Abandonment

Lol.jpg
The spiritual replication of evil occurs in the unforgiving heart of victims of injustice. Werewolves, vampires, zombies all spread their demonic identity, their dark spiritual DNA, by infecting their victims with their bite. If people are cruel to us and we fail to heal through true forgiveness we may become like that which cruelly bit us. If we are betrayed or abandoned as a child we may repeat that pattern in relationship after relationship until we allow God to bring back balance with repentance in action. Read more...

Responsibility of Right

Jesusfeeds.jpg
God gave man, through Adam, dominion. Man gave dominion to rulers like Cain, Nimrod, Pharaoh, Caesar and Saul. All were corrupted by that power and authority. Jesus was the one king who desired to give us back that dominion. Early Christians took back their responsibilities for themselves and their neighbor through Pure Religion. Modern Christians lack the knowledge of what that means. Read more...

Exiting Babylon

Tower-of-babel.jpg

Help! I am trapped in Babylon and can't get out.

What is Babylon and which way is it to the exit.

A lot of people think they are Exiting Babylon when they are really just getting lost in the wilderness. What is Babylon? Is it a place or is it a way? Read more...

Public Schools

Schools-education.jpg

If extensive studies now available comparing long range results between Public schools and Homeschooling show that if you choose to teach your children at home they will have 30% higher scores in academics, higher levels of moral and social adaptability and fewer behavioral problems, manifesting more independence and self motivation in later life, less likely to be divorced, on welfare or in jail... then we should ask why are you sending your children to Read more...?

Know the difference

Thinking-soldier.jpg

The way of God is to give man a choice. Taking away that choice is anti God and anti Christ. This is why Christ restricted His Government from exercising authority one over the other and it is why democracy by its nature is opposing God. We use to know the difference between republics and democracies. Read more...Changing the soldier's View of Democracy.

Whosoever believeth

JesusWashFeet.jpg

Do you believeth that Jesus is the Christ? Who do you know that you believeth and are not just under a strong delusion? Many will say they believe but He will and does not know them because they do not know Him and because they are workers of iniquity. Read more...?


Biblical Bunch

Jesusfeedart2.jpg
What is a "Biblical bunch" or group? There are lots of people gathering and studying the Bible but who is figuring out what it is all about? Who is actually doing what they did in the Bible? Are you a Biblical bunch?

School Message

Message?

What message do you send your children and the world when you send them to Public schools to get a Public Education.

What if I told you that it is easily provable that by sending your children to public schools you were in violation of at least three of the ten commandments and the warnings and words of Christ and the apostles?

Would you be willing to study it out and honestly look at the process of obtaining a FREE education at the expense of your neighbor and even your neighbors children?


Shepherds

Sheepdog.jpg

Someone on Facebook also called me a Shepherd and priest so I shared some thought from both concepts at the page Shepherds. Most people do not know what a shepherd or priest is nor the different kinds of shepherd or priest that have been around for centuries. Shepherds




Our Religion

Religionmine.jpg

Our Religion was another Facebook discussion on the direction people are led by what they think is religion.




Iconoclasts

ICONCLAST.jpg

Someone on the California Network group started a lively discussion that probably overwhelmed the group for awhile. You can read a little about it at the article on Iconoclast



The Bible

Some will tell you that the Bible is 'the inerrant Word of God'. Learn about the Bible by letting God write upon your heart and upon your mind.



Baptism

Someone on the California group was looking for source material regarding historic baptism. They were wondering if there is any other support for Herod’s baptism than what was provided in Barbara Thiering's Jesus and the Riddle of the Dead Sea Scrolls which is quoted in several articles including the one on White stones and on Corban.

"According to rabbinical teachings, which dominated even during the existence of the Temple (Pes. viii. 8), Baptism, next to circumcision and sacrifice, was an absolutely necessary condition to be fulfilled by a proselyte to Judaism (Yeb. 46b, 47b; Ker. 9a; 'Ab. Zarah 57a; Shab. 135a; Yer. Kid. iii. 14, 64d). "

"Baptism was practised in ancient (Ḥasidic or Essene) Judaism, first as a means of penitence, as is learned from the story of Adam and Eve, who, in order to atone for their sin, stood up to the neck in the water, fasting and doing penance—Adam in the Jordan for forty days, Eve in the Tigris for thirty-seven days (Vita Adæ et Evæ, i. 5-8)."

