Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel

Destruction Of The Body Of The Church

I finally understand what two-edged sword means because I experienced it in action this morning. I stood up in meeting and spoke about George Fox. I related how he would send notice before entering a town or city inviting anyone who feared the Lord to come to meeting. People would come and he would speak truth to them, telling them about Jesus, their free teacher, their inward teacher, who is come to teach his people himself. The people who came, I said, were from churches with paid ministers and Fox would tell them their preachers were appointed by man, and not appointed by God and so were preaching the law of sin and death and were not feeding them truth. Fox was run out of town, beaten-- severely once--and put in prison, but he never gave up, I said. He never stopped preaching truth, I said; he never backed down.

That was all the Spirit gave me, so I sat down. It didn't take long for the bodies to start popping up to speak in opposition to the Quaker history I had shared. The first speaker even said that George Fox would not stick around people who wouldn't listen. I thought that telling. But speaker after speaker tried to mitigate the message. I praised the Lord, for recounting anything let alone George Fox had not been on my mind. I knew that my path forward would be His doing.

As I sat in meeting after all the mitigators shot off their guns, the Holy Spirit opened to me these things: The destruction of the Temple was really the destruction of the body of the church. The people rejected truth; without truth there is no unity. Quaker meetings with the passing of the original bodies (temples) of God's Church have been destroyed. Christ is come to rebuild his Temple. I saw this as plainly as some see a vision of the future. Last night I had prayed my Lord would make me his servant. This morning I became his servant and will be his servant. The members of the meeting are stymied, praise be to Him who was from the beginning and will be forever and ever.
