About the motivation of interdenominational gatherings Part 1. "About the Unity in the body of Jesus Christ and creation of the Tabernacle"

We live in the last apocalyptic time; we live at the turn of the accomplishment of the last plans of God for the mankind and for His Church. The turn of the year 2000 was the turn of the Second Coming of Christ for the world Christianity; Christians had been waiting for His appearing, but Christ did not come. Nowadays, Christians go through difficult apocalyptic events, the words of the Bible have approached God's people, "the abomination of desolation ... from sea to sea, seeking the word of God ... no one may buy or sell ... He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way ... horn will make war against the saints, and overcome them" and many other severe and mysterious predestinations of God. And we explain it this way: God has sworn by His name that Babylon will be destroyed. What can be more than the oath of God? Nothing. Therefore, all the destructions in today's world, ecological disasters, destructive processes for millions of people in humanity, unpredictable spiritual damage to the people - everything is the result of God's oath upon Babylon. Today, all countries and peoples are under the nature of Babylon, as well as all religions, including Jewish and Christian ones. We, Christians, are the part of the modern world and we also suffer blows from above together with the modern world. But God's people should live, keep on waiting for His appearing, prepare for a meeting with Christ, be sanctified, perfected and solve many problems according to the will of God.
A very important aspect of attention is the motivation of intentions and actions of God's people since we must be successful in our activity for the name of God. What is next? How can I do it? And what for? People of God face such questions very often. It is very often necessary to motivate one's intentions and actions, especially at some border points of one's life in God. Motives are generally the most important part of all actions and creativity of any person. The will of God expressed in His commandments is the main motive of actions for God's people. But the level of understanding of God's will is different for all believers. All churches and religions have their own goals and objectives, often not corresponding to the will of God. Therefore, the motivation of intentions and actions for the people of all churches is different. We believe that God's people should achieve and have the true motives for mutual creative work with God by faith, by means of the most important objectives in the will of God in the last time. So in this case, we offer interdenominational gatherings for God's people as an important goal and means of perfecting of the church, and through this we are looking for opportunities to receive God's blessing for God's people, the shortage of which has become very critical in the churches during the recent years. We notice that God's people are losing God's blessing a year after year and in their basic mass they do not know how to keep it. As it is written: "He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way..." He is taken out of the churches as well. The word "He who now restrains" we determine as the Holy Spirit. And we declare, "The belief in interdenominational gatherings until the Second Coming of Christ in all the facets of evangelical truth is the foundation and condition for the return of the Holy Spirit and God's blessing to the remnant of His people". The evolution of the whole universal church of Jesus Christ brings God's people to "our gathering together to Him," as Paul said, that is, to the preparation of His chosen people to a meeting with Christ in His Second Coming. "To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation." This word unites the believers of all denominations and, therefore, all children of God should gather before Him for the sake of attaining the Unity. Only in this way the last and great blessing of God is prepared for God's people by Him. We exalt the words "Unity, communication, and mutual blessing."
And we say, "God's Word is full of motives for mutual creation with God in the idea of Unity, one should only open their ears to the universal symphony of God's calls". So the question of motivation of intentions with regard to interdenominational gatherings must be comprehended by the people of God, coordinated with the will of God, and be approved as well.
We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ has been recently brought by God to the last stage of perfection, as it is expressed by the Apostle Paul, "predestined, called, justified, glorified." This is so because during 2000 years of Christian history God's people in all religions in which the children of God are born again of water and the Spirit, baptized with the Holy Spirit and grow with the increase that is from God, has been, in general, at a stage of justification. That is, they are free from sin, they have reached the gift of righteousness which is by faith apart from the deeds according to the doctrine of Paul; and they have faced the question, "What is next?" We all know that the will of God is called "good and acceptable and perfect". And we confidently say that Christians can reason on the good and acceptable will of God quite well, but they find difficulty in giving a full interpretation of the perfect will of God. The signs of good and acceptable will are known to the Christians, while the signs of the perfect will are not so obvious. But all the ways of knowledge of God can be reduced to one formula - "if we have known God, we must glorify Him as God ..." And God's people are facing this task. But the works of God corresponding to the high will of God are the signs of glorification of God - the Unity of God's people, the ministry in spirit and truth, the victory of the people in the war of Armageddon, participation of God's people in the judgment of the world and the Harlot of Babylon, the Mission of the Olive Trees and many others. Therefore, the first facet of motivation of interdenominational gatherings is this consolidation of God's people as partakers of the last church perfecting itself at the stage of glorification. Both knowledge and manifestation of the last stage attributes are the first facet of motivation of interdenominational gatherings.
