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 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 KJVA
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 KJVA). The Most High delivered Israel from the Egyptians because he loved us as his first begotten as a nation.

Exodus 4:22 KJVA
22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:

Ecclesiasticus 36:12 KJVA
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 KJVA). 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 29:1-14 KJVA).

Hebrews 12:5-13 KJVA
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 yebastards, 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 KJVA) and following the will of the Most High and not being men pleasers.

1 Thessalonians 4:1 - 7 KJVA
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 Gentileswhich 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.

Psalm 127:1 KJVA
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 KJVA
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 thetradition 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 KJVA, Revelation 17:1-6 KJVA).

Isaiah 1:9 KJVA
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 your 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 KJVA
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.

Matthew 24:14 KJVA
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 KJVA). 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 KJVA
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 KJVA
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 KJVA). 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 KJVA).

Ephesians 2:10 KJVA
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?

Psalm 8:4 KJVA
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Hebrews 2:6 KJVA
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 KJVA); 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 KJVA). 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 KJVA, Matthew 5:48 KJVA and 1 Peter 1:15 - 16 KJVA). We have to consider how we were created; in whose likeness and images.

Genesis 1: 26 - 27 KJVA
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 KJVA
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 KJVA, Jeremiah 50:6 KJVA and 1 Peter 2:25 KJVA).

Proverbs 20:24 KJVA
24 Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

Ezekiel 34:30 - 31 KJVA
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 KJVA). 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.

Proverbs 16:2 KJVA
2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.

John 12:40 KJVA
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.

Judges 21:25 KJVA
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 KJVA and 1 Corinthians 5:6 - 9 KJVA).

Isaiah 9:16 - 18 KJVA
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.

Proverbs 12:15 KJVA
15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

Ecclesiasticus 19:22 KJVA
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 KJVA, Genesis 3:1 - 7 KJVA, Psalms 51:5 KJVA and Proverbs 22:15 KJVA ). You shall know them by their fruits (whether good or evil – see Matthew 7:16 - 20 KJVA, and Galatians 5:19 - 21 KJVA). 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 KJVA
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 KJVA); 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.

Proverbs 11:14 KJVA
14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

Ecclesiasticus 25:5 KJVA
5 O how comely is the wisdom of old men, and understanding and counsel to men of honour.

Ecclesiasticus 6:36 KJVA
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 KJVA
9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

Philippians 2:1 - 8 KJVA
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 KJVA). 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 KJVA
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 KJVA). 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 KJVA
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 KJVA
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.

Psalm 37:23 KJVA
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 KJVA
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 KJVA
20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
James 3:13 KJVA
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 KJVA). Sin is the transgression (to go against) the law (see 1 John 3:4 KJVA); 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 KJVA and 2 John 1:6 KJVA). We are to abstain from all appearance of sin (see 1 Thessalonians 5:21 KJVA).

Ecclesiasticus 21:1 - 2 KJVA
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 KJVA
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.

Wisdom 5:6 KJVA
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 KJVA). 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 KJVA
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 KJVA
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 KJVA
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Revelation 2:10 KJVA
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 KJVA
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.

Genesis 18:19 KJVA
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 KJVA
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 ownhouses 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 KJVA
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 KJVA), therefore we MUST set our homes in order.

Ecclesiasticus 4:30 KJVA
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 KJVA
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 KJVA); again, two cannot walk together except they be agreed (see Amos 3:3 KJVA), therefore, again, we MUST set our homes in order. Try to reason together first with the scriptures and seek counselling of righteous counsel and not of the world.

BE THAT MAN; THE REPENTED RULER

Exodus 19:6 KJVA
6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Exodus 28:42 KJVA
42 And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:

Exodus 39:28 KJVA
28 And a mitre of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen, and linen breeches of fine twined linen,

Ezekiel 44:18 KJVA
18 They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves with any thing that causeth sweat.


Men are to wear the pants in the family, not the women. There is a dress code that we as well as our family must adhere to (see Deuteronomy 22:5 KJVA).

1 Corinthians 11:4 - 7 KJVA
4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

Ezekiel 21:25 - 27 KJVA
25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
26 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.
27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.

There are many types of head coverings. As priest, we are not to have our heads covered when bringing forth the word. It doesn’t have to be a full shroud type covering but that which goes around the head and covers to be considered a covering, therefore consider when you have anything upon your head. Remember you are part of a royal priesthood and must set forth the example. The only one worthy of the crown is the Christ; if we endure until the end, then we will receive our crown.

