Like Nothing Else on Earth!

No club, society, association, religion, institution, order, organization can compare to it. It is like nothing else on earth! It wasn’t planned, promoted, organized, etc. by human beings. It was started supernaturally, spontaneously, dramatically and unexpectedly. It was accompanied by miracles. People were made a part of it, Spiritually. It’s Head is a dead man resurrected from death. All who have truly been born again are part of a world wide body of which Jesus Christ is the Head. A huge part of that body now resides in Heaven and the whole body is moving in that direction. That part of the body still on earth has a wonderful relationship with the Head and with each other. It meets in local assemblies to worship, learn, love, support, evangelize, fellowship, edify, encourage, intercede, etc. When any part of the body is healthy and functions as intended, it blesses every local assembly in which it is involved. It started in a blaze of glory: “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place and suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting and there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:1-4). The growth of the church was swift and has continued ever since. “For by one Spirit are we all (who are truly saved)  baptized into one body.” (From I Corinthians 12:13). We become part of this body in a way that we never become part of anything else! Do we even begin to grasp what a tremendous miracle and privilege has been given us? Let us plead for the church to be revived as did John W. Peterson in, “Come, Holy Spirit:” “The Holy Spirit came at Pentecost, He came in mighty fullness then; His witness thru believers won the lost and multitudes were born again. The early Christians scattered o’er the world, they preached the gospel fearlessly; tho some were martyred and to lions hurled, they marched along in victory. Then in an age when darkness gripped the earth, The just shall live by faith” was learned; The Holy Spirit gave the church new birth as reformation fires burned. In later years the great revivals came, when saints would seek the Lord and pray; O once again we need that holy flame to meet the challenge of today! Come Holy Spirit; dark is the hour; we need your filling, Your love and Your mighty pow’r! Move now among us, stir us, we pray; Come Holy Spirit, Revive the Church today! Revive the Church today! Revive the Church today.” Selah! The church is to be pure, holy, healthy and strong. This is only possible when each part of the body is pure, holy, healthy and strong. Are you; am I?  Ron
