The altar

Remember that whatever you see associated with the Tabernacle in the wilderness, there is a corresponding item with the church, although we may not know all the connections. Think of this when contemplating Bezalel’s work on the magnificent altar of burnt offering,

He made the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood…he overlaid it with bronze…He made all the utensils for the altar…bronze. And he made a grate of bronze network for the altar…And he made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with bronze… (Exodus 38:1–7).

So, while you may not know all the connections with something in Christianity, yet, the Lord knows, and when you give your money each week into the church’s treasury, or sing songs to Him, or make some kind of sacrifice, He sees it as though you have made it upon that beautiful altar that Bezalel made.
