The Unity Of Faith Part IV
"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven." Matthew 18:19
The power of agreement is one of the strongest bonds there is and it yields the fruit of unity to those who would choose to be in one accord. Today it is hard to find anyone who agrees with another about anything, but in the beginning it was not so. The power of Three to agree created the entire universe and all it contains by speaking out in faith before time began!
The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are the example of the power of agreement as displayed in the book of Genesis when the world was formed and man was created out of the dust. From that time forward when Satan entered the creation of God his greatest weapon against the saints was and is division. United we stand and divided we fall is a truthful statement and has worked for the enemy for aeons against any form of unity including families, governments and churches. Our only hope for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is to unify under the banner of the cross to once again see the power of Holy Spirit poured out upon the saints, giving them strength to conquer the powers of darkness!
When one is born again he is united in Christ and becomes one with the Trinity of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one faith, one Lord and one baptism, and ultimately one family of God. Even though the church is divided by local, nonetheless they are one family although they have been made to believe they belong to a human shepherd. In order for the family of the living God to become free from the bondage of denomination, division and man-centered, man-controlled religion, repentance and the renewing of the mind must first be accomplished. Without truth, freedom will never come to the bride who is held captive by guilt, shame and condemnation heaped upon her by greedy shepherds, devoid of the knowledge and wisdom of God!
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. Ephesians 4:4-6
THE POWER OF THREE TO AGREE
"For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20
Within the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ lies the pattern and blueprint of the unification of His body! Beginning with the Trinity, the world was formed and God gave it a command:"Be fruitful and multiply." Throughout the old testament scriptures God laid out the spiritual foundation of His church yet to come in the future with the birth of His Son Jesus, the Last Adam. And so it begins, the old priesthood is done away with as well as the old ritualistic form of worship and a new and living way has begun!
Jesus chose twelve master builders and sent them two by two being in agreement with them thus creating what I call the T-CELL, a replica of the Trinity, God being in agreement with man. Three in agreement to replicate and multiply by divine design and not through man-made programs and promotion, but by the power of three to agree! As the twelve obeyed and went out preaching the gospel of the kingdom, healing the sick, casting out demons and raising the dead, the body of Christ was again being raised from the dust and one hundred twenty came to be new disciples of this Last Adam, the Lord Jesus Christ, God, clothed in flesh.
Jesus said, "To you it has been granted to know the mysteries the kingdom of God," and the mystery is this: God came in the flesh as the Last Adam to create the Last Eve, the body of Christ, a spiritual woman to be His wife and to birth spiritual children. The devil defeated the first Adam and Eve, a new race of divine people destined to rule God's new kingdom, but was defeated by the Lord Jesus on the cross, thus creating the Last family on earth, the spiritual bride of Christ!
And so it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being," The last Adam became a life giving spirit. I Corinthians 15:45
THE IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY
As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. I Corinthians 15:49
Jesus was the Seed to be planted in the earth and raised up to Heaven to provide intersession and Headship to His newly formed body created out of the dust as Adam was, but instead of being a fleshly human being, the new man contained within him a life giving Spirit. The Trinity had once again created a replica of itself in the form of a supernatural being, indestructible, eternal and in total unity with the Father Son and Holy Spirit!
A new race of divinely created worshipers, a royal priesthood of ambassadors sent out to conquer the powers of darkness and reap a harvest for the expansion of God's new kingdom. A kingdom government established in the twelve giving spiritual oversight and intersession to thousands of newly born saints bathed in the unity of Holy Spirit's power, love and grace. The body of Christ was now a force to be reckoned with as it moved in the Spirit replicating the very image of God in the earth in men and woman who would receive His mercy and become indwelt with the Spirit of the living God.
The last Adam was created in the image of God, raised from dust and filled with His Spirit. Jesus was again alive and walking in the supernatural expression of the Triune God, no longer bound to earthly laws and restrictions, empowered with the life giving Spirit of grace and giving birth to a new race of supernatural beings, in turn giving birth at an astronomical rate to new believers in Christ and spreading the gospel of the kingdom around the world in total unity to one another bearing the image of the heavenly Man.
"And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man. I Corinthians 15:49
