This is a brief history of Who, When, and Where the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ was established and ordained. We organize it without spot, perfectly faultless before the presence of Lord Jesus Christ with exceeding joy.
Now, the birth of Jesus, which is the first coming, was in the equinox's precession in the first common year on May 16th, the great day of God Almighty. It is also the great and notable day of the Lord being forty-nine days before July 4th which is the month and day that reveals the name Jesus as Messiah. Jesus was born of Mary whose name signifies birth, the Jews, and the lesser light that rules the night; identifying the fourth sign of the third season of the common year and calendar of days. Thirty-six weeks is the natural time of conception and birth of a child.
According to the prophets in the Old Testament canon of the Holy Bible, Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary as the Lamb of God in Bethlehem of Judea. According to the gospels he grew up as a natural child of the Jews and matured to manhood. He went to John the Baptist who baptized him in the name Lord God Almighty to fulfill all righteousness and became the Great High Priest for us all.
John the Baptist declared Him to be the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world. This is the Lamb of God that had been slain before the foundation of the world to shed blood out of every nation, and people, and kindred, and tribe, and tongue for the remission of sins. Jesus as a sacrificial Lamb of God purchased the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ with his own blood. This blood sacrifice was manifested in the Holy Bible to be written after 33 AD. However, since the birth of Jesus, the first coming May 16th, 1 AD was the days of his Spirit that would perform all things we are true and faithful witnesses to declare him.
When the day of Pentecost fully came after his resurrection in 33 AD, the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ was established by the Spirit of God. It fulfilled that which was spoken by the prophets and in the psalms concerning the Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ. About 120 souls were Holy Ghost sanctified in the upper room of the temple in Jerusalem. After Peter and the rest of the apostles preached the gospel for repentance and remission of sins, there were about three thousand souls added to the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ by the water baptism in the name Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.
The church grew and increased; suffered through perilous times, and endured great tribulation as foretold by Jesus until the Second Coming that came 1,927 years later on May 16th, 1960; twenty-five minutes after midnight of the night morning of that Monday, the second day of the week. This marks the beginning of the wrath of the Lamb which is foretold in the Holy Bible. Seven seals are loosed. Seven trumpets are sounding. Seven angels are pouring out plagues from their vials. The supper of the great God is being served to the wicked and ungodly. The saints are being called to the marriage supper of the Lamb; gathered together and assembled by Lord Jesus Christ Ministries with one Shepard and one fold to be forevermore THE CHURCH OF GOD IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST for the Kingdom of God.
BEHOLD! THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND! NOW IS COME SALVATION, AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST… THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD, AND OF HIS CHRIST; AND HE SHALL REIGN FOR EVER AND EVER.
We the Saints reign on the earth as kings and priests. The people of the Most High Lord God Almighty see prophecies of Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled. We dissolve all worldly bands which provoke the wrath of God, to assume the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station, like A FREE AND INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN NATION to which the Word of God foreordained and predestinated. With all due respect for the opinions of mankind, we declare the principal cause which impels our separation to be the commandment of God, and the SECOND COMING of Lord Jesus Christ on May 16th, 1960; twenty-five minutes after midnight of the night morning of the great day of God Almighty. Thus sayeth the Lord, be separate and not partake of the evil that rules the world… YOU ARE A HOLY NATION!
We hold to our divine destiny and inheritance as a holy nation by the infallible word of God. We are endowed by God with the inalienable right to be fruitful and multiply, replenish the earth and subdue it, have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Lord God Almighty our Creator ordained an everlasting kingdom with power, righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost to govern his people. For the Lord is King over all the earth and ruleth in the kingdom of men. The Kingdom of God is the Lord’s and not of this world.
