My Dreams and Visions

Dreams and Visions

What is the church? Where is the church? Who is the church?

What is the Church? Where is the Church? Who is the Church?

What is the Church?

Mat 18:19 Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven.

Shall agree (συμφωνήσουσιν)
From σύν, together, and φωνή, sound or voice. Transcribed in our word symphony.

Mat 18:20 For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them.

In my name (εἰς τὸ ἐμὸν ὄνομα)
“into my name.” When two or three are drawn together into Christ as the common center of their desire and faith.

Act 7:48 “Yet that doesn’t mean that Most High God lives in a building made by carpenters and masons. The prophet Isaiah put it well when he wrote,
Act 7:49 “Heaven is my throne room; I rest my feet on earth. So what kind of house will you build me?” says God. “Where I can get away and relax?
Act 7:50 It’s already built, and I built it.”

Joh 1:14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth. ( Jesus was/is the prototype of the temple built without hands by God Himself)(If we are to have an impact in this world, the “Word” indwelling in us must become flesh, in other words, the world needs to see a Jesus with skin)

1Co 3:16 Don’t you know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?
1Co 3:17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him because God’s temple is holy. You are that holy temple!

Act 2:42 The disciples were devoted to the teachings of the apostles, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.
Act 2:43 A feeling of fear came over everyone as many amazing things and miraculous signs happened through the apostles.
Act 2:44 All the believers kept meeting together, and they shared everything with each other.
Act 2:45 From time to time, they sold their property and other possessions and distributed the money to anyone who needed it.
Act 2:46 The believers had a single purpose and went to the temple every day. They were joyful and humble as they ate at each other’s homes and shared their food.
Act 2:47 At the same time, they praised God and had the good will of all the people. Every day the Lord saved people, and they were added to the group.

Where is the church?

Mat 18:20 For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them.

Joh 4:21 Jesus told her, “Believe me. A time is coming when you Samaritans won’t be worshiping the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. (No fixed place of worship but instead an attitude of the heart)
Joh 4:22 You don’t know what you’re worshiping. We Jews know what we’re worshiping, because salvation comes from the Jews.
Joh 4:23 Indeed, the time is coming, and it is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. The Father is looking for people like that to worship him.
Joh 4:24 God is a spirit. Those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Act 16:25 Around midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God. The other prisoners were listening to them. (They were having church and their fellow prisoners were listening. Worship should not be confined to a building but should instead be a way of life)
Act 16:26 Suddenly, a violent earthquake shook the foundations of the jail. All the doors immediately flew open, and all the prisoners’ chains came loose. (true worship opens prison doors and sets captives free)

Who is the church?

Mat 5:13 “You are salt for the earth. But if salt loses its taste, how will it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people.
Mat 5:14 “You are light for the world. A city cannot be hidden when it is located on a hill.
Mat 5:15 No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. Instead, everyone who lights a lamp puts it on a lamp stand. Then its light shines on everyone in the house.
Mat 5:16 In the same way let your light shine in front of people. Then they will see the good that you do and praise your Father in heaven.
1Co 3:16 Don’t you know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?
