    Yes Jacqueline indeed it is also scriptural. The early body was as such– ‘And they devoted themselves to the apostle’s teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayer. Acts 2:42
    And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts. Acts 2:46
    What then brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. 1 Corinthians 14:26
    Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:25
    “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I among them.” Matthew 18:20

    With much gratitude , our fellowship group is honoring the instructions of Christ in spirit and truth. Examining thoroughly the words and instructions of Christ in love.

    Does 1 Peter 4:8 “above all things, having fervent love among yourselves, because love covers over a multitude of sins…” BLB
    means that as a Christian or fellow believer, one is to ignore wrong actions, attitudes, etc. from others (Christian or non-Christian) without consequence? Is this scripture meaning that no matter what another does, individually we are to cover or overlook the error, by so covering the error or wrongdoing, it is loving to do so?

    Tamekaa, this is the Youtube video that talks about people not using the scriptures.

    Something we all may have missed, from my understanding, Kamala Harris husband is Jewish, though not religiously.

    • jacqueline says:

      Lee, I was concerned that Kutchner needed more time and concerned because his father in law seemed to be unraveling.
      But Jehovah and Jesus kept it hidden from most small group watchers that Kamala’s husband was Jewish. HE, our Father, had this!
      Kutchner nor his wife ever spoke of worship either but that wasn’t a problem. Perhaps the two can if God’s will work together.
      I had a little Yorkshire terrier who could hold a grudge longer and better that President elect Biden. Through Tragedy a human has been molded.
      I could see him working with a cause regardless of party affiliation.
      If this peace initiative cements, we can see where we are more closely on the prophetic calendar.
      Temple building will be a huge marker.
      Jesu said lift your heads erect when you see prophecy fulfilling.
      My mom would have loved to see this but she encouraged me at eighteen to find another religion and sent me away. I didn’t listen then but now I am glad her words helped me get free 50 years later to be able to go into the Bible and see GOD and Jesus work.
      The witnesses believe they are the Jews, that God has substituted the Church in the Jewish nations place.
      Millions aren’t keeping on the watch because of that misleading teaching.
      It is the worse of times and the best of times.
      The true Jehovah Witnesses, the Jews, will finally soon acknowledge their Christ.
      God did not lie to Abraham as we were taught. He is keeping his word. We can trust him and know He exists because of the witness of His dealings with the Jews.

  5. jacqueline says:

    Tameka, I have a tidbit food for thought.

    We should look for opportunities to be used by God to bless others.

    The fish and loaves that the little boy had was an opportunity to consent to give Jesus his food and he was blessed.
    We are still talking about him now.
    There are opportunities all around us to look for and see if we can bring glory to God.

    And we will be blessed also as the young boy ate of that heavenly food too. Just a thought.

  6. jacqueline says:

    Food for thought. Sins and mistakes made in our past are now lessons learned.
    God does not keep track of past forgiven sins nor does he do payback.
    He has always known your name and knew you would do all that you did, then He called you. We learned our lessons and now surrender to the will of Hehovah, Jesus and His Holy Spirit,not grieving it.

    • Tamekaa Anderson says:

      Apologies for not responding to this Food for thought sooner. I have been getting my house in order.🙏
      The Ruach HaQodesh declares : “GOD is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins, he forgives them and CLEANSE us from everything we’ve done wrong. If we say “We have never sinned,” we turn GOD into a liar, and his WORD is not in us 1 John 1:9,10
      According to The Word of Truth of Father Yahweh by Yeshua sins, transgressions, error or mistakes we have made in the past are to be confessed and forsaken.

  7. Bro Dave says:

    Sr. Tamekaa,
    It is not my habit to spend much time on any sort of social media platform, but I want to welcome you into the fray.

    I do have a comment on YHWH and His tolerance (I use King James Version because of its universal availability and the fact that most concordances (Strong\’s Concordance numbers are seen with selected words) and commentaries are used it as their source):

    YHWH has demonstrated His righteous tolerance in dealing with His true servants.

    While I do not wish to fill up your page, I believe this passage needs to be quoted in its entirety for the sake of understanding the context showing Abraham\’s faithfulness and YHWH\’s tolerance of both Sarah\’s doubts and Abraham\’s bargaining with the Supreme Architect of the entire universe:

