Over the last almost 10 years now, I have done my best to d defend the HR Movement as the need arose. I no longer will continue to do this.I am not a defense lawyer, but a torah pursuant believer in the Messiah Yeshua. For those who walk in the ways of the King and call themselves Israel, there is no need for labels. However it appears that certain labels will always continue to do what they do.
Instead my focus will be solely on growing the body and those who seek to walk the ways of Ancient Covenant.
You know, the things that matter.

How about some context this morning.
From the Social Science Commentary on the Book of Acts.
Hospitality in the ancient Mediterranean world might be defined as the process by means of which an outsider’s status is changed from stranger to guest. It is quite different from entertaining ingroup members (friends, family, fellow villagers). In hospitality (Greek: xenia) the outsider is “received” and socially transformed from stranger to guest. The process of hospitality is crucial, given the human tendency to treat outsiders as simply nonhuman (the social basis for torture, war, unconcern for distributive justice, racism, genocide, and so on). If strangers are not to be eliminated, either physically or socially (see Matt 10:14–23), they have to be “received,” or shown hospitality. The process has three stages:
1. Evaluating the stranger. This is usually done with some test about whether guest status is possible. Since the stranger is potentially anything, he must be tested as to whether he can subscribe to the rules of the new culture. Officials (Josh 2:2) or concerned citizenry (Gen 19:5) might conduct such tests. On the other hand, invasion from the outside might simply be repelled (see Mark 5:17, where the Gerasenes ask the stranger, Jesus, to leave; or Luke 9:53, where the Samaritans “would not receive him,” perhaps because he would not be a proper guest “because his face was set toward Jerusalem”). An invitation to speak can be a test (Acts 13:14–15), while letters of recommendation can excuse one from a test, although sometimes not (see, for example, 2 and 3 John; Rom 16:3–16; 1 Thess 5:12–13). Frequently the ritual of foot washing marks the movement from stranger to guest (see Gen 18:4; 19:2; 24:32; notably lacking in Luke 7:36–50).
2. The stranger as guest. In the process of hospitality, this is the transitional or liminal phase. A range of amenities may follow, concluding with a meal and an offer of an overnight stay. To fulfill the role of guest, the stranger must at least understand and follow the conventions that relate to hospitality and define the behavior expected of him/her. S/he must know how to play the role of guest—thus the Greek distinction between: xenoi (strangers who know how to behave as Greek guests) and barbaroi (strangers who know nothing at all, not even the language—hence who are totally uncivilized). The appearance of a stranger in a community where he had neither kin nor friends serves as a challenge to the community. A person willing to show hospitality takes in (“receives”) the stranger and serves as patron in whom the stranger is socially embedded. Any male accepting hospitality in the ancient Mediterranean places himself in a non-male (actually quasi-female) situation in the household of the host. The stranger is embedded in the honor of the host, just as females in the household are embedded in the honor of the patriarch. Any attack on the stranger’s honor is an attack on the patron, who must defend his guest (as Lot in Genesis 19). In the Synoptic tradition, when Jesus sends the Twelve he expects his core disciples to be “received” by honorable persons (Mark 6:11 par.). Should no hospitality be offered, they are to perform the symbolic (and insulting) action of “shaking off the dust on your feet” (Luke 9:5; 10:11; Acts 13:51; 18:6; see also 22:23). After all, honor is gained by all in the community through the visit of an honorable person. On the other hand, a shameful community is not worthy of the presence of honorable guests.
3. From guest to transformed stranger. This transition sometimes involves another test. At the end of the process of hospitality, the guest is now known to the host. The guest may depart as a friend, having incurred a debt of gratitude toward the host and his/her ingroup, or as an enemy, in which case the honor of the host requires the attempt at satisfaction. (For more information, see Malina 1986; Arterbury 2005).

