Has God An Organization On Earth Today ?
I have read the Bible .
I have never found the word “organization”, nor the fact that God would ever had or has an “organization” on earth .
The humans want to understand through the word “organization” God’s theocratic arrangement. BUT what really would fit with this word (organization), it is found only in Heavens !
God’s Organization (theocratic arrangement) is in Heaven and it is Heavenly.
And when Jesus Christ came on earth , he did not call it “God’s organization” but God’s KINGDOM !
And he taught us that Father’s will is that this Kingdom to come on earth.
And he taught us to pray for that.
And because Father commanded to Jesus followers to “obey the Son” (Matt.17:5), we are praying until today “Let Your Kingdom come…”
That is the most powerful proof that “God’s Organization” is not on earth today, because we all admit that His Kingdom is not here yet !
Well, but then , what does God has on earth ?
He says He has a people !
But has He always had “a people” on earth ?
NO ! because the history of His chosen people begun with God’s “pulling his people out of Egypt”.
So, before of that event God had individuals and “family” .
When the Israelites entered in Egypt they were a “family” (of seventy souls). And there they become a “people”.
And what God always had on earth are “human souls” because He is the OWNER of them … Ezekiel 18:4
“Behold, all souls are Mine;
the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine
The soul who sins will die.”
What is God doing “always” is as it follows :
“The LORD looks down from heaven
on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.”
So, we can say that “always” God has been having on earth individuals who “seek after Him”, to know (understand) Him – but not “organization”!
Now , Jesus has formed the “Christian community” within which God’s Kingdom has to come .
And how does He did it ?
To the “two greatest commandments” (to love God…and the neighbor) Jesus has added another one through which He fixed the “center” of the “Christian community”.
As a planet is formed by firstly fixing its “center/point of gravity” so did Jesus:
He gave “a new commandment” to His followers:
34.“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
“By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Through these words Jesus has fixed the “center of gravity” for the Christian community !
There was never need for a human “organization” to keep His faithful ones united !
That commandment works (like a gravitational force) in those who really have faith in Jesus and it produces unity (not uniformity).
Within this (worldwide) “community” (or ekklesia) the Heavenly Kingdom of God will “come on earth” in short time / at God’s established time.
Regarding the much used phrase:“God doesn’t deal with individuals, only with his organization” there is an inspired scripture proving how God deals with men:
“When He keeps quiet, who then can condemn?
And when He hides His face, who then can behold Him,
>>> That is, in regard to both nation and man. ”
So, Jehovah deals with “both nation and man”/ individuals and group of individuals/people/nation (his people)…
… while He may be “at peace” with a certain His servant , at the same time He may be “angered” over His nation , as a “whole”
… while He may be “at peace” with His “people” , He may manifest His anger over a certain “individual” who proves to be “law transgressor”
