Topic: BROTHERLY BETRAYAL
Bible Reading: Psalms 41:9
📖9….”Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.”
🔥Except the rats at home inform the one’s outside, of the availability of food, the kitchen cannot be vandalized by external rats. Hence most of the challenges we encounter in life, originate from the insects that live right inside the vegetables. Achan who caused the defeat of Joshua by Ai, is an example. He was a Jew, yet worked against Israel. He was a chosen warrior to fight the people of Jericho, but he became the insect that destroys the vegetables, living inside the vegetables. No wonder Jesus said in Matt 10:36 that a man’s enemy shall be members of his own household. But since betrayers don’t get away with their evil deeds, Achan had to die in the valley of Achor…Joshua 7:24-26.
🔥🔥In Psalm 41:9, the psalmist vociferated about a friend who is more dangerous than an enemy. If there is anything to beware of, it is our household enemies. Because, your helper can be the destructive insect you are confiding in. Your confidant can become the leech draining your blood. In 2 Sam 15:31 and 16:23, Ahitophel turned against David, by making a deal with his master’s household enemy, Absalom. He later betrayed David, but he was disappointed and frustrated by God, and ended his life in suicide according to 2 Samuel 17:14, 23.
🔥🔥🔥Beloveth, the good news is that, Achan, the insect always dies before the vegetables. We might have been vegetables to some insects in our families, offices, business places, marriages, even in our academic environments, but they will all die before our eyes like Achan and Ahitophel. Our God, who is a man of war once He speaks through our prayers, will give them for a prey in our stead forever, in Jesus’ name.
🙏My Father, my helper, expose and destroy every secret friend and associate, jeopardizing my life and family in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, move whoever has made a deal with my enemies against me to commit suicide like Ahitophel and Judas, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, I command all the spiritual leeches, draining the blood of my progress, to be casted into the bed of afflictions in Jesus’ name.
