 True Unity and the Gathering of God’s Elect from many Denominations


Not all division is wrong and there are times for groups to be formed for a recovery of lost truth.

Therefore, some of these groups are started for good reasons, namely, the preserving of the testimony of Jesus Christ in their local area. Many groups splintered from a larger group because of the defection from truth (apostasy) that was beginning to happen.

Even some church bodies that claim themselves to be the only true church started from a sincere desire to preserve the truth when so many around them were deviating from God’s Word.

Yet this calls for the maturity of the saints of God in our day who are gathering together under the Headship of Jesus Christ to also have a heart for the larger body of Christ.

In some areas a specific group will exist for the purpose of calling the body of Christ to further purity, holiness and life. Yet these groups also need to have a realization and acceptance for others in the body of Christ who are even in churches they do not agree with.

God has a Remnant in many fellowships all over the world who have not bowed the knee to baal.

One way we can start to pray is for God to unify the elect people of God in local areas who are of the true body of Christ. God will hear such a prayer for His desire is to see victorious overcomers in local Assemblies gathering together.

Devoting ourselves to such prayers will begin to build in us a spiritual vision of how the Lord sees His end times Bride.

Amen! In John 17 Jesus prayed for unity. This unity can only come by knowing that we are in Him and He lives in us, and that through the Holy Spirit we are one body.

There are many that are hearing the voice of God to come out of Babylon, (the organized church system)
yet there are many members of the Body of Christ that are in bondage in this system. There are many pastors that are true men of God and love the people that are caught up in a relgious system.

So what is our attitude and view to be concerning those that have not heard the call to come up higher?

We are to love them and support them in any way that we can. God desires to not only work in our little group, but He wants to work within cities. Those that have the light can help others if there is true humility. We are called to be servants of the Lord and of His Church. Too often we seperate ourselves from the larger Body of Christ and call it spirituality, but the problem is that we have not seen the Body.

May the Lord give us eyes to see what He is doing within His Church and within the churches in our cities and regions.
