Once the CHURCH becomes ONE FLESH, are ONE ACCORD, having ONE HEART and SOUL, built in ONE FAITH, buried together in ONE BAPTISM, worshipping in ONE SPIRIT, moving as ONE BODY, gathered together in ONE PLACE, believing as ONE COMPANY and having ONE LORD, then the MATERIALS for an ACCURATE BUILDING has been given.
The CHURCH must be ESTABLISHED on the GOVERNING PRINCIPLES of the KINGDOM of GOD. This will bring forth the CHURCH to emerge STRONG. It will bring the LIFE OF THE KINGDOM to the Church, it will have ACCURATE and HONEST LEADERSHIP and It will stop the church from moving away from its ORIGINAL PURPOSE and MANDATE.
Hence EVERY CHURCH must be built in this way. The FOUNDATIONS that must be laid are :
1. IT MUST BE BUILT FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND NOT FOR PERSONALITIES.(Ex 40:34)
The Church must be raised for ONE purpose only and that is to usher in the PRESENCE OF GOD. The main desire is to bring the ARK into the TENT. (1Chron 13:3-4)
The PRESENCE of God must find a place of REST amongst us and the right PATTERN will bring the GLORY of God down. ( Heb 8:5)
The Church cannot be built for man, it is not Paul’s or Apollos house but God’s House and It must be built according to the GRACE that God has given the Church. (1Cor 3: 10)
We cannot carry AMBITION, SELFISHNESS, SELF CENTEREDNESS and PRIDE as this will short circuit what God is doing in the House. Hence the Church must be built for GOD’S PRESENCE and not for MAN’S GLORY.
As a Church, we must constantly seek to BRING HIS PRESENCE DOWN, not relying on the PERSONALITY of the Pastor or Preacher.
How to bring the PRESENCE of God into the House: INTENSE WORSHIP.(all worshipping as ONE)
2. IT MUST BE BUILT ON THE PRINCIPLES OF GOD AND NOT THE PREFERENCE OF MAN.(Matt 21: 12-13)
The Church must not cater to the people’s NEEDS, or be SEEKER FRIENDLY but must always seek to the PRINCIPLES of God. We must not seek the people’s “ WATER LEVEL” but we must RAISE them to the LEVEL that the SPIRIT has placed in the Church.
There are 3 types of people in the Church(Mk 2: 18)
1)The DEAD MOVE-These are the Pharisees, people who INSIST in keeping the LAW.
2)The OLD MOVE-These are John’s Disciples, people who follow the MAN and not God.
3)The NEW MOVE-These are Jesus Disciples, people who move by the NEW COVENANT.
That is why it is important for the Church to keep PROGRESSING according to God’s MOVE. We cannot MOVE if these three moves remain in the House.
We must never COMPROMISE the WORD but ACT and CONTINUE in the WORD. We must not allow FALSE DOCTRINES of Man to rule the Church, but must allow the PURE WORD OF GOD, the APOSTLES DOCTRINE to rule the Church.
Once God’s PRINCIPLES through his WORD is established in the HOUSE then the people will be: BORN AGAIN, GROW and, Be PURIFIED and RENEWED by the WORD.. (Acts 2:37-42)
How to bring the PRINCIPLES of God into the House- By NOT COMPRIMISING on his WORD and acting on it as ONE..
3. IT MUST BE BUILT FOR GOD’S PURPOSES AND NOT FOR PROGRAMS.(Matt 21: 12-13)
God has a PARTICULAR PURPOSE for the church and we must ALIGN every PROGRAM to FULFILL this PURPOSE.
So many Churches have many programs that benefit the people but not fulfilling the PURPOSE OF GOD for the Church. The PURPOSE of God for this CHURCH of KTS is “IMPACTING THE CITY and TRANSFORMING THE NATION, so every Program that we have must be aligned to this PURPOSE.
All our PRIORITIES and every ACTIVITY must align themselves towards this PURPOSE. All our teaching programs, feeding programs, social programs, spiritual programs must be TOWARDS fulfilling the DESTINY of this Church- changing OLD KLANG ROAD to NEW KLANG ROAD.
How to fulfil GOD’S PURPOSE: KNOW what has been put into this House and WORK IT OUT as ONE.
4. IT MUST BE BUILT TO DEVELOP PEOPLE AND NOT MAKE PROFIT.(Matt 21:12-13)
When Churches RAISE MONEY and not RAISE PEOPLE it is set for destruction. That is why most churches are geared towards the number of people it has and the issue of Tithes and offerings.
