Disciple of Jesus Christs Memorial Parsha Ti Keitzei: Deuteronomy 23

August 26, 2010
“It is not only prayer that gives God glory but work… He is so great thalt things give Him glory if you mean they should.” (by Gerard Manly Kopkins from A Hopkins Reader, John Pick, ed., New York: Oxford University Press, 1953, quoted in D.M. Dooling, ed., A Way of Working, New York: Anchor Press/ Doubleday, 1979, p. 6.)

Welcome to the Memorial Parsha of Jesus Christs’ Ti Keitzei, in the book of Deuteronomy 21 through Deuteronomy 25. The Haftorah is Isaiah 54. Saturday, August 21st, 2010. 1451 BC

Deuteronomy 23:1-8: Exclusion from the Assembly
Moses commands that the Ammonites and the Moabites shall never enter the congregation of the LORD Thy God. The translation may mean that they shall never serve as priest, to the most High God, in the tabernacle and later the House (temple) of God, first built by Solomon.The sanctuary, which is the earliest history of the church is the Temple of God, in Jerusalem. God forbade that the Ammonites and the Moabites shall serve as the High Priest, forever. (Deuteronomy 23:1-5). Furthermore, you shall not seek their peace nor their prosperity. Now this is where the church splinters from the Temple. First, there are a lot of young people who need the gospel shared with them. Gee. I look out my window and I see hordes of young people in their early twenties that need the gospel shared with them, because of poor lack of leadership. When you are young the last person you want to do is listen to your mother. Sure you are safe, because your parents will never steer you wrong, but when I was a young person, that was not fun. I thank God that I learned everything the hard way, that I am hear to tell you that I am an overcomer, lucky, well better than that just blessed and using every blessing instead of the cursing that I deserved to teach, preach, perform, and write the gospel. Jesus and the Apostle John spoke of the overcomer, what a apostolic prophecy being fulfilled today. (John 14:13-14).

Nevertheless, don’t go out there being naive, when Moses commanded that you shall neither seek their prosperity, nor their peace. He is saying this joy that you have the world did not give it, and the world can not take it away. He is saying that their will never be peace, even though you prayer, let them beat their weapons because you want war no more. Have you notice that violent crime spikes during poor economic times. People are living off of each other. A older person understands the statistics and would never reduce the numbers of the population through a possession of an automatic weapon, accidentally firing. Trust and believe when Moses prophesied, he was saying that these people are virulent and are not peaceful, the blood shed will multiply until the judges began to solve the unsolved murders. Gavel time. When Moses prophesied, that you shall not seek their prosperity, he is saying to you and I, that this people will not hire you, they will not give you a second chance, to enter the work force full time in poor economic times because everyone should be working while there is war.

Nehmiah 13:20-30
20 Once or twice the merchants and sellers of all kinds of goods spent the night outside Jerusalem. 21 But I warned them and said, “Why do you spend the night by the wall? If you do this again, I will lay hands on you.” From that time on they no longer came on the Sabbath. 22 Then I commanded the Levites to purify themselves and go and guard the gates in order to keep the Sabbath day holy.
Remember me for this also, O my God, and show mercy to me according to your great love.
23 Moreover, in those days I saw men of Judah who had married women from Ashdod, Ammon and Moab. 24 Half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod or the language of one of the other peoples, and did not know how to speak the language of Judah. 25 I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in God’s name and said: “You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves. 26 Was it not because of marriages like these that Solomon king of Israel sinned? Among the many nations there was no king like him. He was loved by his God, and God made him king over all Israel, but even he was led into sin by foreign women. 27 Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?”
28 One of the sons of Joiada son of Eliashib the high priest was son-in-law to Sanballat the Horonite. And I drove him away from me.
29 Remember them, O my God, because they defiled the priestly office and the covenant of the priesthood and of the Levites.
30 So I purified the priests and the Levites of everything foreign, and assigned them duties, each to his own task. 31 I also made provision for contributions of wood at designated times, and for the firstfruits.
Remember me with favor, O my God.

Deuteronomy 23:4
4Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee.

