Preparing the Leader for the Journey–Exodus 26-31

God spent well over a month teaching Moses all the things he needed to know to lead the people of Israel. As their leader, He had to be a general and a general contractor. He had to be able to assess the lives of his people and accessorize the tabernacle. The teaching was personal, detailed and significant. Moses must have realized that this was the undertaking of a lifetime. God took the time to personally teach him, comfort him and prepare him for what was ahead. Then at the end, God personally wrote out the terms of the covenant on two stone tablets—to send home with Moses so that the people would never forget.

In our lives, God knows following him is no small undertaking. That is why when we accept him as Lord and Savior, it is only the beginning of a lifetime journey. His spirit takes the time to mold us and teach us to live as kingdom children. His spirit is like the tablets—with us as a constant reminder that he loves us and will accompany us to the journey’s end. We, as his children simply need to realize and accept that we will always be learning and growing–until either we go to join him, or he returns to get us. Paul said it best—“He who has begun a good work in you will carry it to completion until the day f Christ Jesus.” Phil 1:6.

God Bless You

“For the inside of the Tabernacle, make a special curtain of finely woven linen. Decorate it with blue, purple, and scarlet thread and with skillfully embroidered cherubim.

Hang this curtain on gold hooks attached to four posts of acacia wood. Overlay the posts with gold, and set them in four silver bases.

Hang the inner curtain from clasps, and put the Ark of the Covenant in the room behind it. This curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place.

“Then put the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—on top of the Ark of the Covenant inside the Most Holy Place.

Place the table outside the inner curtain on the north side of the Tabernacle, and place the lampstand across the room on the south side

When the Lord finished speaking with Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, written by the finger of God.
