Seek Ye First The Kingdom of YHWH

But know this, that in the last days hard times shall come.
(2Ti 3:1 The Scriptures 1998+)

For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, thankless, wrong-doers,
(2Ti 3:2 The Scriptures 1998+)

unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, haters of good,
(2Ti 3:3 The Scriptures 1998+)

betrayers, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim,
(2Ti 3:4 The Scriptures 1998+)

having a form of reverence1 but denying its power. And turn away from these!
Footnote: 1:See 2Ti3:13, Isa. 24:5-6, Mt. 24:12, Rom. 1:30-31, 2 Thess. 2:3-11.
(2Ti 3:5 The Scriptures 1998+)

"Lovers of money" also means -- oppression of another for one's own gain.

Please allow me to point out one angle of view regarding this.

This is the reason why Yahushua overturns the tables of businesses in the temple, Thrice, yes, Three Times, although we can readily see Twice. In the beginning of His ministry, (John 2:13-16), and also near His crucifixion, (Matthew 21:12–13; Mark 11:15–17; Luke 19:45–46). But in Mark, He waited one day before going to Jerusalem and cleansed the Temple.When Did Jesus[Yahushua] Cleanse The Temple? by Tim Chaffey in Answers In Genesis

Might His Act be Prophetic? I am inclined to believe it is.

Because their prices were too high oppressing the peoples who would buy their offerings for their sins. What if I am one of those individual out there who can not afford their high prices? Then I cannot make peace with Elohim.

But Yahushua came, to take all these animal sacrifices and food offerings away, so that our burden was supposed to be lightened, Mat 11:29, Jer 6:16.

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble in heart, and you shall find rest for your beings.1
Footnote: 1: Jer. 6:16.
(Mat 11:29 The Scriptures 1998+)

Except that the oppression did not stop there. The inflation still continues to the present day. Every time money is printed inflation rises. And Not too long ago, money did not need to be printed any more to create it. The Bankers just have to press a button -- the "Enter key" -- to create money out of thin air.Money As Debt - Full Length Documentary - YouTube

As money is created out of thin air by the Bankers, debt is created, inflation rises, the value of goods drop as prices soar, the buying power of the masses drop as well, and the peoples are taxed to pay the debts created out of thin air. The peoples are oppressed. If there is what is called a perfect scam, this is it.

  • Any Country in the World today that have a Central Bank and Tax Collection Agency is part of the Bigger Scheme. The Biggest Central Bank in the World is the Bank of International Settlements in Switzerland. It controls All the Central Banks of the World.

  • We were living in a One World Order ever since after World War II, but only out of sleight of hand of the Powers-That-Be.

  • This time around, they are coming out of the closet and slowly revealing themselves, by advertising it as the New World Order.

  • America is the Last Bastion of Freedom. America has already been conquered by these Powers-That-Be. America has reached the point of no return, it cannot be helped. It will fall, like the rest of the world into a third-world status.

  • The sole purpose of this, is to oppressed the Peoples of the World so that they cannot make peace with Elohim, their Creator. But many in their powers vested in them, are oblivious of this, because they have been blinded by greed.

The Kingdom of Elohim is His family He is building on earth. A family unit is the smallest unit in His Kingdom. Israel is that Kingdom YHWH is building here on earth. But Israel was first divided, and then it was Lost Among the Nations because of their unrighteousness. If we seek His Kingdom, there it is. The smallest unit in His Kingdom is one's own family.1Ki 3:11-13, 2Ch 1:7-12, 1Ki 17:13Who Are The GentilesThe Fullness of the Gentiles -- "The Lost Tribes of Israel"

But seek first the kingdom of YAHWEH and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
(Mat 6:33 HRB)

Next, after we find YHWH's Kingdom, we should seek His righteousness. If each one strive to provide for one's own family out of love, one then learns how to love others, and help others to stand on their own and they too, can do the same for another. 1Ki 17:13, 2Ch 31:20, 2Ch 31:21, Pro 2:1-9, Pro 3:9, Pro 3:10, Hag 1:2-11, Hag 2:16-19, Luk 12:31, Joh 6:27

My son, if you will receive my words, and shall protect my commandments with you,
(Pro 2:1 HRB)

so that you attend to wisdom, you shall extend your heart to understanding.
(Pro 2:2 HRB)

For if you cry for discernment, lifting up your voice for understanding;
(Pro 2:3 HRB)

if you seek her as silver, and search for her as hidden treasures,
(Pro 2:4 HRB)

then you shall understand the fear of YAHWEH and find knowledge of Elohim.
(Pro 2:5 HRB)

