    Divine Ordering

    Hello there, Exodus 26 is where the thread, in which turns are taken by members to quote consecutive verses from Scripture, has reached. Which details the divine instructions for the making of the tabernacle. It is so precise and ordered, and the pattern had to be observed to the last detail: and it causes me to wonder, yet again, at the fine embroidered work on the robes worn by priests in the churches of today, and ask by what authority and to whose pattern they are made? In Christ Jesus Chris
  2. 'And thou shalt make a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, .. and fine twined linen of cunning work: .... with cherubims shall it be made: And thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of shittim wood overlaid with gold: .. their hooks shall be of gold, upon the four sockets of silver. And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, .. that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: .... and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy. And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place. And thou shalt set the table without the vail, .. the candlestick over against the table .... on the side of the tabernacle toward the south: ...... and thou shalt put the table on the north side. And thou shalt make an hanging for the door of the tent, .. of blue, and purple, and scarlet, .... and fine twined linen, wrought with needlework. And thou shalt make for the hanging five pillars of shittim wood, .. and overlay them with gold, .... and their hooks shall be of gold: ...... and thou shalt cast five sockets of brass for them.

And thou shalt make bars of shittim wood; .. five for the boards of the one side of the tabernacle, .... And five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, ...... and five bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle, ........ for the two sides westward. And the middle bar in the midst of the boards shall reach from end to end. And thou shalt overlay the boards with gold, .. and make their rings of gold for places for the bars: .... and thou shalt overlay the bars with gold.'

Ten cubits shall be the length of a board, ...... and a cubit and a half shall be the breadth of one board. ........ Two tenons shall there be in one board, set in order one against another: .......... thus shalt thou make for all the boards of the tabernacle. And thou shalt make the boards for the tabernacle, .. twenty boards on the south side southward. And thou shalt make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards; .. two sockets under one board for his two tenons, .... and two sockets under another board for his two tenons. And for the second side of the tabernacle .. on the north side there shall be twenty boards: And their forty sockets of silver; .. two sockets under one board, ... .and two sockets under another board. And for the sides of the tabernacle westward .. thou shalt make six boards. And two boards shalt thou make for the corners of the tabernacle in the two sides. ..

(Exodus 26:15-24) Praise God!
  5. 'Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about. And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof round about. And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof. Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the staves to bear the table. And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them. And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.

  6. 'And the LORD said unto Moses, .. "Come up to me into the mount, and be there: .... and I will give thee tables of stone, ...... and a law, and commandments which I have written; ........ that thou mayest teach them."

"Tarry ye here for us, until we come again unto you: .... and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: ...... if any man have any matters to do, ........ let him come unto them." And Moses went up into the mount, .. and a cloud covered the mount. ...... And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, ........ and the cloud covered it six days: .......... and the seventh day He called unto Moses ............ out of the midst of the cloud.

I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; .. lest the land become desolate, .... and the beast of the field multiply against thee. ...... By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, ........ until thou be increased, and inherit the land. And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea .. even unto the sea of the Philistines, .... and from the desert unto the river: ...... for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; ........ and thou shalt drive them out before thee.

    going to hell

    Forgive me, @StJoek, but your question appeared to me to suggest that you were on the outside looking in, rather than as a believer to a fellow believer. Within the love of Christ our Saviour, Chris

    going to hell

    Hello @StJoek, It is not a matter of 'win' or 'lose' where God is concerned. The 'winners' or 'losers' are you or I. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, and the wages of sin is death However, God has provided the means whereby we may be saved from death and it's consequences, on the basis of the sacrificial offering of His Own beloved Son. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ His Son. Yes, through that one all-sufficient sacrifice, whereby Christ took our sin and it's penalty upon Himself and died in our place. we may have life. Resurrection life, in the New Heaven and the New Earth, that He has promised will come, in which righteousness will reign. I hope you will believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and trust God to keep His promise, then you will receive His gift, offered to all, and received by many, yet refused by some. Why should you lose that wondrous gift, on the basis of an unfounded argument. Why not win Christ, and be found, 'in Him', not have a righteousness of your own, but the righteousness which is of God by faith. In Christ Jesus Chris
  21. And he said unto Moses, I thy father in law Jethro am come unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her. And Moses went out to meet his father in law, and did obeisance, and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent. And Moses told his father in law all that the LORD had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, and all the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how the LORD delivered them. And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the LORD had done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians. And Jethro said, "Blessed be the LORD, who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, Who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians. Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly He was above them."' (Exodus 18:6-11) Praise His Holy Name!
  22. 'When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law, heard of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel His people, and that the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt; Then Jethro, Moses' father in law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her back, And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, "I have been an alien in a strange land:" And the name of the other was Eliezer; "for the God of my father," said he, "was mine help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh:" And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of God:' (Exodus 18:1-5) Praise God!
  23. 'And it came to pass, .. when Moses held up his hand, .... that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, .. Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands were heavy; .. and they took a stone, .... and put it under him, ...... and he sat thereon; ........ and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, .......... the one on the one side, ............ and the other on the other side; .............. and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. ................ And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people .................. with the edge of the sword. And the LORD said unto Moses, " Write this for a memorial in a book, .... and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: ...... for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi: ('The Lord is my banner') .. "For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn .... that the LORD will have war with Amalek ...... from generation to generation.' (Exodus 17:11-16) Praise God!
  24. 'Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: Thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. .. And in the greatness of Thine excellency .... Thou hast overthrown them that rose up against Thee: ...... Thou sentest forth Thy wrath, ........ which consumed them as stubble. And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, .. the floods stood upright as an heap, .... and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said," I will pursue, I will overtake, .. I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; .... I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them." Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters. .. Who is like unto Thee, O LORD, among the gods? .... Who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? ...... Thou stretchedst out Thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. ........ Thou in Thy mercy hast led forth the people which Thou hast redeemed: .......... Thou hast guided them in Thy strength unto Thy holy habitation.' (Exodus 15:6-13) Praise God!
