The Prison House

Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.Col 3:11
 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36

The early Church of God was a free and united Church and as such, they were not limited by space, race, culture, language or gender. They realized that in spite of their apparent differences, they all served the same Lord and Master and were required to accept and submit to the same Spirit (The Holy Spirit) and be conformed into the same image (the image of Christ).

Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
Eze 34:2

And through covetousness shall they (the false prophets) with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
2 Pet 2:3

But the modern Church is a prison-yard of men. It is a place where different men have devised crafty means to imprison gullible and unsuspecting men within the walls of their buildings in order to control them, milk them dry of their resources and mold them into their way of thinking and like Pharaoh in Egypt, they are unwilling to let their prisoners go to serve the Lord because they know that they would become irrelevant and poor if they did so.

God did not call us to draw men to ourselves. He called us to draw them to Jesus. He did not call us to imprison men inside a building. He called us to set them free to serve and experience Him who is everywhere.

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.Acts 17:28
Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? 2 For all those things hath mine hand made.... Isa 66:1-2
He did not call us to segregate His flock. He called us to unite them into one fold and hand them over to Jesus so that there would be one shepherd and one fold.

And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. John 10:16

God is calling on all shepherds to let His sheep go to serve Him and as it was in the days of Pharaoh, all those who arrogantly refuse to let His sheep go would eventually be humiliated.

Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
Eze 34:10
