Human Christian power has infiltrated itself into the body of Christian believers, watering down the necessity for true obedience to God, and proposing human panaceas and human authority, rather than God’s authority to rule. This has created groups of believers operating on the theory that they have the authority of God and therefore God must go along with their requests and proposals. “Who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him?” ( 1 Cor. 2:16; top )
However, a closer search of Scripture reveals that God’s true leaders refused to accept anything less than God’s absolute, perfect will, because anything less proved to be disastrous and even death to some of the prophets. The idols that many prophets had were in their own hearts, and these idols promoted many to disobey God by using human leadings; which prompted God to force these to bear their own iniquities and to be punished by losing their Godly status – and even their lives.
In this hour, we have failed to expose our Christian brethren to the difference between the holy and the profane. As a result, the two have tried to function together, and God will not stand for it. We have erroneously thought, “No evil shall come upon us.” However, God says, “Shall not My soul be avenged on such a nation as this…” ( Jer. 5:9; top ) God has to be true to His character of holiness and judgment.
We have walked after the vanity of human desires because the fear of God is not in us; and we run after those things that do not profit, nor please God. In the time of our troubles God will say, “Where are your gods of human desires? Go to them to save yourselves.”
Are we comparable to those of Jeremiah’s day, whom the Lord accused of saying, “We are Lords, (as a result) we will come no more unto You.” ( Jer. 2:31; top )
God is God, “And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; He does according to His will in the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth. No one can restrain His hand or say to Him, ‘What have you done?’” ( Dan. 4:35; top ); and those that walk in human pride He is able to abase.
Will God be forced to bring us to our knees through judgment to get our attention? “When He slew them, then they sought Him; and they returned and sought diligently for God.” ( Psa. 78:34; top )
“For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been His counselor?” ( Rom. 11:34; top )
