Are you struggling with the Moedim Code of Conduct in your fellowship?
“Let your Yes be Yes, and Your No, be No”
Some codes of conduct may have things like:
I consider this an issue of breaking Torah, therefore sin, and am taking this matter to the elder, Yahshua, my one Rabbi, in the presence of my Mishpacha.
My Questions For Those Planning to attend a Sukkoth with a code of conduct:
As you can see, I don’t really agree with hierarchy
Even though the Pentatuach sets one up. It is one of the things that Yahshua specifically said has ended. I am studying the issue of the Melchizedek priesthood, and I believe it has to do with that; how Yahshua was restored as High MalokZadok Priest, ending the Levitical priesthood. Does this pertain to all of the 613 laws? One would have to go through them one by one, and see which ones were for them at that time, and which ones were for all eternity, (such as the sabbaths and the definition of clean/unclean).
I am not saying all laws ended, or that we should not wear our Tzitziyots, but I am also not trying to lengthen them and require upper chambers at feasts, like the scribes and pharisees Mashiach rebuked.
I am assuming the fathers (who will inevitably be listed as “leaders” over their wives in any RELIGIOUS Moedim code of conduct) are the married men and fathers? Is that correct? So we must agree that men rule over their wives, as if they are cursed like Eve? But I am commanded to have one father, one leader: Mashiach! So I cannot call my husband my leader, putting the fate of my soul onto him. And my husband and I are both commanded not to call ourselves leaders, so he cannot put himself in authority over me.
Can anyone show me in Torah where it says that a husband is responsible for the fate of his wife’s soul?
My father and his father both loved YHWH very much. My father especially as he guards the commands and name, so I fall under the following passage… do you?
Ezekiel 18 (note that it also says we are not punished for the sins of our parents in this chapter):
Is this only referring to men? And only men are to be leaders? We are commanded by my Mashiach to not follow any man, but only HIM. To ask “one” (male or female) to do otherwise is leading one to to sin. To lead one to sin is not a good idea!
Daniel 11: DESCRIBING THE ANTI-MESSIAH
The most basic understanding of this, that we should love our “neighbor” as ourselves, equally applies to males and females.
In our home, we confer with each other, solve problems together, and regard each other with equal authority, while celebrating the differences in our sexes.
As one male at my local fellowship pointed out, “Debra even ruled over men,” and I am certain she was made judge by fair and just means.
That does not mean we should not judge and rebuke each other per the guidelines of Torah.
Daniel 11 describing the Anti-Messiah (parentheses mine) EMPHASIS MINE
With love and hope for equal measure, I share this. The thought of a Moedim Code of Conduct makes me
to be honest. We are to overcome, and I am overcoming a lifetime of sin, but I consider Yahshua and his helper a good person to decide my behavior, now that I am in covenant. If fellowship, or any other gathering, were at any one individual’s home, I could understand them having rules for their home, but this article refers to Moedim and they belong to YHWH, so we should not add to or take away from any of HIS rules (Debarim).
A few more verses, explaining why I am so infuriated at the idea of Moedim Code of Conduct
Matthew 7 ISR
I challenge any men who support Moedim dress codes for women, to put together 8 days worth of clothing, out of their own wardrobes, that follow the ideal dress code given to the women: including layers, tunics/long shirts, undergarments, etc.
I also challenge these men to do this WHILE ACTUALLY FOLLOWING TORAH, to the degree of not wearing mixed fabrics (a blend of cotton with synthetic, or wool and leather, etc).
I further challenge them to make these choices weather appropriate, so that they do not freeze or overheat, leading to health concerns.
