” The Body Of Christ “

A United People By An Eternal Spirit ………

 

Who or what is the body of Christ? Some would say it is anyone who goes to a church of choice is a Christian and are in a group of believers which is called the body of Christ. Although this may sound correct there is more to it than that. The gathering of people together where Christ is named is not what makes the body of Christ if His Holy Spirit is not present within the people, and Paul knew the time would come when the truth would be taught the true church of Christ is a unity of those who scripture says are the temple of God (A Spiritual Church) 1 Peter 2:4-10. Paul did not preach where Christ was named or else he would be building upon another man’s foundation. (Romans 15:20-21).  Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation: But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.

 

 

We have confirmation the body of believers which make up Christ’s true church is not a building of wood and stone, nor of silver and gold for the day of the Lord will confirm that Jesus Christ is the one and only foundation as His spirit in the people are eternal…….. But the day will declare it that nothing material thought to be of Him shall stand nor remain when tested by His fiery return! (1 Corinthians 3:9-17).  For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

 

 

This post was written from a most recent experience and maybe you have had the same encounter as well. I made a mistake and as a Christian I went before someone to make amends as we are suppose to do and as soon as I said I’m a Christian they said yes so am I and then they name a religion like Catholic, Baptist,Etc …….. I most recently learned I was being lied to which compounded the situation for me for ONCE AGAIN someone was in front of me claiming christianity by merely visiting a building once a week as though lying has no bearing on anything. Therefore I was moved to write this post and pray it will be a blessing to others to know they are not alone who truly love the Lord in Spirit and in Truth! (John 4:23-24)  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth……. Lying is not a character God looks fondly on as He tells who will be in heaven, and liars are not one of them (Revelation 22:14-15).

 

If we are what the word of God says is Christian we must not walk as we once did before knowing and following Christ, it is written lie not one to another and our lives are to be an example of Christ. (Colossians 3:4-10).

  3. Boy the Precious Lord knew I needed to read this post and used you, His Daughter, to help a Sister in Christ for a time such as this!! I won’t go into detail but what at shocking and disappointing night at work. It was already a storm shaking the boat and tonight a few waves got in the boat. Jesus is letting the water out so this boat can sail on to do His work and be strong in His Strength. I can’t tell how much your sharing has helped me. There’s a nugget here for me to grasp; but He is allowing me to balance me timbers so to speak and has put that nugget in my heart to ponder and He will reveal the Jewel. Amen. God bless
