|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.

|Up in Elim and Down in Marah|
|Exodus 15:22-27 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|When you are first born again you'll quickly find that your life is free but soon thereafter you find that the world is upon you. When we have an unforgiving spirit our focus is no longer on Him but on ourselves. One can't grow in Christ if your drinking bitter water. Gods grace is just as good for you as it is for your enemy. Do you want living water to drink? Just ask for it. Whatever you're facing in your life God is your saving grace. It doesn't matter about the drought that the world might be in spiritually, our God has an unending supply of living water. We need to stop murmuring and remember that God can supply us with life. Stop crying to each other and your pains and troubles, cry out unto the Lord. Humans need water in order live and just as the human, Christians live the Living Water to survive. If you're bitter with someone and think they don't deserve it, all you're doing is creating a gap between you and God. Love on each other as Christ loves us. Romans 7:18-21 - do you think that once you get saved everything is gonna be alright in you're life? No, it's our job as older Christians to uplift the newborn Christians because just as soon as your saved the devil will present them with bitter water. So why don't you enjoy your Christian life anymore? Because it's you and your walk with Christ being week and drinking the bitter waters. Call out to Christ to give you His Living Water.|

|Perfect and Complete|
|1 Kings 18:41-46 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you get close enough to God you'll begin to hear things and see things that others can't see. So what are you praying for? What are seeking after? God wants to save every person in the world. God is trying to do a work in each and every person but we must stay the course. So you want to be closer to God? Get the sin out of your life, ask God to arrest your soul. You state you don't want God to be your number one and care nothing about those things, you need to be saved! Life comes from life. One can't build something out of death. What does "seven" mean in the Word of God? In the beginning you'll find that on the seventh day it is the sabbath, seven days in a week. In Leviticus you'll find that during the teaching of sacrificing they were to sprinkle the blood seven times. Lepers when healed were to be sprinkled seven times with the doves blood. In Joshua 6 they were to march and around Jericho seven days and on the seventh day to blow the trumpets and then the walls fell. The leper Naman was healed only after dipping seven times. In Revelations, seven stars and seven candle sticks and seven strong churches. Seven seals, trumpets, plaques and wraths all in seven years. Matthew, Luke and John all wrote down their views that Jesus spoke during the crucifixion. Luke 23:34 - Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. John 19:26-27 - Woman, behold thy son! Behold thy mother! Luke 23:43 - Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. Matthew 27:46 - My God, my God, why hath thou forsaken thee? John 19:28 - I thirst. Luke 23:46 - Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit. John 19:30 - It is finished What God does is perfect and complete.|

|There's Life In the Water|
|1 Kings 18:35-39 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We need to get on fire for God. Mediocrity is death. We need to let go of our indifference and let God. Life is in the water. Elijah was bringing life back to the altar. There's nothing God did t take that He won't restore. When we sacrifice what separates us from God on the altar, life is given in return. There's life at the altar. God switches our sacrifice and surrender for restoration and life. There's no life anywhere but in God. God is the source of water and wastes nothing. He is the resource. The altar is where faith is proven. It's the place where things are real. There's water all over the altar. Everything you love most is in the altar and in all these things there is life. The most important thing you could have in you altar , it's what the drought stricken world doesn't have and you can have all the water you need everyday. Why won't you go to the altar? Because the hard part is the preparation for prayer. The willingness to surrender. We aren't waiting on God; He's waiting on us. You'll never be able to go to the altar of God and not leave unchanged. But we have to bring our best. We cannot have sin and expect God to accept our sacrifice.|

|The Fields of Grace|
|Ruth 2:2-19 (Part of the Ruth 2 series).|
|There is never a coincidence with God. God is no respect of persons. Just because you're different doesn't mean that God love you any more or any less than another. With Gods children they don't have to go through this life starving for His glory and grace. With Gods grace there comes a protection that the devil can't touch you. There comes a joy when you stay with God and His grace. When you're thirsty is this life, God has drawn the water of life for us to drink freely. Happiness doesn't come from the world, it comes from Gods grace. Grace paid for your entrance to the table of God to be filled by the Spirit of God. When things in your life fail you, fill it with grace. When there seems like nothing else is working, fill it with grace. Do you have a "rags to riches" experience? Do you trust Jesus Christ?|
