My brother in law passed to me the circular they passed out where he went to church with my sister. It seems that the place where they go, they want to meet and live as family. Item one: A new identity, 1 John 3:1 and Ephesians 2:19, ["...1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not...] ["...19Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;...]. Item two: A place where you are a member. Romans 15:7, ["...7Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God...]. Item three: A place to be connected. Romans 12:4-5, ["...4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another...]. And finally, Item four: A new pursose. Ephesians 2:21-22, ["..21In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit...] It continues to say that we are to celebrates each other's Joys, carry each other's Burdens, encourage One Another and finally, help T______/ B_________. I couldn't figure out the last part, it was fill in the blank. Can you figure what it may be? And I thought this would be a good summary of a group who care for each other should do! I don't why the Lord would want to remind us of this things. This things we've heard to be doing all the time! Thank you for viewing this blog. What do you think about this church that my brother-in-law attends with my sister?... Be Blessed. Amen. thbg
Now we examined two churches to go to, the belated and the super belated, now which one would you go to...? Now it make a difference whose instruction you take. Do not be mocked, bad company ruins good character! I did not think what -where this was all this going! But there's a difference in whom will go to heaven and who will not! I hope you make the right choice, while there's some time left to do that!...
Now it is clear that the church that does not listen to God voice will have havoc and trouble. God says that if we have fellowship with him, we have fellowship with each other. We turn there,
["...1 John 1:3 (Whole Chapter)
That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
1 John 1:6 (Whole Chapter)
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
1 John 1:7 (Whole Chapter)
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin...]
Now God will bring the fellowship with each other if we walk in the light, with Jesus and the truth. But if we don't walk in the truth, God will bring demons to have one tear each other up. Havoc just goes hand in hand with where lies nest and peace where the truth is preached and blessings...
thbg I would like to attend a church with the 4 principles where your bro-in-law and sister worship because it reflects the church I attend.
Church is not a club, but a body of believers who support, love, care and pray for one another 24/7. There is a difference between blogging and going to church though.. there is face to face contact -when all the "magic" of fellowship takes place!
thbg I recomment you attend your bro-in-law and sister's church if you are not attending one like that.
Thank you 'ptl2008' for you kind observation on the distiction of churches and between church and blogging. The only problem is that I can't go physically to Malasia and strengthen a brother and be back for lunch in Texas with my income or my little life. I really don't know how many friends I have in the far reaches, but I sense some here more than few to dip on what we say about Christ. I go to church but, the world is where my mind is set and the souls who live there that need Christ...
Thanks for you comment and recomendation. I would visit his church some time in the future...
At church the Pastor speaks, in blogging I try to let in as many, on what Christ is saying...
I was side-tracked with 'thelogy' issues and the sum of the matter is that I couldn't accomplish a single thing. And that is good, because no one should listen to 'theologian' me, but to glorious, wisdom topped God, who knows the end from the beginning. If we listen to God's voice we will never have trouble. We will have opposers, but peace with God and rewards for sactifying him and his word in our heart. If I can accomplish anything tonight it will be glorious if you open you bible, turn the page, and call God for the answers you seek...
I promise, and test it for yourself, taste and see that the Lord God is good and wants to do you and your loved one good...Call on him today or tonight!...
Thank you 'standingalone1229' for post you blog on that issue or issue. I said. I'll saying again, you have the gift of timing, and it was time to clarify that issue in many people minds misled by, well...God is whom we should listen to. I remember that song and Psalm that says, "My eyes upon the Lord, continually are set, for is he who will take my feet out of the net..."
You know let remember something here,
["...Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
Lean not on your own understanding,
In all things acknowledge him,
And he will set your paths straight...]
Thanks dear sister "standingalone1229" for your kind fellowship. I just have this last though. Your taking care of this little girl "Amy" and feeding her and guirding yourself to serve her need. Now those things do no go unnoticed before the Lord and his holy angels in heaven and certainly it was not unnotice in my sight and I though that was noble of you. That is my last thought. Take and may God bless everyone. Amen.
