“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household,” Matthew 24:34-36.
“Would you have Me return with peace or a sword?
I tell you that you will find Me coming back with a sword. For I will come back to divide asunder between everything that is against Me.
For everything that stands between you and Me will become a hindrance on that day.
Truly, He who is not for Me is against Me. For your foes could be even of your own household on that day.
But stand firm. Be resolute. For truly I have not come to bring peace.
Yes I was the Prince of Peace; I was the humble servant, and many threw palm branches at my feet, but now is a different time.
Now the world has become darker, and faith has diminished.
Now men have exchanged their faith in Me for self.
Many think that they can do all things by themselves. You have attempted to create your own gods. And so, I will leave you to your own devices.
But when you look upon the One whom you have pierced, you will then know the true tragedy and error of your ways.”
