To our "Bet", i.e. "house", belongs not only that we are a congregation that holds services as a community, but also that there is a large area extending to it in which one can live together. Up to now we are still an online church, but if we one day, with the grace of God, manage to become a presence church, a residential house (similar to a monastery) should be attached to the worship house. It is split into two different variants:
Variant I (men's residential house/women's residential house): abstinent individual life as in Catholic monasteries for all those who want to concentrate completely and without distraction on God and live only for Him.
Variant II (family home): Families with and without children (e.g. married couples) can live here and work together for God and, despite their seclusion behind monastery walls, still lead a normal married life and also raise their children completely focused on God.
In both variants a dress code (e.g. of linen, as it is often written in Revelation or elsewhere in the Bible, how holy this material is) (with the permitted colours white, dove blue, green, beige) to dress accordingly "holy" and chastely for the eyes of others, so that one does not fall prey to the worldly, but precisely by living more secludedly here, and expressing this also through clothing and posture and behavior, in order to die to the earthly and surrender completely to the heavenly and in preparation for the entry into the Heavenly City, the New Jerusalem!
Only within the I. Variation there is a separation of the sexes, in order to be able to lead a really celibate, secluded life. For this purpose, 3 building parts will be constructed to build a "women's house", a "men's house" and a "family house". If relationships do arise between the women's and men's houses, these couples can then move into the family house. In the event of any relationships arising, however, the important principle in our shared home is: "No intimacies before marriage". This may be misinterpreted as paternalism, but it must be accepted with understanding in our vision of turning away completely from the earthly and godless and orienting ourselves towards the New Jerusalem.
Of course, animals will also be part of our community home. They will not be pets, but animals that will live outside in stables (horses, cows, sheep, pigs, chickens), or pets in the sense of small animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits and so on. So it will be more or less like a "monastic farm" here.
We will celebrate church services together with communion (grape juice and bread) and praise music*. Work is done in the garden or other things and a common income is earned. Principle: "All belongs to all", like with the first disciples of YAHUSHUA, like a big family.
We want to live "self-sufficient" (self-sufficient) and provide for ourselves through agricultural work or through God. The above mentioned animals of our "farm" are of course not considered as farm animals (i.e. the milk of the cow belongs to the cow children, the eggs of the hen stay with her and are not given to people etc.!), but have just as much a right to live and be happy as everything in God's creation and are just there and live happily to themselves.
Of course, a vegan and frutarian way of life is taken care of here, i.e. that besides the diet, of course the clothes have to be made of animal- and environmentally friendly materials!
* In our congregation there is no congregation band or anything like that, but we ourselves are the musicians who will sing for God once the SotW (the spirit of the world) has left us and we will sing and play for God anew strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Since we plan to include animals and plants (nature) in our church and they should also be part of our church services, loud sounds and the like would probably not be for sensitive animal ears. From our side a special form of music will be offered here.
