Terumah Exodus 25 Rock of Israel Feb 20, 2021

THIS WEEKS PARSHA IS T’RUMAH WHICH MEANS OFFERING OR CONTRIBUTION FROM EX. 25:1-2: THEN THE LORD SPOKE TO MOSES, SAYING, TELL THE SONS OF ISRAEL TO RAISE A CONTRIBUTION FOR ME; FROM EVERY MAN WHOSE HEART MOVES HIM YOU SHALL RAISE MY CONTRIBUTION.

WORSHIP MUST ALWAYS COME FIRST. GOD DID NOT WAIT UNTIL ISRAEL WAS SETTLED IN THE LAND TO INSTRUCT THEM IN WORSHIP. HE SAW IT AS A PRIORITY AND PLANNED FOR IT FROM THE OUTSET.

THIS TAUGHT GOD’S PEOPLE NEED TO ALWAYS PLACE GOD FIRST IN THEIR LIVES. OUR GOD HAS TAUGHT US “SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE ADDED TO YOU.

THE REASON GOD ALLOWED THEM TO “PLUNDER” THE EGYPTIANS OF THEIR GOODS WAS NOT FOR PERSONAL OR NATIONAL GAIN AND GLORY, BUT TO PROVIDE FOR THEIR WORSHIP OF THE LIVING GOD.

SO GOD HERE INSTRUCTED MOSES TO TELL THE PEOPLE TO BRING A FREEWILL OFFERING. GOD REQUIRES GIFTS FROM WILLING WORSHIPERS. THIS  IS NOT FOR HIS SAKE BUT FOR OURS.

WHEN WE GIVE TO HIM IT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT ALL WE HAVE BELONGS TO HIM. WE ARE CALLED TO WALK WITH GOD WITH AN OPEN HAND SO THAT HE MAY TAKE FROM US AND SO THAT HE MAY GIVE TO US.

EXODUS 25 COULD BE DIVIDED NEATLY INTO FOUR SECTIONS. THE FIRST PART IS IN V 1-9 WHERE WE’RE INTRODUCED TO GOD’S PLAN FOR THE BUILDING OF THE TABERNACLE AND ALL ITS FURNISHINGS.

THIS SECTION ALSO INCLUDES THE CALL TO GIVE SO THAT ALL THE ELEMENTS NECESSARY FOR ITS CONSTRUCTION COULD BE SUPPLIED BY GOD’S PEOPLE.

THE SECOND PART OF THE CHAPTER IS IN VERSES 10-22 WHERE WE GET THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE ARK OF THE COVENANT.  

THE THIRD PART OF THE CHAPTER IS IN VERSES 23–30, WHERE WE’RE GIVEN INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING THE BREAD OF THE PRESENCE.  

AND THE FOURTH PART OF THE CHAPTER IS FOUND IN VERSES 31 – 40, WHERE WE GET THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE GOLDEN MENORAH WHICH FIGURES SO MUCH IN ISRAEL’S PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE.  

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE TABERNACLE AND HOW IT FORESHADOWS THE MESSIAH AND OUR WORSHIP IN THE NEW COVENANT I ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS ON ZOOM AT 7:00 PM WHERE I AM FINISHING UP MY VERSE BY VERSE STUDIES IN GENESIS AND WILL BE MOVING ON TO EXODUS.

FIVE NAMES IN SCRIPTURE DESCRIBE THE TABERNACLE. IT WAS CALLED

  1. “A SANCTUARY” (EX. 25:8), INDICATING THAT IT WAS SET APART FOR A HOLY GOD.
  1. “TABERNACLE”(EX. 25:9) WHICH TELLS US THAT IT WAS THE DWELLING PLACE OF GOD AMONG HIS PEOPLE.
  1. “TENT” (EX. 26:36) WHICH DESIGNATED IT AS A TEMPORARY DWELLING PLACE OF GOD.
  1. IT WAS ALSO CALLED “THE TABERNACLE OF THE CONGREGATION” (EX. 29:42) BECAUSE IT WAS WHERE GOD MET WITH HIS PEOPLE AND ALSO CALLED: 
  1. “THE TABERNACLE OF TESTIMONY” (EX. 38:21), BECAUSE OF THE TORAH GIVEN TO MOSES, WHICH WAS KEPT IN THE ARK OF THE COVENANT LOCATED IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES.

