He Sent His Word

He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.  Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:20, 21 NKJV

Like Israel of the Old Testament, there are many—so many—Believers who are held captive by the enemy. They are bound by sin, sickness and disease, habits and lifestyles, and physical and emotional bondages; and they don’t know how to be free and stay free. But thank God for Jesus. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, the Word, the Logos, the Sun of righteousness with healing in His wings to heal and to deliver (Mal. 4:2). Now God wants His children to be free and stay free!

When God heals (Rapha, O.T.), He cure us; repairs us; and makes us whole. And, not only has God healed us, He has delivered (Malat, O.T.) us, i.e., made a way of escape, and released and rescued us from the Satan’s captivity. So, why don’t Believers stay free?

In the words of the Psalmist, “oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men (Text):  God has sent His Word and Believers have been set free, but many just don’t stay free because they stop praising and thanking God. When you stop praising and thanking God, the enemy can easily distract you and captivate you, because your focus isn’t on God, your Liberator, who has the power to keep you free. Selah. 

The Apostle Paul told the Colossian Christians to never stop  thanking God for three things (See Col. 1:12-14):  (1) God  made us fit and qualified to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light (Rom. 8:29-30); (2) He has delivered us from the power of darkness, and translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son (Eph. 6:12; 1 Peter 2:9); and, (3) God has redeemed us by the blood of Jesus and forgiven us of our sins (Gal. 3:13; Eph. 1:7). Our qualification, deliverance, and redemption were all possible because God first sent His Word!

Can Two Walk Together?

Can two walk together, unless they are agreed? . . .  If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid? If there is calamity in a city, will not the Lord have done it? Amos 3:3-6 NKJV

There are causal relationships in life. For example, choice and consequences; actions and reactions; and, cause and effect—that is, “but for” your choice, these are your consequences. In the above text, Amos’ prophetic assignment was to expose Israel’s sins, and to inform them that God would punish them for all their iniquities. He reminds Israel of the causal relationship between their sin and their separation from God. When sin is the cause, God’s judgment is the effect. So, can two walk together, except they are agreed?

What does “two walking together” mean?  It means oneness and unity, i.e., unanimous in mind for the same purpose; agreement; and, togetherness. The only way for two to “walk together” to the same appointment or strive to reach the same goal, or see the fulfillment of the same vision, is to be together. If you are living on the other side of God’s righteousness, you aren’t walking in agreement with God. Many want God to walk with them, but they don’t walk with Him.      .

Amos’ prophecy used five similes (figures of speech comparing one thing to another thing of a different kind), or you might say, parable-like questions to strike at the hearts of the sinful Israelites. Their impending calamity would be God’s doing. This principle isn’t limited to the Old Testament. Apostle Paul warned the Roman Christians that there would be “tribulation and distress upon every soul of man that does evil . . .” (Romans 2:9)

“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? (2 Cor. 6:14). To walk with God, there must be a separation from sin and iniquity, and a separation to God. There is no agreement living in the middle. Either you’re walking with God or with sin and iniquity. Two cannot walk together, except they are agreed!

Unity of the Faith

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13 NKJV

In birthing the church, God eliminated one of the greatest division that ever existed among men—the animus and the bigotry between Jews and Gentiles. Jews and Gentiles had vast differences culturally, socially, and in their religious beliefs and practices, or a lack thereof. After being baptized into the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13), Paul told the newly formed church, consisting of both Gentiles and Jews, to endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit, and that peace would be the glue to hold them together (Eph. 4:3). However, the unity of the Spirit is not the unity of the faith.

A common reaction when there are differences among people is divide and seek a more-in-common friendship, marriage, church, etc. Could this be why Paul pleaded with the Corinthian Christians to agree with one another so that there would be no divisions, and that they be perfectly united in mind and thought? (1 Cor. 1:10).

The Holy Spirit gives believers unity, and walking in love and in peace with others keeps that unity. But what is the unity of the faith? Consider Paul’s word to the Roman Christians:

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple” (Rom. 16:17-18).  Ergo, the unity of the faith is the equally shared belief among all believers in the doctrine of God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and salvation by grace through faith (Author’s definition). So, it is God’s intention to use Ephesians 4:11 ministry gifts to perfect believers to do the work of the ministry to build up and advance the Body of Christ, until we all come into the unity of the faith (Text).

Five-fold ministry gifts will all expire when believers come into the unity of the faith (doctrine), maturity (full growth and development), and conformity (morally like Christ, see 1 John 3:2). In John 17:20-23, Jesus prayed for believers’ unity of the faith. The Church is not there yet, but will get there!
