S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
The Levites, however, are to set up their tents around the tabernacle of the covenant law so that my wrath will not fall on the Israelite community. The Levites are to be responsible for the care of the tabernacle of the covenant law.
As God directed Moses to count the people of Israel, He also directed Moses as to where the different tribes were to be arranged in the wilderness. The Levites, who represented the MINISTRY, were situated around the Tabernacle to protect the “Rule of Law” for the nation.
In this passage it is established that “The MINISTRY Is God’s Protection For The Nation.” In other words, when the spiritual leaders are strong the nation will be strong, and that works conversely of course. Today MINISTERS have been deterred from their calling. They discuss systems for growth, the message of grace, and the theme of injustice. That’s good, but what about other sins against God’s moral law? Rarely are they being discussed in our pulpits, and when they are the promoter of such comes across in a religious way that lacks Godly compassion. As Pastors, it’s time that we return to weeping between the porch and the altar for the sins of our people. After all, “The MINISTRY Is God’s Protection For The Nation.”
I’m sorry. Give me courage for the task ahead! Amen
