Why Emails and not Social?

Emails & Questions
Why Email Responses and Avoiding Social Media:

Q: Why do you focus on email exchanges and contact as opposed to social media?

A: Those who control the narrative have not been able to control email.  Email is more selective and a better conduit through with believes can share and support one another.  It is also more selective in the sharing and while there may be disagreement the disagreement is not so easily spread as hate and even showing off for the crowd, as so many do in the social media arenas.  For those not concerned with being censored and who enjoy being in the public eye, fine, but the majority of the public are in it for self-gratification.  By email, on believer can connect with another and then one or the other with another, passing on good information and true and encouraging each other in a more personal way.  Private conversation, sharing encouragement and studies as those seeking the truth among like minded people, people who are called into basic training.  A little salt here and a little salt over there, like planting a seed here and a seed there, on good ground, as opposed to trying to plant in a field of weeds, which Social media has become, or always has been.  

More on, Why Email Responses and Avoiding Social Media:

Reasoning through Email instead of Social media -- Casting the Pearls of His Truth to the dogs and His words to the pigs?  Twitter, TicTok and much of Face Book are used as the feeding trough for all of the dogs and pigs -- don't shoot the messenger.

– I find this type of communication -- via email -- much more private, sharing only what is permitted, as opposed to the more immediate social networks like Face Book or Twitter, where words are exchanged and later regretted. Sometimes, all the time, really, serious discussion cannot be engaged in on a social media outlet.  The influence is too strong to be fake or nasty when subjects like religion or politics are dumped out for all to see.  It is a biblical principle not to engage in the public square of stupid, silly and ignorance.

(Mat 7:6) "Don't give that which is holy to the dogs, neither throw your pearls before the pigs, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

Remember, those are the words or our Savior, YaHshua.  And who do you suppose the dogs and the pigs are?  When YaHshua spoke those words, it would have been assumed He meant gentiles -- non-Israelis.  In some cases there is a certain comparison, but make no mistake -- the people of Israel are the original chosen children of YaHWeH, but since the New Promise Covenant, a covenant offered to the gentile and Jew alike, the message is not for Jews only -- back to the Days of Noah, the Message presenting the Offer is open to everyone. So then, who are the dogs and the swine today?  At the time our Savior walked among the people, prior to His going to the Cross, the Old Covenant was in full effect and His words rang true to the ears of the Jews and other Israelis.  Later, after the Cross, these words would have added meaning, not for Jews only but for gentiles too.   The people of Judah's first excitement over YaHshua and His ability to heal, was soon squashed by Jewish authority enlisting the help of the Roman governance, taking this miracle worker to the Cross.  

Entering the Time of the Gentiles (Luke 21:24), with the partition of division (a curtain) refusing access to the Holy of Holy, the place of the Ark, a symbol of His Seat, protected by Ark Angels on either side.  And at the death of our Lord and Savior, YaHshua, on the Roman Cross, this partition (curtain) ripped from top to bottom, no longer denying access only that one time of the year, and even more, giving access to those called "Gentiles" (Mat 27:51).  A new Priesthood with YaHshua as High Priest, even though He was not from the linage of the Priest of Israel, but from one even older, one founded before Israel -- a New Order, founded on that of Melchizedek -- Heb 2:9; 6:19-20; 7:11 & Ps 110:4 & Genesis 14:18 -- a King and Priest, all in one.  

It is clear that before the Cross, the Old Covenant of separation, gentiles, as the pagans and Israel as the chosen was in effect -- a division between the two people.  Yet, YaHshua, when confronted with sound reasoning and great faith, He granted the request of a gentile woman, even though He clearly states that He was sent, specifically, to the House of Israel, -- hear how He says this -- I was not sent to anyone, but the LOST sheep of the House of Israel ...   Sheep without a shepherd.  It is only later, years after His Crucifixion that a ruling had to be made at the council at Jerusalem, about how to handle the entrance of gentiles into the fold of lost sheep, after mulitple events, demonstrated by the Holy Spirit that Gentiles were to be accepted into this New Covenant -- Yes, Gentiles too --  Acts 11:18 --  And the decision made, not because the Jewish converts wanted this, no, but for the evidence made it clear, as the account we find recorded in Acts chapter 15 makes clear.  But, even before this, our Lord YaHshua demonstrates the view of Jew and Gentile separation, even, at first, denying a gentile woman, whom He calls a "dog", by comparison, but relents in the face of such great faith in Him.  

