GUILT BY ASSOCIATION
*WISDOM FOR TODAY*
*".....GUILT BY ASSOCIATION.*
Ephesians 5:5-7 ► *For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.*
*Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.*
*Be not ye therefore partakers with them.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
People who have knowledge of evil but conceal them will suffer the same judgment from God.
Just as in some countries' law, knowledge of a crime, like treason, is sufficient evidence of a treasonable felony. Such person who knew but concealed it may be pinned down as a participant or/and an accessory after the fact of the crime.
An active participant and one who did not directly participate but who concealed the crime may find himself facing the same severe judgment just like the active participant of the crime.
The same the Apostle Paul is admonishing us saying, if you are privy to a sin but kept it to yourself, you have partaken in the sins, so you must share in the punishments too. Refuse all partnership and association with people of unfruitful works of darkness!
Many people have lost their lives, not because they committed any evil, but because they walked and fellowshipped with people of unfruitful works of darkness.
They associated with them, instead of rebuking them or make them known, they kept secrets together and became partners in crime.
They became guilty by association.
Ephesians 5:11--► *And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.*
*Call to Word action.*
Psalm 50:18 says *When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him,...."*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Know what you can do so that you know what you should not do.
Know what you cannot do, so that you know what you should do.
Lord, help me. Let me not fellowship with the unfruitful work of darkness.
Help me to expose them. Do not let me be partakers of their sins, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
