The Word.

Written by Peter Ngumbau

The word of the Lord came to King Saul through Samuel the prophet of the Lord. The Lord’s assignment to Saul being simple and clear, Attack Amalek and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, OX and sheep, camel and donkey. 1 Samuel 15:3.

The Lord intended to punish the Amalekites for ambushing the Israelites on their way to Canaan when they were coming from slavery in Egypt.

King Saul destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword. But contrary to the word of the Lord, Saul and his army spared Agag the King of the Amalekites and the best of the sheep, the oxen, the fatlings, the lambs, and all that was good and were unwilling to utterly destroy them. 1 Samuel 15:9

This disobedience of the word of the Lord greatly angered God to the extend of regretting why He made Saul King. Saul’s stubbornness and attempts to justify his actions against the word of the Lord to Samuel did not help things either, he ended up being rejected as King by God.

Today, despite the spread of the gospel to almost every corner of the globe, the world is acting in ignorance and utter disregard of the gospel of Christ. Everyone is vocal in justifying their evil actions. This is evident by the spirited clamor for the LGBTQ+ rights-the wisdom of Sodom and Gomorrah-and much more evils of this world that people have willfully chosen over the Word.

 No matter how much the worldly justify their sinful deeds, the Bible clearly states that the soul that sins shall die (Ezekiel 18:20) and the wages of sin is death. Romans 6:3. The wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it Is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness.” 1 Corinthians 3:19. No natter how many ways you device to justify your sins, God will hold you accountable for it all and reject you for your rebellion and stubbornness towards His word.

The word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the understanding of those who have understanding I will confound.”

For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God.
