REBELLION COMES WITH ITS CONSEQUENCES

Today’s Reading:

Psalm 74; Isaiah 5:24-30; Acts 7:44-53



Love in itself is all encompassing as the Bible described God as Love who keeps no grudge against His own. In Isaiah 1:18 God clearly told the believers to come and reason with Him. Though our sin be as red as scarlet, He will make us as white as snow but what more can He do for us when we become incessant with our sins and unwilling to give Him a chance to purge us of our infirmities. Much as His desire is for all to be saved and come to repentance and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Tim 2:4).


God can't force repentance or goodness on us and there definitely is a consequence for rebellion in whatever form it comes with. In Acts 7:51-53 ("And you continue, so bullheaded! Calluses on your hearts, flaps on your ears! Deliberately ignoring the Holy Spirit, you're just like your ancestors. Was there ever a prophet who didn't get the same treatment? Your ancestors killed anyone who dared talk about the coming of the Just One. And you've kept up the family tradition—traitors and murderers, all of you. You had God's Law handed to you by angels—gift-wrapped!—and you squandered it!"). Recompenses will surely be given for anything you do on earth both on earth and in heaven for our God does not forget to reward those that diligently seek him (HEB 11:6) and those that diligently rebelled against Him (Psalm 74).


Note that:

  • The wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus (Roman 6:23).

  • Rebellion looks pleasurable and it seems enjoyable and pleasing to our flesh but of what gain is it when we lose our soul in the end (Mark 8:36).

  • Sin will only act as weight that keeps weighing us down on earth for worldly desires doesn't profit much (Prove 11:28).

  • Rebellion is not consistent with the life of Christ and rebelling against God is unethical of the believers in Christ.


Believers should:

  • Always know that obedience will always be better than sacrifice as obedience is the very sure way to show that we believe in God.

  • Always know that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek and obey Him, His reward is sure to those who are consistent with Him.

  • Seek first the kingdom of God and everything else shall be added unto him.

  • Never be weary of God's instructions for they are meant to guide us to eternal life and our desired destinations in life.

Prayer:

  1. I speak to my spirit, mind, and body to listen and obey only when the Spirit of God speaks, in Jesus name.

  2. Rebellion is not a nature of God, so I come against the spirit of rebellion in my life and family, in Jesus name.

  3. I live the life of God as a believer, I overcome sin and it's power, in Jesus name.

  4. The church of God radiant God's glory, sin and rebellion are far from her, in Jesus name.

  5. We collectively as a Church speak out deceit, rebellion, and sin out of our country, Nigeria, we kick sin out, in Jesus name.
