Isa. 30:10, “Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto the right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits.” This is what some congregation desire from their pastors. I will never prophesy deceit! The Church altar is not supposed to be a political platform where people are told what they want to hear or a place where they will be entertained and at the end of the day they all go to hell. I will never be a partaker of the judgment that is meant for the unrighteous. You must never tolerate evil. Evil does not have any tribe. It does not have any colour, evil is a universal phenomenon.

Isa. 30:18-20, “And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee. And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers.” God is not only a God of love, he is also a God of judgment. God expects you to judge unrighteousness in your environment otherwise, you will not succeed.

When a pastor preaches the truth, some members of the flock will start murmuring and eventually come to the conclusion that the pastor is ‘too judgmental’. You don’t know me until you know my God. Ministry is not what a lot of people think it is; ministry is warfare. When the battle has matured and you fail to realize that there is warfare raging, you may be consumed.

A leader who tolerates evil will not finish well. Likewise, a pastor who does not condemn evil will not end well. What led to the fall of Saul? God gave an instruction, but Saul wanted to be politically correct. May you not be politically correct and spiritually wrong in the name of Jesus.

Pray –

  • Lord, make it impossible for me to be politically correct and spiritually wrong. May I always be spiritually correct in all my dealings in Jesus’ name.

Whenever God is visiting, ensure that you open your heart so that he can answer you; even when God corrects you, know that he is doing so out of love. When he judges that unrighteousness, know that he is doing it out of love. Why am I strict when I am teaching my children? It is because I don’t want them to learn the wrong thing from someone who does not love them. It pays to do so.
