“Super Power Series” #2

20190807_124624
An I-Beam from the fallen Towers of NYC. The sun can shine its guts out, but if the hearts of man are full of darkness then the whole world is dark. The sun is not the light of this world!

The weight of the world is upon our shoulders. Do you feel it church? You should! Blessed are they that mourn? Are you feeling the pain of our present age? Or are you cozy, protected, untouched in your personal comfort zone? How do you change the hate filled hearts and minds of our present age? That is the task assigned to us and we are failing! Is it the world’s fault? Or ours?

George Floyd. Need I say more? Covid 19. Corona. Need I say more? Nursing homes. Need I say more? The Twin Towers of NYC. Need I say more? And who has the power to change all this? Only a powerful church. That’s right. Because… the sun above is not the light of this world. That sun can shine its guts out but if the hearts and minds of people are dark, the whole world is full of darkness, and how great is that darkness! God says in the days of Noah the whole earth was filled with violence!

I know this is crazy, but at this time, on this Pentecost weekend, God has me doing a series on POWER? Hhmm. This ought to be good. God’s got to prove it to me on this one.

Real LOVE cannot be mass produced on any assembly line or forced into society by any man-made laws. Build as many jails as you like, it won’t change hearts. God has assigned his church that responsibility to be a light upon a hill and the standard for all to follow, but we are failing miserably. Where is the POWER? The early church turned the world upside down, but not us. The world has turned us upside down! And so much so that were depending on a man like Trump to save us. Sad indeed. Pathetic.

We know where the POWER is, don’t we? But it will cost us. It will cost us “personally”. Who’s willing to pay the price? Evidently not enough of us. At least not yet. How bad will it need to get before we get back to the POWER?

We talked about POWERS in the first episode, and how God gave you some…in your creation… in the primordial supernatural soup he stirred you in. But you think it is silly to consider your gift to teach, or write, or sing, or invent, or lead, or run faster than anyone, or lift more weight… you think it is silly to think of these as super powers that can save some one, or some few, or a multitude? What are your God given POWERS? The reason they can’t save the world is because your using them in your own power, not God’s!

Yes, there is a price. The oil of his anointing. The Day of Pentecost. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Child of God…if you claim his Name…then this is your POWER…but are we the foolish, or the wise? Have we lost all knowledge of the old ways? The magic, the mystery, the paradox, the supernatural!

In the first episode I spoke of my top three super powers. Teacher of God’s word, writer, and working with my hands to remodel homes. I just spent all morning putting new shingles on our roof the old fashioned way, with nail and hammer. No air gun. Just my hammer and a bucket of nails.  That super power blesses my wife, and perhaps a few others, but it won’t save the world. However, words on paper, or blog, this thing I’m doing now…it has POWER to INSPIRE! To change hearts and minds! To bring LIGHT! Ignite a FIRE! The message of Christ is the only LIGHT in this world, because it is the message of pure LOVE, and no HATE! It is the message of the changed heart empowered by God!

The sun can shine all day but the world is a dark place because of the hearts and minds of people. And the modern church fails. People are leaving her to find the simplicity of what does not fail. Some would rather walk on water than have a fat bank account. The love of money, the greed, the distractions, the stress, the self-centered mindset, nothing but cement shoes pulling you down, like Peter when he took his eyes off the Lord.

We got to get back to the POWER. For the church, and for God’s people, the POWER is connected to the supernatural. The magic, mystery, paradox, and Spirit of God. The modern church is too lukewarm to know of these things. In our House Fellowship this week, we had another Lord’s Supper, Communion, and prayer to be counted faithful for whatever God may pour out of his Spirit today, and every day! And we did not miss Passover! Which set us up for the Pentecost, but what does our modern church know of these things?

You know, the right song sung by an anointed minstrel of God can change the world. That’s a super power. The right teacher… the right servant…the right mechanic… the right police officer… the right politician… the right plumber (such as Smith Wigglesworth), can potentially change the world when God’s POWER flows through them. The modern church has incredible talent, but who’s writing and singing the songs that’s changing the world? Where is the POWER? It’s not the modern church. What good is your talent without the power of God?

So how do you shine the light of Christ? How does he shine through you? Is it with POWER? Are you willing to pay a price? Are we paying the price, making the sacrifices all Priest are called to make? Or is it just a game with you? Not to be taken that seriously? C’mon now, nobody really lives like that now days, do they? Hhmmm. And that’s why we are where we are today, the whole earth filling with violence and becoming the Days of Noah.

