I know that many of us have heard about agreeing on a thing and it willb e done, but let’s look a little closer.
We have to start back in the beginning. When God said, “Let US make man.” He was speaking to The Christ, The Anointed One, Jesus, and to the Holy Ghost. There was an agreement made in Heaven, and it was accomplished on Earth. This is a Kingdom principle that is still in effect today.
Now move forward to Genesis 11 and the tower of Babel. God looked down and saw that the people were ONE. They had agreemtn amongst themselves. Genesis 11:5-7, “And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men build. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now othing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
God knew that if people could come together in agreement or unity of purpose, nothing could stop them. Why? Because God made man, you and I, in His likeness. Not just a physical appearance but as a living breathing spirit. He gave us that same authority that He has. I know that messes with some people’s religion. God understood that He had to separate those people in order to stop the tower. When we cannot communicate and come into agreement, we can’t accomplish all that God has for us to do. That’s why in Ephesicans 4:1-5, Paul wrote about unity in the church.
That’s why Jesus said, “…if any two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19-20.
That is the authority and power we have as believers, the authority of the Name, and the power of agreement.

Occasionally Pastors Eric and Laura will write as the Lord leads them. There may be prophetic words or insights and revelation that have come to them. They share these with the intention that someone would be blessed and encouraged or admonished, something we all need once in a while.
