One mistake is thinking we know God by only listening to a speaker once a week. God is our father; so how would you like your mother telling you about your father but never meeting him personally?
Yes, we need church and enjoy learning from the speaker, but if we don’t personally spend time with Jesus too; How are we going to share our Heavenly Father with others? We need both teaching and fellowship with God; otherwise how do we create a life of victories God promised us? What we know is our mind and who we know personally are different. It is our Bible reading and our believing the Word while acting on it that makes us a vital part of Christ’s body of winners.
Step one is to pick up the Bible, step two is to read the Bible, step three is to believe the Word and step four is to actually act on it. All four steps move us toward life’s victories and the reason Jesus picked us to help Him as one body with Him as the Head covering the earth.
Seems simple, but takes effort too! Why? because we are part of a worldwide Holy Team created to have the authority as the image of God taking dominion on earth; not sitting in buildings. The Bible clearly states in Genesis 1:26-28 that on the 6th day of creation God made mankind in His image, according to His likeness, with complete authority over all earth.
God also blessed them saying: “Be fruitful, multiply on earth and have dominion over every living thing on earth.” Proverbs 10:4-5 adds that Christians are the winning team of God: and also to give close attention to God’s Word; to incline our ears to God’s Word not departing our eyes and heart, and also to keep our heart diligent on life’s issues.
Yes it may look like the world’s falling apart but we should not focus this lie. God’s Word says He created heaven and earth for His people to have the dominion. Notice “His people” not those who are not. Today, He is calling Spirit filled believers around the world to come together getting involved as His end time army, the Body of Christ.
God’s army is similar to our country’s army, spread around the world; yet one army working together. Also today God’s Christian churches are spread throughout our cities, states, our county and other countries, called the Body of Christ who is the Head. To get a good view of what is happening you should read Ezekiel 37:4-10 about the bones coming together as a body, called an army and the House of God!
