WORSHIPPING AT HOME AND IN CAPTIVITY ( Book of Acts )
Many Resources : Audio sermons, Hymns and Videos


WORSHIPPING in CAPTIVITY

The word "captivity" in the Bible means several things. It sometimes means being arrested and imprisoned in jails or detention centers. ( including handcuffs, feet shackled, solitary confinement, interrogations etc.)
It sometimes means quarantines and internment camps.
It sometimes means relocation to another country, deportation.
It sometimes means labor, work and death camps.

"Captivity" basically means that one is captured by agents hostile to Christianity.

" If any man have an ear, let him hear.
He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity:
he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.
Here is the patience and the faith of the saints."
Rev. 13: 9, 10 .

Also see
Jeremiah 15 :2
"And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee.
' Wither shall we go forth ?' [ meaning 'where shall we go ?' ] "Quo Vadis ?"

"
then thou shalt tell them :
"Thus saith the LORD; such as are for death, to death.
And such as are for the sword, to the sword.
And such as are for famine, to famine;
And such as for the captivity, to the captivity."


If , as Christians, we are put in jail for our beliefs, then jails and camps become our "home".
Paul the Apostle (and Barnabas and Peter and many other Christians) worshipped God
1-on-1 in the loneliness of a prison cell. It helps to memorize songs, and portions of Scripture
(such as the Psalms) in order to do this.

How many songs have we memorized ? How many Psalms do we know by heart ?
Can we make melody in our hearts when there can be no audible singing allowed ?
Do we even now pray continuously throughout the day, as needs arise ?
Can we pray in the Holy Ghost (tongues) ? Not necessary, but helpful.

If you want to memorize hymns and Scripture, then may I suggest that one begins TODAY to
print-out the words to Hymns and Songs that edify ;
and then sing them over and over again until memorized.

"I'd Rather Have Jesus"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Tgw0-6drxQ

Suggested Psalms to memorize : Psalms 1 ,
18 , 23 , 27 , 42, 46 , 84 , 91, etc.; writing them down,
and reciting them over and over again until they are memorized.
Each time one memorizes a hymn, a psalm, a quote etc. one is strengthening one's self to
be able to endure hardships.

It is best to start today. In a few days you will have rivers of living waters flowing from your innermost being , encouraging and strengthening and revitalizing you in time of need.
John 7:37

"Though the outer man perish, the innner man is renewed, day by day."
2 Corinthians 4:16


Here are examples of Christians worshipping God in their new home : jails.
Acts 5: 18 .... Acts 12: 4 .... Acts 16: 23 .... Acts 23: 35 ..... Acts 26: 10 ...... 2 Corinthians 11: 23.

Paul wrote the book of Philippians and 2 Timothy from jail.
The Concordance uses the word "bonds" for jail.
Ephesians 3:1 ; and Ephesians 4:1 and Ephesians 6:20 ; Philippians 1: 7 + 13 ; Colossians 4: 3 +18 ;
2 Timothy 1:8 and 16 ; and 2 Timothy 2: 9.


Our worship time at home consists of singing a few hymns, reading portions of Scripture,
and sharing what God has done in our lives for that day or week. We pray for our needs and the needs of others (healings, employment, etc.)

For in-depth studies, we access the audio-tapes below.
There is no "mentoring", or "shepherding". Each one is taught by the Holy Ghost.
Please see
John 14, 15 and 16 on how the Holy Spirit will teach us all things.

1 John 2 : 27
"The anointing which you have received of Him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you,
but the same anointing shall teach you of all things, and is truth and is no lie,
and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in Him."


The best worship service is a hymn, a Bible reading , meditation, prayers, a testimony and alms.
"Forsake not the assembling of yourselves together" Hebrews 10:25 was written to people worshipping in their homes. Church-buildings didn't exist until centuries later, after Constantine.
 
Churches Long Ago ....Gene Edwards
"The first church buildings ever erected on this planet were planned and begun in 323."
He [ Constantine] built a new and uninhabited city from the ground up. In it he commissioned the building of pagan temples, and something he designated as buildings for Christians to meet in. A pagan temple of that time was a small, round building, with stairs leading up to an altar in the middle. Usually the people gathered around the temple and worshipped while standing outside. Across the street from some of these pagan temples, Constantine commissioned Christian meeting places. These buildings were not shaped like pagan temples, but like the government civic auditoriums. (Christians had always met inside. But it was inside of homes). Here, for the first time, stood officially designated places for Christians to meet. This was a wonder which no Christian had ever seen before. Put another way, it was in 324, almost three hundred years after the birth of the church, that Christians first met in something we now call a "church building." For all three hundred years before that the church met in living rooms!

Constantine built these assembly buildings for Christians not only in Constantinople, but also in Rome, Jerusalem, and in many parts of Italy, all in A.D. 324. This triggered a massive "church building" fad in large cities all over the Empire.

Gene Edwards Autobiography
http://www.geneedwards.com/autobiography.shtml

"Where two or more are gathered together in My Name, there I AM in the midst of them" Matthew 18:20
Got two people ?? Got worship ??

The more Bible reading and studying done at home, the stronger the Body of Christ becomes. The more reliance upon ministers and ministries, the more dependent we are upon others for our homework ( and interpretations. ), and the less reliant upon the Holy Ghost alone.

We highly recommend the following prophecy videos.
Our only disagreement is with the fact that these videos say that one cannot be saved in the Great Tribulation because of delusion. We disagree.
Many will be saved in the Great Tribulation ..even those who refused grace earlier.
The only requirement for salvation is repentance. ...any time, any place, anyhow. Yesterday, today and forever.
Other than that , these are excellent end-time videos and are highly recommended; especially because prophecy is no longer heard in our churches
( only the Rapture, and hardly even that ).
