And though one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12 Amplified bible
Commonly called the three fold cord in other translations. There is so much knowledge in the bible that it will take us into eternity with the joy of uncovering the manifold wisdom of God, things that seem unrelated are in fact central to the existence and the wisdom of something else. We all see every verse through our own unique eyes and mindsets given to us from the Father while still in our mothers womb. Even going back to a bible verse you know and re-reading it under the unction of the Holy Spirit you will eke out a different hitherto unknown view, idea, revelation of knowledge and understanding about it. It is so exciting looking into the wisdom of God, asking Him questions about His Word for James says that if any of us lacks wisdom we should ask, so I did, the following is a revelation that I had in regards to the three fold cord and why it is so important to be righteously connected with people, good people together can do some things, God called connected people can do the impossible. Chose your relationships and who you allow into your life and its journey wisely and with Gods help in revelation, accepting some, walking around others politely.
The first part of the revelation came when I was pondering on what it meant when it says that the bible is a Sword and part of it has to do with the colours of the three fold cord. Blue is always revelation, it is the prophetic colour in what ever form that revelation takes be it – teaching, for the future, understanding and seeing in the spiritual realm – discernment, to know how to pray supernaturally rather than relying on our own knowledge, in among the myriad of other types of revelations. Solomon had revelations about how the world worked, plants, animals etc Red represents sacrificial love, a love that will lay down its own life, interests, will, desires, ambitions and give them over for a greater purpose. Jesus died on the Cross under the unction of Love, the highest calling of humanity. 1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us [unselfishly] love and seek the best for one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves [others] is born of God and knows God [through personal experience]. Yellow has in it the joy of the Lord being our strength, for Hebrews 12:2 [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the JOY [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work].
With this revelation in my mind I saw that people themselves manifest the colour that is primary to who they are and what God created them to do at that part of their lives. Mine for this season of my life is obviously Blue, I have been promised that it will change to Red later in my life, but for this season I need revelations like this to deepen my relationship with God and for the benefit of the spreading of the Gospel. Knowledge is an interesting thing, I see some chase knowledge before they have their relationship with God even opened by commitment to following Him and seeking His face and will as the first and foremost need of the Christian walk, in other words – humility. What this pursuit of knowledge does is produce arrogance in the learned one rather than wisdom. Seek Jesus Christ and to know Him before all else, you do not need all my knowledge either, what use is it to you if your calling is to be an Accountant? So do not be a constant teaching chaser but get closer to Jesus and He will give you your own revelation in regards to what He has created you for. You do not need all my knowledge, you need your own revelations from God that are specific to your calling and destiny. Galations 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.
The three fold cord is – in my revelation – a combination of three people with each of these colours as their primary base or foundational colour, they can do anything together, the impossible, please ask the Father that you become rightly aligned with the people who you can do the impossible with and do not allow yourselves to get caught up in useless fruitless relationships or they will distract you and bring you down, draining you dry with fruitless works and their selfish ambitions. Make your three fold cord as pure as possible and as each of you bring the attributes of your colour, you can do anything in godly unity.
