Divorce and division

Posted by appolus on July 16, 2019

At some point after you were born, did you have to fill out membership forms to join your family? Were you not a member of your family the moment you were conceived? Was there not great joy in your family the day that you were born? The day that you were born again was there not great joy in heaven?

Are you a member of that heavenly family due to signed paperwork or rather are you a member of that heavenly family due to you being born again? In your family as you grew up did you all believe the same thing? Did you form yourselves into groups according to your opinions? Did you turn on one another based on disagreements? How did that work out?

Did you parents divorce due to irreconcilable differences? How did that effect the family? Did it help? Do you know many of your friends whose parents are divorced due to irreconcilable differences? When did divorce become a legitimate way to resolve our problems? Where was God in the midst of all that? Does God like divorce? Is divorce His solution to problems?

Of course, in all of this I am talking about The Church using the tragic analogy of our modern culture of divorce. If we are truly born again we are one Body in Christ, not some ecumenical or utopian dream, but one as He and the Father are one. We are one in Him. This was His plan.

We were not to be unequally yoked but rather equally bound together in Christ our Lord so that the world may know that He was sent by His Father. And the glory which was given to Christ, He has given to us. Father forgive us for not walking according to your Word. Forgive us for being more sold out to the systems of men rather than to the Word of God.

You instructed us not to be unequally yoked yet in order to maintain a system devised by man we ignore that, somehow believing that by defying the Word of God we are fulfilling the will of God. What blindness has overtaken us Lord and we wonder why we have fallen into a ditch. Open the eyes of our hearts Lord, we want to see you, high and lifted up, where the Glory is, the very glory that you have given unto us.

    Brother Frank…….The biggest plague to come upon the body of Christ is denominations, or as you so correctly put it, divorce within the body of our LORD. The power of the church in the book of Acts came from the simple fact that they were in “One mind, and one accord”. In other words they were one body. Shortly thereafter, they began splitting into denominations, or as you so wonderfully put it, “divorcing”, and what we have ended up with today is a lukewarm Laodicean abomination that has lost the power, and are trying every gimmick in the book trying to get the LORD to “send te power”. You hit a home run with this message brother Frank.

  3. The words of Jesus are echoing in my heart: “What God has joined together, let not man separate.” That is no less true of the Body of Christ than it is of marriage! How we have desecrated God’s reconciling work and glorious testimony among us with our shameless divisions! May God bring us to deep collective repentance! Thanks for your words, bro. Frank!