No one fast anymore. No one really prays. No one memorizes chapters of their Bible. No one gives their money away and risk poverty. No one loves to the point of real sacrifice anymore. UNLESS… someone begins to get a vision… and God breathes on us…and breath begins to enliven the dry bones of a dead army! Can the sails of such a mighty ship be filled with heaven’s Wind again? Can these bones live again?

I’ve seen a lot of heroes during these COVID days. But where are the godly?  There are a few, but too few. The light of the church is more than showing the light of the “good”, but it is also about the LIGHT of the GODLY. We need to set our bar higher. The world and the worldly are making us look bad. What we see in the earth today, it’s our fault! As the scriptures say: If… “MY”… people…. It’s our fault. I don’t expect unbelievers, or even those who play at being saved, to understand what I’m saying in this article. But an awakening has happened, and there are those who do. Perhaps I write for them.

A final note> It’s time for me to begin reaching out more with our Home Fellowship. We have more room in the house now. Yes, it is still a work in progress, but perhaps there are some who would like to be a part of that. We are located on west side of Indianapolis, Indiana. If you would like to “meet”, simply leave a comment and we will set up a place and time. We’ll enjoy a cup of coffee, some conversation, and go from there. Simplicity is one of our values in this Fellowship. It don’t get much simpler than coffee and conversation. I’ll buy.

We have much more to write on this “Super Powers Series”. More coming soon.

Let us come together and share our super powers, that we might turn the world upside down, before it explodes from within. Perhaps God will grant a little more time.

“Your Strongest Super Power”

20190820_115546 All Superheroes have a super power, but what did God give you? The very fact you’re not good at a lot of things, but very good at a few, shows where your powers lie. How much are you using them? Do you get to use them?

Obviously I’m not talking about your ability to dodge bullets, leap over tall buildings, or throw cars around, but I’ll bet you’re like me, not very good at a lot of things, but above average in a few, and that’s where you love to live. That’s where you come alive!

I’ve heard people with a gift to sing sending chills up my spine in awe! But I can’t. I’m also not mechanical. I love hot cars but I’ve never had one because I hate working on them! And hiring it done is too expensive! So no sleek muscle car for me. But I can live with that, because those are not my super powers, as much as I might enjoy it if they were.

After all, Spiderman can’t be Wolverine, he has to be Spiderman! And the world needs a Spiderman! How would it look if Aquaman tried to be Thor? Or Black Widow, Captain America? We each must be who we are, not who we are not, and each of us have our own powers.

What would be my top three? I love writing… and teaching spiritual things of God… and I’m pretty good at remodeling a house. I hate working on a car, but I enjoy improving a house. I seem to understand what it takes for a house to work much more than I do a car. I also understand a life that flows in Spirit, walking in the power of God. I understand how God has designed things to work, and I love studying it, digging for deeper understandings.

So what would I choose as my top super power, out of those three? Teaching the power of a life with God. No question about it, that’s me. Even all my writings pertain to that in some way. But I made my living as a truck driver. As of yet, writing and teaching has never paid the bills, but that’s alright, Spidey was under appreciated too, and I still love my powers. In fact, God never meant for our powers to be about the money. For many of us, the lure of money is a danger to the proper use of our super powers.

But why am I bringing this up? To ask you if you’re using your super powers? Do they have a place on a front burner, or are they lost in a life out of control? And are you using your powers for God, the one who gave them to you? Oh you may think you’re just that good! But no, you accidentally fell into a vat of weird unknown chemicals and instead of it killing you, YOU BECAME YOU! I hope you like yourself. God wants you to.

Perhaps you’re not happy with his choices? You’re stuck with being Spiderman and you’d rather be Thor? Well I suggest you get over it! Be thankful you’re still alive! (After falling in that vat!) Start being the best Spiderman you can be. There are a lot of people out there needing what O’Spidey has to offer. They need help and Spidey can save the day, if he will. Get right with God and get those super powers in gear. And don’t forget to thank him for your incredible life. The life you have the chance to live, if you just begin to truly appreciate and develop your God-given gifts. It’s supernatural.

So what’s your top three? And what do you choose as your number one?

This is just something a little different from Soul Sailor tonight. Just the mood I’m in.

 I built this teepee as a spiritual get-away. Jesus was both a physical and spiritual carpenter too. 

