They that agree in one accord have the power to build.
Togetherness, being of the same mind, speaking the same language, is the key to creating greatness.
There is power in unity, and we see this in Genesis 11.
The Tower of Babel.
Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.
And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.
Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar.
And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”
But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.
And the Lord said, “Indeed the people areone and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.
Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.
The sons of men wished to create their own city their own tower, a tower that reached up to heaven.
A strong, and high tower.
They wished to build that which already existed The Kingdom of God.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
The righteous run to it and are safe.
The enemy always tries to imitate the goodness of God, and the enemy has been doing so since the beginning of time but it never is real it’s just that an imitation, a counterfeit.
The enemy tries but how many of us know that we have a God who never ever fails!
Every high thing that exalts itself above The Name of The Lord must come down!
It was wrong for the sons of men to try to rebuild what already existed.
However, this was a prophetic sign of what was to come, to bring down The Kingdom of Heaven to earth.
They wished to come together to build a tower, a city that reached to the heavens.
They wished to reach God, they wished to reach His glory.
The sin of Adam and Eve is what caused them to be casted out of the presence of God, and now here comes a united people whom wish to build so that they can inhabit the presence of God, so that they could dwell in His Kingdom.
There is a time for everything, this was to surely come to pass, but not in this way and time, and that is why God The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit had to come down from heaven to destroy what had been built.
This scripture shows how much we can build if only we come together in one accord, however prophecy first
had to be fulfilled.
And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”
You see the enemy tried to bypass this prophecy through the sons of men because he knew that a time would come when Jesus, the Son of God would come down from heaven to earth and eradicate sin.
Sin is what casted us out from the presence of God, and Jesus paid the price so that we would dwell in His Kingdom, His presence again.
Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, “If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.”
The enemy always tries to to tempt us to finding a shortcut, an alternative over the will of God.
Do not be fooled, it may look easy it may look like the real deal but it’s not.
Wait on The Lord, and no matter how hard it is learn to trust Him no matter how difficult the situation may be.
Amen thank You Lord.❤️️🙏
But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation?
And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong.”
Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
Before God sent His Son to come down from Heaven to earth the children of God set up altars of worship, and dedication to God.
Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him.
And he moved from there to the mountain east of Bethel, and he pitched his tent withBethel on the west and Ai on the east; there he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.
God had established His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob there was a whole lot of building.
Building the ark of The Lord, building the temple of The Lord, the rebuilding of the temple of The Lord, and later the establishment of the church that is when prophesy was fulfilled.
Jesus had bruised the heel of satan.
Since days of old there has been a prophetic process of Rebuilding the Temple of Praise through scripture.
The Ark of The Lord.
“And Bezalel and Aholiab, and every gifted artisan in whom the Lord has put wisdom and understanding, to know how to do all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, shall do according to all that the Lord has commanded.”
Then Moses called Bezalel and Aholiab, and every gifted artisan in whose heart the Lord had put wisdom, everyone whose heart was stirred, to come and do the work.
Then Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood; two and a half cubits was its length, a cubit and a half its width, and a cubit and a half its height.
The Lord chose gifted people to build an ark, a sanctuary in which He could dwell amongst His people.
During this time God dwelled amongst them, but He did not dwell inside of them.
He chose whom He want to speak through to prophesy to His people, but it was only Moses that He had fellowship with.
Moses was a friend of God, he was a friend of God because he had fellowship with God.
Building The Temple of The Lord.
Then Solomon spoke:
“The Lord said He would dwell in the dark cloud. 1 Kings 8:12
I have surely built You an exalted house,
And a place for You to dwell in forever.”
Then the king turned around and blessed the whole assembly of Israel, while all the assembly of Israel was standing.
And he said: “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, who spoke with His mouth to my father David, and with His hand has fulfilled it, saying,
‘Since the day that I brought My people Israel out of Egypt, I have chosen no city from any tribe of Israel in which to build a house, that My name might be there; but I chose David to be over My people Israel.’
Now it was in the heart of my father David to build a temple for the name of the LordGod of Israel.
