The greatest weapon in the arsenal of any people group is “Agreement,"
Genesis 11:1-9 - At one time all the people of the world spoke the same language and used the same words. 2 As the people migrated to the east, they found a plain in the land of Babylonia and settled there. 3 They began saying to each other, “Let’s make bricks and harden them with fire.” (In this region bricks were used instead of stone, and tar was used for mortar.) 4 Then they said, “Come, let’s build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world.” 5 But the Lord came down to look at the city and the tower the people were building. 6 “Look!” he said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! 7 Come, let’s go down and confuse the people with different languages. Then they won’t be able to understand each other.” 8 In that way, the Lord scattered them all over the world, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why the city was called Babel, because that is where the Lord confused the people with different languages. In this way he scattered them all over the world.
Tower of Babel - “United People" Nothing will be impossible.
Acts 2:1- On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place.
The Upper Room - “They were all together."
Jonah 3:10 - When God saw what they had done and how they had put a stop to their evil ways, he changed his mind and did not carry out the destruction he had threatened.
Nineveh - “When God saw what they did”.
Every adversary seeks to exploit opportunities to erode unity as a means to an end.
Disunity is not the end result. It is a mechanism to:
- Weaken collective resolve
- Distract from the true enemy
- Undermine the mission.
The gravitational pull of the fallen condition is always toward discord. Unity cannot be assumed or left unsupervised. It must be actively preserved.
Unity is legacy
Christ is the model
Revival is the result
