2/12/2018 — Exodus Chapters 39-40
What pops-out to me in these verses is the reality that for two Chapters the Israelites did something we have not seen them do very often:
Chapter 39:32 So all the work on the tabernacle, the tent of meeting, was completed. The Israelites did everything just as the Lord commanded Moses.
Chapter 39:42-43 The Israelites had done all the work just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 43 Moses inspected the work and saw that they had done it just as the Lord had commanded. So Moses blessed them.
Chapter 40:16 Moses did everything just as the Lord commanded him
And we see the results of this obedience in Chapter 40:34 “…the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle” and Chapter 40:49 “So the cloud of the Lord was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the Israelites during all their travels.”
I reflect on our promise in Matthew 28:20 “…and surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
