The word 'DIDACHE' is Greek and means 'doctrine/teaching' I believe in the 'Kanon' or 'RULE' of faith. Therefore I present this teaching/doctrine, my words to you are those of Jude; "Beloved, while I was very diligent to write you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints." Jude 3. Knowing that I shall receive greater judgement at the 'seat of Messiah' for what I have taught is a sobering thought to me. Thus I present my work to you as a gift from our Lord and Saviour Joshua the Christ. I have included links to Early Congregation Documents and The Apostolic Fathers; so that you might gain some insight into the 'FAITH' which was 'ONCE' delivered to the saints. It's verily in the love of Joshua I just want to share with you the wonderful blessings that God has bestowed upon me, through the poems He has given me, and Bible Studies that He has by grace allowed me to write. ( For instance, the early church knew nothing of a rapture before or in mid seven years, they taught that the congregation would suffer tribulation, that Yeshua would come at the end, 'catch up' the congregation and destroy the wicked one. ) that is the 'faith once delivered to the saints' see my study PAROUSIA, God bless you richly as you read what I've written in Yeshua' name, amen !!
Also I would like to make comment that the believer is NOT to be part of any division or schism in the church, for heretics cause division, we are not part of any denomination either, in the day of the Apostle Paul some were saying ' I am of Paul: and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of the Christ' 1 Corinthians 1:12. So too in this day some say I am of the Churches of Christ; I of the Brethren; I of the Baptist; I of the Assemblies of God, etc. etc. THIS IS WRONG, for all believers are members of the Churches of Christ; the Brethren; the Assemblies of God; the BODY OF THE CHRIST; the Household of faith; the Saints; the Beloved; the Brotherhhod; etc. etc. for these are terms used by the Apostles of the believers, we are NOT to become divided; but keep the unity of the Spirit.
IT IS TO BE NOTED THAT I STAND WITH THE APOSTLES AND THOSE WHOM THEY TAUGHT; THE EARLY CONGREGATION or 'CHURCH.'
THUS I DO NOT CARE IF ALL HEAVEN AND ALL EARTH OPPOSE ME...I WILL STAND FORTH AND CONFESS THAT YESHUA IS THE WORD MADE FLESH, HE IS THE MESSIAH, HE IS THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD !!! AND I ALSO DECLARE THAT IF ANY DENY THIS HE IS AN ANTI CHRIST. see 1 John 2:22 - 24; 4:14,15.

JN 6:51-63; `'I am the living bread that came down out of the heaven; if any one may eat of this bread he shall live -- to the age; and the bread also that I will give is my flesh, that I will give for the life of the world.'
The Jews, therefore, were striving with one another, saying, `How is this one able to give us `his' flesh to eat?'
Jesus, therefore, said to them, `Verily, verily, I say to you, If ye may not eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and may not drink his blood, ye have no life in yourselves;
he who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, hath life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day;
for my flesh truly is food, and my blood truly is drink;
he who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, doth remain in me, and I in him.
`According as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, he also who is eating me, even that one shall live because of me;
this is the bread that came down out of the heaven; not as your fathers did eat the manna, and died; he who is eating this bread shall live -- to the age.'
These things he said in a synagogue, teaching in Capernaum;
many, therefore, of his disciples having heard, said, `This word is hard; who is able to hear it?'
And Jesus having known in himself that his disciples are murmuring about this, said to them, `Doth this stumble you?
if then ye may behold the Son of Man going up where he was before?
the spirit it is that is giving life; the flesh doth not profit anything; the sayings that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life;'
1COR 11:23-28; 'For I received from the Lord that which also I did deliver to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was delivered up, took bread,
and having given thanks, he brake, and said, `Take ye, eat ye, this is my body, that for you is being broken; this do ye -- to the remembrance of me.'
In like manner also the cup after the supping, saying, `This cup is the new covenant in my blood; this do ye, as often as ye may drink `it' -- to the remembrance of me;'
for as often as ye may eat this bread, and this cup may drink, the death of the Lord ye do shew forth -- till he may come;
so that whoever may eat this bread or may drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, guilty he shall be of the body and blood of the Lord:
and let a man be proving himself, and so of the bread let him eat, and of the cup let him drink;'
From YOUNGS LITERAL TRANSLATION
The reason I cite the above texts is to show that no man may hinder any believer taking communion and that it would seem that any person who refuses or is taught that they cannot take communion, is firsly a person with NO life, and or secondly is a person who has been taught great error by false teachers, (the Jehovah's Witnesses are a good example of this error;) BUT the words of the Messiah are full of grace and truth. So let every believer after examining themself, PARTAKE OF COMMUNION and let no man hinder you, for the Lord Yeshua/Jesus said 'He who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, hath life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day'
DOB IN A PAEDOPHILE
As regards children; Yeshua said to his disciples, 'It is impossible that snares will not be set, but woe to that person who sets them. It would be to his advantage that he have a millstone hung around his neck and that he be thrown into the sea, rather then that he ensnare one of these little ones.'
I therefore encourage any children who are being molested by family members, pastor, police, priest, teacher or any other; that you be not afraid to, dob them in to the authorities, who are there to bring these evildoers to justice.
DOB IN A PAEDOPHILE
Obey the Lord
and wear a smile;
Dob in a filthy paedophile.
Be real quick
do not delay;
Dob in a paedophile today.
Obey the Lord
have peace the while;
Dob in that wicked paedophile !
dob in = Australian slang, to tell somebody about somebody elses actions
Christians MUST OPPOSE the notion of same sex marriage, and declare it an abomination and great wickedness. WE must teach again and again, that BUGGERERS do NOT inherit the kingdom of God.
'Knowe yee not that the vnrighteous shall not inherite the kingdome of God? Be not deceiued: neither fornicatours, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor wantons, nor buggerers,' 1 Cor 6:9
