AGAIN, Good Saturday Afternoon, My Beloved Friends
From May 5, 2018 through today, August 11, 2018, through this Bi-Monthly Saturday Series, you have in the postings, 'what and why I believe, what I believe.' It is my since and heartfelt hope and prayer that you will continue to come in and to 'linger', to 'meander', and to 'browse' the various postings in the various 'rooms', as you know what and why I believe as I do. May you be 'fed'. Amen.
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; Post 6 - Saturday, July 14, 2018; Post 7 - Saturday, July 28, 2018; Post 8A-B - Saturday, August 11, 2018. Continuing and in Conclusion
O. The Lord's Supper. We believe that the Lord's Supper is a serious reminder that the local church, as a body of believers regularly partakes of in order to remind its members of the cost of their salvation, as well as for spiritual cleansing, that the church may keep itself pure from carnality (1 Corinthians 11:28-30).
The Lord’s Supper is simply a memorial – a time to remember what Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross. (1 Corinthians 11:24,25). It is not either a continuation of the crucifixion, or a repeat of the sacrifice of the cross. Only saved individuals, scripturally baptized as a profession of their faith in Christ, and living in a godly, Christian manner as members of a local church, have a right to, or can properly partake of the Communion of the Lord's Supper in the Church. This means that baptism is a prerequisite to the memorial supper and the local church is to judge the qualifications of those who enjoy its privileges.
P. Membership. We believe that a local church is to be composed of only born again believers (1 Corinthians 12:13), that have chosen not only to obey Jesus Christ's command of baptism (Acts 2:41), but also, have decided to join together with an organized body of believers for the expressed purpose of soul-winning and discipleship based upon the doctrines of the word of God (Acts 2:42).
This does not mean that those who 'are not believers' are not welcome to come to hear the Word. We want them to come and allow the Word through the Holy Spirit to speak, to convince them of the Truth, and prayerfully, that they be converted unto Faith in Jesus Christ.
But, we do not alter our teaching, preaching, to make them 'more comfortable', or, to 'be more friendly' or to 'accommodate them' and 'encourage them' in their 'own way' or other 'ways' to God, just 'to have them come to the service'. That is truly outrageous. And, it is 'cruel', for we, who say we 'believe' are 'encouraging them to continue to hell and damnation'. That, is not 'love'. [1 Corinthians 13]
Now, as you 'search the Scriptures' for your self, [Acts 17:11], we are concluding our study relevant to 'what I personally believe' and seek to share with my sisters and brothers in Jesus. Hopefully, in this series, you have seen the importance of 'being on the same page' in your beliefs concerning 'God' with others. You see, what you believe will determine your behavior. And, if your, or my behavior is not reflecting the behavior of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as we are joyfully submitted, surrendered, and yielding to the indwelling Holy Spirit, we are just 'pretenders', 'hypocrites', 'deceived' and 'deceiving'. It will not bode well for us.
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. Enjoy your review and pause until September, 2018. Amen. Amen.
