(May 3, 2021. Last Day of Unleavened Bread.)
These are only brief notes. Please listen to the actual sermon for full edification.
The Last day of Unleavened Bread represents completeness, perfection, paradise, holiness. It is like the last day of the Fiesta of Tabernacles, which is the only other fiesta that lasts 8 days except for Hanukkah.
Heb 4:15 to Heb. 6:3 Moving past elementary/basic things (the milk) and getting deep into the word of God (the meat) and learning and growing in truth.
Most of the churches of BABYlon are focused only upon teaching that there is a Messiah who can forgive our sins. Other churches are focused only upon law and dead works such as circumcision, etc.
We are required to grow in the truth. This requires going beyond the basics. We must get deep into the word of God. The deeper things, the hidden things.
To get to the deeper things, we must be mature about things.
We must be mature enough to hear hardcore preaching, manly/bold speech including not being so easily offended by words. Being offended by words is childish.
In the recent new article "Be Ye Holy/Perfect/Complete", I said
"Jesus brought apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors & deacons for the purpose of helping us to attain that level of perfection/maturity via correction, provoking, encouraging, teaching, directing/instruction, etc. It is the job of the church administration, the preachers, to help you become sinless and perfect and mature. But you must find a church that teaches holiness, not a liberal church that refuses to preach repentance. Not a liberal church where the preacher sugar coats (waters down) the gospel. Not a church run by pansy women, nor butch/masculine women. But rather, a church run by Alpha males who are bold with the word of God."
Sheila was very offended by that. However, there's not anything incorrect or wrong about what I said at all. Period. We don't need pansy women who wear cosmetics and who are too soft and too liberal running any church. And we don't need butch lesbian hardcore women running any church either! It is the Alpha men who should run churches.
I absolutely did not call all women "pansy", although definitely by comparison to alpha males, all women who maintain their gender roles would be pansy by comparison. But what was in my mind when I wrote it; and the context was, that we don't need weak women, nor strong women leading the churches. I gave the examples or wording of the extreme of both ends/sides. The very much woman and the very overly effeminate woman. That's how it was used.
Any woman the age of Sheila, and who claims to be saved, should have understood that. But as the bible says, some people are still on the weak baby milk and refuse to receive harder meat and stronger, more mature words.
A lot of people just want to be babied. I refuse to baby anyone.
2 Cor.7:1-2 perfecting holiness.
