My first church had only twelve members, and in order to begin building the kingdom on earth as it is in heaven, I started with the first church split! “I called My twelve members together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.  And then split them up and sent them to preach the Kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.  And I said to them, I will provide for you so, take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.  And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where,” Luke 9:1-3,6.
From that moment on I began to shake things up! Even the government got nervous because of what this split was doing. Even Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by My church split: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some misinformed government leaders, that John was risen from the dead;  And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.  And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see Me,” Luke 9:7-9.
Many fearful western pastors are scared to death of a church split, because they have built empires that need great amounts of money to support. It was never in My Father’s plan to fill large expensive buildings once a week with thousands of spectators to watch a few performers. My body is not an audience, but a living organism of believers that have been commissioned to, “Go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  and Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded: and, I promise, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world,” Matthew 28:18-20.
Much to contrary opinion, most church splits are not caused by people wanting to do their own thing, but from people obeying My call to do My thing, after being held back to finance church corporations! When I compare thousands of orphans feeding off dumps to big church corporations sitting with fat bank accounts, while lulling thousands to sleep with a wrong grace and prosperity message, it’s an abomination.
“They think because they are rich, and increased with goods, that they have need of nothing; They do not know that they art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:  I AM counseling them to buy of Me kingdom gold tried in the fire, so they can be spiritually rich; and wear the white raiment of purity, so they can be clothed, and that the shame of their nakedness does not appear for all of heaven to see; they must anoint their eyes with eye-salve, so they can see their condition!
 If I didn’t love you, I would not rebuke and chasten you this way: be zealous therefore, and repent, empty your bank accounts, split up your church and send them out in hundreds of small groups, to shake up governments, like I did.
You really only have three choices:
- Become a government church by becoming politically correct.
- Let My Holy Spirit help you have a church split now, and shake your government.
- Let the government shake you by splitting up everything you own!
 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if you will hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in and show you how to have a kingdom church split and shake nations, while I eat with you, and you with Me,” Revelation 3:17-20. The choice is yours, it’s time for a church split!
