02 April 2023: FOUR KINDS OF CHURCHES (1) – Matthew 16:18-19

God told me that the fulfilment of a believer’s destiny starts only when he or she becomes a part of the Body of Christ through the local church. There are four ways through which a church can evolve, but only one is right.

1. AN EMPIRE: This is the first kind of a wrong church which emerges from the decision of a man to start a church God hasn’t sent him to start. This could be a result of personal ambition or identifying a need.

Maturity may help identify a need, but it is God’s calling upon a man that equips him or her to meet that need.

This may also manifest when someone with great natural abilities assumes he is better than the man called by God. When a man starts this kind of church, it is an empire, and it will be a fraud that lacks the backing and authentic power of God.

2. A CLUB: This is a church founded by a group of people that decide to do something for God. An example is the tower of Babel. When people decide to have a church for God without the Lord’s authorisation, they would have a club. It could have the semblance of a church and a collegiate spirit but will lack a father’s voice and it will not be a church supported by God.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive the truths You are showing me this month concerning my church membership in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Deuteronomy 21:1-22:30; Luke 9:51-10:12; Psalm 74:1-23; Proverbs 12:11
