KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 19:13 There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.
After three months of their journey to the promised land. The Lord called on Moses to come up to the mountain. The Lord commanded Moses to instruct the children of Israel to sanctify themselves because he would be speaking to the whole congregation. Moses instructed them never to touch the mountain. These people were not to touch the mountain because God had come on the mountain. His presence on the mountain meant it had become Holy. Exodus 19:13. The bible teaches we are the temple of God and God lives in us. If God came unto a mountain which cannot be touched because it had become a Holy mountain, why are we the temple of God yet we look so ordinary. Many of us do not recognize we are very pure as God, because His presence in us gives us the very Holiness of God. We can only transmit the impact of His presence to the world around us, when we relate to Him with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12). 1st Corinthians 3:16 “know ye not that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you”.
Many of us look ordinary because we do not recognise the magnitude of power that we carry. Many of us have become so accustomed with the life of the world around us ,and so we live just like them. Many Christians fear what they fear. A lot more just live like the way people who have no faith in God do.
When Christians acknowledge the magnitude of the power and glory that resides in them and begin to talk, act from the point of view of the greatest power residing in them, then they would continually be a manifestation of the power of God.
In 2nd Samuel 5:1-7, the Philistines took custody of the Ark of God and placed it in Dagon’s room. Dagon was their chief God. On the next morning Dagon had fallen down facing the Ark of God. They raised it up locating it at it’s proper place. By the following day Dagon was not only on the ground but the arms and legs were broken from the body. This is a wooden box which carried God’s presence. Dear child of God you have been sanctified by the blood of Jesus, bought by His blood and God lives in you. Do not live as an ordinary person. Acknowledge that the greater one lives in you and you cannot be molested by demons and any evil power.Your life must torment the Devils instead.
I am the living Ark of God, for God lives presently in me.My life is a special kind ,bearing the very Holiness of God and manifesting the great power of God.I am a terror to the evil powers of this life and no evil power can harm me in Jesus name.
1 Peter 1:15-16 ” But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
Colossians 1:26-27 ” Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:”