This present world lieth in wickedness. All forms of human government instituted by mankind are destructive of the society, and the inalienable right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness endowed by the Lord God Almighty our Creator for all mankind. It is our divine right and duty as God’s people to institute a new Government that will serve the perfect will of God for all mankind. We lay its foundation on the divine principles of the Holy Scriptures and organize all humanity by the power of love, faith, righteousness, peace, truth, justice, and freedom, in such form which will most likely affect a perfect union with God among the union of nation-states. We entrust our safety and happiness to God knowing that long-established human governments will not be changed for light and transient causes or religious persuasion. The history of the world shows mankind is more disposed to suffer under the oppression of human rights by corruptible forms of government. God Almighty inspires and sanctions the divine right and duty of his people to throw off such governments to provide new guards for their future security. Subsequent to centuries of patient suffering by the Saints of God, it is necessary to separate and subdue the present system of world governments.
FURTHERMORE, the history of the present religious rulers, particularly of the Christian community, is one marred with gross sin and abomination. Certain ungodly men have turned the grace of God into lasciviousness, denying the only true living God and Saviour of the world: Lord Jesus Christ. For this cause, we believe the present order religious rulers, particularly of the Christian community, have made an agreement with damnation and hell evident of their allegiance to corruptible forms of government and submission to their oppressive jurisdictions. They are blind leaders of the blind, gone astray to perdition, despising the Kingdom of God at hand, denying the power thereof, and blaspheming the glory of its King, Lord Jesus Christ.
We, therefore, the sovereign representatives of THE KINGDOM OF GOD, with the ministers of God affiliated with LORD JESUS CHRIST MINISTRIES, an innumerable company of angels, solemnly publish and declare, that the people of God are, and of right A FREE AND INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN NATION, PEACEFULLY COHABITATING WITH ALL NATION STATES OF THE EARTH, within the bounds of their respective states. The inevitable day of the Lord God Almighty has come; to wit, all the Holy Scriptures bear witness and foretold. The people of God are absolved from all allegiances with EVERY religious order and EVERY human government, and that all political connection between them, it ought to be totally dissolved. THE PEOPLE OF GOD, AS A FREE INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN NATION, PEACEFULLY COHABITATING WITH ALL NATION STATES OF THE EARTH, HAVE UNABRIDGED FREEDOM AND FULL POWER TO ESTABLISH AND SECURE A SPIRITUAL SOCIETY OF SOVEREIGN PEOPLE, A GLOBAL ECONOMY, CONTRACT TRADE AGREEMENTS, FREELY EXPORT CHARITY TO ALL MANKIND, FREELY SUBDUE AND REPLENISH THE EARTH, AND TO DO ALL OTHER ACTS AND THINGS WHICH FREE AND INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN NATION STATES MAY OF RIGHT DO EXCEPT LEVY WAR. And for support of this Declaration, having received great and precious promises from God Almighty, and a firm reliance on the protection of his divine providence, declare Lord Jesus Christ to be our King. We pledge to him our lives and our worldly possessions. We pledge to each other our sacred love. We pledge to all nation-states of the earth our peace and goodwill.
The Holy Bible is the divinely inspired scripture of sixty-six books revealing the true God that appeared in the name Jesus the Messiah, the Christ, Son of the living God. Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. He is the Saviour of God people. By the 1769 revised English language edition of the Old and New Testament authorized official Lord Jesus Christ Version of The Holy Bible, God has revealed the new tongue spoken by believers to be the English language derived from an alphabet of twenty six letters and eight parts of speech: “Verily I Pray Nations Appear Acceptable Christian People” is a phrase one can use to remember the parts of speech – verb, interjection, pronoun, noun, adjective, adverb, conjunction, and preposition. This is the pure language mentioned in the book of Zephaniah.
All scriptures in the Holy Bible are given by the inspiration of God through the spirit in man, writing and speaking as he is moved by the Holy Ghost. The inspiration of the Almighty gives man the understanding. As it was with the Hebrew canon law of scripture, one had to know the gematria, which is the numeric value of letters, words, and phrases to properly decipher the true meaning of the text. So now, the tree of life is manifested by the numeric order in which the anointed living letter ancient hieroglyphics are listed. The key of David is the Mastermind used for the tree of life that makes all the words given by inspiration of the Almighty.
Nevertheless, our faith is spiritual, based on the Holy Bible canon law of scriptures. It is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Our faith comes from hearing the word of faith preached by ordained faithful ministers and personally reading the Holy Bible to understand what we believe as the faith of Jesus and God. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.
