Everything in life that we need to know is found right in the word of God, we just need to do it as He says! We see here the place being built is the place to confess sin! Which is always good for us to do!

“Desist, and learn that I am God, supreme over the nations, supreme over the earth.”

Adonai really wants and desires us to confess our sins and He promises to forgive them! He also want us to desist (rafah in Hebrew) which means drop them and let them go don’t hold on to them!

“For with the heart one goes on trusting and thus continues toward righteousness, while with the mouth one keeps on making public acknowledgement and thus continues toward deliverance.”

Today, we all need to be careful of getting hung up on our sins, just confess and drop them, but we also need to be careful of ignoring them also!
