Many born again Christians are in the Church but have no idea what it is, why it is and where it all leads.
The reason Amillennialists are so blind (following the heresies of dead men that they've turned into idols) is because that they confuse the nature of the Church with national promises to Israel. They don't know WHAT it is.
The reason Postmillennialists are so blind (following pipe dreams instead of God's word) is that they confuse the mission of the Church with the mission of the returning King of kings. They don't know WHY it is.
And the reason some Pre-millennialists are so blind (trying to put the Church into Daniel's 70th week, suffering Jacob's trouble) is that they confuse the dispensation of Grace with Law. They don't know WHERE it is.
Understanding the Mystery of the Church will clear up the blindness that is evident throughout professing Christianity and will open your eyes to the whole counsel of God, especially as it relates to His plan and where you fit in it.
Great Sermon! In this Church age we live in, it seems that less and less Churches are preaching the grace of God. They depend on man and man's words instead of God, and His Words. They accept the changes man has made to God's Word, and the changes that have been made to God's message without guestion. They do not want their eyes opened to the truth. Ephesians 4:14 says "That we henchforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to decieve." Yet that is what we are seeing in this church age we live in. I miss the fellowship of like-believers on this earth, but I look forward to the fellowship I will have in heaven. Thank you, Pastor Miller for this wonderful message.
