WE MUST GIVE A BIBLICAL ANSWER.

ASKING BIBLICAL LEARNERS AND STUDENTS, THIS VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION:

 

WHO SHOULD THE CHURCHES & IT'S SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP, SHOULD BE SERVING?

 

The Churches & Yeshus Believing Nations Transformational Apostle & Messenger: Elder James R, Winfree, Sr.

 

A biblical church involves at least two people gathering together in the Name of Yeshua, Jesus Christ. “For where two or three are gathered in Yeshua's Jesus, Name, their's He among us” ( Matthew 18:20 ). The Church is not a place, thing or anything that is built with man's hands. The church consists of believers coming together, in the same physical space, in the Name of Jesus Christ. To gather together in the name of Jesus means gathering together to publicly worship Jesus, serve Jesus, and help others love Jesus. If you’re not gathering together with other believers in the Name of Jesus, don’t call yourself Yeshua's Jesus Church.

 

A biblical church celebrates the Lord’s supper together. 1 Corinthians 11:23–26 says, “For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when He was betrayed took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, ‘This is My body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same way, also He took the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the New Covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. Jesus, Yeshua was sent to His own first and when they did not receive Him, He turned to the believing Gentile World and Nations.”

 

Jesus commanded His followers to regularly come together to remember and celebrate His death. This is a command, not an optional add-on for the Christ Believers life. This isn’t about preference or opinion or “connecting with God”. The Lord’s Supper is a communal event in which the church publicly proclaims the death of Christ. While not expressly forbidden, there isn’t a single place in scripture where a person celebrates the Lord’s supper by themselves. A biblical church celebrates the Lord’s supper. If you’re not celebrating the Lord’s supper with other Yeshua Jesus believers, don’t call yourself a church.

 

A biblical church is led by qualified elders. In Titus 1:5–9,Elder Paul said to Titus: “This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you, if anyone is above reproach, the husband of One Wife( Not men marrying men or women marrying women ) and his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination. For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.”

 

Apostle Paul insisted that the churches he founded be led by qualified elders. This was so important to Apostle Paul that he left Titus behind in Crete for the express purpose of finding and appointing qualified elders for each church. In our post-modern, democratic society, the idea of eldership isn’t especially popular, but it is especially biblical. If you’re not being led by qualified elders, don’t call yourself a church.

 

A biblical church worships in biblical Spirit and Truth. Ephesians 5:18–21 says, “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.”

 

Notice that this passage has both a vertical and a horizontal dimension to it. We are to be filled with the HolySpirit, making melody in our hearts to the Lord. We are also to address one another with our psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Singing isn’t just about you connecting to God or experiencing a particular emotional response. When the church gathers to sing we are also proclaiming truth to one another. Honestly, God isn’t primarily concerned with whether or not we like singing or emote when we worship. He is concerned that we proclaim His goodness and glory to Him and to one another through song. If you’re not singing to the Lord and to one another, don’t call yourself a church to be in Spirit and Truth.

 

A biblical church maintains corporate holiness through church discipline. Matthew 18:17 says, “If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church,( If you are talking to a religious building, something is very wrong with you LOL). And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.” The church really is a fellowship of spiritual protection your brothers and sisters. Jesus expects his followers to help one another pursue holiness. If a Christian begins to engage in serious sin, Jesus expects the members of His Christ Believing community to lovingly rebuke him or them. If the person refuses to repent of their sin, the entire church is expected to get involved.

 

This process presupposes that a Christ Believer will be vitally connected to other Believers in the family of God. The reality is, the process of discipline can’t happen apart from a loving biblical fellowship. If you’re not maintaining holiness through fellowship discipline, don’t call yourself a church.

 

A biblical church is a biblical fellowship where Christ Believers can use their spiritual gifts and blessings to bless one another. 1 Corinthians 14:26 says, “What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up.” If you are married to Yeshua Jesus, and call yourself His bride or wife, its time for you to obey Acts 2:38 and Romans 6;3-5, My wife is married to me for 41 years and she wears my name, and if you are Jesus's its time to put on His Name in baptism. Period.

 

In writing this verse, Brother Paul was clearly assuming that the Corinthians would be gathering together on a regular basis in the Name of Jesus for the purpose of worshiping together, serving one another needs in the grace faith family, first. When we gathered together, we were to use their spiritual gifts to build one another up. It is impossible to build other Christians up if you’re not regularly gathering together with other Christians in the context of corporate worship. If you’re not using your spiritual gifts to build other Christians up, don’t call yourself a church. Who was the Promised Land for, the Hebrews Or the Egyptians?

 

Contrary to what your pastors, bishops, elders, ministries founders and spiritual leaders say, heaven is Not for unbelievers or sinners or the ungodly. Attending a religious church building will not get you into heaven nor paying or pleasing the preacher.

 

And there really is such a thing as a biblical church that is going to heaven. Are you in the Church that Yeshua Himself Birth and Built, please make sure before leaving this planet or world?. Amen.
