Sabbath day (Gen.2: 1- 3 & Ex.20: 8 – 11) — By r. a. ———–Saturday, Sept.04/21
In Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Tim:3: 16)
Question: What is the New Testament meaning of “Church”.
Answer: According to Strong’s Concordance of KJV of the bible,( #1577) it comes from two Greek words meaning “an assembly” and “to call out” or “the called out ones.”
HERE’S THE SEVEN SIGNS THESE CHURCHES ARE NOT THE ONE TRUE CHURCH MESSIAH IS BUILDING.
1 – They teach the doctrines and commandments of men instead of those of the Creator-God which reveal his will for his people.
2 – Teach the dietary laws are abolished
3 – Accept transgenders as Bishop/Pastors (Lutheran Church)
4 – The church which calls its preachers “Reverend” or “Father” cannot be the body of Christ (Matthew 23:-12).
5 – Baptizing babies/children cannot be the church Messiah’s is building. Only those old enough to hear, believe, repent, and confess Christ can be baptized.
6 – Those who teach that the Messiah pre-existed as God with the Creator-God and became a man, cannot be the one true church Messiah is building.
7 – The Bible teaches that if one is wrong on one point, he is guilty of all (James 2:10). Therefore, any church which is wrong on any of the above points is not the true church of Christ!
In conclusion: Messiah told Peter, “I will build my church”. (Matthew 16:18) Notice, he was promising to build one church (one assembly of called out individuals) – not many assemblies/churches. “And God has put all things under his (Messiah’s) feet, and gave him to be the head (not a pope) over all things to the church , which is his body..” (Ephes.1: 22- 23)
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth – God’s Word (Jn.17: 17 & Ps.119: 142)
