Can’t we all get along!

1 Corinthians 12:5-6

King James Version (KJV)

And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

God’s plan and desire is for all of us to work together. Those who are denominational and non-denominational. God did not design denominations. I know this is going to make someone offended. I will not apologize for one reason. You do not see denominations in the Word of God. Man’s way to keep order and design. The problem with this is that God’s Word does not need man to create order and design. God’s Word has order and design!

The biggest problems with denominations is that it causes separation. Denominations are what keep Christians apart from one another. Some may talk in other tongues and some may worship without instruments… Who cares! Jesus is not coming back for a denomination. He is coming back for His Church. If you have received Jesus then you are part of the Church. You’re part of a family.

I have preached in all types of denominational churches yet there is definitely one thing we all have in common. Jesus!  If we all started to work together how powerful would the Church be? If we were to all get along despite the denominational lines we could see a greater revival. We would see the USA changed. We would see our churches full every mid-week service and every Sunday service. There are differences in administrations but the Lord is the same. We can also have diverse operations but there is only one God who works in us all.

Look to fellowship with people outside of your denomination and expect to be encouraged and challenged. Expect to work together and see your community changed. If the denominations would work together instead of fighting we could make a change in our government, schools, communities and churches. If our church people would see us working with other denominations then they would happily work with us. As the king is so will the kingdom be. Let’s be kingdom minded and seek people like God sought you and I. Be different from the world. The world knows how to separate but the Church should know how to be united.

Scripture Study: Psalm 133

Be Blessed!

    Very good post. Some things that the Lord showed me is that when He was speaking to Moses He said that He was the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. In so doing, He was saying that He was the God of no only of people but also that He was a God of flawed men. Denominations are of no consequence to God, He moves when and where He chooses. However, I do see an end coming to the church system as we have known it. I will post dream subsequent interpretation and also 2 visions for you to take to prayer and see what the Lord speaks to you about it.

    The End of Church As We Know It

    Let me share a dream I had. In the dream, I saw a wooden coffin and inside the coffin, I saw a church with 2 very large pillars outside. also saw the lid of the coffin resting on the knuckles of 2 hands and the hands in turn were resting on the coffin like one would do just
    before nailing it shut. So, as you can imagine, there was very little light left in the coffin because of the lid of the coffin being almost on the coffin. Getting back to the church I saw inside the coffin, I saw thousands of people coming out of the church and jumping out of the coffin as fast as they could. However, there were 2 groups of people who refused to leave,
    in fact; they had their fists held in the air. These 2 groups were standing by the 2 very large pillars I had seen earlier in my dream. These pillars had names. The name of the first pillar was religion and the name of the second pillar was politics.

    The interpretation of the dream was given by Pastor Guy and is as follows:

    A coffin is what you bury the dead in. The coffin in your dream is
    religious tradition holding the church (the people in the church) in
    captivity from following Jesus. The two large pillars outside are the
    gods of the church. The hands belonging to the knuckles in which the
    lid of the coffin rested on were the hands of the Lord holding the lid
    from closing all the way till those who were going to leave this
    traditional church made it out.
    The hands which were resting on the coffin like they were about to
    shut it was the hands of the spirit of anti christ who was shutting
    out the light through lies and deception. This will be a time as the
    parrabel in Matt 25 of the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten
    virgins.
    The foolish virgins will be those remaining in the coffin and refusing
    to repent from their gods of religious politics and accept the life of
    Christ. Those coming out of the coffin are those who recognize the end
    is here and they came out from among them as God said to do in 2 Cor.
    6:14-18. The door is about to shut and be sealed.

    Some additional things the Lord showed me John 5:25 NIV84

    25 I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.

    Those who hear are the ones coming out of the casket.
    The people who standing by the pillars refusing to leave are the ones of whom Jesus says that they are trying to kill Him because there is no room in their hearts for His word. Which is why they did not leave the church in the coffin and why they will try to kill any move of God that would cause people to want to leave the coffin. They prefer the darkness of the coffin where their deeds go unexposed John 3:19-21 NKJV

    And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.

    A Vision of the church being separated from its Foundation

    The Lord showed me a vision and in the vision I saw a huge church. the church building itself had been separated from its foundation so that the foundation on which it was built was exposed for all to see. The church building was beside the foundation and was no longer hiding the foundation upon which it had been built.

    A Vision About a Classroom

    I had a vision. and in the vision I saw this inside of a small
    classroom. Inside of the classroom there were empty desks. At the
    front of the classroom was Jesus standing at the blackboard, smiling,
    and waiting patiently to instruct the ones who were supposed to be
    sitting in those desks. I then got a chance to see outside and what I
    saw was people with books in their hand fighting amongst themselves on the school playground which is why the classroom was empty. I don’t remember seeing a Bible in anyone’s hands, just books. Each individual was arguing about the content in his own book.

