1 Kings 18:21 (NKJV)
¶ And Elijah came to all the people, and said, "How long will you FALTER BETWEEN TWO OPINIONS? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people answered him not a word.

Let’s read this verse from the World English Bible translation: “Elijah came near to all the people, and said, "How long will YOU WAVER BETWEEN THE TWO SIDES? If Yahweh is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him." The people answered him not a word.” 1 Kings 18:21.

There is a disease in Psychiatry called schizophrenia. Folks who suffer from such an illness are called schizophrenics. Let me do a little medical explanation here: schizophrenia is a psychotic disorder characterized by a progressive deterioration of one’s personality.

This condition makes an individual to withdraw from reality, hallucinate, and become emotionally unstable. Folks who have this illness often demonstrates “split personality”. People with this condition behave in a way that is motivated by contradictory or conflicting principles.

They vacillate in their words and deeds. You can’t really predict them. When you meet with them in the morning they are saying a particular thing, but in the afternoon or so, when you ask them what their stance is, you will be amazed that they have a different opinion FAR FROM their initial conviction.

They seem to be suffering from “duality”. They are not stable. The Bible describes folks like that as those “giving to change”.

Proverbs 24:21 (KJV)
¶ My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and MEDDLE NOT WITH THEM THAT ARE GIVEN TO CHANGE:

It’s clear here what our actions should be to folks who waver, and DON’T WANT to come out of that lifestyle; God says “meddle not with them”, that is , don’t associate with them, because they could influence you with their thought pattern.

                                               LiMPiNG BETWEEN TWO SiDES

Satan likes it when we halt between two opinions. He is the author of confusion. He wants to keep folks in the dark, and as long as you are in the dark, especially in issues that have to do with God’s Will, you will never be a success in life.

It matters what your view of God is. How do you see God? Never you try to reason out God, because He s not a man. In our reasoning we think that sometimes God is good, and at other times He is bad. We reason like this: “Who knows, God may be happy today with me; and tomorrow, He might be angry with me”

Did you know that there are folks who believe that God sometimes blesses, but at other times, He curses. Today, He is my Healer, but tomorrow, He may be given me a disease to “teach me a lesson” or to “humble me”

You see, as long as folks are like this, then they are schizophrenic, spiritually speaking. They are “tossed to and fro”. James describes them as “double minded”, and such folks can never see the GLORY of God!

When people are not SURE of WHAT the Lord can do at a time; when their BELiEF is shaky, just know that they only have “head knowledge” of God’s Word and not “heart knowledge”. Schizophrenic believers are living between two covenants - the Old Covenant and the New Covenant.

Many preachers are also schizophrenic! Imagine what it means to stay under the ministry of a schizophrenic pastor! Such Men of God minister from two mountains: Mount Sinai and Mount Zion.

When you minster from Sinai, you will end up teaching and preaching “mixture” and “cursing” the worshipers! The Old Covenant is a veiled revelation; you can’t fully know the Lord and His ways just staying there.

In the New Covenant, we have a better picture of God the Father. Jesus came to “show us plainly” the reality of God and His Will. You may not have realized it, but serving God was more of a “struggle” in the Old Covenant days, compared to us today in the age of Grace.

When you ask folks with spiritual schizophrenia when they feel God is ANGRY with them, the answer you will get is this: “When I do WRONG”. So, in their reasoning, when THEY DO right, God is HAPPY with them!

What folks like these are saying is that God BLESSES them because of them. If that’s the case, what about Jesus? Where does He stand in all these? Why the SACRiFiCE of Christ on the CROSS? Then Jesus WASTED His precious BLOOD and TiME hanging on the CROSS!

                                           OUR PREACHERS ARE TO BLAME!

Folks cannot rise above what they have heard and keep hearing. I am a preacher, I know what I was, and what I preached years ago before LiGHT came to me and what I know now. Yes, our preachers are to blame for spiritual schizophrenia in the church!

Majority of our preachers are preaching “mixture gospel”. What is a “mixture gospel’? Any gospel that put emphasis on “self help; human performance, and the law”, is “mixture”. The true gospel is GRACE.
What kind of GRACE? I mean GRACE that came by Jesus!

GRACE is not a doctrine, topic, or subject, it is a PERSON, and His Name is Jesus! Christianity is a “FiNiSHED WORK” And God expects us to “LiVE IN THE FiNiSHED”

God BLESSES me today because of Jesus; He is not ANGRY with me today because of Jesus; I can expect to PROSPER in the “here and now”, because of Jesus! Hallelujah.

If you want to know WHAT God THiNKS about YOU and HOW He SEES you, LOOK AT JESUS! Stop living your life by the opinion of schizophrenic preachers. Go to the Word and FiND OUT for yourself. The Bible says in 2 Cor 3: 15-16, “But even to this day, WHEN MOSES IS READ, A VEiL LiES ON THEIR HEART.

It’s only when we TURN to the Lord that the VEiL, the CONFUSiON, the DOUBT, and the LiMPiNG BETWEEN TWO SiDES is taken away!
