The church needs to look inwards and repent without looking at the outside wall.
The happenings in the church is a true representation of the larger community where God has planted us. If we repent, turn from our wickedness, show fruit of repentance, then God will visit us with His loving favor and turn His wrath from us, the Church – 2 Chronicles 7:14
Where our need for repentance shows up first is how we relate with others within the Christian faith who we don’t necessarily agree with. Our point of agreement should be on Christ alone and Him crucified and spreading the fragrance of His love to a dying and decaying world in PERFECT love.
Then, we can pray, to restore divine order and realignment to divine council over His Church and the nation where He has planted us as salt and light.
When I say church, I am not looking at denominations or fellowship, I am looking at and referring to ALL who have covenanted with Him through the Lord Jesus Christ.
I pulled down walls of denominations and doctrines that are not Christ centered and every and all human tradition that does not pan out or lead to Christ, as central hub of the doctrine in Jesus name, Amen.
Essentially, the key words I hear in the realm of the spirit is “Revival and Unity” in the body of Christ and “Perfection”
Walk habitually before me and be thou perfect! Genesis 17:1
Concerning unity and wrong doctrinal foundation of some of the churches around us. How do we handle that?
Concerning unity and doctrinal issues, the Lord gave me some clues on how to address them.. or how the body of Christ should address them.
First off, the Lord showed an illustration in a dream. In this dream, there was a very massive building with different rooms. Everybody was busy cleaning up their rooms, sweeping out their rooms into the walkway within the building. The dirt in the house was so much and crowded everywhere in this building that it made the clean room look very dirty too.
As people who live in these rooms walk in, they were stepping on these dirty walkways and carrying the dirt into their rooms, some of which are clean and some of which are dirty ab initio
I saw this and I contemplated hiring cleaners from those cleaning the room to clean the outside walkway at least once every Saturday. But these cleaners were busy with their assignment.
Then in this building, I saw a woman come out of the shower looking very sober, and complaining that God’s children were dying. I knew within me that it was because God’s judgement was upon the church for keeping His house dirty. Not just individual houses but the communal area which is also His church and sinners outside who are also His children for whom He died to save. Our sin pollutes our environment. Other Christians and unbelievers who do not yet know Christ, waiting on the sidelines.
We are all busy, busy, busy cleaning ourselves up and living the outside dirty. Not realizing that when one is polluted, all are polluted. I don’t mean same denominations but those who have covenant with Jesus Christ.
I stepped out of the building and went out to an agency outside the building in a foreign land to bring in cleaners and pay them. They said before they can come clean up, they will have to do an assessment of the dirty area and then they will determine what it will cost and the frequency of cleanup exercise to keep the place always tidy and I woke up from this dream.
Interpretation of the dream, especially, the area of cleanup exercise is this:
Get leaders, to humble themselves before the Lord, start once a week, stay in fasting,, humbling yourself before Him. Asking that The Holy Spirit will x-ray me, not them. Once the Holy Spirit start showing these areas we as leaders have missed the mark, and we take steps worthy of Repentance, then He will heal the nations. How frequent this cleanup will happen will depend on initial meetings. There should be no agenda. Just silence and asking God to do a quick work in us, revealing areas we have missed it, ask for forgiveness, repent and turn. This leaders will go back into their local Assemblies and repeat the same with their members. This process should never stop. If we stop, the enemy will sow seeds again and we will return back to where we started. We should start with self and not others.
for others, the Lord said, “Engage and correct in rebuke, in Prayers and in love. If they refuse, that will serve as judgement against them.”
Some of these errors are from bad teaching, bad mentors who don’t have a foundation in Christ.
These people belong to Christ. We take them as a battlefield to engage and intercede, God opening their eyes to the need for change and into the image and likeness of His Son.
We ourselves have very terrible soulish, deep mind level corruption , serious hatred and disunity even in the so called custodians of the truth within the same church. God is out for perfection.
The fact of the matter is that they are leaders, if we don’t pray and engage with them to transform, so many will be polluted as well.
Too much gossip not based on truth are making rounds. Until we engage to gain knowledge, we don’t know the truth. It is the truth that sets us free and sets them free.
So, as we engage, we should not go from the position of judgemental mindset for that pollutes. But if we go from the position of love, then God can trust us to see the issues in our lives and in their lives and pray our hearts out for genuine change.
The enemy is using this judgmental spirit and division to cause havoc in the soul of those He died to deliver. That was why Jesus prayed about unity in John 17. Because He understood that our disunity undermines our message to the lost. We can see the examples of Peter and Paul. Do they always agree, even on doctrinal issues? Of course not. Peter said some of the things revealed to Paul were really difficult and many are misunderstanding them.
God has distributed the gifts all across the body in those with doctrinal issues and those that don’t. If we don’t work together, the body suffers, the message of reaching the world get undermined and the devil wins again and so his effort to see that we are not together, fighting from within both from those who think they have everything right and does that don’t!
This requires the wisdom of God to see through and to take a stand that says, those are my brothers, precious souls for whom Christ died to redeem. If we are not united, the nations can never be.
