Is There Some Kind of Government Structure in The Community of YAHWEH
For The Disciples of YAHSHUA?
There are some groups, even among people who use The True Names of
The Father, and of The Son, and claim to keep The Law (Torah), that
are teaching that The TRUE Community (Congregation, Assembly, House)
of YAHWEH should have a Government hierarchic structure, just as the
coming Reign of YAHWEH will have.
Is that Scripturally True? What do The Scriptures Really teach?
Did YAHSHUA MESSIYAH give some kind of Government hierarchic
structure among His Apostles (Disciples)?
Mattithyah (Matthew) 23:8-12:
"8 But be not you called Rabbi: for One is your Rabbi, MESSIYAH
(YAHSHUA); and all you are brethren.
9 And call no man your father upon the Earth: for One is your Father,
Which is in Heaven.
10 Neither be you called Masters: for One is your Master, MESSIYAH
11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that
shall humble himself shall be exalted".
Here we clearly see, by the Own Words of YAHSHUA MESSIYAH, that He
did NOT give a Governament hierarchic structure to His Apostles
(Disciples), but, on the contrary, He gave them a Congregational way
among them ("all you are brethren"), with only One Head ("One is your
Rabbi / Master, MESSIYAH / YAHSHUA"), and the greatest among them
have to be their servant.
Actually YAHSHUA MESSIYAH is reversing a Government hierarchic
structure among His Apostles (Disciples).
WHY? Because His Apostles (Disciples) first have to learn to serve
everyone, to be able later to rightly govern in The Reign of YAHWEH!
Is there, in The Scriptures, some practical application of such
Congregational way that YAHSHUA gave to His Apostles (Disciples)?
In Acts Chapter 6, and Chapter 15, we read that decisions had to be
How were such decisions made? In a hierarchic way, or in a
Read careful the Chapter 6, and the Chapter 15 of Acts, and you will
see that the decisions were discussed among Every Member of The Body
of YAHSHUA MESSIYAH, and made from the Apostles, and the Elders, and
All the Brethren gathered together!
Is 1 Corinthians 12:27-31, and Ephesians 4:4-16 indication of a
Government hierarchic structure, or are they Spiritual Gifts and
Functions among All Members of The Body of YAHSHUA MESSIYAH, in a
Read careful the two Scriptures quoted above, and you will see that
they are Spiritual Gifts and Functions among All Members of The Body
of YAHSHUA MESSIYAH, in a Congregational way!

Important Subject are Most Welcomed!
May our Creator and Father YAHWEH Bless your and our Insight of HIS
Will and Word, The Truth!
True Love in HIS Beloved Son, and our Savior YAHSHUA MESSIYAH,
