The House of God is not in physical buildings with different names, but in JESUS THE SON, WHO IS OVER HIS OWN HOUSE, WHOSE HOUSE ARE WE, and we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end (Hebrews 3:6).
In our present time there are innumerable church denominations that have developed since the time of the early churches (Revelation 2:1-29).
However, we are to be very careful when we decide to have fellowship of worship in any church denomination because the word of God says:
“[KEEP THY FOOT] when thou goest to the house of God, [AND BE MORE READY TO HEAR], than to give the sacrifice of fools: [FOR THEY CONSIDER NOT THAT THEY DO EVIL]” (Ecclesiastes 5:1).
“[HE THAT BURNETH INCENSE, AS IF HE BLESSED AN IDOL]. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations” (Isaiah 66:3).
“[THE SACRIFICE OF THE WICKED IS AN ABOMINATION] to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but [HE LOVETH HIM THAT FOLLOWETH AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS]” (Proverbs 15:8-9).
“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, [WHAT SHALL THE END BE OF THEM THAT OBEY NOT THE GOSPEL OF GOD]? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (1 Peter 4:17-18).
“[BUT IF OUR GOSPEL BE HID, IT IS HID TO THEM THAT ARE LOST]:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, [LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST, WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD SHINE UNTO THEM].
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
[FOR GOD, WHO COMMANDED THE LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS], hath shined in our hearts, [TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST]” (2 Corinthians 4:3-6).
When King Jesus was here on this earth he was asked about his doctrine.
“Jesus answered them, and said, ‘[MY DOCTRINE IS NOT MINE, BUT HIS THAT SENT ME. IF ANY MAN WILL DO HIS WILL, HE SHALL KNOW OF THE DOCTRINE], whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him’” (John 7:16-18).
“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. [HE THAT ABIDETH IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST, HE HATH BOTH THE FATHER AND THE SON]” (2 John 1:9).
“And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works” (Hebrews 10:21-24).
Our Lord Jesus is very clear when he expressed when he comes, says: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).
“For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).
“[MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME]: And [I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE]; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:27-30).
“[HE THAT HATH RECEIVED HIS TESTIMONY HATH SET TO HIS SEAL THAT GOD IS TRUE]. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand” (John 3:33–35).
“[FOR THERE IS ONE GOD, AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS]: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).
“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8). “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, [WORLD WITHOUT END]. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).
“Grace be with all them that [LOVE] our Lord Jesus Christ in [SINCERITY]. Amen” (Ephesians 6:23-24).
