Call no man Father

Written by Rev Anthony Smith

“But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father uponrepparttar earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.” Commandments from Jesus. Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrinesrepparttar 135076 commandments of men. Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrinesrepparttar 135077 commandments of men. John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keeprepparttar 135078 commandments. If this were not important torepparttar 135079 association of man to God, Jesus would not have stated these commandments. Our relationship with The Father is based upon our acceptance of Him as, Father, Counselor, Teacher, King, Master, and Almighty God. But when we put man atrepparttar 135080 same level as God then there is a breakdown in our relationship with God. “Howbeit in vain” ” But in vain’ they do worship me! Is your worship of God in vain, does he hear your prayers and petitions or does He turn His back to a adulterous and gainsaying person? Are you calling a man Holy Father, who can neither answer prayers nor forgive sin? {But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut uprepparttar 135081 kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.} these men were destined for Hell, are you? Its time to think and searchrepparttar 135082 scriptures, its time to hearrepparttar 135083 truth before its too late.


~ Rejoice and Be Thou Ravished ~

According to this verse, a husband is to let his wife be affectionate, loving, wild, and playful towards him. The end of verse 19 says, “Let her breasts” inrepparttar Hebrew, dad, which isrepparttar 135075 seat of love, “satisfy thee at all times.” Satisfy, raw-vaw’ means to slakerepparttar 135076 thirst; this is talking about appetites, make drunk, to takerepparttar 135077 fill of; to satiate; (abundantly) to satisfy fully. The last part ofrepparttar 135078 verse says, “and be thou ravished” (shaw-gaw’- enraptured; intoxicated), in drunkenness, “always” (taw-meed’- constantly, daily, continually) “with her love”. Husbands are to find complete, continual, satisfaction in their wives alone. It is to be with her love that they are to intoxicate themselves. Many have been raised to believe thatrepparttar 135079 sexual act is something that is to be “endured” and should only be engaged in with thoughts of propagatingrepparttar 135080 human race. God, however (in light of these verses), appears to have thought differently on this subject. While sexual intercourse is, indeed,repparttar 135081 means He has given us for bringing forth life, life is notrepparttar 135082 only reason for which it was given. According torepparttar 135083 verses we’ve just studied, we see thatrepparttar 135084 sexual act is meant to be a joyous, thrilling, satisfying, experience within a marriage. It is also meant to be enjoyed by both husbands and wives, with or without propagation in mind.

"Rejoice withrepparttar 135085 wife of thy youth ... and be thou ravished always with her love."
