Title: The New Testament Church


1
The New Testament Church
  • The Origin of the Church

2
Importance of When the Church Began
  • Matter of identityto distinguish it from the Old
    Testament agencies and also from religious
    institutions of modern human origin.
  • To identify its lawsand to see when the law
    governing the Church of God went into effect.

3
Church Foreshadowed in the Old Testament
  • The church was NOT in existence in the Old
    Testament days.
  • Old Testament worthies desired to see its era.
  • Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and
    searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace
    that would come to you, searching what, or what
    manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in
    them was indicating when He testified beforehand
    the sufferings of Christ and the glories that
    would follow. To them it was revealed that, not
    to themselves, but to us they were ministering
    the things which now have been reported to you
    through those who have preached the gospel to you
    by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven--things which
    angels desire to look into. 1 Peter
    110-12

Foreshadowed in Old Testament
  • But Christ came as High Priest of the good
    things to come, with the greater and more perfect
    tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of
    this creation. Hebrews 911
  • Therefore it was necessary that the copies of
    the things in the heavens should be purified with
    these, but the heavenly things themselves with
    better sacrifices than these. Hebrews 923

Beginning of the Church, Kingdom, Subject of
Prophecy
  • Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
    That the mountain of the LORD'S house Shall be
    established on the top of the mountains, And
    shall be exalted above the hills And all nations
    shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say,
    "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the
    LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob He will
    teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His
    paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
    And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. Isaiah
    22,3

  • Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
    That the mountain of the LORD'S house Shall be
    established on the top of the mountains, And
    shall be exalted above the hills And peoples
    shall flow to it. Many nations shall come and
    say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of
    the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob He
    will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His
    paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth,
    And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. Micah
    41,2

Beginning of the Church, Kingdom, Subject of
Prophecy
  • New Testament age is last days.
  • Has in these last days spoken to us by His Son,
    whom He has appointed heir of all things, through
    whom also He made the worlds. Hebrews 12
  • But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel
    And it shall come to pass in the last days, says
    GodActs 216,17

Daniel Gives Gods Interpretation
  • Four world kingdoms
  • Babylonhead of Gold
  • Medes/Persiansbreast and arms of silver
  • Greecebelly and thighs of bronze
  • Romanlegs of iron and partly of clay

9
Daniel Gives Gods Interpretation
  • A stone cut, without hands, would crush all other
    kingdoms
  • Stone grew into a large mountain
  • This kingdom would come in the days of Romans
    kings (4th empire) and NEVER be destroyed!

10
Key Passage
  • And in the days of these kings the God of heaven
    will set up a kingdom which shall never be
    destroyed and the kingdom shall not be left to
    other people it shall break in pieces and
    consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand
    forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was
    cut out of the mountain without hands, and that
    it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the
    clay, the silver, and the gold-the great God has
    made known to the king what will come to pass
    after this. The dream is certain, and its
    interpretation is sure. (Dan.244,45)
