Paul learnt the hard way that politics is a mess. He errs, apologises and then is as wise as a serpent gentle as a dove. A challenge for our times

Scriptures: Acts 23

I've lost count of things I have nearly posted or retweeted and have hit cancel, because it's not helpful.
Really challenged by one of the messages I listened to as I was preparing this message. So let's pray and buckle up for the ride!

Acts 23:1-5 Politics is a mess, we need to be different
Just a few verses before the Roman commander orders the Jewish council to meet with Paul and the Roman authorities - that's never going to go well.
Gazing intently, staring, Paul begins to speak. This is a ridiculous kangaroo court of an innocent man. The High Priest Ananias orders a slap for Paul. angry, frustrated, Paul responds, "God is going to strike you, you whitewashed wall" - God is going to slap you, you hypocrite! Paul's not perfect. Jesus has told us if we are slapped to turn the other cheek. But Paul gives a verbal slap initially.

Commentators gives a number of explanations for this - John Stott reminds us that Paul had bad eyesight Gal 6:11 hints that he has to write with big handwriting. The whitewashed wall words is as much an accusation of hypocrisy as an allusion to the white robed figure across the room that he can only dimly perceive.

Paul is challenged that he has just insulted the high Priest Ananias - "Would you revile God's High Priest?"
Paul apologises with a reference to Ex 22:28 that we shouldn't speak evil of a ruler of the people.

"Respect the position even if the person holding it is not respectable."
He's part of God's plan, he is God's man even if he is evil.
Ananias is a bad man - he is greedy, violent and ended up being assassinated by Jews in the rebellion of AD 66. Even though he is not respectable and a disgrace - he is the ruler And so Paul apologises for his rudeness.

Principle for us that's kind of hard at the moment.
Respect the position even if the person holding it is not respectable.

The Trump, Clinton campaigns were horrible and vitriolic - Obama said that Trump was temperamentally unsuited to be president. And yet when Trump won, Obama immediately changed his tone - because he respects the position even if the person holding it is not respectable.
We can disagree, even vehemently, but we need to do it with respect,

As bad here - FB and Twitter are getting vile in their divisiveness - with people using Ad hominem attacks - so attacking the person rather than the point. "Maybot", "Jeremy Runt" and Boris Johnson calling Corbyn a "mutton headed mugwump". Schoolboy playground insults but not honourable or respectful.
Some of you proudly are not into that social media stuff, but do you buy and read papers that accuse judges of being traitors or politicians for treason and insight anger and bile?

I'm a political animal and am having to not open my mouth or post and retweet. I've made mistakes in the past and by God's grace changing!

Politics at the moment is full of emotion and emotions make people so self-righteous that they end up doing un-righteous things.

So Paul apologises for his outburst. Changes tack and ends up being "wise as a serpent, gentle as a dove"
V6-10 Wise as serpents, gentle as doves Matt 10:16
Pondering that one for years.
Obviously not wanting us to be like Satan who came as a serpent!
There's a wisdom about how snakes work - they bide their time, shrewdly taking in their environment. They back off if they aren't going to win - slithering off if walkers are making enough noise! They can only strike once - and they when they do - Boom!
Coupled with that the idea is that we are gentle at the same time.

So Paul gets to strike once and he does it wisely.
He's on trial in front of the Jewish council made up of Pharisees who are strict legalists but open to the supernatural and believing in resurrection.
There's also Sadducees who don't believe in the resurrection at all.

So wise as a serpent Paul says - I'm on trial because of the hope of the resurrection of the dead - not I'm on trial because of the resurrection of Jesus that would have antagonised both Pharisees and Sadducees. By just saying general resurrection, he has split the council - the Pharisees siding with him and the Sadducees going nuts.

If you think our political scene is rough with the way people speak to each other - at least they aren't throwing shoes at each other!
Paul has chucked in a verbal hand grenade and steps back. They start screaming and ranting and getting violent.

Sad that the religious people go nuts and Paul has to be rescued by an evil pagan army v10

Be wise in how you respond. Pick your battles like a serpent and when you do need to say something, strike as it were, be gentle as a dove.

v11 Next thing is God gives courage
Jesus appears to Paul for the third time. Jack Deere says that the clearer the prophetic revelation the harder the assignment and that's because you are going to need to know that you know, that you know that God has asked you to do that assignment. So Paul gets an actual visitation! for the third time - the first was on the road to Damascus when Jesus called Paul to follow him, the second was in a trance in the Temple in the last chapter and now Jesus stands by Paul and says take courage you must testify in Rome as well as in Jerusalem.

God often speaks in the quietness of the night - better God than the devil - Smith Wigglesworth apparently had the devil wake him up and he said "oh it's only you" turned over and went back to sleep. Some of you are tormented by night terrors and nightmares and even demonic dreams - you need to quote and claim Psalm 4:8 to yourself. Maybe you need some prayer to stop it - had occasions in my life where I have needed that.
Prayed for a young lady in Germany for that - funny thing is that Germans wish each other Good dreams like we say Sweet Dreams - but the German word for trauma is very similar to the word for dreams and I wished the poor girl Good Traumas!

Jesus comes to Paul to give him courage - he must testify! There aren't many musts in the New Testament
Jesus - I must be about my father's business
John the Baptist - he must increase, I must decrease
You must be born again.

Paul must testify in Rome - therefore God will give him providential protection.

v12-35 Providential Protection
Remember our emotions can make us so self-righteous, that we end up doing unrighteous things.
So a bunch of Jewish rednecks, come up with a stupid plan to violate some of the ten commandments - to kill Paul, to get the Jewish Council to lie to get Paul to come to them so they can kill him.
There's 40 of them who join together to make an oath.

An oath is when you bind yourself to do something stupid - not always, but often, which is why Jesus forbids it in Matt 5 - let your yes be a yes and your no be a no.

Stupid loves company - they incite each other to be stupid.
People do bold things in a group that they wouldn't do face to face alone. Bold stupid things and bold good things. Here stupid!
People share things online, write to newspapers that they wouldn't face to face. Be careful.

So these 40 Jewish rednecks, bind themselves not to eat until they have killed Paul. I wonder what would have happened to them. Did they starve? Probably not. There are provisions in the Jewish system to break an oath of circumstance are beyond your control!

Because Paul must testify, God works behind the scenes v16-22
a series of unlikely things happen
* a boy overhears the plot
* The boy was Paul's sister's son
* The boy has the courage to come to the roman Barracks to tell his uncle
* The centurion listened to Paul and took the boy to the tribune
* The tribune listened, took note of it and took action.

So we have 40 rednecks called Darryl up against 200 soldiers, 200 spearmen (good luck coming close) and 70 horsemen. No contest!
So when God says you must, you will!

Sum up
* Politics is a mess - we need to be different
* In our interactions, be respectful
* Respect the ruler even if they are not respectable
* Watch how we talk and post
* Be wise as serpents, gentle as doves - back off and only strike once with gentleness
* God gives courage, what do you need courage for?
* God will be with you to do what you are called to do

Pray for power and courage!
