John 3:14  And just as Moses lifted high the serpent in the Desert,

so must the Son of Man be lifted up,

John 3:15  in order that every one who trusts in Him may have the

Life of the Ages."

John 3:16  For so greatly did God love the world that He gave His only

Son, that every one who trusts in Him may not perish but may have

the Life of Ages.

John 3:17  For God did not send His Son into the world to judge the

world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

John 3:18  He who trusts in Him does not come up for judgement. He

who does not trust has already received sentence, because he has not

his trust resting on the name of God's only Son.

As believers we need to begin to work at the details of the New Covenant

and what our Covenant relationships are, and those are all found on the pages

of this website:

....."This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord

I will put my laws in their minds

and write them on their hearts.

No longer will a man teach his neighbour,

or a man his brother, saying,

`Know the Lord'

because they will all know me,

from the least of them to the greatest.

For I will forgive their wickedness, and will remember them no more."

MAN


WHAT IS MY FUNCTION IN THE BODY OF CHRIST?

WHAT IS MY ROLE IN BRINGING UNITY TO THE BODY OF CHRIST?

WE WILL KNOW WITH COMPLETE CLARITY AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE PAGES OF THIS WEBSITE,

BUT FIRST LETS LOOK AT WHAT BRINGS US TO - 


MUTUALITY/MEMBERSHIP

OF THE BODY OF CHRIST


"THERE IS ONE BODY AND ONE SPIRIT -

JUST AS YOU WERE CALLED TO ONE HOPE WHEN YOU WERE CALLED -

ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL,

WHO IS OVER ALL AND THROUGH ALL AND IN ALL."

                                                                                                          Ephesians 4:4 -6.


If you are one with & desire the following, you are truly in membership with the Body of Christ: -


ONE BODY - the body of Christ

"For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ.

Just as each of us has one body with many members, and those members do not all have the same function,

so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others."

                                                                                       Colossians 2:9,10. Romans 12:4,5.


ONE SPIRIT – receiving the Spirit of Christ

 "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth,

for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshippers must worship Him in

spirit and Truth.

You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And

if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, your body is

dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus

from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies

through His Spirit, who lives in you."

                                                                                      John 4:23,24. Romans 8:9 -11.


ONE HOPE - hope of our call as Christians, we hope to be with the Lord forever in glory

 "God did this by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take

hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged.

We who have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the

curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has now become a high priest forever,

in the order of Melchizedek.

..... while we wait for the blessed hope - the glorious appearing of our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

To them God has chosen to make known among the gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is

Christ in you, the hope of glory."

                                                                   Hebrews 6:18. Titus 2:13. Colossians 1:27.


ONE LORD - anyone who confesses Jesus to be Lord, that Jesus Christ has come in the

flesh; that person is from God

 "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.

Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom.

That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the

dead, you will be saved.

This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges Jesus Christ has come in the

flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.

                                                                   Matthew 10:32, Luke 23:42, Romans 10:9, 1 John 4:2,3. 


ONE FAITH - the faith through which we have been saved

 ...that everyone who believes may have eternal life in Him.

I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life and will not

be condemned;

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;

and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."

I have come into the world as a light, so that no-one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may

have life in his name.

                                                                            John 3:15, 5:24, 11:25,26a, 12:46, and 20:31.


ONE BAPTISM - all who are baptised into the name of the Lord are one in Him

 For we are all baptised by one Spirit into one body......

...for all of you who are baptized into Christ have clothed yourself with Christ.

...having been buried with Him through your faith in the power of God, who raised Him from the dead.

                                                                   1 Corinthians 12:13, Galatians 3:27, Colossians 2:12.


ONE GOD - believe in the same personal God as our Father

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your

Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!

For you did not receive a spirit that makes you slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of Sonship,

and by Him we cry, ABBA, Father.

                                                                   Psalm 68:5, Matthew 7:11, Romans 8:15.

 

But the fruit of the (holy) spirit, [the work which His presence within accomplishes] - is love, joy (gladness),

peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness, (benevolence), faithfulness;

(meekness, humility) gentleness, self control (self restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law

(that can bring a charge).

                                                                                         Galatians 5:22,23. [Amplified]

 

YOUR CHRISTIAN STRONGHOLD

You can be part of a Christian stronghold if you implement what you learn on this website.

 

But we shall lovingly hold to the truth, and shall in all respects grow up into union with Him who is our Head, even Christ.

Dependent on Him, the whole body--its various parts closely fitting and firmly adhering to one another-- grows by the aid of every contributory link, with power proportioned to the need of each individual part, so as to build itself up in a spirit of love.

