The greatest thing in all the earth

Church is the greatest thing going in all the earth because it is the Assembling of the saints – the body of Christ coming together under her living Head, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Clarification: “Church” as defined in the New Testament.

    Indeed it is the mystery through which God works though Christ by the power of The Holy Spirit.

    We are all subject to the church no matter how gifted or spiritual one may be .

    I don’t think there can be independent ministry in the sense that one doesn’t want to be under the church since that person in a way doesn’t want to be under the Headship of Christ.

    Your statement here would depend entirely on how you define “church”.

  3. Milind Says:

    Br you have already defined it.

    What I wanted to say is that in a church we are subject to one another on equal level under head and there cannot be any discrimination since we all have been saved through grace and it is through the church that the manifold wisdom of God is revealed to rulers and authorities in heavenly realms.

    So in that sense we are a part of a great working of God in this age.

    “His purpose was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms”

    It’s generally agreed that the rulers and authorities here are the angels.

    Remember, one third of the angels sided with Lucifer and were cast down to the earth.

    This tells us they have a free will. Eh. And, if they have a free will then they have the ability to learn and be taught.

    So, it appears, in this verse, God is still educating his angels concerning his manifold wisdom, and he uses the church to do it.

    Agreed Br
    It is amazing to be a part of this plan and since we are being watched by these principalities it becomes more essential on how the church behaves to exhibit God’s purposes through it…
