I WON'T BACK DOWN

1st CORINTHIANS ~Chapter 5


If Christians would get back to DOING what SCRIPTURE TELLS them to DO, the Church would not be so weak.

The pastor is NOT GOD - the pastor is just a man, and we do not answer to the pastor; we, as Christians, answer ONLY to Elohim.

"Going to Church" is for The Church to gather to worship/praise Elohim, exhort Elohei, amplify the Body, be Yeshua's example among the Body, expect to be visited by The Ruach, expect a blessing/healing, and be strengthened to move forward as Ambassadors of Yeshua so that we can be effective in getting His Gospel message our to a dying world.

We do not gather to worship the pastor or to praise him and his family!

We do not gather to turn a blind eye to open sin and slap backs during networking contacts!

We are NOT to preach the message of vineyard ministries!

If Christians would get back to DOING what SCRIPTURE TELLS them to DO, the Church would not be so weak.

It is generally reported that immorality is practiced among you, such immorality as is no found even among the heathen. They say that one of you has taken to himself his father’s wife. And you seem to be proud of it, instead of being sorry about it and expelling from your membership the man who did this shameful deed. For my part, I am present with you in spirit even though I am absent from you in body, and I have already passed sentence on the man who has done this, just as if I were present. Therefore, call a meeting in the Name of Adoani Yeshua Ha'Mashiach, and I will be present with you in spirit by the authority of Adonai Yeshua Ha’Mashiach. We would then hand this man over to Lucifer to be physically disciplined, in order that his spirit may be saved on the Day of The Lord.

It is not right that you should boast about this case. Do you not know that a little yeast leavens the whole lump? Therefore, clean out the old leaven, so that you may be as a lump of fresh dough, unleavened. For Mashiach, our Passover, has been sacrificed for us. So let us celebrate the festival with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth, not with old leaven of vice and wickedness.

In a letter I wrote that you should not associate with immoral people, I did not mean that you should not have anything to do with those of the unchurched world who are immoral or greedy, extortioners or idolaters. For to that, you would have to leave this world altogether. No, I wrote to say that you must not associate with anyone who is a so-called-Christian “brother”, if he is immoral, or if he is a miser, an idolater, a slanderer, a drunkard, or a swindler. One should not even eat with such a person.

What business have I to be judging outsiders? It is not for you to judge those within the church? And it is Elohei Who judges those on the outside. In conclusion, expel the wicked man from your congregation.
