"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water'." (John 7:38)

"Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual." (1Cor. 2:12-13)

The Nation Of Christianity

Our Christian life should precede our allegiance to our nationality. We are as sojourners in a strange land, not nationalists connected with a particular faith. While we tread the grounds of our nationality in the flesh, it only affords us our unique customs and traditions in which our bodies can manifest a particular and peculiar dance and song to God; yet in Spirit, there is no disdain, no differences, nor division in relation to other Christians around the world. There is neither Greek nor Jew, man or woman, free or slave; only a unification of individuals, like grains of sand that comprise the terrain. Together in Spirit we are one nation sending up our incense of prayer and worship to our Lord Jesus (Revelation 5:8), to the glory of God and to our ultimate inheritance of the new kingdom as the complete and perfect bride of Christ.


"And they sang a new song, saying, 'Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.'" (Revelation 5:9-10)
