TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 10/14
“For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.”– Hebrews 10:14
King Jesus gave Himself as a perfect sacrifice to give you a different Spirit. You have been set apart from the world that is losing its mind. In this day of instability, you get to have stability that comes from His Presence. You are made new each day: spirit, soul, and body. Stand on that!
Declaration: I’m in this world, but not of it. I walk and talk like Jesus; not this world.
Unity in the Community
You know one of the most powerful things that can happen in anybody’s life, once they have given their heart to King Jesus, is to go through the incredibly prophetic act called baptism.
We know baptism has been a part of the tradition now for at least 2,000 years because even Paul talks about it. But, by the end of his life, Paul refused to baptize anybody. Why? Well, territorialism began to grow with baptism. It became more about who baptized who, and who does it best, rather than heart transformation.
The same territorialism exists in the church today. We hear it all the time with denominational talk. And don’t think the non-denominational churches are innocent. They are just as guilty. Because of this, I am more like Paul now. When it becomes less about Jesus and more about man’s doctrine, I am out.
We need to come together as the church–no more criticizing and judging one another. No more competing. Competition for numbers, salvations and tallying up lives as if they are trophies is not unity. It’s not! The American church needs to realize that if they aren’t against us, they are for us. The enemy knows once the church grows in power he is finished. Let’s help God put an end to this division in the church. Let’s have unity in the community especially when it comes to baptism.
“I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.” – 1 Corinthians 1:10
