The Lord thy God Shall Choose
If we want the Lord's blessing we need to go to the place where He directs, and not expect that He will come to where it is convenient for us.
) And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the LORD to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom the LORD doth choose
, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.

out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come:

to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD: 
And ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God, ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your maidservants, and the Levite that is within your gates; forasmuch as he hath no part nor inheritance with you.  Take heed
to thyself that thou offer not thy burnt offerings

in one of thy tribes, there
thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and there thou shalt do all that I command thee.

And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:

) Thou shalt eat it before the LORD thy God year by year in the place which the LORD shall choose
, thou and thy household.

to place his name there.

to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.

Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose

) And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which the LORD shall choose

shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem
) And the LORD
shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again
The Lord chose to give us the Truth through an appointed Messenger. Can we expect to receive His blessing by ignoring this part of the Lord's arrangement?
Matt. 24:45-47; Rev. 1:1; 22:6, 8-10
We should also note that this is the way the Lord has dealt with every stage of the Church. He does not directly deliver His message to them but uses His angel (messenger) to deliver His message. Rev. 2:1,8,12,18; 3:1,7,14
