The True fellowship that reveals the true nature of God in our individual lives and in the congregation as a whole.
How can this be?
1 John 1 V 3-7 NKJV
3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
4 And these things we write to you that [a]your joy may be full. Fellowship with Him and One Another
5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Light reveal while darkness conceals. God is light and anyone that will come to manifest the true nature of God must first come out of the dark and consciously enter into the light of God.
Ephesians 5:13 GNT
And when all things are brought out to the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed;
It is natural to hide our sinful nature but In God there is no Hiding of anything. Instead of hiding our sins and remaining in the dark, we can come to God with an open arm to accept our sinful nature to that we can denounce that sinful nature and accept the true nature of Christ.
Luke 9: 23-24
23 And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
24 “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it.
Do you wish for come after Jesus? There is only 1 thing to do: Come to Jesus with all your baggage and dump them before the Lord, He will forgive you. Then denounce that nature, which is the producer of sin, it is the flesh. As you continually denounce the sinful nature, you will be able to carry your cross and follow Jesus.
May the Lord expand His Word in your Heart In Jesus name.
Following from last week's message, brokenness as a prerequisite for the coming revival. God is inferring on our hearts what is means to be broken and the practicality of it in our daily walk in Christ Jesus.
First we look at 1 john 1vs 5-10: What I say I am VS What God says I am. Knowing and accepting our true standing with Jesus Christ will help us to seek God for HOW to move forward in the RIGHT way. This seeking marks the beginning of our humbleness, which is a place God can mercifully lead us in His LIGHT
1 Timothy 1:18 - "this charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare"
The word of God was spoken to the church, pointing to the place where personal revival by God can be ignited and fully experienced. This revival is initiated by God and we need our hearts that are broken (as individuals) in order to perceive what it is God intends to do in this generation and the coming generations.
We are encouraged to give give ourselves up for personal brokenness in Christ, that we may live in true honest and long lasting "personal experience of God in our lives and leading us to that place of personal revival in Christ.....
We want to share with you the word of God to us from our meeting. For the word of God is light onto our path, a lamp unto our feet..
