“If Christianity is a group that doesn’t help each other or the poor, either we have to pretend that Yahshua [Jesus] was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love each other, the poor, and serve the needy without condition –and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.”
What does Yahovah speak regarding love? What does He expect from this world of Christianity? We all need to examine ourselves, and not according to what is preached, but what has been written for our instruction required to make our salvation eternal, and to gain our Fathers love. Hebrews 5:9, John 14:21
Even with 16 free websites, 1000 lengthy blogs, published book, a decade of self -sacrifice with no income, and one hard road of life for my wife and I — we always pray, keep our faith, and just wait for YHVH to find any genuine brother or sister with love for others as commanded.
Teacher, which [is] the great command in the Law?’
And Yeshua said to him, `Thou shalt love the Lord thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thine understanding —
this is a first and great command;
and the second [is] like to it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself;
on these — the two commands — all the law and the prophets do hang.’
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to YHVH Elohim [God].
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does YHVH’s love abide in him?
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Yeshua [Christ].
John 15:12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.
We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
For YHVH is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.
Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your Elohim [God] with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”
And Yeshua, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.”
Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.
And the crowds asked him, “What then shall we do?” And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”
Religion that is pure and undefiled before Elohim, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Yeshua, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; …
Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him; the Lord protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies. The Lord sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me. Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’
For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve YHVH and money.
As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
But what have the majority of the rich done for others in need and humanity? Absolutely Nothing!
“The Lord says, “I will bring such disasters on the human race that everyone will grope about like someone blind. They have sinned against me, and now their blood will be poured out like water, and their dead bodies will lie rotting on the ground.” On the day when the Lord YHVH shows his fury, not even all their silver and gold will save them. The whole earth will be destroyed by the fire of his anger. He will put an end—a sudden end—to everyone who lives on earth. (Zephaniah 1:17-18)
For we are his workmanship, created in Yeshua HaMashiach for good works, which YHVH prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Yeshua, “And who is my neighbor?”
The Sin of Partiality
My brothers,[a] show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called?
If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it. For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
Faith Without Works Is Dead
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good[b] is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.
‘Who am I exactly according to the words of our Lord all believers are to trust, believe and follow? Just a man living as many others on some of life’s difficult roads; yet live on faith with obedience having not worldly possessions just as all true believers are supposed to via having their minds set on things above. Colossians 3.
“He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and he hath set the world upon them. (1 Samuel 2:8)
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
How many believers do the will of our Father? Are pagan holidays worldwide directed through the words of our Lord Yeshua we are to live by? Is putting confidence in this world of habitual-liars claiming truth without the works and actions instructed in the Bible? Is persecution with selfishness and scorn against brethren in Yeshua the will of our Father? Are not we to even feed our enemies? (Romans 12:17-21)
“We love because YHVH first loved us. If we say we love YHVH, but hate others, we are liars. For we cannot love YHVH, whom we have not seen, if we do not love others, whom we have seen. The command that Yeshua has given us is this: whoever loves YHVH must love others also.
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Yeshua, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” And when he had said these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all. And there was much weeping on the part of all; they embraced Paul and kissed him, being sorrowful most of all because of the word he had spoken, that they would not see his face again. And they accompanied him to the ship.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of Elohim, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to Elohim, which is your spiritual worship.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Any in this entire world lacking love with a genuine care for others beyond words with no more have been overcome by the god of this world because Satan; and that is because psychological hate, pride, ego, selfishness and anything but love is what keeps a world of believers from knowing YHVH in spirit and truth according to His own words a world of Christian believers refuse to believe, or will say that they do believe in loving others, but in words alone being not doers, but hearers only deceiving their own selves. James 1:22-25 – 2:14-17
And he said to me, “Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak with you.” And as he spoke to me, the Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and I heard him speaking to me. And he said to me, “Son of man, I send you to the people of Israel, to nations of rebels, who have rebelled against me. They and their fathers have transgressed against me to this very day. The descendants also are impudent and stubborn: I send you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord Elohim’. And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that a prophet has been among them.