But the Lord said to my father David, ‘Whereas it was in your heart to build a temple for My name, you did well that it was in your heart.
Nevertheless you shall not build the temple, but your son who will come from your body, he shall build the temple for My name.’
So the Lord has fulfilled His word which He spoke; and I have filled the position of my father David, and sit on the throne of Israel, as the Lord promised; and I have built a temple for the name of the LordGod of Israel.
And there I have made a place for the ark, in which isthe covenant of the Lord which He made with our fathers, when He brought them out of the land of Egypt.”
Just like the ark, the sanctuary of God described to us in Exodus.
The Lord dwelled amongst His people, but He did not dwell inside of them.
This temple of praise was a place where The Lord dwelt.
David described as a man after God’s own heart, was a true worshipper.
He was a true worshipper because he worshipped God in Spirit and in Truth, he loved God, he trusted and obeyed God, he was a man of faith, he reverenced the presence of God, he feared God, he honoured and blessed God, and he understood true repentance.
Such a man God regarded as after His own heart.
God loves true worshippers.
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Lord prepare me to be a Sanctuary.
Pure and Holy.
Tried and True.
I’ll be a Living.
We all have been called to worship God.
Our worship is a living sacrifice to Jesus, The King of kings.
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Rebuilding The Temple of Praise
Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the descendants of the captivity were building the temple of the Lord God of Israel,
they came to Zerubbabel and the heads of the fathers’ houses, and said to them, “Let us build with you, for we seek your God as you do; and we have sacrificed to Him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assyria, who brought us here.”
But Zerubbabel and Jeshua and the rest of the heads of the fathers’ houses of Israel said to them, “You may do nothing with us to build a house for our God; but we alone will build to the Lord God of Israel, as King Cyrus the king of Persia has commanded us.”
Then the people of the land tried to discourage the people of Judah. They troubled them in building,
and hired counselors against them to frustrate their purpose all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.
Then the prophet Haggai and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophets, prophesied to the Jews who were in Judah and Jerusalem, in the name of the God of Israel, who was over them.
So Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak rose up and began to build the house of God which is in Jerusalem; and the prophets of God were with them, helping them.
And thus they returned us an answer, saying: “We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and we are rebuilding the temple that was built many years ago, which a great king of Israel built and completed.
But because our fathers provoked the God of heaven to wrath, He gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this temple and carried the people away to Babylon.
However, in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, King Cyrus issued a decree to build this house of God.
There came a time whereby the children of God continuously turned their backs on The Lord.
The rebellion of the Israelites sent them back into exile.
The Israelites had gone being slaves in Egypt, to being free in their promised land, only to end up to being in exile in Babylon.
Their constant disobedience caused them to be held captive in a strange land, and the place where God dwelt was destroyed.
No longer did The Lord dwell amongst them, though he spoke through prophets He would only dwell amongst them again one the temple was restored.
You see sin has the power to destroy, to distract, to discourage you.
Do not allow the enemy to trap you, the aim of satan is to deter you from where The Lord wants
If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”
Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,
The Church, The Body of Christ.
For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,
so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
The church is us, the children of God whom make up the body of Christ.
There are many different members of the body but we must all function in one accord, giving glory to The Lord always.
We have become the adopted sons of God.The Blood of Jesus is the new covenant, we have been redeemed restored by The Blood of The Lamb.
Through Jesus Christ we have been rebuilt, He has washed away our sins and set us free.
We have become heirs of salvation, we have become the righteousness of God, we have become a royal priesthood.
This is the prophecy that satan never wanted to come to pass.
May times satan tried to destroy what God has built, but as always God forever overcomes the works of the devil.
He has given us victory.
We are born of His Spirit, we are created in His image and likeness.
Therefore, we posses the same power, gifts, and authority of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is love.
The old has become new.
We walk according to the new law.
We are under grace, and His great mercy.
He forgives us of our sins when we repent, and He keeps no records of wrongs.
There is now no more condemnation, once we repent He forgives us of our sins.
He is no longer restricted to the ark, the temple, to the four walls of a church building, no!
