CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) and the TRUE CHURCH!
Acts 5:29 (KJV) Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
Hebrews 10:25 (KJV) Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;
but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Ephesians 5:23b-24a (KJV) Even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ,
Psalm 122:1 (KJV) I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Romans 14:23 (KJV) And he that doubteth is damned... for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
Jeremiah 17:5 (KJV) Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
Jeremiah 17:7 (KJV) Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
2 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV) (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe
that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
In obedience to THE LORD Our God and His Holy Word, we at 'The Lord's Tabernacle' WILL continue to hold weekly Bible Study and Church Worship Services as normal despite the paranoia consuming this sinful ungodly world.
**Masks, face-coverings, and "social distancing" are STRICTLY PROHIBITED / FORBIDDEN! - (NOT allowed!)**
Just as Prophets Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and Amos, as well as Apostles Peter, John, Paul, and Silas, we will NOT bow down to man nor government nor the fear they have instilled in people and requiring gatherings of all sorts to be halted during this (or any) time. NO human has authority to usurp Almighty God nor to close HIS church/temple/tabernacle under ANY circumstances. And our church WILL obey Him who sits upon the Throne. No TRUE church will close their doors. FALSE "churches" (synagogues of Satan) will close. TRUE CHURCHES won't!
While the two (2) facilities we use (not owned by us) are not currently available to be used, 'The Lord's Tabernacle' WILL continue to hold worship services at our usual dates and times at our headquarters church office location., which we have already begun doing so effective Saturday March 14, 2020, until further notice. Unfortunately, this church location has limited (filled) space that wasn't originally intended for larger groups to come together in, so we will not be able to hold but a handfull of people per service. But THIS church WILL remain open, PERIOD!
We will continue to record each service and upload them online so that those who could not attend in-person can still hear the Word of God and enjoy the services. We would like to assure everyone that not only will the service from March 14 be uploaded soon, in addition to each service going forward, but we will also have nearly every Sabbath School Class and Saturday Worship Service from October 2019 until now all uploaded very soon. We appreciated your patience and support as our staff works to get our videos to you and bring you God's Holy Word.
We will resume holding services for "unlimitied" general public to attend at our new location and will update you.
The Most Reverend,
BISHOP E. L. GALES
Presiding Bishop and Chief Apostle of the 'Pentecostal Holiness Church of Christ ®'
