THE HOUSE OF PRAYER for all people is a vision to be a people of worship and not merely a place of worship.

Grace & Peace has a name: Jesus Christ.

Titus 2:11, “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” 

Ephesians 2:14 “For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;”

The House of prayer finds meaning to its existence in the testifying of the gospel of the grace of God, that is Jesus Christ, to the sons and daughters of the stranger (people alienated from God). Isa 56:6, Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

THE GRACE OF GOD LEADS TO THE PEACE OF GOD

2 Peter 1:2, Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.

Grace and peace cannot be found in people or things, for we can have all sorts of things and people and still be utterly graceless, incomplete and restless. Grace and peace is God who lived in our midst in the form of a person, 2000 years back, his name is: Jesus.

Titus 2:11, “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” 

EPH 2:14 For he is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

HOUSE OF PRAYER: THE VISION, EARLY 2017

He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open; Numbers 24:4.

The Lord is the giver of visions; the House of prayer is His vision for His purposes.

ISA 56: 1-8 

1 Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.

3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.

4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;

5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;

7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

8 The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

THE HOUSE OF PRAYER LOGO 

Below, the logo as it was originally conceived.

Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people, ISAIAH 56:7.

Matthew 21:13 -And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

 THE PILLAR IN THE LOGO

1 Timothy 3:15 -But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

ZEC 4:10-FOR WHO HATH DESPISED THE DAY OF SMALL THINGS?

THE CALL

Called to preach Christ Crucified. But we preach Christ crucified, (1 Cor 1:23)

Called to testify the good news of the grace  of God, that the gift of eternal life is available for all through Jesus Christ.

Acts 20:24, “But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” 

Tit 1:2&3, “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour.” 

Ezekiel 37: “The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, and caused me to pass by them around about: and, behold, there were many in the open valley; and lo, they were very dryAnd he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.Thus saith the LORD GOD unto these bones; behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live.”

Titus 2:11 – For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.

Called to proclaim the good news of justification by faith. That, God justifies the ungodly (unrighteous) and credits righteousness to a person without him or her slogging for good works.

Rom 4:5&6, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.” 

Called to repair the breach.

ISA 58:12 – And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in 

Ezk 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

Neh 2:5 And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers’ sepulchres, that I may build it.

THE HOUSE OF PRAYER,

Kottayam, 2017
