Hello Audience! Welcome to RTGF TV program.  The Forum is known for her notable biblical clarifications by revelation knowledge. They speak to everyone who works with God, irrespective of status – Theologians, Pastors, Bishops, Evangelists, and etc. The purpose is for all to focus only on the cross of Christ and on the message of Him crucified (Gal. 6:14). In addition guard against addition to, & subtraction from God’s breath (Rev. 22: 18-19). Today we will continue with the “Root Series” titled: Know the truth & enter by the door before He is shut (Rev. 3: 7-8). For a recap, Jesus is the door. Anyone who enters by Him, he will be saved, and go in & out and find pasture (John 10:9). In Episode 1 God shown that grace is “intersession by Christ (Rom. 8:32-34).” This is something new against the prevalent interpretation of grace as “unmerited favor,” & etc. all of which suggest opinion of men. Now Episode 2 of the Root Series.

My Name: Dr Danson Ubebe

Our topic for today is: “Finding the church Jesus Founded.”

Objective: Though the topic might shock many we speak as we hear Christ speaks to equip you with revelation knowledge of the rock on which Jesus built His church and her identity.

Text: It is written that a wise man builds his house on the rock and it survives all ferocious rainstorm. But a house built on foundation of sand will fall when beaten by same rainstorm (Mt. 7:24-25). For the purpose unknown until now, Jesus asked His disciples: “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” (Mat. 16:13-14). Then the following dialogue issued: “But who do you think Am I?” Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Then Jesus replied, “Blessed are you Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, & whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, & whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Mat. 16:15-19). [In the context, the keys signify the Holy Spirit given to man (John 20:22-23). The gates of Hades shall not prevail signify death will not have dominion over the church (Is. 38:10)]. Christianity has since lived with the puzzle. But it has remained its unsung fiasco. How? Watch & find out.

Now which rock do you think Jesus spoke of? Was it Peter? Or the revelation that “He is the Christ, the Son of the living God?” Or something else? To date two main schools of thought exist: The views of Catholics and of Non-Catholics. Has any shed light on the riddle? Let us find out now.

The opinion of men is here represented by opinion of Catholics and non-Catholics.

Now we know that opinions of men about the rock are wrong. So what is the rock? If exegesis of the rock is wrong the church built on it will be wrong; meaning the doctrine will be corrupt. If the rock was never considered before building a church, its purpose will be that of builder’s agenda. This is the origin of Christianity (Orthodox & Emerging) which lacks a rallying gift of God that unite those who call on the name of God and of Christ. The missing uniting gift is the rock Jesus referred. Only God who made all things, knows what they are (Is. 40:26). He reveals things which belong to men thru His word & His Spirit. It is by revelation knowledge, directly or indirectly, man can know natural things, and the purposes.

(Demo it with a book – front & back gages) – This is the worldwide position of things seen equally thru same prism or lens of God.

It is the root of the word; “absolute” in life situations.  It guarantees consistency and unambiguous certainty in the way the Maker designed and intended things to be.  It’s the source of right & wrong. Manufacturers follow the same process to produce product manual. This was the way God disclosed to Peter the identity of Jesus by letting him see Him through the same prism. The result is the absolute universal “truth” which came through Jesus.

Finding the church Jesus founded. It is written that Jesus is the foundation laid for the building of the temple of God, which is His church, and the gospel of our salvation (1cor. 3:11). This followed His crucifixion on the tree (tagged the cross) for our offences and His resurrection three days later for our justification. Moreover, disciples are members of the household of God having been built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets, with Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone (Eph. 2:19-20). From God comes the truth by the Holy Spirit to man who imitates Christ. The truth according to the word of God is His power for man to continue in the doctrine and fellowship of the apostles, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers (Acts 2:42). It was for this purpose Jesus came to first witness the Law and the Prophets fulfilled and ended the old covenant.

It is written Jesus is the Rock (1Cor. 10:4) – Explaining invisible with visible.

Union of units of rock = Rock. All are liable to it alone.             

                 Catholics

[1]. Believe the rock is Peter. Support with Jesus’ order to

Peter to feed His sheep (John 21:15-17).

[2]. Now Peter means stone (John 1:42).

[3]. Filth often separate stone from the Rock.

[4]. Also Peter is a creature and death prevented him from

continuing in office like priest under law (Heb.  7:23-24)

[5[. Sin separated Peter from Christ (Is. 59:2), until perfect.

[6]. So to build house on him is like to build on Sand base.

[7]. Therefore Peter is not the rock Jesus talked about.

[8]. God favored Peter for 2 reasons: * To Know who Jesus is, & * to preach Him to Jews, as Paul to Gentile {Gal. 1:16)

Non-Catholics

  1. Believe D rock is The Son of the living God (Mat. 16:16).

It is like to say an Ocean is huge body of water which is

a statement of fact. So it has not addressed the issue.

  1. 2. Thus their interpretation is not the rock Jesus meant.

So what is the rock Jesus referred?

