Where we shall meet with Him

By Muoka Lazarus

Matthew 28:10 says, “Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.”

Exodus 19:9-15 says, “And the Lord said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever…”

Let us consider the above topic “Where We Shall Meet With Him.” In the Bible days God usually appoint a special place to meet with his people. Severally, it was in the Mountains or any specially appointed place. In the Bible days, it could be in the temple or in special revival meetings. And where he meets with them the result will be blessings of all kinds

Matthew 28:10 says, “Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.”

This time around the Lord told his disciples, you go into Galilee, ”there you shall see me”. So take note, in the first place, God creat-ed us for his pleasure and delight in taking pleasure in us. If you look at Rev. 4:11 it says, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

From the first man and woman he created, he proved that he enjoys taking pleasure in his creature. If you look at Genesis, it was clearly shown that from time to time he meets with Adam and Eve whom he created in order to fellowship or have communion with them.

Genesis 3:7-11 says, “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

The point is that at this time, God came to have fellowship with Adam and Eve, but something happened, they hid themselves because they have sinned against God and were no longer worthy to stand before God. In most cases satan usually use sin to DESTROY this wonderful and God’s pleasur-able communion as we have seen. But God in his infinite mercy and love for man will always arrange for a meeting or a special place to meet with man as he did to Adam and Eve when he created them.

However, satan used sin to hinder, to separate us, to destroy the fellowship, the communion with God. God in his love and mercy seeks for this communion to meet with his people, to work on them, to renew them, to receive them and to take pleasure in them. As Christians we must not allow that (sin) especially, this time that the coming of Jesus is near, this time that the end is drawing closer and closer and this time that we have something to do with the Lord. We must not allow sin to hinder us.

In this present time the Lord God has been meeting with his people on a daily basis. Many of us give testimonies of what God has been doing for us and I am assuring you that same God who has brought us here today will work on us and we shall have testimonies and shall go home rejoicing in Jesus name. Also in our crusade, in our retreats we can testify to the fact that God moves in our midst.

When we shall be with him in his kingdom and be with him forever and ever all our tears and sorrows, everything shall be wiped away forever. So my brothers and sisters, I don’t know what you are passing through now. If you are a Christian, born again, I am assuring you that one day all those sorrows you shall see them no more; all the pains, and all those problems, the Lord shall wipe them away forever in Jesus name.

Note that whatever you are passing through now; persecut-ion, hunger, trial, poverty, just endure, keep moving forward, when the day, that last day comes, when we shall drop this body. We shall go into his kingdom and be with him forever and ever. Note verse 27 “And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth…” if you want to make heaven, you want to enter into the kingdom of God, take heed that nothing defiles you.

You need to really examine your life. If you are living in sin, sin will destroy that relationship, cut you off from God, sin will hinder God from taking pleasure in you now and eternity. You must do some-thing now. Nobody enters into eternal relationship with God in a state of defilement, abomination and unrighteousness.

Check up and ensure that nothing is standing between you and God because we do not know when the Lord is coming, make sure you don’t allow sin because sin will keep you away from God and God will never take pleasure in the life of a sinner. While others are testifying of God’s goodness, you will never have testimony at all.

This is never the will of God for you. In this present time people hide from where the truth is being preached because they cannot stand the presence of the true God because the truth will exposes their evil. This was why God told Moses in the Bible days and even Joshua to sanctify the children of Israel as a requisite to meeting with God in Mount Sinai. If they must see God and be blessed by God or hear God, let them ensure that nothing is standing between them and God.

This time around the Lord is say-ing to you, sanctify yourself that he might meet you and bless you and you will come back rejoicing in Jesus name. Jesus told his disciples go to Galilee there he will meet with them. Now bro-thers and sisters, the point is that you must ensure that nothing is standing between you and God.

As many as have not received Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal saviour or those that have backslidden, what you need to do is repent now and give your life to Christ. Remember a sinner is not a Christian and a Christian is not a sinner.

If you continue in sin the Bible says you are of the devil. If you are living in sin and you say you are born again, you are a liar. If you are a child of God, you will receive the Spirit of Christ, and that Spirit can never allow you to continue in sin.

If you want to stop sinning and be free from all the works of darkness, you must receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal saviour. And as you do that, your life will change and it shall be well with you.
