Greetings!


The Current Church Systems Will Fall!
 
This is quite shocking and may even sound preposterous to some of you.
  
In the early hours of Friday February 10th (2012), the Lord spoke to me concerning the current state of the Church. I don't mean I heard an audible voice but I did hear His voice in my mind.
  
First of all He told me He would use stronger words than I would in talking to the divided, separate "churches." This was in response to my asking Him if I was too strong in my views on the current church systems. Then He said this...
 
"The divided will not survive. The united will thrive."
 
Did you get that? He said the current divided, separated churches would NOT survive. This ties in with the word I originally received on the subject, recorded in a video on the website at, www.OneChristianChurch.org 
 
Please look at it if you haven't done so already.
 
Even though I had received the earlier word recorded in the video about dead branches being cut off from the vine, I was still a little disturbed at how strong He sounded when He said the divided will not survive. There was a note of finality in it, as though we had gone beyond the point of no return. The period of grace was over. That's the impression I got.
 
Scriptures came to mind to confirm what was said.
 
 "And if a kingdom is divided and rebelling against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided - split into factions and rebelling against itself, that house will not be able to stand." Mark 3:24-25 AMP
 
 "Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear - obvious: they are immorality, impurity, indecency; idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions), sects with peculiar opinions, (heresies)... I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." Galatians 5:19-21 AMP (emphasis mine).

 

Now by placing emphasis on some these practices I don't mean to minimize the ones that aren't underlined. What I want to make clear today is this. Division, a party spirit, factions, etc. are tied in with all these other things that identify the people WHO WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

 

This is a serious and must be a warning to us all. If we continue to perpetuate denominationalism, division and independence in all its forms, we are in danger of being cut off from the purposes of God. God is calling us to be one Body!

   

I know I'm sounding alarmist but I'm doing it intentionally. The alarm must be sounded! Here's the bottom line and please take it seriously.

 

A DIVIDED HOUSE WILL NOT STAND.

 

THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO PRACTICE SUCH THINGS WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

 

A UNITED CHURCH WITH JESUS AS HEAD, IN EVERY LOCALITY WILL THRIVE. IT'S INEVITABLE!

 

This, I believe, is a word for us all. Here is the question we are being asked:

 

Who is on the LORD'S side? (Exodus 32:26)

Do we want to be supporting and propping something up that cannot stand, or do we want to be on the LORD'S side, doing His will without equivocation?

 

Now is the time to take a stand.

God is Building His Church People

By Bob Goyer

 

God is the Master Architect.

 

He has drawn the plans for the Body, the Church, the temple of the Holy Spirit, the dwelling place of God... His building. He is not drawing up the plans that are dependent on how we go. The blueprint of Jesus' Body was drawn up long ago. And now He is building His church. He is framing the Church and fitting it together according to His blueprint.

 

"In whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In whom you also are being built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit." (Ephesians 2:21-22)
 

Man cannot build it. Man doesn't even know what the plans look like. John the beloved had some insight. But even what he saw he couldn't describe fully. He could only relate to it according to what he knew.

Each one of us is a living stone that the Master Architect has designed to be put in the right place, in order to build the Church. Our responsibility is to allow Him to form us so we can be put in the right place. But, He won't place us until we are ready.

 

"You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:5)

 

Why do you think the church is so fixated on physical buildings and organized systems? The reason is because it's a counterfeit way that the enemy has encouraged and supported. He doesn't want the real thing. As long as man is building the Church, Satan is OK with that.

 

The early church did not have Christian books, tapes, conferences, TV, radio, etc., in order to know how to build the Church. What they did have that trumps anything modern man can devise, is the person of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is our teacher and guide. If we would simply allow the Holy Spirit to do His work, the Church would be built. Man is his own worst enemy. Man has complicated something that is actually very easy.

 

God has not stopped building His church. However, the building process would have progressed a lot further if man would just get out of the way.

 

"... He who started a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)

 

In some ways I think it would be much better if all Christians would just stop what they are doing. Lock up all the books, tapes, etc., stop going to conferences, stop listening to what man has to say, wait on the Lord and seek to be drawn into His presence... only. If each Christian would simply lay down their lives, yield to the Holy Spirit, repent of pride and selfishness and exalt Jesus, we would see a demonstration of just how He would build the Church.

 

Currently, we see the result of man interfering with the building process. The Body of Christ is largely dysfunctional and only slightly influential in world events. It's focused more on building programs than lost souls. You would think with all the money, time and effort being poured into buildings, conferences, satellite TV programs reaching the world etc, that the Church would be much further along than it is, in the building process. I submit that things I mentioned are actually part of the problem.

 

Just imagine with me for a minute. Imagine if all churches closed their doors, all Christian TV and radio stations shut down, and all books and CD's were thrown away. Imagine that each believer waited on the Lord, praying, worshipping Jesus Christ and allowing Him to take over the building process. Personally, I think we'd see a revival like none other.

 

I was saved in the early 70's as the Charismatic Movement was picking up momentum. For over 20 years I was deeply involved in church leadership. Later, I transitioned from the Charismatic to the Prophetic Movement. I appreciate what happened during those years and I'm thankful to the Lord for what I learned and experienced. As good as it was though, as far as I'm concerned, it was mostly about building man's kingdom and not building the Body of Christ.

 

My commitment now is to allow the Lord to do the building instead of me. I'm committed to waiting on Him verses trying to do it my own way, or depending on man.

New Look Website  www.OneChristianChurch.org     
       
The website address has changed to the above. Along with the change of address are a number of changes to the site. If you are serious about being a part of God's re-formed Church, then please check the site out thoroughly and read everything on it. There are a number of articles which are God's word for us now. Take the time. Its theme and content is what we believe the Lord is currently wanting to emphasize to those who are listening. Decide to be a part of it and pass this newsletter on to others. There's a link at the bottom of this page to enable you to do that. 
 
Please also pass the website address on to others. Its content is what some might call "present truth." In other words, it's what God is saying to His people now.  
 
Anne Elmer Go to the website and read Anne Elmer's article, "THE ENEMY CAPTURED THE CHURCH." Anne is the best-selling author of the book, "Transported by the Lion of Judah" and has kindly agreed to her article being re-published there. (Thanks Anne for agreeing to share this word with us!).
 
As indicated in the articles in this newsletter and on the website, we believe God is very serious about what He intends His true Church to be in the earth now. The status quo will not do. Nor will He tolerate any longer our arrogance and conceit by thinking we can build HIS Church. His new, re-formed Church will be the vehicle he will use to usher in His Kingdom purposes in the earth. This we believe, is the "new thing" He promised in Isaiah 43:18-19. 
 
Finally, we are asking people to partner with us in this glorious work. The word must be sent out as a preparation for the coming of the Lord to His Church in these last days. Just like John The Baptist did in preparing the way of the Lord the first time, so we are called to prepare the way of the Lord in these last days. This is the spirit of Elijah at work as prophesied in Malachi 4:5-6. You and I are called to work together as a part of this Elijah Company fulfilling our calling together. An opportunity is given to you on the site.