THIS MORNING I WANT TO CONCENTRATE ON VERSES 1 – 9 AND ON VERSE 40, BECAUSE EXODUS 25 SETS FORTH KEY SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES FOR TRUE WORSHIP.

IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN TO MOSES FOR THE SANCTUARY AND ITS FURNISHINGS, THERE ARE 5 KEY PRINCIPLES FOR WORSHIP.  

IN THESE VERSES, WE FIND THE CALL TO GIVE FREELY FOR THE BUILDING OF THE TABERNACLE AND THAT EVERYTHING BE CONSTRUCTED EXACTLY AS GOD INSTRUCTS.  

  1. THE FIRST PRINCIPLE WE SEE HERE IS WILLING WORSHIP, AND I MIGHT ADD THAT IT’S COSTLY WORSHIP, THE OFFERING INCLUDES GIVING THINGS WORTH A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY.

WE ARE NOT TO BE CHEAP AND SLIPSHOD WITH THE PLACE WHERE GOD IS WORSHIPED.  OUR PLACE OF WORSHIP SHOULD REFLECT HIS GLORY, BEAUTY AND ORDER.  

WHEN THE QUEEN OF SHEBA CAME TO SOLOMON AND SAW THE TEMPLE, HIS PALACE, AND HOW WELL ORDERED IT WAS, SHE WAS OVERWHELMED AND RECOGNIZED THAT THE GOD OF SOLOMON WAS TRULY GOD. 

THAT’S WHY EVERYTHING WE DO HERE AT THE ROCK SHOULD BE DONE WITH PROFESSIONALISM AND BEAUTY. IT’S MY HOPE AND PRAYER THAT GOD WILL RAISE UP A CHILDREN’S MINISTRY HERE ONCE AGAIN.  

AND I’M PRAYING FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE A VISION AND CALLING FOR THIS. IF WE’RE GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL AT THIS WE WILL NEED TO INVEST FUNDS FOR THIS WORK.

WE ALSO SEE IN THESE VERSES GOD’S DESIRE FOR COMMUNION WITH HIS PEOPLE, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF OBEDIENCE IN WORSHIP.

IN VERSES 1-2 GOD COMMANDS MOSES TO RAISE A CONTRIBUTION FOR THE BUILDING OF THE SANCTUARY.  IN VERSE 2, GOD SAYS TELL THE SONS OF ISRAEL TO RAISE A CONTRIBUTION FOR ME.”  FROM EVERY MAN WHOSE HEART MOVES HIM.  THE CONTRIBUTION, IN OTHER WORDS, IS TO BE VOLUNTARY AND FREE.  

THIS IS REMARKABLE CONSIDERING THAT THESE PEOPLE WERE SLAVES; NOTHING THEY’VE DONE UP UNTIL NOW HAS BEEN VOLUNTARY.  NOW COMES THE TIME FOR THEM TO DO WHAT THEY WERE MADE TO DO.  

THEY WERE NOT MADE TO BE SLAVES OF PHARAOH.  THEY WERE MADE TO BE BOND SERVANTS OR SLAVES OF THE LIVING GOD.  YET, THEIR GIFTS FOR BUILDING THE PLACE WHERE THEY’LL MEET THE LIVING GOD WAS TO BE VOLUNTARY.  JUST LIKE OUR CALL AS BOND SERVANTS OF GOD.

THEY ARE TO GIVE FROM WILLING HEARTS.  THEIR CONTRIBUTION IS TO BE VOLUNTARY AND FREE.  THIS SHOULD SPEAK TO US ABOUT OUR OWN WILLINGNESS IN GIVING. 

