The True Church

Scripture:  Ephesians 1 v 22 - 23:  "And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church, 
23 which is His body, the fullness of Him that filleth all in all."

Colossians 1 v 18: "And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence."

The desire of Jesus Christ, who is the true living Head of the Church which is His body, is to have His body all in one piece, made whole, united, responding to the signals His brain sends to it.

To be a living, functioning part of His body you must be born again which removes all sin from you. You must be filled with the Holy Spirit so that you flow with the rest of the body in praise, worship, belief and obedience. You submit your will to Jesus so that He can mould you into your true function.

You recognise truth from error so that no lie, no false doctrine or false prophecy is acceptable. You choose to walk in holiness, meekness, truth, patience and love. You forgive all things every day to nourish the body with the unadulterated word of God. You bless and do not curse, you pray and hope and give so that all will know the love of God.

The church is not a building of brick and stone. It is not found in denominations, sects, or any such thing that is built on false doctrines or premises. The born again Christians who are in those places are there to bring light and truth to people who belong from cradle to grave but never have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

The gospel is not preached, altar calls are not given, you are christened as a baby while your parents make vows over you. You confirm those vows when you are in your teens and are now a confirmed Methodist, Anglican, Presbytarian etc but Jesus does not know you. Your name is not written in the Lamb's Book of Life unless you are born again. The only people who go to Heaven are those whose names are in that Book. 
Revelation 21 v 27: "And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life."

The Roman Catholic Church is a co-mingling  of Babylonian and Christian religions. Mainly Babylonian which was based on Baal worship through the witch, Semiramis, and her son Nimrod. She promoted him to become the God, Baal so now Nimrod was divine. He was born on 25th December. She also married her son so she could be a goddess.

The birth of Jesus was superimposed on that date and the Catholic Mary took over from Semiramis. That is why Mother Mary is worshipped above Jesus in the Catholic Church. The Vestal virgins became the nuns in their convents and the celibate priesthood was also the Babylonian tradition.  Mary is now co-Redeemer with Jesus and was assumed into Heaven according to their doctrines.

The high priest of the Babylonian religion was called Pontifex Maximus, Pontiff and Pope. These titles are all attributed to the head of the Roman Catholic Church.  None of these titles are according to scripture.  All the garments worn by the Catholic priesthood from Pope to clergy are Babylonian.  The very hat the pope wears is the hat of Dagon the Fish god, in whose honour they only eat fish on Fridays.

The Roman Catholics started baptising babies as in the Babylonian religion many babies were sacrificed by fire to Baal after being sprinkled with water on their heads and named. Their doctrine of creating saints after famous Catholics have died is not found in scripture. 

Even Mother Theresa has been canonized a saint, that great humanitarian, who is said to have done two miracles since her death, which qualifies her for sainthood.  Saints are those who are born again, washed in the shed Blood of Jesus, and follow the Lamb of God.

This Roman Catholic Church is not the church of Jesus Christ. It never was and is unlikely to change. In the end times the head of this church will be the Antichrist and even now Pope Francis' influence is lulling evangelical churches into its embrace. Read Revelations chapters 16 and 17 for God's judgment upon this church. God gave this instruction: 2 Corinthians 6 v 14 - 18.

In every nation, city, communist or muslim prison you will find the Body of Christ being a witness to Jesus. In the last days these prisoners of faith will be persecuted because they are the only ones preventing Satan from clinging to power. Jesus will pour out the Holy Spirit on all flesh in the last great revival and those who heed His voice will be saved.

The true Church is separated by God for His purpose.  It is for those who have come out of the world (Satan's domain) and are citizens of the Kingdom of God.  We are a new creation of which the resurrected  Jesus is the prototype, so we can no longer say we are only human.  

The truth is in 1 Peter 2 v 9 - 10: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
 10  Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy."

We are the children of the King of the Universe who will never die and we have glorious eternal life with Him starting the moment we are born again and become a new creation.  The true church is the invisible body of Jesus consisting of a people who are of all nations, colours, and types, who follow the Lamb.

Prayer: Father God the end is coming and You are preparing us to be changed into the likeness of Jesus. The pure of heart will become more pure, the filthy will become more filthy so that You can separate the two into the sheep and goats. I pray, O God, let billions hear and follow the Lamb into everlasting life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
