(A response to fierce, malicious lashon hara)
PUT AWAY ALL MALICE FROM AMONG YOU - Eph 4:31
Linkage between HalleluYah Scriptures & book, Vain Traditions
Lew White responds to a revealing email (below):
The 2Besaved.com folks – (name withheld) and the girl you connected with named “(name withheld)” seem to be involved in an attack to bring down the reputation of not only me, but the Institute for Scripture Research as well. No weapon forged against us will prevail; but most importantly we must pray they will become more like Yahusha, Who paid a very high price for loving us, and died for us all. Because He also loves (name withheld) and (name withheld), we must also love them, even while they may not understand the work Yahusha is doing in other members of His body. We have to love those Yahusha redeemed, even if they don’t love us in return. Evil does not reside in objects, made by hands of men; it resides in the human heart, and comes out in the form of “strife, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, slander, gossip, puffings-up, unrests . . .” (2Co 2:20)
Mat 15:19, 20: “For out of the heart come forth wicked reasonings, murders, adulteries, whorings, thefts, false witnessings, slanders. These defile the man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man.
Eph 4:30-32: “And do not grieve the Set-apart Spirit of Elohim, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and displeasure, and uproar, and slander be put away from you, along with all evil.
And be kind towards one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as Elohim also forgave you in Messiah.
1Ti 6:3-5: “If anyone teaches differently and does not agree to the sound words, those of our Master יהושע Messiah, and to the teaching which is according to reverence, he is puffed up, understanding none at all, but is sick about questionings and verbal battles from which come envy, strife, slander, wicked suspicions, worthless disputes of men of corrupt minds and deprived of the truth, who think that reverence is a means of gain – withdraw from such.”
Tit 3:1-3: “Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,
not to slander anyone, not to be quarrelsome, to be gentle, showing all meekness to all men.
For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, led astray, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in evil and envy, being hated and hating one another.”
Php 1:15-18: “Some indeed proclaim Messiah even from envy and strife, but some also out of pleasure – the former announce Messiah from selfish ambition, not sincerely, thinking to add distress to my chains, but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the Good News.
What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Messiah is announced. And in this I rejoice, in fact, I shall rejoice.”
We are not to lash-out or make justification for our actions before men, but silently accept whatever persecution may come our way, and it will be the “religious” sector that will be the most severe toward those who are making progress for Yahusha’s reign. Yahusha is our Creator and Sovereign, and we must focus on Him without distraction. Pray for those who persecute you, and you will be like your Father in Shamayim.
Love never fails,

Just wanting to make sure you got the emails. You can see by the dates which came first. I want you to know the way they started was I clicked on the Halleuyah scripture website and emailed them asking how to get them cheaper. If they are not to be sold, can I get them by just paying the cost of printing. THAT IS ALL I ASKED! She took it from there. Not very nice. I kept asking her the same question. Never an answer, only bashing. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! I am absolutely sure now that the two are connected. On Lew's facebook today I saw a video www.vaintraditions.com. I know they are also connected. And, they admit the books are not even printed yet. Money! Give us money! Hmmmm..... Isn't that what they are accusing Lew of? Hypocrites!
INTERNATIONAL NAZARENE BEIT DIN ruled on this matter: www.fossilizedcustoms.com/messianicbeitdin.html
Luk 15:2-7: “And the Pharisees and scribes grumbled, saying, ‘This One receives sinners and eats with them.’ And He spoke this parable to them, saying,
‘What man among you, having a hundred sheep, and having lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And having found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
And having come home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’
I say to you that in the same way there shall be more joy in the heaven over one sinner repenting, than over ninety-nine righteous ones who need no repentance.’”
Put on love, and go find the lost sheep; please don’t grumble and persecute one another.
Pray you are never attacked maliciously by other brothers for what you have to do.
It isn’t very pleasant, but makes a bad situation magnitudes worse.
Pray for the lost to be found; they are the ones we’re hunting.
