This weekend, Pastor Parkey Cobern teach on the power of unity, and what that should mean to us. Looking at Psalm 133, we can see the extent of Biblical unity established. First and foremost, unity is the state of being united or joined as a whole, being of a single mindset, and it is essential for the presence of spiritual anointing! We are the priesthood of Christ and when we are unified, we are anointed to do God’s work!
Anointing can be an unction or an active Holy Spirit, as well as spiritual activity that releases the richness, fruitfulness, and fatness of heaven! In Psalm 133, anointing is likened to dew from Mount Hermon descending upon Mount Zion; Mount Hermon is the tallest mountain in Israel and the only peak that receives snow and rain, which then flow to its base to form the Jordan River. Mount Zion is likened to the church; it’s the place of the Temple where God meets with His people. So Mount Hermon anoints Mount Zion with the only river in Israel.
The perfect example of unity is the Godhead, or Trinity; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus described it in Mark 12:29 as the Lord being one, or unified amongst its units.
We need to avoid things that will cause disunity! This includes church gossip sessions; we need to avoid speaking negatively against any brother or sister in the church body. Also, we need to avoid church critique sessions where we critique any church for how they operate. Lastly, the biggest issue in the American church is the deification of personal preferences; we are all told by society that we are special and our opinion matters, and many people often elevate their own ideology above others. When this happens, people can easily be disconnected from a church service because distractions from even minor things, instead of lowering their personal preferences and allowing themselves to openly worship. When we are able to avoid all of these disunifying things, we can walk in the anointing of Christ as a church!

I remember when I was a young boy and how my mother used to teach me the Bible. Many scriptures were a part of that learning process, but there was one that seemed to have the most impact on me. It was Mark 8:38: For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this …
