“LORD, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in Thy holy hill?” Psalm 15:1 (KJV)
These are two very important questions. They could have been asked by David after attempting to move the Ark of the covenant to Zion’s Hill in the wrong manner, it was touched by Uzza, and he perished (1 Chronicles 13:7-11).
There is this one thing that professing Christians of 2014 seem to forget and that is that GOD is still holy. He is still a “Consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:29), and it is still a “Fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:31). Those references are from the New Testament written and quoted after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. So do not go off on a tangent saying, “We are no longer under the law” which has absolutely nothing to do with it. God is still holy. He is still Jehovah [YaHWeH].
The questions “Who shall abide in Thy tabernacle?” None of us are worthy. “Who shall dwell in Thy holy hill?” Again none are worthy.
O, but the death of Jesus Christ; God’s perfect, sinless, spotless, undefiled, pure sacrifice paid the sin debt that was mine and yours. Jesus was the sin-bearer for me, and for you. Because of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus we can abide in His tabernacle; we can dwell forever in His holy hill.
No I am not worthy, you are not worthy to abide with God. We cannot dwell in His presence, but through His Son Jesus Christ. Believe Him. Call on Him, and come into His presence and abide forever.
