#ALPHATALK: BRING THE ARK HOME

BRING THE ARK HOME
TEXT: 2 SAMUEL 6:9-12

Today, EVANG. DAVID OFURUM teaches:

The Ark of the Covenant in the Old Testament was a representation of God’s presence among the Israelites. It’s presence brought blessings such as properity, victory in warfare & protection to the Isrealites. The Ark would harm anyone handling it contrary to God’s covenant with His people but bless anyone handling it according to the covenant.

Obededom was a proselyte (convert) jew. Though not originally a jew or a levite, he understood the workings of the Covenant of God with His people & taught same to his family. That made all the difference between him & Uzzah, a levite, whom the Ark killed before David sent it to Obededom’s house out of fear. The same Ark that killed Uzzah blessed Obededom & his entire family.

In our day in the New Testament, how do we bring God’s Ark (presence) to our home & enjoy the blessings it brings just as Obededom did?

1. Make God’s principles your family’s foundation (Mat. 7:24-25).

2. Raise a daily family altar to God (Acts 5:42).

3. Ensure all family members are committed in church (Acts 10:1-2).

May God bless your home with His presence in Jesus’ name.