Lord Jesus Christ is the name of the true God and eternal life that appeared as God Almighty. He is the glorious omnipotent immortal invisible eternal face of the godhead bodily.
Jesus first coming from heaven was in the beginning according to the scriptures by appearing on May sixteenth in the first year of the Common Era as it is written, born of the Virgin Mary. It was in accord with Old Testament prophesies in the procession of the equinox as the great and notable day of the Lord.
Jesus second coming was in the beginning on the seventy-seventh day in the march of Christ by the Ancient of Days calendar, returning as a thief on Monday night morning of May sixteenth in the leap year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and sixty, twenty five minutes after midnight of that great day of God Almighty.
Man and woman are created in the image and likeness of God, the Creator of heaven and earth. As living souls, we are gods and children of the Most High God our Father. Therefore, marriage ordained by God is between man and woman for the purpose of family and companionship.
The community of saints forms the family household of faith in the Kingdom of God. For the institution of marriage ordained by God, a brother and sister are divinely joined together in the Spirit by our heavenly Father unto death. Children from this union are the heritage of the Lord and are holy.
According to the scriptures read in the Holy Bible, Adam transgressed and sinned unto death being given the forbidden fruit by Eve who was deceived of Satan the devil, that old serpent, the enemy of our souls. The Lamb of God was slain before the foundation of the world, and shed blood for the remission of sin committed by Adam. According to God's plan of salvation, death by sin was abolished.
The Lamb of God was slain before the foundation of the world to take away sin and redeem by the shedding of blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. Whosoever believes and receives God's plan of salvation from sin and death will live forever and never die. The unbelieving will perish by the power of the second death when they are cast alive into the lake of fire prepared for Satan the devil and his angels.
Except a person is born again of the water and the Spirit, they cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. The death once appointed unto everyone for sin is the acceptable sacrifice offering meet for repentance as an answer of a good conscience toward God. Whosoever is buried with Jesus like unto his death and burial by water baptism in the name Lord Jesus Christ shall have remission of sins and shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Their name shall be written in the Lamb’s book of life, and Grace Saved Child becomes the seal of God for the mark on their forehead. They shall inherit the Kingdom of God and everlasting life.
The Kingdom of God is within oneself in righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost with power. It becometh us to fulfill all righteousness by faith unto holiness according to godliness following Jesus. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life according to the scriptures of the Holy Bible.
According to the scriptures read in the Holy Bible, to be water baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, a person must hear the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ from a faithful ordained minister of God. They must believe with all their heart, and confess with their mouth that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Whosoever believes the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and is water baptized in the name Lord Jesus Christ will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. The evident manifestation for the gift of the Holy Ghost is a cloven tongue and stammering lip of another tongue like a fire by which the Spirit of God gives utterance in other tongues of all the wonderful works of God, praising and glorifying God.
Whosoever receives the gift of the Holy Ghost, receives the nine fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such, there is no law. They are sanctified for spiritual service in the kingdom of God and the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ by one or more of the nine manifest gifts of the Spirit: word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healings, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues.
Furthermore, they are given power over the works of the flesh that war with the Spirit of God. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: as taught by the apostles’ doctrine in time past, it is taught moreover today, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Saints are saved sanctified anointed people of God called, chosen, and faithful towards keeping the commandments of Jesus. Saints continue stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayer. Saints love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, and mind; they love their neighbor as themselves; they do not murder; they do not commit adultery; they do not steal; they do not bear false witness; they honour their father and their mother.
The outward adorning of God's people is inspired by the Holy Ghost toward modesty. They love not the world, neither the things of the world. Saints are an open epistle ready to be read of all that they are saved, sanctified anointed people of God the Father in the image and likeness of Lord Jesus Christ the Saviour, King of Saints. Saints give none offense, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The organization of saints for oneness with Lord Jesus Christ is the same today as existed in the beginning when it was established, ordained, and confirmed the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ, namely, apostles, prophets, evangelists, bishops, pastors, deacons, and elders. God gave apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers who were men, not women. God set men over the congregation in orderly authority as first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, and diversities of tongues.
