UNDESCRIBABLE GOD

PASTOR ALICE MHURIROSUNDAY SERVICE

THE UNDESCRIBABLE GOD, SOVEREIGN GOD

JOHN SAW HIS MAJESTIC GREATNESS AT THE 7 AT THE ISLE OF PATMOS IN THE MIDST OF THE 7 CANDLESTICKS, HE COULDN’T DESCRIBE HIM

HE SAID

YOU WERE ONE LIKE THE SON OF MAN

YOUR HAIR AND YOUR HEAD WAS LIKE A WOOL, AS WHITE AS SNOW

YOU EYES WERE LIKE A FLAME OF FIRE

YOUR FEET WERE LIKE FINE BRASS, REFINED IN FURNACE

YOUR VOICE LIKE THE SOUND OF MANY WATERS

YOUR COUNTENANCE LIKE THE SUN SHINING IN ITS STRENGTH

OH, WHO IS LIKE YOU OH LORD, THE ONE WHO HOLDS THE KEYS OF HADES AND DEATH, THE ONE WHO LIVES AND WAS DEAD AND LIVES FOREVERMORE.

  • KUMBAYA

WHEN HIS PRESENCE SHOWS UP, WE SEE OUR NAKEDNESS

WHEN HIS PRESENCE SHOW UP, WE CANNOT STAND, WE ALL KNEEL OR PROSTATE

WHEN HIS PRESENCE IS HERE, WE CRY WOE TO ME FOR I AM UNDONE

WHEN HE SHOWS UP, ALL THE FEAR AND PANIC ABOUT CORONA VIRUS WILL DIE

SHOW UP HOLY SPIRIT

YOUR PRESENCE LORD, IS WHAT WE DESIRE

INTRODUCTION

  • Its always an honour to preach the word of God, Paul would speak to the church in Rome, I am obliged to preach to the Greeks, barbarians, civilized and to the savage, to the educated and to the ignorant.
  • To the Corinth church he said…. woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
  • IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY I DO NOT TAKE FOR GRANTED
  • WE ARE ALL COMING FROM DIFFERENT HOMES, I DON’T KNOW WHAT CHALLENGES AND PROBLEMS YOU ARE FACING
  • SOMEONE MIGHT BE HERE WITH THOUGHTS OF COMMITTING SUICIDE AND I COME HERE AND PLAY
  • GOD FORBID I DON’T WANT YOUR BLOOD ON MY HANDS

THEREFORE: PRAYER

  • WHEN A MESSAGE IS REPEATED, IT MEANS THAT IT IS ON THE HEART OF GOD
  • VERILY, VERILY, PLACING EMPHASIS ON THE WORD THAT FOLLOWED
  • I BELIEVE GOD IS SAYING SOMETHING, AND IS EXPECTING OUR RESPONSE.
  • THE ENTRANCE OF THE WORD BRINGS LIGHT
  • GIDEON AND THE MEDIANITES

JUDGES 6 VERSE 11 – 16

JUDGES 7 VERSE 9 – 22

  • VERSE 21, EVERY MAN STOOD IN HIS PLACE
  • THEY CONQUERED BECAUSE THEY WERE ONE
  • NOMATTER HOW BIG THE ENERMY IS, AS ONE MAN WE WILL CONQUER
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE IF THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WERE DIVIDED? THINK TO YOUR SELF
  • WAS JESUS GOING TO ACCEPT TO LEAVE HIS THRONE AND COME DIE A SHAMEFUL DEATH, WOULD JESUS HAVE AGREED TO BE BORN IN A MANGER, FROM A POOR FAMILY, IN A DESPISED CITY?
  • WOULD THE HOLY SPIRIT HAVE AGREED TO DESCEND WHEN JESUS ASCENDED
  • WOULD THE FATHER HAVE ENTRUSTED THE SON JESUS TO COME AS THE SECOND ADAM, CONSIDERING THE FIRST ADAM HAD FAILED HIM
  • JUST THROWING THE QUESTIONS TO YOU TO PONDER.
  • EVERYTHING THAT WAS CREATED WAS CREATED BECAUSE THE 3 AGREED AND THEY WERE 1.
  • GENESIS 1 (TRIUNE, WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CREATION)
  • SUPPORTING SCRIPTURE  (JOHN 1 VERSE 1 TO 14)
  • THE FATHER, SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WERE IN AGREEMENT PERTAINING EVERYTHING
  • THAT’S WHAT THE WORD WOULD ALWAYS SAY “US”,
  • THEY ALL HAVE THEIR DIFFERENT ROLES BUT THAT DOES NOT SEPARATE THEM

