The body Building Itself Up in Love

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till 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; that 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, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from 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.

I had a vision today as I was driving home. In the vision I saw something similar to a vision I saw in March of 2010 which I will post below to give a sense of what I am about to describe.

I saw in a vision,  many people and as they gathered they became like living stones in the temple wall. The wall did not keep people out, instead, as people came to the living wall, they became part of it. The building, if you will, had walls created by people joining together to worship the Lord, however, the building had no roof. Instead, it’s covering was the glory of God and it was His glory spilling out over the walls, because the glory of God cannot be contained, that was drawing people.

In the vision I saw today October 30 2015, I  saw something similar to what I saw 5 years ago with some additions. In the second vision I again saw the people only this time as the people gathered, they began to climb on top of one another so that they were standing upon each others shoulders.  One person would come in and then another would come up to him/her and the one already standing there would help the other up onto his/her shoulders. This kept repeating and the people kept coming and climbing upon the shoulders of the ones standing and the also the shoulders of those already standing upon shoulders.

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

It is worthy of note that Apostles and Prophets are the foundation, i.e., the bottom. They helped the others climb up and form the wall. The leaders were on the bottom, the more authority given, the lower they were. The job of leadership is to equip the saints.

I did not see in the vision any fighting over position. All were helping the other climb starting with those lowest, the apostles and prophets.

    The core.

    Is it an utopia?

  2. ONE BREAD ONE BODY
    “For WE,
    though many,
    ARE one bread and one body;
    FOR we all partake of that one bread”
    I CORINTHIANS 10:17

    Love is mentioned 156 times in the New Testament while the word WE is mentioned 630 times; the majority of these are concerning the body of Christ. The WE is the expression of the Love. The commonality of the communal heart was a ONENESS in the peoples’ lives revealing the ONE BODY and the ONE CHURCH. The thing that made the unity was the partaking of that ONE bread which was broken for them. The closer one is in relationship to the HEAD the more one is cognizant of the one body. This explains the fragmentation and sectarianism that has robbed the body of its power and reality.

    Love is the fruit of relationship with the head. Love surpasses knowledge, rejoices with the truth, stands for truth and knows that the only hope for anyone to be truly free, truly righteous and truly like the Son is by the ministration of truth. Where truth is neglected love will be a dismal expression of all that God is for “God IS Love”. I cannot know what love is except in the true knowing of God. Truth is my only hope for knowing what LOVE really is.

    Love is the selfless and pure expression of the God who so loved the world that HE gave His only Son. That same Love that gave is the same God who in total holiness and impartiality is the judge of all men. All the heavens and they that dwell there are awestruck with the Holiness, the Righteousness and the Omnipotence of His Majesty. The most holy Angels who have never known sin or rebellion shield themselves from His glorious penetrating light; such a contrast with the apathy and religion of today. Where there is no unity in the midst of God’s people there will be little or no glory.

    In every case of unity in both the Old and New Testaments there was God’s glory to such an extent that men were bowed and the heavens were opened. The unity PRECEDES the moving of God. On the day of Pentecost they were in ONE ACCORD prior to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We read in the Old Testament that when the singers and dancers were of ONE Voice the Glory of God fell. Jesus said…

    “And he spake also a parable unto them;
    “No one tears a piece from a new garment
    and puts it on an old garment. If he does, he will tear the new,
    and the piece from the new will not match the old.
    And no one puts new wine into old wineskins.
    If he does, the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled,
    and the skins will be destroyed
    LUKE 5:35-38

    The New Wine will not be poured out into old wine skins. They are old, inflexible, and weak. They have become rigid and have a form of righteousness that cannot be changed. God is not in the renovating business; HE TRANSFORMS anyone who dares walk in truth and in the light. His Love does not compromise with sin and religion. He cleansed the temple in His Day and He has not changed! Men were satisfied with their paltry offerings and even the disciples (prior to Pentecost) were found marvelling at the temple buildings in their day. Jesus says that there will not be left one stone of that old order. For the new was ready to break forth upon the grounds of the pure sacrifice of the LAMB OF GOD. Now it is a temple not made with hands; a living temple made up of living stones mortared together by the simplicity of the LOVE of God. Men no longer build their own edifices but are themselves built together INTO this glorious temple.

    “In whom ye also are builded together
    for an habitation of God through the Spirit”
    EPHESIANS 2:22

    “Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men,
    but chosen by God and precious, you also,
    as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house,
    a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices
    acceptable to God through Jesus Christ”
    I PETER 2:5

    The ONE BREAD is to bring forth the ONE BODY in truth and reality. Not a oneness based on the effort of men or the compromise of the truth! This ONENESS is the REVELATION OF THE TRUTH not the ignoring of it. TRUE LOVE IS THE FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT which IS CALLED THE “SPIRIT OF TRUTH”. When men love programs, teachings, the esteem of men and self promotion more than they love truth they reap the fruit of their own ways. This in itself is the great judgement of God. When men are content with such things nothing changes. Agnosticism is in full expression and men declare that God moves at times and not at others as if it were some mysterious thing. Truth is seen as being relative; there is no concern for wrong teachings and soulish ways. We are not to say anything, do anything, that might offend others. God has a name for such a generation… ICHABOD!

    “And she named the child Ichabod,
    saying, The glory is departed from Israel”
    I SAMUEL 4:21

    It is time to read the scriptures for what they say and to see through the “status quo” of today. It is a day to return to the simplicity of truth and the power of His Spirit that can only be found where the New Wine skin is made up of those that love one another fervently out of a pure heart. We can no longer meet in the ways of the world. The true church is not an earthly organization but a spiritual organism living in the breath of the Holy Spirit, where men no longer walk in titles and positions but live and walk in the pure expression of His love. It is a place where our meeting together is no longer orchestrated by the programs of men but has become the place where the Spirit of Liberty is free to EXPRESS THE LIVING CHRIST. A place where His Glory comes in such power that the ways of Ananias and Sapphira are judged and God is glorified. A place where HIS Glory so permeates our gatherings unto Him that no earthly agenda can survive and men speak as the oracles of God.

    We need to stop reading the scriptures as if they were for another day; to stop viewing the Holy Word as if it were a historical document.

    Daniel in captivity UNDERSTOOD by the reading of the scriptures that they would be in exile for 70 years and began to pray and repent; GOD ANSWERED! It is as men read the scriptures and hear HIS voice that repentance and change comes. He did not simply say “Well, God is going to do it”… HE knew God enough to know that HE MUST RESPOND to God’s Word personally to experience the LIFE OF IT. FAITH IS SIMPLY THE ABILITY TO RESPOND TO GOD.

    The scriptures are read everyday across our land but the famine of the word is not in the reading of it but in the HEARING of it. For FAITH comes by hearing not reading. So Jesus warns us to take heed “HOW WE HEAR” and “WHAT WE HEAR”.

    “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD,
    that I will send a famine in the land,
    not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
    but of HEARING the words of the LORD”
    AMOS 8:11

    That day is upon us, but the promise of God to His Church is …

    “He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says”

    The unity of the true Body of Christ is only known by the simplicity of WALKING IN THE LIGHT…

    “But if we WALK in the light, as he is in the light,
    we have fellowship one with another”
    I JOHN 1:7

    Ω
    “The unity of Christendom is not a luxury, but a necessity.
    The World will go limping until
    Christ’s prayer that all may be one is answered.
    We must have unity, not at all costs, but at all risks.
    A unified Church is the only offering we dare present
    to the coming Christ,
    for in it alone will He find room to dwell”
    Charles H. Brent
