The provincial pastor of ECG TJN Mpumalanga Pastor Richard wills has welcomed the national pastor Apostle Samuel Dulungana in the Nelspruit for the Leadership Conference. Resident pastors across Mpumalanga hearkened the word and came in numbers to learn and hear what God has prepared for them in the Year of The Jesus Nation. Leadership requires love and unity. A house that is divided cannot stand and today we saw a demonstration of love and unity from pastors across ECG Mpumalanga Province.
The book of Psalms 133 says “ Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments. 3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
The above mentioned scripture shows how important unity is in the body of Christ, unity is likened to a precious ointment upon the head. Jesus Christ is seen as the “head” of the body, which is the church, while the “members” of the body are seen as members of the Church. The same love Jesus Christ demonstrated for us to be one with God is the same love that has to be demonstrated across ECG TJN. We are a church of love, we are more than a church, we are a family of love and unity.
The same anointing of Jesus that flows from his head is manifested in the body of Christ as love and unity. The scripture further said the oil ran down to Aaron’s beards and went down to his garments. Aaron was a priest and He carried the priestly anointing. When our father was ordaining stewards in 2019 he said we were anointed as priests. We operate in the Priestly anointing and it requires love and unity in order for each one of us to function fully in our different offices that God has called us into.
Unity is like a precious ointment. This is to show that unity is like an ointment that is of great value, not to be wasted or treated carelessly. We are honoured to be lead by Prophet Shepherd Bushiri who always demonstrates love and unity amongst his sons and daughters. Apostle Samuel Dulungana carries the same Mandate of love and unity.
In Psalm 23:5 NKJV, King David says, “You (God) anoint my head with oil.” Shepherds would put oil on a sheep’s head both to sooth and to heal. Flies are one of the worst enemies of sheep. The sheep can’t shake the flies off, knock them off with their hooves nor swat them away with their tails like other animals. Unity can both sooth and heal, and as an ointment heals and removes flies on sheep so does Unity. Love brings unity and unity removes confusion and brings about growth.
ECG Mpumalanga Provience is blessed. Our father has commissioned his pastors to serve you with love and Unity and this meeting is enough proof that you will be led with Unity and love.
