WATCH OUT FOR THE ELIABS-3
1 Samuel 17:28 “And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab’s anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither?”
In 1Kings 13 the old prophet under the influence of this spirit pitched the young prophet against God, made him flaunt the instructions of God and eventually lured him to his death.
Beloved, you must recognize the Eliabs fast. Sometimes their advice looks as if they care so much about you, in fact it seems they cared more about you than themselves. The old prophet did same to the young prophet. Eliabs always act with a mindset of envy don’t be fooled.
Eliab was quick to scold David but the truth is that he was actually threatened by the boldness and audacity of the young man. Note that, the coward will always call the bold proud and arrogant.
Friend, don’t be afraid to announce your dreams and visions, it energizes you and strengthens your resolve. Don’t let the coward drag you down to his or her level.
Recognizing Eliab is not difficult. They have a pattern, hear this:
1 Samuel 17:28 “And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab’s anger was kindled against David…”
The reaction of a man towards you after you announce your dream and vision will betray their innermost feelings. Eliab’s anger was kindled when David announced his dream. Joseph’s brothers became angry when he announced his dream. It happened to Jesus as well:
Luke 4:29 “And rose up and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built that they might cast him down headlong”
Luke 4:30 “But he passing through the midst of them went his way”
Jesus announced his dream (Luke 4:18) and they got angry and tried to kill him. Eliab will always react negatively to a dream but he can’t stop you. All their reactions will end in futility in Jesus name.
