And when they came to Nacon’s threshing floor, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled and shook it. And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for touching the ark, and he died there by the ark of God.” 2 Samuel 6:6-7 AMP
When we trespass in an office which God did not authorize us to step into, we only invite casualties to ourselves. The Bible says: Uzzah died for touching the ark. His intentions were good, but was wrong in God’s Eyes. Most of the things that is gotten us into a lot of problems, is good intentions without God’s leading. We may be saying things against God’s authority for the sake of helping, but we ought to be careful because even that can bring problems to us. He (Uzzah) stepped into an office or place of authority which was meant for the priest only. In our time we trespass authority when we talk about ministers of God as if they are good for nothing. It’s like touching the ark of God and that eventually can cause of many issues in our life.
Saying, Touch not My anointed, and do My prophets no harm.” 1 Chronicles 16:22 AMP
Most of the problems some people face in their life is because they have used their mouth to talk in places which they are not suppose to. Especially against God’s authority placed in His Church to help lead His people. We always blame the devil for our problems, but sometimes is not always the devil. It’s us opening our mouth in the wrong place.
Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.” Proverbs 6:2 KJV
We should learn to watch our mouth when it comes to God’s secret institutes that He placed in His Church as His providence for His people in Jesus Christ mighty Name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. I repent for speaking against your authority placed in Your Church and also refusing to submit to it. Help me keep the door of my mouth. So that I may only use it in the right way to be a blessing to Your fivefold office instituted in the Church. In Jesus Christ mighty Name, Amen.
