|The Kingdom of Heaven on Earth: Community Government|
Many papers and books have been written on the subject "The Kingdom of God". There is no reason to reiterate what has already been said.
What is important, is to understand what "The Kingdom" means to the 'Yahowah IS 1' Community.
The Community asserts that there is no doubt that the primary theme of Yahoshua's (in Aramaic, in Greek 'Ieesous', in English 'Jesus') ministry-teaching was on the subject of "The Kingdom of God/Heaven". The "Lord's Prayer" is cited to make this point: that this teaching included the concept of having "The Father's Will" be performed on earth, just as it is being performed in Heaven. This is interpreted as: having YHWH's judgments and edicts be the governance of mankind on earth, too.
For this reason, the 'Yahowah IS 1' Community will at least try to govern itself by the judgments and edicts found in both the Hebrew and Greek Texts. Many of the instructions in the Texts are about community life, and what to do when something is not "right".
As a foundational statement: it is asserted that every letter of the Hebrew/Aramaic Text remains valid, (Matthew 5:17-20 as it is written in the Greek Text!), and every word is to be considered when making decisions and judgments. This assertion is a "general statement", and allows for debates on the variations in manuscripts and interpretations of the Text.
It is also acknowledged that today there are differences in cultural circumstances, and several significant changes in physical realities. Such differences prevent us from administrating all of the teachings and commands of YHWH exactly as written. This is a change in administration, not a change in moral principles.
Thus, it is asserted that everything written in the Text is given to Yahowah's Community for a deeper reason. Behind each law, teaching, and ordinance there are spiritual principles which Yahowah wants us to understand. For these reasons, every word of the Hebrew Text is deemed as being germane for making decisions and judgments, but not everything can be administrated verbatim. In such cases, the Community is to discern the deeper and spiritual principles being taught, and make decisions and judgments accordingly.
It is understood that the 'Yahowah IS 1' Community has no physical "Temple Complex", and therefore will not attempt to govern by those instructions dealing with the Temple. However, any applicable principles behind the "Temple Laws" which may be germane, will be considered in any judgments and edicts which must be made by the Community.
It is understood that the 'Yahowah IS 1' Community has no Priesthood performing "Temple Duties", and therefore will not attempt to govern by those instructions dealing with the priests and their duties. However, any applicable principles behind the "Priesthood Duties" which may be germane, will be considered in any judgments and edicts which must be made by the Community.
It is understood that the 'Yahowah IS 1' Community has no "slavery", nor many other "cultural laws and customs" which were prevalent 3,500 years ago, and therefore will not attempt to govern by those instructions dealing with these different "cultural laws and customs". However, any applicable principles behind these "cultural laws and customs" which may be germane, will be considered in any judgments and edicts which must be made by the Community.
It is understood that when the time comes that the 'Yahowah IS 1' Community is provided with such missing objects, duties, cultural institutions and customs (as provided to the Community as YandY decide), then the appropriate Texts will again be administered verbatim, and directly included in its judgments and edicts.
That is, the instructions in the Hebrew and Greek Texts have not gone away; it is only that some things are administrated differently, while some things are missing.
After understanding all of the above, please also understand: essentially the 'Yahowah IS 1' Community deems every saint to be growing in maturity, graciousness, knowledge, and wisdom. We understand that there will be differences in the level of maturity, graciousness, knowledge, and wisdom between individuals, so we expect it. It is the individual saint himself, alone, which will stand in front of their Creator at Judgment.
Education is the process of giving another person enough believed information, that they become convinced to change from one opinion to another. If "the truth" is not presented in such a way that it can be both understood and believed, then it is not their fault that they are unconvinced.
Even the Truth, if presented poorly, cannot be understood.
Ultimately, each saint is responsible for their own self-determination. Therefore, we want to allow each saint to choose for themselves in those matters that are "under debate", or which are a matter of "preference" (differences in Administration).
The 'Yahowah IS 1' Community will make every effort to uphold a saint's unique self-determination, and encourage them to follow their own conscience in such matters.
|The Solar System Is A Witnesses To The Creator:|
The five major planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) each have their own unique orbit around the sun.
Their orbits do not even follow the same plane, and each travels at a different speed.
Even so, the time it takes each planet to circle once around the sun is a value that modern science has measured with incredible accuracy.
Now, if we add their orbits together, what do we get?
A planet's sidereal cycle is the time it takes the planet to circle once around the sun, where the start and finish point is the same. If you simply add the time it takes each planet to make (7 times 7) 49 laps around the sun, you arrive at 2,160 years, which is one astronomical age.
This mathematical fact is far beyond the possibility of just being a result of "random chance".
