How I understand Church

How I understand Church. The verses I take very seriously are, Mt 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. The responsibility of the leadership anointing is to mature the saints to do the work, not to do it themselves, [Ephesians 4:11 to 14] just like a father who trains his children to become mature and leave home and take responsibility for their own family and so it goes on. At the gathering of the saints the Word tells us that the body is to take part 1Corinthians 14:26. How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. Over the last 40 years the Pentecostal arm of the church has bred babies, it is all about control, keeping the flock in the fold and it has not worked There are millions of sheep wondering around lost because they do not know the only true shepherd, Jesus. For 39 years we have listened to hurt sheep because the leadership has not brought healing, Why? Because they have not been an example, showing the sheep what true relationship is all about. How can they when their relationship with their wives and families are a mess, they have done as it says in Ezekiel 34. All very sad, especially when a so-called shepherd falls because he has entered into pride through not being humble and transparent before the sheep, by believing their anointing gives them an office. Proverbs 16:18 Pride comes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. To be a true Christian is all about a living relationship with the Godhead and letting the anointing flow through who the Godhead chooses which makes every part of the body function as one, yet all different parts. It has taken me almost all of my 72 years to die to self and be alive to Christ, nothing of me and all of Him. Paul said, “I die daily”. 1Corinthians 15:31. A true shepherd gives, taking nothing in return, looking only to Jesus for all his or her needs, no wages, nothing because Father God is supplying all they need as he promised when we seek first His Kingdom which is doing his will, and only His will, each and every day. My wife and I are a proof of that. I think I have mentioned several books that are number one reading for all saints at this time, The Shack. By William P Young. The Noticer. By Andy Andrews. He Loves Me. By Wayne Jacobsen. So you don't want to go to church anymore. By Wayne Jacobsen and Dave Coleman Reimagining Church. By Frank Viola. Biblical Church. By Beresford Jacob. They are all saying the same thing, all Heavenly Father desires is a living relationship with his creation, especially man who he gave the right to choose. The other issue is that it is time we went back to understand the eternal purposes of God that we find in Genesis 1 and 2 and Revelation 21 and 22. From Genesis 3 to Revelation is boot camp, man choosing which tree he would live by, the tree of life, or the tree of the knowledge of good and Evil