"The Baptism of the proselyte has for its purpose his cleansing from the impurity of idolatry, and the restoration to the purity of a new-born man. This may be learned from the Talmud (Soṭah 12b) in regard to Pharaoh's daughter, whose bathing in the Nile is explained by Simon b. Yoḥai to have been for that purpose. The bathing in the water is to constitute a rebirth, wherefore "the ger is like a child just born" (Yeb. 48b); and he must bathe "in the name of God"—"leshem shamayim"—that is, assume the yoke of Gcd's kingdom imposed upon him by the one who leads him to Baptism ("maṭbil"), or else he is not admitted into Judaism (Gerim. vii. 8). For this very reason the Israelites before the acceptance of the Law had, according to" 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia Philo on the Decalogue ("De Decalogo," ii., xi.), as well as according to rabbinical tradition, to undergo the rite of baptismal purification (compare I Cor. x. 2, "They were baptized unto Moses [the Law] in the clouds and in the sea").

The Jewish religion requires that male and female conversion candidates to immerse themselves in a ritual bath called a mikveh. Jewish baptism by immersion in ancient times was to be performed in the presence of witnesses (Yebam. 47b). The person being baptized made special preparations including a fresh profession of his faith before the designated "fathers of the baptism" (Kethub. 11a; Erub 15a).

"Baptism did not start with John the Baptist. It was the practice of the Jews to baptize converts as much as five centuries before John the Baptist was born. John was simply building on what was already established. ... Some time between 200 to 500 years before the birth of Jesus and John, baptism became a part of the traditional procedure for conversion to Judaism." R. J. Grigaitis Jewish Baptism 2007-06-08 http://grigaitis.net/home/rjgrigaitis_resume.html

"Josephus tells us that even during the years of war (66-73 A.D.) the laws of ritual immersion were strictly adhered to (Jos. Wars, 4:205). Herod's Temple itself contained immersion baths in various places for the priests to use, even in the vaults beneath the court (Commentary to Tam. 26b; Tam. 1:1)."

Mystical Mikveh Immersion, The Jewish Background of Christian Baptism by Ron Moseley, Ph. D.

Seeing Through the Eyes of Jesus: His Revolutionary View of Reality and His Transcendent Significance for Faith was written by Rev. Dr. John F. Baggett who is a graduate of Kentucky Wesleyan College and Vanderbilt Divinity School. He holds a Masters in the Anthropology of Religion and a Ph.D. in Psychiatric Anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

He writes:

“Once again, it is important to understand the intent of the law. The commandment to honor fathers and mothers was not simply intended to ensure the right relationships between parents and children while the children were growing up. It was also intended as the social welfare system of the day which assured that the aging and elderly parents received compassionate care and support.”
“In religious zeal, some Pharisees were allowed to circumvent their responsibility to provide for their parents by declaring the resources that would have gone to that purpose as “dedicated to God.” By seeking their own personal holiness at the expense of the welfare of their parents through the declaration of Corban, they in fact made the commandment meaningless for they had avoided its purpose. Social responsibility for those in need was the intent of the Law. Some Pharisees violated that intent by placing their own desires for personal righteousness above social responsibility.”
Acts 6:1 "And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration."
John 9:22 "These [words] spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue [ excluded from sacred assemblies of Israelites, excommunicated]...The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. 31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth... And they cast him out."
John 9:35 "Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?

37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. 39 ¶ And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. 40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? 41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth."

John 10:1 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out."

From the preface the Covenants of the gods:

"This book is a beginning. It is not intended to supply an answer. “And the King shall answer…”(Mt. 25:40). The quotes are not meant to establish an authority in your mind. “Little children, let no man deceive you…” (1 Jn 3:7). The use of logic is not to lead you. “Let no man deceive you with vain words…” (Eph 5:6). Any teaching of established doctrines of men is impugned, “lest in vain we teach for doctrines the commandments of men” Mt. 15:9). Any advice that is taken from these writings was not intended."

Understanding the message of Christ is about revelation, not about eating from the tree of knowledge.

Matthew 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

So what do we think about the modern Church that does not do what Jesus said nor have the Baptism of repentance.

Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that [is] thy neighbour’s.
Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
1 John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
1 John 5:2 -3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.


Luke 22:25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so:

Whether Barbara is right or not is irrelevant when we come to his words "But ye shall not be so:"

Yes it would be nice to have more evidence but what is God writing on your heart?

Congregations are free assemblies

Before the First Amendment[1] people had the right to assemble.

