Our readings in the book of Numbers and the Gospel of Luke include references to cleansing.  In Numbers we read yesterday how they consecrated the tabernacle now that it had been set up, offerings were made by each of the 12 tribes.  It was about to be used for the first time to celebrate the Passover.  It was now the first month of the second year after leaving Egypt [Ch. 9 v.1-4].               Today we read that the Levites who were to officiate over the Passover had to go through a cleansing process.  Moses is to “sprinkle the water of purification upon them … wash their clothes and cleanse themselves” [8 v.7].

In our Luke reading we have the dramatic story of Jesus entering Jerusalem riding on a colt.  There is great rejoicing by the multitudes, but as the Master draws near to the city he weeps over it saying “would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace!” [19 v.42]   Then enters the temple, the place where God dwells, as the “tabernacle” had been over 1,500 years earlier.

Some urgent cleansing is needed! “He entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold, saying to them, it is written, my house shall be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of robbers” [v.45,46].

We particularly note how Jesus calls it a ‘house of prayer’ rather than a house of worship.  What is the difference?  Human attitudes create the difference. All too often places of worship centre on those officiating – and the pomp and ceremony involved.

It reminds us of the little story we read yesterday of the two men who went up to the temple, one was a Pharisee and he said in his prayer “God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.  I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all I get” [18 v.11,12]

He suffered from “I” trouble.  It says he prayed with himself, his prayer just went round and came back to himself; it never went up to heaven.  It illustrates that our hearts need cleansing when we come to worship and the wonderful temple yet to be built, as a “house of prayer” – what a purpose it will serve!.   But until then let us make sure our hearts are in a cleansed state each time we come together to sing praise and worship in whatever situation that may be.  I hearts should have been cleansed by the personal prayer we offered this morning!

“MAGNIFY HIM WITH THANKSGIVING”

Is there an attitude of thankfulness for all the blessings we have today? In most countries there is ample food and clothing, especially in Australia where there is an abundance of everything we could possibly require – and many things we do not need!   It is such a contrast to the time when we were young – when we lived – during the awesomely destructive 1939-45 war – and experienced the difficulties for years afterwards.  But now there is more than plenty of everything – but how many are thankful?

We have to say that a thankful spirit is rarely seen, instead the spirit is to seek more and more, especially money – and look for someone to blame (usually the Govt) when it is lacking.

This is a train of thought that occurred to us as we read David’s 69th Psalm, written at a difficult time of his life, despairing of “those who hate me without a cause” [v.4]. He saw many who lacked any love for God and he says to God, “the reproaches of those who reproached you have fallen on me” [v.9]

Parts of the Psalm are a prophecy of the experiences of his ‘greater son’ Jesus, “I looked for pity, but there was none … for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink” [v.20, 21].  This pointed forward when David’s greater son was on the cross – see John 19 v.29

Of those who showed no pity, David wrote, “Let them be blotted out of the book of the living” [v.28] and sadly that will also be the lot of all those who do not have the spirit of thanksgiving, but instead take everything, as their “right” to possess.

The Psalm starts to reach its climax as David writes, “let your salvation, O God set me on high!  I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.” [v.29,30].  We saw a direct parallel to this in our Exodus reading (Ch.15) when “Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the LORD” [v.1].  It was a song of thanksgiving, “I will sing to the LORD … he has become my salvation … I will praise him … I will exalt him.” [v.2]   And surely we will do this, if by His grace we are there, in his kingdom.

Those under Moses in the wilderness, initially had a spirit of “thanksgiving” but. sadly, as we read on in Exodus, we will see how the great majority failed to maintain their thankfulness and confidence in God.  In v. 26 we read today that the LORD said to them, “If you will diligently listen to the voice of the LORD your God and do that which is right in his eyes …” [v.26].  But they did not continue to listen and do so.

Today, we can say, if we will continue to diligently read the word God has caused to be preserved – and “magnify him with thanksgiving” in our hearts genuinely believing and living in ways that show we really believe – then – yes then, we will reach that wondrous promised land – a renewed and glorified earth.

“O GOD … EARNESTLY I SEEK YOU” Christadelphian thoughts based on the daily readings for 3rd Feb

“O GOD … EARNESTLY I SEEK YOU”

David’s intense personal relationship with God is an example and an inspiration for us. Psalm 62 starts, “For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.” And then Psalm 63, ´ O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you “   Let us all us all develop such spirituality of thought and meditation that we can echo David’s words with all our heart.

