With the election over and the winner chosen to be the next president much division and hatred comes along with it. Many people want peace and unity and proclaim it loud and clear with angry protest and cry me a river style addresses. Politicians state the same thing with promises of uniting the country and bringing peace throughout. But we must understand that there is no peace or unity apart from Christ.
“For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.” (1 Corinthians 12:12 NKJV).
The world proclaims and sets out a detailed plan of unity with some of it making much sense. Their plan is so convincing, so that even Christians fall for this “let’s fix it ourselves apart from Christ” type of mentality, which ultimately is the worlds way of thinking. We must understand that the devil is behind this scene with his falsified plan of peace and unity. The devil is a copy cat and a deceiver with a plan of destroying people and pulling Christians away from a reliance on God to a place of self-reliance.
No matter how elaborate or unique the plan of the world may seem, it will never work or it will work only for a short time, and here is why. The Bible states that the end times will come with a flood by being preceded by the worlds claim of “peace and security.” We must understand that the Antichrist plan will be a promotion of peace, security and unity. But there is a catch to this, the unity part is a unity of the world and it’s values and religion itself will be abolished entirely.
As much as we want a “Disney World” type of society and world system, we must keep in mind that this will not occur UNTIL the return of Christ and no sooner. The unity that the world proclaims is a false unity, a unity of worldly values and the new world religion that is soon to come and has already been revealing itself through celebrities and politicians alike.
We must not get caught up in the scheme of the devil and his partner the world, and instead keep our sights set on Christ and proclaim only Him to the lost world around us. There is no healing apart from Christ. There is no other foundation that can bring unity in diversity other than Christ. If we want peace and unity, we must proclaim Christ and Christ only. No system, person, group, or set of rules or regulations will bring unity, but only the One in which peace and unity dwells.
“And they sang a new song, saying: ‘You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth.'” (Revelations 5:9-10).
Regardless of race, gender, or intelligence, we are all one in the body of Christ for those that believe in Christ. The Holy Spirit is the bonding glue that holds us together and helps us set aside the difference that may affect our unity. Jesus will bring unity by expelling the non-united ones that are apart from Christ, and then establishing His eternal kingdom here on earth.
“But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.” (Daniel 7:18).
The way in which this unity will present itself is by the fact that all peoples at that time will be united with the same foundation that is Christ and any differences between people will be minor roles that are unique to each individuals personalities and character. We will all follow the same Law which is God’s. We will all praise the One that saves and we will all love each other’s imperfections as we will respect our own imperfections with our focus set on the only One that is perfect.
This my friend is true unity, an eternal unity. Let’s unify together in Christ and then proclaim Christ to the lost souls that the world has deceived and show them the peace and unity of the Almighty God we serve. God bless!