Are we really wanting context to Scripture?
Many love to use the verses of Mathew 18:15-17 to justify some council judgement upon someone whom they have felt wronged. However I find extremely interesting that we still are pulling out a verse or two without looking at the context of the chapter or more verses surrounding our cherry pickin'.
The beginning of the chapters deals with what, the disciples asking Yeshua which will have more honor in the Kingdom....hmmm.
Should that matter?
There other verse where we see the Sons of Zebedee were seeking to be greater than their own Kingdom brothers to gain Honor?
Yeshua then turns to humility, a quality you cannot fake. A quality that is permanently attached to honor.
Also a tax collector was one of the most shameful positions of the first century. If we are seeking to shame others to be viewed as the most shameful in society, what is our motive?
Matthew 18
1 At that time the taught ones came to יהושע, saying, “Who, then, is greatest in the reign of the heavens?”
2 And יהושע called a little child to Him, set him in their midst,
3 and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become as little children, you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens.
4 “Whoever then humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the reign of the heavens.
5 “And whoever receives one little child like this in My Name receives Me.
6 “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it is better for him that a millstone be hung around his neck, and that he be drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 “Woe to the world because of stumbling-blocks! For it is necessary that stumbling-blocks come, but woe to that man by whom the stumbling-block comes!
8 “And if your hand or foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or crippled, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be thrown into the everlasting fire.
9 “And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be thrown into the fire of GĕHinnom.
10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in the heavens their messengers always see the face of My Father who is in the heavens.
11 “For the Son of Aḏam has come to save what was lost.
12 “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, would he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains, going to seek the one that is straying?
13 “And if he should find it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray.
14 “Thus it is not the desire of your Father who is in the heavens that one of these little ones should be lost.
15 “And if your brother sins against you, go and convict him, between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother.
16 “But if he does not hear, take with you one or two more, that ’by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word might be established.’
17 “And if he refuses to hear them, say it to the assembly. And if he refuses even to hear the assembly, let him be to you like the nations and a tax collector.

"Day of Atonement. While the first half of Revelation appears to be modeled on the tamid or daily service of the Hebrew cultic system, Rev 12-22 reflects the annual service of Yom Kippur. We have seen earlier that, starting with Rev 11:1-2, the elements of Yom Kippur are alluded to throughout the second half of the book."
Ranko Stefanovic
So why would this Book be so enveloped with this language?
It is because most agree that this Letter was written or at least given to John in 69 of the common era. The significance of this is that in just a year or less, the Temple would be destroyed in 70 CE.
Temple Service is key.

Did you know that one's Honor, Clothing and Wealth were publicly displayed in the ancient world?
The elite and kings were always concerned with making sure they paraded their Honor and wealth in many public arenas.
Wedding feasts and birthday celebration feasts were often used by the elite and kings as a means to claim honor through the diplay oftheir table setting and the manner in which they dined.
Wedding feasts were perfect for a public display of how much wealth one had, festive clothing, coverlets, music, food and.....wine.
So now the Miracle of Changing Water into wine is John Chapter 2 has Context!
Yeshua, His Mother and disciples all are attending the wedding feast when they run out of .....wine. Remember in the opening chapter of John, Yeshua is ascribed 6 specific roles including "The King of Israel" in John1:49.
At the wedding feast, the common arena for Kings and elite to display their honor and wealth is why Miriam says...
Joh 2:3 And when they were short of wine, the mother of יהושע said to Him, “They have no wine.”
We know what happens next....
Joh 2:4 יהושע said to her, “Woman, what is that to Me and to you? My hour has not yet come.”
Joh 2:5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever He says to you.”
Joh 2:6 And there were six stone water-jugs standing there, according to the mode of cleansing of the Yehuḏim, each holding two or three measures.
Joh 2:7 יהושע said to them, “Fill the water-jugs with water.” And they filled them up to the brim.
Joh 2:8 And He said to them, “Now draw out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it.
Joh 2:9 But when the master of the feast had tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from – though the servants who had drawn the water knew – the master of the feast called the bridegroom,
Joh 2:10 and said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when they have drunk, then that which is poorer. You have kept the good wine until now.”
Joh 2:11 This, the beginning of the signs, יהושע did in Qanah of Galil, and manifested His Honor. And His taught ones believed in Him.
Achieved a greater Honor by means of showing His wealth from the Kingdom on High.

The Bigger Picture of Hanukkah.
You will see this post over and over the next few months.
What if we could look at Hanukkah from a different perspective? One that all of us should recognize and maybe begin to see this celebration in a new light. Pun Intended.
What if I told you that the historical events surrounding Antiochus Epiphanes and his desecration of the Temple was a foreshadowing and a glimpse into the work of the Father and Yeshua?
This maybe a little hard for us to swallow, however if there are still some on the fence about the celebration of Hanukkah(minus any dogmas or traditions that one objects too, sheesh, do we need that disclaimer?),
I believe that by seeing Hanukkah from its larger spectrum of Restoration, none of us can really have a problem with its recognition.
Here it is.
Antiochus invades Israel and defiles the earthly Temple and wreaking havoc and chaos in the earthly realm ...right?
Judah Maccabee leads a revolt against the forces of evil and chaos then cleanses the Temple of this evil to restore it back to its original holy state and to free Israel...right?
You and I have committed the same atrocities to the Heavenly Temple by our sin causing chaos and therefore needs cleansing and defeated in some way.
Yeshua is the one that has lead the revolt against this evil and chaos in order to restore the Heavenly Temple and all Creation back to its Original Holy State.
Antiochus is a portrait of the nations..and yes, you and I.
Judah is a portrait of Yeshua.
This is sufficient enough for me to recognize the events and the prophetic portrait of he work of my Messiah.
Please consider sharing the post to get more people informed on the importance of Hanukkah.

