There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships.

The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 27: Meeting with God

Many times our gathering together as believers comes short of “Meeting with God.” What does it mean to meet with God? Why do we gather together? What should we expect? What does God expect? What is our part? Church meetings can take many forms. We may meet for worship, to hear a musical program, to listen to a sermon, or just to meet with each other. While none of these things are wrong in themselves, God’s desire is that we meet with Him together. In the Old Testament, the presence of God revealed in the midst of His people was an awesome and sobering time. What is the counterpart of this in the New Covenant?

• In the Old Testament:
o The Tabernacle (Exodus 40:34-38)
o The Temple (I Kings 8:1-13)
• The New Covenant
o Entering through the veil into the Holy of Holies (Heb. 10:16-25)
o Coming by way of the blood of Christ
o Coming as living stones, alive with the presence of God (1 Peter 2:4)
• To worship God
o To worship in spirit and truth
o To give Him His rightful place together
• To hear God
o Ministers speak as oracles of God (I Peter 4:11)
o To be fed with Christ (living bread)
• To be a vessel though whom God may manifest Himself to others
o Prepared (right relationships)
o Sensitive to the Holy Spirit (alive, looking to God)
o Manifestation of the Spirit as He chooses (I Cor. 12)
• Jesus walks in the midst (Revelation 1-3)
o The messages were to the churches (not just individuals)
o The messengers were in the right hand of Jesus (Rev. 1:20)
o The purpose of God is to bring us together as one under His authority
