Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel].2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
The king of Israel knew Jehovah’s laws and ordinances yet refused to obey them. He openly worshiped that which disgusted Jehovah. When he came to inquire of a man he knew was a prophet of Jehovah the prophet was disgusted with him and refused to even knowledge him.
So too it is to be with us who are of Christ’s family when we meet a wolf in sheep’s clothing that openly defies Christ’s commands and blatantly follows the wicked ones way of life. Even Jesus says that we are to abstain all contact with them.
This is because if we have contact with them they may influence us and draw us away from Christ.
The closer we get to Christ the more we become like Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah.
Another thing is that because we are close with Christ what disgusts Him disgusts us. So, just as these wolves in sheeps clothing disgust Christ so too do they disgust us.
Now if they repent they are to we welcomed back into the brotherhood and sisterhood of saints.
Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me to walk away from those who reject You and to be disgusted with their behaviour just as You are and to not even acknowledge them less they steer me away from You. I praise You in the name of He who was disgusted with the scribes and pharisee’s for their hypocrisy Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
