The politics in church isn’t new. It’s as old as sin. Many a times some believers are quick to blame the ministers rather than truly examine their own spiritual state. Who are these believers? The “rich” ones. They think they are kings but are lepers.
King Ahab had for himself 400 men who prophesied only good for him. He wasn’t interested in the truth. He wanted everything to go his way, and gave room only for such “prophets”.
Micaiah was a true prophet of God, and would speak only God’s word. He was hated by Ahab because God would only speak trouble for Ahab. Why? Because Ahab had gone rogue.
When we get comfortable we choose ways that have nothing to do with God. We’d rather fulfil our own selfish desires. We see many believers today who prefer ministers who preach only prosperity and good, not the truth.
Stop going against the truth of God’s word
The New Testament ministry reveals the sufferings borne by saints for the glory of God. Yet, most saints today are choosing a comfortable earthly life rather than surrender to the truth in God’s word.
For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.2 CORINTHIANS 13:8
This world was created by the truth, Jesus. Nothing was made without Him.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.JOHN 1:3
Does it make any sense for mankind, specially believers, to think they can get away with manipulating or forcing God’s people? Truth will never settle for a false narrative. There is no lie of the truth (1 John 2:21). The Father of lies is the devil, and there is no truth in him (John 8:44).
Let’s choose Christ daily, the time is at hand. Repent and desire God’s perfect will in prayer so we may be found at His appearing. Maranatha, Praise God and Amen!
