Do we, and when do we say a blessing with our meal? (What does Scripture say?)

bless_this_foodIn America (and most of the world) we are very accustomed to saying a blessing “over the food” or “blessing our food” before we eat. Where did this tradition come from and what does The Bible (Instructions) say about? Of course regardless of your understanding/insight there is no harm in praying before/during/and after…there is very few circumstances where “too much” prayer/blessings exist, but in regards to our “Instructions” given by The Father in His Word, see Deuteronomy 8:10 and measure your traditions against His Word.  “When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.  Shalom Shalom!bless_his_name

Steps to bring correction to another

wpid-blessyou.gifIf you are going to come to me on Shabbat…and “Bring my sin to light“…how I am not keeping Torah….do yourself a favor…find the INSTRUCTION/COMMANDMENT in The Book (with two witnesses in Scripture) so that you will know you are not bringing error as fact.
In the case in point, if you are going to call me out for having “One Wife” and not have “many wives”…I suggest you find the Scripture in The Law that Commands me to take many wives…and I dont mean one that says if my natural brother marries and dies….there is Instruction which says THAT mans Brother is to take the widow (if she is willing) and marry her and produce a child….I am otherwise unaware of ANY Instruction to take many maidens as you can. Also I think there is plenty said in there about those of us who got married with a covenant “Forsaking all others” and of course….YHWH would not have us be liars and oath breakers….Also we are to follow the law of man unless the Law of YHWH commands us counter….in which case we obey YHWH. So to come to me and tell me to take other men’s wives they have grew tired of…or another man’s wife who I could “advise” as a pastor to leave him….is not Instructed…thus I am in no error in having one wife to whom I keep my oath, my word, and to which YHWH was witness…He Witnesses and knows all.
This is long before we get in to the deeper issues of what The Messiah said on the matter, what it was in meant/built/designed in the Garden….or the requirements to be in leadership role in His Service…Husband of one wife, not prone to gossip…
So we should all take correction from that which is Written, but to preach another doctrine based on what is Written with our own wants and desires mixed in it……I encourage to study the matter, pray on it, and pray…if “The Spirit” leads you to do things, then by all means if you are sure of it, do it…but don’t add to The Word to condemn other men….Shalom Shalom

This is a personal message from Pastor Mike about recent “input” from others.

defend_othersI have received over the past week or so several communications condemning/ correcting/ ordering/ demanding changes in our views, our efforts to help others, or for our public support/ condemnation in one area of another.  Since many of these were very personal in nature I wanted to address them openly here so in the future so I could direct future (inappropriate) contact of this sort to a “Statement”. We welcome insight, suggestions, and ideas to help us improve how we help others, and improve ourselves, the intent and motivation being key.  If you wish to read the statement click <SEE MORE> below, blessings upon all who are His, and Shalom upon you and your house!  Be about The Father’s Work, and show love one for another!  Pastor Mike
