Leviticus 26:8 New International Version (NIV)
8 Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you.

Consider how much more effective the Church is than 1 individual. Imagine the impact of Christians united country wide and around the world. Joining hands in the effective spreading of the word to every corner of the world. Call your friends and family, call your neighbors and co workers, lets spread the word.

  • Yes. It's God's will that we all be in one body and one faith in Him. God has been doing this through the message of Acts 2:38 since the dayd the Holy Spirit was first poured out and the church was born. But various beliefs, teachings, and denominations began rising, and people were divided into different groups. But the truth is rising back up again even greater than before during these end times, just before Jesus returns. 

    Everyone in the Bible from the day of Pentecost and on, all followed the same plan and pattern of salvation. That's why it was also called "the common salvation" and "the common faith". It died down throughout history after the time of the apostles, but the Bible says that the truth lasts through all generations. So there were always individuals or groups throughout history who had the truth and followed the message of Acts 2:38, all the way up to this day now. And it's rising back up greater than ever before. 

    It's God's will that we all follow the same plan and pattern, just like they did in the Bible. It's God's will that we all turn to God in repentance by faith in Jesus Christ, and be baptized in His name, the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and that we all be filled with the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is how God is bringing mankind all together in Him in one body in Christ and in one faith and in one Spirit. 

    That's only the beginning. After that, God can work in us to fulfill the rest of His word and will in us and send us forth as one people in Him.

  • It is sad that believers in Jesus spend more time fighting one another instead of promoting the basic gospel and goodwill.

  • Would you agree that true unity is not found in compulsory or mere outward uniformity (ie ecumenism for the sake of outward unity at the cost of truth)?

    Would you agree that there is a system identified by God in scripture, that will indeed force all to unify under a false outward, external unification, as seen in Revelation 13:

    Revelation 13:12  And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

    Revelation 13:15  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed

    ... and that we should avoid that 'union' at all costs, even at the peril of life?

  • I have been reminded recently how beautiful it is when God's people follow the Spirit and work with each other.

  • Nice Posting! Please just post things in one place. I removed the copy of this posted as a Bible Study.
