BEING ONE IN CHRIST JESUS AND GOD ALMIGHTY.
“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity”John17:22-23.
“For we must all reach to the measure and degree of when we can Love through Him and See through Him, for in Him we find Love, Life and entire existence of our being because He so near to us not far away from each one of us.”
Greetings with great joy from the deepest of my heart to all who are elect in Christ Jesus the only Savior of the world and God. I received a request from one of the brothers in Christ Jesus called Moses Munyes and him being part of the body of Christ who asked and requested me to write about “being One in Christ Jesus” Oneness in Christ” and to me I perceived that Holy Spirit wanted Me to deliver this message to his children and to all the believers in the world who have come to the knowledge the only True God and Christ Jesus the Savior God.
To me, the church has been divided today through deception, manipulation, betrayal, hypocrisy by either the brothers and Sisters in Christ or by the Shepherds of the church, or prophets who seem to have been called by God, but later to find out that they are not actually called by God himself perceiving and discerning them through fruits of the flesh they produce and their Love for the World and passion to gain much from the world has disappointed the children of God, and this has led many to emulate most of them, and so with time they get broken off from the Stem and later get thrown away and none of these come to the knowledge of the truth. The proceedings are, people get muddled with jaundiced feelings towards Christ Jesus even to the extent of making our dear Lord the Prince of Peace, King of Kings who died and resurrected to be a liar because what He said is not what our brothers and Sisters are actually reflecting through deeds and works of Faith in Him.
Jesus Christ’s prayer in John17 is the greatest of all times and ever written about, Jesus Christ’s focus was how His believers and followers can be in HIM and Be in the Father as Jesus Christ is in the Father and also the Father in Jesus Christ, and of course those words are filled with profound wisdom, knowledge, insight, experience, Truth, Love, Hope, Faith, not just words, He repeated himself almost from the start to the end of His prayer to the disciples and that meant His emphasis and confirmation of How wants His followers can take His example how He works with His Father and in the same way we can emulate His demonstration of His Fathers love towards to him and Him towards us. You can see in the scripture that Jesus Christ in motivated by the Love of God in him, and How the Love of God brings oneness in him and to the believers.
“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. John17:24.
Jesus Christ in His prayer for the believers reminds God His Father of His unending Love before creation of this world, God’s Love existed before creation, and still the same and Jesus Christ give thanks to God in the presence of the disciples to show them what Love can do and how it can bring Oneness in Christ and of course God, in Jesus Christ prayer you see He has a great and unbreakable relationship with God. The Father being in him gave him great joy and inspiration, that He could not do anything minus the knowledge of God, from the start of His prayer, He gives a report that Father I have brought Glory on earth by finishing the Work you gave Me. Jesus Christ point is that he wanted to show us that we must be responsible to work hand in hand with God for the better Finish and He must send us, we should never send ourselves, and must be chosen to do God’s work so that we can give a report, a person who appoints himself has no one to report to and therefore that shows you are not one with God and He has no idea of what you are doing so accomplishment not His Power and the Holy Spirit but by your efforts. There is a great punishment for self-appointment.
Jesus Christ demonstrates how He was one with God, God in him and him in God, and that’s what He wants us to do as His followers, this oneness in him must create joy in us not because we labor for him, because He has loved us to produce fruits of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ wants a complete unity of His brethren, for Jesus Christ is not even ashamed of calling us His brethren, for the scriptures say somewhere like this:
“In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. He says,
“I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters; in the assembly I will sing your praises.” And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again he says,
“Here am I, and the children God has given me.”
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.” Hebrews2; 10-17.
One of the tasks, that Jesus Christ came to do is to bring his family together by breaking the fear of death by the Devil Caused through Power of Sin that people are free from that Fear to come together and the Family is the Church filled with God’s Children who have accepted Jesus Christ to be part of His Body in order to come out of bondage without Jesus Christ in us there is no True Love, The Love of God should be motivating tool that should make us as believers to dwell and pass through the bondages not withholding the shadows of death surrounding, the death of Christ is meant to separate us from the world and its passion, if the Love for the world dies in us then we are able to Love truly, and faithfully, then we are able to be one with God, God is not of the world nor Jesus Christ be, If the Love for the world is in us then the True Love of God is corroded and always will fail and shrink away, Yet we know the true Love of God does not fail, it must lead us to the cross and carry the death of Him who shed the Blood on the cross just like He did, He is breaking that barrier that cannot make you be one with him: For He boldly says:
“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified. John17; 13-19.
