Through the Bible Day by Day
The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance.
THE PROPHET WHO WAS TO COME
Those that serve the altar may live by the altar. Let us not forget the needs of those who serve us in holy things. It is a blessed thing when an individual desires “the place that the Lord chooses.” Let us be true to the inner prompting, at whatever cost. We shall be fully repaid. When Peter loaned his boat Jesus returned it, filled with fish!
We are to be “perfect with the Lord”-i.e., we are not knowingly to permit things that hurt or grieve His Holy Spirit. If the question should arise, how we are to know God’s way, we must take our question to the true Prophet. See Act_3:22; Act_7:37. He can answer our hard question; but we are strictly forbidden to go to crystal-gazers, palmists, fortune-tellers, and those who profess to read the future. How serious is their fault who refuse Him! Compare Deu_18:19 with Heb_10:28-29. Let thy Urim and Thummim be with the Holy One! 1Sa_23:11-12; 1Sa_30:7-8.
