At one time we were part of the world’s problems. We lived alienated and separated from others around us. Deep down at our roots we were selfish and greedy, manipulating others for our own profit and pleasure. Now, the deepest root of the world’s problems, self-will, is being cured, and the ugly diseases that feed from it are being eliminated.
We are becoming part of the solution. As prophesied, God is building a tribal nation made up of many communities that God is building. The life expressed there strikes at the root of the oppression and injustice which plague the world. We are no longer trying to hammer away at the superstructure in order to find some remedy for society’s ills. For such superficial measures have long ago proven ineffective.
The solution is radical. True change can only occur where God’s Spirit of love and unity actually dwells in people. Not only the external problems of man can be dealt with, but also the deep inner struggles caused by guilt and rejection. God’s life is the solution — the balm which soothes and heals the deepest wounds.
For God hears the prayer of the destitute, the needy, the comfortless, and the friendless. He has never despised their prayers. He makes a home for the lonely. No one need dwell in a parched land of alienation and division, caught up in the daily disintegration of basic human relationships. God searches the earth to find men from every nation who want a way out of the chaos, and He welcomes them.
The human race is meant to be made whole again. Outside of God’s love it cannot be done. Only here can we be perfected, renewed, and restored in unity. Each person, each part of the whole, is necessary, making what was incomplete whole. Each member is derushah (sought out; necessary) to complete his household within the communities of this tribal nation.
Living in loneliness means that you are still a part of the problem. You are divided, alienated, and disconnected from the people of God, who are ONE. There is no alienation or division among His people. Instead, they are experiencing the restoration of basic human relationships. Their marriages, families, and friendships are being healed.
Spiritual unity is a ONENESS which is expressed both outwardly and inwardly. The world must be able to see this unity. If it is invisible, no one will be able to see it or believe in it. If the world does not see it, they will never believe that God sent His Son to bring an end to the problem, or that He even desires to make man whole again.
My prayer is ... that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in Me and I am in You. May they also be in Us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me. I have given them the glory that You gave Me, that they may be one as We are one. I in them and You in Me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me. (John 17:21-23)
Christian denominations are the antithesis (the opposite) of the oneness that Messiah prayed for.
Inward unity that does not express itself outwardly is futile. Outward unity that does not express itself through inward unity is an empty husk. The walls of hostility, that divide people must be removed from among those in Messiah. He prayed for unity in His Father’s purpose. Once inward unity is expressed outwardly, the world (which sees only outward things) will know that God sent the Son. When the world sees this unity, all mankind will know that Yahshua ha Mashiyach is its source. He is the root from which the good tree, His holy nation, grows and flourishes.
