Who Is in Charge and What the Church Is Not

Jim shares a short, but powerful message on this week’s Torah portion (Terumah) and reveals one of the most incredible hidden messages in the original Hebrew of Proverbs 30:4-6. (PFT Fellowship 2-5-11)

Here is an image portraying what Jim Staley is talking about in the video above from Proverbs 30:4-6 in the original Hebrew.

Here are a couple of other images summarizing a really long study tracking Hebrew names to their common English derivations.  There were no J’s back then – that is a recent innovation.

Now that we know a little about who is in charge, let’s talk about our role.  If we are His body here on earth (and I believe we are if we have believed into Him), then we should know what we are and what we are not. For many years I have thought that He often contains (or restrains) Himself based on what we think and do and say. It is not that He cannot do anything that He wants to do, but He has His ways and His goal is for us to come into harmony with Him. Thus He waits patiently for our proper call. As long as we are distracted and busy doing other things, we are clearly not busy doing His work and inviting His presence in our midst.  We must seek Him to find out what that entails.

This week I got an email from a friend, named Kit Pharo on “What the Church is Not.”  He is doing a whole email series on what the church is not. His initial list is below:

The Church is NOT:

  • a man-made building
  • a man-made denomination
  • a set of man-made doctrines
  • for unbelievers (non-Christians)
  • a social club or gossip center
  • an entertainment center
  • an event that has a dress code
  • a place to drop off your kids
  • a place where large crowds sit in rows staring at the back of someone else’s head
  • an organization with a distinction between clergy and laity
  • an event that must start at a specific time on a specific day
  • a substitute for individual Bible study and prayer
  • the only place you should act Christ-like
  • a 501.c.3 organization
  • an organization that is based on anyone other than Jesus Christ
  • headquartered here on earth

I [Kit] ask that you pray for God’s wisdom and guidance as we go through this series.   May we all be enlightened by God.   May we all be willing to submit to God’s will – and may God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

As Kit says, “Don’t just GO to church; BE the Church”

If you want to see more on this topic, please drop him a note asking to be added to his devotional email list here: Email: Kit@PharoCattle.com and/or visit his website for more information: www.PharoCattle.com

So please join me in seeking Him and finding out what we need to do NOW!

PLEASE NOTE:  I will be reopening the FGST email list and sending periodic transmissions to it via Constant Contact.  If you want to be on that list you may subscribe/unsubscribe here.  The anticipated volume for FGST is 1-4 per month and it is whatever I think is important enough to send out.  I only want to be in touch with people who really want to hear from me so opt in or out any time for any reason.  The same form gives you the option to sign up for OKGrassroots (Oklahoma political) and CLibertyC (multi-state/library project) as well.
