The Israelite Man
1 Kings 2:1
Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying, 2. I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man; 3. And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:
Shalom, May the Most High In the Christ Bless you.
Welcome to the beginning of your journey in the truth. As you begin your walk you will find there is much to learn as in today’s churches of Christianity, The Laws, Statutes, Commandments and Judgments of the Most High are not being taught; we are told that it is no longer necessary to keep the laws of the Most High. This could be no further from the truth of what is written in the scriptures. In this article, we will clearly see what the Most High has stated how the Israelite man is to walk.
You may ask “Why is this so important?” That’s a very good question. The simple answer is that once the Israelite man gets himself together, he can and will set his house in order (his Wife and Children) which through the example of us all will help to show others how to walk and help cause our nation to make peace with The Most High and usher in the Apocalypse which would be the end of our captivity; That the kingdom be established for Israel to rule with the Most High and the Christ forever and ever more.
Through this website you will be able to learn how we are to walk in the laws of the Most High through the Christ. The Israelite man must conform to the Most High’s Dress Code, Dietary Law, Ceremonial Laws, etc. All that can be discovered step by step. Remember, “In your patience possess ye your souls” With that being said, let’s begin to see how this affects the Israelite man and his purpose. Let’s see why the Israelite man was created and how the Most High looks upon him.
THE MOST HIGH
The Israelite Man and Beginning Of His Journey
The Israelite man is the Most High’s firstborn. The firstborn is the inheritor of the birthright. Israel was the last nation created and yet is called the Most High God of Israel’s firstborn. You must first see your own value within yourself to understand why you were created and your purpose.
Hebrews 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
The church of the firstborn is the actual first church which is Israel which was with Moses in the wilderness (see Acts 7:37-39 . The Most High delivered Israel from the Egyptians because he loved us as his first begotten as a nation.
22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:
12 O Lord, have mercy upon the people that is called by thy name, and upon Israel, whom thou hast named thy firstborn.
We must come to first recognize the Most High as OUR Heavenly father (personal possessive) and WE (subject possessive) are his children and the only nation he has known (see Amos 3:1-2 ). We have suffered the pains of captivity because of our disobedience, however, this is not how the Most High originally meant for us to go through life (see Deuteronomy 28:1-14 ).
5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
Now as you begin to make your walk in the truth of the scriptures, you must consider how to walk to please the Most High and not ourselves; we must walk according to the scriptures and not the lies of our former teachers and their false doctrines. Be mindful, even in this truth, you must examine yourself whether you are in the faith (see 2 Corinthians 13:5 - 8 and following the will of the Most High and not being men pleasers.
1 Thessalonians 4:1 - 7
1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:
6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
So, how are we to be built up; just how should we walk? We must become rooted/settled in the word correctly, less we be rooted up and destroyed.
1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Colossians 2:7 - 8
7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Consider the wickedness of the world and that if the Most High had not called us into this marvellous truth, we would be no different than the wickedness of the world today which is fashioned after the abominations of Babylon, Sodom, Gomorrah and Egypt (see Revelation 11:8 , Revelation 17:1-6
9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
We must be thankful that the Most High has called us through his word. You will find as you learn and walk in this truth, the scriptures are accurate beyond a shadow of a doubt; with regards to our suffering and to how we will be successful and delivered. We had to be called to even hear and see it. Now it is our turn to take up our cross and show others this marvellous truth. This gospel has to be preached in all the world wherever Israel may be scattered. This is how you were called and why and what we must do
Romans 10:14 - 18
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
So how are we to preach? We must learn properly that we may teach it properly; it must be clear and distinct. The doctrine must not be corrupted nor corruptible otherwise the people will not be warned and prepared for the day of the Lord (see Amos 3:6-7 ). It is only through the clarity of the Most High’s precepts (laws) that we will understand and be able to help others understand.
1 Corinthians 14:7 - 9
7 And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?
8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?
9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.
Psalm 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
So remember, as we make this journey, that we are the Most High’s workmanship and must properly reflect him. You cannot serve God and Mammon, you will either love the one and hate the other (see Matthew 6:24 ). We must walk as we were called to. The Israelite man therefore has an obligation to study to work out his own salvation. (see Philippians 2:12-13
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Why Was He Created and How Has He Erred?
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?
As you walk through the scriptures, you will find that no scripture is of private interpretation (see 2 Peter 1:19-21 ; the scriptures back themselves up. This is why what is found is in the New Testament is only that which has been originally said in the Old Testament; it is our school master (see Galatians 3:23-26 ). We were created in his image and as he is Holy, we are commanded to be both Holy and Perfect as our Father in Heaven (see Leviticus 19:1 -2 , Matthew 5:48 and 1 Peter 1:15 - 16 ). We have to consider how we were created; in whose likeness and images.
Genesis 1: 26-27
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Titus 1:1 -3
1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;
2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
So why are we here now? How have we come to this place in our lives? It is nothing we have done of ourselves for left to ourselves we surely would destroy ourselves. We are all but sheep going astray needing a shepherd to keep us from our own folly (see Isaiah 53:6 , Jeremiah 50:6 and 1 Peter 2:25 ).
