  • Now i wanna show you something in matthew 12 because --
  • 00:02:51.884 --> 00:02:54.721
  • In matthew 12 because -- this is what matthew 12 --
  • 00:02:54.787 --> 00:02:56.122
  • This is what matthew 12 -- jesus in verse 25 said,
  • 00:02:56.189 --> 00:02:58.625
  • Jesus in verse 25 said, "but jesus knew their thoughts,
  • 00:02:58.691 --> 00:02:59.892
  • "but jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them:
  • 00:02:59.959 --> 00:03:00.860
  • And said to them: 'now watch the progression now.
  • 00:03:00.927 --> 00:03:02.862
  • 'now watch the progression now. watch it.'
  • 00:03:02.929 --> 00:03:03.963
  • Watch it.' "every kingdom divided against
  • 00:03:04.030 --> 00:03:07.433
  • "every kingdom divided against itself is brought
  • 00:03:07.500 --> 00:03:08.835
  • Itself is brought to desolation."
  • 00:03:08.901 --> 00:03:09.869
  • To desolation." i just want to pause right there
  • 00:03:09.936 --> 00:03:10.903
  • I just want to pause right there and i want you to give me
  • 00:03:10.970 --> 00:03:11.871
  • And i want you to give me your full attention because
  • 00:03:11.938 --> 00:03:12.939
  • Your full attention because this is powerful.
  • 00:03:13.006 --> 00:03:15.341
  • This is powerful. any kingdom that is divided
  • 00:03:15.408 --> 00:03:18.111
  • Any kingdom that is divided against itself will
  • 00:03:18.177 --> 00:03:21.314
  • Against itself will be brought to desolation
  • 00:03:21.381 --> 00:03:23.850
  • Be brought to desolation if they don't deal with it.
  • 00:03:23.916 --> 00:03:27.053
  • If they don't deal with it. and then he goes even
  • 00:03:27.120 --> 00:03:28.688
  • And then he goes even lower from kingdom.
  • 00:03:28.755 --> 00:03:30.323
  • Lower from kingdom. "and every city that is divided
  • 00:03:30.390 --> 00:03:32.925
  • "and every city that is divided will come to desolation.
  • 00:03:32.992 --> 00:03:34.994
  • Will come to desolation. and every house 'the family,
  • 00:03:35.061 --> 00:03:37.363
  • And every house 'the family, the home that is divided will
  • 00:03:37.430 --> 00:03:39.365
  • The home that is divided will come to desolation against
  • 00:03:39.432 --> 00:03:41.834
  • Come to desolation against itself will not stand."
  • 00:03:41.901 --> 00:03:43.369
  • Itself will not stand." and then he goes one layer
  • 00:03:43.436 --> 00:03:44.437
  • And then he goes one layer lower and he says,
  • 00:03:44.504 --> 00:03:45.638
  • Lower and he says, "and if satan cast out satan,"
  • 00:03:45.705 --> 00:03:47.507
  • "and if satan cast out satan," watch these words,
  • 00:03:47.573 --> 00:03:48.574
  • Watch these words, "he," or you,
  • 00:03:48.641 --> 00:03:49.575
  • "he," or you, it's a principle,
  • 00:03:49.642 --> 00:03:51.177
  • It's a principle, "is divided against himself;
  • 00:03:51.244 --> 00:03:54.314
  • "is divided against himself; how shall then his
  • 00:03:54.380 --> 00:03:55.214
  • How shall then his kingdom stand?""
  • 00:03:55.281 --> 00:03:57.383
  • Kingdom stand?"" so you go from a divided
  • 00:03:57.450 --> 00:03:58.618
  • So you go from a divided kingdom to a divided city,
  • 00:03:58.685 --> 00:04:01.654
  • Kingdom to a divided city, to a divided house,
  • 00:04:01.721 --> 00:04:03.589
  • To a divided house, to a divided individual.
  • 00:04:03.656 --> 00:04:06.292
  • To a divided individual. but notice if you flip that
  • 00:04:06.359 --> 00:04:07.560
  • But notice if you flip that around you get the way that it
  • 00:04:07.627 --> 00:04:09.362
  • Around you get the way that it ends up being a divided kingdom.
  • 00:04:09.429 --> 00:04:11.230
  • Ends up being a divided kingdom. it starts with the individual
  • 00:04:11.297 --> 00:04:13.499
  • It starts with the individual who becomes divided from
  • 00:04:13.566 --> 00:04:14.701
  • Who becomes divided from god and his word,
  • 00:04:14.767 --> 00:04:16.002
  • God and his word, more and more distant from god.
  • 00:04:16.069 --> 00:04:18.371
  • More and more distant from god. and then that division
  • 00:04:18.438 --> 00:04:19.739
  • And then that division of not being close to him,
  • 00:04:19.806 --> 00:04:22.942
  • Of not being close to him, being one with him suddenly
  • 00:04:23.009 --> 00:04:26.112
  • Being one with him suddenly it spreads to the house.
  • 00:04:26.179 --> 00:04:28.247
  • It spreads to the house. if you invert it goes from
  • 00:04:28.314 --> 00:04:30.149
  • If you invert it goes from the individual to the house,
  • 00:04:30.216 --> 00:04:32.051
  • The individual to the house, suddenly the marriage
  • 00:04:32.118 --> 00:04:33.286
  • Suddenly the marriage is divided,
  • 00:04:33.353 --> 00:04:34.387
  • Is divided, the family is divided.
  • 00:04:34.454 --> 00:04:37.023
  • The family is divided. and then from the house
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:38.257
  • And then from the house it goes to the city,
  • 00:04:38.324 --> 00:04:40.560
