 Brother David

You're words are well spoke, wise and received by me as such.

i'm awake as well,been since midnite, reading this very thread, and to YOU, I humbly apologize for "taking it off the tracks", that wasn't right.

what I write next, is neither "excuse" or "justification" for wronging YOU, which I am VERY contrite about. Saints that actually KNOW me, here at SI, will tell I speak from the heart, and what I write next is from the heart: when I was 7, and my beloved grandmother dropped me off at synagogue to learn both Hebrew and Torah, I was so thrilled, so happy, because God has always been so REAL to me, right to this very day, this second. They didn't have to force me there, God was THERE, all around me, and with me.

To speak in Hebrew was never "foreign" to me, a second language, it would just flow off my tongue, and in accent, no hint of an American accent, it was holy language to me. Even though all the other children, were also "American Jews", I felt different from them, my heart even then was canted towards Israel.

in the back of this beautiful synagogue, built entirely of travertine (the same stone as the Wall) there was a long display case filled with antiquities from ancient Israel, and I wound spend hours back there, gazing and pondering. y heroes were men like Joseph, King Hezekiah, and King David...and they did not seem to me to be far off historical figures, but very close, very to be emulated, and it occurred to me that the same blood that flowed thru my veins , flowed through theirs, we were one......and then at age 9, I saw Renais;s 28 minute B/w holocaust film , "Night and Fog".....everything changed after that....and brother David, I have much more of my heart to reveal to you, but i'm weary and very disheartened , but I do grieve I caused you grief,,,,please know to these others, I will deal with them. God love you

"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Re: Brother David


It is absolutely wrong to name-call, slander, and speak towards each other in the Lord this way. This must "STOP" an unsaved world is watching as well as believers. There are millions of doctrinal views on the internet posted everywhere, we will not condone a repeated posting of the same arguments.

Myself believe it was the Lord that gathered physical Israel in the current state and has an end times purpose for them. But I trust the Lord by the Holy Spirit will show other blood bought saints that through the reading of God's Word. I have no interest arguing or forcing all saints into this.

I have received repeated emails from concerned brothers who some of them do not participate on the forums but are sad to see these threads where arguments and slander are occurring. It is really a shame to the Lord's Name, this has to stop.

We must serve and love each other as brothers and allow at times the Lord to correct a wrong way of thinking or those spiritual "gently" teach. This is NOT happening in these threads and it is unprofitable for those reading them.

I read this passage from the letter to the Philippians this morning:

2 I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 And[a] I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Do you notice that there were 2 sisters mentioned here, Euodia and Syntyche who were continually arguing and not unified in the Lord. This is the only time they are mentioned in the New Testament and it is for all saints to read through Church History as a "warning" against arguing and never coming to peace with others though disagreements occur.

New Living Translation
Now I appeal to Euodia and Syntyche. Please, because you belong to the Lord, settle your disagreement.

It brings shame to Christ's Name if this is the testimony coming from the Church to the world. We are asking brethren to pray and seek the Lord concerning this matter. We are not condoning these on-going behaviours on the forums on SermonIndex.