(Mat 15:22) Behold, a Canaanite woman came out from those borders, and cried, saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, you son of David! My daughter is severely demonized!"
(Mat 15:23) But He answered her not a word. His disciples came and begged him, saying, "Send her away; for she cries after us."  (He ignored her as she drove His disciples crazy)
(Mat 15:24) But He answered, "I wasn't sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of Israel."  (His coming was to the House of Israel only -- this would not change until AFTER He went to the Cross -- AFTER those to whom He came First would kill Him)
(Mat 15:25) But she came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, help me."  (She bowed before Him, literally blocking his way)
(Mat 15:26) But He answered, "It is not appropriate to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."  (Gentiles, like this Canaanite woman were considered no better than dumb animals, unclean animals and some in the Jewish communities see the Gentiles around them in this very same way, to this day)
(Mat 15:27) But she said, "Yes, Lord, but even the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
(Mat 15:28) Then YaHshua answered her, "Woman, great is your faith! Be it done to you even as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that hour.  (What a perfect answer and this proves that the Spirit of the Living God, can be reasoned with, even to changing His Holy Mind -- think about it)

The dogs, and the swine, remain identified as those outside of His called congregation, a mixture of lost Israeli and gentiles, being fed from the same root and vine, once only accessible to Israel/Judah, now, Gentiles too.  It took years, however in that first century, with one Holy Spirit demonstration after another, before the Jewish congregation, and even the Apostles themselves would come to see this truth -- even to the calling of the Apostle Paul for the specific task of going to the Gentiles -- Acts 9:15.  


In keeping the atmosphere much more civil we choose to use email contact and exchanges over all other forms.  Some things in His truth are not appropriate food for those not conceived yet.  Too many are offended, too easily, in this day of moral decay.  Even the preaching of the Gospel in a public forum may be a case in point but is engaged in under the excuse of creating converts.  This may be the calling of some and they must, eventually, pay the price but a calling is a calling.  

WordWeb Dictionary, a Calling:  1. The particular occupation for which you are trained
                                                    2.  A strong urge to become religious, or change to some other way of life.

A calling can be to an occupation, or to training for an occupation, combined with a sense or urge to change one's life.  One Body, with many different parts, but all parts called to be a part of that One body.  

(John 14:20)  At that day you shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
Eph 2:18  For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Rom 12:4  For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
Rom 12:5  So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
1Co 10:17  For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
1Co 12:12  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is the Christ (Anointed).

Using Email eliminates most of the drive by stabs and jabs.  Email, allows for much larger discussion and sharing of material, among believing people.  
Using email gives those taking the time to send in a view, an opinion, or a study, time to think about what they are about to say and to present a logical thought or question.  I have gone into many different “Forums” only to end up in the middle of a “slug-fest” – it soon becomes a forum for the Pharisees and the Scribes and the God haters alike.  There is the usual piling on, spiritual kicking and eye gouging all in the name of the religion each thinks they represent.  Of course, for some strange reason, the critics of all religion, particularly Christianity, seem to show up to call everyone idiots – they of all those present demonstrate their lack of understanding and their own ignorance disguised in worldly wisdom.  So, being turned off by such activities and seeing the Internet as a real tool in sharing the faith I have elected to go Email only – the Social Medias seem to have been taken over by the spiritually crippled.   Yes, there are some real truth seekers present but sooner of later they become out numbered.  By email there is a time lapse that lets cooler heads prevail and challenge the critic with some real critical thinking and cuts those off at the knees that just want to be heard by calling other names and presenting themselves as more intellectual.  

The aim of my responses to serious emails sent in by our readers, are not to call names but to encourage and give answers that might offend others who are not spiritually grown enough to keep ignorant remarks to themselves. , however, sometimes naming names cannot be avoided and we are told to expose those we know to be deceived or deceiving others either on purpose or by mistake (Eph 5:11).  

