The Church in its present religious state, will never change the world's perception of the Christ we serve... but thanks be to God, He has a remnant sheltered in the palm of His hand. A people who were once not a people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a revolutionary people who have been adopted as heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ. Their status is uncompromising and their position is a surrendered heart in the presence of their Savior, the Lamb of God. I am talking about those whom He has called, justified and glorified (Rom 8:28-30).
Soon, perceptions will change, as the true worshipers, the remnant, who have their identity in Christ, will arise. These are the "no name brands", inspired by Jesus and filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, they shall be the ones who will demonstrate the goodness of God.
The time for individualism is over. No longer will the church follow the vision of one man, for the eyes of the remnant will see Jesus high and lifted up and their vision will be one. From the rooftops, men will declare this to be a new day, a new beginning, for the people shall see themselves as free. No longer bound and held captive by the words and interpretations of mere men, but they will be captivated by the divine plan and purpose of their God. With one heart, they shall take the kingdom of their God by force and the gates of hell will not prevail against them. These are the REDEEMED of the Lord!
This is the remnant that I am talking about. No building will house them, for they shall spill out onto the highways and the byways and their homes, synagogues, chapels and church buildings will become a sanctuary of praise where the presence of the Lord shall reign.
This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it...
