"Yeshua said to him. Let the dead bury their dead and go, proclaim the Kingdom of Eloah ... After these things, Yeshua appointed from his talmidim seventy-two others, and sent them two by two before his face to every region and city that he was about to go. And he said to them, The harvest is great, and the laborers few. Therefore, pray the master of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest ..." (Luke 9:60-62, 10:1-2, The Hebraic-Roots Version Scriptures) ---------------------------------------------------------------
When I hear news reports about all the murderers, the fornicators, the adulterers, the liars, the thieves, the homosexuals who want to get married, etc., I say to myself "These are the folks that Jesus hung around with. Yet sometimes in the body of Christ, we don't want to be anywhere near them."

All of the above I did. All of it. Most I don't do anymore. I say most, because there are times when I don't tell the truth out of convenience. But, I do it less and less.

That's because Adonai is conforming me into the image of Christ by the power of His Spirit in me. And, I am transforming my mind not to be conformed to the pattern of this world. (Romans 12:1-2)

Yet Jesus was with me before I was saved, and he is still with me. In Him I live and have my being. (Acts 17:24-28)

The harvest is still great.

The workers are still few.

We still must pray to the Eloah, Master of the Harvest, to send out workers.

We must still go out to every region and city where the Holy Spirit leads us.

Heaven will still rejoice over one sinner saved.

Heaven rejoiced and still rejoices over me!

"By this time a lot of men and women of doubtful reputation were hanging around Jesus, listening intently. The Pharisees and religion scholars were not pleased, not at all pleased. They growled, 'He takes in sinners and eats meals with them, treating them like old friends.' Their grumbling triggered this story.

Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one. Wouldn't you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbors, saying, 'Celebrate with me! I've found my lost sheep!' Count on it—there's more joy in heaven over one sinner's rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue." (Luke 15:1-7, The Message)
