So how do we do that?
There have always been gifted and skilled artists outside of these special times of anointing. In fact, while God was revealing to Moses those whom He had anointed and appointed to build the tabernacle, the Israelites were skillfully crafting and erecting a beautiful golden calf and offering sacrifices to it in the name of Yehovah (Exod. 32:1-6). Tired of waiting on Moses (and God, for that matter), they concocted a “god” they could more easily control on their terms! They molded and shaped what seemed good to them.
Ironically, out of cultural peer pressure, Aaron (God’s anointed to co-lead with Moses) led the charge in this idol creation. Doesn’t this scenario sound familiar with many of today’s appointed leaders?