For YAHWEH gives wisdom; out of His mouth are knowledge and understanding.
(Pro 2:6 HRB)

He lays up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to the ones who walk in integrity,
(Pro 2:7 HRB)

to guard the paths of judgment, and He protects the way of His saints.
(Pro 2:8 HRB)

Then you shall understand righteousness and judgment and honesty, and every good path.
(Pro 2:9 HRB)

By helping them out (our brothers and sisters who are in need) not only what they needed to survive, but also what they needed to enable them to stand on their own to live by their means, so that they too may do the righteous act to help others in return, by the same way.Deut 15:7-11The Philanthropic PauperCharity In A Failing Economy

“When there is a poor man with you, one of your brothers, within any of the gates in your land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, do not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother,
(Deu 15:7 The Scriptures 1998+)

Notice the difference in meaning between "Charity" and "Tzedakah".

"Tzedakah" as was translated into English as "charity", it loses its meaning.

Tzedakah - Deut 15:7-11

for you shall certainly open your hand to him and certainly lend him enough for his need, whatever he needs.
(Deu 15:8 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Be on guard lest there be a thought of Beliyaʽal in your heart, saying, ‘The seventh year, the year of release, is near,’ and your eye is evil against your poor brother and you give him naught. And he shall cry out to יהוה against you, and it shall be a sin in you.
(Deu 15:9 The Scriptures 1998+)

“You shall certainly give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this reason יהוה your Elohim does bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand.
(Deu 15:10 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Because the poor one does not cease from the land. Therefore I am commanding you, saying, ‘You shall certainly open your hand to your brother, to your poor and to your needy one, in your land.’
(Deu 15:11 The Scriptures 1998+)

Provide for your family until it is able to stand on its own, while also "seeking His righteousness" by trying to help another family to stand on their own, that they too will be able to help another the same.

This is the Golden Rule of the Torah found in Lev 19, repeated in Mat 5, and in James 2. USA, and the First-World Nations who Practiced these principles have been so blessed according to the Word/Torah, Deut 15:10, Lev 19:13. Even though they have forgotten where these principles originated. By creating jobs and opportunities that pay generous wages and paying them on time.

In contrast, the third world countries, who Not only give meager wages, Also, Do Not give them on time.

‘Do not oppress your neighbour or rob him. The wages of him who is hired is not to remain with you all night until morning.
(Lev 19:13 The Scriptures 1998+)

But the devil must steal our power to provide enough for ourselves so that we will feel the crunch, and thus ultimately changed our attitudes about helping others, thus slowly going away from the Golden Rule of the Torah that brings the blessings and opportunities to bless others in return.The Myth Of Charity

Eventually, a hunger of the Word (of the Torah) will come for lack of support, because the crunch shall be so severe that the teachers of the Word will be forced to hide.

The middle class is drowning, but oblivious of what is happening. And The "Churches", while it is supposedly their duty to help out the middle class they are actually helping out to oppress them. Just observed how they plead their cause to ask for our tithes and offerings and donations.

The congregation or assembly of Yahushua is the Temple of YHWH, Elohim. These "Churches" are supposedly this Assembly of Yahushua HaMashiach. But over 45,000 churches and denominations "divided" competing to get to our pockets is hardly that assembly.

This Temple must first be cleansed of the Money Issue -- "A House of Merchandise", (John 2:16), "A Robber's Den", (Matthew 21:12–13; Mark 11:15–17; Luke 19:45–46).

But How?

John gave us the message:

And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.1
Footnote: 1: Jer. 51:6 & 45.
(Rev 18:4 The Scriptures 1998+)

As we "come out of her", the assembly of Yahushua HaMashiach, will eventually form and be united in the Word -- the Directions of YHWH -- The Torah. This is the True Remnant of Israel -- the Two Houses of Israel -- the dispersed house of Yahudah, and the Lost Tribes of Israel, shall become as One Together in the Torah.

We can read an account in Acts 5:1-11 how the pioneer Assembly of Yahushua HaMashiach, was cleansed of this Money Issue, and moved forward together as one, pooling their resources together.

I believe, this Temple, the Assembly of Yahushua HaMashiach, will have to be cleansed of this Money Issue before the Messiah comes again.

When should that be? I believe the record of Yahushua cleansing the Temple of the den of robbers and the house of merchandise is prophetic of two assemblies. The 144,000 Thousand and the Large Multitudes.Rev 7:1-14

This is a glimpse I see:

Those who "come out of her" and grouped together in three to eight families, pooling their resources together and build a self-sustaining business for themselves, and for their brethren they will eventually meet, might be grafted into the first assembly, provided they seek YHWH's righteousness in running this business.

Shalom! Shalom!
