Who are God’s true people, what are they like, and what are they not like?

  • God’s people are those who have humbly and sincerely prayed to God’s son, Jesus Christ, and asked him to forgive them of their sins (Acts 2:37-41)

 

  • Because God’s true people are sincere in their desire to serve God, they have fully turned away from committing all sin that they know – they fully obey God’s word to the best of their understanding and love and serve him with all their heart (I John 3:3-10)

 

  • God’s people are his true servants, and because they are servants, they have learned to not promote their own agenda (I Corinthians 6:19-20), to not establish their own Church (Ephesians 1:20-23), nordevelop their own doctrine (John 7:16-18 & II Peter 1:19-21)

 

  • God’s true people worship God’s son Jesus Christ as being the King over all people, nations and lands (Ephesians 1:20-23 & Revelations 19:11-16), yet they, according to the direction in God’s word, obey the rules and governments of the nations where they live (Titus 3:1), and the jobs where they work (Ephesians 6:5-8)

 

  • Because God’s true people are all servants of the same King, they are one Kingdom, one spiritual family (Ephesians 3:6-21), one Church (Ephesians 4:3-6) – they are not divided into different: Churches, religions, denominations, sects, beliefs, fellowships, doctrines, etc. (I Corinthians 1:10)

 

  • God is true and faithful in love, and his people are the same – they are true and faithful in love to God and his word, and within that context, they are true and faithful in love to each other and also to others that are not God’s people

 

  • The true and faithful presence of the Spirit of God himself dwells amongst his true and faithful people – and this very presence of God is known and felt even by those who do not serve him when they come around where God’s true people worship
