I spoke to the church today out of Matthew 16:13-20 – “…And also i say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church…”
What is a church? Is it the building? Is it the pulpit? No! The church is the people. Before Christ, the church was a mystery. Christ had not yet come to establish the Kingdom of God. So therefore, before Christ the prophets were unaware of the church. The Lord had not revealed it to them because the Messiah had not come to remove the spiritual veil of communication from man to God. Due to the sin of Adam and Eve, there was a disconnection between the Spirit of God and man. But now, Jesus had come and died on the cross for our sins, thus washing us clean of all sin and giving us God’s Holy Spirit so that now man is connected to God through His spirit. No longer does man have to go through priest nor prophet to communicate to the Almighty God. Thus making us the church, the body of Christ, the Kingdom of God.
The church, as the body of Christ, is called to live in unity!
