In that day every pot with be holy
Zachariah 14:21 -
Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.
In the Bible the Hebrew word 'Yowm' translated as 'day' actually means a period of time not just a 24hr period.
The Lord id saying at the end every pot will be holy and those who do not know Lord will do so from them. The Lord also says that there will be no Canaanite in the House of the Lord of hosts.
Do we know of any Canaanite existing now, so is it that this prophesy will not be fulfilled?
The word 'Canaanite' comes from the root meaning 'lowland'. It refers to spiritual person not earthly person. When God promised the generations of Abraham the land of the Canaanites it did not truly refer to the earthly land. Abraham hardly entered this land yet he was please when he slept.
The land promised to the generations of Abraham was the Heavenly place previously occupied by the fallen angels. The word pot used here refers to people not earthen vessels.
When the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in one of the scrolls was written the best place to keep the scriptures is earthen vessels anointed with oil until the day of (second) coming of Jesus Christ. Paul in his letters states we are the earthen vessels.
We become holy when we have the Word of God living in us.
Just a few days back a large part of our team which is organizing the Blazing Youth Revival at Daund near Pune went for a site visit by train. Each one of the team is a worker in the Lord's vineyard. They are leaders of churches or ministries or at the back-end supporting and building churches. All these Men and Women of God were humbled when a hawker selling wares on the train came and shared his testimony with us. We could see the awesome glory of God in his life. The only reason was that he had made the Word his life and not part of his life.
All of us do not see the awesome glory of God because we have made Lord a part of our life not our lives. We give a portion of our time and all that we have. We limit the Lord in our lives. It is only when we give the complete of us to the Lord will we see the glory of God fill our lives and we become holy vessels unto the Lord and people will know the Lord when they see us, like they did when they saw Jesus.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You made us of your image but sin destroyed this image in us. Lord, You came as man and by your Spirit You made way for man to get back your image in us. Help us Lord to experience your glory completely overwhelming us. Let the people around us who do not know You see You in us and experience your power and beauty through us...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
2 Corinthians 4:7-10
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves;
8 we are pressed on every side, yet not straitened; perplexed, yet not unto despair;
9 pursued, yet not forsaken; smitten down, yet not destroyed;
10 always bearing about in the body the dying of Jesus, that the life also of Jesus may be manifested in our body.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
