Ezekiel 40:4 And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall shew thee; for to the intent that I might shew them unto thee art thou brought hither: declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.
The liberation of the church from its present state of decay is not in the hands of any Christian body such as the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) or Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN). No, it is in the hands of the living God! If it is left in the hands of such Christian bodies, it will be an ecumenical gathering of crowd. This is a spiritual thing. God is doing it Himself.
In our day, we see the Lord making appearances to people, taking people to heaven and to hell, and reiterating this scriptural truth so that when these ones go and see and hear divine eternal truth, they come back and relay their testimonies to us. When we hear their testimonies, we see the scriptures come alive. All ambiguity vanishes, light and understanding is given to the sons of men.
He also raised men that can use these divine revelations and bring scriptures together and rightly divide the word of truth, so that through scriptures and through divine revelations you can understand the actual mind of God and have right interpretation of scriptural truth. God is doing the work Himself and He will do more. What is God doing? Is it to unite the physical body? No! the church is not a physical organization. It is a spiritual organization.
What God is doing now will only affect a few in various denominations. The Lord will cause this understanding to go into various denominations and a remnant among them shall understand and these remnants from various denominations will unite to be the true church of the living God.
Now that this knowledge is coming to you, accept it. It is the working of God in our time. Don’t expect that your church will change as a whole body. If the miracle happens that way, we praise God, but expect that it is individuals among them that will be used to effect the change.
The Jews did not accept Christ as a nation, but individuals among them accepted the gospel of faith and became children of God by faith. Your church may not accept this truth as a corporate body to come to this Christian agreement in doctrines, truth and practice of the faith once delivered to all the saints. Your church may still hold to their traditions but you as an individual who responds to the faith in Christ, spread this truth and others will respond in various places. We who have responded shall be the remnants that the Lord is gathering for Himself before He comes.
Thought for the day:
Receive the truth and share it in your denomination.
Song for the day:
Lift Jesus higher…..lift Him high for the world to see…..
Bible reading for the day:
Psalm 28-30; Acts 21:1-14
