“Do Not Be Yoked Together With Unbelievers” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common?  Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?  What harmony is there between Christ and Belial?  What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?  What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?  For we are the temple of the living God.  As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be My people.  Therefore come out from them and be separate,” says the Lord.  “Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.  I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters,” says the Lord Almighty.   2 Corinthians 7:1 Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.  These words we need to take to heart and remember that being yoked together is not the same as going and making disciples of all nations.  Being yoked together means to join securely as if a yoke; bind.  One example of being yoked together is chrislam, which is those claiming to be of the Christian faith being yoked together with Islamic faith.  Another example is interfaith churches where many different religions come together to worship their god.  The only True Living God cannot be yoked together to accept others to worship their false idols who are no more than man-made idols.  God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit of Truth are equally the same and One Living God, the Godhead.

Christianity, disciples of Jesus, believers of Jesus, followers of Jesus, children of God by faith in Christ Jesus, grafted in adopted children by the new covenant are all the same.  Christianity is simply worshiping our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.  Also, those whom are the seed of the promise of  Abraham are the same as those whose faith is in God in the Old Testament as well as those who have faith in Christ Jesus and are grafted into the kingdom of God.  The chosen children of God is based on Noah whom was a preacher and had faith in God and  God spared he and his family when He sent the flood, wiping out all the evil in it. Through Abraham the chosen children, which is the promise of many being blessed would come in his lineage. As Jesus stated in the New Testament, He has more sheep to gather that are not of this fold.  He came first to His people, the Jews, then the rest of the world, for all who would believe in His Name as the Son of God and Lord and Savior of the world.  There is no longer any Jew, Gentile, Greek, man or woman.   All are the same in the body of Christ.  One day there will be One Shepherd and one flock which began in the old testament and finished in the new testament.  The adopted children are grafted into the branch of the Jews and we will all be One flock with One shepherd Jesus when He returns and we have our new heaven and new earth.  John 10:14-16 “I am the good shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me–just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father–and I lay down My life for the sheep.  I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen.  I must bring them also.  They too will listen to My voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.
