A Call to Unity / Purpose..
“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelist; and some, pastors and teachers; Verse 12; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Verse 13 says ` Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto the stature of the fullness of Christ” The Body of Christ needs each other in order to effectively fulfill God’s commission on the earth as described in Mark 16:15.
Each part of the Body doing it’s part Ephesians 4:16: (AMP)
“For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts) closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part (with power adapted to its need) is working properly (in all its functions) grows to full maturity, building itself up in love”.
With each part of the Body doing it’s part, the work of the Kingdom of our God here on the earth will be effectively accomplished according to His infinite plan.
Jesus Christ prayed for the unity of the believers John 17:20-23
“18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
We believe that the corporate anointing will be experienced in a greater measure, as the Body of Christ learns to regard each other, function together as one and walk in the love of God!
Holy Spirit – The Revealer of the Truth and the plan of God
We believe that God is raising up an army of believers in this final hour. Holy Spirit is revealing the assignments from Heaven and calling for God’s people to step up in their love walk and calling in preparation for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. You have been chosen by God to bear fruit in your carrier, ministry, community, or nation. (John 15:16, 1 Peter 2:9, Joel 2:28-32)
John 16:13-19; But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak his own message (on His own authority); but He will tell whatever He hears (from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him), and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come (that will happen in the future). (14) He will honor and glorify Me, because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine. (15) Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He (the Spirit) will take the things that are Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.We want to pause here and ask you, is the message you are sharing, preaching or teaching, from God’s Word or is it given to you by the Holy Ghost?
The Bible declares that only the truth will set people free. What is this TRUTH? The TRUTH is God’s Word. The message from God will bring victory, joy and correction to the hearers and NOT fear, defeat and condemnation. God is victorious, loving, truthful, gracious and all powerful. In John 17, He is called the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[a] in you. (18) I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. (19) Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
Is Jesus Christ really coming back and are you ready for his coming?
Yes, Jesus Christ is coming back again… Glory to God! Read more about Jesus return in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Acts 1:9-15, Revelation 19:5, Hebrews 9:28. Jesus Christ Himself spoke on the Signs of the End Time in Matthew chapter 24 -Study the whole chapter.
You may ask;
How do I determine my assignment or what God has called me to do?
First, you need to determine the will of God for your life through the study of God’s Word and by prayer. God has a plan for your life.. Jeremiah 29:11.., (Matthew 6:33).
Secondly, you need to abide in His Presence till you know your assignment. (Habakkuk 2:1.., John 15:7-8, Psalms 91:1..).
Thirdly, once you know what the Lord expects of you, step out in faith and obey Him. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you according to God’s plan for your life. Please study further Isaiah 1:19, Proverbs 3:5-6 and Deuteronomy chapter 28.
