Text message out of order

When someone sends a long text, it is broken up into different "bubbles" in the message app.  After the latest update to my S7, those bubbles are coming in out of order.

Example:  They texted me "So here is line 1 of their text but line 2 actually shows up first and then they make a 3rd line which comes in after this 4th line" and I see on my phone:


but line 2 actually shows up first

So here is line 1 of their text

which comes in after this 4th line

and then they make a 3rd line


Is this a setting or a bug??
