“And the whole earth was of one language and of one accent and mode of expression…And they said to one another, Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly. So they had brick for stone, and slime (bitumen) for mortar. And they said, Come, let us build us a city and a tower whose top reaches into the sky, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over the whole earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, Behold, they are ONE people and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them.” (Genesis 11:1 & 3-6)
This passage of scripture holds a powerful key to gaining the impossible. Unity. Unity of people in words, in purpose and in actions. Even though the people in Babel were building the tower in defiance of God’s authority, the fact that they were in complete unity was enough to bring the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit down to earth to observe it!
The Lord says it Himself, “they are ONE people and they have all ONE language.” This shows how powerful our words are. These people spoke in one accord about this tower and their purpose for building it. They spoke it out and they followed it up with actions. They made bricks and mortar and put their hands to work building that tower.
The Lord saw that they had found the key to the impossible being possible. He said “and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them.” What an incredibly powerful statement God made here! Jesus reiterated this principle for believers when He said “if two or more agree as touching, ANYTHING they ask will be done for them.”
What am I saying? When believers in Jesus Christ grasp this principle and begin to work together to build the Kingdom of God and forget their doctrinal differences, then NOTHING will be impossible for us! We will be like a steam roller through the earth flattening all of Satan’s resistance against us.
Unity is God. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are ONE God. They are so unified they are ONE. Unity excites God like nothing else. When He sees unity among His people, He responds. He moves mountains to make it happen for them!
How can the Body of Christ, with its multitudes of denominations ever come together in unity? It seems impossible, but if only two start to agree and ask God for unity in the Body of Christ…it could start a fire that could blaze across the world.
If we, as individuals found someone to agree with us, we can start it. A unified Body of Christ would be unstoppable and bring in untold millions of souls into the Kingdom of God. And that is the heart of God: SOULS. Go ahead! Light the fire…
