Exodus 30:17-21

17And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 18Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein. 19For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat: 20When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the Lord: 21So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.

The Believer

We have a new position

God has placed those who believe in Him in a new place

We become the preist

We go to God through Jesus Christ

We have a new problem

After we become saved, we are still sinners

We want to be better, but have the nature of sin still in us

God wants us to be better, to sin less

When we do sin, we have an advocate in Jesus Christ

The Laver

It was between the altar and the Holy Place

You have to go to the altar first before cleansing

The laver is a beautiful symbol of the Blood of Christ

The mystery of the laver

Its appearance

The Water

The water was a picture of the Holy Spirit

It does more than cleanse the outside, it also cleanses the inside

It symbol of God and our walk with God

We are already saved from sin

We need to be saved from the daily pollution and power of sin

The Purpose

To die not

To try to get to Heaven by any other way than Jesus means death

Works are not enough, the Bible says we are as dirty rags

There is no other way to Heaven but to be covered by the Blood of Jesus

The great thing is, it’s free for anybody who claims it

Have you been to that cleansing altar lately?
