Andy Sanders: "I Am Awakening the Global Church! Every Part is Important!"

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:

This is such an imperative word for the ENTIRE Body of Christ – worldwide. God is calling us to great unity and harvest – TOGETHER as one.

Andy Sanders shares an excellent word about the Global Body at large...when one part is honored, all parts are glad..and when one part suffers, we all suffer...that's scriptural. Therefore, it would benefit us all to work together, building each other up, and supporting one another.

Just read this excerpt by Andy:

"Every part of My Body is important. I am awaking the global Church."

The global Church awakening is the unification of the worldwide Body of Believers. When Christians hurt in Asia we will feel it. When Russia cries out we will hear it. When Cuba prays we will know it, and when the Middle East is in distress we will become the solution before our governments can even respond. This is the awaking of the global Church.

Please make sure to support the Body where you're at and where God is calling you to...your support is that vital! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

"The eye cannot say to the hand, 'I don't need you!' And the head cannot say to the feet, 'I don't need you!' On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it." (1 Corinthians 12:21-26 NIV)

There are a few areas on the human body that I like to avoid when it comes to pain. One is getting a stubbed pinky toe, especially first thing in the morning. The second is a smashed thumb. I dislike them both. For whatever reason, when my thumb is smashed or my pinky toe has been clipped on the corner of a wall, my entire body seems to feel it! We've all felt pain before; it is a part of life.

I've been doing some construction on our home lately, and at one point I was putting some nails into the wall, lost focus for a split second, and whap! Hammer to thumb! An excruciating sensation of severe pain went through my body. How my feet felt my thumb throbbing, I have no idea. This time, however, it was different. The moment I smashed my thumb, the Lord spoke these words:

"Every part of My Body is important. I am awaking the global Church."

A Global Church - A Worldwide Body of Believers

The global Church awakening is the unification of the worldwide Body of Believers. When Christians hurt in Asia we will feel it. When Russia cries out we will hear it. When Cuba prays we will know it, and when the Middle East is in distress we will become the solution before our governments can even respond. This is the awaking of the global Church.

The global uniting of the Church has already begun; however, the global awaking of the Church is now on the horizon. As Believers, we must become determined to work with the global Church just as much as we work with Believers in our own communities.

The local church (Christians being attached in some way to the local Body) is just as important as global Church connections. We can't have one without the other. For example, when I was in China, I didn't attend a single church gathering or function inside a church building.

All of our meetings were in cars, hotels, and privately reserved restaurants. But we had church, no doubt. One gave a word, one prayed, some quoted Scriptures, others were encouraged—it was magnificent, to say the least! Looking back, it was one of the truer examples of modern-day church living that I can recall ever seeing.

This is a lifestyle of Kingdom presence—living supernaturally every day. Though church gatherings are important, our cultural expectations of how we do church are about to change in America.

Like a pregnant mother giving birth, the global Church is awakening in our day. For example, once a newborn baby comes home, everything in that household is different for the rest of their lives. This is the same for the local church in America. When we, as a Church, embrace God's heart for His global Church, everything in our lives will be transformed—to an authoritative group of Believers known for His presence rather than being known for its weaknesses. This awakening will hone our ability to feel the heartbeat of God for all those who are in Christ worldwide. This is one of the more important unions of our time.

Every part of the Body is vital, and not one part will be overlooked. (Remember, when I smashed my thumb my whole body felt it!) This is the global awakening! It is the rise of an explosive power properly joined. It is less corrosive because it is properly protected and more sensitive because it's globally relevant. When one Christian falls, many will catch them. When one is wounded, many can care for them.

The "Fluid" of the Church

Water is one of the most unusual substances on earth. It continually breaks rules of nature. The more it is studied, the more unique science claims it to be. Why? It is because of Hydrogen bonds or bonding. This type of bonding creates a unique stickiness within the water that, for example, allows water to move through the small blood vessels of our bodies but in some cases defies gravity. It allows insects, certain animals, and large ships to remain buoyant on top of water. The list goes on with water's ability to astound us all. (Photo via Pixabay)

Just as water defies the rules of nature, so will the global Church defy both the rules of religion and the laws of nature. Unprecedented supernatural manifestations through the global Church will emerge unlike anything we have walked in before—miracles that are in the Bible and some that aren't for sure! We are truly getting ready to see and experience God and His Church with a whole new understanding of just how amazing God is.

The fluid of the local church is changing—same Body, same Blood, and same Jesus. It can be likened to our bodies and how they adjust at certain stages of life—same Body but with different functions now. This is just like water and how it can change into so many different forms. This same substance (water) can also out-do natural laws of nature.

Likewise, the internal fluid within the local church is changing to embrace a new passion for the global Kingdom. This is the heart of God for every person and soul on earth joining hearts for one King—Jesus. The local hand of the Church is reaching out and connecting to the global arm of the Church. A united Kingdom will emerge. For many, this is the awaited destiny of your life. Everything you went through has brought you to this moment.

"For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one Body, and each member belongs to all the others." (Romans 12:3-5 NIV)

The Global Winds

Because of worldwide weather changes on the earth, the natural global winds are redirecting. The global winds of the spirit are also shifting on the earth. Our Lord is blowing His Spirit in new directions in order to unite His Body all over the earth. His passion for us is to have one heart to worship Him, with the privilege of serving His Body.

If you have been feeling new, unexpected, and in some cases bazaar turns that the Father is leading through, you are probably sensing the shift in the global winds (spiritual). I have come across many people this year in my travels who have been feeling a new direction within their lives, more so than most years in the past. It's exciting to watch; surely good things are ahead for the Body of Christ! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)
