Hebrews 9:4 reveals to us that three special items were stored within the Ark of the Covenant. These are the Golden pot containing the heavenly manna, that fed the Israelites during part of the Exodus, and two, The Stone Tablets of the Ten Commandments, wrote by God, and lastly, the Staff of Aaron, which budded. These three items have special significance. They represent the three blessings that believers receive in their inner spirits.
The Manna represents Salvation and under the New Covenant Jesus Christ. Jesus said, "I am the Bread which comes from Heaven" (John 6:41). If anyone eats of the special Heavenly Bread he or she will never hunger for anyone other.
The Two Stone Tablets contain the Word of God, his 10 Holy Commandments. These Commandments separate evil from righteousness. We should follow them and Jesus endorsed them in Matthew 22.
The Staff of Aaron represents the Holy Spirit and his guidiance. The Holy spirit guides us in pray and gives us power as well as comfort. In Numbers 17:8, we read that the Staff of Aaron sprouted and produced almonds. This points to our producing good fruit.
Continue to praise Jesus, read the scriptures, and produce fruit of the spirit. God Bless.
