Where two or three are gathered in My name

Posted by appolus on September 8, 2019

A building or a heart, where does the Lord dwell ? A heart beats, it has chambers , it has blood that pumps and travels to every part of the body bringing life sustaining oxygen. The Body, while complex and made up of many parts, is totally dependent upon the heart. To meet in the name of Jesus is to meet with saints who are identified by the character and the nature of Jesus.

People who have His blood pumping through them, have His Spirit that has set them ablaze. Burning embers gathered together create the potential for a great fire. Throw a log on one ember and it may catch fire after a while, throw a log onto a group of burning embers and it will catch fire right away. One fire, many embers greater light, greater heat. Now, gather a bunch of branches together with no fire and you will just have a bunch of branches. It could not call itself a fire for it clearly is without fire. Just because you call yourself a Christian and gather in the name of Jesus means nothing if you are not actually Christians. A bunch of dead wood is a bunch of dead wood.

Yet, those set ablaze, gathered together could potentially turn the whole word upside down as it burns away all the dross. This scripture that where two or three are gathered in my name, is far more important than we know. To gather in the name of Jesus is a deeply spiritual thing for those who have been born again according to His Spirit, His character and His nature. The enemy has done his level best to dilute that to the point where any fire that existed would be smothered out. The name of Jesus in the form of the word “Christian,” meaning follower of Christ is no mere adjective. It is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me.

Being a Christ follower means to bear the life of Christ in us. So, when two or three genuine Christ followers come together for the sole purpose of Spirit being drawn unto Spirit then there is a magnification that takes place. Like a magnifying glass that captures the light of the sun and turns it into something so very potent, then the Holy Spirit takes the light that is within us, the tow or the three or the however many and turns it into something very powerful. Darkness is the mere absence of light. It cannot be magnified. Take a thousand dark souls and gather them together and what do you have? Darkness. Take the light from two or three or one hundred or a thousand genuine saints , undiluted by the darkness of unbelief and down comes the power of God in a unique way.

    Hi Brother Frank. Good word. When the church meeting becomes a gathering more for and more about outreach to the lost and professing but double minded or for some ecstatic personalized experience of immature saints rather than an assembly of devoted saints loving and building each other up, then the ministry and fellowship of the Spirit in the way intended for the true saints who need to be built up will be lacking or diluted by all the “self” focus rather than the one smothering of the Spirit. It is the one smothering mindset that creates the “atmosphere” for the multiplication of glory that you aptly describe.
