Exodus 24:16 Even If

Exodus 24:16 (KJV)
And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.

Based on this passage, and many others like it, I have to wonder if most of today’s Christians, including preachers, ever really hear from heaven. After God had already prepared Israel to hear from Him, God’s glory rested on the mountain for six days. Six days Moses waited before God called him. And then Moses was on the mountain with God forty days and forty nights. 

  • That long, Moses communed with God to get the message. 
  • That long, and the people transgressed. 

How many preachers never get God’s message because they believe it’s up to them to keep the people from sinning?

Sin is never the right action. But neither is haste. People fed shallow doctrine but forced to conform to church behavior are no better off than people who have heard no truth. It is much better to get the message directly from God and deliver it to those prepared to listen to it, even if it is a fewer number. 

To my readers:
First of all, thank you! It is a great joy to me to know you read the thoughts and lessons God has given me in His word. Secondly, I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to leave comments.
