There is only one true God and He is the head of the Catholic Church. In order to be attached to Christ, one must be attached and submitted to the Catholic Church. The profession of the true faith is a prerequisite for the reception and the retention of authority within the Catholic Church. This is for two reasons: 1. The profession of faith is necessary for membership in the Catholic Church (at baptism, the sponsors answer for the baby that he/she believes in Catholic teachings). 2. The primary role of authority in the Church is to protect the Catholic faith. Secondly, there is no Church by which we can be saved except the Catholic Church. This is a teaching of Christ, Himself.

Jesus Christ is Lord of His Blood-Bought Church Today we will see that the Founder and Owner of the Big ‘C' Church is Jesus Christ. We will also see that all little ‘c' churches like the one in Colossae are called to continue to be what our Founder expects us to be! Read Colossians 1:18-23 Jesus Christ is Lord of His blood-bought Church! Let's Pray! In the New Testament letters, which covers the Book of Romans through the letter to Jude, often the passages interlink with each other like a links in a chain. Jesus Christ is Lord of His Church V. 18 For a human body to be functional every member must respond to instructions from its brain, its head. For the church body to be functional we must remember who our leader is – Jesus! The Big ‘C' Church will never stop existing, and the members of it will one day live on the new earth with new bodies forever. But little ‘c' churches can and do cease to exist. That's why when Jesus spoke to another church from Asia Minor, the Ephesian church that Jesus spoke to in Rev. Ch. 2, He told them if they didn't repent He would remove their lampstand. Jesus always needs to have first place in His Church and churches. Jesus Christ is the Reconciler of All and the Redeemer of His Church V. 19-22 It is finished! -John 19:30 Tetelestai! For there is One God, and there is One Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all… 1 Timothy 2:5-6a Here Paul in verse 22 says the consequence of being in Christ and possessing His righteousness is that in God's eyes Christians are as holy, blameless, and above reproach as Jesus Christ Himself is! Jesus Christ has a specific purpose for His Big ‘C' Church and little ‘c' churches V. 23 He is telling us here what is true of every member of the Big C church and is expected of every member of the little ‘c' churches like the one in Colossae. It is understood that true Christians will “continue in the faith” and preach Jesus. Perseverance in believing is one of the fruits of the new birth experience (initiated by God) we obtain when “by grace we are saved through faith.” Progress in Christian behavior is also fruit – not perfection yet, but progress. We continue to make progress now, however imperfect, toward the positional perfection we already have in Christ and can never lose.

Many of us belong to one local church - yet, Christ calls us to belong to one unified Church body. What does this balance look like practically? How do we commit to our own chosen church family while serving Christ's whole Bride, the greater Church? Ed Gaskin (Executive Director of Greater Grove Hall Main Streets) has some insight on those very questions! While trying to find his new local church community, Ed  has spent a few months visiting a variety of churches from different denominations, backgrounds, and cultural makeups. He shares how we currently operate as local church members who belong to the greater Church body, and how we can better pursue unity as one New England Church that worships and fellowships in local regions as we all serve our One God!

That God and the Lamb rule -- not Italy!We saw the seals reveal, the trumpets warn and the bowls punish in a full and complete way. We saw the saints sealed against the coming fury upon the ungodly -- the world, piece by piece, attacked; her seas bloodied as well as her water supplies; her commerce was ruined and her armies defeated while their property was invaded; her gods were punished while her society ran riot in decadence.We saw that the church under the heel of the oppressor and the witnesses preaching in sackcloth, while death was awaiting them. But we saw the inner sanctuary hold and the witnesses loyally preach and, after death, vindicated in resurrection. We saw the people of God in a wildnerness, yet nourished while the Devil is raging on earth and in heaven.We saw Rome go under in blood and fire and smoke -- Rome in all her apocalyptic manifestations, from the civil persecution (the sea beast) to the religious pervert (the earth beast). The God of all power broils the sea beast; and the seductive power of a commercially successful Rome (Harlot) is set on fire by no man's hand and burns as Nero's fire never did -- eternally and thoroughly.We saw the end of Rome, pictured in the battle of Armageddon, and we heard the serpent thrash as he was bound and salted away for a thousand years, while the saints, living and dead, sat enthroned with their Lord!We saw the full story of those who died in the service of the beast. They were raised to no thrones but to die one more time, finally, in a lake of fire. We hear from God, through the "little time" of loosing the Devil, that all attempts by the Devil are doomed to failure, anytime and anywhere.And then we saw the picture of the Church of God. Consecrated in her service; glorious and honored in her reputation and appearance; unbeatable in her strength; intimate in her communion; a blessing to the world and beloved of her Lord. Her future secure and her triumphs eternal!

