TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 2: 12-1612 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord.
13 And the priest's custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand;
14 And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.
15 Also before they burnt the fat, the priest's servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.
16 And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.
Key Verse: Psalm 101:8 I . ‘will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD
To destroy wickedness is to do righteousness. To cast away darkness is to shine the light. To destroy all the wicked of the land is to administer justice. If we apply the key verse, we shall do judgment and reduce sinners and hypocrites in the church. If we do not allow people who have not complied with divine standard to serve, we will bring evil to minimum. To allow people who are wayward like Eli's children to preach and sing in our assemblies is to corrupt the altar of God. A little leaven certainly will leaven the whole lump. As the temple of God, our hearts and body should be kept pure from sin and evil. The church of God must get rid of evil workers. The psalmist purposed to do this without delay. The godly leader must not condone sin nor adapt himself to the life and character of wicked members and workers under them. You have accepted holiness, go and
make the church holy.
Do not say “I am not the general overseer”. Go and shine as light in that church. Do not sit down aimlessly saying, “My general overseer said I should not preach against earring.” Go and preach against it with great zeal and passion. Let him bring police to the stage and arrest you. Does your general overseer have heaven for you? The resolution of the king on justice and administration was fully seen in the ministry of Jesus. All His servants were righteous, except the son of perdition. Those who desire to serve God in all capacities must walk worthy of their calling. Are you a coordinator in HOREMOW? That is a high title in the sight of God but may not be in the sight of men. Walk worthy of that title. If judgment or discipline is not employed on the church of God, we shall not see good result. So, do not keep the work in the hands of unserious people. Maintain standard to ensure that during the rapture of the church, many shall be raptured through this ministry. Pray that the leaders will make David's kind of resolution to serve God in truth, righteousness and holiness. Only those that are perfect shall serve Him.
