My Spirit was Vexed

If you have found yourself troubled and a little angry at the blatant hypocrisy of religious leadership over those that consider themselves Evangelical Christians then you might have been in a state of spiritual vexation.

Over the past four years President Trump stood-out as a stark example of much of the behavior that goes against the grain of our Lord Jesus teachings and commandments. Even more troubling is he never has expressed any contrition about his conduct, and at times has even went as far as to mock the words of our Lord. With that said, as I have already intimated, it is not Trump that vexed my spirit but instead religious leaders that ignored the conduct, what God has said about such conduct and the instruction God has left us concerning conduct that could cause believers to stumble.

The leadership of Evangelical Christians preside over disciples that supported Trump and his conduct at 80% in 2016, and have been very consistent with those same numbers of support this very day, four years later.

Observing, over several months, that kind of consistent support by evangelicals really vexed my spirit, and I grew a little angry at the leadership of those flocks because I know they have intentionally failed to protect the people of God and chose worldliness over the word God.

With that said, by early Wednesday morning I was reminded that God is able despite the falling short of some of us and the iniquity of others. Today I'm reminded of what Galatians 6:7 tells us where it says: Be not deceived; God is not mocked. It has been a challenging, exhaustive and agonizing experience for me seeing the leadership of the evangelicals lead their sheep to slaughter, but I'm remined today of what Isaiah 40:31 tells us: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

My spirit is lifted and back where it should be as I type these key strokes. Saints if any of you are struggling as I was with the deliberate failure and deliberate misleading of church leaders pray about it and keep it moving. Don't let it steal your joy, disturb your peace or vex your spirit. God has already spoken about their responsibilities and he is not happy about their dereliction of duty.

Consider God's warning to religious leadership in Malachi 2:1-2:

2:1 And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.

2:2 If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the Lord of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.


Consider God's admonishment and justice for religious leaders in Malachi 2:8-9:

2:8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the Lord of hosts.

2:9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.


In closing, Our God is the same, he changes not (Hebrews 13:8).


May God bless and keep you all.

Grace unto you,

I agree totally! My spirit has also been vexed by the behavior of those of the five-fold ministry, especially those white evangelicals.
