A Great Doctrine to us as a saved people was to build upon this Eph. 2:15-21.

From the Elder: The Old Church of God of the New Covenant, that all Christian all New Covenant church people one can go read about in the scriptures, as Paul tells us in 1 Cor. 1:2- Gal. 2:13- we do live in this day as Eph. 2:15-21 says we should, we are that church people who God says will come to this earth as Jer. 31:31 and Heb. 8:1-13 tells us we can now and should live as. So we are this in the scriptures** first there was a church under the Old Covenant and was what we were before the coming of the Savior Jesus as the Christ* This church was there as the Early church as you can read of in the Book of Acts.

This is where we Get our name! All who so evers are His already.

Our Savior said, “Upon this ROCK I will build my church” (Matt. 16:18). He, Himself, the Son of -the Living God, is that Rock, the Foundation, the chief Corner Stone (Isa. 28:14-20 ff; 1 Cor. 10:4; 3:1-1; Eph. 2:20; Acts 4;11-12; 1 Pet. 2:6).

All our hopes for salvation from sins now, and salvation in the eternal realms of heaven, are centered in Him, “the Christ, the Son of the Living God. ” This truth every believer subscribes to, without reservation all his/her life, believing and confessing before baptism and forever after that “Jesus Christ is the Son of God” (Acts 8:36-38 f; Rom. 10:9-10).

The biblical name of this Old Church is the Old “Church of God. ” of the New Covenant The name Church of God is also mentioned in each of these New Testament passages: Acts 20:28; 1 Corinthians 10:32; 11:16, 22; 15:9; 2 Corinthians 1:1; Galatians 1:13; 1 Thessalonians 2:14; 2 Thessalonians 1:4; and 1 Timothy 3:5.

In Acts 7:38 Stephen spoke of the “Ekklesia”, or “Church”, “in the wilderness. ” He was referring to Israel’s pilgrimage through the wilderness, about 1490 B. C.

Surely the Israelites were God’s “called-out” people. He called them out of Egypt. He led them into Canaan. They were still the “Ekklesia” of God years after their pilgrimage was over, when they were worshipping Jehovah in the temple at Jerusalem. This leads us to ask the question; “how about the seventy souls out of the loins of Jacob more than two hundred years before the Israelites were in the wilderness? ” Were not the seventy souls of Exodus 1:5 God’s “Called-out? ”

Two hundred years before this some of God’s people were in the household of Abraham. Genesis 17:4 to 14 Today we are Just One of the churches referred to in the New Testament Scriptures, because anyone who is saved by Jesus is His church people, so there was this the “Church in the wilderness. ” under the Old Covenant as well. Jesus came for us all, Acts believers were added to the Church of God.

They were all Israelites. About eight years later the first company of Gentiles was added. Acts 11:18. If the called-out company of Acts 15:14 to 17 referred to the Jews and Greeks of I Corinthians 12:13, baptized by one Spirit into one Body, then the one Body of I Corinthians 12:13 can hardly be identical with the Body of Ephesians 3:6. Membership in the Body of Ephesians 3:6 was a mystery not made known to the prophets of Israel, whereas the saved company of Acts 15:14 to 17 was prophesied in Amos 9:11 to 15.

We still speak as the Early church did speak the word we do no as church

the church (Used 56 times in the Scriptures : Acts 11:26 the most common term used in the Bible)
the body, body of Christ, Christ's Body (Used over 50 times: Col 1:18; Rom 7:4; 1 Cor 10:16; 12:27; Eph 4:12)
church of God or assembly of God (Used 10 times: Acts 12:5; 20:28; 1 Cor 1:2; 10:32; 11:22; 15:9; 2 Co 1:1; Gal 1:13; 1 Tim 3:5; 3:15)
churches of Christ or assemblies of Christ (used once: Rom. 16:16)
the way (used 7 times exclusively by Luke in Acts: Acts 9:2; 18:25; 19:9, 23; 24:4, 14, 22)
flock (used 4 times: Acts 20:28, 29; 1 Pe 5:2, 3)
the sect, sect of the Nazarenes (Used 3 times: Acts 24:5, 14; 28:22)
general assembly (Heb 12:23)
church of the firstborn (Heb 12:23)
church of the saints (1 Cor 14:33)
house of God (I Tim 3:15)
church of the living God (I Tim 3:15)
kingdom of God (Col 4:11 and many other passages)
kingdom of his dear Son (Col 1:13)
kingdom of Christ and of God (Eph 5:5)
family of God/ household of God/ house of God (1 Tim 3:15)

