Introduction to Four Orders:

Introduction to Four Orders God initiated all four orders. They are Creation, Israel, Redemption and Church orders. In every order God called a “man” to get involved in the order and to take responsibility to carry on. God changed his name when he selects a person for that order. (Only five person’s names were changed by God in the Bible). Every order had a “beginning” and therefore it will “end”. Every order had a definite purpose and it will be fulfilled. We have only three orders now, Creation, Redemption and Church orders. There are two kingdoms, Kingdom of Satan and Kingdom of God, and there is a war between the two. We can be in any one order only though all are connected with one another. We can leave one order and enter into another. New Heaven and New World will begin, when Jesus destroys the Kingdom of Satan and handover the other Kingdom to Father. 30 September 2011 3 Four Orders

How to bring the “Kingdom of God”?:

How to bring the “Kingdom of God”? Message is… When anyone hears the message about “the kingdom”. Matthew 13:19 Preach the word and sow more seeds The seed that Fell along the path Hears the word and does not understand it The evil one comes and snatches away The seed that Fell on rocky places Hears the word and at once receives it with joy. When trouble or persecution comes He quickly falls away The seed that fell among the thorns The worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth Making it unfruitful The seed that fell on good soil Hears the word and understands it Yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times Some people will not even listen. Some will accept it but soon fall away. Some will hold on longer but gradually lose interest. And some will hold on in varying degrees until their lives show in practice what the Gospel is all about. Matthew 13 Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? Mark 4:13 Basic and fundamental parable 30 September 2011 13 Four Orders

Church order is to work for the Kingdom of God and take care of them. Bride should be ready for the Bridegroom at any moment. Church will not go to hell but can go back to Kingdom of God .

“To call out” from where and for what?:

“ To call out ” from where and for what? Is it “called out” from Kingdom of Satan or from Kingdom of God? According to Jesus in Matthew 16:13-15 “I will build my church” from this “rock ( Petra) ” which is Kingdom of God not Jesus Christ. Church (Bride) is called out from the Kingdom of God not from the Kingdom of Satan. Church (Bride’s) responsibility is to work with Holy Spirit and build the Kingdom of God and take care of it. CHURCH (Bride) Kingdom of Satan KINGDOM OF GOD ( Petra ) P O It is from the Greek word " petros " that the word Peter is taken. " Petros " in the Greek means a stone, the small fragment of a rock, while the Greek word "Petra" means a rock, or large mass of stone. 30 September 2011 15 Four Orders

Early Church Stage (A.D. 30– A.D. 68):

Acts 2:1–13. Pentecost - The birthday of the church, in the year of our Lord 30 A.D. on the 50th day after Jesus' resurrection and the 10th day after His ascension to heaven. It was the beginning of the Gospel era. Pentecost was also called Feast of Firstfruits and the Feast of Harvest. How fitting then to have been chosen as the day for the firstfruits of the harvest of the Gospel for all nations! Early Church Stage (A.D. 30– A.D. 68) 30 September 2011 16 Four Orders

What is my responsibility?:

What is my responsibility? In the Kingdom of God Now it is important to know where am I, in these orders? You are now “Called to be saints” so grow in the Lord. Know the rules and regulations of the Kingdom and live accordingly. If not you will go to hell. (Matthew 13:41) Since you are in the Redemption order then go the Kingdom of Satan bring people to the Kingdom of God. Get help from the Church (Bride) who are there to serve you. Wait for the King and Church to come and take you to live for ever. In the Church (Bride) Paul calls you “Saints” therefore live like saints. Main job is to serve and train people who are in the Kingdom of God. It was he (Holy Spirit) who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up. (Eph 4:11-12) Spend more time in God’s word to serve people well. You will have more persecution so be strong in the Lord. 30 September 2011 17 Four Orders
