Scripture: 1 Samuel 2:22-25
In 1 Samuel 2:22-25, we are told, “Now Eli was very old; and he heard everything his sons did to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who assembled at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. So he said to them, ‘Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all the people. No, my sons! For it is not a good report that I hear. You make the LORD’s people transgress. If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the LORD, who will intercede for him?’ Nevertheless they did not heed the voice of their father, because the LORD desired to kill them.” When we look at Eli’s sons, we discover sin in the Priesthood that rises to the level of qualifying for termination. Eli’s sons used to take what they wanted financially and sexually. As a result, God terminated them. Is it possible that we are in such a season today that God is getting serious with the church and terminating leaders who refuse to live according to His standard, judgment begins first at the church, then moves to the world?