[1]. Recall Jesus is the Rock (1Cor. 10:4). [2]. He is also the truth (John 14:6). [3]. Now the Rock is made up of units of rock. [4]. So each unit of rock is equivalent to truth which came thru Jesus. All together make up His body (Col. 1:18).

[6]. So the “truth” is the rock Jesus referred (John 14:6).

 

     Finding the church Jesus founded –God’s view

  1. Equally, Jesus came for the purpose to witness & testify to the incarnation

    of the truth and to make truth known for the New Covenant in His blood.

  1. Whoever is of truth hears His voice (John 18:37) & is subject to Him

alone, and not to another member of the body.

  1. Hearer of His voice is known as the church of Christ (John 10:27-28) & as well as His body which is personified in every member by godly morals.
  2. By ritual, the church is signified by the cup of blessing and the bread which

    we break in turn as the communion of the blood & of the body of Christ at the

    Lord’s Supper. For we, though many, are one bread & one body, for we all

    partake of the one bread (1Cor. 10: 16-17). The incarnate truth is the only

    universal bread & body of Christ common to all to eat in unity in communion.                      

  1. By letter, it is symbolized by believe in & follow or imitate Jesus (John 6:35).
  2. Who-ever lacks knowledge of the purpose for the meal & faithfulness of

    our oneness in Christ eats the Last Supper unworthily (1Cor. 11:27-31).

  1. It is only by the knowledge of the truth that we all may be one, sanctified by

    the word of God (John 17:16-21). This was Jesus’ prayer to God for us.

  1. Thus the church of Christ personifies: the way (through His flesh), the truth

    (which is the body) and the life (which is of Christ).

  1. Grace & truth are the two pillars of our salvation and faithfulness to our

    oneness in Christ respectively.                                                                 WOW!

 

Characteristics: Every member of the church walks like Christ, consistent with First Century disciples (Acts 11:26). The church of Christ is the personification of the truth. The church guarantees eternal life being the will of God for those who follow and believe in Christ Jesus (John 6:38-40). The medium of practice is known as pure & undefiled religion according to (James 1:27). It brings out the purpose of service for which God created man for His glory (Is. 43:7). It was same service by Adam (Gen. 2: 8), by Israel after deliverance from Egypt onward (Ex. 8:1), and by those who believe and follow Jesus to this day (John 4:24). So Christianity is a peculiar religion contrary to being a relationship currently promoted by man. The worship today is by faith and sacrifices of the lips (Heb. 13:15). In addition, help the deprived in their trouble and do not love the world and the things in the world. Living like Christ transforms man to a living stone of truth being built up a spiritual house (1Pet. 2:5). Every disciple walks with anointing of the Holy Spirit who teaches and reminds him of all things (John 14:26), and etc.

 

For contents the church focuses its doctrine on the cross of Jesus (Gal. 6:14) and the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1Cor. 2:2). The cross crucified the world to mortality and saved all persons in situ. Conversely the cross crucified only those who believed to the world. By it God delivered them from power of darkness and conveyed them into the kingdom of Christ (Col. 1:13).

 

The church epitomizes godly morals. So only the word of God is revered. Every members are equal & are brothers & there is no difference (Gal. 3:28-29). No place for regulations and rules of men (Col. 2:20-23). All obey scripture to agree and speak with one voice (1Cor. 1:10) & to work in unity & care for one another (Acts 4:32-37).

Evidence that truth is the rock Jesus built His church. The testimony of instant death of Ananias & his wife Sapphira is a proof. They died for lying about how much they sold their possession (Acts 5:1-10). So the truth is both the foundation and the morals of the church of Christ. Also, Hymenaeus and Philetus strayed concerning the truth and overthrew faith of some in (2Tim. 2:17-18). Alexander and Hymenaeus backslide from faith and Apostle Paul delivered them to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme as per (1Tim. 1:20). So the church of Christ and desires of the flesh have nothing in common (2Cor. 6:14). This suggest people once saved can lose their salvation if their sidetrack is permanent. Also people once righteous can lose their righteousness as shown in (Ezek. 18:20).

It is those who believe and abide n Christ that nobody can plug out of His hands.

It may not be wrong to suggest that today’s Christianity is comatose. This is due to lack of attributes of truth, sound word and knowledge, and oneness required in the church of Christ. This originated when men introduced their curriculum to train and anoint ministers for the gospel against the word of God (1John 2:27). The result has been upsurge in dogmatism, exploitation of members, oratory, fables, etching ears, haughtiness, theater-like performance for praise worship, and etc. Others are doctrines of miracles, prophecy and wonders in the name of the Lord, which could be work of iniquity or lawlessness (Mt. 7:21-23). It is not surprising because scripture predicted it (2Tim. 4:3-4).

 

Today you have been reminded of what God means by grace in Episode 1. Also clarified in Episode 2 is the church Jesus founded on foundation of truth. Tell them to your church members, contacts, and etc. and shame the devil. Would you like to be a PartnerDo it as part of evangelism for the glory of God. To know the truth and grace according to God is too important to over-look and not to share.
