A trainer gathered some miserable men and taught them various skills of exploit. In a short time of life, these men had become so skillful and respected in various fields. They were very prominently effective yet cannot function without their master as the tools for their exploits are too expensive they cannot afford them.
Some of them felt they had known quite much and wisdom, power and skill as their master. With this pride, they won't respect, heed instructions or obey him any longer. Some opted out of his kingdom in attempt to sponsor a conspiracy against Him, while some stayed within to rudely frustrate his intensions, vision and kingdom.
The tools needed in God's ministry are very expensive that the least cannot literally be bought by the wealthiest soul on earth. The tools of God's grace, mercy, power, wisdom, anointing and God's glory are very expensive without God in such live. No one can possess any of these tools or use it rightly except God be present in such life.
So devil did rebelled, after God had fashioned him with many precious substances. He thought of his accomplishment and acknowledges ignorantly that he could topple God's Government his creator. By this, he opted out of God's will Eze 28: 12-23. And by this, every good things in his life were corrupted, in the absence of God- he was the first Rebellious elders and he has done quite much in instigating many accomplished men and women against God- I pray you'll not be one!
In revelation 4:1- God's intensions and expectations after He had wonderfully garnished the earth and lives of men, was revealed. There, God's throne and His majestic personality, the responsibility of the four wonderful living creatures and twenty-four elders were revealed. The description of God's throne was beyond the obligation of perfect arrangement and composition of letters and his majestic personality is wonderfully awesome.
I wonder what and how the palace's court must have been: A throne surrounded by twenty-four other thrones occupied by twenty-four elders doing what?
" Whenever the living creatures give glory and honour and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever the twenty- four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who live forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying You are worthy, o Lord To receive glory and honour and power For you created all things And by your will they exit and were created!
Each of these elders do falls down and cast those golden crowns of theirs down to worship God- quite surprising! Obviously, They are kings, despite this; they still recognized the Lordship of the king of kings.
But sadden enough,
Just like Lucifer, there are many rebellious elders- men and women, Who by hands of God's mercy, compassion and favour had been brought from merely useless background and had been set upon thrones of achievement and success, who are now planning to de-throne God from His great Throne.
Men and women who have really made it in the platform of success:
Great ministers so to say, successful pastor and evangelist, gifted and talented believers, the accomplished saints in the kingdom, find it very difficult to have or stand from their thrones of achievement and big names, let alone cast their crowns of praise and applause to extol God.
Is it a crime for God to have blessed these arrogant achievers? Is it an offence for God to have endowed such so- called men and women with success and wealth that now cloud their eyes to see the ancient of days on his throne and constantly worship Him? Thanks for Mr. Death, many just like devil would have organized from their thrones and impeach God. Has God made mistake to set you on the throne f achievement, that all you can compensate him with is to starve him with his praise, Honour and power.
Men and women that He made in His will and power and given thrones, garments of praise and golden crowns have used all these God's endowed to build empire of pride"- the excellent boaster, who had turned themselves to the only message, all must hear and know the wonderful blown of them! Boastful testimonies!
The purpose of your maker in setting you on the throne you are now is to give him glory, honour and praise, if not, you should have remained or dead in frustration and wretchedness from where he picked you from. You cannot continue to contest his glory, honour and praise and keep succeeding.
Note: Every leader who rebels to God will never lack rebellion among his group. Men will go against your proposed wonderful work because you have set your self against your maker
No rebellious Elder in the Kingdom ever dies celebrated by God or peaceful-
While you proudly maintain your position on the throne while you ought to fall before him and worship your maker, if you maintain your position of pride still,
You are rebelling; heaven won't look kindly on this!
What other ministry have you carved out?
He made you what you are; your ministry so called must have failed long ago. your adored gifts and talent must have been covered with dross but He worked on them. You must have lost every thing since but he kept all for you and now h if you fail to cast down your crowns and worship him you are a Rebellious elder! You have set your self in battle against God, who wins!
