Divisions in the church of Jesus Christ weaken it. Every division in the church starts with individuals. This work by Brinsley is designed to expose what divisions are and where they come from so that the people of God would call on Christ to heal those divisions and repent of them. This is an exceptionally great work on the subject, and something not regularly preached on in the pulpit.

John Brinsley (1600-1665), the younger, was a Presbyterian puritan divine who was a powerful Reformed Gospel preacher and writer.
This is one of the most powerful biblically based series that you will ever read on healing the wounds that are afflicted on the Christian Church. Brinsley’s design in this series, which should be the desire of every true Israelite, is the healing of the breaches in Israel; healing for our Christian church. He works masterfully from Psalm 60:2, “Heal the breaches thereof, for it is shaken.” His primary aim is to demonstrate how every true Israelite should desire and seek after the healing, repairing, and making up of Israel’s breaches. Breaches are defined by Brinsley as heathenish persecutions, various divisions and spiritual distractions. Breaches come from without and they come from within. They come from God, and they come from Satan. And it is the Christian’s duty to pray that God, the great cure and only Physician, would come and heal the church’s breaches. Though God may bring or allow breaches to occur in the church, He does so for His glory and for the good of His people. He also does it to purge the dross away and to refine further the people of God.
This is an extra-ordinary work not commonly written about, or preached, in our day and age, and would be useful for every church and every believer looking for true, biblical reformation, encouragement and healing by the Great Physician Jesus Christ.
