YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH (PART 1)
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turn into fables, (2Timothy 4: 4)
The Lord said I’m going away to prepare a place for you (St. John 14:2), No man knows the day nor the hour in which the lord shall appear, But we know when he shall appear we shall be like him (1 John 3:2). We are living in the last and evil days, the lord is soon to come and we need to be ready. Although you have been going to church, some of us all our lives, but church attendances don’t give you a free go to heaven pass. The lord is coming back for a church; we need to know what church and be in it.
There are over 10-20 thousands different religions or faith base organization throughout the world, and everyone claims to be serving the true God.
In this lesson we want to discuss what church is God coming back for, and how do we find that church. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1), he also created humans, and in every dispensation humans became more subject to the way of the devil and not of God, so God said there is a highway to heaven and it’s called the way of holiness.
The church: God is returning for a church without spot or wrinkle, we must look at the beginning of church history. The church began when Moses left Egypt to enter into the promise land. The lord gave him Ten Commandments to govern the church and the children of Israel chose not to keep Gods word. So the Lord put his word into the mouth of the gentiles (Isaiah 49:6). So on the day of Pentecost that’s when the New Testament church began.
It continued where the Old Testament church left off, The Old Testament prophesized about the out pouring of the Holy Ghost. The Lord said in the last days” I will pour out my spirit”. On the day of Pentecost the spirit was poured out, according to, (Act 2:42), the Lord’s Church continued steadfastly in the Apostles doctrine.
This is the church in which the foundation was laid by God. (Ephesians 2:20), also states that he is the chief corner stone.
God’s not looking for the catholic doctrine or the muslin doctrine or Baptist, Methodist or Presbyterian, God is looking for pure holiness (Hebrews 12:14).
