The Mercy Seat is the golden lid covering the ark. It was a slab of solid gold. It points us to Christ who became our mercy seat at the cross. Mercy seat means propitiation or place where satisfaction is made. The Mercy Seat was a place of ENTHRONEMENT. Israel was told this is God’s dwelling place on earth. The ark testified to God’s law. The Mercy Seat speaks of His Grace and was also a place of ATONEMENT. On the Day of Atonement the High Priest would sprinkle the blood of the sacrificial lamb upon and before the Mercy Seat. At Calvary, Christ shed His blood for our sins. God’s law was satisfied and His love was magnified.
The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. (Psalm 99:1)
Where do you want to spend eternity? There is but two choices.. You can either to spend eternity in heaven where there are streets of gold and you will have a mansion or you can choose to burn in hell.. There’s no gray area. There’s no in between. There’s no fence straddling. Is it time for you to turn from the ways off the world and start living a life committed to Christ?
“God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished.”(Romans 3:25)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU…. Accept Jesus as your Mercy Seat.
I hope you all have a SUPER day… Blessings & much love….D
