Psalm 105:15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
Sometimes I wonder if even well-meaning Christians look over this little verse. They may think, “well that was so long ago, it was in the Old Testament, God does not mean this so much in today’s day and age.” However, I believe this verse is just as valid today as it was the day it was written.
Now I know some of you may be looking at this and thinking, “Here goes the preacher warning us about being mean to the preachers.” Well, to some degree, I believe there is relevance to that, and it ought to be pursued. Preachers today are the prophets of God. Not prophets as we find in Bible times who are still receiving new revelations from God. Nevertheless, they do convey the words of God from His Holy Word the Bible and they are in that sense prophesying His word. However, I think this verse is about something else. About someone else.
What I see in this verse is the love God has for the Children of Israel. In the context of the chapter, God is speaking about the people of Israel. He is warning those who might harm her of His undying love for this people. We seem to forget, after all these years, they are still God’s chosen people. He has not forgotten them, and neither should we. God loves them just as you and I would love a rebellious child. Do we quit loving them? NO. Do we sometimes have to punish them for their actions? YES! Nevertheless, the love never ends. Well folks, neither has God’s love for His Children.
Remember Israel and pray for God’s chosen people.
