The Church of Christ, as an affluential body in our society, has a noble/honourable role to play in the governance of the society.
And their part must not be to oppose the Administrative leadership set-up of the society, but to passionately assist the leadership in prayers of faith, selflessly and compassionately, and above all, to deliver sermons that are seasoned with love for all.
Peter would have rejected the hosting of Cornelius, but for the clear vision he had, he received him.
Acts 10:19-20 “While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them”
Mordecai and the rest of the Jews in their toughest moment of oppression by authority did not disown one of their own in the corridor of power, but rather they backed her up with prayer and fasting, and they were free from oppression.
Esther 4:16-17 “Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
“So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.”
Pastors, don’t be carried away by emotion. Listen carefully to God, And do His bidden! This ongoing elections have revealed the Spiritual weaknesses of our Church leaders, why? Because of sentiment, religious dogmatism, and hate for non-Christians.
Most of the prophecies given by these men and women were faulted by the reality on the ground.
One of the most blessed Christian leaders even said that if a certain political party is returned to power, it will amount to madness to the majority who voted that party!
Now the party won the local and state government of where his mega church is situated, even his hometown and state were not left out.
Does it mean that everyone around him except himself is mad?