24 Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?
Ezekiel 34:30 - 31
30 Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord GOD.
31 And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord GOD.
We formerly walked after our lust, now we are to walk after the will of the Most High (see Psalms 40:8 ). That is what we are to delight ourselves in. We find no fault with ourselves until we are brought face to face with the err of our ways.
2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.
40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
25 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
As stated earlier, our leaders have caused us to err. We are no different than our examples; if they our righteous, so should we be, but if corrupt, the whole tree will become corrupt for a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump (see Matthew 12:33 - 37 and 1 Corinthians 5:6 - 9 ).
Isaiah 9:16 - 18
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
18 For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.
15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
22 The knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, neither at any time the counsel of sinners prudence.
We don’t have to study wickedness to know it‘s wicked. We need to walk and follow after righteousness. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; had man followed the instructions from the beginning we would not be in this unfortunate situation (see Genesis 2:15 - 17 , Genesis 3:1 - 7 , Psalms 51:5 and Proverbs 22:15 ). You shall know them by their fruits (whether good or evil – see Matthew 7:16 - 20 , and Galatians 5:19 - 21 ). This is how we will know that we are of the Most High or have the spirit of the Devil.
1 John 3:7 - 10
7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Don’t allow anyone to deceive you; he that does righteousness (keeps the Most High’s Laws, Statutes and Commandments) is righteous (Remember Deuteronomy 6:25 ); he that sinneth is of the devil. That is how we identify the spirit of a person. It is for this very reason we must consider the council we take. Eve took the council of Satan and brought the wicked doctrine to her husband Adam; because Adam hearkened to it instead of correcting it, we all suffer. So it is in the homes of the Israelite man. He is the head of his home and is to give the council of the Lord.
14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
5 O how comely is the wisdom of old men, and understanding and counsel to men of honour.
36 And if thou seest a man of understanding, get thee betimes unto him, and let thy foot wear the steps of his door.
It is important to take stock of how we, Israelite men, must teach our families. We must also be mindful of our counsellors as some are only in it for themselves. Some seek to make merchandise of the people and walk in err for preeminence. That is vainglory and not profitable. We are not to be puffed up but rather to esteem one another. We must show genuine love for our families and teach them in spirit and truth according to the word of the Most High. If you are in this truth for preeminence, whether it be for your family or to lead over men, you are in it for the wrong reasons. This walk is not about ourselves, but we are to esteem one another as ourselves and not seek to be seen of men and puffed up.
3 John 1:9
9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
Philippians 2:1 - 8
1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
We must as Israelite men maintain a spirit of humbleness and humility. Scriptures tell us the greater thou become the more humble thyself (see Ecclesiasticus 3:18 ). We cannot be wise in our own minds and eyes, we must examine ourselves through the scriptures and set the righteous example (remember, he that doeth righteousness is righteous and he that sinneth is of the devil). Ask yourself, which one will you be; righteous or of the devil.
Ecclesiasticus 37:7 - 16
7 Every counsellor extolleth counsel; but there is some that counselleth for himself.
8 Beware of a counsellor, and know before what need he hath; for he will counsel for himself; lest he cast the lot upon thee,
9 And say unto thee, Thy way is good: and afterward he stand on the other side, to see what shall befall thee.
10 Consult not with one that suspecteth thee: and hide thy counsel from such as envy thee.
11 Neither consult with a woman touching her of whom she is jealous; neither with a coward in matters of war; nor with a merchant concerning exchange; nor with a buyer of selling; nor with an envious man of thankfulness; nor with an unmerciful man touching kindness; nor with the slothful for any work; nor with an hireling for a year of finishing work; nor with an idle servant of much business: hearken not unto these in any matter of counsel.
12 But be continually with a godly man, whom thou knowest to keep the commandments of the Lord, whose, mind is according to thy mind, and will sorrow with thee, if thou shalt miscarry.
13 And let the counsel of thine own heart stand: for there is no man more faithful unto thee than it.
14 For a man's mind is sometime wont to tell him more than seven watchmen, that sit above in an high tower.
15 And above all this pray to the most High, that he will direct thy way in truth.
16 Let reason go before every enterprise, and counsel before every action.
We must use wisdom in how we conduct ourselves; count the cost of what we are seeking to build and whether we have enough to finish it (see Luke 14:28 ). Two can’t walk together except they be agreed and this starts within our own homes. Some people are with you while you are up, we have to consider who we are with. Above all our love must be for the Most High first as well as for our families. No one is dragging anyone into the kingdom. We simply must consider how we are walking with the scriptures as our guide and instruct our families accordingly. As married men, our wives are to be our help meets suitable to help us. We can’t trim our ways to seek love. We must walk circumspect to the scriptures (that goes for our whole household). As married men, we must consider this as if we marry how we choose our wife as well as deal with our families and neighbour. Be ready to study the word of the Most High and encourage others to do so. Above all things, pray to the Most High and ask for vision and he will guide you through his word the correct course in your life.
