The End-Time Gathering of New Covenant Apostles for the Final Labour of Separating the Wheat from the Tares of Christendom
8. Building the End-time Church or Messianic Community
In order to have true apostles, you must have a Church or Community that sustains them. The Book of Acts makes it perfectly clear that this was so. You cannot read the Acts of the Apostles and escape the undeniable fact that the apostles were first prayed for and sustained by the qodeshim (saints, set-apart ones).
But what Community or Church is going to sustain the end-time nevi'im (prophets)? The Baptists? Pentecostals? Methodists? Episcopalians? Catholics? Messianic Jews? The answer is: none of them.
The New Testament Assembly or Community of Yahweh was not divided into different denominations with conflicting doctrines and practices. Though Messiah uses all these bodies to differing degrees, and has done so for centuries. it is clear from scripture that these organisations represent a mixture of the wheat and the tares. And the two cannot grow together indefinitely.
When the tares are burned out of Christendom all that will be left is one single, unified and empowered Body. It will be a denominationless one. Its members will simply call themselves "believers", "qodeshim (saints, set-apart ones)", or "Christians", etc.. They will owe no allegiance to synods or general assemblies where doctrine and practice is determined by democratic vote. Their allegiance will be to Messiah through His chosen end-time apostles. They will partake of one Master's (Lord's) Supper only administered under one apostolic authority.
Furthermore, this end-time Messianic Community (Church) will not be some legalistic entity like the Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Mormons or Jehovah's Witnesses. It's authority will reside in the apostolic power that guides it and not in bogus priesthood claims.
The authority of the end-time Messianic Community (Church) will be in its powerful teachings, its supernatural works, its total felicity to scripture, its anointed apostles, and, above all, its extraodinary manifestation of divine ahavah (love).
