1 Corinthians 5:13

1 Corinthians 5:13

I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people; 10 did not at all mean with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with idolaters, for then you would have to go out of the world. 11 But [f]actually, I wrote to you not to associate [g]with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church? 13 But those who are outside, God [h]judges. Remove the wicked man from among yourselves.

People want to holler about women being pastors…deal with the fornicators first! The people who ‘hug’ in church who are doing it with lust in their hearts.

Deal with the ones who are still married, separated and having sexual relations with someone else.

Deal with the fornicators first. The molestors, the rapists, the people who hit their spouses.

Deal with that in house!

Make sure NO ONE in a leadership position is doing any of this.

For it is funny how the pastor and other ‘elders’ are hard on the congregation, yet corruption in the leadership?

This Francis, archbishop dude?

I mean if we can ream Bill Cosby just from the number of witnesses alone, i am sorry dude-we gonna have to find another way to deal with this.

Who WANTS to give up power?

I would be deeply hurt someone thinks of me in that way!

I wouldn’t want to be there anyway!

Someone else can do this! I’m out of here!

(May i remember this much later!)

Just the ones we know without doubt!

The ones where the congregation is filled with their out-of-wedlock children!

This is why it is best to follow protocol, i do not want to be in a church where a leader committed this stuff, never apologized, never got suspended, never set down?

I’m gone!

and publicly apologized too! Publicly admitting fault to the ENTIRE congregation!

Politicians use to do this! For it was the best option sometimes (i kinda miss those days!) 😀

Most were forced apologies…yet still.

No pain, no gain! Right?

Its also easy for someone (or a lot of people) to lie about another in this manner and leaving is seen as an admission of guilt.

Deal with it as best you can in the Lords way and step off.

That is what a ‘Christian’ would do!

For a true leader, already knows how easy it is to be blamed for everything and really doesn’t want any part of it.

Those who want it? Rush to power/

Rush to lead?

Have no idea or think they cannot be touched!

Who wants to lead in today’s world?

Believing all it takes is one good person…

One good leader.

The people don’t really want that.

If the people really wanted such, then they would act like it everyday, everywhere, they would be so themselves.

Too many churches have such immorality in itself…tis is why they are NO LONGER the body of Christ! No matter WHO says otherwise!

i have found a church without such obvious immorality (hallelujah), yet filled with other crazy things like:

“That church is such a SMALL church! Ours is bigger!” i guess that is arrogancy, misplaced pride.

and other such stuff.

Tired  of it, immensely so (i pray Lord, “Help me with my pride and arrogance!”)

i remind myself that i’m like Martin Luther (with the Gift and Fruit of Faith) (for it seems Martin was missing that in some places)

We forget that it is ok, for us to meet together…why assume its something bad? Why keep it a secret?

It is and it isn’t.

People of like minds have the basic human right to come together.

Losing power, afraid much? (my Yoda speak) 😀

Can’t no one take what the Lord has given…

Material stuff can be replaced, much more difficult to replace love, joy, kindness and gentleness. (its fun keeping it though!) 😀

Remove the wickedness within your own heart…by following 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Reading the bible thru this second time around, i am seeing the build up to 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

The Bible is a guide…to the Holy Spirit, do not abandon the bible once receiving the Holy Spirit, relying on Him…for our minds still require help, in a land of iniquity…(our bodies, our earth).

There is no Holy Spirit without Yeshua and we lose Yeshua without the Holy Spirit, for hard-heartedness sets in.

Yeshua is the door to the Father, closer than ever and the door to the Holy Spirit.

Ty Lord! For removing wicked desires from our hearts, from our minds! In Yeshua’s holy name, amen!

1 Corinthians 5:1

1 Corinthians 5:1

It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has his father’s wife. [a]You have become [b]arrogant and [c]have not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst.

(There is much immorality being done today and we should mourn them instead of hatred. Why have hatred for another’s immorality when our anger over it proves that we are JUST as immoral?

Fake sorrow is not what is spoken of here. Sorrow to be seen by others, is not required. The Lord sees what is in our hearts and if one’s heart does not feel this way when we see another atrocity committed (fornication we turn a blind eye to, most days, see it as insignificant?) then we have some repentance to do and are easy prey for falling into the same trap.

