Summary: Shows how Jesus will show up in agreement.
The Power of Agreement
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:18-19 (KJV)
1. There is power in agreement, unity and love. Jesus said ...Whatsoever ye shall bind... or paralyze ...on earth shall be bound in heaven.
The heaven He’s referring to is not the heaven where God resides. There isn’t anything where God resides that needs to be bound. There are three heavens in the Scripture. And this one refers to the atmospheric heaven around the earth. He said, Whatsoever you bind or paralyze on earth shall be bound in heaven, or the heavenlies, ...and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
in verse 20, Jesus makes this statement: For where two or three are gathered together in my name (the name of Jesus), there am I. The Greek text actually says, I am there to make good that which they agree on.
The power of agreement puts you in a position where God moves. Good things happen when we agree with one another, when we come in unity with one another, when we drop all of our personal issues and love one another. When we come into unity, we have the power to paralyze Satan and his acts. As the scripture points out, if you bind satanic activity in Jesus’ name on the earth, it’s going to be bound in the atmospheric heaven where demons reside.
Whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in the heavenlies. In this sense, the believer, the one who stands in the name of Jesus, is the one who determines ultimately what happens here on this planet.
So agreement, unity and love are the elements to comprise a health working relationship. Don’t hold what a few people do against a whole race. That just makes us further divided. Rather pray that the few be revealed. We have Christian brothers and sisters in every race. So it is time to set aside our differences these are the very things that keep us struggling to get to our destination, furthermore, are a roadblock that keeps us from one another each. No man is better than another man. Jesus died for every one of us (The World). He shed His blood which was the price for our redemption. As a result, every one of us can make heaven our home, and have peace and victory on the earth.
