“ONE in ALL”
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6
In these verses of Scripture, the Apostle Paul speaks of the seven elements of UNITY that are centered on the three Persons of the Trinity. These elements provide the basis for the spirit of UNITY, which should exist within the body of BELIEVERS.
ONE body refers to the universal church, which is ALL BELIEVERS. ONE Spirit is the Holy Spirit, who indwells ALL the BELIEVERS, which is the Church. ONE hope is the hope that ALL BELIEVERS have in common concerning their future with the Almighty God, which began at the time they were called to SALVATION.
ONE Lord is the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Head of the Church. ONE faith is referring to a subjective faith, which is practiced in ALL BELIEVERS, in their Lord Jesus Christ. ONE baptism refers to water baptism, which exemplifies the idea that this ONE act of the BELIEVER demonstrates their spiritual UNITY into the Body of Christ, the Church.
ONE God and Father of ALL, who is OVER ALL, and THROUGH ALL and IN ALL. This ONE God refers to the Lord God Almighty, the Father of ALL, who is over ALL, through ALL and in ALL. The “ALL” refers to ALL BELIEVERS, NOT ALL MANKIND. God is the SUPREME FATHER of ALL, who BELIEVE they are His Children.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, you are NOT a part of the “ALL” that possess the ONE SPIRIT, in the ONE BODY, with ONE HOPE for your future with God, with ONE LORD, who is the Head of the ONE Church, practicing ONE FAITH in the Lord Jesus Christ, nor have you experienced the ONE BAPTISM, demonstrating your spiritual UNITY into the BODY OF CHRIST. Instead you are practicing and demonstrating your sinful nature and are a part of Satan’s brood, which are destined to spend an eternity in Hell, the place of perpetual agony, pain, torment and torture. But God is giving you the opportunity to turn away from that lifestyle and to come to Him with a TRULY REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your Heart that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a part of the “ALL”, who is a part of ONE BODY, and possess ONE SPIRIT, ONE HOPE, ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, and experience ONE BAPTISM and ONE GOD and FATHER. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
