Division (Good & Bad)
Good Division is necessary to have Eternal Life with Jesus.
Luke 12:51 (KJV) – Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
Jesus presented a whole new way of life. This was not peaceful. Jesus came to separate the eternal from the carnal. He came to divide heaven and hell. He came to give people a chance to receive Life; a life separate from this world we live in. The Good Division is found in choosing Jesus as the only Way to the Father.
Romans 16:17 (NIV) – I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.
Bad Division is found when the devil executes “divide and conquer” on God’s Church.
Romans 3:23 (NIV) – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
No matter what language you interpret this verse into; we all must have Jesus in our hearts to overcome the life of sin destined to us without Him.
Romans 10:13 (NKJV) – For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Jesus saves all those who call on His name. It does not matter what language your Bible is, French, English, Guarani or Greek. It does not matter how you exalt His name. God sees the heart and knows a believer by their heart.
DO NOT LET THE DECEIVER DECEIVE YOU INTO THINKING YOU ARE BETTER THAN OTHER CHRISTIANS.
It is only by the righteousness of Jesus Christ that we can stand before God Almighty. Nothing we have done in this world or of ourselves makes us better than anybody else. When we compare ourselves to other churches, we divide ourselves from the church. God loves us all the same and Unity in the Spirit is essential to share the Love of God.
We are one in the Holy Spirit. Do not let judgements of men deceive you.
1 Corinthians 12:12 (NASB) – For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.
