Rebellion is a CONTAGIOUS Disease!

Jude 1:11 (NKJV) 11 Woe to them! For they have…perished in the rebellion of Korah.

(NLT) What sorrow awaits them!...And like Korah, they perish in their rebellion.

Rebellion-WW antilogia: : an-tee-log-ee'-ah - gainsaying, contradiction:--dispute (2), hostility (1), rebellion (1) –NASC; from <G473> (anti) and <G3004> (lego); to dispute, refuse :- answer again, contradict, deny, gainsay (-er), SPEAK AGAINST - Strong's

The Rebellion of Korah was DENIAL OF THE AUTHORITY of Moses as God's chosen spokesman, and intrusion into the priest's office (of Aaron). Scofield’s

Notice that, in most cases, rebellion does not happen in isolation.  It happens in community.  The rebels were looking for others to AGREE with them, to form a common BOND OF BITTERNESS.

Hebrews 12:15 (HCSB) 15 Make sure that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no root of bitterness springs up, causing trouble and by it, defiling many.

(MSG) …Keep a sharp eye out for weeds of bitter discontent. A thistle or two gone to seed can ruin a whole garden in no time.

(CEV) …Don't let anyone become bitter and cause trouble for the rest of you.

(NLT) …Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.

(AMP) Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another]…in order that no root of resentment (rancor, bitterness, or hatred) shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment, and the many BECOME CONTAMINATED and defiled by it

WHAT do you DO in that instance??? SEPARATE YOURSELF, lest you become bitter too!

BITTERNESS will eventually DEFILE many!  It is rooted in RESENTMENT and leads to REBELLION!

Jude 1:23 (NLT) 23 Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives.

Let’s DECONTAMINATE & not hook up with a spirit of REBELLION.  Because Rebellion is a CONTAGIOUS Disease!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Faith gives SUBSTANCE to the things we hope for (Hebrews 11:1).  That is BASED on the Word of God.

    Proverbs 13:12 tell us that: Hope that is deferred, that is prolonged or delayed, makes the HEART sick.  But when the dream is fulfilled it becomes a TREE of LIFE!

    Finally:

    Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the CONFESSION of our hope without wavering (seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it -AMP; hold tightly to the hope -CEV; We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith -GW; hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm -NLT), for He who promised is faithful.

    (MSG) Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.

    Keep CONFESSING the WORD, hold tightly the CONFESSION of your HOPE!

    Be blessed!
