Do Not Touch My Anointed

God awaken me early this morning.  The story of David and Saul came into my spirit.  As I thought about the story, I realized the seriousness and affect of saying, gossiping, accusing, hoping, and speaking things on and  about the men and women God has called into His service.

Now listen to what I am saying.  We are all human.  We all fell.  We all make mistakes and sometimes even use bad judgment.   But we need to remember that just because a man are woman is a preacher does not mean that they are not going to makes mistakes.  I want you to remember also that in God’s eyes, telling a so call little white lie, is just as and the same as committing murder and stealing.
I believe that before we start making judgments on a person, we need to make sure we know the person.  We need to visit, talk and even take time to pray for the person.

    (I Samuel 24:4-) says, “And the men of David said unto him, behold the day of which the Lord said unto thee. Behold, I will deliver thine enemy into thine hand, that thou mayest do to him as it shall seem good unto thee.  Then David arose, and cut off the skirt of Saul’s robe privily.  And it came to pass afterward, that David’s heart smote him, because he had cut off Saul’s skirt. And he said unto his men, The Lord forbid that I should do this thin unto my master, the Lord’s anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the Lord.   So David stayed his servants with these words, and suffered them not to rise against Saul.  But Saul rose up out of the cave, and went on his way.  David also arose afterward, and went soul of the cave, and cried after Saul saying, My lord the king. And when Saul looked behind him, David stooped with his face to the earth, and bowed himself.  And David said to Saul, Wherefore hearest thou men’s words, saying, behold David seeketh thy hurt?  Behold, this day thine eyes have seen how that the Lord had delivered thee to day into mine hand in the cave, and some bade me kill thee, but men eye spared thee, and I said, I will not put forth mine hand against my lord, for he is the Lord’s anointed. Moreover, my father, see, yea, see the skirt of thy robe in my hand, for in that I cut off the skirt of thy robe, and killed thee not, know thou and see that there is neither evil nor transgression in mine hand, and I have not sinned against thee, yet you huntest my soul to take it.  The Lord judge between me and thee, and the Lord avenge me of thee, but mine hand shall not be upon thee.”

Now! Did you get that last part?  David said even though you Saul have transgressed against me, I have not sinned against you.  I will let the Lord judge between me and thee.  And the Lord will avenge me of thee. But in no way will I judge you.  No not me.
Listen children of God,  if someone has hurt you, are did someone wrong, let God be the judge.  For when we take judgment on someone, mostly a servant of God, we are putting death in our own hands.  Just pray for the person that you think did something wrong.  For tomorrow we may be the one who slips and falls.  And it may just be that person you have gossiped about that will take your hand and help lift you up.
    Remember God says, “you can not come to me for forgiveness, until you first forgive your brother and sister.”  You may say to me, but Pastor Pat, I have not did anything against a person.  So I do not have to ask forgiveness.  Let me tell you, if you have gossiped against that person, you have hurt that person.  So yes, you have sinned against that person. So please do not judge people until you first remember, God loves them and God loves you.  So let God be the judge of us all. 
God bless each of you today.  And I pray that each of you set your hearts straight as I also check my heart.
Love, Prayers and Blessings,
Pastor Pat Aman
