THE BASTION OF TRUTH 2 

 “ but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth”. 1 Timothy 3:15 (NKJV)

From “Machaira with Apostle Bennie” Episode 201, we realized the best place to run to, amidst the uncertainties of this world, is the Church. For the Church is the organic expression of the unshakable Kingdom of God. 

The people of the world who see the Church as a threat would definitely have a different opinion about this. Nevertheless, the essence and the impact of the Church in the world cannot be denied. From the revelation of the scriptures, there is the affirmation of this truth of the Church and its purpose in this world. The Church is the herald of the glorious news of the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus. Apart from the Church, there is no other community of people anywhere in this world which presents and represents God’s Kingdom.

You might have experienced some people within the Church who act contrary to the reality of the Kingdom of our Lord. But that doesn’t deny what the Church is – THE PILLAR OF TRUTH! Selfish men will always look for ways to creep into places and then attempt to make waste of gullible people. However, the light of the truth cannot be comprehended by any dimension of darkness. Don’t allow your experiences of some people within the Church to corrupt your love for the Lord, and then move you away from the community of the Church. Don’t allow your heart to be steered away from the glorious essence of the Church.

The people within the True Church of our Lord Jesus, are being nurtured and built-up unto the measure and the stature of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:13). Because of the truth of our Lord Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit within the Church (the Body of Christ), it is without doubt that in the consummation of all things, the Church will be a spotless community.

“ Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:25-27 (ESV)

 There is no single institution in this world, which is built on the foundation of the cravings of men that will not sink. Christ is the foundation of the Church, and He is the Truth. This means the Church is built on Truth and remains solidly strong beyond the end of time.

“For no one can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 3:11 (Legacy Standard Bible)

Jesus Christ is the chief cornerstone of the Church (Ephesians 2:20).

Knowing that Jesus Christ is the foundation and the chief cornerstone of the Church, we must have this unwavering assurance that to be built in the Church, is to be built in the bastion of truth.

Talking about the Church, I am not speaking of your denomination. I am speaking of the community of Christ, the corporate body of all the saints who stand and walk in the sound doctrine and unadulterated gospel of our Lord Jesus. I am not talking about denominations where the gospel of our Lord Jesus is peddled and don’t esteem sound doctrine.

Go for what the Word of God says, enjoy the revelation of Jesus. Don’t give your mind to empty traditions and human philosophies which end up in endless arguments. 

“ My counsel for you is simple and straightforward: Just go ahead with what you’ve been given. You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. You’re deeply rooted in him. You’re well constructed upon him. You know your way around the faith. Now do what you’ve been taught. School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving. Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.” Colossians 2:6-9 (Message Bible)

The fullness of Christ is revealed through His Body which is the Church. The Church remains the only Bastion of Truth in this world; therefore, let nothing move you away from the Church! Be unwavering involved or part of what God is doing in His Church.

Hallelujah!

Thank you, sweet Jesus, for making me part of your church, in which you are the firm foundation and the rock on which it stands.
Thank you, Sir, for revealing to us the real concept of the Church knowing that it goes beyond denomination but is a group of corporate saints that walk in the unadulterated word of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.
I also learned not to waste on time on unnecessary arguments or fables that does not advance His KIngdom but rather follow the unadulterated word of Christ Jesus!
