Core Message

Welcome to the Laver of Water, which was originally made of polished brass. 

We use water to cleanse and purify things. It is essential to physical life. 

Priests were washed, anointed, and clothed to prepare to participate in worshipping within the Tabernacle. This ram’s horn, which symbolized power and authority, was filled with consecrated oil. 

When a Priest was washed and anointed with consecrated oil, he was set apart from the world and dedicated to serve the Lord. Through the Living Water we can also become clean from the sins of the world. 

We are taught that all things point to Christ. How do you think the Laver of Water points to Jesus Christ and His teachings?

Possible answer: He calls himself the “living water” (John 4:10)