Why the adversary hates us so badly and it being connected to the Honor of Our King and His Kingdom.
Remember we talked about how the Honor and Wealth of a King is linked to the Lands he owned. The more Land, the more Wealth and the more Honor the King acquired.
Kingdom-Honor- Land.
So Satan has been cast out of the Heavenly Kingdom down to the earthly , both of which still belong to YHWH. You and I have an inheritance of the Kingdom through the redemption of Machiach Yeshua.
The adversary will never have the Land or the Honor that YHWH has acquired so he now comes after the very ones granted the inheritance of the Land , of the Honor and of the Kingdom.
This is the context of 1John Chapters 4-5.
4 You are of Elohim, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Mind Blown.

The topic of Justice and Righteousness is fascinating and completely transforms our ideas of true Social Justice instituted and established by the King.
Now with all of the consistent doom and gloom that seems to plague Facebook these days , allow me to share with you some hope.
In context,it is the duty of the King who is appointed onto the Throne to establish "true justice and righteousness" for His people and His Kingdom. He is the One who does this by protecting His people.
He does this by caring for the widow, the orphan, the stranger.
He does this by proclaiming freedom to the captives.
He does this by liberating the slaves.
He does this by action.
He does this by lifting the lowly on high and by bending the knee of the stiff-necked.
He does this by cancelling the debts of the debtor.
He does this by raising up the oppressed and destroying the oppressors.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the King establishes Justice and Righteousness by restoring the inheritance back to the lost.
With all that being said, with all the trouble that is on the earth, and with all the trouble that we know is to come...
Do you maybe now realize a little better that the King who establishes "True Justice and Righteousness" cannot allow His people who are walking according to that same justice and righteousness to be oppressed by His own actions, or oppressed alongside the oppressors. The key is to whether we are worthy of being under His protection of justice and righteousness and not considered as an enemy and an oppressor. Whether we will be counted as the sheep or as the goats.
Yes, Tribulation is on its way at some point, guaranteed.
However I pray that we all be encouraged in knowing that HE is Our KING who is the only one who can establish HIS JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS. Be encouraged that true justice and righteousness for Israel will be established.
Zep 2:3 Seek יהוה, all you meek ones of the earth, who have done His right-ruling. Seek righteousness, seek meekness, if so be that you are hidden in the day of wrath of יהוה.

"Envy, the Evil Eye and...Spitting?"

These 3 things are inherently connected not only in the ancient world, but also found in Scripture.
Lemme splain...
Envy and the Evil Eye by themselves are interwoven all throughout ancient cultures including Israel, which is why we see the topic heavily in Scripture. This topic is amazing and I will do an in depth teaching on this as it arises in the Gospel Cycle Project.
But here is a nugget and how these 2 items are attached to spitting.

The evil eye was a real idea in the ancient world and people feared for those in which they believed possessed it. They believed by receiving a glance from someone that it could ultimately effect them in some manner. Here is an excerpt from The New Testament World by Malina..
"Envy thus proceeds from the heart thru the eyes. The usual suspects thought to harbour Evil Eye abilities were family enemies,strangers, outsiders and deviants as well as the physically deformed, disabled and the the BLIND."
All of these people were thought to be envious of all the others that did not suffer the misfortunes that they did. So they were said to have the Evil Eye burning with envy.

Now, ancient peoples believed the eye lurked everywhere, there different rituals in d8fferdnt cultures for warding of its powerful glance. Amulets, a staring eye carved into a wall or floor which served as a mirror to reflect the Evil Eye back onto the pososser.
AND...even when meeting with an epileptic, a lame man or a stranger or a blind man, evil eye effects were thwarted of by....SPITTING!

Mind blown yet?

So what does Yeshua do here in the these verse of Mark 8 to heal this blind man, the so called possessor of the Evil Eye defined by the cultural norm?

He Spits in the Guy's Eyes!!!!!😂🤣

Yeshua always takes the ideas and cultures in which they held and flips them inside out.

22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.

23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.

24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.

