Devar TORAH: Terumah (offering)
Scripture: Shemoth (Exodus) 25:1-27:19
Mishkan David: Building Presence (Outer Court - me/0NE)
There are three steps to enter the Holy of Holies: 1. God provides. 2. We hear and start obeying. 3. We become ONE.
1st Step (Sex, Food, Shelter) Perpetual: God provides. From the time of creation down through Avraham, Isaac and Jacob God provides. When they went to Egypt God provided. When leaving Egypt, AM ISRAEL was provided for, by God, with the things they needed and would need in the future. They followed His instructions when leaving Egypt to borrow items from the Egyptians. The Egyptians gave them whatever they asked for (as per God).
2nd Step (Wealth, Power) Perpetual: We hear and start obeying. AM ISRAEL brought everything that was asked of them by God through Moses to build the Tabernacle. They brought so much there was more than enough.
3rd Step (Knowledge, Heart of Israel) Perpetual: We become ONE – Cause/Effect. What Echad has said (cause) is coming to pass (effect). We are becoming the Tabernacle that makes us ONE!!!
Instructions are given as to how the Temple is to be built – what goes where, etc. Again I go to Isaiah 30:19-22: Teacher has appeared – this is the path to follow! Instructions are given by Echad to Moses as to what goes where, why and how – this is the path, walk in it – AM ISRAEL!!!
