Joshua 7:1 KJV
But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against the children of Israel.
Ever heard of the adage ‘one bad nut spoils the whole broth?’ Well, that was the story of Achan.
Just after Israel’s famous triumph at Jericho, the lost woefully to a relatively smaller n weaker group of pple.
You can compare that to a local football team like Abusua Dwarfs thumping FC Barcelona just after they had won the 6 trophies in that particular season. Totally ridiculous!!
We become totally bereft of God’s power and are unable to engage in spiritual warfare when we keep returning to our filth and past life that He delivered us from.
Hebrews 6:4 paints an even scarier picture.
You may be enjoying God’s favour for sometime and might be at a peak of your relationship with Him but that doesn’t mean He would condone your sin.
Let’s be more circumspect in our walk with him.
Have a blessed Friday
