THE CHURCH IS THE GREAT FORCE OF GOD UPON THE EARTH.
We have seen forces upon the earth, but the church is the greatest force of God upon the earth. No one can battle with the Lord. We must be awaken to who we are in Christ. The church is built strongly upon the foundation of Christ.
Jesus said to Peter when he said to Jesus that thou art Christ, the Son of the living God and upon this that was just revealed to you will I build My church and the gate of hell shall not prevail against it. He will build His Church upon it. So that means Christ is the foundation that the church is built upon. Let’s see where Jesus said that.
Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: FOR FLESH AND BLOOD hath not REVEALED IT UNTO THEE, BUT MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.
16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, AND UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH; AND THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT.
Jesus is the foundation that the church stand upon or is being built upon. God’s people are great force of God upon the earth. Nothing can destroy the people of God upon the earth, God’s kingdom can not be destroyed. The gate of hell can not prevail against the church of God. Daniel saw this vision.
Daniel 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the SON OF MAN came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: HIS DOMINION IS AN EVERLASTING DOMINION, WHICH SHALL NOT PASS AWAY, AND HIS KINGDOM THAT WHICH SHALL NOT BE DESTROYED.
God has given Jesus Christ the dominion over all things, and it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell.
Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
We even saw that, in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
And the scriptures makes it clear that we are like Christ or Christ’s.
Galatians 3:29 AND IF YE BE CHRIST’S, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Galatians 5:24 AND THEY THAT ARE CHRIST’S have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
And we are joint heir of God with Jesus Christ.
Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
8:17 And if children, then heirs; HEIRS OF GOD, AND JOINT-HEIRS WITH CHRIST; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Jesus received a more excellent name by inheritance, so as an heir of God and joint-heirs with Christ, we partake of that excellent name, because we are partakers of Christ.
Hebrews 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he HATH BY INHERITANCE OBTAINED A MORE EXCELLENT NAME than they.
Hebrews 3:14 FOR WE ARE MADE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
There are so many things the church is made of in Christ Jesus. So the church partake of that excellent name with Christ. He’s not ashamed to make us partakers of it and to call us brethren.
Hebrews 2:11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: FOR WHICH CAUSE HE IS NOT ASHAMED TO CALL THEM BRETHREN,
The church of God is a great force of God upon the earth and all that Christ is, He gave or made the church to be too.
Ephesians 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to THE CHURCH,
1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
Believers are great force of God upon the earth. They are! When Elijah the ANOINTED(Please note that word anointed) of God said that he was the only prophet left, God told him there are seven thousands that He has kept for Myself. Let’s see.
1 Kings 19:14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy PROPHETS WITH THE SWORD; and I, EVEN I ONLY, AM LEFT; and THEY SEEK MY LIFE, TO TAKE IT AWAY.
19:15 And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
19:16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
19:17 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
19:18 YET I HAVE LEFT ME SEVEN THOUSAND IN ISRAEL, ALL THE KNEES WHICH HAVE NOT BOWED UNTO BAAL, AND EVERY MOUTH WHICH HATH NOT KISSED HIM.
Romans 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
11:2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,
11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; AND I AM LEFT ALONE, AND THEY SEEK MY LIFE.
11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I HAVE RESERVED TO MYSELF SEVEN THOUSAND MEN, WHO HAVE NOT BOWED THE KNEE TO THE IMAGE OF BAAL.
11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
Now, this is it, believers are more than they appear, for a single believer, there are over seven thousands of them, now you can’t count the rest of God’s people if that’s the way it is with God. God’s people are inherently built in Christ. Yet we know that one person will chase a thousand and two a ten thousand. God people are many yet looks few.
Nothing can prevail against the people of God. The Psalmist said
Psalms 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people IMAGINE A VAIN THING?
2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and AGAINST HIS ANOINTED, SAYING,
Remember that word anointed, it is against God’s anointed. This is the plan.
Psalms 2:3 LET US break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
That’s the plan against God’s people. It is a proud thought. To break their bands asunder, and to ensure their cords are broken. With this plans see what God did, He’s not moved…
Psalms 2:4 HE THAT SITTETH IN THE HEAVENS SHALL LAUGH: the LORD shall have them in derision.
He laughs because He is the God of knowledge.
1 Samuel 2:3 TALK NO MORE SO EXCEEDING PROUDLY; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: FOR THE LORD IS A GOD OF KNOWLEDGE, and by him actions are weighed.
All things and all plans are made naked before His eyes because He is the word and God of knowledge.
Hebrews 4:12 FOR THE WORD OF GOD is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and IS A DISCERNER OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE HEART.
4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: BUT ALL THINGS ARE NAKED AND OPENED UNTO THE EYES OF HIM with whom we have to do.
Nothing can be done against the church of God. What the church need to do is to ask of those nations from the Lord. Jesus said to ask and whatsoever we ask, we receive.
Matthew 7:7 ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
7:8 FOR EVERY ONE THAT ASKETH RECEIVETH; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Now, God said
Psalms 2:8 ASK OF ME, AND I SHALL GIVE THEE THE HEATHEN FOR THINE INHERITANCE, AND THE UTTERMOST PARTS OF THE EARTH FOR THY POSSESSION.
2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
Let’s see the verse eight in The Living Bible
“Only ask and I will give you all the nations of the world.”
That’s what will be done by Christ through His Church. The church is the great force of God upon the earth. We need to ask of God nations where they do not know God, nations in scriptures a lot of times refer to people, and we must receive such lands or people for the Lord, the harvest is near. Receiving all the terrorist for the Lord in prayers because the time is near when all men will come to the mountain of the house of the Lord. For that is where the help of nations will come.
Isaiah 2:1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Oh we receive nations right now for the Lord as the force of God upon the earth, we receive them as an inheritance, we receive the highest and lowest terrorist ever known upon the earth right now for the Lord, we receive and call upon nations to come to the house of the Lord, we receive them in multitudes until they become like a great host of God, we receive them right now, even to be filled with the knowledge of God and to be great lovers of God, we thank You because you have given them us right now. Amen.
