In the bible we see many holy vessels and artifacts that God instructed the people of Israel to make. But none of these were as special and important as the Ark of the Covenant.
The Ark of the Covenant is not just a “golden box”… it was carefully constructed according to God’s directions and held inside of it the mana, the rod of Aaron and the tablets of the 10 Commandments. The Ark bore the Presence of God and represents God’s glory. The Ark represents God Himself. The enemies of God’s people fled before the Ark. They feared the Ark. The walls of Jericho also fell down before the Ark. The Jordan River opened and gave way for the Israelites to pass through when the priest stepped foot into the water bearing the Ark. Many many miracles took place when the Ark was present. And it is no different today.
This Sunday we will have a great event here in the U.S. The Ark of the Covenant is coming and will enter inside of our Cathedral of Faith in Houston Texas.
When the Ark enters the church this Sunday, the same miracles will take place of the past. You will see the glory of God. The “walls” that have been blocking your life shall fall down. The “rivers” that have been standing in your way shall be opened. This event will be life-changing.
But what you must learn and apply even long after the event has passed is that, when the Ark went before them, they conquered… in the same way, when God goes before you, you will conquer. But if you put anything else in first place in your life, you will be defeated.
Put God in front of you, give Him your entire life, and watch the ways open like the Jordan River.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
