TEXT: ‘He endured as seeing Him who is invisible’ – Hebrews 11:27 THOUGHT: In both the Tabernacle and the Temple, God manifested His presence by the Shekinah glory above the Mercy Seat over the Ark of the Covenant, within the Most Holy Place. The Children of Israel could not see this as only the High Priest was allowed in there once a year on the Day of Atonement, when he made sacrifice and intercession for the sins of the people.

The Bible encourages every Christian to feed themselves. Jesus said, ‘Man shall...
