Listen as Arthur addresses Questions, Comments, and the Issues that affect our lives.
I am not sure what to call you. I know that some Messianics call their leaders Rabbi. May I call you Rabbi?
Arthur’s Condensed Message
Even though many Messianics address their leaders as Rabbi, there is only one Rabbi and His name is Yeshua! Yeshua didn’t have a problem being addressed as Rabbi. However, He forbad His disciples from being called Rabbi.
Rabbi means “Great One” or “Master”. To call another man Rabbi is to elevate that man to the status of Master, or Messiah. We will only remain humble when we follow the instructions the Master gave us.
I do not have an issue with people calling me by my name, Arthur. I also identify with the Biblical terms (such apostle, prophet, pastor, teacher, minister, deacon, etc.) that I am called to or ordained as. Nobody in the Bible was called Reverend!
But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Messiah; and all ye are brethren.
Listen as Arthur addresses the use of “Rabbi”
Using the title of Rabbi, against the directives of Scripture, is only one of many traps in the Messianic Faith.
Religious Traps in the Messianic Faith
Right information produces right living. Wrong information produces wrong living.
Mature people set boundaries.
It is so important for us to be where Father has called us to be.
We know that where Father’s Presence is, our needs are met.
It is a tremendous blessing for the Almighty to give you the name for your child, because not only will He give you the name of the child, He will give you the destiny of the child.
Father will give you what you need and He will prepare you for things you don’t even see coming.
There are things that you all are going to experience tomorrow that Father is preparing you for today.
To believe in Yeshua, is to believe in His Word.
Yeshua is the Atonement sacrifice for not only the sins of Israel, but also the sins of the world.
On Passover, Yeshua became the atonement sacrifice for our sins.
He IS coming back a second time whether you are looking for Him or not!
Until next time… Blessings to You and Yours,
