Pillar of Fire (Numbers 7-9)

There are two primary messages God has taught the people as they make preparations to leave Mount Sinai and journey to the promised land. First, God must be in the center of their lives. Everything they do must revolve around God. God is in everything in their lives. Second, God must be counted as holy. Defilements and sins remove people from the presence of God. God is so holy that people cannot approach him and the Levites are camped around the tabernacle to prevent anyone from approaching. This brings us to Numbers 7-9 where God delivers another important message to the people about himself and about his relationship to them before they can leave for the promised land. Open your Bible to Numbers 7 and we will begin to see this message over the next few chapters.
