Unity among different faiths… really with different spirits… will save us. I’ve heard this for years.
How well has it worked?
Are some current headlines or content, in the span of a couple of weeks, an indicator?
And I could go on with child abuse… gender confusion/delusion… same-sex destruction… immorality—all activity that is hostile towards the language of… I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore… I will place them, and multiply them… in God’s promises to Abraham and the New Covenant of peace made with the House of Israel and the House of Judah (Genesis 12:2-3; 13:16; 22:17-18; Ezekiel 11:17-20; 34:23-26; 36:24-28; 37:12-14,25-28; Jeremiah 31:31-33). And… who do you think gets the last word in the matter… God’s created man or the all powerful, all supreme, the only God—the God of Israel? These are the promises and the Covenant the Jew and Gentile Saints… the Body of Christ… the Church… share in through the Savior… the Redeemer… the Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrews 8:1,6-9; Galatians 3:16-18,28-29 ; Ephesians 1:17-19; Colossians 1:11-13; Romans 11).
What caused me to stop traveling down the road to destruction… alienated from God and His promises and the New Covenant (and the Bible says so), the True Gospel was/is preached. There is the True Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who keeps us from going to eternal torment so we can spend Eternity in His presence with a redeemed mind… heart… soul—Eternal Life… Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.
To feed the hungry and clothe the poor is not helping them without also truly feeding the hungry with the Gospel of God’s Kingdom… His Word… so the “poor in spirit” can be clothed with Christ’s robe of righteousness. Without the Gospel… humanitarian works and signs and wonders, for their own sake… are powerless… worthless… resulting in no justification of ourselves before God—our sins are not forgiven and cleansed from our account before the Great White Judgment Throne of God (Revelation 20:10-15).
26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. John 6
17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6
3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word. 4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. 5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. 11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. 12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. 19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. 21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. 22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. 23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously. Isaiah 24