God Lives In Us.
He dwells within us and no longer amongst us.
That is why we must habitually walk in the ways of The Lord, we must strive for purity.
He fellowships with us.
He speaks to us.
He reveals Himself to us.
Now we can freely enter into His presence, now we can see His glory.
He has given His children the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is a gift to the children of God.
The Holy Spirit leads and guides us, and empowers us to fulfil that which The Lord has called us to do.
We are a people of purpose.
God dwells in heaven for He is holy, but through us the children of God His Kingdom has been established on earth.
That is why He sent down His Son from heaven to earth, to establish His Kingdom.
Through us He will bring salvation to many.
We must spread the good news, preach love, preach the truth for the truth is what will free those from the bondage of sin.
Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
The Last Days Church, His Kingdom Established.
John, to the seven churches which are in Asia:
Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, Revelation 1:4
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. Revelation 1:5
and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Revelation 1:6
Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.Revelation 1:7
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”Revelation 1:8
We are in the last days. We only have to look at the mess that is going on this world to know that we are in the last days. The world is full of evil just like that of Sodom and Gommorah, and of the days of Noah we are pretty close to the end. The Lord is displeased not only with the world but with the church. The church has compromised the Truth and God is not pleased.
Looking at the current state of the body of Christ, all members of His body are not functioning in one accord. Now the church is in a state presented to us to us in the prophetic last book of Revelation. There are seven different descriptions given to us of the end time church in Revelation chapter two to three.
The seven churches are:
The Loveless Church
The Persecuted Church
The Compromising Church
The Corrupt Church
The Dead Church
The Faithful Church
The Lukewarm Church
This is the current state of the church.
We must repent, notice that there is only one positive description of the church that being the faithful church.
This means that there are many few churches that are serving the Lord faithfully, preaching the good news faithfully, walking in righteousness faithful.
Members of the body of Christ we must be careful, we must be fearful of God, we must be watch full, we must be prayerful, and we must serve Him diligently.
For no one knows the time nor the hour of the coming of our Lord.
We must not conform to the ways of this world.
We must not conform our worship, we must not conform our praise, we must not make a mockery of The Name of The Lord.
We must be true worshipers.
Worshipers that worship in Spirit and in Truth, not in the flesh and in lies that is of the world.
That is what the body of Christ is doing to day, they claim they want to mix the world with the gospel to reach the world.
Jesus never compromised Truth, He preached to the world but he never mixed the ways of the world with The Truth.
Be careful children of God, members of the body of Christ have begun to use false doctrine.
Watch and pray and become very sensitive and discerning in Spirit.
Remember it is The Lord who convicts us, we cannot save others only Jesus can do that.
We must stand for righteousness and be bold.
Do not compromise The Word of God, whenever you preach or teach make sure it is based on The Word of God and not your own.
In these last days God will bring forth His judgement.
Do not compromise The Word of God so that you can gain fame or keep your ‘best givers’.
The Lord is not pleased and He will punish those that continue to compromise God’s Word without repentance.
He has promised us eternal life, that which the enemy stole from us through sin has been restored by The Precious Blood of The Lamb.
If we obey Him, repent, and serve Him, then we will dwell in His Kingdom forever again as God intended since the beginning of time.
The beauty of His Kingdom is that we can continually worship Him.
All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
Who art in Heaven.
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our Daily Bread, and forgive us our trespasses.
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is The Kingdom, the Power and Glory, forever and ever.
Lord keep me day by day.
In a pure and perfect way.
I want to live, I want to live on.
In a building not made by hand.❤️🙏
I’m just a stranger here.
Travelling through this barren land.
Lord I know there’s a building, a building somewhere.
It’s a building not made by hand. ❤️🙏
Lord keep my body strong.
So that I can do no wrong.
Give me grace just to run, this Christian race.
To a building not made by hand. ❤️ 🙏
For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 Corinthians 5:1
For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven,
2 Corinthians 5:2
So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.
2 Corinthians 5:6
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7
We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
2 Corinthians 5:8
Oh Lord Rebuild the Temple of Praise.
