Welcome to the website forShilohouse Ministries.
In the bible as activities in the courts of different kings are described; certain servants called "eunuchs" are mentioned. There were several characteristics that most of them seemed to have in common:
1) Eunuchs served in the presence of the King
2) They prepared the bride to meet the King
3) Because they had been altered, they had no desire for
the bride and they did not seek the adoration of the bride
4) They protected the realm of the Kingdom
5) They protected the future bride
In Matthew 19:12 Jesus said "For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother’s womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it."
We believe the biblical role for ministers called to "equip the saints" is one of "eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake."
As "eunuchs" the vision for Shilohouse Ministries is very simple...
It is to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and help the bride of Christ make herself ready for His return.
Everything you read here must be seen in this light. Even with all that is written on this web site; the term 'biblical community' implies that what you will read here is only part of a conversation that needs to take place.
Since Jesus invested His vision for the Kingdom of God into the hearts of multiple disciples; it would be foolish to think that what is shared here is more than simply a small portion of what God is speaking concerning the changes that are taking place in His church.
While I may at times dogmatically state a viewpoint; even representing it as a biblical viewpoint; please do not interpret this as being closed-minded. Ir may be that you may have a whole set of scriptures that I have not considered; which in fact may cause me to see things differently. Again... what is shared here is only part of the conversation.
I believe having this conversation is akin to what Paul encouraged the Philippians to do when he told them to "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."
This first segment then of the website concerning The Vision for Reformation of the Church will I pray; be seen in this light.
Understand though; we are not simply talking about the "reformation" of a religious system; as the true church or ecclesia ("called out ones") has nothing to do with the concrete and steel buildings of men; rather it is about what He desires to do in the hearts of His people.
The Lord first began speaking this vision for reformation to me in the spring of 1995. The sum of what the Lord had shown me since then was placed on this website starting in October of 2003 and was mostly finished by November of 2004.
If you have been heavily indoctrinated in a particular church's belief system for years; some of what you read here may be hard to accept. In fact; it may even be offensive.
Many times this is do to the fact that what you have learned over the years; has been taught to you by good people who were doing their best to teach you what they had learned through others.
Please do not interpret this as a broad brush statement that the church is somehow wrong concerning their conduct over the years. In fact historically speaking; if we judge the tree by it's fruit as Jesus taught then we must conclude that the church has done many things right.
However in the last 20 to 30 years; something has gone tragically off course as the gospel of Jesus Christ has been replaced by something not seen in the pages of Holy Scripture. I think we can even say that if we look at this incrementally; then this drifting from the "narrow path" has been occurring for much longer.
Jesus said"I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."
As the body of Christ; we have drifted far from biblical ministry and the framework of biblical community . We need to collectively "examine ourselves" so that we might bear the fruit our Lord spoke of.
