II Chronicles 35:1-4 records the Passover King Josiah celebrated. Among other decisions, he ordered the return of the sacred ark to its original and rightful place in the Holy of Holies. Whether it had been removed to protect it from Manasseh or Amon, or removed by the wicked Manasseh, is uncertain. At the time of Josiah’s reformation it continued to be mobile on the priests’ shoulders.
A very bad example of the nation’s fluctuating morality. God demanded its permanent location in the Holy of Holies, to keep it from being a common sight and to remain in seclusion as a symbol of God’s continuous, unchanging sovereignty. Josiah demanded its permanent re-installation. It needed to remain in one place since God hadn’t moved and never would.
That’s a powerful warning to American Christians. We’re living in a society that thinks God has moved, is moving and will never again be the traditional God of the Bible. So the homosexuals carry him around, saying, “God now has a new sexual normal.” The live-ins, who shun marriage, carry him around, saying “God considers fornicating better than marriage.” The ecumenicals carry him around, saying “All religions are equal and none is superior.”
What they’re all saying is, “This is what God has become, and Christians need to adapt.”
WRONG. Viciously, sinfully, satanically wrong. Josiah put the ark back where it belonged because God had never changed. Christians must now ACT on this eternal truth. Preachers must again preach God’s word strongly, warning any doubters of God’s Truth, Christ’s Deity, the Church’s relevance and Judgment to come, with Christ as the Sole Judge. God hasn’t changed, his standards remain the same and his truth stands unchallengeable. Those who think he’s malleable will lose their souls. He’s the Eternal God in Christ. – End Part IV –
