How Does The Church Function In Ten Steps?

THE CHURCH IS ENGINEERED TO MANIFEST GOD’S GLORY

Eph 3:21 to Him be glory in the church in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

The church is the principal and uniquely created divine institution who can manifest God’s glory! None other on the earth can.

THE CHURCH IS THE REPRODUCER OF HEAVEN’S BLUEPRINTS

Heb 8:5 who serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, just as Moses had been warned when he was about to complete the tabernacle, for He says, “See, you shall make all things according to the pattern shown

The church is created to reproduce the realities of God which are in heaven upon the earth.

THE CHURCH IS THE FULLNESS OF GOD

Eph 1:22 And He subjected all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church,

23 which is His body, the fullness of Him filling all things in all.

The fullness of God is the essence, the reality, and attributes which are required, to make God, God, exclusive of anything else in the universe.

THE CHURCH GIVES EVIDENCE TO WHO GOD IS

Exo 25:22 And I will meet with you there, and I will talk with you from above the mercy-seat, from between the two cherubs on the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give you in commandment to the sons of Israel.

The church has the ability to declare Christ Jesus with sufficient evidence so that world’s jury can accept or reject Him.

THE CHURCH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST

Eph 1:22 And He subjected all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church,

23 which is His body, the fullness of Him filling all things in all.

In the human body every member knows what their functions are, and hold themselves accountable to do them.

They do not take glory and work at peak performance.

Every member is active, and it is correspondingly offensive and defensive in their roles.

THE CHURCH IS THE CONTAINER OF ALL THAT GOD IS, HAS, AND WANTS TO DO.

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ,

The church is the receptacle in which all that God is, has, and wants to do, is funneled into!

THE CHURCH IS FITLY FRAMED TOGETHER

Eph 2:21 in whom every building having been fitly framed together, grows into a holy sanctuary in the Lord;

“Fitly framed together” relates to the building of the church through people’s spiritual gifts.

Each person works at a peak level of Spirit led performance.

Every joint of supply is each person effectively supplying the revelation of Jesus Christ.

The revelation of Christ is limited to the energy put forth by the quantity and quality of the “measure of supply” through each person’s spiritual gifts.

This revelation allows for the church to grow up into Jesus Christ in all things.

Growing up into the revealed Christ allows the people within church to achieve the same maturity that Christ has in the very thing that they grow fully into Him in.

No other institution can do this!

THE CHURCH IS KNIT TOGETHER

Col 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement (full and precise knowledge) of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ.

The knitting together comes as the members of the church are “fitly framed together” into a proper building through their giftings.

This will bring the church into the spiritual riches that are created by the confidence of fully understanding the accurate revelation of Christ. This is the full assurance of understanding.

THE CHURCH ALLOWS PEOPLE TO GROW INTO CHRIST

Eph 4:15 but speaking the truth in love, we may grow up in all things into Him who is the head–Christ;

The church allows for people to grow into Christ in all things.

The more revelation of the Christ, the more that the church can grow up into Him.

When Christ is not being revealed, the church grows up into things instead!

THE CHURCH IS A MAN

Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

The church is the man, Christ Jesus, which internally the church grows into, and externally in the world she draws all people unto the man, Christ Jesus.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS

Spiritual gifts propel Christ and His riches externally outside of the church.

The saints are the element in which God’s invisible riches are deposited through His mysteries, energized by His Spirit, and made known as visible riches by glory to the world.

Praise is produced through people back to God as His glory is manifested through the saints by spiritual gifts.

THE CHURCH IS THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY

Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

Church leaders must not only reveal the mystery of Christ, its dispositions and arrangements, but also teach others how to take part, or fellowship in it.  This is the fellowship of the mystery.

HOW THE CHURCH FUNCTIONS IN 10 STEPS?

  1. God funnels all that He has, into the church by means of His riches.
  2. The riches are in a mystery form inside of Christ.
  3. Mysteries are the doctrines of God’s heavenly patterns of His kingdom, and counsels
  4. As Christ is revealed, these riches are revealed along with Him.
  5. The fullness of God is the revealed Christ.
  6. The revealed Christ becomes the object of the church.
  7. The church grows into the revealed Christ in all things.
  8. The external growth of the church is to propel this revealed Christ in His invisible riches outside of the church via spiritual gifts.
  9. The church then becomes a center of revival in the community where it is placed.
  10. Praise is produced through humanity back to God as His glory is manifested through the church.
