Notice the phrase “the knowledge of the holy”. Do you know the holy? Do you know the sacred? The ability to distinguish between the holy and the common is understanding, not smartness.
When a man says he won’t pay tithe, he doesn’t know “the holy.” It is proof of a lack of understanding. Holy things are not what men love or hate, but what God calls “holy”. What God says are His, things that God identifies with, are sacred; they are not to be violated or treated anyhow.
When a man calls his pastor common, he has no understanding. When a man says his wife is like every other woman, he has no understanding. Belshazzar was judged drinking with Holy goblets (Dan. 5:1–16). The sons of Eli died eating ‘holy’ meat and doing common things in a ‘holy’ place (1 Sam. 2:22–25).
What is holy?
- Things that are untouchable for man.
- Things that are under a divine ban.
- Things that are not allowed to be handled anyhow.
- Ministry offices are holy.
- Church offerings are holy.
- God’s properties are holy.
- God’s people are holy.
- Your children are holy.
- God’s instructions to you are holy; they are not to be disobeyed or discussed.
If you violate one holy thing, you will violate any holy thing when the opportunity presents itself. A man that doesn’t tithe will commit adultery someday when the mood is right!
Revering the holy is the key to divine favour.
PRAYER: Help me Lord to always distinguish between what is holy and what is profane (common). Amen.
