"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for Brethren to dwell together in

Unity! It is like the precious Ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the

beard, even Aaron (the High Priest's) beard: that went down to the skirts of

his garments; as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion; for there

(in Unity) the LORD COMMANDED the Blessing, even life for evermore."

--Psalm 133

"I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech (appeal for) you that you walk

worthy of the vocation (calling, occupation, profession) wherewith you are

called...forbearing (being mercifully lenient toward) one another in Love;

Endeavoring (zealously attempting) to keep the UNITY of the Spirit in the bond

(adhesive, fastener, covenant) of peace.

"There is ONE Body, and ONE Spirit, even as you are called in ONE Hope of

your calling; ONE Lord, ONE Faith, ONE Baptism, ONE God and Father of ALL, Who

is above ALL, and through ALL, and in YOU ALL!"

--Ephesians 4:1-6

Ephesians 4:6 makes an interesting observation. In Ephesians 4:6 the Word of

God tells us that the "Father...Who is above ALL" (the Highest Authority in

the Universe and the Godhead); lives THROUGH US ALL, AND IS IN ALL OF US. When

most of us think about God living inside us, we think more in terms of the

Holy Spirit. But the Truth of the matter is, the whole Godhead is ONE God. If

you accept Jesus Christ in your heart, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell with His

Spirit of Sonship in us, but that third Person that most Christians overlook

when it comes to God in them, is God the Father, Who is in us and lives through

us ALL, if we are Born-Again.

This means that not only does the Devil and the world's system that wars

against us have to fight against Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in our

lives, but we also have the Spirit of the Father or the Father of all spirits

living in and through us to more greatly enable us to destroy (completely

annihilate) the works of the Devil on behalf of God's Son, Jesus Christ, and the

Church which He was sent by the Father to establish.

The Book of Ephesians says that not only is He (the Father) IN US, but He is

ABOVE ALL!!! In other Words, when the Devil and this world's system fight

against us, not only do they have to contend with God the Son (Who defeated

the world and the Devil) and God the Holy Spirit with all His endowments and

anointed Gifts of the Spirit, but when the Devil and the world contend with us

they are also contending with the Holiness of the Highest Authority of the

Godhead, the Spirit of the Father in US.

Jesus said to the Father in John 17:18, "As You (the Father) have sent Me into

the world, in the same manner I have also sent them into the world (FULLY


"That they all may be ONE; as You, Father, Are in Me, and I Am in You, that

they also may be ONE in Us (UNITED IN THE FATHER AND THE SON): so that the

world may believe (be convinced) that You have sent Me." (vs.21)

In verse 22-23 Jesus goes on to say, "that they may be ONE, even as We Are

ONE: I in them, and You (the Father) in Me, that they may be made PERFECT in

ONE." Jesus said that the Father is in Him, and He (Jesus) is in us, and that

by having this union and fellowship with God the Father and God the Son within

us, that as they are in each other, that we would dwell together with such

unity of the Spirit so that the world can be evangelized and convinced of the

Gospel Message.

In Psalm 133 we learned that where UNITY of the Brethren is, that is where the

Anointing that breaks yokes of bondage flows, and that where UNITY of the

Brethren is, that is where God COMMANDS THE BLESSINGS of the Father. We need

to be more united in Christ Jesus to see a greater commandment of blessings

come upon us in Christ Jesus, so that through Love and Unity of the Spirit we

can reap the End-Time Harvest of souls for Jesus Christ. We can pass out

tracts, build web pages, have television ministries, etc., but without UNITY

there will be no commandment of Blessing upon what we are doing in the Name of

the Lord Jesus Christ!!!

The reason why the Early New Testament Church was so effective and powerful in

turning the World upside down is because of their Unity, "the precious

Ointment upon the Head" (Jesus Christ) "ran down" upon everything they did in

the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

The Word of God in Psalms 133 also states that the Anointing of Unity among the

Brethren is "as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion". Once dew

descends, or if it snows on a mountain, the thing that eventually happens is

the snow begins to melt and water (life-giving substance) begins to increase

the flow of water in the river that will ultimately arrive at its destination.

God has Anointed us so that through the increased flow of unity among the

Brethren we can arrive at our destination. Jesus prayed also that through our

Unity with Him, through the Spirit of the Father and Son in US (I in them, and

You [the Father] in Me), that we would arrive at our destination of being

"made PERFECT in ONE".