Congregations of Christ are not corporate because that would diminish the rights of the individuals.

They are the gathering of families which are the basic unit of the kingdom of God.

Daniel 4:3 How great [are] his signs! and how mighty [are] his wonders! his kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion [is] from generation to generation.

The kingdom of God is the right to be ruled by God within the family which is God's institution.

As a society a free community requires people seeking liberty under God in a righteous way.

That way is Christ way.

The people must operate under the perfect law of liberty by faith, through hope, and supported by free will charity in a righteous way.

It is a way of sacrifice and service.
It is not slothful, neglectful or self serving.
These precepts of the character or name of Christ are the beginning base foundation of the only true free government form in history.


The Church

Christ appointed a little flock which He called out for a purpose. It was His called out which we translate into Church. It was to be a benefactor who did not exercise authority.

The Church is defined in law dictionaries as "one form of government" with the purposes of Christ and His Doctrines.

The kingdom of God is a grassroots movement of the people as Church and congregation.

That means that the elders, as heads of families, are the moving force of the free congregational assemblies and assemblies of congregations.

The ministers are also elders chosen by the witness of the people and recognized by other ministers in a living network appointed by Christ.

They are all servants who facilitate the living networking of those free assemblies by forming living connections of love and honor.

What should you be doing to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness?

Every geographical group on this network should have at least one congregation of record representing people in each of those areas.

We have them in Texas, the North east and several in the Midwestern states. The people do not have to live next door but they need the common purpose of Christ to serve and heal and save one another.

Talk on your groups about forming these Congregations. Ministers introduce yourselves.

Ministers use this message to respond on your local groups to seek the participation of the people in congregations of record.

2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto him,

People who want to learn more about the behind the scene workings of a free society need to join these congregations and give testimony of your desire to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Misconceptions

From tiny misconceptions great misunderstandings may grow.

We think of a citizen as if they are all the same but they are not.

Then we read translations and make assumptions about people like Paul and his citizenship.

Was Paul a Roman?
Was Paul a Roman Citizen or was he Free?
http://www.hisholychurch.org/sermon/paulroman.php

Paul was not a Roman citizen like people in America are US citizens.

Christ was preaching a message that was hard to receive and most modern Christians would reject Christ if they understood what he was saying to do.

Bottom line is we were told to seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.
The kingdom was there when Christ came. The kingdom of God is not where you go when you die. The kingdom is to be from generation to generation.

Daniel 4:3 How great [are] his signs! and how mighty [are] his wonders! his kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion [is] from generation to generation.
Exodus 17:16 For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn [that] the LORD [will have] war with Amalek from generation to generation.

Amalek is from the word למע ‘amal translated labour, take, mischief, misery, travail, trouble, sorrow,grievance, grievousness, iniquity, miserable, pain, painful, perverseness, toil, wearisome, wickedness... Everyone willing to force their neighbor to labor so that they can have benefits like free public school or health care is an Amalek.

The kingdom was there in Judea but they had followed the pernicious and covetous ways of the Amalek. Most Americans and people of the world have more in common with the Amaleks. than they do with the early Christians..

Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

Jesus was going to take it away from them and appoint it to others who repented.

Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

And that is what he did.

Luke 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

The early Christians did not pray to the Fathers of the earth for their daily bread.

Acts 17:7 Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, [one] Jesus.

Early Christians knew Christ was king.

The kingdom is at hand. It is for the living.

Luke 20:38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

We are not to pray to men who call themselves benefactors but who exercise authority for our daily bread or their benefits. Modern Christians do all the time.

They do not understand the Christian conflict with Rome.

Luke 22:25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

We have returned to the mire because we lack knowledge. They have sold themselves slaves...

“Labour was the first price, the original purchase-money that was paid for all things. It was not by gold or by silver, but by labour, that all wealth of the world was originally purchased.”[2]

In colonial America, “The ordinary citizen, living on his farm, owned in fee-simple, untroubled by any relics of Feudalism, untaxed save by himself, saying his say to all the world in townmeetings, had gained a new self-reliance. Wrestling with his soul and plow on week days, and the innumerable points of the minister’s sermon on Sundays and meeting days, he was becoming a tough nut for any imperial system to crack.”[3]

On the other hand citizens of the United States do not own their own land today. They have at best only a legal title which does not include “ownership of an estate” since it carries “no beneficial interest.”[4]

We are not serving one another but taking a bite out of one another.

Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

Our coveting demand for benefits has cursed our children with debt.

