DIVISIONS AMONG YOU


Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Mark 3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

Mark 3:27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

Brothers, we the Church must not be divided. A kingdom divided can not stand, 3:24 above. We must stand in love with our brothers and not allow the devil to divide us and cause us to fall by magnifying a difference between us with the influence of hate. It comes by claiming to be the spirit of non-compromise.


Men's doctrines now divide us, not the word of God. We must stand on the truth of His word and have no denominational differences between our brothers in Christ Jesus.


All denominations are man made. Jesus did not teach us to be divided. In the book of John Chapter 17 he prayed to the Father that we would be one just as Jesus and the Father are one.

1Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

We yet walk as men and not as Children of God when we allow divisions, envying, and strife to come between us. Brothers the above referenced scriptures are foundational scriptures. These are those that we stand on as we walk in oneness with Jesus.

Mark 4:23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Mark 4:24 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.

Mark 4:25 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

Brothers, we are to take our heavenly ears and hear what God is teaching us, but we are to be careful with what we measure it for it will be measured back to us. His word is telling us that if we hear his word and apply it to our hearts then we will be given even more of his truth. 

But if we do not hear, then that that He has given us will be taken away. This is a very powerful statement. It is our responsibility to hear his word and to grow up into a mature Christian and if we do not we will be made more carnal and less spiritual.

1Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

1Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Our spirit searches for the deep things of God's Holy Spirit. Brothers, please feed your spirit that that God has and will send to you by his very own Holy Spirit.

1Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

1Corinthians 2:3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

1Corinthians 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

1Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

Brothers, we are not to preach with enticing words of man's wisdom, but rather in demonstration of the Spirit of God and power.


Walk and teach in the word of God not in what some man has mandated for you, but what God has and will teach you, if only you will receive His Holy Spirit.

1Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.

1Corinthians 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

1Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

If we are still carnal and worldly then we are walking in envy, strife and divided from our brothers in Christ Jesus. As a young Christian we needed to be fed with the milk of God's word. 

But, God expects of us to grow in maturity as a Christian so that we might be able to take of the meat of His word. Brothers, do not stay a babe and be able to only take milk.

But, grow up in his word by reading every day and asking the Holy Spirit to teach you. He surely will put you on the path to maturity. Just as a baby needs fed every day, so to does not only a babe in Christ Jesus, but also a mature christian. 

Brothers, stay in reading aloud the word of God daily, and you will grow into a mature Christian. Only a mature Christian can serve God. 

Please seek God's truth. His word is truth, and his word is meat for your your spiritual growth. Desire the sincere word of truth, and do not allow men to separate you from both your brothers in Christ Jesus, and from your maturity in God's holy word. 

God Bless you my brothers,