    (Genesis 18:1 KJV)  And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;
    (Genesis 18:2 KJV)  And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
    (Genesis 18:3 KJV)  And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:
    (Genesis 18:4 KJV)  Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:
    (Genesis 18:5 KJV)  And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.
    (Genesis 18:6 KJV)  And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.
    (Genesis 18:7 KJV)  And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.
    (Genesis 18:8 KJV)  And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.
    (Genesis 18:9 KJV)  And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.
    (Genesis 18:10 KJV)  And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.
    (Genesis 18:11 KJV)  Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
    (Genesis 18:12 KJV)  Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
    (Genesis 18:13 KJV)  And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
    (Genesis 18:14 KJV)  Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
    (Genesis 18:15 KJV)  Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.
    (Genesis 18:16 KJV)  And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.
    (Genesis 18:17 KJV)  And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;
    (Genesis 18:18 KJV)  Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
    (Genesis 18:19 KJV)  For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
    (Genesis 18:20 KJV)  And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
    (Genesis 18:21 KJV)  I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
    (Genesis 18:22 KJV)  And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
    (Genesis 18:23 KJV)  And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
    (Genesis 18:24 KJV)  Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?
    (Genesis 18:25 KJV)  That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
    (Genesis 18:26 KJV)  And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
    (Genesis 18:27 KJV)  And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:
    (Genesis 18:28 KJV)  Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.
    (Genesis 18:29 KJV)  And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty\’s sake.
    (Genesis 18:30 KJV)  And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.
    (Genesis 18:31 KJV)  And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty\’s sake.
    (Genesis 18:32 KJV)  And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten\’s sake.
    (Genesis 18:33 KJV)  And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

    Of course, YHWH already knew the outcome of the bargain, yet He allowed Abraham to continue his pleadings without saying, \”Oh, shut up, you insignificant human.\”

    And, there was Moses, a type of Christ:
    (Numbers 11:28 KJV)  And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid H3607 them.
    (Numbers 11:29 KJV)  And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD\’S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!
    (Numbers 11:30 KJV)  And Moses gat him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel.

    And there was Christ:

    (Luke 9:49 KJV)  And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.
    (Luke 9:50 KJV)  And Jesus said unto him, Forbid G2967 him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

    And, again, Christ:

    (Matthew 19:13 KJV)  Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
    (Matthew 19:14 KJV)  But Jesus said, Suffer G863 little children, and forbid G2967 them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
    (Matthew 19:15 KJV)  And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.

    And in the parable of the wheat and tares;

    (Matthew 13:27 KJV)  So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
    (Matthew 13:28 KJV)  He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
    (Matthew 13:29 KJV)  But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
    (Matthew 13:30 KJV)  Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

    There are many other Scriptures where YHWH and Christ demonstrate their love and tolerance for their servants, as well as, as Sr Jacqueline and Br Lee Anthony have written, their intolerance for sin, particularly disobedience.

    I think we have to look no further than events in today\’s world, widely adopting and condoning Satan\’s standards (FWIW, my own poor definition of \”Satan\’s standards\”, is ANY standard, view or belief that is contrary to Scripture) to have ample evidence of YHWH\’s tolerance of humans.

    But we also have to remember one other Scripture:

    (Luke 6:37 KJV)  Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
    (Luke 6:38 KJV)  Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
    (Luke 6:39 KJV)  And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
    (Luke 6:40 KJV)  The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
    (Luke 6:41 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother\’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
    (Luke 6:42 KJV)  Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother\’s eye.

  8. Lee Anthony says:

    Food for thought, I like that!
    Yeshua was certainly not tolerant and God is not a God that tolerates sin or sinful attitudes and lifestyles amongst his people. The modern church preaches only love and feels that to not tolerate certain sinful life choices that we are being hateful, it is the sin we must hate not the person.
    Come as you are maybe, but stay as you are… NO.
    God does not tolerate wickedness and to live an active life of sin and wicked behavior while professing Yeshua puts us in the same group as those that Yeshua said GET AWAY from me I never knew you!

  9. Jacqueline says:

    Also here is another food for thought question?

    “Once saved Always Saved”. Is that true?
    Well, my thought: The Jews were saved from Egypt, they were free from the grip of Pharoah and Egypt.
    The word Salvation means Yeshua, (I think) So they were permanently saved!
    But many didn’t make it into the promised land. Some started worshiping a Golden Calf when Moses was delaying his return from the mountain. (Jesus appears to be delaying)
    Some died from the snakes and others lost faith when only 2 spies came back with courage to defeat Canaaniites.

    So although they were saved, like we get saved when we get out of the grip of satan, and the practice of sin, they didn’t get into the promised land.
    They didn’t lose their salvation because that was the free gift of salvation from God. But disobedience and losing faith, then turning their back on the savior cost them the promise land.
    So I conclude that once we escape and come to Christ we are saved. But can still lose out.

    What are your thoughts, maybe?

    The Peril of Falling Away- Hebrews 6:1-6
    1Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2of instruction about washings and laying on of hands, and the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment. 3And this we will do, if God permits. 4For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. 7For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God; 8but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned.”

