setting when we fuss and fight and show little or no love and tolerance.
Now having said that, I'll be a bit more specific:
Please immediately clean up your language! I'm soooo tired of talking to my "Christian" friends and hearing the "F" word and worse, posting it is even more abominable!
The name: Yes most modern Christians are well indoctrinated into the Pagan usage of "God", "Jesus" and the like. Lately I've seen many posts telling me if I (and you) don't use the correct "name" we are going to hell...STOP IT!!! (That's not true) These folks are wanting to fuss about the spelling and pronunciation of YHVH, YHWH, Yaweh to Yahuawah, the different distinctions are virtually endless. I do recognize that this name was suppressed by the Rabbinical counsels, who gave us "Adonai" or G-d almighty.
I am not a "Trinitarian", that precept in itself is Pagan in nature, and given to us by the Catholic church. I am dyed in the wool mono-theistic, one God who has a son, (Yashua or Yeshua) the Messiah. His spirit, the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) I know personally. I'm not bragging, but as I posted several months ago, back in '96 he visited me, directing me to be a teacher for him. When I asked him "who shall I say sent me", he responded "Elohim". (the mighty one of Israel)
My point here is, I value your studies, and learn from them, however not everyone is up with you and on the same page. I strongly believe that he, our Father does look into our hearts much more than he checks obedience. The day is shortly coming when every knee will bow, and complete obidience will be required, of this I have no doubt.
At this particular point in time we need to show more love and understanding and stop the quarreling within.
1If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
2Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
We all have one common adversary, Lucifer or HaSatan. We know that he is currently in control of this world and is wroth with anger fore he knows his days are few. Let's try to be one one accord at this time and lift each other up.
In his service, your brother, his Rabbi, Lonnie
P.S. If this really bothers you, I encourage you to pray for discernment of the spirit you are of.
