DIVIDED AND FAILING

If the church unite,and pray, instead of worrying and complaining, then the gates of hell will not prevail against us. What if all the churches in the world obeyed God’s word,and actually do what it says,
” If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.{2 Chronicles 7:14}.
Or what Ephesians 4:2-6 suggest,”With all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all”. God would be pleased, and the world would be better. Only if every denomination would look at it’s organization as a part of the body of Christ and do what it is assigned by God to do, then the Church would be stronger and more powerful than ever before. Denomination is the main cause of division,because they follow man’s mandate and not God’s commands.
Paul eloquently describes how the body of Christ should function in 1 Corinthians 12:14-16. However,because of division in the body of Christ the Church has weakened drastically, and is not walking in the power and authority that Jesus gives us to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, knowing that nothing shall by any means hurt us.

“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?” 1 Corinthians 12:14-16

The Church with its denominationalism has turned against each other. Instead of uniting we are divided and that’s the reason why the weapons are formed and the enemy can speak. But the devil is a liar, and we will not allow Him to sift us as wheat, because Jesus has made us more than conquerors. As believers we are in a war that will never end until Jesus returns. So let’s fight the good fight by picking up our armor listed in Ephesians 6 and send the enemy running with his lies and deceits. Satan is already defeated so let’s make sure he remembers it.

Let us follow God’s word; we are many members with denominational names, but one body as we see in 1 Corinthians 12:18-20. “God has set the members, each one of them in the body just as it pleased Him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet one body.” So remember we are one body, but many members. Therefore, the part of the body that seems non-productive, let us honor them, so that there is no schism in the body. Jesus tells us to love one another (John 13:34-35) so why are we fussing and fighting and saying that one denomination is better than the other. We are all one body, one family who serve the true and living God. Therefore let us care for each other in love and unity.

Yes, we all have different nationalities, gifts, personalities and more, but the key ingredient that holds us all together and empowers us is the Holy Spirit. We are all entitled to the same promises through Jesus Christ who is the head of the Church. Your pastor, bishop, or ministry leader is not the head, Jesus is.

Philippians 2:1-8 “Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like minded. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”

Romans 10:12 lets us know that there is no difference between the Jews and the Greeks for it is the same Lord over all, who is rich unto us all that call upon Him. Denominations are really demon nations.

Jesus, in response to the thoughts of the Pharisees after he healed a blind and mute man, said, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25

As the body of Christ, let us stand together in Jesus, for it is in Jesus that we are one.

Have you joined the body of Christ yet by confessing that Jesus is Lord and by believing that God raised Him from the dead? If not confess it now and believe now. Visit the salvation page for more information.

All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people. I ask the Lord to loose the Holy Spirit ,like the day of Pentecost,and the heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the Omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.

 

SUFFERING FOR OUR GOOD

There was nothing beautiful or majestic about His appearance, nothing that would stimulate our desire for Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a humanitarian of sorrows, and acquainted with suffering and grief. We turned our backs on Him, and looked the other way when He went by, He was despised and we didn’t care. Yet it was our sins, griefs, and weaknesses He carried; it was our burdens, sorrows, problems that weighed Him down. He knew no sin, but we in ignorance, and stupidity thought it was his own sins, that He was getting punished for, by God.

But He was wounded and crushed for our sins, He was bruised, and beaten for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed. Now in the latter days, we are like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way: your own denominations, your own doctrines, your own philosophy, your own religion, your own church, etc. forgetting that there is one God,(the true and living God) and the Lord laid on Him the iniquities, guilt, and sins of us all. He was oppressed, and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth, He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and like a sheep before its shearers is silent, He did not open His mouth (Isaiah 53:2-7).

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor, because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone, this is an all-inclusive list: Jesus died for the Jews, Greeks, gentiles, whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Japanese, everyone. And it was only right that God, who made everything, and for whom everything was made, should bring all His children to glory, through the suffering of Jesus Christ, God made Jesus the perfect leader, fit enough to bring everyone into salvation, this includes all nationality, color, and creed, no one is left out (Hebrews 2:9-10). So there is no excuse, Christ suffered for the sins of the just, and unjust, that He might bring everyone to God, yes, He was put to death in the flesh, but, made alive by the spirit (1 Peter 3:18). God sent Jesus to make, and show us the way to Him, and guarantee us,everlasting life (John 3:16-17, John  14:6), now the choice is all yours.

Friends, He could have come down off the cross, and saved Himself, but He decided to die just to save us. If you don’t know God or Jesus, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make, and your life expectancy will change from damnation to infinity. He took our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes we are healed(1 Peter 2:24). 

I give my Heavenly Father, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out. I pray it edify(s) and blesses you as it did me, and that you will allow Him to lead, and guide you down the right path to do His will, in Jesus Name, amen.
