How to become an overcomer and not a divider!
 
How do you overcome division? Jesus was always wanting to get rid of division that causes hostility brick by brick. Letís not sacrifice peace of unity and wisdom of Gods plan for any way of Satanís? Bitterness will divide Gods best from Satanís ugliness. God wants to create within us a spirit of holiness and purity. Ephesians 2:13-18 13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
It is so natural to build walls of division and hostility, but in the spirit, God allows us to be of goodwill and peace so we are united with wanting to become more like the Lord, so we resist the desire to have our way.  We need to be united with the Lord, so the things of this earth grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace. 
The last 18 month has been trying to all especially Christians dealing with Coronavirus around the world, as it has caused a tremendous amount of fear to rule and reign, just because of the consequences of death. Shall I get vaccinated or not, shall I wear a mask or not? So how are we going to agree is the question? Jesus death on the cross bring us together in unity, greater is God within us, than he that is in this world. Is that a true statement? What is different about Jesus followers than the rest of the world? Letís look at how God taught us to deal with problems in Matthew 5: 1-48 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. We all have a conscience for we are born poor and need salvation. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. We all need compassion (love) for we are sinners and need to mourn because of our sins Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. A meek person needs to realize the need to be consecrated; dedicated to the Lord this shows growth.  Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. This is showing the bread and water is needed to signify growth. 7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. This is being transformed into Gods image a sign of growth maturity in the Lord Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Thatís having the ability to forgive and not get bitter, but better. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. This is taking on the spirit of the Lords. Father forgive them they do not know what they are doing.  Itís a mark of controlling oneís anger. 10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Remember the Lord said, we would be persecuted for His sake and we are seeing it today like never before, but God is blessing them.11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Thank the Lord, the closer we get to His return, the more intense Satan becomes, for he know his time is limited and he wants to deceive the very elect, those called and ordained for the ministry.12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. 13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Lord help us to see we have a taste that makes the word even better as it adds flavor. When we communicate with Gods love, should it not make us better and more Christ like. Never bitter like Satans hate of God and His followers.  14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Thank the Lord for light and the darker our day the less light is needed, but light dispels darkness. It is the Church today that is bring hope to the fear of coronavirus. 

 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Thank the Lord we have people that are still lawful and want peace from all among the lawlessness around the world. The Church is very strong where the persecution is the greatest, for man canít prevent God Spirit from fulfilling our lives to over flowing.18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Gods ways are certainly not our ways, for we want to take care of the injustices now and the Lord seems to be letting Satan have his way in the news out lets and on the internet. We are seeing It is not the Government, or the economy, or Religion that is our source of power, but God who gives the empowerment we need to become more and more like Him.19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Look at the amount of pastors and preachers, who are not preaching the word and what it is doing to the Church? Division is real and God wants us to be united, not in Doctrine, but in purpose for existing. God Created us for goodwill and peace and that is good works! 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. The Scribes most noted teachers of the law but did not practice it and Pharisees those that arrived at the highest pitch of religion yet they to where enemies of the Cross thinking that they were as gods and looked down may times on others. God does not want us as Christians to feel like we are better than anyone else, for we are all sinner in need of mercy and grace. 21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.  Yes killing is sin and so is losing your anger, for you do not care about what you say, or who you say it to. We are living in an angry world, as people are having a hard time trusting one another to day, as the truth has become a lie and a lie is now the truth to many who are not abiding in the vine; Jesus.  Woke being alert to injustices in society, especially racism, we need to stay angry, and stay woke. Is every one racist? No! but thatís what Satan wants us to believe, that the reason for lawlessness to day. God love- Satan hates all God loves! Satan loves abortion because God created men and women to multiply and Satan hates marriage. Look at the amount of people in WDC just yesterday in support of Roe verses Wade, which the US Supreme Court is going to review soon. 23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.  This is impossible without the Holy Spirit of God, for we want to get even and hurt them in return. Lord help us to see the need of forgiveness, regardless of the crime against us. You are a gift God gave to our world and we need to keep it reserved for God and His glory. Our world is caught up with no ability to forgive and it is shown now by the lawlessness around the world. We are called to be over comers not dividers.  To be continued
