Recently while in Israel I found a unique necklace that we have reproduced for you: A golden Star of David with 12 crystal stones — one for each of the twelve sons of Isaac, which became the twelve tribes of Israel. It also represents one of the mysteries of the Old Testament, the “Urim” and “Thummim” described in Exodus 28:15-30.
During times of danger and crisis, the high priest would take the stones mounted on a breastplate into the Tabernacle, later the Temple of God, to ask the Lord for an answer to the problem. One example was when King David needed a word from the Lord about whether or not he should go to battle with the Amalekites. He asked his priest, Abiathar, to inquire from the Urim and Thummim. The answer: “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them” (1 Sam. 30:8)! It is unclear as to how the high priest would receive the answer. When we get to heaven we will discover how these sacred stones worked.
