As it written (repeatedly so), speaking evil of Brothers, cursing out brethren, seeking to destroy Ahchyam, is worldly behavior we must stop as we grow in the New Covenant.
- Luke 9:54 | And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? 55But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
If a Brother needs to be addressed, do so respectfully and lovingly, such that he may later, in his own time, consider your words and return to his right mind.
- Galatians 5:15 | But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
- Galatians 5:26 | Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
- 1 Corinthians 3:3 | For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
Debating is the carnal way of a man’s wisdom, it is not helpful, neither is airing out by opening gossiping of brother’s personal business or dealings, no matter how they may have angered you or someone else, lest you become worse than the accused through spiritual cannibalism.
- 2 Corinthians 12:20 | For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:
- 1 Corinthians 8:12 | But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against YAHAWASHI.
The greater ranked spirit you are in the order of the Kingdom of Heaven, the greater the burden you must bear.
- Matthew 23:11 | But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
- Mat 5:19 | Whosoever 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.
- Mat 11:11 | Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
Cursing of others shall not proceed out of the mouth of the Ministers of the New Covenant, neither provoking, nor irritating, whether on Israelites in the New Covenant or those of the two-thirds, neither curse Edomites nor any other heathen.
curse (n.): late Old English curs “a prayer that evil or harm befall one; consignment of a person to an evil fate,” [. . .] Meaning “the evil which has been invoked upon one, that which causes severe trouble” is from early 14c. Curses as a histrionic exclamation (“curses upon him/her/it”) is by 1680s. The curse in 19c. was the sentence imposed upon Adam and Eve in Genesis iii.16-19. The slang sense “menstruation” is from 1930. Curse of Scotland, the 9 of diamonds in cards, is attested from 1791, but the signification is obscure. From Etymonlnie
- James 3:8 | But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9Therewith bless we YAHAWAH, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of YAHAWAH. 10Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. 13Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
- Matthew 5:44 | But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45That ye may be the SONS of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?Luke 6:29 | And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.
“Take the L” (loss) if the situation calls for such, better to have your ego take a hit than to provoke another.
- 1 Peter 4:14 | If ye be reproached for the name of YAHAWAH, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of YAHAWAH resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
- Mark 8:35 | For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.
- 1 Corinthians 9:20 | And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; 21To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to YAHAWAH, but under the law to YAHAWASHI,) that I might gain them that are without law. 22To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.
- Luke 6:22 | Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
Behave such that the Ministry of the New Covenant be not reproached.
- Philippians 2:14 | Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of YAHAWAH, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
reproach (n.): mid-14c., reproche, “a rebuke, blame, censure” directed against a person; also “object of scorn or contempt;” c. 1400, as “disgrace, state of disgrace,” from Anglo-French repruce, Old French reproche “blame, shame, disgrace” (12c.), from reprochier “to blame, bring up against.” From Etymonline
- Hebrews 10:24 | And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
