Dear Moderators/Paul Reji (Dallas)
Appreciate your article. Let me point out one thing.
All baptized Chrisitians(RCC,IOC,SOC etc. are one
in Christ. Church is the body of Christ. IOC,RCC,SOC
etc, have been following double standard of worship
for many years.
(1) One is Bible teaching in which they teach what
Christ and apostles taught (or Biblical).
(2) Then there is traditional teaching(non biblical
Before teaching tradional things these churches start
with "OUR FAITH IS ...so and so. This phrase " OUR FAITH"
started in the 6th centrury. 90% of the people don't
realize the difference between what is Biblical teaching
and "OUR FAITH". They follow whater thir priests say. So
it is the duty of every true follower of Christ to
replace "OUR FAITH" by teachings of 'Jesus and apostles'
from our daily life. Then the body of Christ will appear
" beautiful bride" to the world and many gentiles will
"Concern for thrones of disciples in the present world"
is one of "OUR FAITHs". It was not Jesus or apostles"
teaching to rule the sheep sitting on thrones. Thrones
come into picture during millenium rule Jesus only
(Mathew 19:28), not now. Reward is received after the
job is done not before the job is complete.
We need to pull out weeds(non biblical teachings) in
order to have a 100 fold harvest in spiritual life.
6th-19th centuries 100s of weeds were planted in the
church's teaching (RCC and orthdox churches) by Satan.
Most of the teachings were fabricated in the name of
Jesus,God or saints giving false visions to people lived
during the time. Thanks to God, Holy Spirit killed most
of the weeds (false teaching). Now less than 30 weeds
exist. Holy Spirit will kill them and all denominations
will be true followers of Jesus.
Let us pray that the revival in the church continues
and all will fall at Jesus's throne. It is high time
that people relalize and await Jesus's second coming
to establish millenium rule where the 12 apostles will
rule from Jerusalem sitting on the 12 thrones. RCC,IOC
and SOC members will be under one throne because there
won't be split. IOC or SOC or RCC in Kerala would not
have an option to choose their favourite apostels as
their head. Rule will be with iron rod.