PAUSE FOR A MINUTE, AND SHARE GRACE

MAY THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS, THE LOVE OF GOD, AND THE SWEET FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BE WITH US (COMPLETE PARKAGE, DIFFERENT ASSIGNMENTS, SAME PURPOSE) NATIONS MUST COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD

  • THE ISRAELISTS NEEDED THE 4CS TO SUCCEED IN THE BATTLE
  • CONNECTION, (LINK TO EACH OTHER)
  • COOPERATION, (SUPPORT)
  • COLLABORATION (TEAMWORK)
  • COORDINATION (ORGANISED)

IM COMING CLOSER HOME NOW, THIS IS A MATTER CLOSE TO THE HEART OF GOD, I HAVE TO DO A BIT OF SCRIPTURAL EXERGESIS TO LAND WHERE GOD WANTS US TO LAND.

TELL YOUR NEIGHBOUR TO HOLD ON

CLMI GOD WANTS YOU TO BE UNITED, INFACT GOD WANTS YOU TO BE ONE

  • LET ME TAKE YOU BACK TO FEW DECADES BACK, WHEN SOME OF US WERE LITTLE, THERE IS A GAME WE USED TO PLAY (HERE ITS TIGHTLY BOUND, HERE IS VERY LOOSE)
  • FOR US IT WAS JUST A GAME, A WAY TO WASTE OUR TIME THAT WE DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING ELSE TO DO WITH
  • BUT AS I GREW AND AS I SEE WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN THE BODY OF CHRIST, THE HATE OF BRETHREN, THE SLAYING OF EACH OTHER, THE DIVISIONS, THE GOSSIP, GROUPINGS, THE BACKBITINGS, THE BETRAYALS, AND HOW THEY HAVE WEAKENED THE CHURCH, I REMEMBERED THE GAME, IT STARTED MAKING SENSE)
  • WHERE THERE IS DIVISION, THE CHURCH IS WEAKENED, AND THE ENERMY CAN EASILY ACCESS, BECAUSE HE CAPITALIZES ON CONFUSION.
  • PLEASE NOTE, I HAVE MENTIONED IT BEFORE, AND I WILL SAY IT AGAIN, I AM NOT SAYING THERE IS DISUNITY IN THE CHURCH. IM SPEAKING FROM A POSITION OF PURITY
  • THE WORD WHEN IT IS RELEASED, IT BECOMES BREAD TO THE EATER AND SEED TO THE SOWER. WHO KNOWS, WE MIGHT NEED TO PLANT IT FOR A FUTURE HARVEST
  • THE CHURCH IS FAILING BECAUSE THERE IS NO UNITY

SAY GOD USE ME AS A CATALYST FOR UNITY IN CLMI

I REJECT TO BE THE AGENT OF SATAN WHO SOWS SEEDS OF DISCORD IN THE HOUSE OF GOD

2. ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF UNITY

GENESIS 11:1-11 (TOWER OF BABEL)

  • THE POWER OF ONENESS
  • WHATEVER YOU PURPOSE TO DO YOU CAN DO
  • THEY WERE SO DETERMINED AS ONE THEY WOULD MAKE IT AND INDEED THEY WERE GOING TO DO IT
  • EVEN GOD HIMSELF ADMITTED IT, WHEN HE SAW WHAT THEY HAD BUILD, HE KNEW THAT WHATEVER ELSE THEY SUGGEST TO DO, THEY WERE GOING TO DO IT AND SUCCEED, BECAUSE THEY WERE ONE, SHARING ONE LANGUAGE, SPEAKING THE SAME THING
  • WHEN WE ARE ONE, WE SHARE THE SAME LANGUAGE AND WE SPEAK THE SAME THING WE ARE BOUND TO SUCCEED IN ALL WE DO AS A CHURCH
  • THEY HAD THE RESOURCES, BRICKS, THEY HAD THE MORTAR, THEY HAD THE LAND AND MOST IMPORTANTANTLY THEY HAD THE ONENESS.
  • THIS WAS NEGATIVE ONENESS, BUT IT WAS VERY POWERFUL THAT IT NEEDED GOD HIMSELF HAD TO INTERVENE AND STOP THEM
  • ONENESS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION IS GOOD BUT ONENESS IN THE WRONG DIRECTION IS DANGEROUS.

