“He says to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God,” (Matt. 15:16).
THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH Before these words were addressed to the church, they were addressed to Israel. And the church, like Israel, has been chosen of God to be a light of salvation to the unsaved. “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: 10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation,” (1 Pet. 2:9-12). As the people of God, the mission of the church is to proclaim or announce to the world the Messiah, the Son of the living God. The church must show forth the praises of Jesus Christ who has called believers out of the dankness of sin into light of His love and life. This is the good news the unsaved needs to know. Demons swarm into a body when it is immoral. They come in from the persons committing the immoral act, but they will receive spirits from both generational lines of the partner! Then, they will receive demons that have entered in from every person that each partner has engaged in illegal sex! This is a problem for our young people as well as many people in church. Many people no longer guard their spirits and minds to insure spiritual purity and freedom. Once demons are invited in, they must be kicked out! Deliverance is so needed in most of our churches.
