Topic: UNRECOGNIZED DISQUALIFICATION IN THE FAITH
Text: 1 Corinthians 15:9
📖9….”For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.”
🔥The first believer to pay irreversible price for persecuting Jesus Christ was Judas Iscariot. He sold Jesus Christ with a kiss for 30 pieces of silver. He did that for the love of money, which is the root of all evil…1 Tim 6:10. This shows that whatever anyone does as a believer, against another believer, to increase his money, which compromises the Christian tenets of faith, is persecution. Whoever does this, is spiritually disqualified from being a member of the Church of Christ (John 3:18); even though he is still in the Church…17:16; except he turns from such evil ways.
🔥🔥If Paul could refer to himself in 1 Cor 15:9 as someone who is not qualified to be called an apostle because he persecuted the Church before his repentance, what do we say today about pastors and believers who take pleasure in humiliating upcoming pastors, by buying their rented places of worship? Is that not internal persecution? Paul persecuted the Church before he repented. What do we say of Christians oppressing other Christians with their positions in the society, is that not persecution? Are those doing such, still qualified to be called Christians and pastors?
🔥🔥🔥I often wonder how ethical it is in the faith for two Christian denominations to share the same building, or a common fence! Don’t you think the second denomination to enter that building, or share that common fence is persecuting the first one; thereby persecuting the body of Christ? These are the little foxes that are destroying the Lord’s vineyard, and giving a stronghold to the state and non Christian bodies to oppress the Church. Because the Church doesn’t seem united as one to them. Beloved in the faith, let us stop direct and indirect persecutions so we won’t be disqualified by God unknowingly.
🙏Thou God of war, make whoever is selling the Church anywhere in the world to Satan, to reap the fate of Judas Iscariot in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, disgrace and disqualify by your wrath, every internal persecutor of the Church in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Heavenly Father, deliver our Church from the power of persecutors, and give us the victory that the early Church had over persecutors in Jesus’ name.
