Firstly I rightfully do not endorse Christians trying to make money of the gospel, asking for money or any of the supposedly Christian adds, for the Bibles, books, tapes listed here for sale too.. Jesus said as you freely received so freely give. Greedy Hirelings do not do this. http://groups.msn.com/AFOLLOWEROFCHRIST/advrt.msnw

1: Bible verse for the week
"According to thy manifold mercies, thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies" (Nehemiah 9:27).
2: Bible study for the week
Humbleness, meekness, dependancy on God are some  of the essential aspect of a qualitative servant of God.
 
1 John 4:19 We love Him ( Jesus) because He first loved us.
(Psa 34:18 KJV)  The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
 
(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
 
(Isa 57:15 KJV)  For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
 
(Isa 66:2 KJV)  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
 
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
 
"According to thy manifold mercies, thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies" (Nehemiah 9:27).
 
(1 Cor 3:6 KJV)  I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7   So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour .9   For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. 10  According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.11   For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
 
(Col 1:12 KJV)  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20  And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22  In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
 
(Rev 4:10 KJV)  The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11  Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. 5:1  And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2  And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3  And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4  And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5  And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 6  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.  7  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 8  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. 11  And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12  Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.  3  And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 14  And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

(Eph 3:8 KJV)  Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
 
(Eph 5:23 KJV)  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
 
(Col 1:18 KJV)  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
 
(Col 2:10 KJV)  And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
 
(Eph 4:4 KJV)  There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5  One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 7  But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9  (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10  He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
 
(Psa 37:4 KJV)  Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5  Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 6  And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.7  Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
 
(Psa 37:8 KJV)  Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
 
(Psa 37:9 KJV)  For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. 10  For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. 11  But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
 
(Psa 37:16 KJV)  A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17   For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
 
(Psa 37:18 KJV)  The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. 19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
 
(Psa 37:20 KJV)  But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.  21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous showeth mercy, and giveth. 22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
 
(Psa 37:23 KJV)  The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. 25  I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. 27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. 28   For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. 29  The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
 
(Psa 37:34 KJV)  Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. 35  I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. 36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
 
(Psa 37:37 KJV)  Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. 38  But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. 39  But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. 40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
 
(Psa 41:4 KJV)  I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.
 
(Psa 86:3 KJV)  Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.
 
(Psa 119:58 KJV)  I entreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.
 
(Psa 119:132 KJV)  Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
 
(Psa 56:1 KJV)  Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
 
(Psa 57:1 KJV)  Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
 
(Psa 41:10 KJV)  But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.
 
(Luke 18:13 KJV)  And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
 
How easy it is to be forgetful of what we really are and  of God himself. when things go really well, our way , we so easily do forget about God and the fact he saved us in while we were sinners.
 
(Rom 5:8 KJV)  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 
(Rom 5:9 KJV)  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
 
(Rom 5:10 KJV)  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
 
(Rom 5:11 KJV)  And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
 
(Rom 5:12 KJV)  Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
 
(Rom 5:13 KJV)  (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
 
(Rom 5:14 KJV)  Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
 
(Rom 5:15 KJV)  But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
 
so
 
(Deu 9:4 KJV)  Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the LORD hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee.
 
(Deu 9:5 KJV)  Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
 
(Deu 9:6 KJV)  Understand therefore, that the LORD thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a stiffnecked people.
 
(Heb 8:12 KJV)  For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
 
(Psa 67:1 KJV)  God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
3: Tips on praying for the week.
   
     The value of having a prayer partner also .
(Luke 9:28 KJV)  And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
 
Jesus did not always pray alone, he set an example of taking others to pray with him too and do look now at how this good habit that Jesus encouraged, was continued even by Peter and John.. 
 
(Acts 3:1 KJV)  Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.
 
(Acts 8:14 KJV)  Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:15   Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
 
(Mat 6:5 KJV)  And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.6  But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7  But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 9  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10  Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11  Give us this day our daily bread. 12  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14  For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Note this also when somone genuinely repents and ask for forgivness, you are obligated to forgive them, and not hold their past sisn agains them.
 
