the old church new church

The preachers say, “Go to church on Sunday and don’t forget to bring your money!” Jesus said, “Go out into the highways and the byways and compel them to come in!” And he wasn’t talking about a building; he was talking about into the kingdom of God, into the love of God! Luke 14:23. The average church preacher says today‚ “Be sure you feed me‚” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep!” John 21:16.  The average church today says, “Let’s build a great building!” Jesus said, “Go out and make disciples of all nations.” Matthew 28:19 the average church says today, “Let’s organize a big denomination!” Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20. The average church today says, “Be good, go to church and you’re a Christian!” Jesus said, “He that keeps my commandments, he it is that loves me.” And they said, “What are the greatest commandments?” he said, “to love God, and love thy neighbor as thyself.” wow!—nothing about going to church! The greatest commandment of the church today is, “don’t miss church on Sunday!”  Jesus said, “Don’t miss the will of God! Go out after the lost. Don’t wait for them to come to you.”

There are a number of important issues that Jesus and the modern church don’t see eye to eye on.

There is also no mention of a church BUILDING throughout the entire New Testament. Jesus never once taught that His followers were to meet in a specific BUILDING or the “house of God”, as they’re wrongly called today. In fact, He taught just the OPPOSITE! When He was asked WHERE people should go to WORSHIP, He answered, “Believe Me, the time is coming, and now IS, when you will worship the Father neither (at the temple) on this mountain, nor (at the temple) in Jerusalem! For the TRUE WORSHIPPERS will worship the Father in SPIRIT and in TRUTH! For the Father SEEKS such people to worship Him!”–John 4:23,24

We are told in Hebrews 1O:25, “Let us NOT FORSAKE the ASSEMBLING of ourselves TOGETHER, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us ENCOURAGE one another, and all the more as you see the Day (of Jesus’ Return) approaching.” The Lord knew that we needed united fellowship with other Christians for our own inspiration and for spiritual refreshing, and for being strengthened by His Word. There’s just something about UNITED prayer and fellowship that really brings down the Lord’s BLESSING!–See Acts 4:32-33.

It’s important to understand, however, that meeting together for fellowship and spiritual renewing–whether it is done in a church building, a great Cathedral, a private home or a thatched hut–is NOT our “SERVICE” for the Lord. Many people have the mistaken impression that by merely going to CHURCH and giving an offering, they have FULFILLED their obligation to God.

Obviously this is not all, because a Christian’s obligation, as Jesus COMMANDED us, is to “PREACH the GOSPEL to every person”!–Mark 16:15. Our actual WORK and SERVICE for the Lord is in our everyday LIVING for Him, in our WITNESSING to others, showing them love and pointing them towards Salvation. THIS is our service to God!

In Mark 6:7-13, Jesus sent His disciples out to minister to the people. It was a great deal of work, and when they’d FINISHED their SERVICE, Jesus said to them, ‘Come ASIDE into a QUIET place, and REST a while.'” Likewise today, there is a great difference between our SERVICE for the Lord and our “gathering ourselves together unto Jesus”, and “coming aside to REST” to be re-inspired! Verses 3O-31

Another interesting point brought out in this passage is the fact that it isn’t necessary for Christians to have a fancy religious building, cathedral or so-called “house of God” to meet in for fellowship and time with the Lord. For its first 2OO YEARS of existence, Christianity had NO buildings, and Christians just met wherever they could. Jesus said, “WHEREVER two or three are gathered together in My name, THERE am I in their midst!”–Matthew 18:2O.

All throughout New Testament times, the Church thrived and grew and got along fine without any church buildings or “houses of God”! Apart from holding secret meetings in forests, catacombs etc., the only meeting places that Christians had were their HOMES. Repeatedly the Apostle Paul refers to “the CHURCH that is in your HOUSE”.–Romans 16:5; 1Corinthians 16:19; Colossians 4:15; Philemon 2. Note that the house itself was not the Church, but the “Church” MET in their houses!

Mr. Pastor, is filling your heart with the things of this world, cars, building huge buildings, and making business out of religion and 

calling it “prosperity” or “God’s blessing”, the true message of Jesus Christ found in the Gospels? If you want to be a businessman, fine, do it with all your heart, but don’t bring your business to church, or worse, make church your business! Jesus whipped the money changers out of the temple that day.  Don’t you remember reading that in your Bible? Today many of those money—changers have become the pastors and spiritual leaders of our communities. If Jesus was here today, how would He rate your church in this matter? Has that spirit of business entered the true temple of your heart. 2 Corinthians 6: 16. If  the upkeep of your church and salary and car or cars takes most of  your congregations hard-earned  savings, then who is going to pay for their children’s food, clothing and schooling? Is your church only for the rich? 