Ecclesiasticus 45:7 - 13 KJVA
7 An everlasting covenant he made with him and gave him the priesthood among the people; he beautified him with comely ornaments, and clothed him with a robe of glory.
8 He put upon him perfect glory; and strengthened him with rich garments, with breeches, with a long robe, and the ephod.
9 And he compassed him with pomegranates, and with many golden bells round about, that as he went there might be a sound, and a noise made that might be heard in the temple, for a memorial to the children of his people;
10 With an holy garment, with gold, and blue silk, and purple, the work of the embroiderer, with a breastplate of judgment, and with Urim and Thummim;
11 With twisted scarlet, the work of the cunning workman, with precious stones graven like seals, and set in gold, the work of the jeweller, with a writing engraved for a memorial, after the number of the tribes of Israel.
12 He set a crown of gold upon the mitre, wherein was engraved Holiness, an ornament of honour, a costly work, the desires of the eyes, goodly and beautiful.
13 Before him there were none such, neither did ever any stranger put them on, but only his children and his children's children perpetually.

Hebrews 7:11 - 17 KJVA
11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

1 Peter 2:9 KJVA
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:


What Is Required Of The Israelite Man, The Man Of The Lord?

Deuteronomy 10:12 KJVA
12 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

Micah 6:8 KJVA
8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

1 Kings 8:61 KJVA
61 Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

Psalm 101:2 KJVA
2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

How Does the Israelite Man Become Perfect?

Psalms 19:7 - 11 KJVA
7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Ecclesiasticus 34:8 KJVA
8 The law shall be found perfect without lies: and wisdom is perfection to a faithful mouth.

Hebrews 7:19 KJVA
19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

This particular verse alludes to how the law of animal sacrifice was not able to make man perfect or to convert him else there would have been no more need for sacrifice (see Hebrews 10:1-6 KJVA). We draw nigh to the Most High through Christ in keeping the commandments and turning from sin. The better hope is the Christ, in that through him we may obtain the kingdom (see John 14:6 KJVA).

James 4:8 KJVA
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Psalm 119:9 - 14 KJVA
9 BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
12 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.

This is the way back to the Most High and becoming perfect. Remember, to the law and to the testimony (see Isaiah 8:20 KJVA); that is the only way our light (wisdom in the keeping of the commandments – see Deuteronomy 4:5 - 8 KJVA and Ecclesiasticus 50:27 - 29 KJVA) will be seen.

1 Chronicles 28:9 KJVA
9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

Romans 12:2 KJVA
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

We have to make a decision in our mind; we are either for the Most High and the Christ or against them (see John 15:22 - 24 KJVA); there is no middle grown; we have to make a choice; we can’t be lukewarm (see Revelation 3:15 - 16 KJVA). The primary reason Israel went into captivity is because of our continuing in sin and trespassing the will of the Most High and not keeping his laws, statutes, commandments and judgments (see Ezekiel 39:22 - 29 KJVA and Hosea 7:13 KJVA); it is therefore only logical that to be delivered from the curses for transgressing the laws of the Most High is to return to keeping them in spirit and truth (see John 4:23 - 24 KJVA).

Hebrews 11:40 KJVA
40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

That which was provided as a better thing for us was the example of the Christ in how he walk perfect, according to the law); without sin (see 1 Peter 2:21 - 22 KJVA) of which we are to walk following his example walking in the light (see Proverbs 6:23 KJVA and John 8:12 KJVA) and not in darkness doing evil (see John 3:19 KJVA).

Ephesians 2:10 KJVA
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Deuteronomy 5:33 KJVA
33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess .

1 Thessalonian 4:1 - 7 KJVA
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.

The Israelite Man's Appearance

Deuteronomy 22:11 - 12 KJVA
11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.
12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.

We are not to wear mixed fabrics; they are to be 100% of whatever type fabric. The shirt may be polyester, and the fringes cotton as it is not a garment of divers sorts as the fringe is not the garment. The fringes should also follow the same pattern of being 100%; there may be beads as such, but the primary make up of the fringe fabric is to be 100%. The fringe is to be upon the border and therefore throughout the hem of the garment.

Numbers 15:37 - 41 KJVA
37 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:
39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.
41 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.

The purpose of the fringe is to remind us to do “ALL” of the will of the Most High; in keeping his laws, statutes, commandments and judgments; that we may be holy and set apart to the Lord himself (see Psalms 4:3 KJVA).

Leviticus 19:27 - 28
27 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.
28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

Leviticus 21:5 - 8 KJVA
5 They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
6 They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of their God: for the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they shall be holy.
7 They shall not take a wife that is a whore, or profane; neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto his God.
8 Thou shalt sanctify him therefore; for he offereth the bread of thy God: he shall be holy unto thee: for I the LORD, which sanctify you, am holy.

