I cannot tell you how much it means to the heart of God when we dwell together in Unity. What has even deeper meaning to the Father, is our walking in Oneness with each other. I saw a Post, just yesterday that was quite disturbing. The post preceded a Video which displayed an awesome move of God within a meeting. I happened to take part in that meeting; I make it a point to join other leaders in their God given work.
In fact, it is imperative that we LINK Up to achieve the Work of the Lord. The Division consistently "coached" and "coerced" into the hearts of Believers is NOTHING MORE THAN A PLOY to Prevent You and I from walking out John Chapter 17. It will do Us Well, NOT TO Heed to His Advise, Plans, or Ideals... even if it comes in the "form of" a prophetic utterance.
So excited about walking with YOU as ONE. Ephesians 4:11 - 19. Take a few minutes to read and digest these scriptures. They will help you when you are tempted to agree with that Divisive Spirit. The enemy comes only to kill, steal and destroy. How can he kill, steal or destroy us as a Body - ONE Body? He can do it from within - when we think of ourselves more highly than we ought... or when we "just love" what God did in our midst and decide "We have what we need - right here..." and we don't need anyone else...we don't need to attend any other meetings... we don't need to hear another voice... We have it all Right Here.
What a travesty if we should believe AND FOLLOW such immaturity! Watch as well as Pray, Saints! All these (in verse 11) were given for the "perfecting of the Saints...for the edifying of the body of Christ". And...they have been given their small part to share with You and Me from ACROSS the WHOLE BODY.
My Friend, I do not want to offend you, but you're not even tall enough to consider yourself as having come into the "measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ", when you speak of such division.
We are to be One "...whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love." Do you actually believe that God, our Father, who loves Us All - is going to leave out - the entire rest of the world of Believers from receiving what YOU have to offer...or prevent you from receiving what ANOTHER Messenger of the Lord has to offer you...because they are not in your small toe or you in their giant foot?
There IS A SUPPLY of a meal TAUGHT...an experience in WORSHIP... an ENCOURAGING WORD PROVIDED...a DELIVERY OF WORKS that need to be implemented - - by YOUR HANDS - that is NO Where Near the Place where you currently stand. Let's repent for walking in such vanity within our own minds.
You totally forgot...You misspoke. You thought you were whole. You forgot that you are an eyelash... that I am a cuticle...that she is a tongue...that he is a cheek. Your church, my ministry, your studio - with all its fabulous dancers, your worship team... and their drama team - ain't nothing but a Body Part!!! I know...I said "ain't". If it will cause you to stumble...then "are". But know this - Brothers and Sisters...The enemy of OUR Souls seeks to destroy us from within. STOP cooperating. It's TIME TO GROW UP in Christ - in ALL these kinds of things. Amen? Amen.
I Love You So Much.

Ephesians 4:11 - 19 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 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;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
