The word church – “translated” in our English bibles from the Greek word ekklēsía (Latin, ecclēsia) – has for many centuries been used by the vast majority of both religious and non-religious people alike to describe a building or meeting place for Christians. Even with the increase of revelation and knowledge with regard to the concept of church, and despite the progress many of us have made in understanding this vital concept, the term church is still largely perceived as:

Clash Of The Prophets
We are fast approaching a season where this new prophetic divergence will cause a much greater distinction or separation between the two camps (those who are truly prophetic and those who are false), culminating in greater conflict, confrontation and contention among the prophets.

The word divergence simply means that there is a distinct separation, departure or moving away from a set course, convention or norm. It is normally characterized by a difference of opinion that ultimately results in the newer opinion deviating from the common path established by the old. Of course, any deviation from that which is conventional or common inevitably leads some (if not most) to believe that this new “opinion” or path is in error.
