“I say unto you that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father Who is in Heaven” (Matthew 18:19).
Agree (Gr. Sumphoneo, from Sumphonos): Sounding together, accordant, consent, harmonious, one accord
The beauty of agreement is a veritable symphony of coming together in one accord to produce a sound from Heaven that transcends the earth realm and lifts us into the unity of the Spirit in the heavenly realm wherein dwells the glory of God. This was the atmosphere on the Day of Pentecost when “they were all in one accord in one place, and suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. . .” (Acts 2:1b-2). This sounding together of the Spirit with cloven tongues of fire and the breath of the Almighty released as a mighty wind gave birth to the Ekklesia, the Church of the Firstborn, and the Assembly of the Saints. This is the power of Agreement in action to initiate the greatest movement among mankind for all eternity.
Coming into Agreement with God produces the amalgamation of our spirit and heart with the Spirit and heart of the Divine. We become one in the One by mutual consent to be joined in one Spirit, the Spirit of Christ (cf. I Corinthians 6:17). This is the earnest expectation of the Creation as it waits for the manifestation of the sons of God (cf. Romans 8:19).
There is power in Agreement as it produces a walk with God in the Covenant bonds of love, unity, peace and the joy of the Lord. Indeed, as the Prophet Amos spoke so succinctly, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3). The rhetorical question is clear; no, unless we come into Agreement with God, we will never have power with God, or be moved by His Spirit into His eternal purposes for the Saints.
Abraham had power with God as he came into Agreement with God and it was counted unto him as righteousness (cf. Genesis 15:6; Romans 4:3). Believing God, trusting God, agreeing with God produce the power of faith with God. This is the power of Agreement in action.
The Power of Agreement extends to us in our relationships in the Body of Christ. Jesus said, “if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything. . .it shall be done”. The power of Agreement on earth is a powerful yes and amen in the heavens. This is the very Word of the Lord.
Jesus said, “If a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand” (Mark 3:25). Woe to the house divided. It is only in Agreement with God and Agreement with each other in the Spirit of God as we “endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (cf. Ephesians 4:3), that we shall prosper in the Lord and in the Kingdom. Discord, division, strife, and malice will only bring ruin.
The keeping of relationships is in Agreement: Family, the Body of Christ, Enterprise, Government all are kept together by coming into Agreement. God, in His Sovereign wisdom gave us the Key to unlock the Door to the Power of God. The Son always Agrees with the Father, the Spirit always bears witness to the Truth and the Father always glorifies the Son. Agreement, yes, amen! Done!
Let us by mutual consent with God, walking in company with Him, being in one accord with Him, coming into Agreement with Him, release the harmonious sound of Heaven to bring forth the most beautiful symphonic music carried by the wind of the Spirit into the utmost parts of the earth and be witness to the greatest harvest of souls since that first release at Pentecost. Let us proclaim the Power of Agreement and see the fulfillment of all that which the Prophets have spoken. And then the end shall come.
