Genesis 11:1-7 (NIV) The Tower of Babel “Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there. They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly. They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.’ But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
It is imperative that we are all on one accord in the body of Christ. Each person must die to him/herself and humble yourself before God. We all speak the same language (the Word of God). When we are on one accord, speaking the same common language; when we operate as ONE body of Christ, there is nothing that we can’t accomplish together. Unity within the body of Christ will cause God and His angels to begin to move on our behalf.
The nations in Genesis 11 said to each other, “Come, let us…” Can you imagine the body of Christ saying, “Come let us pray for marriages and adulterous spouses to be delivered. Come let us pray for our finances and declare and decree that our resources will be released this season. Come let us pray for our ministries, careers, and professions so that God can elevate and promote us in our due season.” Come let US. Everything that the people in Genesis 11 decided to work on together – although it wasn’t a good task – they would have accomplished building that tower to heaven because they were unified in their efforts with one language. Because of their unity, God came down to see what they were doing. I declare and decree that God is going to come down to see what we’re doing during this season. He will see that we are unified for a Godly spiritual cause and He is going to be in the midst of our fasting, praying, ministering, and touching and agreeing. Dr.J.
