Praise be to God!
The Lord is continuing to teach us about the true nature of the Church and yesterday He showed us the following:
- The Church belongs to Christ and it is Christ who builds His Church. Mt. 16:18
- Jesus has been given all authority and is seated in the highest place. Mt. 28:18-20; Phil. 2:9-11
- Christ is the Head of the Church which is His Body. Col. 1:15-20
- The Church is therefore not a man-made institution but the supernaturally conceived Body of Christ. Acts 2
- The Body of Christ is the supernatural people of God joined to their supernatural Head, serving their supernatural God! Acts
- The Church is the life-giving habitation of God. 1 Cor. 15:44,45; Eph. 2:21,22
- The Church lives under an open heaven. John 1:51; Eph. 2:18
- As the supernatural Body of Christ, the Church is commissioned to go into the world to reveal her supernatural nature to glorify God. Mt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8
- The greater the revelation of Christ, the greater the revelation the Church will have of her supernatural identity.
We praise God for the wonderful things He is revealing to us and encouraging us to walk in! Hallelujah!