PAUL SPEAKS OF THIS IN THE NEW COVENANT AS WELL. WE LEARN HERE THAT TRUE WORSHIP IS WILLING WORSHIP.  IT IS TO BE GIVEN BY EVERYONE WHOSE HEART MOVES THEM.  

IF OUR WORSHIP DOESN’T SPRING FROM HEARTS FILLED WITH GRATITUDE FOR GOD’S GRACE AND PROVISION, FROM HEARTS THAT LONG TO WORSHIP THE LIVING GOD, IF IT’S NOT COMING FROM A HEARTFELT RESPONSE FOR WHO HE IS AND WHAT HE’S DONE, THEN OUR WORSHIP IS IN VAIN.  

GOD IS SAYING, HE WANTS AN ATTITUDE IN OUR GIVING THAT FREELY FLOWS FROM GRATEFUL HEARTS FULL OF THANKFULNESS AND PRAISE.  

IS THAT OUR ATTITUDE?  DO WE HAVE TO OBSERVE THE SABBATH?  DO WE HAVE TO WORSHIP?  DO I REALLY HAVE TO COME TO SERVICES?  THOSE KINDS OF QUESTIONS COME FROM A HEART THAT’S NOT OVERFLOWING WITH PRAISE TO GOD FOR HIS GOODNESS AND MERCY TOWARD US.  

SO THE VERY FIRST PRINCIPLE WHICH GOD SETS FORTH IN THE SECTION ON WORSHIP IN THE TABERNACLE IS THAT TRUE WORSHIP IS WILLING WORSHIP.  IT IS FREELY OFFERED IN RESPONSE TO GOD’S LOVE. IT IS AN EXPRESSION OF OUR THANKSGIVING FOR WHO HE IS, AND FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE.  

  1. THAT’S NOT THE ONLY THING, THOUGH;  LOOK AT EX 25:3-7.  HERE GOD SHOWS HE IS THE SOURCE OF OUR GIVING.  

THE THINGS THAT HE REQUIRES HERE THE GOLD, SILVER AND BRONZE, BLUE, PURPLE AND SCARLET MATERIAL, FINE LINENS, GOAT HAIR, RAM SKIN, PORPOISE SKIN, ACACIA WOOD, OIL FOR THE MENORAH, SPICES FOR THE ANOINTING OIL AND THE INCENSE, ONYX STONES AND SETTING STONES FOR THE EPHOD AND BREAST PIECE.  

ALL OF THESE ARE COSTLY AND BEAUTIFUL MATERIALS USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS PORTABLE WILDERNESS SANCTUARY.  

WHERE DID ALL THESE ITEMS COME FROM? AS WE SAW GOD PROVIDED THEM WHEN THEY WERE LEAVING EGYPT.  THEY WENT TO THE EGYPTIANS AND BECAUSE OF GOD’S FEAR THAT WAS ON THEM THE EGYPTIANS GAVE THE WEALTH OF EGYPT TO THEM.

TRUE WORSHIP FLOWS FROM UNDERSTANDING THAT IT IS GOD WHO PROVIDES ALL THAT WE HAVE AND GIVE TO HIM.   AND WHAT WE GIVE REVEALS WHAT WE CARE ABOUT.  

GOD CALLS HIS PEOPLE TO GIVE THE BEST, EVEN EXTRAVAGANTLY, AND WHAT WE GIVE REVEALS WHAT WE REALLY CARE ABOUT.  WE LEARN HERE THAT WORSHIP IS COSTLY.  

WHEN GOD STRUCK JERUSALEM WITH A PLAGUE BECAUSE OF DAVID’S SIN, DAVID SOUGHT FORGIVENESS AND GOD’S HAND OF JUDGMENT ENDED. DAVID THEN SET UP AN ALTAR TO OFFER THANKSGIVING AT THE VERY SPOT WHERE THE DEATH ANGEL STOPPED HIS WORK IN JERUSALEM.

