NLT
    49 “I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning! 50 I have a terrible baptism of suffering ahead of me, and I am under a heavy burden until it is accomplished. 51 Do you think I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I have come to divide people against each other! 52 From now on families will be split apart, three in favor of me, and two against—or two in favor and three against.
    53 ‘Father will be divided against son
    and son against father;
    mother against daughter
    and daughter against mother;
    and mother-in-law against daughter-in-law
    and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.

    54 Then Jesus turned to the crowd and said, “When you see clouds beginning to form in the west, you say, ‘Here comes a shower.’ And you are right. 55 When the south wind blows, you say, ‘Today will be a scorcher.’ And it is. 56 You fools! You know how to interpret the weather signs of the earth and sky, but you don’t know how to interpret the present times.

    57 “Why can’t you decide for yourselves what is right? 58 When you are on the way to court with your accuser, try to settle the matter before you get there. Otherwise, your accuser may drag you before the judge, who will hand you over to an officer, who will throw you into prison. 59 And if that happens, you won’t be free again until you have paid the very last penny.

KJV

    49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

    50But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!

    51Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

    52For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
    53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 54And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.

    55And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

    56Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

    57Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

    58When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

    59I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.



i have been having troubles in this house for a very long time. i came across this passage, and found out why. God has opened my eyes and allowed me to see.
