False Prophets Seek to Turn Politicians from the Truth

Paul ran into a problem that happens more and more today, that is, someone not of the truth seeks to turn political leaders away from hearing the word of God, “Now when they had gone through the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Bar-jesus, who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name is translated) withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith” (Acts 13:6-8).
Let us prepare ourselves for this because this kind of activity is increasing and will continue to increase. We cannot stop speaking the word of God to those who want to hear, and we cannot stop exposing political leaders to the Scriptures.
Let us pray to have boldness as Paul and keep on doing the Lord’s will.