To me this suggested pattern of praying, our father, in the plural, is also important to note, for to me, it implies the importance of also having a prayer partner. Preferably that partner could be our Christian spouse, but that is not always the case or possible, so we do instead pray with someone else..
 
(Mat 18:19 KJV)  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
 
(Luke 10:1 KJV)  After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
 
(Mat 11:2 KJV)  Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, 3 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?
 
(Luke 19:29 KJV)  And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,30  Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.31  And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
 
(Acts 9:38 KJV)  And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.
 
(Eccl 4:9 KJV)  Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? 12   And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
 
(Mat 18:16 KJV)   that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
 
(2 Cor 13:1 KJV)   In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
 
(Acts 1:10 KJV)  And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11  Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
 
(1 Cor 14:29 KJV)  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
 
One of the values of having a prayer partner is you can be sure you had really prayed about the matter and passed it on to God rigthfully for his further actions.
 
Thank God that he also had said that if any 2 or 3 be agreed in my name, my will, it shall be done, for we all do know how hard it is to get people to agree on matter, never mind even a whole church.
 
I normally follow this pattern of prayer, I pray alone, privately in a closet, I next pray with a prayer partner if the issue is not resolved yet, and I next pray with the rest of the church group if the issue is still yet no resolved. So should we all.
 
(James 5:13 KJV)  Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:15   And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
 
(James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17  Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
4: Christian testimony for the week
(Eccl 7:1 KJV)  A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth. 2  It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.
 
While we as human beings tend to celebrate the day of our birth, God measures the end results as being more important..
 
(2 Cor 3:2 KJV)  Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: 3  Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.
 
And dow we do finish the Heavenly minded race that is set before us
 
(2 Tim 4:10 KJV)  For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.11  Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.
 
(1 Cor 9:24 KJV)  Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26  I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27  But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
 
(Eccl 7:8 KJV)  Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
 
Apostle Paul said (2 Tim 4:7 KJV)  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8   Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
 
may that have be said of each one of us..
 
One of the greatest personal testimony, and the best days of celebration  is not the day of one's earthly birth, but the day of one's spiritual birth but also how long we have walk with Christ
 
The personal visible testimony of aany Christian, Pastor also who has walked with the lord now for many years is a great achievement.. and worth noting as well not just one's birthday.

6: Difficult Bible Question answered for the week.
What is the church?
 
It is Married to and Made Perfect in Jesus alone and no other.
 
(2 Cor 11:2 KJV)  For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4   For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
 
(Eph 5:27 KJV)  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. (1 Pet 1:18 KJV)  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19  But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
 
"The church consists of all the Believers in Christ.  Sadly in most churches only up to about 30 percent of the people are really believers in Christ and thus the rest are not! When Jesus and the Apostles wrote about the true Church, they talked about the fathering, gathering of the true believers, and not the false ones, they talked about more about the the wise virgins and not the foolish ones. God is not building the church  empires, or the denominations, or the building programs, he is building up the individual persons, the  people of his one, true Church, the bride of Jesus Christ, the heavenly Jerusalem, and not the earthly Jerusalem.

1) The Church that Jesus is still building

He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 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. (Mat 16:15-18)

(Christ alone  is the rock, the chief cornerstone  that God is building his church upon, and not rather solely upon any of the people in it.)

Two other absolute essentials define the church. First, without question, is the fact that the church is built upon faith in God. Knowing that He is, and knowing who He is. Second, but of no less importance, the ever essential knowledge that it is God building the church that has his people. It is thus not an operation of man. The church exists and thrives by the will of God, and for the glory of God. The very definition of the word church: the called out, indicates that God is calling and we must answer in coming out, separating ourselves and fulfilling God’s will only for us.

1577. ekklesia, ek-klay-see'-ah; from a comp. of G1537 and a der. of G2564; a calling out, i.e. a popular meeting, espec. a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Chr. community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly, church.

Ultimately, the church will include all the saved from every generation, Old and New Testament Saints. The Bible has always used the term church to indicate that group of people that God has called out to be partakers of His heritage.

