DIVISION

DIVISION

GOD HATES DIVISION. Yes, there are things the Lord abhors, read your Bible. Division is and always has been a tool of the enemy- divide and conquer. We are stronger together and the devil knows if he can pick off the sheep one by one, he can destroy the whole flock. Satan will use discontent and fan it out to stir up more discontent like a whirlwind leaving behind chaos and destruction.

Beware of anyone sowing seeds of discontent; they are divisive and being used by the enemy to destroy. Here’s a good description of the divisive, “A divisive person intentionally, actively, and repeatedly rubs raw the resentments of people within a community, fans the latent hostilities of many people, searches out controversy and issues rather than avoiding them, and stirs up dissatisfaction and discontent.” Instead of seeking peace, the divisive fan the flames of your discontent and will look for ways to introduce their accusations so that you will take on their offense. They subtly gossip and slander under the guise of, “We need to pray for them!” They are accusers of the brethren, quick to take offense, especially in the areas of money and children.

Just ask any children’s or youth pastor. These divisive people say to brethren, “This pastor just wants our money.” A few years ago, the Lord spoke to my husband to get the church out of debt. So we did a building campaign for the first time ever in the history of our church. It was completely voluntary. There was no coercion.

During the second year of this campaign, a family was upset that we gave a large sum of money to another church. They expressed their disdain to a few other families saying, “it is not right to give money to help another church when we are paying off our church”. The devil is so sly. 100% of the building fund goes to paying off the building.

Do you not have different accounts? Do you not have a personal savings account, checking account, and retirement account? Why do you even care? And instead of expressing your discontent with others, spreading doubt and division; why would you not just ask someone who knows the truth? Everyone in our church community has access to anyone’s phone number and address.

Our church body lives life together. And because you get others to agree with your disdain, you think God is pleased. Division is not only godless, it is cowardly. Friend, this is how the enemy works to spread division. You find these divisive people in any community, job, or organization, and especially the church because wolves are attracted to sheep. The enemy is seeking whom he may devour and he is not playing around; his time is short.

Be on high alert and guard your heart and your brethren against the divisive. The righteous are bold. When you hear divisive talk, you need to address it and stop it in its tracks. “Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition, knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.” Titus‬ ‭3:10-11‬ ‭#runyourrace
