2. Laver

[gn_pullquote align=”right”]This Laver is been kept at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting that before entering into the Presence of God, we need to be cleansed from all the iniquities which was stuck in our body which was made Holy before.[/gn_pullquote]

This Laver was placed between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar. LAVER the Hebrew word to this is “KIYOR” which means something “Round”.

“And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of brass, of the lookingglasses of the women assembling, which assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation” (Exodus 38:8)

Looking glasses are Mirrors, he made the Laver and its base of the bronze from the Mirrors of the Women who ministered at the door of the TENT of meeting (Exodus 38:8 Amp. version)

Laver

There is no reference in Bible about the size, shape and how it should be build for this Laver. So this is the Hidden secret of the Lord. God has commanded twice to the Priests that, When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water which is in this Laver (Exodus 30:20, 21).

 The Altar provides “God’s provisional cleansing”.

Though Priests work in the Holy Altar the “iniquity of the holy things” will be upon them (Exodus 28:38). The more we minister unto the people, the dirtier we will get into. Indeed defilement comes as by the product of ministering to the people.

The “Unclean lips” of Isaiah was touched by the “TONGS OF THE ALTAR” the dirt of that lips might have been stuck in that Holy Tongs right (Isaiah 6:6)? This will be considered as the iniquity of the Tongs. It is possible that the broidered coat, ephod, girdle and all which is been worn by the Priests will be defiled when he goes in the midst of the people, when he talks to them and when he ministers. This Laver is been kept at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting that before entering into the Presence of God, we need to be cleansed from all the iniquities which was stuck in our body which was made Holy before.

Brazen Altar Laver

Everybody can go near to it and use it Only Priests use it
Fire will be always burning on it Only Water will be there in it
The Brazen Altar uses Blood The Laver offers Water

  CONCAVE MIRROR:

[gn_pullquote align=”right”]You can see for yourself that how you will look like at the Sight of the Lord in this Sea of Glass.[/gn_pullquote]

Also when a Priest looks himself in this Laver keenly, the mirror will display the image of how he is before the Sight of the Lord. (Concave Mirror an amplifier of images)

Likely the Sea of Glass in Heaven (Revelation 15:2) will display the levels of glory to each and every person in the Presence of the Lord. You can see for yourself that how you will look like at the Sight of the Lord in this Sea of Glass.

Refreshment:

[gn_pullquote align=”left”]One who washes himself in this Laver is the one who will be worthy to inherit all HIS POWER, HIS INHERITANCE, HIS POSSESSIONS and HIS SHARES.[/gn_pullquote]

The Laver filled with water is been kept in the entrance to give Refreshment to the Priests. Priests who are tired and weary will enter into the Presence of the Lord only after getting refreshed here by washing their hands, and face (A Fresh Refreshing).

Even Jesus Christ is standing near to you with such a vessel. Listen Friends even unto you He says,” If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me” (John 13:5, 8). Yes, One who washes himself in this Laver is the one who will be worthy to inherit all HIS POWER, HIS INHERITANCE, HIS POSSESSIONS and HIS SHARES.

Water:

[gn_pullquote align=”right”]Don’t read the Bible without meditation nor musing nor pondering, then whatsoever you do shall prosper.[/gn_pullquote]

 This Laver signifies the “WORD OF GOD” and the “Water” within this signifies “HOLY SPIRIT”. The Word of God is a Receptacle of the SPIRIT of GOD.

“For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” (James 1:23-25)

“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” (John 15:3)

“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.” (Hebrews 10:22)

Friends look yourself keenly into this Mirror and withstand in it throughout the day. Bible says, Don’t read the Bible without meditation nor musing nor pondering, then whatsoever you do shall prosper (Psalms 1:3) and behold you will be blessed in your deeds (James 1:25)
