The Lord’s Prayer in the garden was that His children would be united. Except for the few, most believers in America are not united in the way the Lord talked about. In Christ, with His Word and Spirit we have overcoming life-changing power, and Satan and his evil cohorts know this. They know that as long as the church in America can not agree they will not use their power.
I read an article last week that explains this. It is written by a secular writer, and he said, “Most Christians in America say they believe the Bible and yet they do not read it on their own each day. What they know of the Bible is taught to them.” Could this be the reason why we are not united the way we should be? To have knowledge of the Word but not the wisdom of the Holy Spirit is like having all you need to do something great but not understanding what to do and when to do it. Wisdom is knowing what to do with knowledge and all that God has given us. Matthew 13:18-23
Matthew 13:13 “For they look, but they don’t really see. They hear, but they don’t really listen or understand.”
Jesus’s prayer will be answered! The question is, will we unite on our own, or will we be united because of persecution? I believe it will be the later, with our God-given rights being removed slowly by progressive thinkers of today. As long as these progressive thinkers are in leadership, they will continue to replace the Word with “political correctness,” and persecute anyone who opposes them.
A united church of truth and Spirit is very powerful, they will know when someone is leading the people wrong, and will not be afraid to confront them and unite in prayer for them; that the disobedient would turn to the wisdom of the righteous.
We need to not be the silent majority, but the united majority!
