The Church is the "...Ekklesia...", "..the Called out Ones...". By Grace we are saved.

Not by works lest any man should boast. We could never by our own righteousness make our way into heaven. Our righteousness is as filthy rags. When Adam was lonely, and it was not good for Adam to be alone God made Adam a help meet. ( Read Genesis 1 and 2 ). God put Adam to sleep. God took one of Adam s ribs and made Eve. Adam s Blood was shed. At Calvary, the Roman Soldier pierced the side of the Lord Jesus Christ . Blood and water came out of His side. The Second man Adam , the Lord Jesus Christ purchased His Eve, His Bride with His Blood. The Church are the Called out ones. They have been called out of darkness into His marvelous light. Just like Israel was called out of Egypt by an ordained prophet, in the FIRST EXODUS, God is calling out His Children out of JEZEBEL DENOMINATIONAL SYSTEMS into HIS WORD. ENOCH WALKED WITH GOD AND WAS NOT FOR GOD TOOK HIM. ( See Genesis Chapter 5 verses 23 to 25 ). IN NOAH S DAY, NOAH AND HIS FAMILY CAME OUT OF THE WICKED COSMOS SYSTEM OF THAT DAY AND WENT INTO THE ARK THAT WAS BUILT ACCORDING TO THE DIVINE SPECIFICATIONS SHOWED TO NOAH BY GOD. ( Genesis 6 ). IN THE DAYS OF LOT ABRAHAM WAS OUT OF SODOM. ABRAHAM DIDNOT GO INTO SODOM. ABRAHAM BY FAITH WAS CALLED OUT OF UR OF CHALDEES AND LOOKED FOR A CITY WHOSE BUILDER AND MAKER IS GOD. LOT WAS CALLED OUT OF SODOM. ( Genesis 19 ). IN THE DAYS OF MOSES THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE CALLED OUT EGYP T TO GO INTO THE PROMISED LAND. ( Exodus 12 ). THERE IS A CALLING OUT, A GOING INTO AND A GOING UP. The Church is not just a building made with stones. A bu ilding made with stones is a house of prayer. The Lord Jesus saves the sinner from their sins. He told the sinner woman in John Chapter 8 verse 11 : "...Go, and sin no more, lest a worse thing happen unto you..." . In John Chapter 8 Verses 1 to 11 we read : "....1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more..... . The sinner is saved by the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ to live a life that is justified and sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost. To follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man shall see God. Amen and Amen. The Lord Jesus Christ saves the sinner from their sins. There has to be a manifestation of Divine deliverance. There must be fruits worthy of repentance to show that the sinner has been converted from a life oif sin to live a life of holiness by the Grace of Almighty God. Amen and Amen. ....the gates of hell shall not prevail against the Church of the Living God.... . ( Matthew 16 verse 18 ). ....The Lord is good , a stronghold in the day of trouble ; and he knoweth them that trust in Him.... . ( Nahum 1 verse 7 ).
