Contributions

I am the TLDR for contributions

Overview

The background of contributions is rooted in the Sabbath gathering. We believe that Paul's directives regarding the weekly assembling of believers are universal mandates for the church. Paul had an order for the gathering based on the synagogue order of service. The gathering is communal and very loose in terms of it's chronological order and structural limits. What is clear is that the purpose of gathering was to bring a contribution for the purpose of building up the church. The church is a spiritual house for the Holy Spirit to live in, so the contributions have to be spiritual contributions. So each believer, being uniquely equipped with the spiritual gifts they received from the Holy Spirit, is expected to come prepared to contribute something to edify, build up, the church.

Hermeneutics & Application

Tradition

We have diverse traditions based on our exegesis of the above doctrine. :

  1. You can literally "bring a psalm" as a contribution. This can look like just opening your bible and reading a psalm to the body.
  2. You can bring a prepared and/or well-known psalm/hymn and sing this at the gathering. You can sing alone or lead the body in the song.
  3. Under inspiration from the Spirit, you can break into a song as led by Spirit; this would just be for the body's reception (although, it would be really cool if the Holy Spirit put the same song into multiple people's hearts.

  3. 11 Concerning this we have much to say and it is difficult to explain, since you have become sluggish in hearing. 12 For indeed, although you* ought to be teachers by this time, you have need of someone to teach you again the beginning elements of the oracles of God, and you have need of milk, not solid food.Hebrews 5.11-12
  4. And he himself gave some as apostles and some as prophets and some as evangelists and some as pastors and teachers Ephesians 4.11

A Revelation

For a thorough treatment of how revelation works and a rundown on prophecy, read this article.

  1. 26 ⌊Therefore what should you do⌋, brothers? Whenever you come together, each one of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. All things must be done for edification. 1 Corinthians 14:26 (LEB)
  2. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and the others evaluate. 30 And if something is revealed to another who is seated, the first must be silent. 31 For you are all able to prophesy ⌊in turn⌋, in order that all may learn and all may be encouraged, 32 and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. 33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. 1 Corinthians 14:29–33a (LEB)

A Prophecy

prophecy

  1. 16 And Yahweh said to Moses, “Gather for me seventy men from the elders of Israel whom you know are elders of the people and their officials; take them to the tent of assembly, and they will stand there with you. 17 I will come down and speak with you there; I will take away from the spirit that is on you, and I will place it on them; and they will bear the burdens of the people with you; you will not bear it alone.
    ...
    24 So Moses went out, and he spoke the words of Yahweh to the people, and he gathered together seventy men from the elders of the people, and he ⌊made them stand⌋ all around the tent. 25 Then Yahweh went down in the cloud and spoke to him, and he took away the spirit that was on him, and he ⌊put it⌋ on the seventy elders. And as soon as the spirit was resting on them they prophesied, but they did not do it again. 26 But two men were left in the camp; the name of one was Eldad, and the name of the second was Medad, and the spirit rested on them; they were among those who were written down, but they did not go out to the tent, so they prophesied in the camp. 27 So a boy ran and told Moses and said, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” 28 And Joshua son of Nun, the assistant of Moses from time of his youth, answered, “Moses, my lord, stop them.” 29 But Moses said to him, “Are you jealous for my sake? Would that he give all Yahweh’s people prophets, that Yahweh put his spirit on them!” 30 Then Moses and the elders of Israel were gathered to the camp. Numbers 11:16–17 & 24–30 (LEB)
  2. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and the others evaluate. 30 And if something is revealed to another who is seated, the first must be silent. 31 For you are all able to prophesy ⌊in turn⌋, in order that all may learn and all may be encouraged, 32 and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. 33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. 1 Corinthians 14:29–33a (LEB)
  3. 28 And it will happen afterward thus: I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy,and your elders will dream dreams; your young men shall see visions.29 And also on the male slaves and on the female slaves, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. Joel 2:28–29 (LEB)
