|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.

|Privileged Beyond... (Part 1)|
|Hebrews 10:19-21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|One of the greatest privileges of being a Christian is that we can come before Him. Many others have idols they bow down to but they are only idols and nothing more. Prior to the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ, animals were given as a blood sacrifice and only the priest could go before God in the temple. After Christ gave His life for our sins as the ultimate sacrifice then we can now go before God boldly. When the veil was opened not only did it allow anyone to look in and walk around, it opened the door for God to be let for the rest of the world, everyone. God was preparing a new way for sinners to be saved and when Jesus was crucified the new way was complete. It's difficult to explain how God presence can engulf a believer in any place at any time. It's hard to comprehend that God is always around and is always in our presence. Our first privilege is that God would allows us to be in His presence. God sent Himself as a man to earth to live as a man, feel pain as a man, die as a man and to take upon Himself every sin that would ever be committed. The difference between God and all of those other gods is that God is alive. Our other privilege as a Christian is that we have a mediator that is always there and does not require a blood sacrifice each time we go to the God.|

|Dwelling In the Tabernacle|
|2 Corinthians 5:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit if you've been saved. There is but only one purpose for this body for Christ. It is for Him to dwell to reach others thru the saved. Back in biblical times people had to travel from afar just to worship at the tabernacle. When God dwells in the tabernacle of our soul then don't have to travel at all. What would it be like if you had to get to the church in order to talk to God. What would happen if the doors were locked? Being with others that are worshiping Christ is as close to Heaven as we can get without death. The older one gets the more evident it is that you grow with Christ and the soul groans to be in His presence.|
