    DCLM Daily Manna June 28, 2017 by Pastor Kumuyi – REWARD OF FALSE PROPHECY

    DCLM Daily Manna

    TOPIC: REWARD OF FALSE PROPHECY



    KEY VERSE:-JEREMIAH 28:10-17
    "Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD" (Jeremiah 28:16).

    Even though afflictions come from the devil, God, sometimes, allows them as a form of chastisement against His people for their wrongdoing. This was exactly the situation of the Israelites, as the text depicted, when they involved themselves in sin. Jeremiah, by the Spirit of the Lord, wore a yoke, which symbolised the Jews and other neighbouring nations’ subjection to the king of Babylon.

     It was not that Nebuchadnezzar was righteous, but submission to him was a form of punishment, which could prevent the extreme evil that would otherwise befall them. Hananiah, a false prophet, who stood against Jeremiah’s prophecy and made the people believe a lie, took the yoke from off Jeremiah’s neck and broke it. Jeremiah, as against contending with Hananiah, quietly and patiently went his way.

    But shortly after he left, God’s message came to him against Hananiah and the people. For the people, God had taken away the yokes of wood from them and put the yokes of iron upon their necks. So, they would serve Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. For Hananiah, he would die that year.

     In less than two months, Hananiah truly died. We should, therefore, be mindful of the fact that a lie is the breaking of God’s commands and its price is very high. If sin is allowed to go unchecked, it will have a crippling effect and it may ruin the person eternally because no one commits a sin and goes unpunished if he does not repent. It prevented Moses from reaching the Promised Land and Samson lost his eyesight and life, among others. Therefore, do everything possible to avoid sin.

    Thought for the day: False prophecy offers poisonous religious prescription.
