"My concept of home church before was to take this very big church and divide it into smaller parts. But now I can see it's different. It's bringing the home into the church. Bringing what we do in our own homes--our relationships with our families, with our sons, daughters, with our wives--we should bring that into the church, and begin functioning with each other as brothers and sisters and mothers and fathers, as Jesus said we are..."

This site is about Lampstand Life in the Son of God. Life awakened by, empowered by, and encompassed by "the power that rose Jesus Christ from the dead" and set Him to Reign amongst and within His disciples, His Body... forever more. Whatever you want to call it: Lampstand Life, Together Life, Home Church, House Church, Home Church Movement, House Church Movement, Body Life, Jesus Life, Apostolic Life, Church Life, Early Church Life, "Community" (or "discipling group," "bible study group," "accountability group," denomination, nondenomination, small group, cell group, open church, organic church, kinship groups, ad infinitum)—if it's not all about JESUS, rather than lifestyle, then we are missing all that matters.
Journey with us in these discussions on three Continents, with church leaders, seminary professors, pastors, missionaries, teachers, homemakers, mothers, tradesmen, professionals, the very old and the very young. Here, Together, we'll see JESUS ALONE High and Lifted up.
Family, we greet you in the Name above every name, in Heaven or on Earth—Y'shua, Jesus, the Christ of God, Messiah, King, and friend of those who humble themselves and fall before Him. He extends His hand and friendship to all who bow.
Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden Lampstands, and in the midst of the seven Lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, "Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this. The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden Lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven Lampstands which you saw are the seven churches."
IN Y'SHUA, we will be able to "participate in the Divine Nature" with intertwined daily lives with Him and those who are Indwelt by Him as truly Saved. HE will lead us into a Life with HIM, and that resulting LIFE TOGETHER will transform all of us "average" people into His Image, day by day. This is the "Body Life" "Together Life" Christianity of the Bible—the Miracle of walking out the CROSS for Him and one another in the daily details of our lives. JESUS never taught or walked anything like "attendance-based religion." Not then, not now. He lives with and in us, "as we rise up, as we sit down, as we walk along the way" as "a HUNDRED MOTHERS, BROTHERS, and SISTERS" all living in Him and "one another" in their days and evenings and weekends, hearts, loyalties, routines, and in holiness. That is the "Christ-ianity" Jesus brought to this planet Earth, demonstrating it with the Twelve and the "three thousand in a single day," teaching it, and empowering it by HIS Spirit. Christianity—the CHURCH!
Those who "would not have made it" half of the time in "attendance-based religion" can GROW in the Lamb of God to become a kingdom of priests, useful and wise, in Christ's character and patience and holiness. Whatever we WOULD have been is multiplied, marriages saved, children presented WHOLE before the Throne of God in their daily lives, rather than the "75%" in religion who bow before satan's throne instead, even though "religious" in a so-called House Church or Youth Group.
Let us TOGETHER consider, as King Josiah did, what has ALWAYS been in the Scriptures. Many thousands of Followers of the Lamb of God from 150 countries have written with comments like "I have KNOWN these things to be True and Scriptural for DECADES—and was always told I was crazy. But I KNEW the Scriptures and the Life of Jesus were not what I have been seeing and blackmailed into cowering under in modern religion."
But you WILL be opposed and name-called, if you will not play the game of mere attendance, cliche, entertainment music, sermon, bible study, program, and hierarchy. While JESUS represented and did NONE of these things when HE was here, the greed and pride of men will INSIST that you settle for this placebo of Christ-ianity. Consider these truths contained in these pages, and you will never look back, and you will know how to build in the lives around you. But, you won't do it without the opposition of satan, and his religious men, and the fear they will try to instill in you in order to steal your Dream.
As Barack Obama has said recently, about the critics, hate-mongers, and religious terrorists in today's world: "They must know that their people will judge them on what they can build, not what they destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist."
This most assuredly applies to the power-monster, ritual, form, and greed of much of modern day religion that will passionately and shamelessly try to silence you, if they can. They want to critique and judge, belittle, name-call, create fear, and destroy. But, as Barack Obama said, they will be judged by what they can build, not what they attempt to destroy. And their track record is very poor, with 50% of the marriages in shambles, 75% of their teens admittedly drunk on the world, families and morality in shambles with internet darkness in 50% of their members (according to their own surveys), while many of their leaders have millions of dollars in book sales in their bank accounts. What have the accusers and hate-crimers "built"? They desire to steal from you your INHERITANCE IN JESUS, and HIS INHERITANCE IN YOU, HIS BODY, THE CHURCH, PRESENTED TO HIM IN HOLINESS AND DAILY LIFE AND LOVE.
Proceed. The choice is yours, as it always will be.
Love and Hope and Courage, with Wisdom and Patience, be to you in the Warrior-Lamb of God, Y'shua, Jesus, King of Glory!
