How Can Believers In Christ Be Coping With Ridicule And Persecution That Are Emanating In The Course Of Their Assignment?
The first and the most important thing in Christ’s Kingdom assignment is not to pay too much attention to threats coming to you, especially from their own so-called people or, let me say, families. Why? Because someone in the Christ kingdom assignment should not worry about threats from any quarter, they should always be bold and courageous in placing each threat where they belong as they surface, then move on.
ON THE ROAD TO BELIEVERS IN CHRIST’S KINGDOM DESTINATION, THEY DON’T NEED TO BE AFRAID OF ANY RELIGIOUS LEADERS’ MYTHS, FALLACIES, SHENANIGANS, CURSES, OR DISTRACTIONS.
Believers in Christ also need to know who they are in Christ; for example, David, who became a king, was anointed specifically for king Saul’s replacement; there is no controversy about that in David’s mind and Prophet Samuel’s mind. However, while David was waiting for his appointed time to come for him to be free from multiple threats that were coming from King Saul’s end, a severe challenge that threatened not only the existence of King Saul but the entire Israelites showed up. Uncircumcised Philistine.
WAIT FOR YOUR APPOINTED TIME, BUT DON’T STOP MOVING WHILE YOU WAIT.
An Appointed time came in for or, let’s say that it crawled in on David subtly; it came in disguise and with a massive challenge, and what David had been trained and prepared for was how to be confronting the challenges of being a shepherd. David recognized that the reward of every challenge for someone that God’s countenance is upon is always great, and it’s by simply promotion, not death.
David looked and saw the challenge that the Israelites faced as once in a lifetime opportunity and privilege to honor God; then he grabbed it by the horns, undoubtedly, David knew it was a great privilege and opportunity for him to witness and serve what was needed to the uncircumcised philistine that is oppressing entire Israel; while an ex anointed King Saul and his warrior ran way for the things that were supposed to be running from or for him and the entire Israelite.
For that reason, David submitted himself willingly to God’s mission to save the Israelites from an enemy’s dangerous takeover of their territory; his assignment was immediately born from that moment, and David decided to step into what he had been commissioned for when the opportunity came. However, there was a challenge from “family”; his siblings were not taken it lightly with him, especially when his elder brother Eliab ridiculed him. How? Please take your time and find out in the following scripture.
“Now Eliab, his oldest brother, heard when he spoke to the men; and Eliab’s anger burned against David, and he said, “Why have you come down? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your insolence and the wickedness of your heart, for you have come down in order to see the battle.” 1 Samuel 17:28.
”WHAT?” That was precisely what I said, but guess what? Because of the heavenly anointing upon David, he knew precisely what he was doing, therefore he gave his elder brother, Eliab, a befitting answer that he would not forget in a hurry and if not quickly get over it, it could have made him commit suicide. How? ”But David said, “What have I done now? Was it not just a question?” 1 Samuel 17:29.
God’s anointed messengers don’t need any debate with any specially anointed Daddy g.o, Bishop, CAN, or PFN, Associations to silence distractions of any war experts or anyone claiming they are God over your lives and properties.