We all know that God said to all mankind through Christ, "Behold, I make all things new." However, from the times of Adam God has been creating a New Personality in God, a New Community in God and a New Earth and a New Heaven. There is the will of God for the birth and edification of a New Personality in God, being born again in Christ Jesus, we come to God to become New Creatures, the children of God and to attain salvation. But there is also a will of God for the edification of a New Community in God - the Church of Jesus Christ, the glorious Church, the Bride of the Lamb, having the highest name, "the fullness of Him who fills all in all", for whom Christ shall come in His Second Coming. All Christians believe and labor in order to prove to be such a church. But we know that some Heavenly Means are required for the Heavenly construction. What actions should Christians undertake in order  to abandon the spirit of division and achieve Unity? Here is God's answer: "They must humble themselves and come to Jerusalem", as in former times Hezekiah used to gather the whole Israel in one tabernacle of meeting, where God gave "one heart" to many Jews. Christians should also humble themselves and come to one gathering in Christ Jesus, to "our gathering together to Him," as the Apostle Paul said, where the promise of Unity will be also distributed by the Holy Spirit. For only there the Lord will give "the gift of one heart," there the Lord will be with His closeness, His face and His mighty hand. This is the first facet of motivation of interdenominational gatherings.
We are convinced that the last church with the name "the Fullness of Him who fills all in all" cannot form and perfect itself only within the bounds of a particular confession or denomination. We are convinced that if someone builds a denomination without achieving Unity in Jesus Christ, this person commits a sin and will be destroyed. Modern Christianity, chained within denominational borders, is the Christianity in sin, but the best image of the church for Christians is the image of the early Apostolic Church, in which the image of worshiping One God was accomplished at its best.
According to the doctrine of the apostle Paul, not a single church and not a single denomination can claim to be the Body of Jesus Christ, but only to be the members in the Body, as Paul said, "For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body; whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For in fact the body is not one member but many".   And none of the existing denominations can challenge that. Peter's words, "Love the brotherhood...", can not belong to a single denomination, but they belong to all children of God scattered around all denominations of Christianity. Therefore, the way of edification of the Sanctuary, or the Tabernacle, or the Altar, or the Temple, or the Body of Jesus Christ, as the Last Temple is the way of God's glory. This is the central motivation for Christians in the mutual creation with God in edification of a New Community in God, of the glorious Church of Jesus Christ. All the ways of knowledge of God can be reduced to a formula, "When we knew God, we must glorify Him as God ..." The work of edification of the Body of Christ is the way of God's glory.
It was Moses whom God said, "Make Me a sanctuary ... I will make all My goodness pass before you." Christ in His prayer also said, "They all may be one... they may behold My glory..." So we say, "The way of edification of the Sanctuary, as an image of Unity in Christ Jesus for God's children of all churches and denominations is the way of God's glory.  The Unity of God's people is a central motivation for Christians in the edification of a New Community in God, of the glorified Church of Jesus Christ. As the apostles said: "God at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name..." This is the word of the most important God's will for the church of God of the last time - "...to take out of them a people for His name..."; to take out, i.e. to lead to the Unity and Worshiping to One God. Like Paul also said, "Till we all come to the Unity of the faith and of the knowledge." And as a result - "...come to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ..."
That is what the last time church extremely needs. But the fact of the matter is that the perfect stage of glorification is unattainable for God's people without "the Unity of the faith and of the knowledge" for all children of God in all denominations. It is a central motivation for interdenominational gatherings. Today, many Christian denominations are as if awakened to the need to achieve Unity, but they manage to achieve nothing but ecumenical contacts and communication. Some formal outward Unity is as though achieved, but the Unity in the Body of Christ is not there. Virtually none of the Christians of ecumenical Christianity knows how to achieve the true Unity.
