Such an anointed teaching. I couldn't wait till sabbath to watch the video because your teachings are always so anointed and it got me in the right frame of mind before I enter into sabbath.
Do you think that the ones who weren't buried touching the ground like Sarah was will be punished? I hope not but I want to know what you think.
I also wish to know what you think happens to a person when they die I heard you say a few things but I want to know what you think. I know you are busy but I always see you reply to people who ask questions and don't send automated responses like the other famous teachers like you usually do. I got so sick of that and I got hooked when you talked about being a servant and I found out you live what you preach by responding to everytime I had a question. Thank you and Shabbat Shalom.
Hey Chris, Marion here. I am a long time podcast subscriber and I know you are busy and it takes a lot for you to do all the recordings you do every week but I was horrified when I heard someone say on Facebook saying you are going to start charging a subscription fee for these. I am willing to pay if it's true but can you tell us how much it will be? In my humble opinion yours is the only one out of all the ones out there worth paying for. How will that work on Shabbat? If it is not true then you need to tell people but I saw some people say it but I haven't heard you say it. The posts seemed fishy and were from a guy from Wisdom in Torah and I don't trust those guys anymore after they cheated me out of a couple grand on last years Israel tour. I know you don't like people to talk about others but this is serious if they are saying your charging and your not to take viewers away from you. Blessings on this day to you.
I am one of Christopher's moderators for this podcast and the rumor isn't true. CHRISTOPHER IS NOT CHARGING AND WILL NOT CHARGE for his archives. He believes that these should be given freely and he had made an oath to his listeners he will never charge for what should be freely given. We would ask that you please message the people propagating such a thing and let then know it is not true and may the fear of Heaven be upon them for their gossip. CHRISTOPHER HAS NOT EVER CHARGED AND HE WILL NOT CHARGE FOR THESE TEACHINGS OR ANY OTHER OF HIS TEACHINGS.
In terms if Sarah having to touch the ground, it is a part of our tradition and the reason for it is because the ground symbolizes life cause you have trees and plants that sprout from it and it receives nourishment from Hashem from rain water, and when life is created within the soil in terms of a tree or plant we see how it feeds all of mankind including the animals and the animals we eat. So it is about having a connection with life and it is a reminder that the person is alive still but in a different way that many of us could Midrash about. Will someone be punished for not doing so? Of course not.
In terms if the second question as to where a person goes, we must realize the body is made of three parts, three pillars, and the physical is connected to the spiritual through body soul and spirit. Do not be confused when people say the spirit and soul are the same they are not. The nefesh (soul) dies according to the Scripture and in that possesses one's personality and is found within the blood "the nefesh is within the blood" many Bibles translate that to life which in physical form is correct as well. And the ruach of a person goes back to Hashem. As to what the ruach knows and sees and experiences when it does...I am not going to pretend to know cause there is a great deal of speculation and I don't wish to speculate. I do believe it becomes more after it leaves one's body and I don't mean in terms of ghosts or anything like that. I mean the persons Ruach is more connected to Hashem and lives in greater abundance. Now the Scripture also tells us that the dead will rise first when Yeshua returns now it is in a Sod level text where that is written in Revelation, Daniel, and Zechariah so I am not going to attempt to figure out that transformation but know that it will happen. I pray that helps.
As Mark had stated that is incorrect information I made a vow and an oath to you guys 3 years ago when we started recording the portions that we would never ever charge for them. It is incorrect information and I rather not think bad of the ones who are saying this I think they may just be mistaken.
I think if you're going to do these for free make them shorter because when people get a long teaching and it is thorough it takes away from the pockets of people who need to make money from their videos like Bill Cloud so they can keep doing it. But when you do them for free people listen to you because it is free and they don't buy them from other people. I think you should charge so it is equal weights and measures with other teachers. It's not fair to the others to do yours for free. I would understand putting them on YouTube for free and then have them pay $20 for the download or the DVD like Jim Staley does and that might be ok. If you want to put it up for free like you do for download then only let them get 5 minutes of it then make them buy it for the complete one. I understand you are trying to do a good thing but these guys need to make money from their teachings. We need to take care of Rico, Monte, Bill, Michael and Brad. Please consider not doing a long teaching like this for free cause it hurts the teachers we need.
REALLY? Did Y'shua charge for His teachings? Rav Shaul supported himself as a tentmaker - these people who charge for their teachings are making a profit off people who do need the teachings. Christopher is a man of his word - has not and will not charge for his teachings - the Word of YHWH is to be shared and taught without charge.Micah 3:11,12 states, "Her teachers judge for bribes and her Kohanim teach for a fee and her prophets divine for money -- yet they rely on YHWH, say 'Behold, YHWH is in our midst; no evil can befall us!' Therefore because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field; Jerusalem will become heaps of rubble and the Temple Mount will become like stone heaps in the forest." Ez. 34 warns about irresponsible shepherds who get fat off their flock.
Those who charge for their teachings make me wonder who are they serving - Y'shua said you cannot serve YHWH and money!!! We need more teachers who do not charge, those who charge are often off the mark with their teachings...beware!
Sorry Barb. I understand but however I work as a website builder I don't make much and sometimes I suffer because I don't make much but the fact is I make sure my bills for this ministry are paid first every month. And I do three shows a week, and most others put up old archives, with the exception of Andrew Gabriel Roth like me he has several new teachings every week and I know this first hand cause I am his website designer. But maybe those guys need to take up a job like I have to maintain their ministry instead of charging. Most of them are college educated they can work or they have congregations that are supposed to provide for them so therefore I think we must do what the Torah says and not charge. And I also made a vow to never charge.
Chris that ISN'T FAIR! What is the real reason you are doing this for free? Do you want them to not make enough to live, travel and pay for equipment and then you and only you will be the only game in town? What are you going to do when there is no Messianic house? You will go under too because there won't be anyone else left because they'll won't be able to stay in business. Do what's good for the whole community and level the playing field by charging.
Amazing lesson as usual. You're the Rashi of our generation rabbi. This is amazing. The thing that draws me to your lesson is it's not learning the technical things when I listen to you I hear the underlining thing with you is if a person wants to learn how to do the Torah you help us do it in the way of love for one another. We need more like this. I like listening to Rabbi Yosef from Chabad and you remind me a lot of him. Keep it up Chris.
