Shall we tear down the idols of our fathers?

Posted by appolus on April 18, 2023

1Sa 3:1  And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation.

Can I put it to you that we live in days where the Word of the Lord is rare and there is no widespread revelation. And the reasons are very similar to the times of 1 Samuel. There was a corrupted priesthood. The world had invaded the priesthood and the world has invaded the modern day church. It was similar in the times of Gideon. We are told the Israelite’s did evil in the sight of the Lord and they were then oppressed by the Midianites. Gideon is confronted by the angel of the Lord and Gideon complains “where are all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.” Now, the Word of the Lord was rare means that God was not speaking though prophets. No prophecies, no words of wisdom, no discernment no miracles.

We live in such days. We have abandoned God’s ways for the ways of the world and the world has come flooding in. We have, for the most part, rejected the gifts of the Spirit and do not desire His manifestation in our midst. We outright reject 1 Cor as any kind of model for our gatherings and therefore remove the platform set up by the Lord by which He would speak to His people. He gets to decide how He speaks to His people, we don’t get to decide that. And therefore Ichabod is pronounced over us. In order to put this right in Gideon’s time, he was required to tear down the idols of his fathers. In the time of Eli the existing priesthood had to be torn down. What about our times? What should the Lord do? Should He wink at our disobedience. Only God knows how He will deal with us but for us it should begin with acknowledging there is a severe problem. Acknowledging that miracles are rare as are true prophecies. Then we should look to why and begin to turn it around. Will we tear downn the idols of our fathers? That remains to be seen.
