Friday Bulletin13: INTIMACY WITH GOD 3


And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God. And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man have any matters to do, let him come unto them. Exodus 24:13-14 KJV.

Of all Israel only Moses and Joshua qualified to ascend to this level.
Joshua qualified because

As soon as the people saw the pillar of cloud at the door of the Tent, they would bow down. The LORD would speak with Moses face-to-face, just as someone speaks with a friend. Then Moses would return to the camp. But the young man who was his helper, Joshua son of Nun, stayed in the Tent. Exodus 33:10-11 GNB.

All the people saw the pillar and worshiped God. Some of us we see what god is doing and we worship, revere, admire, respect, adore, hold in the highest regard, be in awe of God, … Still we will not want to pay the price.

Joshua never departed from the house of the Lord he had a closer relationship with God than the others. We need to love the LORD and to stay closer. Reading the bible will take us closer to God.

One thing we can learn from Joshua is that he desired to be closer and God made Him to be different. He saw something that all the people did not see. May God open your eyes to see the wonderful things that are in his law and the beauty of dwelling in His presence.

The Jews when they pray they cover their heads and this also covers their faces this is to create a tabernacle so that you can concentrate on god alone. May you create your own tabernacle.
Ways to create your own tabernacle.
  1. Have a set time for you to be alone with God - Devotion time. I like the word devotion because it means: loyalty, dedication, commitment, affection, fondness. That is a time you will be intimate with God.
  2. Regular time to be with God. May you have a regular time to read the bible and to pray to God.

The Shekinah glory rested in this place and Joshua could not come out of this place. May God visit you as you commune with Him may His word become as sweet as honey in your mouth. Glory be to God.

God Bless you
