SPREADING THE WORD WITHOUT SAYING A WORD MINISTRY

JESUS CHRIST, THE HEAD OF THE BODY
WHO IS THE BODY? WE AS BELIEVERS ON CHRIST JESUS, ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST, THE CHURCH!!! 1 Corinthians 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. Ephesians 5:23 even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.
- 1 Thessalonians 1:4 Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
- Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
- John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
- Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.
ACCORDING TO THESE VERSES, WE CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT WE ARE CHOSEN BY GOD TO BE ONE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE BODY OF CHRIST!!! Colossians 2:19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; Colossians 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
1 Corinthians 12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 1 Corinthians 12:16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 1 Corinthians 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 1 Corinthians 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 1 Corinthians 12:19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 1 Corinthians 12:20 But now are they many members, yet but one body. 1 Corinthians 12:21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 1 Corinthians 12:22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 1 Corinthians 12:23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 1 Corinthians 12:24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 1 Corinthians 12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 1 Corinthians 12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. 1 Corinthians 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
- Matthew 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
- Mark 9:35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
- Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
RELIGION ALWAYS DIRECTLY OPPOSES THESE TRUTH IN GOD’S WORD, RELIGION EXHAULTS RELIGIOUS LEADERS ABOVE ITS MEMBERS!!! Luke 18:9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Luke 18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. Luke 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
SINCE WE ARE ONE BODY IN CHRIST JESUS AND ARE CHOSEN BY GOD TO BE MEMBERS OF THIS ONE BODY, WE SHOULD RECOGNIZE THE OTHER MEMBERS IN THE BODY!!! OUR SPIRIT, WILL BARE WITNESS WITH OTHER MEMBERS WITHIN THE BODY WHO ARE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, THERFORE WE WILL BE LIKEMINDED AND IN ONE ACCORD!!! NOT ALL WHO CLAIM TO BE MEMBERS OF THE BODY; ARE MEMBERS!!! Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.
JESUS SAID IN Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. BASED ON THESE TWO VERSES, JESUS INSTRUCTED US TO PRAY IN THIS MANNER, HE SAID, “Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” JESUS SAID IN THESE VERSES THAT WHATEVER IS IN HEAVEN, WILL BE DONE HERE ON EARTH!!! WE KNOW THAT IN HEAVEN, THERE IS NO SIN (UNBELIEF,UNBELIEVERS, UNRIGHTEOUSNESS), NO PAIN (SICKNESS), NO MORE DEATH (SPIRITUAL), NO TEARS, NO CRYING, NEITHER SORROW, SO THERE SHOULD BE NONE ON EARTH IN THE BODY OF THE TRUE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS!!!
QUESTION: IF THERE ARE NO UNBELIEVERS IN HEAVEN, THEN WHY AS MEMBERS OF THE BODY OF CHRIST JESUS, DO WE ALLOW UNBELIEVERS TO INFILTRATE THE BODY OF BELIEVERS AND ALLOW THEM TO BRING US DOWN??? Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. Jude 1:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. Jude 1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; Jude 1:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. Jude 1:19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. YOUR SPIRIT WILL RECOGNIZE THEM, BE LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!
WAKE UP!!! AN UNBELIEVER HAS THE SPIRIT OF THE “DEVIL IN” AND “ON THEM”, THE WORD OF GOD IS CLEAR ON THAT!!! 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “BELIEVING IN CHRIST JESUS” AND “BELIEVING ON CHRIST JESUS”!!! THE “DEVIL BELIEVES IN JESUS” TOO, THE “DEVIL DOES NOT BELIEVE ON JESUS”!!! SO IS THE DEVIL PART OF THE BODY OF CHRIST JESUS, BECAUSE HE BELIEVES IN JESUS??? NOT AT ALL!!! 1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Galatians 2:4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: WE ARE GOD’S CHILDREN, THAT’S WHY GOD WANTS US AS BELIEVERS TO BE SEPARATE FROM THE UNBELIEVERS, TO KEEP US SAFE FROM THE DEVIL’S SNARE!!!
HERE WE SEE THAT JESUS HIMSELF INSTRUCTS US TO CAST OUT THAT MEMBER FROM THE BODY!!! Matthew 5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. Matthew 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. WE SHOULD ALSO FOLLOW THE WORD OF GOD, AND REMOVE ALL THAT ARE NOT IN ONE ACCORD WITHIN THE BODY OF CHRIST!!! IN RECENT TIMES, THERE WERE TWO SO CALLED SISTERS, WHO WERE ALWAYS COMPLAINING OF SICKNESS, PAIN, OF OTHERS WRONGING THEM BY REMOVING THEM FROM “BELIEVERS GROUPS” AND UNFRIENDING THEM ON FACEBOOK. THEY WERE BRINGING DRAMA INTO THE BODY OF BELIEVERS AND CAUSING DIVISION WITHIN; THEY WERE PREYING ON THE FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS OF OTHERS, BRINGING THEM INTO BONDAGE THEMSELVES!!! WE SHARED THE WORD OF GOD WITH THEM BOTH, TO NO AVAIL. THE WORD OF GOD IS TO EDIFY THE BODY, PAUL MAKES IT VERY CLEAR IN Romans 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another. Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
WE SHOULD FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE THAT PAUL PUT FORTH FOR THE BRETHREN IN CHRIST JESUS!!! SOME BELIEVE THAT IT’S WRONG OR INSENSITIVE TO DISASSOCIATE YOURSELF WITH AN UNBELIEVER; YET THE WORD OF GOD SAYS IN 2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
SO WE CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT GOD’S WORD INSTRUCTS US TO RID OURSELVES FROM THIS TYPE OF INDIVIDUALS, CALL ME INSENSITIVE OR UNLOVING, BUT Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
