Slain in the House

By | Eyesalve

But Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of the hundreds, the officers of the host, and said unto them, Have her forth without the ranges: and him that followeth her kill with the sword. For the priest had said, Let her not be slain in the house of the LORD.” II Kings 11:15


I suppose Jehoiada did not want Athaliah, who took it upon herself to be king, to be killed in the house of the Lord because it is a place of life for mankind, not a place of death. I wonder how many of our churches today have become more of a place of death for people instead of life. We need the Spirit to be in our churches if life is to be offered, otherwise people are just being “slain in the house of God.”

Our Place and Nation

If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.” John 11:48


We have far too many ministers and Christians who are afraid to speak up for morality in this nation. We must be grateful for those who the Lord has raised up to be a prophetic voice to this nation. We need prophets like John the Baptist, who will speak to those in authority and tell them what they are doing isn’t right before God. Let me go in the other direction by asking you, are you more of a patriot than you are a Christian? Does your Christianity hinge on the continual existence of America maintaining her constitutional rights? If it would come to it that some other power would come and “take away both our place and our nation,” would you still maintain your walk with the Lord? I want to remind you all, we believers belong to a different kingdom. There is no other like it. It is the kingdom of God. That is the kingdom we must promote.

May Be a Different Place

And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:” Genesis 46:3


God clearly told Jacob (Israel) to go down to Egypt. Four hundred and some years later God rebuked Israel for wanting to go back to Egypt. Where God led you years ago may not be where He wants you to be today. Where God may lead you today may not be the place he wants you to be at tomorrow.
