so real, it almost “looks alive”. To dead people, it looks alive enough to bereal, and they love it so. Dead lead by the dead. And as long as there is noprophet of God among them, they will remain dead, never suspecting thatthey are dead. They are comforted in their death by continually being toldthey are alive. Their numbers grow and confidence builds that gives them afalse sense of security in those numbers. Well, we know which road has the “numbers” on it, don’t we?So how do you know, how can you tell which “church” is alive, and which isnot? Millions across this land, and around the world, either consciously orsub-conciously would like to know the answer to this question. How do youknow that you know that you know, this is the real living organism?First of all, His Body has one head, not thousands of heads. The activities of all the parts of His Body are directed only by the Head. My fingers, in orderto be a functioning part of my body are attached to my body, and are neverseparated from my body, and they function only as directed by my head. Myfingers do not have a “mind of their own”, and they are quite content withthat. So it is with the parts of Christ’s Body. Each part does what Christ saysto do, and they love it so. They are quite content with that. Where the Bodygoes, all the parts go. None are left behind. And the Body works really welllike that. Each part of Christ’s Body does what they are directed to do byChrist alone. It’s called ……are you ready? It’s called…..OBEDIENCE. Eachpart obeys the Head, Christ Alone.Christ knows His Body parts, whether you and I do or not. He knows whobelongs to His Body and who does not.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
What does “doeth the will” mean to you? To me, it means that the fathergives the commands, and those who are His obey Him. I said, “THOSE WHOARE HIS
HIM”.My body parts do the will of my head because they are properly attached tomy body. The parts of Christ’s Body do obey His will because they areattached to His Body. Those who reject His will are “REJECTED” by Him, Hedoes not know them. And no wonder, they rebel against His commandmentsand do NOT DO His will!!!
