Exodus 32 –
The people continually need a strong leader. Someone who will lead them in the paths of righteousness for my Name’s sake. Not everyone will sit before Me and eat at my feet, though all are called to do so. Therefore, in mercy, I grant them Apostles, Prophets, Teachers and Pastors to direct them and guide them that my anger will not be kindled against them.
Don’t compromise your position in Me, for the people need the truth. They need the Word of God, not your pity, nor even your friendship per se.
They need a personal encounter with a living and personal GOD who loves them and desires them to be made whole. Don’t allow sin to reign in the camp, but destroy it by using my Word to judge it and uproot it.
