How Sit Ye


Matthew 9:10 No And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.

Matthew 13:1 On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea.

Matthew 13:2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that He went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore

Matthew 24:3  Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
Matthew 26:20-21 Now when the even was come, He sat down with the twelve. And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

Mark 2:15 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.

Mark 3:31-34 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. And the multitude sat about him, (As he sat) and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! What we see is that Christ went out to the people and sat where they sat. And He and His disciples taught in the manner that God hand commanded the Levites – that they were to wander and teach. Whereas the rabbis built for themselves houses so that the people might come unto them ,and under the rule and influence of this false temple of Talmudic law.  

Contrast this with Christ sitting and teaching in the fields, Teaching by the sea, He taught in the streets and sat where publicans drunks and prostitutes plied their trade, and He and His disciples taught house to house throughout all of Israel and Samaria. Taking no tithes, and no offerings, nor the gifts of bribes that the Pharisees so coveted. Instead Christ taught His disciples “Freely give as you have freely received.” Which was the command given unto the wandering teaching Levites.  The Ek-klesia of the first and most of the second century was an Ek-klesia of households made up of those who had come out from Talmudic synagogues with their pews, platforms, and pulpits, and their cantors (Trained song leaders) none of which was commanded by God in the law of Moses, and none of which was in the Temple in Jerusalem. And none of which was in the household meetings of the Ek-Klesia for the better part of the first two centuries. Until the time when the church fathers began to meet with the rabbis and had them teach them Talmudic law and then there began a flurry Talmudic activity as the Ek-Klesia from one city against another raced to build their own synagogues and depart from an Ek-Klesia of households unto a synagogue of households in which all the priests of households were nullified and hireling Christian Rabbis were brought in with pews and platforms and pulpits and alters and trained singers and the need now for tithes and offerings – that which had only been given to the Temple in Jerusalem. which thing became a snare  unto the Ek-klesia just as the golden ephod became a snare unto the house of Gideon.

Mark 4:1 And He began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that He entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.

Mark 9:35 And He sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

Mark 12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

Mark 13:3 And as He sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,

Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Luke 4:20 And He closed the book, and he gave it again to the (Scroll) minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him. (Because they expected him to expound and preach according to the traditions of the Pharisees – but Did not stand as they, he walked away from the pulpit of the Pharisees,  and he spoke no more in any synagogue – instead he walked among men and sat where they sat and taught.)

Luke 7:36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that He would eat with him. And He went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.

Luke 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, (As he sat) and heard his word.

Luke 11:37-39 And as He spake, a certain Pharisee besought Him to dine with Him: and He went in, and sat down to meat. And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. (As taught by the Sages and Rabbis of the Mishnah) And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

Luke 24:29-31 But they constrained Him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And He went in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as He sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. (This would not have occurred had they not constrained the stranger to stay with them for the night – how many times have we constrained strangers to stay the night in our house?)

John 6:3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.

John 6:10 And Jesus (Being seated) said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

John 8:2 And early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and He sat down, and taught them. (We make note here that Christ sat and taught in the Temple but not the synagogue and here to he did not use their pulpits of the Pharisees nor stand on their platforms.)

On the platforms of the synagogues that are expressly forbidden in the law of Moses, and behind the Babylonian pulpits of the synagogues built to hide ones’ skirts?

Whose traditions do we follow when we preach and teach in synagogues neither Christ nor the apostles commanded?

Are we indeed Christ’s disciples or someone else’s?

Matthew 23:1- 5 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying The (Talmudic) scribes and the (Talmudic) Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: (Which they gained through unlawful subterfuge so as to gain authority over the priesthood and thereby seixe control over Judaism.) All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 4For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, (An invention of their so called great  sages and great rabbis while in Babylon -- And Christ speaks here of them ever broaden these so as to show to men their supposed spirituality and their supposed righteousness ) and (These) enlarge the borders of their garments, (False priestly robes making them more ornate than those of the priests and high priestsThis is what Christ spoke of as wolves dressed in shepherds clothing -- These are the robes that we preachers, his ministers and his choir wear in so many, many Evangelical Fundamentalist, Pentecostal and Charismatic churches today as they walk in the spirit of their fathers but know not why. And where there are no robes the same  is why these wear fancy suits and ties – none of which Christ nor the apostles commanded – making themselves distinct and instantly recognized by the saved and unsaved alike as “Holy Men” as “Rabbi’s” and their disciples.) And love the uppermost rooms  -- (Rooms filled with those or notoriety power and wealth that they can hobnob with to seek their favor and financial gifts and to gain clout and influence.) at feasts, and the chief seats (These are the seats on the platform that look like thrones that we see in many, many Evangelical Fundamentalist, Pentecostal and Charismatic churches and when they do not have these these occupy the foremost church pew or seating) in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, (Along the streets and byways by the commoners and by all the merchants also)  and to be called of men, Rabbi,(Of) Rabbi(S).  (This is not the word teacher which the Levites were commanded to be).

