House of God
I have a dream of a better life and at the same time become a better person even within and after the process of transition. Most of us want changes though new and orthodox changes are mostly opposed. People are stuck with the routine and old customs and traditions. Dealing with a new and better one means starting from the very beginning and thus tedious and time consuming.
Repeatedly reading the letter of Saint Paul to his brethren in the Church of God at Corinth and to the Macedonians, Philippians and Thessalonians, It never came to my mind that the church where I once belong was never found in the Bible, not until I have a closer look and keen understanding of the Scriptures.
1 Cor 1:2 to the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, and called to be saints, with all those in every place who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours.
2 Thess 1:1 From Paul and Silvanus and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Cor 8:1 Now we make known to you, brothers and sisters, the grace of God given to the churches of Macedonia,
Knowing that the Church of God is the true church, I can’t help but to bring the good news to my family, friends and relatives but to no avail. I was called foolish and sometimes branded as out of my mind, by going against the people or customs of our fathers. Now I understand why Jesus and his Apostles were killed for spreading out the good news.
1 Cor 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.
Will you blame me then if I say that the existing churches, bearing not the name of God are all faked, as the people of God are called not by any name but by his name.
2 Chr 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Undoubtedly this is the truth unless our minds are already blinded by Satan who is the god of this world.
2 Cor 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
This is the challenge for all the Christians of our time. We must start looking for the house of God wherein righteousness dwells.
1 Tim 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
Are you now in the house of God? If not then start making the changes not tomorrow but today as in now. For whether we live or we die, we are for Christ.
Rom 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
1Thess 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Thess 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
