WHY CONDEMN YOURSELF TO DEATH?
And ye shall take no satisfaction for him that is fled to the city of his refuge, that he should come again to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest. – (Num 35:32).
There is no two way about it!!! Let us call a spade a spade!!! What is bad is bad!!! How can you argue that an object is white when everyone sees it as black? . . . That is a very high degree of hypocrisy!!! One should be mindful of you! In fact, you should be charged with treason!!!
We tend to give compromise and conform to certain situations in life, allowing the flesh to take control over our lives instead of allowing the spiritual milk of God to guide our thoughts, words and actions.
Constitutions, Laws, Ordinances, Doctrines, Rules, Regulations etc and whatever nomenclature that may be appended take root from Biblical laws and are put in place to keep everyone in check from straying from the accepted norms of behavior and moral ethics.
Anyone who behaves contrary is seen as someone who knows the law and has deliberately flouted it to prove his contempt. Such acts are treasonable and liable to charge.
TREASON is a crime that undermines the offender’s government or the authorities. – Why would you betray someone who endows you with so much trust? Someone under whose benevolence you are permitted the grace of existence.
There are laws, rules and regulations to which everyone is bound. Everyone has accepted that the laws were just and right and they have agreed to abide by them. You are a partaker of the grace as long as you have attested to abide by the laws.
Everyone with one voice agreed to obey the Lord – “And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do”. (Ex 19:8) Also in Jos 1:16 they said to Joshua – “All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.”
TREASON is disloyalty of the highest order by virtue of subversive behavior. The same people who promised God in Ex 19:8 and man in Joshua 1:16 are the same ones who disobeyed and did abominable things which caused four generations to perish in the wilderness without seeing the Promised Land.
Many question the authority of God as placed in the hands of His chosen Vessels by seeking solutions from other sources and getting involved in fetish practices and occultism or bowing down to so-called deities or gods.
Having gone to incur curses and placed themselves under bondage, they now run to the true God for deliverance. Such people are those described in Is 47:6 as those who have heavily laid the yoke of their bondage upon the ancient – aged – (the Elders, Prophets and Ministers of God).
The original can never be compared with the fake. The fake is of the devil which the Bible describes as the thief which cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: whereas the original which is of God confirms that “He is come that we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly.( Joh 10:10).
TREASON is an act of deliberate betrayal. A lot of people somewhere along the line tend to revolt against the laws most especially when they have erred or intend to do something which they know is not in conformity with the law. Instead of walking away quietly and relieving themselves of the benefits of obedience, they start negative evangelism which they never cared to do earlier. They start peddling rumors, heresy, backbiting, character-assassination, formulating stories and building an atmosphere of confusion, distrust, hatred and animosity. They murder peace, and sow the seed of discord and suspicion. People start accusing others of things which they know nothing about – in fact, it is the seed of destruction.
What do you think you stand to benefit if not for the same fate of condemnation? As you have dealt so cruelly, so also the laws of providence shall deal with you.
People by their actions or intended actions are liable to be brought down. Most often, they do not go down alone. They try to bring other unsuspecting believers down with them.
You can only be above their devices of lies and deception if you abide in the word and in prayers as well as being mindful of the things of the Holy Spirit.
We are but flesh and blood and are prone to err at certain times. To err is human but to forgive is divine.
Instead of acknowledging their faults, some people take pride in finding faults, excuses and apportioning blame. They find comfort within the zones of lies and implicating innocent souls. The Bible says “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. (Pr 3:5). You do not need to claim right when there is no right to claim.
2Ch 7:14 is explicit enough when it says – “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Because of your deeds, the land has become sick for which God earlier destroyed the earth. (Gen 7:23)
In Gen 8:21, we are made to understand that the repentant heart smells like a sweet savour which changes the heart of God and makes Him to repent of His intended wrath upon the offenders.
This clarion call therefore goes to every living creature to put away all wickedness, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking, become as newborn babies, longing for spiritual milk which is without guile that you may be worthy of salvation. (1Pet. 2:1-2)
Put away, the corrupt old man, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new man, whose thoughts are of God, abiding in righteousness, holiness and in truth. (Eph 4:22-24)
The text of our discussion speaks of excommunication which means to exclude or oust someone from a group or membership of a church or a religious community by decree or otherwise. This is in conformity with the Bible.
Some people are excused from continued membership because they no longer believe in the doctrines. The Bible tells us of such category of people “who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Rom 1:32)
If however they repent, the arms of love remain wide open to receive them. But while jubilating in their wrongdoing, some other persons put a stab in the back of the authorities by hypocritical acts of treason and betrayal, joining forces with the offender who is placed under excommunication laughing the living God to scorn.
Shall God not see or hear or know? (Ps. 94:9-10) I pity such people on the day of recompense.
God has called you into this marvelous light of His Son – Jesus Christ. Endeavour to abide in Him and He in you and you shall save your soul alive.
God has known you, He has made adequate plans for you regarding your existence upon planet earth. He called you into it to fulfill your destiny. He stands by you in all that you do so that you could be justified and, in doing His will, He has prepared a place of glory for you that you might be glorified. (Rom 8:29-30)
Would you throw all these away for worldly pleasures which are but momentary?
Do you feel yourself being pursued?
Does your inner spirit feel some guilt within?
Do you experience deteriorating standards in your livelihood?
Does your conscience report you to yourself?
These are a few of the effects of subversive behaviour.
You no longer live at peace with yourself.
At this point, you need Jesus in your life to experience total freedom.
