#155 ⛺ Exodus 37-40 God's Tabernacle Erected ⚱️⚜️👑
This podcast completes the book of Exodus. After Adam and Eve sinned and the world fell into decay and death to become separated from God's presence, God returned to choose His people and be their God. He promised Abraham to make his descendants numerous and a nation. He began to fulfill His promise and freed the Israelites who had been enslaved in Egypt for 400 years. He made a covenant with them that if they obeyed Him, he would be their God to provide for them and lead them to the promised land. The Israelites, the twelve tribes, agreed and began their exodus from Egypt to the wilderness.
It was in the wilderness that God began to reveal Himself to His chosen people and His character. He laid down the law with the Ten Commandments and established the Mosiac covenant to sanctify His people and make them Holy because God is Holy. While Moses was at the mountain top, meeting with God, the Israelites forgot God and built their golden idol calf to worship their god. In anger, Moses broke the two tablets that God handwrote His commandments. God still gave mercy to allow them to live when He was angered to wipe them out. Afterward, the redeemed Israelites continued with God and built God's house, the Tabernacle, where God would reside once again with His people.
This book ends with God's glory resting in His house, His earthly temple. The character of God will continue to be revealed to establish His Kingdom on earth slowly until the new heaven and earth are restored as God's original plan with the Garden of Eden. Exodus reveals amazing qualities of God and His plan to redeem us into His Kingdom to live with Him once again and be restored.
Exodus 37 continues the detailed account of the construction of the Tabernacle. Under the guidance of Bezalel and Oholiab, the skilled artisans crafted the sacred furnishings and vessels according to God's specifications. They built the ark of the covenant, the table for the Bread of the Presence, the lampstand, the altar of incense, and the anointing oil. Each item was fashioned with precision and care—the meticulous execution of God's instructions and the craftsmanship in creating God's holy objects.
Exodus 38 further details the construction of the Tabernacle, the creation of the altar of burnt offerings, the bronze basin, and the courtyard. It ends with a summary of the materials used and the completion of the construction project.
Exodus 39 focuses on creating the priestly garments. The skilled artisans crafted the ephod, the breastpiece, the robe, the turban, and the sashes, following God's detailed instructions. The attention to detail and the use of precious materials reflected the significance of the priestly attire in facilitating the worship and mediation between God and the people. The chapter emphasizes the completion of the entire construction project, including both the tabernacle and the priestly garments.
Exodus 40 marks the culmination of the construction project as Moses received instructions for setting up the Tabernacle. He was instructed to arrange the furnishings and place the Ark of the Covenant in the Most Holy Place. Moses anoints and consecrates the Tabernacle and its components, symbolizing their dedication to God. The cloud of God's presence covered the Tabernacle, signifying His divine approval and dwelling among the people. The Israelites faithfully followed the cloud as they continued their journey in the wilderness, guided by God's presence.
Exodus 37-40 details the completion and consecration of the Tabernacle, showcasing the skilled craftsmanship, precision, and adherence to divine instructions in its construction. The Tabernacle was a sacred space, and the priestly garments facilitated the Israelites' worship and connection with God. The narrative culminates in God's visible presence covering the Tabernacle, signaling His approval and guidance as the Israelites embark on their journey.
