Today you should read: Numbers 7
Reading chapter 7 of the book of Numbers is like reading a book in itself. Nearly a hundred verses that goes into great details of how each tribe brought gifts or donations to be used for worship in the temple. If you made it to the very last verse in the chapter, you’d notice that it changed from these specific items and actions to be done with these gifts to the great role that Moses had for that worship as he would go into the tent of meeting to speak with the Lord and hear from the Lord to relate back to God’s people. I’m sure God’s people yearned for this as so much of what they did and heard was repetition and this was used as a reminder that the God that requires much, is alive and cares for them.
This is also a great reminder and picture of Jesus being our tabernacle as God speaks to us and we hear from Him through our great mediator, Jesus Christ who made a way for us to have that personal relationship with Him where we have access to Him at any moment and any time like Moses did in that tent of meeting within the tabernacle.
