WHY DO WE LACK UNITY? Because of man - made inner and outer circles!

1. We lack unity because we all think we are the only ones perfect! The perfect form the inner family circle, and the imperfect are pushed to the outer circle! If the church is only for your own family, your robots, and relatives, you should start a club, not a church! 1 Tim 3:15 I write so that you will know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth. Promote God's family, not your family
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named Eph 3:14, 15

2. The inner circle call themselves balanced Christians, while they have watered down standards for their inner circle, like the pharisees, and to the contrary, very strict tightened stringent standards for the outer circle! Jude 1:11 What sorrow awaits the inner circle if they do not repent. Let us pray they do: for they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.

3. The inner circle has 1 finger pointed at the outer circle, not knowing there are 3 fingers of their own hand (conscience) pointing back at themselves, the inner circle of perfect pharisees! Jude 1:19 These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. Jude 1:19 This inner circle of pharisees are the ones who are creating divisions among you. They follow their natural instincts because they do not have God's Spirit in them.

4. This inner circle claims they are anchored to the rock, and geared to the time, while literally they are crucifying Jesus again by causing division in the body of Christ, the church! Jude 1:12 This inner circle people according to the Lord's Word are a disgrace at the special meals you share with other believers. They eat with you and don't feel ashamed. They are shepherds who care [only] for themselves and will not accept an anointed prophet or pastor. They are dry clouds blown around by the winds. They are withered, uprooted trees without any fruit. As a result, they have died twice.

5. Consequences of lack of diversity: There was a company in Oak Ridge, TN where everyone wore a black pant, white shirt and blue tie. The company sank like the Titanic because it did not promote equality in diversity and all were jobless in one single day without their Titanic!

6. Lack of prayer: Let us pray fervently for our churches so they will not collapse because perfect people form the majority!!

7. Hypocrisy: You may be clean on the outside and think you are perfect, but the blood of Jesus and the fire of the Holy Spirit, aided by the Holy Bible, cleans from the inside out.

8. Form of Evangelism by the inner circle: Matt 23:15, How terrible it will be for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to make a single convert, and when this happens you make him twice as fit for hell as you are. We need to promote unity before bringing in new people and having them exposed to our disunity in the church. A house that is divided will not stand - Jesus Christ

SUMMARY

Hallelujah! In essentials unity, in non-essentials diversity, and in everything love.

Let's us pray that this inner and outer circle will collapse like a soap bubble, so Jesus will come back into the church, and the demons will leave, so unity will triumph under the cross of Jesus which united heaven and earth, east and west; unity through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit and the cleansing power in the blood of Jesus, like the early church that was united, being one heart and one soul. Let's not wait for God to allow persecution of the church by non - Christians to bring unity in the church filled with Christians.

DO ALL YOU CAN TO STOP A FIGHT
BE HUMBLE AGAINST YOUR BROTHER DON'T GRUMBLE
LEARN FROM JESUS WHO ETERNALLY LOVE US

Jesus was a stranger
Born in a manger
To deliver us from danger
Because He was humble
Some people mumble
On the Rock they stumble
That's why they miss Him
But those who seek Him
Jesus will live within
The God whom you seek
Is humble and meek
Trash your pride
In His presence hide
Swim against the tide
For He is the Way Truth Life
His Word is perfect
There's no Book so accurate

FOCUS ON JESUS
DON'T FORGET THE HUGS & KISSES
WILL TAKE YOU A LONG WAY
UNTIL THE TRUMP SOUNDS ON THAT BRIGHT SUNNY DAY
LOVE YOUR FAMILY BE UNITED
THEN YOU WILL BE CONNECTED
AS YOU WALK IN FELLOWSHIP
TRUE LOVE & FRIENDSHIP
SAVE THE CHURCH FROM DISINTEGRATION
BY PROMOTING TRUTH AND INTEGRATION
JUST LIKE THE CROSS ON THE HILL
WHERE CHRIST FULFILLED GOD'S WILL
TO PURCHASE THE CHURCH THEY PIERCED HIS SIDE
WHEN THE 2nd ADAM SLEPT GOD CREATED THE BRIDE
WITH HIS OWN BLOOD HE WASHED HIS WIFE
SO WE CAN BE FOREVER AT HIS SIDE
WE ARE ONE BREAD GOD'S BODY
LET THERE BE NO SCHISM LOVE EVERYBODY

