During this morning’s Prayer and Worship meeting, I kept hearing in my spirit – ‘the Church.’ At some point, I felt compelled to read Ezekiel chapter 37. After reading the first three verses or so, I got up and went to the back table in the Bob Jones Vision Center and sat to hear what the LORD had to say. Then I began to write the following to the Church of GOD – HIS Body.
the words lit up
As I read certain words, phrases, footnotes, and verses, certain verses jumped out at me as if the words lifted off the pages and hoover before me as if it was speaking directly to me. As I was captivated by what I was reading and seeing, again, I kept hearing that phrase – ‘the Church, O, MY Church.’
My GOD, what is my LORD speaking to me today? What is HE saying? What is HE trying to show me?
Well, let’s not get into that part this morning. But I want to share with you what the LORD showed me this morning in my reading in hopes HE will speak to you as well.
So, what I will do now is piece together only the parts of the verses the LORD highlighted to me and share anything else HE may give me so speak along the way.
you will live again
The word of the lord
When the LORD God gives a word, it is for the sole purpose to teach, reproof, correct, or train His servants - His Body, so that every member within the Body of Christ may be adequate, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17). For the LORD has given the Body of Christ apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers to equip the Saints for the work of service, to encourage one another, and to build up the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-12; 1 Thessalonians 5:11).
