By now you are acquainted with how very different and disruptive this message is to anything that has come along in the 500 years since the Reformation; it does not fit in any form that we presently have. I am probably more familiar with this than most because I went to school to become a pastor and for years I was a pastor of a local church in a denomination. Mine was an evolution that is largely based in, first and foremost, hungering for the truth. It was not an overnight transition, and wherever a person is at this transition is possible. It is not typically an abrupt transition. What it typically entails is you must be willing to follow where the truth leads, and you must be willing to pay the price. So no, it does not fit in anything we call a local church.
A local church is primarily the vision of a local pastor, and he or she is trying to live out their vision, and there is no room for your vision except as a support cast member. We are used to doing that because we do not know that the Spirit of God lives within us to empower a destiny that was placed in us by God when He chose to place us in our mothers’ wombs. Before you were in your mother’s womb, God decided who you would be in this world, and He never intended any form to limit that so that you could not be what He made you to be.
I’m not saying you are living as a collection of individuals; obviously, the Body of Christ is a very well ordered, properly resourced, empowered entity in the world. Anytime you are in a local setting and what you are saying or what you are learning is not consistent with what the pastor is saying, you become a problem to the continuation of his or her vision in a non-challenged way. It does not matter if God is speaking to you about these things, you cannot practice it under the arch of the predetermined scope of that vision. Eventually, you would be viewed as the enemy of the pastor and typically of the leadership. I say that without a hint of hubris. It simply is how it works. You cannot have two centers of authority in the same association. Since the leaders have the high ground, they will dictate the terms and conditions by which you may function within that ambit, and typically they do not brook dissension because it disrupts the finances and it disrupts everything else, and you’re quickly said to be causing division. Jesus said that He came to do that. “I did not come to bring peace,” He said, “I came to bring a sword; I came to set a man at variance with his father” (cf. Matthew 10:34). In the most intimate of relationships, Jesus came to be a disruptor, and He makes no apologies for it because if you are already vested in what is true, you will not be shaken. According to Hebrews the 12th chapter, the only thing that cannot be shaken is the Kingdom that you have received. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, but you have received a Kingdom that cannot be shaken (cf. Hebrews 12:25-29). Why? Because the truth will never shake the Kingdom, nor will it shake you. So when people are running scared because what you are saying is scary, it is because theirs is not the Kingdom. If it is, it cannot be shaken by the truth; it will persist. Nothing, no error has the capability of overturning the truth. Truth is unshakable. That is why it is described as being built upon a Rock, the Rock of ages.
