THE SPIRITUAL PROBLEM OF REBELLION

Jesus Did It!

By: Neil Anderson

Rebellion is as the sin of divination (witchcraft), and insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry - Samuel 15:23

If you fail to bring your child under control during his early years, problems may not show up until he hits the age of identity, around 12.  Most parents respond at this time by trying to control the child.  But the authoritarian parent is most likely to produce a rebel.  "But we have to reprove rebellious kids, don't we?" Actually, the Bible tells us not to reprove a scoffer (Proverbs 9:7-9).  Why?  Because rebellion is a spiritual problem, and it requires a spiritual solution.

Saul, the first king of Israel, rebelled against God by doing his own things, making his own rules, and worshiping the way he wanted to.  God sent a prophet to confront him. Part of the prophet's stinging rebuke was, "Rebellion is as the sin of divination [witchcraft], and insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry" (1 Samuel 15:23).  As a result of Saul's disobedience, "an evil spirit from the LORD terrorized him" (1 Samuel 16:14).

God can use any means He chooses to discipline His children.  Even Satan and his evil spirits can be an instrument in the hands of God (1 Corinthins 5:5).  I'm not suggetsing that you turn your child over to Satan.  But willful disobedience usually cannot be dealt with by human reasoning.  Have you ever tried to reason with a rebellious child?  Prayer is our weapon for bringing down strongholds raised up against the authority of God, and those under it, which parents and spouses are.  (See: 2 Corinthins 10:3-5)

A Special Message:  http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
