One day recently I was whining to Yahweh. The whine du jour was related to how tired I was of fighting. I was wondering if the next level of humanity, for those born of God who would move on into the next epic thing Yahweh does after producing a Bride for Jesus, would just be more fighting. I was walking across a parking lot while “praying.” Before I got to the other side, I got a text. From a dear and trusted friend. It said, simply, “You were born to fight.”
There you go. I remembered that He called Himself Yahweh Sabaoth – Commander of Armies – over 200 times in the Book. He called Himself Yahweh-other things (like Jireh) maybe 30 times altogether. OK. We are here to war.
The greater the battle you are going to enter, the greater the power of unity will be against you. The greater the battle, the more unity you will need with you in order to prevail.
Unity = Power. It is not good or evil. Good can exact as much power with it as evil can.
If you are going to cast a demon out of someone who doesn’t want to be possessed, you and a friend have the demon cornered. Agree with the Spirit of God in you and you have the demon outnumbered. Your authority in the earth as a son or daughter of Adam is greater than any demon, actually. Two can just do it easier.
If you are going to deal with a witch, the power of unity is at work against you. A human agreeing with a demon. When several witches and several demons have gathered to assault you or your city, you should gather some unity before confronting it unless Yahweh has given you some special assignment that you don’t need the rest of the Body for. (Unlikely…)
If you are planning to confront a principality, or world power, or a territorial spirit, you need lots of unity. The prince that is ruling is in a position to rule because the humans in the area are giving him power by unifying in lending him their authority. Examples are Sedona, Las Vegas, DC, San Francisco, New York City. The agreement among the people that is in agreement with the ruling spirit’s nature is empowering the spirit to rule, and creates an area where the spirit’s brand of evil is accepted or exalted.
As darkness increases, light will increase more, if I am reading Isaiah 60 correctly. Some of the greatness of our light will only be found in unity. Some of the works we are called to are only possible when we learn to discern the presence of Jesus in each other and agree with Him and His ways.
1 Corinthians 12:31 says that chapter 13 is the way the unity Paul wrote about in chapters 10 – 12 & 14 is possible. Be washed away in that deep water.
