“And the LORD said unto Noah, come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation” Genesis7: 1.
This is a divine invitation and mandate to you and your entire household to come into the ark of fellowship, which is the cell or house fellowship.

House fellowship is the basic functional unit of the Church; the Church of Christ began with a little gathering of people. Jesus Christ did not start His Ministry with multitudes of people but a small gathering of two or more persons.

Partaking in house fellowship with fellow believers makes you great and a solid ground on which other great men would stand “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing” Genesis 12:2.

God is the ready to bless believers who participate in house fellowship; the divine blessings are salvation, protection, peace, righteousness, riches, wealth,inheritance of the earth, family-love, eternal life. The Bible describes house fellowship as a little or small gathering of fellow believers for the purpose sharing the Word of God.
“For who hath despised the day of small things?  for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth” Zachariah 4:10

“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:37.
Being in the ark of fellowship as it was in the days of Noah means having you and your family actively participating in house fellowship; a small gathering of believers. It is through the ark of fellowship in the home that all the families of the earth are blessed. How many Noahic house fellowships of believers are still standing? Many has fallen but God sees those who earnestly fellowship with Him.

The evidence of the love of God in your heart can be most expressed in the house fellowship. The evidence or proof of your divine love is what clarifies your love for God. A believer obtains this clearance in the house fellowship.  Believers without this proof or clearance are vainly puffed up; they are fruitless and rootless.
