Once there was a Church or Assembly that instead of sitting in
rows sat at a horse-shoe table, now this assembly was waiting for a certain
preacher to come and teach them. When he arrived he did not look or act in
the manner that they thought he should. Some realized just who he was but
others clearly did not.
They all should have known him as he sent his description in a
book all about him and the way of the people of the table, but it had been too
long in waiting and they formed their own ideas of what he should be like and
So because of disbelief they were asked to get up from the table,
that left some blank seats at the table so under the preachers instructions the
people at the table that were believers went out and told others about their
new preacher, so any that would believe were invited to the great table and
joined the group.
If some had not left the table there would have been no empty
The new group at the table learned the way of the table from the
book the preacher had sent and testimony of what the preacher had said while he
was among them. The preacher warned the newcomers not to speak against or
about those that had left, he said just before he would return they would
believe and be grafted back in among them.
Once at the table they were taught the way of the preacher and the
way of those already at the table. Those that came were grafted in among the
The Preacher had to go on to prepare even a greater table for
those at the table were to tell others about him and graft them in also.
Some of the new comers tried to form their own way after the
preacher left trying to create their own church or assembly, in fact they even
spoke badly of the original assembly and created their own way even changing
the meaning of the very words the preacher taught while he was among them, in
fact they changed the book he sent or in some cases threw it away.
It was the time just before the return of the preacher, the ones
that had been cast out because of non-belief, looked back at the table how it
had grown, they realized that truly the preacher that they had been waiting had
indeed came and was about to come again, so they repented and were invited back
to the table or rather grafted back in.
Now along the same time many of those who had followed the new
assembly realized that what they had been taught for generations was indeed an
untruth, so they repented and were called back to the table or rather grafted
back in, you see they had not realized that their forefathers had been broken
The preacher returned to take everyone that had accepted his way
back to the great table he had prepared for them. Some that had formed there
own way came running back to him saying, we have been waiting and doing all
these things in your name, but he said get away from me as you do not know the
way of the table, the way of the book I sent and my teachings. So they were
Now all those that were now seated at the original table were
invited to come sit at the Great Table he had prepared for them.
7What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for;
but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded 8(According as it
is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should
not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. 9And David saith,
Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a
recompence unto them: 10Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and
bow down their back alway. 11I say then, Have they stumbled that they should
fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the
Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. 12Now if the fall of them be the
riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles;
how much more their fulness? 13For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am
the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: 14If by any means I may
provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
15For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall
the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? 16For if the firstfruit be
holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
17And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree,
wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of
the olive tree; 18Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou
bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19Thou wilt say then, The branches
were broken off, that I might be graffed in. 20Well; because of unbelief they
were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21For
if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
22Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell,
severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness:
otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23And they also, if they abide not still
in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. 24For
if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert
graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these,
which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree? 25For I
would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should
be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel,
until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26And so all Israel shall be
saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall
turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27For this is my covenant unto them, when I
shall take away their sins. 28As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for
your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers'
sakes. 29For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 30For as ye
in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their
unbelief: 31Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy
they also may obtain mercy. 32For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that
he might have mercy upon all. 33O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom
and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past
finding out! 34For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his
counsellor? 35Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto
him again? 36For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom
be glory for ever. Amen.
17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I
am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven
and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till
all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least
commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the
kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be
called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say unto you, That except your
righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye
shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt
not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22But I
say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be
in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall
be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger
of hell fire. 23Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there
rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24Leave there thy gift
before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then
come and offer thy gift. 25Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art
in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge,
and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
26Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou
hast paid the uttermost farthing. 27Ye have heard that it was said by them of
old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28But I say unto you, That whosoever
looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already
in his heart. 29And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it
from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should
perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 30And if thy
right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable
for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body
should be cast into hell.
25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to
the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying,
Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not
whence ye are: 26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy
presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27But he shall say, I tell you,
I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
28There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and
Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you
yourselves thrust out. 29And they shall come from the east, and from the west,
and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30And, behold, there are last which
shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
Greetings, Some of you have read stories like this one about the "pastor" for those that have not here is the why I write in this manner...The pastor is based on events that happen to me in real life, mostly at the Wichita Mission Church, writing in this manner help's protect identities and I find it easier to express my self....'
In His Perfect Peace, Pastor Dan
Matthew 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Tuesday the pastor arrived at the MissionChurch
late as he had errands to run but his wife was already there opened with the help
The place seem full of chatter coming from the area where the
clothing closet and phone is. The First thing noticed was the baby on the bench
church seat in the hall.
Then he saw the mother a girl now young lady around 24 whom
he has known since she was 16…she was so glad to see him as with many she called
him dad in fact she stated he had been her dad since 16 in conversation with the
other young ladies that seemed to be crowding the Mission Church this day!
Wow where does time go he as he sat on the bench looking at
the very cute baby, but are they not all cute?
He asked is she a good baby? The Young lady promptly with a
serious look on her face said “ Yes” sort of hesitant “ but if you disturb her
when she is sleeping, SHE is not havin it” saying with a hand movement like she
was cutting air, “ If you take her pacifier, SHE’S not havin it” Well this list went on with the pastor
laughing inside for a minute.
The Young lady is doing well, 4 year’s sober after so much
had happened to her because of being thrown to the street by parents when she
was 16. Drugs, prostitution, babies, failed marriage (in which she at one point
had to defend her self with a knife) and so much more… but yes she finally met
Yeshua and he helped her straiten things out, with this child was with the ex
that is done and over with, in fact….she has just gotten custody of her 4 year
She is helping another young lady get straight after a long
addition, which of course had to tell the Pastor all about it “Pastor I am
sober and have real hope!” Great he said as they hugged, everyone seems to want
a hug thought the pastor….
In fact in the kitchen was two more young ladies helping his
wife and yes one is PG about to have her baby real soon like the next week…which
reminded the pastor that he had to print out a durable power of attorney for
her so if something goes wrong the pastor can make sure her wishes are met as
far as medical and for her previous children…
That can be a very hard thing as the pastor flashes back to
having to tell doctors to stop all life saving treatment or bury a brother
whose family has disowned him, so very hard but someone has to be there don’t
they he thinks as he mourns…
Then yet another girl or young lady come up and wants to
donate $2 it has to be the last money she has but she is thankful for the help
she received that day, food and clothing…She was told by another homeless
person to come seek out the pastor as she was fighting a drug battle..
Taking her into the office for a talk much was reveled and
there was a place of hope for her to go to, which in this case was a miracle
because seldom are there openings for women…out of the office after an elder of
the Mission Church and the anointing oil..
After prayer he take’s her to a safe place…what a day seems
like nothing but girls, real girl power the pastor chuckles to himself….
After a great meal made by the pastor’s wife it was time for
clean-up…and like clock-work in comes a man who is not homeless but very poor
who just told the pastor how he comes for fellowship and does not need food,
but he is so thankful he comes to help clean-up…
What a day, praise the Father for His son Yeshua and be
allowed to serve…the pastor thinks wow so many people just do not understand that
helping the poor is so well wonderful, he could have went other ways with the ministry
but this is the path the Father chose for him…and his family of course, wow how
lucky to be allowed to serve the Father by serving others, being among the poor
and sinners as Yeshua walked…
