ASK OF GOD

Exodus 28:6: “Make the ephod of gold, and of blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and of finely twisted linen–the work of a skilled craftsman.”

The Scene: a replica of an ephod* as described in Exodus 28:6. Moses describes here the ephod, which was to be worn by his brother Aaron, the appointed high priest.

*The ephod was worn to make inquiries of the Lord. The Urim and the Thummim stones we used to hear from God, by oracles, to make right decisions and give the people direction. As Christians, descendants of Abraham, we have been given the Holy Spirit as our ephod. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit and Jesus is our High Priest, the wearer of the ephod, and our protector.

Jesus is our light. He is ever-present with us and His disciples can count on Him at all times. We have the opportunity to ask of God for His help in making decisions for our lives.

NOTE: 1)The High Priest is chosen only by Father God. 2) Answers from God are called oracles. 3) Urim means light. 4) Thummim means perfection.  (See John 8:12.)
