Where Is His True Church?

Hi R____,

Thank you for your question. The very act of incorporating under the guidelines required by our government to become a legal, tax free corporation with bylaws and a statement of beliefs, necessitates that you are separated from the spirit of God.

No New Testament church was incorporated under the Roman government. Being in Christ is not a matter of incorporation. You cannot issue a ‘statement of beliefs’ that does not leave out 99% of God’s Word. God’s entire Word is my ‘statement of beliefs.’

You cannot publish a set of by- laws that does not leave out the spirit of God. God’s Words are my by- laws. Every incorporated church in our nation and around the world has some man who is the CEO and head of that church in a legal way. Jesus Christ is my head and CEO. All New Testament churches were in people’s homes. No one ever even thought of ‘going to church’ as we think of it today. The earliest Christians knew “ Ye are the temple of God.”

Rom 16:5 Likewise greet the church that is in their [ Priscilla and Aquila’s] house
1Ti 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church [ the people] of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

When Paul wrote these words, things were not as they are today. The thought of a church building, and the millions of dollars that go into such edifices, never once entered Paul’s mind. Taking up a collection of needed items and food to help his brothers did enter Paul’s mind. Incorporating and building millions of dollars on physical plant was the last thing in the world that should ever have been done. And yet it is big business today. And that is exactly what it is, big business.

And I haven’t even touched upon what these ‘Christian, Nicolaitan, Jezebel corporations teach. But I will deal with one verse of scripture:

Isa 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah [ This is the “Is, was and will be,” way of saying ‘God’s people,’ even today] the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water.

So to answer your question directly, God has taken all of His word away from these corporations who masquerade as His representatives.

Isa 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

This is addressed to “Judah and Jerusalem.” That is an “Is, was and will be” way of saying God’s fallen people. This is not speaking of a physical harlot. Neither is it speaking of physical murder. It is speaking of a people who are unfaithful to the Word of their God. It is speaking of spiritual leaders who rob God’s people of any hope of spiritual life. It is this very verse from the Old Testament that gives this verse in the New Testament its force and power:

Rev 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

It “is, was and [ always] will be” God’s own people who will kill His witnesses. This killing is as figurative as the language in Isaiah. But all spiritual and figurative language always has a physical outward fulfillment also; hence all those who have been physically murdered by those who “think they do God a service.” But the outward pales into insignificance in comparison to the inward spiritual genocide within God’s church at the hands of so- called ministers and spiritual leaders.

Mat 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites [ the church leaders of Christ’s day and today’s church leaders]! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

That is the effect of today’s incorporated legalized churches. Here is what Christ says is all they accomplish:

Mat 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Do these churches think this is what they are doing? Of course not. They are “compassing heaven and earth to make millions more proselytes.” Here is how these churches feel about the lies they are espousing to the world:

Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods [ have the Truths of God’s Word], and have need of nothing; [ But what is the Truth of their spiritual condition?] and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind [ to the Truth], and naked:

It is their function in God’s plan to bring billions to Christ. But the great deception is that then it is their function to keep them from ever maturing. That is the purpose of all the incorporated churches. They “bring you to Christ,” but then they see to it that you remain “a child,” a “carnal… babe in Christ,” “no better then a servant.”

Gal 4:1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
Gal 4:2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
Gal 4:3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world [ the doctrines of these incorporated churches in direct contradiction to the words of Christ]:

Paul reveals the Adversary’s tactics in his letter to thebCorinthians:

1Co 1:1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 1Co 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

These Corinthians, just like every one of the churches mentioned in the first three chapters of Revelation, are “sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints.” But as Christ pointed out repeatedly, there is a vast spiritual gulf between the “many called [ and the] few chosen” out of those ‘called.’ So what is the best that can be said of these “many called?”

1Co 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carna l, even as unto babes in Christ.
1Co 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
1Co 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
1Co 3:4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am ofnApollos; are ye not carnal?

I hope this helps you to see why God’s faithful people cannot be part of the religious system of our day. If the churches of today were not carnal, if they could “bear to hear the things of the spirit,” then I would recommend that you attend an orthodox church. But they are not and I cannot give that recommendation. God’s faithful are “few and scattered,” but they are ‘out there’ scattered all around the globe. Be sure to read Strong Delusion. It will show you in more detail how “that old serpent the Devil and Satan has deceived the whole world.” This statement, like every statement in God’s Word, is an “is, was and will be” Truth.

You ask:

There is a “church in the house of” Mike Vinson in Flowery Branch, Georgia. We meet every week. You are welcome to come to that ‘church’ if you want to and can. There is also a “church” in Mobile, Al. and I’m sure numerous others around the world of which I am not even familiar. Where two of more are gathered in His name (acknowledging His sovereignty and the truth of His Word, guided by His Spirit) He is certainly there.

If you live in any where near Mobile, you can meet with the group that meets at the home of Bettie Rogers. If you live near Houston, Tx, you could meet with the group in the home of Susan Dalton. If you live near Indianapolis, you can meet with Steve Crook or Aaron Lohmann. I’m sure there are other small groups meeting and sharing knowledge of the word of God. Of course, we hold bible conferences several times during the year throughout the country that give the scattered brethren a chance for wonderful fellowship. God will guide you to fellowship if you earnestly seek it in prayer. And of course, I’m just a phone call away if I can be of any help answering questions.

These are the people I know who know and teach the truths of God’s Word which you read of on my site.

If any of these interest you, let me know and I will put you in touch with that group. They may already be listed on the web site on the home page or on the ‘Fervent Fellowship’ page.

Mike
