Dear brothers and sisters‚Ä¶Christ is King of everything, every nation, every state, every city, and every man. Christ is King of His Church. Christ's CHURCH IS ESSENTIAL to individual Christians; the body of Christ as a whole; to our perishing neighbors; to our burning cities; to our lawless states; and to our demoralized, degenerate, disintegrating nation at large. No government, president, congressman, represenative, justice, judge, governor, or mayor can declare Christ's Church non-esstential!
"I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go into the house of the LORD.'" -Psalm 122
"And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching." -Hebrews 10:24-25
"Peter and the other apostles answered and said: "We ought to obey God rather than men." -Acts 5:29
*John Calvin rightly said: "Obedience to man must not become disobedience to God."
Praise God for This Pastor!!! I am thankful for pastors like this. Jesus said, "...when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" May God help us to be faithful to Him...no matter the cost.
