YAHSHUA, the Head of His Church

The head (brain) is the control center of the body. From controlling the breathing, the heart beating, and helping us to think and learn, to the control of all our actions and functions, it controls the muscles, facilitating the movements of the body. Together with the spinal cord it sends messages to the body through a network of nerves, called the nervous system, where information is evaluated and decisions made. An amazing organ the brain is! Behind it, there is yet the Creator, even more amazing than what He has created. YAHSHUA is the Word that spoke creation into existence, and it happened. He, for the sake of love for men, His most important creation, died to bring them back into relationship with Him once more, as it was in the days of the Garden of Eden.

When YAHSHUA went through His ordeal unto death, and death on the cross, receiving there the sentence of the curse in our instead, He then established His church at the same time, of whom He is the head, the Cornerstone, the Rock in Whom His church is built. As the head, He has all the right to control all that pertains to His body- the church. The intellect or mind, with its great ability of intelligence, is the battle field between good and evil. It is part of the soul, which is comprised of emotion, and the will also. YAHSHUA, being the head of the body, constitutes the spiritual function of the brain. His Holy Spirit communicates to the church -the body of Christ, sending messages through the study of God’s word and through prayer. But YAHSHUA is not only the invisible head of His church; He is also the visible. For every true believer reflects Whom He is, His attributes through our behavior. Every normal created being has only one head; In its normal way in which it was created, the body functions in harmony with every member of the body. Controlled by the head-brain, each member of the body responds accordingly to what the brain commands it to do. In the spiritual sense that YAHSHUA is the head of His church, the members of the body of Christ should follow the same principle in his everyday life. Otherwise, YAHSHUA’S body will be a dysfunctional body, and chaos will disturb the harmony of its unity. A thing He prayed for before His death in the John 17:20-21:  Neither for these alone do I pray, but also for all those who will ever come to believe in Me through their word and teaching, that they all may be one, as You Father, are in Me an I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You sent Me. Paul said, Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of the Spirit in the binding power of peace. [There is] one body and one Spirit- just as there is also one hope to the calling you received- there is one God and Father of [us] all, Who is above all pervading all and in all (Eph. 4: 3-4).

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