“New Wine Skin” #8

We have arrived. It has been a journey. The Apostle John was exiled to the Isle of Patmos for preaching Jesus, but we have arrived at the Isle of Passover! There were many excommunicated from the church because of preaching Passover!

There are those who say, “What can we do about it now? Surely it doesn’t matter anymore.” But is it still in your  New Testament Bible? Yes it is, both Book of Acts and !st Corinthians 11. Did Jesus set it as an example? Yes he did. Did the Apostles teach to continue it? Yes they did. Did the early church fathers do so? Yes they did! But as the church headed down a bad path with Constantine, around 300 AD, it seems Rome had finally won their way! So should we stay on that path? Are we justified in such a course?

If you have sailed this far with me, then you know most of the points I just mentioned, and I have but a little more to give. If you missed all the evidence laid out thus far, simply read backwards all the “New Wine Skin” articles, and you will find that it is true, the Apostles taught to continue a Christian form of Passover, and the early church did for many years, but it came under attack by bishops of Rome, and it was the beginning of the end, and now here we are today.

Many Bible experts think that Jesus did not teach us much about how to actually have “church”. Jesus was birthing the church but did not teach the details of running it, or its exact form, but I say he did! He did it in many ways! He showed us every day! As he walked about, as he ate meals and had fellowship, as he loved people and helped people and taught the Kingdom of God to one and all, as he had church EVERYWHERE as natural as a flowing river. Even as the Book of Acts church immediately had a heavy emphasis on fellowship, meals, Lord’s Supper, home meetings, and the Word. I wonder where they got that from? The evidence is beyond denying.

I strongly believe the Lord’s Supper is also God’s instructions as to what His church is to be, as if a holy template laid down for all to see and practice. The Lord’s Supper is a perfect picture of God’s family and fellowship. And it even included a devil to be exposed! That Supper is rich and overflowing with teachings for having church!

But we have short-formed the template and short circuited what church is meant to be. Is it too late? Or can there yet be a last days revival? And if there is to be, should we not go back to all the original templates our Lord set for us? Not simply the Passover meal/ Lord’s Supper, but all the templates! I think we should give the devil a spiritual heart attack as he sees a remnant, a powerful remnant coming alive in the old ways again! Is God asking too much of us modern Christians? It’s all in our Bibles.

Many Prophets of God have said this last Passover was very significant because the COVID 19 had forced people to stay in their homes as death haunted the streets. There had not been a Passover like it since going all the way back to the original one in Egypt! All the way back to Moses! And now there are Prophets looking at Pentecost. May 31st. If this last Passover was significant, might God also have plans for this Pentecost? Have you made yourself ready? 10 virgins are predicted to awake, but only 5 have the oil that poured out at Pentecost! Could there be a supernatural refreshing?

Over a year ago God showed me we were crossing a spiritual line in June of 2020. I haven’t said a lot about that because it’s hard to explain. I was on a 14 day separation to God in a special place, and I was watching the Orion meteor shower of 2018. How long is an hour with God? I felt God asked me that, that night. If my math is right, it’s roughly 42 years. And though we have been faithful to doing Passover for three years now, I never thought about Pentecost till this year! And the very next day after Pentecost, begins June! We cross the line on Pentecost! Wow. I’m still shocked by it all. Like I said, it’s hard to explain, unless you have ears to hear, and most don’t.

I have been preparing for Pentecost ever since I was made aware of this. I fast and pray each Friday. I will do so again this next Friday as we enter the Pentecost weekend. I love the way Jesus never forced anyone to do anything. He offered them wisdom and truth. Some of them were wise enough to lay hold of God’s many treasures, and many were not. This too, is the simple template of God’s church, and now we have our last piece of evidence to give before this blog site moves on to whatever God is planning next, but we will remain “Soul Sailors”. This has become a permanent theme of this site.

Okay…if you Google > “Christian form of Passover”, you should be able to find Wikipedia —- “Passover (Christian holiday). At that site you will find quotes by both Melito of Sardis, and a man named, Apollinaris who wrote things during those times concerning the practice of Passover, still going on with the church, at that time. But following those quotes is a subtitle of “Excommunication for celebrating passover”. In my mind it’s hard to understand what would be so evil about the Lord’s Supper/ Passover that would be grounds for excommunication. This is more evidence of the bad path we were on! (And maybe still are?)