“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers – not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock”. (1 Peter: 5:2,3)

Make Jesus your first and true Love today by praying the following prayer.

“Dear Jesus, please come into my heart, I believe you died  and were raised from the dead in payment for my sins and mistakes, please give me Your free gift of eternal life in Jesus Name, Amen”.

mysterious keys

(Jesus:) The keys have been in existence, as a part of My heavenly power source, used as an illustration and representation of My divinity‚ since before I came to Earth. When I walked on Earth with My disciples, I told them of this power. I gave this power to them–to Peter, yes, but to all of them as well. They accepted it, and they learned to use it in some measure.

greater access to heaven

“We have been given this amazing power, and it’s through what the Lord calls “the keys.” The keys are one with the Word and with Jesus and with His love, we have to live the lives of disciples in order to use them, and by calling on them we have access to all the power of Heaven. Not only are they all-powerful, but they are also an essential part of bringing about the miracles we need in these Last Days.”

level up for darker days

“I have promised that I will never allow you to undergo what you are not able to bear, and the truth be told, the only way that you will be able to survive and endure and continue to fulfill My mission during the dark days ahead will be through the power of the keys. You need greater power, and a greater understanding of the use of that power, than the Christians of previous eras needed.”

its simply a matter of faith

“It all comes down to faith. If your faith is a little shaky, spend some time strengthening it in the Word. But don’t just throw up your hands or start to doubt or analyze when you come across something that doesn’t fit into your little box of logic. No matter how open-minded you think you are or how big you think your box is, it’s really a teeny little speck in the realm of the universe when compared to all that there is to comprehend and learn–and that you will be enjoyably learning for all eternity! Don’t get stuck now–you’ve only just begun!” (End of message from Jesus.)

bible truth at a deeper level

“The power of the keys is not an entirely new thing. The difference is that in these Last Days I have opened a fuller and deeper understanding of them to you, the children of David. There are many truths within the Bible that were understood on some level at the time they were given, and then later were understood on a deeper level, and which I then revealed to David and his children on a yet deeper level–and when you come to Heaven, you will marvel at the depths you have not yet seen.”

treasures new and old

“That’s one of the marvelous things about My Word and about the Bible–it provides treasures new and old. You can never say that you’ve discovered everything, for even if you have read it all and even understood it all on some level, there are deeper levels to many scriptures, and I choose when and how and to whom to reveal these truths.”

revealing new truth

“There have been others of My children throughout history–powerful apostles, miracle workers, and saints–who have used the keys of the Kingdom to some degree, not really understanding or grasping the power that is available through them. They didn’t fully understand it, for I had not revealed this measure of truth about the keys.”

 The Keys of the Kingdom   The Keys of the Kingdom   The Keys of the Kingdom   The Keys of the Kingdom

 

Full access

“In that moment He gave Me the keys to both Heaven and Hell–the keys to unleash the power of Heaven and to leash any power of Hell. He gave Me full access to every power source of Heaven, the code to unlock every solution, the means to bypass all impossibilities. He didn’t just give Me keys to designated sectors or portions, but He gave Me full and unlimited access–all the keys to Heavenly resources.”

key code

“All power was given Me in Heaven and in Earth. I had the power within Me all along, just as you have had, for you were ordained and chosen since the beginning of time. So actually, in a sense, I already possessed the keys, but what happened in that moment, in terms you can understand, is that My Father enhanced My gift of faith and turned on My activation key, enabling Me to access the full power! I was equipped from the beginning, but now I would be able to access all power. All I had to do was My part–to believe and to take action. All I had to do was access the key codes, which I possessed. Much like you do today in accessing information on a computer; you punch in the right code and you’re able to access all you need to know. It was that simple.”

utilize full power

“And now, dear ones, I reveal to you this truth. When I spoke to Peter and to My early disciples, saying, “I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven,” who do you think I was speaking to at that time? I was speaking specifically to My early disciples at the time, and I was speaking to you, the children of David of the Endtime (Ezekiel 37:24,25). It is given to you to utilize the full power of Heaven, to access the full power, to use the keys of the Kingdom I have put in your hands.”

