One writer says it very well about Biblical locality: The Bible gives the simplest guideline concerning the church. It is clear and unconfused. If we read the beginning verses of the epistles, the Acts, and the first chapter of Revelation, we meet such names as “the church which was in Jerusalem” (Acts 8:1), “the church of God which is at Corinth” (1 Cor. 1:2; 2 Cor. 1:1), and “the seven churches that are in Asia” (Rev. 1:4), which are the church in Ephesus, the church in Smyrna, the church in Pergamum, the church in Thyatira, the church in Sardis, the church in Philadelphia, and the church in Laodicea (Rev. 2:1, 8, 12, 18; 3:1, 7, 14). In the Bible the churches are divided, but what makes the division? One and only one rule divides the church. Anyone can see the answer, for it is crystal clear.

If your church does not function this way it is because of the errors of the various church periods that confused God’s way since the first century Ephesus church period, and that lost love was Biblical locality. This preceded not just the RCC Catholic (thyatira), but also the orthodox church period (pergamum), and the persecutions in the 2nd century of smyrna.

The 7 church periods are as follows,

In order to accomplish this task, observe these helpful words:

And as Jessie Penn-Lewis said, “Many think it is quite enough to pray, because God is omnipotent; but God needs men to pray who are also ready to act”. (p.177, WOTS). Cornelius prayed, and then acted sending for Peter (Acts 10.7-8). Ananias prayed about Pual and then was sent to speak to him (Acts 9.11). Moses prayed for the deliverance of Israel, and was called to be that answre to his own prayers (Ex. 3.10). Once they had revelation, and after prayer, there was this ACTION!

This is why I have a programmer working on the Meeting Place Finder for the Body of Christ as we speak,
