For the Samaritans, the center of worship was on Mt. Gerizim. For the Jews, Jerusalem was the place on earth where God had placed His Name. But Jesus announced a new order to the woman of Samaria, "…the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him."
There is no longer a single place on earth which is designated for worship. In our dispensation, a Holy Person has taken the place of a holy...
Bible Verses: John 4:21Genesis 49:10Matthew 18:20
When Jesus spoke these words, He was referring to a meeting of the church convened to deal with a sinning member who refuses to repent. Other efforts to handle the offender have failed and now he is brought before the church. If he still refuses to repent; he must be disfellowshipped. The Lord Jesus promises His presence at such a meeting called to deal with a matter of church discipline.
But the verse surely has a wider application. It is true wherever and whenever two or three are...
Bible Verses: Matthew 18:20Acts 2:42Genesis 49:10Psalms 50:5John 20:24
Men are fully aware of many of the advantages of partnerships. They even form partnerships for the prosecution of some labors that would seem most likely to be well performed by a single individual; as for instance, the labors of authorship. But they are not aware that any gain would result from entering into partnership, with the promises of God as their capital, and the throne of grace as their place of business.
The encouragement of the text does not address itself merely to an...
Bible Verses: Matthew 18:19
We cross sea and land to visit the holy places. We exult to look upon the wretched city that bears the name of the place where Christ was condemned to death. We say, this stream he crossed, this mountain he stood upon, this valley he traversed, this shore he visited, in this town he was born, in this place he was brought up. Romanists, Greeks, Armenians, who know of no other holy places, jostle us and outstrip us. But the question, " Where is Christ to be found now?" is far more important...
Bible Verses: Matthew 18:20
Whenever two or three of you come together in My name, I am there with you. (Matthew 18:20 CEV)
We must be completely clear as to what it is
that God is particularly concerned with at this time in the world's history,
and, therefore, what it is that we who are the Lord's children are called unto. The thing that God is doing in this
dispensation is the formation of a...
Wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) into My name, there I AM in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20 AMP)
Jesus, as the Truth, is
contrasted with Satan, the liar. But He is also contrasted with all
representations, types, symbols, outward forms, etc., which were – and are – not
the true, the real. When our Lord spoke of His body as the Temple,...

Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them. § Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. § My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. § “Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord, “and not a God afar off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shall not...

I love the Lord, because He has heard My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.When you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. § The Spirit … helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.I desire...

If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.

And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.“Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?” … “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My...
