GOD CALLS FOR UNITY

Together

That together you may unanimously with united hearts and one voice, praise and glorify God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah.  Welcome and receive to your hearts one another, then, even as Christ has welcomed and received you, for the glory of God. … Now on one of those days Peter rose among the brethern, the whole number of whom gathered together was about a hundred and twenty.  All of these with their minds in full agreement devoted themselves steadfastly to prayer. When SUDDENLY there came a sound from heaven like the rushing of a violent tempest blast, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues resembling FIRE, which were separated and distributed and which settled on each of them.  AND THEY WERE ALL FILLED (diffused throughout their souls) with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other (different, foreign) languages (tongues), as the SPIRIT KEPT GIVING them clear and loud expression.  (Romans 15: 6,7; Acts 1: 15, 14, 2: 2-4)

God has recently been giving me tangible examples of the prevalent DISUNITY among the members of the body of Christ.  It is not only in the sheep; but also runs rampant among the shepherds.  This is a demonic force that is successfully weakening and dividing the strength and power that COULD BE OURS as joint heirs in Jesus!  For God’s Word tells us that the Gospel can be covered up with a veil that hinders our knowledge of Him (God).  It is hidden only to those perishing; it is obscured to those who are SPIRITUALLY DYING; and veiled to those who are lost.  For the god of this world has blinded the UNBELIEVERS minds, that they should not discern the truth which prevents them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is  the image and likeness of God (2 Corinthian 4: 3-5).

I have been called to minister in Nakuru, Kenya, to speak and minister in a Women’s conference in Eldoret, Kenya, and to minister in Uganda.  God has been downloading the “global” message to the people of Eastern Africa and I am CONVINCED (FULLY BELIEVE) that Holy Spirit will be pouring out in CLEAR and LOUD EXPRESSION of the Father’s heart in these meetings.  I am EXPECTING REVIVAL of great magnitude to occur!  This time spent in UNITY (ONE SPIRIT: ONE ACCORD) of all the members of the body of Christ in these areas of Africa will cause a HOLY SPIRIT TSUNAMI of thousands upon thousands to be delivered, healed, and set free from ALL demonic oppression and rule, in Jesus name! The Church in Africa WILL KNOW what their POSITION IS IN CHRIST and they WILL ARISE as BRIGHT STARS, illuminating the darkness around them.  WHY IN AFRICA?  Because there is GREAT SPIRITUAL HUNGER in the people…they are CALLING OUT TO GOD; they recognize their NEED for Him and they are EXPECTING and TRUSTING IN HIS ABILITY to bring LIFE to the people!  (Ephesians 2: 18-22; 1: 5-7)

I personally pray for the church as a whole and one prayer I feel speaks to the spiritual apathy today is Ephesians 1: 17-23.   I BELIEVE THERE IS A REMNANT WHO HEAR AND BELIEVE; RISE UP INTO YOUR POSITION AND AUTHORITY IN CHRIST NOW!

    • Praise the Lord for His many blessings. So many passages in Psalms give us frequent reminders to PRAISE THE LORD, in all seasons/trials in our day-to-day life! I think of one passage that honors God’s faithfulness in every little thing that concerns us and I pray it over all the work you are all doing in Honduras and over each of your personal lives:
      “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting (eternal) covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well- pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory forever and ever, Amen” (Hebrews 13: 20, 21)

  2. I am very much keyed up with your words and hereby set my time daily for making intercessory for your ministry. Thank you and God be with you!
    Bro. Obadiah

    • Thanks be to God, Obadiah. I appreciate your prayers and look forward to meeting you in Kenya very soon 🙂

  3. Church unity and the bickering among the “saved” is a great concern for me. Shouldn’t the battle be waged against the enemy???

    • God’s Word totally agrees with you and I in this.

      Proverbs 6: 16-19 addresses 7 things the Lord hates: pride, lying, murder, evil heart, feet that run to evil, false witness (gossips, etc.), AND HE WHO SOWS DISCORD AMONG THE BRETHERN.

      I am also reminded of what Jesus spoke in Mattthew. I know he’s not addressing this issue specifically but I feel it applies nonetheless. “And Jesus said to the Pharisees, Any kingdom that is divided against itself is being brought to desolation and laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will last or continue to stand” (12: 25). The church is at least weakened when there is division to my way of thinking.

      James 4: 1 says, What leads to strife and how do conflicts originate among you? Do they not arise from your sensual desires that are ever warring in your bodily members? and verse 2 goes on to discuss all types of things people do within the body of Christ…

      So there you have it: I stand on God’s Word as the only truth and I am thankful for the grace that is changing me from where I was to where I need to be! 🙂
