A GLORIOUS CHURCH

by Seeley Kinne

When the Lord, by the power of His Spirit, established “The Church,” it was the most glorious institution ever known on earth. In it was seen an exhibition of the manifold wisdom of God. His power was manifested though His manifest presence, and imparted ministry gifts and miracle working acts of God.

Those who became members did so by a mighty act of God alone, through an act of “regeneration” by the Holy Spirit.

“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit.” Titus 3:5

These were translated out of the kingdom of Satan into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. Men and women who had been deeply steeped in idolatry, now delighted to become worshippers of the true God.

The kingdom of Satan was shaken as by a mighty earthquake. With consternation, demons retreated; for if this invincible moving of God continued, they soon would have no place left in which to exercise their dark power.

God’s love amongst this “Holy Company” of believers was so manifest that they were of one heart and one soul. Selfishness was drowned in sweet accord, through abiding love and consideration one for another. So bright and clear was the light of discernment that no dark hiding places remained. Ananias, Sapphira, Simon the sorcerer, Bar Jesus, and their like were exposed and kept at bay.
