THE GOLDEN CALF

Exodus 32:4

There’s always a loneliness, an emptiness in the heart of man that can only be filled by a divine power. A higher power. Every religion, cult and spiritual organisation seeks to feel this void by introducing something supernatural.

In the bible when Moses went for forty days and forty nights on the mountain, the emptiness descended upon the people and they lost faith in an ‘ unseen God’, the “UNKNOWN POWER” . They had waited upon this same God for more than four centuries yet this emptiness wont allow them to wait for forty days!!!! They desired a visible power and a familiar expression of faith. This might have been as a result of their stay in Egypt.

Slavery and Monuments

Slavery had subconsciously taught them a “way” . Slavery has a way of rubbing on us its filth. Man has been a slave to sin ( Romans 6:6) since the fall of man in Genesis 3 to a point where they are only familiar with building monuments. Monuments and representations of our ideas and ideologies. Man are so married to them that they can’t join any congregation unless they are allowed to carry

these monuments into the church! Political monuments, sociocultural monuments. The pursuit of riches is the greatest folly of man today ,and its monuments are all over.

Their Gold was used to build their Idol.

The world will not use its own resources to build your idol! They will use what you have. Your fears, greed, desires to customise an idol that you will quickly sigh “I am fulfilled at long last!!”

This same mistake they made when they demanded a King of flesh and blood like other nations. Unfortunately this weakness has shadowed man till today. Man has this good emptiness in him that desires a god. That desires wholeness. Sadly culture has taught us how to seek for wholeness. Seeking by what we can interact with using the 5 senses. Some are merely sensational yet truly others are at a spiritual level. Not the right spirit.

GOD BACK TO THE CREATOR

THE CREATOR knows exactly what his creation needs. So man’s pursuit for pleasure, happiness, love, fulfilment and god will always be futile unless they ask He who has their blueprint.
The Israelites trusted upon their own feeling to create a visible God and thus broke the law of God!

The object of fulfilment can never be the source of the fulfilment.

Meaning love can not be the source of love. God is love, he can give love.

Remove the golden calf. Embrace God.
We can SEE GOD
Faith makes us see God in everything around us , not in form but His power in us, with us , through us and around us. Only Faith !!!
Patience is needed in us even as it was needed in those Israelites who created the abominable calf and worshiped it. Today, as we wait for Jesus who ascended to the father, just as Moses ascended, we should not create idols, ideals or even conveniences to replace God!

These should not replace God
Riches should not replace God, Pleasure should not replace God, people should not replace God. Science should not Replace God. Ideals like Atheism should not replace God. Witchcraft should not replace God. In God we find life. We find wholeness
Simply because the punishment of the wicked has delayed men should not fall into sin. This is indicative of the lack of integrity. Jesus overcame and so can we.

THE RELIGIOUS PRISONS

If we stays long in religion, zealously following man’s idea of ideal worship we miss a good chance to actually fellowship with the Holy Spirit, this in turn rebuilds a barrier which Jesus came to break so that there could be freedom in worship. The barrier of enmity was done away with so that Christians could have a PERSONAL relationship with Our Father. On one hand this religious Barriers are of full of Condemning graffiti to those who don’t live up to their man-made doctrines or rules, and on the other hand, proclamation of self righteousness. For us to hold on to the end, so that when Christ comes he finds a pure church, the remnant must fully rely on the Holy Spirit.

THE LIE THAT, WE, CHRISTIANS TELL OURSELVES.
“It happens only in the “other” churches.” that’s the lie every Christian would be comfortable with. We are reminded to examine ourselves in 2 Corinthians 13:5 as to whether we are still in the faith. If we fall into the religious prisons of Laws which indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self imposed religion, we can and will be cheated out of our reward (eternal life)

BUT TRUTH is, it’s everywhere! In all congregations, even in the conventional pentecostal mega and mini churches in cities and villages. Religious zealots are in everywhere. As long as saints lives in this denial, it will not be able to bring everyone to a level where they can experience worship freedom. There is no supper Christian, we must all Examine ourselves. It’s written “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.

THIS IS WHAT WE HEAR.. .
Super Tithers, Superior Prayer Warriors, Mightiest man of God, those who speak churchy and dress churchy and behave churchy than the other? Christianity is not defined solely by the outward display of holiness, you must be known by the fruits you bear.

As much as God rewards our faithfulness and Diligence, we must keep at heart what was told Zerubbabel in Zachariah 4:6,that it’s “not by power nor by might but by My Spirit” says the LORD OF HOSTS. Therefore whether we are vegans, meat eaters or bone crushers we all have the same titles (Children /Sons of God. ) and God is able make even the weak stand.

SELF IMPOSED RELIGION is the WORST PRISON, be set free by the Grace freely provided by Christ.

Jesus did not die to form RELIGIONS, He died to Restore a RELATIONSHIP.

THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

Moses (Numbers 14:12) was given an opportunity to restart the tribe of Israel but he turned it down for the Love of the people.

David would have stayed at his palace and let the angel destroy the city and the people (2 Samuel 24:17) but he Chose to intercede and sacrifice Himself.

Solomon was given an opportunity to ask anything from the Creator of all things but he chose wisdom, what for?to lead the people of God.

Here is the funniest irony…

The Devil (Creature) gave Jesus (the Creator ) the opportunity to rule the world, to be wealthy n to create provision (the bread) but turned it down that HE might Finish His Fathers business (to save the world).

Today we’ve all been given an opportunity, what are we doing with it. Be selfless in your vision as a leader and think about the people, the ailing world around us.

To sacrifice and plant a seed of selfless LOVE, will grow into a forest of selfless LOVE. Even just a small garden of love.

We all have the opportunity ULTIMATE SACRIFICE. Use it this Easter.
