ELI CLUB

1 Samuel 3:14"Therefore I have sworn to the house of Eli that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be atoned for by sacrifice or offering forever."

 

Circulate this message far and wide!

 

When they hear Steve Job was a ruthless, relentless taskmaster which spiraled him to the world’s highest position and the  gigantic success of Apple, people ‘ah and woo’ about it, but when the Church Pastor questions the people about coming late to church, then he is branded as tactless, rude and tough person – why may I ask? Is church is in anyway less significant than business?  When I questioned a church member for persistently coming late to church, he argued, screamed, rolled his eyes at me and eventually vanished.   Church leaders are expected to dance to the tune of people; however, today we have a warning that God would kill the leaders like the way he killed priest Eli, if they fail to run the show according to the specifications laid out by God.

The house of Eli was in shambles, the House of the Lord was also in ruins because both were under the leadership of a man who failed to do his duty – he is priest Eli.  Both the sons of Eli, were wicked men, stooping so slow as to misbehave with the women who came to church – horrendous! Well, we see such ‘Eli club’ generation a lot today, I have seen varieties of churches in my experience and I write this piece with a lot of burden.  You may mock and scoff at me, but I write the truth, in one particular occasion, the man who counted the offering in a home-church had actually been to jail and had not transformed yet.  Eli club.  People promptly pay their electricity bill, water tax bill and house maintenance bill but care a damn about paying their offerings to God and partake in the work of God – Eli club generation.

God expects His people to pray before and after church so that the Word sowed will not be stolen by the devil; instead today church leaders are busy taking selfies to upload on facebook, in one particular church, the pastor rushes off  to play golf with his church members after church.  Ah! Youth meeting is held in restaurants in style so that the young enjoy but why is the goal only to ‘enjoy’  rather than bringing about a change in the lives of young people?  Chewing gum is alright but if youth meetings are held ‘this’ way, then the devil would chew away the young people. Eli and both his sons died on one single day. Caveat!
