GLORIOUS CHURCH - Part 4

While the Holy Spirit remained the originator, motivator, and the bringer forth of all activity, all was well. It was “exceedingly glorious.” But there came a change, almost imperceptible at first, yet growing and increasing. The voice of man again began to be heard in the Church. Man’s choosing pushed aside the will of God. Human government displaced that beautiful Divine Government, filled with sweetness and love.

Again, the earthly, sensual wisdom of man has crowded out the tender Divine wisdom. In the midst of Church growth, all too many of His followers have lapsed into institutions whose foundations are built upon the charisma of personality, and the creeds of man. So confusing and perplexing are these, that only God will be able to lead the way back to what He originally intended to bring forth through “The Church.”

God will deliver, and His purpose will yet be accomplished. His glorious Church shall yet arise. Rejoice, all who love the Lord, and come into His order, for the time is short.

“Awake, awake; put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: … Shake yourself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose yourself from the bands of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion.” Isaiah 52:1-2
