Know who your Leaders are. Your Leaders are held at a higher standard, that’s why they are Leaders.
In the bible in Joshua chapters 6-7 it speaks about the walls of Jericho, the children of Israel are building up their faith to knock down the walls of Jericho. You (pastors) are building up faith with your leaders to do the work of God. As we know in the story, the walls of Jericho came down, but there was a condition made. Joshua 6:19 (KJV) But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord.
One person did not obey the condition God had made, it was Achan. God said do not take the gold or silver and vessels of brass and iron, Achan did. Achan brought a curse to the children of Israel, at the time it seemed ok, but it was not, a price would be paid.
One person brought a curse to the children of Israel, Joshua 7:1 (KJV) But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against the children of Israel.
