What is a compromise?
It’s an act to accept standards that are lower than is desirable; It depends on which angle you may be looking at it from, however in the kingdom of God compromising is a hazardous issue, and there are records of compromises in the bible that has led many generations into trouble.
For instance, let’s assumed that you’re a Christian, at the same time a president of a company and you’re so loyal to your boss, (LOYALTY IS YOUR SIGNATURE) However, your boss is greedily involved in a shady deal that has a tendency to destroy many people’s lives, they come to you that the only way you can cover the track for your boss not to return what he or she has looted from the poor people or go to jail is for you, a Christian president to become a security chief officer of 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 allowed, believers in Christ should stop their fallacy of “touch not my anointed.”
If I may ask, why is it that at the end of the day “the anointed ones” don’t want to end up in jail?
Someone may have the approval to send you to a prison that has four walls or the 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.
For example King Ahab 1 Kings 22:26-27.
And Herod in Luke chapter 3:1-20 NIV 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?
“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’re to be heralding the second coming of Christ. Not to “go ye” and be taxing the children of God to death in other to be building a Redemption, Shiloh camp, Canaanland, Mountain of fire, and many other religious business centers that have not redeemed the souls of their pastors, neither burn away the covetousness in their heart, not to talk of the political robbers that have been in the business way back before their ordination nor the cultist that are living among them. Many of their pastors are dying daily by keeping silent because of poverty, And that is why many franchise parish pastors are accepting the evil bidding of corrupt politicians and entrepreneurs.
IF YOU’VE MADE A DECISION TO STAND FOR CHRIST, DO NOT COMPROMISE
1. Believers in Christ, do not be afraid of speaking the truth.
2. Do not be frightened of the consequences that may follow after you have spoken the truth.
3. Remain focused on God when it seems that you’re wary because of persecution that follows your conviction.
4. After 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? “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.
6. In conclusion, do not shift your focus to the help from around because of your needs, focus on the support from above that can send you the help you need from around.
REMAIN BLESSED IN JESUS NAME. AMEN!
