I have tried to do my best to never make self-aggrandizing, self-promoting statements these days, but I know I have stated in the past that everything in the Scriptures point to the simple principle of a seed and the ancient meaning of Biblical words. Now, you see, that is my hammer and everything else is a nail. I have often heard that said from the pulpit but rarely practised. I wonder if some people get out much. Everybody is saying the same thing and making the same proclamations! There are a lot of claims that can be important. There are a lot of claims that can even be very important. But everybody’s claim cannot be the most important claim. Somebody is fibbing. I will just cut to the chase. The confusion in this walk of ours is not because YOU or I do not understand or YOU don’t get it! The confusion is because there are hundreds of Hebrew Roots and You Tube channel teachers all teaching contrary views on the same subjects. All claiming they are just presenting the truth. Hundreds of man-cave Bible detectives are claiming that they are right and all who disagree are wrong. Many of these same teachers more than subtly suggest that if you disagree with them, you are disagreeing with God! We (notice I said we), are responsible for the confusion and chaos in our walk and not the stubbornness or ignorance of the followers of this walk. I will say it again. It is the multitudes of teachers that are the problem. Too many of us use over-the-top language, lunging to grab our piece of the pie or 15 minutes of fame. We blast the public with hundreds of monologs every day. We rarely confer with each other or allow iron to sharpen iron. Rarely is an understatement for I could not find a word that actually means more rarely than rarely. How about non-existent! Most teachers in this movement, I dare call it so, have little to no accountability to anyone. Because we can, we are collectively bombarding the masses with contrary information in books, CD’s, DVD’s, MP3’s, flash drives, YouTube® postings, podcasts, digital media, and the occasional live lectures at a rapid fire pace and then blaming the confusion on the receivers of that information. WE are the reason for the confusion!
“Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith YHVH ’Elohiym; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.”
