We are doing a Bible Video Study of Ray Vander Laan.
And I have to tell you everything Ray Vander Laan pointed out to us comparing The Creation with the comparison of Moses building the Tent Tabernacle for God was - incredible. Moses' Creation. A comparison of the Universe to what was in Moses' hands.
God used two pages in the Bible to tell of Creation. (Peter was more elaborate and spoke of one day to God is Thousands of Years.)
Moses spoke to God in 50 pages of 3,000 pages to tell of the Tent Tabernacle. The released slaves use their creativity to worship God. A thanksgiving. Comparing and contrasting the Joy Jesus tells us in Proverbs of Creation - Jesus laughed with delight.
Moses is completely enthralled with the area God has helped him to carve out in this time, in this life - to honor God.
Ray Vander Laan makes a powerful, meaningful point that this is - the space - we make for God. In the heart. In our time. In our life. What we bring to the Lord He has not given us - Gratitude.
I almost felt shocked at the idea. Moses time was for Moses. Moses is Magnificent. And because life is real - the tent of Moses is carved out of the desert - Prince of Egypt - Harsh conditions. Fearful conditions. And Moses was glad for his time to have with God.
We have something exactly like Moses...
Today. This is our life. Today, we get the same choices. Just like Moses. This is your life. Your time. And perhaps your desert. We all have to solve our life puzzles. And bring to our lives - the time, heart and space we give to the Lord God.
Just like Moses, we get our life to believe - thank You.
We can use our lives to do the work God has given mankind - Believe.
Ray Vander Laan pointed out that the Menorah is actually an artistic representation of Moses' Burning Bush.
And when you look again, this combines Aaron believed Moses. And Aaron added to the love by adding in Aaron's Budding Almond Branch. Later Isaiah would add on and say the Budding Branch is Jesus.
And Solomon would contribute to the life long efforts put up for Solomon, and God, by David. Solomon would take the Light of God to be Powerful and Large.
Like Moses - you have your time now with God.
Like the people of God - you have your time to think what the Light of the World is in your life.
3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
When Jesus lived and moved among us as Grace upon Grace, He did all things well.
The people begged him to lay his hand on him. And taking him aside from the crowd privately, he put his fingers into his ears, and after spitting touched his tongue. And looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” And his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly.
Jesus had what few people of the Bible have - immediacy. What Jesus does is not undone. His Word is to be filled.
I want to say Thank You my ears are better today than in months. I say, with profound gratitude. Thank You, Jesus, Abba, Holy Spirit and ask for Your continued Blessing. We will continue to pray with great joy for the people who have shared their concerns with us. And lift them like the incense You requested in the Tabernacle of Moses to The Book of Revelation. The aroma of Your beloveds' concerns is wonderful to You.
Blessings abound and with Your Help, we will see them. Be the Light revealing Your Goodness to open hearts, open minds, open eyes and open ears. In Jesus we will see Your Glory. Amen.
