Bishop Robert lifts the veil on what the Holy Spirit has been doing across the globe, inflaming hearts of believers everywhere to fulfill Christ’s prayer. Today God is moving His Church to the place of unity we see in John 17! Count To One lays a simple and compelling foundation every believer can stand upon, examining the issues and answering the questions everyone asks about overcoming the barriers to genuine Christian unity.
God gave Bishop Robert an interesting task one day in prayer, telling him “I am teaching you to count to one!” The lesson was to be found in a simple truth revealed in the pages of the scriptures. The Lord’s determination to see the unity of His Body restored and His desire to see the power of His glory displayed to a lost and dying world will strike you with deliberate force as you take in the message of Count To One.
Christ desires to see His Body as one – a powerful and life-changing reflection of His own ministry on earth, and Bishop Robert lays out the principles that every believer in Jesus can use to begin breaking down the barriers that have held them back and building bridges of unity in the Body of Christ. Using a combination of fascinating historical insight and refreshingly simple applications of scripture, Bishop Robert leads you down the path to real freedom to love your brothers and sisters in Christ in a new and effective way.
Read the book and meet the family you never believed you had. Welcome home!
Down through the pages of history it is evident that whenever Christ followers have expressed their faith in unity they have powerfully impacted their world. Count to One reminds us that we are able to release the power of God as we live, work and pray in unity. Living in a world that is plagued with conflict, fear and disharmony we have a unique opportunity to start a 'unity' revolution with our brothers and sisters in Christ from every racial, cultural,economic, political and denominational background. As we stand together we can practically live out the gospel of Jesus displaying His love to a lost and hurting world. Now is a time to use our diversity as a platform for unity and to show the world that we are His disciples as we truly love one another (John 13:35).
I have known and worked with Bishop Robert on some of the most sensitive international issues that I have engaged as Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law & Justice. His timely and important call for unity is the right message at this critical juncture. Count to One is a must read.
'Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity.' This well preached and often sung verse holds the key to a release of the power of God's Spirit that few have experienced because it is so seldom practiced! In this, his first published work, Bishop Robert re-examines the critical events and times that separated believers, and robbed the Church of her intended authority and power. This message taps into the truth of the Gospel and holds the key to worldwide revival when millions will be swept into the Kingdom of God in a great last days demonstration of the power of the one true Living God; 'for there the Lord commands His blessing, even life forevermore.'
Bishop Robert has a deep love for God and for the people of God, and an unwavering faith in the purposes to which the Church has been called.In Count to One, Bishop Robert challenges us as brothers and sisters - a family in faith - to examine our common and collective identity in Christ. Our society - both nationally and globally - is tremendously fragmented and fractured. He reminds us (in a fashion that is compelling, scripturally-grounded, and well-reasoned) of the directive we have received from our Father God to stand on the common ground that is the gospel, and to function together in a way that is cohesive,complementary, and mutually edifying. Only when we live out the unity we were created for, can we powerfully fulfill God's calling on each of us, and the mission He has for the Church. Bishop Robert's is a timely and powerful exhortation for the Church in our time.
Count to One is a passionate and majestic call to contend for Christian unity. As one who has prayed and dreamed and hoped for a miraculous and tangible breakthrough in unity across the historic streams of our faith, I confess this book is unlike any I have read. If your heart cries and your eyes weep for the coming together of the Body of Christ, you must join Bishop Robert on his amazing journey of revelation. 'Together. Unstoppable. One Body.'
