DIVINE ORDER AND THE GLORY OF THE LOCAL CHURCH

The church is God's chosen entity to display His manifold wisdom to the rulers and principalities in the heavenlies (Eph. 3:10). If our national and regional events do not translate into local corporate authority, power, and holy living and character at a grass-roots level in our various spheres of influence, we are wasting our time.


God is in the process of building strong local churches, and I believe that the greatest manifestation of God's glory and power will happen at a local level in this day. The Lord is looking for order, unity and maturity in His body, as well as collective movement and not so much individual movement. Whoever heard of an arm going through an open door without the rest of the body? Each member of the body exists for one another. Dear friends, we must understand that!


Every saint and minister must belong to a local body. This alone would resolve many issues of sin, strife, poor doctrine, and accountability in the body of Christ today. We have too many loose cannons and lone mavericks out there in lala land and cyberspace world saying and doing the wrong things without any accountability to anyone. It is harmful and divisive to the body.


I have heard young ministers tell me quite often, “my church doesn’t support my ministry” or “ they don’t let me exercise my gift”. Humble yourself and flow with the grace of your overseers. Prove yourself trustworthy. Character is usually the issue with these younger ones. Your fellowship with your local body should not be governed by what can receive from them, but by what you can give. That is how the members and various gifts in the body work. They do not exist for themselves, but for one another.


I’m telling you, it’s all coming back to the local church in each city becoming unified, and ministry gifts working together toward the harvest. This will cause a new adorning and corporate power to be restored in the body. Para church groups and ministries will always have their place, but not at the expense of dividing the local church.


You have many teachers but not too many fathers. True fathers never hurt and divide the local body, but help equip it and build it.

Hmm… been members and in worship teams in church most of my life and in every evangelical local church in our small community plus became members of several out of town up to 3 hrs away. The reason why so many churches over the years is because 3 of our long time memberships were in churches where the pastor/leadership was involved in multiple extramarital sexual affairs. We didn’t stop though and keep searching and found one after the other that were actually good until the Holy Spirit and all life was canceled. Now we’re older and know many in these churches which we talk to from time to time and none of them have the spiritual experiences we have…
