Jesus came to divide us...

Luke 12: 49 - 53

"I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled!  I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished!  Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division; for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three; they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

Jesus is the Prince of Peace.  Jesus is Love.  How is it that He came to divide the earth?  

You either belong to the camp that believes, loves, follows Jesus and His Words, or the camp that does not believe, does not love nor want to follow His words.  Two camps will clash constantly until He comes again.  You don't have to look far to see this is true.  In our society today, we have those who believe murdering the unborn is a right to be done out of the convenience of the mother who carries the baby in her womb.  Opposing these pro-aborts are us pro-lifers who will stand to defend the unborn every chance they get.  Another example:   we have those who believe it is a normal way of life for men to have sexual relations with men, and women to have sexual relations with women. They demand we accept it as normal and want to force it upon our traditional institutions.  Then, there are those of us who heed the word of God in regards to same sex "marriages" and know it is an abomination to the Lord.  And we speak out against this agenda which is forcing us to accept that which is contrary to nature's laws and God's laws. 

Other examples are those found in families:  some believe living in sin, living a life without God is OK.  This brings much division when other family members do follow God and his Commandments.  It could make for awkward moments during the family get togethers...

What Jesus is really saying is His Truth reveals sin.  It is SIN that divides us.  Jesus uncovers the reality of sin, and the majority of the world doesn't want to accept it.  The earth doesn't want His peace...the earth doesn't want His love...the earth does not want Him...

Come Lord Jesus, in Your glory soon!
