The Lampstand

By Don Ruhl

The Lord commissioned Bezalel to make the gold lampstand for the tabernacle (Exo 37.17–24). Read carefully the description of the lampstand and see if what you read fits the picture of the menorah that we often see.

The lampstand provided light in the tabernacle and you will see that it provided several sources of light.

Imagine a master craftsman, such as Bezalel, working by the Spirit of God, creating a lampstand of gold. Do you see its beauty?

Do you believe our God loves beauty?


Is the Inside Beautiful?

By Don Ruhl

Memorials display great beauty. Yet, who wants to view the decaying body on the inside?

Likewise, we do not want the Lord to see us as beautiful tombs that have ugly insides. That was just how the scribes and Pharisees were (Matt 23.27, 28).

We can make a grand display for people to see, but the Lord looks on the inside and sees our true nature. What does He see when He looks inside you?