So, there is the will of God "to take out of them a people for God's name". The main name of God is One God. And Christ bore witness to all mankind in His prayer that the knowledge of God's name is the commandment: "The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one... this is the first commandment".  And we say: "It is the first and the last commandment of God." Commandments of the Law of Moses on the tablets given by God to the Jews began with the commandment of One God, and Christ concluded with the same commandment. Therefore, the knowledge of God's name as One God through the achievement of Unity of God's people is the fulfilling of God's commandment. Those who among God's people do not fulfill this commandment sin against God and are brought to the Lord's judgments. This is the main facet of motivation for the obligatoriness of interdenominational gatherings in the way of achieving Unity. But here is the important thing - the achievement of God's will concerning Unity by His people is possible only for the people whom Christ has reached with the following words, "I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word". In these words there is the first mention in the universe given by Christ about the manifestation of God's name to men. But this is achievable only by those whom God has given to Christ, as the special chosen people who can "keep" the word of God. Those from the people of God to whom the commandment about One God is not achievable, as well as the commandment of the Unity of God's people, they cannot rise to the perfect level of praise and perhaps they will not avoid the baptism into the Whore of Babylon. It is the main facet of the mandatory motivation of interdenominational gatherings, because Unity is the ultimate goal to be achieved by people who transfer out of this world to God, and the condition of all successful and fruitful achievements.
The Word of God teaches us that Unity is the promise of God such as peace, love, righteousness, power, and many other gifts of God.  
In order to become rooted in Unity with all believers in Christ, we must accept this promise by faith. As freedom from sin is achieved through acceptance of righteousness from faith, so is achieved Unity.  As love is poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, so we have Unity in the Holy Spirit. The prophet Ezekiel spoke about Unity as the promise of God: "Thus says the Lord: I will gather you from the people, and you out of the land in which you are scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. And they shall come there, and cast forth from her all her abominations, and all the abominations of it. And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put them in, and take out the flesh of their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and observe my statutes and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God." It is the prophecy about Christ and about the New Testament, because no one can receive the gift of one heart without Christ, since it is written: "All the promises of God in Him" yes "and in Him the" Amen "- to the glory of God through us." Unity for the people of God is the promise of God; it is the gift of one heart, given by God to His people as the gift of God's grace in Christ Jesus. Moreover, the prayer of Christ to His Father has already been fulfilled, and Christ prayed so: "Holy Father! Keep them in Your name those whom You have given me, that they may be one, as we are." We say that God's people are already one if they are living in God's faith, because it is impossible to imagine that the prayer of Christ to His Father could fail.
So the Heavenly Father according to the prayer of Christ has always "kept" and still "keeps" His people in His name. Keeping of His people by God "in the name of God" is nothing else but the achievement of Unity if God's people believe it. Those who are kept in the name of God are made united. The words of the Apostle Paul confirm it: "Having abolished in his flesh the enmity ... and reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity." First of all, "the enmity is put to death" for the people of God kept in His name, the enmity which is the basis of division, therefore they are One. That's why we state with confidence that Unity in Christ has already taken place among His chosen ones, because Unity is the gift of God in Christ Jesus. The words of Christ: "I in them, that they may be made perfect in one ..." - offer a unique opportunity to achieve Unity among the people of God - "I in them ..." And so we say, "No need to overwork to achieve Unity among the people of God, which God reserves in Unity, there is a need to take the promise of Unity by faith as a gift of the grace given by God in Christ Jesus. "
We also say, "God is alive and those who are in Him, they are alive, God is One and those who are in Him are one." So the people of God resolve questions of achieving Unity through faith in Christ Jesus.
The early apostolic Christians are an example for us, when they had "one heart and one soul, they had all things in common, with great power gave the apostles witness of Jesus Christ and great grace was upon them all ..." That is, by the gift of God's grace the promise of Unity was available to the people of the early apostolic church for a short time. But the spirit of division came even into the early apostolic church, diotrepheses and those who said, "I am of Paul," or "I am of Apollos," or "I am of Cephas," or "I am of Christ" divided God's people into many denominations and churches. It is so until this day. That is, knowledge of the name of God - One God and observance of the commandment of Unity was too unmanageable will of God in general for the historical Christianity.
And if God's people in many denominations and churches are still weak and cannot accept the promise of Unity by faith, then they are defined by God to take the path of achieving Unity, that is also foreseen in the will of God of the New Testament. Christ is the door and the way, that is why, the promise of Unity and baptism into the Body of Christ is given freely, but it is reached and approved with the help of the way. The important question: "How many baptisms are determined for God's people by God?" It is widely believed that there are three, but we affirm that there are four. They are water, spiritual, fiery baptisms and the baptism into His Body by His Spirit. The apostle Paul said: "For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body; whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit." So we say that the promise of baptism into the Body of Christ works for all believers in Christ provided that God's people believe in this promise. Both the overcoming of the path to reach Unity and the baptism into His body are easily achieved by the people of God if people believe that they will overcome it. If there is a lack of faith in the people, then the promise of Unity, as well as the way to achieve Unity is left only for believers, conscious and creative personalities in God, because carnal Christianity is not able to receive the promise of Unity, as well as not able to achieve Unity, as the Apostle Paul said: "For when one says:" I am of Paul, "and another:" I am of Apollos, "are you not carnal?" They do not need a commandment of Unity.
