Five years ago, God began to reveal that there was a issue about race that was arising in the Body of Christ.
We have an invisible barrier that has been erected to keep us from fellowshipping together as a whole body!
To announce we are a ‘black church’, ‘white church’, ‘Spanish church’ is to say that we only want this race within our congregations.
It’s not the will of God for racism segregation prejudice and discrimination to exist among us as a Body of Believers.
The true love of God doesn’t see difference it only sees souls.
We have not learn how to embrace the diversity of each other’s nationalities or cultures because our spiritual upbringing taught us to shun anybody that was different.
It grieves my heart to see and hear those that say they are sons of God operating in hate bitterness and anger, because of race, creed or color.
Because of these mindsets, we have not been able to bring true unity and fellowship in the Body of Christ.
Until we get delivered and set free from these behaviors attitudes and characteristics we can never see the full impact of unity and love among us!
I’m branching out of the box to embrace my brothers and sisters everywhere!
A 2013 Word:
As I was in prayer, the Spirit of The LORD began to speak to me and said, “As long as racial and culture and denominational barriers remain, there will never be unity.”
He said, “It’s time for the apostles and prophets to come together in strategy to defeat the enemy.
It’s time for them to rebuild the foundation of My Kingdom.”
It’s time for earth to be silent so that they can hear the voice of God, and He can show us His will and His way.
As long as we continue to allow these barriers to exist we will have strife quarrels and wars among the Body of Christ.
We don’t cross these invisible lines that are in our hearts because secretly these things are in us.
When we distinguish each other through racial profiling by saying this is how we act in a black or white church.
We caused division by shunning each other because of denominational beliefs. Our pride and wickedness of heart is revealed through unwillingness to intermingle with those of different cultures because we feel they are beneath them.
It is the secrets of our hearts that He is revealing to us to bring deliverance, so that we can walk in real love and unity with each other!