Anyway… this is the information under that heading: “Christians who kept the biblical Passover were considered Quartodeciman because they kept Passover on the 14th day of Nisan. Polycrates of Ephesus, was a late 2nd century leader who was excommunicated (along with all Quartodecimans) by Pope Saint Victor for observing the Christian Passover on the 14th of Nisan and not switching it to a Sunday resurrection celebration. He, Polycrates, claimed he was simply following the practices according to scripture and the Gospels, as taught by the Apostles John and Philip, as well as by church leaders such as Polycarp and Melito of Sardis.” (Next paragraph.)> “According to Catholic Encyclopedia, neither Jesus Christ nor the early church leaders changed the Passover celebration to Easter. In fact, the Jewish feast was taken over into the Christian Easter celebration.”

And there you have it, folks. One last confirmation that some kind of a Christian form of Passover was continued by the early church for many years. Has God changed his mind? Has the Book of Acts or 1st Corinthians 11 changed? Might he be pleased if some of us got back to the original templates our Lord set?

I have set the sails of our small fellowship according to the old maps of our Bible. I am also remodeling our house to better fit what I believe will be a people waking up and looking for such places of simplicity. We are under no law requiring us to be experts on this Passover meal. God sees our hearts, and we do a simple form of it that we find to be rich and rewarding. Jonathon Cahn helped us understand more this year, and we implemented some of it as best we could. But most important is our hearts towards God and coming back together in that simple blood of Jesus family relationships. Simplicity is one of the templates our Lord gave us. Church Everywhere.

Modern church does not easily fit the old templates of the early church fathers. These things are a problem for them and the large amounts of money they need to keep afloat. They do not want to talk about these things, and all the while they look more and more like the church of Laodicea everyday. But we refuse to change the set of our sails. The sails of many churches today are set for the “great falling away”, but as Israel said when God challenged them to walk in the old ways… “We will not.” (Jer. 6:16)

This ship may look awesome, but what is it’s destination? Where is the set of those sails headed? Are we too caught up in fancy and powerful looks to be concerned about destination?

“Life at Sea”

87b5395405443fa98fcdb798cb2bf489

“The Devout”

Life at sea, life in Spirit, it’s all the same to me.

Lovers of land and I do not agree.

  Life in Spirit, not in flesh.

Live by the Laws of the Sea!

When Jesus said, “Abide in me, my words in you, ask what ye will, and it shall be.”

But what is this “abiding” which he speaks?

To be filled with the Sea?

To live by sails alone?

Just the Wind and I?

Come Holy Spirit, I need thee.

Fill my sails I pray.

 

“New Wine Skin” #7

35a792f87b41dbd59e2a06030204cb03 We are well out at sea. Are you still with me?

New Wine skin episode #7. Seven is a special number. I call it the number of faith. Because God RESTED on the 7th day, his work complete. Faith is a state of REST. Jesus called all those who were weary and heavy laden to come to him, and he would give them REST. We cease from our own works and enter His! I call it “Living in the 7th Day”, or L7D for short. But I have written of these things and right now we have our case to continue proving! The case concerning “The Missing 200 Years”. And so this ship sails.

And so as we presented in last episode, how this amazing spiritual leader by the name of Polycarp, began disagreeing against the bishop of Rome concerning “The Lord’s Table” and “Passover”. As I studied the 200 years, this is the first major fork in the road I came to. This appears to be the fork which started the domino affect for all the others, and that too, makes it of supreme importance.

Polycarp had direct contact with all the Apostles and he stated plainly that a Christian form of Passover and a meal was taught to continue by them. Rome wanted to make changes to this. Polycarp refused, and others followed. What started out as a friendly disagreement would soon escalate to become very serious. Rome was determined to make this change even if it took decades, and it did. And now today we are still living it, and have not corrected it. God is calling us back to our roots.

I left the modern church system to find something closer to what Jesus actually did and taught. Large churches struggle with things like intimate meals and family atmosphere. Of course Satan made the “Lord’s Welcoming Table” as a priority on his list to hit. That Table is a simple practice of everything God’s church is meant to be! It is symbolic, and a reminder of everything our Lord’s church is meant to be. By derailing God’s emphasis on close fellowship, Satan is able to “water down”, twist, pervert, and derail many other things in the church, because without a true “Template”, then that which is discipled can be twisted too! And there is no clear vision to correct it, or even point it out.

