The Lord Must Build the Church
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do
the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will
remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Jesus not only establishes the church but also removes a church when it
loses its value to the kingdom. If a church doesn’t witness, doesn’t
cause people to learn the truth, and doesn’t pray or if a church is
only formed by customs and catering to the flesh, not advancing the
kingdom of God, the Lord doesn’t want His name on it. You can look at the histories of some churches and some denominations and see that they
started out on fire for God, doing the great works of God. Today those
denominations are totally cold and losing members. What happened? Their
candlesticks were removed.
The only way that you can do the works of God is if the Lord builds the
church. If the Lord doesn’t build the church, you are in vain to build
it. You can build a church in the flesh, but there will be no credit,
no anointing, no move of God, and no revelation. It will be only an
If the Lord removes a church, He will send someone else to be His
witness because He still wants all men to be saved and come to the
knowledge of the truth. That is the reason why you will see three or
four churches in the same place.
You alone are the builder and establisher of Your church. I pray for
knowledge to do Your will, for courage to remain true, and for the
anointing of Your Spirit to do work that will last for Your kingdom and
Your glory. In Jesus Christ Name, Amen.
Think on These Things
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
