Folks are asking every day
“To what church do you belong?”
I answer, “There is only one”
I think your question is wrong.”
“You mean what denomination?”
And I answer—“none.
I'm a member of the body
Of Jesus Christ, God's Son.”
You cannot join this body
You are added by the Lord.
Denominations are another thing.
You join them with a card.
The Church which is Christs body--
Demands, “Be born again!”
To join denominations--
Simply shake the preachers hand.
Let's forget denominations
And recognize one faith.
As one body, stand together,
I plead for Jesus' sake.
If we're regenerated
Washed in the blood of Christ,
There should be no division--
We're one in our Father's sight.

Time Is Running Out
THE TRANSFORMING OF AMERICA BACK TO IT'S BEGINNING STARTS WITH YOU!
At every tick of the watch thousands of souls are hurled into eternity. As the sun rises in the morning millions are in the land of the living, some serving their Maker according to His Word, but a great number serving their own desires and the enemy of souls.
The sun goes down in the evening. Only a few hours have passed, but oh, what a change has taken place! Many thousands of precious souls have spent their final day on earth. They have crossed the last span of life and passed over the river of death where they are now waiting for the day of judgment. A few have crossed the river in peace, knowing that all was well with them and that heaven would be their future abode; but many have died in fear. Also, during this short space of time more than this number have come into existence to follow in the steps of those who have passed away. What a solemn thought-the scene in the day of judgment when "we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ," (Rom. 14:10), "and before him shall be gathered all nations." (Matt. 25:32)
Dear friend, are you prepared to meet God? Do you know where you will spend eternity? Take close inventory of your life today! You have no promise of tomorrow.
"Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." Isa. 55:6-7.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16.
WHERE IS THE TEMPLE OF GOD TODAY?
Joh_2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. ---by this temple, Jesus was referring to Himself; He was raised up after 3d ays in the grave.
1Co_3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1Co_3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1Co_6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
A saved Christian (repented and forgiven) has christ in himself and thus is the temple.
ph 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Luk_17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
Joh_18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