2 Peter 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

The truth is the constitution was the same rejection of God we see in 1 Samuel 8
http://www.preparingyou.com/wiki/1_Samuel_8#1_Samuel_8:10

That was bad enough but since then we have eaten with great appetite at the table of rulers and through covetousness we have been made merchandise regulated in equity.

Jesus had the power of a king but gave that power back to the people.

2 Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

They want to think Christ has to come back while they say daily they have no king but Caesar...

Rome vs. US
Does history repeat itself because man does not repent? http://www.hisholychurch.org/news/articles/romeus.php

People need to start thinking about actually doing what Christ said. They need to gather together in His name which means according to His Character and not like Amaleks and Nimrod.

Where to start seeking the kingdom of God

Constitutionalists

Many people are in love with the constitution and imagine that it is somehow "God's special mandate" or the salvation of this nation. Some of the men who wrote it were pretty good men with some pretty bad ideas and hate what the people have done but vainly we imagine like Rome we are still great.

Most of those early Americans would hate what the United States government has become which is why I wrote Contracts, Covenants and Constitutions.

The constitution was not popular with we the people. In fact it would have been voted down had it been put to a vote of the people. It was an agreement between the states and those who became a part of it. Many of the authors and others within the states warned of the dangers it presented.

Those warnings were not heeded by the people of the last century and the liberties that once belonged to Americans have been lost.

This change is more the result of what the people have done rather than the government itself. Most of what they have done has been directly in opposition to what Christ and the apostles told us to do and what not do. Much of this is explained in the book Covenants of the gods and Contracts, Covenants and Constitutions.

There is a list of free publications on line where you can find the answers to why you are no longer free and what you can do about it in a righteous way. The ministers of the Network can show you where and how to find the answers.

Another false idea that has been floating around for years is that somehow we have been forced under Maritime law. This too is a red herring. What has happened is simple.

We the people of America have signed up for equity which is part of the laws of the United States according to The Judiciary Act of 1789. Equity looks a lot like Maritime law. It is administrative and includes remedies where there is no remedy at common law.

You have done this to yourselves by signing up for benefits and protections of social security and welfare at the expense of your neighbor. This has become a snare and a trap as was told by the prophets of the old and new Testaments.

Your pastors do not know the weightier matters and teach a watered down gospel to tickle your ears. Most Americans have abandoned the relationships and responsibilities required at common law. There are other books available Thy Kingdom Comes | The Free Church Report | The Higher Liberty | but the Network is here to help you come together. We have educational groups and programs, but the real lessons are learned by doing, by forming congregations of record and returning to the ways of righteousness and the perfect law of liberty.

God has been clear that he will not hear your prayers if you seek rulers who can exercise authority one over the other especially to provide you with benefits at the expense of your neighbor.

I have been a student of the law and history for over 50 years.

Before that I lived with my father who wrote law books and handled both domestic and international cases in numerous states.

"We The People" did not mean the people living in the states but the people of the United States who began with the names at the bottom of the document.

That constitution was a step in the wrong direction but, it is one God allowed the people to make. The steps the people have made since by contracting with the entity created by the states called the United States has also been a stumbling block.

The people are a beneficiary of a bankrupt trust and are now collateral for debt, human resources... i,e, merchandise.

What should have been for their welfare has become a snare and a TRAP.

It is time to repent and form congregations of record in a living Network of those congregations seeking community relationships based on faith, hope and charity as doers of the word.

About the author

Not a party

Someone on the Network commented about someone's faith in the organic Constitution,saying:

"As a citizen of His Kingdom we don't have a constitution. The U.S. Constitution never was a good thing and never will be. The people alive, when the bankers were pushing for it, wanted no part of it. It was rammed down their throat just as the obamacare was rammed down the the throat of the current people of the U.S. The U.S. Constitution totally undid what was put in place with the declaration which was a step in the right direction."

While it is true that the people were not a party to the constitution,

Covenants Part I
1. The Party of the first part
http://www.hisholychurch.org/study/covenants/ccc1.php

and they would have voted it down if it had been put to the vote of the people.

Covenants Part IIl
3. Is the Constitution constitutional?
http://www.hisholychurch.org/study/covenants/ccc3.php

The U.S. Constitution did not undue everything. We undid everything as individuals when we returned to the mire and vomit of Egypt and Rome.

How did we do that?

We prayed to men who called themselves benefactors but who exercised authority one over the other.

We wanted public welfare and ate with rulers.