‘In this entire world of unshepherded sheep being untaught believers, there is no true knowledge of who they are, where they are, why they exist or the words of their creator telling all where they have come from. . .
“We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the Lord our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God. (Jeremiah 3:25)
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that YHVH has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
You must now understand this;
Today the word church has a wide variety of meanings from referring to a building to performing a religion service; therefore it is essential that we understand its original meaning as it was used in New Testament times — thus in order to establish a New Testament church we must first know what the word “church” means in Scripture.
In our English Bible the Greek word, “ekklesia” is translated in most places “church.” The word “ekklesia” is found in one hundred and fifteen places in the New Testament. It is translated in English one hundred and thirteen times “church” and the remaining times it is translated “assembly.” In classical Greek the word “ekklesia” meant “an assembly of citizens summoned by the crier, the legislative assembly.”(2) The word as used in the New Testament is taken from the root of this word, which simply means to “call out.” In New Testament times the word was exclusively used to represent a group of people assembled together for a particular cause or purpose. It was never used exclusively to refer to a religious meeting or group.
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; (1 Peter 2:9)
It’s only those in this world who have been called out of this world (John 15:18-21) that have gained the spiritual knowledge which is understanding of YHVH, and who will reign with Yeshua as part of YHVH’s government for leading all in righteousness according to the laws of God based on love. (Isaiah 9:6-7, Revelation 5:10)
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to Elohim, for it does not submit to His’s law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please YHVH Elohim. You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of YHVH dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Yeshua does not belong to him.
Within this entire world of man-made religions with all different doctrines and traditions, there is no truth because there is only one YHVH, His Spirit, and one truth with no division; so how can a world of division have the only true Spirit of Elohim?
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
Only Yehovah can choose whom to have mercy upon. Romans 9:15-18
Have you been dying to self? Have you helped your neighbor or any poor homeless on the street? Do you have a genuine concern for people worldwide suffering and dying in situations you have no control over? Does the thought of a woman somewhere being beaten, raped, or tortured bother you? How much? How about a small child being sexually molested this moment, does it hurt your heart and mind? How badly? Enough to begin doing more than just listening to or reading scripture? Enough to stop paying tithes for lies by helping people in need which pleases YHVH? Enough to start actually following YHVH’s book of instruction? Enough to no longer place trust in man, but rather making Proverbs 2:1-6 with 3:5-6 your way of life? Or remain under man’s bull spit through arrogant pride with greed knowing more than their creator while being full of praise and lip love leading billions into their own bloodshed as written in Lamentations 4:13?
Satan dwells in all the buildings of man called churches, (Revelation 2:13-17) so when you give YHVH’s money all you are doing is supporting the devil because YHVH needs not your funds – but the homeless, sick, hungry, abused and poverty-stricken do – yet all pay YHVH money never asked for in the New Testament—Why? – To feed preachers bellies is why; and that is because YHVH Elohim Almighty who has always been and can do all things needs not your money – only the greedy liars do while not even telling their believers YHVH is love who can do all things with the only true church being the small group or assembly being the body of Yeshua who follows only their Head Yeshua through faith, obedience and the written words in the Bible which contain no instruction for becoming a part of pagan ways, customs or doctrines.
http://godsunknownmessengerr.webs. com/ – To Tithe or Not to Tithe?
Can you just ask yourself one question?
Are you pleasing Elohim according to His written words of instruction for life in the flesh while being spiritually minded to the point of being no longer of this world?
Most all will just say they have been saved and forgiven with no more needed, therefore everything regarding what has been written is up to you; and YHVH is watching to see what you do with truth never before taught, and the time will come when there shall be no more. (Amos 8:11)
Will just one true believer ever be found who will help the life my wife and I that have struggled for over 10 years? Only YHVH knows; therefore has made us strong through weakness just as Paul in 2 Corinthians 11 and 12.
