THE CENSUS AND THE PLAGUE

THE CENSUS AND THE PLAGUE

I read in the Scriptures this morning that God wanted to punish Israel so He moved David to do a Census. The Census was illegal so then He could send a plague to punish them.

The plague was actually the most merciful form of punishment, in comparison to 7 years famine or 3 months of war.

The plague was ended early by a sacrificial offering by King David.

This is one of David’s most famous statements:
“I WILL NOT OFFER UNTO THE LORD MY GOD OF THAT WHICH COST ME NOTHING.”

Is it a coincidence that we are being told to stay home for a CENSUS and a PESTILENCE?

Are you giving YAH a sacrificial offering?
– Your TIME in prayer and worship?
– Your ENERGY in obedience and in fasting?
– Your FINANCES in tithing and almsgiving?

Sinful leadership comes for sinful People!

GIVE GOD SOMETHING THAT COSTS YOU SOMETHING!