David declares that God “alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.” [62 v.2] And how our world is going to be “greatly shaken” as God’s judgements on its evil, its’ total ungodliness, start to happen.  Let us remember what we read in Psalm 16 recently. “I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.” [Psa. 16 v.8,9]

So let us be ready to say – again and again – with increasing intensity, ´ O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; ´my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you. “ And what greater blessings can we have, for we have “the son of David,” – and very soon now – we sense – our seeking will become wondrous sight – and with the fullest reality, the words of the crowds we read recently in Matthew’s gospel, will be echoing again from the voices of a multitude of immortalised saints! “Hosanna to the Son of David … Hosanna in the highest.” [Matt. 21 v.9]

IN WHICH GOD DELIGHTS IN

The readings today all challenge us to think and meditate on their application to ourselves.  Much personal meditation is called for.  Genesis 48 contains Jacob’s reflections at the end of his life, his relationship with “the God who has been my shepherd all my life long to this day” [v.15].

Psalm 51 contains David’s outpourings of remorse over his failures, pleading, “according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions” [v.1] saying to God, “Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart” [v.6] The secret heart is the hidden heart David had not been conscious of, which was in desperate need of repair. The Hebrew implies this.

Today we would probably talk about inner integrity.  The central point is that we fail to truly sense how God sees how we think, as well as hearing what we say.

This is the point Paul has been making in writing to the Romans “if you are sure that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness … you then who teach others, do you not teach yourself?  While you preach against stealing, do you steal? [2 v.19,21]  The Jews lacked wisdom in their inward being; their knowledge of God was in the head, but not in the heart.

“The Jews”, writes Paul, “were entrusted with the oracles of God” [3 v.2].   Many, especially their leaders, were proud of this.  But Paul asks, “Are we Jews any better off?

No, not at all”, he answers, “all … are under sin, as it is written, ‘None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God … there is no fear (awe) of God before their eyes” [v.9,10,18]

Paul is quoting this from David’s Psalms (14 & 36), how appropriate!   It is essential that we train our hearts into ways of thinking in which God delights in – and we can only do that if we are totally conscious of his all seeing eye.  This is the pivot on which living by faith revolves.

“CLAIMING TO BE WISE, THEY BECAME …”

 

Yesterday we started reading Paul’s letter to the Romans.  It contains so much that is relevant to life today.  Paul writes of how humans, “claiming to be wisethey became fools” [Ch.1 v.22]

He says, “what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them” [v.19]   He says, “his invisible attributes …. have been clearly perceivedever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made” [v.20]   In other words, although God himself cannot be seen by human eyes, the evidence of his existence should be plain to humans because of all the remarkable things which he has created.

Paul continues, “they became futile in their thinking and their foolish heart was darkened.” [v.21]   The foolishness of those days, which still continues among some nations, is to believe God is represented in animals, such as Elephants, and to worship them.

But today, throughout what we call the Western world, so many who are “claiming to be wise” – believe there is no God of any kind, that everything that exists in some unknowable way – created itself!  This was possible, they strangely reason, if we allow enough millions and billions of years, through an endless series of “accidents.”

Yet the more humans discover the wonders of the world in which they live, the more incredible they finds it to be, all the wonders of DNA being one of the recent examples.  As a result, the more foolish their words in “claiming to be wise” appear to be!  Marvellous designs – but no designer!!

The tragedy is that, having convinced themselves there is no God, the words of Paul which follow are even more true today than ever before.  He wrote “and since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice … haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless … “ [v.28-31]

There is much more in this chapter including a condemnation of homosexuality; as things that humans do when they have no knowledge or belief in the one and only God.  It is becoming clearer that there is no middle road, we either believe or we do not – and if we believe, we must not be half hearted about it.

When the Kingdom is established, may our king say to us as Pharaoh said to Joseph, “there is none so discerning and wise as you are.” [Gen. 41 v.39]  But for the present we must heed Paul’s warning in Romans, “Never be wise in your own sight.” [12 v.16]

“WHY SHOULD I FEAR IN TIME OF TROUBLE”

 

How challenging for us is the ungodliness that surrounds us. It has some degree of attraction for us in our fleshly weaknesses.  Our Psalm 49 today begins, “Hear this, all peoples! Give ear, all inhabitants of the world, both low and high, rich and poor together!”    How few can “hear” God’s message to them today!

