Who Are We and What Do We Do?
The Kingdom-Keys speak of spiritual authority delegated to the Church by its Head. This means the authority to bind and loose, to prohibit and permit, the rendering of righteous judgments --- "this is allowed and this is not allowed in the earth." The Ecclesia houses the government of the Kingdom of God. Therefore, we can say that the Ecclesia is the "called out" people of God who are called to govern on behalf of our exalted King.
The Church is more than a congregation; the Church is a congress charged to legislate and adjudicate the will of God on the earth. Here is what is amazing: God in heaven has arranged to partner with His representatives on the earth so that He will release in heaven what His Church releases on the earth!
"Whatever you bind or loose on the earth shall be bound or loosed in heaven" is how the text instructs. This is how the Lord aligns the earth with heaven. Heaven's authority is not usurped by the Church's authority; rather Heaven's authority backs up the Ecclesia's authority!
Rediscovering the Action in the Book of Acts
Mission, Movement, Momentum, Mastery
MISSION: Mission is not so much what the Church does; mission is what the Church is! The Church in today's western world needs "missionizing!"
MOVEMENT: The Church in the book of Acts was primarily a people movement, not a movement of religious super stars.
MOMENTUM: While the Church grows exponentially around the globe, the Church in the West is in serious decline. This is so even though we have numbers of mega churches in the USA.
MASTERY: The goal of our mission is the mastery of the Gospel of the Kingdom over every anti-God and anti-Christ entity and agenda in the earth. (We will see how the Church in Acts gained this mastery).
