Saints, I wanted to write a short thought on facebook and social media and why it is important. Technology is only a great tool when it is under our feet. When we are able to use technology and have technology not use us it is an asset then. Facebook is a powerful networking tool that many have already connected with. Thus we have made facebook one of the key technology tools that if you have an interest and are meeting under the principles of the Gospel Fellowships one way to show your being part of this movement is to like us on Facebook.
Facebook is also a great way to share this movement with others. The Church is in desperate need of encouragement, examples and a calling out to meet in a Biblical fashion to prepare for persecution. Do your part in sharing this site and facebook page with others.

“God seems in Scripture to work in generations of 40 or 50 years. His purposes must be accomplished on earth and He will raise up individuals and even one person to accomplish that work. And if that individual fails God is patient and raises up a new servant for a new work. We see this example over and over again in the Old Testament where God lets an entire generation perish to raise up a new one that will be obedient to His call and accomplish His eternal purpose.
Denominations seem to follow this pattern also and after time as the denomination does not hear from the Lord but men and their decision making powers. Such groups God will slowly back away from to allow them to follow their own ways. Such should be feared and we should seek to be involved in God’s dynamic work of His Spirit that He is doing now. Sadly in the West many denominations resemble businesses rather than God’s work for His kingdom.
We need a simple vibrant work of God’s Spirit in our midst. Who will follow the Lord in simple obedience not seeking after gain, money, popularity but the Lord Himself and His purposes. Such a movement God is already raising up of many in the body of Christ that will not be a part of what man is doing but will only seek to be involved in the work of God. Our prayer is Gospel Fellowships will be one network for saints to connect together with this similar burden. It is our belief also that the present work of God to assemble His body is much larger than this small growing network of believers.
God truly is preparing His Bride to accomplish His end-times work. May we pray with the Prophet Habakkuk (Habakkuk 3:2):
O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.
