Body of Christ – If You ARISE and SHINE, The GLORY of the LORD will RISE ON YOU

Body of Christ rise up!

Let the wolves know that you are not their “niche market,” you are the Bride of Christ the King of the Universe!

In 2013 arise and shine, for the glory of the Lord is Risen upon YOU, and the wealth of the Gentiles is YOURS.

Worshippers, Take Authority!

 

Isaiah 60

The Glory of Zion

60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

“Lift up your eyes and look about you:
All assemble and come to you;
your sons come from afar,
and your daughters are carried on the hip.
Then you will look and be radiant,
your heart will throb and swell with joy;
the wealth on the seas will be brought to you,
to you the riches of the nations will come.
Herds of camels will cover your land,
young camels of Midian and Ephah.
And all from Sheba will come,
bearing gold and incense
and proclaiming the praise of the Lord.
All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you,
the rams of Nebaioth will serve you;
they will be accepted as offerings on my altar,
and I will adorn my glorious temple.

“Who are these that fly along like clouds,
like doves to their nests?
Surely the islands look to me;
in the lead are the ships of Tarshish,[a]
bringing your children from afar,
with their silver and gold,
to the honor of the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel,
for he has endowed you with splendor.

10 “Foreigners will rebuild your walls,
and their kings will serve you.
Though in anger I struck you,
in favor I will show you compassion.
11 Your gates will always stand open,
they will never be shut, day or night,
so that people may bring you the wealth of the nations—
their kings led in triumphal procession.
12 For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish;
it will be utterly ruined.

Just a Little Bit of False Teaching Permeates the Whole Body – Just like a Yeast Infection

A Little Leaven Leavens the Whole Loaf

*[[Gal 5:8-9]] KJV* This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

False teaching permeates the whole Body if it is allowed to be taught verbally or by example without correction.

Persuasion:
Transliteration: peismonē Phonetic: pice-mon-ay’ Thayer Definition:

1. persuasion 2. treacherous or deceptive persuasion

*[[1Co 5:6-8]] KJV* Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

When false teaching is taught by example, such as fornication, malice, or wickedness – God has to start a whole new unleavened loaf of bread aka Body of Believers, that walk in the sincerity and truth of Christ. He can do this by purging the leaven aka yeast aka false teaching aka false example from the Body of believers. He can also send an apostle to recreate the Body and form them into Christ.

*[[Luk 12:1-3]] KJV* In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

One of the most important false teachings Jesus had to purge when He started out the Body of Christ was the leaven of the Pharisees – hypocrisy. They were actors in real life who thought they could say and do things in secret and portray something different in their outward appearance.

*[[Mat 16:12]] KJV* Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Leaven represents doctrine, and teaching by example.

Real Unity – One Mind on Jesus, One Mouth on Christ | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 6 –

Real Unity – One Mind on Jesus, One Mouth on Christ

As we prepare for the Call, one thing we need to pray about is Unity in the Church. Unity is actually Jesus the King’s #1 evangelism strategy. He prayed that we would be one, so that the world could believe in Him.

 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. John 17:21

But what is real unity. Real Biblical Unity is not ecumenicalism, its not putting aside our beliefs, its not everybody joining the same organization, or sitting in the same building. True Unity is conforming our beliefs to the image of Christ and the Word of God. Real unity is found in Romans 15

6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6

One Mind – Thinking the same things about Jesus Christ.

One Mouth – Saying the same things about Jesus Christ.

When we look at Jesus Christ long and hard enough in His Word and by His Spirit, we all will start seeing the sames glorious and beautiful things about Him. Then we will be changed into His image. We will stop fightiing with our different roles, and see each other connected to Christ. We will chop off every false head, principality, stronghold or idol that leads us away from Him. We won’t be in disagreement about Jesus, we will be in agreement with Jesus and about Jesus.

Every ministry will think the same things about Jesus. Every ministry will say the same things about Jesus Christ. That’s true Unity.

Let your Kingdom Come Father!

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.
