The Goal of God

“The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee. And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected (finish my work). Nevertheless I must walk to day, and tomorrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.” […]

The City Church

Globalization is occurring in the Church and in the earth. This divine act ends the mentality of independent local churches and causes a convergence of the corporate man (the Christ) that is helping to redefine the “City Church” the apostle Paul spoke about. “For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:” (Titus 1:5). “And some days after Paul […]

The Body Church vs The Institutional Church

Recently, the Lord has been dealing with me regarding this subject. This is just part […]

In My Father’s House Are Many Mansions

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:1). I think we need to change our concepts of heaven’s mansion […]

Church Planting vs Making Disciples

First and foremost, “Church” is not a building used for public worship, or a Christian development program, or a denominational institution. This is the mindset and understanding of many people today and it is a wrong biblical understanding of the Church. The word “Church” comes from the Greek word “ekklesia” which is defined as “an assembly of called-out ones.” The root meaning of “Church” is not that of a building, but of people. The ekklesia of Christ is not a […]
