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,

The temple and tabernacle being built. I am always amazed at carpenters and builders and their dimensions..the engineer mind. My son is a mechanical engineer so he has that sharp of a mind. That is fascinating..

Matthew..can't believe one book of the Bible is almost done this year. The talents and the oil/virgins..I sure hope what I am given that I share and give love and invest for the kingdom. The oil , I want to be ready and keep my flame burning for Jesus !

I always love hearing Matthew West story..such an amazing man!

Oh and don't be a sluggard like in Matthew and waste away your talent ability of what you have. I want to please you more than get up the corporate ladder..keep me humble Lord.

I am reading the bible this year!
