LIFE of the one coming to it! Thus, Terumah indicates it is a physicaldemonstration of our being elevated
lifted up as an offering, a gift, the Bridecreated for her husband, who gives her body to him. 1Cor. 6:19, 20. You are NOTyour own once you accept the price the Ark required
the death of the One whoentered the bitter waters on your behalf!
A Willing Heart…
II. The one requirement of YHVH was that of a willing heart:
Willing, #5068, nadab, to offer, be offered, to incite, impel. Do youremember this word? It is the name of one of the sons of Aaron who was onthe Mountain of Yah
Sinai with Moshe and the Elders, the next in line asHigh Priest, and finally, the one along with Abihu, destroyed by fire. Hisgrandfather was `Ammiynadab. The word Ammi means My People.
Nadab as a Priest represented the Bride who had been elevated
liftedup, belonging to YHVH
. All those from the loins of Ammiynadab, wouldbecome a people offered! He is the great
grandfather of Boaz who fathersJesse, who fathers David!Ironically, Nadab is burned with fire, the punishment for an Adulterous Bride whois of the priestly lineage!
Heart, #3820, leb, heart, mind, etc. The Lamed in front
to teach, urge,instruct, the Bet
house, wife. If this order is compromised and the Bet isplace in front of the Lamed we have Bel, the Chief Babylonian god to whomIsrael constantly resorted. The first letter of Torah is Bet, the last letter (seenin the word Israel) is this Lamed, forming the heart
Lev of YHVH. TheLamed indicates The Shepherd who guards His Bride. Every letter in theTorah sums up His love for her and that love returned. The Sages teach theletters represent the People of YHVH, if one letter is missing or corrupted, theentire scroll is lost. Yahshua had to become the Living Scroll who wouldHimself be lifted up
elevated (Jn. 12: 32) in order to elevate or draw us toHim.
Take, #3947, laqach, to take, seize, to take in marriage. Only those whobrought a proper offering, which would indicate if their heart was in fact His,could be elevated. The offerings indicated where their true treasure lay. Matt.6:21.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also
. What free-will