I see the negative soul ties created with fornication now, more than ever.

Recently i have had to deal with another ‘Christian’ urging me to the nearest church-

“For it is such a shame for someone who has so much to offer! So many gifts (and whatnot)…”

And then the person said, “I just want you to be loved!”

I started laughing then!

“Lol,” (i said) “He is! and I am!”

“Well i just hope you have the family seal…”

I almost asked what that meant…

“I am the Daughter of the God of Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac. The Bride of His Son, Yeshua, the Messiah and a Disciple of the Holy Spirit.” my response.

Then this ‘Christian” said, “No one is questioning your identity….?!”

Family Seal? Really?!!!

then i said, “and anyone who doubts this, is blind.”

Response?

“Well i see that this is a sensitive subject for you, so let’s drop it…?!”

Typical! So typical!

“It is not a tender subject for me!” my response.

This is what i mean. Tired of this attitude.

People say that the church is the people, yet not acting on what is obviously parroted.

See, if we had the courage to stand with the Messiah despite how other ‘Christians’ make us ashamed to be associated with them…

We wouldn’t have them to blame for our lack of whatever, right?

Example: “You have not even cared about my…..(fill in with whatever!)”

So busy reacting to this statement (in anger or shock)

Did you recognize this person caring about your…..(whatever?)

Think about it.

The Messiah makes leaders, not followers.

Maturity comes with The Father (now i understand why people act like spoiled brats!)

Like This is Us?

I remember a time when people had loyalty to products…no matter what was said about the company, they were going down with the ship.

Now a fictional show, does fictional stuff, with a real product (Sue them Crock Pot, Sue This Is Us! Get a settlement for all these ignorant folk throwing out their Crock Pots because of the show? (give me a break!)

If i stopped using/eating, whatever things that had some type of evil associated with it?

Then i would die. Have no shelter, not breathe for that matter (for the air is toxic!) 😀

I decided to BELIEVE that NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER!

To actually ACT like it!

For just about everything will kill us…the Lord, Elohim, Yeshua, is the reason we are NOT dead and He is the only one who can heal us.

So i LOOK for Elohim in EVERYTHING now (for what you focus on multiplies)

This is an example of USING our faith.

Actually try putting a verse into practice!

Choose an easy one!

(yes, there are verses, taken out of context that will get you thrown in jail today-Yet THAT would be YOUR CHOICE!)

Start taking responsibility for ANYTHING in your life not to your liking!

Evaluate it based on the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

There are those who are afraid to leave the church, for instance?

Why?

When did the building become our God?

To see another person not attached to a building, brings doubt about that person?

If a church is just a gathering place for Christians,

if the first churches were Christians gathering by the river (see Acts)

then anywhere ‘Christians’ gather is church…is a small group.

There is SO MUCH pressure to JOIN a church, it is ridiculous!

We are like the military during draft time!

Elohim, i have worked very hard to listen to You and not others.

I am more concerned with what You think of me than what others tell me You think of me.

I wanted to know for myself. Hear You myself!

(Everyone can know and hear Elohim, Yeshua, the Holy Spirit for themselves! This is what we should all strive to do.)

I looked at it this way…

No matter what i do it is wrong, right?

For i tried it all, against, for and with.

I was still being hounded, harassed.

Since i have decided to find others like myself, (understanding that myself is difficult to see, behaving like someone else) the harassment ceases!

Becomes less, doesn’t bother me, like it use to. (for who doesn’t want to be included?)

i rather eat alone, than eat in strife.

Like a romantic relationship, its not suppose to hurt this much!

A higher standard.

We meet online. Church.

We greet each other, obeying and church!

We praise/worship the Lord together…enjoying a gospel song…

Whether its 5 min or longer…

How much time are we spending in communication with the Lord?

Listening to others speak of Him instead of listening to Him ourselves?

Following what we believe? Instead of what we SHOULD believe?

In my opinion this is why so many throw up their hands, give up entirely and choose The World over the Church…

I choose the Messiah over both.

May more and more of you do the same, in Yeshua’s Holy name, amen!
