Remember - 'happiness' is dependent on 'circumstances'. But 'JOY', well now, that is 'the fruit of the Holy Spirit', that gets better and better, through it all!! Just remain a 'branch in the Vine'!
[John 14:1-15:10; Galatians 5]
AGAIN, Good Saturday Morning, My Beloved Friends:
What I Believe, based upon - 'The Word of God'.
Post 1 - Saturday, May 5, 2018; Post 2 - Saturday, May 19, 2018; Post 3 - Saturday, June 2, 2018; Post 4 - Saturday, June 16, 2018. Post 5, Saturday, June 30, 2018
By now, I am certain that you realize that for me to 'fellowship' with 'any group' LABELLED 'Christian', I first need to discover if the 'group', no matter their 'label', is a 'Biblical based and believing' 'Congregation', or 'church'. So, what do I look for in the 'preaching and teaching', to consistently attend? [Notice, I do not look for how people sing, or such. That is not a matter regarding - 'FAITH' NOR 'SALVATION', through the 'PREACHING AND TEACHING CHRIST'. ROMANS 10:17]
Simply put, a 'Bible Adhering' 'Church' or 'Congregation' is a local group of people who firmly believe and practice the following things as presented in the Bible, continuing:
Q. Separation. We believe that the Christian's body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [1 Corinthians 6:19,20], that God owns the body of the Christian, and that God judges the Christian according to how he or she treats God property! God commands Christians to be different from the world [2 Corinthians 6:17; 1 John 2:15-17], and to not only be 'peculiar' [1 Peter 2:9] but to be so 'peculiar' that they are 'foolish' in the eyes of the world [1 Corinthians 1:18]. We believe that the Bible teaches that Christians are not to marry non-Christians [1 Corinthians 6:14], and that they should not look like them, talk like them, or even live like them in areas of promiscuous and immoral dress, or vulgarity of conversation [1 Timothy 2:9; 4:12; 1 Peter 3:1-9]. The area of a Christian’s music and entertainment must be such that one would not be ashamed to have Jesus present, for He is, but sober, wise, decent [Colossians 3:16,17; Ephesians 5:8-11]. We also believe that Christians have different levels of maturity [we are not all the same], and ought to be given time to grow and mature [1 Peter 2:2; 2 Peter 3:18].
This is why when you become a 'believer in Jesus Christ', your 'friends' who are not, will distance themselves from you, mock, scorn and ridicule you, etc. It is part of 'taking up your cross'. [Matthew 16:24; Mark 8:34; Luke 9:23] You are 'blessed'! [Mathew 5:10; John 15:20; 2 Corinthians 4:9; 2 Timothy 3:12] You must be ever 'loving' towards them, but, 'move on'. [Matthew 10:23] You are never alone, you have - Jesus. [Matthew 28:16-20] And pray for those who treat you so, for who knows, perhaps the Lord will reach them, and they will respond to His call. [Matthew 5:44; 1 Corinthians 4:12; ] Never be ashamed of Jesus. [Matthew 13:21;Galatians 6:12] No one, nothing is - ever more important!
R. Missions. A world-wide program of missionary evangelism in accordance with the New Testament principles, methods, and doctrine. Many of us have always known that the whole world is lost, and in need of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we have always endeavoured to proclaim that Gospel locally, and throughout the world at all costs. The mission of the local New Testament Church involves 'winning souls' [facilitating individuals to come to Jesus], baptizing them, training them into a Biblical culture and world view, and reproducing themselves in their local area [Jerusalem], then in their Judea, and then in their Samaria, and in the uttermost parts of the earth as well through foreign missionaries. [Matthew 28:19,20; Acts 1:8].
S. Giving. God's people are commanded to bring their tithes (1/10th of their gross income) into the storehouse (Malachi 3:6-10) on a regular basis, on the first day of the week [Sunday; 1 Corinthians 16:1,2] when the local church meets. The tithes are for the payment of the expenses and maintenance of the Church, and its activities. Extra giving or special offers in addition to the tithe is used to support missionaries, and for various other evangelism. When no 'congregation' is present, one must seek the Lord's advise as to where to give, for His Glory. Do not just 'throw money' at 'anything'. Seek to know the Lord's will, for you may be an answer to a prayer that God wants YOU to be the vessel of blessing. Remember, 'you are the church' in those circumstances!!
Now, as you 'search the Scriptures' for your self, [Acts 17:11], on the next posts in this series, we will see what we believe about such as heaven and hell, and other significant topics. Do continue to 'visit' all the 'rooms' in 'my house in Jesus'. Let me know, if I may be of any assistance to you, to draw closer to the Lord. Blessing, in the Precious Name - 'The Name Above All Names' - Jesus Christ. Amen. Amen.
