Marriage is..…… ……
firmness, faithfulness, sureness, reliability, stability, continuance
…of testimony and judgment
…of divine instruction
…truth as a body of ethical or religious knowledge
…in truth, truly (adverb)
There is a high calling on the married couple to exhibit a complex tapestry of outward signs of faith in Yeshua first, and then followed by faithfulness to the covenant of marriage.
Yeshua teaches that faithfulness is a foundational matter of the Torah. Justice and truth as a body of ethical or religious knowledge. Mercy as an outward sign of loving-kindness. Trust which grows out of faithfulness.
"Woe to you hypocritical Torah-teachers and P'rushim!
You pay your tithes of mint, dill and cumin; but you have neglected the weightier matters of the Torah — justice, mercy, trust. These are the things you should have attended to — without neglecting the others!
Marriage is so precious to Adonai that He provides highly specialized expert spiritual tools and materials for the couple to succeed. Faithfulness is included in this package.
Faithfulness is a fruit of the Spirit. These are the gifts and treasures that Yeshua has entrusted to his servants. These are the tools he has given to us to use while working in His vineyard.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, self control. Nothing in the Torah stands against such things.
The life your spouse is entrusted each to the other by Adonai.
Both the man and the woman are servants who are expected to nurture, protect, and treasure the life and heart of their betrothed. Both must care for the marriage as a delicate and beautiful living thing that belongs to the Master and King Adonai. He has given you to each other to be good stewards of the life in your betrothed. Treat each other as the precious gem that the Lord created with His own hands. You are co-laborers in His vineyard; take care of the small part of the vineyard that has been entrusted to you until His return.
The Lord, Yeshua, teaches the importance of the faithfulness of a servant in matters of ministering in the things that the Master has given. There are responsibilities that the servant holds. The most important of which is that he is expected to demonstrate faithfulness towards those around him. The servant’s behavior towards other people and with regards to the gifts and things he has been given charge over.
Notice that the word faithful appears 5 times (the number symbolizing grace) within the text regarding stewardship of the servant
"Who is the faithful and sensible servant whose master puts him in charge of the household staff, to give them their food at the proper time?
"After a long time, the master of those servants returned to settle accounts with them.
The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the other five and said, 'Sir, you gave me five talents; here, I have made five more.' His master said to him, 'Excellent! You are a good and faithful servant. You have been faithful with a small amount, so I will put you in charge of a large amount. Come and join in your master's happiness!' Also the one who had received two came forward and said, 'Sir, you gave me two talents; here, I have made two more.' His master said to him, 'Excellent! you are a good and faithful servant. You have been faithful with a small amount, so I will put you in charge of a large amount. Come and join in your master's happiness!' "Now the one who had received one talent came forward and said, 'I knew you were a hard man. You harvest where you didn't plant and gather where you didn't sow seed. I was afraid, so I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here! Take what belongs to you!' 'You wicked, lazy servant!' said his master, 'So you knew, did you, that I harvest where I haven't planted? and that I gather where I didn't sow seed? Then you should have deposited my money with the bankers, so that when I returned, I would at least have gotten back interest with my capital! Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has ten. For everyone who has something will be given more, so that he will have more than enough; but from anyone who has nothing, even what he does have will be taken away. As for this worthless servant, throw him out in the dark, where people will wail and grind their teeth!'
Matthew 25: 19-30
The Gospels are a plentiful source of the Lord’s teachings about the faithfulness of those who would be His servants.
'Excellent!' he said to him. 'You are a good servant. Because you have been faithful in a small matter, I am putting you in charge of ten towns.'
The concept of faithfulness has to do with a two- way relationship. Throughout the epistles, the co-laborers were referred to as faithful servants within the ministry. Faithfulness is a requirement among(between) the believers as well as with God. Being a good steward of that which the Lord has given to you is critical. The stewardship may include, but is not limited to, land, wealth, possessions, children, husband, ministry teams or co-laborers. The demonstration of loving-kindness towards others during our ministry time on the earth is part of maintaining the covenant with God.
Adonai remembers that we are made as individuals and that we carry those traits into the marriage covenant. Therefore, we bring distinct strengths, gifts and tasks to the marriage to strengthen it with Adonai’s help always by our side.
The scriptures teach us about our individual roles as prescribed by the Master. Each scripture shows us specific ways that the Lord will assist us to succeed in the requirements He has asked of each of His servants. For example:
Similarly, the wives must be of good character, not gossips, but temperate, faithful in everything.
1 Timothy 3:11
Then he said to me, "These words are true and trustworthy: Adonai, God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must happen soon."
Remain faithful, even to the point of death; and I will give you life as your crown.
They will go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are called, chosen and faithful will overcome along with him."
These scriptures are just a sampling of the Words of Adonai to His servants. The dominant theme is the requirement of faithfulness. We also see that Adonai sends angels, truth and information, and overcoming power to assist his servants. The expectations are high, but the provisions of Adonai are equal to the task.
"Jew & Gentile One in Messiah"
"the biblical truth lives here"
No Talmud (rabbinic teachings) and No Christian doctrine. Straight biblical teachings.
"The Route 66 Highway"...Genesis to Revelation the only perfect word of God!
Always remember Yeshua the Messiah is the same Yesterday, Today and Forever.
He was never a Catholic, Baptist, Evangelical, Pentecostal or any of the other 1,500 denominations of Christianity
He is, and always will be a Jew. And all the Talmidim (Disciples) were Messianic Jews
Why the name Beth Goyim?
Isa 56:7 I will bring them to my holy mountain and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples."
Mar 11:17 And He began to teach and say to them, "Is it not written, 'MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL THE NATIONS'
House = Beth in Hebrew People or nations =all peoples Hebrew & Gentiles
hence the name of the congregation...Beth Goyim
Messianic = meaning we believe and follow Yeshua the foretold Messiah of Israel
Congregation = group of people with a similar thought process.
