A spiritual watering hole is a place where you can come to drink in of God’s Spirit and Truth.
Many of our people have been separated for so long now by the dictates of ministers who fail to see that all who share the Spirit of God are connected as part of a larger family.
Joh_13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye have love one to another.
This Church of God Community Web website has been set up as a kind of a Spiritual Watering Hole where you can indeed drink deeply of the Holy Spirit and refresh yourself with God’s truth. Here you can discuss and ask questions freely about your concerns and worries and receive sound advice from members who have indeed had their senses exercised to discern good and evil.
Heb_5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
We are here to provide you with Fellowship through our Online Live Events Zoom Room. This gives you the opportunity to meet and fellowship with other members of the Body of Christ no matter where you are located. It is always best for you to find a physical fellowship in your local area to attend. We are here to give you that fellowship and study opportunities until you can find that ideal and/or as an additional place to fellowship and worship God.
And while you are here we want to share with you what Christ is actually doing now. And how you can help by spreading the word to others about this site and what you have learned. By that, I mean that just like Christ was doing a specific work during the Philadelphian phase of His Church, He is doing a different work in this Laodicean time phase of the church.
Jesus tells us that many in this time period are suffering from a lukewarm attitude. And that because of that attitude He is going to spew them out of His mouth. It is our belief that He means to allow those with that mindset to go into the Great Tribulation. He goes on to tell us that the reason for this lukewarm attitude is because they do not think that they need anything beyond what they have achieved. He calls it being “rich and increased with goods”. He says that because of that attitude of being self-sufficient they have become, “wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked Rev.3:14- 20“. That is a pretty bad situation to be in brethren and the worse part is that they are blinded to their condition. They can’t see the condition that they are in. They are blind to it. But God does offer a solution. He says to go a buy eye salve so that they can see again.
It has become the mission of this website to provide whatever eyesalve that we can find to help our brethren begin to see themselves the way Christ sees them.
To that end, we invite you to our Online Events: Bible Studies – Sabbath Services – Fellowship get-togethers, as well as other sessions we provide from time to time for special learning/training purposes. Joining our Mail List will provide you with links and invites to these Online Sessions. Our blog posts, which we call the “Watering Hole”, is one way that we provide some of that “Eye-Salve” that Jesus said we need.
We want to provide you with this material so that you can share it with others of the Body of Christ that you know. We want you to share this information with all who have a need or who might know others with a need. We refer to what we are doing as a grassroots movement within the body of Christ. Regardless of your affiliation all of us can benefit from what is provided here.
We are lay members like yourselves, we are not asking for tithes or building a church group in that sense. This is simply a way station along your spiritual journey where you might be refreshed and renewed in your mind.
2Co_4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perishes, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
A place where you can refresh yourself spiritually and go forward with renewed vigor or ZEAL if you will. That is after all, what Christ said the answer is. Repent of your true condition and get back the Zeal we once had for God and Christ and the work that Jesus was doing in the world now.
Remember how excited you were to support the work Christ was doing in Philadelphia, the purpose you felt to be involved in that work of going through the doors that Christ was opening to preach the true Gospel to the world in power.
Well, now Christ is doing another work. Only He is not working with any particular church group but rather He is working with each of us to get our attention. I mean isn’t that what someone does when they knock on your door? Christ is trying to get our attention. And brethren it is not easy.
How many do you know including your self, that if asked could admit that they had a Laodicean mindset? That they were in fact lukewarm. And yet that is how Christ apparently views us at this time.
Do you know what fruits you are supposed to be showing in your life? Are you aware of the difference between whom God sees as a profitable servant and an unprofitable one? Can you say that you do not have any sin in your life? John says that we had better not say that but can you identify that sin and tell what you are doing to correct it? I could go on for quite a while but I think you get the point.
God shows us in Malachi 3:16-18 how much he likes the fact that those of us who fear God and talk among each other often. He even writes a book of remembrance with their names in it. There is a blessing attached here.
So come on in and welcome your brothers and sisters in Christ. Let’s work together to help Christ wake up His people while there is still time. We are not asking you to join yet another group just learn and share with others what you find here so more and more people can get awake enough to open the door to Christ while there is time.
