Unity in One Accord

When the great out pouring of the Holy Spirit fell on the church, the example and wording is the similar to that of Moses on the mount, HUPPAH meaning: is a canopy under which a Jewish couple would stand during their Jewish wedding ceremony.   READ Exodus 20:18
God was wanting to covenant His people like a marriage!!

UNLIKE MOSE’S TIME, THIS TIME GODS PEOPLE SPOKE BACK AND CAME CLOSE!!
GOD WAS ALWAYS WANTING RELATIONSHIP!!!

 

They were gathered in one accord.
This gathering was composed of the eleven apostles, Jesus’ natural family and many

others, making up about 120 people (Acts 1:14-15).

  1. The word “one accord” is a compound Greek word literally meaning, “with one

heart and mind,” indicating perfect agreement of feeling and desire and purpose.

There were no divisions, no divided interests and no personal ambitions.

If you have an issue, following Matt 18, do NOT cause divisions!!

 

THIS IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR US TO BUILD WITH A FAMILY CULTURE AT THE CORE, AND IT NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED…MANY WOULD WANT TO COME AND BUILD THEIR MINISTRIES…..BUT THAT’S NOT ONE ACCORD..

 

  1. This word occurs only once outside of the Book of Acts in the book of Romans but it is

found often in Acts.

  1. With one accord in supplication (Acts 1:14)
  2. With one accord in expectation (Acts 2:1)
  3. With one accord in consecration (Acts 4:24)
  4. With one accord in separation (Acts 5:12)
  5. With one accord in cooperation (Acts 15:25)

See also: Acts 2:46; 7:57; 8:6; 12:20; 18:12; 19:29 some (11 times)

  1. This unity was one of the secrets to the power and blessing in the Book of Acts (Ps.133).
Psa 133:1  A Song of Ascents; of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!

Psa 133:2  It is like the precious oil upon the head, That ran down upon the beard, Even Aaron’s beard; That came down upon the skirt of his garments;

Psa 133:3  Like the dew of Hermon, That cometh down upon the mountains of Zion: For there Jehovah commanded the blessing, Even life for evermore.

 

  1. Unity is a tremendously powerful force (Mt. 18:15-20 discipline; Dt. 32:30 one puts 1,000 and two puts 10,000; Eccl. 4:9-12) Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor.
  2. Unity is a witness to the world (John 17:20-24).