Such people think that their church is the only true one, holy, universal and apostolic; it observes the divine tradition, Jesus Christ is the head of only their church, their baptism is the only competent and the Holy Spirit leads them alone. And if it is not said this way, in any case, it is assumed. It obviously demonstrates "elementary literalism" and carnal understanding of carnal Christians. For this reason, none of carnal Christians will draw nearer to Unity, unless they appreciate at its full value the Greatness of One Sacrifice of Jesus Christ for His people, unless they believe that to the Unity of the church leads One gathering of all who confess Jesus Christ, who eat of One sacrifice and have common goals and objectives according to God's will. Despite the fact that all Christianity has divided into those who say, "I am of Cephas," or "I am of Paul," or "I am of Apollos," or "I am of Christ", i.e. Catholics, Orthodox, Baptists, Pentecostals and others, they can only claim for membership in His Body, but not for the whole Body and cannot say to those who are like them, "I have no need of you." All Christians without an exception must understand that there are many members, but there is one Body of Christ, and the membership in the Body of Christ is equally granted to everybody by Christ. But due to the lack of faith and unbelief of carnal people, the commandment of Unity is not accessible for the majority of carnal Christians in all denominations, that is why, the commandment of Unity is not given by God to all denominations and churches and belongs only to the special people in all denominations - to those "whom You have given Me... and they have kept Your word. " That is, as in the Old Testament there was a notion "remnant", so in the New Testament glorious salvation is achievable only by the remnant of God's people. This commandment, "Come out of Babylon, my people ..." is for them. It is the most important facet of motivation of interdenominational gatherings.
So the goal of "our gathering to Him" ​​for God's people all over the world, expressed in interdenominational gathering in the name of God, is one of the most important means of achieving Unity, and Unity without such a meeting is not attainable. We can see the zeal of Christ in it, "Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up." The zeal of the chosen people of God in recent years, standing in the way of building up the Lord's house, the Tabernacle of God's people with God and the Temple of the Body of Christ is also expressed in it.
Examining the word "edification" or "building up" or making in the Bible, we marvel with great amazement, because all the diversity of themes and images of these words come to the way of building up of the Tabernacle or the Temple. In the first books of the Bible the word "making" refers only to God's creation of the earth, the universe and a man, but in the following books the word "edification" refers only to building up of altars by a man. The building of the altar by a man is similar to the making of His Creation by God. But the altar is the meeting place of a human soul and God. It follows from this that there is nothing more worthy for a man in his activities than building of the place of Unity between God and a man, i.e. the Altar or the Temple of the Lord, as the Tabernacle of God with men. The Altar or the Temple is the top of building up for all people above which a man cannot rise. How important it is to find oneself to be a steward of such Tabernacle. The people of God both in the Old and in the New Testament were building altars rather zealously, as the meeting place of the people with God. In the Old Testament people of God had many altars, the high places and wooden images as places of worship. So all religions and churches of historical Christianity are also the places of worship, similar to Old Testament Israel. But there was a commandment for Israel, "You shall worship before this altar." Thus zealous kings and prophets destroyed many altars in Israel and cut down the wooden images. There is an example for Christians in it. Both God's people of the Old Testament and Christians have an immutable plan of edification, determined for God's people by God for all times and all nations, until last times, as expressed in the following words that King David said to Solomon: "And now, my son! Only may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding, therefore arise and build the sanctuary of the Lord God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the holy articles of God into the house that is to be built for the name of the Lord." It is about One confession, One Altar, it refers to "a house that is to be built for the name of the Lord," in order that all the "vessels of God" who come out the Babylonian captivity could gather in it. Thus, there was a clear motivation for building of Solomon's Temple as One Altar. There is also a clear motivation for such unearthly edification for Christians in the idea of ​​survival, the idea of ​​salvation, the idea of ​​perfection and the idea of ​​glorifying God and His Church.
