|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.

|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|Will You Wait For A Second Chance?|
|Daniel 4:28-30 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Daniel knew that God could help him but ahead had to ask first, he had to do something first. All of our lives are incomplete and unfinished. When something comes together and you feel as if everything is going good for you, don't slip up and think YOU got yourself there. God is the only one that could get you to the place that you're in with His mighty blessings. King Nebuchadnezzar had to be changed from the inside out in order for him to eat the grass as like a cow. The king was warned and told to change but he decided to not hear that. Will you make that same choice? You're not promised like the king, seven years to think about it. One time is all that God said He would call your name. One of the lies from the devil is, "if Jesus could do just this one thing". Jesus did it all on the cross for your sins. No amount of miracles or healing can prove His love or to change your mind. Repentance postponed is a ticket to Hell.|

|Getting Back To Basics|
|2 Timothy 3:10-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We've all been called into the ministry whether it be a preacher to a song leader to a praying individual. All scripture is given by the inspiration of God. The end of all arguments starts and ends with the Word of God. We hear a lot about doctrine right now. We label everything from churches to books and hymnals. The first label that should be applied is, Christian. If you say that the spirit witnessed with you, it doesn't matter what you say if it doesn't line up with the Word of God. Some will say that the bible is hard to read, understand. That statement is true but we do not read the Sunday paper, it's an instruction manual from God Himself. All scripture is of God, not just the pieces that we like and then dismiss the parts that we don't like. Some doctrines will tell you that as long as you believe and follow God then you'll be blessed with all these wonderful things. However, the bible clearly states in 2 Tim 3:12 that if you live for Christ you will go thru problems, persecution. We should study the Word daily, reading it, meditating on it and memorizing it. People are looking for answers all over the place, so we should have an answer for them from God to help them. Many folks that's been saved for many years are still babes, still on the milk when it comes to their spiritual growth. At times when we study and read the bible the things that we read might hurt us like getting a spanked. Those things do hurt and they are there for reproof and not to ignore. During readIng the bible it will bring us to correction at times. Once correction is made we should repent. Your Sunday school teacher is probably a hypocrite just like the rest of us but that doesn't make it right. We will all fail at some point and tell someone to live this way but we will live the opposite. The devil will come between Christians and try to cause conflict with anything and it seems that a lot of it currently is about doctrine. In the end, the doctrine is good but Jesus is more important. The focus should be about Jesus and Him crucified. We get caught up in the happiness of the world and fail to see the goodness of the end reward.|

|Nehemiah 8:9-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There is nothing greater than when God speaks. Do you know what it's like to have God speak to you? Our birth right or ancestry does not give us the right for God to speak to us. We should all be broken, humble before God. The joy of the Lord is our strength. There are a lot of thing in this world that will steal your joy. Some are weak from the weight of sin, the burdens of life but you need to find your strength. How many times have we been stolen from to the point that it starts affecting our testimony? So you've never felt this powerful joy, then you must look at the condition of your soul. What produces joy? The word of God as it declares that we are more than conquerors thru Christ. The Bible is truth and can never be wrong. It's the living word of the Living God. We try all things trying to get some sort of help. Some folks don't even carry their bible and don't even read it. It's like being in a marching band but never practicing or bringing the instrument. Obedience is also a joy bringer. God will deliver you if you just do what He says to do, John 15:10-11. 1 Peter 1:8 Our faith in the Word is also a joy builder. Do people look at you and think that you're unhappy or depressed? Do you find yourself wanting to be depressed, unhappy, miserable or angry? So if you've gotten out of control and missed the first three, then you've got to repent. If you've lost the joy of your foundation then you've lived contrary to Gods word. How can you be happy and joyful when God doesn't hear you? Obey, believe, study and repent in order to have joy unspeakable.|