(Rabbi, in [Talmudic] Judaism, means a religious ‘teacher’, or more literally, ‘great one’. The word Rabbi is derived from the Hebrew root word רַב, rav, [RaB]  which in biblical Hebrew means ‘great’ or ‘distinguished (in knowledge)’. --- The rabbi is not an occupation (A money earning position, and thus Christ mocks the Rabbis by calling them hirelings)  found in the Torah [Nor in the prophets] as such; the first time this word [Rabbi Raab or Rav] is mentioned is in the Mishnah (most commonly thought to be codified around 200 C.E  (The Mishnah was around at the time of John the Baptist and Christ and is quoted and cited throughout the Gospels) --  The basic form of the rabbi developed in the Pharisaic and Talmudic era.

Therefore those that will live by their synagogues whether they are Christian or Jewish and its Talmudic doctrine and traditions shall all indeed die with them and be destroyed by them. – as their synagogues they so trusted in bear witness against them.

Luke 17:20-21 And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, (The men of the synagogues and rabbinical schools) when the kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: (It is invisible to your eye because the kingdom has no synagogues, it has not buildings with idolatrous symbols declaring their existence – because the kingdom is in people and is in the households of the poor and the common people who do dress also as the common people – Therefore it is invisible to you and the eye of the fowler.) Neither shall they (The children of the kingdom) say, (Do as ye do crying out we have a baby synagogue) Lo here! or, (We are starting a synagogue) lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Who believe my words and follow after truth.)

Matthew 24:23 -31 Then if any man (Talmudic Christian) shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, (In this synagogue) or there; (in that synagogue) believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, (Anti-Christs as the Apostle John declares) and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you (Prophesied) before. (Christ is declaring he is repeating this because it is important that we know this) Wherefore if they (Those of the Klesia; the disciples of Christian rabbis) shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; (In our secret underground synagogue – come fellowship with us – let us break bread together) go not forth:  (Or) behold, he is in the secret chambers; (Of our underground church in a town or city you must come to support the Talmudic body of Christ and work spiritual warfare to hold back the fourth beast of Daniel and the true Anti-Christ) so believe (Obey them not) it not. (And go thou not lest their synagogues and their members cry out in witness against thee and thy household.) For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (And as to these hidden and secret underground Christian synagogues – which teach the living death of the Mishnah and the Talmud.) For wheresoever the carcase  (Of them) is, there will the eagles (Greek Vultures of the Antichrist will) be gathered together. (And completely devour them. And when the land is finally cleansed of all of them) Immediately after the tribulation of those days (Shall come to an end – And in the hour that the false prophet and beast and all their minions shall shout and celebrate they victory over the Talmudic church and Talmudic Israel ) shall (Suddenly) the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: -- (And in that terror of darkness) And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth (That serve the beast and the false prophet and Ant-Christ)  mourn, (Cry out in great fear [If you have not read the article Who shall dwell with the Everlasting Burnings – you probably should do so, to help you understand in scripture what is written hereafter.]) and (As) they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of (The Shekina of) heaven (That is behind the veil of the tabernacle in heaven) with power (Shall the fire of the Shekina) and (with) great glory (Fervent heat cleanse and purge the heavens and come down as the great deluge of Noah and sweep away, vaporizing all the ungodly.) And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, on the earth those (The faithful The Ek-Lectos of God – Those that can dwell with the everlasting burnings. As well as the Ek-Lektos ) from one end of heaven to the other.(That all of these shall be the bride of Christ and members indeed of the household of God.)

The word of the Lord thunders forth to all those that have ears to hear. This is the hour in which many things shall come to pass to those who read these words – Of the children of righteousness only those who have entered into personal justification and personal sanctification of the Lord shall receive the mark of the Lord on their foreheads, and of those that so seek the Lord so love him and so press of these shall become the Ek-Lectos of God

The klesia stands in the outer court with the laver and the altar, Those who receive the personal justification and personal sanctification  (The True Ek-Klesia) can enter into the holy place and minister unto the Lord in the alter of incense and with the table of the show bread and these shall go in and out to minister to the Klesia but of this Ek-Klesia – there are those that shall be further cleansed and further stripped of defilement and corruption until the crown of His glory comes upon them and they become the Ek-Lektos of God. And these shall be translated in and out of the holy of holies even unto the everlasting burnings of God and these shall minister unto the Ek-Klesia and the Klesia but shall no more depart the tabernacle.

This is what Paul saw and strived for that he had not entered into for the time was not yet. But the hour is now upon us that these things shall come to pass and even the heavens shall be opened as the Ek-Lecktos shall be able to enter the holy of holies,

Forsake your wicked and perverse way and depart from the Talmudic doctrines of your fathers  

Pray and cry out with all your heart unto God

Worship in Spirit and trurh

Read and fall in love with the word of God

Hear the word that proceedeth from the Father

And humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God

And He shall be found of you – when ye shall seek Him with all your heart.