2A THE REDWOOD TREES

  • THERE ARE AMAZING TREES IN CALIFONIA CALLED THE REDWOOD TREES, THERE IS SOMETHING WE CAN LEARN AS A CHURCH FROM THESE TREES
  •  THEY ARE THE TALLEST AND OLDEST TREES IN THE WORLD, SOME OF THEM ARE 300 FEET HIGH AND MORE THAN 2,500 YEARS OLD.
  • WITH THIS IN MIND YOU WOULD THINK THAT TREES THIS LARGE WOULD HAVE TO HAVE AN INCREDIBLE ROOT SYSTEM, REACHING DOWN 100 FEET INTO THE EARTH…BUT NO
  • BUT THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS REDWOODS HAVE A VERY SHALLOW ROOT SYSTEM.
  • BUT THE ROOTS OF THESE TREES INTERTWINE AND INTERLOCK WITH EACH OTHER
  • SUCH THAT WHEN STORMS COME AND THE WINDS BLOW THE REDWOODS STILL STAND.
  • WITH AN INTERLOCKING ROOT SYSTEM THEY SUPPORT AND SUSTAIN EACH OTHER.
  • THEY NEED ONE ANOTHER TO SURVIVE, SO DO WE
  • SAY GOD USE ME AS A CATALYST FOR UNITY IN CLMI
  • I REJECT TO BE THE AGENT OF SATAN WHO SOWS SEEDS OF DISCORD IN THE HOUSE OF GOD
  • JOHN 17 VERSE 11,21,22,23 (THE PRAYER OF JESUS)
  • JESUS PRAYED FOR HIMSELF, HIS DISCIPLES AND PRAYED FOR YOU AND ME
  • HE TOLD HIS FATHER IN VERSE 4, THAT HE HAS ACCOMPLISHED WHAT HIS FATHER SENT HIM TO DO AND WANTED HIS DISCIPLES TO EMULATE THE ONENESS THAT HE AND HIS FATHER DISPLAYED
  • THIS UNITY MEANT IN VERSE 4, ONENESS OF PURPOSE / UNITY OF PURPOSE, THEY WERE UNITED ON A COMMON PURPOSE
  • IF IT WAS NOT SO, JESUS COULD NOT HAVE ENDURED THE PAIN
  • IF HE COULD ENDURE THE CROSS, WE CAN ALSO ENDURE HARDSHIPS
  • WAS ANYONE AMONG US NAILED ON THE CROSS HERE??? BUT EVERY LITTLE THING MOVES US, SMALL GOSSIP, SMALL BETRAYAL, YOU ARE STEPPED ON YOUR FOOT, YOU BACKSLIDE
  • ARISE OH SLEEPER, CHRIST IS SOON COMING, NO MORE TIME TO BE A CRY BABY, WE HAVE SOULS TO WIN, WE HAVE BIGGER ISSUES TO DEAL WITH
  • WHY DO YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN MEN? MEN WILL DISSAPOINT YOU.
  • PEOPLE USED TO TELL ME IM NICE, HEY, THIS NICE PERSON WILL DISSAPOINT YOU, TRUST IN THE LORD
  • JEREMIAH SAID, IF YOU HAVE RUN WITH MEN ON FOOT AND THEY HAVE WEARIED YOU, HOW WILL YOU CONTEND WITH HORSES?
  • IF YOU STUMBLE IN SAFE COUNTRY, HOW WILL YOU MANAGE IN THE THICKETS BY THE JORDAN
  • KNOW WHO TO TRUST
  • I MADE A DECISION, I WANT HORSES…IM NOT GOING TO LET MEN PULL ME DOWN.
  • UNITY IS NOT SAMENESS/UNIFORMITY; IT IS GOING IN THE SAME DIRECTION WITH OUR UNIQUENESS WITH THE AIM OF ACHIEVING A COMMON PURPOSE
  • WE CAN NEVER BE THE SAME, WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT
  • SOME ARE TALL, SOME ARE VERTICALLY CHALLENGED, DARK, BUT WHEN GOD MADE ALL OF US HE SAID BEHOLD IT WAS GOOD
  • WE HAVE DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS, DIFFERENT LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING, DIFFERENT SOCIETAL STATUS, DIFFERENT BELIEFS, EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUNDS, BUT WE ARE 1 IN THE HOUSE OF GOD, WE ARE EQUAL BEFORE GOD
  • WE ARE ALL EQUALLY IMPORTANT
  • WE DO NOT COMPETE, WE COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER
  • I CANT BE YOU, YOU CANT BE ME, I CANT DO WHAT YOU CAN DO, YOU CANT DO WHAT I CAN DO
  • STAY IN YOUR LANE AND DO YOUR BEST FOR THE ACHIEVEMENT OF A COMMON PURPOSE
  •  
  • WE CALL IT UNITY IN DIVERSITY THE AIM IS TO ACHIEVE THE VISION OF CLMI, CHRIST HIMSELF
  • ALL DIFFERENCES THAT EXISTS, POSITIONS, GIFTINGS, ARE DESIGNED TO ACCOMPLISH THE SAME GOAL
  • THE FATHER IS NOT THE SON, THE SON IS NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT, BUT THEY ARE 3 DISTINCT PERSONS, OPERATING ON THE SAME PAGE BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING AFTER THE SAME PURPOSE
  • WHEN WE ALL START PURSUING OUR DIFFERENT PURPOSES, (BIRTHING OF COMPETITION, STRIVING WITH EACH OTHER, CONSUMED BY SELF, OUT SHINING THE BRETHREN, GOSSIP)
  • THERE WILL AUTOMATICALLY HAVE DIFFERENCES AND DIVISIONS AND CONFLICT, IN THE CHURCH BECAUSE EVERYONE HAS THEIR PURPOSE
  • CIRCULAR WORLD WE DO OUR STRATEGIC PLANNING 5 YEAR MASTER PLAN
  • STRATEGIC PLANNING, CASCADED STRATEGIC INITIATIVES TO LOWER LEVEL MANAGEMENT, PREPARING CORPORATE SCORECARDS
  • EVERYTHING IN THE BIBLE THEY TAKE FROM THE BIBLE (WHO CAN START BUILDING A HOUSE WITHOUT SITTING DOWN AND COUNTING THE COSTS TO SEE IF HE HAS ENOUGH MONEY) LUKE
  • COMPANY VISION– ROAD MAP TO ACHIEVING THE OBJECTIVES
  • AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE SAME VISION, WE WILL NOT HAVE DIVISION, DIVISION/ DI VISION MULTIPLE VISIONS
  • UNITY CAN NOT EXIST IF WE ARE UNCLEAR OF WHAT WE ARE UNIFIED ABOUT
  • SOME PEOPLE ARE UNIFIED BY SOCCER, OTHERS BY BUSINESS, FOOD, CULTURE ETC, COMMON INTERESTS
  • WHAT ARE WE UNIFIED ABOUT AS CLMI
  • DO WE KNOW OUR PURPOSE AS CLMI
  • CLMI VISION 1 TIMOTHY 1:5 NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV)
  • THE GOAL OF THIS COMMAND IS LOVE, WHICH COMES FROM A PURE HEART AND A GOOD CONSCIENCE AND A SINCERE FAITH.
  • WE ARE NOT COMPETING, WE COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER

