THE CHURCH: CHRIST IS THE CHURCH
(6 July 2008 by Carl A. Patton)
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere. As the Spirit descends upon me this Lordís Day I see the Church.
There is a physical building and there is the heart. But where is Jesus in this picture? We pray that these words sent from Heaven will edify, uplift and bring comfort in peace to the brethren.
Gracious Lord we are grateful
and filled with thanks that
you inspired the great Prophets,
the Apostles to render in writing
the laws for the Church.
A building stood that housed
countless people and the people
who rivaled its stature sought to
build greater stones to house even
Soon many lies were told to
get the numerous often lost
people to fill up the great
auditoriums now called Churches.
The more tickets sold the greater
was the money changing.
Meanwhile even in the midst of
so many people and the great
emphasis on selling tickets there
was a remnant of the true Church.
They often were disturbed by the
Church goers as they looked to the Bible.
Looking and embracing John they
also leaned on the bosom of
Jesus. They felt his heart.
This was/is the Church. Can
You see life without Jesus?
Nor can you see the Church without
God and Christ.
I stood as John did. We pray that
you will also. There is no need for a
Revelation to the unseen to see
Jesus. The Revelation has already come.
Peace and Paradise Carl A. Patton a willing servant of our Savior Christ Jesus writing for the FreedomJournal 14 July 2008.
