Spiritual Covering

Well God, if we’re heading off as “missionaries” we need to make sure we have a spiritual covering, right?  Yes, I am being sarcastic, but some of you reading this may be saying to yourself, yes.  But where in the Bible does it teach that?

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 5;19

So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise.

Isaiah 61:1-3

1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
Because the LORD has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

I won’t go into a 38 page blog posting on this lie regarding the need to spiritual covering other than that of Jesus Christ…

I will say that God took me through a study on the subject and through His Holy Spirit His Truth has shown through, which is clearly spelled out in His Word.  He has clearly directed us to go, go under Him alone, no NGO, no non-profit, no ministry, just purely and strictly under Him, His Name, Jesus Christ.

I will admit, the first question everyone has when we tell them what we’re doing is, “what ministry / church / organization are you going with / under?”  Answering this question was difficult in the beginning.  Now I simply say we are going under Jesus Christ, sent out by the body of Christ.  Our “church” body is in WA, VA, Africa, India, Central America, etc.  Close friends, mentors, men and women of God who we respect, seek advice, wisdom and correction from.  Yes, we are crazy for Christ but we do not want to be off base, we want to be grounded in His Word and grounded in Christ.  But, yes, crazy none the less.  ;)
