The Church is a new creation that makes part of a new creation:

  • “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. And the sea no longer is.” (Revelation 21.1).

Many times we are living the New Testament at the same way that Israel lived the Old Testament. Unless that we change our attitude, the lean is to come about as shown below:

  • “I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.” (Proverbs 5.14).

Unfortunately, people was inured to go the religion institution to fulfill rituals, instead of using the time to know each other better, to get close and intimacy with Jesus and, above all, to be ready to be used for Him (Luke 12.36).

Christians are so cling to their rituals that, if a panhandler, meanderer, drunkard, etc. comes into the religion institution, in place of welcoming them and each one ministering Jesus’ gift in their lives (psalm, teaching, tongue, revelation, etc. (1Corinthians 14.26), the spiritual leaders will oust them in virtue of they are disturbing the cult (and the worst: with total afforce of the members). Recall: the Church is a spiritual hospital (see Isaiah 14.32), where each member need to be prepared to the action of the Holy Spirit.

The Church doesn’t live on rituals, but of every Word that go out of Creator’s mouth *NOW* (Deut 8.3; Matthew 4.4; Luke 4.4). Jesus speaks with those who long for hearing Him and it is this Word that penetrates to the division of soul and spirit (Hebrews 4.12), restoring our innermost being.

So, let's worship Jesus in His legitimate tabernacle, to wit, in the hearts of those who, with a pure heart, summon up Him (2Timothy 2.22; 2Corinthians 3.1-3; 1Peter 2.5-8).

Have a day thoroughly new in Christ Jesus.
