WHO ARE THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD?

Shalom,

Our teaching will continue from Torah The Law of Moses in The Hebrew Bible from Deuteronomy 23.1-7, or in The Christian Bible from Deuteronomy 22.30 through Deuteronomy 23.1-6.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, WHO ARE THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD?

And with that said, let’s read in The Hebrew Bible Deuteronomy 23.1-7, or in The Christian Bible Deuteronomy 22.30 through Deuteronomy 23.1-6.

QUITE FRANKLY, THE ENTIRE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS A JEWISH BIBLE THAT IS WRITTEN BY JEWISH PEOPLE.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.1, OR THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 22.30

A MAN SHALL NOT TAKE HIS FATHER’S WIFE, NOR UNCOVER HIS FATHER’S SKIRT. 

THAT IS SEXUAL SIN.  AND GOD’S PENALTY FOR BOTH THE SON AND HIS FATHER’S WIFE FOR COMMITTING SUCH A SIN IS DEATH.  LEVITICUS 20.11

BUT TODAY, THOSE WHO WOULD PUT THEM TO DEATH WOULD BE HAULED BEFORE THE JUDGE AND SENTENCED TO PRISON OR DEATH THEMSELVES.

THEREFORE I BELIEVE IF THE SON AND HIS FATHER’S WIFE REPENT, AND GOD’S REPENTANCE IS TURNING FROM ALL YOUR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES TO KEEPING ALL GOD’S STATUTES WHICH ARE ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND DO THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT, AND HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, THEY WILL LIVE.

FOR MESSIAH YESHUA, WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, SAYS, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, ALL SINS SHALL BE FORGIVEN TO THE SONS OF MEN, AND BLASPHEMIES WHEREWITH SOEVER THEY SHALL BLASPHEME:

BUT HE THAT SHALL BLASPHEME AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT NEVER HAS FORGIVENESS, BUT IS IN DANGER OF ETERNAL DAMNATION.  MARK 3.28-30

HOWEVER  IF THE SINNERS DO NOT REPENT AND DO NOT TURN FROM ALL THEIR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES THEY WILL SURELY DIE AT THE HANDS OF GOD AS THE LORD SAYS.

EZEKIEL 18.21, 1 JOHN 3.4

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.2, OR CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.1

A MAN WITH CRUSHED TESTICLES, OR A SEVERED ORGAN SHALL NOT ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD.

THIS LAW OF GOD NEEDS NO EXPLANATION.  HOWEVER, AGAIN, IT IS MY BELIEF THAT IF THE MAN TURNS TO GOD AS IS WRITTEN IN GOD’S LAW OF REPENTANCE IN EZEKIEL 18.21, AND TURNS FROM ALL HIS SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES AND KEEPS ALL GOD’S LAWS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAS MESSIAH YESHUA FOR HIS ATONEMENT, GOD IN HIS MERCY WILL ALLOW THAT MAN TO ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD.

BUT WHO ARE THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD?

THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, NOT ALL, AND OTHERS WHO ARE NOT JEWISH WHO LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD, AND ALL GENTILES WHO BLESS AND LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL. 

GENESIS 12.3, MATTHEW 25.31-46, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, ZECHARIAH 12.10, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, LUKE 8.21

FOR GOD SAID TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO ARE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, FOR YOU ARE A HOLY PEOPLE UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND THE LORD HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE A SPECIAL PEOPLE UNTO HIMSELF ABOVE ALL THE NATIONS THAT ARE UPON THE EARTH. 

DEUTERONOMY 7.6-9

GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE HE LOVES THEM, AND TO BE A HOLY PEOPLE TO THE LORD THEIR GOD BY LIVING ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND HAVING ATONEMENT BY THE SHED BLOOD OF AN ANIMAL SACRIFICE WHEN THE TABERNACLE OR TEMPLE WAS STANDING, OR ATONEMENT BY MESSIAH YESHUA’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.

DEUTERONOMY 7.9 READS, KNOW THEREFORE THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD, HE IS GOD, THE FAITHFUL GOD, WHO KEEPS COVENANT AND MERCY WITH THEM WHO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS.

AND THAT IS WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU TO BE IN THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD, LOVING HIM, AND KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS.  GOD’S COMMANDMENTS ARE EVERY WORD, LAW, TEACHING, AND INSTRUCTION THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND THAT IS ALSO BEING HOLY. 