THE OWNER OF THAT PROPERTY, WAS A JEBUSITE (THE FORMER OCCUPANTS OF JERUSALEM), WHO SAID TO DAVID, “I’LL GIVE YOU THE SITE, YOU DON’T NEED TO BUY IT FROM ME.”  

WHAT WAS DAVID’S RESPONSE?  “I WILL NOT OFFER A SACRIFICE TO THE LORD THAT COSTS ME NOTHING.”  HE UNDERSTOOD THAT TRUE WORSHIP OF GOD COMES FREELY AND WILLINGLY FROM OUR HEARTS, AND SHOULD BE COSTLY.”  

AND WE SEE THAT PRINCIPLE RIGHT HERE IN EXODUS 25.

  1. WE SEE A THIRD THING IN VERSE 8, LET THEM CONSTRUCT A SANCTUARY (MIKDASH FROM KODESH OR HOLY) FOR ME. THIS IS THE TABERNACLE OR MISHKAN (FROM SHAKAN “TO DWELL) THE PLACE OF GOD’S PRESENCE IN THE MIDST OF ISRAEL.

THE GOD OF ALL CREATION IS CALLING ISRAEL TO BUILD HIM A TENT, NOT A PALACE, NOT A CASTLE, NOT A CATHEDRAL, BUT A TENT.

GOD IS DEMONSTRATING THAT UNLIKE THE GODS OF THE WORLD WHO REQUIRE ORNATE TEMPLES, GOD ONLY ASKS FOR A TENT WHERE HE MIGHT MEET WITH HIS PEOPLE.

IN 2 SAMUEL 7:6 DAVID WAS BURDENED IN HIS HEART TO BUILD A TEMPLE FOR THE LORD.  HE SENSED THE DISPROPORTION, HE WAS DWELLING IN A PALACE IN JERUSALEM AND THE ARK OF THE COVENANT, THE VERY SYMBOL OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD WITH ISRAEL, WAS DWELLING IN A TENT.  

SO, HE SPEAKS WITH NATHAN AND HE SAYS, “NATHAN THIS ISN’T RIGHT.” I’M IN A PALACE AND GOD’S DWELLING IS IN A TENT. I WANT TO BUILD A PALACE, A TEMPLE, A HOUSE FOR GOD.  

AND NATHAN SAYS, THE DESIRE OF YOUR HEART IS GOOD, DAVID, GO AHEAD AND DO IT.  BUT THEN GOD COMES TO NATHAN AND SAYS “I HAVE DWELT IN A TENT WITH MY PEOPLE FROM THE TIME THAT I CALLED THEM OUT OF EGYPT.  WHEN DID I EVER ASK THEM TO BUILD A PALACE FOR ME?”  

AND HE GOES ON TO SAY, “YOU WON’T BUILD ME A HOUSE.  I’LL BUILD YOU A HOUSE.”  HE EXPERIENCED GOD’S HUMILITY.  IF HIS PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE IN THE WILDERNESS, GOD WANTS TO BE IN A TENT WITH THEM IN THEIR MIDST.  

WE SEE GOD’S LOVE AND GRACE AND THIS IS WHAT WE SEE IN JOHN 1:14, “THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND DWELT IN A TENT (A TEMPORARY BODY) AMONG US.”  

PLACED IN THIS TENT WAS THE ARK OF THE COVENANT, THE SYMBOL OF HIS PRESENCE. WE LEARN HERE HOW COMMITTED GOD IS TO DWELLING IN THE MIDST OF HIS PEOPLE.  SO, THIS IS THE THIRD PRINCIPLE OF WORSHIP.  THERE IS NO REAL WORSHIP POSSIBLE APART FROM ABIDING IN GOD’S HUMILITY.  

