Scripture: 1 Chronicles 21:29,30
Verses 29,30 say, “For the tabernacle of the Lord and the altar of the burnt offering, which Moses had made in the wilderness, were at that time at the high place in Gibeon. But David could not go before it to inquire of God, for he was afraid of the sword of the angel of the Lord.” This judicial experience brought the fear of God back to the nation of Israel, and certainly to David. Can we loose the Sword of the Lord? Can we stop the Sword of the Lord? The answer is, absolutely! That is the picture that comes from this Old Testament revelation of the altar of God. That temple with that altar is now inside every single one of us. We can loose the Sword of the Lord and we can pray to stop it. Jesus is the Son of David and the Firstborn of many brethren which means we are the sons of David! Isn’t it about time that we said yes to fully following him?
