It's past time for us to resolve a thing or two about the capital C, CHURCH in America!
As my Sunday School teacher would say: “sin is serious business" and I would add repentance is required of any and all believers as the Lord’s judgement of his children, may be delayed but never denied, because, in all likelihood the devil did not make us do or not do a thing!
Not doing a commanded thing is disobedience!
Often, but not always, we suffer because we are a stiff neck people, not willing to do or not do, what thus says the Lord.
Do not fear, is a direct command to the children of the most high, so let’s get ready to simply cross the street, today, as he still has the whole world in his most mighty and able hands.
And by the way, the Bride of Christ has a super special place in his hands. We should have expected the gates of hades to come against the Bride, but, here we are caught off guard, so let’s resolve to pray for the health and welfare of the local physical church and body, as a whole.
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 KJV
Let’s be faithful to march around the Bride of Christ in Prayer and Protest, as if the gates of hades were coming against her, in the right here and the right now.
This is one way, we can all reoccupy church right now.
She will prevail.
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Ephesians 5:25-27 KJV