25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

26 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.

Yeshua and Hanukkah.
As we come closer to the beginning of Hanukkah,we will see many discussing these verses of John 10. I wold to propose some context as to why the Jews were so angry as Yeshua was talking at the Temple during Hanukkah.
Joh 10:23 And יהושע was walking in the Set-apart Place, in the porch of Shelomoh.
Joh 10:24 So the Yehuḏim surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in suspense? If You are the Messiah, say to us plainly.”
Joh 10:25 יהושע answered them, “I have told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s Name, they bear witness concerning Me.
Joh 10:26 “But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you.
Joh 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
Joh 10:28 “And I give them everlasting life, and they shall by no means ever perish, and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.
Joh 10:29 “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all. And no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.
Joh 10:30 “I and My Father are one.”
Joh 10:31 Again the Yehuḏim picked up stones to stone Him.
Joh 10:32 יהושע answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. Because of which of these works do you stone Me?”
Joh 10:33 The Yehuḏim answered Him, saying, “We do not stone You for a good work, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself Elohim.”
Joh 10:34 יהושע answered them, “Is it not written in your own Torah, ‘I said, “You are elohim” ’?
Joh 10:35 “If He called them elohim, to whom the word of Elohim came – and it is impossible for the Scripture to be broken –
Joh 10:36 do you say of Him whom the Father set apart and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of Elohim’?
Joh 10:37 “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;
Joh 10:38 but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”

Now this is a period of time not too far away from 164-165 and the time in which the Maccabees took back Jerusalem from Antiochus Epiphanes right?
Well remember what Antiochus' name meant in the Greek..."God Manifest"
or son of god.
Check out verse 33 again,
Joh 10:33 The Yehuḏim answered Him, saying, “We do not stone You for a good work, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself Elohim.”
They could not see their need for Yeshua as the Broker to restore their inherited status and honor back that only the True Patron YHWH could give them. They stayed tunnel visioned on the past and only thought another was claiming to be God Manifest.
However Yeshua's works proved that HE was indeed that Mediator, that Broker.
Joh 10:37 “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;
Joh 10:38 but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”

Status and Humility.
In a world and society such as the 1st Century, as well as our own, one of which that is more concerned with status and honor than that of humility and servant hood..these types of verses take on a completely new context.
Rom 12:3 For I say, through the favour which has been given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he should think, but to think soberly, as Elohim has given to each a measure of belief.
The people of the ancient world were enveloped in their status within society. You had to maintain your ascribed status at all costs, no matter the rank. I am seeing more and more it is the same with us today. We achieve or acquire some "status" , some "honor" among our peers and we do all that we possibly can to maintain that honor status at all costs. This is why humility is so prevalent in the New Testament writings. If we claim to be wanting a walk like Maschiach, then we cannot ignore the facts...yes facts, that He did care about His Status of Honor in Adonai's Kingdom, but left it to restore my Status back into the Kingdom.
You see religion, no matter whether it is Judaism, Christianity, Hebrew Roots, Messianic believer title or whatever, if you control the system, if you dictate the rules to the "status quo" (pun intended) , then you indeed control who is considered honorable, who is considered of elite class, and those whom you or I dictate that are below us.
This is not humility. This is not the will of the Creator.
We must stop thinking so highly of ourselves. Your or my position as a Teacher, as Congregational Leader, as a Worship leader, as a Youth Pastor, as a Spiritual Author, as a Scholar, all titles and statuses are void if we do not walk humbly before our King.
This is the meaning of humility. Backed by integrity. Yes we will fall, but it is about getting back up, asking for forgivness and getting back to working for the right Kingdom.
Status in any earthly kingdom has been the focus for thousands of years and still continues. However a huge element to the Gospel is that Adonai sent Yeshua to give all status and honor in HIS Kingdom to those who seek to be servants.
Php 2:1 If, then, there is any encouragement in Messiah, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of Spirit, if any affection and compassion,
Php 2:2 make my joy complete by being of the same mind, having the same love, one in being and of purpose,
Php 2:3 doing none at all through selfishness or self-conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Php 2:4 Each one should look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Php 2:5 For, let this mind be in you which was also in Messiah יהושע,
Php 2:6 who, being in the form of Elohim, did not regard equality with Elohim a matter to be grasped,
Php 2:7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, and came to be in the likeness of men.
Php 2:8 And having been found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, death even of a stake.
Php 2:9 Elohim, therefore, has highly exalted Him and given Him the Name which is above every name,
Php 2:10 that at the Name of יהושע every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
Php 2:11 and every tongue should confess that יהושע Messiah is Master, to the esteem of Elohim the Father.
Php 2:12 So that, my beloved, as you always obeyed – not only in my presence, but now much rather in my absence – work out your own deliverance with fear and trembling,
Php 2:13 for it is Elohim who is working in you both to desire and to work for His good pleasure.
Php 2:14 Do all matters without grumblings and disputings,
Php 2:15 in order that you be blameless and faultless, children of Elohim without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
Php 2:16 holding on to the Word of life, for a boast to me in the day of Messiah, that I have not run in vain or laboured in vain.

