THE GALL OF BITTERNESS

INTRODUCTION: THE MERRIAM WEBSTER DICTIONARY DEFINES GALL AS BITTERNESS OF SPIRIT OR RANKER, MEANING BITTER, DEEP-SEATED ILL WILL.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: PETER, WHILE MINISTERING IN SAMARIA, ENCOUNTERED AN OPPORTUNIST NAMED SIMON. SIMON REQUESTED THE SAME POWER AND AUTHORITY PETER HAD BY THE LAYING ON OF HANDS. PETER STERNLY REBUKED HIM. ACTS 8: 23 (NASB), “FOR I SEE THAT YOU ARE IN THE GALL OF BITTERNESS AND IN THE BONDAGE OF INIQUITY.”

THE APOSTLE PAUL ALSO ADDRESSED BITTERNESS AND FOUR OTHER UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIORS.

EPHESIANS 4: 31 (NASB) LET ALL BITTERNESS AND WRATH AND ANGER AND CLAMOR AND SLANDER BE PUT AWAY FROM YOU, ALONG WITH ALL MALICE. THE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION READS, GET RID OF ALL BITTERNESS, RAGE, ANGER, HARSH WORDS AND SLANDER, AS WELL AS ALL TYPES OF EVIL BEHAVIOR

NOTE BITTERNESS IS LISTED FIRST. EXTREME BITTERNESS PRODUCES WRATH (RAGE), ANGER, CLAMOR (HARSH WORDS) AND EVIL SPEAKING.

YOU BELIEVER MUST DIVEST YOUSELF OF BITTERNESS. THROUGH REPENTANCE. YOU WILL DISCOVER THE REMAINING MALADIES WILL ALSO VANISH! QUOTE: EVIL PASSIONS EXPRESS THEMSELVES IN MANY WAYS: THEY ARE EVERY ONE TO BE PUT AWAY IN THE “PUTTING OFF” OF THE OLD MAN. (F.B. MEYER). A BELIEVER IS A NEW CREATION IN CHRIST!

APPLICATION: BITTERNESS IS CAUSTIC AND DETRIMENTAL TO YOUR SPIRITUAL WALK! PUT IT AWAY!