Proverbs 3:5 - 6
5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 21:1 - 2
1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
The Most High is pleased with us when we walk in his ways and not our own vain opinions. We must not allow ourselves to be deceived into thinking we have everything together. That can only be examined through the scriptures.
Jeremiah 17:9 - 10
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
The Most High will judge everyman according to his doings or works. Let no one tell you that we don’t have to keep the commandments. This is imperative. We can seek to justify ourselves as if we have everything all together.
Job 9:20 - 21
20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
Good works is to keep the laws, statutes and commandments of the Most High as they are what is good (see Romans 7:12 ). Sin is the transgression (to go against) the law (see 1 John 3:4 ); to transgress the Most High’s laws is to show hatred towards him, because if we love him, we keep his commandments (see 1 John 5:3 and 2 John 1:6 ). We are to abstain from all appearance of sin (see 1 Thessalonians 5:21 ).
Ecclesiasticus 21:1 - 2
1 My son, hast thou sinned? do so no more, but ask pardon for thy former sins.
2 Flee from sin as from the face of a serpent: for if thou comest too near it, it will bite thee: the teeth thereof are as the teeth of a lion, slaying the souls of men.
Ephesians 4:22 - 27
22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.
6 Therefore have we erred from the way of truth, and the light of righteousness hath not shined unto us, and the sun of righteousness rose not upon us.
This is the posture of the Israelite man; even if we are angry with our neighbour (fellow Israelites), spouses or children, we are never to let it turn to anger; we are not to let the sun (our light/wisdom in keeping the commandments) go down upon our wrath. Christ face was transformed into the light of the sun (see Matthew 17:2 ). The sun is likened to wisdom and our understanding of the light/law.
Order Of The Home, The Most High, The Christ and The Israelite Man
Ecclesiasticus 10:1 - 3
1 A wise judge will instruct his people; and the government of a prudent man is well ordered.
2 As the judge of the people is himself, so are his officers; and what manner of man the ruler of the city is, such are all they that dwell therein.
3 An unwise king destroyeth his people; but through the prudence of them which are in authority the city shall be inhabited.
2 Esdras 14:13 - 15
13 Now therefore set thine house in order, and reprove thy people, comfort such of them as be in trouble, and now renounce corruption,
14 Let go from thee mortal thoughts, cast away the burdens of man, put off now the weak nature,
15 And set aside the thoughts that are most heavy unto thee, and haste thee to flee from these times.
We are to set our homes in order without question/any doubt; we must put off the concerns of the world in being carnal minded and cast away such burdens; all of that is a manifestation of a weak nature. When we fail to order our homes and correct our families, we are showing forth a weak nature and not a spirit of power, love and a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Whether we are with our family or teaching the word to Israel, we are not to be fearful in ruling our homes and desire to teach. It takes a man that fears the Most High above all to properly rule his home and receive the crown in the end. We have no need to fear as we have been given the power in the understanding of the Most High’s word through the Christ; we have been shown how to love the Most High by applying his commandments and the sound mind is that we have been given sound doctrine that we are not twisted with every wind of doctrine.
1 Corinthians 11:1 - 3
1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
We know that Abraham was a man the lead as he was commanded and serious minded; he had servants and ruled over them; he knew how to command according to the laws.
1 Timothy 3:1 - 13
1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.
11 Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
The offices of either Bishop or Deacon are simply positions of leadership. We are to lead our homes and family and therefore as men should desire the office of a Bishop or Deacon because it is only a sign of desiring to lead as the Most High had commanded us within our homes we must first order and rule well first. To rule our homes, we MUST teach our families. We are to set an example to our nation how to properly walk in the commandments through Christ as Israelites. When are homes are out of order, we are out of order as men.
Ephesians 4:14 - 16
14 That 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;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From 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.
That is the goal that as we order our homes, we are fitly joined together in Christ. Two cannot walk together except they be agreed (see Amos 3:3 ), therefore we MUST set our homes in order.
30 Be not as a lion in thy house, nor frantick among thy servants.
Knowing we have to rule our houses does not give us license to be tyrants that do not rule righteously, but rather we must judge and rule righteously. We don’t need to verbally assassinate our spouse and rule with our fist/hands. When we behave as a lions we are setting ourselves up to be a lone. It’s a simple process – USE THE WORD TO ORDER YOUR HOMES; if the wife desires to not listen and apply after being shown through the scriptures, we have to take a strong posture in setting forth the order; if they chose not to comply, then you will have decision only you can make (Choose and continue the counsel of the Most High first.
Ecclesiasticus 25:25 - 26
25 Give the water no passage; neither a wicked woman liberty to gad abroad.
We are to cut off that spirit of rebellion and not allow it to seek to rule over us.
26 If she go not as thou wouldest have her, cut her off from thy flesh, and give her a bill of divorce, and let her go.
The wife should go and walk as a believer; if she won’t walk as a believer and keeps tussling with the cares of the world and will not honour her husband as unto the Lord, let her go; the Most High has not called us to bondage (see 1 Corinthians 7:15 ); again, two cannot walk together except they be agreed (see Amos 3:3 ), therefore, again, we MUST set our homes in order. Try to reason together first with the scriptures and seek righteous counsel and not of the world.