SAY NEIGHBOUR, YOU ARE THE BEST IN WHAT YOU DO

SAY I AM NOT YOUR COMPETITOR, WE COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER

LIKE PAP AND RELISH..PAP IS PAP, MEAT IS MEAT, CAN YOU REPLACE MEAT WITH PAP? THEN YOU SAY TODAY WE ARE EATING PAP WITH PAP

EVERYONE HAS THEIR ROLE AND IS IMPORTANT IN THEIR OWN SPACE

  • SOMEONE MIGHT BE SAYING, I LIKE THIS IDEA OF UNITY BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH
  • YES YOU ARE ALSO DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH, BECAUSE YOU ARE YOU
  • LETS EMBRACE OUR DIFFERENCES
  • SOME PEOPLE ARE SALT, SOME ARE SUGAR, SOME ARE SALT AND SUGAR SOLUTION, SOME ARE EVEN CHILLI
  • SUGAR IN ITS SWEETNESS, SALT IN ITS BITTERNESS WHEN WE NEED SALT AND SUGAR SOLUTION WE MIX BOTH
  • EVERYONE FITS SOMEWHERE
  • YOU CANNOT PUT CHILLI IN TEA, BUT ITS VERY NICE IN RELISH…KNOW YOUR POSITION, KNOW YOUR GIFTING, KNOW YOUR CALLING AND DON’T WASTE TIME
  • EXAMPLE HUSBAND AND WIFE
  • WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, EVEN ME AND MY HUSBAND, THERE ARE THINGS HE DOESN’T LIKE ABOUT ME, THERE ARE THINGS I DON’T LIKE ABOUT HIM, BUT WE ARE TOGETHER, WE HAVE LEARNT TO EMBACE OUR DIFFERENCES AND TO LIVE WITH EACH OTHERS WEAKNESS AND WE ARE NOT DIVORCING BECAUSE OF THOSE DIFFERENCES
  • WE HAVE BIGGER THINGS THAT JOINS US THAT ARE BIGGER THAN THE WEAKNESSES, THE LOVE THAT WE SHARE
  • OUR COMMON INTERESTS UNIFY US, CHRIST UNIFIES, THE DESIRE TO MAKE IT TO GOD UNIFIES US
  • LOVE COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SIN, WE CANNOT UNITE IF WE CAN NOT LOVE EACH OTHER, AND CARRY EACH OTHERS BURDENS