Ephesians 4:15, 16. Weymouth Translation

 

Please note that in the Bible in Basic English the word stronghold is translated as 'high tower'.

A high tower places you out of reach to the enemy,

 

My God, my Rock, in him will I put my faith; my breastplate, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my safe place;

my saviour, who keeps me safe from the violent man.

2 Samuel 22:3   [Bible in Basic English]

 

The Lord will be a high tower for those who are crushed down, a high tower in times of trouble;

Psalm 9:9   [Bible in Basic English]

 

The Lord is my Rock, my walled town, and my saviour; my God, my Rock, in him will I put my faith; my breastplate, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Psalm 18:2   [Bible in Basic English]

 

The Lord is my light and my salvation; who is then a cause of fear to me? the Lord is the strength of my life; who is a danger to me?

Psalm 27:1  Of David.   [Bible in Basic English]

 

He is my strength, and my Rock; my high tower, and my saviour; my keeper and my hope: he gives me authority over my people.

Psalm 144:2   [Bible in Basic English]

 

Our ultimate destiny is to be priest/kings. How awesome is that?!?

And it is intended for you!!!

 

And be yourselves also like living stones that are being built up into a spiritual house, to become a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

1Peter 2:5   [Weymouth Translation]

 

...and from Jesus Christ, the truthful witness, the first of the dead to be born to Life, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth.

To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins with His own blood,

Rev 1:6  and has formed us into a Kingdom, to be priests to God, His Father--to Him be ascribed the glory and the power until the Ages of the Ages. Amen.

Revelation 1:5, 6   [Weymouth Translation]

 

...and did make us kings and priests to his God and Father, to him is the glory and the power to the ages of the ages! Amen.

Revelation 1:6   [Young's literal Translation]

 

And Melchizedek, king of Salem, the priest of the Most High God, took bread and wine,

Genesis 14:18  [Bible in Basic English]

 

The Lord has made an oath, and will not take it back. You are a priest for ever, after the order of Melchizedek.

Psalm 110:4   Bible in Basic English

 

For every High Priest is chosen from among men, and is appointed to act on behalf of men in matters relating to God, in order to offer both gifts and sin-offerings,

and must be one who is able to bear patiently with the ignorant and erring, because he himself also is beset with infirmity.

And for this reason he is required to offer sin-offerings not only for the people but also for himself.

And no one takes this honourable office upon himself, but only accepts it when called to it by God, as Aaron was.

So Christ also did not claim for Himself the honour of being made High Priest, but was appointed to it by Him who said to

Him, "MY SON ART THOU: I HAVE TO-DAY BECOME THY FATHER;"

as also in another passage He says, "THOU ART A PRIEST FOR EVER, BELONGING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."

For Jesus during his earthly life offered up prayers and entreaties, crying aloud and weeping as He pleaded with Him who

was able to bring Him in safety out of death, and He was delivered from the terror from which He shrank.

Although He was God's Son, yet He learned obedience from the sufferings which He endured;

and so, having been made perfect, He became to all who obey Him the source and giver of eternal salvation.

For God Himself addresses Him as a High Priest for ever, belonging to the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 5:1 - 10   [Weymouth Translation]

 

The old order of the Levitical priesthood has been replaced by that of the Melchizedekal priesthood, a kingly priesthood.

 

Where Jesus has gone before us, as a high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 6:20   [Bible in Basic English.]

 

For this Melchizedek, the king of Salem, a priest of the Most High God, who gave Abraham his blessing, meeting him when he came back after putting the kings to death,

Hebrews 7:1  .[Bible in Basic English]

 

Now if it was possible for things to be made complete through the priests of the house of Levi for the law was given to the people in connection with them, what need was there for another priest who was of the order of Melchizedek and not of the order of Aaron?

Hebrews 7:11   [Bible in Basic English]

 

For it has been witnessed of him, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 7:17  [Bible in Basic English]

 

Because the law made nothing complete, and in its place there is a better hope, through which we come near to God.

And as this is not without the taking of an oath

For those were made priests without an oath, but this one was made a priest with an oath by him who says of him,

The Lord gave his oath, which he will not take back, that you are a priest for ever;

By so much is it a better agreement which we have through Jesus.

And it is true that there have been a great number of those priests, because death does not let them go on for ever;

But this priest, because his life goes on for ever, is unchanging.

So that he is fully able to be the saviour of all who come to God through him, because he is ever living to make prayer to God for them.

