Who are the Congregations of God?

In the Bible, they are called "ekklesia" in the Greek language. It is the group Jesus said he would bring together and they are identified by scripture as those that obey God's laws and love one another. There are a few scriptures that tell us how to determine who God's people are.
"But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you."
Exodus 31:13
God gave us the sabbath as a sign as well as a day of rest.
By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
John 13:35
Jesus says that his followers are identified by their love for each other.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 14:15
He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.
John 14:24

The commandments are not limited to only what is found in the New Testament of the Bible, but all of God commandments.
