Eliezer Call Ministries
The purpose of this ministry
Imagine a community where love is normal--where hate, greed, selfishness, and divisiveness are rare and when such things show their face repentance is quick and forgiveness is full.
Imagine people living together in peace and harmony--living for one another instead of for selfish desires. A community where hearts are healed and people rise above the world's pain and suffering. Imagine all of this not in some make believe kingdom in a fairy tale world but working in real lives today in the 21st century in the communities of our country.
Imagine a coming together of people of every race, gender, culture and age in the unity, love and power that only God can provide where fleshly differences fade away in the glory of Christ. Imagine a community of Christ followers where legal judgment, and religiosity are pushed aside by the loving, forgiving grace of God. Imagine, instead of going to church, these forgiven people learn to be the church in the way they treat others and perceive themselves in every day life.
Imagine a church built on Christ rather then on human cleverness and extravagant programs. This is God's eternal purpose--a Bride for His Son--a powerful spiritual army--a loving, unified family with God as the Father and King.
This is what this website is about--planting the seeds of restoration to the church of Jesus Christ. It is the vision of God's word for the community of the forgiven, the church. We are stirring up the spiritual hunger of people who know that God's word speaks of a victorious church without spot or wrinkle or any such thing-- an impossible dream fulfilled in the possibility of the Almighty God.
Jesus prayed for His church: "...that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me" (John 17:21).
The church is to exhibit such love, unity and power that the world will look on and know that the Father sent the Son. Jesus prayed this for the church of His day and throughout the church age (John 17:20). Jesus has commissioned us and many others in this generation to call the church to return to it's Lord and Master and be part of what He is doing.
Many teachers today are saying that the church will be a non-factor in the last days--that we will simply degrade into a defeated mess until Christ comes at the rapture to rescue us. This kind of talk is heresy in that it departs from the clear teaching of scripture and rejects the eternal purpose of God.
God's Eternal Purpose
The first chapter of Ephesians clearly reveals God's eternal purpose. In verses 9 and 10 Paul says, "...making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth."
Clearly, God's plan is "to unite all things in him." He is doing that through His church, which Paul describes as "his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all" (v. 23). We are not saying that we are to use political action and human methods to usher in the kingdom, but we are saying that He will use a remnant of faithful followers to stand as the unmistakable evidence of His existence and the saving ministry of Jesus.
In chapter four of Ephesians Paul speaks of the ministry of the saints for the building up of His church. And then Paul uses the word "until". This word "until" indicates the length of the time period of this building up of the church. That time period is finalized in the words that follow: "until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (4:13).
This verse settles the issue of whether or not the church will be victorious in the church age. It says that the building ministry of the saints continues until the church reaches a state of unity and full knowledge of Christ--a place of corporate maturity measured by the stature of the fullness of Christ. In other words, when the church is truly expressing the fullness of Christ, its purpose on earth will be complete and Christ will return in triumph for His completed church, His prepared bride.
At that time the word says that the Father will "...present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish" (Eph. 5:27).
That is the purpose of this ministry. That is why we are here--to bear witness to this purpose of God and join many in calling the church to a place of repentance and transformation. We wish to encourage Christians to set aside religious tradition and worldly pursuits and seek the will of the Father. May He be glorified by all we do and say.
