Church | Two are Better than One

Church | Two are Better than One

April 23, 2019

There are four major aspects where God wants the church to be together:

- In God's work
- In our fall or failures
- In our discouragements
- When we are attacked 

Snow flakes are very frail little things, but if you get enough of them together, they can strop traffic. This is the power of unity. Read the rest of this entry »

Church | One but Many

Church | One but Many

April 23, 2019

Many times non-Christians ask us about how we have one Bible, one God but why are there different churches, ministries and denomination? We need to understand the diversity the Word of God is talking about.

- Verses 4 to 13: One Body
- Verses 14 to 20: Many Members
- Verse 21: Inter-dependency (we need each other)
- Verses 22-25: Same Honor & Care
- Verse 26: Participating & Sharing Read the rest of this entry »

The term Church was first introduced in the Bible by our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

The word 'church' in the New Testament is translated from the Greek word 'ekklesia' which comes from two words 'ek' meaning 'out' and 'kaleo' meaning to 'call.' An ekklesia means "called out". Read the rest of this entry »

Church | Bind and Loose

April 23, 2019

Here are a highlight of the couple of things we need to do as a church when we come together in prayer:

- Bind hatred and loose love
- Bind discord (disagreement/conflict) and loose harmony
- Bind sin and habits that hold people and loose salvation
- Bind false teaching and loose sound doctrine
- Bind demon of sickness and loose healing
- Bind spirit of poverty and debt and loose scriptural blessings

Church | Authority of the Church

Church | Authority of the Church

April 23, 2019

Remember we are dealing with the power of darkness.  Satan and his company.  He has power.  His power is nothing in front of God.  But as a human, he can overpower us if we are not prepared. 

Jesus, before His crucifixion realized the importance of laying the foundation for the church.  He visualized church among His disciples.  He called His disciples and gave them authority. Read the rest of this entry »

Church | Ark of Protection

Church | Ark of Protection

April 23, 2019

The ark that was built by Noah, the ark that protected Noah and his family when the whole earth was destroyed very well resembles the church in the New Testament. I strongly believe there is more than enough evidence that the ark of the Old Testament is the church of the New Testament.

- Noah's ark separated the godly from the ungodly, the church is the threshing floor where the wheat is separated form the chaff Read the rest of this entry »
