The ark of God represents holiness. Obed Edom took the ark of the Lord into his home, bringing the presence and holiness of God into his entire house. Opening a cell represents bringing the ark of the Lord into our home. When a cell is opened in a home, it brings 3 blessings with it (2 Samuel 6:11).
1. WE WILL LIVE IN CONSTANT REVELATION OF THE WORD OF GOD
When we have been washed by the blood of Jesus, we have the authority as leaders to be able to preach the Word of God. We shouldn’t get distracted and go off topic; our meetings should always be based on the Word of God.
2. WE WILL BRING A MESSAGE OF SALVATION TO OTHERS
We are the hope of salvation, both for the person opening their home to host the cell, and for their whole family. Perhaps they have never attended church, but they can pray the prayer of salvation in their house, accepting Jesus into their heart (John 3:17).
3. WE WILL BE BLESSED SUPERNATURALLY IN EVERY AREA
When the ark came to Obed Edom’s house, God blessed him like never before. God brings blessing to the home where we hold a cell group. Where there has been sickness, bitterness and poverty, God brings transformation, releasing healing and prosperity. The ark did not only bless one house; when David realized that God was blessing the house of Obed Edom, he brought the ark into the city. Before we conquer cities, God asks us to first conquer our cell group and our neighborhood, bringing the presence of God to many homes.
