What Fellowship Requires

Hello Victor and Paul,

Well, your website is quite something. Almost everything you write about I can relate to from Scriptures. (I say almost because I at this point do not necessarily agree with every theological stance you have). At minimum, you certainly have views and approaches that will appear highly controversial.

At that, I’m not sure to what level of commitment you’ll be interested in for fellowship. For close on ten years now, I’ve been scouting for a form of biblical Eldership or Leadership. Years ago, I cried to the Lord. It is easy for anyone deceiving oneself. Yes, many love Him but that means nothing in itself. It is also difficult commending men. But if anything, I have the feeling that this relationship might be found with you.

Specifically, in elder- or leadership, I’m referring to Victor. I also find Paul’s writing and approach quite novel. Some will say this is not the Spirit of Messiah, but I’m no more so sure. It simply needs to be evaluated. That which claims to be “love” out there is found lacking in almost everything. So regarding age and experience, if we’re both prepared for commitment, I’ll be relating to Victor as an elder; if I’m to commit myself and open myself in the areas that need to be. That means, if there is anything to discuss, I hope it to be a one on one with Victor, without carbon copying to someone else. Whatever you choose to do afterwards, I’ll leave to the Lord.

For my part, I’m continuing reading your website for now, to get to know you (both) more. If necessary, I’m also willing to fly out to Canada to meet with you personally. If so, I’ll pay for lodging, food and fare myself. At present this appears affordable, I do not know about tomorrow. If so, my lodging will be outside your parameters. It appears you run a full time farm, on which I’ll also be prepared to do menial work in the time that I’m there. I have no experience whatsoever in farming. If you’re not too busy and will be able to find personal time with me, i.e. if the Lord Jesus permits me to come, that would be great.

At that, I’m also a little wary about conferring with flesh and blood (Gal. 1:16). It might be distrust in God’s Leadership, but I may still have to learn. What do you make of these that I write, Victor and Paul? What are your thoughts?

Regards,

Steve, our fellowship is in the Lord Jesus Christ, not doctrine. It’s not what you believe but whom you believe that’s essential. If you believe the Lord, He will see you through. 

“God is faithful, by Whom you were called to the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:9 MKJV).

So when we walk with Him, He dictates what relationship we’ll have with Him and each other. It’s not our call or yours. 

“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7 MKJV).

Walking in the light with Him is what we’re here for. Fellowship requires unconditional surrender of the will to and by faith in Jesus Christ, nothing less. 

Victor and Paul

Putting God First

We can’t argue with putting God first and that in worshiping Him in spirit and truth, He will indeed guide us in what it is He wants of us! Can you boldly and honestly tell us you have “put God first, not yourself,” and have thus “gained love and understanding”? If so, we’d certainly like to hear more. Victor

Sir I was raised in United Pentecostal Church my entire life I am 57 years old at this time and have not attended church for the past 20 months because reasons I will disclose later.  Numerous things led up to my departure from the church and I Have Become somewhat Disturbed by not believing  now the things that I was told all my life to believe examples are speaking in tongues is a sign of receiving the Holy Ghost  and a mandate to pay 10% tithing. Don't get me wrong I believe in tongues and interpretation if it is from God but when people walk around with their eyes wide open blabbering I am disturbed by it.My life has been plagued by tragedy and I have fallen short of my goals but I really want to be a true child of God.  David   From: Victor Hafichuk To: David Cc: Paul Cohen Sent: Saturday, August 13, 2016 9:41 PM Subject: RE: Desiring to be free!

Rapture Doctrine Is Strange, Unworthy of Consideration
From: Hugh To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, June 22, 2016 9:06 PM Subject: A couple of things I love your website. Please keep up the good work.  I don’t know how long ago you posted the article on Doug Hamp, but I want to comment.   I agree that this man is a false teacher for many reasons, but I disagree with the two reasons you selected to debunk him. The sons of God were angels, just check Job.  Also, Enoch is quite clear and elucidating on this, if you believe in Enoch, as I do. Jude referred to Enoch as a prophet. Second Peter bolsters Enoch.  The bible is littered with phrases right out of Enoch.   Secondly, the reason so many Christians argue about pre or post tribulation rapture, is because there is great evidence for both.  Unfortunately, people take one side or the other, when in fact if prophecy is fulfilled there will be two raptures; first for the elect and then for those who will come through fire.   The prospect of prophecy being fulfilled doesn’t look good because it was supposed to happen in the generation of Jesus, but it didn’t, so something else might happen.  Also, many prophecies of the Old and New Testaments remain unfulfilled, which supports the idea that we just might have a different ending that spelled out in the Bible.