The Church - The Bride - The New Jerusalem

The Old Testament Church:

He brought them out, after that he had showed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years. This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear. This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: (Acts 7:36-38)

We all are called to be separate and holy:( From the World, the flesh, and the devil )

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Cor 6:14-18)

The New Testament example of Church activity:

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. (1 Pet 2:9-10)

And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. (Acts 2:44-47)

2) Purposes of God - To Eliminate Conflict

One of the great joys of Heaven will be the absence of conflict. Since the introduction of conflict by Satan, God has been actively and effectively restoring His order and rule over mankind. Mankind has suffered the plagues of being out of order and in constant turmoil. Towards the goal of restoring our peace, we find the principle of “Oneness” used by God. The devil separated us from God through sin. God is now calling us to be made “one” with Him. Such a bond of unity, that in the end, all that will be, will be God in all, and all in God.

Then cometh the end, when he (Jesus) shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death..... And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. (1 Cor 15:24-28)

This promise of hope is offered to all, but it is only those who have heard the voice of God calling, and have obeyed the command to be separate, to be clean, to be holy, to be obedient to all the instructions of God’s word. These people are the church, the called and chosen of God. These are the people of God that He is building. Eliminating conflict necessitates the elimination of the “will of man” in all things, including our thoughts on what the church is and should be. All defining factors must be solidly founded on the rock solid truth of the Word of God. To the willing heart God has made it easy to know all we need to know. “Line upon line, and precept upon precept” our knowledge grows, allowing us to literally feel the awesome solidity of that Rock we serve, that Rock upon which He, and we build our eternal lives together. Going further into His Word, this study will function to further solidify our scriptural definition of who will be “The Bride of Christ”. The Book of Revelation gives us a vision of this Bride, there she is to “behold” leaving us with no doubt as to what God is building. His signature of approval is plainly visible in each element of the building process. Behold with me what God has wrought.

Elements of the Kingdom

And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. (Rev. 21:9-27)

3) The Bride = The Church = The City

The Elements:

1) The Great Mountain = Jesus Christ

2) The 12 Foundations = The work of the Apostles

3) The Walls = The Church Fitly Framed

4) The City = The Habitation of God

The Rock = Jesus Christ = The Great Mountain

He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 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. (Mat 16:15-18)

The term peter used here refers to smalll, little rocks, but Christ is the Rock.

The prophet Daniel gives us a word concerning the final destruction of Satan's kingdom. He mentions that it is a stone that comes, destroys this kingdom, and then that stone becomes a great mountain. We know that that stone is of course Jesus.

Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image, became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. (Dan 2:34-35)

All truth is important, but the greatest truth is knowing who Jesus Christ is. Simply because without this essential knowledge, you have not built your house on the rock as is commanded in scripture.

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. (Mat 7:22-27)

We are building our eternity. Jesus used a natural illustration to show us the ultimate importance of the first step towards that eternity. Choosing the site ( Jesus Christ the Rock) upon which to place all of our trust, faith, hope, allegiance, and obedience. He is worthy of our all because in our desire to build our eternity, logically it stands to reason that we should build upon that One that is Eternal. That Great Mountain immovable! And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. (1 John 5:20) And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (John 17:3) Eternal life rests on the immovable truth that there is One True God. That God, manifested Himself in the flesh of Jesus Christ for the express purpose of purchasing Himself a Bride and that Bride cost the very precious blood of our Savior. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. (Acts 20:28) In whom (Jesus) we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: (Col 1:15) Against this truth the gates of hell cannot prevail! Upon this truth I built my eternity! (Upon the true Church, the true Belivers for not any local  Churches is  even  the true church.)

The Bible gives us vivid examples. One of the advantages of being a New Testament Saint is that we can also learn from the mistakes of the Old Testament church, Israel. One of the greatest mistakes they made was not remaining faithful to that Rock that saved them.

Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. (Deu 32:3-4)

But Jeshurun (another name for the nation of Israel) waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. (Deu 32:15-20)

Old Testament:

Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. (Exo 17:6)

New Testament:

Jesus answered and said unto her,If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. (John 4:10)

Take heed:

Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. (1 Cor 10:1-6)

I want to make it clear that it wasn't that literal rock that Moses smote that followed them. It was presence of God. Jesus Himself  amongst them working signs and wonders and miracles. Who then, manifested His presence as a Cloud by day and a Pillar of fire by night. That very same God robed Himself in flesh and came to His own...and they knew Him not... They rejected Him in the wilderness, and they again rejected Him as their Messiah. They forsook their Rock twice! Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. Matt. 21:42-43

The fruits thereof.... The fruits of knowing who Jesus is, and building your life according to His word places you on That Great Mountain.

Building Your Eternal Habitation

The Foundation = The Works of the Apostles

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; (Eph. 2:20)

It absolutely astonishes me how many supposed Bible scholars I come across who are clue less to the reality of Apostolic Authority. When I hear things like: I would rather take the word of Jesus over that of the Apostles, or: The Apostles were stubborn and ignorant, or all sorts of less than respectful remarks, I then know that person has no part in the Kingdom of heaven. The Bible very clearly teaches that our nextreceiving Apostolic Authority is equal to receiving God, and rejecting Apostolic Authority equals rejecting God. The true Apostles share the applicable truth as to what God wants them to share.

Jesus taught them:

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send, receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. (John 13:20)

I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. (John 17:6-8)

Jesus prayed for them:

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me ((through their word;)) (John 17:17-18, 20)

Jesus sent them:

Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. (John 20:21)

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Mat 28:19-20)

Definition: of the word sent: 649. apostello, ap-os-tel'-lo; from G575 and G4724; set apart, i.e. (by impl.) to send out (prop. on a mission) lit. or fig.:--put in, send (away, forth, out), set [at liberty]. (From which we get the word Apostle.)

They obeyed!!

"For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God ((which ye heard of us,)) ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe." (1 Th 2:13 KJV)

The New Testament Church unfailingly adhered to the teachings of the Apostles:

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. (Acts 2:41-42)

God Himself hand picked these men. God Himself taught and prepared these men. God Himself equipped, and authorized these men to do the work they did. God Himself qualified their work by resting His own precious Bride firmly in their hands. The whole purpose of their work was as Paul put it: .... for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. (2 Cor 11:2) A chaste virgin without spot or blemish. We have the epistles written to the churches. These were written to keep the church holy and faithful to God. These were written to keep the church without spot and without sin. These were written to keep the church strong in their love for their Bridegroom. These were written to keep their love strong for one another. God trusted them to equip us as brides to be. If God trusted them shouldn't we trust them.? Who are we to reject, or judge their fitness to literally prepare our souls to be married to God. Rejecting just one jot or tittle of whatever they instructed the church means you are a harlot, and not fit for the kingdom.

To reject the full council of God's Word, in the Bible, the words personally revealed by Jesus, the Apostle's , Prophets, teachers,  = Lawlessness (iniquity)

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. (Mat 7:22-27)

And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. (1 Pet 2:8)

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. (Mat 21:42-44)

In the above passage, the phrase: and whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken, in the original Greek carries the idea of going to Jesus in humility, and letting Him rebuild our lives, in contrast to the end of the passage which indicates being crushed and destroyed by the judgment of God. Let’s not repeat the example of the Israeli rejection, and heed in humility to the unmistakable direction given to us in God’s word. Let us continue steadfastly in the Apostles doctrines as taught in the Epistles, and let us be the chaste virgins waiting for our Bridegroom.

The Walls = The Lively Stones = The Saints

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath them. before ordained that we should walk in. Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. (Eph 2:10-22)

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up, a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded..... But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Pet 2:5-6,9)

Relationship, relationship, relationship. Christianity is all about restored relationships. We are restored to the true family of God. We are restored as brothers and sisters. Joy, love, unity and noise, the four hallmarks of a fully restored, fitly framed Saint of God. To illustrate this reality all we have to do is examine the phrase fitly framed. The word for word literal Greek of Eph. 2:21

21 . hos:G3739 pas:G3956 . oikodome:G3619 sunarmologeo:G4883 auxano:G837 . . hagios:G40 naos:G3485. . kurios:G2962

The phrase fitly framed is one composite Greek word made up from three words as follows:

4883. sunarmologeo, soon-ar-mol-og-eh'-o; from G4862 and G719 and G3004 (in its orig. sense of laying); to render close-jointed together, i.e. organize compactly:--be fitly framed (joined) together.