In other words, the purpose of our individual Anointing is so that we can live

in unity with one another and increase our corporate Anointing as the

Universal Body (ONE BODY) of Christ, and arrive at our Destination of being


END-TIME HARVEST CAN BE REAPED because the world will be convinced of the

Gospel (Jesus being sent to save them) through our unity with one another,

or our being ONE in Him, God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Unity is the Answer that destroys division within the Body of Christ,

increases the individual and corporate Anointing of every Saint, and every

local gathering's corporate Anointing as well; Unity increases the Bondage-breaking

Anointing of the Universal Church as a whole, and wins the World to Jesus.

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for Brethren to dwell together in

Unity! It is like the precious Ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the

beard, even Aaron (the High Priest's) beard: that went down to the skirts of

his garments; as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion; for there

(in Unity) the LORD COMMANDED the Blessing, even life for evermore."

--Psalm 133

I pray that God will increase our effectiveness, our Love, and our Wisdom to

be more United as Brothers and Sisters in Christ, so that we can see the

Anointing run down upon everything we do in His Name, in Jesus Mighty Name,

and to God be the Glory, AMEN. | Tongues, Unity, & the Last Days Anointing

That's correct. So many times we doubt the ministry of others, because we in

our finite understanding and experience don't know the "other minister" or

"ministry" personally or on a more intimate basis, therefore we doubt the

sincerity of other ministers simply because we are ignorant or lack personal

knowledge of the intimacy that the other person or ministry may genuinely have

with God.

Words of advice to all: Be careful in judging another man or another ministry

representing Christ, especially since you don't know every detail of another

man's life. If you speak against them by judging their different "style" or

different "calling" in ministry, you might find yourself speaking against the

very God who sent him, that you also are supposed to represent.

John said, "We forbad him (to cast out devils in Jesus' Name), because he

followeth not us." Too many ministers are fighting against other ministers

(public radio, etc.), assuming that they are the only true authorities

representing Christ because of their own doctrinal opinions that may differ

from others. They assume that "they" are the authorities of the Church sent to

decide who is and who isn't accurately representing Christ, but what these

people fail to realize, as John learned from Jesus, is that authority to do

anything in Jesus' Name is not given by men, but is by God.

John also said, "he followeth not US." We are not suppose to oppose people

simply because they do not FOLLOW US. What matters is not whether they follow

US or not, but whether or not they FOLLOW JESUS. "We forbid you to do this for

Jesus" and "we reject you because you don't follow US" are probably two of the

biggest reasons why unity does not exist between ministries in the Body of

Christ today. We forbid (oppose) the Eye Ministry to function in Jesus' name

because the Eye doesn't do things the same way that we, The Hand Ministry, do


[1 Cor 12:12-25]

12 For as the body is one and has many members (many individuals, many

individual churches or local assemblies, and many individual ministries), but

all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.

13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body-- whether Jews or

Greeks, whether slaves or free (whether Baptist or Pentecostals, etc.)-- and

have all been made to drink into one Spirit.

14 For in fact the body is NOT ONE MEMBER but many (not one individual, not

one local assembly, not one ministry, not one denomination, etc.).

15 If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is

it therefore not of the body?

16 And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,"

is it therefore not of the body?

17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole

were hearing, where would be the smelling?

18 But now GOD HAS SET (not man) the members (many individuals, many individual

churches or local assemblies, and many individual ministries), each one of

them, in the body just as He pleased (and not as it pleases one man or any

particular denomination).

19 And if they were all one member, where would the body be?

20 But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.

21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; nor again the

head to the feet, "I have no need of you."

22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are


23 And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these

we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty,

24 but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having

given greater honor to that part which lacks it,

25 that there should be no schism (NO DIVISION) in the body, but that THE

MEMBERS (many individuals, many individual churches or local assemblies, and

many individual ministries) SHOULD HAVE THE SAME CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER (or the

same concern about other ministries as they do for their own).


Selfishness and caring about your ministry more than the condition of

surrounding churches is another great reason for division in the Body. We

criticize them instead of offering to help them be more Christlike. Instead

of helping the needy in fellowships not as well established as our own, we are

content to have more than enough and keep it to ourselves.

We need to get in the ministry of helping the ministries of others grow, and

then watch how our own individual ministries grow. We're interested more in

herding, instead of helping the needy, and we call that church growth. If

Churches made it their business to help other local Churches financially,

imagine what examples we'd be to one another PRACTICING THE SAYING THAT it is

more blessed to give than to receive. If we all focused on serving one another

instead of majoring on our differences of opinion, imagine what Love and Unity

in the Body of Christ there would genuinely be!

Imagine Pastors no longer speaking out against the church up the street, and

instead, offering to assist them in any way.

Unity is a choice just like Division is a choice. You can find their faults,

or you can help meet their needs. The choice is ours to do something to end

Division in the Body of Christ TODAY, and everyday.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Brother Randy Muse
