I don’t believe this is only for ‘pastors’, or whatever they call themselves. There may also be judgement pronounced over our own households. For the last five years, even though I believe and know the truth as given by God our Father, and His Beloved Son, Christ Jesus, yet, I’ve known the hand of judgement over this household.
Mike has brought attention to something which happened to a powerful king. He ended up losing his reason for seven years, and was given grass to eat to sustain him.
It’s frightening, as sometimes, my prayers have involved this king and what happened to him. If judgement is pronounced, it never gets better, it gets worse, unless, or until the Lord has mercy.
If you lose your reason, folks, you no longer have the mind of Christ. He’s promised all who belong to Him three important things: Power; love and a sound mind, or self-control. Self control speaks of restraint. Restraint over evil. Another person we live with may be full of evil. It looks as if, even as believers, we have to pay some of the price of judgement over that. I know I do.
If you can – get your household in order while people still have their reason. Get the word of God into your family members before its too late. Like I said: once you lose your reason, you cannot have the mind of Christ.
Take that warning seriously, for your own soul’s sake, and for your family’s sake. Most of all, for the Lord’s sake, and His favour over you.

The deepest, widest blind spot that most professing Christians have is that they are convinced their religion pleases God. Pride disguises itself in many different ways. One that I have noticed in most professing Christians is a form of self-righteousness that sees their religion as making them so well-pleasing to God that anyone who is not part of their denomination or church could not possibly be right with God. Pragmatism springs from a desire by spiritually blind Christian…
