#25–Where do you believe the church is on a prophetic timetable in the earth? and will we become stronger brighter in 2013 having a clear kingdom vision or will we be more divided in doctrine and self interest? will we put our beliefs before loving people or will we just praise ourselves and our accomplishments or will we really see the temple of God open and the ark of the Covenant revealed for all men to see?
David R Huskins Because I believe “the church” is HIS I have to assume she is right where she needs to be prophetically and otherwise because she is HIS responsibility however, many of us in the church have to adapt and become willing to be changed. As individuals we have to be willing to lose some “personal dogmas” and “agendas” to find HIS agenda for the WE instead of the ME but I trust HE is the one presenting her to HIMSELF so HE will assure everything that pertains to her will be handled right on HIS time frame. I pray however that I will become more loving of others and aware of their accompolishments and less aware of my own doctrines and interests. I certainly want to be a tool for unity and not division. As we see HIM we will be changed into HIS image…help us look not at each other but over each other to HIM. Thank you for allowing my two cents on each of your questions. I don’t profess to have answers as much as ponderings and more questions but I have tried to use the questions for an honest introspection. Again thanks for hearing me out.
Stephen Polansky Sensing a great shift in the framework of mentality and how we perceive things in the church. Many comments here and your other posts are confirming this sense to me anyway. Bishop identified the church as “she.” That’s a huge shift from traditional thinking and administration. I’m certainly not there yet, but the women WERE the first ones to the empty tomb and saw the Gardner. The men? Well…Judas hung himself, the rest scattered, Peter had to be restored with breakfast on the beach and Thomas, being from Missouri, had to be shown. It’s just hard for men to imagine the female role of bride and well…wife. Just being honest.
Gregg Wilson There is no time table. We live in the New Day, and to that day is no end. We have been already putting our beliefs, before what actually IS. We look for a physical appearance in what will come without observation. We continue to seek without….what truly is within. We fear, above ALL, being real. There is just too much responsibility in it……………or is there? What timetable….we struggle with milk.
Bill Benninghoff Jesus must reign from heaven until every enemy has been put under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. (1 Cor 15). The head (Jesus) is in heaven and the feet are part of His body here on earth. After death is no more, then comes the end where Jesus will deliver up the Kingdom to His Father and God will be all and in all. So until we see no more death on the earth, the church still has a job to do here on earth and the coming of the Lord is still a long way off. The church must increase in our maturity and in our unity and in our operational authority over sickness, demons and death.
Gregg Wilson Mankind seem to be continually trying to understand(receive) what is already given. He has put all of Himself into us, to the point we are all around Him, yet the futility of works towards getting around Him will not stop until the wine is consumed, which is understanding. We have been so conditioned to our false being of awfulness that we think it robbery to consider ourselves with God, Who calls us sons.
Shannon Galon Really looking forward to more of your input on this one. Maybe when you put it on your other website? I think six months ago I may have had something to say, but since then my applecart has been completely overturned (thanks for that btw! JK ) I’m seriously begging the Lord for clarity on alot of things in this area, and it will come I know, but I’m not very patient
