Endrun

Is it the endrun for Jeshurun?

Deuteronomy 32:15 KJV
But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness ; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

Jeshurun or Israel has forsaken God, not by ignoring him, but by ignoring his Son. In their hubris they believe they are allowed to approach God the Father directly. Deuteronomy 32:18 KJV
Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.

1 Timothy 2:5-6 KJV For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; [6] Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

He is the scepter extended to Jew and Gentile alike. If one would live they must accept him. John 3:16

If they recognize him, the men of Israel can move out of their shame which they have confused with righteousness and uncover their head when they pray. 1 Corinthians 11:4 KJV
Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.

You can’t run around our Rock, Jesus, to get to Jehovah. And you can’t get to Heaven relying on your Culture (fatness).

Matthew 23:8 KJV
But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

Aptitude

I recently saw a sign inside a Catholic Church on EWTN that said, Jesus is My Teacher. It caused me to think to myself – for how many people is that really true. How many people are truly learners?

Matthew 7:24-25 KJV
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: [25] And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

How many people hear his words and how many follow them? Not being a slow student but a quick learner. And not just a quick learner, but a doer.

Have you heard his saying and do you keep it?

Keep the Commandments. Matthew 19:17

A list of rarely followed commands:

Matthew 19:17 KJV … there is none good but one, that is, God: …

Matthew 23:9 KJV And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Matthew 23:10 KJV
Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

1 Corinthians 11:14 KJV Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

1 Corinthians 11:4 KJV
Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 KJV
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, [10] Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 11:5 KJV
But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

Don’t seek the least you can do which is to avoid fornication and food offered to idols Acts 21:25, but as a Christian hear all Jesus’ teachings. Hear him when he teaches through Moses and the prophets. Hear him when he teaches through Job. Hear him when he teaches through Paul. Hear him in all the other New and Old Testament authors. Hear him when its Red Letter in your Holy Bible.

The Teacher is Perfect. What’s left? The aptitude of the learner!

A Covering

On the SALSA channel I saw someone speaking about people needing a covering. He said he needed to know a person’s covering, who their preacher or pastor was.

I don’t know if this is an Hispanic thing or a left over from the influence of the Catholic Church. I tell you a fact. Your preacher or pastor is not your covering. His primary job is to teach the Word of God including the Law.

1 Timothy 2:5 KJV For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

No one should stand between you and God.

Now if we are talking literal covering. Men should not cover their heads when they pray. 1 Corinthians 11:4. When women pray, they should cover their heads – a simple scarf works. 1 Corinthians 11:5-6.
