“So we, [being] many, are one body in Christ, and
every one members one of another.”
Brothers and Sisters when Jesus came and became the Sacrifice, The Lamb Of God, He Died for the Whole World, even though He was sent to the House Of Israel First, but was rejected.
“23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast [it] to dogs. 27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
“Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?”
“Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.”
Because of this Rejection, the rest of the World was given the Opportunity to Receive Jesus As The Christ being saved from our sins. We have been Grafted Into Gods Divine Plan, being witnesses to the World.
“16 For if the firstfruit [be] holy, the lump [is] also [holy]: and if the root [be] holy, so [are] the branches. 17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.”
Now I say all of this to bring understanding that WE Are To BE ONE BODY! In Jesus there is NO Baptist, NO Methodist, NO Catholic, NO Mormons, NO Seventh Day Adventist, NO Presbyterian, NO Full Gospel, NO… NO… NO…, those of you who uphold such things walk not according to Gods Will, but walk according to the Flesh and to the Anti-Christ Spirit! Show me any of these in God’s Holy Word and I’ll Repent!
Because of these things The Body is Splintered, Fractured and Functions At Low Capacity.
The Root is made up of several sins. A small list of these are Pride, Un-Forgiveness, Arrogance, Self-Righteousness, Ungodliness, Self-Willed, the Worst of these is Pride! You Walk in these Sins and say you are The Body, liars all! You Pick and Choose what you will do or will not do and then Justify it by others in like standing.
“For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
2 Corinthians 10:12
The Scriptures tell us Not to Forsake The Assembly of Fellow Believers, there are reasons for this that deals with Your Faith, Your Walk and Your Relationship With Jesus. Many, many churches have Disassembled the Governing Head of the Church, which is, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers. These five Offices were set by Jesus and Him Alone. They were to make sure that The Will Of Jesus was carried out here on earth. Between Satan and Man three of these Offices are all but gone and are Rejected by most, not accepted in today’s times, they say their season “has past and is no more”. They are three most important of all of the Offices, which is the Apostle, Prophet and Evangelist. In two of these, the very Foundation of our Faith rides upon, the Apostle and Prophet, while the third is the Out Reach Arm of The Church.
“7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
“20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone]; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
Because of this we are Not The Body that Jesus intended, what He desired. But instead have become Salt that has lost its Savor.
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
The Body is wounded and is not fighting against the enemy of our Faith. We are losing our Effectiveness to bring people to a Holy God, a Just God, and a Righteous God!
The Body is to be concerning one another. We are to Lift Up The Body above its circumstances, to be in One Accord.
“7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all [men], especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”
We, The Body, are to Pray, Communicate, and Have Fellowship always. In doing this, we fight against the enemy, including, even our own Flesh and Satan. When we ignore to do these things we are opening doors for Satan to walk through and to control a Believers Life through circumstances. If you have something against a Brother or Sister, the Scriptures are clear that before we are to Honor Jesus, we must fix the issue at hand, we must be quick in doing so, if not it festers and becomes a wound that cannot be healed properly.
“Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.”
“Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.”
Brothers and Sisters we have a Responsibility to each other, to help each other walk through this world to Glorify Jesus. If we fail, ignoring to do this, then we bring No Glory To Jesus, but instead glorify Our Flesh and Satan. I have ministered thousands of messages to thousands of people that Jesus wanted me to, but very few do I ever hear from. Very few take the Time, the Effort to do what Scriptures tells us to do; instead you make up your excuses, praise Jesus and think you are Godly!
It is past time for us to be The Body that Jesus intended us to be. We need to stop our moaning and groaning, our likes and dislikes; people need to stop the excuses, needing to put emotions aside and Stand Up and be The Body! There should be No Walls, No differing Religious Beliefs, No Distance that should separate us. There is a Scripture that tells us that basically nothing can separate us from the Love Of God, but, as The Holy Spirit has taught, there is one thing… Mans Will can separate you from Gods Love.
“37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
There is absolutely nothing in this World that can Separate Us From Gods Love, but, YOU CAN. Now the icing on the cake you might say. If You Love God, then you Must Keep His Word, His Commandments Doing them without ceasing until the end.
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
My Brothers and Sisters In Jesus we must put away our Wills, our Desires and do The Will of Jesus NO MATTER THE COST! The World is dying, and is looking for a Savior, and we are the Books that they are reading. There was a survey given to the younger generation asking them why they did not go to church. Their answer was that their encounters with the people of churches were hypocrites, liars, speaking a good talk but not walking the walk. James says that we must not only Speak the Truth, but must also Walk The Truth out in our lives.
“22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth [therein], he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
As always, Your Choice!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
