Gen 3:8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
When God came down to visit Adam and Eve in the garden to have fellowship with them, they were both hiding from God because of sin. When sin enters in our life or when sin reigns in our life, we will automatically hide from God because either we do not want it to be exposed or we fear God that He will punish us. Like Adam and Eve, many will be hiding from God when Jesus Christ comes as a King to reign the earth. Those who knew Him will be hiding and those who do not knew Him will also hide from Him because of the glory of God.
Why would one be hiding from God? Because of sin in one’s life. When one persistently live in sin even though they knew Christ, they will be hiding in the darkness when He comes. Those who are cleansed from their sins by the Lamb of God and walk in righteousness continuously, will boldly in confidence be ready to meet Him.
So the question we should ask today, if God in Christ comes today, would you be hiding, or in confidence, rejoice greatly to meet Him?
Jesus our Lord said, behold I stand today at the door and knock; if anyone opens the door and invite Me, I will come in and dine with him. Many today do not open the doors of their heart because of guilt, shame and lust. They want to live the way they lived because they like it and love it. This is how Satan has blinded the understanding of many. They were afraid to open it for various reasons. But on the contrary, Jesus our Lord says, I know your weakness, I know your nakedness and I know your pride so why don’t you open the door, I will come and cleanse you and live with you. You will be Mine and I will be yours like in the garden of Eden.
Would you come out of hiding today? Repent and invite Lord Jesus to stay with you. You will not be ashamed.
I John 2:28
And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
