The Bronze Laver

No dimensions were given for the Bronze Laver

The Bronze Laver was positioned between the Bronze Alter and the Entrance to The Holy Place


Only the High Priest could enter The Holy of Holies once a year or else he would die and priests could only enter The Holy Place or else they too would die.


The High Priest and Priests had to wash their hands and feet before entering either The Holy Place or The Holy of Holies, or else they would die because all contact with the world had to be removed before coming into God’s presence


Forget to wash and you are dead.

We must never promise (vow) to do better, or beg God’s forgiveness.

This is a vow we could\may not keep, and will not help us in the long term. We are FREE to ask God for help to overcome our sinful ways and through His Word, and depending on His promises, through prayer and the Power of the Holy Spirit. The problem areas in our life can and are overcome. He has promised to forgive if we name the sin to Him.


Jesus Christ paid in full for everything. We don’t need to feel guilty about the sin, once it’s confessed. We need to rest in His work and perfect provision and then to learn and obey His commands.
