Today:[Exodus Chapter Thirty-Eight] God’s Process of Perfecting You. In Exodus 37 and 38 we see reflected the pattern of God’s process of bringing you to Himself and perfecting you in His image. It is exactly the opposite of that which performance based religion would start with. It begins with intimacy and access and working outward from there brings us to cleansing and transformation. Religion suggests we must be clean and perfect before we can have intimacy with God. The pattern in the tabernacle suggests that only intimacy and transformation makes perfection possible. A very liberating teaching.

Today:[Exodus Chapter Thirty-Seven] Participation in the Glory of God. In the artifacts used in the tabernacle of Moses, some were pure gold and some were gold overlaid with wood which represents humanity. As believers we participate with God as we are his habitation and we participate with him in intercession and in the ministry of healing (table of shewbread). Yet there are some things that God reserves to himself that given an understanding will clear up much religious misconceptions of the acceptance and love of God toward us in this life.
Today:[Exodus Chapter Thirty-Six] Activating Angels in Your Prayer Covering. The people bring more than enough materials to build the tabernacle and its artifacts. The coverings come first which speak of prayer. The angels embroidered in the coverings tell us that just as God inhabits our praises so angels inhabit our prayers. The people were filled with wisdom even so Christ is our wisdom enabling you to put on the CHRIST-MIND and fulfill your destiny in the broader purposes of God.
