The World is
not looking for more Preachers and Teachers. Churches are something
that various Christians and religious people relate to_ but not the
World. Jesus wants us to relate Him to those around us and afield in
Relevant Ways through Avenues of their Interests - things they can
Understand. This is achieved by SHARING ARTS & CRAFTS through
Talents you have and can seek Him for. YES!
Lord's wisdom in Speaking to People in Parables?
want to "be churched" they have told us that but we have
not heeded their voice. Maybe sometimes they're wiser because the
Church System as we know it today, was actually introduced
by Constantine for political advantage - he changed
the actual Early Christian way of doing things
into a State Institution.........and we have had this
problem ever since.
Christianity to People TODAY.
The world has
so many church buildings with church programs and such_ people are
invited and expected to come to them....and in the main, this has
achieved very little. Our seeming religious acts and
sometimes graces, have very little or no relevance to a lost and
aching community, seeking for answers; craving for real love;
searching for happiness but it does not last. Many look like they
have it all "together" but their personal lives tell a
is where LOVE, JOY and PEACE comes in - presenting God's Nature
through 'intelligible' ways in the community, the market place and
the world. Jesus wants to go out to them today - that was always His
Way. He never instructed them to go to a church (meeting place or
building). The Apostles never actually did that (believe it or not)
because the Christians of that day actually
met together in houses -
consisting of family, friends and fellow believers.
Rom 16:5,14 1 Cor 16:19 Col 4:15 we see this and in Acts 2:46-47
things were starting to go this way. The Apostles taught
them in the Temple for a time because there was not
any New Testament yet........
notice the spread and practice of Christian Living actually took
place in the homes........it was Family
Community? This is what takes place in many Non-Western
countries who hear the Gospel.......and their Christian Walk is
actually stronger than ours - because it's healthier - I've heard
this so many times!
our suprise, Family Worship in Homes was actually God's Pattern for
Levites actually went to their houses. Things changed only when
the Levites (not God) decided to make big meetings because it was
am I saying, not to go to a church? No, that is up to you.
simply saying that people in the world cannot relate to
it.....and....The Lord does not expect them to. That is not to
say He never uses it. Look at the difference Joel Osteen and
Joyce Myer have made in the lives of Christians and TV viewers
worldwide! And if you look at their message_ they're real words
coming from real people who radiate what it's really
like to know Jesus and live for Him.
like the Holy Spirit has restored Truths and Spiritual Gifts to the
Body of Christ (Believers) through the years, He is
NOW restoring Family Worship and Home
coming to Arts and Crafts - those things were important to say!
a difference to your community on the Home Scene......
Holy Spirit is raising up Evangelism in the Community, Market
Place and Media
One good thing in some churches - where Christians are community
minded has been Craft Groups or Cafes. But He is
further reaching than that_ what's to stop
you from starting a small Craft Group with the different types of
Crafts that are available now? Or you could start a Cooking and
Baking Group where you try different Recipes OR maybe even teach
certain skills in International Cuisine? People love to be
adventurous with meals these days and there
is a great interest in Recipes from different
countries. Whatever interests you the most that you ENJOY will be the
most contagious.....usually, it will have some appeal.
You can also be Gifted
for the Market Place.... bringing Godly Arts & Crafts
it.....not forgetting the influence they can have in your Home Craft
out to the Highways and the Byways....let them know through Your
the Holy Spirit is raising up Prophets and Evangelists who go out
among the people to speak into their hearts and and
bring Healings and Miracles, so they're no longer confined
within church walls or limited to great Christian
gatherings...... AND.....He is also raising up Life-Style
Evangelism where many Christians display GIFTED works of Art and
Crafts.......introducing and selling wares of CREATIVE and sometimes
very anointed Items. Bring GOD into the Market Place! There are
certain laws that prevent us from preaching there but we can bring
Him to people in other ways
will much more readily accept.
are certain ways we can reflect His LOVE, JOY and PEACE through
Photos, Paintings, Poems and Writings.... and.... certain Craft-wares
can reflect such BEAUTY or INTEREST that those who SEE THEM have to
know more! Sometimes, an anointed Painting has been used to transform
a person's life in some way OR draw them to SALVATION. Yes it's
true_ I have heard of a few stories like that through the years!
The Lord wants Spiritual Gifts out there - He ALSO wants Natural
Gifts out there!
warm people's hearts in ways that are relevant to them and be a
Brighter part of their world! Let them SEE that having a
Creator Father is a NICE way to Live!
