Just as nimrod thought to rise above to Heaven with the tower of babel of which the Lord came down and divided the languages. “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.Go to,let us go down,and there confound(confuse)their language,that they may not understand one another’s speech”.(Genesis 11:6,7).
The body of Christ today has many division’s among it.Man has branched off with different religions,yet God remains the same and unchanged!……There is just one God not many. “There is one body,and one spirit,even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;One Lord,one Faith,one Baptism,One God and Father of all,who is above all,and through all,and in you all”.(Ephesians 4:4-6).The word denominate derived from denomination which means to give a name to and man has chose to give numerous names to God’s only ONE FAITH.It is so divided that they had to come out with even another called non denominational.The word denomination is not in the entire bible.
God knows the hearts and minds of men,and since nimrod gathering together to rise above God with his tower he has chose to unify the Body Of Christ through his Holy Spirit. “Now I beseech you,brethren,by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,that ye all speak the same thing,and that there be no divisions among you;but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same Judgement”. (1 Corinthians 1:10).
It was in unity that the disciples walked with Christ,always eager to learn of his ways and not the ways the synagogues taught. Jesus brought the doctrine of his Father and went into them to teach not sit and listen to what they had to say.(Matthew 4:23),(Mark 1:39),(Luke 21:37),(John 8:2).Even the Holy Ghost spoke to seperate Barnabas,Saul,and John to teach the word. “As they ministered to the lord,and fasted,the Holy Ghost said,seperate me Barnabas and saul for the work whereunto I have called them.And when they were at Salamis,they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the jews:and they had also John to their minister”.(Acts 13:2,5).
“Take heed to yourselves,and to all the flock,over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,to feed the church of God,which he hath purchased with his own blood”.(Acts 20:28).So now may there be unity among the people only found in Christ. “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;But speaking the truth in Love,may grow up into him in all things,which is the head,even Christ”.(Ephesians 4:14,15).
It is amazing how God confounded the language of the people in nimrod’s day only to bring unity to his people in these end times through the Holy Spirit!
“Behold,how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”.(Psalm 133:1).
