Description:

Every good builder knows that in order to build a structure of any size, they need a blueprint, a set of plans to detail how construction should be accomplished. Christ, as the Master Builder of His church of "living stones" also realized that the continued revelation of God's Word after He left to return to His Father must be done according to a Divine Methodology. By sending the Paraclete to be the Teacher and Illuminator of the Word of God, Jesus insured the moral and doctrinal integrity of His church. In this message we will first establish what that methodology is and then discuss how devastating it is to the church when it is altered or ignored. If we as a church intend to help build the Kingdom the way Jesus intended it, to reflect His world instead of ours-- we must be ever-conscious to zealously stick to His Blueprint of Divine Revelation.
