Completeness and Unity



The Lord has been speaking these words to me concerning 2009. Completeness & unity.Then I began to see the jigsaw come together and it was making a picture that could be discerned. It seems to me that in many ways in the transition that we have been in within the Church and within ministries it has caused many to feel disenfranchised and perhaps even a little lost. People react in different ways to change, some react strongly against it. I have observed this over many years and have seen some very strong and very good ministries “spin”out and waste some years in the wilderness.I am saying all this because the transition is almost over and its time to regroup as one man in Christ in total unity of purpose. God has had a plan and he has had all the pieces of the jigsaw in his hand ready to piece it together for an end time harvest of souls and a release of glory never seen before.The word of the Lord is to trust him to bring this jigsaw together in 2009.

Phil 1:6.
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Because at the moment there is a bit of fragmentation in the house Completeness brings unity Every great move of God has one hallmark….Unity “The glory brings unity & unity brings glory”
If we want a richer glory in our lives, God is requiring of us that we walk in His heart on this issue. His family is important to him!
There can be no flow of anointing if there is no flow of unity
Sometimes there are things in our hearts that we don’t even realize have affected us! A dark cloud passes over and we don’t even realise it

Attitudes ~ Prejudices ~ mindsets”
We may not have even dwelt on the matter at all but a shadow has darkened a corner of our soul and the Father wants to free us from it.

There is a power and an anointing that brings His presence in corporate worship…If we want to see His glory we have to come together in unity.

John 17:20-23
“I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me because of their testimony. My prayer for all of them is that they will be one, just as you and I are one, Father—that just as you are in me and I am in you, so they will be in us, and the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are— I in them and you in me, all being perfected into one. Then the world will know that you sent me and will understand that you love them as much as you love me.

We are different:
The body of Christ is made up of many ethnic groups ~ Many cultures many expressions of his glory. But if we want to see the Glory of God we must walk in our diversity and accept our difference and be in unity.

There is a beauty in the wildflowers they have sown on the southern motorway verges. On there own they seem like weeds but together they paint a symphony of colour.The thing about wild flowers is that they just pop up

In these last days of Harvest and glory we will see many new brothers and sisters just pop up! They will be different to you but they are of you. As you are of Him.Your brother thinks different than you, but you both think that Jesus is the answer. Who is right? You both are. You are just a different shape and a different fit to the jigsaw.

Many Pastors and leaders struggle with the shape of the jigsaw pieces that God sends them. And many of the brothers & sisters in the body seem to struggle with the leaders Gods sends them.So we have a problem right there. The people say “I know a better way” and the leaders say “my way or the highway”
its time to work it out.
What does God say?

Ephesians 5:1 -2
Follow God’s example in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ, who loved you and gave himself as a sacrifice to take away your sins. And God was pleased, because that sacrifice was like sweet perfume to him.

Ephesians 4:11-16
He is the one who gave these gifts to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ, until we come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature and full grown in the Lord, measuring up to the full stature of Christ. becoming more and more in every way like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. Under his direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

Why do we have the fivefold gift?
1) To Equip
2) which brings unity
3) Which reveals the Glory of Jesus.

So in 2009 the word of the Lord is Completeness of that which he has started in you.

I see many fragmented ministries in the spirit. They seem to be lacking just a little bit. I see the hand of the Lord bringing in the missing pieces in 2009. Some of those missing pieces won’t look like they fit. You may even recoil in disbelief at the pieces God sends you BUT WHEN YOU LOOK CLOSER YOU WILL SEE HOW THEY FIT.

I see many fragmented relationships in the spirit. Old wounds and old conflict The Lord says in a time of battle and in a time of harvest there is no place for old wounds. I see rapid deliverance and rapid healings as we enter 2009 It could look a little messy but it’s a military hospital not a rest home.

I see areas of unbelief being dealt with very quickly, through revelation and through encounters with the supernatural realm in 2009. Many who have set their faces against the supernatural will be confronted with it in 2009 and have to make a decision. Deliverance is the result I see the Lord dealing a blow to religious spirits and spirits of elitism. BE OPEN TO RECEIVING DELIVERANCE FROM STRONGHOLDS.

I see many being lifted up to a place where they can see the bigger picture, and I see these ones being given gifts to reveal the whole picture. In other words to instil vision for the harvest through unity of purpose. YOU WILL SEE OTHERS IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT

I see huge conflict in the enemy’s camp, power struggles and jealousy in 2009 These struggles will result in tumultuous times in the world.l see the opportunity to bring forward the Kingdom of God in previously unreached places in 2009. The enemies struggles and wars will cause him to try and bring some things in Gods timetable forward. But the wise will stand with the Lord and halt the rising tide till the true time is at hand. BEWARE OF SIDE ISSUES IN 2009

I see floods of glory springing up all over the place in 2009. SO much glory that the enemy won’t know which way to turn The Lord says it can’t be stopped. New realms and new seasons. Its no time to let mindsets stop you seeing the fullness of the Lord. CHECK YOUR MINDSETS

The key words are completeness and unity.
