The topic of a relationship with Christ and His Church should be one of the most fascinating topics and must produce a deep certainty of joy and happiness in all of Christianity.
Ephesians 5:26-27 "to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless."
The biggest revelation in respect to this ministry was given by the Holy Spirit to the Apostle Paul, when he spoke about the relationship of Christ with His church... Relationship and ministry that manifested in the Calvary through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ (from that moment and through faith), people of every nation through repentance and recognizing a resurrected Jesus as their Lord and Savior and find in His blood the forgiveness of His transgressions and sins. Enter through the grace of the Church of Christ and in the people, lineage of God the Father! Amen!
Esther and Mephibosheth amongst other beautiful figures of the Church, because they illustrate as people without opportunity, without capacity to qualify the people who did not apply to any of the social standards of the time period. Excluded, forgotten and ignored without apparent value, one day jumped from anonymity to be rebuilt as people with a name and relevance. That is the essence for us.
1 Corinthians 1:26-28 "Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are."
And not only that but it also constitutes in Kings and High Priests for His Glory.
1 Peter 2:9 "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."
The church has its identity clear in these transcendental times, militant and will be a remnant church. This church will have authority and govern spiritually and will minister the world through this new Priesthood.
Do you identify with this church? That is our biggest desire and prayer!
