Teaching Rebellion Against God

Key Verse

“Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD” (Jeremiah 28:16).

Text — Jeremiah 28:10-17


Charles Spurgeon said, “I heard the story of a man, a blasphemer, profane, an atheist, who was converted singularly by a sinful action of his.  He had written on a piece of paper, “God is nowhere,” and ordered his child to read it, for he would make him an atheist too.  The child spelled it, “God is n-o-w h-e-r-e-God is now here.” It was a truth instead of a lie, and the arrow pierced the man’s own heart.”

The first rebels were Satan and his fallen angels. They were cast out of heaven and were all doomed. No one has ever trodden the path of rebellion against the Almighty God and made away with it. Pharaoh perished in the Red Sea. Nebuchadnezzar’s heart was changed and he ate grass like an animal in the bush. Benhadad, Sennacherib, Ahab, Haman, Herod, Korah and his cohorts perished in rebellion but God remains the same. He is still on the throne ruling and reigning. To rebel against God is grievous; to teach others rebellion is gruesome. Stop fighting the battle you cannot win – yield!


Stop fighting the battle you cannot win


Never instigate anyone against God and His word.

Prayer for today

Lord, help me never to overtly or covertly support rebellion.
