Unite For Christ’s ministry is to deliver certain messages These messages are a “Call To Action” for all Christians. Now is the time to show our light and make our voices heard. Our silence has emboldened the enemies of God. Time is Short.
The Flag of Christ, the Ensign of Jesus, is for His family to rally around.
Here is the first of three (3) messages we were told to deliver:
Time is Short. The standard of Jesus the Christ, is to precede Him in all the lands of the faithful. His standard is to be flown above all others. His standard is to be flown by every faithful member of, His flock. His standard is to be flown by all, His churches. His standard reflects the unity of heaven. His churches are to be so unified. His standard will serve as a mark of the faithful, therefor it must be offered to all the Father’s children. He said you were to be the light of this world. Now your light must be shown to all enemies of the Father. His standard represents your light. Time is Short
This is what Christians are called to do… We must heartily offer and engage on the side of truth and holiness. The Lord has sworn that He will have war with Amalec forever. Our lusts and their confederates, the world and the devil, are this Amalec. The war is for life, and the Lord will fight for us. More are with us than with them. We go forth in the name of the Lord of hosts, whom they defy. His Ensign is displayed against error and vice, profaneness and impiety, our own and others’ sins. Jeremiah 51:25: “Behold, I am against thee, O thou that destroyest the Earth! Set ye up the Standard, blow the trumpet, prepare the nations, and Babylon shall be a desolation.”
The following text is from a Sermon and Prophecy by one of the great evangelists of our country, J. Draper, for J. Edwards and S. Elliot, on June 5, 1738.
Rally to the Flag of Christ
An ensign is a conspicuous thing, to be looked at, seen, beheld, and considered: and such is Christ. This is the gracious evangelical phrase, Looking to Jesus! (See Hebrews 12:2; Isaiah 65; Zechariah 12:10.) The gracious Gospel precept: behold me, behold me; and the gracious constraining promise: “they shall look upon Him whom they have pierced” Strong is the eye of faith and the hand of prayer, to reach the highest Heaven and bring down salvation from the exalted Jesus. We must look and admire, look and love, look and ascend to Him on the wings of strong desire and unfailing faith. He has said (John 12:32): And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to me. Amen, glorious Lord! From Heaven we also look for Him again in power and great glory. The angels of Jesus bid the disciples do so in the hour of His ascension (Acts 1:11): Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into Heaven? This same Jesus which is taken up into Heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into Heaven. Without controversy, great is his mystery of godliness, the visions of the Son of Man; as in the glories of the Only-begotten of the Father. (See 1 Timothy 3:16):God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached to the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up to glory.
Enlist Under His Colors
The Standard is set up and the Ensign displayed for People to gather to, and such is Christ. To Him shall the Gentiles seek, says my text, and after it the prophet goes on: He shall set up an Ensign to the nations, and gather the dispersed of Judah, and assemble the outcasts of Israel. This was the ancient and famous promise in the prophecy concerning Judah, and the blessing with which His Father blessed Him! Genesis 49: The Scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a Lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come, and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be. This is the first meaning and use of the standard: for summoning and inviting persons to enlist themselves, and for the assembling of the enlisted. The tribes of Israel, in their encampments and marches through the wilderness, had each their own standard, and they pitched about their own ensign. Numbers 2:2: “Every one by his own standard, with the ensign of their fathers’ house. This made their camp look beautiful and yet terrifying in their order and array! The Spirit of prophecy in later times speaks of this use of the ensign: to call the nations from afar, and to [call] to them from the ends of the earth to come with speed swiftly with their loins girt! And thus runs the burden of Babylon: Lift ye up the Banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice to them, and shake the hand to go up to her gates; Ihave commanded my sanctified ones;I have called my mighty ones,
etc. (See Isaiah 5:26-27; 13:1-3.)

The message is clear. Christians must come together and be united in His purpose. What does this unity mean? Does this mean all Christians must belong to the same demonination or Church? Does this mean all Churches should become one grand Church. No! Unity of purpose and voice is what this means. We have all read the moto, United we stand, Divided we fall. In this world who gets heard? Those that are unafraid to speak out and join together as a group for strength and solidarity. Christians have been absent from their duty by their collective silence. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr said in one of his speechs, “It is not the BAD people who have caused all the problems in this world. It is the GOOD people, who through their apathy, fear, and SILENCE, have enabled the BAD people to do bad things”.
This nation and the Body of Christ needs to work for a common purpose, Restoring this Nation to Christ. Christ is the King. Let Him rule over our land.
In His Name. Rev. Maxwell Diener
