Church, You Don’t Know Who You Are
Dear Church--Brothers and Sisters, so many of you are hurting because you feel isolated and alone, cut off because church services have been banned in your location, or fearful because of the turmoil we are facing in the world.
But I say to you, Arise! Arise and be who you are really called to be!
I say to you: the Church is not a building. You’ve heard that before, but my brothers and sisters—if you consider yourself part of The Church of Jesus Christ, you are mistaken. You are not the church!
You have heard it said that in Mathew 16:18, Jesus said, “upon this rock, I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.”
My brothers and sisters, Jesus did not say this! He said, “upon this rock, I will build my ekklesia, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.”
Oh, beloved of God, I am not just splitting...
