Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is;
but exhorting one another: and so much the more,
as ye see the day approaching.

I appears to me that God has always had a special place to meet with and spend time with His people. We find in the book of Genesis that God walked with Adam and Eve in the cool of the evening. Exodus chapter 25:22; God gave Moses instructions about the mercy seat, and said “And there I will meet with thee, and commune with thee…”. Who among us can forget the meetings that Abraham and Jacob had with God at Bethel (the house of God)? When the tabernacle was constructed God made an appearance unto Moses and said; I will meet my people at the door of the tabernacle. When the people entered their land the temple was constructed and yearly people traveled from where they lived to worship at the temple. Today, the church (the people-not the building) is where God meets His people.

Do not misunderstand, each of us pray and talk with God through the week. Yet the evidence is clear, God has the desire to meet with His people in an assembly. I believe He loves us so much, He wants to be with us as a family. My mom and dad always looked forward to a visit from one of their children. They were thrilled, ecstatic, beside them selves when all seven children and spouses and grandkids and great grandkids visited at the same time. God our Father has set a day for a family reunion where we sing together, pray together, and worship together. There are many reasons for this, but let me interject one; it is practice for when we are all together in the presence of the Lord.

If you don’t like getting together with God’s wonderful people, you probably won’t like heaven and you just might have a spiritual relationship problem that needs to be taken care of.  I am going to that place God has appointed to meet with Him this morning. I will be in the house of God with all His wonderful people. How about you?

One response to “WHERE GOD MEETS US

  1. God has the desire to meet with His people in an assembly.

    I have a hard time understanding why believers can not see this.
