Divisive or United?

Published by Rob Skiba December 27, 2014 at 2:51 PM

Luke 12:

51 “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. 52 For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

I think I really understand these verses now. The above variety of “division” in the home started as soon as Yeshua stepped onto the public scene declaring Who He was. When not healing and ministering to those who would listen, He had to spend the rest of His time fighting with the Pharisees and religious leaders, overturning the “traditions of men” which were contrary to the Word of God. You have to know, for those who looked up to the “religeous leaders” of the day, Yeshua was a VERY divisive individual, stirring up LOTS of trouble and strife.

Mark 7:6 And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written,

“‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; 7 in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

8 You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.”

9 And he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition!”

It is truly eye-opening to see how pefectly these very words have played out over this past week. I may have lost 30+ so-called “friends” on Facebook over the X-mess season of Nimrod (whose name means “we shall rebel”), but I’m just going to say this now: I shall continue to be “divisive” in the truth, rather than “united” in deception. I can’t just “play the game” anymore. Either YHWH’s Word is true or it’s not. And frankly, I don’t care what the “church” has been doing for 1,700 years. If their practices aren’t rooted in Scripture, and can’t be traced back to AT LEAST the first century, I’m not interested in what any so-called “early church father” or “theologian” has to say. So, going into another calendar year, you might as well decide right now whether you are ready to “deal with it” or (please) go ahead de-friend me now.
