How very appropriate!
In my spirit, I see a Snowplow in the middle of January! It’s a big one — one of those that seems to scoop the snow up and blow it to the side of the road.
Unlike a train plow, which just throws the snow either side of the track, this one operates on roads and throws the snow only to the near side of the road.
It leaves the road still slippery, but nevertheless drivable. Suddenly, the plow turns off the road and drives straight up to the Front Door of a Church!
My scintillatingly fast brain realises that there’s a message here somewhere!
“Wait and watch a bit longer!” I hear, so I waited. Having reached the Front Door, the plow turns around, returns to the highway, and proceeds on down the road to another Church, then another, then another.
Just as I’m wondering why this is all happening, I hear The Holy Spirit speak.
“My Churches have separated themselves from each other. They have built almost impossible barriers around themselves.
Barriers that are cold, and hard as ice. Barriers that are impenetrable without special equipment. Barriers that will repel with just one slip.
That’s why I represented them as snow and ice!
Unity with such churches is almost impossible without a major change of circumstances. That’s why I showed you the snow plow cutting a drivable, walkable pathway to their doors.
You will notice I approached their Front Doors — so that everyone could see what is happening — no back doorway, back room deals, only up front, visible, accountable actions.
I approached their Front Doors by making a viable way there, so that when I knock on their door, everyone will be able to see their reactions.
In this manner, I will approach each denomination, and I will offer unity — Unity of Spirit, Unity of The Gospel, and Unity of much of their Doctrine.
For far too long, denominations have ring-fenced themselves with their own doctrines and their own practices.
Their pride, and arrogant belief that their stance is ‘right’ and everyone else’s stance is ‘wrong’ totally ignores the vast amount, 95%, of Doctrine and Theology they have in common with each other.
I will have Unity where none exists at the moment.
That ‘unity’ which exists at the moment is little more than sharing services and pulpits, without any change of doctrinal stance.
Pride is the biggest barrier — pride in doctrine, pride in a persons position and authority in their current structure, and pride in being ‘right’, regardless of what other denominations might think or believe!
Very few are servants, but are more served by the church they are responsible for shepherding.
There is little or no humility and foot washing from leaders, more an attitude which asks what you can do for Me/ us.
A change is about to take place as The Holy Spirit sweeps through old barriers and brings restoration through repentance and genuine change of attitude,” says The LORD.
“There is coming a noticeable unity within the Remnant Church as My Remnant People of all denominations come together in unity — as they lock step together in the fight against evil — and as they unite in their simple Gospel Message.
As in the original church, they will pool their resources in order to finance themselves and others in that fight.
Remember My Declaration, that the wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous!
This too shall be demonstrated in the seasons to come.
I AM The LORD God Almighty, and I AM no man’s debtor!” says The LORD.