  • It goes to the city, and then from the city
  • 00:04:40.626 --> 00:04:42.028
  • And then from the city it goes to the nation
  • 00:04:42.095 --> 00:04:43.229
  • It goes to the nation or the kingdom.
  • 00:04:43.296 --> 00:04:45.531
  • Or the kingdom. but it all comes back down
  • 00:04:45.598 --> 00:04:46.899
  • But it all comes back down to the individual relationship
  • 00:04:46.966 --> 00:04:49.102
  • To the individual relationship with jesus christ.
  • 00:04:49.168 --> 00:04:50.370
  • With jesus christ. if we would all fall in love
  • 00:04:50.436 --> 00:04:52.271
  • If we would all fall in love and be one with him then
  • 00:04:52.338 --> 00:04:53.873
  • And be one with him then it would affect the house,
  • 00:04:53.940 --> 00:04:55.274
  • It would affect the house, it would heal the divide,
  • 00:04:55.341 --> 00:04:56.676
  • It would heal the divide, it would affect the city,
  • 00:04:56.743 --> 00:04:58.144
  • It would affect the city, it would heal the divide,
  • 00:04:58.211 --> 00:04:59.679
  • It would heal the divide, it would effect the nation,
  • 00:04:59.746 --> 00:05:01.280
  • It would effect the nation, it would heal the divide.
  • 00:05:01.347 --> 00:05:03.116
  • It would heal the divide. not that we would
  • 00:05:03.182 --> 00:05:03.950
  • Not that we would agree on everything,
  • 00:05:04.016 --> 00:05:05.451
  • Agree on everything, but we would love one another
  • 00:05:05.518 --> 00:05:07.120
  • But we would love one another because "by this shall all men
  • 00:05:07.186 --> 00:05:09.021
  • Because "by this shall all men know that you're my disciples."
  • 00:05:09.088 --> 00:05:10.790
  • Know that you're my disciples." not that you go to church
  • 00:05:10.857 --> 00:05:11.891
  • Not that you go to church and talk a lot about the bible,
  • 00:05:11.958 --> 00:05:13.793
  • And talk a lot about the bible, but that you really love people.
  • 00:05:13.860 --> 00:05:18.131
  • But that you really love people. now this is the last prayer
  • 00:05:18.197 --> 00:05:19.932
  • Now this is the last prayer that jesus prayed in john 17,
  • 00:05:19.999 --> 00:05:23.870
  • That jesus prayed in john 17, in the garden of gethsemane.
  • 00:05:23.936 --> 00:05:26.172
  • In the garden of gethsemane. and he said, "i do not pray
  • 00:05:26.239 --> 00:05:27.507
  • And he said, "i do not pray for these alone,
  • 00:05:27.573 --> 00:05:29.108
  • For these alone, but also for those who believe
  • 00:05:29.175 --> 00:05:30.543
  • But also for those who believe in me and through the word;
  • 00:05:30.610 --> 00:05:32.512
  • In me and through the word; 'go to the verse.'
  • 00:05:32.578 --> 00:05:33.579
  • 'go to the verse.' that they may be one."
  • 00:05:33.646 --> 00:05:38.818
  • That they may be one." i'm praying -- and the literal
  • 00:05:38.885 --> 00:05:41.687
  • I'm praying -- and the literal king james says,
  • 00:05:41.754 --> 00:05:42.688
  • King james says, "i do not pray for the world."
  • 00:05:42.755 --> 00:05:45.191
  • "i do not pray for the world." jesus said, "i'm not praying
  • 00:05:45.258 --> 00:05:46.492
  • Jesus said, "i'm not praying for the world to get
  • 00:05:46.559 --> 00:05:47.760
  • For the world to get their act together.
  • 00:05:47.827 --> 00:05:48.828
  • Their act together. i'm praying for my church,
  • 00:05:48.895 --> 00:05:52.398
  • I'm praying for my church, my disciples to be one as you,
  • 00:05:52.465 --> 00:05:56.469
  • My disciples to be one as you, father, are in me, and i in you,
  • 00:05:56.536 --> 00:06:00.239
  • Father, are in me, and i in you, and that they may be one in us,
  • 00:06:00.306 --> 00:06:03.810
  • And that they may be one in us, then the world will believe
  • 00:06:03.876 --> 00:06:06.112
  • Then the world will believe that you sent me."
  • 00:06:06.179 --> 00:06:07.013

  • The conflict can become so ferocious that sometimes
  • 00:09:09.161 --> 00:09:11.631

  • When christian fight christian, when pastor fights pastor,
  • 00:09:26.278 --> 00:09:27.913
  • When pastor fights pastor, denomination fights
  • 00:09:27.980 --> 00:09:28.914
  • Denomination fights denomination,
  • 00:09:28.981 --> 00:09:30.182

  • 'jesus said' that he would make you one.
  • 00:10:13.092 --> 00:10:14.560
  • That he would make you one. cause if you stand as one
  • 00:10:14.627 --> 00:10:16.729
  • Cause if you stand as one and not fight each other
  • 00:10:16.796 --> 00:10:18.130
  • And not fight each other the enemy knows of he can get
  • 00:10:18.197 --> 00:10:19.598
  • The enemy knows of he can get family against family,
  • 00:10:19.665 --> 00:10:21.100
  • Family against family, if he can get --
  • 00:10:21.167 --> 00:10:22.001
  • If he can get -- that's the only way he can
  • 00:10:22.068 --> 00:10:23.969
  • That's the only way he can destroy the church,
  • 00:10:24.036 --> 00:10:25.171
  • Destroy the church, and destroy the city,
  • 00:10:25.237 --> 00:10:26.939