For Scriptures and the needs for a continuous gathering of leaders once a week across different denominations, with no agenda but just sitting before the Lord in dust and ashes, in humility of heart, asking Him to search us so that we can continually repent and take action worthy of repentance then He will hear and forgive and restore.
This should be a continuous exercise. Not only when things are going south (wrong) but all the time to keep a clean house continually, then the hand of the Lord will be lifted in judgement and replaced with the hand of loving favors in Jesus name, Amen.
Guiding scriptures for need for unity and revival – reflect and meditate on these scriptures. Embedded in them are highlights of the items I discussed above:
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
12 Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored].
13 Rend your hearts and not your garments and return to the Lord, your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness; and He revokes His sentence of evil [when His conditions are met].
14 Who knows but what He will turn, revoke your sentence [of evil], and leave a blessing behind Him [giving you the means with which to serve Him], even a cereal or meal offering and a drink offering for the Lord, your God?
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion; set apart a fast [a day of restraint and humility]; call a solemn assembly.
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation; assemble the elderly people, gather the children and the nursing infants; let the bridegroom [who is legally exempt from attending] go forth from his chamber and the bride out of her closet. [None is exempt from the humiliation.]
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar; and let them say, Have pity and spare Your people, O Lord, and give not Your heritage to reproach, that the [heathen] nations should rule over them or use a byword against them. Why should they say among the peoples, Where is their God?
18 Then was the Lord jealous for His land and had pity on His people.
19 Yes, the Lord answered and said to His people, Behold, I am sending you grain and juice [of the grape] and oil, and you shall be satisfied with them; and I will no more make you a reproach among the [heathen] nations.
20 But I will remove far off from you the northern [destroyer’s] army and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, with its front toward the eastern [Dead] Sea and with its rear toward the western [Mediterranean] Sea. And its stench shall come up [like that of a decaying mass of locusts, a symbol and forecast of the fate of the northern army in the final day of the Lord], and its foul odor shall come up, because [a]He has done great things [the Lord will have destroyed the invaders]!
21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things!
22 Be not afraid, you wild beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness have sprung up and are green; the tree bears its fruit, and the fig tree and the vine yield their [full] strength.
23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, as before.
24 And the [threshing] floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with juice [of the grape] and oil.
25 And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten—the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you.
26 And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame.
27 And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame.
28 And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.
29 Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit.
30 And I will show signs and wonders in the heavens, and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.
32 And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved, for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the remnant [of survivors] shall be those whom the Lord calls.
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
6 Brethren, if any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also.
2 Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and [a]troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete [b]what is lacking [in your obedience to it].
John 17:21-23King James Version
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.
Ephesians 4:1-16Amplified Bible
Unity of the Spirit
4 So I, the prisoner for the Lord, appeal to you to live a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called [that is, to live a life that exhibits godly character, moral courage, personal integrity, and mature behavior—a life that expresses gratitude to God for your salvation], 2 with all humility [forsaking self-righteousness], and gentleness [maintaining self-control], with patience, bearing with one another [a]in [unselfish] love. 3 Make every effort to keep the oneness of the Spirit in the bond of peace [each individual working together to make the whole successful]. 4 There is one body [of believers] and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when called [to salvation]— 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of us all who is [sovereign] over all and [working] through all and [living] in all.
7 Yet grace [God’s undeserved favor] was given to each one of us [not indiscriminately, but in different ways] in proportion to the measure of Christ’s [rich and abundant] gift. 8 Therefore it says,
“When He ascended on high,
He led captivity captive,
And He bestowed gifts on men.”
9 (Now this expression, “He ascended,” what does it mean except that He also had previously descended [from the heights of heaven] into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is the very same as He who also has ascended high above all the heavens, that He [His presence] might fill all things [that is, the whole universe]). 11 And [His gifts to the church were varied and] He Himself appointed some as apostles [special messengers, representatives], some as prophets [who speak a new message from God to the people], some as evangelists [who spread the good news of salvation], and some as pastors and teachers [to shepherd and guide and instruct], 12 [and He did this] to fully equip and perfect the saints (God’s people) for works of service, to build up the body of Christ [the church]; 13 until we all reach oneness in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, [growing spiritually] to become a mature believer, reaching to the measure of the fullness of Christ [manifesting His spiritual completeness and exercising our spiritual gifts in unity]. 14 So that we are no longer children [spiritually immature], tossed back and forth [like ships on a stormy sea] and carried about by every wind of [shifting] doctrine, by the cunning and trickery of [unscrupulous] men, by the deceitful scheming of people ready to do anything [for personal profit]. 15 But speaking the truth in love [in all things—both our speech and our lives expressing His truth], let us grow up in all things into Him [following His example] who is the Head—Christ. 16 From Him the whole body [the church, in all its various parts], joined and knitted firmly together by what every joint supplies, when each part is working properly, causes the body to grow and mature, building itself up [b]in [unselfish] love.
Whoever has ears, hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches in Jesus name, Amen
