THE OPEN DOOR

 

Behold, I have set before thee an open door and no man can shut it. Re[velation] 8:8. The church of the open door is that of Philadelphia, which is the church are brotherly love.

 

The door is open so wide that all races, creeds and colors, find a hearty welcome to come in relax, meditate and worship God.

 

The same Pharisee spirit that was so prevalent in the days of Christ is still a-bounding today and would seek to close the Open Door but thank God, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth and no man shutteth, is still on the throne.

 

In Jn. [John] 17 Our Lord in his highpriestly prayer, prayed for his people to be ONE; not a multitude of denominations and organizations, each one claiming to be The Body and at the same time manifesting that Pharisee spirit of competition, strife, envy, and carnality.

 

“Christ is not divided.”

 

Paul in his letter to the Corinthian Church admonished them to abolish division, saying, “If one say I am of Paul, and another, I am of Appolos, are yet not carnal and walk as men?”

 

If the great Apostle Paul could take a walk thru [through] organized religion of today with its many divisions of Methodist, Baptist, Penticost [Pentecost], Trinity and Oneness, with their high sectarian walls he would surely say, Ye are Carnal.

 

The whole cause of all the distress that is in the world is all because of the condition existing in the church.

 

The Lord speaking through Isaiah says “For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance and the year of recompence [recompense] for the controversy of Zion (the church)”. Is. 34:8.

 

He also says, he will bring against thee a nation from afar and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates until thy High Fenced Walls (organizations) come down where in thou trusted. De. 28:52.

 

If man could only see the folly of their sectarian walls they would gladly bring them down so that the Lord would not have to bring that heathen nation (communism) to perform his will.

 

He says the Assyrian is the rod of his indignation. Is. 10:5. If that be true so is communism his rod of correction which he will bring against the church in order to tear down man’s carnal sectarian systems which divide the body of Christ.

 

The church with the Open Door urges you to lay aside all malice all strife and division and come let us worship together for united we stand, devided [divided] we fall. We have one common enemy and instead of fighting each other let us join our forces against the enemy.

 

The spirit of anti-Christ (communism) is sweeping the world, bringing the body of anti-Christ, (the communist party) together, just as the spirit of Christ is bringing the Body of Christ, together.

 

Soon the entire world will once again be faced with a tremendous issue; which will it be Christ or Barabus [Barrabas], (christianity or communism).

 

Christ in you is your only hope.

 

Jesus said, I am the Door; by me if any man enter in he shall be saved. Jn. 10:9.

 

People’s Temple is endeavoring to keep the door open to all mankind by presenting to them the Lord Jesus Christ, for He is – The Open Door.
