Now in case you haven’t read it, here is my post on what this year is all about: 2012-The Year of Complete Governance and Peace It opens in a new tab/window so you can still keep track of what you read here. I would encourage you to read that post any time soon to give you a good perspective on how to conduct your life. As we continue in the last half of the year, we want to make it the best one. I personally believe that out of all the posts I have put together this year, this current one and the one I highlighted are the most Valuable and Vital ones because they express God’s heart since He is a God of order (Genesis 1; Exodus 39-40; 1 Corinthians 12:12; Proverbs 8:22-31; Psalm 104:24-25). There are numerous others like Jethro counseling Moses (Exodus 18:17-23), and also the way Solomon built the temple (1 Kings 6:1-14; 2 Chronicles 3)
Now watch this and think about everything you hear. I will put some notes about the video in case you cannot see it:
God is a God of Order
Take time to think about that. We hear or read something like that so many times that we (may possibly, indirectly) pass it off as a cliché. Those words don’t resonate within our hearts. We don’t grasp the revelation behind God as a Man of Order. Think about Revelations 5:11 and read Chapter 4. What about Ezekiel 1 where the prophet describes what he sees? The other term for it is Cherubic Chariot so whenever you read or hear the term cherubim (in the whole Bible) think about a chariot because that’s (exactly) what it is!
Dr Mike Murdock mentioned a few things in the video:
Government is about order
Law is about order
The 5 rewards of order:
1) Safety- traffic lights
2) Beauty- when there is symmetry (uniformity, equality, consistency) there is beauty
4) Prosperity- both in wealth and well being (Deut 8:18; Ecc 11: 1; Joshua 1:8; Psalm 1:2-3; 3 John 1:2)
NB: Let every investment of every day be a step closer towards order. Order is God’s only obsession. Let it be our only obsession too!
“Order and simplification are the first steps toward the mastery of a subject.”- Thomas Mann
“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.”- Flaubert
“Order is Heaven’s first law” – Alexander pope
1 Corinthians 14:40
But all things should be done with regard to decency and propriety and in an orderly fashion.