 Joshua 24 :

5I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.
6And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.
7And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.
8And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you.
9Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:
10But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.
11And you went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand.
12And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.
13And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.
14Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
15And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Nehemiah 9:5-11
5 Standing on the stairs were the Levites—Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani and Kenani—who called with loud voices to the LORD their God. 5 And the Levites—Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah and Pethahiah—said: “Stand up and praise the LORD your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting. [a]
“Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. 6 You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.
7 “You are the LORD God, who chose Abram and brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans and named him Abraham. 8 You found his heart faithful to you, and you made a covenant with him to give to his descendants the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Jebusites and Girgashites. You have kept your promise because you are righteous.
9 “You saw the suffering of our forefathers in Egypt; you heard their cry at the Red Sea. [b] 10 You sent miraculous signs and wonders against Pharaoh, against all his officials and all the people of his land, for you knew how arrogantly the Egyptians treated them. You made a name for yourself, which remains to this day. 11 You divided the sea before them, so that they passed through it on dry ground, but you hurled their pursuers into the depths, like a stone into mighty waters.

Deuteronomy 23:8-19: Cleanliness from the Campsite; Miscellaneous laws
Jesus ministry was much like Moses had promised, and that he would raise another son of God, and he would require that you listen to his words. It is very difficult to listen to the words of God through his prophet if you don’t have the correct version of the bible. (Deuteronomy 18:18-19). Jesus ministry was unique because the Holy Ghost after baptism was performed through the sign of the sprinkling of water, for all disciples. Although a prayer of consecration consist of devoting yourself to a sacred or high purpose; to dedicate, to make sacred, consecrated; devoted and dedicated; sanctification is also a work of grace. So we know that when we bear witness of the original Hebrew manuscripts that we are following Moses commandments. Like the work of sanctification, the sign of Holy Ghost Baptism, is believing that the you are a sanctified believer in God through the awesome power of the Holy Ghost, which resurrected the Lord Jesus on the third day – God is glorified. The Holy Ghost Baptism is a grace that merges you into the body of Christ, and you are a member of the body of Christ, you are in his household; which is the church. (Ephesians 2:21; 1 Corinthians 12:13, 27). A person can become baptized by faith and calling on the name of Jesus, this is all the the believer has to do to justify their faith as a sanctified believer. The evidence of receiving the Holy Ghost can be manifested in the speaking in other tongues, as the spirit gives utterances. (Acts 2:4,5Matthew 3:11; Luke 11:13; Acts 1:5).

In closing, you must remember that the Bible said that nicely, Mary Magdalene had many spirits. The word says, “In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.” (Matthew 28:1). You will begin to read that according to others that are the enemies to the gospel, would like to do nothing better than to say that Jesus was anything other than the Son of God, and that is simply not true, he is the first fruit of what all we are aspiring to be, born again and resurrected into eternal life. Nevertheless, Mary was the first woman to see Jesus had risen, and Gabriel did not raise Jesus, the Holy Ghost raised Jesus from the dead; God is faithful to His Son, to do the work that he is sent to do, seven days a week (Matthew 28:2-9). No matter how bad you are treated and what people say to you, God loves you and he only wants the best for you. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me. (Matthew 28:10). Like Mary Magdalene, you will have many people who will see you coming and they will try to stop the message that Jesus is risen. As Moses has commanded, don’t subscribe to their peace or their prosperity, when you get fired from that job, remember that you are blessed by the best. The authorities will be punished for the evil deeds done unto the children of God, the disciples of Jesus. Therefore, do not take matters into your own hands because God will require an account of the evil doer, and judgement will delivered. You have to be prepared for the final judgment, and survive the second death, on that great day. (Matthew 28:11-15).  The word says, “So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. (Matthew 28:15).

Remember that Jesus is the eternal he is the grace that we hope for, the scriptures say, “Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?” (Hebrew 10:29). Yet, Mary was not afraid of what people would say unto this day. She was not afraid, she was saved by the time she had ran into her saviour, she did not fret what man could do to the body, because many people will try to kill the soul, and the soul is permanent and eternal. Jesus says over and over, and is the central figure of King David’s Psalms, “Don’t be afraid.” So Mary (Luke 8:2) ran and she was not afraid of the son of perdition, and I am sure she was confident to petition the throne of God to do His will; because Mary was delivered (saved) by the good news of the Kingdom of God. Therefore, her greatest fear was no that severe, when she feared God, after all the disciples had blown it… in the book of Luke to Acts 2, when Jesus gives the power of the spirit as promised; which means to give a basis for expectation or hope; an indication as of a successful prospect or future; basis for expectation.God is holy and redeemed His people, the house of Jacob, remember God’s character.

