1. Reminder about precepts

In the previous post we discovered that the precepts of God are His commands and charges given to accomplish His will and purpose in the earth.  According to Isaiah 28: 9, the precepts of the Lord are His knowledge and doctrines or teachings.

We also learnt that God commands blessings on those who obey His precepts. However, nations can err from the precepts of the Lord God Almighty when the Priests and Prophets become intoxicated with the wine of  the world system.

One modern-day example of the intoxication. Can you tell me why Prophets are selling prophesies to the people who need instruction for survival?  God will require the blood of the victims of their omission to “freely give” in that Day of Judgment.

There are many more examples.

2. A precept is the establishment of  God’s divine order in the earth

When He reveals His Precepts or knowledge and doctrine into the earth realm, God brings the order of heaven into earth.  This blesses the citizens of  earth with the knowledge of how to live to please God. God also commands blessings upon those who diligently keep His Word. However,  lack of order, as in the case of  King Hezekiah can lead to infirmity and death:

In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live (2 Kings 20: 1).

3. A precept is a divine appointment to a position of authority

This revelation in the Holy Scripture is very interesting and occurs in two texts.    The Word of  the Lord  regarding David’s appointment and anointing as King in place of Saul was sent into the earth realm in the form of a command to Prophet Samuel.

This appointment or command from God was subsequently acknowledged by Abigail and by David himself. Furthermore, God confirmed through events that David had been appointed King. By the time of Saul’s death, it was a “no brainer” as far as the people were concerned and they expedited the process of  crowning David as King.

The lesson is that churches should stop voting people into positions and seek God’s divine appointment for leadership:

And it shall come to pass, when the LORD shall have done to my lord according to all the good that he hath spoken concerning thee, and shall have appointed thee ruler over Israel (1 Sam 25: 30).

And David said unto Michal, [It was] before the LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel: therefore will I play before the LORD (2 Sam 6: 21).

4. Angelic protection is  a precept/command of  God

 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways (Psalm 91: 11).

5. A precept of God is a command to overturn the plans of  the ungodly against the righteous

And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, The counsel of Hushai the Archite [is] better than the counsel of Ahithophel. For the LORD had appointed  to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, to the intent that the LORD might bring evil upon Absalom.   (2 Samuel 17: 14)

Blessings and more to come!
