The Righteous demands a Plan..... In the minds of conceited men, God has been often been thought and spoken of as a figment of man's imagination. Every Muslim considers the reading of the Koran a pious duty; a good Muslim declares this reading to be the Message of God. The Koran teaches that God's purpose is eternal, and His plans perfect, "but man's intelligence is limited at its very best" (page 11 commentaries on the Koran, Holy Qur-an by Abdullan Yussuf Ali). It is a blessed thing to realize that when we fear the Lord (Psalms 25:1, 4) and keep a proper attitude of humility (Luke 10:21), We can expect God to come to us as a revealer of secrets.even when it comes to some weightier matters. It is God's desire to "tip us off," so to speak, in regard to His plans and purposes (page 2 "Leadership, God's Plan" by Bishop J. L. Payne). God is the source of all knowledge and He has a full and perfect understanding of everything (Colossians 2:3). Not only has God known all of His works from the beginning (Acts 15:18), but He is also the one and only one who is able to declare the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:9-10). In the diversity of a modern minister's life in a modern church (the truth is that the church is an old institution and its' roots are in the first century believers), there is a constant need to understand the God who is not limited to man's limitations, neither his thinking. We stand at the threshold of a new era that has demanded an academic spiritual mind and activating spirituality must be a daily experience in the life of every true man of God. The righteous demands a plan and order for existence. We are believers in our Lord's purpose, plan, and order for man. The Bible is our guide and map to God's foundation of ministry. The scriptures attest this in its entirely. We in the church sustain these facts by practicing its precepts, instructions, and rules based on the apostolic order and practice. We subscribe to the New Testament's church principles. Secondly, this writing is an ongoing text of the doctrines of the great fellowship of the church. It will provide for you an outline to follow perhaps for your directions in church's structure.
