True churches build true Christians

Abundant Grace Church


There are so many churches within the United States and this region.  Although there may be so many churches, or at least social gatherings, not every church is making true Christians.  The purpose of a church is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the entirety of the Word of God (Matthew 4:4; Acts 2:42; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; Matthew 28:19-20).

When churches fail to train God’s people to be soldiers in His army, those people are set up for failure against a very deceptive and determined enemy (1 Peter 5:8; 2 Corinthians 11:14; Genesis 3:1; Ephesians 6:11).  True churches build true Christians by preparing them for war (2 Timothy 2:3-4).  Not a war of people against people but a war of spirit against spirit (Ephesians 6:12).  The spirit of a Christian against the spirit of the demonic army.  Within the natural military time, effort, finances, and a lot of discipline are used to train soldiers to fight for that nation.  Why do so many Christians lack the training to stand for the kingdom of God?  The answer is the difference between churches being social gatherings as opposed to true churches building true Christians. 

Cities, towns, and regions do not need more churches; they need churches to be true churches that train the army of God how to stand against the enemy of their soul, the enemy of God’s Word, and the enemy of God’s kingdom (Ephesians 6:11-18).  Until Christians can be the soldiers they are meant to be, they will not endure the battle against their spiritual enemy (James 1:12; Matthew 24:13; Hebrews 10:36).  It is not too late.  It is not too late for Christians to find true churches training the soldiers of God.  It is not too late for pastors to begin to lead their churches in the paths of righteousness and disciple them in this training.  It is not too late for various churches to unite, not within one building, but under the same mindset, vision, and purpose, to build God’s army to conquer the opposition against the people of God (1 Corinthians 1:10; Romans 12:4-5).  Until God’s people stand as the Bible declares, the spiritual enemies will continue to have victory and mock God.  The Bible covers spiritual warfare too much for churches and Christians to not understand how to combat the spiritual enemies they face within their lives. 

The lives of Christians depend on the training received within the churches they attend (1 Corinthians 16:13; 1 Corinthians 15:58).  The eternity of so many people depends on the discipleship received within the churches of how to live for God that is according to His standards.  When churches do not build soldiers of God but focus on gathering people, Christianity becomes weak within the homes of the people, within the region, within the local churches, and within the nation.  Churches must return to the Word of God and the holiness it requires for God’s people as opposed to being relevant, intentional, and lukewarm (Revelation 3:16).  The great falling away is taking place among the many people who are gathered rather than discipled (1 Timothy 4:1-2; 2 Corinthians 11:3; Hebrews 3:12-14).  As long as the presence of God is still found on the earth, it is not too late.

May every Christian desire to walk with God daily.  May every church desire to disciple God’s people making them strong soldiers of God.  May every pastor preach the unadulterated Word of God providing strength, boldness, peace, supply, and holiness for and in the people of God.
