Last Sunday we wrote about the Tabernacle, established by God as the place where He would meet with the nation of Israel during their time in the Sinai, and until the time of Solomon’s Temple, the first Temple.

“And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. According to all that I show you, that is, the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it” Exodus 25:8-9.

Matthew Henry writes: “… some think that, though there were altars and groves used for religious worship before this, yet there never was any house, or temple, built for sacred uses in any nation before this tabernacle was erected by Moses, and that all the temples which were afterwards so much celebrated among the heathen took rise from this and pattern by it.”

Our Post today is a summary of the most important part of the Tabernacle: the Mercy Seat.

When God revealed the pattern of the tabernacle and the way to approach Him, He also declared exactly where He would meet Moses:

Exodus 25:22 “And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.”
 

Once a year, on the Day of Atonement, the high priest would sprinkle blood on the top of the lid between the two angels.  The place where the blood was sprinkled was called the Mercy Seat. As God looked down from above to the Mercy Seat, He saw the blood covering the broken Law, atoning for the sins of the people.

Today, the only thing between us and the Law is the blood of Jesus. God sees His blood and His wrath is removed.

Sin has to be dealt with – or we die.

258057f083c0a36b1eefd4fc0b8dd6a4_MThe New American: “Just in case you missed it, the kleptocrats who populate the United Nations have big “climate justice” plans for you. On February 13, as you were preparing for a Valentine’s Day date with your sweetheart or getting ready for the Presidents’ Day weekend, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Geneva, Switzerland, released its long-awaited “negotiation text.”

That is the agreement that will take center stage in Paris at the UN’s global climate summit of world leaders during November and December.

Hmm. The text continues: “Each Party to the Convention whose per capita greenhouse gas emissions exceed the global average per capita greenhouse gas emissions” shall be listed as an “Annex I” nation, which means its citizens will be assigned a 300-year “carbon debt” for the period 1750-2050. And called on to pay it.  We’re not talking mere hundreds of billions of dollars here. As we have reported previously, various UN proposals have demanded tens of trillions of dollars as “climate reparations.”

Opinion: And there you have it. This is what our president, the Pope, and progressive liberal politicians are signing onto …. critics will scoff, skeptics say it will never happen, and globalists will  keep a straight face with a self-righteous smug.

Were it not for Bible prophecy, I too, would be a skeptic. Were it not for Matthew 24:32-34, I might even scoff:

Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!  Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”

  • The fig tree generation (Boomers 1946-1965) is one of the largest in history.
  • The fig tree is the symbol for Israel
  • The fig tree put forth leaves with the 1948 rebirth of Israel
  • A generation is 70 years, 80 with strength (Psalm 90:10) putting 2018 – 2028 as interesting prophetic times.

But, before the return of Christ we know that there is a time of tribulation coming. We know that it is the last 7 years of the law and Christians are under grace, not law.

We know a final dictator will be allowed to rule with satanic power for 7 years even controlling men’s ability to buy and sell. We know that his government will trample the earth and that the only power that can stop him is Jesus Christ Himself, using only the brightness of His coming to destroy him. That is a perfect description of the Shekinah Glory.

Climate change is the perfect deception, which not coincidentally, is the first sign that Jesus told His disciples to watch for.

Good morning,

The news of the world keep getting increasingly violent, showing great deception, and diminishing the glory and honor that is due to God. Our posts on terror, politics, and economics are meant to show you the developing signs of the lateness of the hour.

Visitors to our site spend the most time on articles and news stories that relate to prophecy. I always let Author know that when his posts are too long and wordy, or don’t really point to end times, they will rarely get read all the way through; and videos over 3 minutes are almost never viewed.

With that in mind, I suggest we keep the COMMENTS somewhat brief, and relating to:

  • the topics of the posted stories and articles
  • how we can better share the gospel of Jesus Christ

We all sin against God every day, more than any person sins against us. Yet, our faith makes us bold to ask for something that we have no right to expect – forgiveness and restoration before God.

Having faith that God forgives all our transgressions, through Jesus Christ’s death as our Passover Lamb, do we have the right to withhold this grace from others?

None of you should leave, but in all things, forgive each other in Christ.

Editor