Proverbs 23:1 When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what [is] before thee: And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
Psalms 69:22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
Romans 11:9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:

What happened was false ministers and politicians rose up amongst the people and taught us the lie that it is okay to covet your neighbors goods by praying to benefactors who take from our neighbor by exercising authority one over the other. By benefactors so we deny Christ with our deeds though we say we accept Him with our lips in our churches.

It is absolutely clear Jesus said in Luke 22:25 ... The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so:...

But it is so with the people of every nation in the world. You all covet your neighbor's goods through your government and have abandoned the ways of God, ancient Israel, the early Church and are in need of repentance.

You have become human resources surety for debt and human resources because of your covetousness. You accepted a lie taught in your churches and your public schools thinking they offered free education.

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

You went against the words of Christ about praying to the fathers of the earth for your daily bread and the apostles following the pernicious ways of the world.

2 Peter 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

If you read the rest of Peter you will know that you will not be spared if you do not repent and start doing what Christ said and turn to His house of faith and tend to the weightier matters...

Time to turn around and come together in prayer and form real congregations doing what Christ said to do...

Fear Not

The following is From: Rob C Who was able to attend the Burning Bush Festival in Oregon and the Spring gathering in Missouri

He is from California but has moved to Kentucky to do work he got from those he met on the living Network.

He wrote in one message:

I was able to put many faces to names and cut through the haze that is web communication. The face to face conversations are a breath of fresh air. Now that these personal connections are made, the communication through the web takes on a different dimension.
There is so much that I wish I could communicate but the words fail me….
I guess it has been around two years since I joined the network and I have had my times of backing away and processing what is going on here and in my heart. It seems that my thoughts, convictions and things I think I know are in constant adjustment mode and I often find myself thinking differently than even just a few weeks prior. It is a season of growth I suppose and wisdom would probably say to just keep quiet during such a season of process.

Rob went on to explain the network in a message about how the network operates to a new member, Abraham, on the California group

He also wrote:

Abraham, the beginning of my networking experience here was through personal contact by reaching out to others who responded to email posts. I have also been contacted by others who read my posts. The email group is really a place to make initial contact and begin relationships beyond the web. Private emails can lead to phone calls that lead to actually gathering together.
Given the fact that we are so scattered, there is a structure in place that is designed to keep those who reach out in touch. The first step is choosing a Personal Contact Minister, which is someone who is committed to staying in touch with you and helping you get in touch with others that you may not be aware are here, and keeping you informed of information that comes through the PCM group.
Most of us have questioned the structure at times while we get our minds around what this network is and what it is not. Many of us come here refreshed that there is something different than what we are turning away from and become overwhelmed and back off when we see that this is not a silver bullet program and realize there is responsibility to be embraced if we are serious about learning how to move towards the Kingdom and away from the system of Babylon.
The ultimate goal of this network is to form Congregations but it took me a while to see that that does not necessarily mean a "local fellowship group". That would be great and there are a few congregations that do get to spend time with each other on a regular or semi regular basis. I personally am an elder (member) in congregation with His Church Sacramento. I have elected Justice as my Minister of Record.
... These congregations are more about creating a living network of folks that are connected across the country and the world. When I joined with His Church Sacramento, I was at the other end of California and it was a wrestling match in my head to understand what I was doing but I have come to see that by electing a Minister and coming into congregation with a few other scattered families/individuals, this is laying a framework that is being filled in as we grow and learn.... I will take this opportunity to recommit myself to those who have chosen me as PCM. It has been several months of transition for me and I apologize for my flakiness.

Grace & Peace,
Rob C.

The purpose of this virtual email network is to form a living virtuous network of living breathing souls who take the time to care about others seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness as Christ said.

The Pharisees believed that God had their back too but in fact they were workers of iniquity which Christ speaks about. Faith is not just what we think about God or what we imagine we believe.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Jesus said in Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

People have omitted the Weightier matters of faith which they ought to have done, and not to leave undone.

Faith is not what you think it is what drives you to do what you do.

James 2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

If you do not form congregations of record dependent upon the weightier matters you may be leaving your brother or sister naked, and destitute of daily food except by the provision of benefactors who exercise authority one over the other.

Faith, true faith in Christ and His word, should compel you to become the benefactors who do not exercise authority and that is done best in congregations of record linked by common love for one another and the righteousness of God.

Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if [any man] draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Let us not draw back but seek to gather in the name of Christ for His purposes.
