PILLAR (The presence of the Lord)

Genesis 28:22 and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God’s house and all that you give me I will give you a tenth.

The Scene: (7) Seven natural stones (uncut by human hands) to make a pillar. Seven  is the Bible number for completion, ministry of Jesus, revelation.

Pillars of stone, clouds, fire are mentioned early in the Holy Scriptures, representing the presence of God the Father.

Genesis 28:18-19 Early the  next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it. He called that place Bethel though the city used to be called Luz.

Bethel : House of God; also the House of God; His Church.

The Holy Spirit gave His gifts (7) to build up the Body of Christ. The seven gifts found in Romans 12: 6-8  Prophecy, Serving,Teaching, Encouraging, Giving, Leadership, Mercy–these gifts are required for the Body of Christ to exist.  In the Church, Jesus is our stone, once rejected, now our rock. Jesus is our pillar; He will return on a cloud as our Savior and King.

Exodus 13:21 By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.
