BACKGROUND This page contains video excerpts from message five of the 2002 message series, “Oneness and the One Accord.”
The first five messages in this series were given during the Midwest-area Labor Day weekend conference in Cleveland, Ohio. In these messages brother Titus considered this matter of oneness according to who God is, in the Lord’s living on the earth, as seen in the Lord’s prayer in John 17, and in the example of the early church in the book of Acts. He then went on to consider how the apostle Paul dealt with the matter of oneness in Romans, Ephesians, and Philippians.
Messages six and seven were given to the saints in the metro-Cleveland area in the fall conference on October 26-27, and covered the matter of oneness as it is seen in the book of Colossians.
The complete series of messages are now available as the book, “Oneness and the One Accord.” Also, the complete audio messages are also available on this site. Both the book and the audio messages may be accessed via the “Also Available…” link below.

The Living Out of the Oneness
|Length:||3 minutes 11 seconds|
After covering Genesis, the gospels, Acts, Romans, and Ephesians we come to the book of Philippians. Philippians shows us the living out of the oneness as luminaries. The living out of the oneness as luminaries is through three things: One living, one pursuing, and one fellowship.
The Oneness Among the Lord, the Apostle, and the Church
There was a oneness among the Lord, the Apostle Paul, and the church in Philippi. Christ was the center. Then with Christ there was the apostle, who cared for the saints in the “inward parts” of Christ Jesus (Phil. 1:8; literally, “bowels”). The saints, in turn, had the apostle in their heart and loved the Lord through the help of the apostle. Such a oneness shows us that no Christian can live the Christian life by himself.
To Know Him and the Power of His Resurrection
|Length:||1 minute 21 seconds|
To know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings (Phil. 3:10) is a matter of experience. First we know Him, then we have the power of His resurrection, which leads us into the fellowship of His sufferings, which, in turn, is for our growth.
Being One by Having the Saints in Your Heart
Oneness doesn’t come by different brothers agreeing to do things together, but by having the saints in our heart (cf. Phil. 1:8).
Pursuing the Lord to Gain Him
|Length:||3 minutes 7 seconds|
To pursue the Lord we must in a sense “persecute” Him by not letting Him go (Phil. 3:12; The Greek word translated “pursue” can also be translated as “persecute.”). The Lord has already gained us; now we need to gain Him by pursuing Him, even to the point of “persecuting” Him.