 

faith is a muscle

“Christians through the ages have interpreted these words to mean that they too held these keys in their hands, and in part, some have. According to their faith and the need, I have given some access to the keys of the Kingdom, but this has only been in part–for it has been according to the faith they exercised. Up until this time, Christians have not accessed the full power, for their faith was not so exercised as yours is to be in the days to come.”

greater works through the keys

“And know this, the power of these keys I put in your hands has now been augmented since the time My early disciples used them. The key codes have been updated! Never before have My children had access to such power as I am making available to you now–not even Peter and the early disciples, or any of My faithful prophets and great men and women of faith down through the ages. It is given to you, My faithful of the Last Days, to possess new codes that were not necessary in the past because the need did not warrant them. But now it is warranted, for you will do greater works than I. And you will not only do greater works than I did, but you will also do greater works, much greater works, than My early disciples and all My prophets and people of faith throughout history. Now the power of Heaven is increased, so your power is increased!”

power for the last days

“I’m giving you access to greater power. All power is given you, and all the power of Heaven is augmented in these Last Days! The power has been there all along, within you, but now, today, you can access it–according to your faith it is done.
The evil forces are also amplified. They surround you; they are everywhere, working to keep people in bondage and darkness. But your power is amplified many times over. You have the power to release those in bondage. You have the power to overcome all evil. In your keys, you have liberty and freedom. Therefore start today and access this power I put in your hands; use it prayerfully and wisely, and walk in and claim victories. There are no obstacles to you; as long as you continue to do your part, I will never fail to do Mine.”

key of David

THE KEY OF DAVID IS THAT CHORD WHICH I STRIKE UPON THY HARP to awaken thee from slumber–that signals thee to come to life to help My Children in the time of their great distress. The Key that I strike upon thy harp–the chord which I strike upon thy strings, is the tone that signals thee–the Key of David!”

unplug from the matrix

“I SEE A PICTURE OF DAVID ASLEEP, entombed as it were in the matrix! Above his head hangs the harp of the Spirit of God that plays the music to which his soul responds. “Upon which I the Lord thy God strike the chord which draws instant response from thy heart and brings thee instantly alive–the tone signal that activates thee and brings thee to life to serve thy people. O David, thou hast been too long entombed. O Moses, thou hast wandered in the wilderness too long with My Children! Too long thou hast kept David buried, entombed in the matrix and the old ideas! But I have awakened thee through the Key of David, and thou hast awakened and led My Children–My People–to freedom!”

keyed to god’s spirit

“NEARLY ALL OF THESE NATURAL THINGS WHICH THE LORD HAS CREATED ARE VISIBLE ILLUSTRATIONS of the unseen spiritual realities of the spirit world to help us to try to understand it and grasp its truth, so we can know God better and love Him more–and also to warn us of the Enemy and his evil devices which try to jam and short-circuit our circuits and even burn out our spiritual and mental and physical mechanisms, so they’ll be rendered useless! Which is why He says that we’re not to be conformed to this world or wired according to the printed circuits of the Devil’s Matrix–after the Enemy’s patterns–so that we respond only to the Enemy and his vibrations, so that we are keyed to react only to his impulses to do his damnable works–But we are to be completely transformed–rewired by the renewing of our minds to an entirely new circuit pattern with different responses keyed to different reactions entirely–a completely new mechanism–a new creature in Christ Jesus–old things passed away, all things become new! It only takes one blast of the mighty searing power of the Holy Ghost to completely burn out all the Devil’s old circuits in a mighty infilling of God’s Spirit–God’s great electrical power!”

one touch

“BUT YOU MUST BE KEYED BY THE LORD, turned on and in tune with Him, so He can drop out your particular set of signals that turns your key–the Key that He holds in His Hand, that He alone knows–the secret name God knows, whose tones set you in motion! He holds your key! Are you ready for Him to turn it on? Is your spiritual receiver turned on to a position of full-time monitoring, even on standby, so that when He uses your Key, it will really turn you on, so He can blast away even if it causes you to explode like a radio-detonated bomb?”

The Keys of The Kingdom   The Keys of The Kingdom   The Keys of The Kingdom   The Keys of The Kingdom

“Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, for this is the commission that Jesus has  given to you. Go and make disciples of all nations, for the children of all nations cry out for the Words of God. He opens the door of all nations of the world unto you, that ye may plant the seeds of the Words of God there.”

