MARKS OF A GOOD CHURCH (PART 3)

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching
(Heb 10:25).
Some people think that they should choose a church based on their countenance. After all, if you’re such a quiet person, shouldn’t you just attend a quiet church where there isn’t much ‘Holy Ghost noise?’ No you shouldn’t. You should attend church based on the criteria given by the word of God.
One criterion of a New Testament church is Charisma. The New Testament Church lives in the fulfillment of the prophecy of Joel. Peter quoted it thus: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon ALL FLESH: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” (Acts 2:17).
Gone are the days when only Kings, Priests, prophets and judges were filled with the Spirit. Gone is the day that young man ran to report to Moses about Eldad and Medad prophesying, to which he responded: “…would God that all the LORD’S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!” (Numbers 11:27-29). Moses’ prayer is answered in Christ. We no longer go to church to be spectators but to participate. Paul says: “How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, EVERY ONE OF YOU hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying” (1 Cor 14:26).
DO THIS: Attend a Church that fans the flame of your charismatic ministry.
