TEXT: EXODUS 25
GOD SAID “LETS MAKES A SANCTUARY FOR HIM”.
WHAT IS BRAZEN ALTER?
IT MEANS MAKING YOUR LIFE THE LORD HOUSE
GOD SAID ‘’LET THEM MAKE ME A SANCTUARY SO I MAY DWELL AMONG THEM’’
AT THE BEGINNING, God created man at the garden of Eden to be with man, they were created perfect, but when sin entered, they could not be with God anymore.
God closed down the garden and put flaming sword to guide the Eden in gen 3 vs 24 and it was placed by cherub, but this is not God plan from the beginning
God did not want man to be away from him, but sin took man from him, since then, he has been working on how to bring man back to himself.
The journey of salvation began with Israel
He sent them to a strange land, he made them slaves and then brought them out of the bondage.
He Separated Israel into the wilderness to make a sanctuary so he can dwell among them. Because God loved man and hates sin.
So wilderness is a place set aside by God to teach his people his ways and laws. In exodus, God gave instruction to Moses after he brought them out of Egypt to build a sanctuary to show them the plan of salvation. So from here we can see that the plan of salvation was to be with God forever.
So brazen alter is me and you as a house kept only for God dwelling.
NOW I BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND WHY GOD TOLD PHARAOH ‘’ LET MY PEOPLE GO INTO THE WILDERNESS THAT THEY MAY SERVE HIM’’
I have been going through wilderness experience all my life
E.g living in western world without working to make dollars as other people, has made me go through though times and financial crises, because God wants me to learn total dependence on him
In the next teaching, I will teach more on what is wilderness?
As he took Israel to wilderness, a dry place where they will be forced to totally depend on God – Deuteronomy 8:1-15
- pray that God will give u grace to make your life the lord place
- Pray for grace to stand every wilderness u are going through in your life
- Pray for God to give u power to overcome sin.