4. UNITY IN DIVERSITY (1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-6)

  • PETER AND PAUL DISTINCTION
  • PAUL- HE RECEIVED HIS DAMASCUS ROAD CALL
  • IMMEDIATELY CONVERTED, AND TOOK UP HIS ASSIGNMENT, PETER WAS ALREADY IN THE FIELD WITH CHRIST
  • PAUL WROTE ABOUT HALF OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • IF YOU READ GALATIANS, EPHESSIANS, PHILLIPIANS, CORINTHIANS, ROMANS YOU CAN AGREE WITH ME THAT HIS LETTERS ARE VERY HEAVY
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 10:10 “FOR HIS LETTERS, SAY THEY, ARE WEIGHTY AND POWERFUL, BUT HIS BODILY PRESENCE IS WEAK AND HIS SPEECH CONTEMPTIBLE.
  • ACTS 20:9, PAUL PREACHED ON AND ON AND UTYCUS FELL AND DIED, IT TELLS A LOT OF THE WEAKNESS OF HIS BODILY PRESENCE
  • BUT THE FACT THAT HIS BODILY PRESENCE WAS WEAK AND HIS SPEECH CONTEMPTIBLE, DID NOT MAKE HIM LESS IMPORTANT THAN PETER.
  • THEY HAD THEIR DIFFERENCES BUT THEY WERE ALL WORKING TOWARDS A COMMON PURPOSE.
  • PETER WOULD PREACH AND 1 SERMON WOULD BRING 3000 SOULS TO CHRIST, PAUL WOULD PREACH AND PEOPLE WOULD FALL AND DIE
  • 1 SERMON OF PETER FACILITATED THE BIRTH OF THE CHURCH
  • ACTS 2;14-41
  • BUT PETER ONLY WROTE 2 EPISTLES 1ST AND 2ND PETER BUT HIS PREACHING WAS POWERFUL
  • THEY HAD THE SAME PURPOSE, ADVANCING THE KINGDOM OF GOD
  • PAUL WAS CALLED FOR THE GENTILES, PETER WAS CALLED TO THE JEWS
  • WE STILL ENJOY THE PAULINE GOSPEL, AND LEARN A LOT ON CHURCH OPERATIONS FROM PETER
  • WE COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER
  • IF YOU ARE CALLED FOR THE GENTILES, DON’T TARY, IF YOU ARE CALLED FOR THE JEWS, DON’T TARY, IF YOU ARE CALLED TO PREACH TO THE ZACCHEUS, DON’T TARY, IF YOU ARE CALLED TO PREACH IN OKAHANDJA PARK DON’T TARY
  • IF YOU ARE CALLED TO USHER, STAND AT THE DOOR, DON’T TARY, GO TO THE GUARDPOST’
  • WE NEED PETER, WE NEED PAUL, WE NEED THE 5 FOLD MINISTRY, EVANGELISTS, PASTORS, TEACHERS, APOSTLES, PROPHETS, FOR THE EQUIPPING OF THE BODY OF CHRIST
  • NOT FOR ENTITLEMENT
  • THERE ARE THINGS THAT I CAN LEARN FROM THE NEXT PERSON
  • THE ONLY WAY I CAN BE BUILD IS BY CELEBRATING GRACE IN OTHERS
  • THE WISEMEN SAW A KING IN A BABY, MAY GOD OPEN OUR EYES
  • (PASTOR ASSER AND ELDER IKE, WHEN BISHOP WENT TO USA)
  • WE LOVE BISHOP, BUT ITS NOT ABOUT THE VESSEL, ITS ABOUT JESUS
  • LETS CELEBRATE EACH OTHER, THERE IS UNITY IN DIVERSITY, WE COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER
  • THE PROBLEM WITH US WE WANT TO COMPARE TOO MUCH
  • JESUS AND JOHN THE BAPTIST
  • ELIJA AND JOHN THE BAPTIST
  • NOAH AND MOSES (THEY ALL BUILD ARKS)
  • WE CANNOT MEASURE THE ASSIGNMENT OF GOD, WE DON’T HAVE THE YARDSTICK
  • THE ONLY YARDSTICK WILL BE “WELLDONE GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT”
  • GOD IS CALLING CLMI TO A PLACE OF ONENESS
  • 1 CORINTHIANS 1 VERSE 10 ( “NOW I BESEECH YOU, BRETHREN, BY THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, THAT YE ALL SPEAK THE SAME THING, AND THAT THERE BE NO DIVISIONS AMONG YOU; BUT THAT YE BE PERFECTLY JOINED TOGETHER IN THE SAME MIND AND IN THE SAME JUDGMENT.” … RATHER, BE OF ONE MIND, UNITED IN THOUGHT AND PURPOSE.”)
  • YES WE ARE HUMAN, AND WE ARE BOUND TO HAVE DIFFERENCES, CROSS EACH OTHERS PATHS, AND STEP ON EACH OTHERS TOES, STEP IN YOUR BRETHRENS GARDEN
  • WE ARE NOT YET PERFECTED, WE ARE ALL SEEKING PERFECTION
  • SO DON’T COME TO CHURCH THINKING YOU WILL FIND PERFECT PEOPLE, WE ARE GOING TO THAT PLACE OF PERFECTION
  • WE ARE NOT YET GLORIFIED
  • A CHURCH IS A LIKE A HOSPITAL, WHERE SICK PEOPLE GO FOR HEALING
  • YOU DON’T FIND HEALTHY PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITAL
  • WE HAVE NOT YET ARRIVED, HENCE THE NEED TO SEEK THE LORD EVERYDAY
  • WHEN WE ARE ONE, ITS EASY TO LIFT ONE ANOTHER WHEN WE ARE ABOUT TO BACKSLIDE
  • ITS EASY TO SEE THE NEED IN ONES LIFE
  • YOU WILL KNOW THAT YOU CARRY AN ANSWER TO SOMEONES PRAYER
  • SOMEONE IS NOT SLEEPING PRAYING FOR SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE, WE CAN ONLY SEE IT IF WE ARE ONE
  • ITS EASY TO NOTICE THAT A BRETHREN IS ABOUT TO FALL, AND YOU STRENGTHEN EACH OTHER
  • WE ARE ONE BODY, DIFFERENT BODY PARTS, SAME BODY, EACH PART FUNCTIONING ACCORDING TO ITS PURPOSE
  • THE PARTS THAT ARE OUTSIDE THAT ARE SEEN AND THE PART THAT ARE INSIDE THAT ARE HIDDEN
  • HIDDEN PARTS ARE THE MOST CRITICAL IN THE BODY, BE CAREFUL NOT TO THINK THAT IF YOU STAND ON THE PULPIT YOU ARE THE GREATEST
  • EG OF TOILET CLEANING AND CHURCH CLEANING ASSIGNMENT
  • IF ONE PART OF YOUR BODY IS SICK, THE WHOLE BODY IS AFFECTED AND GOES TO SLEEP

