Unity – Submit Yourselves One to Another in the Fear of God

September 3rd, 2014 | Filed Under: Author, Topical Studies, Unity, Victor Torres0 Comments

About 4 months ago, I taught a study called “I and the Father are one”. It is about the unity or oneness of the Father and His Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In that study, I said these:

“The only way true unity is achieved is by the body’s total subjection to the head. The Father, who is the Head, says and does everything through Christ, His body. Christ did not seek His own will (Joh 5:30, Joh 6:38), but lived His life in the flesh for the sole purpose of glorifying His Father (Psa 40:8, Joh 17:4). Christ did not say or do anything that the Father did not want Him to say or do (Joh 4:34). Our Lord recognized His Father as the only true God (Joh 17:3) and everything that He has as coming from the Father (Joh 7:16, Mat 11:27, Dan 7:14)”

Joh 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

Unity – I and the Father are One

This study is about the spiritual meaning of the number one in the Holy Scriptures. There is another study that deals with the same topic given by a brother about 8 years ago and, Lord willing, this study would complement and serve as “chewing the cud” of that study (a link is provided at the end).

Chewing the cud is meditating on God’s Word day and night. It is looking for the spiritual meaning behind the letter, for it is the Spirit that gives life and the flesh profits nothing (Job 33:4, Joh 6:63). It is for those who delight in the law of God after the inward man (Eze 36:27, Rom 7:22), for those who keep the sayings of the prophecy of this book for the time is at hand (Psa 119:48, Rev 1:3). It is for those who love God with all their heart, and with all their soul and with all their mind (Deu 6:5, Mat 22:37)

Jos 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

1Ti 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
1Ti 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
