There Are Consequences for Every Action!
By Geraldine Fisher
This morning I heard God say, “Run for your life!”
People the guns are out! The battle has just begun in the spirit!
The LORD spoke to me in this morning in such a dramatic way as I went in prayer.
The power of God was so heavy this morning, I
felt the anointing come in and sweep over my soul in such a mighty way, as I ministered before the LORD, singing in tongues!
All I can say is, if I had had two wings, I would have flown away!
I did not want to let
go of His Presence this morning!
God said to me in my spirit, that much is coming in this season!
There will be more deaths in this season and more souls will be either ready to meet Him, or are lost.
God is warning us to be ready for His return. This is no time for being lukewarm and doing things our own way, because there will be consequences for our actions!
As I prayed, the LORD took me over to the Book of Judges where
He showed me that there will come a time when He will bring the Sword of Division among the brotherhood (sisterhood) when we disobey Him.
It will be just as the LORD did the Benjaminite town (Gibeah) who raped the concubine who belonged
to the Levite Master!
You see, after she was violated and raped and left for dead on her master’s steps, the master turned around and cut her up into 12 pieces. And, as a way for justice, he sent her piece by piece —
twelve pieces! — to every part of Israel’s inheritance.
This was to inform them of this vile and outrageous crime that had been committed in Israel, and He said to the Israelites, “Make up your minds! Decide on some action!”
Well, the Israelites did. They took it up with God as to whether they should go up and fight against their brothers, the Benjaminites, and the LORD said, “Go up!”
You see, the LORD gave the Israelites
a strategy to defeat their enemies (their brethren) killing them with a great victory!
Many times we think, because we are apart of a tribe, (in the body of Christ) we are not responsible or accountable for how we treat others in the Kingdom
of God and that there is no CONSEQUENCES for our behaviors in the kingdom! Just as the town of GIBEAH thought!
Yes, the concubine was unfaithful to her husband, (a Levite) and she left him to return to her father’s house. We
also know the husband came to convince her to come home, but evidently it was too late for that!
Then an old man who was living in Gibeah, but who was not a Benjaminite, had certain perverse men of the city come to his house and demand
that his guest be given to them for sexual purposes.
The old man refused, offering instead his virgin daughter and the Levite’s concubine, but the men refused that offer. However, when the host and the Levite
put the concubine outside, they decided to settle for her and abused her all night long.
After, she then returned to the old man’s house to fall dead on the threshold at dawn, leaving her master devastated and angry at what the perverse
men had done!
But God revealed to me that the moral to this story is that we have to be ever so careful whom we allow into our space.
Had the concubine obeyed her husband (instead of going off playing the whore) and
not left her home, maybe she would have still been alive!
And had the Benjaminites surrendered the men right there and then, these hell-raisers of Gibeahm, they wouldn’t have suffered the consequences for what they had done at the
hands of Israel,
They would have been put to death and burnt for their the evil, but there would not have been a war.
But they wouldn’t do it. The Benjaminites refused to listen to their brothers, the People
All because there was no King to bring them into judgment, they forgot there was still a God in the heavens, who sits high and He looks low!
Instead, they raised an army from all their cities and rallied
at Gibeah to go to war against the People of Israel, (Judges 20:12-16). Which was a complete failure!
I believe in this season that God is calling for responsibility and accountability among the leaders; as well as
the people of God!
No more walking as if you have seniority in Christ, and you have a license to sin, just because you have a title or a position in the body of Christ!
God forbid we sin, and may grace abound!
But, Instead; the people did what was right in their own eyes!
