 What Is The Progression From Revelation To Denomination?

The Progression from Revelation to Denomination  


A person or persons come to a close relationship with God.  

God gives a revelation.   What actually happens is that God pulls back the veil of the flesh enough that the individual can see into spiritual things.   A good example is the revelation that was given to Martin Luther.   "The just shall live by faith."   A true revelation is always confirmed by Scripture and never conflicts with any part of Scripture.  

Many are able to receive the revelation and many are not.   Some respond with persecution.   Some respond with joy, actually sharing in the original revelation and relationship with God.   Some receive the dead letter of the revelation as a sort of mental exercise.  "The letter killeth"  2 Corinthians 3:6   

An organization begins to form to protect the revelation.   Rather than moving on to higher heights and deeper depths in God, a conservation effort disallows any further revelation.   Because the living and moving flow of God's Spirit has been cut off, the only thing that is left is the dead letter of the revelation.  

Eventually, the organization takes on a life of its own with a power structure, a political structure, and money is being made.   At this point, money, power, and prestige become most important.   People are making their living here.   Members are members because being a member shows them that they are better than non-members.   They belong to the denomination that has it right.   The organization exists for the benefits of the organization and the dead letter of the revelation becomes a selling point to help to propagate the organization. Even the dead letter is usually polluted by this point with many rationalized speculations to fill in the gaps that were not yet revealed.  

The reality is that many of the non-denominational organizations are actually very small denominations.   One of the goals of the Church is unity, but unity will only be achieved by a living relationship with the living Christ that causes Christians to hold their denominational ties very loosely and their speculative doctrines very loosely.   It's very difficult for a person who knows it all to receive any revelation or understanding from the Lord.

There is so much more for you. This is what you have been missing. Don't let anyone deceptively keep you from fulfilling your destiny and God's purpose for your life.

God has established the pattern of Scripture, for life and for the Church.

You can feel free to use the Contact Form further down on this page to ask any question regarding this pattern of Scripture. The Church, the Body of Christ, and discernment of this Body, is the method that God is using to finish the work in His Body. The Body of Christ, God's Temple, is built up by that which every joint supplies, building each other up in love, and the Temple must be built according to the pattern of Scripture.

We believe the Holy Scriptures teach:
  • The 5 apostolic ministries (Ephesians 4:11)
  • The nine gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
  • Local congregations overseen by elders and deacons (Titus 1:5)
  • Every member having and being a ministry in the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:11)
  • Being led by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14)
  • The gathering together of the Body of Christ (Genesis 49:10, John 17:21)

If you seek God, you will find Him through His Son, Jesus.

Revelation 22:19 And if anyone takes away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which have been written in this Book.

John 10:35b the Scripture cannot be broken,

Human theology and reasoning is not necessarily correct, but the Bible is without error. The Bible can only be understood by revelation, and revelation is given by the Spirit of God. God does reveal in His own way. But we only know in part. If we think we know any thing, we do not know it as we ought. We are instructed, by God, to keep seeking Him. The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. The truth sets us free. Lies bind us. Whoever seeks Jesus does find Him. Jesus is the truth.
