Scripture reading: Acts 20:28-29

Let us look today into Acts 20:28-29, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.” Praise God. Can you imagine Paul about to depart and saying that grievous wolves would come into the flock, tearing the flock? But somehow a flock that is well fed will not be caught by a wolf.

If you notice, the balance of nature is so ordained that when a lion comes to a flock to catch his prey, he generally will go after the weakest ones. He will either catch a weak one or he will catch an older one that is staggering at the back of the flock. So the prime of the flock is always saved because they have the strength to run and to get away. This same principle works in the spiritual realm: anybody that comes into your midst with a false teaching, he will try to get onto the women. I’m not saying that the women are weaker, but sometimes they get excited over things and spirits catch them.

I saw a man once come into a congregation. He preached on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Then Friday he dropped out a little bit of his reconciliation doctrine. But all the while, during the daytime, he was visiting with the women. He was getting them to believe in the love of God and the goodness of God. “God is so good that He wouldn’t be able to put you into hell.” He poisoned them to such a degree that eventually he broke the congregation right in two.

If those people were founded and well-grounded, they would not be able to be taken. Do you understand? They would not be able to be taken, because first of all, they would have known God. When you get to know God, you get to know what God would do from what God wouldn’t do. Do you see what I mean? It is the same God of love that poured fire down on Sodom and Gomorrah. God is not slack concerning His promises, or slack concerning order, or slack to allow sin to destroy a congregation when He can cut it short and deliver.

Thought for today: A flock that is well fed will not be caught by a wolf.
