When a group of people are all pulling in the same direction there is power, because the sum of the masses is greater than the sum of the individual.
Throughout the scriptures God speaks about the power of unity and he starts with himself. The first statement in the bible is: “ In the beginning God, created the heavens and the earth”.
The word for God is Eloyhim which is a plural noun, there is another Hebrew word that could have been used, which is a word in the Hebrew that could have been used which is a singular noun to describe God and that is Eloah. So straight away God gave us insight into the fact that he is a Tri Unity. There are many, many occasions in the scriptures both old and new testament where God shows us his triune nature, another such occasion is in Deut 6:4: famously own as the Shema and is recited by every Jews as a constant reminder of who God is:
"sh'ma yisrael Adonai elohaynu Adonai Echad
(Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one)
What is interesting to note about this is again is the word in Hebrew used for ONE, the word Echad, which again is a plural noun. Moses could have used yichad which is a singular noun. So straight away Moses was already giving Israel insight into God nature.
The same words is used for when two people are married and become “One Flesh”.
God always leads by example, so in order to show us the importance of unity he had to first demonstrate it.
In the old testament when Israel allowed themselves to be directed by God and they were united, they were strong, when they were not united they were weak.
Satan uses division as a very important tool when attacking God’s people because he knows what the scriptures say:
Palms 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unityof the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
Satan understands that the way the gospel message is going to be spread through the whole world, is when the body of Christ is UNITED. Therefore if he can keep it divided he can try and stop the effective spreading of the word.
Unity is key whether we are talking about a Church, a marriage, a job, a business, a club, a society, what ever. When everyone is pulling in the same direction whether positively or negatively, there is power.
