+++ Pursue God's True Doctrine, Not Denominations. +++

+++ Pursue God's True Doctrine, Not Denominations. +++

Denominations do nothing more than bring doubt to the minds of unbelievers.Denominations  are nothing more than a disgrace towards God's Word, as they fuel satan's war on Truth.
1. God’s one church was Prophesied to be God's last reigning Kingdom, an Eternal Kingdom, one that would last forever. - Daniel 2:44, Isaiah 9:7
2. God’s church was NOT founded by any man or woman, but rather by Jesus Christ who is its only Founder and its only Foundation. - 1Corinthians 3:11
3. God’s church was started by Jesus, He began its construction in the first century, it was born on the day of Pentecost and on that day the church grew by 3,000. - Acts 2:41
4. God’s church is made up of repentant sinners, not buildings, etc. and only God Himself adds believers to His one Body. This happens when they choose to accept His Word and obey His ONE Plan of Salvation. - Acts 2:38 Acts 2:47
5. God’s church is not governed by any earthly headquarters, but rather Jesus in Heaven is the Head of the church. - Ephesians 5:23
6. God’s church will be rivaled against by False Doctrines and the False Teachers who promote them. - Acts 20:30
7. God’s church is DEFINED by it’s one Doctrine, the Doctrine of Christ's New Covenant. God's church is NOT a Denomination, it can't be. Denominations are False Divisions that break off of God’s church. - Titus 1:9 Acts 20:30
8.John 17:22 I have given them the glory that You gave me, that they may be one as we are one, I in them and You in me. May they be brought to complete unity to  let the world know that You sent me and have loved them even as You have loved me.
9.1Corinthians 1:10 I plead with you brothers, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be "no divisions" among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

 (Ephesians 1:10,22-23 KJV)
(10) That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; {even} in him: (22) And hath put all {things} under his feet, and gave him {to be} the headover all {things} to the church, (23) Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
(Colossians 1:13,18 KJV)
(13) Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated {us} into the kingdom of his dear Son: (18) And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all {things} he might have the preeminence.
(Matthew 16:15-18 KJV)
(15) He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? (16) And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. (17) And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed {it} unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. (18) And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
(Ephesians 2:20-22 KJV)
(20) And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner {stone}; (21) In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: (22) In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
(Ephesians 3:15,21 KJV)
(15) Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, (21) Unto him {be} glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
(Ephesians 5:23-27,29 KJV)
(23) For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. (24) Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so {let} the wives {be} to their own husbands in every thing. (25) Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, (27) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. (29) For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
(Colossians 2:10,19 KJV)
(10) And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: (19) And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
(Romans 12:4-5 KJV)
(4) For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: (5) So we, {being} many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
(1 Corinthians 12:12-28 KJV)
(12) For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also {is} Christ. (13) For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether {we be} Jews or Gentiles, whether {we be} bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. (14) For the body is not one member, but many. (15) If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? (16) And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? (17) If the whole body {were} an eye, where {were} the hearing? If the whole {were} hearing, where {were} the smelling? (18) But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. (19) And if they were all one member, where {were} the body? (20) But now {are they} many members, yet but one body. (21) And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. (22) Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: (23) And those {members} of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely {parts} have more abundant comeliness. (24) For our comely {parts} have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that {part} which lacked: (25) That there should be no schism in the body; but {that} the members should have the same care one for another. (26) And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. (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 miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
(1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 KJV)
(12) And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; (13) And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. {And} be at peace among yourselves.
(Hebrews 13:7,17 KJV)
(7) Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of {their} conversation. (17) Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that {is} unprofitable for you.
(Ephesians 4:11-12 KJV)
(11) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; (12) For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
(Acts 2:41-47 KJV)
(41) Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added {unto them} about three thousand souls. (42) And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. (43) And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. (44) And all that believed were together, and had all things common; (45) And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all {men}, as every man had need. (46) And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, (47) Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

(Psalms 133:1 KJV)
(1) Behold, how good and how pleasant {it is} for brethren to dwell together in unity!

What Does A Wife Want From Her Husband?

Angie Lewis

Besides the marriage basics of my husband caring, giving, trusting, and respecting me, I also want to know that my husband enjoys spending time with me, even when we’re not really doing anything together, but just sitting in the same room together.

I trust that he wouldn't be uncomfortable telling me his feelings about certain issues in his life because I want to be supportive to him.
I would like to know that my husband is comfortable in expressing to me what's on his mind.

I want to be my husband's sounding board when he needs to get matters off his chest.
Some things might be left for the guys, and that's ok, but there are also many issues left just for couples that I feel are sacred between a man and wife.

It is those personal or touchy issues that only husband and wife share in because they are married.
If my husband doesn't tell me his feelings, how can I give him what he wants and needs from me?

Proper communication between couples is so very important, especially proper communication of feelings.
I want my husband to listen to me. I need that from him.

 I want to be able to express to my husband my feelings and thoughts on any given issue or subject going on in my life without his opinion on the matter, or without him trying to fix it, or worse yet, fix me. Often times, I just want someone else to talk to besides the lady friends in my life.

This is what brings me balance and closeness in my relationship with my husband.
 I like it when my husband just sits and listens to me without interrupting with his own thoughts or advice on the subject. This makes me feel connected to my husband instead of being married to myself.

I feel good about myself and marriage when my husband takes the time to hear me out without interjecting or trying to amend every little issue inside of me.
I usually know how to fix the problem anyway, I just need to get it out of my system first, so I can focus more of my positive energy on the issue at hand so I can fix it! 

A wife needs a supportive husband in this arena.
If I ever do need a solution to an issue, I will ask my husband what he thinks about it, and most of the time, ladies, his solution is reasonable and fitting, which makes me wish I had asked for his advice or opinion earlier. 

Men are natural born problem solvers, and that is why they jump on the bandwagon every time they see something needs fixed.
I wish they would put just a little bit more effort into their marriage because there would be far less divorce in this country if men would put their problem solving abilities back into their marriages!

Marriage should be an intimate connection that husband and wife share together as a team.
 Have you ever noticed how some couples seem to know how to make the most out of their marriage?

They flatter one another with their personalities and unique abilities, and they make the most of each other's strengths, and even weaknesses.
This is the kind of emotional connection a woman needs and wants with her man.

She wants to feel married to her husband, and all he's got to do is listen with a sympathetic ear.
 In my articles, I often call this a "labour of love" since both husband and wife work together as a team, sharing in the tasks of marriage, which ultimately affects the attitudes of each spouse in a positive way.

In conclusion, what nourishes a woman's soul?

Besides the obvious, which is a spiritual connection with God, I believe that a wife wants and needs a close attachment and bond with her husband because it gives her that feeling of sanctity and oneness in marriage, which is very important to her.

But being the only one in my family a believer, I don’t know what & how to share it with my family. The friends whom I used to spend time with they says , you are now change but it seems that some one did mind wash for you. The office mates are Now withdrawing double of the Salary what I used to get, & I am waiting on to the Lord for my Next step inside my room & asking Him ,  Lord am I wrong or did I did some mistake ?

My family is against me , my friends are not with me , the relatives don’t know what I am doing, Now one remembers me in my office . I am now so alone in this Race, but Still asking the Lord .

Always Be with me.
I am praying for the next step and asking the lord from my small room. What Next Lord What Next .
