Popular Gospel Actor and Evangelist, Mike Bamiloye, in a recent post on his official Facebook page spoke about "The Fall Of One, The Down Of Many." There are situations in life whereby the form of one person leads to the fall of many people and the man of God uses the story of Achan as an example in Joshua 7:11-12.
He said that it was Achan, the son of Carmi of the tribe of Judah that stole from the stuff in Jericho and his action brought a curse upon the whole of the children of Israel. It was him who stole from the cursed things but the Bible accounted that "...for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have stolen..." It was ACHAN who should bear the consequences of his sin of covetousness, but instead, the Bible recorded that: .." therefore, the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed..."
However, he then said do you realize that your actions and inactions could spell some consequences not only for you but also for your group members, your children, your relatives and co-tenants or fellow workers? Do you know that your habitual obstinacy and disobedience can spell some dooms to your children and immediate family? Because, if you are living or working in a wrong place against the will of God, whatever you reap there passes down to your children and family and probably relatives as well.
According to him, some leaders have misled their members and followers and are making them suffer innocently at present. Some parents have caused the horrible consequences their children are currently facing, because of their obstinacy and disobedience in the Lord's presence. Same for the Nations, when the leaders are not interceded, their misbehaviour would mean horrible consequences for the citizens.
Finally, your disobedience to the Instructions of God would not affect only you, but multitudes of others. Your unbelief and lack of faith would not only affect you but multitudes of others around or behind you. The consequences of your sinful and ungodly life are not going to be on you alone, but on some multitudes that your life could directly affect. Therefore, may the Lord help me and you to live right in His presence.
