These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
IN OUR CHAPTER TODAY WE ARE TOLD OF how the kings of the earth joined forces with the beast and the whore to accomplish the evil intentions of Satan.
One thing here is the fact that without oneness of mind and purpose a group can accomplish very little, if anything at all.
Their purpose was to make war with the Lamb of God (our Blessed Lord Jesus).
And in other for them to put out a formidable force and resistance against the Lamb, they had to unify; they became of one mind, and joined forces. They gave up their authority and strength to the beast.
Of course all their powers put together and that of a million others more will make no difference. For unto the Lamb belongs all power, glory, dominion and might.
Theirs was an exercise in futility!
Our focus here is on the application of the principle.
It is amazing to see that when it came to accomplishing a purpose even the powers of darkness know that unity of mind is the key.
We can only accomplish very little when every one is walking in self will and interested in their one thing! That attitude will not help the advancement of the gospel.
This is the reason why again and again in the scriptures we are admonished to be of one mind.
Romans 15:6 “ That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
2 Corinthians 13:11 “ Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind”
Philippians 1:27 “with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”
Philippians 2:2 “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”
1 Peter 3:8 “Finally, be ye all of one mind,”
These are not suggestions, they are commands. We are commanded to be of one mind!
All these is in order for us to accomplish the task of subduing this world with the gospel of our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ.
The ONLY way to get this job done is for us all to be of one mind. Dissent will be a disservice. Strife will be evil. Disagreements will not help the work of the gospel. Asking stupid questions that engender strife will not help!
It is unfortunate that many of God’s children pride themselves as dissenters, they are always having contrary opinions, they are always disagreeing. They don’t know Satan is trying to use them to hinder the advancement of the gospel.
We must all be of one mind!
Even evil spirits know this, how much more the children of light.
There is no other way to get this job done!
Make up your mind to be a helper of the work!
Learn to be of one mind for the advancement of the cause of the gospel of our Blessed Lord!
To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings!
