Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
The following is an excerpt from an essay, "The New Way," which can be found at https://patradallmann.wordpress.com/. The essay is based upon ministry given in a Philadelphia meeting on 11/5/17.
There is a story about Jesus that takes place after he’d been ministering for a while. He was at home, visiting with his brothers shortly before a festival was to occur in Jerusalem. His brothers were planning to go to the festival, but Jesus was not planning to go with them. The brothers spoke to Jesus, perhaps to chastise him for not going, or perhaps to mock him. They said to Jesus, if you have a message for the people, why don’t you go to the festival and give it? No one who wants to be known acts in secret. Show yourself to the world. Jesus responds by saying: “My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready”(Jn. 7:6).
