8.0.9a.iii To find The CHURCH THAT JESUS BUILT means to find The Only True churches and THE BRIDE of CHRIST.

To find

The CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT

means to find

The Only True churches,

of God The Father,

The Lord Jesus Christ,

and

God The Holy Spirit

as

THE BRIDE of CHRIST.

Again, it is important to know

which KIND of ‘church’

can Truly claim to

Exist in Fulfillment

of

Christ’s Promise of Perpetuity,

because to find that church

means to find

The Only True churches

JESUS FOUNDED

and

THE BRIDE of CHRIST. 

In a world filled

with all kinds of so-called ‘churches’,

each holding forth

their peculiar doctrine and claims,

many are hopelessly confused

and know not which church to turn to.

A knowledge of the truth

will dispel the confusion

and make

the duty of the Christian  plain.

What ‘churches’

can Truly claim to Currently Exist

in Fulfillment of Christ’s Promise

of JESUS’ CHURCHES

CONTINUING to EXIST?,

“throughout all Ages”?

Paul mentions Abraham’s Faith

in Believing God’s Promise

During Abraham’s Time,

in

A proper understanding

of Christ’s Promise

concerning the ‘church’

and the recognition of its Fulfillment

in those holding Baptist Principles,

would perhaps have prevented

the schismatic condition

of ‘Christendom’ today.

Christ promised that His church

would not fail or cease to be.

All organizations

of so called churches,

AS PARTS OF ‘A WHOLE'(?),

or that say they are

‘A DENOMINATION’

of something(?),

rests upon the assumption

that

JESUS CHRIST’S (?)

Promise was broken

and that His church failed.

The Doctrine

of Baptist church Perpetuity

has always been an offensive Doctrine

to those of other faiths,

and quite naturally so.

For if it can be shown

that Baptist churches

are the True churches of Christ,

then the churches of ‘other faiths’

immediately come to occupy

the position of rivals

to those having

Divine Origin.

However,

it is not only those of other  ‘faiths’

who find this Doctrine offensive.

In these modern days of compromise

and lack of conviction,

frequently one discovers

a ‘baptist’, with a small ‘b’,

of the Uniontarian

or “Indifferentist” type

who ‘takes exception’

to this Biblical Teaching.

Dr. Mason

recalled that one such baptist

of Pedo-baptist proclivities

once took him to task

for his views

concerning

The Lord’s churches’ Perpetuity,

stating that

it could not be Historically proven

that Baptist churches have continued

from the Days of Jesus

until the present.

With the Historical data

that had come to his notice,

fresh in mind,

Dr. Mason replied

that he fully believed

sufficient Historical proof

had already been produced

to settle that.

Then he went on to say

that the question was

more than an Historical one;

that it was

more Biblical than Historical.

“If,” Dr. Mason said,

“he only had

his Master’s

Promise to Perpetuate His church

that would be enough

to make him believe

in its Present Existence.”

God made a staggering Promise

to Abraham once,

one whose fulfillment

seemed impossible.

Of Abraham’s Faith, Paul says

( in Romans 4:20-22):

“He staggered not 

at the Promise of God

“being fully persuaded

that what He had promised,

He was Able also to Perform,

and therefore

it was Counted to him

for Righteousness.”

Shouldn’t we have

the Faith of Abraham?

Christ Promised

to Perpetuate His church.

Shouldn’t we have the Faith

to Believe that

He who Promised

is able to Perform it”?

as Abraham did,

in Romans 4:20-22?

*****

 JESUS “BUILT”

HIS CHURCHES,

UPON

“HIMSELF”, as

The ROCK of AGES. 

The CHEIF CORNERSTONE,

The ENORMOUS

FOUNDATION SLAB.

… 

And utilizing a 

‘FIGURE of SPEECH’,

or ‘Play on Words’ 

in His Langage,

Jesus Spoke of Peter as a ‘stone’,

or small fragment of a rock,

Saying,

“You are Peter”,

using, Petros, meaning

“You are

a fragment of stone”,

which

The GREEK LANGUAGE EXPRESSES.

‘Peter’, in this verse is 4074 Pétros

(a masculine noun) –

properly, a stone (pebble),

such as a small rock

found along a pathway.

Jesus then says,

“Upon This Rock“,

4073 /pétra,

which in the original Greek

expresses a “cliff, or boulder,”

JESUS IS SAYING;

“I AM an ENORMOUS

FOUNDATION STONE”

in contrast to you,

Peter / Petros 

4074 /Pétros

(“small stone”).

And

IT IS UPON

THE CHEIF CORNERSTONE

THE ROCK of AGES

of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

that

JESUS WAS SAYING

that HE is

THE FOUNDATION SLAB,

FOUNDING

HIS KIND of ASSEMBLY,

to GLORIFY GOD.

AND IT WAS TO

THE KIND of CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT,

ASSEMBLED BEFORE JESUS

at that moment

that

THE CHEIF CORNERSTONE,

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

PROMISED,

“the gates of Hell

will not prevail against it.”
