BETWEEN THE TRANSFORMED HEARTS, THE DENOMINATIONS AND THE BUILDINGS, WHAT MADE THE CHURCH YESTERDAY IN THE TIME OF THE APOSTLES WHOSE NAMES ARE WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE? AND WHAT MAKES THE CHURCH TODAY IN THIS GENERATION FULL OF APOSTLES, PROPHETS, PASTORS, DOCTORS, EVANGELISTS, CARDINALS, ARCHBISHOPS, BISHOPS, PRIESTS…?

         In truth, in the house of God which is the Church, it is the stone which is the word of God and the foundation. The word of God which is the stone, the foundation of God’s house or church is nothing else than the Lord Jesus Christ; this stone or word of God in us, makes us become the church or house of God.

          Jesus Christ is the word, which means the stone that is laid in the middle of us for the foundation of the house of God; as such, every house that is elevated on this foundation; this stone which is laid, will never collapse no matter the wind, the storm…; which means that the man who takes this word of God for support (who believes in it) will not be destroyed. That is why prophet Isaiah prophesised on the coming of this stone, that is the word of God which is Jesus Christ, making the people to understand that he who will take this stone for support will not be destroyed as it is said: “therefore thus says the LordGOD,“Behold, I am the one who has laidas a foundation in Zion,a stone,a tested stone,a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation:‘Whoever believes will not be in haste’” (Isaiah 28/16).

          This stone or word of God which is Jesus Christ, while coming in this world to become the support of all those who do not want to become destroyed by the eternal death or by the maleficent word and spirit, appeared like a simple man in the stomach of a woman called Mary. And this stone or word of God received the name Jesus, the name that the angel gave Joseph the spouse of Mary who wanted to put her away, believing that Mary knew another man apart from him to become pregnant; meanwhile it was by the Holy Spirit. But the angel said to him: “...Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1/20-21).

          Therefore, the stone taking the name Jesus, it was necessary that one among those whom he had called should carry his name Peter. That is why among the twelve that he had called, he gave the name Peter to Simon, as it is written: “He appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter)” (Mark 3/16). Therefore, Simon became Peter, and they sometimes called him Simon Peter. Jesus Christ in the territory of Caesarea Philippi asked his disciples to tell him who he was. Some were telling him that he is the Son of Man, others were telling him that he is John the Baptist, others again were saying that he is Jeremiah or one of the prophets. Simon Peter answered him: “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God”; and the Lord Jesus hearing this response said to Simon Peter, Bar-Jonah that it is not flesh and blood that have revealed it to him, but God his Father who is in heaven; and that it is on this word of revelation which is Peter that he will build all of the kingdom of heaven. That is why he said to him: “...you are Peter, and on this rockI will build my church, and the gates of hellshall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16/18).

          Therefore, where the stone which is the word of God is laid or carried, there also will riseup the church which is the house of God. The house of God is built on the stone, which means the house of God is built on the word of God. That is why the Lord Jesus made the people to understand that he who keeps his stone in him, God’s house will rise up in him. Therefore, he who will keep his word in him, this word will bring his Father and him to make their home in him; that is why Jesus says: “…If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him” (John 14/23).

          Therefore, where the stone is laid, there also will rise up the church, or again, where the word of God is carried, there also will rise up the church of God. It is because of the lack of understanding of scriptures that symbols and customs are born; for when you see a head of state, a minister, a governor… laying the first stone somewhere, it means that something will be built on this place. When these people lay the first stone, there is already assurance that something will be built in this place. For Jesus being the stone or the living word, we must also come near him in order to become livingstones or words. That is why it is said: “you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood…” (1 Peter 2/4-5). Therefore, Apostle Peter was not only the dean of the apostles, but he had also received the recommendation from the Lord Jesus to strengthen the others when he himself will be strengthened as it is written: “...but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers” (Luke 22/32).

          The Lord Jesus said to the first disciples not to go far from Jerusalem because they were to receive the helper, the teacher, the preacher, the apostolate, power, authority. And the day of Pentecost, feast of the Jews, they received this spirit, and on this same day, the mission started, given that they had received the recommendation which is; after receiving power, the Holy Spirit coming on them, they will start bearing witness of him in Jerusalem, in Judea, in Samaria and up to the extremities of the world (Acts 1/8). Apostle Peter started preaching Jesus Christ to the people up to the point where, when these last heard life being preached and found themselves to be dead, they were too cut in their hearts and they asked Peter and the rest of the apostles what to do in order to also become alive through this word as it is said: “Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2/37-38).

