Home Churches

Robbie L. Rogers

Over twenty years ago God disclosed to me that what we called Church would soon change drastically. Sound familiar? Yes some churches have already lost their buildings due to simply placing them behind them because the denomination they were aligned with no longer stood for the things they believed were essentially the truth. Nevertheless, many stay in churches that do not preach the Gospel and its truths. Rather they preach the reflection they see in the worldly mirror around them, staying even though they feel a tugging from Holy Spirit, they desire a unity of people rather that of Christ. When will they learn??!

We are fighting Satan.... not man. They, those being used by Satan call for dialogue, conferences, meaningful discussions, the need for unity... all for the purpose of distraction, for buying time, that their agendas may be pushed forward while pleading that good people remain silent in unity. Yet, what will the unified people say when they stand before Jesus as He says, "What did you do when they persecuted me?"

"He that is not with me is against me," Matthew 12:30

Still, today's struggle within the community of Christians is not what God disclosed to me would happen, it is simply the precursor to the events that will unfold in the very near future.

We will lose our church buildings and highly paid organizational structure because they are hindrances and must be shed in order to become the Church that Jesus will comeback to make as His Bride without spot or blemish. 

          

The very thing that we all seek, security, will be our downfall. We will seek the world's security and not that of Godís.

Some time soon we will find ourselves unable to speak the Biblical truth in public, including from the pulpits of believing Churches. In the near future the Bible will be removed from all libraries because it is judged by unrighteous men as a book that is spreading hate. We, those of us who believe in the truth of the Bible in its entirety will be branded or arrested for preaching hate. Hence, we subsequently will become an underground church, not physically underground but home bound and networked by a love of the Lord instead of the divisiveness of denominational bearers, somewhat like the church Jesus left us in charge of.

The church of the unbelievers will have the property and buildings instead of the believers, the great monuments, that were built by us is often if not in fact mimicking the world instead of the Way as led by Christ.

Those who have control of the churches will call themselves Christians, and only God can separate the sheep from the goats; but, readers of the book of Matthew if read and inwardly digested and guided by Holy Spirit know the true meaning and shall have no fear of the judgment, for they are already judged worthy by their actions and their love of the Lord. Those who are apostate in their beliefs, those who remain in the church of apostasy, will reap their own reward.

"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'

"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.' Then they also will answer, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?' Then he will answer them, saying, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.' And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." Matthew 25:31-46

Satan never has and never will come up to you and say, "Iíve come to steal your salvation." He is a liar and a thief. Ever so slowly he moves the world in the direction he wants, so that we are lulled asleep, like the frog in the pot filled with a warm cozy water. However, through the years Satan has moved the temperature up, gradually and soon it will be too late as we bask in our warm comfort; we may not even wake up to the fact that it is too late and we are cooked.

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Matthew 6:24

Already many nations in the world are moving in the direction of destruction to Christianity as we now know it. When did it begin? Some believe 1,700 years ago when the ruler Constantine converted to a dirty form of Christianity and made it the official religion of the Roman empire. Still, he kept worshiping others gods, supporting them and building temples, etc, during his reign. Before Constantine there were no big church buildings, or priests, or salaries to gobble up Godís tithe. Before buildings and the great bureaucracy buildup Godís tithe went where it should have gone, to help the widows, orphans, the poor, and each otherís needs. Please read:

Gradually the right became wrong; by looking at the world as an example they built the reflection they saw around them and the modern day church is the result.

Unfortunately, when most Christians leave the facilities due to denomination splits, or such, they immediately begin planning how to establish what they lost, except they want it to be free of the ways that they ran away from.

Running from the lion they seek shelter in the bear Without seeing the truth they strive to rebuild the same church and all that they came to recognize as their comfortable warm water pot, or pew to sleep in. By quickly striving to build a bigger better building to confront the previous people they once were part of they must consume vast quantities of money and talent. Yet, God will eventually see that it is all taken away.  Please read Bishops Kawashi's "From Maintenance to Missions" by clicking here.

Through Satanís efforts the true "Bible Teaching Churches" will be branded political organizations and the tax status that has enabled them to hold on to their property and expensive ways of organization will collapse.

"Scripture is undeniably clear that all who possess the indwelling life of the Risen Lord comprise the real Church. The natural implication of this glorious truth is that the church is a family whose members are joined together, organically connected, and inseparably related by Devine Life. One cannot join the church. If you are in Christ you are joined already and that by birth (rebirth)." Frank A. Viola

If you were part of the first century Christian Church you did not need to jump through religious hoops made up from manís imagination or from watching the world as it unfolds its true nature. You learned how to be a Christian by being disciplined by your brothers and sisters in the Lord.  You would become mature as a Christian by being part of an active and alive group of people who were held together by a common desire to serve the Lord and preserve the Way, as it was called then.  You ate together, you struggled together, you were a family of the Lord.  Although you and your kind were in the world you knew you did not belong to the world and as an alien you held little comfort in the things of the world, the things that others strived for.  In the "Church of Acts", you would not need insurance. The Body took care of each others needs. The believers beared each otherís burdens as an extended household, a shared life community.

The church should never be run like a business, rather it should be a loving family depending on one another, each working out their purposes as a whole. This sounds complicated, but it is in fact simple; we have made it difficult from years of creating what seems right in our eyes.

Instead of looking at what the Bible says about Church we have created a more easy to understand way of life. Live and let live.  All the while we have said those other people over there, those sinners who call themselves Christians are destroying the good name of the church.  Without seeing, we have the bigger splinter in our eye, and in turn they are busy doing the same thing saying, "I thank thee Lord I am not like that other man over there."

We all have done substantial damage to Christ's Church.  We all have much to repent from.  Please read "True Repentance"  by clicking here.

Even if a church has fabulous praise music and terrific speakers and great evangelic programs but is not a close family of believers who willingly pull their load and lovingly help others learn to do the same, they cannot be truly a Biblical Church in nature. Loving one another must be of paramount importance to the church or they are straying from the Bibleís teachings.

May the Lord deliver us from being hearers of the word and not doers. May we when the time comes be fully willing to walk away from the encumbrances of buildings and the American way of the Christian expression to the one that seeks true worship and repentance.

To this point I believe we shall, all true believers, see Home Churches as being the norm instead of strange; for I believe Jesus is waiting and watching for this to happen so He can come and find His true Bride and through His leading we will finally become without spot or blemish.

Let us return to a New Testament reality, one that says that if we belong to Christ then we belong to each other. Let us live as a household of God so that the words of our Savior may be fulfilled: "By this they shall know you are my disciples, that you love one another."
