It does not belong to nor come under the authority of the UK. It is sovereign territory. So when we apply that to the Kingdom of God we can see that wherever we establish the Kingdom of God over a person , a home, a territory, we are declaring the sovereignty of God over that place or person.
That is why both John the Baptist and Jesus Himself began their ministries with the words. Imagine a young, very slender and quite small police woman driving her police car along the main road. She sees a huge powerful truck entering at fast speed, a one way street the wrong way against the flow of traffic. Fortunately there are no other vehicles using that road at that precise moment.
What does she do? The lorry is more powerful than her. It is huge and she is small. It could crush her without noticing if it ran her over. However she does not waver. Without hesitation she drives her car around the block to the other end of the one way road, parks it, gets out and proceeds to walk down the one-way street towards the fast approaching vehicle.
She can hear the roar of the powerful engine. There is a screech of breaks, a smell of burning rubber and the heavy vehicle shudders to a stop. You see, she knew her delegated authority and whom she represented…. Who then builds the Church and to whom does it belong?
Yes we do have a responsibility but our responsibility is to…. It belongs to Jesus. It is NOT ours! It is His responsibility. It is blood bought and blood washed. There are no mistakes, no ultimate failures. Jesus will do it!
It will take time for building takes time. It is a process and will be done according to a plan, Gods plan. The Father is the architect and Jesus is the builder. We assist Him as both the material and the co-workmen based upon the foundations of the Apostles and Prophets. Jesus is the master builder and owner of the Church. These are great choices but all these have been fulfilled. The prayer in the garden was fulfilled and Jesus took the cup all the way to the grave. The prayer on the cross for forgiveness was fulfilled and we are proof of that since we know that we are forgiven and saved.
Yet there is one prayer of Jesus that has never yet been fulfilled. It is the other prayer prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane or on His way there from the upper room. John 17 verses 21 and A prayer of intense agony of Spirit. For Jesus everything depends on the fulfillment of this prayer. If this is so then we too should be deeply concerned to see it happen. Why is this do you think? It is because He has a purpose for the Body of Christ, the Church, far beyond the purpose of establishing the Kingdom of God on earth.
It is because the Church is chosen to be His precious Bride. It is because the creation of the Bride is the purpose of creation and the central theme of Scripture. But the Bride of Christ, though corporate, cannot be plural. There is only one. Jesus does not have a harem.
He only has one Bride and if this Bride is the corporate body of believers then the essential characteristic of that Body is its unity, cohesion and interdependence. Firstly when He returns He will be. He will be looking for those who have a living faith in Him as the Saviour, and He looks across the whole earth. He sees it as one body of His Son. Secondly, it appears that scripture defines Church geographically or regionally and not denominationally.
Scriptural Rationale for this statement 1. The first mandate, the great commission, was geographical in nature. The letters of Paul were written to geographical or locational churches. The book of Ephesians, Romans, Galatians and the letters of Jesus in Rev 2 and 3 were also written to churches in geographical locations. Satan has organised his troops geographically also. In the previous reference Daniel v 13 10 the angel Gabriel was hindered by this ruling demonic spirit, referred to as the Prince of Persia, who exercised control over that region.
It is clear that Satan seeks to control personalities and exercise authority over territories. God exercises territorial authority but has delegated that to His highest creation, man. Satan has stolen and taken control of the kingdoms of this world by manipulating man.
God has plans or strategies for taking those territories back and wants to do so through the Church and He desires to reveal his strategies for taking them back to His Church. We are now in a new season. There are new wine skins being grown and we are in transition. New leadership structures are appearing. New apostolic leaders are being raised up.
Regional authority across the denominational structure is being created. These are exciting days but it will demand change and we will either hasten the move of God in these days or hinder it. It is a synergy known in marriage where God has literally joined them together. We should pray, plan and work together as the one Church in any given locality.
To create this Jesus gave His very life. Howard Barnes was born in England in to Salvation Army pastor parents.
