The Presence of God in the Tabernacle View video
Leviticus 24:1 - 24:9
1. The LORD said to Moses,
2. "Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning continually.
3. Outside the curtain of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, Aaron is to tend the lamps before the LORD from evening till morning, continually. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.
4. The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the LORD must be tended continually.
5. "Take fine flour and bake twelve loaves of bread, using two-tenths of an ephah for each loaf.
6. Arrange them in two rows, six in each row, on the table of pure gold before the LORD.
7. By each stack put some pure incense as a memorial portion to represent the bread and to be a food offering presented to the LORD.
8. This bread is to be set out before the LORD regularly, Sabbath after Sabbath, on behalf of the Israelites, as a lasting covenant.
9. It belongs to Aaron and his sons, who are to eat it in the sanctuart area, because it is a most holy part of their perpetual share of the food offerings presented to the LORD.
Reflection
Lighting the Lamp (24:1–4)
God commands Moses to keep the lamps in the holy place of the tabernacle burning at all times. The golden lampstand and the clear oil taken from pressed olives reflect the purity and the holiness of God; the branching shape of the lampstand reminds the worshiper of the Edenic paradise where God and man enjoyed intimate fellowship. The lamps are to be carefully attended to and remain lit at all times, signifying the eternally abiding presence of God with His people. Now that the symbolism of the tabernacle and its furnishings is fulfilled in Christ, this light shines within us and reminds us of the eternal hope we have in the Gospel. May those living in darkness see this light and receive the gift of hope that does not fade away.

Bread of Life (24:5–9)
On each Sabbath, the priests are to bake twelve loaves of bread and place them on the golden table as a food offering to the LORD. The number twelve represents the twelve tribes of Israel whom God delivered out of Egypt. The bread symbolizes the fellowship between God and His people and reminds them of His gracious provision that flows from being in covenant with Him. Like the golden lampstand, the symbol of this bread offering is also fulfilled in Jesus, who identifies Himself as the “bread of life” (John 6:35). The body of Jesus Christ was offered for us on the cross so that we would never be spiritually hungry again. Let us not take the death of Christ for granted but receive His sacrifice with thanks.
Application
- What worldly things are you tempted to put your hope in? How does God’s constant and faithful presence bring you greater hope than these things?

- When do you feel the presence of Christ most strongly in your daily life? How can you express your thanks and devotion to Him for His sacrifice?
A Letter to God
Heavenly Father, thank you for sending us the true Light of the World. Even when all of my plans fail, help me to know that my salvation is secure in Christ, not because of my works, but because of His perfect faithfulness. In His name I pray, amen.
