Creating Distance (Three Days Journey)
35 So he removed that day the male goats that were speckled and spotted, all the female goats that were speckled and spotted, every one that had some white in it, and all the brown ones among the lambs, and gave them into the hand of his sons. 36 Then he put three days’ journey between himself and Jacob, and Jacob fed the rest of Laban’s flocks.Genesis 30:35–36 (NKJV)
27 We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness and sacrifice to the Lord our God as He will command us.”Exodus 8:27 (NKJV)
GPS for the Spirit
12 There is a way that seems right to a man,Proverbs 14:12 & 16:25 (NKJV)
But its end is the way of death.
34 Then the cloud covered the tabernacle of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 35 And Moses was not able to enter the tabernacle of meeting, because the cloud rested above it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.Exodus 40:34-38 (NKJV)
36 Whenever the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would go onward in all their journeys. 37 But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not journey till the day that it was taken up.
38 For the cloud of the Lord was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
