Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 31 - Evening

"Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, 
then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession.Although the whole earth is mine,
you will be for me a kingdom of priests 
and a holy nation.’ 
These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”

-Exodus 19:5-6

A Nation of Priests Set Apart for the Lord


Israel had been chosen to be partners in a covenant with the Lord. Now, they had the opportunity to be set in an honorable and distinguished position among the nations as a “treasured” nation possessed by the Lord himself. But, Israel would have to be willing to:

  1. Fully obey the Lord
  2. Keep their side of the Covenant (the berit, or the “legal contract” and “binding agreement”)

Obedience to the Lord and fulfillment of their covenant obligations would secure for them the distinction of being a kingdom of priests and a holy nation set apart for God. The opportunity was there for Israel because this was the Lord's purpose for them in his plan.

As a “kingdom of priests” each Israelite would have direct access to God to mediate on behalf of himself and others before the throne of God, but also, each Israelite would be the Lord’s representative on earth and would speak for the Lord and teach others about the Lord and his ways (presumably, teach people from the other nations, since everyone in Israel would already be a priest).

As “a holy nation” Israel would be entirely set apart for service to and for the Lord. The word “holy” means “set apart.” Israel would be “set apart” from the other nations to serve God. And, because of this, they would need to live in such a way that their lives and their culture indicated they had been “set apart,” or to show that they were “holy.” So, as a holy nation, they would have to live in a holy way.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"God's intention with the cycles of discipline is to draw people back to himself."
- Galyn Wiemers

Something to Ponder??

D.L. Moody (1837-1899) added these things that had never been used before to the revivalist strategies:
1) Asked sinners to stand up at the end of a message
to be led in the
“sinner’s prayer”
for salvation.
2) Door-to-door witnessing
3) Advertised evangelistic meetings
4) Moody also made Absolom B. Earle’s concept of the “decision card” a
standard practice

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Rhema (Gr) – Word Eng) - rhema is Greek word that means “spoken,” “word,” “that which has been uttered by the living voice,” “the declaration of one’s mind into words,” and “utterance.”
Jesus uses this word in his quote in Matthew 4:4, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every rhema that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” Rhema is used 67x including 17x in Luke and 13 x in Acts (by Luke) and 12x by John in his Gospel. The writer of Hebrews uses it 4x (1:3; 6:5; 11:3 and 12:19) including, “the universe was formed at God’s command (rhema).” (Heb. 11:3)

  The "Way of the Philistines" referred to in Exodus 13:17 is said to be too dangerous for Moses to use during the Exodus. Exodus says that Israel would surely have faced war and turned back. The Egyptian Temple at Karnak depicts the "Way of the Philistines" called by the Egyptians as "The Way of Horus." The wall relief shows details of this map which include eleven Egyptian fortresses defending the route and the Egyptian border with Canaan. If Moses had used this route he would have had to fight his way out of Egypt. So, instead, God led them into the wilderness through the Red Sea.
Confession to Action   Facts and Information

As a believer in Jesus Christ I have been included in the body of Christ, which is his church, to be
a royal priesthood and a holy nation. (First Peter 2:9)
Do I represent the Lord to others? Do I intercede for others before the Lord?
Is my life set apart for service to the Lord? Do I live in such a way as to indicate that I am set apart?

  "Wisdom’s instruction is to fear the Lord,
    and humility comes before honor."
- Proverbs 15:33
