Mark 5:12-13 (KJV)
12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
when Jesus was about to cast out legion from a man, they beseeched him to send them into the swine.
These devils were going out from where they had been together when they came out, they didn’t go in a DIFFERENT direction, they all went in the same direction 6000 of them into the pigs. None of them went into the air or water, they choose a particular destination together and headed that way altogether. What a unity of purpose !! It is sad that even demons from the kingdom of darkness understand networking together than those in the kingdom of light.
When Satan came down from heaven with his fallen angels, they were one third:
Revelation 12:4 (KJV)
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
The host of darkness on the earth is one third. Satan fights with limited resources but With the one third that he has, the whole world of 7.5 billion people can’t rest from the activities of these fallen angels. How come Satan has held the world to ransom with limited resources? He could do so because of unity among his one-third army !!
Matthew 12:43-45 (KJV)
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so, shall it be also unto this wicked generation?
When an unclean spirit is displaced, he doesn’t give up easily. He returns to inspect if the house has left a vacuum for
Reoccupancy. If he eventually finds a little window of opportunity again by a careless living on the part of the person he left, he won’t go in immediately but bring in seven more wicked spirits than himself to occupy the vacuum together. For the sake of corporate dominion and possession, he won’t mind having those stronger than him in that place. Evil spirit doesn’t have the nature of God but it is amazing they could demonstrate SELFLESSNESS and share space in their victims together.
can you bring into a place more gifted or anointed men than you just for the kingdom to reign? Can you lose the sight of self ? can you step down for men with greater kingdom capacity to take over a territory together? Won’t you consider self?
Selfishness, self-centeredness and a sense of preeminence are weakening the body of Christ continually :
3 John 1:9 (KJV)
9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
The set man principle is always with God, there would always be a leader to lead but not for preeminence sake that they can’t receive others.
Ephesians 4:13 (KJV)
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Please note the word TILL WE ALL COME TO THE UNITY OF FAITH… It is not till we all come to the unity in dressing, style or methodlogies ,structure etc but to the unity of faith! God created a church with diversties, the beauty of divinity is in diversity but within the diversities in the church, he would achieve the unity of faith! One lord, one faith, one baptism consciousness .
