      God IS Spirit which does not have flesh or bones.

      Jesus said that He was a man with FLESH AND BONES.

      Spirit, therefore is the opposite of Flesh.
      Spirit is never the name of a person but the Mental Disposition of that person. OF is a preposition so the Spirit OF Christ is His Mind or Mental disposition.

      God Who is Holy or WHOLLY Spirit in His nature Conceives everything that exists. Spirit is transmitted by BREATH which is not another God person required for God to create and govern.

      When SPIRIT expresses Himself as Breath it is invisible and inaudible since we are speaking figuratively so that we mortals can get a small clue.

      God's Breath or Spirit came to Jesus without measure or meter: that is why Jesus never sings tunefully but SPEAKS God as Word in a visible-audible sense.

      No one knows the Father but the Son and those to whom He reveals Himself. Jesus said My WORDS are SPIRIT and LIFE. Therefore, God who IS Spirit without flesh and bones communicates to His creatures in the WRITTEN WORD. Peter said that He was leaving his "part" for our memory because he was eye-and ear-witness of God's Spirit validating or making the Prophecies about Him which are Holy Scriptures. Peter said that this prophecy about Messiah, the prophecies made more certain or fulfilled by Jesus and confirmed by Signs and Wonders is NOT subject to our private interpretation or Further expounding.

      God IS Spirit and not flesh and bones. The only possible "worship" is IN THE SPIRIT and not IN THE FLESH. Worship is IN TRUTH and Paul defined spiritual or RATIONAL worship as including ONLY the Word, Logos or Regulative principle.

      Groups assemble for other purposes but the kingdom DOES NOT COME with observation meaning religious observations or operations. Paul spoke of LYING WONDERS as God's Abandonment to those whom God has STRONGLY DELUDED so that they tongue is not longer under their control. Lying Wonders are widely defined among the Greeks as any of what Jesus called the HYPOCRITE performances: performance preaching for sale, singing or playing instruments Ezek 33.

      I certainly hope the "trumpet" is not blown in your hearing in the morning. That is excluded for the Church in the wilderness as elevated speech beyond the direct command to PREACH the Word by READING the Word in the once-each week period of REST God gave to HIS children. Sorry about yours.

    ...........................THE BOOK

    What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?


    There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

    This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

    Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
    Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

    Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

    It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

    At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

    They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

    The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

    At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

    Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

    The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

    The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

    This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

    To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

    This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site; http://www.concernedmembers.com/madison

    Here is the list of players;

    5 Godly Elders
    10 Not so Godly Elders
    120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
    2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
    2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
    Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
    Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
