Will God Fight for Plateau PDP?. There is too much noise by apologists and party faithful of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Plateau State chapter, saying God will fight and defend the sin of their party and the governorship candidate. But, will God do that?
God in his infinite mercy has not hidden or concealed from us his plans and purposes and what is pleasing and displeasing in his sight through his word.
God has proven over time to fight for the innocent and defend them as he did to Joseph whom Portipher’s wife lured into committing adultery, but refused and she set him up and jailed him. God brought him out and made him governor of Egypt.
Peter was incarcerated for preaching the good news, God sent his angel to redeem him from prison. Prophet Hanania told King Asa, “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him” 2 Chronicles 16:9.
It is the innocent and those whose heart is perfect before God that he fights for.
The PDP has disobeyed God, and instead of repenting and being humble, it plays holier than thou. It feels it is upright. Apostle Peter said,
“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well” 1Peter 2:13-14.
Has the PDP obeyed the ordinance of the court which told it to go back and re-conduct its Congress?
God is never a supporter of violators of law. Apostle Paul said, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3 For rulers are not terrors to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil” Romans 13:1-4. Has the PDP not resisted the ordinance of God by disobeying court order and the avenger has dispensed its judgment as spoken by the Scripture? Afterall the order was not for evil, so why did the PDP disobey?
The scripture says disobedience is witchcraft. Prophet Samuel told King Saul saying, “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” 1Samuel 15:23.
That’s the exact thing the PDP did. In fact, aside disobeying Court order, the PDP wages war against the government by casting aspersions on the judiciary. The party has worsen its situation by doing so before God, because Satan was the first to fight constituted authority in Heaven.
What prompted the quackery congress carried out by the party that led the aggrieved faction to seek redress in court? It was nothing but to defraud Gen. Jeremiah Useni group, and Apostle Paul said, “That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified,” 1 Thessalonians 4:6.
God said we should not defraud anyone and in any way, but the PDP did it and it’s paying the price.
God’s eyes are against the disobedient and stiff-necked. There is no amount of prayer that can move God to defend people’s wrongs. The Scripture says that his eyes are too pure to behold sin Habakkuk 1:13.
God wasn’t happy with the dishonour done to him by the PDP by disobeying constituted authority.
None of Christ’s disciples disobeyed any court order aside from the one prohibiting them to preach the good news. But the Court told the PDP to go and repeat and do an all-inclusive Congress, but because it hated justice, it disobeyed and now is claiming God will fight for it.
Which God? May be the god that approves successful rigging and claims sixteen is greater than nineteen. But if it is the living God, the Almighty, and the creator of the heavens and earth, He is telling them to repent and obey constituted authorities.
If God who spoke with Moses and gave him the ten commandments, did not cover his sin to allow him to enter the Promised Land and also did not cover for King David, the man He called a friend and a person after his heart, his adultery with Uriah’s wife, is it the PDP that is using Christ’s name in vain for politics, whom the patriarch said he approves rigging, that he will fight and defend its disobedience?
The PDP should beware: “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.” Exodus 20:7.
