Good morning! Grace and peace to you in abundance from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!
Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of divided.
Ezekiel 37 v22 There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms.
This is God's plan of making all who believe in Jesus Christ by receiving the new person inside us, the Holy Spirit, and by Him we all will be one Kingdom with one Lord, one Shepherd that is King over all of us, which makes us His universal church! He uses the vision He gave Ezekiel to represent all of us as the dry bones in our natural selves but by having Faith in His Spirit of holiness given to us we will all truly come alive! We will be living the life He has planned for us by our will being His will for our lives. By us having faith in all of His promises He has planned for us through eternity! We live by the Spirit of God that is within us we will truly live. (Ezekiel 37v14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken and I have done it, declares the LORD.) As long as we are living in our natural selves without believing in Jesus Christ we will be divided. There will be people with dry bones and there will be people with bones that come to life by His Spirit of truth. We who truly believe will be living by the Holy Spirit and our kingdom, His kingdom, will never be divided. We will all be in agreement praising Him in one mind and Spirit glorifying Him with all we have! We who do not truly believe will be recognized by those who do. We who live by the Spirit will recognize them for His reason of bringing them to knowing His love and power not condemning them, but not compromising our devotion to Him. We will have faith in Him has our one shepherd by the Spirit within us, we will be faithful and know His love for us because what He knows we will know. We know and believe it is an everlasting covenant because of the Holy Spirit within us. This is the Kingdom of God; those that trust in Him and live by the Holy Spirit through His righteousness given to them and glorify His power! (Romans 14v17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.) Only do we do all we do through the power of the Holy Spirit, this is who leads our Kingdom. (Romans 15v19 by the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit. So from Jerusalem, all the way are to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ.) Are we living in His kingdom because we have received the gift of the Holy Spirit through His Son Jesus Christ, one Lord and one King with an undivided Kingdom? I love everyone with the love God gives me for you! Read Ezekiel 37 and Romans 14 and 15.
