Genesis - Part 16

Genesis - Part 16

The lesson on June 16, 2019 was part 16 of the "Genesis" study.  In the lesson, Wayne looks specifically at the Ark of the Covenant and it's role in the temple.  We learn from the Old Testament of the glory of the Temple Solomon built that housed the Ark and the function in played being the gateway to heaven where God would dwell (which we find as the language of the portal).  We looked at scripture that prophesied of the restoration of Israel and the Temple but we learn that they will no longer remember the name of the Ark because it will be replaced by the true temple of God in Christ Jesus.  There is no description of the Ark in prophecy because it was probably destroyed because there would be no more need of it.  The scripture reading was in Jeremiah 3:12-17 KJV

"12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger for ever.13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the Lord. 14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: 15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. 16 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the Lord, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the Lord: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more. 17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart."
