DRIVEN BY ETERNAL PURPOSE: John 3:15
Theme: THE DEADLY HABITS FROM THE PIT OF HELL Part 24.
Beloved Saints, good morning. Still looking at the 8th deadly habit from the pit of hell; NOT REBELLION.
When is Rebellion not Rebellion?
This question shall never be an excuse to cause anyone to rebel. Rebellion is deadly and satan has destroyed many people out of this trap. When pride entered satan he was cast down from heaven and fell like lightning. He instils rebellion to make people fall like him.
Luke 10:18 (KJV)
And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
However, there is what we call good actions that God judges you right as follows.
1. When a leader doesn’t follow the Lord God.
God is the First Prime Universal Ruler. A delegated leader on earth must follow God always. When a leader rebels against God, those actions must not to be followed. You are free.
2. When the leader demands that you do something against God.
You are free to say no. Because you will not hide behind the leader on judgement day. Say no to sin. Sin is sin and avoid serving evil.
3. When the Leader breaks the relationship with God
You are then free not to relate with him or her. Korah broke relationship with God and all those who followed him died with him.
Elijah could not take evil orders from King Ahab but that which was only right. Elijah however could not kill the King by fire but only refused to bow down to Baal. It was not rebellion.
David had to run away from King Saul to save his life but when God gave him two opportunities to kill the King he said, “No, he is the anointed of God.” God Himself judges His own leaders. No rebellion. When Saul died David cried like nobody’s business! No rebellion.
4. When the king kills daily his own people like animals, arrests them without trial, eating his own people like meat as Abacha or Idi Amin did.
People can rise up and ask the Leader to step down. Like what has happened in Sudan few days ago. One nation people rose up fasted three days and cried to God for change and the leader died on the third day after breaking the fast.
5. When God gives you a different work and mission to do on earth.
You wait for God’s timing. God speaks directly to you. Then you inform your leader. He prays and God confirms. He calls and anoints you and sends you freely with love and blessing. But you crash if you lie and blessed if true.
I believe you have now understood clearly how to live best with all kinds of leadership.
Pray: Lord my Almighty Father, teach me wisdom to follow a leader without rejecting you. To obey a leader as I obey you, to love you as I love your leader. May I treat your people with your love as a leader. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
May God bless your day as you live above all these evil heart habits while seeking and saving the lost souls in love.
Always Love and Prayers,
Archbishop Dr Mark Kambalazaza.