          All those who listened to this word were baptised and were born again in the heart, spirit, thought, feeling; and not in the simple appellation of “born again” as it is the case today. On that day, the number of disciples increased to around 3000 souls in the church and not in the flesh as it is the case today. That is why it is said: “So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls” (Acts 2/41). They had disappeared in the fleshly feeling, thought and spirit to appear in the feeling, thought and spirit of God that became their own life. Therefore, this multitude was only one heart because they had received the same spirit, which means the same heart. That is why it is said: “Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common” (Acts 4/32).

          When the stone or the word of God is kept or carried in the heart, this heart becomes the church or the house of God. Apostle Peter knowing that God gives his Holy Spirit to those who keep his word said: “And God, who knows the heart, bore witness to them, by giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us” (Acts 15/8), and not the spirit with which the devil fills majority of people today and which is taken for the Holy Spirit. The heart which is circumcised by the word of Christ which is the sword, receives the alliance of God, the man then becomes the house of God, the house of good, of light, of fire, of power… That is why it is said: “but Christ is faithful over God's house as a son. And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope” (Hebrews 3/6). Apostle Peter knowing that God must dwell in the hearts said: “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3/15).

          Apostle Paul knowing that all the pain and suffering that the men must bear to build the house of God or house of good, which is to cultivate or live love through the word of God said: “so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love... you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3/17-19). This suffering was not to be lived firstly in the seeking of money in order to raise a building for house of God, for it permits evil to fill the hearts. When the apostles arrived in towns or nations with this sword of circumcision, those who were accepting the circumcision (this word) were becoming in alliance with God or with the eternal good. In those times, there was good because the man was willing and seeking the heart of God for the church of God or the house of God; but today, people suffer to construct big, luxurious and decorated buildings where God will never dwell, while leaving their hearts defiled and dirty, where the devil dwells; for God dwells in a clean, holy and pureheart. Meanwhile it is said: “The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man” (Acts 17/24).

          That is why when Apostle Paul was in Ephesus, being separated from those who were troubling, he taught the word of God in the school of a man called Tyrannus, and there, was the church of God in Ephesus. When he arrived in Rome, he rent a house where he received people and was preaching the gospel of Christ, and it was the church of God in Rome. That is why it is said: “He lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him” (Acts 28/30); and everywhere the apostles were arriving with the word, all those who were receiving this word in spirit and in truth were becoming members of the body of Christ; being gathered, it is the body of Christ or the church of God that was gathered, for example, in Rome and in other areas, those who received Christ were becoming the church of Rome, of Galatia, of Ephesus, of Corinth, of Philippi….

          Given that we must not become disciple of a man, but rather of God, we must be disciplined to the recommendation or will of God and not to that of man. We must be faithful to the will of God and not to that of man, which means we are not faithful or disciple of the man who transmits us the word of God, but rather faithful or disciple of God through what the man of God transmits us. If that was the case, there would have been no division as we seetoday. Yesterday in the church of Corinth, the glory of man had rose in the middle of the people, and when apostle Paul heard this division of the Corinthians, he made them understand that we are neither of Paul nor Apollos, nor Cephas, but that we are all of Christ, for it is Christ who has called us and we are all baptised in him. In God, it is the Holy Spirit that teaches, there is only one Lord, only one faith, only one baptism and only one God. The church which dwelled yesterday in the hearts, today, is recognised by the buildings and denominations.

          The evil has filled the hearts of the men of this generation because the men are attached to the denominations and sacrifice themselves in the construction of buildings, but do not seek the transformation of the heart that comes from the hearing and living of the word of Christ; it is because of this that the word of lies, of flattery, of deception, of seduction takes the first place in these churches today.

          After the dead of the apostles, the papacy was established and the pope proclaimed himself to be the representative of Apostle Peter, he has created schools and seminaries where they form the priest, and later on, this last can become bishop, archbishop, cardinal, and sometimes, after having become cardinal, he can be established Pope; but nobody among these priests and others is called apostle, prophet, pastor, doctor, evangelist. They baptise babies at the price of money… The denominations have taken the place of the church of Christ in this world. We have the catholic denomination called Catholic Church, reputed in the construction of big buildings, it works in idolatry and in the baptism of babies at the price of money; the protestant denomination called Protestant Church, the presbyterian, evangelical, baptist…, that are too near to the first, big buildings are also in the rendez-vous here, it works in the baptism of babies at the price of an amount of money, and in the selling of titles of church elder, deacon, deaconess; another denomination is known in the name of Jehovah Witness, they recognise themselves to be Christians, but rejecting to be witnesses of Jesus Christ.

