Have you debugged? On which line does the error occur?

First you need to get and use a Javascipt debugger. I use Firebug for Firefox - it's free. With that you can tell which line of code is causing your problem at run time.

Once you've done that, then either the problem will be obvious so you can fix it, or you'll have enough information so that we can help you.

Simple. One of the objects you are referencing in your javascript does not exist (ie. It is null) when you are attempting to access a function under it. Take the advice above, install a javascript debugger and then figure out which object doesn't exist. If you don't know how to install a debugger, or you can't install a debugger, just add a temporary alert before you use each object.
ie. Before you have the divMessage.ClientID call, put in an if block and alert...
if( !divMessage || !divMessage.ClientID ) alert( "divMessage is null or divMessage.ClientID is null");

Wow, now that seems to me more than he could possibly have hoped for after leaving that code.

Good advice! +5
