A House Divided Cannot Stand

Mark 3:24-25 New International Version (NIV)

If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

The devil doesn’t want the church of God to stand because its only when we stand that we can step on his neck and crush him underneath our feet.

Of course, he doesn’t want us to stand, of course is going to try to divide us, he knows that a house divided cannot stand he’s going to try everything within his power to divide the family of God.

Let me give you a couple examples the enemy is ahead of us at this time.

In Acts 2: 42-47 helps us to understand that one of the reasons why the first church exploded the way they did was because the unity. Think about it, they worship in the same place consistently, they all had one mine and they saw everything they own as a whole and not as individuals, unity was one of the big reasons why the church grows in the beginning.

There are believers that have become so comfortable with distance from the house of God and the family of God, that they merely see worshiping together as an inconvenient scheduling conflict on an already busy schedule.

The reason is obvious, just go back to the first church, they worship together as a family consistently it was a key part of the church being healthy and powerful that’s a crucial part in unity. We have to fight for unity especially in the house of the Lord, and it’s not good if we aren’t worshiping together, how will we ever experience the power of unity that the first church experienced when they worship together so consistently.

We have come to a place where we have let what divides us become what defines us, but it’s long past due that what unites us and what describes us is Jesus Christ.

Colossians 3:11 New Living Translation (NLT)

11 In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and He lives in all of us.

The enemy is a note taker, and he hates his notes on unity, some believers are under the wrong impression when it comes to the enemy, they believe that the enemy is all knowing, only God is all knowing. That’s why the enemy takes notes, and he’s been taking notes since the beginning. If we would be able to look at the enemy’s notebook and see the notes he’s been taking since the beginning of time, we would see he wrote “be careful unity get answers.”

Matthew 18:19 New Living Translation (NLT)

“I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.

How do you judge others, how do you judge yourself, how would you like to be judged. Typically, we judge others by their action, and we judge ourselves by our intentions.

If you began to judge that person you are most frustrated with by their best moments and not their worse, what would happen. You would draw nearer to that person not farther away.

The enemy has us judging them by their worst moments, none of us look good when you are being judged by your worst moment, if we are to walk in unity, we can’t judge based on their worst movement.

TAKE A MINUTE: I want you to think that about that person you are frustrated with and make a mental note of all the reasons why you are so distance from them.

You see, God looks at that person you are so frustrated with the same way He looks at you. Don’t you think it grieves Him to watch you be so frustrated with that person, that person that He loves deeply.

Now, take those mental notes you made and burn them!

Life is too short to be judging that person, life is to short to be staying away from them.

It’s time for you to fight for unity with one another. We have to come against the one who has been getting in between us, dividing us, so we won’t ever experience God’s response to our unity and God’s commanded blessings.

We have to fight for unity in the name of Jesus Christ!

God Bless, Israel