TODAY MANY JEWISH PEOPLE ARE A HOLY PEOPLE UNTO THE LORD, AND UNFORTUNATELY MANY ARE NOT.

LEVITICUS 19.2, 1 PETER 1.14-16, EXODUS 19.5-6

THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE JEWISH AND NOT JEWISH, WHO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, AND THOSE GENTILES WHO LOVE AND BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL ARE THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD.

FOR MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN BECAUSE SO FEW HEAR THE WORD OF GOD, AND DO IT.  MATTHEW 22.14

GOD SPOKE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FACE TO FACE TO GIVE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE HIS LAWS, TEACHINGS, AND INSTRUCTIONS, AND THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT.  THAT IS A GIFT FROM GOD, NOT ONLY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE, BUT FOR ALL THE WORLD.  FOR ALL THE WORLD TO LIVE BY TO BE HOLY TO THE LORD THEIR GOD, TO LEAD A GODLY LIFE FOR THE LORD THEIR GOD.  AND THEN GOD WILL REWARD YOU WITH A GOOD AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

THEREFORE GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE HIS WITNESSES.  THE JEWISH PEOPLE RECORDED IN THE BIBLE EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPOKE TO THEM FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING TO LEAD A HOLY AND GODLY LIFE BY LIVING ACCORDING TO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND HAVING MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

GOD TELLS YOU WHAT HE REQUIRES OF YOU TO BE HIS WITNESS.  HIS WORDS ARE WRITTEN IN ISAIAH 43.10.  

YOU ARE MY WITNESSES SAITH THE LORD, AND MY SERVANT WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN THAT YOU SHALL KNOW AND BELIEVE ME, AND UNDERSTAND THAT I AM HE.  BEFORE ME THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED, NEITHER SHALL THERE BE AFTER ME.

TO BE A WITNESS FOR GOD, AND HIS SERVANT WHOM GOD HAS CHOSEN, YOU MUST KNOW GOD, AND BELIEVE HIM, AND UNDERSTAND THAT HE IS GOD.  AND BEFORE HIM THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED, NEITHER SHALL THERE  BE AFTER HIM. 

LOOK, YOU CAN’T BE A WITNESS FOR GOD BELIEVING AND TEACHING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR EVEN OPTIONAL.  THAT IS NOT BELIEVING GOD, OR KNOWING HIM.  NOR CAN YOU BE A WITNESS AND SERVANT OF GOD BELIEVING AND TEACHING A TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT GODS.  RATHER YOU ARE BEING AN OPPONENT OF GOD WITH THAT FALSE BELIEF AND TEACHING.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, DEUTERONOMY 32.1-4, DEUTERONOMY 34.10, ISAIAH 43.10-11, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 5.3

THE CHURCH AND CERTAIN MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS ARE NOT OF THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD BECAUSE THE CHURCH AND MANY MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS TEACH THEIR CONGREGATIONS TO DISOBEY GOD WITH THEIR DOCTRINE THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR OPTIONAL.

DO YOU KNOW THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD?  AND NO ONE CAN ABOLISH THE WORD OF GOD.  AND WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO ABOLISH THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD?

THE LAW OF MOSES IS RECORDED IN GENESIS, EXODUS, LEVITICUS, NUMBERS, AND DEUTERONOMY.

AND THE LAW OF MOSES CAN NEVER BE ABOLISHED, OR MADE OPTIONAL. BECAUSE THE WORD OF GOD STANDS FOREVER.  THE WORD OF GOD IS LAW FOREVER.  ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25

TEACHING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED, OR OPTIONAL IS AN ANTI GOD MESSAGE THAT REMOVES GOD FROM YOUR LIFE AND PUTS THOSE WHO BUY INTO THAT TEACHING ON THE HIGHWAY TO HELL. 

1 JOHN 3.4

THEREFORE THE CHURCH AND THOSE MESSIANIC JEWISH CONGREGATIONS THAT TEACH THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED OR OPTIONAL ARE FAR FROM BEING IN THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD, UNLESS THEY REPENT AND TURN FROM ALL THEIR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES AND TURN TO KEEPING EVERY LAW, TEACHING, COMMANDMENT AND INSTRUCTION WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEN THEY WILL SURELY LIVE AND NOT DIE.  EZEKIEL 18.21

ISAIAH 40.8, 1 PETER 1.23-25, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4

LISTEN.  TO BE HOLY IS LIVING YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND HAVING MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  THAT IS BEING HOLY TO LORD YOUR GOD.  THAT IS ALSO LIFE.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.3 OR CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.2

A BASTARD SHALL NOT ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD.  NONE OF HIS DESCENDANTS, EVEN TO THE TENTH GENERATION SHALL BE ADMITTED INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD.

