The Old Testament
Writers from Genesis to Malachi did not know about the Church Age,
as the Church is never mentioned in the Old Testament. The only two
references in the Gospels are Matthew 18:17, where instructions involve
an assembly of believers, and in Matthew 16:18, where Christ prophesied
the future establishment of the Church, with Himself as the foundation.
Peter verifies this in 1 Peter 2:4-9, thereby disqualifying any future claims
that he founded the Church or was the first Pope!
"As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions
from us." Psalm 103:12
Lord, help me accept the Kingdom offered me, even if it
means a different way of thinking, a different way of living.
In Christ name I pray
