Since the day of Pentecost there is only One Body:
Are YOU willing to stay a faithful member of the Church of His Body - Jesus our Lord? An amazing song: Jennifer Nettles & Adele:
The Apostle Paul was given the light each person since Pentecost is literally made a member of the Church of His Body-the Ekklesia of Grace by the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit once they believe God has raised His only begotten son from the dead and confess Jesus is Lord.
The Apostle Paul was given the light we are in Jesus with God as a new creation in Jesus by the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit.
The people of Israel were called out by God to be apart from others as His people who worshipped only Him as the One True God. Israel is called a bride. The Church of the bride of the Messiah was known in the Old Covenant. The covenants-old and new - were given to Israel and will be fulfilled in the future when the Lord Jesus fulfills his role as the Messiah and Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
The reformation that began on the day of Pentecost is that a new church began by grace which was kept “secret” since the world began – Romans 16:25, This was kept secret by the One True God – Ephesians 3:9. The Apostle Paul says he received this by revelation from the Lord Jesus that people in this dispensation who believe are literally made a member of the Church of His Body-the Ekklesia of Grace by the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit – Colossians 1:27, so that there is no longer Jew or Gentile but One Body – the Body of Jesus the Messiah of Mankind, Lord of the Cosmos & Head of the Church of His Body. Ephesians 3:6
Each member of the Church of His Body-the Ekklesia of Grace is sanctified by the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit, justified by the blood of Jesus, made righteous in Jesus who is the righteousness of God. God has made Jesus the standard of righteousness – the cornerstone of the Faith.
Each member of the Church of His Body through Jesus has peace with God – Romans 5:1.
We are in Jesus with God by the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit – sanctified, justified, forgiven and made righteous through the blood of Jesus by his sacrifice of his life for our redemption – Ephesians 1:7. By his death he freed us from the bondage of the law and the oppression of Satan. This is why we are to put on the Armor of Light and stand fast in the liberty wherein Jesus has made us free.
The Apostle Paul gives us the light that God kept the gift of our spiritual birth of holy spirit into the Church of His Body, the Lord Jesus, the Ekklesia of Grace a secret from the prophets of God in the Old Testament and from Jesus His only begotten son so Satan could not interfere – I Corinthians 2: 7 & 8.
God has appointed Jesus to have all authority over the affairs of The Church of His Body – Ephesians 1:22. God has made us fellow citizens of His kingdom and members of His household as His children through Jesus – Ephesians 2:18 & 19. And someday we will see by the true light of God rather than by the light of the sun as foretold to us in Revelation 22:5.
Meanwhile we are to endeavor to keep our unity we have as the Church of His Body-the Ellesia of Grace. We are to serve the Lord Jesus with our hearts knit together in love in our commitment to the Bonds of Fellowship to keep the unity of the spirit. We are to endeavor to encourage to buildup, to edify, to exhort, to comfort one another as members of the Church of His Body – Ephesians 4:23-24.
We are to speak the truth of the Faith in love and fight for the light of the Faith,
God ordained men in the Old Testament who were faithful to Him as the One True God. II Peter 13:21. Jesus ordains Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers to keep our unity as the Church of His Body.
We are members of the One Church of His Body composed of many fellowships. We are to come together as the Church of His Body and exhort one another to hold fast to the profession of our faith and to provoke one another unto love and good works of the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit which has nine manifestations and nine fruit. Hebrews 10: 23-25. We also come together as the Lord commanded to take Communion in rememberance of the sacrifice of His life that made fellowship available.
We are to endeavor to have the light of the word prevail in our life – The Apostle Paul said our faith proceeds from the light of the truth – II Thessalonians 2:13.
It is the light of the written word that makes known the One True God – the God of Adam, Abraham, Isaac, Israel, King David and His only begotten son, Jesus.
The Lord Jesus did not waver from the truth – even when he faced death. God & Jesus loves us and we are to love one another in our commitment to the Bonds of Fellowship.
Concerning those ordained in the Church of His Body. Those who show grace to serve the Church of His Body with a gift ministry and have manifested their commitment to the Bonds of Fellowship by walking in the spirit by the light of the nine manifestations and 9 fruit of the spirit are ordained as were Paul and Timothy – I Timothy 3:6, Acts 6:3, Acts 13:3, Galatians 2:9, II Timothy 1:6.
The Apostle Paul gives us the light it was never the intention of God for ministers of the Gospel of Jesus to never marry or take vows of poverty. Paul instructed that those who serve the Church of His Body are to be married, i.e. in a heterosexual, monogamous marriage.
Today, there are fellowships that require a vow of chasity. We submit it was never the intent of God nor Jesus for men or women to deny their humanity in order to be servants of Jesus to the Church of His Body. It is time to stop this bondage of our fellow members of the Church of His Body. We have the right to dispel darkness and if necessary declare our independence from any fellowship in the Church of His Body that darkens the light of the Faith. Jesus asked: “Can the blind lead the blind?” Luke 6:39
We are the Church of His Body and we are to be the light of the world which is in darkness under the oppression of Satan, the god of this world – the Prince of Darkness – who got Adam to compromise the integrity of his fellowship with the One True God his Creator and Father.
We submit the light fellowships in the Church of His Body helped other fellowships – Acts 2:32-35, 4:35, I Corinthians 16:1-3, II Corinthians 9:6-8, Ephesians 4:28.
We submit we are to cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light and walk with God and Jesus and one another as light by the gift of spiritual birth of holy spirit. Ephesians 5:8.
Our commitment to the Bonds of Fellowship must be stedfast, constant – unwavering. If we waver – we shall be blown about by every wind of doctrine and deceived by false teachers with false teaching without ever coming to a knowledge of the truth – I Timothy 2: 4
The Apostle Paul committed to Timothy the light of our spiritual birthright since the day of Pentecost – the Armor of Light. Why did Paul choose to commit the light of the Armor of Light to Timothy? Timothy was faithful to the light of the Faith in his commitment to the Bonds of Fellowship the Ekklesia of Grace since the day of Pentecost.
