Give the “kings of the earth” [Nations/COG Inc.] what is their due/claim [if legally bound; fish with money in its mouth; utilize the natural resources of the community to pay only the exact amount claimed by the state (taxes; Matt 17:24-27), and no more (tribute G1323, base word G1404 dragon)] – Peter had *no* money to give, but he had God to give, the gift of healing [Acts 3:1-11] – sell all excess and give to the community, to establish it and provide for its initial needs — expounding the details of the sins of this world, ostensibly to show prophetic understanding and give a warning message [the warning work; a good understanding have they who obey His commandments] shows exactly the opposite: a poor understanding and non-compliance with the character of God – we are to have no other god’s before our God, and we are not to take [hold, carry (our being and doing)] His name in vain, nor worship in vain [howbeit in vain do they worship me,teaching for commandments, the commandments of men] – “no man” nor “any man” is to claim/have the pre-eminence [by our recognition; by reputation (Christ made himself of *no* reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant; Phil 2:7)], there is no claim to the spiritual gifts of God, they are gifted to the body as a whole; ** together we are the Ministry of Jesus Christ ** in the world, and to ourselves [Eph 4:12 “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ;” Eph 4:16 “From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted (knit together) by which *every* joint (bond, connection; touch) supplieth, according to the “effectual working in the measure of *every* part,” maketh increase (growth) of the body unto the edifying (building up; household) of itself *in love*”]; WE MINISTER JESUS CHRIST TO/IN THE WORLD !!