Verse 5 jumps out at us and challenges us to remember and keep repeating what we read here! “Why should I fear in times of trouble, when … iniquity … surrounds me …”  We are surrounded by iniquity more than ever. Such are the ways of life that almost no one has any thought of their being an all-seeing God who has his eyes of the earth and the people he created.

The next verse asks about “those who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches?” What is described as their future? The Psalmist is inspired to write “no man can … give to God the price of his life … that he should live on forever …” [v.7,8]

In v,12 we pick up a heart-challenging declaration, “Man in his pomp will not remain; he is like the beasts that perish.”  But this is a description of a certain path – called elsewhere as the wide way!  Earlier this month we read the words of Jesus that “the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.” [Matt. 7 v.13]

However – back in Psalm 49 the Psalmist declares (and invites his readers to sing) “God will ransom my soul from the power of the grave for he will receive me.”[v.15]  All who have this hope in their hearts, those who are true committed believers in God and his word should ask themselves, as we read (and quoted) in v. 5, “Why should I fear in times of trouble?” We should recall what we read yesterday at the start of Psalm 46, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way ….”

“BEHOLD A DAY IS COMING…” Christadelphian thoughts based on the daily readings for 28th Dec

“BEHOLD A DAY IS COMING…”

 

Today’s reading of the last chapter of the prophet Zechariah starts with, “Behold a day is coming …” and our reading in Revelation contains the only verse in the Bible with the word ARMAGEDDON.     False spirits (attitudes?)  “ … go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God Almighty. Behold I am coming like a thief!  Blessed is the one who stays awake … and they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon” [Ch.16 v.14-16]

That word “Armageddon” has cropped up in our Newspapers quite a lot, sometimes in relation to climate change and the potential for more fearsome, indeed awesome weather events.  It was used in relation to the world-wide financial crisis 8 years ago, which is still far from solved. AAP reported some years ago,  ”In a new record, Australians now owe more in household debt that the country’s entire economy earns in a year”

The world’s economy has been revved up to work on massive spending – continuously.  This is the NOW generation, ‘we must have it NOW.’  The crisis has been “solved” by Governments throwing a heap of largely borrowed money at the problem.  Of course, money is no longer gold and silver, which was its foundation, even 100 years ago.  It is fascinating to see the sense in which money is the “beast” – which people worship. We note that a replica (image) of this beast arises and this chapter which tells how harmful and painful sores (symbol of what?) came upon those who bore the mark of the beast and worshipped its image.” [16 v.2]

Zechariah’s chapter also describes Armageddon without using the word!   “Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations … the mount of Olives shall be split in two” [12 v.3,4]  A world shaking earthquake occurs, see Rev 16 v.18; “a great earthquake such as there has never been since man was on earth” – and the “day” will have come!

But then, says Zechariah, “the LORD will be King over all the earth … then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship in King, the LORD of Hosts …” [v.9,16]. We have read almost the same in Revelation, “Who will not fear O Lord and glorify your name? For you alone are holy.  All nations will come and worship you for your righteous acts have been revealed.” [15 v.4]

Blessed are those who are awake and ready for what God will cause to happen. {see 16 v.15]

“LOOK ON … HIM WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED” Christadelphian thoughts based on the daily readings for 28th Dec

“LOOK ON … HIM WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED”

First we note that there are no less than nine times the phrase “on that day” today occurs in just 15 verses in Zechariah Chapter 12 through to the first 2 verses of chapter 13. We note the prelude to these pronouncements, “Thus declares the LORD who stretched out the heavens and founded the earth and formed the spirit of man within him” [12 v.1].  These words fascinate us as a way to announce the character of God, a declaration of his absolute almightiness as the originator of all that exists.

It is the first “on that day” that has particularly captivated the attention of believers throughout our lifetime. “On that day” we read, “I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves.  And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.” [12 v.3]

Jerusalem was the centre of attention in the Middle East, attracting the attention of the whole world from when Israel became a nation again in 1948 after being “dead” since AD 70.

The USA tried hard to “lift” the “stone” to solve the problem the diplomatic headaches in earlier years: but made no real progress. The influences of Islamic countries have grown greater and it now seems clear that someday, maybe soon, an “explosion” will occur.  The next “on that day” is when God “will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness” [v.4]    Today men have invented a great variety of “vehicles” to replace the horse. They get around at great speed. What is this madness?  We suspect it means totally irrational behaviour, especially in the surrounding nations,  in a situation which suddenly gets totally out of control.

