Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments. (Ps 133:1-2)
As a new believer, our LORD called me to begin to write a book. And just like Sarah before me (Gen 18:12), I laughed understanding that I did not have it in me fulfill His command. However, stepping out in faith I began to write. As the book began to take shape I realized that the LORD was calling His church to unity. For 20 years, I have been called to proclaim to the Christian church, the power and the anointing that would ONLY be available when the church comes together in unity. I also began to warn on the dangers of Christian disunity. I have recorded the five most important podcast messages and posted them on our website The Christian Unity Movement.com.
However, while I assumed that the message only applied to spiritual unity, I am coming to understand that this is an all encompassing message that also includes denominational, racial and even political unity. Most American Christians are doctrinally ignorant of the fact that most (if not all) of the social, moral and event political problems that we are facing in this once great nation is due to the Deuteronomy 28 curse that was brought upon this nation when our government began politically disregarding His Commandments and His laws.
Consider the following encounter that I had with another believer. When attempting to engage him about the spiritual direction that our nation has taken since the early 1960’s, he stated that “I do not have time for this right now… I am dealing with the illegal immigration problem.” I advised him that our political problems are just symptomatic of our spiritual condition. One of the curses that were pronounced upon a nation for disregarding His commandments were “A nation whom you have not known shall eat the fruit of your land and the produce of your labor.” (Deut 28:33). See our Video HERE.
The Christian church in America is a sleeping giant. With 70% of American self-identifying as Christians, if this nation falls to the wayside like every other nation before us, the blame can be placed upon the Christian church that allowed itself to not submit to our LORD’s final prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane the “We would be one.” God is about to pour out the new wine. However the church needs to understand that He will not be using old wines skins.
America is a deeply troubled and divided nation. And the only hope that we have to save our American Republic is if the Christian church comes together in unity and once again become the head and not the tail. The head speaks of leadership and the church has abdicated the political leadership of this nation to those who only seek to advance their only agendas and not the sovereign will of God. As our political leaders bicker over issues that they have no solutions for, the American people need to understand that America does not need another politician. We need to elect political leaders that understand the divine order to the universe. Leaders who understand that more repressive laws and more money will NEVER solve America’s national ills. America needs a David! We need a leader who will serve as both a king and a priest. Who will, like David, before him, brought the nation to unity, drive out the enemies. The pattern is before us. Unifying the body of Christ and driving out our enemies are the two prerequisites before the glory of God will once again fall upon on us as nation.
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” ― Samuel Adams
