Exodus 29-31:18 (New King James Version)
Personal testimony - yesterday, 2/9/11, God totally moved! Our vehicle was going to be paid off on 3/1/11. According to the contract, it was to be paid off on 4/1/11. Yesterday, we were sitting - getting ready for lunch, and the car lot where we purchased the vehicle called to say we could come get the title! Hallelujah, we were forgiven 2 payments! God is soooooo awesome. Thank you, Father God for your grace and mercy on us sinners saved by grace.
Aaron and His Sons Consecrated
As God is describing the intricate garments that Aaron and his sons will wear, He is also describing the process of blood sacrifice for sin. The animals are brought and Aaron and his sons put their hands on the animal while they are being killed so they know what struggle is caused to die of/from sin.
He also describes the parts of the animal is to be used and how during the process.
Daily offerings for a sweet smelling aroma in the tabernacle
Altar of Incense
The ransom money - every year those 20 and above gave this offering.
The bronze laver
Holy Anointing Oil
God gives ingredients for these and tells when and how to use them.
Artisans for Building the Tabernacle
And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, 4 to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze, 5 in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of workmanship.
Until this time, there had never been a structure of this type and God gives inspiration to Bezalel to do this. I am so astounded at how God does things. He sees a need and just makes it happen. He sees a desire and just makes it happen.
The thing that astounds me is that He desires our relationship with HIM! He inhabits eternity and He wants a relationship with you and me!
