Eph 2:19-22 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
The church is erected on the foundation of Jesus Christ our Lord and then the Apostles built it on top of it. On top of it, every generation built this church and today we are on the church standing. We stand on top of all the saints who truly built the church for Christ. We stand on their sacrifice and service. What a privilege to stand on it where our foundation is Christ. This is standing on the promise. A promise that one day this church will gloriously be married to the Bridegroom.
What is our responsibility? We have to expand its borders. We should not build something that culminates but to expand until the final revival and the glorious coming of our Lord. The final revival will culminate it and nobody knows when it will be. One thing is for sure that revival will be a courageous group of believers who will fight ferociously (unrelenting intensity) with zeal for the Lord and the manifestation of the Holy Spirit will be genuine and powerful.
How can we expand? We expand by standing under them or having the next generation to stand on top of us. That means we need to serve the next generation and not be served by them. Worldly wisdom will not allow anybody to sand on top of us that is oppression in their sense, but godly wisdom is to allow the next generation to stand on top us and we bear the burden of them and support them as we are supported by our previous generations, apostles and ultimately our Rock Jesus Christ. Lets us expand our borders wherever we are, and according to our ministry that is given by the Lord. Take courage and be valiant, because the devil is using his full army against us. But the gates of hell will not prevail. Amen
