Beloved today we thank God for the grace given to us to hear from Him again. Today’s message is very important to every irrespective of where you find yourself. Everybody is life want to experience growth, progress, peace and unity but not everybody are willing to pay the prize tag.
Today’s message is title “The Power of Unity”
Our text is taken from Act 2:1-8 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.
And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language.
Then they were all amazed and marvelled, saying to one another, "Look, are not all these who speak Galileans?
And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born?(NKJV)
Beloved what happens in Pentecost is the power of unity; it was their togetherness that makes the Holy Spirit to come down not their division. After Christ have finished His work and before leaving He told them to tarry in Jerusalem unit the gift form father promise, which He has spoken about (Act 1:4 “And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me”). This is what they need in their ministry, without this gift from above they cannot make progress in life (physically and spiritually) so for them to get this gift the Father has promise them they must be together, do things in common, praying together until the promise comes.
Beloved do you know that this togetherness was bound with unity and love that is why the Father promise comes down. And every man and woman in that place experience the gift because of their unity, despite they came from different background and family, but they where together.
Their unity brings more results in Act 2:42-47 “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.
Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common,
and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,
praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved”. Because of this unity God begin do more miracles in their midst, there was testimonies happening among them and the Lord by Himself add more soul to them daily.
Brothers and sisters can you see what unity can do, me and you know that today’s Christianity is full of division and political parties, tribalism has dominate the Christian communities, racism in common practice. But was this the Apostle Doctrine?
It is in today’s church that a member will say I don’t like the pastor at all, they should change him/her because is not from the same tribe. In a group of 3 persons someone will still be saying I don’t like what they are doing there, in today’s church the pastorates and ministers are not together in the same spirit, even by mere looking at they you could see that they are not together that there is division, and they are expecting Holy Spirit to move in their midst. In today’s church the pastor is creating a cabal in, it is in today’s church that pastors are fully involve in tribalism, because you don’t speak the same language with him/her he/she would like you. Beloved the dirtiest polities are found in today’s church not in the world any more, there are so many political parties in the church.
However, the must painfully thing is this; these are the people that want to experience massive testimonies, growth and miracles and they are serious practicing division.
You may say that I don’t involve in all these things I am saying; what about your home, husband have refuse to love him wife because of a particular mistakes of years back and this same family are praying for blessings, children when hatred has dominate their heart.
