And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:4
The LORD has revealed HIMSELF as a great DIVIDER, first of all by making a difference (or division) between the light and the darkness.
HE divided the waters of the Red Sea. “He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as a heap.” (Psa 78:13; see Ex.14:21)
HE divided the promised land among the children of Israel . “And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance according to the number of names.” (Num 26:52-53)
HE divided the five loaves and two fishes. (see Mark 6:41-44) “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Phil 4:19)
HE came to cause division among men. “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division.” (Luke 12:51) CHRIST is a line of demarcation. “Know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (James 4:4)
HE will divide the sheep from the goats. “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” (Mat 25:31-34)
