A Book by:
Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr.
The home is central to all of God’s dealings with man throughout the course of time. It is His Divine “institution” and “organization” upon the earth, and for the believer, it is the Embassy of Heaven.
An embassy is “the residence or office of an ambassador.” Since the believer is an ambassador of the Lord Jesus Christ (II Corinthians 5:14-21), his home is thus the Divine Embassy of heavenly ministry. Pauline ministry is centered in the homes of believers. This is even the true sphere of the Body of Christ, and for this reason our apostle speaks of the “church in your house.”
This book doesn’t focus upon the external specifics of the ministry of Heaven’s Embassy (such as hospitality); that will be saved for another volume. Instead, it looks at the inner-workings of the Embassy itself, focusing upon its very nature and internal purpose and function.
