Crisis Within the Body of Christ

We must realize that the Church, the actual Body of Christ, is in crisis. There is a great split among the outward manifestation of inward faith, in that we see a very postmodern church which is taking a form of ungodliness and a more devote church which is struggling to adhered to, live out, and hold up a godly standard in an ever increasing ungodly society and ungodliness from within the Body.

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

7 Perfect Verses for American Reform and Revival

The Reforms of Asa – 2 Chronicles 15:1-7 NKJV

1Now the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded. 2And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you. 3For a long time Israel has been without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without law; 4but when in their trouble they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and sought Him, He was found by them. 5And in those times there was no peace to the one who went out, nor to the one who came in, but great turmoil was on all the inhabitants of the lands. 6So nation was destroyed by nation, and city by city, for God troubled them with every adversity. 7But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded!”

“Reform” means according to Webster’s Dictionary:

transitive verb

1 a : to put or change into an improved form or condition b : to amend or improve by change of form or removal of faults or abuses

Maturity of The Body

Maturity of The Body – Thursday, September 13th 2012

Just as an individual Christian needs to mature in their walk with Christ, the Body of Christ, the Church, also needs to mature spiritually as a whole. If an individual does not mature as a person, it will limit their ability to function properly in life. In just the same way, if the Body of Christ does not mature spiritually in a proper manner it will limit their ability to function effectively, with godliness, and a properly within their society. This immaturity will hinder the work of the Kingdom of God immensely.

The first sign of that maturity must be an affirmative to the following. Are we adhering to the written Word of God? The Word of God is absolutely true and the foundation from which all of our conduct should arise, as both individuals and a Body. We must not take the attitude that we can pick and choose what parts of God’s Word we believe to be true and what parts we believe to be subjective. To believe the Word of God to be absolutely true is not about being "traditional" it is about TRUTH. Forget traditional values and embrace truth as found in God’s Word. Traditions, even traditional values, are subject to environment and culture whereas God’s Word supersedes environment and culture.

Until we can come to a point where we have matured to the degree that we can receive each other in unity and love as members of the same Body, and open our hearts wide to each other [2 Corinthians 6:11-13] we will not see the fullness of what Christ wishes to do through us in the earth.

NKJV | ‎2 Co 6:11-18 O Corinthians! We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open. ‎12 You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections. ‎13 Now in return for the same (I speak as to children), you also be open. ‎14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? ‎15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? ‎16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” ‎17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” 18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.”

YOU MUST BE DIFFERENT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
