We are Touring the Old Testament Tabernacle these days together and this morning the tour continues!
With so much confusion today regarding how a person can find know God ... I am grateful that the Old Testament Tabernacle settles the issue once and for all!
Now don't think that God is playing hide-and-go-seek with you! That somehow God is hiding and it's up to you to find Him! He is not playing hard to find.

1 Timothy 2.4-5, "who desires all men to be save ...