Matthew 28:16-20: The Great Commission

16Now the eleven disciples(T) went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17And when they saw him they(U) worshiped him, but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and said to them, (V) “All authority(W) in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19(X) Go therefore and(Y) make disciples of(Z) all nations,(AA) baptizing them(AB) in[b] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them(AC) to observe all that(AD) I have commanded you. And behold,(AE) I am with you always, to(AF) the end of the age.”

Next Moses commands that you shall not hate your brother, the Edomite; and you shall not hate an Egyptian. The third generation of the children may enter the congregation of the LORD Thy God. (Deuteronomy 23:7-8). Moses commanded that when you are in the presence of the enemy, you shall stay away from evil. (Deuteronomy 23:9).

The third command Moses gives is cleanliness in the camp, which is reviewed again to the descendants of the generation that crossed the Red Sea. The unclean person shall leave the camp, and return when they are clean. God walks in the midst of his people to deliver you, so you can may be willfully focused on God, but you should also be clean (Zechariah 13:1; Mark 7:19). During the Old Testament times, there was not much grace for the enemy and then the he was delivered before you. God gave up your enemies to be delivered before you. Therefore, Moses said that the word of God requires that ‘Your camp shall also be holy.’ You don’t want God to see you unclean and he turns away from you when you are fearful and need deliverance because you are oppressed, distressed and depressed. (Deuteronomy 23:10-14;  Leviticus 26:12; Leviticus 15:10).

The fourth commandment of Moses, says that we shall not be amongst whores and prostitutes in the ranks of the children’s daughters of Israel. Likewise, there shall be no sodomite amongst the sons of Israel. You shall not hire a whore for your vows, whoredom is not accepted for your vows, when your bring your offering to the priest at the third Temple. (lol; consecrated vows are accepted). (Deuteronomy 23:18; Leviticus 19:29). Really, you shall be holy and always support your ministers of reconciliation, this is what we call kingdom building. The Temple of God was the forerunner of the ancient church, and there this is the heartbeat of the five-fold ministry that was performed when Jesus walked the earth. Jesus said of his fourfold witness that if you do not believe the writings of Moses how will believe my words. (Deuteronomy 8; and Isaiah 10). Apostle Paul elevated his ministry with a five fold ministry. (John 5:31-47). Lastly, Moses commanded that you shall not lend with usury toward your brother. (Deuteronomy 23:19-20). The LORD Thy God will bless you in all that you do in this land that He is given you.

I could go on and on because Deuteronomy 21 and 23 are so much alike with the miscellaneous law and the various law, just remember Jesus said that he will know that you are his Disciples because you will keep all of his commandments.

Ephesians 4:4-16The Apostle Pauls’ five-fold ministry for the saints (gentile) of the church.

4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
7But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
8Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
10He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
14That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning
craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the
measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Acts 5:28-32The Apostles on Trial again

27And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,
28Saying,
Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name?
and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to
bring this man’s blood upon us.
29Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
30The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
31Him
hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for
to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
32And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

 33When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.

THE ROLE OF THE MEDIEVAL ROMAN CATHOLICISM IN CHRISTIANITY?

Once upon a time, very long ago when all the churches were one. In the West, from the sixth to the tenth centuries CE, the old Roman Empire had gradually fallen into non-Christian invaders.  For instance, the way of life, known as Islam had made great advances into once strong holds of Christendom.  The Arabs had conquered Palestine, Syria, Mesopotamia, Egypt, North Africa and parts of Spain. However, the Angle and the Saxon (SANDERS) invaders of England were the new  converts to Christianity, with entire tribes joining the faith at the behest of their chiefs. During the fourteenth century, most of central and western Europe was claimed for Christianity, and missionaries had spread the faith to isolate various areas of the Asian continent. (page 319, World Religions ).

The Holy Roman Empire had become politically decentralized into feudal kingdoms, with the Christian Church as the major force that kept Europe united. The chief factors that sustained Christianity throughout the chaotic centuries were its centralized organization and the periodic refreshing of its spiritual wellspring through monasticism and mysticism.