HE'S STILL WORKING ON ME
TO MAKE ME WHAT I OUGHT TO BE
TOOK HIM JUST A WEEK TO MAKE THE MOON AND STARS
SUN AND THE EARTH AND JUPITER AND MARS
HOW LOVING AND PATIENT HE MUST BE
HE'S STILL WORKING ON ME

THERE REALLY OUGHT TO BE
A SIGN UPON MY HEART
DON'T JUDGE ME YET
THERE'S AN UNFINISHED PART
BUT I KNOW ONE DAY ACCORDING TO HIS PLAN
I'LL BE FASHIONED BY THE MASTER'S LOVING HAND
NOW HE HEARS ME WHEN I PRAY
I SEEK HIM EVERYDAY
HE IS THE POTTER I'M THE CLAY

MAN MAY CLENCH HIS FIST
WE MAY BE ON DEVIL'S HIT LIST
UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH MY WORD WILL NOT FAIL
NEITHER MAN'S WILL NOR HELLS GATES WILL PREVAIL
JESUS SHED HIS BLOOD
YOU CANNOT STOP IT WITH A FLOOD
DON'T WORRY
JESUS WON THE VICTORY
FORCES OF HELL CANNOT PREVAIL
CHRIST HAS GONE ALREADY
INTO HEAVEN FOR YOU & ME
THE CHURCH WILL GROW
UNTO IT ALL NATIONS FLOW
ON THAT DAY JESUS WILL SAY
YOU HAVE DONE WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
I AM PROUD OF YOU
MY FACE YOU NOW SEE BY MY GRACE
OVER ALL THE CHURCH WILL REIGN
WITH JESUS WHOSE NAME WE PROCLAIM
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD
THE ALMIGHTY GOD
HE IS THE KING OF KINGS
WORSHIP HIM ALL YE THINGS

Donít act like lords over Gods heritage
We are all of Christ's lineage
Jesus shed His blood
Rose from the dead
After that he said
"You are ONE
Victory is won"
Let's all unite
As we share the bread and wine
Eph 4:4, 5
One hope one Lord one faith one baptism
Let there be no schism
United follow the Lord who goes before
That together we reach the other shore

JESUS CHRIST IS COMING SOON
REPENT WHILE THERE IS STILL ROOM
LOOK UP, THINK HEAVENLY
THINK ABOUT ETERNITY
IF THE TRUMPET SOUNDS TODAY ARE YOU READY?
MANY WILL BE LEFT OUT
WHEN CHRIST DESCENDS WITH A SHOUT
NO MORE CHANCE TO BE THE BRIDE WHEN THE LAMB LEAVES WITH HIS WIFE
GET READY TO MEET HIM
CLEANSE YOURSELVES WITHIN
BURY YOUR HATE PRIDE SELFISHNESS
BE FILLED WITH LOVING KINDNESS
FORSAKE HYPOCRISY PARTIALITY
PROMOTE UNITY EQUALITY
FOR GOD IS A RIGHTEOUS JUDGE
INTO HIS OCEAN OF LOVE PLUNGE
DON'T STEAL KILL DESTROY
FORSAKING ANGER, SPIRITUAL GIFTS EMPLOY
JESUS CAME TO GIVE ABUNDANT LIFE
LOVE FORGIVE AVOID STRIFE
LET CHRIST'S BLOOD PURIFY
YOUR FLESHLY DESIRES MORTIFY
EMBRACE ETERNAL LIFE
GET READY TO BECOME THE LAMB'S BRIDE!

Christians. Why are we called the Body of Christ? How does being in the Body of Christ affect you?

