Expect In Our Home Churches
The “Name” of Jesus is all about His AUTHORITY. The scripture reference “where two or three are gathered in My name” is all about carrying out Christ’s authority in the churches.
Minister (Pastor) Clark
Believing the Word of Prophecy spoken from the Lord Jesus Christ during three decades and in multiple states of the U.S.A. to Minister Clark, saying …
“I’m doing a new move in the earth. You won’t be able to comprehend it with your mind. The ways I’m using are not the familiar – NOTHING – you’ve been taught. You have to seek Me for the completely unfamiliar ways that I am doing. You must follow your spirit – not your mind. And stay in My Word, My Word, My Word! And … “I AM judging Pastors in my next move — so keep yourself from all forms of self-promotion”.
Spoken by the risen Jesus Christ between 1991 and 2000 to Minister Clark
Home Church: Worship or Just Fellowship?
Depends … “A Home Church” is Church and not just fellowship IF …
Repented persons gathering in a home to meet with and listen to Jesus! Done under CHRIST’S AUTHORITY through His anointing upon a Pastor sent by Jesus.
If there is no Pastor, then any gathering pertaining to Jesus is only a fellowship group. The “Name” of Jesus is all about His AUTHORITY. The scripture on “where two or three are gathered in My name” is all about carrying out Christ’s authority in the churches.
42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,
21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
40 And they went out of the prison, and entered into the house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.
5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my wellbeloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.
19 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.
In 1999, Christ Jesus commanded me that Truth Seekers of Jesus Christ/Truth Seekers Church is to meet only in members’ homes and, except for evangelism, I do convene only in my home and other members’ homes since 1999.
Your Rights As A Child of God
Repented persons gathering in a home to listen to Jesus under the AUTHORITY and anointing of the Pastor is, certainly, more legitimate than gathering in a home to have a Tupperware or Pantry Party, or a man-huddle meeting :).
Choosing to meet at your home or another’s home to be changed by the Words from Jesus Christ is, absolutely, more your right than doing it to introduce and listen to a political candidate for the Democratic, Republican, or other party!!!
Home Church is an environment focused on the message heard and on gaining more close-knit families. We do need an environment that keeps families together in learning Jesus Christ, just as they all remained together listening to Him in the beginning of the “Church”.
It was a boy in attendance with the adults who could offer his five loaves and two fish for the miracle to happen! Children do hear Jesus speaking by the Gospel and obey!
Did We Sin In Building Construction?
Jesus IS with us in the old methods. Weekly convening in a sort of “temple” — be it an auditorium, coliseum, convention center, or campus, etc. is how we ALL got saved and grew in The Lord, Jesus Christ! In these wonderful places He — turned us to repentance from our sins and saved us; gifted us with miracles that healed our bodies from what science could not do; delivered us from tormenting invisible spirit beings and their curses. All praises to Jesus Christ – the Pre-eminent power in every realm!!! Blessed and only POTENTATE.
While Jesus has shown himself strong in our behalf under the methods we are all familiar with, He is telling my spirit through “the ears He has given me to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to the churches” … it is time to move on. We must move on to “unfamiliar methods” that allow us to keep Satan off the important things — The Gospel and the people. We must move out from methods that stress Pastors and enable weak harvest! WE MUST SEEK HIM FOR THE, COMPLETELY, UNFAMILIAR METHODS HE IS USING, NOW.
How Devotion To A Building Project Can Become Our Worship
The old pattern of receiving collections and planning a budget for building a kind of temple to worship in has been man’s own doing. The Lord Jesus has, lovingly, worked with us in this method because He will always honor our faith. Yes, I believe He gave instructions for some to do it, as they pursued a home for God’s people — through faith and love!
However, Satan has used our love for Jesus against us — through the old method of building programs and all that goes with it. Satan has turned us pastors into CEOs instead of Shepherds — complete with all Satan’s troubles, fretting and fears. Worse, we are exposed to unexpected temptations that touch our flesh and, therefore, our worship in ways totally unnecessary! (1 Cor 7:35, John 14:27).
- Temptation to pride and vainglory for being Executives, Presidents, and CEOs versus humble friends strengthening each other (John 15:15)
- Temptation to lust after positions and paid services that come with administering a building growth plan versus preoccupation with being brethren (Matt 20:25-28).
- Temptation to distraction in serving the Lord by becoming organizers versus loyal preachers (Acts 6:2).
- Temptation to serve the IRS and cater to their identity for us and our work, versus “waiting upon the Lord Jesus” for both, identity and work assignment.
Home Church Intimacy With Jesus and One Another
Presently in America, the FIRST thing anyone asks when you tell them you are a Pastor is — “Oh, where is your church”? The FIRST thing anyone says when you tell them you are a member of a church is — “Oh where is your church”? The FIRST thing we all think of when thinking about any church is —
“Where is IT”?
There is NO thought, care, questions or interests in what is JESUS SAYING? What is JESUS DOING?
Our focus must move to INTIMACY — with God and fellow Christians. To accomplish authentic INTIMACY with God through Christ, will require different wine skins (methods) to drink of His Holy Spirit power! (Luke 5:37-39)
AUTHENTIC INTIMACY produces the “fruit of holiness” which we know is happening in one another because we, actually, “know” everyone in the room and are involved in each other’s Christian walk?
In the intimate environment of home churches, Christians greatly mature through responsibility for one another and accountability to one another. We are exposed to each other’s sincerity about loving Jesus Christ. Some can’t handle the closeness of Christian family and prefer the old methods that enable us to hide — from one another … and from ourselves.
I am convinced, by the Lord, that “Home Church” intimacy is the new face that Christ Jesus is exposing the world to when they think of “Church”.