B. Geographic descriptors of the church in the Bible like these were the most common:
the church that is in their house. (1 Cor 16:19)
the churches of Judea (Gal 1:22)
the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea (1 Thess 2:14)
the church which was at Jerusalem (Acts 8:1)
the church that was at Antioch (Acts 13:1)
the church which is at Cenchrea (Rom. 16:1)
the church of God which is at Corinth (1 Cor. 1:2)
the church of the Laodiceans (Col. 4:16)
the church of the Thessalonians (1 Thess. 1:1)
the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Th 1:1)
the church of Ephesus (Rev. 2:1)

. Early uninspired Christians used great variation in referring to the church in keeping with the Bible as the only understanding for mankind.

They echoed the Bible pattern! We still do today.
They did not pick a single denominational name not found in the Bible, but referred to each church most commonly by geographic location using a Bible designation. This mirrors the practice of the apostles in the Bible:
A. Clement was an elder in the church at Rome who was writing a letter to the church in Corinth because they had ousted the eldership. He wrote about 96 AD:
"The Church of God which sojourneth in Rome"
"to the Church of God which sojourneth in Corinth.. . "
B. Ignatius wrote his epistles about 250 AD to several churches and addresses them in this fashion:
"Ignatius.. . unto the church which is in Ephesus"
"Ignatius.. . I salute the church which is in Magnesia"
"Ignatius.. . to the holy church which is in Tralles"
"Ignatius.. . to the church that is beloved and enlightened"
"Ignatius.. . to the church of God the Father and of Jesus Christ, which is in Philadelphia"
"Ignatius.. . to the church of God the Father and of Jesus Christ the Beloved.. . to the church which is in Smyrna"
"Ignatius.. . to Polycarp who is bishop of the church of the Smyrneans"
C. Polycarp wrote about mid 2nd century AD
"Polycarp.. . unto the Church of God which sojourneth at Philippi"
D. A letter from the church in Smyrna about the martyrdom of Polycarp about 155 AD.
"The Church of God which sojourneth at Smyrna to the Church of God which sojourneth in Philomelium"

This is a warning to the dirt that we once were on earth, we should be always looking up.
Dirt was given a place to go after this time on Earth, no matter what we may think we will live forever in one place or the other. Heaven or Hell is the choice for each person.

Think about what God has offered to all of us, The first gift God ever gave to mankind was and is still His unconditional and everlasting Love. God cannot but love because He is Love. The key to living a life of victorious and strong Christian faith is understanding the depth of God’s love for you. Remember faith works by love. All through the Bible and from our day-to-day experience we can see the proof of God’s Love for us. Jeremiah 31:3 – The Lord has appeared old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you. ”
Our Lord Jesus Christ is heaven’s best gift to us. We did not and cannot pay for the substitutionary role He took for us. God gave Him away for us. John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Romans 5:17, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Timothy 1:6, 1 Timothy 6:17
When we confess Jesus as our Savior and Lord, we are saved—saved from eternal separation from God (Romans 10:9; John 3:16–18).
Once we genuinely accept Jesus, that bond can never be broken (2 Timothy 1:12; Romans 8:38–39). We are born again (John 1:12; 3:3; Romans 6:22), granted the Holy Spirit (Acts 19:1–6; Ephesians 1:13–14). God's promise to be with us, and to deliver us to heaven for eternity where we will be with Him forever, is the protection of our souls and our bodies will be changed into something we do not know as humans. (Philippians 4:7; Ephesians 6:10–11). We obtain that protection by putting our faith in Jesus Christ.

In the salvation from God we do become more than Dirt!
It is Jesus that makes us more than what we were, more than where we have come from, more than what we have done, more than what others have done to us. We are to always be aware of anyone who is broken because we too were that as well.

