Word for Today:
The CHURCH of Jesus Christ.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS).
“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it…” ( Matthew 16:18-19).
The CHURCH is not the building as many Christians have tried to reduce the church to nowadays, although the building is important to the church. The church of God is the congregation of the saints. Every true born again Christian is a part of the church at all times, not only on Sundays.
When the head of the church, Jesus Christ first used the word church in our memory verse, it was with reference to the person of Peter: “That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”. Jesus added:
“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19)
Unfortunately, spiritual ignorance has paralysed the thinking of many Christians that ‘seeing’, they can’t see and ‘hearing’, they can’t hear. How on earth can the head of the church ( Jesus Christ), be involved in a church activity, and the building will collapse and kill many people, like what happened in well known ‘churches’ in Lagos and Akwa Ibom states( both in Nigeria), in recent years? If Jesus Christ was involved, where was He when the building was collapsing? Why is it that Jesus Christ was no longer the head of all principalities and powers (Colossians 2:10), in those churches? The interesting thing is that many people are still rushing to those churches for “healing” and for solutions to their problems. God have mercy. Please, beware of fake churches. The kingdom of God is not meat and drink.
Brethren, light and darkness are not friends. When Jesus Christ is involved in something, what you can find there is GRACE and MERCY. Not collapse buildings and killing of people. It’s the devil that kills and destroys (John 10:10), whereas Jesus is for abundance of life.
You can choose to remain in ignorance and be exploited if you want. It’s entirely your choice. At least you have the opportunity to know the truth and be free ( John 8:32).
Be knowledgeable. Be wise. Be enlightened. Stay connected to JESUS, the Word of God.
Keep your thoughts & mind positive.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Be compassionate, merciful and kind to one another.
Thank you Father for your church and for giving me the opportunity to sit on your right side along with Jesus Christ far above all principalities and powers. We bless your holy name. Amen.
Blood of Jesus. Blood of Jesus.
Thank you Jesus for being the head of the church. You are without blemish.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