    • I receive what you have written. Powerful prophetic word! It has given me some additional insight to some of the open visions and dreams I have had. Thank you for sharing and be blessed Tony!

  2. Tony Puccio says:

    I will share another vision with you because it has a lot to do with the Lord’s plans and organic church.

    The Wall of the Religious Dam is About to Burst

    I had a l vision, in this vision I saw a very large dam, picture something like Hoover dam if you will. As you know, the wall of this dam and its height are enormous. The dam in my vision serves 2 purposes: 1. it regulates the flow of water and 2. it restricts the movement of the fish within the dam as they can swim no further than the wall of the dam. The next thing I saw was thousands upon thousands of fish at the dam wall wanting to go forward but were prevented from doing so because of the dam’s wall and they were crying out to the Lord to be released . The wall in this vision is a picture of the church, as it has restricted if not altogether stopped, the flow of water, which is symbolic of the the Holy Spirit, and it has restricted the flow of fish(people within the church) by erecting a wall called sacred and secular. As I said before, when picturing this wall, imagine something as massive as Hoover Dam, and for a wall of this size and magnitude to be destroyed, it would be only by the hand of God. But that is precisely what I saw in the next part of this vision. I saw this wall crumble and a torrent of both fish and water came out with great force. Down stream there were, “fishermen”, these represent simple/organic church pastors, holding a net. A key here is that they were holding one net not many. Each pastor had a responsibility for holding his part of the net. Secondly, the net was being held vertically, and its purpose was not to catch the fish that were coming but to 1. protect the fish from hurting themselves, because they were coming downstream with a violent force and 2. the net served as guidance to see to it that the fish bounced off the net and back into the stream. This net was not for catching and keeping fish, fish out of water will die. The fish, on their own, formed schools, “Simple/Organic Churches”, and went with the flow of the torrent. Rivers, as you know, flow into oceans and oceans touch nations. The reason this wall has not totally crumbled yet is because there are not enough, “fishermen” to hold the net and why it is so vital that they be raised up as quickly as possible.

    Be wary of the “pastors” that want to help hold the net and come with scissors . They only have a desire to catch and keep the fish for their own purposes and their only interest is building their own kingdom, not the Lord’s. The fish that they catch will eventually die because fish cant live out of water. Also, when the dam broke, the water once again was flowing. For anointing to be fresh it has to be flowing and therefore need to keep returning to the source of living water. We all need to be aware of the Lord’s rebuke of His people given by the prophet Jeremiah “For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, The fountain of living waters, To hew for themselves cisterns, Broken cisterns That can hold no water”.
    (Jer 2:13 NASB)

    • Powerful word! I see this exactly as it has been written. This is quite evident of the Church and its Pastors. So true for our area and its churches. This is something that I have been praying against in our area. If you don’t mind I would like to share this with church. Be Blessed!

      • Tony Puccio says:

        I’m glad the post spoke to you . Feel free to share this and any other post that’s on my blog . I think it might be a good idea for you to follow my blog and I yours, what are your thoughts ?

      • Yes Tony, I will follow your blog. I am really excited about new people following and the chance to hook up with more people. Have a blessed night! Pastor Philip Roman

  3. Tony Puccio says:

    Here is one other vision that I will share with you. I believe that it will give credence to the direction that you are going.

    Row Boat Vision

    In this vision I saw a very stormy sea, at night,with no moon nor stars, and in the sea, there were people drowning. Also in the sea, were many rowboats with a captain in each and the captain, along with those in the boat were rescuing those who were in the sea. The boats would only hold so many and that is why many boats were needed. I saw that the boats all rowing towards a light house. Also in the vision, I saw a very large ocean liner. It had a crew of thousands and it took every member of the crew to run the ship, no one could be spared to aid in the rescuing those who were drowning in the sea. Furthermore, the ocean liner was huge and very high so that it would be impossible for its crew to reach a hand into the water to rescue those who were drowning. As you might have guessed, the row boats are symbolic of organic/simple churches. A rowboat can only hold so many before it begins to sink and so many row boats and many captains are needed. The ocean liner is the mega church(machine) it has so much machinery needed to keep the vessel running that it can’t spare anybody. And when I saw the ocean liner steer toward somebody that was drowning in an effort to save them it ended up killing them. I believe that the Lord is returning the His church back to ts roots and to the simplicity of the gospel message from which it was birthed, I believe that the,”machinery” is being dismantled and the complexity of the machinery is giving way to the simplicity that is the Gospel pattern for church.
