Are Modern Christians following The Way of Christ or the ways of Nimrod? Was Nimrod a Provider or a Predator?

Nimrod, The Hunter

“He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the hunter before the LORD.” (Genesis 10:9)

In Genesis 10:9, the word hunter is from the Hebrew word tsayid[1] which is more often translated provision, food, food-supply, or victuals. The word paniym[2] is translated "before" in the sense in the face of, before or in stead of. It could be said that “Nimrod was a mighty provider instead of the LORD.”

Before Nimrod and Cain the power of the "State" was in the hands of the individual people. But they did have leaders in voluntary systems of charity and cooperation. Often through small groups of tens the people chose who they would follow in battling the trials of life in the world.

These men were priests of voluntary societies and sometimes judges but they were not kings and rulers over the people. That daily power of choice to support or follow was based on personal knowledge, mutual respect and informed consent.

That voluntary network of men choosing ministers and ministers choosing their own ministers formed a nation of freemen in voluntary support of the weightier matters of justice and mercy.

But Nimrod took that pattern and ruled the people from the top down.

“Our king and our god! Wherefore art thou in fear by reason of a little child? There are myriad upon myriad of princes in thy realm, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens, and overseers without number. Let the pettiest of the princes go and fetch the boy and put him in prison.” [3]

These are the words of the mighty provider, Nimrod, who ruled over the people as to what they should do with the child who would become Abraham.

Abraham left Ur and also Haran. What was he really doing and how did his Altars help him and the "many souls" who followed his ways? Was Abraham seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness or following the ways of Nimrod and Cain?

The Levites were also “called out” by Moses, just as Jesus called out His ekklesia, the Church. They were the ministers of the communion of common welfare of the people of the Kingdom of God. These were not the strong arm of men who exercised authority but a system of charity. They taught The Ways of God’s kingdom and kept the people together and strong by their system of charity and hope.

The Corban of the Pharisees
It made the word of God to none effect.
Is our Corban making the word of God to none effect today?

What were the people doing in their pagan Temples?

What purpose did those temples serve in society and by what means were they supported?

Public religious ceremonies took place outdoors, and not within the temple building. Some ceremonies ended within a temple or shrine, where a ritual object might be stored and brought out for use, or where an offering would be deposited. Sacrifices, like that of animals, would take place at an open-air altar within the templum and were eaten at festivals or distributed to the poor as a part of the public social welfare in the case of public religion.

In Hebrew the word Corban actually means offerings. How can people's offerings upon Altars of sacrifice make the word of God to none effect?

Are those offerings freewill offerings or are they forced by the Nimrod's of the world?

Are the modern Christians participating in the charitable practices found in the Corban of Christ or the covetous practices of the Corban of Nimrod and other men who call themselves Benefactors; providing benefits but exercising authority.

Eating at the table of Nimrod will make you merchandise and curse your children.

Was Nimrod a Provider and Predator?

"Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.” (Proverbs 6:5)


Some Questions

More Questions

To find the answers we must seek and strive to do what Jesus said the way He said to do it... Including attending to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors, the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.

The Way of Christ was not like the way of the world, nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on benefactors who exercise authority. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ.

The Christian conflict of the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for benefits but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens.

The modern Christians are in need of repentance.


"Follow me!" —Jesus the Christ.


.

The real Church established by Christ must be the temple of Pure Religion. The temple of God is made of living stones who care about one another in the love of Christ. They function through charity while the Temples of the world force the contributions of the people under the authority of men like Cain and Nimrod.
