Topic: DO NOT BECOME THE GEHAZI OF YOUR GENERATION.
Bible Reading: 2Kings 5:1-19
The terrible and costly tragedy that everyone that read this message should avoid to happen in his or her life. One of the greatest mistake you can make in life is to see your master or leader as foolish. Gehazi is servant under prophet Elisha, but he (Gehazi) did not follow the path of his master – Elisha.
Elisha was MAN of integrity whom was faithful and lives holy life. He never allow selfishness to controlled him. But Gehazi is not like that.
WHO IS GEHAZI?
Gehazi was a curate under prophet Elisha. Elisha taught him the way of God, holiness, righteousness, and faithfulness. Gehazi have close relationship with Elisha. Even Elisha allowed him to used his staff, and never his truth from this man called Gehazi.
Gehazi is a man that allow selfish to destroyed him without remedy.
He pursue earthly materials and perished with leprosy. He ran after materials gain and he lost eternal life.
Gehazi lived unfaithful life throughout his lifetime. He was a man with vision of greediness.
Gehazi regarded his master as foolish. 2 Kings 5:20. When his master rejected the gifts of Naaman, Gehazi run and claimed the gifts and see his master as foolish.
Many people in the world today are Gehazi of their generation. Many so- called preachers in the world today are Gehazi of this present generation. Preaching just to exhaust the people money and possessions. Many are fraudulent and following the way of Gehazi. It is true we can see them like man of God because of the miracles and wonders they claims to performed, meanwhile, they were servant of Satan. Everything they are doing is deceit and magic.
Remember, Jesus said, they will perform miracles and wonders, but they were not His followers. Because their work are evil and iniquities.
” Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].” Matthew 7:22-23
Are you not among them? Act like man of God, but secretly you are man of the devil? Are you not among the people that see Christians as foolish? Think of it now!
Many did not have regard for God, that is why they refuse and denial to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
When others run away from idolatry, fornication, adultery, drinking, stealing, fraud, corruption, bribe, kidnapping, murdering, smoking, etc. They pursue them, embrace sins and dwelling in iniquities. They see Christians as foolish who do not know enjoyment.
Beloved, what you regard as enjoyments and merriments are dangerous and destroyers. Devil are using them to deceive and cage people for internal doom.
Do not see sinning as fun. John 10:10a. Sin is evil and it only manifest to ruin and destroy. 1John 3:8, 2:22.
Therefore, do not allow selfishness, foolishness, and greediness to ruin and bury you into eternal doom.
God is Almighty God, He loves you that is why He sent Jesus to died for your sins. He do not want you to lived forever in hell fire that is why He asked you to repent and turn back to Jesus for salvation. Today is your day of salvation, return to Jesus, repent your sins, and confess them.
Gehazi refused to repent his evil deed and he end up his life in everlasting leprosy. Do not become a Gehazi of your generation. Be wise!
