They have the tabernacle, they have the priests.
They do the sacrifices: one for the priests’ sins, one for the people’s sins, a fellowship one, because they are gathering to meet God, a grain one.
They follow the rules. It is blessed.
The lord consumes the burnt offering with fire. The people experience his presence and fall down in worship.
It is a picture of the kingdom. Where they have come from, from slavery, from disrespectful disobedience. They have come into blessing. It is a place of god’s love, and we are aware of the price of it, sin demands death.
Snapshot, freeze Israel. Don’t do anything.
