The Ark And The New Testament Church
By B. E. Echols
A blueprint is an outline or description explaining exactly how to build something. The dictionary informs us that a blueprint is a detailed plan or outline of a project Then, if the contractor will build exactly according to the plan delivered to him, he can rest assured it will be just what the builder wanted. This same rule applies to Gods New Testament Church today, the ONLY Ark of Safety or Salvation for this day in which we live. See John 10:1 & Acts 4:10-12 with 2:37-40
In the second or third century some preachers and church-folk began to vary away from the doctrines or teachings of Christ and the apostles who were the BIBLICAL FOUNDATION of the Original Church (Eph. 2:19-22 with I Cor. 12:27,28). Just a short while after the flood, men were trying to build a tower, later called Babel, that would reach up to high heaven. To them it was like it is with people today, just any way to get there besides Gods way. But keep in mind, there was only ONE WAY of escape from the flood. Any person or group of church-folk that have come up with another plan of salvation since A.D. 33 or The Day of Pentecost, CANNOT be any part of the New Testament Church. See Gall 1:6-12& 2 Thes 1:7-9 with Acts 19:17.
The gospel of Jesus Christ has never changed and never will. It is the Everlasting Gospel referred to in Rev. 14:6. Things are soon to take place that are going to let people see if they are really founded upon The Rock, Christ Jesus and are in His Church. See Rev. 6:12-17; 9:1-6.
I now appeal to the unsaved, and to those of every religious belief existing today, to check the teachings or doctrines of your church-group and see if it completely corresponds to the BLUEPRINT of the New Testament Church and the teachings of the (Eph. 2:19-22). The gospel preached to John the Baptists converts at Ephesus (Acts 19:1-7) was the gospel of THEIR SALVATION. See Eph. 1:1,13 & 4:30.
Please do not be fooled and deceived by any person or preacher, or even yourself. It is going to take more than a handshake with some preacher; yea more than just repeating the sinners prayer after someone or just having a mere religious profession of some kind to save you and make the Rapture of the Church… the only hope of escaping THE JUDGMENTS OF GOD during the GREAT TRIBULATION (St. Luke 21:34-36). See also Eph. 5:25-27; 1 Peter 4:17,18 & 2 Peter 3:9-14.
