• First, Prayer is the way God transforms us into what He wants us to be like. We read, study, memorize and then ask Him in prayer and He transforms us.
• Second, Prayer is the way that God uses us in other’s lives. Evangelism, missions, discipleship, edification, provision of finances, provision of health, provision of safety, and on we could go. We ask Him, seek from Him, and Knock on His door and He answers; but ONLY through prayer.
Like the spark in the piston to the working on an internal combustion engine, only prayer can energize, explode, and cause to happen what the Lord desires that we do for Him.
Prayer is how God has chosen to move us along in our lives for Him.
The tabernacle, which God instructed Moses to construct, is a powerful lesson to guide us in our pursuit of deepening our fellowship with the Lord.
THE PRESENCE OF GOD
This is a journey into the presence of God. We enter God's presence by way of His Tabernacle, God's tent of Meeting. As we examine this incredible structure, we will see how every point of the God's Tabernacle points to Jesus.
Prayer is a journey into the presence of God. We enter God's presence by way of His Tabernacle, God's tent of Meeting. Every point of the God's Tabernacle points to Christ.
The first and primary lesson we learned about the Tabernacle was where God placed it. In the center of the Camp, with smoke slowly rising from the altar and with the Twelve Tribes in an ordered arrangement around it around. Looking intently we would note a long, black, unattractive tent of porpoise skins.
But when we traveled through the loud, smelling and busy camp and made it to the Tabernacle we would find a much different sight. When we came inside, we would find ourselves surrounded by shining gold: looking up to the curtained roof, we see the wings of the cherubim woven in; blue and purple and scarlet and fine twined linen. The light of the golden candlestick would softly shine and reveal all the beauty within.
So it is with Christ Himself. The natural man, beholding Him, sees no beauty that he should desire Him. But to those who know the Lord Jesus Christ, His beauty satisfies their souls.
The Tabernacle teaches us so much about the wonders of our Matchless God. Here are just a few of the lessons about the Lord.