But we do not get to live free from trouble.
Christians are not promised a life here on earth free from difficulty. Jesus even told His followers, "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). The New Testament epistles describe persecution and assume it will be a reality for Christians (for example, Romans 8:18–25;
2 Corinthians 1:3–11; 11:23–28; Philippians 1:27–30; 1 Thessalonians 2:2; James 1:2–4; 1 Peter 2:20–25; 3 :13–22).

What is He Doing in You and what are we Here?

Romans 8:28 may be the most personal verse in the Bible to each one who believes :

We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Your life experience is one of the most overlooked ways that God uses to shape you for the way He wants you to serve Him and others in this world.

The Bible says that God is working in every experience we have—our stupid mistakes, our dumb decisions, our successes and failures, our education, different jobs, relationships, our unemployment or divorce or cancer or bankruptcy—you name it. God is working in everything in our life—even our SINS--to accomplish His purpose for us. This may be a strange teaching to some but it is the truth.

This is what those who have John 3:16 know!

1 Corinthians 2:12 – We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.

In this new covenant, there are far greater blessings, for Jesus the Messiah has come; he has lived, died, and risen among us, atoning once for all for our sins (Heb. 9:24–28); he has revealed God most fully to us (John 1:14; Heb. 1:1–3); he has poured out the Holy Spirit on all his people in new covenant power (Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 12:13; 2 Cor. 3:4–18); he has written his laws on our hearts (Heb. 8:10). This new covenant is the “eternal covenant” (Heb. 13:20) in Christ, through which we shall forever have fellowship with God, and he shall be our God, and we shall be his people.

“Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words,
lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. ”
(Proverbs 30:5-6)
How does God relate to man? Since the creation of the world, God’s relationship to man has been defined by specific requirements and promises.
God tells people how he wants them to act and also makes promises about how he will act toward them in various circumstances. The Bible contains several summaries of the provisions that define the different relationships between God and man that occur in Scripture, and it often calls these summaries “covenants. ” With respect to covenants between God and man in Scripture, we may give the following definition: A covenant is an unchangeable, divinely imposed legal agreement between God and man that stipulates the conditions of their relationship. Heb. 8:1-13
“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us. ” (1 John 4:10)
God wants us to know him.
The Bible says God is at work in everyone’s life already. “So that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. ” (Acts 17:27) the Lord came for us all.
So the saved people are always telling the world about what God has done and to remind them of what God has placed inside the human race about Him as said in Jer. 31:31 - Heb. 8:1-13 that all would know Him.
God has already done this in this world so anyone can run to Him.

Jesus Christ came to do what we could not do for ourselves.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in
He should not perish but have an everlasting life. ” (John 3:16)
He came into the world to bring us to his Father.
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except
through Me. ’ ” (John 14:6)
He died in our place to pay the penalty for our sin.
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God,
being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit. ” (1 Peter 3:18)
He rose from the dead to show that his claims were true.
“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according
to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the
Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five
hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. ”
(1 Corinthians 15:3-6)

To heaven is to be the top choice that we should make, it is up to us to forgive, forget, and love as He has loved us, the very will of God is that we all love and be loved, Love even that person we may not like.

He seeks to have us understand this!

1 John 4:8, 19 – He who does not love does not know God, for God is love… We love him, because he loved us first.
We must each personally trust Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
Our own efforts to earn God’s acceptance are inadequate.
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us,
through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. ” (Titus 3:5)
We must admit our need for forgiveness.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. ” (Romans 3:23)
“And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as lift his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner! ’ ” (Luke 18:13)
We must receive Christ and his offer of salvation as a gift.
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name. ” (John 1:12)
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of work, lest anyone should boast. ” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
The whole thing is a lot easier than you think. You do not have to accept anyone else's word or opinion about anything.

You have a conscience. Your conscience is the voice of God within you, and you must listen to it and obey it. It will tell you when something is right, and it lets you know with no mistakes when something is wrong.

Live in what God has already told us to do!
harmony and peace with one another, and the God of love and peace will be
with you (2 Cor. 13:11). All of you should be like-minded, sympathetic, loving
toward one another, kindly disposed, and humble (1 Pet. 3:8).
.
Jesus said to His disciples:

You shall love the Lord your God
with your whole heart,
with your whole soul,
and with your whole mind.
This is the greatest and first commandment.