So, we say that every steward of God's church, regardless of the existing denominational partitions and restrictions, must reveal oneself in the high age quality of God's sons - the quality of a co-creator with God in His great plan, "gathering together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth..." The necessity of interdenominational gatherings is motivated by this will of God. That is, in recent years God has set the most important task before the people of God: reaching the perfect stage of glorification; the task that has not yet been carried out by God's people in the history of Christianity. Christ said, "I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors." Therefore we must say, "It's high time to harvest the wheat and the weeds, because today it is the Age of Harvest," now the earth brings its fruit - the "vessels of wrath and vessels of mercy," the harlot of Babylon and the Church of the Firstborns. Today the Age of Harvest has come and the Powers of Heavens have started to move. Today is the Age of Harvest prophesied by the prophets, "Also, O Judah, a harvest is appointed for you, when I return the captives of My people." Today it is already the manifested fact, Israel has gathered in the Promised Land and all the processes determined by God for humanity are coming to an end.
There are some words to justify this will of God. Christ said, "The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth...." Christ said, that He will send His Angels to accomplish His last work; God said through the prophet Isaiah that the elect will be sent for this purpose, "I have commanded My sanctified ones; I have also called My mighty ones for My anger; those who rejoice in My exaltation." If it is said that Angels will be sent, then also the spirit of Elijah, as it was foretold by the prophets, then also we, as the elect of God, as those who have approached the spirit of Elijah will be sent for this mission. The spirit of Elijah in us is destroying denominational partitions of all religions, the spirit of Elijah is leading God's people out of Babylon, the spirit of Elijah is building One Altar putting together twelve stones and bringing the power of God, the spirit of Elijah is opening the heavens for the Church of Christ. This is the most important facet of motivation of interdenominational gatherings, because God's people cannot do anything without Unity and without a battle array. They will not be able to become the strong people in the last times. Therefore God will not send them, as the strong people to bring in a harvest.
The highest goal for the remnant of God's people in all denominations is to believe in the name of God - One God, to accept the promise of Unity by faith, to overcome a great way of achieving Unity through acceptance of the commandments of His will, and finally "to see His face," as it is written in Revelation, "They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads." The highest goal for the remnant of God's people in all denominations is to find compliance with the Divine definition, "a Body You have prepared...", i.e. the work of building of the Lord's Temple as One Body of Christ. The most important prerequisite of the Temple's existence is the following definition, "And they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory..." So there is nothing greater in God's will in the last years than the work of building of the Last Temple including all who believe in Him from every confession, as it is promised by God that the Lord will certainly come to His Temple. As it was written on the ark of God in Old Testament Israel, "the name of the Lord who dwells between the cherubim," so His name is written on His last United Church through the reformative positive progressive transformations of the church.
It will reveal the obedience to Christ of His chosen people in fulfilling the commandments of the New Testament, as Christ said: "If you love Me, keep My commandments." Unity with Christ will be accomplished for the chosen people in it, and as a consequence, the Unity of all who confess Jesus Christ regardless of denominations. In the history of Christianity, God's people have been splitting and dividing with or without a reason. But His people will be gathered by the coming of Jesus Christ, because it is the mission of Christ. It is written about Jesus that He "... would die for the nation, and not for that nation only, but also that He would gather together in one the children of God who were scattered abroad." This word of Christ will certainly come true. The prophets spoke of Christ: "You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved ones of Israel..." The meaning of these words is simple - it is characteristic of Christ to "raise up" the destroyed and "restore" the scattered. We are at the threshold of this phenomenon, because the Scripture cannot fail. Following in the footsteps of Christ, we cannot do otherwise. We just like David or Hezekiah "should cut down the wooden images and green trees" in our minds and should bear the "ark of the covenant" into a single place of worship. We are called exactly to this today.
Thereby the people of God will create "the Tabernacle", "the Sanctuary," "a New Earth and a New Heaven," will complete the dispensation of the Firstborn Church, the Body of Christ in which Unity, Hierarchy, Fellowship, Love and all other Divine promises - rest, blessedness, joy, reconciliation, peace, glory and power of the fire of the Holy Spirit and many others - will become the first achievements. In a word, it will be a comfort joining together with the Lord and the reflection of God's kingdom here on the earth in the community of His people. God's people should have the boldness of Christ to tell people, "The kingdom of God has come near to you." If the remnant of God's people in the last times is attentive to this will of God and manifests God's faith, it will see that today God's people are reaching the ability to revive and renew the earth, and positively transform mankind with the help of the signs of God's Kingdom. What is especially important here - they can have a positive impact on "restoring of the kingdom to Israel", on caring out of the (inwardness) true essence of the Jewish Aliyah.
