Whoa!!! Teaching the DCF elementary tomorrow on the tabernacle and the ark of the covenant. I want to see a generation who abandon themselves before God. A generation who is not afraid to stick out in a crowd because the glory of the Lord is shining upon them. In 1995 I saw a room full of young people and their faces were shining so brightly I was freaking out. I saw a pictire of the future of the glory of God resting on young people’s faces that it was physically visible. I saw a huge stadium filled with children and young people and as the unity of their intercession rose it broke through the ceiling and began to shoot out all over the city of Portland. It broke chains of people in bondage. In that building represented children and youth from every church in the city.
If we hold up walls between churches and denominations and refused to see what God can do through us because of jealousy or bitterness or hurt or disagreements it will hinder the power of God that He wants to release over our city. As pastors and members, if we hold jealousy or bitterness in our hearts towards other churches we will hinder those in our congregation. No matter what happens in relationships we have to keep our hearts pure before God. If we ever get to the point where we are comparing churches between each other and putting one down to lift another up we are damaging the body of Christ. We are his bride! What do you think God feels when we point fingers at each other. Churches are not in the popularity contest business.
We need each other, our city needs us to be in unity to walk in love. For the sake of our children and future generations we need to love each other and walk in unity with a pure heart. As my dad & Pastor Joel Hjertstedt always says, “The one who knows goes”. If you know in your heart there’s something between you and another brother or sister in Christ, or pastor, for the sake of our city, our children and your own spiritual heart please go to them and make it right. We need to stand shoulder to shoulder with each other with clean hands and a pure heart so the fire of God can come down to consume us as a forever burning light for him.
