“The Evil Alliance”
Lord, help me control my tongue; help me be careful about what I say. Take away my desire to do evil or to join others in doing wrong. Don’t let me eat tasty food with those who do evil. Psalms 141:3-4
It is AMAZING how Satan works in the lives of those who are weak and spiritually anemic. He is able to get his foot into the door of their heart, and blinds them to the WORK and WILL of God. He entices them with appetizing morsels to feed their selfish, self-centered, egotistical souls. In a lot of cases he appears as the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Deceiving even those who are believers, and if they are not VERY CAREFUL, he will make them a part of his EVIL ALLIANCE to DESTROY the WORK of God’s Spirit within their own families, churches and nation.
This Psalm of David is a prayer, asking God to let him NOT SIN. He says, “Lord, help me control my tongue; help me be careful about what I say.” More of the leaders in our government needs to be praying this. Their rhetoric has caused a DIVISION in our Nation, which is a DANGER to the HEALTH of our beloved land. This is the work of Satan to try to DESTROY a GODLY NATION. Even in our families, words are spoken that HURT, and DESTROY the ones we love. And in the Churches, there are people who PROFESS to be TRUE BELIEVERS, and some may be, but there are some who PROFESS it, but they don’t really POSSESS it. Satan is not picky, if he has the opportunity to use a TRUE BELIEVER, who is weak in their relationship with God, he will, because it is a BIG feather in his cap to be able to use one of God’s own to DESTROY the UNITY of God’s family. Then there are those who he places in the churches to STIR-UP dissention, which by the way is the one thing that GOD REALLY HATES. Are you dancing with the devil?
You are, if you are joining others in doing wrong? “Lord, take away my desire to do evil, or to JOIN those others in doing WRONG.” David’s desire is to do what God says, regardless of who is enticing you. Satan can and will use those, who you least expect. He is the GREAT DECEIVER.
“Don’t let me eat tasty food with those who do evil.” In other words, DON’T FELLOWSHIP with those who are doing WRONG, and are scheming to cause DISSENTION within the Family of God. If you do fellowship with them then YOU are putting yourself at a HUGE RISK of being a part of the EVIL ALLIANCE, and you will answer to God.
If you are a TRUE BELIEVER, and you have been, or are NOW a part of the EVIL ALLIANCE, you have a way to escape, by SEPARATING yourself from those who are doing WRONG, and CONFESSING it to God, then FOLLOW the GODLY LEADERSHIP that God provides. God will chastise those who TRULY belong to Him, for their involvement in the EVIL ALLIANCE.
If you are an UNBELIEVER and are stirring up trouble in your family, the Church, or even your Nation, by your WORDS and ACTIONS, then you will stand before the Judgment Seat of God, the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, and you will give an account of ALL your SINS, and will receive your sentence of an ETERNITY in HELL, the place of UNENDING torment, torture, pain, agony, heartache and despair. However, God is giving you the opportunity NOW to TURN AWAY from your sins, and to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus DIED for you, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and cut ties with the EVIL ALLIANCE, and as David did PRAY that GOD will help you to not SIN against Him and His Family. Do it NOW while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
