What is our Biblical Mandate?
According to Scriptures, what is the duty of the kingdom towards the less fortunate and how do we relate the integrity, character, honor of Yah to the nations? Are we behaving faithfully according to the Righteousness and Justice of Yah? Are we behaving with honor like the way Yah’s kingdom should conduct ourselves?
The Scriptures say:
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Loving kindness and truth go before your face.
Do we know what Righteousness and Justice is according to the Biblical definition? Many people argue about theology and dogma and some people become self righteous in their understanding of what sometimes they think the bible says. We are to be very careful in not dividing the kingdom of YHVH. WE DO NOT WANT TO BECOME OPPRESSORS!!
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you tithe the mint and the anise and the cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the Torah: Justice and Mercy and Faith. These need to have been done, without neglecting the others.
These are some of the theological arguments in the movement at this moment:
- Sacred names
- One house/ two House
- One law/ no law
- Gentile / Jewish
- Calendars- lunar Sabbath, sighting, sliver, conjunction, aviv, vernal equinox,
- Jubilee now celebrated in the dispersion vs only the land
- Torah for the nations or not
- The everything is pagan type attitude
- Sabbath celebrated in the day time only
- Enoch calendar
- All other stuff that keeps coming out every week
But, what was the Mandate given to Abraham and his children?
…I have chosen [Abraham], that he may charge his children and his household after him to keep the way of YHVH by doing righteousness and justice; so that LORD may bring about for Abraham what He has promised him.”
How many soup kitchens are currently working in the Hebrew roots movement at this moment? When was the last time we helped the homeless, needy, alien, fatherless, oppressed and the Levi?
I pray this teaching will help us redirect our focus from argumentative to doing the works of Righteousness according to the will of our King and Father.
