The Infallible True Church Of Y’Shua The Messiah Of The Apostolic Faith has come from a mighty, mighty long way.
As you read in the name of the church, we are ‘Of The Apostolic Faith’. This means that we are part of the movement Bishop S. C. Johnson began back in the early 1900’s. But more importantly, it means that we believe and practice the teachings of the Lord and His apostles.
To get a perfect understanding of exactly where we came from, let’s start from the beginning. It’s very important to understand that the Lord only established one church, and that everyone in the church is supposed to believe the same thing. But, after the original apostles and disciples died, a terrible time of persecution and Great Tribulation took place. The followers of the Lord were forced by the Romans to cease from preaching the truth. All believers that refused to deny the Lord and the truth of the gospel were put to death in vicious ways. As the years went by, the church was filled with error, because they no longer had the church set up right, and the whole truth was not being preached in the church any more.
Nevertheless, just as Almighty Yahweh revealed to us that this Great Tribulation and stamping down of the Truth would take place, He also promised that those days would be shortened for the elect’s sake, and that He would bring the truth back into the land. (Matthew 24:21, 22) As it is written in Zechariah 13:7-9, “Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD Yahweh, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, Yahweh is my God.”
Since the Tribulation, spanning over almost two thousand years, many have received revelation from God, and, slowly but surely, the Truth is being reestablished in the land. Many know of Charles Parham and William J. Seymour, G.T. Haywood and Robert C. Lawson, Sherrod C. Johnson and S. McDowell Shelton, religious figures of the 1900’s. All of these men knew in part and prophesied in part, growing in grace and in the knowledge of the Son of God. Charles Parham and William Seymour preached that receiving the Holy Ghost is marked by the one and only sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives to utter. In order to preach this, they were forced to leave their previous churches. Haywood and Lawson began to preach Oneness instead of the Trinity, and declared that baptism must be in Jesus’ name, rather than the titles Father, Son & Holy Ghost. This revelation caused Bishop Lawson to break away and start a new assembly. Sherrod C. Johnson then broke away from Bishop Lawson because Bishop Lawson allowed women to preach. That was when the church name of ‘The Church Of The Lord Jesus Christ Of The Apostolic Faith’ came into existence. After Bishop Johnson’s death in 1961, the church was led by Bishop S. McDowell Shelton. Not many years later, the Lord rose up Bishop V. Bush, and told him to get a building in Dallas, TX in order to hold services there. And, when Harvey Washington was twenty years old, he went to that church, where Bishop Bush preached the gospel to him, and he repented of his sins, was baptized in Jesus’ name, received the Holy Ghost, and he continued steadfastly there learning the ways of God.
Harvey Washington, who is now one of the apostles of The Infallible True Church Of Y’Shua The Messiah Of The Apostolic Faith, began to receive dreams and visions from the Lord, showing him that God was going to use him. He began to receive wisdom and revelation concerning the Word of God. Over the years, the Lord taught Apostle Washington to be humble and realize that, although God did call him, he only knows in part and prophesies in part, and that he is not the only apostle, either. But, God showed him that there is a great error in the land, because most of the apostles and preachers act like they have it all. But the proof is in the pudding, that is, in the history. Just look at the history and you’ll see that our forefathers did not know it all, even when they thought they did. ‘Don’t walk in the way of your forefathers,’ the Lord told Apostle Washington. The Bible says, “Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. But if any man love God, the same is known of him.” (1 Corinthians 8:1, 2) For this reason, Apostle Washington’s desire is to work with the other apostles in the land, but not trying to make them come under his ministry, because there’s no scripture for such high-minded behavior.
There are many revelations which God has given to us through His Spirit, so many that it’s hard to choose which ones are the most important, because they all are. And now, we are blessed to see, in the church, other brethren whom God Almighty is using mightily!!! Currently in The Infallible True Church, we have two apostles, one prophet, one evangelist, two pastors, one teacher, two deacons and other men in line to be ordained. We are also working with any church that will accept us, and grow in grace with us, free from judging and despising.
So, please take time to read our literature on various subjects to catch a glimpse of all the wisdom and revelation the Lord has poured out upon us in these last and evil days, and check back as we write more literature, and as the Spirit of Yahweh continues to take us higher and higher. Come thou with us, and we will do thee good, and WE WILL MAKE HISTORY TOGETHER!!! This is the history of The Infallible True Church. We are established in the present truth!!! Thank Yahweh! We love you, in Yeshua’s name, Amen!!!
