There’s thousands of ministers that wear many hats. I believe that there are very few that the Lord allows to engage in these areas in addition to their primary call by the Lord into the ministry.
Then there are others that have no business engaging in other areas and make a big mess.
In the OT, many use Daniel as an example of a prophet of God and a leading administrator in Babylon.
One of the things we have to understand is that as long as a person never compromise their personal relationship with the Lord and their call to the ministry, it shouldn’t be a problem.
The whole point is, are you in the will of God, or do you want to do your will because it’s a nice thing to do? Are you about bolstering your reputation? Or do you want to walk in humility?
For instance, Daniel received the meaning of a dream from the Lord and the associate administrators plotted against Daniel to kill him.
Obviously, the source of this plot was demonic because the interpretation of the dream had end time implications for the entire world, including the end of satan. With Daniel being a prophet that heard from the Lord, he was a perceived to be a threat by satan.
Having made this point, you have to hear from God. There’s many impostors in the pulpit that use the house of worship to further their own goals, aspirations, fame, and reputation with monetary connections.
Since we’re proceeding with great speed towards the end of the end times, you have to be obedient to the Lord with your primary call to the ministry and never look to enter a door that will diminish your effectiveness to be impartial with the Word.
Once you give yourself to entering into activism, and politics, you must compromise or be shown the door. Because if you show up like Daniel, to be impartial and give the Word of God, in most places, you will no longer be welcomed.
Daniel remained impartial and it took him to the lion’s den. But because he remained faithful to the Lord, the Lord preserved his life.
There’s a lot of believers that sit in service with clear conflicts of agendas. Their activism’s and political affiliations are crosswise of the Scriptures. For instance, there’s many believers that believe in the right to choose abortion. They call it healthcare. The question is…..
What’s healthy about killing a baby?
The response to this is that they believe that a woman have a right to decide what’s to be done with her body. But it’s not her body that was killed. The baby’s body was violently extracted from the safety of the womb to “terminate the pregnancy.”
But the pregnancy occurred during the vile sins of fornication and or adultery.
Terminating a pregnancy is just a nice way to tell a lie to cover the truth. Then pro choice proponents pivot to rape and incest. Why punish the mother with carrying a child full term? Men will never understand carrying a child because of rape and incest. But should the child be killed? Is this fair to the child? Yes, without a doubt it’s unfair to you. This should never be minimized or marginalized. It’s not easy. There’s adoption agencies and other vital life saving programs where the life of that child could be spared.
According to the CDC, 98% of abortions are done because the pregnancy was “inconvenient.” But the immoral sex was convenient? 1.7% of abortions is because of incest and 0.03% of abortions is due to a threat to the mother’s life.
So with knowing these stats, how can a person justify 98% of abortions due to inconvenience? There’s no justification. And to compromise as a “right to life” to allow abortion up to a certain trimester is a compromise on every level.
Regarding incest, the right to choose’s argument is why punish the mother with a pregnancy? False argument. The rape or incest is wicked, but equally wicked is terminating the life of the baby. What was the crime that the baby did that the child deserve to be slaughtered? Rape, incest, and murder of a baby are all wicked.
So you can’t be found compromising the Word of God in agreement with the wickedness of the world.
Regarding homosexuality. They will demand that you suspend the stand on the Bible regarding the vile sin of homosexuality. Many preachers have compromised not to share the truth but when standing with politicians, they want your presence as endorsement. Our presence with politicians is considered as endorsement of their anti Biblical positions. For you to voice your Biblical opposition is a no brainer.
You must tell them up front that you have the right to voice your position on abortion, homosexuality ( or any sexual sin for that matter), and socialists agendas that is anti Biblical. Not only do you have the right, but you voice your opposition for all to see. So that there’s no question to the world as to where you Biblically stand.
Stand for the Lord and the Lord will stand for, and with you.
When the world is against you, God, Who made the world, will stand with you.
There’s honorable activism regarding the social aspects of life, like feeding, clothing, and housing the poor, helping the homeless and the elderly. There’s plenty of non compromising programs to ensure people are assisted.
However, the limits of socialism must be expressed. Government intervention that involves the restriction or ripping away a person’s freedom has always been the goal. The government provides a service at the expense of taxpayers and you return the favor by voting them back into office so you could continue getting the service they provide.
There should be no strings attached. So be careful when you tie yourself to politics that demand a compromise on basic fundamental rights.
You see, these the things (abortion, homosexuality, anti Biblical socialism), are at the top of the list when it comes to activism and politics. To agree with these two things at the expense of the call of God on your life isn’t worth it.
You see, we all must face the Lord when we close our eyes for the final time. Will the Lord, Who called us, be pleased or will He reprimand us?
It’s up to you.
Do you want the applause of men, or the praise of God?