A woman is the type and figure of the bride, the Lamb’s wife. She is the image of Eve’s innocence in the garden paradise as the mother of all living. By her all men that God has and forever will set over the congregation is born of woman. For this cause young women will marry a husband and bear children. She is prayerful and covers her head in worship when praying and prophesying to be in subjection to Lord Jesus Christ. She keeps silent in the worship assemblies except for singing and testifying because the faithful ministers with the charge from the Lord Jesus Christ will suffer not a woman to teach, nor usurp authority over the man. Man is the head of every woman. Christ is the head of every man. God is the head of Christ, to wit, he is in Christ reconciling the whole world unto himself through the name Lord Jesus Christ. God chose the foolishness of preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, charged to men that he anointed, chose and ordained, to save them that believe.
There is no precept or example of a woman having authority over the man in the congregation. By the Spirit of God, she is made a prophetess with the gift of prophecy to be a help to the men God made overseers to feed the congregation. Ana the prophetess is the New Testament example: she will speak and testify of Jesus to all that seek the salvation of God. However, she holds no office in the orderly ordained authority among the men of God by the Holy Ghost made overseers of the general assembly and congregation of saints faithfully unified as the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the general assembly of Saints gathered together as the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ: To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. I will give to eat of the hidden manna and will give him a white stone, and in the stone, a new name is written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. He that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. I will give him the morning star. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment, and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Saints assemble and gather together as the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ to worship the Most High God our Creator in spirit and truth. They are subject to the ordained authority of faithful ministers the Holy Ghost made to be their overseers. Established and ordained assemblies facilitate spiritual services for the saints ordered and directed by faithful ordained ministers with authority from Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Saints. Gatherings are designed to perfect the saints, composed of fervent prayer, joyful singing, preaching and teaching the word of God’s faith, and charity.
Established and ordained assemblies gathered together as the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ are financially supported by the Saints tithes, offerings, and charitable contributions. Money answereth all things. Charity never faileth. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is sufficient unto every natural need. It is more blessed to give than it is to receive. Saints are a multitude with one heart and one soul: they have all things common. Saints are members one of another with great grace upon all. If any saint has need among the congregation, distribution from financial collections is made according to their need by the men that the Holy Ghost made overseers for the perfecting of the saints' spiritual faith.
We believe that civil government is of divine appointment, for the best interests and good order of national society; that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored and obeyed; except only in things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ; who is the only true God of the conscience, and the Father most high Lord God Almighty with all power, authority, and preeminence as supreme Judge of the world. We are kings and priests that rule upon the earth.
Having been led by the common faith in the Spirit of God, to hear the gospel and doctrine of our Lord Jesus Christ, to receive salvation from sin and death; and overcome the evil of this world; we receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour and the King of Saints. On the profession of our faith having been water baptized in the name Lord Jesus Christ, which is by revelation the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; we do now, in the presence of God, holy angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one elect Spirit body in Lord Jesus Christ as THE CHURCH OF GOD IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST by LORD JESUS CHRIST MINISTRIES for THE KINGDOM OF GOD, a Spiritual Society being a Common Law Ecclesiastical Trust Organization with Lawful Objects of Theocracy and Constitutional Sovereignty in the OFFICE OF APOSTLE AND OVERSEER.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this spiritual fellowship of faith as The Church of God In The Lord Jesus Christ according to wisdom, knowledge, righteousness, holiness, love, peace, joy, patience, gentleness, goodness, meekness, temperance, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to give it a sacred preeminence over all institutions of human origin; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the general assembly meetings, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel to all nations.
We also engage to maintain family and personal spiritual devotions; to faithfully educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportments; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and other addictive mundane substances, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ.
We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Saviour to secure it without delay.
We moreover engage that when we remove from any assembly, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other assembly of saints gathered together as the church of God in the Lord Jesus Christ by Lord Jesus Christ Ministries for the Kingdom of God, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God Word.