The second is like it:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

On these two commandments the whole law is based, and the prophets as
well (Matt. 22:37-40). If anyone says, 'I love God, ' yet hates his brother, he is a
liar. One who has no love for his brother whom he sees cannot love God
whom he does not see.

Let me solemnly assure you: when the Son of Man comes in His glory
escorted by all the angels of heaven. He will sit upon His royal throne and all
the nations will be assembled before Him.

Then He will separate them into
two groups, as a shepherd separates sheep from goats. The sheep he will
place on His right hand and the goats on His left. Then He will say to those on
His right: "Come! You have my Father's blessing! Inherit the kingdom
prepared for you. For

I was hungry and you gave me food;
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink;
I was a stranger and you welcomed me;
I was naked and you clothed me;
I was ill and you comforted me;
I was in prison and you came to visit me. "

Then the just will ask Him, "Lord, when did we do such things to
you? " And the Son of Man will answer them: "I assure you, as often you did
any of these things for the least of my brothers, you did it for me. "

Then He will say to those on His left: "Out of my sight, you evildoers,
condemned into the everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels! "

It was with these and similar words that the Lord Jesus taught His
followers to live in the image and likeness of God, in silence, harmony, and
love. He offered them the example of His life and said to them, "Follow me.
As I have done, so you also must do. "

You know that helping people and making them feel better is right. Christ spent His time on earth preaching how we are to take care of our less fortunate brethren.

You also know instinctively that the One God is a God of love and forgiveness: hatred and holding grudges simply does not work in this world.

Christianity teaches true love of everyone and true forgiveness of everyone. It is not exclusionary or elite. It is how we experience God's infinite love for all mankind.

We do not believe in the Bible and in Christ because we found it all written in an old book. We believe it because we recognize who our Father is, as any child does. The truth of what Christ said is not just written in a book, it is written in our hearts and souls.
Anyone can do this Romans 10:17.
Then a great understanding will come into our life.

The Meaning of Life According to Christ will come into our hearts.

Whoever loves God must also love his brother
(1 John 4: 20-21). Therefore, I say to you all:

Feed the hungry.
Give drinks to the thirsty.
Clothe the naked.

Shelter the homeless.
Visit the sick.
Visit the imprisoned.
Bury the dead.

Counsel the doubtful,
Instruct the ignorant,
Admonish the sinner,
Forgive injuries,
Bear wrong patiently,
Pray for the living,
Pray for those the dead leave behind.
.
Love your enemies; pray for those who persecute you; do good to those
who hates you. If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him
something to drink. Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good
(Rom. 12:17-21). Do not return evil for evil, or insult for insult. Return a
blessing instead.

Get rid of all bitterness, all passion and anger, harsh words, slander
and malice of every kind. In place of these, be kind to one another,
compassionate, and mutually forgiving, just as God has forgiven you. Do
nothing to sadden the Holy Spirit with whom you will be sealed for your day
of redemption (Eph. 4:29-32).

Rather, encourage one another. Live in
harmony and peace with one another, and the God of love and peace will be
with you (2 Cor. 13:11). All of you should be like-minded, sympathetic, loving
toward one another, kindly disposed, and humble (1 Pet. 3:8).

40. The only way out? It is proclaimed every time the Lord's Communion is celebrated, —1 Cor. 11:26. In short the person is saying You Jesus is my savior, I have no other voice that I obey as Savior but you.
As the Old Church of God of the New Covenant has always pointed to the doctrines of truth as God’s creed for mankind such as that of this doctrine in the New Testament. Where Jesus is the Lord and that we all can have church anywhere as Matthew 18:20 tells us and that Jesus is the only savior and He is already Lord, and the He did come in a flesh and as a in the blood human body but was as John 1:1-4 says He was, in short it was God who Redeemed us from the fall of man in the garden. LOVE CAME FOR US ALL, theis Jesus is alive! The Rapture will Come because God will do as He pleases.
Beware of Men who have answers that are not what God tells us in the bible. Remember that God did tell man what He said was no, and what He called yes to, but they went to get another answer from someone we know as satan, and that was where they had the fall of mankind.
Until next time The Elder
