There is Only One God, One Faith and One Church

There is Only One God, One Faith and One Church

 

Brothers and Sisters; There is Only One God, One Faith and Only One Church the Fellowship of the Spiritual and Physical Body of Christ.

 

And God gives only One Blessings of Grace for One blessings of salvation for the Born Again of Christ’s Indwelling. And unto each one a blessing of spiritual gifts or gift.

 

Ephesians 4:4-7 (KJV)
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.

 

See the difference between the blessing of receiving the Holy Spirit and the blessing of the Power of the Holy Spirit (Baptism of Fire). Notice how the Apostles received each one separately. Noting that in others scripture the blessing of the Holy Spirit and the Power of the Holy Spirit (Baptism of Fire) are received together. (Acts 10:44-48 (KJV) Peter preaches Christ to Cornelius)

 

John 20:19-23 (KJV) (Apostles Commissioned)

19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in their midst and said unto them, “Peace be unto you.” 20 And when He had so said, He showed unto them His hands and His side. Then were the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.

 

21 Then said Jesus to them again, “Peace be unto you. As My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said unto them, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.

 

23 Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever sins ye retain, they are retained.”

 

Acts 1:3-8 (KJV) (Apostles would soon be Baptized with the Power of the Holy Spirit)

3 To these also He showed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen by them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God

 

.4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, “which,” saith He, “ye have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.”

 

6 When they therefore had come together, they asked of Him, saying, “Lord, wilt Thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” 7 And He said unto them, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the Father hath put in His own power.

 

8 But ye shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

 

Acts 2:1-4 (Apostles receive the Baptism of the Power of the Holy Spirit)

1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

 

Now we have seen the Power of the Holy Spirit (Baptism of Fire) is a separate blessing, from receiving the Holy Spirit.

 

Now see that not all have the same gifts and that the spiritual gifts Baptism of Fire is not a sign of salvation, but a sign of our calling, our work of edification of others in God through Christ Jesus.

 

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 (KJV)

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit thereby:

 

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues.

 

11 But all of these that one and the selfsame Spirit worketh, apportioning to every man individually as He will.

 

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

 

28 And God hath set some in the church: first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracle workers, then those with gifts of healing, helpers, administrators, and those with diversity of tongues.

 

29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?

 

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 (KJV)

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

 

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

 

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profited me nothing.

 

1 Corinthians 14:1-6 (KJV)

1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

2 For he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not unto men, but unto God: for no man understand him; howbeit in the spirit he speaks mysteries.

3 But he that prophesied speaks unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

4 He that speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself; but he that prophesies edifies the church.

5   I would that ye all spoke with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesies than he that speaks with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

6   Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?

 

1 Corinthians 14:12-17 (KJV)

12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

13 Wherefore let him that speaks in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.

14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayed, but my understanding is unfruitful.

15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupies the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understand not what thou say?

17 For thou verily give thanks well, but the other is not edified.

 

1 Corinthians 14:18-25 (KJV)

18 I thank my God; I speak with tongues more than ye all:

19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.

20 Brethren be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.

21 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.

22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying served not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?

24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:

25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so, falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.

 

1 Corinthians 14:27-33 (KJV)

27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

29   Let the prophets speak two or three and let the other judge.

30 If anything be revealed to another that sits by, let the first hold his peace.

31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

 

Now take heed the Word of God and His Christ and His Church, The Fellowship of the Spiritual and Physical Body of Christ.

 

For all that wish to stand on the Faith of the Denominations of Man teaching the Commandments of Men. There is no Born Again in the Indwelling. And Here is God Word His Proof;

 

Isaiah 29:13-14 (KJV)

Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

 

Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

 

Matthew 15:1-9 (KJV)

Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

 

But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that cursed father or mother, let him die the death.

 

But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightiest be profited by me; And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus, have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

 

Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, and honored me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

 

But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 

 

Matthew 5:33-37 (KJV)

33 Again, you have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

 

34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

 

37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

 

Matthew 12:30-32 (KJV)

30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathered not with me scattered abroad.
