Is God Three People? JESUS IS UNIFYING HIS COMMUNITY (6)
Dear Readers: Thank you for all your support this year. I believe the content in this current series is indispensible regarding the coming Great Awakening in America. We must all grow closer to the Lord Jesus. He must be exalted in this nation. His real identity must be known. Christian persecution will continue rising in America in 2016 and we must all be prepared. Please help make this current series reach as many believers as possible. Be blessed!
“When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I AM…” [John 8:28 NAB]
Merry Christmas! During this most wonderful time of the year I must extend to you all a prophetic note.
We know the Lord Jesus taught that His community would be united before His return. In actual effect, it has always been united because whoever is united with the Lord is also united with His community by His Spirit. There still remains the process, however, of meeting one another as members. This coming together is happening right now in America, but it is being powerfully opposed.
There are certainly forces against His community, but I must tell you that despite persecution from the world, the world is not the divider of the Lord’s community. When under attack, the Lord’s people rally together to each other’s defense and do whatever must be done to help each other.
We see this playing out perfectly in the Lord’s original community in Jerusalem. They truly represented the spirit of Christmas by their incredible giving and love. Needs were met and everyone was blessed!
Those who destroy community, on the other hand (and you know who they are), have a decided tendency to always shoot their wounded, slander them, and cast them out as worthless in defense of their unholy turf and false agendas. They act out of hate, not love.
RATHER THAN CRUCIFY THEIR FLESH THEY CRUCIFY THE LORD AFRESH.
No, the attempt to divide the Lord’s people has always arisen from within. Who is the opposer?
Unreal Christianity is the responsible party. I could tell you so many stories to prove this, but most of you have your own stories and already know it. Many churches and ministries, due to certain failures, false doctrines, and hidden hateful attitudes are filled with far too many tares, goats, and wolves in sheep’s clothing. It even happened to the Lord, of course.
Judas was one of the Lord’s own, and it is the JUDAS SPIRIT that is often responsible for breaking up everything the Lord God wants to be united.
I will be writing more about this in future posts in order to help you identify what is causing all the problems, but there is one thing you must know before we proceed:
Persecution from without unifies the Lord’s community and makes it strong. Persecution from within destroys it. There are some very evil and sinful people who are masquerading as Christians. They have their own selfish and rebellious agendas. They do these things largely because they pretend to know the Lord Jesus or think they know the Lord Jesus but do not.
And because they do not know the Lord and have no knowledge of His true identity, they have no way of identifying real Christians and thus oppose them, exactly as Judas did.
“They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God. These things they will do because they have not known the Father or Me.” [John 16:2-3]

I have sometimes thought, that the “church’ is the most dangerous place for a Christian to be”.

Thanks Scarlett. You are right though the term “church” must be specified.
Many years ago in my early years I learned of the concept of “The Church Within the Church.” It referred to what I later termed “Real Christians” within a larger geographic assembly which also included “Unreal Christians.” I coined the latter term to designate ALL “Christians” who never fulfilled the requirements of membership in the Lord’s one Community.
Of course, the Lord Jesus also broke it down to two groups. He referred to them variously as “Wheat and Tares,” “Sheep and Goats,” etc. There is no question that the Wheat and the Sheep must watch out for the Tares and the Goats. They can certainly be dangerous and used of the devil and are bewitching primarily because they are hidden behind a false veil of righteousness.
The world says, “All That Glitters is Not Gold.” The Lord said the same thing using different terms, phraseology, and allegorical stories and parables.
One doesn’t have to judge others to know they are clearly violating the Lord’s teachings. The Lord never “judged” the Pharisees or He would have been violating His own commands. He simply observed their behavior and especially noted their hatred of Him, though He was never guilty of their false accusations.
He also warned His disciples to watch out for fake believers:
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. But beware of men, for they will hand you over to the courts and scourge you in their synagogues…” [Matthew 10:16-17]
Many Real Christians have been scourged in “churches” by Unreal Christians. This scourging by fake believers must be acknowledged, brought into the light, and revealed so other Christians are not attacked as well and so that the fakers can be exposed.
Even so, we must also obey the following:
“But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you…” [Luke 6:27-28]

Great truth shared. Hidden hateful attitudes are the ones that seem to attack me often. Looking forward to reading more on this topic!
Thank you. Merry Christmas!
