As I was reading in Numbers today, I came across a passage that talked about Aaron’s son Eleazar. And in this passage, it talked about the responsibilities of Eleazar for taking care of the tabernacle. But, lucky I had previously know that there is some kind of connection between the name Eliezar and the Holy Spirit. Now this is a different name than Eleazar and that of Moses’ servant, so I took the time to look up what the name Eleazar means in Hebrew. Eleazar means God has helped, according to http://www.abarim-publications.com. So with this in mind, I think we may be able to draw a connection between the two. And that will become more clear, once I show you.
“The responsibility of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest is the oil for the light and the fragrant incense and the continual grain offering and the anointing oil—the responsibility of all the tabernacle and of all that is in it, with the sanctuary and its furnishings.”Numbers 4:16 NASB
So if we look at the responsibility of Eleazar, it is that he is in charge of the oil for the sacrifices. And in the same way, the Holy Spirit is seen as the anointing oil. Eleazar is in charge of the tabernacle and all that is in it. And the Holy Spirit is responsible for the new tabernacle, you! And He is responsible for what is all in you, to bring you to all truth. He is in charge of all the funishings, and the sanctuary. The definition for sanctuary is, a place of refuge and safety.
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.John 14:23 NASB