The world should tremble and be driven out by the Love and the death of Christ Jesus Christ on the Cross. The world hastes the unity and completeness of Christ in the believers because Jesus Christ testifies of It by His Word, the death, burial and resurrection from the dead, the world does not Love those 3 words above they are complete Truth, and the truth is that God is one with Christ, because they worked together to defeat the Devil through on the Cross in order to bring a great Salvation to many. His prayer is emphasized on the protection from the Evil one, The Devil is filled the world and wants to spread it to the ones God drew out of the world of Jesus Christ, the world is not just an oval shape but the evil political systems, and the surroundings of life styles that God has not created or ordained, and those are the many surrounding humanity which causes destruction, betrayal, Sin and if not mistaken they cause hatred amongst the believers and this kills the oneness of Christ wants to accomplish in us through his death on cross.
In Christ there dwells Godhead in a bodily form which must be manifested just as Jesus Christ demonstrated, Jesus Christ knew that this Oneness would not be an easy task for humanity and so He mentions the coming of the Holy Spirit in fullness in outpouring who will lead us and to those who believe in Him who destroyed the Power of death and brought many to God and himself, The work of the Holy Spirit is to advocate, help, convict, intercede, and He is the breath of God, His Authority is unquestionable, He came to inspire many in Christ, lead many to Jesus Christ, in him we are able to connect to the Oneness of God which is hidden in Christ Jesus Our Lord, He is the Airtime we have to continue calling on God through Jesus Christ to keep connected to the Oneness of God, the Holy Spirit dwells in those who have repented and have also put their Faith in Christ Jesus by the Means of the Word of God, He quickens the word and builds the Love of God in us to live a godly life not life of ecstasy and then we obtain the Eternal life by Knowing the only True God and Jesus Christ who bears witness in the conscience of us in the Holy Spirit.
The regenerated will be one in God and in Christ because the Holy Spirit is the active agent both in re-birth and redemption, before redemption takes place there must be a regeneration and it’s the only way you can be one with God even by keeping the commandments of God, for Jesus Christ came to put away Sin the obstacle to salvation and the Holy Spirit is the master mind of convicting of all unrighteousness, if there are still in the Life of a Christian then it might be hard to be one with Christ Jesus knowing that in Him there is no darkness at all, if you hate someone then you are not being one with Christ just He loved us and died for the ungodly when no one would. The Love of God must be reached at the level of when we can be like His Son both through Deeds, works of Faith for Gave, He fed, he taught, and mourned and all these were out of Faith, and that God desired, so we must be taught in him not how the world teaches, if we resemble the world and those whom the world has covered then God is not glorified, if we demonstrate the death of Jesus Christ in us then we are one with Him, for He died to the world and so the world, in deeds and works of the Faith, Spiritually or in the flesh, we must carry along the death of Jesus Christ in our mortal bodies.
Jesus Christ wants oneness to himself alone and God, but also to the believers as one that’s when the world can testify that surely God is amidst this people, you cannot be one with God Yet you are a living a reckless life that does not benefit God and His Church, all the acts must be godly measured to the standard of God, and the Holy Spirit bears witness of this in our conscience. Selfishness today is one of the drivers in the church today, it has brought this saying I live to survive and therefore do not care how they live to survive even defrauding their brothers and Sisters in order to survive, the church is filed with rage, revenge, manipulation, and of course bitterness, The believers carry their Fathers or Mothers characters or even Pastors and still have hope of making it to Heaven, the Bible wants Christ alike people and Heaven has no place for those who are not willing to Live in the Love of Christ and live in the Love of Christ is die to the world though you are living in the world. Imagine people have changed the gospel now to revenge gospel, people today get saved to fight against those who did bad things to their Lives, I found a few being motivated by the Love of God to drive out the world out of them and be like He who is not of the world. John writes on this to bring out the purpose of God in a Christian life, Love for the world is not coming from God but from the Evil one and from the world.
