12 Weeks of Prayer Week 6 Day 4
MANY SHALL BETRAY ANOTHER
By Justin N. Citro
"And then shall many be offended,
and shall betray one another,
and shall hate one another."
It is Holy week, and Sunday is the Resurrection Day of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who rose from the dead to show the world that the Lord lives! However, before all of that, there was the betrayal of Christ; one of His own disciples Judas sold out Christ for thirty pieces of silver. Christ knew that Judas was going to sell Him out to the Romans. Betrayal is, unfortunately, permeates the church body even today with people not caring anymore about who they hurt or what they do. Problems like this exist in the church because of the carelessness of some pastors who are not willing to get their church back on track, headed in the correct direction. Their members do evil against one another after the Bible warns them in Proverbs 19:5 the dangers and the consequences of betrayal. The Bible says in Matthew 24:10 KJV, "And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another." This passage in the gospel of Matthew explains where the church is today for currently, people are getting offended for all kinds of ridiculous reasons, and for the Christians who easily get offended my message to you is this: Do you even read the Bible? Or meditate on His Word because if we don't, we will start to betray ourselves never mind other Christians. Beloved, we must rise and be wise for betraying a fellow believer is downright wrong. Ask yourself this question: Do you want to be known as a Judas? Do you know anyone who is named Judas? Brothers and Sisters, this is my encouragement to you: Be smart and wise in your actions towards other believers. It is better to tell the truth than to give false information that could hurt a fellow Christian. Dear Lord, I thank You for everything You have done. Lord, please watch over and protect Your Church from anyone who might try to betray it. Lord, heal those who have been hurt by a betrayal and mend their broken heart. In Jesus' Name Amen.