The Most High has set grooming standards for his people. The Israelite man is not to mar the corners of his beard means that he is to maintain a beard and not be clean shaven (i.e. no goatee only, no shoestring beards). He is to have a beard if he is able to grow it. Some men may not be able to grow beards and therefore not to have one in such case is not sin. The Israelite man is also not to have a bald head. If he happens to be naturally bald, there is no sin. He may cut it low, but not bald. He may also allow his hair to grow into locks as long as they are not dreadful (the must be maintain with cleanliness).

Though a man is to keep his private area covered, he must also follow the commandment of the Most High in having circumcision.

Acts 7:8 KJVA
8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.

Genesis 17:10 - 13 KJVA
10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

Leviticus 12:1 - 3 KJVA
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.
3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

The Most High has commanded that all males of Israel be circumcised on the eighth day. If an Israelite male has not been circumcised, he must consider its necessity to be of the covenant of the Most High. No covenant, no promise. Consider the promise. 

Romans 15:8 KJVA
8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:

Wisdom 12:21 - 27 KJVA
21 With how great circumspection didst thou judge thine own sons, unto whose fathers thou hast sworn, and made covenants of good promises?
22 Therefore, whereas thou dost chasten us, thou scourgest our enemies a thousand times more, to the intent that, when we judge, we should carefully think of thy goodness, and when we ourselves are judged, we should look for mercy.
23 Wherefore, whereas men have lived dissolutely and unrighteously, thou hast tormented them with their own abominations.
24 For they went astray very far in the ways of error, and held them for gods, which even among the beasts of their enemies were despised, being deceived, as children of no understanding.
25 Therefore unto them, as to children without the use of reason, thou didst send a judgment to mock them.
26 But they that would not be reformed by that correction, wherein he dallied with them, shall feel a judgment worthy of God.
27 For, look, for what things they grudged, when they were punished, that is, for them whom they thought to be gods; now being punished in them, when they saw it, they acknowledged him to be the true God, whom before they denied to know: and therefore came extreme damnation upon them.

Above all we must circumcise the foreskin of our hearts/minds (see Mark 7:21 - 23 KJVA). The purpose of the circumcision is that we be bound to the covenant (in agreements with the Most High). Both the covenants (Old and New) is only for Israel  (see Hebrews 8:8 - 13 KJVA).

Deuteronomy 10:16 KJVA
16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked.

Deuteronomy 30:6 KJVA
6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

The love of God is to keep his commandments and his commandments are not grievous (see 1 John 5:3 KJVA).  Keeping the Most High’s laws is what makes us perfect.

Deuteronomy 18:13 KJVA
13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

That clearly, is a command and therefore a commandment. It’s not an option and therefore imperative to know how to do so.

Matthew 5:48 KJVA
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

1 Kings 8:61 KJVA
61 Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

As we were created in the image of the Most High, we were created for his glory, therefore glorify him in all your works. Christ even commanded us to be perfect. It was not a trivial request but a clear commanded instruction in how we are to walk.

Romans 15:6 KJVA
5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of ourLord Jesus Christ.
7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.

Matthew 5:16 KJVA
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

The light that is to be within us is the Most High’s Laws (see Proverbs 6:23)

Baruch 4:2 KJVA
1 This is the book of the commandments of God, and the law that endureth for ever: all they that keep it shall come to life; but such as leave it shall die.
2 Turn thee, O Jacob, and take hold of it: walk in the presence of the light thereof, that thou mayest be illuminated.

We are given the name Israel (Prince having power with the Most High – Genesis 32:28 KJVA).

Isaiah 45:4 KJVA
4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

Isaiah 43:7 - 11 KJVA
7 Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.
9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.

Israel is the only nation called by the name of the Most High; we have been given his name/surnamed just as a bride is surnamed by her Lord. We are to take on his name in righteousness and reflect the perfection of his image in our walk and talk.

2 Samuel 22:31 KJVA
31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

Genesis 1:27 KJVA
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Wisdom 2:23 KJVA
23 For God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of his own eternity.

Colossians 3:10 KJVA
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

2 Samuel 22:33 KJVA
33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.

We show the confidence and strength of the Most High when we keep his commandments and walk in all his ways as he has instructed us. That is what makes us perfect.

Psalm 118:8 KJVA
8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

Proverbs 29:25 KJVA
25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

How Is The Israelite Man to Deal With His Neighbour?

Leviticus 19:17 - 18 KJVA
17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

James 2:8 - 9 KJVA
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

1 John 2:9 - 11 KJVA
9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

1 John 3:15 KJVA
15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

1 John 4:20 - 21 KJVA
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

The Israelite man MUST put on the new man after Christ and put off the old man and his ways (including hatred which would cause us also to seek to kill our neighbour).

Deuteronomy 32:4 KJVA
4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Ephesians 2:10 KJVA
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Deuteronomy 5:33 KJVA
33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess .

