“Glory to the Precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ”
Proverbs 16: 33
The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
We, the bride, the church should be as those who cause contentions to cease by the Lord among the mighty.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the portion of the Bible that we meditated upon in the past days, we meditated that for us, the bride, the church Christ is manifested as our city of refuge.
Next what we are meditating upon is that 1 Chronicles 6: 61 – 81 To the rest of the family of the tribe of the Kohathites they gave by lot ten cities from half the tribe of Manasseh.
And to the sons of Gershon, throughout their families, they gave thirteen cities from the tribe of Issachar, from the tribe of Asher, from the tribe of Naphtali, and from the tribe of Manasseh in Bashan.
To the sons of Merari, throughout their families, they gave twelve cities from the tribe of Reuben, from the tribe of Gad, and from the tribe of Zebulun.
So the children of Israel gave these cities with their common-lands to the Levites.
And they gave by lot from the tribe of the children of Judah, from the tribe of the children of Simeon, and from the tribe of the children of Benjamin these cities which are called by their names.
Now some of the families of the sons of Kohath were given cities as their territory from the tribe of Ephraim.
And they gave them one of the cities of refuge, Shechem with its common-lands, in the mountains of Ephraim, also Gezer with its common-lands,
Jokmeam with its common-lands, Beth Horon with its common-lands,
Aijalon with its common-lands, and Gath Rimmon with its common-lands.
And from the half-tribe of Manasseh: Aner with its common-lands and Bileam with its common-lands, for the rest of the family of the sons of Kohath.
From the family of the half-tribe of Manasseh the sons of Gershon were given Golan in Bashan with its common-lands and Ashtaroth with its common-lands.
And from the tribe of Issachar: Kedesh with its common-lands, Daberath with its common-lands,
Ramoth with its common-lands, and Anem with its common-lands.
And from the tribe of Asher: Mashal with its common-lands, Abdon with its common-lands,
Hukok with its common-lands, and Rehob with its common-lands.
And from the tribe of Naphtali: Kedesh in Galilee with its common-lands, Hammon with its common-lands, and Kirjathaim with its common-lands.
From the tribe of Zebulun the rest of the children of Merari were given Rimmon with its common-lands and Tabor with its common-lands.
And on the other side of the Jordan, across from Jericho, on the east side of the Jordan, they were given from the tribe of Reuben: Bezer in the wilderness with its common-lands, Jahzah with its common-lands,
Kedemoth with its common-lands, and Mephaath with its common-lands.
And from the tribe of Gad: Ramoth in Gilead with its common-lands, Mahanaim with its common-lands,
Heshbon with its common-lands, and Jazer with its common-lands.
In the above-mentioned verses, for the sons of each generation according to the tribes’ cities and common land were given according to the lot.
My dear people, the people who do not come into the church and those who do not know about salvation and are living in this manner due to the deeds of Satan they are stuck and involved in many difficulties and such people before they ruin themselves we, the people who have been chosen by the Lord should proclaim salvation and earn them for the Lord and bring them into the church. Regarding this only the Lord is saying that casting lots causes contentions to cease and keeps the mighty apart. That is why the above-mentioned verses given to us by the Lord is a pattern for us. In this manner, let us submit ourselves to the Lord.
Let us pray. May the Lord bless you all abundantly.