Of course we cannot all possibly have the same degree of revelation or knowledge at the same time, but to discern the truth should be a given for one of our Lord's "called out ones".  Still we are all different personalities and some called to different callings but still, of course, even then, not everyone takes  correction so easily and sometimes a long discussion ensues with many emails being exchanged.  No short hatchet jobs but serious and lengthy discussions sometimes ensue as we all try to get over our life long biases which we have , many times, accepted as truths and when we hear otherwise it can be difficult to deal with.  Still, a truth seeker will not close all doors of ears because the author of real truth will crack through to those He has called or is calling.  

It has always amazed me when someone knows they have a certain truth because they say the Holy Spirit has made this or that known to them.  In such a case the discussion is usually over – how can anyone discuss or even argue with someone that has received the absolute truth of a matter when it comes from the Holy Spirit?  Well, you can’t, as that would be arguing against our Heavenly Father.  Still, I feel obligated in such situations to point out any objection that is counter to the clear written word.  Sure, some of the wording, especially in the KJV, is not so clear but enough of what is written (99.8%) is clear and should take no special interpretation by a truth seeker -- for the revelation of truth is not so difficult, it is overcoming the teaching of the past, the braise of the greater group or groups -- sometimes it is easier to go along to get along.   The word says what it says, as recorded by those inspired to say it and we should recognize this as words of truth that is enough already said and to add to it is to deny enough has already been said or revealed for our time.  In other words there is no longer any more special revelations from our God, as He would only be repeating Himself.  Scritpure is not continually being written.  We have the complete Word and all that we need to know to accept the Testimony of our Lord by His Apostles as our own like confession and testimony that YaHshua is the Risen Son of the Living God, that Ancient of Days, our Heavenly Father, too.  His Word, His words given to men to write down -- ever read the Old Covenant books and read how often it is YaHWeH that is doing the talking?  How often the Apostles quoted the Hebrew Scriptures?  

In the New Covenant we have a similar situation, the Christ YaHshua's words are recorded for us and then His Apostles have left us letters to the various church groups, called ones to learn from.  No more needs to be said, the word has been delivered.  Do not forget, all of the Apostles taught from the words of the Prophets found in what we call the Old Covenant.  Moses was a prophet, even Saul, first King of Israel prophesied but we are not told what he said in his inspired moments.  King David is counted among the Prophets as well and then we have the writings of the other Prophets, some having lived during the same time periods.  These are prophets of record that the  Apostles of the Messiah quoted over and over again.  The Old Covenant was set aside in favor of a New Covenant but the Prophetic Word was not moved aside as the Apostles proved by quoting it so often.  This is a fundamental principle many in the Christian churches ignore.

Much of Bible Prophecy has not been finished or fulfilled.  When our Lord said the Scriptures would endure to the ends of the earth and that He did not come to abolish them – He meant it.  Saying much has been fulfilled is to say that much has not been finished as well.  In fact, a lot of detail concerning the prophetic future we read about in the book of Revelation of YaHshua the Messiah is found to fit, like a revealing puzzle with words written by the Prophets of old, words written down and recorded long before the Gospel Message was recorded for us in what we call the New Covenant.

I say all of this so the readers of these email exchanges and answers will know where I am coming from – agree or not, this is what I see and understand at this time.   Believe me, I have lived long enough to see my solid opinion about some things and some doctrines change – if what we believe today cannot be shaken and is the absolute truth then we allow no room for growth -- true, truth will stay firm but we should not decide that even truth should not be challenged, this is what is known as rightly dividing the truth (2 Tim 2:15).  A child that says I know it all already, is a child and remains a child never maturing to and adult, it is our responsibility to continue in our growth, even if it means challenging accepted doctrines over and over.  Still, it is the right of every believer to see things differently all dependent upon where they are in their Spiritual growth, this makes for some interesting discussions but also some great growth and development.  

Our Lord and our Heavenly Father as well, will guide us as we need and when we are ready to see more clearly, as we all work at removing the Fog of Religion.  This is a never ending journey and not until we see our Lord and join Him will all of the Fog be removed and then what needs to be restore will be restored.  Until then we are all stumbling around in the fog to one degree or another.  Speculation is speculation and opinion is opinion and can make for interesting observations but like theories in science should not be accepted as truth until we are shown otherwise -- one way or another.  

With that said I hope the following exchanges and emails will encourage you to study the word and see what it says to you without all of the screaming and shouting.  No hate mail allowed, period!