Wow...the Context thickens.
Why would they "spit" in his face? It's connected to envy and they believed he was an outcast and a holder of the Evil eye....this is getting kerazy how much we do not even know about social context.
Matthew 26
57 And those who had seized יהושע led Him away to Qayapha the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together.
58 But Kĕpha followed Him at a distance to the courtyard of the high priest, and he went in and sat with the servants to see the end.
59 And the chief priests, and the elders, and all the council were seeking false witness against יהושע to put Him to death,
60 but found none. Although many false witnesses came forward, they found none. But at last two false witnesses came forward,
61 and said, “This one said, ‘I am able to destroy the Dwelling Place of Elohim and to build it in three days.’ ”
62 And the high priest stood up and said to Him, “Have You no answer to make? What do these witness against You?”
63 But יהושע remained silent. So the high priest said to Him, “I put You to oath, by the living Elohim that You say to us if You are the Messiah, the Son of Elohim.”
64 יהושע said to him, “You have said it. Besides I say to you, from now on you shall see the Son of Aḏam sitting at the right hand of the Power, Psa. 110:1 and coming on the clouds of the heaven.” Dan. 7:13.
65 Then the high priest tore his garments, saying, “He has blasphemed! Why do we need any more witnesses? See, now you have heard His blasphemy!
66 “What do you think?” And they answering, said, “He is liable to death.”
67 Then they spat in His face and beat Him, and others slapped Him,
68 saying, “Prophesy to us, Messiah! Who is the one who struck You?”

How can Yeshua have the Legal right to sit on the Throne of David if Jehoiachin's line and descendants are cursed in Jeremiah 22?  Huh? Huh? Huh?

Check out Matthew One.

Mat 1:11 And Josiah fathered Jehoiachin and his brothers, at the time they were carried away to Babylon.
Mat 1:12 And after the carrying away to Babylon, Jehoiachin fathered Shealtiel, and Shealtiel fathered Zerubbabel.
Mat 1:13 And Zerubbabel fathered Abiud, and Abiud fathered Eliakim, and Eliakim fathered Azor.
Mat 1:14 And Azor fathered Sadoc, and Sadoc fathered Achim, and Achim fathered Eliud.
Mat 1:15 And Eliud fathered Eleazar, and Eleazar fathered Matthan, and Matthan fathered Jacob.
Mat 1:16 And Jacob fathered Joseph, the husband to be of Mary, of whom Yeshua was born, who is called Messiah.
So Jehoiachin is listed in the genealogy of Joseph. But if he is cursed from the Throne, there has to be a plan.

It is thru Legal Adoption understood in the ancient world.

Because Joseph is the adopted father of Yeshua, that gives him the legal status to the earthly throne.

It is by this same legality, that Adonai uses to establish us as sons and daughters and therefore heirs and citizens to the Kingdom of Elohim thru the Spirit of Adoption that Paul speaks of sealed by the Ruach.

Honor, Integrity of the King, and the Written Word.
The 3 areas above are linked and locked together . This is why the books of Kings have been written for thousands of years. It records the office of that King according to his deeds of bringing honor or shame to the office in which he was entrusted. The written word is a witness for or against the honor of that individual.
This holds so much greater significance when applying this to YHWH, Yeshua, Scripture, and the ones who vowed to walk in the Covenant. Scripture is the Written Word of the Deeds of YHWH our Suzerain. It is backed and supported by His Integrity and His Honor. He swoar an oath, and has kept it by action. Yeshua is part of that Written Word. Backed by more Honor and Integrity of the office of Machiach. Further down the line of those who hold to that very Wriiten Word of Covenant, it is on us with our integrity whether our lives will bring honor or shame to Our King.
I have failed in tremendous factions to maintain bringing honor to YHWH and Yeshua and my family.
Everyday is a new beginning and I pray that as the King writes the book of my life, that in the end the word of this written testimony weighs more to the honor than the shame on His scales of Justice.
Sure there will be more to say on this matter...