PEOPLE’S LIVES must be built up, not BUILDINGS. The Church must TRAIN GOD’S PEOPLE to be skilful, resourceful and equipped for “ EVERY GOOD WORK”.
The Church must align it’s people to FELLOWSHIPPING and STRENGTHENING each other.
The Church must TRAIN to SEND OUT it’s people to impact the territories around it and must BUILD it’s people to be RESPONSIBLE and OBEDIENT to the purpose of the Church.
The Church must DEVELOP it’s people to be STRONG, COURAGEOUS and VICTORIOUS.
The Church must RELEASE CITY TAKERS, GIANT KILLERS, INFLUENTIAL and HISTORY MAKERS, who will fulfil the DESTINY of the Church.
BUILD the people and the CHURCH will be BUILT.
How to BUILD PEOPLE up: By RECOGNISING their CALLING and GIFTING and RAISING them up as ONE.
5. IT MUST BE BUILT ON THE PROPHETIC AND NOT ON THE PROJECTIONS.(Acts 6: 1-4)
The Church must be built for the FUTURE and not what it will ACHIEVE. The FUTURE must be revealed to the Church. Every son and daughter of the Church must have a “ PROPHETIC INSIGHT” to the future that God has planned for the Church.
Those who cannot see the future, will not manage the church to progress it.
The PROPHETIC VOICE OF THE CHURCH will EXCITE the people, MOTIVATE them to move out and on, RISE above their circumstances, Increase in their FAITH and SEE beyond our “ walls of Jericho”.
PROJECTIONS produces RESULTS but the PROPHETIC leads you to your DESTINY.
How to bring in the PROPHETIC VOICE : By RECEIVING each PROPHETIC WORD said by the Prophet in the House and LIVING it out as ONE.
6. IT MUST BE BUILT ON ACCURATE PATTERNS AND NOT ON PROJECTS.(Acts 2: 42)
Churches are “ BUILT “ according to their “ DENOMINATIONAL PROJECTIONS” and so do not move onto the BEYOND.
The “PROPHETIC CHURCH” must be STRUCTURED by the “APOSTLOLIC DOCTRINE” that will lead to the IMPACTING and IMPARTING of the HOLY’S SPIRIT’S MANDATE to CONTAIN the PRESENCE OF GOD.
ACCURATE PATTERNS will allow the HOLY SPIRIT TO MOVE FREELY in the service. There will not be any hindrance to the free flowing of the Spirit. (Acts 2:1-4)
ACCURATE PATTERNS will release POWER and PRESENCE.
The 5 FOLD MINISTRY GIFTS will be released and the people will be BUILT, EQUIPPED for Ministry when accurate patterns run the church.(Eph 4: 11-12)
GOD will add his DIMENSIONS and EMPOWER the Church. The Church will receive continuous SPIRITUAL IMPARTATION and will be able to TAP onto the Holy Spirit’s power.
How to build ACCURATE PATTERNS: By KNOWING what a PROPHETIC and APOSTOLIC CHURCH is all about and MOVING as ONE.
7. IT MUST BE BUILT FOR GENERATIONS AND NOT JUST POSITIONS (Ex 29: 6-9)
So many Pastors and Churches, raise up their people to continue when they are gone by giving them “POSITIONS” but a WELL ORDERED HOUSE will raise GENERATIONS to continue the work.
Such a Church will be built for ALL RACES and will have only ONE CULTURE and that is KINGDOM CULTURE, not Chinese, English or Tamil culture etc..
The TRANSFER of LEGACY will passed to the next generation. The FATHERS in the Church will raise up CHILDREN (SONS and DAUGHTERS)that will carry the DOMINAT ANOINTING of the House into the next Generation.
The Church will move from GLORY to GLORY, GRACE to GRACE.
What God began with the Apostles will continue to the next generations and the next.
ACCURATE LEADERSHIP will be provided for in this kind of Church. (Acts 2: 42-43)
The Church must not confine itsl have the FINISHING GENERATION as their army marching onto the Father’s land, REALIGNING, READJUSTING and CONFIGIRING according to the MASTER’S WORD.
elf to the Ministry Gifts but must PROGRESS to greater heights into the POLITICAL and FINANCIAL fields.
A TRUE APOSTOLIC and PROPHETIC CHURCH wil
How to build the GENERATIONS to come: By ACCEPTING the FATHER of the House and allowing him to birth us as SONS and DAUGHTERS.
This is what it means to have a Church as the ACCURATE MODEL.
ACCURATE MODELS will be VISTORIOUS..
ACCURATE MODELS will GO FORWARD..
ACCURATE MODELS will PROSPER.
ACCURATE MODELS will fulfil PURPOSE and MANDATE.
