_10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.  10:2 And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.  10:3 Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace._

 *#The LORD will be Sanctified in us and Glorified before all the People.*

Nadab and Abihu, Aaron's sons offered a strange fire before the Lord, which the Lord has not commanded them. They didn't escape the judgement of the Lord. The fire of the Lord came and devoured them without remedy. It was a terrible experience for them.

Moses, had to let their father know what the Lord has spoken concerning what has happened and after he heard what Moses said, Aaron held his peace. The LORD said, He will be sanctified in them that come near Him and before all the people He will be glorified.

God is a loving Father, He doesn't just act. It is not good to see the other side of Him. Apostle Paul, revealed the basis on which we persuade men.

 _"2 Corinthians  5:11  Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences."_

That, He is silent now doesn't mean that, He will be silent forever. He has reserved His judgement for the unrepentant souls, our Lord Jesus Christ is busy making intercession for us before the Father. He's expecting everyone to repent and not to perish. His judgement is near! The wrath of God is unbearable. Don't take His grace and presence for granted.

Reference God in holiness, as you approach His presence. Don't be confident when you are living in sin and you still walk up to the altar of the Lord and offer sacrifices, either of worship or prayer. It will be a strange fire. Some brothers or sisters sleeps over at their boy or girl friends house on saturday and go to church service from there. They may even be the one to lead praises and worship and everywhere is charged while singing or praying and the people will be like, God moved  powerfully in the service. What kind of fire do you carry, hope is not a strange one?

'The Lord will be sanctified in them that come nigh unto him and before all the people He will be glorified.' The Lord will visits His church and cleanse it from every impurities. Repent today, if somethings are not right in your relationship with God.

#God bless you

Thank you Lord, for your grace and mercies. I'm sorry for whatever that I have not done right in your presence. Heal me Lord and restore me, in Jesus name. Amen!
