What's up with tents around here? There are tents everywhere, people even camp in their own yards! And stores having tent sales. They seem to think that if you put something in a tent and announce it, people will fight over it to buy it! Literally, I don't think we can drive even a few blocks without passing at least one tent. I saw an interesting sermon on T.V. a while ago. It was about how the Israelites set up camp in the desert. God gave them specific instructions on the layout to place their tents, according to the tribes. And some people believe, after studying the numbers, that that layout made this pattern in the desert. This is a computer generated image that I snapped from the the T.V. Do you think they were living in the protection of the cross even then? It would certainly explain the following verse.
"How beautiful are your tents, O Jacob,
your dwelling places, O Israel!"
