Separatism is to set yourself apart from a group you should belong to, thereby weakening the group. Jesus is on a mission of building His church. The church saves and establishes people in the Kingdom of God. It is the Kingdom of heaven on earth to fulfil the purpose of God and the good news is we have been called to be co-labourers with Him
Matthew 16: 16- 18
As co-labourers with God we are expected to be faithful and not to separate ourselves from labouring with the saviour to build the church. What does it mean to be faithful? It means to be reliable, consistent, and unchanging.
1 Corinthians 3:9
An owner of a construction group is interested in the well- being of the workers in his construction business. In the same way the builder of the church who is God is interested in the life and well-being of the person who is involved in building His church. The quickest way to get the attention of God is to get involved in building His church. What do you do in the house of God?
As children of God we are to help in building the church of God and not to tear it apart with our words and behaviour. The strategy of the enemy is to use fifth columns to destroy. Fifth columns refer to enemies within. In the church, fifth columns will walk, talk and behave like real children of God but are not. They speak against the work of God, the pastor with the aim of discouraging others and destroying the church.
2 Corinthians 10: 5
Revelation 20: 7-8
Unfaithfulness and disloyalty does not happen overnight, it starts with a bad thought. We must know that the source of bad thoughts is devilish. Satan enters people and uses them to destroy the work of God. Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus because Satan entered him, Luke 22: 1-6. Do not allow the enemy to use you, as a fifth column, to destroy the work of God. Anytime you begin to have a bad feeling about a good place, know that the devil has come around.
DON’T AVAIL YOURSELF TO THE DEVIL TO USE YOU AS SEPARATOR.
