II Chronicles 15:3 Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.
God want His people to know about Him and all that He has had to say. Israel had not been walking with God for a long time. The reason was that they didn’t have anyone teaching them the law, the books of Moses, the Word of God. It is vitally important that God’s Word be taught to His people.
Today many churches would fear the idea of a teaching priest or preacher. It is more about the bombastic nature of the message than the content. It is more about something that the person feels than what God is actually saying.
I want to always be part of a church that holds the Bible in very high esteem and spends time to teaching and preaching what it actually says.
