THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints (us) for the work of ministry for the edifying (building up) of the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11,12

    Contrary to popular belief we are the ones who do the work of ministry, but in today's fast-paced consumer-driven churches pastor does it all! Marry/bury, visit the sick, help the poor, etc. while the body just shows up and writes a check! But that is not the way Jesus set it up!

    The five-fold ministry teams are to equip us for the work of service and this gives the opportunity to reach many more than one man could ever do. Jesus never meant for one man to lead a congregation but for a plurality of elders to have oversight of His body! Remember it is relatively easy for the enemy to deceive one man, but to deceive a group of men in agreement is almost impossible!

    In the past few decades, the five-fold ministry has been received by the body of Christ, the apostle, one of the last to be acknowledged even though he holds the blueprint and Divine design of God's church are now recognized as a gift given by God to the body.

    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. Ephesians 4:13

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH PART VIII

    As you, therefore, have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. Colossians 2:6-8

    For eons, man has passed down his traditions and doctrines on an unsuspecting population of deceived people. Deceived themselves, they apply their tradition to each new generation, each time watering down the truth a little more until we are in the midst of a false and dangerous church deceiving and being deceived!

    For the most part, the modern-day evangelical church's doctrinal statement consists of one praying a prayer, getting baptized, joining the church and tithing. Instead of making disciples of Jesus Christ, Sunday school has become discipleship which for the most part is a dead work! Jesus said, "Go into all the world and make disciples!" Sadly, most are trapped in a building led by a pastor who convinces the congregation to stay and not obey the Lord to Go!

    In the beginning, the first one hundred twenty were all filled with power and authority to give witness to the resurrection and to perform miracles, signs and wonders that resulted in thousands coming to the Lord, so many that they had to sell their possessions and invite new converts into their homes having all things in common!

    For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him who is the Head of all principality and power. Colossians 2:9,10

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1

    Jesus presented His body as a living sacrifice for our sins as He died on the cross, an example for us to give our bodies back to Him in service! In other words, we sacrifice our lives for the One who sacrificed His for us!

    We have been so programmed by the traditions and doctrines of men and demons that going to church is all we are responsible to do and when we don't, guilt tries to make us ashamed if we missed a service. Have you ever heard anyone say, "I need to go to church?" Instead, you need to say, "I am the church, I don't go, I am!"

    This is where deception clouds our vision of what the Supernatural Church really is, Jesus Christ in the earth today, in us! Not a place to go, once a week, twice a year, or whenever we feel guilty, but we are the actual body of the risen Lord and Savior in the Spirit! Christ in us, the hope of glory!

    And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. I Peter 2:9

    Under the old covenant men would come to God through a human mediator, the High Priest who would, in turn, go into the Holy of Holies to make a sacrifice to atone for the sins of the people. Today under the new covenant we have a Divine Mediator, the Lord Jesus Christ who shed His own blood to make a way for us to go directly into the very throne of the Most High!

    We who are born again new creations in Christ are a royal priesthood able to minister under the supreme authority and power of God! We can now enter through the blood of Christ into His presence without the aid of a human priest. The church today lacks this ability, for the most part, do to the spiritual condition of many members who are not saved or enlightened to the truth of God's word. The present-day church is set up like the old testament model with a shepherd/sheep mentality!

    The pastor is the High Priest and the congregation are just called to sit, sing, pray, listen, shut up and tithe! This model is found nowhere in scripture, especially for a pastor to lead an assembly of royal priests! Likened to a human body the supernatural body of Christ is comprised of many members who all have a certain function to accomplish just as our own human body, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, and so on! Remember, we are His body in the earth!

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    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 2:4,5

    This is the supernatural church, a house made of living, breathing spirit filled stones, submitted under the leading of Holy Spirit and endowed with power and authority from the Lord Jesus Christ, the author, finisher and Apostle of our faith!

    Jesus, being the Chief Cornerstone chose twelve foundational stones who would become apostles, who in turn would start other supernatural churches and the divine multiplication would begin and flourish throughout the world! This example of the church that Jesus designed and built lasted for years until man began to get his hands on it and defiled the whole thing!

    When Constantine made Christianity the state religion, the supernatural church was defiled and lost its power becoming a place to go instead of the Person of Christ! Over the ages many pagan practices were added and man became the head instead of Christ! Today we have a sad expression of what Jesus intended His church to be with one on every corner, open for business and deceiving millions with false doctrine and the tradition of men.

    But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly (Festal Gathering) and church of the firstborn who are registered in Heaven, (Lamb's book of life) to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of a new covenant. Hebrews 12:22-24

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, and offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma. Ephesians 5:1,2

    Jesus came to earth for two main reasons: to take away the sins of those who repent and to build His church. He gave us an example to follow as He died for us, so we are to die to self and the things of the world in submission to Him.

    In regards to the divine construction of His church we are to imitate what He did in order to begin the work. As in the beginning there were three, the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit and all of Creation began by the ability of three to agree in faith! With the power of agreement and by faith, the Godhead spoke into existence the entire universe!

    Jesus began the work by choosing two disciples and the beginning of what I call the "T-Cell," the three in agreement believing for divine multiplication. A part of the natural human immune system the spiritual T-Cell also protects those in agreement from demonic attack. Three believers in agreement are a powerful weapon in regards to spiritual warfare!

    "Again, I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven. "For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them." Matthew 18:19.20
