That they all may be one as You, Father are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. John 17: 21
In the beginning the Father, Son and Holy Spirit were in perfect agreement when They called into existence the entire universe by faith. They were together in harmony with no disagreement or division.
That is what God intends for His Body, perfect agreement and accord that has to do with singing in perfect harmony. When a trio sings in harmony in key it is beautiful, but when one is off key it is an awful sound.
Revival will never come to the Body of Christ until we repent of our disunity and division, not to mention our deep rooted racism, a generational curse that we have all received from our forefathers.
If we would really be honest and take a close look deep down into our heart, we would find division and disagreement of all kinds.
America for instance is divided by race, gender, financial status, political preference and so on and this is called freedom of choice, but in the church we don't have that luxury because we are bound by a higher law, to love one another as we love our self.
We have become just like the world when we make distinctions among ourselves and divide over such things as race, creed and political preference. The church has even added denominations to further divide the flock.
The apostle Paul rebuked the church of Corinth because because of envy, strife and division and told them they were acting like mere men. In Ephesians 4: 1-7 he states to the church of Ephesus that there is one body, one Lord, one faith and one baptism; I am sure that if Paul could see us today he would certainly roll in his grave.
Revival will never come to the American church until we repair the breach of division and racism that is deeply rooted in our culture. Repentance for the slaughter of innocent people over the past centuries must be accomplished for God to heal this land.
The fact cannot be ignored that we killed the Indian, Hispanic, Oriental and anyone else that we deemed inferior, not to mention the enslavement of the Blacks and the slaughter of fifty million unborn children all in the name of freedom. How can God bless a people with so much blood on their hands?
The people responsible for 911 were not Hispanic they were the same bunch that God sent against Israel when they rebelled against Him. The wrath of God comes against the sons of disobedience. This country has been financially blessed for years because it was a nation that feared God, but now God is requiring responsibility for all the evil that has been committed, and it is primarily the churches fault for the state that we have fallen into.
When church leadership repent of following the world and quit trying to change it politically and acknowledge Jesus as the Head then I believe God will again send revival to this land. By coming together as the Body of Christ and confessing our sins and the sins of this country and by turning away from this evil world system the Holy Spirit can again begin to lead His people into righteousness.
We as Christians in America are free to choose what we believe, but I will remind you that we are not of this world, our citizenship is in heaven and we serve a great King, the Lord Jesus Christ who is coming back to this planet shortly to render to each one according to his deeds. It is time to get ready. Amen?
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
Therefore since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness. II Peter 3: 10-12
May God have mercy on us!
