the rivers of Babylon, possibly a reference to the mighty Euphrates
River along the southwest border of modern-day Iraq. It may have been
possible to see the tops of the mountains of Israel to the southwest if
you were sitting along the banks of the River. What a hopeless and
pitiful situation for a people that were once free but are now captives
in a foreign land. A consequence of sin. Sad when a person gives in and
surrenders to their condition. Nothing left to do but to sit down and
weep. Elijah the Tishbite sat down under a Juniper tree and desired to
die because he received word that Jezebel wanted to kill him. Yet this
is the same man that called fire down from heaven and slaughtered 450
prophets of Baal. In 1 Kings chapter 13 there was a man of God from
Judah that was sent to prophesy against the altar that Jeroboam the
king had set up. He was warned of God not to eat bread or drink water
there or to go back the same way he came. Yet as he was leaving he sat
down under a tree and fell asleep. An old prophet on a donkey was able
to catch up with him and bring the man of God back to his house. Read
the story and find out what happened to him. Job was a righteous man
but the devil set out to destroy him by taking all that he had and then
attacked his flesh. Job sat down in ashes covered with sackcloth
scraping the sores on his body with a piece of pottery. Jonah also sat
down under a tree, angry that God had not destroyed Nineveh. You know
there's a lot of people sitting down. People God has called to be the
head and not the tail. Sitting and weeping. "Oh God, why don't I feel
your presence like I used to"? "Why why why"? "What about all the
promises you made me"? "Boo hoo hoo". Shut up and get it together
brethren. That kind of weeping comes from unbelief and a lack of faith.
Snap out of it! It's ok to weep for the lost. You know how misery loves
company. Many are in despair due to conditions that they created.
Shacking up with and then marrying unbelievers, improper handling of
funds, poor credit, deep in debt, (what do you expect if you don't
tithe?) the house all tore up, children off the hook, need I go on? Somebody stop me!
God didn't get you into that mess. He can get you out of it but you
have to learn to manage your life properly. Its all in the instruction
manual. Not only do we sit and weep but we start to remember how things
used to be, adding insult to injury. Let's go back to the Word:
we make matter worse by giving evidence that what we used to do we no
longer do. The Israelites hung their harps on the willows to show the
Babylonians that they were no longer going to use them to praise God. Don't get me started!
Like those old movies where the washed up boxer hangs his old boxing
gloves on a rusty nail and sits down on a dusty chair drinking beer and
getting fat. Some people like being a punching bag for the devil. Some
people are like doormats, they let people walk all over them. Just take
a little pig, and wash him white and clean but as soon as you let him
go he runs right into the mud and swims in it. Some people like to get
dirty. And then there are those that Brag about the stuff they do like
they are proud of it. This doesn't happen overnight. Just like the
brethren that are always in church then one day you don't see them, and
then you see them less and less until no one knows anything about them.
Just slack in your prayer life and read your bible less. Stop going to
church. Watch more television and listen to worldly music. You will be
dead meat in no time flat. It's just a matter of time.
We reap what we sow.
not God's fault if you mess up. The Word says that with the temptation
he will make a way for you to escape, but it's so much easier to play
with sin. God is a good God. Just repent when you go to church on
Sunday. Then play devil on Monday. Lord rebuke the devil. Keep playing with sin. Samson kept playing with it until he revealed the source of his strength. And look how he ended up
stop there? Since you no longer go to church the devil starts to make a
public display of you. Now your old buddies start looking for you. "Hey
aren't you the one that used to shout praise God Hallelujah"?"Didn't
you used to try to make us into Jesus freaks like you"? It won't be long before they start to tempt you. "How
about a beer, in fact why not have a cigarette"? "Those church folk had
you all messed up, this is where you belong...try some of this". Oh oh! "A little cocaine won't hurt you, you used to love the stuff"! "Sing us one of those nice songs you used to sing in the church". They are mocking you, making sport of you.
are you going to praise God in that awful condition? What a mess! C'mon
now...shake it off! As Paul was gathering sticks in Melita to put into
the fire a viper (poisonous snake) latched onto his hand, but he shook
it off into the fire. Shake it off some more! Get off the pity pot and
give the devil a taste of his own medicine. Stand up and stop crying,
you're embarrassing yourself. Stop shaking your money maker in the club
and dance for Jesus in the church. Stop babbling that drunken talk and
get filled with the Holy Ghost and speak tongues in the church and
prophesy. Shake the dust off the bible and get back into the Word. That
bible still looks new like you got it yesterday, a sign that it doesn't
get much use. Ouch! Ladies go through your closets
and toss out those hootchie mama clothes and start looking Holy. What
are you saving that stuff for anyhow? Men stop tryin' to be a gangsta
and put on your Sunday best, and shine them nice shoes and put on a
nice tie and represent. When you're not in church you look like a
hoodlum. God said be Holy as I am Holy. That's 24/7, 365 days a year!
We got no time to be playing footsy with the devil. Let's get it
together and turn this world upside down, and help bring the brethren
back into the unity of the faith. Its a matter of life and death. God
bless you and shalom!