If you appreciate this work, consider supporting it - https://www.patreon.com/seekgodtogether https://www.seekGodtogether.com Today we will read Colossians 1:18 which says, “He is also the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He might come to have first place in everything.” We've been looking at the soaring song of Jesus in Colossians 1. If all the scholars and all the songwriters throughout the ages put their collective heads and hearts together, they could never exhaust the source material of Jesus Himself. There is never a risk to overshooting Jesus' glory. There is no such thing in getting “out-over-your-skis” in praising Jesus. Each of us whether individually or collectively are barely scratching the surface. So rather than believing the lie that your praise doesn't matter, instead jump in the ocean and behold the King of Kings. And add your words to the mighty chorus that is resounding throughout the cosmos about Jesus. “He is the head of the body, the church.” He's the figure-head, He's the authority, He's the star of the show. And perhaps just put a pin in the fact that the church is the body and the body is the church. That will come in handy in other passages. For now, accept that we are mysteriously part of Christ's own body. “He is the beginning - the firstborn from the dead.” It is interesting to note that if the resurrection of Jesus is true (and here we believe it is), then anything that has previously died, is still dead. Anything since that has died is still dead. There is only one person, one being, one anything, one-of-a-kind, indeed One God, Who has died and then come back to life. There is no keeping God dead. And it is important because if He has not been raised, then neither will you or anyone else. If God is to resurrect anything or anyone, then He must start somewhere. Why not start with Himself? Why not start with the God-man? Indeed He has. And why is He the firstborn from the dead? Why is He the head? Paul tells us: so that He might come to have first place in everything. Not some things. Not most things. All things. God (and Jesus by extension) is intensely focused on being in first place in all things. He doesn't apologize for it. He isn't embarrassed by it. And it's not arrogant in the least. Why? Because He knows Himself to be wondrous, glorious, and beautiful. For Him to not have first place would be a massive disservice to all things - in fact it would be death. It is a gift to all things to have as their source, and their head, Jesus the King of the Universe. And any reconciled being knows this to be true. The more holy we become the more in love we will be with our head - the Firstborn. We too will fall ever deeper in love. He will relish in it and pour Himself out more freely as the ages press on. And we will recognize and glory more and more in the enterprise. So write the songs - sing the praise. It's what you were meant for. Jesus, You are first! Have first place in my life. Move out anything that is resistant to You being first place in all things.

The Patience Of GodReader: Jon WatsonDate: 15th October 2022Passage: 1 Timothy 1:16-------------------Just imagine you are in a museum and one of the rooms is full of life-size figures of people from all over the world and in different times. You come to one figure and it is called Paul. What do you think the notice describing him might say? Well, here is what he wrote about himself in verse 16: "Public Sinner Number One — someone who could never have made it apart from sheer mercy." (The Message)It seemed that Paul, to begin with, was a' no-hoper' as far as becoming a Christian was concerned, but God was patient with him even though Paul persecuted Christians, and was insolent — he was a thoroughly nasty character. But God was patient with him. All that he had heard about Jesus slowly but surely began to seep into Paul's mind and heart, and the mercy and grace of God brought him to put his trust for salvation in the very Jesus whom he had been fighting against. God had been patient with him. When Paul thought of it all it was almost a if he gave a leap of joy and sang out "Deep honour and bright glory to the King of all time — One God, Immortal, Invisible, ever and always. Oh yes!" (verse 17, The Message)Perhaps you pray for someone who seems far away from trusting in Jesus. Don't give up praying. Be patient. God is patient — he was with Paul and maybe he was with us too. Keep on praying, God hears us! PrayerDear Lord, Thank you for your patience with me. Help me to have the same. Amen.

