THE PRICE HE PAID TO PURCHASE THE CHURCH
1Who has believed our message?
To whom has the lord revealed his powerful arm?
2My servant grew up in the lord’s presence like a tender green shoot,
like a root in dry ground.
There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance,
nothing to attract us to him.
3He was despised and rejected--
a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.
We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.
He was despised, and we did not care.
4Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;
it was our sorrows that weighed him down.
And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,
a punishment for his own sins!
5But he was pierced for our rebellion,
crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed.
6All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.
We have left God’s paths to follow our own.
Yet the lord laid on him
the sins of us all.
7He was oppressed and treated harshly,
yet he never said a word.
He was led like a lamb to the slaughter.
And as a sheep is silent before the shearers,
he did not open his mouth.
he was led away.
No one cared that he died without descendants,
that his life was cut short in midstream.
But he was struck down
for the rebellion of my people.
9He had done no wrong
and had never deceived anyone.
But he was buried like a criminal;
he was put in a rich man’s grave.
10But it was the lord’s good plan to crush him
and cause him grief.
Yet when his life is made an offering for sin,
he will have many descendants.
He will enjoy a long life,
and the lord’s good plan will prosper in his hands.
11When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish,
he will be satisfied.
And because of his experience,
my righteous servant will make it possible
for many to be counted righteous,
for he will bear all their sins.
12I will give him the honors of a victorious soldier,
because he exposed himself to death.
He was counted among the rebels.
He bore the sins of many and interceded for rebels.
" to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood." Acts 20:28c
Welcome to the Internet church of Christ website. Daniel Parker, has established this site in order to share the truth of Christ's "called out body of people" in which Christ purchase it(the church) with the brutal crucifixion he suffered and his death.But there was a bodily resurrection which allow him to build his church on the Day of Pentecost. The church of Christ are members of The New Testament body(church)of believers who have been added to the body after being baptized (Acts 2:41,47) (1 Cor. 12:13) as instructed by our Lord through the preaching of the gospel ( Mk. 16:15-16)and compliance courses of the apostle doctrines found between Acts 2 - Rev. 22 (Acts 2:38-39,42). Also, to bring both believers and non-believers together to study God's Word in an interactive way, by viewing videos, listening to spiritual song, sermons, scriptures readings, links with articles in other various websites, lessons taught and online bible correspondence courses concerning what is written in God's word, how to rightly divide and get the correct understanding of it. (2 Tim. 2:15-16). We can become approved of by God through living our lives accordingly, by continuing in the apostles' doctrine (Acts 2:42), revealed to them by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians. 3:5) which was prophesied by Christ (John 15:26 ,John 16:13). Everything about it is very simple (Romans. 16:19). It exists as a simple, New Testament body(Romans. 12:4-5), pointing those who are able to believe and obey (Mk. 16:15-16 ; Hebrews. 5:9) the Christ who is and will be the author of man's salvation. You will notice that there is no man made doctrines taught, nor traditions practice in Christ's church that he didn't authorized ( Col. 3:17 ; Ps.127:1 ; Matt 16:18 ; Acts 2:47). For example, there is no man made creed(1 Tim. 4:16 ; 1 Pet 4:11) you simply take the word of God. There are no ready-man made prayers (Phil. 4:6)
The church of Christ represents no denomination(1 Cor. 1:10,13); it is simply the(body) church of Christ(1 Cor. 12:27). Our focus is to proclaim the simple message(gospel) that insures entry into the church of the first century; to worship God in the simple, sincere way in which that church worshiped; to adopt the organization by which it functioned; and to serve with the humble, holy consecration that characterized its faithful members. If you want to worship God "in spirit and in truth", a spiritual lifestyle( Jn. 4:24) if you enjoy thinking and meditating on Gods word and listening to good sound preaching and teaching;( 2 Tim. 4:2-3) if you appreciate warm, intimate, genuine brotherly LOVE (Hebs. 13:1 ; 1 Jn. 4:21)Let brotherly love continue; you will enjoy attending the congregational assembling of the churches of Christ(Romans. 16:16). Our invitation is genuine and sincere. We are By no means connected with Alexander Campbell and the so called Restoration Movement, which spoke some truths but where false teachers( Acts 18:24-26 Apollos did not teach total accurate doctrine),that have tainted the name "church of Christ." The church was never abolished,therefore there wasn't a need for restoration.(Dan.2:44 Dan. 7:18, Matt. 16:16-19, Mk 9:1, Col. 1:13, Hebs. 12:28) We abide in the teachings of the Apostles (Acts 2:42) and not of men (1 Cor. 4:6) (Acts 5:29).