 “For the world lieth in confusion, and the darkness is great, and getting greater.  Therefore send the light of My Word to the nations of the world, that those in gross darkness can see the light of My Word and can feel the warmth of that light. I call you forth into a new day of faith–faith to launch out on My Word with faith in Me. Faith to launch out into the unknown. Faith to trust Me for My supply.  Faith to do a new thing in a new land.”

“Each year that the Gospel does not reach all who need to hear it, prolongs the suffering of the world. Things must get worse before they can get better, but how much better to hasten these sad and miserable years, to get them over with, so that I can end the suffering‚ put away those evildoers who have rejected Me, and start again with a new world and a flood of My love, so that everyone who remains might know Me.”

“Thus I call you, My children, to do your part to bring on the End by giving My message to everyone you meet, by not holding back, by pouring forth, by going into the highways and the byways and compelling them to come in.” (Luke 14:23).

“Behold, I send you out as sheep amongst wolves; be ye wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Take no thought for the morrow. Say not to yourselves, “What shall we eat? What shall we drink? Wherewithal shall we be clothed?” Just have faith that I, in My perfect will, will take care of it all, as well as every last one of your needs.”

“This planet aches for God! It aches for My Spirit and My truth! It aches for you to be My hands and My feet. So few are willing to truly live My life. How can you possibly say there is no need for you today? How can you not hear the cries of those around you, and the cries of those in other countries who need you? How could you possibly say that in today’s world, with so much media, where all you need to do is pick up the newspaper to know what’s going on in another part of the world? How My Spirit aches and hungers to satiate their thirst!”

“Let your candle burn brightly, for the days are few. The darkness approaches and the thick, oppressive fog of the Devil draws near. Trim those wicks, sharpen those swords, and charge into the hearts of those that are needy, and I will never fail to bless, protect, and prosper your going out and your coming in.”

“So go, My children! Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, and then shall the End come! Then I will say unto you, “Well done, thou good and faithful servants, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord!”

GOD’S BLUE PRINT FOR WORLD TAKEOVER

When one looks at Ezekiel 36 as a bird would, but seeing the whole panorama retrospectively, it is quite easy to identify a recurring account of church history. The inevitable cycle of rebirth, maturation and death can also be seen in government and various movements of all kinds. Even our very own life on earth follows this basic pattern or blueprint. Therefore we shouldn’t be surprised to find ourselves, after 2,000 years of established church history, at the point where God is ready to once again punch the default button.

Where did we go wrong?

Can we ascertain where we are in world history from either of these chapters? A conclusive answer cannot be found in either. There is a vague clue in chapter 37, but again not irrefutable. Historically speaking, each church age, reformation or what have you, has ended in secular immersion. Today’s feeble attempts by the established church at community outreach to millennials is a bandage at best, and looks nothing like the cry of revolution that reverberated across the world in the days of the early church. You may ask where have the Children of God gone?

If however, you wish to take Ezekiel 37 literally, then it seems God has every intention of raising up an army of believers, and that, out of seemingly thin air; much like Jesus did when He called out the 12. And why not? Shouldn’t God get one last Word in before the church and secular man put Him in a box forever? Of course He will. How silly to think the God of Heaven and earth would allow Himself to be laid to rest by self-righteous man.

(Ezekiel 36:22) Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for Mine Holy Name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, wither ye went. 

Return to Maker

The end time church will arise from the old and take the body of believers, the remnant, into the Millennium (Ezekiel 36: 34, 35. Revelation 12:17) At that time, God is going to have His last witness and the world will have to listen because they will be dealing with a different church —a variety that they’ve never experienced before. It won’t be a denomination, or group, it will be the Ecclesia. The work of pulling His corroded latter day church out of the slough of despond, where it put itself, will be in our day, an undeniable miracle, which will culminate in the greatest miracle of all, the Rapture! (Matthew 24:34)

Yes Ezekiel 37, I believe, is about that process, the raising up of an end time church -His final witness to a dying, selfish world. Those who hear His cry and come out in spirit, will be likened unto the 144,000 spoken of in Revelation chapter 14. God will have His say; He will not stand around idly watching His people and creation destroyed by selfish, greedy, unloving man. The blue pearl hanging in the expanse of space with a string of brilliant stars as its crown, an exquisite gift from a loving God, spurned. We were expected by God to be good stewards of His gift, our planet, but instead we have misused and abused it and each other.