We are commanded to walk and conduct ourselves in ALL THE WAYS of the Most High through Christ.

John 14:6 KJVA
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way , the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Isaiah 30:21 KJVA
21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying , This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left .

John 12:26 KJVA
26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

Luke 9:23 KJVA
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily , and follow me.

Psalm 64:10 KJVA
10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

Psalm 34:22 KJVA
22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Remember, Israel is the Most High’s servant; if we are outside of his will we are not servants but disobedient, rebellious children; bastards and not sons. Our souls will only be redeemed  if we trust in him (the Most High in Christ); We show we trust in him by believing in him and keeping the commandments.

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:
4 That the LORD may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.

Ecclesiasticus 53:7 - 8 KJVA
7 For in the eight and thirtieth year coming into Egypt, when Euergetes was king, and continuing there some time, I found a book of no small learning: therefore I thought it most necessary for me to bestow some diligence and travail to interpret it;
8 using great watchfulness and skill in that space to bring the book to an end, and set it forth for them also, which in a strange country are willing to learn, being prepared before in manners to live after the law.

The Book of no small learning is the Bible. We must be diligent to study it that we may be able to properly interpret and teach it. We must be ready and willing to learn and show ourselves watchful by reading and observing the prophecies come to pass as it is written.

Ecclesiasticus 2:1 - 8 KJVA

2 Set thy heart aright, and constantly endure, and make not haste in time of trouble.

4 Whatsoever is brought upon thee take cheerfully, and be patient when thou art changed to a low estate.
5 For gold is tried in the fire, and acceptable men in the furnace of adversity.
6 Believe in him, and he will help thee; order thy way aright, and trust in him.

8 Ye that fear the Lord, believe him; and your reward shall not fail.

What is the Responsibility and Role of the Israelite Man?

Ephesians 4:11 - 15 KJVA
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till 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 fulness of Christ:
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:

Romans 12:1 - 3 KVJA
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Study

Ecclesiasticus 21:21 KJVA
21 Learning is unto a wise man as an ornament of gold, and like a bracelet upon his right arm.

1 Timothy 3:1 - 13 KJVA
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, notslanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12 Let the deacons be the husbands of onewife, ruling their children and their ownhouses 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.

To have purchased to oneself a good degree, we must study. Christ commanded us to search the scriptures and to learn of him.

John 5:39 KJVA
39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

Acts 17:10 - 11 KJVA
10 And the brethren immediately sent away* Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: whocoming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily , whether those things were so.

Matthew 11:29 KJVA
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

2 Timothy 3:16 - 17 KJVA
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Ecclesiasticus 6:32 - 37 KJVA
32 My son, if thou wilt, thou shalt be taught: and if thou wilt apply thy mind, thou shalt be prudent.
33 If thou love to hear, thou shalt receive understanding: and if thou bow thine ear, thou shalt be wise,
34 Stand in the multitude of the elders; and cleave unto him that is wise.
35 Be willing to hear every godly discourse; and let not the parables of understanding escape thee.
36 And if thou seest a man of understanding, get thee betimes unto him, and let thy foot wear the steps of his door.
37 Let thy mind be upon the ordinances of the Lord and meditate continually in his commandments: he shall establish thine heart, and give thee wisdom at thine owns desire.

Ecclesiasticus 27:11 KJVA
11 The discourse of a godly man is always with wisdom; but a fool changeth as the moon.

Ecclesiastes 5:1 - 3 KJVA
1 Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.
2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
3 For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.

2 Timothy 2:15 - 16 KJVA
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

1 Peter 5:10 KJVA
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

The Steadfast Israelite Man Endures

Psalm 34:17 KJVA
17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

Psalms 38:15 - 22 KJVA
15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
16 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
17 For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.
18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.
21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.

9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Isaiah 30:20 - 21 KJVA
20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:

2 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.
3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.

Ezekiel 34:2 - 12 KJVA
2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
3 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.
4 The diseased have ye not strengthened , neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken , neither have ye brought again that which was driven away , neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.
5 And they were scattered , because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.
6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
7 Therefore, ye shepherds , hear the word of the LORD;
8 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd , neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;
9 Therefore, O ye shepherds , hear the word of the LORD;
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds ; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out .
12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress sin it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country :
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near , he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35 And the husbandmen took his servants,and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son,they said among themselves, This is the heir;come , let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

13 The hireling fleeth , because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know mysheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Matthew 25:31 - 40 KJVA
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty , and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in :
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him,saying , Lord, when saw we thee an hungred , and fed thee? Or thirst , and gave thee drink ?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in ? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Zechariah 11:17 KJVA

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

James 2:7-12 KJVA
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