It was right for us to have such a high priest, one who is holy and without evil, doing no wrong, having no part with sinners,

and made higher than the heavens:

Who has no need to make offerings for sins every day, like those high priests, first for himself, and then for the people;

because he did this once and for ever when he made an offering of himself.

Hebrews 7:19 - 27   [Bible in Basic English]

 

And now they sing a new song. "It is fitting," they say, "that Thou shouldst be the One to take the book And break its seals;

Because Thou hast been offered in sacrifice, And hast purchased for God with Thine own blood Some out of every tribe and language and people and nation,

And hast formed them into a Kingdom to be priests to our God, And they reign over the earth."

Revelation 5:9, 10   [Weymouth Translation]

 

As shown conclusively in  the above scriptures, we saints/believers are priests and kings in the order of Melchizedek. Therefore, as night follows day the message is quite clear-

 

DESTROY THE ENEMIES OF GOD ON EARTH WITH OUR MOUTH'S - UNTIL THE CHURCH IS PERFECTED. *

 

The priests in the Melchizedekal order, the five-fold ministry, Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Evangelist and Teacher, [see the pages further on in this website] and all its connections and affiliates and the saints are responsible for accomplishing the above task.

Training in priesthood of the above order is essentially what this website, the books of the SING TO THE LORD A NEW SONG series is all about.

 

SING TO THE LORD A NEW SONG, and other in the books are available at

www.amazon.com/author/dougvermeulen

The various aspects of operation are linked together to show how God has laid down the way it should be done, both

individually and corporately.

 

Firstly, we need to see Jesus in His various manifestations showing some of the aspects of His fullness, and be saved as a result.

 

Secondly, we need to understand how we fit in the body of Christ, and how the Body of Christ move together to

accomplish what the Father wants.

 

Thirdly, He wants to see us become temples of the Living God, so that we are fit to live our lives as a royal priesthood.

 

Fourthly, as a royal priesthood we should move in kingly victory against the enemy, and in our daily lives.

 

His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and

authorities in the heavenly realms, accordingly to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 3:10,11   [New International Version]

 

To which of the angels did God ever say, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?

Hebrews 1:13, 14   [New International Version]

 

Since he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those

who are being made holy.

The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: “This is the covenant I will make with them after time, says

the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.”

Hebrews 10:13-16   [New International Version]

 

As we study the scriptures, it becomes increasingly clear that it is the saints/believers who have to bring satan under

Jesus’ feet; and then by implication have satan under the saints’ feet.

What husband would tolerate his bride's life being lorded over by other individuals; while being married or even before

being married, engaged to Him?!!! We are the bride of Christ.

And one of the seven angels who had the seven vessels in which were the seven last punishments, came and said to me,

Come here, and see the bride, the Lamb's wife.

Revelation 21;9   [Bible in Basic English]

 

Furthermore, the husband in the saint’s/believers case has been given `the keys of the kingdom' as an engagement present!

The Lord wants to marry a bride of equal standing. [The husband by His actions will have restored her honour and standing to her;

in what was rightfully hers in the first place!]

 

“…..and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Matthew 16:18b, 1   [New International Version]

 

This website lays the foundation; and Book 6 of SING TO THE LORD A NEW SONG covers the establishing of Christian strongholds,

by means of studying the Bible Gates mentioned in the Old and New testaments in the Bible.

Firstly, there is an explanation of what the Melchizedekal priesthood is, in terms of the 5-fold Ministry, and shows that this is the only way to construct a Christian stronghold.

The Bible Gates study explains the nuts and bolts of the Melchizedekal priesthood.

The format is simple; and the book gives a step-by-step procedure to ‘make your stronghold’ in God; both individually and corporately. The procedure follows the detailed instructions given by God for the construction of the Bible Gates for the walled city of Jerusalem.

 

The book addresses the situation of building a Christian stronghold from which to take the fight to the enemy, and provides further detail on the subject of strongholds, after doing the information in this website.

 

For the arms with which we are fighting are not those of the flesh, but are strong before God for the destruction of high places;

For we overthrow arrogant 'reckonings,' and every stronghold that towers high in defiance of the knowledge of God, and we carry off every thought as if into slavery--into subjection to Christ;

2 Corinthians 10:4, 5   [Bible in Basic English]

 

The above scriptures all show the spiritual responsibility the priests/ministers of God have towards the saints/church of God.

One is left in no doubt about ones accountability to God and man.

 

 So what is it we have to do?

 

We have to build Christian strongholds, which are impenetrable to satan and his minions.

 

Because of the Scriptures above there needs to be clear guidelines for ministers/believers to operate under, and with, in order to build the Christian strongholds, and here we see a sample page