So…with these thoughts in mind, lets get to more of the historical evidence only found in those Missing 200 years, of which this ship sails. >

Now we have an historian to read form, by the name of Eusebius. Go ahead and “Google” him if you doubt his credentials. He lived during the time of Constantine and had access to historical writings and witnesses of that time period. Again, I’m giving you excerpts only pertaining to our case at hand. This comes from his History Book #5 and chapter 23.

“A question of no small importance arose at that time. For all the parishes of all Asia, as from an older tradition, held that the 14th day of the moon, on which the Jews were commanded to sacrifice the lamb, shouldbe observed as the feast of the Saviour’s Passover.”

“But it was not the custom of the churches of the rest of the world to end it at this time…”

Synods and assemblies were held on this count…” (The synods voted in disagreement with the Asia churches.)

Chapter 24> “but the Bishops of Asia, led by Polycrates (Note: Not Polycarp) decided to hold to the old custom handed down to them…”

“We observe the exact day, neither adding, nor taking away. For in Asia also great lights have fallen to sleep…” “Among these are Phillip, one of the twelve apostles…” “And moreover, John, who was both a witness and a teacher, who reclined upon the bosom of the Lord…” “And Polycarp in Smyrna, who was a bishop and martyr…” (A few others are also mentioned. Lesser known people.)

“All these observed the 14th day of the Passover according to the Gospel, deviating in no respect, but following the rule of faith.”

“And I also, Polycrates…” “For seven of my relatives were bishops, and I am the eighth. And my relatives always observed the day when the people put away the leaven.”

“I, therefore, brethren, who have lived 65 years in the Lord, and have met with the brethren throughout the world, and have gone through every holy scripture, am not affrighted by terrifying words. For those greater than I have said ‘We ought to obey God rather than man.'”

Chapter 25: “Those in Palestine whom we have recently mentioned, Narissus and Theophilus, and with them Cassius, bishop of the church of Tyre, and Clarus of the church of Ptolemais, and those who met with them, having stated many things respecting the tradition concerning the Passover which had come to them in succession from the apostles,…”

I have trusted you with a lot today. I hope you will dissect these quotes and what they really say. They speak of the apostles more than once and how this was passed down from them. They even speak of not being afraid of terrifying words! They were threatened! And that to obey God is greater than to obey man! You can see what a division this was and going all the way back to the very apostles of our Lord! What higher authority is there? Surely not you or I today.

But somehow, by the time of Constantine, the church goes down a fork of the road leading to today and we still refuse to correct things. But a new wine skin is growing and God is correcting! This year we were all, the whole world (!), was supposed to be “in their homes”! And this happened at Passover! God was giving one and all a chance to get on board the new ship sailing! Jonathon Cahn gave a beautiful Passover via the TV, and it was awesome! God made it so easy for us to do that we will be without excuse for not hearing the Spirit of God calling to us! And now comes Pentecost! But if you disregarded Passover, how are you qualified for Pentecost? The church needs a true repentance and wake-up call!

But the call has gone forth! Even from blog sites and nobodies like this! And yet people proudly declare we will not walk in the old ways! We will not sail by the old maps! We cling to the dirt of earthly ways and desire no life at sea, powered only by the Wind!

Special messengers are speaking. God even forcefully forced us into our homes but who has eyes to see? Modern church loves the laws of the land, not the laws of the sea, as kings they claim to be.

More coming soon, but please study with diligence what you already have. Much very strong evidence has already been presented in this series of a New Wine Skin. And I would say again, for those who gave it no thought, Gideon was at a wine press, not the grind stone. Selah.

The hour is growing late. The Ten Virgins awake. But who has oil? It is found where the Wind blows at Pentecost.

The Awakening.

20200410_185021

Passover’s not important anymore, we have Easter and Lent.

But some say COVID 19 was a messenger sent!

And those who missed Passover will miss Pentecost too!

What say you?

Do you know of these things, or just casting in the dark?

There is mystery with God as he stirs the pot.

The waters are troubled, an angel touches down, but what know ye of these things?

I hope, a lot!

There is an awakening.

“New Wine Skin” #6

si-datu-bua1 The skies are growing dark as we enter these waters, and a volcano smokes in the background threatening to erupt. But we live in the magic! And that is enough.

My personal experience has been that most modern Christians don’t like the evidence I have brought to light. They don’t like what I have found in the “Missing 200 Years”. They don’t want to know and they continue to feed their pet Pastor who shelters them from hard truth. Poor things. Yes indeed, these can be dark waters to sail, but only because we have made them that way.

