Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Message of the Laver”
“He made the laver of bronze and its base of bronze, from the bronze mirrors of the serving women who assembled at the door of the tabernacle of meeting.”
The furniture of the Laver is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. It was made of highly polished bronze, from the bronze mirrors of the serving women. Bronze is a symbol of God’s Judgment. The Altar of Burnt Offering was made of Bronze and so was the Laver.
The picture I attached shows the Altar is outside the tabernacle of meeting where the sacrifice is given - a symbol of our Commander outside the camp (Heb.13:30), the Lamb of God, the Sacrifice nailed to the Altar of the Cross.
Then we come to the Laver, the closest furniture to the Tabernacle of Meeting. It’s like a “looking glass mirror,” full of water. It serves to show us our imperfections (like mirrors do), and remind us of our desperate need of cleansing from the old ways of doing evil with of hands, and walking with our feet in evil and selfish paths of unrighteousness. Oh, “how can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your Word.”(Psa.119:9). Our Commander sets us apart for Himself as a He sets The Church aside for Himself “..that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the Word,” (Eph.5:26).
Here we judge our self unworthy, so we are not judged by God (1Corin.11:31).
Then we cleanse our hands and feet with the washing of His Word, His Mercy and Forgiveness (1John 1:9), His Love (John 17:23), and His Adoption as son and daughter (Rom.8:15-17). Oh, how wonderful this is!
Now, because of our Commander’s Sacrifice on the Altar of the Cross, and our godly sorrow of confession and repentance, and His mercy and forgiveness - we can enter the Tabernacle of Meeting, and meet with our Commander and King; coming boldly as son and daughter, to His Throne of Grace (Heb.4:16).
The Message of the Laver is to maintain a state of preparation, by walking humbly with our Commander (Micah 6:8) and hiding the Treasure of His Word in our heart! (Psa.119:11) Ooooh Rah!
