When we were young and had not much in regard to material things, our imagination was one of the greatest gift we possessed, and still is!

 

When we were young and had not much in regard to material things, our imagination was one of the greatest gift we possessed, and still is!

From doctors to lawyers, from law men to bad men and the lists goes on.
Such imagination carries itself into careers of being role play actors and writers where together they can take us back to our childhood days and other worlds.

The problem with imagination is that the word of God denotes that mankind’s imagination is “continually evil”!

Genesis 6:5-6

"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart."

Notice it comes from out of the heart or center of ones spirit.

Yet this is one of the greatest traits of us being created in God’s image. See the irony? Made in His image from His imagination; Elohiym-God the Creator, the creator that is still canvassing His work in you and me and in the generations of the lives of humans. Yet Christ’s proclaims our concern for thought is but for today and the evil thereof [Matt 6:34].

There is an event in the Holy Bible that brings some light to the greatness of Unity in the congregation, which will bring God into the very company of mankind.

The story comes from Genesis 11:1-6
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of 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.
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do”


Two great things are reveled here 1]that Unity brings God on the scene, and 2]nothing is held back from what we imagined to do. God breaks up this power of Unity in Genesis by scattering the children of men because their imagination was not God’s but their own.

Now how much more will God’s blessing come upon us as we come into the Unity of Imagination with God’s vision? Will anything be held back? I quote again “nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do”, does “nothing” mean nothing! Yes! For The L:ord has declared it.

When Ezekiel was caught up into the heavens. The wheel within the wheel empowered by the four creatures started carrying his spirit up into the heavens before the throne room of God.

Does the praise of worship of God enter us into the presence of His Holy Spirit that is within us? God’s word states that He inhabits the praises of Israel [His Spiritual Children] By the name of Christ that causes our spirit-self to ascend with the help of angelic forces that surround us that gather to worshiper’s aid.

Now if each that brings to the body what God has deposited in their spirit by vision or word, “flowing together” with one purpose [or total working vision], one common language [or speech], that stems from God’s Holy Spirit confirmed by His Holy Word, how much more will God show up bringing blessings as His Kingdom’s will being done on the earth.

John 5:19
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.


John 8:28
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.



Christ stated Mark 9:23 “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”

Interesting to me that a common phrase to pretending as a child is to ”make believe” using our imagination; the word “believe” in the New Testament is translated …to give “credit” or to “entrust”. To entrust Christ with our life in unity of the body of the assembly is to empower His Holy Spirit to work freely among us and beyond the four walls of a building.

It is the very essence of revival as we come into the precepts and principles of His confirmed Holy Word like the people did at Babel not under the guide of vanity but under the cloud of witnesses raining His Spirit’s will in Unity creating a flood of glory and peace!

This is an aspect of what the Holy Spirit recorded threw the apostle Paul as he penned “each supplying their part”.

Chapter 4
He pleads for unity of the Spirit
1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
Eph 4:1-4 (KJV)


13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Eph 4:13-16 (KJV)

Psalm 133
Benefits from the harmony of believers
A Song of degrees of David.
1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion:
 
 for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
Psalm 133:1-3 (KJV)

I understand that Christ is taking of conversion in this verse… Mat 18:3 “And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” But maybe our spiritual power of “make believing” or “catching the vision” in unity of Christ’s Holy Spirit is the door of the Kingdom.

I know Jesus is the door! I wrote Christ’s Holy Spirit. Again a vision not generated out of self but rather one than comes to the body as they worship and praise together before God and His Holy Spirit imparting to the body the vision [or visions in agreement] and the word [or words in agreement]…each supplying their part.

Faith comes by hearing, hearing that of the Word of God. Revelation from God for God’s purpose, intent, and will.

Jesus told Peter:

“15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Matt 16:15-19 (KJV)


Revealed Faith has the Power of God upon it when it results in action. Imagine a congregation getting so caught up in the Holy Spirit declaring the Faith God has revealed to them, each supplying their part.

Last July on the telephone conference ministry there were several of us flowing together when suddenly a voice that sounded as if it were under running water delivered this word...

"My heart is steadfast, Oh God! My heart is steadfast. I will see and make know of it. I will take thee Oh Lord among new vision. I will see you among, for great is your Love, Vision to the heavens. His faithfulness reaches this passage. Be awesome Oh God! For it is the Lord who heals us: all the earth."

I have no doubt that this was the Angel of the Lord. The Conference was recorded.

With in a week many that were on the conference broke the Unity and went different ways, yet people were getting touched and healed. Of those that have remained still God moves, touches and heals blesses and encourages. Maybe one day the ones that broke the Unity and decided that they could not work out the differences will realize that the Unity of the Spirit and His Love is worth more than things that divide.

If God broke up the Unity of wicked imaginations, I can certainly believe that Satan would come against the Saint’s Unity.

Things that divide more-part, things that multiply- build up. Add to vs Take Away! Simple, huh?

Go and read John 15:1-17 for a contextual reference to these teachings, and be blessed my the most High God! To God be the Glory, Amen!
