Early in the morning upon awakening, there was a message in my heart for the body of Christ. The Lord impressed me that His eye is on the love of the body of Christ for one another. The Lord, himself gave this commandment to all believers.
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, If you have love for one another." John 13:34-35
The Lord said to me, "Sound an Alarm for the body of Christ" It is time to unite around the cross of Christ. It is time to find level ground at the feet of the Savior's Lordship. It is time to form an army for the Lord who will not break ranks. It is not time to allow God's household to be divided, but rather to stand together in purity and unity of heart and spirit. It is time to stand up strong beside your brothers and sisters in the Lord. Stand beside them, fight for them, fight with them, and lift your shield of faith before those who are battle worn and those weary in hope deferred. Put your life on the line for your brothers and sisters. Lift your sword against the enemy for your brother and not against him. Go rescue those who have slipped and fell into snares and traps set by the enemy with humility of heart. Pray for those who have lost their way and rescue those who have strayed from the path as if they were God's priceless treasure, because they are. Have genuine love and release compassion for those of the household of faith.
There are issues in the family of God that must be dealt with as they are properly discerned but stop sitting in the seat of judge and jury toward the household of faith and be willing to take correction and discipline for your own selves. It is easier to see the failures of others than it is your own. Pray for spiritual discernment, which is pure only as one walks in truth and love. Stop deceiving your own selves, to save yourself. You must love the truth even when it hurts you. You open doors to deception if you do not love the truth. You blind yourselves with a veil of self-righteousness if you have to always be right. Put your energies for revolution against the right enemy and rescue your friend, your neighbor, and your brother. Seducing spirits and doctrines of devils are heavy upon us trying to take influence with believers who give any place for them to work. Don't stand and throw more dirt over them, but get in the pit with them and help them get out to freedom. Travail for your brothers and sisters who are oppressed and deceived by the enemy.
John the apostle writes in I John 3:16-18, "By this we know love because He laid down his life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whosoever has this worlds goods and sees his brother in need and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth."
Take a stand for your godly leaders in the Lord and cover them, carry them, and lift up their arms for the battle rages. Many leaders cannot make it without true amour-bearers to stand unmovable along side them. Leaders must have the courage to faithfully surrender their heart for the Lord to search and reveal any wickedness. Leaders must also have the courage to correct others in humility and godliness. The God appointed leaders among the church are fighting some of their "hardest ever" battles to take the church forward into a new season of rapid advancement of the Kingdom of God.
Who is God's family? It is those who do the will of God, says the Lord. (Matt. 12:48-50) God loves His family; they are His pearl of great price. They are the body of His Son Jesus Christ on the earth. The Father is watching those who name the name of Christ. He knows those who are His. He is purging His own, placing the pure and spotless garment on for a wedding. The Father is ready to crown His own with crowns of His Holiness to prepare the way of the Lord. Jesus is here to prevail in His body and He is coming as the sovereign Lord on the earth. It is an hour to arise to an overcoming love for your brother and sister, your mothers and your fathers in the Lord. Out of this love for our God and His family comes the great grace and power of His love for the harvest of the earth.
His love never fails! His love is perfect love and has no fear in it.
Let us remember, without His love we are nothing and profit nothing.
"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And thought I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love it profits me nothing." I Corinthians 13: 1-3
