Love - Unity - One
Sunday, February 15, 2004
You will hear a lot about love, unity and being as "one" from this ministry. Why? Because LOVE, UNITY AND BEING AS ONE IN THE BELOVED is that kind of love that will bring the return of Our Lord Jesus Christ. He is coming back for a holy love-church who love one another enough to give all they have to help the brother or sister in need who is living a holy, in unity, as one in service to God life with the beloved of God.
A church that has allowed Holy Spirit to circumsize their heart and seek God, humble themselves living holy on the way to fulfilling God's purpose for their lives.
This vessel of God's will live a love walk and long to be in unity with the Church of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ's Church is the church that walks in love and shares things with those who need things and a church who loves their neighbor as they love themselves...
It is the church that does all Holy Spirit leads them to and nothing their flesh leadss them to do as they do great exploits in the Name of Jesus...
The church who loves winning souls everywhere they go as they lay up the "Soul Winner's Crown" which is one of the four crowns we are all to have to give to Jesus one day soon when we meet Him face to face.
The sons of Issachar had a unique way of knowing the time. Today more than at any other time in the history of the Church many see the need to know the time in which we are living...
We see it as a time to concern ourselves as to how much we have allowed God to change us into LOVE and UNITY vessels of His...
So many things point to the time of Jesus' coming for His Bride. A real sign of the times is our crying out, "God, slay the evil in my heart!" True discerners of time wait on the Lord and let Him make a LOVE and UNITY vessels out of them for His Glory and Praise.
These are the remnant in the Church of Jesus Christ who humble themself and seek Him, waiting on Him to make them His Bride...
They know the time to fast and pray is NOW. This remnant vessel of God is not really concerned about how their jobs or ministries are doing as much as they are how their time is spent in His presence...
They look odd to the rest of the world since they do not seek after the things of the world...
You will never see them man-pleasing nor joining in non-remnant and worldly priority of things... Remnant church folks long to fellowship with the other sheep, because they love the sheep of Jesus so much they can't stay away from them...
They live in honor & integrity...
They are faithful, peaceful, patient & kind with LOVE and UNITY written upon their hearts for the world to see Jesus every time they look at them.
2 Chronicles 5:13 "Indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying:
'For He is good,
For His mercy endures forever,'
that the house, the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud."
The presence of the Lord was so strong THEY COULD NOT STAND. They were in UNITY and LOVE so much so that God showed up.
This is what the remnant church is all about.
The rest of the church will have church as usual. They are saved. They will go to heaven. But they will have missed the TIME of the Glory of the Lord here on earth.
2 Chronicles 7:1-2 "1 When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. 2 And the priests could not enter the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD's house."
Here is another instance of the Glory of the Lord among those who were in LOVE and UNITY. Beloved, it is so good to love the little sheep and forgive one another 70 x 70,000 times a day...
It is so good to not even remember what was done to you.
Beloved, to see the Glory of the Lord among us as we worship and exalt Him always is worth whatever we must die to for such a time as this.
Philippians 2:1-15 "1 Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2 fulfill my joy by being likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men, 8 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. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. 14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world."
Beloved, let us be God's Light Carriers so all the little sheep will see His Kingdom on earth and run to Him. Discern the time and begin to look upon the most unlovely and meanest of men as one of God's little sheep whom He longs to see saved and set free. LOVE AND UNITY is for NOW.
God bless you as we grow together in love and unity as ONE and see our awesome BRIDEGROOM JESUS RETURN - FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
