Spiritual status of the Congregation and the Church #100.5
"Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith." Proverbs 15:17
Everyone needs to focus on the kingdom and the righteousness of God which we are suppose to be seeking first .
Because Jesus said to do that.
If you believe in Jesus then that is the first thing you should be doing and seen doing.
Coming together to seek that kingdom seems to be an essential element of seeking that kingdom of God at hand.
The world and the devil wants to divide the flock of God because that gives them power and God also wants to divide the goats from the sheep.
One way the world wants to divide you is to get you to gather around the world's poles and pulpits of pride.
This week's radio broadcast will focus on the Spiritual status of the Congregation and the Church.
As usual we will reveal perspectives you will not hear in the modern Church that has brought the people back to the bondage of Egypt where you and the Church are entangled in the world again.
If we get far enough into this critical topic we will discuss the difference between usurpation and self destruction.
[See Schedule below]
Are you confessing Christ or merely giving him lip service?
If you do not come together to declare with word and deed that you love Christ as Lord seeking His kingdom then you are not confessing him.
The word translated confess 17 times in the testament is from homologeo which is two words. One is Logos which means "word" and the other part is homou which is the genitive case of homos and is defined as:
1) together: of persons assembled together
So you are not really "confessing" Jesus unless you gather together in his Character.
Is this why Jesus says:
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
What does that look like?
Song of Solomon 1:2 "... thy love is better than wine."
Does it look like what Ambrose did for the Church of Constantine when he introduced the Nicene Creed and asked the Roman Senate to exile anyone who did not accept it according to his interpretation?
If Jesus and God are together in unity then to do anything in the name of Yeshua is to do it in love because :
"... God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."
The kingdom of God is the right to be ruled by God. And God is ruling in us and we are ruled by him when we love others as He loved us.
Are we to write on the hearts and minds of others or is that the province of God?
What does God's love look like?
Is it full of mercy and patience?
Proverbs 12:28 "You cannot take on the right to be ruled by God unless you take righteousness on by the spirit first."
So the journey to the kingdom and the righteousness of God is first a spiritual one.
The world will test of our truth of our righteousness to see if it is of God or of the flesh. Is it of his Holy Spirit or of another spirit.
What comes from the flesh may be swept away by the world and the flesh.
What God has given no man can take away.
Where do we test if our love is of the flesh or of God...
"No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit." 1 John 4:12
The right to be ruled by God requires that you take on the responsibility of being God's government of the people, by the people and for the people in the love and name of Christ.
That is a government compelled by love, the love of God for you and for each other.
Does God give us everything we want?
Then neither should we give others everything they want or think they need...
" Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife." Romans 13:10
"... love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame." Song of Solomon 8:6
"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God." 1 John 4:7
Preaching the Kingdom of God
and His righteousness On the Air
I also sent them the article as it appeared in the Kingdom Newsletter.
Are Christians idiots or are they trapped in a false doctrine that has been creeping into their thinking for hundreds of years?
The article Are Christians Idiots went out today and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
Find out why these responses come back saying:
"Dear brother, this was excellent and so very timely."
"Then I saw your article posted on Newswithviews.com. What a confirmation!"
" Good to see you're back, especially with an outstanding article ... I'm going to use it to challenge the 200 evangelical leader..."
"your article today is a superb concise summary of the whole shebang. It distills everything to its basic essence. I love it."
"Amen! Brother...well stated!"
Are Christians Idiots?
Was Acts 4:13 saying that Peter and John were "unlearned and ignorant"?
Was the original text telling us something very different?
Was there something unique about the early Christians which Modern Christians have forgotten?
When Jesus was preaching the Kingdom of God at hand He talked about a mustard seed that could grow by faith into a mighty tree providing life and shelter for all who seek its branches. http://www.hisholychurch.org/network/fractal.php
