Ark5Continuing No. 3, THE ARK OF THE LORD GOD.

Revelation 5:5-14 gives an amazing picture of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God sitting upon the throne with ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands worshipping Him. They worship Him with a LOUD voice saying: “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, ‘Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever’” (Verses 12, 13).

He is the LORD OUR GOD and we must worship Him. He is seated at the right and of the Father on the ark throne in Heaven which symbolizes our salvation. This ark is also sprinkled with Jesus’ blood.

In 1 Kings 2:26 Solomon calls the ark, “The ark of the LORD GOD.” It is in the context of pronouncing judgment on Abiathar the priest who had conspired to make Adonijah king instead of Solomon. He didn’t put him to death at that time “because thou barest the ark of the LORD GOD,” but thrust him out from being priest. He was the last descendant of Eli to be priest because they did not respect the tabernacle and all that pertained to it, especially because it was the tabernacle containing the ark throne of the LORD GOD!

Eli’s sons did not respect the things of God. They kicked at the sacrifices of God’s altar. When God reprimanded Eli in 1 Samuel 2:29 He said: “Wherefore do you kick at MY sacrifice and MY offering which I have commanded in MY habitation, and honor your sons more than me, to make yourselves fat with the best of all the offerings of Israel MY people.” These things didn’t belong to Eli and his sons, but to God.

Through God’s amazing grace in Christ Jesus “He giveth us richly all things to enjoy” (2 Timothy 1:17). However, we must be careful to remember the words of Romans 11:36: “For OF HIM, and THROUGH HIM, and TO HIM, are all things: to WHOM BE GLORY FOREVER. Amen.”

Be encouraged.
