The questions are designed to get you thinking and to keep you focused. Some may be easy and other questions may prompt you to do a little digging, and cross referencing. All of my answers will be posted on my blog each Friday during the month of the study. I’ll also be posting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/timewarpwife Note: You’ll find that some days you are asked to read one chapter, while other days you are asked to read two or three. Here’s why… Exodus is rich in imagery and detail. Some of that detail is repeated nearly word for word near the end of the book where the Israelites carry out God’s specific instructions for building the tabernacle. Instead of repeating ourselves, we take a broader look at the chapters and their meaning. In addition to that, there were a few chapters that I felt worked best as a unit instead of separating them for the study. INTRODUCTION Part 2 of Exodus puts a spotlight on the law of Moses and the building of the tabernacle. It’s rich in detail as God conveys His instructions to Moses. Page after page describes the work that is to take place on the building of the tabernacle. Every detail is given to Moses as he communes on the mountain with God. The symbolism runs deep as we compare Old Testament scriptures with the New Covenant between Jesus Christ and His church. We see that nothing is left undone. God’s perfect plan for salvation was woven throughout the scriptures like the fine tapestry of a skilled worker. The tabernacle is a shadow of the church and the new covenant within. Beautifully adorned in fine linen, this tent was a consecrated place for God to dwell among His people. At times I was angry with the Israelites until I saw myself in them. Impatience led them to a place of idol worship, but God’s forgiveness and grace brought them through. I was inspired by Moses, a mere man yet totally devoted to the work of the Lord. A man who faithfully carried out each and every one of God’s commands. A leader whose compassion led him to plead for lives of his people. A wise man who knew how important it was for God to lead them to the promised land. I hope you enjoy this study as much as I did. At times you might ask yourself why all of this detail is important to know. You might wonder how any of this applies to your life and if you should gloss over the chapters to read something new. Don’t. Soak it in. Let God speak to you as He spoke to me. Search the scriptures. Look for every nugget of truth you can find, and you’ll never be left disappointed. Let God shape your character by learning new things. Stretch you mind and open your heart to His Word. You are loved by an almighty God, Darlene Schacht The Time-Warp Wife When Do We Start?
