2 Kings 7:2
Then the captain on whose hand the king leaned said to the man of God, “If the LORD himself should make windows in heaven, could this thing be?” But he said, “You shall see it with your own eyes, but you shall not eat of it.”
Showing reverence to the things of God is very crucial for everyone who confesses Christ.
It is sad how we handle the things of God sometimes, especially with ‘lose talk.’
In a time of crisis, the man of God, Elisha, had decreed that the famine was going to be over by the next day. However it was going to happen was not the problem of the king’s captain mentioned in the verse above (i.e. v2).
But he still opened his mouth to ridicule the prophesy. What happened to him afterwards is history.
The bible admonishes us not to despise prophesy. I know these days, with the proliferation of churches, it is not easy to trust just any man of God, but neither should we make the mistake of ‘rubbishing’ their prophesies rather too quickly.
He that has the Spirit of God judges all things… – 1 Cor 2:15. Lose talk may land us in trouble, even with God.
In Ps 131:1 David said he wouldn’t engage himself in ‘great matters’ that are ‘too high’ for him.
Let us take heed and learn, lest we incur God’s wrath for no reason.
Have a blessed day.