“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” 1John2; 15-17.
For we become complete in Him He that died and Rose again when obey His Word. His Word must be completed in us both in Faith, Spirit, and in the deed. Then we are truly walking in His footsteps. If the pastor is leading you to Love the world and focus you on the worldly desires, then he is not in the Love of the Father, The Mighty one Jesus Christ and therefore you are not being one In Him and Him in You.
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts”Colossians3:10-11.
Love binds all the fruits of the Holy Spirit together in a perfect unit, if then fruits lack Love a midst them, the peace of Christ Jesus may not be in You, the peace opens the gates of Love to live in Christ, when we speak of Love, we speak of the Love that’s separates us from the world. We may live together and work together but if that Love does not separate Us from the world then it’s not pure Love of God, this love makes us accept the way God has made His people Not in selfishness of working to be seen but the work of God may be seen and speak of itself in YOU.
Love is not just a word of Four letters, when you speak of Love, it must be demonstrated in You and with it you have been separated from the world in Live one in Christ and God, of course we may profess and wear façade face at the church thinking we are in the Love of God and His Oneness Yet we are simply justifying our selfish desires in what we do , to the believers we become one when we come together and have a mind of Christ towards one another and the Holy Spirit must be operating in us, we are motivated by His Love not that God has warned but we Love to be with HiM with all our hearts, and this is the work of God not Yourself, Because it is God who worketh in you for His purpose and pleasure that His Glory will be revealed in the earth covered upon in Christ Jesus.
As long as you are still hoping in yourself and your hope, trusting in yourself and Faith is not in Christ and God, the Sin still operating in You and you have not Yet reached repentance, If you are living in accordance of your perception, Tastes and preferences, then You are not One in HIM and HIM in YOU, and therefore You are living in desert not a godly purposed Heavenly Home, the one where all are complete and make a dine with You. God should have Mercy on Us. Being one with God and Christ is that you are being directed by them through the Holy Spirit.
For we must all reach to the measure and degree of when we can Love through Him and See through Him, for in We find Love, Life and entire existence because He so near to us not far away from each one of us. Our eyes are filled with darkness and that has become an obstacle, we seem to believe the world exist not knowing its passing away not real. We forget the true picture and the real world in Christ Jesus which is true. The church must reach the fullness of Christ and be completed in him, in him we find the real world not the physical world, the physical deceives us and makes our eyes so dim which gives us a distorted View of How Jesus Christ sees the world, our eyes see and admire the world that we see around us, and then Jesus Christ sees only death, eternal torment in the world around us, How can we be one in HIM and with HIM?
Dear Brethren, I have sent this letter of consolation to Heal your hearts, to those who believe in Christ Jesus the Lord of Heaven and the earth, by His Love we are motived and can not be separated from it, not even death, Angels, not even the best things in the world can take away this Love of God in Me through Him that gave himself for us and also to take away the sins of the world, for in Him we find redemption and forgiveness of sins by the shed of blood on the cross. Therefore let His Love separate us from the world so that we can be one in Him and in them, by the Holy Spirit, who gives us the Power and enables us to cry the Name of Jesus Christ with Love and we are able to be called the children of the Most High God, the Creator of the heavens and the Earth, who can separate us from His Love? Please as we draw near to the End when the times of fulfillment coming to an end, Faith of Many has gone cold, I pray for thee, that God may outpour his unending love in your hearts by the Holy Spirit so that it remains till the end, and we shall remain In him if we obey His commandments and obey His word.
Peace to you all the elect and the grace of God be multiplied to you until the Day of our Lord Jesus Christ, the joy shall filled in us when we see him and His Bodily form Just as His before Creation of this world.
Endure for the sake of the children of God, and we also endure for Christ’s sake and for your sake’s that the Love of God and the Life Christ may continue with you until the Day of Jesus Christ.
I also Asher Namanya the fellow labourer in the Word of Truth and the Gospel, whether in Word or in the deed, the Grace of God is not in vain or without effect in Me. Peace to you all and keep oneness of Christ and of God in YOU.