So the words of the Apostle James are the reason for this conclusion. He said, "Simon has declared how God at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name. And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written, 'After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; so that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the Lord who does all these things.'   The essence of the words is that if the people of God are taken out of Gentiles to assemble "a people for God's name", only then the true Jewish Aliyah will be realized by God, and as a result of this "the rest of mankind may seek the Lord ..." So great is the idea of Christian Unity. So great are intentions and motives of interdenominational gatherings.
There is another very important motivation for interdenominational gatherings. God's Word says: "And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." The idea of promises is being developed in mankind from the time of Abraham, God made a covenant with Abraham, promising him and his descendants to inherit the land and all the divine promises and blessings. But above all (and this is very important) there is the promise of the inheritance of the world. It is important because the orientation of the Christians to this promise is extremely useful for transformation of Christians' consciousness, and for selection of true purposes of faith, especially in the last years, such as the task of perfection. It is very important to see that God gave the promise of inheritance to Abraham first, and only then He set a condition, "Walk before Me and be blameless." And the promise of inheritance came to power before Abraham's walking blameless before God. This is very important for Christians to know, but Christian conscience does not accept this promise as a priority. Christian mind perceives the relationship between Abraham and God through God's words to Abraham, "Walk before Me and be blameless", that is, God's command to be blameless, as the commandment of the law is the main priority for the feeble Christian consciousness after all. Supposedly it is the reason for God's blessing of Abraham. But it is not so. Before Abraham was able to manifest his faith and blameless walking before God, God gave him a promise - "multiplying I will multiply you..." That is, this promise to Abraham had been given before he pleased God through faith in his blameless walking. The promise of inheritance goes first, which is incomparably more important, and the requirement of integrity is there as an immutable condition. Therefore we say that the superiority of God's promises to God's people given to us as a gift of God in Christ Jesus, is incomparably superior to all our dignity and achievements in God. God's people must understand the meaning of God's promises and how they should believe in them. For this reason, the faith in the gift of "one heart" as the promise of Unity in God is incomparably higher than all the ways of achieving it.
And if we look at this truth open-mindedly, we can see that all God's children who have achieved the redemption by Christ from this world meet each other in the promise of inheritance, it is possible to achieve Unity only through the promise of inheritance, because the promise of inheritance is equally granted to all children of God. "If you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise," said Paul. It was said about Christ, and therefore also to those who are Christ's, "I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, 'You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. ..." So that means that God's children of all denominations inherit not only the kingdom of God, but an earthly kingdom as well, if they have faith in God. Paul said that, "For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith." But if God's people do not have a living faith in the promise of inheritance of the world, then the Unity is also impossible, and even the salvation of God's people will be out on a limb, because the gift of salvation and the promise of inheritance are the links of one chain.
Therefore God's people need to know that the gift of salvation is achieved through the promise of inheritance. But the promise of inheritance obliges God's people to ascend to all stages of perfection, because it is necessary to wage a spiritual warfare for this promise, it is necessary to become a co-creator with God for the sake of this promise, there is a condition for achieving this promise in it. The promise of the inheritance of the world is directly connected with the gift of the divine power that God gives to His people, and power, as we know, is not achieved without a severe struggle for it. The power and the struggle for it is not possible without knowledge and work of the Heavenly Hierarchy. And all this can be achieved only through "our gathering together to Him." It is true for the earthly level as well as for the heavenly one. It is true for the promise of inheritance as well as for the promise of Unity. All of this reveals an alloy of the promises according to the gift of God's grace and the struggle for them carried out by a strong-willed man.
Thus, the promises are received by faith, but become firmly established by warfare; therefore the way of the holy warrior in Christ is the highest purpose for all believers. And it is indisputable, because while creating the world God has defined for His Creation the way of the war for the preservation and improvement of the creation so that the unshakable kingdom of God abides forever. "They fought and won ..." - is written in Scripture and there are words of heavenly Predestination in that. God created the worlds, the Angels fought for them. All this is also intended for the people of God who are perfect. But it is impossible without uniting of all the forces of God's people in this war.