“The Ultimate danger is that progressive Christianity can send a person to hell.”Those were the words of Franklin Graham of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.If there ever was an oxymoron, the term progressive Christianity is the ultimate. CHRISTIANITY IS CHRISTIANITY. It is what it is, means what it says, cannot be reinterpreted or interpreted away. Christianity is a belief system, with standards and values which one accepts or rejects. It cannot be “cherry-picked”, one cannot take some and leave others. CHRISTIANITY IS ALL OR NOTHING! But, it is indeed progressive, radical, revolutionary, life-changing, even radical in terms of faith, hope and love. Mankind in its infinite wisdom cannot make it better, soften, as one so-called progressive, woke thinker said the “hard edges of Christianity” to make it easier, more adaptable to current culture and broader in terms of inclusion. In fact, Christianity is exclusive, excluding what it clearly terms “sinners” and non-believers and rather than a broad gate and lane of welcoming: Straight and narrow is the way.And there is only one way and that is absolute faith and commitment to the God of the Bible and all out commitment to Jesus Christ.There is, says writer Michael Brown, now in current culture, the so-called gay rights revolution. That movement sought to normalize same-sex relationships, completely expand, even change the definition of, morality, and fashioned today the category of LGBTQ(IA)+ with even more to come. No matter that up to the late 20th century, when major Christian denominations believed and taught that same-sex relationships and marriage were wrong and according to the Bible “sinful”, LGBTQ fought for complete change in sexual and moral behavior, a movement in the forefront of today's culture where “anything goes”. To disagree with anything gay at work was to champion HATE, flagrant discrimination the movement said and it determined at every turn to silence or punish those who exercised freedom of speech and spoke out against the new moral revolution and lifestyle in favor of the old biblical standards of morality. Today, it seems that so many Christians, Jews, and even Muslims, the sacred writings of each condemning such a lifestyle, are silenced, intimidated and refused to speak out. Even though LGBTQ is a small minority of the population, it has become loud, vocal, even championed by high tech, digital (Facebook and Comcast among others) and it has clout far beyond its representation. In some cases, it demands inclusion in the Christian church, even though the lifestyle is condemned. This progressive approach, the widening of the road, the narrow road which leads to salvation, is an objective which would include far more and broaden beyond scripture the doctrine of salvation. It is said by Lutzer, the essential goodness and understanding of human nature today as something equally important to determining salvation and morality as the requirements and demands of scripture itself. Man over God or at least co-equal with God, in terms of truth and interpretation. Franklin Graham is right. This so-called progressive Christianity can lead a believer therein “straight to hell”.We should today expect that my fellow Christian, the apostle Paul warned us in2 Timothy 4 that: “the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth.”Surely you know, as I do, that is exactly what is happening today. The Bible is old, crusty, musty, written for ancient times, out of touch, UNWOKE, greatly in need of reinterpretation and modernization so as to be acceptable by all human kind in this radical PROGRESSIVE culture. NOT ME AND MINE. As for my house, my family, my company, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD OF THE BIBLE! What about you?Progressive Christianity denies the concept of original sin. Humankind they say is innately good, born good. Wrong according to the Bible.The new woke Christianity simply does not believe in the substitutionary atonement of Jesus Christ, the blood. There is no need for the unnecessary and mythological doctrine of salvation. The cross of Christ and the blood are totally unnecessary.Progressive Christianity denies the existence of hell. Woke Christianity expands the doctrine of marriage to include almost anything. The movement centers around a global attempt to effectuate so-called UNIVERSAL SALVATION. It champions social justice far more so than any doctrine of individual or personal salvation.It rejects the concept of sin and the need for redemption. It just seems amazing that these radical, woke, progressive individuals would even bother with Christianity. Why not be totally honest, progressives, and deny anything and everything Christian.Be not deceived, progressives. GOD IS NOT MOCKED. Vengeance is mine, says the Lord. I WILL REPAY. Perhaps it is the ultimate sin (unforgiveable?), the denial of the true God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit and the substitution of the so-called intelligence of mankind and the re-write, the fundamental change-over of the Bible of old. Now comes to life, the words in the book of Judges: “They (mankind) did what was right in his or her own eyes.”The bottom line, my fellow Christian, and for every Jew and even Muslim, is that the all-out war against: PEOPLE OF FAITHhas begun and moves full speed ahead. You stand up, and do so NOW, Christian, or the faith of our fathers, the truth of ONE GOD may well be extinguished forever. More than ever, now, you and I must FIGHT THE FIGHT OF FAITH. We must stand for biblical truth, ALL OF IT. There can be no exceptions, no interpretations, no cherry-picking. Scripture and the Christian way of life is ALL OR NOTHING. This still remains the right way, the only way: THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE!

