Unity is formed under the banner of a common cause.  There are many causes in the world today, but your cause must be My Kingdom.  Unite yourself with those who will firmly stand for it.  My Kingdom is an eternal cause.  It is the catalyst of the believer’s purpose.  Let any temporal causes with which you associate catapult the cause of the Kingdom, bringing glory to My Father.  Refuse, though, to exchange My eternal truth, which brings eternal life, for a temporal good that will perish.  Walking in unity will protect you from this pitfall.  Rom. 1:25, “They have exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, by worshipping and serving created things, rather than the Creator – praised be He forever. Amen.” Matt. 5:16, “Let your light shine before people, so that they may see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.” Ps. 133:1,3b, “Oh, how good, how pleasant it is for brothers to live together in harmony…it was there that ADONAI ordained the blessing of everlasting life.”

Press forward!  Despite the heated exchanged taking place in the heavenlies, I have already prevailed and am calling you to press through to the promise I have given you.  Don’t stop!  Persevere with patience to possess the land I have given you, though the enemy would seek to rob you of it all.  Job was not being punished – his righteous living in the midst of darkness made him a target.  The enemy did not prevail then, and will not now.  Stand firm, knowing that I am God, and I am for you, says the Lord.  Rom. 8:31-35,37-39, “If God is for us, who can be against us?  He who did not spare even His Own Son, but gave Him up on behalf of us all – is it possible that having given us His Son, He would not give us everything else, too?  So who will bring a charge against God’s chosen people?  Certainly not God – He is the One who causes them to be considered righteous!  Who punishes them?  Certainly not Christ Jesus, who died and – more than that – has been raised, is at the right hand of God and is actually pleading on our behalf!  Who will separate us from the love of Christ?  Trouble?  Hardship?  Persecution?  Hunger?  Poverty?  Danger?  War?  No, in all these things we are superconquerors, through the One who has loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers, neither what exists nor what is coming, neither powers above nor powers below, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God which comes to us through the Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.”
