Honestly, if Christians know their purpose we will know that we don’t need any other unnecessary alliance than that of Christ to carry out our assignment. All we need is co-laborers.
“Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38 NKJV.
Alliance with Oprah, Steve Harvey or any other celebrities to get this collaboration is completely wasting of time and the little resources that God has given.
“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues. You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.” Matthew 10:16-20 NKJV.
Christians Are Sent to be Fellowshipping but Not to be in Alliance with Evil of any kind.
Fellowship And Alliance Are Not The Same. However, If You Stay In Any Fellowship For Long You May Become An Alliance. It depends on your priority.
Fellowship: Friendly association, especially with people who share one’s interests.
Alliance: merging of efforts, interest or assignment.
Christians have been in the world for so long, and we have become addicted to an alliance of all kinds of deceptions that is going on outside and within our Churches. And we are calling it GROWTH.
No! The unbelievers are only using our insensitivity to grow their businesses.
God’s mind for backsliding Christians is to repent and bring others back into repentance not Alliance with our policies.
If any Christian group are Fellowshipping With a Group of Fraudulent people there may be nothing wrong, it depends on their motives. And it may be another type of “go ye to the rich people evangelism.”
But if they choose to become an alliance with the fraudulent people, surely there is going to be a disaster. Beware!!!
Beware of Steaks, Barbecue Ribs, and Unnecessary Gifts.
“Jehoshaphat had riches and honor in abundance, and by marriage, he allied himself with Ahab. After some years he went down to visit Ahab in Samaria, and Ahab killed sheep and oxen in abundance for him and the people who were with him and persuaded him to go up with him to Ramoth Gilead. So Ahab king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat king of Judah, “Will you go with me against Ramoth Gilead?” And he answered him, “I am as you are, and my people as your people; we will be with you in the war.” Also, Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, “Please inquire for the word of the LORD today.” Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, four hundred men, and said to them, “Shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I refrain?” So they said, “Go up, for God will deliver it into the king’s hand.” But Jehoshaphat said, “ Is there not still a prophet of the LORD here, that we may inquire of Him?” II Chronicles 18:1-6 NKJV.
Regardless of our shortcomings, if we make amendments, God is still faithful.
“Then Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned safely to his house in Jerusalem. And Jehu the son of Hanani, the seer went out to meet him, and said to King Jehoshaphat, “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Therefore the wrath of the LORD is upon you. Nevertheless, good things are found in you, in that you have removed the wooden images from the land, and have prepared your heart to seek God.” II Chronicles 19:1-3 NKJV.
Very important, you must endeavor to enquirer from the LORD. Act according to the leading of the Holy Spirit not any devotional books before any alliance. And if there is any way you have missed it, Repentance and possible restitution according to the leading of the Holy Spirit is the key. Nothing Else.
ARE YOU READY TO REPENT?
