DON’T JOIN THEM-2
Luke 1:5 “There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.”
Luke 1:6 “And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.”
In the midst of the wickedness of Herod however, we have “a priest named Zacharias and his wife Elizabeth (a descendant of Aaron, who was a priest too).
I made mention of this because there were other elders and priest in Israel at that time who had teamed up with Herod! He was consulting them to reveal divine secrets and agenda in order for him to perpetrate his evil agenda.
Matthew 2:3 “When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled and all Jerusalem with him.”
Matthew 2:4 “And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together he demanded of them where Christ should be born”
Matthew 2:5 “And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,”
The Bible told us that Zacharias and Elizabeth, “…were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.”
In the days of Herod and the atrocities in the land, these folks remain upright before God. They refused to team up with the evil in their environment. They stood out from the evil crowd.
Zacharias and Elizabeth remained believers despite the temptations around them. Zachariah held on to the priesthood call. God could still attest to the fact that they were blameless.
It will interest you to know that the word Herod means amongst other things, “appearance”, “fashion”, “custom” or way of life.
Friend, I don’t care what is in vogue or the current way of life and style in your environment, what I’m particular about is how you’re living your own life.
