I started off my week sicker than someone just bit by a rattlesnake and barely able to lift my head, but by yesterday was feeling fine and today I feel even better. Yesterday I met with a movie producer and an Anglican bishop who had traveled here from Italy after just meeting with Pope Francis in the Vatican to discuss ways to get the body of Christ to agree where we can agree and work together to accomplish something near and dear to my heart, preaching the Gospel all over the world, helping the poor, serving prisoners, and lifting up the downtrodden.
We met via Skype with another gentleman in Asia, (exact name of country withheld because his life is in constant danger). He is very influential there with organizing their rapidly increasing Pentecostal movement and he offered sage advice of how he achieved such success. Then we had another call with a Bishop in England that has united some 3 million people of varying denominations in 13 countries in Africa and Europe.
It was a Spirit filled time together and one not without demonic attack. When we were talking to the gentleman from Asia every time he tried to quote Scripture our connection would freeze. Those were the only times that we had connection problems during the entire 1 hour conference with him and we had none during the call to England. It was so obvious it was comical and we all laughed every time it occurred.
Last night I got an encouraging report from my Pastor friend in Ghana who has agreed to organize all of Ghana Africa for the Jesus Alliance, (something that he has no idea how he will accomplish, but is fully trusting in God to provide a way – He has begun with prayer and trust me his prayers are powerful).
God is working toward uniting the body of Christ all over the world. It is amazing to me how many people have received the exact same vision from God that I have received and are actively working towards uniting the remnant of “true believers” in Jesus Christ all over the world. Every day is like Christmas to me as I receive a new and interesting gift from God in the form of befriending yet another believer somewhere in the world who loves Christ with all of their heart and is trying to fulfill His plan and fulfill the Great Commission. I believe this combined effort will result in perhaps our last Great Awakening prior to Christ’s return for His church.
For you naysayers, no, this is not an Antichrist movement, or a one world religion unification effort. We are not starting a new church or denomination, nor is anyone proposing that anyone leave their denomination. We are not proposing “uniformity” in the way we worship. We are proposing “unity” in Christ of all true believers, (those who believe that Jesus is the living Son of God and that justification comes only through faith and grace through what Jesus accomplished on the cross and not by works). The purpose of unity is that we work together as one body just as Scripture commands, and to preach the Gospel all over the world and share the love and good news of Christ. Together we will accomplish much more than individually. The Bible states that and I believe it.
It is so-o-o-o exciting to be a part of something so much bigger than me. I hope you will join us. Sign up at: www.ThejesusAlliance.org – It doesn’t cost a penny and will take less than 30 seconds…
Have a great weekend and come to Honey Lake Church this Sunday. Remember I will be sharing my testimony at the services this Sunday and I hope you will bring someone who needs to hear this message of hope. The service begins at 11:00 a.m. – Sunday school begins at 9:30 across the street. If you don’t go to Honey Lake, go somewhere and pray for this country and this world.
From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
1 Cor. 1:10
I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.
1 Cor. 12:12
The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body – whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free – and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
