Read 1 Kings 13:1-32
Here is the insight relevant to this passage:
We are NOT to allow any preacher, church member or friend to cause us to doubt the truth of God’s Word once it has been revealed to us by God Himself (Galatians 1:8-9)
We are expected to have a relationship with God directly and not look around for somebody else to give us words on God’s behalf…. because they could all be LIES.
The physical death of the Man of God does not mean that he was eternally cast away…. it only means that he was taken out of this world for his disobedience….. all Christians should consider that as representatives of Christ in this world, if their actions are bringing dishonor to His Name then God may remove them out of this world for their own good, so that they do not continue to bring further condemnation on themselves (1 Corinthians 11:29-32, Revelation 2:20-23)
Finally, although the Man of God disobeyed and was punished with death…. the Word of God which he delivered was fulfilled…. 2 Kings 23:16-18
Prayer for Today:
Loving Heavenly Father, we do not want to disobey you, please grant that we will never find ourselves in this position….. for your love’s sake… and in Jesus name we pray.. Amen.
