Marriage Joined By God

Marriage Joined By God

One of the two reasons that will make people miss the rapture of the church is inappropriate marital relationship. A wedding must be joined by God to be a properly constituted marriage.

What the world calls wedding is completely different from what the Bible defines as wedding. Every wedding has natural and supernatural aspects. The natural aspect is leaving, which is made up of activities leading to the handing over of a woman by her father or duly appointed representative to the bridegroom for ‘cleaving.’

It also includes the first act of sexual intimacy between the bridegroom and his bride after ‘leaving’ their parents. It has natural and divine aspects.

The real cleaving, which is supernatural is the joining that takes place in the spirit, soul and body of the man and the woman. That is what heaven regards as wedding. And that is why cleaving without following due process attracts the death penalty.

Quenching the Power of the Holy Spirit

Quenching the Power of the Holy Spirit

 “I am crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Gal 2:20)

Birthday celebration can quench the power of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Christian. Every Christian was first and foremost born of blood, the will of the flesh, and the will of man. That is physical birth. Spiritual birth that gives the power to become a son of God resulted from the conviction and implantation of a Hypostatic Chip in the believer by the Holy Spirit.

By celebrating physical birth without remembering or acknowledging spiritual birth a believer can whittle down the power of the Holy Spirit in transforming his or her life from son of man to son of God.

Since Christians are deemed to have been crucified with Christ it becomes redundant to celebrate birth rather than the victory Jesus secured for us through His resurrection from the dead. Before He went to the Cross the Lord set forth an example of how to celebrate a believer’s new status in Him. “For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.” (1 Cor 11:26) It is the ordinance of Holy Communion.

Rather than celebrate our date of birth year after year, we should daily celebrate His death and resurrection because “we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”

Holy Communion taken worthily is the Lord’s provision for His followers to appear before Him without spot, wrinkle or blemish by avoiding filthiness of the spirit, soul and body till He comes again.

HOUSE OF GOD

HOUSE OF GOD

The NT place of worship is not the equivalent of the OT tabernacle, temple and synagogue. God’s house in this dispensation is the Church, those called out from Jews and Gentiles.

Christ is the head of the Church and “the body is not one member but many.”

Grace, not circumcision, qualifies to be fitted into the Body but works will determine the fitting location.

“Our ancestors carried the Tabernacle with them through the wilderness. “David found favor with God and asked for the privilege of building a permanent Temple for the God of Jacob. But it was Solomon who actually built it. However, the Most High doesn’t live in temples made by human hands. (Acts 7:44, 46-48)

Do Not Miss Church Rapture

Do Not Miss Church Rapture

There are seven human dispensations.

The church age is part of the dispensation of grace, which is the sixth.

The church age will come to an end with the rapture of eligible Christians seven years before the dispensation of grace comes to an end.

After the tribulation of those days, Jesus with raptured saints and holy angels will descend to the earth from heaven.

On alighting on earth, Jesus will destroy the armies of the world assembled at the Valley of Jehoshaphat and send His angels to select kingdom citizens from among surviving human beings.

To miss the rapture of the church is to miss being part of the Priesthood of Jesus Christ.