Now notice the declaration in the next verse. “The inhabitants of Jerusalem have strength through the LORD of hosts their God.”  We are strongly inclined to believe this happens because of diviner intervention when God pours out on “Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him they have pierced, they shall mourn …” [v.10]

This portrays the wonder of the return of Christ, with the Jews at last recognising their Messiah. But Ch. 13 v.8,9 appear to indicate they first experience a traumatic time when God will “refine them”.  There is then an incredible turnaround of events as “the LORD will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives” [14 v.4] which is where Jesus ascended from (Acts 1 v.9-12)  But also “on that day there shall be a fountain opened for … the inhabitants of Jerusalem to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness” [13 v.1,]

The most momentous climax possible – to human history is soon to happen. Will you be there on that day?

“ENDURANCE AND FAITH”

Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints” [Rev.13 v.10]

This statement in Revelation was true then – and it is just as true today, and it is almost certain to become even a guiding principle in the lives of earnest believers before God “shortens” [Matthew 24 v.22] life on earth by sending the Lord Jesus back here, otherwise no human beings would be left alive.

Honesty should compel all dedicated students of God’s word to admit that some things, maybe many things in the Bible are a “challenge” to understand and the history among those striving to be true believers is full of examples of mistakes made in trying to be specific in expounding prophecy, and time has proved them wrong.

That said though, it is clear from what is written that there is to be, and has been throughout history, a continuing battle between that which is true and right in relation to God and that which is a human perversion of that truth.  It was so in the time of Jesus and we read in several places how Jesus condemned the religious leaders for teaching their own traditions. [Matthew 15 v.3-6]  These are represented in Revelation as a dragon and a beast. We read of a beast that looks somewhat like a lamb [13 v.11] but when it opens its mouth it is clear it is not.

It is very much a lesson of life that one never judges simply by appearances!  This is why it is essential to read and absorb the teachings of the Bible for ourselves, especially the words of Jesus and the apostles.

In past Centuries, those represented by the symbols of the beast and the dragon, often persecuted those who followed the lamb and sometimes they became martyrs – as some of the first disciples eventually did. Revelation pictures this in some places.

Today, as well as seeing those who think Christ accepts them as his followers teaching things which Christ did not teach,  we also have to contend with human imaginations that we are just the highest form of animal life!  That all that exists has evolved by pure chance – an incredible accident – and there is no Creator!

As a result there is even greater immoral behaviour now – there is “no fear of God before their eyes” [Rom. 3 v.18].  So the call for “endurance and faith” goes out today more than ever.

“WE GIVE THANKS TO YOU LORD”

 

The Book of Revelation offers us a wondrous vision in today’s chapter, a vision to which nearly all the world is blind – as they ‘celebrate’ this day in human ways.  We read how there are loud voices in heaven saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever” [Ch.11 v.15].

The elders fall on their faces and worship saying, “We give thanks to you Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign.  The nations raged, but your wrath came and the time for the dead to be judged and for rewarding your servants the prophets and saints. And those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth” [v.17/18].

What a day of incredible thanksgiving this coming day will be, but notice it follows a time of the nations raging.

The present largely ‘empty’ human behaviour over the Christmas period will be seen for all its emptiness, much of it being really ungodly.  What are people giving thanks for today?  It is the passing ‘pleasure’ of the moment!   The children enjoy themselves and, thankfully, some are moved to think of those less fortunate and give some help to them.  That is good – as far as it goes.  Do any of the children learn anything real about Jesus?   It seems impossible to think so, but God knows.

It is interesting that only twice in the Bible is there any mention of celebrating birthdays – and both were those of bad men! [Genesis 40 v.20 – Pharaoh] and [Matthew 12 v.6 – Herod, when John the Baptist lost his head]

The heavenly celebration to come will be wondrous beyond our ability to imagine, but until that time arrives true believers celebrate, not their Lord’s birth, but his sacrifice and death – in the way he appointed [Luke 22 v.15-20], knowing there is to be a wondrous finale to that celebration  in the kingdom.

This wondrous event, called “the marriage supper of the Lamb” is also mentioned in Revelation [19 v.6-9] “Blessed are those who are invited” to that feast, that utterly wonderful celebration – and will, with all their heart “give thanks to you Lord.”    Let us live today so that we will receive an invitation.
