1. The Church was Planned from the Beginning

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of

heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.”

In the latter days the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it. And we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

“And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let

us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth

of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”