5.THE UPPER ROOM EXPERIENCE

  • ACTS 2: 1-2
  • WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME DOWN ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST , THE CULTURE HE MET IN THAT ROOM WAS THE CULTURE OF ONENESS
  • IT WASN’T THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT UNITED THE DISCIPLES AND MADE THEM ONE WHEN HE CAME BUT RATHER , IT WAS THE ONENESS OF THE DISCIPLES IN THAT ROOM THAT SUDDENLY BROUGHT HIM
  • I BELIEVE IT WASN’T ABOUT THE CITY JERUSALEM THAT BROUGHT THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • IT WAS NOT ABOUT THE UPPER ROOM ITSELF
  • IT WAS NOT ABOUT THE WAITING PERIOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT COULD COME AT ANY DAY
  • IT WAS ABOUT THEM BEING IN ONE ACCORD
  • WE NEED THIS UPPEROOM EXPERIENCE (TELL YOUR NEIGHBOUR)
  • AND ALL THROUGH THE BOOK OF ACTS , THEY CONTINUED IN ONE ACCORD AND THE CHURCH GREW
  • ACTS 2:24,46
  • BECAUSE OF THE UNITY, NOONE LACKED AMONGST THEM BECAUSE OF UNITY OF HEART AND UNITY OF SOUL (ACTS 4:32-35)
  • YOU ARE IMPORTANT IN THIS CHURCH
  • YOU ARE IMPORTANT IN CLMI
  • YOU ARE IMPORTANT IN THE BODY OF CHRIST
  • 1 PETER 2, YOU ARE A LIVINGSTONE, CHOSEN OF GOD, PRECIOUS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD
  • GOD IS THANKING YOU FOR YOUR FAITHFULNESS IN THE CHURCH

6. THE POWER OF SYNERGY

ECCLESIATES 4 VERSE 9 -12

 Two are better than one,
Because they have a good reward for their labor.
10 For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up.
11 Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Deutronomy 32:30

1 shall chase a thousand and 2 shall chase 10 thousand (the army nature of the church of Christ)

Leviticus 26:8

And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword

  • There is nothing called a 1 man army, we need each other

Psalm 68:6

God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. The lonely are brought into a family

Psalm 133

133 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

PRAYERS

  • CORONA VIRUS- JUDGEMENT FORM GOD, THAT WE KNOW THAT THE EARTH AND ITS FULLNESS IS HIS. WE SPEND TIME FOCUSING ON WHO IS NAMIBIAN, WHO IS ZIMBABWEAN, WHO IS AMERICAN, CHINESE IN OUR COUNTRY… WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD
  • GOD IS REMINDING US THAT HE POSSESSES THE EARTH, WE HAVE BEEN FOCUSING ON MANY OTHER THINGS, POLITICS, FINANCES, CAREERS, WE HAVE MADE THESE THINGS IDOLS, BUT ALL IS VANITY.
  • WHEVEVER THE CHILDREN OF GOD WOULD SIN, GOD WOULD SEND AN OPPRESSOR TO PUNISH THEM, THEY WOULD THEN SRY OUT TO THE FATHER, AND HE WOULD SEND HELP
  • BOOK OF JUDGES (EGLON-EHUD, CUSHAN-OTHNIEL, JABIN KING OF CANAAN-DEBORAH, MEDIANITES – GIDEON)
  • WE CAN CRY TO GOD AND HE WILL SEND HELP FROM HIS SANCTUARY

SAY FATHER, IN THE BOOK OF JUDGES YOU WOULD EQUIP 1 MEN TO RESCUE YOUR CHILDREN, ENTRUST ME WITH THIS RESPONSIBILITY, I AM AVAILABLE, I AM HERE, SEND ME TO PRAY FOR NATIONS, I ARISE FROM SLUMBER AND TAKE MY POSITION AS A CHILD OF GOD, TO ROOT OUT, TO PULL DOWN, TO DESTROY, TO THROW DOWN ANY CORONA VIRUS IN WINDHOEK, NAMIBIA, IN AFRICA, ASIA, EUROPE, AMERICA

I SANITIZE WINDHOEK, NAMIBIA, AND THE WHOLE WORLD WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS

WE REPENT ON BEHALF OF THE WHOLE WORLD, WE REPENT OF IDOLATRY, INEQUITY,ALL THE SINS OF THE FLESH, ADULTERY, FORNICATION, UNCLEANNESS, LEWDNESS, SORCERY, HATRED, CONTENTIONS, JEALOUSIES, DIVISIONS, OUTBURSTS OF WRATH, SELFISH AMBITIONS, DISSENSIONS, HERESIES,  ENVY, MURDERS, DRUNKENNESS. WE REPENT OF CORRUPTION, GREEDINESS, NOT TAKING CARE OF THE POOR, MAY YOU HEAR OUR CRY LORD AND FORGIVE US. THOSE WHO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED…CALL ON HIM NOW