1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, 2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: 10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, 11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: 12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. 13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. 14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. 1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. 17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Q. 2. Why will reason allow no more but one God? A. Because God is the first being; Rev. 1:11. Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last; and there can be but one first being, and God is the most perfect and excellent being; Psal. 71:19. Thy righteousness, also, O God, is very high, who hath done great things: O God, who is like unto thee? And there can be but one most perfect and excellent being.

God created us to be in relationship with others and while that desire is a good thing, we need to first find our identity in Christ, not those relationships. With that foundation in mind, God created sex as a good thing within the institution of marriage, which is a covenant relationship for the glory of God. A Q&A session with Karis, Joel and Adam follows at the end of the message.

He is First - Colossians 1:18

Seek God Together

If you appreciate this work, consider supporting it - https://www.patreon.com/seekgodtogether Today we will read Colossians 1:18 which says, “He is also the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He might come to have first place in everything.” We've been looking at the soaring song of Jesus in Colossians 1. If all the scholars and all the songwriters throughout the ages put their collective heads and hearts together, they could never exhaust the source material of Jesus Himself. There is never a risk to overshooting Jesus' glory. There is no such thing in getting “out-over-your-skis” in praising Jesus. Each of us whether individually or collectively are barely scratching the surface. So rather than believing the lie that your praise doesn't matter, instead jump in the ocean and behold the King of Kings. And add your words to the mighty chorus that is resounding throughout the cosmos about Jesus. “He is the head of the body, the church.” He's the figure-head, He's the authority, He's the star of the show. And perhaps just put a pin in the fact that the church is the body and the body is the church. That will come in handy in other passages. For now, accept that we are mysteriously part of Christ's own body. “He is the beginning - the firstborn from the dead.” It is interesting to note that if the resurrection of Jesus is true (and here we believe it is), then anything that has previously died, is still dead. Anything since that has died is still dead. There is only one person, one being, one anything, one-of-a-kind, indeed One God, Who has died and then come back to life. There is no keeping God dead. And it is important because if He has not been raised, then neither will you or anyone else. If God is to resurrect anything or anyone, then He must start somewhere. Why not start with Himself? Why not start with the God-man? Indeed He has. And why is He the firstborn from the dead? Why is He the head? Paul tells us: so that He might come to have first place in everything. Not some things. Not most things. All things. God (and Jesus by extension) is intensely focused on being in first place in all things. He doesn't apologize for it. He isn't embarrassed by it. And it's not arrogant in the least. Why? Because He knows Himself to be wondrous, glorious, and beautiful. For Him to not have first place would be a massive disservice to all things - in fact it would be death. It is a gift to all things to have as their source, and their head, Jesus the King of the Universe. And any reconciled being knows this to be true. The more holy we become the more in love we will be with our head - the Firstborn. We too will fall ever deeper in love. He will relish in it and pour Himself out more freely as the ages press on. And we will recognize and glory more and more in the enterprise. So write the songs - sing the praise. It's what you were meant for. Jesus, You are first! Have first place in my life. Move out anything that is resistant to You being first place in all things.
