When you are driven to your knees, you can have overwhelming confidence that there is no better place to go. 

 

CHERUBIM OF GOLD      
"[You shall make a Mercy-Seat of pure gold] ...Make two cherubim of gold make them of hammered workat the two ends of the Mercy-Seat. Make one cherub at one end and the other cherub at the other end; of one piece with the Mercy-Seat shall you make the cherubim at its two ends. The cherubim shall have their wings spread out above, shielding the cover with their wings. They shall confront each other, the faces of the cherubim being turned toward the Mercy-Seat." [Exodus (Shemot) 25. 18 - 19 Tanakh, Torah] 

 

The two cherubim were to be as one with the Mercy-Seat.  They typify the glorified believers who are one with the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH.  These symbols of redeemed humanity are now reality as seen by the innumerable company of Adam's race, from whom the curse has been removed [Revelation 22. 3], and who take their places about the Throne of GOD and of the LAMB, act as HIS servants there, behold HIS face and have HIS NAME on their foreheads. [Revelation 22. 4] 

 

Two is the number suggesting union and agreement.  The redeemed are in union with MESSIAH.  The cherubim are the most exalted beings of the heavenly hosts, occupying the nearest position to the Throne of GOD.  What an honor!  We have been brought to the very Throne of GOD and given a seat with HIM.  We have been made of one piece with the Mercy-Seat, heirs of GOD and joint-heirs with JESUS, partakers of the DIVINE nature, sons of GOD MOST HIGH!   We rest in the finished work of Calvary and are "seated with CHRIST in the heavenlies!" 

 

The "hammered work" prophesies of the sufferings of MESSIAH WHO was "beaten" to become our ATONEMENT for sin, our MERCY-SEAT. We are one with HIM; if we suffer with HIM, we shall also reign with HIM. [2 Timothy 2. 12] 

 

Though it was a Mercy-Seat, no one could sit on it.  Sitting would imply that the priest's work was finished and this was impossible.  The priest was continually standing, offering sacrifices.  There is only one HIGH PRIEST WHO sat down because HIS ministry was finished:  "Every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this MAN (PRIEST would be more accurate here), after HE had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of GOD." [Hebrews 10. 11 - 12]   Once before the LORD Y’SHUA "sat down" after HE had read the prophecy concerning HIMSELF and HIS work [Luke 4. 20] implying that HE would finish or fulfill the OLD COVENANT. ["It is finished!" — John 19. 30 w/Hebrews 1. 3] 

 

The cherubim were not to look upon one another, nor look under the cover at the law man failed to keep, nor eastward toward the people who were sinners.   ALMIGHTY GOD commanded that their faces should be toward the Mercy-Seat. . . for upon this Sacred Cover was the blood of the sacrifice which was priceless.  The reason for this "kapporeth (covering)" was the blood of atonement that it held.  Here was the means of atonement for Israel.   Here forgiveness and pardon was offered up for them.   It was by this means that a way of access to the LOVING CREATOR was made on their behalf.   It was the "precious blood" in which the cherubim were interested as their faces looked toward the Mercy-Seat.   "You were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold...but with the precious blood of CHRIST, the SPOTLESS LAMB." [1 Peter 1. 18 - 19] 

 

Ceaselessly throughout eternity we will behold the Blood of Atonement remembering it was the work of the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA on the rugged cross which gives us the high privilege and honor to be one with HIM in glory! 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Praised is YOUR HOLY NAME, O LORD GOD.  YOU have made YOUR eternal law our portion, and gave us a goodly heritage. YOU appointed us to proclaim YOUR truth to the nations and to win them for YOUR Law of Righteousness. Sanctify us for the service to which YOU called us, O HEAVENLY FATHER, that YOUR NAME may be hallowed through us in all the world. Gather all YOUR children around YOUR banner of truth that YOUR praise may resound from one end of the earth to the other, and that the entire human family may be blessed with truth and peace!
 Sukkot, Feast of Tabernacles, starts tonight. Wishing you a joyful Sukkot! 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
