Topic: THE SONS OF BELIAL
1 Samuel 2:12-36KJV
12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.
14 And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.
16 And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.
17 Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the
LORD: for men abhorred the offering of the LORD.
Last week, we considered the daughters of Jezebel, but today we want to learn about the sons of Belial.
In the scriptures the sons of Belial were considered as men who were immoral, lawless, worthless, rebellious and denied the existence of God.
From our text above, the two sons of Eli were sons of Belial, they forcefully slept with women who came to the temple to offer sacrifice, they diverted and thwarted people’s sacrifice meant for God to themselves in the name that they were sons of the priest. A very important lesson to learn from the sons of priest Eli beings sons of Belial is that, it means sons of Belial could be present in the church of God, they could be among members, even workers, they could be minister’s or pastor’s children and to shock you they could even be among the church ministers.
So dearly beloved sisters and ladies, don’t be deceived by title of brothers or men in the church in your relationship with them. The fact that he is your Pastor’s son is not a guarantee that he is God’s will for your life or that he would make a good and godly husband for you. Also the fact that he is a young vibrant minister is not a yardstick for you to surrender to his marriage proposal.
Many young ladies have fallen victims of the sons of Belial in the church most especially because of title, position and charisma of such young men in the house of God. Beloved, marriage is a life journey which God instituted and God does not want divorce, therefore it is important to allow God in your choice of marital partner and don’t allow emotions, title, position, wealth, education or career status and charisma of that man to deceive. I tell you the truth, spending the rest of your life with him is far beyond those qualifications that meet the eyes.
As I conclude today, sons of Belial is not limited to unmarried men alone, even married men in the church who are members, workers, or even ministers could be carriers of the spirit of Belial. Please beware of them and be mindful of your kind of relationship with them as ladies or women. God bless you.
* Father, I will not be victim of the the sons of Belial in Jesus Name.
* Pray, that your daughters, sisters and wife will not be their prey in Jesus Name.
