EPHESIANS 2:20 - 'And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,  MESSIAH himself being the chief corner Stone;
ACTS 20:28 - ''Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the ALMIGHTY SPIRIT hath made you overseers, to feed the ASSEMBLY of YHVH, which he hath purchased with his own blood'' 

 ROMANS 12:5  ''So we, being many, are one body in MESSIAH, and every one members one of another."   

1 CORINTHIANS 3:17  ''If any man defile the temple of YHVH, him shall YHVH destroy; for the temple of YHVH is holy, which temle ye are. 

COLOSSIANS 3:16  ''Let the word of MESSIAH dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the YHVH.   

SO SERIOUS THE WORDS OF SCRIPTURE ARE, ABOUT HIS ASSEMBLY.   YES I SAID 'HIS' ASSEMBLY.  IT IS NOT OURS PERSONALLY, IN THE RESPECT OF: WHAT WILL TAKE PLACE THERE. NO PASTOR, OR ASSEMBLY LEADER HAS THE RIGHT TO JUST ENTERTAIN HIS OR HER OWN IMAGINATIONS, OR PERSONAL IDEOLOGY.   'HIS' ASSEMBLY (church) IS THE ""HOUSE OF PRAYER"" 

Matthew 21:13 “And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves''.  (Thieves come in all 'sizes and shapes" Not just to steal funds,  in a 'Spiritual Realm' it can be for many unseen and unsuspected reasons. The 'Enemy' is a foe not to be reckoned with. Remember he was an angel of 'light' at one time).

ISAIAH 56:7--''.... will I bring to my Hallel mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.”

JAMES 5"16--'' Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.''   

NOTICE In Isaiah 56:7 + Matthew 21;13, the references to "His House of Prayer'''.  His Almighty Place of Worship, Prayer and Praise. This is a serious Place of Prayer, ITS SUPPOSED TO BE, a Place of "Kneeling Hearts"; THE MEETING PLACE BETWEEN THE ALMIGHTY FATHER AND HUMANITY.  iT is NOT a place for Earthly Entertainment;  or frivilous nonsense, jokes and revelry. 

Of all places in a Community for "Holiness" to be of concern and on display, this is it"   This is whereen and women of "right relationship' with The Almighty, must be in charge. There needs to be ''Reverence and Holiness" kept in this ""House of Prayer"". The time for chatter, and visiting between the Congregation takes place, AFTER Service on Sabbath, not during Service times, or at Prayer meetings. Too much 'socializing' often takes place during these Services, which disrupts the move of the Spirit on hearts and lives of people.  For this reason, there must be quiet and Reverence in the Sanctuary. 

It is also the responsibility of the PASTOR and Leadership in the Church to protect the Flock of Messiah; in everyway possible; as 'ravening wolves' roam about disturbing the peace and tranquility of the faithful members. The 'Wolves in Sheeps Clothing' are not necessarily just 'selfist' speakers from other communities.  They appear in all kinds of 'Costumes' and varieties.

The work within the ASSEMBLY is also to be done with each member, or those who are interested in becoming members.  A weekly visitation  with the family is a great place to start. Let it be known of your care and concern for each one. The work of the Pastor and Leadership is about much more than just ""Preaching" at Sabbath meetings, and group gatherings. IT IS THE WORK OF THE PASTOR AND CHURCH LEADERSHIP TO BE IN CONTACT WITH THE PEOPLE OF A COMMUNITY. IF THE ONLY TIME A PASTOR IS SEEN IS AT THE SABBATH SERVICE, THEY ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOB.

1 Thessalonians 5:11--''Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing''.

Ephesians 4:32--''Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as YHVSHA forgave you''. 

LUKE 17:3-4  "Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.” 

JAMES 5:13-20  ''Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the ASSEMBLY, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of YHVH. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and YHVH will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. ...

MATTHEW 23:8-11  "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers. And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the MESSIAH . The greatest among you shall be your servant. 

2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17  ''All Scripture is breathed out by YHVH and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of YAH may be competent, equipped for every good work. 

Looking around today it is evident that the ''Work of the ASSEMBLY (church)" has taken a backseat, in most areas. Members of a Community can live there for many years, and never receive a visit from any Church Leadership, or their Laity. What a sad state of affairs, and proof of the failure of what is supposed to be the guidance of the Church.   EPHESIANS 4:1-32  ''I therefore, a prisoner for the YHVH (L-rd), urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one YHVH (L-rd), one faith, one baptism, ...=Read the Chapter

We pray for a Revival. A Revival of Repentance; a Revival for Hunger of knowing the Master, The Messiah, and for submission to His Commandments and Teachings. Until this takers place, there will be no growth or change within any ASSEMBLY, that will wake up a dying Nation and its people. 

John 14:15-31 KJV If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 

 

With a heavy Heart,  In Humble Obedience
