Beware Of The Company You Keep by ACKCITY: 11:44am On Feb 05, 2017
The companies we keep can either help us through life to achieve success or can put us in serious troubles and danger and can set us back in life.

Places we go to and people we interact with can put us in serious problems both spiritually and physically.

Let me tell you a little story before I continue the subject of this message: In the Old Testament God used several prophets and ordinary people to carry out His work. Some of these people and prophets went through great ordeals to deliver the work of God.

For instance, Jeremiah was severally arrested by the people and sometimes thrown into well and jail because he was sent by God to deliver His judgment to the people of Israel. Attempt was made severally on His life but he obeyed God all through.

Ezekiel was tied down in his room for days because God did not want him to speak a word to anyone. There was also an instance where he ate excrete because God told him.

Hosea was made to marry a prostitute because God wanted to make Israel understand the curse of prostituting and idolatry. The man suffered the pains of marrying a famous prostitute and partakes in what he did not directly cause.

Many others went through ordeals just to serve God and deliver His judgment and message to the people.

Maybe this is why Jonah became afraid to do the work of God when he was sent by God to deliver His message to the people of Nineveh. In the Book of Jonah 1; God sent Jonah to the city of Nineveh, He said, “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are” Jonah 1:2 (NLT)

“But Jonah got up and went in the opposite direction to get away from the Lord. He went down to port of Joppa, where he found a ship leaving for Tarshish. He bought a ticket and went on board, hoping to escape from the Lord by sailing to Tarshish” Jonah 1:3 (NLT)

The same way we meet our friends we hadn’t seen in years, we don’t know if he is running away from the law. We don’t know if he had committed a crime somewhere and he is running away. We don’t know if he just killed a man and police is looking for him. That is why you need to be careful of the company you keep.
