The Church in disorder.

Posted by appolus on March 2, 2015

1Co 14:24-25 But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. (25) And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.

When was the last time you saw someone fall down on their face because they were convicted by the presence of God? Notice that the Scripture here does not just speak of the unbeliever but also the uninformed. This particular chapter of Corinthians and really the whole book is speaking to disorder in the Church. It is said that when they came together they all had a teaching, they all had a tongue, they all had a revelation, they all had a psalm, they all had an interpretation.

Now, in our day what a marvelous problem it would be if we had the problems of the Corinthians, now, by design, we have the exact opposite problem. One man speaks. No one has a tongue, no one has a message, no one has a psalm, no one has a word of knowledge, no one has a prophecy. What would Paul write to the average church today? Are we not still in disorder? Is the Body not deathly sick because of a lack of edification as defined by the Word? We have went from the ridiculous to the sublime. If men came into your gathering, would they see a church that was in order as prescribed by Paul? 1Co 14:27-29 “If anyone speaks in a tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret. (28) But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God. (29) Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge.” If the Body was operating as it should then men would “report that God is truly among you.” In all things we are called to follow the wisdom and the direction of God and not to deviate from it. What disaster has befallen us because men have decided that they know better.
