The Church- Christ’s Bride! She is important!

Now from that posting I just posted, it is pretty sound with the definition of the church and the scriptures to back it. this is my issue. I am soooooooooooooooooooooooo sick of people using past issues, bad experiences,grudges, or just the simple fact that they don’t like church  for an exscuse to not attend! First of all, nobody in the church is never going to be perfect! Starting with me, 2nd they say church is within you. Answer me this though, if a person is married and become one, I would imagine that they would not want to be away from their other half, you can equate this to the Church why? Because The Church is Christ bride, he died for her and will return for her, why would I want to be away from His bride? Why did he leave the church here?

 

The bible says over in Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. The bible speaks for itself! Where should we assemble ourselves is what you may ask? The Church! What have Jesus done to any of us? And He’s in the church! No, not just in the church but yes he is everywhere, but Make no mistakes about it, His church is very important. Jesus says that I will build my CHURCH and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.Matthew 16:18 If you think about it, we hold every other organization dear job, work, school, supermarket, even the hospital, but when it comes to church , we don’t want to go! We must go within ourselves and ask ourselves what is the problem. If we are honest which God already knows, we will discover that the problem and issue lies within us. Because we want a perfect church, but that is not realistic, as long as we are in this flesh, there will be problems and issues. These are the main reasons why people REALLY don’t want to go to church.

1. Issues

2. Issues

3. and more issues

We must forgive ALL who have hurt us! We must let go of past hurts,trauma,unresolved issues,grudges! All have been hurt!

We need the Church for support,on all levels, when we are newly saved and don’t know it all about salvation, and to fellowship with other believers who share our commonality of the love for God. If we can’t simply obey this command of God to NOT forsake getting together, we are 1. Disobedient, 2. Rebellious, 3.Unforgiving, and 4. Divided. God don’t want us divided. He want us to fellowship with other Christians in Church, yes I know you can fellowship in the car and in the hospital, but we still don’t suppose to undermine or take the Church for granted. Trust me, when the Christians are raptured up and taken out of here ( this earth)  according to 1 Thessalonians 4:17, Matthew 24: 40-41. Where do you think the world is going to run????????? The Church! It belongs to God and it is sacred, we must honor the church as it being the Bride of Christ ! no not worship her, but honor her!

Revelation 19:7-9 – Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.   (Read More…)

Ephesians 5:25-27 – Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;   (Read More…)

Revelation 21:2 – And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

John 3:29 – He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

Revelation 21:9 – 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 shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

2 Corinthians 11:2 – 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.

Ephesians 5:25 – Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Revelation 21:10-19 – And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,   (Read More…)

Matthew 25:1-46 – Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.   (Read More…)

1 John 5:5-6 – Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?   (Read More…)

Colossians 1:24 – Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:

Colossians 1:18 – 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.

Let go of the issues and find you a Blood purchased Church that is teaching, preaching, and exampling the life of christ! When they make mistakes, pray for them and forgive them , just like when you make mistakes somebody have to pray and forgive you!

    you have your opinion and I have my facts and The Word! I will not argue or go back and forth with you, you already know where I stand and I will not back down from it, I know how truth sounds ! This is my blog so I posted it here, and I was out of it when we had the conversation I had a million paragraphs but the computer logged off so it was obvious that God did not want me to say it. You can be a poor slave if you would like, I am going to be free in Jesus and prosperous! money answers all things Ecc 11:19. God dont want us poor and living beggerdly lives! I can’t take the gospel to India with two dollars we have had this conversation before, I pray God opens your eyes. Being cheap,thrifty, and poor don’t make me anymore saved them Yolanda Adams or Donnie McClurkin. And what your really saying is that I did not have a true holy ghost experience with God and I did how dare you tell me what I had or didn’t have, I don’t make anything up! Maybe you have not spoke in tongues as the Spirit of God gave utterance the holy ghost is our keeper, he enables us to live this life. People are still getting the holy ghost! His Word is still right it will always be holiness or hell! God Word is commandments and we better obey all of it if we really want to make it in. And for the record, I make sure the doctrine is right! if your talking about me I make sure of that I just don’t jump and go to a church but I go because it is important to go to God’s house. So tell me is your work within you too? So maybe you ‘shouldnt go to work if it’s within you. As for Eaglevision, you can think what you want, your bad encounter was not with the people but really with God! let it go! I make the choice daily to forgive my Dad for being the misogynist that he is, he hates and abuse women, so is it okay for men to abuse women even in the church? But why is not okay for a woman to be strong and stand up? I fear no man, but God! And I will not be abused by nobody! I am not a man’s slave! I demand respect! I will respect them, but they must respect me period!!!!!!! My Pastor is not usurping her authority over no man she is preaching the Gospel! Period! God is real, His Spirit is real, speaking in tongues for today is real, healing demonic possesion is real and prosperity is in the Bible and it’s real third John 2nd verse! P
    salms 112:3! There are no perfect marriage! Only between Jesus and His bride-the Church it didn’t say gathering in the Bible, it said CHURCH! Matthew 16:18, Ephesians 5:21-33. Go to these people who have been filled with God’s Spirit and I can go to the very few old marriages that worked! You are my sister and I will always love you like I said on the phone but I need a minute to calm down. Just like I told mom listening to secular music is wrong! Just like wearing mens garments are wrong! He said make spiritual melody in our hearts as unto him not secular music that is not a rule that is a command from God’s Word and if it is a rule it’s God rule He do and say whatever He wants because He is God and we are not! Ephesians 5:19- spiritual songs not worldly songs. See the real problem people have is that they have to change their wants and appetites to live this life, we cannot call ourselves Christians with no true change or conversion we all must change and live according to His Word. I am not going to back down! I
    will not let anyone boss me or disrespect me or my body or make me think that I am a second class citizen-slave, but God and me- period!

    *correction: satan disguised himself as a serpent. so still the woman listened to the devil so that makes it even worse.
