FOR WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED TOGETHER...
IN MY NAME... I AM THERE IN THE MIDST OF THEM.... MATTHEW 18:20.
WHO WILL BE THERE?... HOW MANY GO????
Lord Jesus the Christ is omniscient as well as omnipotent and
omnipresent this in itself shall be a great comfort to the holy remnant in the end
.. Romans 11:3-5.
After fifteen years of tending sheep, a preacher gets to hear and see some rather unusual
sights and stories. The most common question asked when people find you have a church is
.. how many go to your church?.. who will be coming? . . how many attend in the
Discernment says to me that these people are not honest with themselves and are
by no means walking by faith. Jesus being omniscient said that if there be two or three of
you gather together in My/Jesus name, He will make it a point to be there but it is
obvious that the large majority do not believe what Jesus says. Some of the largest
religious denominations in this city and nation do not even bother to plant churches or
hold church services till they either have a certain number of people or the finances are
They do not believe that where two or three gather in His name that He will attend the
meet. We must also understand that most church goers aren't looking out for Jesus on
Sunday anyway, their minds are elsewhere.. Ecclesiastes 5:1.
As one precious sister said to my wife, the Pentecostal church she was attending before
she came to J.T.C.M.. was so bogged down in jealousy, covetousness and competition the
women used to try to out do each other in the attirement realm each Sunday and this was
the feature of the day ..yet the holy scriptures say flee such rot. Clothe thyself in
humility and again let not a womans beauty be that outward adorning of arranging the
hair or wearing gold or putting on fine apparel .. quote/1 Peter 5:5,1 Peter 3:3 ....
The Laodecian church spoken about in the book of revelation is a perfect example of
numbers, wealth, fine apparel and abundant earthly goods but the Lamb was locked out of
the meeting. When the Lamb is in the meeting it seems like you are in the midst of the
multitude for He is the majority. His presence fills all gaps, His joy fills to
overflowing and His implant-ed word overtakes all walls, barriers and hindrances ..Zechariah
I want to leave all the faithless, the unbelieving, and the masses who are deceived into
thinking that Jesus is where the multitudes are with this one verse from the holy book ..and
after He had left the multitude they took Him along in the boat as He was and other little
boats were also with Him. It was the little boats that followed Jesus not the
multitude .. Mark 4:36.
The captain of this little boat/J.T.C.M ... says to Australian churches ..why are you so
fearful?.. how is it that you have no faith???
