Daily Devotions, Evening and Morning Devotional


Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 12 - Evening

“On the day the tabernacle, the tent of the covenant law, was set up, the cloud covered it. From evening till morning the cloud above the tabernacle looked like fire. That is how it continued to be; the cloud covered it, and at night it looked like fire. Whenever the cloud lifted from above the tent, the Israelites set out; wherever the cloud settled, the Israelites encamped. At the Lord’s command the Israelites set out, and at his command they encamped. As long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle, they remained in camp. When the cloud remained over the tabernacle a long time, the Israelites obeyed the Lord’s order and did not set out. Sometimes the cloud was over the tabernacle only a few days; at the Lord’s command they would encamp, and then at his command they would set out. Sometimes the cloud stayed only from evening till morning, and when it lifted in the morning, they set out. Whether by day or by night, whenever the cloud lifted, they set out. Whether the cloud stayed over the tabernacle for two days or a month or a year, the Israelites would remain in camp and not set out; but when it lifted, they would set out. At the Lord’s command they encamped, and at the Lord’s command they set out. They obeyed the Lord’s order, in accordance with his command through Moses.”

- Numbers 9:15-23

The Presence of Israel's God was Visible    

The cloud was a continual manifestation and a reminder to Israel that their God dwelt with them and in their camp. Many ancient temples claimed to house the presence of their god. The builders of the temple in ‘Ain Dara even carved huge footprints of their god’s feet that were left from his arrival to the temple and his walking into their “most holy place to be seated (photo). In Israel’s camp, God was actually there to bless, to lead, to protect, to teach and to provide for his people.

Israel’s responsibility in this covenant relationship with the ever-present Yahweh was to obey and follow this Great God. The days in the wilderness were the great days of God manifesting his presence and a generation of Israelites growing in knowledge, understanding and faith.

It goes without saying, but should be noted that historically this Great God entered into his believers of the church age on the Day of Pentecost in the book of Acts. Since that time the presence of God has been in and with every person who has believed the message of Jesus’ resurrection.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"“The great commandment is that we preach the gospel to every creature, but neither God nor the Bible says anything about forcing it down
people's throats.”
– Louis Zamperini
Something to Ponder??

1999 the median salary for Protestant ministers, including housing, was $40,000 a year. The median salary for teachers who hold a graduate degree was $45,000. The average Protestant pastor of a small congregation received a salary/housing package of $31,234. But, the same pastor of a congregation of more than 1,000 receives a salary/housing package of $81,923. Roman Catholic priests make less and Jewish rabbis earn more than Catholic priests and Protestant pastors combined.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Paroxusmos (Gr) – Provoke Eng) – paroxusmos is a Greek word that is built on the root word oxuno which means “to sharpen, “to incite,” and “to irritate.” Paroxusmos is the word oxuno with the prefix para “beside,” “along side,” and, also, “away from.” The prefix para adds the idea of movement of something while being along side of it. Together para-oxuno means “to come alongside to incite and to irritate.  Thus, paroxusmos means “to provoke”.


King Herod’s tomb was found in 2007 by Ehud Netzer at the Herodium (photo on location HERE, here and here). Remains of Herod’s smashed sarcophagus have been re-assembled (see photo here and here). Josephus accurately records Herod’s funeral and burial at the Herodium in “The Jewish War” 1.670-673. (Details here and here)

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I understand that the presence of God dwells with me?
Do I ever consider this fact during the day?
I will meditate on this truth: The Lord dwells with me. And, I will allow this reality to
alter my attitude and my actions.

"A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.” – Proverbs 12:4
