  1. 1. Division “In the word DIVISION we have the word "vision" which means "the act or power of sensing with the eyes" or "the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be. An experience in which a person thing or event appears vividly.” “Division is something that divides or separates a partition, or one of the parts in which a thing is divided. The prefix "di" occurs in loan words from Greek meaning two, twice, or double.” “The spirit of strife or division hovers boldly in and around the church and attaches itself to certain members of the body who refuse to walk in the Spirit- fulfilling the commandments of our Lord to love and choosing not follow the commands of the flesh. All of these people outwardly appear to be men and women of God. They have perfect attendance in church services, or are almost always involved in every activity. When disputes or arguments and the like arise, they are almost always involved whether they initiated the disputes or are a participant of it. There appears to be in almost every place at least one individual oppressed with these spirits and sadly those aware do not rebuke them but allow them to operate, therefore causing havoc in the body of Christ.”
  2. 2. Matthew 24:10-12 “A few who will stand on the truth of His word will love and stand for the truth at any cost, and will love and forgive and unite all their brothers.” “Division is a result of man's tendency to limit God with their own way of thinking.” “God instructs us not to lean to our own understanding for the reason that His ways are not ours and His understanding has no limits while ours does.” “Division amongst God’s adversary is normal because they are self-seeking and this is natural divides as each individual regards his own way as superior. This is a form of pride.” “Division is a degree of confusion and chaos and that is outside of God’s character. The Lord is a God of order.” “When you turn to Christ you correct your own errors opposed to worrying about the errors of your brothers. When you are quick to point error in your brothers you are putting your standard above God’s.” “A person who causes division is in heresy. Heresy is an opinion, especially a self-willed opinion which is substituted for submission to the power of
  3. 3. truth and it leads to division.” 2 Peter 2:1-3 1 Corinthians 11:18-19 “A heresy that leads to division is physical evidence to God’s disapproval. The ones who stand by each other in unity are obliviously following Jesus teaching. Some who stay may not be approved, but those who leave are definitely disapproved, similar to the wheat and tare. It isn’t until harvest that the tares are exposed.” Characteristics of a divisive person: Cause offences (Romans 16:17) (Gk – Offences – a snare, to trip up or sin against God) Do not follow New Testament teaching (Romans 16:17, Acts 15:36- 40, Galatians 1:6-9) They do not serve the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:15-20) They serve from their own belly (Romans 16:18) They operate in themselves (1 Corinthians 1:10-17, their works are found in Galatians 5:16-21) They seek recognition among their brothers (1 Corinthians 11:18-19) They don’t care about other members of Jesus’ body (1 Corinthians 12:25) They are grumblers and complainers (Jude 16) They walk in their own lust (Jude 16)
  4. 4. They flatter people with their speech in order to gain an advantage (Jude 16) They are mockers (Jude 18) They are worldly minded (Jude 19) They do have the Holy Spirit (Jude 19) How can division end: Repentance Restoration – return of something to a former, original, normal, or unimpaired condition Return “It takes humility in those who were causing division to admit that they were wrong, but it will take a greater humility to return.” “When you are exposed and you fight it that is also division.” “Unless you repent wholeheartedly you can’t be restored.” “It was never God’s purposes to have two brothers to remain in division. It's whole purpose was to reunite, restore and bring them back together again.” We cannot have true reconciliation until we are willing to tear down the walls the separate us.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