          Another known as the Seventh Day Adventist Church; there is also a movement of denominations called pentecostal or awakened churches; these associative denominations known as churches by the men are many in this world. Therefore, today, the men are attached to the denomination and not to the word of Christ which must make them become the church of God. They invest in big buildings by putting in luxury and not in the documentation for the edification in the word of God, nor in their time to seek to read or to be taught in order to become the house of God. Meanwhile it is the edification in the word of Christ that brings the man to become the habitation of God in spirit as it is said: “In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God bythe Spirit” (Ephesians 2/22).

          Today, the people find and consider as big church; big luxurious buildings, the important number of people gathered, with the rich men within and high personalities by whom they glorify themselves. Therefore, when they find few people in a place, they talk of small church, and even ask themselves the question to know which kind of church is this which can be in a home? They ignore that the apostles did construct buildings for church, but by the word that they carried and which they were preaching, they were bringing the hearts to become the church of God. Therefore, this generation lacks the veritable word of Christ. That is why it is dived in confusion. It is money and the glory of man that have the first place today in these places where, people willing to possess it, they become pastors, and when chairs and musical instruments are put somewhere, this place becomes the church without the word of sword for the circumcision of the heart; and also without the house of God for church.

          The church has become a family enterprise where the husband is apostle or pastor, and the wife is evangelist, pastor or prophetess. Today, the attribution of big church is given to those who have much money, the popularity, and also high personalities within; those who do not have this are considered as small churches. That is why money, the glory of man, magic, lies, fake, swindling, witchcraft… have filled these places today, and in this ignorance, many people think that in God, there are old or new churches.

In truth, the word of God that must bring the hearts of men to become the hearts of God is rare today, and it is even difficult for those who find it to consider it as the greatest source of value, of goodness and of joy above everything.

          One day, I met some men who were telling me that they are apostles established by a man called KACOU Philip; they were telling me that for somebody to become apostle, it is KACOU Philip who must establish him. I asked them who this individual was, and they answered that he is a prophet of God. I asked them that in whose house? And I made them understand that they are in error because they understand nothing of the word of God. I also made them understand that when the Lord Jesus came, he said that all the prophets and the law prophesised until John. Henceforth, the good news of the kingdom of heaven is announced. That is why God has established in his church firstly the apostles, secondly the prophets… but how does it happens that it is the prophet who establishes the apostles, for it is said: “And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers…” (1 Corinthians 12/28).

          I made them to remark that in the time of the law and of the prophets, there were no apostles; but in the time of the good news of the kingdom of heaven or of the gospel of Christ in the new alliance or New Testament, we had apostles and prophets. I took them the example of prophet AGABUS who, when the disciples were going to announce the gospel in Jerusalem, he took the belt of one of them and said while tying his feet and hands that in the same manner, the Jews in Jerusalem were to tie the one to whom the belt belonged, and the person to whom the belt belonged was Apostle Paul as it is said: “While we were staying for many days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. And coming to us, he took Paul's belt and bound his own feet and hands and said, “Thus says the Holy Spirit, ‘This is how the Jewsat Jerusalem will bind the man who owns this belt and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles” (Acts 21/10-11).

          When the prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch, they announced that there will be famine as it is said: “Now in these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. And one of them named Agabus stood up and foretold by the Spirit that there would be a great famine over all the world (this took place in the days of Claudius). So the disciples determined, every one according to his ability, to send relief to the brothersliving in Judea. And they did so, sending it to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul” (Acts 11/27-30), and I made these last to understand that it is from verse 6 of Matthew 25which they did not understand that KACOU Philip draw his mission; meanwhile this is only a parable that they do not understand.The Lord Jesus talks of a parable of five virgins who were wise and five virgins who were foolish,and who were waiting he who had to marry them… (Matthew 25/1-13).

         The ten virgins who were waiting the bridegroom are us today who are waiting the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The five wise virgins represent certain Christians who wait the Lord Jesus at all time in spirit and in truth, and the five foolish virgins are certain Christians who wait the Lord in the human belief or faith. The oil in the lamps of the five wise virgins is the faith of certain Christians that will not go off till the day they will enter the kingdom of heaven; and the oil in the lamps of the five foolish virgins that goes off is the faith of certain Christians which, before the coming of the Lord or their call to leave the earth, goes off, as such, they will be unable to enter the kingdom of heaven.

         You have to understand that in the New Testament, it is much more in the teaching of Jesus Christ in parables that many people go astray. That is why I told these apostles established by KACOU Philip that your prophet and you have knocked against the stone. With all this, I have understood that people are going astray and they will perish because of lack of knowledge or understanding. But the Lord Jesus is helping us in these end times, and only those who will recognise the value of this message will say thanks to the sender for his favours brought to their souls for the eternity.

CHAMPI Apostle not behalf of man, nor by a man but by Jesus Christ and God the Father. God’s power is the knowledge. To know, avoid sin and to be free from the eternal death. (John 8/32)
