Exodus 34-36 THE SIN OF AARON
The first person to be consecrated after exit from Egypt in God’s holy order of service was Aaron and it was a ceremony. That was favor. He never prayed for it, neither did he fasted for it. It was the Lord’s choice. Technically, there were other people who were filled with the Spirit of God. They were only filled for the construction of the Tabernacle and not for the holy order. Such as Bezaleel who was assigned the construction work and others assigned to make the consecration garment, Exodus 28:3. But Aaron was filled with the spirit of the assignment of the holy order in service to the Lord as a covenant to his generation. Not one could do the work and be accepted before the Lord, except Aaron and his sons. Any other person will be regarded as a transgressor of the law and abomination to the holy order. It is therefore a wise thing for us to remain in that which we were called and not deviate.
1 Corinthians 7:20 “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.”
There is one thing we must know. Whatever God initiates will require the Spirit of God to interpret it. This includes your destiny. Your destiny is God’s blueprint for your life and you will need to have the Spirit of God in you to be able to read the blueprint. The devil will make serious efforts to debar you, but with the Spirit of God, you will win; Joseph won his own battle against the antagonists of the blueprint of his destiny by the spirit of God. He was the first person to bear the evidence of that Spirit after He was mentioned at creation in Genesis 1
Genesis 41:38 “And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?”
You may receive prophecies upon prophecies concerning your destiny, you will need the Spirit of God yourself to realize it. You must be born of the Spirit to receive the grace to be led.
Aaron was under pressure from the children of Israel. He suggested how to make the gods to them, Exodus 32:1-6. This grieved God for Aaron to use the grace given to him to raise an altar and addressed the molten image as the LORD. More grievous was the FEAST TO THE LORD. The origin of the FEAST TO THE LORD was God Himself. He initiated it as an ordinance at the Passover and to be kept as a memorial.
Exodus 12:14 “And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.”
Therefore, Aaron sinned in these wise:
- He was consecrated to the holy order after the construction of the Tabernacle, but he started earlier without the priests’ garment and without being commissioned.
- He attributed an idol to God
- He transferred the feast of the Lord to an idol.
Exodus 32:5 “And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.”
Exodus 32:35 “And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.”
Aaron was in trouble of the wrath of the Lord for leading the children of Israel to error. God wanted to destroy him, but the intercession of Moses saved him.
Deuteronomy 9:19-20 “For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the LORD was wroth against you to destroy you. But the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also. 20 And the LORD was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also the same time.”
You will be committing the sin of Aaron if you:
- Have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and still hallowed other gods as equal to the living God.
- Celebrate feasts to other deities.
- Make sacrifices which you are told to do by some fake prophets.
- Counsel the young in faith to error.
- Minister out of the jurisdiction God has given you.
- Visit any shrine and bow before any unholy deity.
- Eat food sacrificed to idols.
- Do not follow the leading of the Holy Spirit; but you follow the voice of the people.
Luke 8:8 “And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit a hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
Revelation 2:7 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
May the Lord open our inner ears for us to hear what the Spirit says in the name of Jesus Christ. AMEN
