AVOIDING THE COMPANY OF THE REBELLIOUS
By DIGC27 October 2020
Avoid the company of the rebellious in order to safeguard your destiny.
SCRIPTURE: And with Absalom went two hundred men out of Jerusalem, that were called; and they went in their simplicity, and they knew not anything. 2 Samuel 15:11.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Avoid the company of the rebellious in order to safeguard your destiny.
One young man who submits to me in ministry left some time ago, and came back after about seven years in a terrible condition. He told me: “I am sorry sir. I got connected to people who had no respect for spiritual fatherhood. They came around me. And I have not seen progress since then. I am very sorry sir. How I wish I never drifted away, I would have gone farther in life and ministry than where I am now”.
Beloved, the truth is: if satan wants to destroy a man’s destiny, he will send a rebellious friend his way.
There is a company of people who followed Absalom out of simplicity and perished. In 2 Samuel 15:11, the Bible says, “And with Absalom went two hundred men out of Jerusalem, that were called; and they went in their simplicity, and they knew not anything.”
The men were about two hundred. They followed Absalom in their simplicity not minding the fact that he was fighting his father, and all of them died. Absalom called them to fight with him but none of them asked, “Who are we fighting? Why are we fighting? What are we fighting for?”
Beloved, take note of the following counsels: First, don’t allow anyone to call you into rebellion and kill you. Second, don’t let anyone invite you to curse or speak against a man of God. Third, do not let anyone invite you to criticise the work of God.
So, avoid the company of the rebellious in order to safeguard your destiny.
Remember this: Avoid the company of the rebellious in order to safeguard your destiny.
- Dissociate from the company of the rebellious.
- Refuse to be influenced by rebellious people.
- Make up your mind to remain under authority.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive Your grace not to be influenced by the company of the rebellious, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Every person needs a pastor, and even pastors must have pastors. There are pastors who do not have pastors over them and their lives are full of calamities, stagnation and frustration. I see some people I know, who have no spiritual father anywhere, and their lives are full of disaster. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT: Great white sharks can detect a drop of blood in 25 gallons (100 litres) of water and can even sense tiny amounts of blood from 3 miles (5 km) away. They use their acute sense of smell to detect blood using an organ called the ‘olfactory bulb’.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Lord completely deliver you from every wrong company that is out to ruin your life in Jesus’ Name.
