Genesis 11:5-8 “The Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people had built. The Lord said, “Now these people are in one accord (united) all speaking in one language.  This is only the beginning of what they will do.  They will be able to do ANYTHING they want.”  (The Answer Bible)

What all can they do? Answer: ANYTHING! Please body of Christ, listen!  Because these people were of one accord (united) God said, THEY WILL BE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING THEY WANT.  He didn’t say this because he was scared; He said it because He wanted to make a point.  What was the point you ask?  (That you can do anything, when you are united.)  If you want to change what the enemy is doing GET IN ONE ACCORD!  I know sometimes it seems like the army of enemies is JUST too BIG.  Just take a look at what happened for Judah through Jehoshaphat.

II Chronicles 20:15b “Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of this large army. The battle is not your battle, the battle is Gods.  Just stay strong in your places, and you will see the Lord.”(tab)

II Chronicles 20:11 “But see how they repay us for not destroying them! They came to force us out of Your land, which you gave us as your own.  (12) Our God, punish those people.  We have no power against this large army that is attacking us.  We don’t know what to do, so we look to You for help. (tab)

II Chronicles 20:21-22 “Have faith in the Lord your God, and you WILL stand strong. Have faith in His prophets, and you will succeed.   (21) Jehoshaphat listened to the people’s advice.  Then he chose men to be singers to the Lord, to praise Him because He is holy and wonderful.  As they marched in front of the army, they said, Thank the Lord, because His love continues forever.  (22) As they began to sing and praise God, the Lord sent ambushes for the people of Ammon, Moab, and Edom who had come to attack Judah. And they were defeated.” (tab)

I’d like to respond to verse 11. But see how they repay us for not destroying them!  We continue to let vast sin take over the airwaves, and we do nothing about it and now it is rampant.  Television commercials years ago of women wearing underwear were made and look how it has taken over now. We bring 1,000’s of Muslims over here and they crash planes into buildings, chop off people’s heads and more and we keep letting them come and we are not destroying them!

God’s prophets told the people of Judah that the battle would not be theirs, but the battle was God’s. He WILL fight for those who believe in Him.  He WILL fight for those who join together as scripture tells us; Where 2 or 3 are gathered together in Him, He would be in the midst.  Also, when they join together they should be of one accord.  Look who led the army for the fight.  It wasn’t the ones with weapons, but the singers who marched in front and sang praise to God.  My goodness what valor, what faith!  As the people praised God, God was in the background setting up the ambush!  Get with the program brothers and sisters in Christ.  Do not FRET PRAISE God and when you don’t know what to do, do as they did.  They didn’t know what to do, so they looked to the Lord for help.  Are we at this road in time now in our own lives?  I don’t have to mention all of the evil going on, you know it.

II Corinthians 10: 3-6 (3) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh (4)(for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds), (5)casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ; (6) and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience shall be made full.

John 14:12-14 (12) “I tell you the truth, whosoever believes in Me, WILL do the same things that I do. Those who believe will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.  (13) And if you ask anything in my name, I WILL do it for you so that the Father’s glory WILL be shown through the Son. (14) If you ask anything in my name I WILL do it.

 Let’s recap:

  1. Be of one accord (United); in this we can do Anything
  2. Believe in the Lord
  3. Look to Him for our help
  4. The battle is not ours it is the Lord’s
  5. Praise God in holy reverent worship (by singing or just praising)
  6. Do Not be afraid
  7. Ask in the name of Jesus

And all these things going on in our world can be taken care of when we unite in one accord!
