Below is a very encouraging word to all those who are working for revival in the Church and for major reform, with much of our work behind the scenes and often unrecognized, unappreciated, and ourselves hated and persecuted. To all those who are longing for God to bring His Church back to Himself and for Him to be the center of it, and the honored King of it, here is a word for you! (above paragraph by David Nelson)
Jesus will build His Church
Zechariah 6:12-13 Amp. “…Thus says the Lord of hosts: … behold (look at, keep in sight, watch) the Man [the Messiah] whose name is the Branch, for He shall grow up in His place and He hall build the [true] temple of the Lord.
Yes, [you are building a temple of the Lord, but] it is He Who shall build the [true] temple of the Lord, and He shall bear the honor and glory [as of the only begotten of the Father] and shall sit and rule upon His throne. And He shall be a Priest upon His throne and the counsel of peace shall be between the two [offices-Priest and King].
Matthew 16:18 “…I will build My Church…”
Psalm 127:1 “Except the Lord builds the house, thy labor in vain who build it…”
I believe the days of the one-man show are over.
1 Corinthians 12:14 “For the body does not consist of one… but of many.”
1 Corinthians 14:26 “ …each one has…”
1 Corinthians 12:20 “ And now there are many limbs and organs, but a single body.”
1 Corinthians 12:21 “And the eye is not able to say to the hand, I have no need of you, no again the head to the feet I have no need of you.”
I have need of the body. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, you have need of the body.
The Lord spoke this morning and said:
I will raise up My faithful servants-I say again servants, My Ephesians 4:11 servants and I will also raise up the “nobodys” (to the world,) but the “somebodys” to Me. They will execute My will, My plans and purposes.
They will come together as one man. They will gather and not scatter. They will unite into one body the children of God who have been scattered far and wide. They will love each other, serve and minister to the weak, afflicted and poor.
I will use them as instruments to build My Church. They will fully equip My people to also build up My body until all attain the fullness found in Me.
They will not take My glory, My honor, and My majesty upon themselves.
They will not take money, they will not take fame, and they will not seek great things for themselves. They will not seek to advance their own interests, but will advance Mine.
They will honor Me, exalt Me, magnify Me and direct and cause My people to gaze upon Me.
They will make Me King. They will come with a perfect and sincere heart and one mind to make Me Head of My Church.
They will be one with Me as We are one.
Zechariah 6:15 Amp. “…And [your part in this] shall come to pass if you will diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God.”
