What is a compromise?
It’s an act to accept standards that are lower than is desirable; It depends on which angle you believers in Christ may be looking at it from. However in Jesus Christ’s kingdom compromising is hazardous issue, and there are multiple records of compromises in the bible that actually led many generations into trouble.
For instance, let’s assumed that you’re a Christian, at the same time a president of a company, you’re so loyal to your boss, in short (LOYALTY IS YOUR SIGNATURE.)
However, your boss greedily and covetously involved in a shady deal that has tendency of destroy many people’s lives, and they come to you that the only way you can cover the track for your boss not to return what he or she has stolen or looted from the poor people otherwise go to jail, is for you, a supposed Christian president to become silent become a security chief officer in the same company.
What will you do as a Christian? Please, kindly remember the role of repentance and restitution in your judgment.
As a Christian, acting contrary to the evil bidding of your boss at any time if you have proof and God is leading you to do so is highly welcome and allowed in Christ kingdom. Believers in Christ should stop fallacies of “touch not my anointed.”
If I may ask you, why is it that at the end of every evil deal “the special anointed ones” don’t want to end up in jail?
Note this, someone may have an approval to send you to a prison that has four walls or imprisonment of their heart, that has not made you a criminal, it merely means that you’ve stepped on someone’s toes, and they’re proudly exercising their wicked authority over you, in any way that hasn’t change the truth that God is still the Almighty.
Believers in Christ, do not compromise, although the consequence may be hard to bear sometimes, but your reward will outweigh the consequences.
For example, King Ahab in 1 Kings 22:26-27.
And Herod in Luke chapter 3:1-20.
“But when John rebuked Herod, the tetrarch because of his marriage to Herodias, his brother’s wife, and all the other evil things he had done… Herod added this to them all: He locked John up in prison.
DO YOU THINK APOSTLE JOHN STEPPED OUTSIDE OF HIS CALLING THAT’S WHY HE WAS BEHEADED?
Before you answer that question, put the following in consideration,
“In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying: “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; Make His paths straight.’” Matthew 3:1-3.
As Christ-followers, our assignment in this dying age should be similar to that of Apostle John.
How? We are to be heralding the second coming of Christ, not to be “going fishing” and be taxing the children of God to comatose or death in other to be building Redemption camps, Shiloh camps, Canaanland, Mountain of fire, and many other religious business centers that have not redeemed souls of their pastors, neither burn away the covetousness in their heart, not to talk of the political robbers that have been in their various businesses way back before their ordination nor cultists that are living among them.
Many of their pastors are dying daily by keeping silent in the midst of all kinds of atrocities, simply because of poverty in the nation. And that is why many franchise parish pastors are accepting various evil bidding of their daddy g.o and fantastically corrupt politicians and entrepreneurs.
BELIEVERS IN CHRIST, IF YOU’VE MADE A DECISION TO BE STANDING IN THE GAP FOR CHRIST, DO NOT VIA TO ANY REDEMPTION CAMP OR SHILOH CAMP PALACE, AND YOU SHOULD NOT COMPROMISE, OTHERWISE YOU TOO WILL MISS THE NARROW ROAD.
1. Believers in Christ should not be afraid of speaking the truth.
2. Do not be frightened of consequences that may follow after you have spoken the truth.
3. Remain focused on God when it seems that you’re weary because of persecutions that may follow your conviction.
4. The moment you have done what God has called you to do relax and keep watching, the following will begin to happen in your life and ministry supernaturally. What is that?
The following scripture says, “Profound and reverent fear seized them all, and they began to recognize God and praise and give thanks, saying, A great prophet has appeared among us! And God has visited His people ! And this report concerning spread through the whole of Judea and all the country roundabout. And John’s disciples brought him word of all these things. And John summoned to him a certain two of his disciples and sent them to the Lord, saying, Are You He Who is to come, or shall we look for another? So the men came to Jesus and said, John the Baptist sent us to You to ask, Are You the One Who is to come, or shall we look for another? LUKE 7:16-20 AMP
5. Do not allow any situation you may be passing through to control your conviction and faith in Christ.
6. In conclusion, do not shift your focus to help from around because of your needs in a moment, focus on the supernatural support from above that can send you help you need from around.