4862. sun, soon; a prim. prep. denoting union; with or together (but much closer than G3326 or G3844), i.e. by association, companionship, process, resemblance, possession, instrumentality, addition etc.:--beside, with. In comp, it has similar applications, includ. completeness.

719. harmos, har-mos'; from the same as G716; an articulation (of the body):--joint. 716. harma, har'-mah; raised or fitted together (as in harmonious)

3004. lego, leg'-o; a prim. verb; prop. to "lay" forth, i.e. (fig.) relate (in words [usually of systematic or set discourse; by impl. to mean:--ask, bid, boast, call, describe, give out, name, put forth, say (-ing, on), shew, speak, tell, utter.

The Saints are members of His body or temple. We are called out, cleansed by His blood and Word, and brought into the closely compacted family of God, sharing God's heritage and praising His Name. Just a look at the church that was born on the day of Pentecost, fully restored to God, full of the Holy Ghost, and fully adhering to the Apostles Doctrine, and you will see the Bride of Christ.

We can plainly see the love and unity, the gladness and joy, the togetherness and physically caring for the good one for another, the praising God and witnessing to all the people. This is the church that Jesus began building!

And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. (Acts 2:44-47)

With a church building on every corner and thousands of denominations, what is prevalent in the world today is rather still mostly non church disunity, discord, self-proclamation, self-advancement, self-righteousness, feel good, get rich, sin all you want, don’t tell me what to do, religions. I have news for you, Satan is pretty good at building churches too!

Thank God that God is faithful to His purposes. Thank God that we don’t have to be left guessing as to which church is the right one. Here’s a hint, church has nothing to do with buildings, cathedrals or the such like. Church is people willing to manifest the fruits of the kingdom, For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Rom 14:17) God is looking for individuals wanting no compromise, there is One God, One Faith, One Heaven, and one way there, the Bible way. Don’t take my word for it, here, let God Himself tell us what He is looking for:

Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. (Isa 66:1-2)

Contrite means humble, God is looking for humble, moldable people who are obedient to His word. Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Mat 5:3-9)

4) That God may be All, and in All = No More Conflict

Satan's willfulness caused division in Heaven and mankind's division from the commonwealth of God. This division has caused all the pain that you and I and all mankind have had to endure. God created us in His image with the express purpose of us having fellowship with Him. Because of our disobedience that fellowship was interrupted. Fortunately for us, God in His mercy and grace, has provided a cure for this division, and is offering to all those willing to obey God, the unfathomable promise of a fellowship so close that we are "One in Him, and Him in Us". The following prayer of Jesus reveals to us this intimate desire, and it lays out "The Plan" to bring all this about. He prayed for His Apostles, and He prayed for those who would believe in Jesus through their word. Jesus gave full authority to "Their word". We have the record of their word in the book of Acts, where the "Salvation Plan" is fully put into operation. To those who obey "Their word", God promises the eternal joys of being reunited in "ONE".

These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. (John 17:1-26)

Conclusion: A house divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:25)  applies to the Church, and our homes, marriage too.

 A house built on the right foundation, set on The Rock, Christ Jesus is eternal! An individual who submits to the Jesus authority is the individual who will be made one with God. This is the Bride of Christ. Let him who has an ear, hear what thus saith the LORD.

One Rock - One Door - One Way - One God - One Faith - One Church = Peace on earth, good will towards all men. Come out of the confusion, come out of the lies, come out of the wickedness of this world, the flesh, and the devil and his lies, and enter into the unity of God's Spirit for the Spirit and the Bride say come. God Bless. "
