Big Sandy, COR and FEMA #103

A number of situations have come up on the network during Sandy.

We had people on the network groups who did suffer some. Most were well prepared and we had numerous people ready to help those who suffered loss.

Almost all the reports that came in were good or timely but not all.


One fellow who I have known for some time, Bob of Long Island, evidently "had four feet of water in his house and both cars were covered which means total loss." evidently he did have a need for "Kerosene Heater".

We did not receive that report for 5 days and now when we heard of it we have been calling but we do not get an answer.
We do not know where Bob is or if he still has needs, nor do we know what resources Bob has.

Some thought of mailing a Kerosene heater to him but you cannot mail the kerosene he will need. Others thought of going there and delivering what he needs or rescuing him and his wife and giving him a place to be safe but without contact we have no way of proceeding.

This is why we form Congregations of Record [COR].

Bob had joined a COR but it is not viable at this time. The minister had to move 3000 miles away to support his family and the members of the COR His Church at Cape Cod is virtually not functioning for a variety of reasons.

It is the JOB of every member of a COR to make it function and most of the people of the world have little or no idea of how to do that.

It is a learn by doing skill. It is a walk of faith and sacrifice that you must choose to make.

Reserve funds of the Kingdom

There were people who asked if there should be a reserve fund to help in these matters.

Those of you who have read Money vs. Mammon know that is what the golden calf was, a central reserve fund that bound the people together in a common purse and central treasury.

  • Matthew 6:19 "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:"

That is not the way the body of Christ functions. that is not Kingdom."

 

Your body has a pool of blood in it in the form of millions of little capillaries. Those capillaries have single file blood cells carrying food and oxygen to supply the needs of your body all the time, cell to cell. When there is a stress on the body your nervous systems tells the whole body and capillaries contract sending extra blood to the needed area of the body. Every part of the body contributes and no part of the body is over taxed.

 

This is God's design.

  • Matthew 6:20  "But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
  •  

    You cannot do that in a voluntary nation unless every part of the body is connected through a living network of communication, your nervous system.

    That is what these email groups are meant to form but you have to do it.

    These email groups are external to the living network.

    You have to form local congregations that support each other but are connected in a broader network of congregations of ministers. Those ministers need to be WELL Connected, through a system of local ministers who also gather and maintain connections to the whole body.

     

    That requires dedicated men and women who care and are supported for their efforts.

    We have that with some of the network but we are all learning our own kingdom skills.

    It is a daily walk and not just talk.

       I try to read all the emails that come  through the whole network and answer every call that comes in or return them. That is a full time job in itself.

    This is why we have a network of unpaid men and women who are trying to take that load off of me and each other to serve people they have often  never met.

    Someone saying they have a relationship with Christ but not doing what the father said is evidence that someone does not have a relationship with Christ.

    Which brings to mind Matthew 7:21 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."

    And Matthew 7:21 comes to mind  "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."

    Or Matthew 12:50  "For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother."

     

    The purpose of these groups is to form a living network of ministers of record {MOR] established by people who volunteer to do the work and those who volunteer to support them. We have people all over the country that truly want to serve Christ because Christ lives in them.

     

    We have no central treasury.

    We have not task masters.

    We impose no rules but righteousness upon ourselves.

    We do not come to your house to whip or rule over you or force you to do the right thing.

     

    If we show up at your doors it is to serve but we cannot do that without your participation in the whole body.

    We have some ministers that diligently seek to maintain and entrance to the kingdom of God by serving others in a kingdom network.

    • 2 Peter 1:11  "For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."

     

    They are connected in a living network of Ministers of Record [MOR].

    They got to that position by being active Personal Contact Ministers  [PCM], then being elected by the people to be MORs but proving themselves to be a viable network by working daily with their congregations and other MORs in a living network.

    They work on a MOR at HisHolyChurch group with other trustees in the network and are ready to aid people in Christ's living Faith Emergency Management Auxiliary HIS-FEMA.

    We have men forming the Order necessary to keep this living network, this Body of Christ, His Church, in the world but not of it.

     

    We can only do this if we are His body, connected by bones, sinew and flesh. [see Ezekiel 37:]

     

    If people do not want to do that they do not have to do so.

    That is what liberty is all about and why we call it volunteering.

    But

    Do not waste your time telling us you love Jesus or have a relationship with Him because we know it is not what you say but what you do that bears witness.

    Show us.

    If you love one another then you will do what Christ said and what the early Church did.

    Do not expect us to show up in your time of need if you will not do what is required to be a body of believers now who come together to serve one another.

    It is easy to find churches that want to make you feel good, make you feel righteous, make you feel love.

    But

    We are only interested in the righteousness of God.

    We are bound only by faith, hope and charity but that begins in you.

    That is why the kingdom is within you. That is where it starts.

     

    Show us

    Forming viable COR groups is the best way of telling us that you are serious seeker of the kingdom and have a relationship with Christ.

