“Glory to the Precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ”
Psalms 92: 13
Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
We, the bride, the church should be as the workers in the church of God.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the portion of the Bible that we meditated upon in the past days, we meditated that we, the bride, the church should safeguard ourselves so that we are not put in captivity.
Next what we are meditating upon is that 1 Chronicles 6: 16 – 32 The sons of Levi were Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
These are the names of the sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei.
The sons of Kohath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel.
The sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi. Now these are the families of the Levites according to their fathers:
Of Gershon were Libni his son, Jahath his son, Zimmah his son,
Joah his son, Iddo his son, Zerah his son, and Jeatherai his son.
The sons of Kohath were Amminadab his son, Korah his son, Assir his son,
Elkanah his son, Ebiasaph his son, Assir his son,
Tahath his son, Uriel his son, Uzziah his son, and Shaul his son.
The sons of Elkanah were Amasai and Ahimoth.
As for Elkanah, the sons of Elkanah were Zophai his son, Nahath his son,
Eliab his son, Jeroham his son, and Elkanah his son.
The sons of Samuel were Joel the firstborn, and Abijah the second.
The sons of Merari were Mahli, Libni his son, Shimei his son, Uzzah his son,
Shimea his son, Haggiah his son, and Asaiah his son.
Now these are the men whom David appointed over the service of song in the house of the Lord, after the ark came to rest.
They were ministering with music before the dwelling place of the tabernacle of meeting, until Solomon had built the house of the Lord in Jerusalem, and they served in their office according to their order.
In the above-mentioned verses, sons of Levi Gershon, Kohath, and Merari their generations are being given here. Now these are the men whom David appointed over the service of song in the house of the Lord, after the ark came to rest. They were ministering with music before the dwelling place of the tabernacle of meeting, until Solomon had built the house of the Lord in Jerusalem, and they served in their office according to their order. Also, in 1 Chronicles 6: 33 – 47 And these are the ones who ministered with their sons: Of the sons of the Kohathites were Heman the singer, the son of Joel, the son of Samuel,
the son of Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Eliel, the son of Toah,
the son of Zuph, the son of Elkanah, the son of Mahath, the son of Amasai,
the son of Elkanah, the son of Joel, the son of Azariah, the son of Zephaniah,
the son of Tahath, the son of Assir, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah,
the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, the son of Israel.
And his brother Asaph, who stood at his right hand, was Asaph the son of Berachiah, the son of Shimea,
the son of Michael, the son of Baaseiah, the son of Malchijah,
the son of Ethni, the son of Zerah, the son of Adaiah,
the son of Ethan, the son of Zimmah, the son of Shimei,
the son of Jahath, the son of Gershon, the son of Levi.
Their brethren, the sons of Merari, on the left hand, were Ethan the son of Kishi, the son of Abdi, the son of Malluch,
the son of Hashabiah, the son of Amaziah, the son of Hilkiah,
the son of Amzi, the son of Bani, the son of Shamer,
the son of Mahli, the son of Mushi, the son of Merari, the son of Levi.
All the above-mentioned are the generations of Levi. And their brethren, the Levites, were appointed to every kind of service of the tabernacle of the house of God. But Aaron and his sons offered sacrifices on the altar of burnt offering and on the altar of incense, for all the work of the Most Holy Place, and to make atonement for Israel, according to all that Moses the servant of God had commanded.
My dear people, in the above-mentioned verses the Lord is showing Christ as a pattern, and he is using the sons of Levi for the singing work and for all the work in the Holy place and also for the atonement of sin along with a pattern of Christ he is explaining it. Therefore, if we will make Christ as our own then all the work according to the Lord, we must do without being weary and let us submit ourselves to do in this manner.
Let us pray. May the Lord bless you all abundantly.
