Most people today are only concerned about the material. They strive to attend to their physical needs, but neglect their spiritual needs. They may even attend church, but often the real motivations that impel them to do so have nothing to do with a true faith in Christ.
NEW VILLAGE TELOS
Let's look through the meaning of the word NEW, what God really wants us to understand about being a new people, a new church, a new being.
The word "new" is a translation of the original Greek kainos, which means new, fresh, something that has been done very recently, something of a new quality, that is in a state of non-use, something unknown until now or about which had not been heard before.
From all this we learn that kainos is used to refer to the new, not with respect to time, but new in form or quality, of a different nature from what is contrasted as old (Vine Expository Dictionary, electronic version, Electronic Library) Caribbean). To refer to something that is new with respect to time the Greek uses the word nevo. "
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and on the little stone written a new name, which no one knows but he who receives it.
Beloved church God wants to give us a new name, there is only one condition; says the word to the one who wins ...
Only the brave ones snatch the kingdom beloved church, God wants a church of true brave, an aggressive church, a church that snatches the blessing.
To him who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will never leave it again; and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which descends from heaven, my God, and my new name.
Again beloved church God makes a promise to his people with the condition; To the one who wins ...
Revelation 5: 9
and they sang a new song, saying: You are worthy to take the book and to open its seals; because you were slain, and with your blood you have redeemed us for God, of every lineage and language and people and nation;
Beloved church is the time to understand what God is saying; we were redeemed to sing a new song; what worship represents, God wants a church that worships him in spirit and in truth.
Revelation 14: 3
And they sang a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn the song except those one hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from among the earth.
Beloved church God today calls you to maintain a life in holiness, God comes to seek a holy church, without spot and without wrinkles.
Revelation 21: 1
New heaven and new earth
I saw a new heaven and a new earth; because the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea no longer existed.
The new heaven and the new earth will not be separated from each other; the land of the saints, his glorified bodies will be heavenly. The old world, with all its problems and tumults, will be over. There will be no sea; this adequately represents the freedom of the passions in conflict, temptations, problems, changes and alarms; of what can be divided or interrupted the communion of the saints.
Jesus said in Matthew 7: 17-18: "Thus every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit, the good tree can not bear bad fruit, the bad tree can not bear good fruit. fruit, it is cut and thrown into the fire. "
Beloved church when I see the painting that heads this publication, I can see the new Jerusalem, it is as if the main idea of our leader sirknight when I was drawing it through the tools and colors of the paint that God uses was moving to that scenario and is that is why the reflections are taken from the book of apocalypse, I do not really want to overwhelm you with so many biblical verses, but this is the scenario of living in a new town, where there is a church, along with a river and all the details that it offers our Sirknigth leader does not give me another result than to be able to visualize the new Jerusalem spoken of in the apocalypse.
Beloved church we must bear good fruits
The fruits of the new man are also new fruits. They are fruits that establish the Covenant. They are fruits that point to God's purpose for His Son Jesus Christ and for his children created in the image of Jesus Christ.
All the companies started by new men produce new fruits. Whether we establish relationships, found new families, found new businesses, founded communities of faith (Churches), established laws, founded Christian Schools, established disciplinary norms, wrote literary works, etc., if we are new men these means will have the purpose of producing new fruits All these things are tools. They are not an end in themselves.
New men reason as God reasons, we have the mind of Christ
As an example let us take Ephesians, chapter 4: that you walk worthy of the vocation with which you were called, bearing with patience one another, keep the unity of the spirit, called in the same hope, vestments of the new man, discarding the lie , handle adequately the anger, theft and generosity, pactal administration of the words, remove bitterness, anger, anger, screaming, malice and malice, be kind to one another. All this is summed up in the phrase: "Be imitators of God, then, as beloved children" (Ephesians 4:33).
In short, beloved church, this is the new people that God wants us to really be, a people that really through love, humility, forgiveness, kindness can give a lot of prosperity in the New Town of Telos.
May the God and Savior of my life bless you always in the mighty name of Jesus Christ !!! Amen...
