Israel in the wilderness was blessed when they followed God's literal cloud by day and pillar of fire by night. We in the New Testament era can likewise incur great blessings by "following the cloud" of God's presence, purposes, and guidance.
Exodus 13:17-22 ...[18a] So God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea....  After leaving Succoth they camped at Etham on the edge of the desert.  By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloudto guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.  Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.
THE SOLUTION: CHRIST turns the OLD TESTAMENT OBSOLETE.
It is easy, and it is also a suggestion based in the OBVIOUS.
From a truly Christian perspective, the coming of Christ and His sacrifice and resurrection, TURNS THE OLD TESTAMENT
If we consider the manipulations of Saulus of Tarso, known as Saint Paul, condemned by the Church of Johannes, we will find that the Death and Resurrection of Christ, The Messiah, is the end to the "Bible". After Christ, the true nature of the so called Old Testament becomes EVIDENT.
It is the story of Alien Farm. Is the story of Elohim ( plural, gods)
The myth of the Serpent defeating God's purpose, tells us a lot. In several images of the Virgin Mary, the serpent is crushed under Her foot. The Mother of God as , ends the rule of the Serpent, the Rule of the Old Testament.
The importance of this MUST be understand as a flashing light, as a fire in the night.
Christ love is absolute, not conditioned, so we all are judged and saved already, if we UNDERSTAND THIS. After Christ, Hell is empty.
