TOUCH NOT MY ANOINTED Numbers 12:1-15
“I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter;” (Matthew 12:36)
The Lord in 1 Chronicles 16:22 commanded. “Touch not My anointed.” As it is today, so it was in the time of the Lord Jesus Christ. Several people spoke out against Him, and some even accused Him of casting out demons by Beelzebub, the prince of demons. The Lord said in Matthew 12:36: “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of Judgment.” Speaking against the Lord’s ministers and their spirit – motivated deeds is a typical way of touching the Lord’s anointed. Beloved, it is idle talk when you attribute an act of Holy Spirit in a man of God to the power of familiar spirits or charms and rituals of the occult, and this is punishable on the Day of judgment. Never join a multitude to say terrible things against a minister of God when you are not very sure that what they are saying about him or her is true. Take heed to these instructions of God in (Exodus 23:2 “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to declare after many to wrest judgment.” Today’s Bible reading narrates how Moses’ two siblings Mariam and Aaron, spoke out against him because of the Ethiopian woman he had married. Mariam and Aaron were just being jealous and mischievous. God saw through their motives, and He decided to put them in their place and punish them. Mariam became leprous. Beloved, watch your tongue and stop any move that is detrimental to the assignment given to an anointed man or woman of God.
PRAYER LINE: Father, please forgive me in any way I have touched Your anointed with my words, actions or inaction. (O.H)
Great blessings are often followed by great temptations.
