The Family of God

It is amazing what mankind can accomplish and equally amazing what they cannot. Mankind can go to the Moon faster than any other animal...look up into the stars and down into the very building blocks of cellular life.....but they cannot (for any length of time) simply get along.

This is why our Master said ...when you find a people who love each other more than anything or anyone (even their natural family members) there is a good possibility they are His people.

By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13: 35)

He also said to the world ...this is how you will know I am Gods answer (the anointed one) to the problems of the world. 
Not by the amount of people filling the meeting places, not by the amount of money spent on "glorious buildings", not by the innovative programs that keep people busy, but by the demonstration of His family members loving one another. Christ really can bring us all together if we will but listen to Him and receive His new Life.

The story in Genesis reveals that all humanity was created to live together in unity and no one can escape the damage that happens when we end up alone. Children need other children being raised with the same mind and heart by parents who are together and demonstrating how humankind was and is supposed to live.

Women need other women everyday that they can cry with, pray with, suffer with, talk with. Men need other men to share their weakness's with and to be carried around in each other's hearts by men who will love them,  nurture them, fuss at them, laugh and yes, cry with them.

The God who is called Love said “whosoever will” may come and be joined to Him. The organism He created for that union is the gathered people of God formed into the Body of Christ.

That is why ...before we seek anything that the Gentiles seek, family, provision for family, ministry, safety, security or anything, we should look for the place where the Kingdom (government) is revealed as the Body of Christ. If you find it’s OK to forsake everything for it, sell all you have to possess it...abandon all for it. 

If you are not sure it is the Body of Christ keep looking, but if you are sure; make haste to get there and be a part! Run there and throw yourself at the gate and beg to enter, for real Salvation exist inside their gates.

Remember that the House of Living Stones is the only place sacrifices are acceptable. An altar will be there that is worthy of you and your family to sacrifice their very lives to the Lord. Together they are the Zion of God and will one day be revealed as the New Jerusalem.
“ I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is you reasonable service” ( Romans 12:1)

“ And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be Salvation…”   (Joel 2: 32)
