The Lord said to Moses, "Say to the Israelites: 'When a man or woman wrongs another in any way and so is unfaithful to the Lord, that person is guilty and must confess the sin he has committed."
Numbers 4: 49
When I read this chapter, I remembered a movie released in 1983 called "Unfaithfully Yours" by two main actors Dudley Moore and Nastassja Kinski. It's about a famous music composer and orchestral conductor who believes that his wife is having an affair with a handsome violinist. So he planned to kill both his wife and the man!
Jealousy kills. The Spirit of jealousy is such a evil spirit that it captures so many people and pulls them away from God into darkness.
Jesus told me today about the importance of being pure, clean, holy and faithful. God gave detailed instructions and steps for the Israelites to be pure, clean, holy and faithful. How about today? We do not need to follow those rules that God gave to the Israelites in that culture and time, but what have we got?
Do you have a daily intimate relationship with God so that the Holy Spirit can exercise His power in you? Only the Holy Spirit can show us all those sins we are not aware of and those we do not want to repent so that we can be transformed to be more like Christ.
Dear Holy Spirit,
Review in me my sins so that I know how to repent. Cleanse me Lord Jesus with your blood that I can be faithful to you. You are my Savior, my King and my Lord of life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
My son, Ignatius, completed his three weeks mission in Ethiopia a few days ago.We are so joyful to welcome him home and know that he experienced God mightily in that three weeks. His one word of experience is "JOY"! Please click this link to read his wonderful sharing:http://21ethiopiandays.wordpress.com/

Speaking of a personal intimate daily relationship with Jesus, here are a few quotes for AW Tozer that I find really helpful: 1) To desire revival and at the same time to neglect prayer and devotion is to wish one way and walk another. 2) The key to prayer is simply praying.ReplyDelete
3) Prayer is the most sacred occupation that a person could engage in. 4) The widest thing in the universe is not space. It is the potential capacity of the human heart.
May the Lord Jesus continue to spark this vision of raising people from the 10% daily devotions to a much more engaged level. Bring revival Lord, beginning with us. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Yes, yes, thanks Ed! Let's work hard together to bring revival!ReplyDelete
