22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebub,” and, “By the ruler of the demons He casts out demons.”
23 So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: “How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. 27 No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
Greetings Beloved Brothers and Sisters,
In the above text Jesus gives a parable which is relevant for today's Church. Two of the biggest problems in the body of Christ today is disunity and the weakness of the saints. Jesus is addressing the religious people of that day after he has healed the man with the withered hand on the Sabbath day which they thought was a violation of the Law. Have you encountered that religious spirit in your local congregation? It is amazing what religious folks call sin and what sin they tend to overlook. Jesus expose Satan greatest strategy against the church besides unbelief which is disunity. The scripture declares," If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand." Houses or Kingdoms cannot stand when there is disunity in their midst. Disunity is what birth many of the religious denominations. We must be reminded that we are the "Body of Christ"...many members but one body. Disunity weakens the whole body. 1 Corinthians 12:15-19..."If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be?" I decree and declare that in 2012 there will be a great move of unity in the body of Christ and the super natural will be more present in the churches such as miracles of healing, deliverance, protection, provision and power will begin to manifest again. The church without spot or wrinkle will come forth. If one can chase a thousand and two can put ten thousand to flight... can you imagine what is going to happen when the body of Christ come together! This is a call for the Kingdom of God to come together and be strengthen...remember two is better than one therefore; do you part to get rid of the divisions between brothers and sisters in your church.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
