  3. In the Brazen Laver we see that God is willing to wash us from the sin of our past that we might approach Him.
  4. In the Door of the Tabernacle we see that all we need is to knock in faith and God will open to us when we approach Him.

    Excellent! I have just begun studying the tabernacle and the meaning behind each item. Very interesting. It is so amazing how GOD did things in such an orderly and informative way. When the time is right our eyes are opened and we understand. At the time the Jewish people were given the very detailed instructions to follow in building the tabernacle they did not know the prophecy GOD was sharing and that some day JESUS would fulfill those prophecies and HIS sacrifice would free us all of sin and condemnation if we only accept and believe that HE is the ONLY way to our Father GOD and JESUS IS GOD. Thank YOU JESUS for your love and the sacrifice YOU made for me. Thank YOU GOD for giving us YOUR only SON to pay the price for our sins if we will believe and receive!
