DIVISION- When Everyone Wants Things Their Own Way, No Clear Leadership, and No Desire To Follow. A House Divided Against Itself CAN NOT STAND.
Strategic Life Lesson 110: “Di-Vision” by ++Joshua Paul
You can not build any type of relationship whether it be personal, business, or ministry if you allow division to into the equation. “Successful Relationships” are built upon the UNIFYING of two Visionaries, with “like” vision, shared goals, pursuing the same desired outcomes and destination. “DI-VISION” = is the result of two Visionaries whose sight and perceptions are set on different outcomes, and their actions and objectives continue to point in different or opposing directions. “Di-Vision” = will ALWAYS destroy a relationship of any kind.
“A VISIONARY” – must be STRONG enough to maintain and guard the Kingdom Vision God has given him or her with their life. The Visionary, must be strategic in choosing any and all business partnerships in Ministry, Marriage, or Entrepreneur Business Partnerships. Based on Kingdom principles you as the Visionary must identify, and avoid “Di-Vision” or those who operate in the spirit of divisiveness. You must also warn all those tied to The Kingdom Vision that God has given you, to avoid all parties who cause or operate in divisive ways.
Mark 3:24-27 (KJV) 24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
27 No man can enter into A STRONG MAN’S house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
Mark 3:20-30 (MSG) 20 Jesus came home and, as usual, a crowd gathered—so many making demands on him that there wasn’t even time to eat.
21 His friends heard what was going on and went to rescue him, by force if necessary. They suspected he was getting carried away with himself.
22 The religion scholars from Jerusalem came down spreading rumors that he was working black magic, using devil tricks to impress them with spiritual power. 23 Jesus confronted their slander with a story: “Does it make sense to send a devil to catch a devil, to use Satan to get rid of Satan? 24 A constantly squabbling family disintegrates. If Satan were fighting Satan, there soon wouldn’t be any Satan left. (25 26)
27 Do you think it’s possible in broad daylight to enter the house of an awake, able-bodied man, and walk off with his possessions unless you tie him up first? Tie him up, though, and you can clean him out. 28 “Listen to this carefully. I’m warning you. There’s nothing done or said that can’t be forgiven.
29 But if you persist in your slanders against God’s Holy Spirit, you are repudiating the very One who forgives, sawing off the branch on which you’re sitting, severing by your own perversity all connection with the One who forgives.” 30 He gave this warning because they were accusing him of being in league with Evil.
“Di-Vision” – we are in a season where we must review and analyze our partnerships, and confirm that we are still tied to the same goals, objectives, and destinations. If your Visions are causing “Di-Visions” that have been declared irreconcilable, we must develop the courage to swiftly dissolve the partnership and seek business partners that share the same Kingdom Vision.
Romans 16:17-18 (KJV) 17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
Romans 16:17-18 (MSG) 17 One final word of counsel, friends. Keep a sharp eye out for those who take bits and pieces of the teaching that you learned and then use them to make trouble. Give these people a wide berth. 18 They have no intention of living for our Master Christ. They’re only in this for what they can get out of it, and aren’t above using pious sweet talk to dupe unsuspecting innocents.
