SEPARATION FROM BRETHREN
By Dick Johnson
Scripture Reading: II Thessalonians 3:6,14
When the prophetic kingdom is established, God's people will serve with one mind and one spirit and will obey all of God's commandments (Ezekiel 37:24-28). This unity will be possible because God will put His Spirit into His people and cause them to do only what is right (Ezekiel 36:26, 27).
As brethren in Christ, we have been given the Holy Spirit and are exhorted to be united with our fellow brethren (Philippians 2:1-8). The key ingredient for unity ofthe Spirit is humility-the same type of humility that our Lord exemplified by dying our death on the cross. We should endeavor to have unity of the Spirit with fellow believers in all humility; but unity must be based on truth, otherwise it is merely a show of faith based on compromise.
Those who understand the distinctiveness of Paul's apostleship and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery are sometimes accused of being dividers and troublemakers by church people. Paul proclaimed the gospel of the grace of God and was persecuted and his authority undermined by religious zealots who thought they were doing the will of God.
We are exhorted to stand firm in the truth of the gospel of this dispensation and follow the example set by Paul (Ephesians 6:10-21, I Corinthians 1l:1).