    Making that COR a viable part of a living network is your job and the job of the minister of your congregation.

    You must pick ministers that are willing to work with other ministers, generously, righteously, with honor through service and sacrifice for one another.

    Not platitudes and sermons that make you feel good.

    We are not ear ticklers but messengers of the gospel of the kingdom.

    How many times did Jesus say it is not those who talk and say but those who do the will of the father.

    Hebrews 10:36  For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

    Since it is doers that have a relationship with Christ as we see in MT 12:50.

    It is the best way to study, learn to provide answers for yourself and others.

    So why don't people do that. Why don't they do more than pick a PCM, or even do that?

    They will have to answer that question for themselves but forming that network of honor and trust, service and sacrifice is the testimony of faith, hope and charity which is love is kingdom and might be evidence of a viable relationship with Christ.

     

    Revelation 3:19  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

     

    Follow up Report:

    One of our diligent ministers has gotten a hold of Bob and his wife and reports  that "They are staying with a friend about 3 miles north of their house. The house and cars and contents have been damaged by water, but they are insured."

    The other ministers in the network are seeing what they can do to provide their needs when they return home.

    The Living Network was able to check on and monitor their condition, health and needs. We were able to connect people who had never met Bob or his wife. They were in turn able to help him get the missing few items that he felt he needed. We also have other people in the network who are standing by to offer more assistance as there is another storm on its way.

    None of this would have been possible without the network and the patient long suffering of the people who have stayed loyal to the precepts of God's kingdom by continuously networking together and were also willing to serve one another in faith filled love.

    Some who knew Bob were able to obtain local help from those who had no relationship with Bob but have a relationship with Christ and manifested that through the network.

    "Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:" Colossians 1:11,12

    It is easy to become impatient with people on the network who do little to support it but those who diligently remain faithful to its precepts have remained in contact and by the patience were able to help. This it the theme of the Bible and the pattern of Christ who has been patient and persevered with us.

    "Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting." 1 Timothy 1:16

    There is lots of talk about sound doctrine but if all the Christians or even some actually had the sound doctrine of the early church the country and the world would not be in its present state. The Greek words for sound doctrine comes from the words meaning healthy instructions. A healthy instruction means to do the will of the Father and not steel or covet or kill,but do what Christ said. What Christian Church does not send its people to the men who call themselves benefactors but who exercise authority one over the other despite Matthew 20:25, Mark 10:42, and Luke 22:25 which are the clear directives of Jesus?

    Yet the modern churches dare argue over sound doctrine and preachers tickle their ears instead of giving them Christ's healthy instructions, telling them to care for one another without exercising authority one over the other or coveting your neighbor's goods..

    The Church appointed by Christ was a government with ministers who were benefactors who did not exercise authority over the people they serve because they were titular public servants of a people, for the people and Christ by the Eucharist of the people. That is the word here in Ephesians 5:20 translated "Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;"

    Or read the rest of Ephesians 4:14 "That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; ... [to] ... Ephesians 6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth." where the word well means "well done" as we see in Matthew 25:21 "His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."

    Yes, sound doctrine is not about your opinion as much as it about what you do or do not do. If the Modern churches and the so called Christians in them actually had sound doctrine the world would be in a better state. Most of what they have labeled sound doctrine is really private interpretation and not about doing the will of the Father as we read in 2 Timothy 3:10 which is related to what you do and how you do it in your life.

    "But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience," which again is why we are told again in 2 Timothy 4:2 "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;"

    This network grows daily as we have God's doctrine etched in our hearts and minds by His hand and compels us in the doing of the word. We cannot be impatient with Christ living in us, our love will not falter and we will be at peace, fore bearing one another:

    2 Corinthians 6:6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,
    Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    Ephesians 4:2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

    We will not abandon those we gather with locally and far. We will remain loyal to Christ that he may live in us and that will give us cause and courage to remain with one another in faith, longsuffering, charity, patience.

    Titus 3:5 "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;"

    Hebrews 10:36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

    Keep Records

    A Congregation of Record [COR] is a Congregation of Testimony. Records are the corner markers of the ministry of everyman who seeks the kingdom. Those who will not keep records are not bearing witness nor are they providing covertures to his community. Taking the time to make the record of God's government takes diligence and courage; the steadfast hand of the workers who hold the plow in God's kingdom.

    All this depends on the Eucharist of Christ which is the free thanksgiving of the people who are willing to give freely without binding their neighbors. They must be willing to set their neighbors free if they seek to be free themselves.

    How do you tell the body of Christ from the body of the adversary?

    The overseer you seek should not be one man but a body of men holding all proper responsibilities in common.

    They should have no personal estate but they should belong to God. They must not be seeking benefits from any other ruler other than the Lord. They should be totally and exclusively Christ's servants.

    One will be endeavoring to establish the Corban of the world by exercising authority and the other will be seeking to provide the Corban of Christ by the perfect law of liberty and love.
