Are you a lover of denomination or God? Who or what are you worshipping? What are you preaching? RELIGION OR CHRIST.
“And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned”.(1 Corinthians 2:1-14 KJV).
“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry”.(2 Timothy 4:1-5).
Beware of Denominationalism
1 Corinthians 1:13
Is Christ divided? Were your denominations crucified for you? or were you baptized in the name of your denominations?
•Denominations cannot save you, heal you, deliver you, set you free and get you into heaven. Only The Lord Jesus Christ can!
+Pursue Christ and not denominations.
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one Body, and one Spirit, even as all of you are called in one Hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one Faith, one Baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
+It in Christ we Live, and Move and Have our Being, and not in denominations.
•Denominations are influenced by satan to divide God’s People the Church for the purposes of frustrating and defeating God’s plan.
Jesus said Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.
+There are no divisions in the Kingdom of God, and the Church (the Body of Christ).
+All denominational walls should come down. We are all of one body, and that one body is the Body of Christ also known as the Church.
1 Corinthians 1:10
Now I plead to you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you all speak the same thing, and that there be NO DIVISIONS among you, but that all of you be perfectly joined together in the SAME MIND and in the SAME JUDGEMENT.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
