The Church Triumphant is alive and well!

There is turmoil in our world, the only solace I can find is in knowing that God is, ultimately, in control. Whether you are a believer or not doesn’t change the fact that we are actually living in the end times. If you have knowledge of the scriptures you know that all that is happening in the world was fore-told and our hope is in knowing that Jesus is coming soon, Maranatha is my daily cry! Come Lord Jesus, come!

The words penned by Gloria Gaither inspire me this morning, if you want to hear the song in it’s entirety go to this link: https://youtu.be/wQhI09Zosts

This is the part that means so much to me as a member of a follower of the Way of Jesus the Christ!

God has always had a people. 
Many foolish conqueror has made the mistake 
of thinking that because he’d driven the Church of Jesus Christ out of sight, 
that he had stilled it’s voice and snuffed out it’s life 
but God has always had a people 
The powerful current of a river is not diminished 
because it is forced to flow underground. 
The purest water is the stream that bursts crystal clear into the sunlight 
after it has forced its way through solid rock. 
There are charlatans, who like Simon the magician 
sought to barter on the open market this power which cannot be bought or sold 
but God has always had a people; 
men who could not be bought and women who were beyond purchase 
God has always had a people. 
There have been times of affluence and prosperity 
where the Church’s message has been nearly diluted into oblivion 
by those who sought to make it socially attractive re-organized and financially profitable. 
It’s been gold plated, draped in purple and encrusted in jewels. 
It’s been misrepresented, ridiculed, lauded and scorned. 
These followers of Jesus Christ have been according to the whim of the times 
elevated as sacred leaders and martyred as heretics. 
Yet through it all there marches on this powerful army 
God’s chosen people who can not be bought, flattered, murdered or stilled 
On through the ages they march. This church, God’s church Alive and well

Maranatha
