Cities Of Refuge

Topic: Cities Of Refuge [21/05/2017]

The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Proverbs  18:10. Read: Deut 4:41-43

In the old testament, God commanded Moses to separate three cities of refuge ( Bezer, Ramoth and Golan) for anyone who unintentionally slay his fellow man to run into for safety lest, the avenger of blood gets hold of him and slay him. These cities were separated for safety to keep the avenger of blood from shedding innocent blood.

But in the new testament, God knowing full well that running to one of those cities for safety could be strenuous, He gave the name of the LORD as a strong tower which the righteous can run (call upon) into and be saved. The name of Jesus and His blood has become our cities of refuge that can save anyone (not just the righteous alone) that calls on Him in faith because "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth"Phil 2:9-10. His name can save you from every kind of mess and His blood can cleanse you from every filthiness and destroy every dead works in your life.
