Scripture: 1 Kings 18:7-10
It is interesting in this process when judgment unfolds, to watch the choices people make. Obadiah was met by Elijah and was told to convey a message to King Ahab. He instructed Obadiah to tell Ahab that he was ready to meet with him. Obadiah wanted no part of it. He wanted nothing to do with Elijah. It was amazing that once Elijah started moving in the judicial power of God a number of people were no longer his friends. Are we prepared to lose friends for the purpose of God’s call and for the purpose of participating in turning the nation back to God? Jesus addressed this issue of loss in Matthew 10. If we do not ‘hate’ mother and fathers and even our own life as well we are not worthy to be His disciple. Let us understand the price up front. Is this a costly anointing? We had better believe it is a costly anointing and it gets applied over and over again to our life. Don’t expect to have a whole lot of friends if we are going to walk in the judicial anointing of Christ. Did God call us to save a nation or to build a Facebook family of friends. What did He call us to do? Which do we want? Do we want to participate in saving a nation or do we want a Facebook family of friends? We more than likely cannot have both. Get over it now! Speaking truth is offensive especially to those intent on criminalizing Christianity!
