UNITY IN MINISTY Salt and Fire Prophetic Apostolic Training and Developing Center Yah doesn't just call people He calls them together. He's not creating "only children" He is creating brothers and sisters. The Bible tells us that people who believe in Jesus Christ are part of a family, a community, a people who interact with one another. The early Christians were a tight-knit community, meeting together, eating together, discussing the faith together (Acts 2:42). The apostle Paul described believers as "the body of Christ" (1 Corinthians 12:27). Not that each person is the body of Christ, but together we are the body and "the body is not made up of one part but of many" (verse 14). Why do we not have that same UNITY today in Most Churches? Why do we hear more about Church Hurt than Unity? Why do we run from Ministry to Ministry and do not learn to sit in commitment to that which is TRULY Following the Mashiyach? Paul then explains that we each have different strengths and abilities, given to us by Yah to help one another (verses 4-7). No one has all the ability, so everyone needs to stick together so that we can benefit from one another. Even if you are an Apostle able to touch each office you still do not have ALL ABILITIES! You need the Prophet on the right and the rest of the five fold in their rightful position. You have to learn that you are not the only one to carry out the mission. We have to kill this lying idea that we are to walk alone. That is not scripture and it is a root against unity. We have to know even in our OWN MINISTRIES we have to walk with the BODY. You are not to live in a isolated ministry. You are to connect and work with the Body. In some ways, we are able to give help; in other areas, we receive help from other believers. We are working together, learning to care for one another. That is why Yah has brought us together and given us different abilities. "Love one another," He tells us. "Be devoted to one another in brotherly love." "Serve one another in love" (Romans 12:10; 13:8; Galatians 5:13). To do that, it is essential that we know one another and meet one another on a regular basis. This is a habit that helps us grow spiritually. "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another" (Hebrews 10:25). The church would become so much powerful if we just learn what YAH means in His Unity. It is not I do for you only to advance my ministry. It is not I am only going to work with people that can get me connected with others. Watch your motives in why you are truly connected with a person. Why you really trying to get to speak at that conference? Do you want to see the advancement of the kingdom or your own ministry?
