Have you noticed how many times you have witnessed a divided church, a divided family, a divided workplace?
Jesus tells us that there are only TWO bleak futures for such a group …
“However, knowing what they were thinking, Yeshua said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not survive.” (Matthew 12:25, CJB)
1) Divided peoples will be RUINED!
Simply stated, the end of a divided group is a massive wasteland of death and disintegration. What’s even more tragic is that these people can’t control the result without repentance and unity. Their divisiveness acts upon them, making them desolate, laying waste to their group like a plague or conquering army.
2) Divided people groups will NOT SURVIVE!
Jesus also tells us that these divided groups simply will not continue to exist. They will pull themselves apart and dissolve from the fractures they create due to their selfishness and argumentation.
Unfortunately, as we see in context with Jesus’ words here, it is often the “know it all” leadership of the local community that has been in place for decades that tear the people of faith apart.
