Do you know anyone that enjoys darkness? None of us do, do we? Well, maybe criminals. But apart from them, we don’t like the darkness. We associate darkness with danger and death. Light, on the other hand is safety and life.
The Bible goes even further and tells us that there’s a darkness inside us that’s no less dangerous or deadly. It’s a moral and spiritual darkness that prevents us from seeing moral and spiritual truths about God. Keep that in mind today as we re-visit the Holy Place room in the Tabernacle. Opposite the golden table is the golden lamp.
