Exodus 25:21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. 22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.In the ark is the testimony but above the testimony on the ark is the mercy seat. It is at the mercy that He meets us. It is on the mercy where the blood was sprinkled. It is because of Jesus, His death on the cross, His shed blood that we can come to the Mercy Seat. You have been afraid to come to the Lord. You have thought that you are not worthy. You are right. But He meets us at the Mercy Seat. None of us are worthy. We all come to get mercy! When He gave them commandments, even, He spoke from the Mercy Seat. What a wonderful truth! What a wonderful God! He meets us and talks to us from the Mercy Seat!