  • GO BEFORE THE LORD AND THANK HIM FOR THE WORD, WHENEVER GOD RELEASES A WORD ITS FOR US TO PONDER UPON AND PRAY, I AM NOT IMPLYING THAT THERE IS NO UNITY IN THE CHURCH, THIS MAY BE A SEED WORD FOR THE SOWER WHICH MIGHT BE USEFUL IN THE FUTURE, BUT IF IT IS BREAD, THEN LET THE EATER EAT IT AND BE SATISFIED
  • BEFORE WE PRAY, I WANT US TO GREET ONE ANOTHER, HUG YOUR BRETHREN, AND IF YOU HAVE ANYONE THAT YOU HAVE BAD BLOOD WITH, GO AND TALK TO THEM, HUG THEM FORGIVE EACH OTHER AND RELEASE EACH OTHER FOR THE GLORY OF THE LORD. 1 THING THAT HINDERS UNITY IS UNFORGIVENESS
  • WE HAVE ALL THE NICE WORDS TO SUGAR QOUTE EVIL- WE SIMPLY CANT CONNECT, WE DON’T CLICK, OUR BLOOD DON’T JUST FLOW IN THE SAME DIRECTION
  • SOME BRETHREN DON’T TALK TO EACH OTHER, LETS SHOW THE WORLD THAT WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD AND WE OPERATE IN THE SPIRIT NOT IN THE FLESH. HOW DO WE WIN THE WORLD IF WE CANNOT LOVE EACH OTHER
  • WHAT DO WE HAVE TO OFFER TO THE WORLD
  • A DRUNKARD WILL TELL YOU I GO TO THE BAR WITH NO CENT I COME BACK HOME, HOW WILL YOU RESPOND, IF YOU YOURSELF IS BROKEN, UNFORGIVING, BITTER AND TWISTED, YOU CANT EVEN SMILE, WE CANT EVEN GREET EACH OTHER
  • FATHER, MANY HAVE WRONGED US, AND WE ALSO HAVE WRONGED OTHERS IN THE CHURCH, HELP US TO RELEASE EACH OTHER AND FOCUS ON BUILDING YOUR WORK
  • OH LORD, AS WE WORK TOGETHER TO BUILD YOUR KINGDOM, LET US BE THE LIGHT THAT LEADS THE WORLD TO YOU.
  • GOD, HELP US TO BE GOOD ROLE MODELS TO THE PEOPLE AROUND US AND TO THE WORLD AT LARGE, SO THAT WHEN THEY SEE US AND THE LOVE WITHIN US, THEY WOULD WANT TO KNOW YOU MORE AND MORE. YOU KNOW PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT US.
  • WE RAISE CLMI, TO BE AN EXAMPLE IN THE BODY OF CHRIST
  • WE SILENCE EVERY VOICE OF THE ENERMY AGAINST CLMI
  • WE UPROOT EVERY SEED OF DISCORD IN CLMI
  • WE SHATTER EVERY PLAN OF THE ENERMY TO SCATTER THE CHILDREN OF CLMI
  • SATAN, THE LORD THAT HAS CHOSEN CLMI REBUKES THEE, BE REBUKED FOREVER IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME
  • WE CALL FORTH THE DAUGHTERS AND SONS OF CLMI FROM WHEREVER THEY ARE SCATTERED, WE CALL THEM FROM THE NORTH, SOUTH, EAST WEST
  • WE WILL SPAEK ACCORDING TO ISAIAH 43: 6 THAT SAYS, I WILL SAY TO THE NORTH, ‘GIVE THEM UP!’ AND TO THE SOUTH, ‘DO NOT KEEP THEM BACK!’ BRING MY SONS FROM AFAR, AND MY DAUGHTERS FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH
  • FATHER, LORD OF HOSTS, HEAL US FROM OUR BACKSLIDINGS, HEAL US FROM THE SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE, HEAL US FROM DISUNITY, RESTORE ALL THE PEOPLE AND ESTABLISH THEM IN CLMI
  • GOD GRANT US THE PATIENCE AND GRACE TO WORK TOGETHER, BRING US ALL TOGETHER AS A FAMILY.
  • LET US WORK TOGETHER WITH UNDERSTANDING AND COMPASSION IN OUR HEARTS.
  • LET US NOT BE RUDE OR ARROGANT TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER, AS WE LIGHT THE WAY TO YOUR HEAVENLY KINGDOM.
  • BIND US WITH CORDS OF LOVE THAT CANNOT BE BROKEN

JOIN HANDS

SONG, BIND US TOGETHER LORD, BIND US TOGETHER WITH CORDS THAT CANNOT BE BROKEN, BIND US TOGETHER LORD, BIND US TOGETHER LORD, BIND US TOGETHER IN LOVE
