Today's Scripture: For the gate of the court there shall be a screen twenty cubits long, woven of blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen, made by a weaver. It shall have four pillars and four sockets." Ex 27:16

See it.

Run for cover

Live it.

Yesterday picking up my Bible by the spine, I realized the cover is in jeopardy. Even with all the digital tools available with my smart phone, I still carry my Bible with me and it is subject to hard use. Bound in leather a few years ago, the message on the cover is meaningful to me as is the man who did the binding. I'd like to keep using it, but portability is necessary and there may be changes on the way. Whether to start anew or try to fix this one, it is not known.

The Tabernacle had meaningful cover as well, but didn't lose its message upon portability. Every woven fiber to every metal connector had special meaning and after forty years of being set up and broken down had to be worn out. What happened to it when the new Temple was constructed? The Apocryphal (2 Maccabees 2:4-8) claims that Jeremiah had it placed in a secret location near where Moses received the Law. He would not allow the way to be marked and prophesied that it would only be found when God gathers His people together in the Last Days. But in inspired Scripture (Jeremiah 3:16), the prophet himself wrote that the Tabernacle and everything in it should not come to mind again, nor be missed or remade. So what shall we believe, the person or what was said about him? Seems to me that fake news is not a new idea.

Pray it.

I choose to trust in what You, Jesus, recognized as inspired and authentic.