They only are a threat if you’re afraid to open your mind. Everyone has their own reasons for being closed minded. Maybe they think they already have all the truth, but how can they know if they never study other evidence? Some know they are wrong, but do not want to change and do not want to be reminded of it. Some don’t like it that Jesus taught “Blessed are the poor”, because they love money and spend much time pursuing it.

There are many reasons why people have allowed the “Missing 200 Years” to become the “Missing 200 Years”, and they want to keep it that way, especially “large” and “rich” churches, because what Jesus taught and started does not work as well in large congregations as it does simple home and family settings. I sincerely believe that what has come to be called the “Micro Church Movement” is the fresh Wind from heaven God is anointing to cause huge change! Like he anointed Gideon in the days of old. Hence, a new wine skin. Gideon was found at the wine press, not the grind stone.

So here we go, the sails are set for deeper waters yet. And if you’re still sailing with me, then you’re ready for your next quote.This quote was written by a man named Irenaeus. He was a disciple of Polycarp, and as such, would have had close relationship and knowledge of the man. All these strange names of people back in the day can be “googled” and proven of their existence in history. This is an account of one of the first encounters Polycarp had with a Rome Bishop. This was just the beginning of a matter that would grow much worse!

Our quote comes from: Irenaeus, Fragment 3 (Excerpts) > “And when the blessed Polycarp was sojourning in Rome in the time of Anicetus, although a slight controversy had arisen among them as to certain other points, they were at once well inclined towards each other (with regard to the matter at hand), not willing that any quarrel should arise between them upon this head. For neither could Anicetus persuade Polycarp to forego the observance (Passover) (in his own way), in as much as these things had been always so observed by John the disciple of our Lord, and by other apostles with whom he had been conversant…”

The facts are very plain. Don’t let the old language convince you to ignore these words. We can all understand what is being plainly said here “if we want to”.  No closed mind! A closed mind is a wasted space! Like the Dead Sea!!!

Notice that Polycarp is face to face with Anicetus. Notice the Bishop tries to persuade Polycarp to forego his observance of Passover! But remember that Polycarp was dicipled by the apostle John himself, and it is plainly stated that John and other apostles had been always observing the Passover! And we’re well beyond the Lord’s resurrection at this point! If Passover was to no longer be observed in some form, (and that form is given in 1st Corinthians 11), then it would have ended long ago!

Irenaeus has recorded history on paper, in his own words, an account of what happened at this meeting. Anicetus tries to persuade Polycarp to stop practicing the Passover as he was taught by the Apostle John, and as was confirmed to him by other Apostles he had conversation with. Polycarp refused to disobey the Apostles for the sake of this Rome bishop. These two agreed to disagree in peaceful terms, but this matter will escalate as time goes by. These are also the roots of the Catholic church, and if you think the Catholic church has changed from her roots, then you are easily deceived and unwilling to recognize truth. But on that note >

I’d like to point out I was in that same boat. I’m not trying to throw stones. He who lives in a glass house should not throw stones! I was working hard in deception or lack of knowledge for a long time. I was a faithful worker in the modern Protestant churches. It doesn’t matter the denomination. What matters is what is truth? Jesus said that only the truth sets us free! But now I’m so grateful for the freedom I have found! But with freedom also comes responsibility. I’m not teaching that Christians should leave modern church unless they are responsible enough to find, or start a group that is true blue to what God has actually said. But if you’re not that faithful and responsible, then don’t be surprised if you find you’re part of the five foolish virgins who woke up too late to find the flow of God’s oil, and were left behind. The wise still seek Jesus, no matter what!

So this is our quote for the day, and this is more evidence for you to give due consideration as to what each of us should do. More will come with each article, but each evidence deserves its proper time of consideration before moving to the next. If you have not studied 1st Corinthians 11 concerning what the Apostle Paul instructed as the Lord’s Supper, then you still need to. If the Lord’s Supper is as a template to all things church, then it is of supreme importance! If you have not studied in Revelation where Jesus graded both the church of Smyrna and Laodicea, then you need to. Remember, Polycarp was the Overseer of Smyrna, appointed and discipled by John himself. This man was highly qualified and faithful to his task in his day. Can we say the same of us? It’s not too late to change the set of our sails if we only will.
