Unity of Spirit
This is the difference between the Universal Church and other churches...
“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. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” John 17:21-23
The devil knows the strength of being ONE, and that’s why, from the very beginning with Adam and Eve, he has been trying to make man break this unity through sin. This is our strength: Unity! The church must be one – the pastors one, the assistants one, the people one! This way, no one will be able to stop us! This is the difference between the Universal Church and other churches. And for this reason, the devil tries to break this unity to weaken the Church! If we are united with our Lord, we will be united with one another. There will be no time to look at other things… time for squabbles, small problems, etc. In this great Fast of Daniel, we will be one with our Lord, and one with each other. We are going to go all out against hell! There will be a great spiritual revival all over the world!
“And the Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.’” Genesis 11:6
Our God knows the value, the strength and the greatness of unity of spirit! Therefore, we cannot lose or let our unity be broken. Sin is what separates us from God. It is what breaks this unity. LET US KEEP WATCH!
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
