We talked about you this morning. We prayed for you to get this paper. We probably even handed it to you, and we can't wait to meet you one day at our house. I say "our house" because we all own it together. We all live together, just like the church in Acts 2 and 4.
This paper is not a tract. It's an invitation to come and see the most marvelous thing on the earth -- the restored church where all live together and share all things in common. To restore something, you have to bring it back to its original purpose and design.
But since you're not here yet, we'll keep praying about how to get you here. Because if you came, you could see, hear, and under-stand what can only be perceived by coming. That's what we did. It gave us hope that we could live this life, too.
Know this: It is possible to live together and turn the world upside down as a witness of the coming Kingdom, Then others can see and believe, too. The Holy Spirit entering a willing heart makes it possible.
The Spirit that makes this life possible is calling you to come and see what He is doing, and we're calling you, too. "The Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come!'"
Our inability to overcome our personal problems, and the major disappointments in going to church, actually came from not being the church. Once we started being the church instead of going to church, everything changed. We've been telling people about our wonderful life for more than 40 years now. You've got to come! It's the most amazing thing you'll ever see!
Critics say, "Oh, that was just for back then."
But know this: It is for now!
