“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” Jn. 15:16.
We have established from scriptures that every believer is ordained a fruit bearer, which means winning the unsaved to Christ Jn. 15:1-2; Mk. 16:15-16. This task is vital in experiencing the fullness of the benefits of the kingdom Pro. 11:30; 3:35. We have said further that it is not enough to win souls for Christ, the souls won must abide in the faith for the believer to qualify for the benefits Jn. 15:16. This is why gathering the soul into church is vital.
The significance of ingathering of souls into the church.
Christ promised a new life of glory for the believer 2Pet. 1:3. This life of glory is all encompassing, it include diverse inheritance the believer is entitled to enjoy Rev. 4:12. How does the church effect this in the new convert’s life?
Revelation empowers the believer to take delivery of his inheritance in Christ; until we can see it, we can’t take delivery Gen. 13:14-15; 2Cor. 3:18.
It is by the ministry of the teaching priests that the eyes of understanding of the believer is opened, and they are located in the church 2Chr. 15:3-5; Isa. 30:20-21.
The scriptures make us to understand that the church is a mysterious place; where God distributes His blessing to His children Psa. 65:4; 32:13-15,
Jesus is Lord!
