I am now 91 years old and reflecting on the journey. I have realized this blog never attracted much of a readership. My sons set it up for me as a Christmas present years ago. before I give up on it I decided to write one more time at least.
The pandemic has changed modern society more than anything in modern times. It has rattled churchianity foundations, causing the Western church to take stock of its unbiblical foundations that replaced the equipping of all believers to be priests with puffy inspirational expositors that left them unprepared to minister.
I have been helping a small team in Montenegro develop online groups in English and Russian. At this time the project is in development with much to be done before testing can begin. If you are interested, check cb.online. I have insisted we call the groups being formed CHRIST'S BODIES. Why? Because when they have been called Life Groups, Cell Groups, etc., they have deviated in their objectives widely.
Pastors have not wanted to use that designation because they feel it is too strong a term and will frighten people from joining the group. They do not realize their fear may reveal they have not wanted their flocks to assume their real identities. Paul said plainly. "Now you are the Body of Christ!"
Let's see if I get ay feedback from readers. If so I will begin to blog regularly.

A human does not possess agape until God indwells him, because only God is agape!
Because God is a spirit, His presence is invisible unless He reveals something about Himself that is visible.
To reveal His POWER, the Godhead spoke the universe into existence (Romans 1:19-20).
To reveal His AGAPE, he created all humans with the capacity receive His full Presence (Col. 2:9).
To reveal His PRESENCE, He formed Christ's second body:
And God put all things under Christ's feet, and He gave Him to the church as head over all things.
Now the church is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. - Eph. 1:22-23.
When that body gathers, it forms community where every person prophesies, filled with agape revelation:
But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or uninformed person enters, he will be convicted by all, he will be called to account by all. - 1 Cor. 14:24
For you can all prophesy one after another, so all can learn and be encouraged. - I Cor. 14:31
1 Cor. 11 clearly teaches that agape is the greatest activity of Christ's body. Its witness causes the unbeliever to fall on his face and say, "GOD IS AMONG YOU!" - 1 Cor. 14:25
Conclusion: the authentic body of Christ meets to manifest His supernatural invisible Presence and Power. It is done house to house, where all prophesy.
