David and the Messiah until now, the power to discharge
For the king to appoint administers over the the election by the people would be an usurpation of God working through the hearts and minds of the people in His kingdom. In the days of David, the king held the office of protector and could fire the porters or gatekeepers of God’s freewill sacrifice administered through the Church in the wilderness in service to the tents of the congregations. This sacrifice was Corban.
Jesus upon entering Jerusalem, hailed as the highest son David, also had the authority to fire the porters of that temple. With His string whip He removed them. He did not appoint new porters without the election of the people. By law, only God working in the hearts and minds of the people could choose new ministers of the charitable altars of God through the choice of free congregations. This would be done at the gathering of Pentecost through the kingdom in their hearts.
Jesus appointed His apostles by the authority given Him by the Father. They were not to be like the princes of other nations who exercised authority. They could only appoint ministers elected by the people. After Pentecost, they worked daily in the temple, overseeing the freewill Corban of God in service to the people baptized under Christ and cast out of the Pharisee’s system of Corban.
The people had a choice to give their offering upon the lively stone altars of Christ or into the treasury of the Pharisees. The Corban of the Pharisees made the “word of God to none effect” according to Christ. John called them synagogue of Satan. Those who followed the ways of the Anointed King, the Messiah, the Christ, became known as Christians. These two different systems were in conflict in Judea.
It seems undeniable that the apostles and men like Barnabas were clearly ministers of the temple as they worked there daily. [Acts 2:46 and 5:42]. We know that large sums of money and goods were handled there and distributed in times of need [Acts 11:30]. We also know that there were ministers there who did not accept Christ chosen by the people, but did a similar job with evidently different methods of collection and distribution which could be described as Nicolaitans or the error of Balaam [see Appendix 2].
Some of the money-changers or porters of the temple fired by Christ were evidently reelected by the villages or courts1 according to their genealogies in congregations. This is the way Israel worked as an effective and free society for centuries, ruled by God through the hearts and minds of the people.
Some people, like the parents of the blind man in John 9, wanted to maintain the system of entitlements. They did not want to be cast out of the Corban of the Pharisees despite the fact it made the word of God to none effect [Mark 7]. The people who coveted those benefits provided by the forced contribution of their neighbors violated the commandments. They did not love Christ, Moses, or God.2
The people who contributed to the apostles as the ministers of the government appointed by Christ3 and recognized by Rome4 and many of the citizens of Judea5 were excluded from the benefits of Corban [John 9:35]. When they gave to their chosen ministers under the overseership of the ministers of Christ they were always counted as paid in full [Luke 16]. They could not be prosecuted for failure to contribute under this ancient institution created by God for the general welfare of the people.
The services offered by the apostles, who were the Church established by Christ, were not a snare or a recompense like that of the Pharisees and the other nations. It did not make the word of God to none effect. It was an alternative, the way, the door of Christ that lead to freedom under God. They operated under the perfect law of liberty, by faith, hope, and charity setting the people free, which is the mission of the Church. Those who did not go that sacred way fell prey to the congregations of the adversary.

The Free Church Report
The Free Church Report presents a unique path for the modern Church according the nature of the first century Church by explaining the duty and purposes of that institution appointed by Christ. While Rome declined under runaway inflation, corrupt government, martial law, and endless threats of war, the Christians found an alternative to the men who “called themselves benefactors but exercised authority one over the other.”
The early Christian knew rights and responsibilities were indivisible. They sought the right to be ruled by God by taking back their responsibility, through the service of “called out” ministers who lived in the world, but were not of it. Their government benefits came through a divine network instituted in their hearts and minds by faith, hope, and charity under the perfect law of liberty as their Qorban of the unrighteous mammon failed the Roman society.
