A Place for God

 

Text:  Exodus  chapters 25-40
 

God instructs Moses

               “Raise a contribution for Me from everyone
                        whose heart moves him.”

 

God's Regulations for…

               The Ark of the Covenant                               25:10

               The Table of Showbread                               25:23

               The Golden Lampstand                                 25:31

               The Tabernacle                                               26:1-37

               The Altar of Sacrifice                                     27:1

               The Altar of Incense                                       30:1

 

The Assigned Responsibilities

               God equips people for the work               31:1

                     Bezalel – craftsmanship

                     Oholiab – manufacture

              God instructs Moses about the Sabbath

              God gives Moses the tablets written by the finger of God.  31:18

 

The people’s REBELLION  --  chapter 32

               Moses has been on the mountain 40 days

               The people want a new god, so Aaron fashions a golden calf

               God prepares to destroy the people

               Moses intercedes, and God relents

 

The Repercussions

               Moses shatters the stone tablets

               The idol is burned and ground to powder

               The powder is spread on the water and the people
                              were made to drink it

           WHY drink the gold infused water?

 

Meeting with Respect

               God speaks to Moses as a friend        33:11

               God shows Moses favor

               God shows Moses the trailing of His glory

               God restores the stone tablets of the covenant

               God renews His covenant with Israel


Moses Returns to the people

               Moses returns after another 40 days

                     His face is shining

               The contribution is finally received

               The people return to the work

 

Restored

               The people bring more than enough

               Moses tells them to stop giving

               The tabernacle is completed

               The glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle

 

               Today’s Takeaways

God speaks specifically (Ex. 25 – 30)

God equips people with His Spirit to “do something” (Ex 31: 3)

The covering for sin is always “blood” (Ex 32:20)

God requires of everyone a measure of sacrifice (Ex. 34:20)

God is with His people (Ex. 40: 34-38)

 

               Reflect & Respond

Are you doing all that God requires?

Has your rebellion been brought under atoning blood?

Are you aware of the Glory of God?

 

Are YOU a place where GOD dwells?
