The calls for unity are growing louder by the day. Almost every religion and belief system on the planet is now seeking some form of unification to heal the ills of society. Apparently social division, poverty, disease, and even “climate change” can be healed if all people just put their beliefs aside and unite for the greater good of humanity.
Make no mistake, God doesn’t want a broken world. He doesn’t enjoy the current pain and suffering that is the human condition. He takes no joy in evil and it’s not His will that any should perish. After all, what is the gospel? Is it not the good news? Is it not a tremendous gift that our Heavenly Father sent His only begotten Son as a living sacrifice to pay the price for all of humanity’s sin?
This is why the calls for unity are so troubling. The apostate church is unifying with the harlot Roman Catholic (universal) church, and now with ALL other religions to promote world peace and social justice. In doing so, the gospel is trampled under foot. In their calls for unity, many are believing that we are all praying to the same God and making Jesus’ sacrifice of no effect. There is only a small remnant on this earth that believe and understand that Jesus is Lord and that no one comes to the Father but by Him.
These false teachers love to quote from John 17 in which Jesus is praying that believers would be as one as Jesus and the Father are one. To any born again Christian who knows the Word of God this is an obvious manipulation of scripture to further an agenda of ecumenism.
I was reading the whole prayer in John 17 today when this one verse in particular stood out to me as a glaring contradiction to the ecumenical movements’s twisting of scripture. In verse 17 Jesus says “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” You see, Jesus is praying for the unity and sanctification of believers through the truth of God’s Word. God’s Word declares over and over that Jesus is Lord. The ecumenical movement cannot unite around the truth found in scripture. Jesus is the missing ingredient in their calls for unity. That is how you know these people are not of God.
Even though the tide of lies and deception is rising against us, stand strong on the promises in God’s Word. Antichrist is rising, but Jesus is coming soon! Don’t be found worshipping the false god of the coming one world religion. Look up for your redemption draweth nigh!
