Genesis 11:1-6 reads:
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one accent and mode of expression.2 And as they journeyed eastward they found a plain (valley) in the land of Shinar,and they settled and dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly. So they had brick for stone, and slime (bitumen) for mortar.4 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.5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men had built.6 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. (Amplified)
Let us look at what was going on with these people. First they were in agreement in their thinking and speaking and actions(verse 1 and 6).They had the same goal (verse 4). They had a plan with corresponding actions(verse 3).These people were in perfect agreement, the only wrong thing in the sight of God was their motive which was for their glory. .Still what they were doing was going to work because they were using the biblical principle of unity. God said because they were one what they were doing was going to work because they are unified in thinking, speaking , and acting. This was God guaranteeing their success because it was his principle they were using, he had to confuse their language. This is awesome, the God of the Universe guaranteeing your success because you are using his principle. Let us look at how we could apply this principle.
What is necessary for the system to work is:
* Everybody speaking the same thing(speaking God's Word)
* Having the same goal (getting out of debt or increase income)
* Having the same plan with corresponding actions(Faith Projects)
* Having the right motive(advance the Kingdom)
* Having the same mind(knowing God's will)
* Everybody must benefit(team concept:unity/agreement)
* Must be doable and affordable(counting the cost, )
I am looking for a group of saints who are like minded. We will apply this to the internet. Please let me know what you think. Also let me know if you would like to participate?
