And Micah consecrated the Levite; and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah.
Wow… Israel had reached a very deplorable state now. The bible i read captioned it, ‘A state of Anarchy,’ I couldn’t agree less. God’s eople did whatever they wanted though they knew very well that what they did were all wrong.
People had shrines in their homes, and as if that wasn’t enough, self-acclaimed Levites were now serving as priests in these shrines. Now that’s a very very low point.
When sin rules in our lives and we allow it to have its hold, it only gives birth to more sin and the stench we produce is repulsive to God enough to let Him look away.
Then we even sink deeper and deeper in our filth and He begins to feel nauseous even when He hears our name.
For those of us who have to this point of total disregard for God in our lives we really need to realize that the accuser is very pleased with this state of ours and knows we are only sitting on a time-bomb… It’s only a matter of time, then…kaboooooommmm!!!
Live wisely dear one.
Have a blessed day.
