Matthew 10:34-39 records the words of Jesus: "Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn 'a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man's foes will be those of his own household.' He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And He who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it."
Christ isn't anti-family; however, He does oppose anything and anyone that takes precedence over Him.
"For you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God" (Ex. 34:14).
The Lord says, "Within this season, year and decade, I, the sovereign Lord, am unsheathing My sword. I shall commence to divide (to separate into two or more parts, areas or groups) for the purpose of identifying the authentic from the counterfeit, allies from adversaries (both foreign and domestic), guardians from perpetrators, law-abiding kingdom citizens from law breakers and gatekeepers from gate destroyers.
"I, the Lord, am employing the 'cutting weapon' with a vengeance. My intent is to expose (to leave without shelter or defense), uncover (make known to the public information that was previously known only to a few people or that was meant to be kept a secret), and unearth (to dig up; bring to light) all internal enemies of the Lord Jesus Christ's church. This unsheathing of the sword, this employing of the cutting weapon, will recalibrate and realign My body with the sovereign God's will established before the foundations of the world."
God says retribution (a dispensing of punishment) is coming at large to the church.
