Exodus 26:1-27:21

Upon reading the following,

And you shall make fifty clasps of gold and fasten the curtains together with the clasps; then the tabernacle shall be one whole. (Exodus 26:6 AMP)

The Apostle Paul’s words came to me,

So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. (Romans 12:5 KJVR)

I believe the Tabernacle represents not only the Body of Christ, the Church, but Christ’s Body as well. I’m not sure how the construction and the furnishings actually match up to the Body, but I have this strong sense that everything, even the placement of the furniture and utensils is represented in the Church and in the New Jerusalem.

Matthew 25:1-30

The Parable of the Ten Bridesmaids/Virgins amazes me that five women would carry lamps and not have oil to light the lamps. To me that is like carrying a purse with nothing in it, which would make the purse/pocketbook a matching accessory holding nothing of value. If the Kingdom of Heaven is like that then the ramifications and illlustration to us are tremendous: are we for show, carrying the illusions of readiness or are we well prepared for the long haul?

The servant who buried his Talent after clearly being told to invest what was given to him (verse 14), gives two reasons for burying what he was given:

1) The “Master” was hard.
2) The “Master” was a thief.
3) Fear.

However, the Master called him plan old lazy after stating that he was wicked. That I believe was the real reason for God taking away what He had. He didn’t understand or refuse to give the proper value to what was given him. Each was given “gold” according to his ability.

Grace and peace,

Exodus 26, 27

If you get a chance to go to southern Israel or you may have been able to visit the exact model of the Tabernacle that Moses and the gang carted around for 40 years. This wonderful area is about 17 miles north of Eilat or the Red Sea. A good website to start with is Google: tabernacle model Israel. There are a lot of neat little question/answers at this site. Like how many carts did it take to move the tabernacle? 3 carts with 2 oxen pulling each cart.

I think this is one of the best explanations of the tabernacle and what it was all about is given by this guide, Allison Marshal. When I heard the symbolism here that is prevalent through out the entire Bible, it gives you shivers. Hope you have an hour to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhsyNdhRNlQ&t=51s

Mathew 25:1-30 ADVICE.

1. The Parable of the 10 Virgins – Be prepared.
2. The Parable of the Talents - Take initiative.
3. The Lesson - Jesus judges our Christian service.

Psalm 31:5
Into your hands, I commit my spirit. These are wonderful words to include in ones daily prayer.

I love these words in this Psalm: refuge, rock, fortress, and free.
This Psalm really is to shelter us from distress, depression and scandal.

Proverbs 8
Does wisdom seek us or do we seek wisdom?

8:8 All the words of my mouth are just. I think that means truth equals wisdom.

Exodus 26:1-27:21
They are making the Tabernacle now. The colors are important for blues and purples -represent royalty. Gold is a precious solid metal.

This material was so precise and used specific material and skin to keep it sacred and holy- The goatskin reminds me of the scapegoat clause-where the goat took the sin away and they would release it off camp. The Tabernacle was where Israelites come for forgiveness.

God is a God of order- He likes things just so.

Ch. 27. The Lamps must be kept burning all night-Let our light shine before all men-Love it!!

Matthew 25:1-30
More about our light shining.
The ones who are prepared will be ready for when Chrust returns- and Be wise in what God has given us-Invest in time with Jesus.

Psalm 31:1-8
I love the Psalms of David
I put protection and find protection in You alone.
I rejoice in your unfailing love.

Proverbs 8:1-11
Wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing I desire compares to it. ❤