THERE IS NO WAY THAT WE CAN HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD UNLESS HE HUMBLES HIMSELF TO MEET WITH US AND FOR US TO BE HUMBLE BEFORE HIM.  GOD RESISTS THE PROUD BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO SUGGEST THAT THE GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT IS DIFFERENT FROM THE GOD OF THE NEW AND HERE IN TORAH WE SEE THE KENOSIS. THE EMPTYING PHIL. 2:3-8

DO NOTHING FROM SELFISHNESS OR EMPTY CONCEIT, BUT WITH HUMILITY OF MIND REGARD ONE ANOTHER AS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOURSELVES; DO NOT MERELY LOOK OUT FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL INTERESTS, BUT ALSO FOR THE INTERESTS OF OTHERS. HAVE THIS ATTITUDE IN YOURSELVES WHICH WAS ALSO IN MESSIAH JESUS, WHO, ALTHOUGH HE EXISTED IN THE FORM OF GOD, DID NOT REGARD EQUALITY WITH GOD A THING TO BE GRASPED, BUT EMPTIED HIMSELF, TAKING THE FORM OF A BOND-SERVANT, AND BEING MADE IN THE LIKENESS OF MEN. BEING FOUND IN APPEARANCE AS A MAN, HE HUMBLED HIMSELF BY BECOMING OBEDIENT TO THE POINT OF DEATH, EVEN DEATH ON A CROSS.

THE GOD OF ISRAEL, THE LORD OF HOSTS, THE CREATOR OF THE WORLD, IS SAYING HERE, “WHAT I WOULD WANT YOU TO MAKE ME, A TENT, SO THAT I CAN BE WITH YOU.”  

  1. THIS LEADS US TO THE 4TH PRINCIPLE OF WORSHIP LOOK AT V 8.  GOD TELLS MOSES WHY HE WANTS THE TENT, SO THAT HE MAY DWELL AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT POINT; HE DOESN’T WANT THE TENT SO THAT HE CAN DWELL IN IT.  EVEN WHEN SOLOMON WILL LATER BUILD A GLORIOUS, TEMPLE, HE KNOWS THAT GOD WILL NOT DWELL IN THAT TEMPLE.  

NOTHING MAN CAN CREATE, CAN CONTAIN THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH. THE TEMPLE, IN FACT THE EARTH ITSELF, IS A FOOTSTOOL TO HIM.  

THE TABERNACLE ISN’T A PLACE THAT GOD WILL DWELL INSIDE.  NOTICE MOSES WORDS AGAIN, “THAT HE MAY DWELL AMONG HIS PEOPLE.”  NOT SO THAT GOD CAN DWELL IN THE TENT, BUT THE TENT IS FOR HIM TO DWELL AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  

GOD IS SAYING, “I WANT TO BE IN THE TENT SO THAT I CAN BE IN THE MIDST OF YOU.  I WANT TO BE WITH YOU. IT SPEAKS OF FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD.  THE AIM, THE GOAL OF WORSHIP, IS FELLOWSHIP WITH THE LIVING GOD.  

WE SEE THIS CLEARLY THAT THE TABERNACLE IS IN THE CENTER OF ISRAEL, THE TWELVE TRIBES SURROUNDING IT, A CLEAR PICTURE OF GOD DWELLING WITH THEM.  THE TABERNACLE WAS COMMANDED BY GOD SO THAT HE MAY DWELL AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  

AND THAT SHOWS US THAT GOD’S PURPOSES OF WORSHIP, THAT HIS PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT THE GOAL OF HIS COVENANT IS THAT THEY WILL BE HIS PEOPLE AND HE WILL BE THEIR GOD. 

THE GOAL OF WORSHIP, LIKE THE GOAL OF THE COVENANT, IS COMMUNION WITH THE LIVING GOD.  AND IF OUR WORSHIP AIMS FOR ANYTHING LESS, IT’S NOT WORSHIP.  

IN WORSHIP WE COME TO GIVE TO GOD THE GLORY DUE HIS NAME AND WE COME TO DRAW NEAR TO HIM.  AS A HUSBAND COMES FOR HIS BRIDE, GOD COMES TO US.  ISRAEL WAS GOD’S WIFE. SHE COMMITTED ADULTERY AND GOD DIVORCED HER BUT HE NEVER REMARRIED.

