I Need You!!!!

Matthew 18:18-20

God is omniscient. This simply means that He knows everything about everything, because He is the source of everything. In the book of Gen. 2:18 the Bible says “And the Lord God said, It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” God the creator of all here became God the psychologist, for He said it is not good that man should be alone, not naturally, mentally or physically. Then He became God the anastigologist and caused a deep sleep to come upon Adam. Then He became God the surgeon and performed a operation on Adam and took a rib from his side. Then God became again the master builder and made woman from the bone of his bone. Then God became a preacher and said dearly beloved, be fruitful and multiply. All this was done so man wouldn’t be alone. In other words He was establishing unity, for He said the two shall become one, UNITY.

Nothing in this life works without unity. Your car, regardless of how much you prayed for it, works because of unity. If there was no unity between the key and the ignition, the ignition and the starter, the starter and the engine, the car would not work. If any of these components were not in unity with the rest of them your car would not work. The Ohio State Football team is the national champions because of unity. Everything works because of unity. Your relationships work because of unity. The church works because of unity. The Bible says, “ A house divided will fall” why, because there is no unity. The word unity means “ONENESS”. In order for unity to exist there needs to be oneness. Like the 3 musketeers said “One for all and all for one. There must be unity for united we stand but divided we fall.

We need unity now more than ever before for we are living in what the Bible calls perilous times. Unlike any other time before, these are truly the most wicked, sin infested, and ungodly of times. People’s conscience is as though it has been seared with a hot iron. Wrong is being called right and right is being called wrong. Morality and decency are words that now must be looked up in a dictionary instead of portrayed by society. The minds of people have become so distorted from the truth that the more perverse, more degrading, and the unlike God something is the more we like it. We have become a people that have developed the concept that no matter the consequences, if the Eros (erotic nature) of us is satisfied then that’s good enough. This mentality is not limited to the worldly system and the sinner, but is also the feeling of some church folk. they won’t come to Sunday school, can’t find them for Bible Class, Don’t even realize that there is a Prayer Band, but put on a concert, have a gospel fest and good God almighty they beat you to the church. Why cause it satisfying to the Eros.

The immorality of sin isn’t trying to creep into the church anymore, for it has so inundated itself within the church that we now have homosexuals sitting in the pulpit telling people that as long as you just have love that’s all you need. They try to use the philosophy that you never know whom you shall fall in love with as a means to justify the sin they are doing.

It’s a sad shame but before the church can truly be effective in fighting sin in the world, we the church has to come together and fight the sin that’s in the church. This is not the time for denominational separation; this is not the time for racial disunity among the children of God, for there is neither Greek, nor Jew, Male nor Female, Bond, nor Free, Black nor White in the body of Christ. This is not the time for spiritual soloism. This is time however for the church, those that are called by His name according to His purpose to get on one accord and begin to tear the devil’s kingdom down. Understand that in order to do that we are going to have to come together, there’s got to be unity, because none of us can do it by ourselves. We must have unity, for where there is unity there is strength.

There is a song by Hezekiah Walker that’s says, “I need you to survive.” The words to the song are “I need you, you need me, we’re all a part of God’s body. Stand with me agree with me we’re all a part of God’s body. It is His will that every need be supplied. You are important to me I need you to survive. I pray for you, you pray for me. I love you I need you to survive. I won’t harm you with words from my mouth, I love you, I need you to survive.”