BASTARD IN HEBREW IS MAMZER, MEANING, SOMEONE BORN OF A UNION BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN WHOSE MARRIAGE COULD NEVER BE VALID, SUCH AS A UNION BETWEEN A BROTHER AND SISTER, OR OTHER FORMS OF INCEST.  OR FROM A MARRIED WOMAN WHO BORE ANOTHER MAN’S CHILD.

QUESTION.  HOW MANY YEARS IS A GENERATION?

JOB SAYS 35 YEARS IS A GENERATION.

JOB 42.16 140 YEARS DIVIDED BY 4 GENERATIONS EQUALS 35 YEARS.  35 YEARS MIGHT BE A GENERATION FOR PEOPLE WHOM GOD LOVES.

BUT IN GENESIS 15.16 A GENERATION IS 100 YEARS BECAUSE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE IN EGYPTIAN SLAVERY FOR 400 YEARS, OR FOUR GENERATIONS.

SO IT IS POSSIBLE THAT A GENERATION FOR THOSE WHOM GOD IS ANGRY WITH, SUCH AS THE EGYPTIANS, WOULD BE 100 YEARS.

THEREFORE I’M SAYING A GENERATION FOR THOSE WITH WHOM GOD IS ANGRY, SUCH AS MAMZERS, CALLED BASTARDS, WOULD BE 100 YEARS TIMES TEN GENERATIONS, OR 1,000 YEARS BEFORE A DESCENDANT OF A MAMZER IS ALLOWED INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD.

HERE AGAIN IS MY BELIEF.  IF THE DESCENDANT OF THE BASTARD TURNS TO GOD AND LIVES BY EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AND HAD OR HAS ATONEMENT THROUGH THE SACRIFICE AND SHED BLOOD OF A CLEAN ANIMAL, OR THROUGH THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA, I BELIEVE THAT GOD IN HIS MERCY WOULD ALLOW THAT PERSON INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD, WHO ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE WHO LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.4-7 OR CHRISTIAN BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 23.3-6

AN AMMONITE OR MOABITE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD. BECAUSE THEY WOULD NOT MEET THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WITH BREAD AND WITH WATER IN THE WAY WHEN THEY CAME FORTH OUT OF EGYPT.  AND BECAUSE THEY HIRED AGAINST GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE BALAAM TO CURSE THEM.

NEVERTHELESS THE LORD YOUR GOD REFUSED TO LISTEN TO BALAAM, AND THE LORD YOUR GOD TURNED THE CURSE INTO A BLESSING FOR YOU BECAUSE THE LORD YOUR GOD LOVED YOU.

YOU SHALL NOT SEEK PEACE WITH THEM OR THEIR GOOD ALL YOUR DAYS FOREVER.  IN OTHER WORDS, HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE AMMONITE OR MOABITE.

RUTH WAS A MOABITE AND NOT ONLY WAS SHE ALLOWED INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD, SHE IS ALSO IN THE LINEAGE OF KING DAVID AND THE MESSIAH YESHUA BECAUSE, I BELIEVE, SHE LIVED HER LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPOKE IN TNAKH, THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES, AND MADE ATONEMENT BY THE SACRIFICE AND SHED BLOOD OF A CLEAN AND PERFECT ANIMAL.

LEVITICUS 17.11, RUTH 1.16-17, 22, RUTH 4.13-22, MATTHEW 1.1, 2, 5, 6, 16, 21

AGAIN, IF THE DESCENDANT OF THE AMMONITE OR MOABITE TURNS TO GOD AND LIVES BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, AS RUTH DID, AND HAD OR HAS ATONEMENT FOR HIS OR HER SINS THROUGH THE ANIMAL SACRIFICE, OR THROUGH THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD IN HIS MERCY WILL ALLOW THAT DESCENDANT OF THE AMMONITE OR MOABITE TO ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD.  AND THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

THEREFORE THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD ARE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE, THE JEWISH PEOPLE, NOT ALL JEWISH PEOPLE, AND ALL NON JEWISH PEOPLE WHO LIVE THEIR LIVES BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION, AND HAVE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  AND ALL GENTILES WHO LOVE AND BLESS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL.

Shalom,
