1 Kings 21:1-16
Where the fear of God is absent from among the people of God, there you will find a breeding ground for every wicked sin. It may begin as a soggy marsh, but it will end in a sewer of running evil!! “Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD (to the false prophets who bolstered Israel in their sins), and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD” (Jer. 23:23-24).
This sermon is an exhortation for the Body Christ to return again to a healthy fear of God, not least in our treatment of others. The God who sees, will not hold those guiltless who destroy His people with their evil deeds—He shall exact their mangled bodies at their hands. May God have mercy in bringing a people to repentance.