The body of Christ is beautiful beyond measure to Christ. It is his church, it is he who he died for. It is his bride. We who have been called apart to live for him, have been invited into the Body of Christ. I know that I am part of the Body of Christ because His spirit bears witness to this in my spirit dear sister. The Holy Spirit speaks to all who are part of the body of Christ. He convicts us of sin, he comforts us in loss. The spirit transforms and energizes us too. In this last year I have personally come to understand so much about our Lord Jesus Christ through the body of Christ. Fellow members have helped me grow, have comforted me in times of stress and encouraged me in my growth. All because our Lord has place them in my life.

One of the deep visions that the Holy Spirit has helped me discover through the words and knowledge of others who are in the Body of Christ is the vision of a church that isn't encumbered within the confines of a building. I have begun to understand more of what my position is in the body of Christ. I do treasure more and more this Body of Believers of whom Christ himself has called, called from the world. To help and deliver his messages. I understand that I am part of this bride of Christ...and that he honored us women in this very way. The bride of Christ...think of it! God chose the female form to describe this ideal faith community called the body of Christ. The body of Christ though described as a body ...is not limited to body form. It is not a human entity. It is full of God's Holy Spirit and is of Christ, for he is the head! The body of Christ bears masculine features because her head is none other than Christ himself. The body of Christ is alive. Always changing, always growing because the Holy Spirit itself is helping Christ as its head to do this. Think on this the Holy Spirit in the body of believers is without limit. It is always developing, regrouping and blossoming. We are producing fruit and as he works within us we are being changed more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus. This is part of His divine function..to help us be transformed. And in does much of this work through other believers! Our death and dead wood are bringing forth new buds and vines continuously...even when we fail. Or are not watered...God does sustain us until the Holy Spirit can identify in us what our problems are. These are some of the things he is teaching me. He is cutting off death in me, removing the decayed parts, through other members of his body. He is using them to help me understand and see the spiritual things I can't yet see. I think you can see this growth in others and we too in seeing are being given the valuable gift of sharing...and in sharing comes healing! WE begin to have the vitality of Jesus himself...So great is the body of Christ!

Paul clarifies something in the fourteenth verse of our Scripture text, which needs to be clarified today, "For the body is not one member, but many." People today get independent spirits and live in isolation. God does NOT want you to live in isolation.. God does not teach isolation. We are all the Church, many members brought together in unity. When you become a member, you not only have the love of God shed abroad in your heart, but you also have a special love for God's people. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. I Corinthians 12:12-27.

 

DREAM TO REALITY VICTORY OVER WORRY!

Above is a song God gave me in my dream

That always on Jesus we should lean

I got up from my sleep and remembered Him speak

"My child don't doubt in your mind

Seek me early, my Grace you will find

Remember you are one of the chosen few

You are in the Spirit an authentic Jew

Worship Him and praise Him and it shall be well with you

Seek His Kingdom first it shall be added unto you

Glorify and worship Him for He is night to you

He has gone before you and He's lived your life for you

Why worry when you can pray

Trust in Jesus He'll be your stay

Don't be a doubting Thomas

Rest fully on His promise

Be calm in the storm fear no harm

Jesus is near, to His presence draw near

Stay in His Presence, everything will be fine

Be filled with the Spirit Be strong in your mind

He will keep you safe, hold His Hand and surf the waves

Look at the sparrow, take no thought of tomorrow

Jesus goes before you, His love will see you through

I will go before you I will walk among you

I will come and manifest my power

Trust in Jesus your Strong Tower

In the night He will shine the light

Your enemies He will surely put to flight

Read the Bible, it is not for information

Meditate on it for your inspiration

Follow it for your transformation

Let the heavenly choir sing

Unto Him our praises ring

He is over everything for He's the King of Kings

Jesus is coming soon

We will fly beyond the moon

You don't need a flying saucer

Elijah went up in Chariots of fire

Jesus went up in a cloud

We will too praising loud"

Listen to this song and you'll be praising before long:
