God is not mocked

The word of God does not fail; it is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7)

The word of God does not fail; it is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

I remember the story of Gideon’s son, Abimelech. He used a convincing, but malicious speech so that his brothers would help him reign over the people, and then he killed them.

“Then Abimelech the son of Jerubbaal went to Shechem, to his mother’s brothers, and spoke with them and with all the family of the house of his mother’s father, saying, “Please speak in the hearing of all the men of Shechem: ‘Which is better for you, that all seventy of the sons of Jerubbaal reign over you, or that one reign over you?’ Remember that I am your own flesh and bone.” And his mother’s brothers spoke all these words concerning him in the hearing of all the men of Shechem; and their heart was inclined to follow Abimelech, for they said, “He is our brother.” (Judges 9:1-3)

This is the same convincing and malicious speech used by rebellious protestors, who no longer accept the discipline of the church of the Lord Jesus because they want to reign. So they say: “The church has changed; I don’t agree with this or that.”

Unfortunately, some people – “brothers”, fellow countrymen, and even disciples of these rebels – defend them saying: “He helped me when I came to the church, this is an injustice; he does not deserve to be treated like this,” etc. However, they don’t know what the rebels’ real purpose is, and why they have reached that point.

If Abimelech’s brothers knew his real intention – that he would kill them – they certainly would not have helped him.

Abimelech became king as he wished. However, we cannot forget that as he sowed evil, he also reaped evil.

“So Abimelech came as far as the tower and fought against it; and he drew near the door of the tower to burn it with fire. But a certain woman dropped an upper millstone on Abimelech’s head and crushed his skull.” (Judges 9:52-53)

We are not prophesying evil or trying to terrify people, but we want to warn you that “God is not mocked.”

“And Jotham ran away and fled; and he went to Beer and dwelt there, for fear of Abimelech his brother.” (Judges 9:21)

One of Abimelech’s brothers, Jotham, managed to escape and save himself. You can be like that brother who ran for his life. You still have the opportunity to escape from this plot, for the sake of the salvation of your soul.

Take this opportunity that God is giving you here and now and repent!

May the Holy Spirit convince you.
