|Get Out Of Your Tent And Go Get It|
|Exodus 16:1-32 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Spiritually speaking, God has no lack. You have not because you ask not. When it comes to eating, it's unheard of to eat from someone else's plate. Just in the spiritual form, one is not to eat from someone else's spiritual plate. God requires one to go and get their own spiritual food. We live in a country where people depend on others instead of doing for themselves. In order to read the bible you must open it. In order to focus on God you must turn the distractions off. If you don't have church on one day, do you just leave you bible in the car?|

|The Emblem of Deliverance and the Provider|
|Exodus 17:8-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Shepherds usually had a staff, a stick. Exodus 3:4 tells a story of Moses experiencing a bush that was on fire but wasn't consumed by it. The burning bush being God told Moses to take his shoes off because he was on holy ground. Just today, we should condition ourselves for the presence of God.
Thinking about the staff of Moses, God used this staff as a proof. Exodus 4 explains that this staff was the rod of God. This rod was powerful tool of God that was used as the beginning of the plaques, turned into a snake that ate the magicians tricks. The rod of God was also used to split the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross on dry ground. It was also used to close the Red Sea. It was used to strike a rock for water to burst forth in order to water the Israelites cattle and themselves. The rod of God was held up above Moses' head and as long as it was, the Israelites people were able to prevail against the army of Amalek.
Now we often think we ourselves can do anything. The truth is that we can't do anything of ourselves. The rod was a symbol of the future to come, Jesus Christ. We can't do anything without Jesus Christ. The rod, just a Christ, is used as deliverance in any time of need. We have an emblem that we can hold high which is the cross. The reason one goes to Hell is because they reject Christ as Gods only son and Him being crucified and raised again for our sins.
The rod was also a provider as it provided safety and water. Safety from Pharos and the Amalek armies. Provider of the water when the rock was struck. In our arrogance we often think we can provide and to give safety. When the bills are due and they become paid. When the cupboard is barren but the food comes in. Satan is a coward and always strikes from the back. When he begins to attack Jesus comes from the front and chases the enemy away. Just in today's time we should help out each other and lift them up, hold the up in order to fight against the devil. We should also lift Jesus Christ up for all to see. The purpose of the church is to lift up Jesus Christ and if we can do that the job will get done.

|Altar of Incense|
|Exodus 30:1-10 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Inside the Holy Place
The Table of Show Bread
Altar of Incense
Top of the Altar of Incense
Coals from the Bronze Altar was to be brought to the Altar of Incense. The incense was to be burnt 24/7. The continues incense is something that's odd to us because we do not follow it any longer. The smoke was continuous and perpetual which is the same as His intercession that He has for us now, Heb 7. It was enjoyable to God, sweet smelling to Him. Christ is our incense now. The incense is exclusive, Ex 30:7-8. Heb 7:25 Jesus is making intersession for us constantly.
Ex 30:34-37 there was only one thing that God would accept and it was specific. We also have the only acceptable form and that is Jesus Christ. He alone is the only way unto Heaven and ones salvation. Rom 8:26-28
It's important that it's exclusive. Two times a day the incense was to be placed on the altar. It was a constant stream of smell. No strange fire was to be brought, it was to be pure. Just as today, if you try to do it yourself God will not accept it. Nothing other than Jesus Christ will God accept. Religion, church attendance, baptisms or works will never get one into Heaven. It's a strange fire, offering and will not be accepted by God for your salvation. John 14:6
There is still power in the mediation. You should be very careful of your lifestyle and how you live. Death has been on our trail since we were born into this world. But, God gave us a way to escape thru Jesus Christ alone that we may escape death to live in Heaven for eternity BUT only if Jesus Christ is accepted as your savior. Rom 8:30-39
The offering has been made and the incense is burning. Come and accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior.

|The Menorah; The Importance Of Light In The Darkness|
|Exodus 25:31-40 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Every day the priest would enter into the Holy Place. The table of show bread was ate and the oil and wicks were trimmed. The lamp was representing the tree of life and even Jesus referred to Himself as the vine and branches. Buds represent something is about to happen. A talent of gold is about 75 pounds cost in todays time, $1.25 million. The math on the lamp total is seven, a perfect number for the branches. In order to get into the Holiest of Holies there must be some light. Natural light was not in the Holy Place therefore there had to be a source of light created.
The oil had to be pure oil and had to be beaten, not pressed. Just as Jesus wasn't pressed but He was beaten to make us pure. God could have made the the lamps to never burn out but He required new oil every morning. Just as us, we need fueled every day by Jesus.
Knops being buds, something that had not yet bloomed. At some point a bud will form a flower, then will form a fruit.
Once you're saved, called out of the darkness, a light will forever shine the path to righteousness. Natural light can not illuminate the Word of God, it can not get one to God. Except the light of God draw one, that is the only way. So until you're lost you can't be saved, until you're sick you can't be healed. God is the only one that knows the path because He sees beyond what we can ever seen. While Jesus was in the world He was the light of the world. BUT, He left and and filled us the saved with His light. Without Him leaving there would have been no way for the light to be left inside Christians. Back before Jesus came to earth times were truly dark but when Jesus fulfilled the plan of salvation, He left a light for us to always have. His word is the brightest light that could ever be. In Heaven there is no need for a sun because God Himself is the light that shines. His light shines so bright that there are no shadows in Heaven.
There are times when we will be in dark places. We can not fight them with the flesh but with the spiritual darts provided by Gods Word.

|Exodus 30:17-21 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
The laver basically means round. It was round at the top and round at the bottom. Running water was a must as it could not be stagnant water.
The sacrifice was already made by the time the laver was used. One must be prepared by using the laver before going into the presence of God. We must all prepare to meet God. We should all stop and think about who God is and if we are preparing ourselves to go before Him.
There was life in the water. God told Moses to strike a rock and water began to run to give life to those that were thirsty. The lady at the well was told that Jesus Christ can provide a water that a person would never thirst again. There is also a fountain of water that flows from under Christ's throne.
There are things that we touch, that we see, that we involve ourselves in that are of the world that should be purged of. Imagine the priest standing at the laver, rubbing and searching, rubbing and searching just to make sure that he was clean before God. God said that if the priest was not clean prior to coming before Him that he would be struck dead.
There are things that we do on a daily basis are likely many sinful things. This is because we are of the flesh and the flesh is sinful.
James 4:8 we should draw closer to God BUT we should cleans our hands (sins, repent) before doing so. If you're a Christian and are having a problem getting your prayers thru to God, make sure your life is cleansed from sin. God will not hear you if you're in sin because He can see/hear over the sin. Ephesians 5:26 Christ gave Himself to the church but He is the water that washes away and removes our sins. Once we are saved, all of our sins on the inside are forgiven and removed forever BUT the outward flesh is sinful and should be cleaned often.