THE NEW COVENANT IS THE PROVISION GOD MADE TO REMARRY HIS DIVORCED WIFE ISRAEL.  GENTILES NOW BY THEIR FAITH ARE ALLOWED TO BE PARTAKERS WITH ISRAEL OF THIS BETROTHAL.  THEY BECOME THE BRIDE OF MESSIAH WITH JEWS WHO TRUST IN MESSIAH, WHO IS THE GOD AND KING OF ISRAEL.

THERE’S ONE OTHER THING IN VERSE 9, WE READ, “ACCORDING TO ALL THAT I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU.”  THE TABERNACLE WAS TO BE DONE EXACTLY AS GOD SHOWED MOSES ON THE MOUNTAIN.  

  1. GOD WANTS HIS WORD AND OUR OBEDIENCE TO IT TO BE THE FOCUS OF OUR WORSHIP.

WE SEE HERE THE EMPHASIS ON GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS, AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S REVEALED INSTRUCTIONS.  WE ARE TO DO ONLY WHAT GOD TELLS US TO DO IN WORSHIP.  WE ARE TO WORSHIP GOD ACCORDING TO HIS DIRECTIONS.

“AND MOSES DID ALL THAT THE LORD COMMANDED HIM,” WHICH IS REPEATED OVER AND OVER AND EMPHASIZES THIS POINT.  IN OTHER WORDS, GOD’S WORSHIP IS TO BE CAREFULLY ORDERED ACCORDING TO HIS INSTRUCTIONS, NOT ACCORDING TO OUR TASTE, OUR WHIMS, OUR DESIRES.  

GOD DEMANDS THAT THE TABERNACLE AND ITS FURNISHINGS BE MADE EXACTLY AS WAS SHOWN ON THE MOUNTAIN.  

WORSHIP IS DETERMINED BY GOD AND GOD ALONE.  WHEN WE EVALUATE THE WORSHIP OF GOD WE MUST NOT CALCULATE IT ACCORDING TO OUR OWN TASTES AND INCLINATIONS, BUT RATHER ACCORDING TO WHAT GOD COMMANDS IN HIS WORD.

GOD’S WORD MUST BE CENTRAL IN OUR WORSHIP THAT IS WHY THE TORAH WHICH IS THE FOUNDATION OF ALL SCRIPTURE IS CENTRAL IN OUR WORSHIP, FOR GOD HONORS HIS WORD AND THE PERSON WHO HONORS HIS WORD.

IN OUR SINGING IN OUR PRAYERS IN ALL THAT WE DO IN WORSHIP IT MUST BE DONE ACCORDING TO HIS WORD OR IT WILL NOT BE WORSHIP ACCEPTABLE TO HIM.

THE FURTHER WE GET AWAY FROM WHAT GOD WANTS, AND THE CLOSER WE GET TO OUR OWN PERSONAL TASTES OR EVALUATIONS OF STYLE, THE FURTHER WE STRAY FROM BIBLICAL WORSHIP AND THE LESS WE ACTUALLY WORSHIP THE LIVING GOD.  

GOD DETERMINES HOW WE WORSHIP HIM, BECAUSE JUST AS WHO AND WHAT WE WORSHIP DEFINES US AND WHAT WE WILL BECOME: HOW WE WORSHIP DETERMINES WHO WE WORSHIP.

WORSHIP IS COSTLY, IT FLOWS FROM GOD’S PROVISION FOR US,

WORSHIP COMES WHEN WE UNDERSTAND THAT GOD HUMBLED HIMSELF AND CALLS US HUMBLE OURSELVES. 

WORSHIP IS KNOWING THAT GOD DESIRES TO DWELL AMONG US, AND WORSHIP MUST BE ACCORDING TO HIS WORD IF IT’S GOING TO BE TRUE WORSHIP.