    ____”The name Yeshua is a shortened version of the name Yehoshua or Joshua and is the literal Hebrew word for Salvation.”

    • Tamekaa Anderson says:

      The saying \”Once saved ALWAYS saved..\” I searched the scriptures, and found it NOWHERE. Actually, one who has such an attitude is boastful- overly confident.
      James 4:16,17 says, As it is, you boast in your proud intention. All such boasting is evil. Anyone, then, who knows the right thing to do, yet fails to do it, is guilty of sin.
      King Solomon declared, \”Surely there is no righteous man on earth who does good and NEVER sins.\”
      Zephaniah 2:3 Seek YHWH all the meek of the earth….: seek righteousness, seek lowliness, if so be that you MAY be hid in the day of the LORD\’S wrath.
      The word may is a verb meaning, expressing possibility. 🙌
      Amplified Study Bible
      2 Peter 1:10- Therefore, believers, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you[be sure that your behavior reflects and confirms your relationship with GOD];for by doing these things [actively developing these virtues], you will never stumble [in your spiritual growth and will live a life that leads others away from sin];
      This scripture treasure implies that by doing or obeying Yeshuah instructions we stand and grow spiritually, yet still upon CONDITION of our obedience to Ruach HaQodesh.

  10. Jacqueline says:

    Tamekaa, Your subject of “Food for Thought” gave me a page to put a thought.

    Was Jesus intolerant, yes, he rebuked evil spirits and took a whip to clear out the temple yard of the moneychangers?

    It is like our Immune System, it is intolerant! If it wasn’t we would be dead especially now. So that is food for thought

    • Tamekaa says:

      Jesus was not tolerant whenever dealing with evil. Mark 1:34 tells us how Jesus dealt with the demons.

      Mark 1:34
      He cured many who were sick with various diseases and forced many demons out of people. However, he would not allow the demons to speak. After all, they knew who he was.
      GOD’S WORD® Translation

      • jacqueline says:

        Wow, I never thought about the fact he wouldn’t allow the demons to speak. Some would say that was wrong but he knew they were from the devil and he was there to defeat the demonic influence.

        BTW; Welcome as a writer on the site!
        We look forward to the many thoughts you bring to our little study group.

        Maybe when you get the time you could share with us how you found us.

        It still amazes us how we knew about you but you didn’t know about us but was actually on a study with one of us for over a year!
        I was reluctant to introduce myself to you but it seems the Holy Spirit said well “Watch this”! I will do it in a very unbelievable way.

        • Tamekaa Anderson says:

          It has truly been a blessing to be apart of the group. As each participant brings something valuable and useful to walk after Yeshuah Ha’Mashiach daily obediently.

          • jacqueline says:

            Tamekaa, I feel the same way.
            Adam was king and then Eve came. Jehovah dealt with each of them personally.
            Noah was talked to alone by Jehovah and his small group survive as acceptable to Jehovah.
            Moses was one on one with Jehovah and answered individually to him.
            Daniel and just 2 others formed a small group of worshippers in Babylon.
            Jonah was individually talked to by Jehovah.
            Jesus individually answered to his Father. His intimate group was small just 12.
            Job and his small family and workers played a part in the saga of loyalty.
            Mary, Elizabeth, and her husband. Joseph when alone was visited by the angel of Jehovah.
            David alone, Solomon was given immense knowledge, alone.
            I guess what I am trying to say is the Bible deals with small groups all the time.

            Israel was a Nation coming from one man told to leave with his family unit. This seems to be the exception rather than the rule.

            Apostasy and the man of lawlessness was coming together when they got Bishops and later Popes. Then the Reformation didn’t correct the issue of huge organizations but saw the money advantage and perpetuated the huge church groups.

            I agree with Chuck Missler that there has never been any meaningful study of the Bible itself in large groups of bible studies.

            We were asked by a Bible student brother in an amazing way, “You guys aren’t associated with a larger group’????? We said no but we talk to all the thousands of other small group Bible studies out there.
            There are even small family groups. Una is one of them, her family is a small group and she is doing well.
            So there are few and in between any huge worship groups that Jehovah or Jesus communed with all the trappings of the field service and reports, ritual conventions, and all the rules that go with it. Special books only and letters upon letters with new regulations every week. Special language, other than the simplicity of the words in the Bible.
            I humbly feel Jehovah is pleased with the thousands of small Christian groups all over the world.
            Governing bodies, Popes, tribunals, and committee after committee. Elder meetings and schools to teach dogma, doctrine, and how to enforce organizational rules on the congregation.

            Don’t miss it at all. Being answerable and subject to Jehovah, the King Jesus and the Holy Spirit is so refreshing. The fear of God is what we can concentrate on now with reverential fear and love.
