Luke 15

From PreparingYou

The Father's house was first our Father in heaven. People left their Father's house and elected the fathers of the world. The people gave their conscripted fathers power to rule over them and to even borrow in their name. They failed to include or adhere to the 5 prohibitions in Deuteronomy 17 to say nothing of the Ten Commandments making covenants and coveting. It was His inheritance of liberty that was squandered by the Prodigal son.
I commend those who try not to take any benefits from those Benefactors who exercise authority. I commend those who have not sought the wages of unrighteousness. But that is not enough.
If we want to get back to our Father's house in the kingdom of God we need to think differently and go another way, because our fathers and grandfathers did choose to have "one purse". They have been "snared and trapped" as prophesied. Because of debt, the people cannot just free themselves and they have no place to stand to claim freedom.
We need to remember that:
Rights are inherited and so can obligations be passed to the next generation. Our fathers have eaten "unripe grapes turning our teeth on edge". They have through covetous practices made themselves and us merchandise. They have cursed children which is us, and made us surety for debt.
Proverbs tells us to remember the ant who work together. Jesus commanded us to sit in the tens....
The prodigal son did not come back to get his inheritance but to be a "servant in his first father's house".
That is what all the apostles and the ministers of the early Church did. They served the people in the free congregations of tens through pure religion creating a network of those who might survive the decline and fall of the Roman empire.
Christ had a plan. That is still the plan. Those who are called out to be ministers of His Church can come out but they have no personal estate and must come into one accord to serve those who will sit down in the tens. If they, the people, do not sit down in the tens I assume there will be no loaves and fishes.
The system is so complete and pervasive those who were entangled are snared and cursed. I see no personal exit for most people that could be counted as righteous. They are under the yoke of the unrighteous mammon. Yet, there is hope.
If the world said that if you get the Baptism of Christ then you are kicked out of their system like the Pharisees did then congregants could get out now. That may come someday but right now the people are not really ready to come out. There will probably need to be some plagues and tribulations first to bring people up to speed.
In the meantime... The world has said ministers who conform to the directives of Christ, who are part of congregations of ministers, who have waived their rights to eat at the table of their system, can be separate. But to claim that those ministers would have to come back to their Father's house to be His servants, to serve others not themselves and certainly not to be free, or sovereign etc.
To serve Christ means to serve others in His name in the righteous mammon. They cannot do that until the people sit down in companies of ten as Jesus commanded. That was the plan then and now. That is The Way.

[1] Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him. [2] And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them. [3] And he spake this parable unto them, saying, [4] What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? [5] And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. [6] And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. [7] I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. [8] Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? [9] And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost. [10] Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

[11] And he said, A certain man had two sons: [12] And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. [13] And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. [14] And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. [15] And he went and joined himself[1] to a citizen[2] of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. [16] And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. [17] And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! [18] I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, [19] And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. [20] And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. [21] And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. [22] But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: [23] And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: [24] For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. [25] Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing. [26] And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant. [27] And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound. [28] And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him. [29] And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: [30] But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. [31] And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. [32] It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
